An Unwarranted Surmise
Author's Note: I have an activity for you before you begin. If you have not read or did not complete 'Great Expectations,' please read the BEAUTIFUL Chapter 59 starting from the phrase about halfway through, "I secretly intended to revisit the site of the old house." Note themes of land reconstruction and old friendship. Please utilize all media as essential parts in the story's experience.
'Clouds in the Summer'
Reading Music Please utilize all media as essential to the story. I promise I stopped searching for you. And I promise, I’m not trying to pull you back to me. You left me in the dust, and for good reason, but a string on my heart still hurts whenever I try to yank it. I don't believe in the burning necessity of closure.
Fresh Greens and Garlicky Garbanzo Beans
Easy Green with Plenty of Protein On a fine summer day, my mother could not stop talking about salad. I was doing homework and hardly paying attention to my surroundings, when all of a sudden, I smelled the wonderful aroma of garlic followed by the crackling of the skillet and the scraping of the spatula. She called me into the kitchen to show me that she made something different. We weren't quite sure what exactly to call it. Since the essence of this wonderful meal was garbanzo beans and salad, we looked at each other and said “Garbanzo salad?” That name could not stick for me because when I tried to Google a similar recipe with the term garbanzo salad, the search returned nothing but straight-garbanzo beans. What we had done was use garlic-flavored garbanzo beans to top a caesar salad.

The name in the credits Top Story - April 2022
In high school, I knew I wanted to be a writer of some sort, and I knew that I had a passion for fiction, creating art, writing lyrics, and playing piano. A good movie would always make me stop and reflect on why it made me feel a certain way. Romantic plots gave me the hope of finding an undeniable connection with someone as well as kindness, happiness, and triumph in life. I was 17 years old looking for something to watch on the streaming platforms when I found a romantic drama titled Listen to Your Heart about a musician who writes music for a woman who cannot hear his songs. I casually watched the opening credits and then noticed the name Kent Moran appearing a handful of times- more than I was used to seeing- so I naturally had to research him.
The Four Suns
Mariah Frey hiked the safe parts of the forbidden dryland with her archaeology class. People of the marine cities understood that life above water was impossible. What lived in that place before them was a mystery- a dangerous mystery, a fickle study. No one knew how humanity began in underwater cities. Who or what created the artificial conditions for survival that were based on the above land? There must have been centuries of scientific breakthroughs, but what those humans left the marine-dwellers is a complex mystery. Every trace of humanity’s origins is lost like treasure, and Mariah was one of the people determined to help find the answers.
The Social Dilemma
Social media is a festival of sharing. Agreements on controversial subjects intend to be passed down like an extreme telephone game- one whisper to the next. A shared or original post is not perceived as the user’s property, but public property.
Dear new year, I have a lot to get done, so let’s plan it out
I've waited for this year my entire life- the year where I'm freshly graduated and choosing my own work. I no longer have to work long shifts to come home to assignments. Now, after and during my work-from-home shifts, I can get projects done that I actually enjoy! 2021 is the year for me to create and market my stories, music, and art.
