Documentary Review: 'Accepted' is a Must See Documentary
Accepted is a harrowing story, one that begins triumphantly and slowly devolves into an ambiguous sort of tragedy. Director Dan Chen endeavored to explore the incredible success that was T.M Landry College Prep in Louisiana. This factory school that sent low income kids to Ivy League schools was a viral sensation in 2017. That year, the school uploaded a series of videos showing their students reacting to getting into the college of their choice.
2022 Graduates — It Is That Time Of The Year

Is Free College in the U.S. a Radical Proposal?
During his 2016 campaign for U.S. President, Senator Bernie Sanders made free college part of his progressive agenda. He’s spoken many times about the life-altering changes that could come from making higher education free to all in America. Bernie has even gone so far as to call free college a right as a human being. He also pointed out that many countries in Europe offer some form of free college to their citizens. Immediately, his opponents called it a “radical” idea that would never pass through the U.S. Congress. By the time Senator Sanders ran for President again in 2020, free college was a major talking point in Democratic circles, with many people agreeing that it could change the lives of millions of Americans who would otherwise remain poor and uneducated or saddled with crushing debt for the rest of their lives.

8 Things I Wish I knew Before Starting University
If you're about to start university, you're probably excited—but what's the best way to get ready? University is an exciting time in your life. You're on the brink of adulthood, making your own decisions, and starting to work toward your dreams! But you may be nervous about what lies ahead—who wouldn't be?
As a young girl, I both excelled and struggled at school. When I understood the lesson being taught, I mastered it quickly and easily. When I did not, it was like I had hit a roadblock that no one could break down. Leaving me swinging back and forth between feeling brilliant and also like a complete idiot all of the time. Sometimes, I would experience a whole day, or even week, of feeling quite clever before being flung back into feelings of complete inadequacy. Other times, I would shift back and forth many times in a single day. This was not helped by my love of being around other people and wanting desperately to communicate with them. There is not much time for socializing in the course of an American school day. At least, not when I was a child. These behavioral ‘issues’ or ‘distractions’ as my teachers saw them were treated with bad marks on my report cards and frequent reprimanding at home.

A watermelon in a fairy tale

Binoculars for Young Birders
At the time of our first trip with the Iowa Young Birders (an experience described in another story), our family did not own any binoculars, and I never had one growing up. Since then, several pairs found their way to our home — different sizes, shapes, sharpness, field of view, magnification, phase correction. Features I had no idea about at first. I didn’t know why they mattered and what would be best to purchase for my daughter, then 7 years old and obsessed with looking for birds. Now she’s 13 and has been using various binoculars over the years, so I asked her what she thought about each.
Commitment in the Snow
Another winter season, looking out the window at a large flurry of snowflakes, evoked a sad memory. It was a winter afternoon last year, I was distracted, lying on the windowsill of the classroom looking at the snowflakes falling outside the window, it is like cotton wool, dense simply can not see. The snowflakes fell on my hands, and instantly turned into drops of water, listening to the laughter of students outside the window, my heart added a touch of loneliness and isolation. I did want to find someone to keep me company, and that's when I thought of him, so I turned around and sat down and wrote a note to A, asking him to wait for me after school.
