With the cacophony of noise, the potential for being whacked by low-hanging branches, and the oppressive heat, I am perfectly content on my John Deere riding lawnmower. It's ironic, but among these less-than-pleasant factors, I find myself completely at peace. Of course, one doesn't usually associate mowing the lawn with peacefulness. Such serenity is only achieved by the innovative technology that is the noise-cancelling headphone. With a pair of these, I can shut out the endless drone of the lawnmower,...

Advice to high school students before graduation: Carpe diem. The ancient Latin motto still rings true today, and I believe it serves as excellent advice for my fellow high school students across the country. Indeed, I would advise these students to seize the day, to live life to the fullest, and to avail themselves to the numerous opportunities high school has to offer. As young students, we do in fact have almost limitless opportunities. When else in life can we have a 2-month+ summer break to pursue whatever we want? When else can we play a sport and on Friday...
