Sounds of gravel grinding under the tires are drowned out by a cacophony of brays, the wheezing and trumpeting far from the “hee-haw” that children learn in school. Searching for corn among the pebbles on the driveway, the chickens seem unaffected by the presence of the car. Ears perked, a buckskin horse trots to the fence while a pony hangs back, stirring up dust with a stamp of his foot. The tapping of my fingers on the seatbelt buckle matches...

These words turned into a ditty that I hummed as I walked to school that...

Dear Future Roommate, I classify myself as both an early bird and a night owl. It is during the late hours of the night and the early hours of the morning that I find myself to be the most productive creatively. Often, this is when I will begin projects in the form of short stories or paper crafts or zentangles, intricate doodles that start with a scribble and turn into an elaborate design. On the topic of stories, I enjoy...

Personally, most of this had to do with cost. At the same time, the school I ended up at was anything but cheap. Looking over the Facebook pages for each school helped me a lot. I learned that some schools had a large population...
