Rick Grimes has done a great job in keeping (some) people alive in the “apocalypse.” He is strong, determined, respected, kind, and also very, very, very stupid. We all think we know how to survive in an apocalypse and Rick does too. He tries (could do better) his best to be a leader/savior or what...

For three weeks, I knew that on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 9:45am, I had to do my IB oral presentation. I set an alarm for two weeks before, one week before, a day before and an hour before, just so that I would remember to study. But what did I do every time I saw the reminder pop up? Yep, that’s...

Shakespeare and his works are notorious for being taught in English class, with everything from Romeo and Juliet to Hamlet being drilled into our brains since freshman year. Shakespeare is famous for those scripts, but one day, whilst doing my mountains of English homework, I had a thought. Wh...

 Children get put in a sack by men with black face on in the middle of the night, then get beaten with sticks while still in the bag, and then finally get thrown on a boat to Spain. No, this isn’t the beginning of Taken 4, it’s Dutch Christmas. In the Netherlands, Christmas is a little differen...
