We touched down around nine in the evening. The plane glided over the tarmac as the captain’s voice crackled through the intercom - “ladies and gentlemen, welcome to San Francisco.” As we reached the gate, the plane eased to a stop in front of the expansive airport windows. A collective meta...

The first time I went to visit them, it almost looked like an empty classroom; the lights were off, and there were only a few figures stationary in the darkness. I creaked open...

I first went to Game Club during my sophomore year. It was an accident in many ways; I’d seen the display my freshman year at the Club Fair, and shown an interest, but turned away because it was on math team day. However, as my interests have strayed from math to fun, I rediscovered this club. They ...
