Music to Match the Mood

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jagoda szostakiewicz Oct 18, 2013. 8 Replies

Music provides us with escapes from the real world, places a beat inside of us that just makes us move, and sometimes helps us do our homework. Every genre can be connected to a mood or action. What…Continue

A Penumbra of Life Itself

If you’ve ever wanted to read a book about an Illuminati for books, led by old men in old suits instead of Beyonce, then Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, A Novel by Robin Sloan is the perfect match for you. I realize that this is a very abstract, specific-and-probably-has-never-come-across-your-mind type of book, but that’s the beauty of reading this book. Like Clay Jannon, when we delve into the story of Mr. Penumbra and his dust-laden book store, we are overcome with a sense something new…See More

The Wicked Truth

A part of our identity as Americans is the story of the girl with the precious slippers who fell into the winds of a storm and found herself in the land of magic, Munchkinlanders, and a yellow sidewalk cleverly named the “Yellow Brick Road.” Yup…that’s right. I’m talking about the famous Girl Hick Somehow Travels to a Fantasy World Through a Tornado Because Screw Logic, also known as L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. However, every character must have had a life before the “hero” came…See More

Trending, But Hopefully Ending

With the close of an old year (2014) and the beginning of a new year (2015), the entirety of social media should prepare itself for the army of "Top ____ List of 2014" that will increasingly pull us away from our current lives as we reminisce on this past year. Now, only because I'm a bandwagoner at heart, I chose to make my own "Top" list. Thus, here is my list of the Top 10 Twitter Fads of 2014.10. #RelationshipGoalsMatching groutfits. Pizza with a side of Frozen. Couple’s tattoo of an…See More

Adam Bieda commented on Taylor Origer's blog post Is AP English worth taking?
"Same here, Ellen. I'd be so bored in a regular English class. Not because of the curriculum itself, but because  students who find themselves in the regular-track English class aren't driven to excel in literature and language since…"

"I agree with Ally that hope is one of the strongest motivating factors to wake up in the morning. Hope can be a great tool in having the confidence to act a certain way or strive for particular goals. However, like Ally mentioned, a persisting hope…"

"I don't think it's right to change the past given the opportunity. It seems as though Stephen King is employing the "butterfly effect" to explain the fates of various characters. By this I mean that each changed event he…"

Adam Bieda commented on Ally Chamberlin's blog post All Utopias are Dystopias
"The whole idea of a utopian society was first established to identify the flaws in our society by creating a new society that lacked such problems. In my opinion, utopia and dystopia are loosely synonymous because they both fail to address the…"

"With the whole Ebola thing going on I feel this is very relevant. I'm not a germs phone, but disease is always a scary concept. In regards to your question I feel like the past affects our actions much more than the future. We tend to (in…"

"Your blog was very entertaining to read! I thought you did a really good job of connecting the novel to a real life situation, which made it easy to relate to especially since I haven't read the book. I found the idea of this book to be very…"

"Great blog post, Adam. You certainly have a way with words. Grasshopper Jungle seemed like a daunting read after Mr. Anderson's book review. However, I do enjoy apocalyptic reads so I may have to give this a try. I think it will be one of the…"

"Very nice post. I would say that, at least for me, the past will have a slightly smaller impact on my decisions. The future is very influential for me, mostly because of how I want to be able to get a favorable outcome from a situation, so a lot of…"

Emily McHugh commented on Adam Bieda's blog post The Beginning of the End
"This is so good, Adam. I think one's past has more influence on their decisions. This is because every choice we have made has taught us a different lesson. These lessons help individuals grow. People want to progress in life and reminding…"

The Beginning of the End

Posted on October 22, 2014 at 9:30pm 10 Comments

As I sit in the O’Hare airport, terminal 3, gate L7, fourth row, first chair, two hours before lift off (I’m not mad or anything), I can hear more than one crying baby, see more than one preteen scrolling through his phone, and smell more than one abstract body odor mixed with a McDonald’s hash brown and Starbucks vanilla bean frap. Consequently, I can’t help but think about Andrew Smith’s Grasshopper Jungle. Thousands of people come to this airport every day—I…
