Hey guys! So a bit of background around this post- in my English class last week, we were given a list of "public intellectuals." Our assignment was to choose one of these people, write a brief biography on who they were, and then write an analysis about one of their pieces of writing. I chose the article "True Colors" by Malcolm Gladwell to write about, which outlines the history of hair dye and how it relates to feminism. I found the idea to be interesting, and thought some of you guys might enjoy it too- so below is the paper I wrote last week for English. I know this post is slightly different, so tell me what you think! If you want to read Malcolm Gladwell's original article, you can find it here. Enjoy! :)
Shopping can be fun if it's just a casual day out to the mall to look around. But more often than not, I find shopping stressful- especially when I'm supposed to have something by a certain time and then I have to rush to get it. Then there's the one type of shopping that is an exquisite waste of time, and that extra special one is car shopping. Car shopping can be fun if you can drive, or if you're getting a new car just for yourself, or if you know anything about cars at all. Unfortunately, I fit into zero of those categories, but I tagged along anyway with my family as we sought to find a new car for my brother.
The entire field of science has always been so spectacular. I find the joy of science in the fact that it's mostly full of people who have failed in their experiments or endeavors but still have the drive to create something revolutionary just to help someone or to learn more about the endless amount of things in and beyond our world. Obviously, there are many different aspects to science, and sometimes they can be controversial- these are usually the innovations that combine the best of both science and technology. Recently, however, I came across some biotechnology marvels that are so fascinating and creative that I felt inspired just by hearing about them.
