When I first moved back to America to attend college, I would call my family every week. Between Skype, Facebook and Snapchat, it often didn’t feel like I was missing that much, despite the thousands of miles between us.
Once, mad at my sister on the way to the grocery store, I bought the sugariest, most fattening snack I could find so that she would gain weight. Another time, mad at a friend for a reason I can’t even recall, I deleted Facebook for three days so that I could pretend not to have seen their messages.
The first page of results that comes up when you type “instant mac and cheese” into google consists almost entirely of recipes. It’s almost as though some people don’t understand the concept of “instant.”
Nuts are a type of fruit with a hard shell and edible seed. However, some of what we refer to as nuts in cooking are not considered nuts by botanists, like my personal favorite nut, the cashew. Nuts are the little seed houses of nature. They contain all the nutrients needed for little baby plants to grow up.
Even the act of running sucks. People stare at you as you slowly jog past them, decked out in the sports clothing you wear once a year. The concept in itself is strange. Why run for fun? The idea is entirely contrary to the great many negative connotations that running has historically: mainly that we normally do it to get away from something bad.
Later, when we realized that library was actually good for something, we would rent videos to watch together. It was on that small screen that I watched The Princess Bride, I was introduced to the Sailor Scouts and that I first saw Totoro.

Hemp is required by the FDA to have a tetrahydrocannabinol (more commonly known as THC) concentration of under 0.3 percent. On the other hand, marijuana can have concentrations at 20 percent or even higher, depending on the strain. So, a word of warning, eating hemp will not make you high, though it is fairly effective as a laxative according to one 2014 study. The reason for this disparity centers around plant sex, or what others might refer to as pollination.
There are over 400 student groups at Hopkins, and you’ll have the opportunity to get to know each of them at the Student Involvement Fair on Sept. 8. Until then check out the eight groups highlighted here.

It’s analogous to the years following puberty in humans (otherwise known as college). However, there is such a thing as a carnivorous caterpillar, though they don’t eat flies.
When I was 11 I met my grandparents for only the third time. I had vague memories of them from my toddlerhood. Here was a grandfather with a crooked smile, a grandmother who really liked floral print, but I was keenly aware, even back then, that I didn’t actually know anything about either of them. But now was my chance. I could finally know them as more than photographs and the occasional anecdote from my mother’s childhood.
There are two species of Turkeys, Meleagris gallopavo and meleagris ocellata. Gallopavo turkeys are native throughout North America and are confusingly referred to as both the domestic turkey and the wild turkey. The other species of turkey is native to the Yucatán Peninsula.
