To tip the tide of the war, I had to kill their captain. So what am I going to do with all these lessons? The doors opened and I pushed my way toward the already full train. I complied, but she showed no signs of approval.
I grew acquainted early on with the fact that I am abnormally tall and stick out about the crowd. Different things to different people, as the situation demanded. Can you explain to yourself or someone else!
But they are not me, those things. No one on the train noticed, not even her mom. Full credit for these essays goes to the original authors and the schools that published them. I explored the stop anew.
But I had never been there so late. In the basement, the emergency generators flooded, and the smell of rotting corpses from the morgue grew, getting stronger with the heat. It would be easy enough to simply describe the people she imagined in childhood as helpers or assistants, and to simply say that as a child she wanted to rule the world.

Just then a bus arrived — apparently hers.I have learned to be humble and to work even harder than my peers to meet their (and my) expectations.
I developed a sense of lightheartedness. When people playfully make fun of my height, I laugh at myself too. This is an essay I wrote for Notre Dame's "try something new" supplement prompt (I got in yesterday!).
It is a grueling work, in which one must use their hands and bodies to complete. Mine is perhaps less realistic. The classics once thrived; it was required curriculum at many private schools.
