Is Rose Quartz Not What We Think? (Steven Universe)

Everyone says Rose saw the beauty in everything, that she was kind to all, and did what was right for Earth. I, however, think that this is just one side of Rose. The only side that they saw. I actually think Rose was not so great of a person, or gem, for that matter. Don’t believe me? Just think about it. What part of Rose did everyone else see? The part where she created Steven? Or where she grew moss? Even the part where she cared for the members of her team. We saw how she protected Earth, and how she let Garnet be a fusion– I believe that this is only one part of Rose. You may not have noticed some things that don’t exactly make her the gem that everyone portrays her to be. (more…)

Living with Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a disorder that affects a person’s ability to think, feel, and behave. Schizophrenia affects people differently. Some might have hallucinations, while others may hear voices. Those with this disorder have to deal with these things whether they like it or not. They lose all sense of reality and are basically living in a “fairytale”. Many people with schizophrenia have to live like this because they don’t believe anything is wrong with them —they believe everything is fine. Those who don’t get help with this disorder usually go onto become homeless (6%) or are put away in homes that will treat them with the help they desperately need. (more…)

Coaches and Fairy Tales

Hello NEAAAT, do you remember when you were younger? Did you read or believe in fairy-tales? Well, I know that you don’t have to be young to love them!

Or even like Coach Spruill who was always fond of Beauty and the Beast because he believes “in the innate goodness of humanity, even if that goodness is covered up by our baser nature”. (more…)

Einstein’s Riddle

Einstein’s Riddle or the Five Houses Riddle is said to have been invented by Einstein. He said that ninety-eight percent of the world would not be able to solve it. Though this is only a myth, this riddle is exceptionally hard to solve. It is a logic puzzle that makes “solvers” use simple (so it seems until you try it) deduction. It took me about an hour to solve this riddle so you may take less time or more time, it depends on how concentrated you are. (more…)

Anthrocity: The Map to the Diamond

“Long ago, there was a species called, ‘Hoo-mans’ they evolved into what we are now. There is an ancient story from long ago… There was a nation called Brittania. It was an island nation with a beautiful Queen named Victoria. She had an amazing diamond named the Koh-i-Noor. One day, they hid the diamond, in a remote jungle. They have a map, but it was lost to time.” said Rika. “It was never found.” (more…)
