My experience at Poetry at Round Top festival was frightening, soothing, enlightening, and overwhelming. While I walked the beautiful grounds with my name-tag, my self-proclaimed title of “emerging writer” was starting to feel like an albatross.

I think it’s about time we finally put a stop to beating this poor, dead horse. Ever since the early 2000s, video games have been under heavy fire for being conducive to violent behavior.

To say that Malcolm Young had an impact...
