When you think of twins, you might imagine the closest the human race will ever come to true clones. Clothed in identical genes, these biological copycats roam the earth with only subtle implications of a unique identity.

It is no secret that I have always wanted to become a doctor. Growing up, there were the old photos-on-the-fridge renditions of halloween parties in which I, a naive and toothy first grader, was dressed in oversized scrubs and a bellowing lab coat. I  was eagerly brandishing my plastic stethoscope. Even as...

Take a moment and think of what “being a man” means to you. Is it being able to bench press 240 pounds and still add more weight?

Olive green. It's a color I’ve never been fond of. It’s murky, uninviting and reminds me of a boggy creek. This also embodies how I viewed my life prior to the beginning of the school year.
