“I am a stockpile of chemical toys. My body is a deadly gadget.” — By Margaret Atwood  

I live in a place where I can afford to spend my life growing my mind. I don’t have to worry when my next meal will be or where I’ll sleep tonight. While I sit here writing, people are being killed, working potentially dangerous jobs in factories with minimal pay, and cutting down the forests that help maintain the health of our planet. Parts of the world are suffering while I sit back and complain about homework assignments in my little bubble. In some way, I am part of the problem.
