“We are at a unique stage in our history. Never before have we had such an awareness of what we are doing to the planet, and never before have we had the power to do something about that. Surely we all have a responsibility to care for our Blue Planet. The future of humanity and indeed, all life on earth, now depends on us.”
- Sir David Attenborough

Look up in the sky. What do you see flying, could it be a bird, maybe even a plane? Or is it one of our superheroes.
In this modern world that we live in, superheroes are seen as people (or aliens) in costume, defending the common folk from the “forces of evil.” Every time we turn on the television there is another show or movie that has some form of superhero in it. We have become addicted to seeing them because the idea of a modern day superhero saving the day appeals to us. We want someone to rescue us, and as a result of that so many superheroes have been born.
The Justice League from the DC universe.
The Avengers and Fantastic Four from Marvel.
There are so many that have been created; yet before the heroes in spandex and masks, there were others.
Heroes from myths and legends, all around the world. Epics and songs dedicated to their deeds, both good and bad. Born descendants of gods, or blessed by beings of great power, they were the basis of why we became so dedicated to keeping the idea of heroes alive.
Heroes like the:
Heroes are those who are looked up to for their courageous acts or their character. They are role models for those that learn about them, learning from their good deeds, as well as their mistakes. Without heroes our culture would be very different than it is today.

You hear that bell ringing? It means that school has started once again, and with it comes the required textbook readings.
I do not have to tell you how many times I have looked at a syllabus and stared at the required reading list just thinking, “Why, oh why, did I take this class.” It’s probably the same, if not similar, for quite a few students out there. Then when it comes down to it and you start reading them, you just start to get tired and find no enjoyment. Don’t get me wrong, there have been some textbooks I have enjoyed reading. However, the majority of them have been very long and dry.
Don’t let this deter you from enjoying reading though. We all know that there are other books that we can read for fun. You just need to know when to read them, while still maintaining that textbook reading schedule. I have found a couple ways in which to do this.
Maintaining Fun Reading:
Reading is meant for a variety of reasons. Whether it be for educational purposes, for informative purposes, or for fun. Overload of schoolwork has been seen to cause many issues for students, and in order for these issues to not happen students need to have a way to decompress. Finding time to read something enjoyable is what I try and do, maybe it can help you as well.
