Is This What It Feels Like? A Collection of Short Stories
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This work often explores the themes of sex, drugs, and death, because I think these things are really, truly interesting in a way that ordinary things like school or sports are not. They push the limits of human experience and potential, they happen on the brink of human knowledge, meaning that something new and exciting can occur as a result. Moments like these can offer great things in the way of self-discovery, and knowing yourself is one of the most important things you can do. I want to reach the pinnacle of experience so that I can stay there and revel in it. There is no way of knowing what this would be like, but it would be crazy to think that it would not be worthwhile.
