The Rise Of The Game, 'Among Us'

Why has this game suddenly become so popular?

The free game "Among Us" has been very popular recently. It has been played all over my college campus and it is all I see on my YouTube recommended page and I do not even watch gamers. I was wondering what the hype was all about until I played it. The game came out in 2018 but has now been popularized this past month.

The game is a social game. One can either play with friends or can play with random people. In the game, there is an imposter and crewmates. The imposter goes around killing crewmates and every time someone in the group gets killed, the group has an emergency meeting and has to guess who the Imposter/killer is.

The game is fun because it is not too time-consuming and it holds your attention trying to figure out who the killer is in your group. Also, in the space-themed game, the crewmates have to run into different rooms and complete certain tasks in each room. The goal of the game is to complete all tasks without being murdered by the Imposter. If you are the Imposter, the way to win is to kill all of the crewmates.

In addition, Among Us has been a great way to communicate with friends and others since there are still COVID-19 restrictions. People can chat and problem-slove with a group of people while being socially-distant.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
