Ah, sweet death. The mysterious, the hauntingly, and the ghastly. There is a certain repulsion and allure when it comes to death. Sometimes it spikes fear, sometimes it conjures curiosity. Yet, one thing is for certain.

There is no way to avoid death. It is the polarity of life, and thus a simple fact we all must face.

What's on the other side? Who's to say and who's to know. Yet one day, we will.

Vulture Culture is a subculture where people are fascinated, collect, and indulge in the commodities of death. These commodities can be skulls, skeletons, taxidermy, and other artifacts of corpses.

Instead of fearing death, The beauty of Vulture Culture Is finding fascinating with the aftermath. The decay, the rancid rotting, and the decomposition all have its certain charm. Well, a charm if you're not afraid of it.

I have a special interest in bones, particularly skulls. I have three I've acquired from various places like art galleries, expos, and yard sales. Whenever I go hiking and exploring, I always keep an eye out for skeletons and skulls. It's one of my hobbies, and it's an acquired taste.

All it took was one painted skull from an art gallery and I was hooked. I don't buy skulls often but I love finding them. I have yet to retrieve one from the wild myself, although I have made that a goal of mine.

How does one get involved with Vulture Culture?

It's different for everyone, but admiring and respecting death is one way to get involved. Remember, it's vital to respect death. Especially if you engage in these practices.

When you acquired the remains of any creature, remember to treat them with respect and kindness. The spirit that may be attached to them will appreciate it. If you can maintain a healthy and beneficial relationship with the spirit of the creatures, you'll have a swell time in Vulture Culture.

Vulture Culture is a splendid hobby and lifestyle. It's not for everyone but it can be rewarding.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
