My Writings

Here is a small collection of some of my writings that I have saved from over the past few years. Many are in the rough draft form, but a few are final copies. You are free to use these for your own research, and if you have any comments on any of them I would love to hear from you. More will be added as I format more old ones and write new ones!

The Hacker Paradigm - My senior project for a high school English course. The objective was to write a paper and do a presentation that shows an objective approach to a topic. I chose Hacking / Computer Security.

Open Source Software - Another paper I wrote with a technical focus, but this was for a college course. The topic is the benefits of open source software.

The Role Of The Sea In The Awakening - A paper I wrote for a college literature course that discusses the role of the sea in Kate Chopin's The Awakening.
