Subject: Re: Calling All Book-Worms:Share Your Fave Books

Forum: Calling All Book-Worms:Share Your Fave Books

I absolutely love the Harry Potter series! Typically I gravitate towards fictional books about other worlds and powers. There are a few non-fiction books I enjoy, but fantasy has always been my favorite. The series I recently finished was a 15 part series (unfinished) and it's about multiple worlds. The series is called Web of Hearts and Souls. My life was consumed by these books and they were constantly on my mind. The idea of magic and other worlds is intriguing to me and allows me to escape my present issues. My life is mundane and monotonous, the idea of there being other worlds out there is nice to imagine.

Hope you have a good day!

Forum: Have you Read/Written Fan-Fiction?
Good afternoon CNET!

We've all fallen in love with a novel or a film at one time or another. Although a book or movie is over it doesn't always mean the story has to end. I've read/written fan fiction through out the years based on movies, novels, and even a band. I have found that fan-fiction is an easy way to write if you're having writer's block because the characters are already set up for you. I enjoy fan fiction because it allows you to share the story that you've conjured in your mind. There have been numerous fan-fictions that I have read that are better than the original as well!

Have you read or written fan-fiction before?

Do you enjoy the idea of fan-fiction?

Are you brave enough to tell us what fan-fiction you have read or written?

Hope you're all having a good day and hope the semester is treating you well!

Subject: Criminal Profiling: Useful or Harmful

Forum: Criminal Profiling: Useful or Harmful
There was an argument/discussion during my lecture today. Criminal profiling is gaining interest from society due to numerous television shows. I'll admit that one of my guilty pleasures is Criminal Minds, although I know that it doesn't resemble reality.

Criminal Profiling is an investigative tool used by law enforcement agencies to identify likely suspects and analyze patterns that may predict future offenses and/or victims.

The question was: Are offender profiles useful for police investigations?

Do you believe that profiling is helpful or harmful during investigations. I have my stance on this subject being a 4th year Criminology student. I'm curious what all of you believe.

Forum: who are you voting for ?
This election has been a mess between the primaries and the candidates. My vote went to Bernie Sanders because he is the one I agree with the most. He seems to care more than the others at bettering America for everybody. I'm also a very liberal college student who likes the ideas that Bernie has on education. Although it is looking like Bernie may lose, I'm hoping he somehow wins.

Subject: Re: Scholarships; Decision making

Forum: Scholarships; Decision making
Hey Abbiey,

I find myself with the same thought and it's lead me to not attempting for scholarships anymore. While I was deciding to study abroad and trying to earn scholarships, I was very disheartened. There were hours spent filling out fifty or more applications and I was only awarded one, it was from CollegeNet for writing. I'm soon returning from my semester abroad and I'm debating whether to try for scholarships again or not. It can be really hard to put time and effort into something you never get a reward from, but I guess that's life. One day it will pay off when we finally do receive a scholarship. It will be worth it. :)
