  In kindergarten, my classmate Hugh brought green muffins to share on St. Patrick’s Day. At first they didn’t look so good, but after I tried them I was amazed by how delicious they were. I asked my mom to get the recipe so that we could try to recreate them. We modified the recipe to make them a little healthier.

     Named after my favorite drink, we decided to name them Green Machine Muffins. For my ninth birthday, I shared them with my friends and they were a hit so we made them again for my 10th birthday instead of cake.
If you’re looking for a healthy snack, I hope you will try them and enjoy them as much as I do.

               In today’s fast-paced world, shortcuts are irresist- ibly enticing. In some ways, it reminds me of the CliffsNotes era, amplified to an unprecedented de- gree. While CliffsNotes summaries provided a gold mine of time-saving insights, they couldn’t replace the deeper understanding that comes from immersing oneself in read- ing the actual book.
come mainstream, we face a paradox: bullet points and summaries don’t foster deeper learning. TLDR, or “Too Long, Didn’t Read,” embodies our checklist mindset, but isn’t it through immersion in a book, rather than bullet points, where transformation lies? As we navigate this accelerated modern landscape, let’s pause, dive deep and uncover the “aha” moments that come from genuinely cherishing each word of literature.
