Reflections on a Wonderful Week
Everybody likes to say “I had fun.” It means that you have some sort of memories of happiness to hold on to, something to think about when other things go wrong. But “fun,” as it is used, is fleeting. “Fun” departs just as swiftly as it came, and the word can often leave us empty; even when we HAD fun, it usually means we’re not having it now. The heart of...
screamingwithoutlungs: PLEASE put this as your status if you know someone (or are related to someone) who has been eaten by pandas. Pandas are nearly unstoppable, and when hungry, also breathe fire. 71% of people won’t copy this into their status because they have already been eaten by pandas, 28% are hiding in their showers with fire extinguishers awaiting the coming Pandocalypse, and the...
How to Get Someone Fired from the Grocery Store
Coerce him into participating in a cart race. Go up to the manager of the store crying and accuse him of being mean. Lodge a complaint about him every day in a different handwriting. Stand next to him, throw something at his manager, and run away. Throw something at him and yell “Nice catch! Throw it back!” Steal his check in card and check out early every single day. Turn the volume up on...
We all have something that we’re particular about. My father hates spills. A teacher of mine can’t stand it when students use the & symbol. My grandmother used to make us wash our hands every time we even looked a the food she was cooking. I have a four-year-old cousin who has a thing about shoes: everyone’s must be off, or everyone’s must be on. My own pet peeve,...

The Universe Provides Some Perspective...
Put simply, I was tired. Annoyed. Ready to make a decision. I breathed deeply, taking in the cool, purple, starry night air. I brought it in, and it became a part of me… or perhaps, I became a part of it. The world brought me into itself in that moment, and suddenly it struck me that I was very small. The vast expanse of creation lay around me, spread over hundreds of billions of trillions...
Anyone want to guess what this is about?
Here’s a half a poem for your reading pleasure :) A juxtaposition caught my eye A swaying, colorful wonder was Advancing slowly on a gray, Sweltering expanse —- Staged for a battle The gray roared with Its monster warriors Flying Across it

Happiness is a mystery, like religion, and should never be rationalised.– Gilbert Keith Chesterton
How do you know if a friendship is a good one? How can you look at a relationship and know if it’s working? The best measure of a good friendship is whether all parties can look at the relationship and know that it has made them better people. Friends aren’t just there to joke around and have fun with, they’re also there to edify, teach, and inspire. If someone doesn’t...

Why, hello You look lovely today Your dress is perfect for you! And your complexion! Fabulous! Your hair is like silk, And your style impeccable. Compliments stick to me like honey Sticks to my spoon Viscous and sweet I remember them, I have a collection: A little, ornate box Filled with tiny treasures. But once I recieved a special treasure It fell from the sky, a diamond I...

"Davis Gulch" Imitation
The following writing is imitating the language in a certain passage in Jon Krakauer’s “Into the Wild,” from the chapter called Davis Gulch: The apartment in which Jessie lived was damp, desolate, and had the worst view in the city. An air conditioning unit was the prettiest thing to look at outside her one window. The walls were gray, and the apartment seemed perpetually cold....

The Start of a Story... but don't expect the end
The day began innocently enough. Generally, everything was nothing. Nobody worried, nobody fussed. Yet, I knew that today things were different. I knew the silence was anything but the good sign everyone took it for, but I didn’t say much because I had enough barbque chips. Besides, I’ve always been a quiet person. The first time I kept my mouth shut was when Lila came upstairs to my...
Broadly speaking, the short words are the best, and the old words best of all.– Mr. Winston Churchill :)
The Road... More Traveled
Dear God I was terribly lost when the galaxies crossed and the sun went dark—But dear God you’re the only North Star I could follow this far! Oh goodness I love Adam Young. I just think he’s so happy and cute. I never really watch baseball, but I’m starting to think I like it. The rules are simple and the gameplay moves quickly and keeps everyone interested. Another...
