    My life is like a movie. Not a Disney movie, or even a Lifetime movie. No. It’s more along the lines of “Rachel Getting Married,” “American History X,” or even “Blue Valentine.” If you have not seen these movies, rent them, but space them out over a few days, or you’ll drown yourself...

    One aspect of human nature, that I have come to notice, is that we all exist in our tiny separate worlds. My first realization of this came as I was cashiering at work. I stood there at my register, scanning food mindlessly, when I glanced at my elderly bagger. She was methodically bagging the food ...

    “So do you have any ideas on what you want it to look like?” an innocent question, yet my hairdresser had no idea of its magnitude. I was preparing to enter senior year without the slightest idea of how I wanted my hair styled. In the past, every time I entered the salon before a new grade, I kn...

    From as far back in my memory as 6 or 7 years old, I’ve had a strange fascination with what death was going to be like. Today, a decade later, and I still can’t quite place why I was so interested with death and dying at such a young age. At that age I don’t believe I shared these thoughts wit...

    Ive wanted to cry over you. I didn’t stop crying over you, over what happened, for so long. I blamed myself for being so blind, and sobbed until my body gave way to sleep…countless nights. But no more… My tears have dried. The sorrow has been replaced with rage. All I feel is rage, confusio...

    I glance up from my desk, catch your eyes for a moment; drop my own. Im captivated. Eyes. You have such beautiful eyes. They’re blue, but not cold and distant; warm and inviting. So large, big and beautiful. We never speak; or rarely so. But your eyes speak for you, They speak volumes about a li...

    Sadness. It can creep up on you suddenly, without warning, or take the form of long and developed grief. Its that hollow feeling deep in the pit of your stomach, the one that makes your heart turn cold, and brings tears to your eyes. It’s the crippling feeling that you can’t shake once it hits y...

    As the girl tried her best to gracefully climb back into her car, she had a momentary lapse of mind and admired her wonderful date in the side view mirror. His blond wavy hair and blue eyes shined back at her, and catching her eye, he smiled. This simple display of affection caused her to miss a ste...

    How many times will I think about you? How many times does the thought of you, even slightly, set off the guilt and sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach? The most random things will bring about your face in my mind: eye color, the lingering scent of smoke, a cement wall reminds me of what we...

    Two words. Two small words sit at the back of my mind. Everytime I think of you, these words pound in my head, they reverberate to the point of forcing me to say them aloud. Im sorry. Such a commonly used phrase that it can seem menial and insincere at times. I say im sorry various times during my d...

    “Look at the stars, look how they shine for you, and everything you do, yea they were all yellow” These opening lines to Coldplay’s ballad, “Yellow” used to make very little sense to me…yet currently they bring me near to tears every time I listen to the song. It has slowly become of th...

    Pot, weed, bud, grass, etc. All names for one illegal substance, its official name being marijuana, as it is grown from a marijuana plant. But with all these names, hasn’t it become easy to confuse what marijuana really is? Or take it for something it is not. As the debate rages on whether to lega...
