    Three seemingly innocuous (harmless) letters, yet they hold so much meaning in the average high school student’s life. They influence the students’ social life, study habits, and psychological status. Fine, I’m exaggerating. But in all honesty, high school students are perpetually nagged to...

    I’ve found it. It took sixteen years, but I’ve finally found the thing that everyone dreams of, wishes of, hopes of. It’s not in the big houses, The ones with basketball courts, movie theatres, and bowling alleys Ten-car garages with a waterfront view. It’s not in the malls that...

    I am from a little hospital in the middle of nowhere. Placed in the babies' ward, with all the other newborns of the day. 8 pounds, 2 ounces, with a head took up a large percentage of the weight. Born from my mother's pride and my father's joy, I am from God's creative (an...

    I’m going to ask you a few questions. Is it okay if I ask you a few questions? Are you sure? You’re positive? I don’t want there to be some kind of tacit argument where I’m trying to get the full answer out of you when you only give me one word. Oh. So you will give me a full answer?...

    I huff impatiently as I glance at my phone. The screen lights up the home page, with no new messages. I grit my teeth, shut off the phone, and stare impassively out the window at the ever changing scene. My mom glances at me. "You've been staring at that thing for quite some time now. ...

    I sat there, staring at my cursor blinking on the blank page. I glanced at the time in my lower right-hand corner, then at the cursor again. Cursor, time, cursor, time, cursor, time… It never ended. I groaned. My deadline was the next day and I was still staring at a blank cursor. Why is this ...

    The black and white keys spread out before me. The sheet music of choice is in my sight. I place my hands before I hit a key. Notes, dancing, up and down, then left and right. I glance at the music, ready to play. The judge’s eyes set on my every move. So now, I silently begin to...

    I tentatively step into the small black box theater ­located on campus. I check my watch. Yup, right on time. There are the seniors boys who are about as scary as they sound, and the poised junior girls checking their phones or talking to the director's assistant. I quietly take an empty se...

    I puff out short little breaths, delighted by the little clouds that appeared in front of my face. At the age of six, with Mommy and Daddy in the cabin behind me, and snow falling all around, there was little more that I could ask for. Suddenly, I felt something cold and hard hit my face. I turn...

    "Do you want to go?" he asks his girlfriend. She looks up into his hazel eyes, the ones that are staring at her with such love and passion, she finds herself speechless for a moment. She know that her answer will determine his answer. Whether or not to go to the bonfire on the beach...

    "Excuse me?" I scream above the murmuring of the crowd, piercing the cold air. The boy in front of me turns around and smirks, his neon green beanie nearly blinding my eyes. "Sorry, honey. But patience is a virtue. Try it out sometime." "Yeah? So are manners, but app...

    The salty wind swirled around the girl's head, picking up her fair, golden curls. The gray bonnet on her head would have flown away, had she not been gripping it tight. The white-laced glove she wore was clinging tightly to her small, box luggage, which she had been able to stuff with the littl...

    The girl twists the golden ring, around and around her finger. The bitter cold bites her in the face, and she pulls her weathered scarf tighter. Wind blows, and never stops blowing; the trees sway to its every command and the withered green grass under her bends down in its mercy. She’s huddle...

    I sit, blankly staring at the muddy gray food in front of me, as indistinct voices fill the air around me. Am I supposed to know what this is? Do they expect me to consume this? The unidentified food object bubbles, as if to answer my question. I'm going to take that as a no, I silently resol...

    I sit there on the uncomfortable bench, staring at the black and white keys for so long that my eyes start to dry out and the keys turn into a blur in front of me. Had it not been for the chiming of the clock behind me, I would’ve never realized how long I had been sitting in front of my grand pia...
