    It's strange how you can go to school with someone for four whole years, and never even meet them until 17 days before you go your separate ways and never talk to each other. It's weird how you can meet someone and not even know that they've been in your algebra class since sixth ...

    No. No, why do I hear voices? It's supposed to be silent. Silence is the only way we keep the peace in my house. If there are voices, there is tension. If there is tension, my family is on the verge of breaking. Two years ago, we were normal. We did normal family things, like go to baseball...

    Professional musicians don't make much money. I'm talking classical musicians, not rappers and red carpet celebrities. Why do I play? Because it helps. I could be an athlete. I could make it to the Olympics if I tried hard enough. But I don't want to. I'm not athletically ...

    Stories are like dreams. They're little pockets of fantasies in the midst of reality. That's why I read. I read to embark on a journey into magical lands where animals speak and the trees come alive. I read the Chronicles of Narnia because I wanted to know what it was like to have a magica...

    You know me as the preppy social butterfly, the head cheerleader, the homecoming queen. I have perfect skin, brand name clothes, and I've never walked into a Wal-Mart. But keep at a distance, because if you look too closely, you'll notice I have a chicken pox scar above my right eye. The m...

    I've been here for years, never having moved one bit. Since 1987, I've watched kids graduate and kids get held back. Twice I've even watched the teachers leave only to be replaced by another one who will move on over time. Every year, I listen to the same lesson. I witness the crazy a...

    Superheroes are real. I know, because I am one. I know what you're thinking right now. You're probably thinking that I'm a crazy teenager whose ability to think clearly is jacked up by my hormones. And I bet as soon as I even mentioned the word superhero, a picture of Batman in all hi...

    All throughout my childhood, drawing was my escape from the lonely world that was my reality. I was the smallest kid in my class, always had been.
