    I’ve always wondered why people love to be so miserable. You are. You love it. Whether you know it or not. You do. Now you can pout and get angry, burst at the seams and puff off some steam, but you’ll still be miserable. And you’ll still wonder why and so will I. Simply look around. Everyt...

    I hate hospitals. Always have. I hate the stale air that meets you when the tinted sliding glass door slowly, painfully pulls open. I hate how the desk clerk attempts a wavering smile in my direction as I walk by. She has a greeting like “Have nice day!” or “Enjoy your visit!” on the tip...

    Dear Mrs. Papanaguous, As you can see here, I have completed the entire project you assigned last month over what my, your student’s, summer has been like.

    I am Berlin. Berlin in the mid-1900s. Split in two, battling thoughts from both sides. The wall stopping all creative flow, A cancer in midst of beauty. Organized chaos of the mind Paralyzed and waiting for rescue....
