    When something tragic happens to you, your life instantly becomes divided into the “Before” and “After” in relation to the incident. I read that somewhere in a book and as I’m trudging along the highway, headed towards Vancouver, which I’ll pass through to reach Seattle eventually, and...

    I swing the baseball bat, taking a step back as the grey-ish green zombie falls to my feet, groaning. I step down on its head, shrieking as I do. My sneaker comes back covered in black and green goop and I let out another cry, rubbing it down on the grass. I take off across the field, the metal ba...

    The morning of my last day of summer found me anxious and nauseated at the thought of going back to the red-brown public school I attended two blocks from my house, but the afternoon found me in much worse condition. I had spent a fair share of my day with my two closest friends in an attempt to ...

    A little girl selects a worn, thick book from her bookshelf. She places it in her mother’s lap and her mother smiles, the corners of her eyes crinkling, “This one again?” The book is large, with many pages and stories, full of typed words and extravagant watercolor illustrations of enchanted ...

    Eli was standing with his back to the sign-in table in track pants and a red shirt that hung on him. He was clutching a plastic bag with a banana and clear water bottle in it, the white shirt they hand out to new students around his neck like a towel. He nervously scratched his chin, eyebrows turned...

    “So, how did you two meet?” She asks, glancing at me from behind her long black bangs. My attention snaps towards her, “Excuse me?” “How did you two meet for the first time?” The two of us are sitting on a brown leather couch, the leather pulled tight along the frame. Orange and red ...

    When I was eleven, I thought my body was disgusting. It hadn’t always been that way, when I was ten years old I was alright with what my body was. I ate if I was hungry and I ran if I wanted to run, but if I didn’t want to run, I didn’t, and it was alright. Then, I began to watch televi...

    It was both beautiful and horrific to be alive. My LC was now flashing wildly, feeling compelled to shut down now that time had run out, but also knowing that it’s job was unfinished. The same feeling you get when you do something quickly and without much work, and then go back to it, feeling guil...

    I met Molly when I was in tenth grade. What was she to me exactly? A best friend? A girlfriend? A beautiful companion? Or simply a safety blanket? She was everything, all those things. If I had to describe Molly in one word, it would be sunshine. Sunshine, like when you step out into the afternoon ...

    If you want to know me, don’t ask me questions about myself. Don’t smile expectantly and ask me about my grades, my friends and my favorite color. Those things aren’t me. Those things don’t make me who I am. Don’t ask my parents about me, they know me just about as well as you do...

    Honestly, It's getting difficult. When I see you sometimes, I wonder if my heart might drop to my soles, Or if it'll just pop out of my chest All together. It's getting to be torture, Talking to you. Because I want so badly for you to be perfect, But, at the end of the day t...

    When I took my job at the Hilton Cafe, I had been planning on it being a three month thing. Four months, at most. Yet, two years later, Damon and I still sat behind the counter, debating if ice cream preference had anything to do with character. Yeah, I know. “Seriously, it says a lot,” Damon ...

    You know that one guy at your public school that is really artistic – like most of you are – but, you’re pretty sure he’s on drugs? And he never comes to school, and then, one summer he loses about half his body weight and doesn’t come back? That’s me. That’s why I was in the backsea...

    I turned the golden faucet, fingers slipped against the cool metal. Immediately, water began to soundlessly pour into my tiled shower cubicle. I hugged myself, goose bumps spearing my skin. I hadn’t used the shower since this morning, so, the water would take some time to get warm again. When ste...

    For me and all my friends, Valentine’s Day usually brings images of chocolates and flowers and packages tied with red silk ribbons to mind. We usually went stag to clubs and restaurants and movie theatres, in a group, wearing our red-bottomed stilettos, bringing a cloud of Chanel 5 perfume whereve...

    Our love is crazy hard to understand invisible we don’t talk when we stand side by side we talk when you say, “Hey, listen to this song” and you cross the room and turn on the speaker and watch my face as the sound fills our empty, content silence. Our love is difficult awkward t...

    If love was an animal, it would be the most coveted, and the hardest to catch it would wander in fields with flowers, slip through the branches of apple trees, and curl up in whicker baskets placed in alleyways and it would be naive, oh so naive! and it would elude those who want it for its han...

    This album has been getting a lot of trash, especially when compared to Marianas Trench’s second and third albums, so, here I am, official defender and promoter of Fix Me, Marianas Trench’s very first album! I dare anyone who thinks they don’t like this album to hear me out and read to the end...

    “Come on, Jason! I’m going to die soon!” I protest, poking him in the bicep. “Seriously? You’re going to use that card on me? I’ve been hearing it for a month, and honestly, it’s starting to get to me,” Jason says, and his eyes flit to my wrist for a second, where my LC is flashing....

    It’s not something I can touch with only hands alone, A strength found intertwined within notes, black dots, lined page, It’s a strength that can be felt by the heart when the notes begin to play Soft and slow, quick paced with pop, it doesn’t matter which you favor, all that matters, wh...

    I tapped my pencil against the desk, my head rested in my free palm. I swallowed, and circled “C” on the scan tron card, since I hadn’t used it in a while. It had been all A's and D's. The loud-speaker crackled to life above my head, and I placed the pencil down and stretched as a ...

    My society sees me as wild and crazy The government sees me as another person to pay for The school system sees me as a kid to not forget to leave behind The principal sees me as a trouble-maker The teacher sees me as a long-shot The coach sees me as number two My classmates see me as the rum...

    It was the kind of secret you really wanted to know. So bad. The type of secret that sits in your mind, nagging at you, keeping you up at night. A really, really juicy secret that could make or break someone. It was also the kind of secret you didn’t want to know, but, only after you found out w...

    My fingers clasp the iron rungs attached to the giant cedar pole, heart pounding so loud it echoes in my ears. I let out a deep breath, which shakes my entire body. I’m climbing higher, and higher not thinking about where my foot will land, or how exactly to grip the iron beside my palms. ...

    Walking down the street, I look like a normal teenage girl. Normal. What a weird expression. We always use it, but, what does it actually signify? If everyone’s different, then, what’s normal? Is there really something we all have? Something that bands us together, separates us from animals? I d...
