    March 6, 2010 Creeping, stalking relentless optimism. There is an aesthetic wind scheduled, ordained to fly away. With it will it take this new current of joy that has parted clouds, appeased lions, melted doubt, and shown me a fierce and bold purity of the mind and soul? May I be not...

    I said NO to all of your stupid ideas but that's gone Now that the world is backwards, I guess it's ON This is nothing I planned and I don't understand How thrashing lives is what you call fun. Oh, it takes one. It takes one. One sick mind. You're the one I find, Having no inhibitions – I...

    I was on assignment for my Teaching Professions Academy class. One-hundred-twenty observation hours— although they could be spent helping or observing; I prefer helping even when I'm assigned to work with an age group I have no intention of teaching. Third grade just wasn't my “thing....

    James sat on stage with his typical half-grimace, always waiting to bellow a line of loud sarcasm, with his hands folded in his lap, part of an assembly of seven. The lights dimmed and the room hushed. The purpose: poke fun at James with stories that weren't entirely fabricated. Three speakers ...

    Christmas Day. Hundreds of millions celebrate, tens of millions have the day off, millions head to one of the few places open and collectively spend billions. Hint: It's not Chinese food joints or drug-stores I'm speaking of. It's the cinema. I'm one of thousands of employees who...

    “Ok,” I began to ask, “which is more: eight or nine?” “Nine,” George lulled, bored. “Good, and what kind of problem is this?” “Uhm. . .Subtraction?” “So if eight is on top what do we need to do?” “Add?” Third-grade is not where I wanted to be. It could b...

    I stand asleep and staring at my feet: Two soles so lost and may ne'er tarry-- Where dreams and premonition meet And to where does a restless mind carry? Talent wasted on frivolity Dwindling hope like spider-webs so spin Gambling future, a mere uncertainty. The soul's a wretch who h...

    The heat rained down on Jim Goodman. His curly dark hair lay close to his head damp and sticky.

    Forgotten are the kids who don't drink, haven't had sex much less made a baby, don't smoke, chew or party. They're static, predictable and disdainfully unrealistic. “Good kids” are dull. When young delinquents are questioned about the cause of their actions “I got bored,” is often a response...

    My younger brother, Eric, can be one of the most domineering, angry, unrelenting and crazy backseat drivers there is-- even while riding shot gun. Around six months ago, he was criticizing everything I did. I'm 17, and only had my license for about a year at the time and I admit I'm a flawed driver....
