    “Hannah, get down here! It’s time for dinner!” my mom shouted at me through the two floors that separated us. “Be down in a minute!” I shouted back. I paused my show and exited out of Netflix, but before I turned off my computer, I glanced at the time, which was only 5:32. My mom had to b...

    “We’re going to be doing some writing today!” my English teacher exclaimed, standing up just as the last student entered the classroom and shut the door. To his obvious dismay, he was met with a sea of groans. I have to say, I didn't participate in them. No matter what I might say, I love...

    When I sat down to write this memoir, I had to stop and think for a minute. Of course I have encountered bullying, everyone has. I just didn’t know what to write. I had heard my friends' horror stories and I am involved indirectly in them, but I don’t want to speak for my friends. There was...

    The greatest lesson in life Is about time And how it should never be wasted Or used up doing things That you don’t find worth your while For one day You may wake up And find that your time’s up And you haven’t lived a life you are proud of For everyone’s time is limited To a certai...

    There’s nothing better than a slice of chocolate cake, Not even a creamy raspberry shake. Or even a lemon ice pop, Or some pie with blueberries on top. Not even a delicious s’more, With chocolate and marshmallows galore. Nothing is better than a slice of chocolate cake, Except maybe two s...

    One day, not too long ago, on Halloween, a group of friends were discussing their night together between classes. “I hate school on Halloween. It’s always so boring and stupid. In some classes we have a party which isn’t so bad though it can get pretty boring, others we do stupid stuff lik...

    Tears drip from my eyes and fall down my cheeks onto my lap. In the dead silence of the room, my crying was surprisingly loud and ostentatious. Everyone was avoiding me, their eyes purposely looking in another direction, as if to pretend I wasn’t there. They didn’t want to think about what this ...

    Evenness is an illusion that humans have deluded themselves into believing exists for centuries ever since the first caveman figured out how to get power and keep it and still believe he was being fair How can we when outside there is a beggar on the street scrounging for coins an...

    What is beauty But a mask Covering your true self Deteriorating over time What is beauty But random chance A one-in-a-million combination of genes That happen to form a perfect face What is beauty But our whimsical interpretation Of impossible perfection As likely to change as a quiv...

    Nothing is completely, utterly Wholly, absolutely, fully, entirely 100% Not perfection or imperfection Not beauty or ugliness Not love or hate Peace or war Lies or truthfulness Not even bacterial disinfectant Everything is faceted Broken into parts Nothing is completely one thing Nothin...

    Everyone changes, grows, develops In the end, a few years from now You won’t recognize yourself Over time, we become different people Because of the places we go The people we meet The experiences we have The decisions we make This is our past And it is constantly growing Building along ...

    No one Steps into love, confident as a prowling lion Tiptoes into it, careful as a mouse Glides into it, gracefully as a dolphin Creeps into it, slowly as a snail We all fall into it Flat on our faces Limbs flailing trying to get their balance In the new world they’ve entered Everyone tu...

    As I sat in the hospital bed - so covered in bandages, gauze, and plaster that I was practically immobilized - I thought. As I thought, I waited. Waited for people to come, waited for people to leave. Waited to heal, waited to get out of this God-damned hospital bed with its metal rails, weird antis...
