    I remember in kindergarten when boys were the devil’s spawn. During playtime you dared me to eat a handful of crayons, and I turned up my tiny little five-year-old nose at you. “Darers go first,” I said to you, and even as a kindergartener you had an ego the size of China, so you did. I came w...

    After reading “How to Paint Your Room” in the June issue, I was inspired to paint my room. I made a trip to the hardware store, collected a paint fan deck (a fancy term for those paper color samples), and started pulling my bookshelf away from the wall. After a few dozen novels had found the...

    “Battle Royale” is not for the faint of heart. It is brutal, unforgiving, and merciless. It will swallow you whole and spit you back up again only when you’re already half-digested. It will do frightening things to your heart rate and it will make you want to throw up your lunch while inside t...

    Do you remember the quiet girl that sat by you in Spanish class last year? You thought she was cute and you stuttered when you asked her for her number (en español, of course). She stuttered too when she gave it to you. She won’t be the same anymore. She’ll have a new haircut, a new wardrob...

    It was ironic that with the city around him in burning up in flames, her hand was, for once, cold. Her fingers were so childlike, so delicate that it seemed like they would break at any moment. They were weaved through his own callused knuckles and cracked nails, and if he didn’t know better, ...

    Let’s pretend to watch a meteor shower on midsummer’s eve just to remind you to remember to breathe and that it's okay to believe when you’re here with me When you listen close to the tolling of the bells you’ll hear it tells a lonely story If one day -- tomorrow, let’s ...

    A black-and-white short film with no dialogue, John Kahr’s “Paperman” reminds us that seven minutes is enough to tell an articulate story of love and possibility. Inspired by the split-second connections between strangers, it follows the story of the chance meeting between George and Meg, brou...

    where your lovers are still the trembling trees who still remember shared candy kisses where my laughter, you say, sounds like the sneeze of my cat, who found your fish delicious and the walls still smell like your splattered old tees where everything was painted in wishes where your strobe ...

    Seriously, it’s just chemistry. Under my breath, I’m reciting the twenty-seven bones in the human hand as I do my best to ignore the twenty-seven bones of his hand that are getting dangerously close to the twenty-seven bones of mine. Quickly, I retract it from his reach and inconspicuously w...

    For the past two weeks, other participants of the Net Survival Contest and I have been shut up in bare hotel rooms. Our daily link to the real world has been a computer that is hooked up to the Internet. We have relied on it, not only for food, bed sheets and other daily necessities, but also to set...

    It’s been an incredibly long time since I spent my money on an entire album rather than individual tracks on iTunes. It’s also been an incredibly long time since I last felt so emotionally connected to a soundtrack as I did to the music of the recently popular movie, “The Fault In Our Stars”...

    Going into the first summer of my high school career, I’m in the same boat as many people my age. I don’t know where I’ll be in five years, or even what I’m passionate about. The school I attend is the highest-ranked public school in the city, and every day I am surrounded by ambitious, ...

    The sickly moon implodes tonight as it shines on you and I and our fists, two twisted into only one. Unbroken tides crash, burn tonight against legs, intertwined, of you and I and my secret untold is the only one. You are broken glass tonight and you wonder why only you and I, ...
