    The thing most people don’t seem to understand about dying is that it isn’t so bad. I was never very popular in school because I didn’t like other people. They made me uncomfortable, and I would much rather be alone. No one seemed to understand this, and they thought it was weird. That I was ...

    When my brother was seven, he was convinced he could fly. To test this theory, he jumped off the top of the stairs. Numerous failed attempts later, he and everyone around him were very much satisfied with the notion the he, in fact, could not fly. I, however, was not convinced. For that split secon...

    It’s funny how people try to simplify something that is simply not simple. Love isn’t some cookie-cutter scene you see on TV. It doesn’t have a black and white definition; there is no checklist you can complete and magically obtain that perfect fairytale love that turns little girls’ brains ...

    No one likes standardized tests. Anyone that says otherwise is just kidding themselves. You bubble in question after question, until you get to the essay. We’re all expecting it coming into the test, but nevertheless, we hope. We hope that this year the prompt won’t completely and totally suck. ...

    I never fully understood the way people’s minds worked. When I was eight and tried to say something completely serious, everyone around me laughed and congratulated my mom on having such a cute little girl.

    Passing notes in secret. I gave you my heart and you chose to keep it. Forever. Ends now? Forgetting. I wish. The freshly mowed grass and your shiny white teeth. I wish I could forget How I feel when you look at me. Amazing and true And yet a liar call. I guess all love has it'...

    How far away are you? You seem to be drifting. Don't tell me I'm crazy, because I won't listen. I'm not stubborn, I'm smart, I'm not clingy, I care, You're not true, You betray, I thought I loved you, Now, I just don't care....
