Today is my first day out at my new home. I actually arrived on Saturday, but Monday always feels like real beginnings of things. Like we always said “I will get started on that on Monday”. So I’m writing you this letter over my Monday morning coffee (still tastes like world’s best thing) and calling it my first day.
It may come as a surprise how much I’m going with...

Now that I think of it, it all feels quite pathetic.
They weren’t worth half the effort, nor the drama, nor the trauma I received. I’ve never fought with a friend, not in that way.
Rants upon rants of each others problems…
That was all just simply too much for me. I can’t handle it anymore.
Do I look like I care whether or not she has a crush on you?
It wasn’t easy moving to America.
I’m sure many people won’t be able to understand.
My mom had to make the difficult decision. I moved here when I was only five. We were originally planning to come here when I was twelve, but because of the learning environment and air pollution, we decided to move much earlier than expected.
At first, I didn’t understand why. I would whine and cry, begging my p...
The day I heard the news, I didn’t know if I was happy or sad. I was confused. What on earth would possess my parents to live off the grid? They though I would be happy to move, but I had to leave my friends and relatives. The only reason we were moving is because dad got fired. Takayama wasn’t an ideal place to live in my opinion. Sure, I’ve always wanted to go to Japan, but not like this! ...
Five kids, Anna, Fellow, Zack, Sarah, and Wayne, were just ordinary kids until a spaceship drops them five elements of nature, which is Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Space. Now they use their newfound powers to defend their city from dangerous villains....
*I kind of didn’t just write about the first day lol, I got too into it and ran out of time :,)*
This world has gone to crap, I think as I type at my desk. Week after week, it’s the same dam thing. I don’t think I can take anymore. But I wonder, not everywhere can be this bad? Can it? I slowly stand up from my desk, giving my brain a few more moments to debate if I should actually go though with ...
Sunlight. Real, unfiltered sunlight. Was this how it’s supposed to feel like? How had Liz gone for so long without it?
Her fingers ran over the wooden wall, catching on every divot and tracing through each grain. Not a single one of her friends had supported this. Eva had started crying, bawling incoherently about how this was the worst betrayal she’d ever experienced in her entire life. Sandy ha...
I take one last look in my empty apartment before closing the door and locking it for good. I walk down the stairs and turn right so I can go into the front office and drop my key into the slot. All I know is my sister and I cannot stay here anymore because of what I have learned.
I clench and unclench my fits when I think about what I learned about my corporate job and the malicious things my b...
I wake up. Well not really wake up. I yawn and stretch but I don't think I went to bed. After last night, how could I? I was chased out. The people hated me..and just because I was meditating. They thought I was a witch, WHICH i wasn't.
(Sorry this isn't much. I didn't have much time or an idea)...
