- Meat Mountain
It was three hours past midnight when the words Meat Mountain gripped me, the fetus of a twisted mind. Bread, lettuce, beef, chicken, beef - all together in a manic crescendo of processed meats. When I was done, I wept. God would not forgive me.
Ze'car RIcky Alejandro
- Two of a Kind
Moving through the brightly lit room, disturbing fluorescent lights beaming down on him. Ricky looked at Alejandro walking next to him, a rifle leaning onto his shoulder, the muzzle pointing towards the air. Alejandro side-eyed him "Don't lose focus again." Ricky nodded, holding onto his pistol. The pair have been walking for hours, unsure how to escape where they are. This dystopian world disturbed them both ever since they woke up here. They know they must stick together to escape if they can.
- Two of a Kind
Cynthia stares up at the bright blue sky, the sun casting a warm glow onto her face. The peaceful atmosphere, a drastic contrast to the sinking feeling in her gut. Ten seconds more is all she had, then it would be back to the basement. She stares at the stopwatch counting down its final few seconds, three, two, one. Josue walks out to Cynthia, grabbing her arm roughly and dragging her back inside his house. Cynthia didn't mind though, whatever he did to her was fine. They were two of a kind.
- The Fall of the Berlin Wall
We arrived in West Berlin! It was as if in a trance. It was so unreal. Maybe I just protected myself from getting too emotional. Old people fell to their knees and cried, thanking God that they could witness this in their lifetime. People hugged us, kissed us, laughed, and cried. Everyone wanted to give you something or do something for you. One young man asked us if it was the first time we were in West Berlin? We answered him, "Yes, for sure!" Then he said, "Come, I will show you the city."
- From "Dandelion Wine"
Hold summer in your hand, pour summer in a glass, a tiny glass of course, the smallest tingling sip for children; change the season in your veins by raising glass to lip and tilting summer in.
I hate having the internal ambition to complete all my work and daily tasks just to have no energy to do so. As time goes on and the day begins to fade into the night, the anxiety starts to build and build and build until suddenly, I am faced with the reality that I have accomplished nothing. Now, I have a tomorrow that seems impossible to conquer, yet I continue procrastinating as if I have nothing better to do.
- To My Sibling - Unstoppable
I hope you never forget that I believe in you. Wholeheartedly, with every fiber of my being, I believe in you and your dreams, and I always will. I'll always be your soundboard, your top supporter, and your cheerleader. You're unstoppable.
- First World Sales
Selling poison as a cure. Drinks that make us thirstier. Food that makes us hungrier. News that makes us dumber. Company that makes us lonelier. Money that makes us poorer. Recreation that makes us work more. With friends like these, who needs enemies.
- the single life
I've been single for 6 years which is crazy to think about. I do enjoy being single, but when my friends who are in serious relationships mention their significant others all the time, I feel lonely. I question why I haven't found anyone yet, but then I realize, I rather people question why I'm still single rather than question why I'm with someone who I settled for. And now I will be single for as long as it takes.

- Can I ask something?
Hey, I have a quick question. How do you make a good quote? I just got into this, and I cannot seem to make a quote that everyone likes. It sucks for me since I have a habit of trying to make the most random things. All I want to do is just make something that everybody can enjoy, so can somebody give me a good answer to the question I just asked?
- Backwards Down the Number Line
Happy, happy, oh my friend. Blow out candles once again. Leave the presents all inside, take my hand and let's take a ride backwards down the number line. You were eight and I was nine. Do you know what happened then? Do you know why we're still friends? Laughing all these many years, we pushed through hardships, tasted tears. Made a promise I can keep still recite it in my sleep. Every time a birthday comes, call your friend and sing a song, or whisper it into their ear. Just don't miss a year.
- From Ambition to Zenith: The Alphabet of Growth and Persistence
Juxtaposing every grand ambition, zealously venture forth with bravery. Quixotically chase dreams; understand patience, knowledge, and wisdom enrich journeys. Quietly persist, overcoming failures, nurturing hopes. Mastering skills takes time. Believe in gradual improvement, facing each day with optimism. Life's quest is not about quick victories but enduring growth and learning from A to Z.
Shannon L. Alder
When you stop living your life based on what others think of you real life begins. At that moment, you will finally see the door of self acceptance opened.
- Sprint for Women's Health
We have a clear goal: to fundamentally change how our nation approaches and funds women's health research. Research on women's health has always been underfunded, many medical studies have focused on men and left women out, many of the medicine dosages, treatments, medical school textbooks, are based on men and their bodies - and that information doesn't always apply to women.
- Confessing your feelings
It's true that confessing your feelings isn't easy to do. You spend every day in complete anguish, as you create the experience in your head over and over. And yet, you still can't confess your feelings. Even when you think the time has come to actually do it, you can't say the words 'I like you'. They get stuck in your throat. Don't you think you should answer someone when they desperately long to express their feelings? If you make the situation unclear, both of you may regret it later.
Call the Midwife
- Delia to Patsy after waiting up for her
While you were out, I was thinking 'I'm gonna unpin her hair, let it fall down to her shoulders, and run my hands through it.' But you've gone so mad with the lacquer, you could pull out every Kirby grip and the beehive wouldn't budge.
- Over the Moon
I'll be your baby. There's nothing better I'd rather do. I'm lost completely. I might as well be over the moon. I'd like it if you tried before you change my mind. Are you going to be here with me? I know you better.
