  • Rim To Olivia's Small Lips
    2,728 words
    This isn't happening. Things like this don't happen to people like me. I sit on a log and look up at the canopy of trees hovering over me. I glance around, seeing only other confused faces glance at me. It's quiet. The loudest quiet I've ever heard. My head floods with thought and I close my eyes, pushing back frantic images. I inhale my surroundings, trying desperately to make sense of the silent riot occurring all around me. My attention is drawn to a noise. My eyes wander, searching for the s...

    So here I am, microphone in hand, about to sing in front of 100 million people across the world. The cameras are on me, and the audience has fallen silent in anticipation. How did this happen, you ask? How did I, Katie Skipton - an ordinary 15-year-old schoolgirl just a couple of days ago - get to become an overnight superstar? Glad you asked. Sit back, relax, and let me tell you about the craziest day of my life... Three days ago, my class and I were looking forward to a field trip that we were...

  • Night Wes
    1,651 words
    A Deadly Realization I walked into school around 8: 25, rolling out of bed only a half hour before. I wiped the rain from my face, I hate when it rains. As usual, I strolled in with a casual walk, like I was the coolest, because I could come in late every morning since I had no first period class. The first person I saw as I walked through the cafeteria toward the staircase was Louise. Usually an outgoing and crazy person, she strikes many as being on crack. She calmly and quietly said "hey", wi...

  • Just Breath

    JANUARY 1, 2007 It's like I'm dead. But I'm not, I guess I'm just dead to my surroundings or everyone is just trying to make me feel that way. I walk through the crowed halls at my school, no one turns a head, no one smiles, it's like I'm walking through a bunch of ghosts, or am I really the ghost? There are so many questions that I try to answer in the back of my head while I'm taking these steps to home room. Everyone usually feels sorry for the person who has no friends or is considered a fre...
  • Looks On The Kids Faces
    704 words
    These kids are blessed with terrific good looks -- tall and straight, with big dark eyes, glossy hair and a movie staffs smile-but this wasn't what was turning heads. Some of these kids were not actually walking towards the line at McDonalds; some were running and somehow skipping at the same time. And the kids were looking and smiling directly at everyone they passed with their fingers in their ears, their elbows flared out on either side. And, further baffling the bourgeoisie, they occasionall...
  • W And Jo
    2,166 words
    The first time I did acid isn't the most interesting time I've done it, nor the most scary, but I guess it would still be a good read. I was going down to a friend's house on a Friday night. Everyone was planning to get majorly fucked up. A lot of people were going to do Dramamine. I read an FAQ on it, and it said if you have Asthma you shouldn't do Dramamine... and to be honest, Dramamine seemed pretty nightmarish after reading a few trip reports. So I decided to stick with something I knew: RO...
  • Look For A Way
    648 words
    There is a saying that life is a struggle: a struggle for survival, a struggle for success, and a struggle for simple human happiness. If one considers this statement to be correct, every problem or obstacle one faces puts him / her in front of a choice of who to be and how to react to life's hardships. Having faced this choice one chooses either to be victorious or to be a helpless prey of life's privations and hindrances. One chooses to take full accountability for his / her deeds even when th...
  • Particularly Fatty Looking Piece Of Meat
    674 words
    Kurt Baldwin English 101 As I Shopped With the growl of hunger in my stomach, I decided to go to the grocery store to shop for food. I arrived at a busy scene of people trying desperately to get their food, and get out as soon as possible. What caught my attention first was the piercing noise of a little sandy haired boy running out of the store as quickly as his chubby little legs could take him. Screaming at the top of his lungs, he cried and passed me by. His tired looking mother was running ...
  • Painting On The Upper Left
    999 words
    When one thinks of a portrait, perhaps one of the many paintings that flash by is that of Leonardo da Vinci: the Mona Lisa. But in fact, portraits do not have just one style. The subject does not have to be seated facing a certain way so that the artist can take advantage of the "curving" effect. It can be of a man, a woman, a god, or a child, religious or secular, idealized, or abstract. In Portrait of a Man and a Woman at a Casement, Fra Filippo Lippi portrays a man and his wife somewhat facin...
  • Asian Cultures For Example
    484 words
    Nonverbal communication, what we do not say, can cause as many problems as what we do say in everyday life. We are often quite aware of the effects of our words because we can see the expression or hear the response. The effects of what is not said may be much more restrained, but they are critical to our success or failure in an organization. You may have observed many Asians, whether they are relatively new immigrants or well-assimilated Asian Americans, still display many of the delicate nonv...
  • Moma Mae Back
    963 words
    When Mrs. Cad dell assigned this assignment I didn't know what to write about. Famous authors would call this "writer's block" but I just call it clueless. I didn't have any idea about what I was going to write about, I mean it is just about a life experience that has happened to me. I still couldn't think of anything to write about. I could not think of anything to write about, so I did what I usually do when I need help, which is... pray. I know most people call their friends or ask their pare...

    1. "I stared at it in the swinging lights of the subway car, and in the faces and bodies of the people, and in my own face, trapped in the darkness that roared outside" (80) 2. "All they really knew were two darknesses, the darkness of their lives, which was now closing in on them, and the darkness of the movies, which had blinded them to that other darkness, and in which they now, vindictively, dreamed, at once more together than they were at any other time, and more alone" (80). 3.

  • Jared Higgin

    "Man looks on the outward appearance but God looks on the heart. ' ~1 Samuel 16: 7 On the inside, Jared Higgin was just a regular kid. He liked to hang out, play video games, and see movies. But on the outside, he wasn't so normal. He had been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at age seven and a year later had been confined to a wheelchair. At the time of diagnosis, the doctors told him he had only a year or so to live. That had been two and a half years ago. But he had told the doctors that he ...
