Just Like WineI ran as fast as I could up my driveway when I returned home from school. I hadn't had the best of days, to say the least. It was raining at the time, and I wanted to get inside as soon as possible.Just Like Wine2 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
It wasn't until I reached my doorstep that I asked myself, What am I doing?
I don't know how the idea came into my head. I don't know why I carried it out. Regardless, I threw on shorts and a t-shirt and sprinted to my back door. I didn't cast the umbrella in the corner even a glance as I stood at the clear glass separating me from the outside world. Water was cascading like a waterfall down from my gutter and it was raining normally beyond that
Two am.Two am is not a time for lovers, I know this now. Two am is for the lonely. Two am is when the car starts on the third try, when the turning of the engine sounds like a tear in the universe. It is when the road opens up in front of you, bowlegged and bare, and you turn off your headlights to let the night air bleed in.Two am.2 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Two am is for jumping the fence and smoking cigarettes on swing sets from your childhood while somewhere in the distance the lost lights of airplanes blink at you, on and off.
Two am is when the traffic lights switch over to flashing amber beams and the memory of your ex-lover's curves burn themselves into your fingertips, in

As I gaze at this photo, I realize how strange it must look to some people, a waist high blue tub, papers lined on the edge, and two men holding a dripping wet child. It was my baptism, I was 10 years old. A year prior I had asked Jesus into my heart and this baptism was the moment when I became a “born-again,” Christian. I was raised in the evangelical protestant Christian Church of the Nazarene, a denomination that came out of the Holiness movement of 19th century America. This denomination believes strongly in “believer’s baptism,” meaning you are baptized after you have accepted Jesus’ salvation
Confined EnvironmentMy bedroom is very similar to an insane asylum room, it is exactly 2 metres wide and two metres long.Confined Environment2 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
From the floor to the ceiling it is just under 3 metres, I am only able to fit a bed, wardrobe and shelves into my room, though luckily there is just enough space to fit a PC monitor and cables down the side of my bed.
The shelves are filled with Xbox games, DVD's and a 2 framed photographs; one photograph has been autographed by my favourite comedian, Lee Evans, and the other photograph is a of a my granddad playing at Arsenal Stadium in 1955, the game was Islington V Brighton, which is funny since Brighton now are by far the better team out of the 2, but that must have been a proud moment for my granddad, playing for his home town.
I forgot to mention that the shelves also have CD's on them, mostly music people wouldn't listen too. Except for maybe a few exceptions. The of CD's off the top of my head are mostly all Bob Dylan, though some do stand out, like the Ste

I’m graduating so, I wanted to look back at my life.
Some things may be vague, if not extremely vague. That’s because certain things are better left untold.
Reason I’m doing this? I think people don’t understand how much I’ve changed through the years. How much different I was seven years ago. The Nikki I am today is striking compared to the old Nikki. The new people in my life don’t know it either. So why not tell? Plus I’m graduating. It’s nice to look back and remember this stuff. And honestly, I just feel like writing it. I don’t do this often.

My cat's sad story - Please read and helpOnce upon a time there was a rainy summer day. Near to the Danube, like every summer, me and my family were in our little summer house. Every year there are tons of stray cats searching for food and places where somebody finally give them love. Almost black or grey cats. But on that day, on that sad stromy day a little desperated white kitten came to our garden. My mother realised the little thing. My mom's friend was also there and he said he just had painted some cats from black to white. My parents laughed and they brought me the little pet. I was watching TV. By the way I was 11.

So, I was flipping through old things on my computer from middle school, and I came across a memoir about my Grandpa I wrote when I was in Grade seven, and after reading it started to cry. Then, I wanted to find my mark for this. I looked around and ended up finding it. It was 104%, which really isn't possible. But it was out of 25, and my teacher gave me a extra mark. My LA teacher at the time even submitted it to the yearbook! It got in, too!Umm... Hi. So, I was flipping 20 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

Why do Summers start in June?
Why do Winters come too soon?
Why do flowers come in May?
Why does Spring go away?
Why do people fall in love?
Why do we love if love will die?
Tell me: Why do I love you?
Why do the rivers flow to the sea?
If rivers flow; Why can't your love go through me,
Why does my mind feels so missed,
To be in love,
To feel your love,
Why don't I feel complete?
BleakI thought I’d already experienced the darkest, bleakest time of my life – Christmas 2012. I was coming home from work and bursting into tears. I couldn’t cope with the smallest amount of stress or pressure. I felt like I was falling to pieces and so, turning to my doctor, I was signed off work 2 weeks before the Christmas holidays.Bleak2 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
It took a long time to recover. Christmas was bleak, I spent most of my time in bed as sleep was my only escape from the pain of the depression, and held little joy or interest for me. I went through all the motions and did the usual things but inside I just felt hollow and empty. I didn’t

Down the Rabbit HoleDown the Rabbit Hole3 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I went down the rabbit hole a long long time ago. In fact, I am writing you from there now.
I remember the first time I read Alice in Wonderland. I remember being aware that a grown-up wrote it. And from this, I surmised that it was possible to always have a wild imagination. It wasn’t something I had to give-up when I grew-up.
This was HUGE. Even at that young age, I knew how important my imagination was.
It was everything.
It still is.
My imagination has been my truest friend and my most constant source of joy in this life.
I felt like Alice as a child. Actually, even now as an adult, I still feel a little like her. I do find th

It was a rather ordinary day when it hit me, mid-step and without warning. I'm not quite sure what sparked the memory. There must have been some environmental trigger that evoked my subconscious, allowing me one of those rare insights into the depths of memory, opening my mind to delve into matters of the past that were so far gone, I wasn't aware that I had forgotten them. It caused world to stop turning for a moment and the colors around me to blur together like a van Gogh. The air in my lungs was in a strange state if equilibrium, neither moving in nor flooding out, but I found myself too shocked to want for oxygen. My foo
