Umm... Hi. So, I was flipping Umm... Hi. 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 3 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

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

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.

Kissing in his bed, hands locked on his face, how difficult would it be? Phone on the bedside, the password his year of birth and high school jersey number and all she’d have to say was that he was going to spend a few days at her place. His roommates would be disappointed but not surprised. Break your heart, break your heart, that girl’ll break your heart. But none of them would count on this, no one would notice until he didn’t call his father or the unfamiliar smell of human death crept into every reach of the apartment. Keys in his pocket, cutting into her thigh, she could take
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 there 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.

Thoughts on GrowingDriving in the car with my friend, we've been friends for a short time; three years in fact and despite this she had taught me some of life's most valuable lessons. On the way home, there is laughter and talking, more laughing and the unannounced pause to listen to the radio. She turns to me, I highly advised that she didn't since I was in the back seat and her eyes should have been on the road, but still; she turns to me and tells me as plain as day "I'm scared of growing up."Thoughts on Growing16 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

When I first watched Part One (the part about the plague), I was working on my Biology homework one evening. I had had a fairly sheltered childhood up to about my last year-and-a-half of high school, and that was one of the most gruesome things I had ever seen in my life. The images lingered and haunted me in my sleep…
…I stand on a street in my childhood home of Lakeside. MT, with a bunch of zombie people shuffling around. After days of rioting and looting, the streets are a shambles, and the sick, dying people no longer have the energy to riot any longer. As if most of the cops are even alive to fight them anymore. What few are still alive, realizing that they’re screwed anyway, shuffle around with the rest of the dying.

Why does my mind feels so missed,

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

I've heard it said that memories are a form of forgetting. If this is true, what does that mean for my first memory?
Do you know what your first memory is?
I only know mine because I took the time to find it. I started with my birthdays. I remember my third birthday. Mostly, because of the fantastic hats that my Aunt Karen made for everyone. Before that, I remember when my brother was born. I was about 2-1/2. Prior to this, I remember my mom constantly chasing after me ~ trying her best to keep me fully clad. It was a losing battle as I recall ~ I stripped down to my birthday suit every chance I got.

These are the things one finds out when someone dies.
I’m not sure what was more surprising ~ the fact that she was almost 100 and still had the urge or that she was able to operate it on her own. She called my mom almost weekly for help with the remote control.
The thought of anyone going through all of my stuff is mortifying. Why? What do my things really say about me? If a stranger were to go through all of my stuff, would they have the first clue of who I am?
I don’t think so. But, I feel the need to ponder that one a little more before I can say one way or the other.

"Now let us join in a moment of sustained silence."
I bowed my head. That was my church. They didn't call it praying, because not every member believed in prayer. They didn't call it meditation because not every member believed in meditation. So they just called it Sustained Silence.
I liked it that way.
One Sunday, many weeks ago, the Rev led the Sustained Silence with a suggestion, and I continued on with it, every week. It made me feel whole.
I pictured my feet sending roots down into the earth through the floorboards, my toes spreading, lengthening, to taste the rich dirt beneath the building.

I am a profoundly different person than I would be otherwise because of the animals I’ve had in my life. As a child, Molly Brown helped me experience life in a way that I couldn’t have gotten anywhere else.
Molly Brown was the nicest dog I’ve ever met. She was even nice to cats. She was also really nice to my grandmother’s dog, Paco. He nailed her one weekend when my parents were away. Two months later, she had puppies somewhere between The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family.
Paco was also Molly’s grandfather. And, a whore. That dog may have nailed more broads than Warren Beatty. He lived to be almost 20 year

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
