I've been writing for over 5 years now and I'd love for the chance to share my work with others. I specialize with creative writing and short stories.

An Uninvited Guest
“Hello? Is anyone home?” A young woman asks from the other end of the door. She pounds the door with a furious aggression but speaks with such a polite tone. She’s been banging on the door for a while now but refuses to wait until morning to come back.
“Mom, I’m home!” I call out, opening the front door to my house, excitement booming out of my voice. I enter and slam the door with a little too much force, my enthusiasm getting the best of me. “I’ve been looking forward to this dinner all day! Is everything ready, mom!?” I shout, hoping I’m loud enough for my mother to hear me.
How To Search For A Job That Won’t Cause Burn Out
In today’s job market, it’s beyond exhausting trying to find a job in any field. Putting your resume on websites only to receive spam emails about more job opportunities. Applying for a job with a good resume and cover letter, only to hear nothing back or get told the position has been filled already. Searching for a job is already an exhausting process. Because of this, people tend to ignore for the position they’re applying for and will take anything that they can get. It’s important to remember that the job you get can end up exhausting you more than the searching process. Here are some ways to avoid being overwhelmed at your new job.
Your Body Language Will Make Or Break Your Job Interview
Whether it’s in person or on a zoom call, a job interview can be nerve wracking. It’s easy to get caught up in the mindset that your every move is being observed by the hiring manager. Whether it’s one on one or a group interview. Some people think that their every move is being analyzed which causes them to get nervous and act in ways they wouldn’t normally. All the interviewers want to see is that you’re engaged and have genuine interest in the job you’re applying for, and where that begins is with your body language.
“Good morning, Regina. What’re you up to?” “Damn it. Damn it. Damn it!” Regina shrieks, her arms fiddling over something. Sometimes I’m not sure why I even bother with this woman. It’d be a lot easier to do what she says and kill mindlessly, but I’d rather get a good laugh out of her antics. The only problem with that is that her antics aren’t always funny. They’re just sad.
The Living Statue
“Woah… How do you do that with your eyes.” This girl is out of this world. She keeps staring and never blinks. It’s stupid and really weird, but I’ve never seen anything like it. “You’ve got to teach me your secret. Do you drink, like, a ton of water every day, and then your eyes are always moisturized, so you never have to blink?”
A Determined Young Girl
“Where is she? I’ve been waiting out here for hours.” I can’t believe I took two trains and a bus to sit out here. This hallway smells like a rat breast milk… Not that I know what that smells like, but I imagine it being unpleasant.
