How is a bio different from an ice-breaker? I'm a workaholic who writes from time to time.
How Do You Drive?
Let's be honest here. Have you driven around without a license? Yes, that includes a spin around the parking lot. Chances are, whoever took you for the first time grabbed the handle on the ceiling and several prayers were said to God about your safety during the first time you put your foot on the gas pedal. If you haven't driven before, don't be scared. It depends on your location and your preparedness before you sit behind the wheel.
Why You Shouldn't Have a Crush
Many people get their first crush in elementary or middle school. You first notice the girl sitting next to you in class. She is dressed really nicely today. Her hair is pinned up with a few strands framing her face. She always helps you with your classwork or homework when you get stuck on a question. In the downtime of class, she shares her book with you and lets you read with her. Over time, she becomes the highlight of your day. Every day you come in, you hope she did too, just so you can see her. The thought puts a smile on your face.
You were on the subway home from work one Friday evening. The day at the office was horrible and you were exhausted. Janet was having a baby, Carl and Eve both got promotions, and Dave got a new car. It seemed everyone was having extremely good luck these days. Good news showered the floor and you were starting to wonder if you could write balloons and party supplies off on your taxes.
What is Grief?
What is grief? Grief is pain and numbness. It’s feeling everything and nothing. Grief is not wanting to believe that death has arrived. Grief is red hot anger, because why is this happening? Grief is the question of what if you had done something differently, would things have ended the same way? Grief is hollow and empty, but sad and painful at the same time. Most importantly, grief is finally realizing that no matter what happened, you did your best with the circumstances you were given.
What Age Should You Start Driving?
I think that there's a lot of pressure around a teen driver. Society wants you to learn to drive the day you turn sixteen. Teens want that freedom. If they can drive, they can go anywhere, and they don't need to wait on their parents to pick them up from the mall or the movie theater. Parents want their kids to drive so they don't have to have that responsibility of picking their kids up. If they can drive, that's one less thing on the parents' shoulders.
Hiding in the Dark
My mom was terrified of the dark. She always had a light on in any room she went into. Night lights were her lifeline. Every room in the house had at least one light, and she would always stay in the path of the brightest ray until someone could turn on the overhead. Hell, even the attic had a few lights in the sockets. I couldn't tell you the last time she was up there, though. She always made Dad go up, armed with a flashlight. He never seemed as scared as she did.
The Glitter Girl
The Glitter Girl was everything her name sounded to be. She was light and beauty. A beacon of hope in a dark world that was always burning. Always crumbling down into a million pieces. She was the girl to put a smile to your face. To remind you that there were things worth living for. The Glitter Girl performed and sang for those desperate enough to hear her calls, like a siren leading a sailor to his doom, but she was the opposite. She led depressed souls, hungry for happiness to the buffet of honored kings and worthy folks. She fed those with her light, never caring if it would impact her brightness. She was selfless and kind. A queen to rule in a previously broken kingdom, ready to fix her world.
The Life of Customer Service
The Coronavirus was the whole reason our county had gone under lockdown in March 2020. Only essential businesses were open. Schools were shut down and everyone who could was working from home. Of course, we weren’t the only ones suffering this. In fact, my state wasn’t even one of the few that first went into lockdown.
“Enjoy Your Meal”
Picture this, it’s a busy Saturday night. You’re at your favorite restaurant with your family. You were on a waitlist for a half hour and the line out the door has only gotten longer. After a little while you’ve just gotten your food. Your server asks if you need anything. You reply with a no. She then says, “enjoy your meal!”
Why is Everyone Against Tik Tok?
Most, if not all millennials or older Gen Z’s have said or thought, “I will never download Tik Tok. That app is for children and I am not a child. It is a rip off of Vine. It’s going to die just like Musically.” At the start of the Tik Tok phase, I was the same way. I said the same thing. I thought it was just a trend that would die out. My little sister who is thirteen was into Musically when it was all the rage, and all I can remember was the same song on repeat as she made her videos in the next room. It’s how she made me hate popular songs—because of one part of the chorus was on a continuous repeat for at least twenty minutes at a time. Tik Tok started out the same exact way in my household and the memories of Musically came rushing back, and that was the very first reason as to why I was against the app.
Don’t Go Back To Your Ex
Don’t go back to your ex. Especially when they come crawling back to you after the fight. No matter how long it was since you’ve talked last. No matter how much they say they’ve changed, they are always going to be the same person they were when you split.
Why Fan-Fiction Isn't That Bad
When I was thirteen years old, I began writing my first fanfiction about a show called Once Upon A Time. I binge-watched it on Netflix and had missed the first half of a certain season. I wanted to get a synopsis of what happened when I stumbled onto a site called Wattpad. That's where I found many stories of the show and the season I missed.
