The Survivor's Stone
I remember it so clearly. It was the 12th hour of the 12th day of the 12th month of the year. The year 2112. The sun stood still as the earth it shone upon crumbled to its bare bones. Buildings, art, writings, animals, people; all gone within a blink of an eye. Somehow, I survived.

Jerk @ Nite: The Spice You Need in Your Life
When it comes to trying new foods, you wouldn’t call me the most open-minded. I’m weird about textures, smells, and question almost everything put in front of me on a plate.

“As I sat there, phone shaking in hand, I knew this was it. I was finally going to meet my match. My last first date.” I’ve achieved success in almost every area of my life.
