    I had this one friend back in.

    ... Tenth grade or eleventh grade. We knew each other for years, since 5th grade I reckon. I'll admit I was an *** hole to her. She was too nice to be honest. And almost taller than me.... So around eleventh grade, we got weirdly close. We were together in one class and she'd...

    Leaving the past behind can be

    so difficult especially when memories lose their negative aspects & therefore the memory we have left is far more glorified than the real experience! I find myself dwelling on past relationships & analysing 'what went wrong' but when I recall the memories of said relationships...

    I spent time looking through old photos

    especially of my Dad, who would have been 78 years old this week. I miss his laughter. I cried more than I can ever remember crying in a long time. This holiday season feels different because I'm more in touch with my feelings. Bitter sweet.

    19th Birthday Today

    My 19th birthday is today. My parents and grandmother came up to the college yesterday to spend some time with me and give me my presents. I got a game, a hat that didn't fit, a pink shirt which I love, and some amazing elastic plastic - that goopy stuff that comes in squeeze...

    Music Triggers It

    I like being nostalgic. It beings me back to the time I'm missing. Pictures, dreams, books, scents, and random reminders of the past make me nostalgic, most most of all, music gives me the almost indescribable feel of nostalgia. If a song comes on that I used to listen to, I just...

    I miss the days when all I cared about was

    having fun. All that mattered was how I was going to keep from getting bored all day. Every day was a new adventure with all new things to enjoy and explore. Back when school was easy for me, and I had the energy to do work. I always thought about what my friends and I would do...

    I don’t know what’s wrong with me, suddenly in the middle of a busy day, with no apparently reason, I felt a strange feeling sweep over me, and somehow my eyes filled with tears and my heart felt as though it were breaking. For what?  Why?  It can't...

    I'm in the fifth grade and my older brother comes home and shows me a book that he had taken out of the school library.  Battered and smelling of moth balls, the book almost fell to pieces in my hand.  Practically every page was dog-eared and it exuded the musty smell...

    Life Isn't Cool Anymore

    A few weeks ago, I made a commitment to live in the present, and focus on building a good social life for myself. Two days ago, I went to a friend's 21st where I didn't know anybody; being an introvert, this scared me, and I resorted to alcohol to get by. I got heinously drunk...

    As I walked down a foreign street last week, a smell filled my nose that instantly evoked memories in me. As I looked up, I soon realised it was a small tree, one which I hadn't smelt in a while. It was the same kind of tree that used to line the streets of my home. I wanted to...
