    This is the third time I have seen him

    since working at Chuck E. Cheese in my Senior year of High School. It has been 10 years since and all three times I miss out on expressing that I want to get to know him on a closer level. But the truth is, the third time was not the charm for me. We go through life so afraid of...

    Though I've fallen, I'll not give up.

    When I was in the 11th grade, I went to a boarding school. That year my dad sent me a Christian rock album. It was the only Christian music I had, dad knew I was into rock then, so he asked if I wanted him to send it, I'm not sure why I said sure but I did. I had no intention to...

    I Never Noticed..sadly.

    Okay, this is a cliche in many ways. I had a best friend all throughout middle school and elementary school. He was always there for me, always my shoulder to lean on and always my right hand. We knew each other so well to. Sometimes, we wouldn't even have to talk and we'd know...

    When I Was In Junior High School......

     Her name was Emily.   She was tall with pretty black hair, eyes that looked at you and made your hear spin, and a smile that made you feel as if you want to love her. I was in 7th grade when I first met her.  I was new to the school and the boy that was in...

    ...said every man I'd never been with

    once they discovered my naked body on the Internet. To preemptively answer the inevitable question, NO.

    Missed My Chance With The Type Of Guy Who Doesnt Come Around Often

      Heres the story: **names are fake** I went out with my friends for one of my friend's, Amy's, birthday. And I was in sort of a bad mood because I couldn't go camping with them for spring break. So, I wasn't expecting anything good to happen that night but i kept my...

    I Always Miss Out.

    I am always the last person to "get the memo" (I have joined that group here on EP).  I always hear about things after they happen.  Like, my dad saying, "I took the babies to the city festival.  We rode the light rail and had a great time!"...
