    I Think I'll Be Happier For The Trouble

    It's depressing to keep applying to jobs and hearing nothing back. I so badly want to work, to get out of the damn house and do something that means the world to me, but the world isn't letting me, at least not yet. Sometimes I think I should just give up and apply to law school...

    Confusion By: Madyson Lawrence Even

    when he’s gone, I can still feel his arms snake around my waist as mine find his neck to wrap around. He pulls me closer & squeezes. I can feel the ghost of his lips on mine, making it impossible to forget the kiss. I can still feel him here with me. His jacket, so much like...

    I tried to explain to you

    why I write without seeking publication or acknowledgement from the people around me. Why it's not a "hobby". Hobbies are things people do that make them happy, or to fill the spare time we have. Writing doesn't make me happy. It's like using a rib spreader on myself every time...

    I need to laugh, because I'm laughable.

    I search for something that isnt there, with no idea what it is, and no idea why Im looking for it, and then I grow depressed and angry when my search comes up empty. What is going on?

    What is the whole deal with this "you're

    either with us or against us" mentality that some feminists have? It's almost like they don't like people questioning their belief system. It's like there's something sacred about it. I get the sense that if I were to question it, I would easily be labeled a misogynist. It's...

    The thing is about this town is

    They arrived at the club at 11: Ian, Émile, Kevin, and Troy. The music was already loud, and they hadn't even gotten through to the entrance yet. The long line streamed out of the front door, filled with bigger, better looking guys than Ian. He hadn't even wanted to come out in...

    On the first day of my twentieth year of life,

    This is probably going to be very long winded

    and self indulgent, but I feel like I need to write. Today, everything didn't quite "work" in my head. I feel like I'm being pulled in a million different directions, my head spins and time stretches inexorably. I could bash out a million sad poems, or howl at the moon in...

    that I was the type of person who lived their life a little too fast and a little too loose. All my friends were the same way. We loved too quickly and fought too much. In high school, we were the kids hiding beneath the bleachers who drove fast cars, smoked cigarettes, and wore...
