Anti-Human Trafficking Petition

Hello, Ning!

So normally, I don't ask very much of you, but this is important. I need your help.

To put it succinctly, there are some serious issues with the chocolate industry. Impoverished people, in many cases young children, are exploited and often enslaved for the purpose of profit (off of chocolate-y goodness). 

My sister, who is a brilliant young activist, wrote a petition challenging big chocolate corporations like Hersheys, Nestle (who is making progress but…

Need Book Recommends!

I want to get a lot of reading done this summer, and I'm looking for recommends. I really want to get something that could be considered a "classic," i.e. I want to read so don't want to read anything particularly new a

I like dystopia, science fiction, realistic fiction, and comedy.

Thank you very much!!!!

Any D.I.ers?

Just outta curiosity, Does anyone out there do D.I.? (Destination Imagination, but if I had to tell you that, there's a good chance that you don't do D.I., in which case this post won't mean anything to you) I recently just finished my 4th year (I did scientific this time) and in my opinion, got cheated out of going to Globals twice because we tried the duct tape challenge and got beat by idiots who didn't fulfill the challenge. ANYWAY, I could go on more about that, but I don't really care…

A book im trying to write

Chapter 1

It was fall in the city of New York and in the faraway distance the sound of an ambulance was being herd. Amy looked out the window as she wiped tables in the local diner she worked at. it was getting lighter out that meant that people would start flooding in asking for pancakes, big breakfasts, muffins, and all organic salads since apparently some people enjoyed salad for breakfast. How she would never understand but in the city of New…

Once upon a time there were some common everyday people named Sophia and Edmond who lived in a land known as Darknia. Edmond was a coal miner who mined coal from the local mines since the kingdom needed the strongest men to mine it. Edmond and Sophia lived in a tiny wooden hut that was crumbling to the ground on the side of a mountain in the kingdom and were very miserable just like most of the people in Darknia. At the time the kingdom…

Living life based on "what other people think"

I cleaned my house today before some friends came by and I am now worried that possibly the fumes from my cleaning supply is causing my friends to sniffle. I would have never thought twice about the fact that my friends are sniffling if I had not cleaned the house, but because I have I wonder if the smell bothers them. I check myself... the smell does not bother me at all, in fact I can barely smell it, but that could be because I have adapted to it verses that it isn't strong or…

On Easter, my mom the Easter bunny usually leaves me and my brother a small basket with candy and something small, usually chapstick or a book for me. But this year, SHE GAVE US SINGAMAJIGS!!! I freaked out (for obvious reasons given the audience of this post), and she said "Whoa, I didn't know that you'd be this happy," because she doesn't know about nerdfighteria or anything. Now my brother and I can harmonize, and it is…

Drunk (A poem)

My parents warned me about the drugs in the streets

But never the ones with brown eyes and a heartbeat

My parents told me to stay away from strangers

But never that love was the sole danger

They said I was too young to feel

This wave of emotions, head over heels

My parents warned me about alcohol

But I was drunk with none at all

This is a poem by me- if you'd like to use it or something, please ask.

Any critique would be…

Okay, so the final creative writing assignment was the reverse plot. In this assignment we had to create the story backwards.

G.G. Marquez

Rest in peace, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. 

I have to admit, sir, I have only read one of your books. I read it for school, which, some argue, is another black mark on my record. However, from the moment I began Chronicle of a Death Foretold, I fell in love with every aspect of you as an author. We learned about your activism; you witnessed a revolution that spanned your young-adulthood. We learned about the controversy that was embedded in every word you wrote. We learned…

The People You Meet

The most interesting people are around you. Although you may not see it from the outside, everyone has a story to tell. You just have to ask.

From the most random encounters, I have talked to people with such interesting stories. I’m not talking about my friend who has met One Direction or the one who is going to London. I’m talking about the average stranger that if you just spend five minutes talking to, you come to realize how interesting…

Okay, so you know how, like, when you do novels in class, and stuff, and you, like, have to stop after every chapter? Well, like, we're reading a novel in class, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, and, like, OH MY GOODNESS. So, it's like, REALLY REALLY REALLY good and, like, it's intense, like, yo! And so, we stop after every chapter, and REALLY, BRO! Like, it's SOOO GOOD. Y'all should read it. But, anyway. So we can't take the books home, and stuff, 'cause…

Third creative writing assignment: People Watching

Xen Stories

For the third creative writing assignment we had to go out into the world and watch people conversate from afar...stalking, pretty much. At which we have to come up with a possible dialogue from their mood and body language. I have to say, and with great relief that I am not the best stalker. I stalked and stalked, but time after time I kept getting spotted. It’s more exhausting than I realized. So to the two girls standing in front of the library on that windy… Continue

pronouns and abouts

1. I use the "they/them/theirs" pronouns. if you're gonna be a butt and say stuff like "THAT'S NOT GRAMATICALLY INCORRECT" i will frown at you and also you will be invalidating my identity and thats not Awesome.

2. i have emetophobia--the fear of vomiting. seeing images of, reading discussions about, or noticing mentions or other passing references to vomit makes me very anxious. please be aware of this and just be careful. thank you!
