GA Day (Day 9)

Who gets to determine when the old ends and the new begins? It’s not on the calendar, it’s not a birthday, it’s not a new year, it’s an event —big or small, something that changes us, ideally it gives us hope, a new way of living and looking at the world, letting go of old habits, old memories. What's important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning, but it's also important to remember amid all the crap are a few things really worth holding on to. –Meredith Grey

Pages Of Our Lives

Our lives are merely stories. You are the main character of yours and somewhere along the way, you meet other characters, some who become crucial to your tale and some who are there as fillers when your next chapter is being written. You might mistake some of the fillers as a lead, but then they disappear and it's onto the next one. Finally, your story reaches a peak, a peak where you find a character that is here to stay. Here to stay to make your story into a saga. You don't need to go looking for them though, they'll find their way to you. 

But as we all know, story's can have a lot of different endings depending on the writer's decision. Maybe it could have been a sad one, a happy one, or maybe it could have been something else entirely. You are born with a clean slate. Each and everyone of us has the ability to run with it and make it into something spectacular. We write our pages, those pages turn into chapters, and before you know it, you'd have reached t…

List #8 (Levels Of Friendship)

Hey hey hey!! What's up people of the internet!? So just to clarify something, this is not a universal chart to friendship. Everyone has different levels and these are just mine. I was watching JustTom's videos on YouTube (Go check him out! Click here to watch this awesomesauce person!) and this idea stuck me that everyone has levels of friendships and so here we are. Leggo.

Numero uno: The Chin Jut
So this is the stage where you don't really talk other than saying hello once in a while or maybe even good morning if you've had your morning coffee. You don't know anything about that person other than their name and that they're probably not a serial killer. The usual way (or should I say non verbal way) of greeting this person is with a chin jut that practically says 'sup'.

Numero dos: Can I Borrow Your Notes?
The second stage is a bit more friendly, or rather, useful. You and this person briefly know each other just enough to say that they won't steal y…

A Short Story

An old man was sitting on the bench. It was late evening and he kept wondering what he could have done differently in his life. He was in his early seventies with no children, his wife dead and his career in the dumps. 

In his golden days he was a private investigator. He had been hired to build a case against a drug smuggler. It was in his hands to throw the case wide open and that was exactly what he did. He collected evidence and the smuggler's trial went just as he had planned. What he didn't think about were the consequences.

After coming home from the trial, he had found his wife's body with a note tied to her wrist. He remembered reading it like it was yesterday. It said, "Payback is what we do. You took our King so we killed your Queen." He snapped back to the present when he heard an owl hoot loudly. 

He got up and headed to his apartment. He had tears rolling down his cheek but he knew if he could do it all over again, he would still end up here. He was a …
