    The meal tasted like styrofoam, but, nevertheless, he complimented her on it. He knew that she knew that he thought it tasted terrible, but she thanked anyway, the whole while knowing that they would never be; not now.

    I can’t grasp the severity of the situation. I can’t tell whether it’s just an mediocre feeling or if it actually carries some weight. But I can’t just ask her… Can I?

  • Ben S. commented on the post, strength 8 years, 2 months ago

    He had to build his strength up. There was no other option. If he wanted even the slightest chance with this girl, he had to become stronger. He needed to become more straightforward, more bold, more obvious; but not too blunt.

  • Ben S. commented on the post, plans 8 years, 2 months ago

    I browse through facebook and see all the things my friends do together. Specifically, one, special friend. And I wish I could be part of her plans. It makes me jealous to see her happy with others even if she is happy with me too. Sometimes I think if deleting my facebook, but then I […]

  • Ben S. commented on the post, ego 8 years, 2 months ago

    Do you ever have the feeling like you’re fucking everything up? I have that right now, but I try to continue through. I try to suck in my ego and think that it doesn’t matter if I am fucking everything up. No one’s keeping a score. At least no one who matters. And I’m probably […]

    When you truly love to do something, you don’t need an audience. You don’t need people telling you how good you are at it. You don’t need fuel from the masses. You just want to do it.

    It is a cheep move. The board is going to remove the choral program. My happiness has been momentarily shattered. I will move on but not with out a fight. My ‘cheap’ letter will have to suffice.

  • Ben S. commented on the post, controller 8 years, 4 months ago

    Parents– the ultimate controllers. Or so their children like to think. They like to think that their parents are just control freaks, but it is with time and experience that they realize that they do it out of love.

    These thoughts run through my head. These thoughts of suicide; ever present, ever lingering, creeping through my mind, infesting all everything. But sill I prevail, persevering to the end.

  • Ben S. commented on the post, lean 8 years, 4 months ago

    Always lean, always ‘sexy’. That’s what the magazines, the commercials, the shows, the movies, the posters, the music, the public always portray. The false connection between leanness and sexiness.

  • Ben S. commented on the post, reader 8 years, 7 months ago

    The author spends his time writing a labyrinth of words and plots, proclaiming how tiresome it is, never considering the confusion the reader undergoes as he looks over the work.

  • Ben S. commented on the post, bear 8 years, 8 months ago

    After procrastinating for a week, I gave in and studied for the test. It is such a bear to learn all these ideas and concepts that teachers say will be important for life, but really just get me through highschool and into college where I will learn a completely new set of ideas and concepts […]

    The sunlight streamed into the garden; illuminating the boy and girl sitting together, talking about nothing in particular, enjoying the sheer please of their company like rays from a sun.

    Chattering all around me; unceasing noise, growing louder and louder, then fading, as I focus..focus..focus.

    Either left behind or
    Forever lost, we
    Thank and acknowledge them.

    The word grown seems so important these days. The grown man, the grown idea, the grown finance. But is youth all so bad?
