• Jodi commented on the post, female 6 years, 3 months ago

    I am a female. Sometimes I wonder what that means. Everyone over the course of history has had a different idea. But what if it means absolutely nothing at all? What if “male” and “female” are just pointless titles, something holding us back from just being us?

  • Jodi commented on the post, officers 6 years, 3 months ago

    The police officers tackled her to the ground, firmly holding her arms behind her back and slapping a pair of cold, silver handcuffs on her wrists. Why had she run? Lying there on the ground, it was hard to imagine why they called this justice.

    Nowadays, things get broadcasted across the world in an instant. You could say 10 words here in America and someone in China or Japan or Indonesia or Afghanistan can know in a minute flat.

  • Jodi commented on the post, July 6 years, 4 months ago

    The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. Lemonade, watermelon, short-shorts, fireworks, the smell of cigarette smoke and carnival rides. The memories are strong and sweet in my mind. I love the 4th of July.

  • Jodi commented on the post, roof 6 years, 4 months ago

    I remember the first night we spent together all alone since we had become “official.” I thought it was the sweetest, most wonderful thing that you didn’t want to just sit inside, even though it was chilly out. So we set off on an adventure. We snuck up onto your rooftop and even with my immense fear of heights, I remember thinking how incredible…[Read more]

  • Jodi commented on the post, object 6 years, 4 months ago

    So many men see girls as an object. Something they can play with, toss around, use, and break. I suppose I shouldn’t be unfair though, girls can be just as bad to boys. We all just need to reevaluate how we treat others.

  • Jodi commented on the post, rise 6 years, 4 months ago

    She rose up from the Earth, as though she had the beautiful, billowing wings of an angel. That was how he made her feel, like an angel. He called her that too, his angel. Angels are a funny thing. We as humans can’t imagine the concept of pure beauty, innocence, and perfection, so we turn it into something tangible in our minds, like an angel.

  • Jodi commented on the post, past 6 years, 4 months ago

    My past is a mess. Sometimes, I like to hide it. Sometimes, I like to hide from it. Both are useless. What’s there is there and I shouldn’t be ashamed or afraid or sad because of it. It’s made me who I am today. Yes, I have regrets. Few, but still some. But even those make me who I am.

  • Jodi commented on the post, support 8 years, 3 months ago

    My friends support me through everything. Ok, that’s a lie. My REAL friends support me through everything. They don’t judge. They don’t use harsh words. They don’t hurt me. Yet somehow they still manage to give me their honest input on the situation and help me through it. That takes real talent and real love.

  • Jodi commented on the post, respectable 8 years, 3 months ago

    I want to grow up to be someone who is considered respectable. I want to be trustworthy and dependable and just be someone who is known as a person you can lean on and who is always there for you. That, to me, is a respectable person.

  • Jodi commented on the post, perfectly 8 years, 3 months ago

    I wonder if anyone’s ever really done something PERFECTLY… We use that word so lightly… It means so much more though. Completely flawless. Unspoiled. And with no history of ever being wrong. Perfect.

  • Jodi commented on the post, wishing 8 years, 3 months ago

    I kept wishing for the same thing over and over every night on the biggest, brightest wishing star, hoping one day it might finally come true.
    It didn’t.

  • Jodi commented on the post, mythology 8 years, 3 months ago

    We learned about mythology in 7th grade and again in 9th. But each time we were taught about it, I kept wondering if there are some people out there who still believe in Greek gods and all that?…

  • Jodi commented on the post, paperclips 8 years, 3 months ago

    I like making paperclip jewelry. It’s so fun, especially if it’s the colorful paperclips. Those are really cheap-ish, though, and they bend too easily.

  • Jodi commented on the post, optimism 8 years, 4 months ago

    Everyone always says I’m an optimistic person… I don’t know how true that is though. Only the people who know me best can see how insecure I can be at times. That means a lot to me.

  • Jodi commented on the post, typewriter 8 years, 4 months ago

    When I was younger, I used to go to church sales all the time with my mom. Once, I found an old typewriter for sale. I thought it was such a treasure. I had always wanted one. Why didn’t I just want something normal, like a doll or some crayons?

  • Jodi commented on the post, stick 8 years, 4 months ago

    Her spine was as straight as a stick as she shot up in her chair. The clap of thunder outside had awakened. She had fallen asleep on her math textbook. Again.

  • Jodi commented on the post, wrong 8 years, 4 months ago

    It’s all wrong. This cannot be happening. I swear, just yesterday my life was perfect. Just a couple hours ago I didn’t have any problems. Well I guess there has to be a cutoff point somewhere… What am I going to do?

  • Jodi commented on the post, possibility 8 years, 4 months ago

    Today, there are not a lot of possibilities for things to do. There’s several feet of snow on the ground and I feel trapped inside my over-heated house. I want to go out and make snow angels and snowmen like I did when I was little.

  • Jodi commented on the post, believer 8 years, 4 months ago

    I am a believer in the Lord almighty. That’s the first thing that came into my head when I read this.
    “I’m a believer, I couldn’t leave her if I tried!” That’s the second.
    I believe in love at first sight. That’s the third.
