• Kayla commented on the post, swatches 4 years, 10 months ago

    I stared at the paint swatches, trying to pick a colour, even a group of colours. Anything that would make this process easier. But I had no idea. Did it matter if I chose blue, yellow, green, pink? Would he care? Would he be around long enough to form an opinion? Really I was doing this for me, try as I might to convince anyone otherwise. This…[Read more]

  • Kayla commented on the post, deranged 5 years, 1 month ago

    The man came toward me, eyes flashing, twitching his head wildly. I could tell he wasn’t quite right. Besides the obvious anger, it was more than that. Something had snapped inside and I could not for the life of me figure out what I had done to make this happen. He was completely deranged, yelling and screaming as he lurched closer.

  • Kayla commented on the post, occupancy 5 years, 1 month ago

    Occupancy. What is there to say about occupancy? Right now there is much room to be occupied in my brain. Wait. That makes me sound stupid. Scratch that. I need to empty my brain and make room for new things. The things currently there are no longer of any interest to me. Out you go. Space available. Vacant, for interesting things only.

  • Kayla commented on the post, seated 5 years, 1 month ago

    He was seated at a low table, out of the way. The lights were dim, the music muted, the scents floating around him subtle. Everything about the room was entirely uninteresting. Except her. As she walked past he smelled cinnamon, and something citrusy. It invigorated him and made him wonder. What was someone as spicy as her doing in a place as…[Read more]

  • Kayla commented on the post, tank 5 years, 6 months ago

    Tank. What is there to say about tank? It rhymes with Hank. The name of my very favourite character on Breaking Bad. Which rhymes with sad. Which is what I am now that it’s over. What am I supposed to watch now? That show ate up my days off for like a month. I binge watched. Now what? Tanks.

  • Kayla commented on the post, railway 5 years, 7 months ago

    He stared at the train tracks, not really sure what he was seeing. Nothing was registering at that moment, nothing made sense. What was he supposed to do here? There was no guidance, no instruction. He was expected to just know. How was that fair? Frustrated, he began to walk down the length of the tracks, not entirely sure where he was going, but…[Read more]

  • Kayla commented on the post, manners 6 years, 8 months ago

    My little cousins Shylo and Maria have exceptional manners. My auntie Kim may not have a lot but she’s done her best with what she does have, and if nothing else, those girls will grow up knowing their pleases and […]

  • Kayla commented on the post, minute 6 years, 10 months ago

    I don’t even know what to write. What am I supposed to write about a minute, in a minute? What am I supposed to say? I can’t even. My brain has no words. I feel flustered. I think my boyfriend is no longer interested in me.

  • Kayla commented on the post, mayor 6 years, 10 months ago

    I really have no idea who the mayor of my city is. I feel like his name starts with an M but I’m not sure. I lied. There it is. Milobar. A little while ago there was a bake sale where people made their best […]

  • Kayla commented on the post, architecture 6 years, 10 months ago

    I won’t lie to you. I don’t know what I’m supposed to write about the word ‘architecture’. Architecture has always kind of fascinated me. The way buildings go up, how they are built. How they are designed, […]

  • Kayla commented on the post, combination 7 years, 5 months ago

    There is no better combination than sex and cupcakes. Sometimes you just need to have one or the other, but why not just have both? Cupcakes with sprinkles, cupcakes without sprinkles. Any cupcakes will do. As for the sex? Why does it even matter?

  • Kayla commented on the post, artistry 7 years, 5 months ago

    She looked the blank page before her and knew in her heart that she could create something beautiful. She had no idea what but she knew it was there. Thinking, and thinking, and suddenly creating, and suddenly something was beautiful. She wanted to destroy something beautiful.

  • Kayla commented on the post, automatic 7 years, 5 months ago

    This is what happens when you are told to just go with it. Go with it, the flow, just keep going. Don’t think, what are you doing? Is that thinking I hear? Stop that. No thinking. Fingers, mind of their own, no, that’s thinking. No minds, no minds, no minds. Thinking is bad, thinking is […]

  • Kayla commented on the post, awakening 7 years, 5 months ago

    What I do in the morning, unfortunately. Something I would rather avoid. I suppose awakening can mean many things. Mostly it is becoming aware of something, yes? I became aware at around 3.30 pm today.

  • Kayla commented on the post, relate 7 years, 6 months ago

    Hard to do sometimes. Easier than one would like in others. The things that I would like to relate to I often can’t, and sometimes it’s easier to relate to the bad things that are happening to other people. Bad, of course, being a relative term. What we perceive as bad is usually not even […]

  • Kayla commented on the post, castle 7 years, 6 months ago

    What I wouldn’t give to live in something akin to such a majestic building. A modern castle, if you will. A mansion. Something large and modern, something fun, with bubble chairs or chairs that look like giant Tic Tacs. One day, when I’m fabulously wealthy, that is what I will have.

  • Kayla commented on the post, dull 7 years, 6 months ago

    It never occurred to me before how mediocre my life was. Of course I sometimes had moments when I wondered what I was doing with my life, and the answer was always nothing. I wasn’t really stuck. Or maybe I was. I was in a rut. How was I going to get out?

  • Kayla commented on the post, warfare 7 years, 6 months ago

    Don’t start nothin’ won’t be nothin’.

    These are the words that every nation should live by. Every nation should live by all the words in Men in Black. Thank you, Will Smith.

  • Kayla commented on the post, advice 7 years, 6 months ago

    I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Don’t see him? Don’t talk to him? How was this supposed to be any better than what was happening right now? If anything, it would be worse. Much, much worse. Despite what my head and everyone else was saying, I decided to listen to my heart.
