    Smoothly, I bring my arm back. I aim, and whack the ball. Hard. I grunt, step back and brace myself for the next blow. The next ball zoooms past me at 100 mph and and I whack it back with my racket. This game is […]

    Scorn. Distaste. Distrust. I used to love her so very much. She used to be a friend. Then she changed. I wish she would smile, or laugh, or tell me something happy. Now I just feel disappointed and maybe a little […]

    What do you know? What can you tell me? Can you correctly format a paper? Can you complete a fill in the blank exam? Can you speak in public? What are the professional best practices? Can you debate? Can you prove […]

    643 Crescent Street
    The first place I ever called home. This is where I meet my brother, my best friends. This is the last time I saw my parents, and where I learned to live and love.
