    we sit in class one desk closer than before
    aware of his breathing and mine
    so much i sometimes stop just so we’re off sync
    i cant look at him but i feel it
    the tension between us that is sometimes punctuated by
    a shared laugh at something the teacher said a few seconds later than
    everyone else.
    and this is stupid it’s like
    not even a…[Read more]

  • Liz commented on the post, presented 6 years, 10 months ago

    presented.
    every day to the world
    as if we’re meat
    be sexy
    but not too sexy

  • Liz commented on the post, broadcast 6 years, 10 months ago

    why doesn’t this happen
    i mean it’s not like it has to be
    broadcast everywhere
    like Facebook
    and twitter messages that appear from people you dont care about
    but i think it’s time for something to happen and
    it just isn’t.
    make a move already please

  • Liz commented on the post, both 6 years, 10 months ago

    both of us wanted to speak
    wanted to make contact with
    another life form who may or may not end up being just like we thought
    someone who we could fall for maybe

  • Liz commented on the post, object 6 years, 10 months ago

    he was the object of my desire
    the person i thought might break the spell
    of going so long without a boyfriend
    it was such a possibility that both he
    and i threw away
    like a broken object

  • Liz commented on the post, cook 6 years, 10 months ago

    why do i just do this all the time.
    when meeting some guy.
    cook up some plan for us
    jane austen had it right when she talked about a lady’s imagination but
    seriously this is annoying
    at best

  • Liz commented on the post, rise 6 years, 10 months ago

    rise and shine the day is here and you’ve got to just get up and face it.
    don’t think about how much you don’t want to go to your 8 am.
    don’t think about how you don’t have that cute guy in your class anymore like you did last semester.
    don’t think about the fact that you feel like wearing sweats again.

    just eat some food and drink some coffee.

  • Liz commented on the post, under 6 years, 10 months ago

    underneath it all what are we really. i mean really. when we peel back the makeup layers of foundation and concealer and mascara and take off the labels that define us, we’re more alike.

  • Liz commented on the post, local 6 years, 10 months ago

    being a local is supposed to give you some credibility but i just feel like i want to be a newcomer somewhere no not somewhere a lot of places i want to see the floating lanterns and the ocean again and where i was born in cali

  • Liz commented on the post, soon 6 years, 10 months ago

    oh soon it’ll happen i’m sure
    when the nights get long and the homework gets longer and your brain just keeps wanting to stop it all and just breathe
    and sometimes im just tired of waiting for soon
    i mean we’re a society of instant gratification so why cant i have it now

  • Liz commented on the post, soon 6 years, 10 months ago

    soon we’ll be there in Thailand helping people. i actually can’t wait right now just because school is kind of seeming pointless right now okay bye

  • Liz commented on the post, square 6 years, 10 months ago

    don’t be a square. did you know that a 3D square is a cube? my five-year-old cousin knew that and I was pretty amazed, to be honest. I mean, if they can learn stuff like that in Kindergarten, I’m pretty sure I can write this research paper, right…

  • Liz commented on the post, satisfy 6 years, 11 months ago

    satisfy the thing inside you.
    the thing that’s gaping in your core, your belly.
    the thing that cries more more more but is never satisfied with its current life.
    satisfy your life
    your dreams
    your ambitions
    go and do.

  • Liz commented on the post, thought 6 years, 11 months ago

    the thought that might change the world.
    the thought that everyone else is just like us and not like us at all and it’s all good.
    the thought that life is weird and bodies are weird.

  • Liz commented on the post, measured 6 years, 11 months ago

    measure flour and eggs and sugar and make something
    um yeah it’s like this right now because sometimes to keep getting better you have to keep going even if you don’t know what you’re doing..

  • Liz commented on the post, arts 6 years, 11 months ago

    the arts are what keep us alive when we’re
    sinking
    beneath whatever life throws at us
    we can dive into our music or drawing and just
    be something.
    concentrate on something other than life for no good reason.

  • Liz commented on the post, somebody 6 years, 11 months ago

    don’t we all want that? to be the somebody that somebody thinks is somebody? to be the person we’ve wanted to be our whole lives, modeled on other somebodies we think we should be modeled on? sometimes that somebody just isn’t worth it.

  • Liz commented on the post, draw 6 years, 11 months ago

    it kind of sucks when
    the lights come back on and
    you wake up after a two hour nap dreaming about being kidnapped and
    you’re back to reality and
    you still have to finish physics homework which you have no idea how to do.
    and everything seems pointless at the time when just yesterday your life was great.
    who cares about the angsty high…[Read more]

  • Liz commented on the post, draw 6 years, 11 months ago

    we watch helplessly as she draws names written on the popsicle sticks from the metal can and wonder what our classroom job will be this week. no say in anything, we just hope we won’t have lunch duty because we all hate wiping tables and sweeping.

  • Liz commented on the post, spent 6 years, 11 months ago

    we’ve spent so much time and money and invested in things and people who don’t appreciate it.
    while they spend the same amount on people who don’t appreciate it.
    who don’t.
    we all try.
