Anesthesia & Arbitrary Apparations

I woke to the sound of mechanical beeping. Lights flashed around me as I opened my eyes. Slowly coming into focus, I noted the beige wall and glanced upwards toward the ceiling. I was laying in a hospital bed.

New Year, Moderately Different Me.

My mind races through old photographs, desolate sunsets, Asia to Amsterdam, and bodies shaking with every touch, and kiss, a new jolt to life brought forward by a mind-altering epiphany.

Art of the French “Whine”.

The crisp bite of autumn causes commuters to throw on a topcoat and head out into the chilly city. I find that fall has a very distinct smell; I’m not quite sure if it is the fact that everything is dying, but the season seems to fill me with life.   The click of my…

One by one, two by two.

During a late night conversation, I was asked what my happiest moment was. I paused and began to search through the archives of my memory. Moments had passed, and I, unfortunately, could not answer. The question, while seemingly so simple, proved to be something that was quite the task. When asked, I could immediately recall…

What would Sun Tzu think of Gossip Girl?

The warm breeze of the creek cascades over the night. As Americano and I take a long walk down to the Old Mill, we stop to take in the crisp air that feeds our thirst for summer.  While walking late at night, one usually begins discussing current events…and by current events I am not referring…

Pulling out my phone, I begin to seek entertainment through my Instagram feed. As the app begins to load, I am overwhelmed with  the amount of selfies that…

Perils of the iPhone.

One of my biggest annoyances is the reliance that we all have on technology. It has been a good 14 hours since I lost my phone, and I am in living hell. It is not until you do not have the electronic so easily acceptable that you begin to realize your dependence on them. Technological…

Bring another change.

When making plans for ones own life, we often tend to overlook the facts. We all like to dream up imaginative and grandiose scenarios in which we hope to achieve, but we often overlook the fact that barriers might be in our way. Barriers can be seen as not just certain instances inhibiting us from…

It takes courage to be courageous.

Coming to the end of a chapter within your life can be a difficult barrier to cross. When we cross and break through this blockade, we move on to our freedom. As humans we have seen: the blacks moving forward to freedom and liberation, we have seen the gays move towards equality, and we have…
