  • Poolside Appetites

  • Life Light

    In high school I was average. Average grades. Average hair. Average everything. I wasn’t popular, or the weirdo—and for the record—I wasn’t the slut either. My upbringing wasn’t one that would appear on Oprah. I came from ...

  • When Nobody Is Looking

    That girl. The one in the cashmere sweater, and reading glasses. That blond carrying her English textbook and staring at the grass as she walks. The soft-spoken scholar; the awkward outcast. That girl is me, but not really. On the bus, she sits alone. ...

  • Emmyful is back.

    Today was stressful. I mean, all Mondays are bad, but today it seemed as though everyone in my small Catholic high school felt the need to be incredibly obnoxious and loud. High school is not the place for reserved introverts, like myself. However, if ...

  • Don't Bet What You Don't Believe

    Shay poses in her rip curled endless summer dress and smiles at me, as I meet up with her on my way to the party. She’s always been a fashion diva, but her charm and sincerity covers it up pretty well. “That junior seems to have really been...

  • Christmas of '78

    Foreigner’s Double Vision was playing on the turntable. I didn’t know the words. The record belonged to my younger, way cooler, sister. She went to see The Scorpions and Boston in arenas and I was a theatre nerd. I knew the words that linke...

  • Highschool Reunion - From An Angry Old Biddy's POV

  • Highschool Reunion - From A Happy Old Biddy's POV

    I love highschool reunions. Always have, always will. I spent weeks having a tux tailored, and I was even on the point of getting a wig to cover my bald patch. Of course, I bought a limo, for this occasion. I sighed with content, for the hall was bette...

  • What I Wish Would Happen (Part I)

    As I sit at the computer, typing away on the smooth black buttons on the keyboard, I hear a slight tapping on the door. It creaks open a little. I stop typing. “…Yes?” I have no idea who it is. “Rose?” My sister sometimes ...

  • What I Wish Would Happen (Part II: Jane Explains)

    Is this a dream? Did I fall asleep? I can’t help but wonder as she hangs up her jacket on the back of my door. “So,” I say, breaking the silence. “Why are you here? How are you?” I silently kick myself for sounding so awkw...

  • 16.5 [Coming of Age Challenge]

    16.5 means second-guessing your every move trying to predict the impact it’ll have trying to make the right choices. 16.5 means sobbing at Senior Speeches in that cramped, sacred greenroom because you know it will be your turn soon to leave, and ...

  • Country, huh?

  • No, I Don't Think So

    I shake my head stubbornly. “No, I don’t think we can, Jane. You don’t seem to value honesty the way I do. You keep contradicting yourself and going back on your word.” “When have I ever given you my word?? It’s beca...

  • Introducing...Aiko

    Right. As if she would ever be caught dead attending some ridiculous school dance. Obedient little piggies, all willingly led to the slaughter of their own intellect, imaginations, and creativity. Oblivious, is what they were. She could see them all no...

  • Stranger

    When I was fourteen, like many other fourteen-year-olds, I started high school. In the most cliché way, I remember first stepping into that big, intimidating building, backpack on, math book in hand. I remember the way my tennis shoes squeaked on the ...

  • Fool's Mate

    The auditorium was neither full, nor empty, but that nebulous half-way point where people declared that there were too many people while others complained that there weren’t enough. Still, it was more than expected for an after school event. Clus...
