  • Personal Narrative: Is It Really Able To Sleep At Night?

    His name ringed in my mind continuously as I went to school. Jasper. I had given him another three packs of Skyflakes Crackers and two bottles of water before leaving a while ago.

Despite having only three to four hours of sleep, it was a blessing that I was still on my senses. I felt satisfied that I didn’t have to worry about not being able to sleep at night. It was a good feeling that paranoia would be crossed out from my list of things to worry about at night. I dropped by the nearest 7-11 store before returning home. I got a variety of food.

  • Limo: A Short Story

    Limbo I am an error in the source code of the universe. I shouldn’t exist, because I was never born. That was my fault. That’s why I’m still anywhere at all. Remove me from the equation, and I’m still part of it. Keep me, and I’m not. Paradox. So far as I can tell, the universe has decided that I’m someone else’s problem.
