She was a firecracker, and I loved her for it. The next morning, everyone was up bright and early. I met a lot of people throughout the day. Some people ignored us, and some people listened. Just getting one second of someone 's time made me feel accomplished. I did a lot of the talking, but some people were willing to talk back. I learned some people’s stories, and they told me how they really were interested in a relationship with God. I don’t think I had ever felt a better feeling knowing I was able to influence that. As the sun began to set, the group made their way back into the hotel. Alexandra and I both laid on our beds in silence, staring up at the ceiling. I looked over at her and she seemed to be deep in thought. Finally, she spoke…

    He missed the thrill of the fight, the bloodlust that pumped through his veins. He fingered the gun on his belt and was low on ammunition. He came to what must've once been a living room. Only the back of the couch was still intact, the rest ripped to shreds and the stuffing decorated the floor. He spotted the boxes in the far corner. He ran to them and quickly emptied their contents into his back back. Once outside again, Minho gathered his bearings and set off back to base. The night was not…

    Being the youngest in the Sober Living, I live at, it’s like I have six moms and/or older sisters. All of the women have inspired me with their recovery and learning a new way of life, as so am I. One of the ladies I live with Tiffany P. (for anonymity reasons can’t write her full name; she is in a 12 Step program as I am) is a Hawaii-born lady, straight from Honolulu, Hawaii. The reason why I’m writing about her and not the other five ladies, is because our story starts in Acton Rehab almost…

    nearest river, Emily Anderson, and take in her yellow folder with a smiling leaf and the words Leaf Day, I think, “oh no”. So I get permission to use the bathroom and escape outside to collect my leaves, which turns out to be quite interesting. I could stay out for hours, but there are two things I don’t realize.

    The Way It Haunted Me People say that good things always come in pairs, but what about bad things too? My parents, sister and I decided to visit Cedar Point during what I like to call a dark fall. The days were hazy and honeyed, and cinnamon and pomegranate aroma filled the air. The skies were always awake and illuminated with the never-ending thunderstorms, and murky rains; the scattered leaves were luminescent in their yellows, reds, and purples as if they forgot they were about to die.

    “I’m not quite sure to be honest with you.” said Mitali. I looked out the cabin window, it was clearly night time. I couldn’t see a thing. But I knew, we were deep in the woods. Suddenly, I heard footsteps coming towards me. It sounded like they were getting louder and louder each time I heard one. The psycho guy who was following us stared at us from the other side of the room. I wanted to jump out the window, but it was probably locked and I would probably get even more lost. I had so many…

As an experienced hiker, I thought of myself as experienced enough to deal with the heat and smart enough to not have to worry about it. I would find out all too soon that I was neither experienced enough nor smart enough to deal with the Arizona heat.
