I’m not racist but, who was that lunatic? I should have thrown his hands behind his back and frisked him. But then people would accuse me of racial profiling. There’s been enough war between white cops and the black community. I didn’t want to deal with the heat I would receive for questioning this dangerous … Continue reading Undercover and Armed.
Black. Black. Black. Black. Black. Six bodies of black hanging against the wall. Dirty eye sores in a world of clean skin. Blackness–creeping up on me like a robber under the night sky. I can’t see myself in the whiteboards, because I see all of the black smudges that people have tried to erase. That … Continue reading Black and White.
I remember at one point in time I used to wear tie dye, colorful things, and all the colors of the rainbow. Now I wear mostly black and dark colors.

I had such a busy week, with finals and parties and meetings that I planned to sleep until 11:30 then go … Continue reading Adventures of a Bookworm: Building a Library
At five on the dot today, after sitting through an oral exam for over an hour, I spontaneously decided to go to the end of the year party the English department held for majors and minors. I decided on this last minute, and only since I was on campus for a final and I would … Continue reading Surprise Awards.
For my Teaching, Learning, and Technology class, we had to make an iMovie talking about a favorite teacher we have had during our K-12 journey that have made a difference in our lives. I had a plethora of amazing teachers, I actually think I loved them all, but I chose my absolute favorite, who was … Continue reading My favorite teacher (and many others’ favorite as well).
What happened to Cinderella? Beauty and the Beast? The family on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? The kids in Suite Life of Zack and Cody? The Bernstein Bears? Rapunzel? Mulan? I love where are they now, reunion episodes, and endings like on the series finale of Parks and Rec because I like to see their future … Continue reading What Happens After Happily Ever After?
He rolled over away from her, the thick and damp lint-invaded plaid fleece clinging to his naked, red, sweaty rolls.
