It was the year 1996 in the month of June, I will never forget that month and year because it
My interview was done with Mrs. Elkins. She is a Pharmacist at the local drug store. In the interview, she stated that she has voted for many years. She also went on to say that she likes to volenteer to several organizations in our community. Mrs. Elkins stated that it is our civic duty as a citizen to help out our community. As a citizen, she said, that if everyone would give just a little to our community, it would make it a better place for the next generation. Mrs. Elkins has had her chilfedn involved in community organizations since a small age. With her children now adults, she stated that they are still involved in the community.
The blinding rays of Los Angeles sunlight jolted me from my comfy bed in my apartment outside of the UCLA campus. My eyes were still heavy with sleep and my usually coiled brown hair was in a fuzzy static mess. Out of the blue, my smart phone made an irritating buzzing sound on my bedside table. I turned my torso to the table and picked up my vibrating phone, while groaning and rubbing my eyes, to read who the caller was. “Dr. Flournoy…? Oh, it’s my therapist!” I mumbled to myself. I looked at the time on my phone. “Jeez, she’s calling at 5:00 in the morning? It must be really urgent.” I picked up the still ringing phone, curious about why she was calling me.
¨Please tell me we're almost there¨, whined Brianna. Brianna was impatient as ever, and the fact that they'd been in the van for almost six hours straight was definitely not helping. Brianna and her friends, Taylor, Sophia, Tamara, Julia, Riley, and Brenna had spontaneously decided to go on a road trip
When asked about my UMA experience the way I would sum it up would be this school is there for the students from start to finish and even beyond. UMA goes as far as helping their students/ alumni find careers in their areas. This school is nothing shy of being
Meet Doc! This little cutie sweetly lopes around while making little snuffly sounds. He LOVES playing with his tugging toys especially if it’s with his sister. If one of them has a stick or toy, the other will grab the other end and they will pull each other around. Doc is
The Pill The room is filled with machines and nurses surrounding a patient. Three paintings, all of beautiful flowers line the walls of the hospital room. The machines are screaming and yelping, but the nurses just reassure us it will be alright. Olly, with his dark brown eyes and perfect brown combed over hair, and I watch as Olly’s father fight death.
-Pete- I inhaled and felt the warm smoke fill my lungs. I held it for a moment and exhaled, watching the smoke float off into the air above me. I passed the joint down to the next person in the circle. Then, someone put a bag of white powder on the coffee table. Drugs have been picking up popularity over the decade, and with it being 1969, I should really join the party.
“Because I was just so dang excited, that’s why,” said Eli, stepping closer to her, not realizing that she wanted to smack him. “It’s good to see your fire back, Allie Mae. It’s been missing of late.”
“O-Oh, okay,” Alex replied again in an acceptance that suggested sure, why not? A few minutes later Tucker reappeared in the room carrying a tray filled with all of the things Lyanna had asked him to prepare. He set it down upon the coffee table that ran between the two sofas and then he asked if he could get anybody anything else. Alex had told him, “No thank you.” and Lyanna then said, “That will be all, my dear.”
Luke put his hand on Mikes shoulder. “Mike I know you don’t believe that bull you’re saying right now.” Toni pleaded with Mike, “You have us so walk away from her.”
The silence echoes around the room, dripping from the walls and puddling in her head. She takes a step in the direction of the swirling dark tower. It erupts from the ground like a bone from the skin of a child. Her feet feel like weights, trying to hold her back, keep her from the pain. But there is something that keeps her going, some sort of sick twisted part of herself she keeps hidden in the depths of her mind. She reaches the base of the tower and looks up.
She reached for the bulky remote control attached to the wall and lying at the top of her mattress. After she called the nurse, she pressed the power button off and watched as the picture faded to a tiny dot in the center of the screen of the outdated television. She stared at the dot until it, too, faded into the darkness of the screen. She lay back on the pillow and closed her eyes, trying to decide whether to ask for more medicine. She fought the nagging feeling that she really didn't need the pain meds as much as she wanted the pain meds. Well, I deserve it, she thought. Maybe I can take a nap if they give me more medicine.
Mike Fleiss has been going to Twitter and teasing who will be the new guy cast as The Bachelor every day. There are a lot of rumors flying, and Luke Pell is one of the names being thrown around. Now Daniel Maguire of Bachelor in Paradise is speaking out and wants everyone to know that he would love to be The Bachelor and if he can't have the job he thinks that Chad Johnson would be perfect. E! Online shared what Daniel Maguire had to say about it all. During a conference call with reports, Daniel spoke out.
The ICU is about full, practically every bed possessed by some individual sufficiently unfortunate to require one. It wasn't the fluorescent lighting that woke me up, it was increasingly the scent reminiscent of latex gloves and clinical substances. My eyes glimmered open gradually and whatever I could see was white,
