As I binge watch The Vampire Diaries lying prostrate on my bed, I drool over the hot vampire that I fantasize will sweep me off my feet. I catch myself dreaming of a bloodsucking vampire that will bite my neck, but then reality kicks in and I remember that I am single. I know vampires are not real, and I realize that I enjoy being single more than I like being in a relationship, even if there are fetching and thirsty bloodsuckers out there. While I do think about having someone to spend my time with, being single affords me more freedom and independence, allows me to build my self-esteem, and that in the end, strengthens who I am.
Late at night, I snuck out of my bedroom door as everyone was asleep in their beds. Cautiously, I tiptoed over to the living room TV, overflowing with eagerness, I soon hear the Rugrats theme song I loved so much. Anxiously, I watched Tommy and the gang make their way to another adventure. But that soon ended as my older brother peers his head from the darkness of our living room only to find me, I was sent to my room. Learning from those moments, my awareness grew steadily, attempting to perceive the creaks of the bedroom doors opening from neighboring rooms. At that time, my plan was foolproof, but I didn’t count on the unpredictability of my loved ones, and ultimately ended up not watching as much. Later, I realized Rugrats wasn’t always on the air, other shows like Chalkzone, Invader Zim and Catscratch including many others, would feature instead. As luck would have it, there was one spectacular show in particular that stood out from the rest called Hey Arnold. It was a real game changer, it had a compelling story, a distinctive yet riveting character set including Arnold himself and a kicking outro, the melodious flow of the saxophone had a refreshing jazz
I walked to my house soaked, crying, and my nose dripping blood. This is why: When I got on the loud, stinky bus, 2 girls were waiting for me At my seat. After I sat down to do my homework, they distracted me by pouring some water on my head. After that they grabbed my homework and ripped it up into a million pieces.

We did everything and anything, never taking a break from an adventure. It was all new to me, yet felt so familiar, it was home. Mornings were spent exploring the unknown campus and nights were spent at parties meeting new people I would come to call my bestfriends. We enjoyed the cards college dealt us and it’s “work hard play hard” mentality. Everything was on the table, it was just a matter of how you roll the die. I have never experienced a week quite like it, the summer air still rolls through my senses as the anthem, Closer, whispers in my ear. By the time I got home I was covered in the memories of the scorching frat house basement and mutual friends I came to know. Everything was
Most people can relate to what they call “Friday Night Lights.” Whether you played, coached, cheered, or watched a high school football game, you know how exhilarating they can be. As a high school student you felt like the coolest kid ever wearing your jersey to school and getting asked a million questions about the upcoming game. The feel of football is so different from any other sport. You sit in a locker room blasting music getting pumped up. Once you run onto that field and see hundreds of people in your schools colors jumping up and down screamings there 's no better feeling.
In life, it always helps to feel included or to have something to relate to. Mine just so happened to be a television show. I’d like to think I identify most with the characters from “One Tree Hill”. In this show, it begins while the kids are in still high school, juniors actually. Later in the seasons it continues on with their life outside of school as adults. The choices the characters made throughout the series and the many challenges they faced began to relate to me in different ways. Not so much the trials they faced exactly but with the way the characters handled them in general. As cheesy as it sounds, this is why the show has so much meaning to me now.
I stared, face pressed against the glass window, leaving smeared breath marks. Trying to get my last glance at the house, but my tears making my vision blurry. I could see faint outlines of my friends waving goodbye, I knew I’d never see them again. The car was dead silent besides the sniffling and the sound of the car going over the bumpy road as we drove up the road until the house, my friends, and neighborhood were out of sight. I was born in Framingham Massachusetts and we lived there happily for years. My siblings and I had lots of friends there and we also had family close by. One day, we found out that we were moving to Sudbury, my dad’s hometown. My parents came to assent and had decided that this wasn’t the place they wanted my siblings
With tennis shoes tight on my feet, my legs begin to pound into the pavement on my road. My feet race on, one right after another, along the road. It isn’t long before something feels wrong. I can’t tell what it is. My gate seems off, and my legs seem almost more free. I keep looking at the world racing by me. Sun and blue skies warm my face, and chirping birds keep me company. A summer day couldn’t be better. Then, it strikes me. How could I have not noticed it before? The free legs! The chirping birds! It all seems so obvious now. I reach my hand down to my pocket to confirm the growing suspicion in my mind. Upon contact with the empty pocket, my suspicions are confirmed. I had forgotten my phone. How could I go for a run without one of my favorite podcasts? I suddenly
I decided to write a narrative as there are many genres that I have not yet explored such as crime and romance. The story 'vacancy', consists of a romantic couple and their experience with crime, however both characters are withholding large secrets from one another. I was influenced by the TV series Pretty Little Liars and American Horror Story as they both contain murder and supernatural themes.
We may never know when our life is complete. Life is filled with endless possibilities and a great range of problems that will always affect the future. In the novel and film, High Fidelity, Rob Gordon cannot put the pieces of his life together as he struggles to form a strong relationship with the people around him. It was a long and hard conflict he had to face, though he was able to learn the absolute “Truth”, or noumena, of reality. Similar to Rob, all I wanted was my life to be one. I had this mindset that I had to fit into something. Whether this something was the “in” crowd, the artists, the writers, the jocks, I wanted to feel like I’m part of a larger group. This may have been the same way Rob had felt when searching for reasons as to why his life is the way it was. We both
Yeah, I was really shocked when I saw it but at the same time very happy because it is such a funny fact (•ө•)♡.
One of the biggest turning points in my life was when I got my first job. I wasn’t even old enough to drive yet when I was first hired at the Middletown Sportsmen’s Club. I remember the anxiety and excitement that came along with it. I was so scared that I would mess something up when I first started and I remember my dad saying to me “don’t worry about because everyone makes mistakes especially when they are doing something that is new to them.” This was one of my first responsibility that takes place in the adult world. I developed many new skills that I would’ve never known it wasn’t for this job. I learned to handle myself in a polite manner in front of adults and I also learned about work equipment such as how to run a tractor and a bobcat. Getting this job was very life changing for me. I found that after working for several months I was starting to get more mature and responsible.
In It’s a Wonderful Life, George Bailey never realized the impact his life had on the lives around him. He took people for granted and cared about all his problems more than his love ones. I think that the people in your life that make an effort are very important because they help shape you into who you are as a person. One person in my life that has inspired me to be the young woman I am today is my sister, Melissa.
I once became friends with a ghost named Henry, he was or still is nicely haunting a hotel in Georgia. Another time I befriended a ghost named Cecilia, she was in the process of moving on, but I didn't have the heart to tell her she wasn't doing it right. She wasn't making peace, she was creating more attachments.
