The ProgrammerI lean over his shoulder for a closer look at the monitor as he tap taps away at the keyboard but I don't expect to understand it, and I am unsurprised when I don't. I shake my head as he continues with it for moment before he clicks 'apply' at the bottom of the hundreds of lines of code. It just looks like chicken scratch on a computer screen to me. Only the numbers that designate each line of code make any sense. I wander off into the kitchen area, only half-interested in whether or not what he did gives him the results he expects. He lets out a frustrated groan, apparently unsuccessful at his back-end results. Or was it front-end now? I never can remember and I turn away to prepare a quick breakfast of toast, asking him in the process if he wants any. He responds enthusiastically even as he continues to work.The Programmer9 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Such is the way of the work-from-home programmer. It still amazes me. All the work necessary just to make a button clickable and to direct you to the right page. Front-end, I s

"uhhhhh!" you groaned the sun was barely up and your 'alarmclock' was yelling in your ear "wake up wake up wakey wakey~" sally was currently poking your forehead. "come on (y/n) you said we would play today" cracking one eye you peeked at her, she was right in your face now doing her best impression of a puppydog face. you sighed throwing the covers off "alright,alright i'm up let me get dressed" she squealed and raced out the door, you touched your lamp and turned it on so you could see what you had left to wear before laundry day.
you slipped on a (f/c) tank top and some comfortable black and grey jeans, while brushing your hair into a ponytail you hummed (f/song) until you could move your hand through your (h/c) hair. you walked across your room and opened the door only for sally to bear hug tackle you to the floor making you trip and fall on top of Liu. he chuckled at the sight of your red face when you realized you fell on him, "i-i-i'm so sorry Liu!" you stuttered

Random Writing You've all seen the grand blue sky above your head. You've all seen grey clouds and you've all seen the sky turn dark around nighttime. If you are reading this right now, I can assure you that you've seen these three things. You've seen more, as well. Perhaps you've seen the blurred shapes and distorted world around twilight; or perhaps you've met someone you loved or still love very much. I can assure you, even if, in the comments of this post, you deny any of these five things, you've experienced all of these. You've experienced tears streaming down your cheeks and you've experienced a smile of pure joy gracing your features. You've experienced pure rage and you've experienced unbearable disappointment. You can surely agree to having experienced all of these things, can you not?Random Writing17 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

My Bond With PokemonI'm gonna tell you a story about back in the day, specifically how I got into Pokémon. I grew up with it in a weird way.My Bond With Pokemon1 hour ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
At ages 3-11, I was a TV kid. basically early 2000's Nick and Cartoon Network, and occasionally things like PBS Kids. Sometimes when Cartoon Network was on, Gen 4 of the Pokémon Anime would be showing, and I watched bits and pieces of that. A few years later, Gen 5 came along, both on TV and on DS. I was still watching bits and pieces of the anime, but the recent one. Then in 2012, Gamestop had a BOGO sale on DS games, and I ran into what would be my first Pokémon games: Black and White.I bought both at that sale, even though I played Black first.Then came Y and Alpha Sapphire. Then I wanted to go into the past and find the earlier Pokémon games thanks to shps like The Score and Mckay's, and also an online ROM Emulation site called PlayR. Here I am now.
What's your Pokémon story?
