The Story Of My Brain SurgeryMy name is Justin and I am 28 years old. Fifteen years ago I under went bilateral brain surgery for epilepsy, it wiped it out completely, this is my story about what I experienced.The Story Of My Brain Surgery6 days ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
When I was born I had epilepsy, but we didn't know I had it until I was 8. My third grade teacher knew something was very wrong and explained it to my parents that she believed it to be much worse then a problem with paying attention in school. All the teachers I had up till then had told them that I was a bad kid, had ADD / ADHD, or that I just refused to pay attention in class. The type of seizures I was having and eventually diagnosed with are known as Complex Partial Seizures, they can be very tricky to pin down as was the case with me. When I would have one I wouldn't know it had occurred until after word, and there was no warning before they would happen. What made them really difficult to pin down was that when they occurred I would stare off for a moment or two like I was daydreaming but
ColorsRed is the heat you feel when you’re angry at your best friend. It is the color of passion when you’re kissing your lover after months of being apart. It is the color of life as it courses through your veins.Colors1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Blue is the sadness you feel at three in the morning when it seems like there is no hope for you anymore. It is the tears streaming down your face after your first break up and your first failure. It is also the water as you swim in the ocean, or float in a pool surrounded by your closest friends.
Brown is the dirt between your fingers when you’re gardening. It is the mud that you got stuck in just after it rained. It is the strength in a tree’s bark that keeps it reaching for the sky.
Green is the blades of grass beneath you when you’re sitting outside. It’s the color of friendship and of crisp dollar bills in your hand after you've cashed your first check.
Yellow is the sun gazing down on you a hot summer day. It is the color of l

Yup, that’s what’s going through my mind right about now. I’m seventeen years old, a junior in high school, a drummer for a band called Toxic Love and I have a major crush on a major beauty. She is the man crusher, everybody wants her, and no one can have her. She is cruel and sadistic and so absolutely gorgeous.
God I couldn't stop staring at her. Standing at five foot seven she is three, or maybe four inches shorter than I. Her skin is fair, her hair blonde, and her rocking body. Her eyes though, centered in a heart shaped face, they were like pools of the clearest water. You could almost drown in them, so beautiful.
Wow. Wow. Wow.
What am I thinking? Amber Gracen would never go for me, heck, my band
What it's like being with youBeing with you is like being in a dream. Not exactly a good dream, but not at all a bad one. It’s like one of those dreams that when you wake up, you remember it, detail-to-detail. But if you were to wait long enough, it starts to fade, so you get your phone, pen, pencil, paper, whatever it is to jot it down so you don’t forget it. Not because it was a good dream, definitely not the best, but it’s one worth remembering. You’re not all too sure why, but you know it in your gut, it is worth remembering. That’s what it’s like to hang out with you, to be with you. It’s not the best, not the worst, but something I find worth remembering.What it's like being with you1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

Power Ponies: For me, this episode was nothing short of a fun, entertaining send-up of every superhero ensemble comic ever made. The Mane-iac was a fun villainess, it was nice to see Spike overcome his limitations as a goofy sidekick character he hated and the Mane Six as superheroes were all unique in terms of costume designs and powers that were inspired by several other well known Marvel and DC characters (Applejack/Mistress Marevelous: Batman and Wonder Woman, Fluttershy/Saddle Rager: Hulk, Rarity/Radiance: Green Lantern or Star Sapphire, Twilight/Masked Matter Horn: probably Scarlet Witch, Rainbow Dash/Zap: Storm or Thor and Pinkie Pie/Fili-Second: Flash or Quicksilver). Plus, the action scenes were EXTREMELY entertaining.
Bats!: Now I can see why people complained about this episode. It's Merriwether Williams, the characters are mean for the sake of being mean, etcetera, etcetera moving on. However, there ARE still some things to enjoy about this episode. The Vampire Fruit
Unwanted TendernessShe opened a website of an on-line dictionary to check on her unsure ortography. It seemed to be failing a bit, together with English spelling lately.Unwanted Tenderness1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
So there it was, the word she used, it was absolutely proper!
I'm not losing my mind as I thought, then...
She surfed a few other Firefox tabs, listening to confusing dubstep and what-the-hell-is-it music, that she liked. A wondering toothe-ache gave her a thought, that it's a pain of the last few weeks and stress slowly building up. A singn of some significant brain and life change, that has commenced on that faithful full-moon night, when the moon was the closest to Earth. It then switched something, triggered a few molecules in her brain, and it has started.
Oblivious, she switched to the tab with the dictionary again.
"I love you, my teddy bear." The tab said.
She blinkled. It was an ad. An unsuspected, late-time ad. "Check how people call themselves tenderly. A dictionary of affectionate Polish names."
She flinched in her mind.
Playing GamesWe sat on the floor of her old house, playing a game of cards and cardboard money. We had been playing all night and, in the pre-dawn morning, I believed I had the advantage and she did too, so she chose to distract me with conversation.Playing Games1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
"So I've been meaning to ask," she began, possibly leading with a lie "what's the hardest part of your job for you? I don't think I could handle some of the horrible shit you've seen."
I saw through her game and decided to not let her throw me off by forcing me to think about something other than my plans. She wanted to steal the secrets I held in my hand, the objective of the game. I couldn't let her have them, so I told the truth. "Actually...the hardest part for me is communicating."
She was taken aback, not expecting this answer at all. "Oh? What do you mean? Because you're smarter than everyone else?" She had made a common assumption which was also a mistake.
A thin smile revealed my teeth, accompanied by a low chuckle. Volume had to be conserved

Craig and Coby were both excited finally to get there own Pokemon and finally being able to go out and become pro trainers. There first few rival trainers were tough to beat for sure, until they came across two normal looking girls and there Pokemon. Within minutes they were defeated however. Later in the evening though while relaxing for the night in a large forest, they started thinking of those two girls and not only talking about how strong they were, but were pretty cute as well. "You know Coby, those girls may have beaten us badly, you gotta admit they were kinda cute too." Craig said. "I know what you mean, oh hey check those out!" Craig said as he and Coby looked up towards the sky to see a couple of shooting stars go by. "Maybe we should make a wish or something, you know maybe we could make our Pokemon stronger." Craig laughed. "Yea yea whatever, I'm tired I am going to sleep." Coby said as he slipped into his sleeping bag. Pretty soon Craig started to feel tired and laid bac

Ugly SunriseIt was a Sunday in mid-August, around 6 am or so. I left my house while it was still dark. The air was stiff and muggy that morning and the sky was over cast with thick clouds that blotted out the stars.Ugly Sunrise1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I was heading to the zoo to lend them my service for the day. While driving down Grissom I recall noting how dark it was that particular day. Sure the solstice had passed and the days were steadily getting longer, but even the faintest rays of the new dawn would have arrived by now.
It was about 6:16 when I entered the access ramp to get on the highway. On Sunday morning all the streets and freeways were silent and devoid of life and my mind dared to drift away from watching the roads while the rest of the city slept late.
At the ramp’s highest point I finally saw day break. Weak sunlight illuminated the underbelly of the clouds with a hue the color of crusted blood. The sky behind the clouds took on the blue-black colors of bruises. Time marched on and the clouds slowly retreate

I do remember taking the early bus, but why I couldn’t recall. There was no need for me to get to class early that day, no professors to talk to or friends to meet, and it was that time of year between the first days of school and finals when the buses never got crowded or ran late between stops.
I was staring blankly out the front windows, watching traffic and thinking of things when I saw her board the bus- a young lady maybe my age, maybe not. She wore a short-ish dress more fashionable than my shirt and boy shorts get up. It fit her loosely but comfortably- obviously the dress was designed to keep the wearer cool on days such as this. What print the dress was I can’t recall because it was not her dress that left me breath taken.
It was her freckles.
Her skin was so pale and so f
Football season openerToday was the Bears season opener, at home, versus the Bills. They lost, by three points; but that’s not why I’m kind of sad today. My dad missed the whole game, this is the first season opener I can remember him missing, only made worse by the fact that we couldn’t watch together. I don’t get much time with my dad, he works a lot and is often too tired to really hang out with me or talk with me, so when Football starts it’s my time with dad, but not this Sunday, probably not next Sunday, and probably not for the Sunday after that… But at least I can cheer for who I want when he’s not home.Football season opener1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
BA: Language HomeworkWhen someone does not know their way around a new town, they should always stop and ask for directions. If they don't do this, they will waste a lot of their time driving their car around, searching for their destination. If we would just take a few seconds to ask questions, we would save many minutes of our valuable time and nobody will think they're stupid; they will think that person is just unfamiliar with their surroundings. They must overcome needless shyness if they want to use their time more efficiently. If I were overly shy, I would force myself to go out more and talk to more people. If we are really serious about overcoming the problem, we must always think positively if we expect to solve a problem no matter how difficult one may find it to do. It is just an attitude we must develop if one wants a more profitable future for ourselves.BA: Language Homework1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

The Red CoatIt was a beautiful, clear spring morning. The rays of the sun were still weak and hardly touched the earth but in the air was the unmistakably smell of new life.The Red Coat1 week ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
She stood motionless by the lake and watched thoughtful over its smooth surface. Her gaze wandered vigilantly through the forest which surrounded the shore and only when she was really sure to be alone she bent her head down to the water and drank. The sun warmed her slender back cozily and let the coat she wore shine in a bright brick-red.
The water tasted sweet and for a moment she closed contently her eyes when a shot echoed through the forest. The bullet broke the silence and scared a swarm of black birds that shot in panic from a tree into the sky. Her head spun around and her hazel eyes looked alarmed from tree to tree.
Then she heard it. The peaceful silence gave way to a dangerous thunder which rolled through the undergroth. Deafening dog barks rose and came directly towards her.
She ran as fast as she could and vanish

Tempters continued to rise as each and every Dreamstone burned and charged in the volcanic pit, while the hunters watched in dismay and horror as each passing moment lava began to rise, and blocking their only way out while also stripping away their life energy.
“Phoenix” rasped Artemis, who curled herself up against a rock; her sliver jade scales reflecting off a red glow from the heat.
“Yes Artemis?” he answered, leaning against the unbearably hot rocks that burned and melted through his fire red scales, forcing him to shift around.
“Is this how we were meant to die?” she asked, tears swelling up into her eyes “Because...I don’t want to….not like this….” She choked out, while little rivers of tears steamed down her scaled cheeks.

On the outside I look like any other 18 year old girl.
I put smile on my face and say I’m okay.
But how can I be?
I hide my fingers from everyone else.
In school I sit in the back and type as fast as I can when I take notes so no one can see my scarred fingers.
Sometimes they are scarred.
Sometimes the wounds are covered.
I want to stop.
I don’t want to pick the skin on fingers.
It hurts but I can’t stop.
I’ve tried for so long to make it stop.
But I can’t….
Another day passes and I lock myself inside my room.
It’s in the middle of the night and I can’t sleep.
The need for it is there.
I try to tell myself not to.
But it’s too late.
Pieces of my skin lay on the floor.
And a blood stained paper lays on the nightstand beside me.
I lay back down on my bed and cry.
My fingers hurt so bad.
Can’t someone help me?
Others have tried but nothing works…
