And there are things I can't recall.
I hate the fact I can't walk straight,
- End up walking into walls.
I hate that my slow shambling gait
Makes me invariably fall.
I hate that when I medicate
It does completely bugger all.
I hate the fact I've put on weight
Despite watching what I eat.
I hate the fact my joints inflate
In this dreadful humid heat.
I hate the fact I fascinate
Every person on the street.
I hate having to educate
Every doctor that I meet.
I hate when ignorant people state
My only problem is being unfit.
I hate that I can't communicate
The problems I refuse to admit.
I hate the people who berate
And tell me not to quit.
I hate people saying I look great
When I feel like utter shit.
I hate when people discriminate
Because of things that I can't do.
I hate people who try to commiserate

That I'm only getting what I'm due.

Chapter 12: Announcement Number Four
As the sun started to break over the horizon and the candles Stan had set at Kyle and Butters' heads finally went out, him and Kenny finally decided it was time to move. They knew their target: Rebecca Cotswalds, the girl who'd killed Butters.
Kenny had told Stan he shot at her with the Glock, so there might be a trail of blood leading in the direction she went if he hit her like he thought he did. "We can worry about any other survivors after we've killed her," he said as he shouldered his rucksack. His ax was in his hand once again while the Glock was resting in the waistband of his pants.
Stan nodded and shouldered his rucksack too. He held the shotgun in his hand but was still well aware of the bayonet in his rucksack - he'd taken it from Craig's body and cleaned it off she he'd have another weapon in case he ran out of bullets or the shotgun got jammed. "Yeah, let's, um," he glanced back at Kyle's sheet-covered body as the two walked out

Chapter 2: Training
I wonder if Sammy's okay. They better be taking good care of her.
It has been almost a week since I have seen my beautiful baby sister. The train ride to the Capitol, the opening ceremonies, the preparations, it all seems like a blur. She is the only thing to me, the only thing I think of as I enter the training facility for our first day of real preparation.
I have never been in a place with so many deadly objects. Any number of the things in here could draw blood with a single touch. I hate to imagine how fast they can sever entire limbs, or heads for that matter.
Not many of the other tributes have arrived yet, the kids from Districts 1, 2, 7, and 11. The rest must still be on their way.
I previously decided that my tactics for the Games would mainly involve hiding, avoiding the other tributes until absolutely necessary. In order to do this, I have to keep my distance from them and brace myself for any kind of condition or s

Too Young To Remember
"Hey, stop crying. You're making me feel bad." Someone voiced out.
"Huh?" A little girl was curled into a much smaller ball. She felt so alone at that time that she just wanted to disappear. But she couldn't disappear no matter how much she tried. She could only become smaller, as small as she felt in the suddenly big world. Her eyes blinked in surprise and she embarrassedly faced the other person. It was a kid, actually it was a boy. "I'm sorry. Umm " He had brown hair like she did only it was a crayon darker. He wore such a silly outfit, or at least to her. He had a red long sleeved shirt underneath a shirt that had a zebra's stripes. He looked familiar. " Jumpy?"
"C'mon, my names not that hard." If he was showing concern a while ago, it was hard to tell since he looked annoyed now. "It's Junpei. Jun-pei not Jumpy." He made an effort to pronounce every singl
Star InmateTwo men looked out from prison barsStar Inmate5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One saw the mud, the other saw the stars -
Enraptured, he stood gazing up at them,
Forgetting for a while that he was condemned.
The first man could not stand the sight
And turned away from the starry night.
Unable to lose himself in imagination
He dwelled, instead, on his situation.
After a while as his mood grew grimmer,
The cell seemed to grow smaller and dimmer.
He could not see the serene glow
That through the open window flowed.
His cellmate couldn't understand,
His cellmate didn't know his plans.
He knew the only way to escape this place
Was to lose yourself in Death's embrace
And how could he bring himself to die,
To leave a world full of wonders and starry skies?
He focused on the bad instead,
Ignored the stars shining overhead.
He'd been doing this for so long now
He could no longer do anything but frown
But with his last shred of optimism
He would find the strength to leave this prison
And soon he would be among those stars
That shone down

A Lazy Day
It was Sunday 10:30 AM the sun shined through his bedroom window in bright golden rays reaching his face and making his bright orange hair have a fiery glow to it, illuminating his pale blue room with a golden tint. The alarm on his cell phone went off playing one of his favorite songs, The One Star to wake him up. "ugh" he groaned, "five more minuets" he mumbled as he grabbed his phone to turn it off. Suddenly the boy's eyes widened as he exclaimed "crap, it's that time already?!? I'm gonna be late!"
He hurled himself out of bed immediately removing his pajamas and putting on his favorite shirt (which had a thick funnel collar he uses to hide his face) his white shorts, yellow wristband and favorite shoes that matched his shirt. Then finally attached his MP3 underneath his funnel collar. With ridiculous speed he bolted himself out of his bedroom.
"Neku?" his mother exclaimed, shocked at seeing him move so frantically around the house.
Different Levels of WeeabooDifferent Levels of Weeaboo4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Welcome! If you're reading this you may be looking for important answers!
1: How can I tell if someone, my friend, or even if I am a weeaboo?
2: What are key traits that every weeaboo displays?
3: Are there different stages of weeaboo?
LOOK NO FURTHER!
The following list displays the stages of becoming like the worst weeaboo I've met yet. She will be named later. The most important thing is that you realize that the term weeaboo is always used as a derogatory slur against nearly anyone associated with Japan. This can be something as arbitrary as watching anime, taking private or public Japanese courses, or even reporting knowledge about Japan. Please DO NOT give these pitiful people the satisfaction of a reply, because they are likely very sour people anyway! The important thing is that you are interested in learning about a new culture and want to educate yourself, and there isn't anything bad about that!

the god that was never therethe god that was never there3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
i watched a man speak once. he told of the stars, planets, and people- and how they all came to being. some people say a picture is worth a thousand words, but no one ever gives the worth of words that create images. he created images of blackness- of a non-existent identity.
he told me about the birth and made very clear that it was the only beginning that ever really existed. he said, "the creation of something is the start- and nothing happens before the start. there is no god to shoot a gun or shout, 'go'". there was no time- and time is really the only living thing to this very day.
my head collapses inwards- my eyes explode with small white lights and swirling colors.
i have seen people wearing beige sweaters and carrying meaningless charts, and they always seem to win at life. i see you become one of these people- your dreams are rotten, and your hope is only there as a survival tactic. i used to think that i knew you, and you told me what you thought right.

If you and I,
Were to live another day,

Would I be able to accept,
Such a sorrow.
If you and I,
Were to live another moment,
Relive that moment,
Because I wouldn't,
Be able to get enough,
If you and I,

Would that be enough time,
For me to show you all the love,
That I may hold for you?
If you and I,
Were to leave each other,
At this moment,
Would you forget me?
Never think about me,
Even if it was just another moment?
If you and I,
Could live another night,
Would you be sleepless,
Right beside me,
In this sleepless night.
If you and I,
Without a trace, Tonight,
Would I be able to fill the void?
The void that would remain,
In my heart,
For all the nights,
Of my life.

"What a smartass..." You thought as your American boyfriend sat on the couch, eating hamburgers, and playing video games. There were video game cases, bowls that used to be filled with ice cream, and hamburger wrappers everywhere. Not to mention many more junkfood wrappers. You sighed. Ever since America was reminded of his "I'LL DO WHAT I WANT BIOTCH!" scene/line/phrase is his show, Hetalia...well, he did exactly that.
You were sick of it. He hasn't told you that phrase/line yet but if he ever did...oh boy was he in for it. God knows exactly what you would do to Alfred if he even dared to call you a biotch or even tell you that he does whatever he wants. Hell no. He WILL listen to you.
You decided to sit next to him as he played his video game, Final Fantasy. It was rare for him to play this game. He usually played his war games like Call of Duty or Medal of Honor. And you hated both of them. It kept him WAY to occupied. Well, at least he didn't play any of the games like Japan played

The Rights of Sentient MachineThe Rights of Sentient Machine11 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
I am assuming the existence of sentient machines. A working definition of sentient machines is given. My argument: though a sentient machine would have many of the same rights as a human being, the very nature of a sentient machine would drastically alter the rights and obligations of a sentient machine from the rights assumed for human beings, and that with some reflection on the nature of a sentient machine, we, as a society, may be able to clarify exactly what the rights of a sentient machine are. I first argue that sentient machines deserve rights. This argument presents and refutes common arguments that machines, regardless of their level of consciousness should not receive any rights at all; in the process, it shows why sentient machines should have at least some rights. Next, I argue that sentient machines deserve human rights. This argument begins with a critique of the characteristics that implicitly make a moral demand for special human rights and shows that con

"It doesn't matter whether or not you like him," she said reasonably, trying to get the Bezarius heir's uncontrollable cowlick to lie down in some semblance of tidiness. "The Lakewood family is very important, and as the heir of one of the four Grand Duke houses, you should be there to congratulate him on his birthday."

He'd woken up that morning to find out that his heater had broken again so his apartment was freezing. Then he'd burnt his toast and been late for work. Once at work, three people had managed to piss him off; the last of which had decided that it would be an absolutely brilliant idea to dump their coffee all over his shirt and vest. And to top it all off, a bird had crapped on him when he'd finally gotten off work.
Then it had started to rain, which the sky had been threatening to do all day.
So, needless to day, Shizuo had had a really crappy day and he was grumpy and on edge and pissed off.
