Buisness Pig chapter 1Sally was what you would call a work alcoholic Sally was a great worker getting things done and done well. She would spend hours doing things for her job but spending this much time at work had it drawbacks. One was obvious by the fact she was a bit chubby. Sally cared for the way she looked but it was hard to make health food after a long day's work. She would always end up at the office snack machine deciding between one junk food and more junk food. Things would be different this night.Buisness Pig chapter 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Sally closed her laptop and stretched her arms. She looked at the clock and saw it was ten o'clock; "time to leave I guess" she sighed and got up. She had been working on her marketing ad proposal since 8 am that morning. She was glad she had got most of it done, though she had to admit it was a lot harder after she had fried Beth. Beth had been her assistant for the past three years and had been a very good one at that. She felt bad having to fire her but when Beth accidently ran over Sal
How My Business WorksHow My Business Works2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
My business works because it's actually not a business. And by this I mean I hardly make any money with my pictures. For me photography is not a way to make money but to invest money, and I work several other jobs to be able to pay for my art. I'm a tour guide on waste to energy plants and wastewater treatment facilities, I'm a concierge at the house I'm living, I work as a Photoshop instructor and on weekends I take care of the library of the University.
Sometimes people say to me: I can hardly believe you're not making money with your photos because they are better than the work of many professional photographers.
Of course it's flattering when somebody says something like that even if I don't always agree. But here's the thing: the very reason why I'm able to work on this level is because I don't have to make money with my pictures. If you're a photographer who wants to make a living out of it you are forced to do things differently. You have to focus on what your customers like and

Wonder Woman was, obviously, quite oblivious to this as she walked sharply and confidently down the sidewalk, approaching the office of her close friend, Senator Julie Martin. The two women had been working together for some time now, as perhaps the most visible warriors in the war against drugs coming to America.
Two years ago, when Senator Martin was elected, it was built mostly on the anti-drug platform, and she had held true to her campaign promises. By day, the young, vibrant politician worked tirelessly to pass bill after bill cracking down on those responsible for bringing illegal drugs into the country. And by night, her secret, underground network of informants passed her information about large drug deals, which she then passed on to the mighty Amazon Princess – and Wonder Woman was happy to do her part, and a

The blonde Kryptonian had done the same thing earlier, as she had been trying to locate Black Canary and Vixen; the two heroines had been following an anonymous tip about an art smuggler.Paint it Purple6 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
The signal was definitely coming from somewhere inside the multi-story building, but the Amazon Princess couldn’t tell which floor. So, after a few times flying around it, she landed softly and gracefully at the entrance, and walked in. The lobby was quiet and empty; to her left was a service elevator, and she decided to take that up and see what she could find.
The whole building seemed very dark and quiet, but as she neared the top, Wonder Woman caught a bit of light coming from the top floor. The elevator came to a stop, and the superheroine got out, walking down the hall

Weak and frail minded
With sweet words to spare
But I am still alive
I may be broken
Doused in the flames of my own end
Shattered fractions of glass
A former lady now seen the darker side
But I am still alive
I may be rough around the edges
Unusual compared to the other girls
A different life and a different family
Searching endlessly for an end
But I am still alive
I may not be what you expected
That shouldn't make me an outcast
For beneath this 'weakness' I'm still a person
Still me with a backbone and wisdom to share
But I am still alive
Even though you hate me
I am still alive

this is the life i hold dear
and it is the demons the demons that i truly fear
that are buried deep in my mind
and not very kind
The demons the demons they tear at my skin
in a place i should never have been...
I try my hardest to escape
yet i am always a little too late
Walking down a street
holding something i am wanting to keep
that something just happens to be very sharp
and i will drive it through the demons hearts
As i go back to the place i should never have been
the demons the demons they sit and grin
I drive the sharp dagger through one's throat
as the blood spews out i nearly choke
I drive glass through anothers eye
and feel as though i am going to die
i drag a blade through the last ones head
i collapse and then i am dead
The demons the demons who tear at my skin....
at a place where i should never have been...
are the only things that keep me from going insane
as i walk along memory lane...

The dark had always scared Miranda. Not being able to see, it was the unknown that scared her when she was trapped in the dark. She always had a plan, she knew what she wanted and how to get it, the unknown scared her. She planned everything, analyzed everything.

Kevin and Dave's mothers had signed them up for a private school. They were fed up with the constant irritation of everyday life of school. However, Kevin and Dave didn't mind it; school didn't pose a problem to either one of them. Their moms thought that they were exposed to fights, drug use and any other problem that would typically happen at school. And they were. They usually stayed out of the way of those things, too. But it was too much for their mothers to absorb that that was life. However, they also thought that Kevin and Dave were growing a bit of an attitude towards either parent. So, they signed both of them up for a private school, in which, they will both attend together as friends. The boys were confused; how were they, in anyway, 'have an attitude'? They were obediant children! They did their homework, listened to their parents and played games like any other boy would. They assumed it was probably something to do with the whole school problem.

Looking left and right you stopped and leaned against a tree, catching your breath. Before you could scream there was a hand on your throat holding you against a tree.

The clouds in the sky moved, revealing the cresent moon. Your eyes widen and so did the vampires.

I tuck and I bind,
I pack and I grind,
But still somehow
I cannot find
The man inside
He wants out,
Let him free!
But he knows what you
Expect him to be
So I try to exceed
What you think of me
And make you change
How your thinking sees
Just a girl with small boobs
and a sock in her pants
But that's not me
You're just in a trance
Society's made you
Feel what they feel
And think what they think
Until it's not real
To hope that someday
You'll be who you need
Who you want
Who you feel
You really should be.
So I write this story
In hopes you'll find
That I'm still me
Whether I bind
Or hold my head high
Or look like a man
Because I look past it;
I know that I can.

See that's what they call it.
But they teach us to do, not to think.
A genius doesn't answer every question perfectly,
A genius questions every answer given.
A system that judges success by the amount of bills you have,
Makes you work to the bone,
Cuts your soul in halves,
Make us seem like a bunch of clones?
Are we nothing more than machines?
Fill in the right answer, nothing more is accepted.
Thrown away if you can't follow instructions,
Is this in efforts in increase production?
Shall we drive the passion away from everything?
When everyone tries only to survive,
Shall we exist solely to die?
A system that completely determines your life.
Wasn't this system meant for us to thrive?

What use is there in the words you say
I'm just the one that you hate today.
Your job is bad and you're utterly blue
But did you know that I used to love you too?
Everytime we're home it's all the same
It's like you don't even know my name.
Who am I to you; daughter or son?
Or do you just treat me like everyone.
I used to think that we had a life
But now your words are just like a knife.
Since when did praise and pride turn bad
Why can't we have what we once had?
I'm tired of silence and living this way
I'd like to wake up happy someday...
I dream at night of those better times
When your eyes for me, they used to to shine.

Hiding in the bathroom
Eight long years ago
Eight years old and hiding
Because I just don't know
Why it is they're fighting
Or how to make it stop
I cry out of fear and
The pain that's in my heart.
Hiding who I am inside
So nobody will see
The ways that I am different,
The ways that I am me
The ways that I am weird
And ways that I am not like them
Maybe if I'm "normal",
Someone will be my friend.
Hiding underneath my sleeves
The things that I have done
Hiding so that all my scars
Will never see the sun
Hiding that I blame myself,
Hiding my self-hate
Hiding in the darkness,
Hiding bloody chains.
And still today I'm hiding
In so many, many ways
Hiding the abuse so that
I won't be sent away
Hiding from my family
So I will not start a fight
Hating that I'm hiding
Hating my whole life.
