John and Samantha VignetteJohn's wife of four years, Samantha, lay beside him. Her blonde, straight hair fell around her and onto hers and John's shoulders as they laid next to eachother. The movie, giving a few clues that it was nearing to an end, was muted to allow Samantha to continue to doze. She had fallen asleep about halfway through. She was never one for movies. John smiled and laid a passionate kiss upon her head and ruffled her hair a bit. She didn't mind. She sighed happily and pulled her feet farther up on the couch. Her light pink robe followed her movements. She moved her hand a bit on John's shoulder, her red nails glinting on the dim lamp light. The house was mostly dark except for the lamp in the living room and a few beams of moonlight through the front hall window.John and Samantha Vignette6 months ago in Settings More Like This

The September weather was an interesting one to witness firsthand, especially standing out over the lake like this. Many people seem to regard this month as autumn already, but the scenery tells a new and different story. Forest green leaves still dot the trees yet some show the beginning of scarlet tips. A single leaf decides to make its escape, falling and twirling like a performing ballerina before finished final by landing without a sound on the clear surface of the lake, as reflecting as always.
My reflection stares back at me, those honey-golden eyes never blinking…before flitting back across the lake. As much as I seem to take a liking immediately to this newfound sanctuary- the calm and quiet exterior of the setting contrasts greatly against the shouting and arguments forever raging in my head. That’s something I’ll deal with later…for now, I need a break.

Head aching with a deep throbbing pain, you found yourself curled up tightly against a much smaller body. Whoever they were, it was warm and you didn’t want to move. The pain that stabbed at your heart was that of a blow to the chest. Memories of the night before hit you like a ton of bricks, and you realized that there was no going back to sleep now. There was no going back eighteen hours to scream at the Asian man you’d fallen in love. Don’t be selfless this time! Be selfish! Stay with me, Tadashi! Despite the flames in your mind, you had a hard time putting pieces together but there was one thing you were sure of. There was no going back to the way things were. He was gone, and it seemed, the last bit of Hamada you were going to have in your life was lying in your arms, much like a child after having a nightmare.

Filipino Identity: Part I After seeing a fellow Filipino deviant’s journal about what he saw in TV Tropes describing Filipinos' 'National Stereotypes,’ I think its time to share what I’ve learned regarding ‘Filipino Identity and Culture’ during an orientation I took for a cultural exchange trip I took a while back. During the orientation, a local anthropologist from one of the universities shared his study and knowledge about what being a Filipino is and what is their identity now.Filipino Identity: Part I2 years ago in Editorial More Like This
But, of course, one should know at least a general meaning of ‘identity’ to begin with. According to the professor we had there, “identity is a basis of selfhood and in the past, traditions have controlled the kind of person individuals should become.” Traditions are usually connected with our past; therefore he added that, since it is now modern times:

I rolled over so I was lying on my stomach. The ground underneath me was hard and cold I brushed it with my hand and felt its smooth surface. Cobblestone. Another thing that felt normal, but at the same time out of place. I heard a strange noise that sounded far away. It was familiar sounding, but I couldn't put my finger on what exactly it was.

"Stop! Just stop the music!"
All of a sudden, instruments ceased playing and the singer's voice came to an abrupt stop. Music that had been previously been blaring throughout the practice room immediately came to a halt and was quickly replaced by a lingering silence.
Maria, or Ria as she had become known to the members of the band, could only stare at the reason why they all had suddenly stopped doing what they were supposed to be doing and, apparently, she wasn't the only one. All eyes were fixed at the young man behind the drums, they were all waiting expectantly at what the Indonesian had to say . Said Indonesian was rubbing his temples and muttering incoherently in an annoyed manner. Scowling, Jaya turned to look up at his fellow bandmates.

“Yeah. That’s pretty much everything, ana~” Waen just smiled as he sipped his tea.

The following text is a paradox. With facts on a fictional personality. It's an invalidated analysis of the human psyche, written for momentary personal amusement, cynicism and with pseudopsychological sadistic intentions to provoke thought, humor, awareness, frustration, irritation, self analysis and confusion. While the stated facts can be interpreted as consistent, if any knowledge on the subjects touched is possessed, this is in no way a professional opinion. In other words, what you are about to venture in, is as official and insightful as it is also nothing but bullshit, as most psychoanalytical texts are. My advice? Simply, enjoy.
Due that I have recently become aware of how lot of people, females mainly, overlook the fact that Tate IS a psychopath. He burned Larry in an act of rage, which is one of the FEW things psychopaths can actually feel.

It was never going to be easy teaching teenagers that were the ages of fifteen and upwards, but then again Zack had always enjoyed a bit of a challenge, in fact he found it the best form of entertainment for a teacher to have.
In his classes, Zack had noticed that there was always the same type of child in each class that he taught, though he was firmly against stereotyping, he found himself doing it on a regular basis.
For example, whenever he was stepping in for the English teacher, who was constantly ill, he had divided the class up into their social groups so that he found it easier to deal with them if they annoyed him.
He knew that as soon as the loud and obnoxious kids would sit near the back in a corner, this was obviously to try and hide the fact that they were on their mobile phones, but moving to the back actually did the opposite, it made you look even more suspicious.
Zack had noticed that whenever the girls entered the classroom, they would just sit together
