The Saddest Eyes in the WorldHes got the saddest eyes Ive ever seen, and as he gets onto the train, I cant help but say a prayer for him. I hope hes going somewhere nice. Maybe hes going home to visit his mother.The Saddest Eyes in the World4 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
He looks like hes coming back from some stressful business meeting. Is that possible? Its late at night and all the regular offices closed hours ago. But hes got a heavy-looking briefcase overflowing with dog-eared papers. And hes wearing that severe black suit that looks very sharp but doesnt really seem fitting next to his childlike face.
His hair is cropped short. The cuts looks fresh and unfamiliar, like it was only yesterday that he was a long haired child running in the golden summer sunlight. But tonight isnt about summer frolicking. Its about haircuts and business suits and first days of school.
The bus lurches around a corner.
Notable Quotables - Astrology"By far, the fire signs are the most confrontational. If you piss off an Aries, they'll run you over in their truck. A Leo won't run you over, but only because they're distracted with looking for a bigger truck. A Sagittarius will run you over with a vespa because they think it's cool."Notable Quotables - Astrology6 years ago in Scraps More Like This

The Nature of CreativityEpiphany! I finally understand the nature of creativity!The Nature of Creativity4 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
First, let me begin with another question I have been struggling with. It's related, I promise. The question is:
Why is it important to be happy?
Every emotion is more or less of the same value, right? It's either good or it's bad, deviating from our usual disposition in whichever direction it may. It's happy, or sad, or angry, or whatever...Why does it matter if an experience is positive or negative? Beyond the experience of the individual, does one's happiness actually affect the world at large?
I'll venture that it really does make a difference, not just to one person and those they encounter, but to everyone everywhere. We want to be happy simply because it seems like we are moving forwards to a better place. Maybe that's where so many cultures got the idea of a pleasant afterlife, like there is a happy ending to life's story itself
For You, My AngelsYou're a green mushroom.For You, My Angels6 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
You're a hundred rings.
You're a medipack
Filled with healing things.
You're a thunderstorm
On a humid day.
Drown the anger out.
Wash the hate away.
And when I am hurt,
Crying too hard to see,
I'm still not lost because
I know you're watching over me.
You are my angels,
Special from the rest.
My last string of sanity
Is something that can attest.
So all I want now
Is this interlude,
A chance for me to
Express my gratitude.
York, U SuckHere's a story that really happenedYork, U Suck6 years ago in Scraps More Like This
And in fact, it's still happening now.
So please excuse me for being outspoken,
Throwing a spaz, and having a cow.
It seems I got completely screwed.
The last course I need, denied to me.
I don't have too much else to go on.
This school's not worth my anxiety!
York, you love to toy with the undergrads.
That much I can say is true.
I never liked bureaucratic establishments
Right now there's none I hate more than York U!
York U sucks!
York, you suck!
Why can't someone just give me a break?
York U sucks!
York, U suck!
This is more than anyone should have to take.
I called up each and every department
And each department just sent me away.
So what's a student to do in this position?
They just don't care what I have to say.
Nice and safe, in their ivory tower,
Damn them, those pretentious fools!
I suppose in a way I deserve it
For being dumb enough to play by their rules.
You suck, you suck, you suck, you suck!
I'll say it again cuz I'm so damn poetic.
