Intersection
I stop at the intersection, waiting for the walk sign.  A girl is standing next to me.  She's quite attractive.  Maybe I should... "Excuse me," I say, "which way are you going?" She turns to look at me, a bit surprised.  "I'm just going to the bus stop down here," she says. "May I walk with you?" She nods. We get to talking.  Lauren is her name.  Before we get to the bus stop, I've got her number and a coffee date for tomorrow. The date goes wonderfully. We share a lot of the same interests, and don't live too far apart.  We have a second date set up, this one for dinner. Over the next several months, we become more and more involved.

Creation
Sometimes when it’s midnight or maybe 12:30 or 1 am or even 1:30 or later (but not often), I put on my fedora and listen to some relaxing, thoughtful music and I go to get something to eat, and I walk out of my dorm and turn left to go to University Blvd and it’s quiet and just a little bit cool out and there are a few people outside but not many, and I look around at the night and my mind and heart and soul feel expansive, ready to do, and I get an urge to make something, something grand and beautiful and magnificent, something that will show to others what I am and what we are in our core, something bigger than I could possibly be

Intraverse's Fear
In the beginning, there was not.  Matter, light, energy did not exist—there was not even a void, for the very existence of void is defined only by the matter that does not inhabit it.  There was time, the force that drives all things, but it was impossible to measure as it flowed from nowhere to nowhere else. Then, there was.  An entity, a mind, existing as pure thought.  It saw all that wasn’t, but it did not see itself.  It would later become known as Intraverse.  What Intraverse thought, became real.  Over untold ages, he created all that exists—universes, as innumerable as the leaves on the Tree of Life itself, each with c

The Intruder
I attacked a ladder with my face last night. I’m not usually in the habit of assaulting climbing implements with my face, but it was dark.  I was in bed at the time, trying to fall asleep, and I thought it was an intruder.  I’d rather keep my hands and feet in good condition, so my head was really the only other weapon available to me.  Most people make a soft “thud” or “smack” sound when you ram your face into them.  This was more of a “SLAM!” sound.  Needless to say, I vanquished the ladder.  It now knows its place. Nonetheless, I probably should have realized that people usually don’t lean aga

Pencils
Numbered pencils. Such a controlled environment, you can't be trusted with your own writing implements. #2 is there, along with its siblings #1 through #36. Controlling your pencils--controlling your creativity? "This poem was written with pencil number 17. This expression of my life, my dreams, my desires, was written with a pencil with the number 17 attached to it with masking tape. A guard picked it from a hole in the lid of a tupperware box and handed it to me. I used it to display my soul to the world, and now it goes back in that tupperware box." How much more free might your soul be with an anonymous pencil?

65 Million Years Later
Boom. 65 million years later… We have spent several years studying the band of sediment that seems to have been deposited at the same time as the mass extinction that took place about 65 million years ago.  The radioactive material in this band is truly fascinating.  It is a substance that is only found in minute trace amounts on the Earth’s surface—and yet, here we have a layer of it as thick as my hand!  So now, the question becomes: what could have caused this? ---------- After several more years, we have dug in numerous places around the globe.  The radioactive band seems to be everywhere.  There seem to be two possible

Chapter 1 Of is tired. No, not tired, exhausted. It seems as though sleepless centuries have passed since she left the base with the others. Maybe centuries have passed. She doesn't know anymore. All she knows is that she will not stop searching until she finds him. For the hundredth…the thousandth…maybe the millionth time, she remembers how all this trouble began… *** "Of! Of! OF! WAKE UP!"

Chapter 3 It would be irrelevant and time-consuming to attempt to explain faster-than-light travel. Explanations of such things should be reserved for those actually interested in them. Suffice it to say, it works. It took the five guardians just under three weeks to travel from the base to Earth. They did not know where the base was, other than that it was on an Earth-sized moon orbiting a massive gas giant somewhere. For reasons of security, neither they nor the rest of the former inhabitants of the moon knew exactly where it was located. Judging by their travel time, they could have estimated that it was approximately 700 light-years fro

Chapter 4 Eventually, five people dressed in identical white lab coats entered the room.  Of was reminded of nature documentaries displaying how certain animals camouflage themselves in order to blend into their surroundings.  These people seemed to be doing just that—their white lab coats matched the white room perfectly.  She also noted that, of the five who entered, three were men and two were women—just as there were three men and two women in her own group. One of the women who had just entered spoke up.  "No need to be worried.  We just need to perform a harmless memory tap on each of you.  We need as much information about what you h

Chapter 5 "How can we possibly do that?" And challenged.  "None of us remembers how we got in…so how are we going to get out?" "Do we have any other options?" Of asked, barely containing her frustration.  "Face it—no one is going to come for us.  Either we try to find our way out, or we starve here."  As if to add emphasis to her point, The's stomach growled loudly. "Someone will come!" retaliated And, not even trying to contain her frustration.  "You just used the President's personal telephone, and admitted that you were not the President!  D'you think they'll just leave us here after something like that?" "And how long will it take, th

Chapter 6 No one did or said anything for several minutes after this.  Yes's breathing was still ragged, his face shining with sweat and tears.  Had Of thought to look at No at this moment, she would have seen tears in his eyes, as well.  All she could think about was what Yes had said.  That void…what was it?  Where did it come from?  Did it "come from" somewhere?  And what was its purpose, or lack thereof?  It must have something to do with the disappearing words…with the vanished population of their base…maybe even with the strange absence of people in this building.

1:33 AM and I'm bored
And it's been over half a year since I last posted a journal. Last semester was the hardest I've ever pushed myself, but I won. One B, one C, and three As--one of the As was in the hardest math class I've ever had, one I was sure I'd get a C in. Right now I'm doing as much nothing as possible before the break ends and the new semester starts. I stumbled across one of those trendy pseudo-Japanese logic puzzles. This one's called Hidato. http://hidato.com/ Bought a book of them at Barnes and Noble on a mad impulse, and not regretting it. I've done the first 56, excluding some I gave to my mom. They're quite fun actually, I recommend them to a

Yay for posting-surveys
Comment, and I will... a) Tell you why I friended you b) Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, et cetera c) Tell you something I like about you d) Tell you a memory I have of you e) Ask something I've always wanted to know about you f) In return, you must post this in your journal. I did some version of this a while back. But I was getting tired of my old journal, and wanted another one. Might be uploading things soon. I've volunteered to do some origami for the NTWF TCG, so I may or may not upload that onto here. Summer is pretty good. I'm in my second week as a math tutor at a local community college. Mo
