Ordering a latteI got in line at my favorite cafe inside Barnes and Noble and looked at the menu board scanning for the day's special; the special always cost $3.00; but in my case, I always had to add $ .50 for soy and another $.50 for extra syrup. I was lucky my regular flavor was on the day's special, tall, soy, Double sweet, Hazelnut mocha. After I made my order I Scanned the crowd and I saw my old school mate Karlynn walk in from the rain she called me about a month ago to ask a favor, she wanted to show her art in my studio in Seattle, I told her that I had been trying to find her for the same reason. Therefore, we decided to meet up and go over her portfolio.
TattooMy first tattoo I got when I was 31 yrs old, my girlfriend at the time paid for it; only $100.00 bucks she gave a $20.00 tip. The artist was great he had a light-handed touch, when I went in for my consultation I was told to bring in the design I wanted along with ideas for colors that I and the size I wanted it to be. When the day of my appointment came, I was so nerviest I had goose bumps. I was almost late for my appointment When I got there I told the artist to choose the colors that he thought best the outline was done in black first
Greyhound bus stationHe said that he was coming into town, he just did not say how. After surviving, two helicopter crashes in the war I knew he would not want to travel by plane, which left traveling by bus or train Jonathan is my best and closest friend. Especially after I dragged him kicking and screaming out of a rut after his second wife left him for something she swore she did not want, life as a military wife. He went off the deep end trying to chase her back to him of course this was all before he joined the Army. As I said, I dragged him kicking and screaming back to his rational senses. Just as he did for me on too many occasions for me to count, he always saw me as the little sister he has always wanted; he was the second person in my life to show me unconditional love. I gave it right back tenfold. I have no clue how I ever would have gotten along in my life without him. Whenever
An answering machine messageThe phone was ringing when I reached in to my pocket for my keys to the apartment. By the time I got the key in the lock it stop ringing and the answering machine picked it up. The voice was masculine and had an accent that I could not recognize nor place, the name he gave was foreign yet familiar, as I dropped the stack of mail on to the counter and my purse on the back of the couch, I kicked off my shoes at the door.
PostcardsDec 21, 1999
I received a postcard form Zoey to day she wants to travel the world for ten years just for the fun of it.

I got another postcard from Zoëy today this one says she is in Rome, Italy. She said that the air is grand and clean and that the villa that she is staying in is beautiful. She said that she had seen the ruins of ages old and gone, like the Roman Coliseum as well as the leaning tower of Pisa, which is so much bigger than they make it to be. She says that she is having dinner at a winery tonight and hopes that she does not fall in love with the most expensive wine on the list.
I got another postcard from Zoëy today this one says she is in Dublin Ireland. She said that she saw and kissed the blarney stone, and saw our ancestral home as well as met some of our distant relatives.

High school 9th gradeEveryone hates the first day of school, & I'm no exception. The popularity contest starts the same day, no other guessing games start until the middle of the year, you know the ones; who's most likely to succeed, who's the class clown, who's the teacher's pet, and all the other ones which are too many to list. New friends are made, old friends moved on to different schools, new enemies made, old enemies forgotten. Anyway, my name is Zoey Elisabeth Bathorery, & I am 13 years old. Too young you say to be in high school! On the contrary, I have an IQ of 145, & I am a card-carrying member of MENSA (a high profile club for nerds). A child Prodigy & outcast of most educational institutions, I was home schooled most of my life, my mom, had tried public schools but they were too boring & I also had a hard time sitting still. I made many enemies of the teachers, for correcting them in front of the class & from some jealous fellow students. All the different things my mom makes me do or the hobb
My Top 20 PS3 GamesWith the seventh generation of console gaming coming to a close, I feel like its time to pay my respects to my main system, the PlayStation 3. I've played quite a few games for this system and I've narrowed down my top 20 favorites. This is not a list of the top 20 "best" games, its a list of my personal favorite games; so keep that in mind. Now a couple of rules before we begin;
-One game per franchise.
-Third Party titles and Indie games count.
-This is just my opinion
With that being said, these are my Top 20 favorite PS3 games.
20. Twisted Metal
Twisted Metal is a helluva lot of fun, the fast paced over the top violence always keeps me entertained. Each vehicle has specific abilities that make them unique, although some are pretty much the same as others. Why is it at number 20, well the campaign mode is too short and only feature three characters, Sweet Tooth, Mr. Grim, and Dollface. That being said the game still
Same Sex Canadian MarriageSame sex marriage is wrong. It is unnatural and against God. Those who allow same sex marriage will burn in hell for their actions. These are the opinions of too many people in modern society. They believe that same sex marriage is disgusting and should not be advocated. This then poses questioning of Canada’s leaders who decided to legalize same sex marriage nationwide. Did Canada make the right choice? More than enough of the population agreed that it was or else the bill would not have passed. Canada did in fact make the correct decision to recognize same sex marriage.
For much of the time the sophisticated human race has existed, people were under the perception that marrying outside of race and class should be outlawed. Blacks could not marry whites and rich people could not marry the poor. People were dictated to only marry within what social parameters stated were acceptable. The first couples to marry outside of their race and class were heavily looked down on by fellow m
This I believe.I believe in Monsters and Goodness.
I know, it sounds childish and crazy, but let me explain myself.
The monsters that we've grown with, what if there's more then to what we hear about them? For
all we know, they could be friendly and they just got a short temper or maybe they were angry at
something and they took it out on us, or perhaps they are trying to tell us something and we
humans are just to idiotic to listen to their warnings. I guess what I'm trying to say is, "monsters"
can be good guys too, just anyone, they are alive after all.
Okay, I can see that you're thinking "no, monsters are monsters. They kill people for no reason"
and blah blah blah. Let me ask you this then; are we no better?
Humanity itself is constantly at war with its own species. We (humans) have the Holocaust,
World War I and II, Civil War, Boston Massacre, 9/11, Hundred Years' War, Thirty Years' War,
Iraq War, I could go all night (or day, depending on the time you're reading this).
We have shed so much bl

Never Enough (body Image)Perfection is Not Enough
In today’s culture, being attractive seems like a full time obsession. Body image is always emphasized in many aspects of the environment. The way people feel about themselves and what others see in their body is not permanent and it is receptive to change by the environmental influence. Evident is that one’s body still needs improvement. In fact, it is a “widespread preoccupation”(Brown University; Body Image). This focus on appearance in the American culture is encouraged and with that, comes the effects of negative body image. Influence can come from the artificial environment. What we see, read, watch, and hear tend to have a negative effect on people’s perceived body image. These environmental factors can make men and women feel self-conscious about themselves because they want to conform to what mainstream culture defines as handsome or beautiful.
America is a country that reveres p
Vs. Series: Darth Sidious vs. Darth MalgusWarning: This is all personal opinion and take. Nothing biased on any of the characters that I use here, please leave constructive critisicms, I will really appreciate them. But nevertheless, enjoy.
Darth Sidious, was born in 82 BBY on the planet Naboo as Palpatine, to the aristocrat house of said name. In 65 B.B.Y, he meets Hego Damask, whom he reveals to be the Sith Lord, Darth Plagueis. After Palpatine killed his parents, he began his sith training under the identity of Darth Sidious. For a great deal of time, Sidious and Plagueis began to orchestrate the plan to destroy the Jedi and The Republic. In the mean time, Palpatine was living a double life, as both Senator of the Galactic Republic and as well as a Sith Lord under Palgueis' tutelage. At some point, Sidious adopted the young zabrak named Maul and trained him as a Sith Assassin to complete certain tasks for him. In 32 B.B.Y, Lord Sidious, al
Flourishing DreamsEveryone has a dream. Some might be crazy and far-fetched, while others are a little more down-to-Earth. Despite this, even the wildest of dreams can become a reality and lead to success.
First off, they can lead to successful jobs. Some kids dream about becoming an astronaut or a ballerina. Those dreams can lead them to space or dance-related careers, such as an astrophysicist or a choreographer.
On some occasions, people can actually achieve their dreams. For example, everyone has a dream about traveling somewhere at some point in their life. People can realize that dream by earning enough money to buy plane tickets and travel wherever their heart desires. Dreams can easily turn into goals, and if someone strives towards that goal, it can become a reality.
Sometimes, dreams come out of the blue, and are so random and weird, you won't believe it can even become a goal. However, it actually can. You can turn those kinds of dreams into works of beautiful art or into a suspenseful story.
Stephen King vs. Dean KoontzThe similarities are many and the differences between Stephen King and Dean Koontz are hard to find for some because they both write in the same genre, that being horror and suspense fantasy.
How popular are Stephen King and Dean Koontz? Each has had novels on the New York Times Best Sellers List, King having 28 on the Number One Best Sellers List, some of which are "The Dead Zone," "Misery" and "Dolores Claiborne." Koontz having 10 books in total, on the Number One Sellers List, some of which are "Hideaway," "Intensity" and "Midnight." Some of these books have spent up to 14 weeks or longer on the Number One Best Sellers List.
Both authors started out writing short stories for different men's magazines. Both have had movies based from some of their books; some have been made for either TV, like King's "IT," or Koontz's "Mr. Murder" or a mini-series like King's "Kingdom Hospital," or Koontz's "Frankenstein," or even for a major motion picture like King's "The Secret Window" or Koontz's
