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.

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
Haunted Dreams Hauntshadow padded into the warriors den. He curled up in his new nest and lay his tail over his muzzle. It took him awhile to fall asleep due to his excitement from becoming a warrior, but eventually he did. When he opened his eyes again he was in the Dark Forest. A few heartbeats later, a cat came forward. It was his uncle, Jaywing.
The gray Dark Forest warrior smiled and said, "I saw your ceremony. Congratulations, Hauntshadow."
Hauntshadow dipped his head and stepped forward a bit, "Thank you. What are we doing tonight?"
Jaywing grinned, "I have an important task for you."
The black tom held his head high. Whatever this task was he would do it with pride to show his loyalty to the Dark Forest. His eyes glistening, Hauntshadow asked, "What do I have to do?"
Jaywing started circling around him, "First you must answer this question. What do you think the biggest problem is that the clans face?"
There were a lot of problems the clans had faced.

UntitledOkay, since people have wondered why I've not posted some of my writing here, the reason is, my work mostly involves arcane historical & philosophical subjects that I felt would not be of that much interest to most readers on this site. But, here's an example for you. The beginning of an essay I've been working on concerning the subject of "Atlantis". Hope you find it interesting...

George T. Young
Simply, this little essay is some wonderings, if you will, resulting from an informal but earnest attempt to look at things re “Atlantis” that are– as they are.
Okay, and just what do I think these are? Well, as far as I can see, after discounting all the fiction and nonsense written about this subject, it boils down to three valid groups of factors:
1. The source material, of course, which is a mixed bag of still extant ancient writings by various (predominantly Classical era) chroniclers and scholars; most famously,
Wild, Free, Dying Picture an open range; where there are bushes of green, wildflowers of purple and yellow. Picture the tracks of animals; perhaps rabbits, deer, coyotes, and finally hoofprints. In earlier times, these hoofprints belonged primarily to horses, but the reality of the present is that the hoofprints of history are being eradicated. The reason for this being: BLM. BLM, or the Bureau of Land Management, has been “preserving” wild horses and burros for some time now. Their efforts have been failures on many different levels; therefore, BLM should leave mustangs and burros alone, and stop the annihilation of our great companions.
On the official website of the BLM, there is a webpage dedicated to the Wild Horse and Burro Program. This includes a section which contains a list of “myths.” One of the myths states, that wild horses will limit their pop
TV Reviews - Teen Titans GO!
Teen Titans Go
If there's one thing I learned is that the word “Spinoff” is a double edged sword. On one hand it can be a treat to the fans of original piggy backing off an already successful product. Or it can be a blatant cash in job for series that's been off the air for a while and is SO BAD that it has the fans clamoring for DVDs and digital re-releases of the original. Just guess what camp Teen Titans GO! Is in......?
Characters – Full stop I have to dwell on how much they fuck up Cyborg and Beast Boy. In the original Cyborg was the techie trying to keep the tower standing, fixing equipment, and overall just keeping everything in ship shape. He's also a personal favorite character because he's a half man half machine trying to sort out a world he feels he can't fit into. Beast Boy was a likable character who had his own episodes where he'd take responsibility. The comic relief that is actually more helpful than annoying. We get.....barely any of that in th

The Trickster Archetype in Ancient Mythologies and Today
Loki, Coyote, Raven, Puck, Bugs Bunny. Names we know well and names that denote trickery and cunning. These ideas are all of the Trickster Archetype, beings who are the ultimate Slytherin idols. But how did they come about and why?
The first, and perhaps most important, thing to know is that every pantheon, from every civilization has at least one trickster deity. From the Inuit to the Japanese, they all have a Trickster or two in their myths and legends. But what is a trickster deity?
A trickster deity, as defined by mythologists and folklorists, is a deity who often breaks the laws of their universe, either maliciously or for simple amusement. They will work to subvert the wills of the gods or the Fates t
The Advanced Ancient Human TheoryThis is a combination of everything that was said in this forum post: forum.deviantart.com/devart/ge…
You see all these theories about how these gigantic monuments (pyramids, Moai statues, Stonehenge, etc.) were built by prehistoric humans, so what if ancient humans actually had very advanced technology (maybe from extraterrestrials, or by their own doing), but something happened that erased all of those advancements, knocking humans back technologically and scientifically? Cavemen may have had nuclear technology and had a war which explains the ice ages (nuclear winter), massive extinctions, and the huge crater in Yucatan. Also, it may be a process that repeats, society constantly destroying and rebuilding itself.
There is plenty of research that could support that in one way or another. When you think about it, humanity could've been around ages longer than any scientist thinks. We humans build up our society in the same general path, with advancements to science, medicine, tec
Depression Awareness Speech: HELP ME OUT!PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION FOR MORE INFORMATION! THANK YOU!
You know what I want to do in this room today? I want to stop the stigma associated with depression. Stigma is defined as a mark of disgrace associated with a particular circumstance, quality, or person. Shame.Humiliation. Dishonor. Depression isn’t something anyone should be ashamed of having. It’s not like everyone who’s affected can control it; it’s a genetic disorder, as well as something that can be acquired over time. Depression, while it isn’t very fun, shouldn’t be categorized as a disgusting attribute to an otherwise functional being in society. Do you know what that is called? Emotional Abuse. While some people are capable of blowing it off, it’s not the same case for the others.
Depression in teens is a common topic you hear about nowadays, but many people don’t truly realize what depression is. The stereotype depicts this severe mental disorder as a cheap excuse to j
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
