Almost a Big Kid

As I'm nearing closer to my move-in date to Iowa City, (August 19th, if anyone is interested) I've come to the realization that this summer has gone by insanely fast. As if this isn't the case every year, anyway, but here we are--two, going on almost three months after graduation and it still feels like the world has set us in place right here, like our lives will just stop and wait for us to catch up to what it's supposed to feel like when you're an "adult."

Aurora Borealis

It is currently 2am, and I can't help but write down what I saw in the sky not even an hour or so ago.

Life-Is-Too-Fast Update

Hi to anyone who reads these posts--I know it's been a month and three days since I last posted something substantial. (I'm sure you were all counting, right?) Anyway, I just want to say quick that if you are one of the people who clicks on this link and delves into my "life" via poetry and writing and rambling, then thank you so much. You actually have no idea how much it means that I have people reading this at all.

This is my final big story for my independent study. I've been working on it for the last two weeks. Let me know what you think!

This is a story Mrs. Marincovich started and I had to finish. :)

The Sky

I applied for a scholarship this past fall, but I unfortunately did not win. I thought I could post my essay on here, anyway--I really enjoyed writing this piece.

The essay question was "Why is life more interesting when you are happy?"

Hide and Seek

This is a piece I wrote for my independent study--I had to pick a news article and then turn it into a poem. I picked one article that had to deal with a little boy going missing in the Missouri River. It's a little morbid compared to what I usually write.
