Hollywood Loves the Library!

September, 2013

Yes, it is true. Without libraries, the movie industry would be without a wealth of material. Historically, you have great movies such as Pride and Prejudice (written by Jane Austen), the Last of the Mohicans (James Fenimore Cooper), and let’s not forget 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, and my all-time tearjerker, Old Yeller! In recent [...]

A Breeze of Four Years - SAS Puxi Valedictorian Speech

June, 2013
4 comments 9840 views

I feel so fortunate.
If people ask me about high school, I find myself saying that it is a breeze of four years. I tend to gloss over the painful parts, even though it really hasn’t been that easy.
I wonder why though. I had a middle school counselor who was convinced that bad memories are [...]

Envelopes and Thieves Don’t Mix
Racing through the streets, brushing past strangers of various ages and walking speeds, I see the door to the bank getting closer and closer. And finally too, ’cause I need to get this payment in if it’s the last thing that I do. Now, now, I’m not being melodramatic or anything, [...]

Our Grey Lives
One woman walks in.
Two sets of meals are ordered.

Four if you count the sleepwalking girl behind the counter who takes your order in a monotone voice.
Five in the morning.
 
Amelie takes out a faux leather wallet, its sides peeling off flakes of blue skin. [...]

Alone
Time. Scientists say time runs at the same speed all over the world. On that dreadful day, time did not do what it was said to do. At first all came at such a rush, then all of a sudden, reality hit me, overwhelming me with the truth.
It all just happened so fast. Too [...]

“The Human Flaw”
Her breath came in transparent wisps, coiling and prancing in the cold air. Light precipitation had begun to sprinkle down on the sidewalk. Patty Seymour picked up her pace, her high-heels clacking against the concrete, in sync with the rapid heartbeat pulsating through her veins. Gripping her clutch tightly to her side, her [...]

Blending In
Someone was carving my heart with a knife. But the funny thing was that it didn’t hurt as much as it did on my last day of school.  Fresh tears started swelling in my eyes, but I forced them back. I didn’t want anyone in the airport to see me crying like a 3-year-old. [...]

Sacred Miracle of 2012
On 2012, I had the greatest surprise! I nearly lost my greatest treasure! The door opens now……
It was a sunny Saturday morning. My dad was on a business trip, and my mom was at the bank paying money for stuff. I was in the living room by myself on the couch reading [...]
