Words To Live By
Accept that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue. Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them. Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it. Drive carefully. It’s not only cars that can be recalled by their maker. Eat a live toad in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you for the...
Calculating Female, Jill Hellyer
poetry365: Her smiling eyes in the glass Glimmer as she undresses But what is so amusing He neither cares nor guesses As, centered on one elbow, He stares at her glowing breast. She calculates, she reckons How fierce his interest. Her luminous eyes mirror What her shrew thoughts assess Before his arms encompass The sweet comptometress.
Finding yourself at a beach with strangers is very melancholy. Much is said in silence in the company of others. Although I was in good company of strangers, an overwhelming sense of lypophrenia was present in my mental state. I’ve always received phone calls from loved one, kept myself busy in school work and classmates, yet I feel as though I am just a face in the crowd. People notice...
It’s one of those days when you just want to wear a high ponytail and a Boyfriend T-Shirt on with ombre leggings. Late afternoon, after a long day at school and an intense day at the gym, it was time to slip into my favorite outfit to date. The weather was absolutely perfect: bright skies and dozens of baby bunnies roaming around the campus, how can you not be happy? The day is near to perfect....
I am always reminded that life is short. People are mortals in this lifetime. Vita Brevis. We start and end our lives. Under these circumstances we put ourselves on, we all succumb to death. A friend of mine, Stephanie, is the most genuinely a happy person every time I see her. She is not only one of the most fit people I’ve met who loves to rock climb and scuba dive, but she is a...
“Stop thinking, and end your problems. What difference between yes and no?...– Laozi (Tao Te Ching) (via justbesplendid)
Inkless is Loveless.
I’ve been lacking in creative writing at the moment. My paper journal has less ink than the amount of people I follow on my online journal, which is really what is disheartening. It is because I’m waiting for an Entelechy? maybe. I just don’t know right now. I wish I could blame it on the endless amount of work I have, or the long hours I put in for work. But it is neither....
wordjournal: noun • a vague feeling of sadness, seemingly without cause
“Begin nothing until you have considered how it is to be finished” I laughed out loud when I read my fortune in my cookie. It summed up what has been happening for the last week. I have’t been exactly thought of ‘finishing’ any kind of homework or reading, and just kind of coasted between work, the little social life and have, and school. I’m not exactly...
I don’t see the appeal. Loud conversations between dozens of people, loud espresso machines screeching in the background & the incessant sounds of generic blues/jazz music they can find. How can anyone really do any work in an environment like this? I’m sitting at a coffee shop off of yates street to find out (and not to mention that internet is down at my place). Expensive...

Daylight saving, Nightlight squander
Daylight saving time, the brainchild of Benjamin Franklin during his 18th century Parisian days, seems to increase the number of productive daylight hours we have, during the seasons when the sun sounds revile early. So, what does it exactly mean for our nighttime? With Spring approaching quickly and Summer right behind it, we are only left wonder what the world is hiding under its dark cloak of...
From Vancouver, with Love
So I’ve been in Victoria for quite a while; haven’t seen my family for over a month and I’m becoming to be entrenched in the Victoria lifestyle and personality. I keep forgetting that there is a cultural difference between people who live in Victoria, and those who live in Vancouver. Although Vancouver and Victoria are only 3 hours away from each other, you can always tell who isn’t from the...
If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel ill I...– Og Madino
COM220: organizational behavior - culture
professor: so tell me, what kind of groups were there in highschool?
professor: uhhhh...I don't know what that is...
student1: you know...emotional.
professor: we used to call them goths
student2: they're the same thing, but they cut themselves.

The House Top
A Night Piece (July, 1863) No sleep. The sultriness pervades the air And binds the brain -a dense oppression, such As tawny tigers feel in matted shades, Vexing their blood and making apt for ravage. Beneath the stars the roofy desert spreads Vacant as Libya. All is hushed near by. Yet fitfully from far breaks a mixed surf Of muffled sound, the atheist roar of riot. Yonder, where parching Sirius...
