  • Remember

    I knew who Taylor was before we were introduced.  Or I guess I should say re-introduced.  I had sat behind him in eighth grade algebra and I used to have the biggest crush on him.  For years.  He was dating Melinda who was the most popular girl in our grade.  And they dated on and off for years.  I never had any real problems with Melinda,…

  • Wild Women

    A tribe of wild women.  These are the women I want to send my life with.  Wild women.  Women who are not afraid and women who live their life.  I want to be with women who wear their clothes loudly and wear purple when they want.  The risk takers.  The dreamers.  The trouble makers.  No…

  • Don’t Fall

    As I looked at the sidewalk, I wondered how I had even gotten myself into this position.  I was fifty floors up, clinging onto my apartment building for dear life.  Just this morning, I was sitting at my office desk, trying to plan out when I could go on my next vacation.  Now I wasn’t even sure if I…

  • Snow

    The first time I saw snow I thought I was going to faint.  Jessica had convinced me to come to New Mexico for Spring Break and I had been very skeptical.  I usually head to the beach for vacations.  I needed the sun, the water and the heat.  Landry and I had taken our last vacation together to Mexico…

  • Our Way Out

    My brother and I were always dreaming up stories of how we were going to get out of the small town we lived in.  We often got into trouble as we were always searching for new ways to get out of town other than by Main Street.  Escaping down the only street in town seemed a little…

  • Grand Piano

    Nine months ago I finally got up the courage to buy a grand piano for my living room.  I had written songs when I was younger and was getting the urge to start writing music again.  I was pretty sure I was at the beginning of a mid-life crisis.  It was one of the perks of living alone and owning my own house –…

  • The Accident

    “I can’t do it.  I can’t do it.  I can’t do it.”  I paced back and forth in my bedroom trying to make a decision.  Mackenzie was my best friend, but what could I do?  I was either going to have to make sure I can go forward with my life or she can go forward with hers.  I’m not…

  • Decisions

    I’ve never been a very decisive person.  Ever.  I can’t make up my mind what my favorite food is, where I want to eat when I go out and especially on what I’m going to do when I go on vacation.  I tell my friends I don’t really care what we do and that I…

  • My secret

    “I’m pregnant,” I whispered to my sister.  “Ryan doesn’t know.  Neither do mom or dad.”  Sarah kept on snoring lightly.  I realized she had fallen asleep before I could confess the secret I had been keeping for several weeks.  Even though she hadn’t heard me, I realized I already felt better.  So I kept whispering to her about how I felt…

  • Scandal

    I knew what I had to do to make sure my brother didn’t graduate.  Because if he did graduate, I knew his life would be ruined.  He had this girlfriend who was dead set on convincing him that she was the one he needed to marry.  But she would not marry him if he did not…
