My teacher for Precalculus gave us books for both notes and homework for the whole semester at the beginning of the year. Some students choose to color their cover and some don’t.Read More →
Church ends. Old ladies and grandmas approach you and ask the bone-drilling, nail-biting, apprehension-filled question:
“What are you going to do after you graduate?”
They inquire it with a hopeful, patient smile
All you can do is return a shrug and a few ideas
“What are you going to study next year?”
The last two words hang in the air
As the reality of time startles your soul
Awakens anxiety that trembles bold
My brother and I are big fans of Rhett and Link’s silly songs ranging from “It’s My Belly Button”, to “Christmas Face”, to “Nilla Wafer Top Hat Time”. We had a lot of them memorized and would break out in song when an opportunity occurred. So, he and I made a Christian parody turning “Rub Some Bacon On It” into…Read More →
Think about this through the mindset of a science fiction writer: what if children were an infectious disease? What happens if you’re diagnosed with children? Would it be like cancer, an incurable disease?
When your distastefulness of young kids meets some theatre teenagers with video editing skills, you get this video. Don’t get me wrong…Read More →
While I was a new driver, one of the couple of times I was picking up my friend to hang out, we were talking about my driving.

Sat down in a circle of six of us, being there for you.
Crickets chirped. The stars were so beautiful and visible.
Two girls on both sides of you had their arms on your back,

Reminding you quietly that you’re not alone
We all prayed independently, sat in silence
Staring at you, then at the stars
It was a peaceful moment, yet my anxiety made me worry so bad
I didn’t know if you hit your head or if you had any critical injuries
At the end of each school year, my band director hands out these gag awards to everyone in the band. They tend to be creative and reflect someone’s personality or an inside joke. I post it here because it is technically an award. I received it my sophomore year, May of 2021.
The backstory of this is when I went to…
This is an award I got for being picked and having attended the Conference Honor Band in April 2022. I enjoyed going, learning about and practicing the pieces, and putting on an awesome concert in one day. It was a fun experience!Read More →
I started doodling this in Christian Apologetics, later worked on it at speech tournaments in between rounds as a way of relaxing, then finally got around to finishing it March 9, 2022. I wanted to finish it because I loved how it turned out and it makes me proud of myself. Sadly, I need to get a different kind of tape or something to get the white paper to stick to the black boarder paper; I used double-sided tape, but it didn’t stick well.
Being able to illustrate the feelings I feel well helps me cope with those feelings and get them out in a healthy way.Read More →
