Olinda

Vivified Cities - Olinda

Olinda is old. Theoretically, there was a time when it did not exist, but privately many people, particularly the residents themselves, doubt that such a time existed. Always there, decaying. The houses crumble, the streets and sidewalks crack, the trees that were planted in a feeble beautification initiative wither in the hard-packed soil. It is not possible to find a “border” for at the edges Olinda fades to nothing.

Is the ban on nirbhaya bbc documentary justified?

Hi Nirbhaya. How are you? Doing fine? Please Nirbhaya, after reading this article, do leave a comment too, about your opinion, as we respect your opinion too Nirbhaya.

Confused? Why i am calling you Nirbhaya? Because, may be next time, you can be the next another Nirbhaya.

I am sorry, for saying this. May God will always bless you and you will be safe always. But what for that girl, should I pray now? What should i pray for the...

The 99

After another night of partying, smoking and drinking, I stumbled home disoriented and confused. I snuck into my house through the back door as quietly as possible, cautious not to wake my grandparents. When I finally made it to my room, I plopped on my bed and everything went dark, until a stern voice cut through the silence, bringing me back to into the light. 

"Where were you?" My grandpa said while sitting in my desk chair across my room.

"Huh?" I...

The Sophia Three

Three Things That Very Few People Know About Me:

1. Eating candycorn and jellybeans makes me barf.

2. I have a memory of when I was two months old: that I wake up in my crib and see all my stuffed giraffes in the corner, far away from me. I crawl/scoot towards them, and finally, reach them.

3. I am basically the best cook/baker in my entire family. Yes, including aunts, uncles, and so on.

In My World

In my world, I am special. I am important. I am whatever I desire for myself to be and I am that. In my world, everything falls to my command and obeys my every order. I am Queen of Think, Empress of Imagine. The world--my world--is mine and mine only.

I am not vain. I am not selfish. It's my world and in my world, my world of imagination and creation and possibility...there I belong.

Prologue to "Nalani"

A tan-skinned girl ran her hand over her curly, light brown hair. She tip-toed quietly down the sandy beach with a smile on her lips. She looked along the beach for a smooth place to lay out her blanket. She carefully stepped around coarse patches of grass, carefull to make sure they didn’t jab her bare feet. The girl laid back and closed her eyes, listening contently to the sound of water lapping against the shore and crickets chirping.

Crimson Petals

She was up in the tree. Her face pressed up against the cool stone bark, her shoulders slumped with exhaustion, and her legs dangling from the tree limb's surface, the girl sat there. Her head throbbed with clear, cutting-stone pain that havened around her forhead and into her eyes, but also reached down into the muscles of her spine and shoulders. Everything hurt.

The girl closed her red eyes, hoping to find some sort of release from the pain that...

Desert Colors

The colors on the mountain...Ayla's mind wandered as she watched the landscape. They had been driving for more than six and a half hours now and she was amazed at the difference in their surroundings since they left. The gray sky, the tall buildings, and the loud traffic of the city were now replaced with a fresh, blue sky, colorful sloping hills that were dotted with sheep and cattel of Utah. All the plant life here, although they looked a little...

In Threes Is Me

Three adjectives I would use to describe myself:

1. Shy

2. Crazy(a good crazy, though)

3. Random

 

Three questions that I have:

1. Why are things the way they are?

2. What am I supposed to write?

3. Why can't I be myself?

 

Three things very few people know about me:

1. I have a terrible memory

2. I L-O-V-E ice cream

3. I'm a talker. Get me to talk and I'll ramble on and on

Me in Threes

Three quirks or idiosyncrasies:

  • I always have a specific arrangement for where my pillows sit on my bed.
  • I absolutely am in LOVE (well, very close to being obsessed) with looking up pictures of cat memes (especially fat cats).
  • When I'm happy (or any mood for that matter), I love to binge on cookie dough ice cream.

Three adjectives your peers would use to describe you:

  • Hyper
  • Funny
  • Plain interesting

Three adjectives your family would use:

  • Lazy
  • Funny in every way
  • Overall a strange kid

Three adjectives...
