Hi, anyone who’s reading this! Well, for starters, I LOVE cats. That’s the most common fact about me. I’m an avid reader, I like listening to music, and I like to joke. A LOT. Anyway, thanks for stopping by!!

Message from Writer

This is one of my favorite quotes. It’s by Steve Jobs:

HERE’S TO THE CRAZY ONES.
THE MISFITS. THE REBELS. THE TROUBLEMAKERS.
THE ROUND PEGS IN THE SQUARE HOLES.
THE ONES WHO SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY.
THEY’RE NOT FOND OF RULES.
AND THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THE STATUS QUO.
YOU CAN QUOTE THEM, DISAGREE WITH THEM,
DISBELIEVE THEM, GLORIFY OR VILIFY THEM.
ABOUT THE ONLY THING YOU CAN’T DO, IS IGNORE THEM
BECAUSE THEY CHANGE THINGS.
THEY INVENT. THEY IMAGINE. THEY HEAL.
THEY EXPLORE. THEY CREATE. THEY INSPIRE.
THEY PUSH THE HUMAN RACE FORWARD.
MAYBE THEY HAVE TO BE CRAZY.
BECAUSE THE ONES WHO ARE CRAZY ENOUGH
TO THINK THAT THEY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD,
ARE THE ONES WHO DO.

Peace is Such a Delicate Thing

April 24, 2020

We came to pursue peace.  We’d planned for weeks and weeks, trying not to be offensive, trying not to cause any tension.  We came in and were polite, tried viewing it from their perspective.  But, that’s the thing about being too perfect.  It doesn’t work out.  Because, I think, as I stand there after the long, hard battle, that we might have just started a war. . .

    This could be taken so many different ways. It could be a metaphor between some friends or maybe a couple, or it could be a literal war. The title is also super effective! Great job

    Yes, it's sad because that's literally what's happened. I am actually sobbing right now. Oh, Juni (nickname), it hurts so badly.

    The book is not as serious as this

    Also, I probably should have put this in the footnotes, this is kind of a thing for my book series that I’m actually writing, so that’s why I put it as a ‘flash fiction’
