My Sims Stories - The Farmer Family Legacy

Bella heard commotion in the adjoining bedroom in the middle of the night. “Rog,” she said, poking at him, “Rog!” He rolled over and opened one eye. “I think Charlotte’s in labor.” “How in the world could you possibly know that?” he groaned and rolled over. “Go back to sleep.” “Because I heard them talking.

Shifting Lines

The day after I gave the other Marauders the notebook we hid out in one of the secret corridors, one of the ones we were sure nobody else knew about. We threw a blanket down on the stone floor and I used a spell to make it fluffier, comfier. Once we were all seated, I […]

The Freewheeling Freelancer

Joe could not go home, not if the Carabinieri were looking for him. He knew it was time to check in with Agent Redwood and to get off the streets. He got off the bus at Piazza Barberini. The Embassy was just up the Via Veneto.

Via kotte.org, some of New York’s iconic, modernist structures placed in new surroundings… On that note, Land Art is often about removing the monetary value, commodification and fungibility of a piece of art and making something big enough, weird enough, useless enough; maybe making a beautiful/ugly enough imitation of Nature or man’s design within Nature.

Unfortunate Trivializations

This article was originally posted on Medium I am a Physiotherapist. Almost every person I see in clinic is in pain, and most already have an idea about what has caused their pain. If they are old enough, they might say ‘overuse’, or ‘wear and tear’; if they are younger, they might say ‘bad posture’ […]

Kivutar's Klassics

Zhang He had thirty thousand redshirts in three camps, and he took half of them from each camp to go attack Zhang Fei. You can’t move fifteen thousand men and keep it hidden, even from Zhang Fei. “Fuck,” said Zhang Fei. “Lei Tong, any ideas?” “Easy-peasy,” said Lei Tong. “You go out and fight, I […]

Seeds of White Zinnia

You’ve all seen the memes by now, and chances are even if you aren’t a nurse your feed is full of nurses ON FIRE.

Now, I'm Just Amused.

Did you consider any other career? How did you choose? Like everyone else, I guess, I daydreamed and fantasized all through my youth about what “career” might await me, but in real life, it was all pretty much serendipity that led me to where I am today. When I was at St. Augustine’s, I was […]

Feet Cry Mercy

In middle school, I would often get the most perplexing response to asking a classmate for gum: “It’s my last piece.” “But” I thought, “it wasn’t your only piece. And someone has to eat it.” Besides, they had the second to last piece in their mouth as we spoke. Why be a scrooge with the […]
