Cosmic Caravan.

Much like the constellations branded in the pit of the night sky, his tears sparkle under the dimmed light of the yellowed light-post. His skin shimmers with each minuscule movement. It looks like molten gold hardened around the flesh of his body. His face is set in stone, cold and hard in contrast to the […]

Feeling the Sun From Both Sides

We ate dinner in the living room and we’re all watching the movie Elf – it feels so fun and Christmassy. It was our wedding anniversary yesterday – it’s been seventeen years since we got married! Just saying that makes me want to laugh, because it sounds so crazy…how can it possibly have been so […]

Word Count: 1656 *Based on a real experience *Jagiya: Korean for “Babe” ──────⊹⊱✫⊰⊹────── I heard a knock on the door and hurried to answer it, knowing exactly who it would be. I smiled as I took in the sight of Hyun. His platinum blonde hair was parted down the middle, some of his bangs falling […]

My online diary

Hey everyone! One of the biggest things on my mind lately has been school: mid year exams, (which are still more than a few months away), getting through all my homework and making sure I’m still on track with all things class-related. Of course, there’s a complex series of personal relationships which have also been […]

My hypothetical children have impeccable manners, always do as they’re told, and sleep a solid eight hours every night. They get me up for a cooked breakfast and after I’ve disciplined them, they thank me for the salutary influence I have on their young lives. They are good, but there’s still room for improvement. I […]

I have never met this guy in real life and yet I was anticipating excitement and more. The mobile phone rang sharp at 6 in the morning, and expectedly, it was Gabriel. “Good morning,” said the voice from the other side. I reciprocated, as I hurriedly finished my breakfast at the unearthly hour. He confirmed […]

Story Leafer

I re-discovered the city on the plastic-littered, faintly stinking steps of Manjhi Ghat. Here at the edge, the water is a sickly green with an ugly mass of weeds floating near the surface, sharp, long fish swimming in circles and black ducks shaking their wet feathers. At dawn, pot-bellied men have come to bathe near […]

Preschool Shenanigans

Teaching children comes with a lot of pressure, the pressure of keeping up with other preschools, having the right kind of curriculum, talking with the parents. Making sure everyone is engaged and learning.  I love the fact that I do something that is going to effect a child in a positive way for the rest […]

Nikki Haase: Author/Writer

Snow and Fire             Sue, Ryan, Shawn, and I were the only ones awake. The rest of the house was still sleeping soundly when we found ourselves in the kitchen, stumbling around with half-open eyes scrounging for food like starving animals. “I’m going outside to train.” Sue held a granola bar in her hand and […]

The snake presence has led to a decrease in tree tending by staff and placed a dampener on the yuletide spirit. The first thing to address is here is that the snakes were not necessarily identified by an expert […]
