a spooky tale (or, things that happen after midnight that wouldn't happen during the day)

I was up late writing in the kitchen because I couldn't sleep. It was a long day, a long weekend, and I had a lot on my mind. I looked lazily out the window to my left...

and froze in terror!

I gasped, and jerked my eyes away from the figure staring at me from outside the window.

Then, summoning all my courage, I turned back to examine the figure more closely...

And you know what? It was my own reflection.

Heaven help me.
I must be a wreck.

getting old

I will only be 22 for a couple more hours. My friend says that it's my last day being young.

Bring on the old years! ha ha

Getting old is what we do
Our joints get stiff
Our bones get brittle
Our brains get full and then they get empty
Our families grow, or do they shrink?
Our clothes get worn and out of style
But getting old is what we do
So I will do it
Will you do it too?

But let's do it together
'Cause it's totally hip.

Sometimes I feel like being philosophical and figuring out questions. Other times I want to throw it all out the window.

Sometimes I feel proud of what I have produced. Other times I want to burn it.
