Short Story- Project Life

Hey guys! This is a little different for me, and a bit vulnerable as well. I love writing, especially pieces of fiction. I am taking a Creative Writing class right now, and our final project needs to be a collection of pieces, of varying genres.

No. I don’t stand with women.

This is something I have been trying to piece together for the past few weeks, since the Kavanaugh trial began. I know, that with this post, I should expect some criticism and perhaps hate, but I need to speak my truth.

Thank goodness, for goodness.

I was absentminded, and lost my wallet. Though losing a wallet in and of itself is more of a pain in the butt than anything, I lost mine not even twenty-four hours after returning home from a study abroad trip.  My driver's license, AAA travel card, student ID, and several souvenirs (not to mention a…Read more Thank goodness, for goodness.
