We aren't that much different

Most People will go through life with just caring about their job. They never stop and notice the things around them.
Those kind of people are lame and only care about "perfect grades" "perfect life, perfect job, Perfect everything"
Everything they do has to be perfect or they go back and fix it. 
People who like creatively live a much better life.
Most days I see the world as a movie, other times I see the world as a song.
I see a need for almost everything. I despise the word perfect and being perfect. 

Mirror

August 5, 2014 - 4:28pm -- Anonymous
You can knock me down.
Shun me. Drown me. 
Try to keep me hidden.
You think I'm perfect.
That I have nothing to hide.
 
But you don't see the truth.
You see what I've done,
Not what I've been through.
You see cuts,
But not scars.
If you think I'm perfect,
Then I know you're wrong.
Because I am a shattered mirror,
Put me back together, and you'll still see the cracks.
 
Mirrors show you the truth.

Steve was a normal guy. But when Lora the new kid at school moves in next door, Steve starts feeling things he never ever felt. Concern, Love, Joy, and sadness. All for just Lora. Steve wants to learn more about Lora. But what he finds is not what he wants or expected. SHE IS A WITCH!!!!!! Despite what Steve learned he is still falling for Lora. Lora loves him and they live happily ever after (not really).

 

PLEASE COMMENT ON THIS STORY!!!!!!!

Painting On The Wall

Looking at the room in front of me, I am reminded of my lonely life. I've spent nearly ten years nailed to a wall, overlooking a living room. And it wasn't a big living room either. The furniture is crowded together, and there aren't that many to begin with. There's only a sofa in the corner, collecting dust, a small television a few feet in front of the sofa, and a plant in the corner. They are so close together, that, when that plump human with the yellow hair walks in, he has to turn sideways to get across the room.

New school, new life. Exciting, right? People see this as a new beginning, a fresh start.

                Sorry, I hate it! No matter what everybody says to reassure me, I can't stand it!

                My parents decide to travel as their career. My sister and I were born in Houston. Ever since I turned two (I'm the oldest) we've moved to San Diego, Raleigh, Columbus, Denver, Miami and back to Denver.

Here I am talking to you not knowing who or what you are; not knowing what you look like, only knowing the darkness around me, the sounds of our voices and that I can only hear you in my mind. It begs the question: am I speaking or can you hear my thoughts?

If you want to know what is going on, here is the story.

This is the first chapter. If you want to see the rest, follow the link to my FictionPress account to read it. I'm still working on it, but I'll update every week. I expect it to be pretty long, maybe 15 or 20 chapters. So. Here goes.

 

I glanced down at the new report on my desk. I could already tell that it wasn't nearly as much information as I usually got, but I wasn't complaining. It had been too long since I had seen a task from the Inhibeo.

Teen Advisory Board (TAB)What's a Teen Advisory Board?

A Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of teens who meet regularly to give librarians guidance about better serving teens and Library program ideas for our community. Each meeting is different depending on the goals of the TAB. There are usually snacks and it is always fun!

TAB members attend meetings and programs, and are responsible library users. They help promote participation in Library programs, and respect the tastes, privacy, and opinions of others. They are committed to making their community more enjoyable for everyone. And it looks great on your college application and resume!

Interested? Check out the Teen Advisory Boards at DPL and get involved!

Saved My life, How can I thank you?

Chapter 1: What Happened?

Everybody looks alright on the outside but if you were to look inside, They Wouldn't be.

Everybody thinks that if they put a fake smile on, No one will notice. But I do, I see right through them.

My name is Dani and this is my veiw on life.

 

A couple of years ago in december I was trying to find myself in this great big world.

I was so lost that I would do anything just to feel loved but That all changed last week.

You see I was just walking along the road when I saw a bright light.

Chapter 1

Traveling

"Hurry up Benjamin". "I'm not a robot Clair". "You should be".

What's your identity. An important message.

January 1, 2014 - 7:46pm -- ard916

This sounds like something from a movie.  Sounds like a mystery plot.  It's neither of these things, but rather a VERY important message that I feel I have a burden to share with all of you.

How do you define your worth.  Do you call yourself a runner, a speaker, a cheerleader, a swimmer, an author, artist, magician, or a nothing.

October 26, 2013 - 4:55pm -- Laura

The winners were:

1.  Sophie, The life in the library

2.  Ethan, Software make hardware happen

3. Mo, Addiction

Honorable mentions, affirming nods, and solid pats on the back go to Rhylie and Thane (though Thane is staff, so...)
