My Friend Jack

A piece inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas

My Friend Jack

Have you met my friend Jack?

He's tall man with a skeleton grin.

Used to be a scarecrow that was deadly thin.

Known for spreading screams all through the night.

Never once have I not seen that smile amongst the fright.

Gentle with children always he is,

Giving nothing more than a boo and a grin.

But, he was not always content.

Spending many nights in the graveyard as he was left to lament.

It took ruining a holiday for a world to discover

that his holiday is just as special as any other.

He is still the King of Pumpkins and fright,

With his dear wife Sally always at his side.

Zero always appears with his nose ever so bright,

as he takes over the world with terror and fright.

If you see my friend Jack,

tell him I said hi.

He's been on my nice list for years now

and he truly is a great guy.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
