One Little Misstep On The Stairs Has The Potential To Ruin Your Day

Apparently, I slipped on a step or missed one and fell down on the other bunch of stairs that gave me a bruise that looks like a sweet potato.


So one day, when going down the stairs, I was so clumsy and was paying no attention to each step I took. Apparently, I slipped on a step or missed one and fell down on the other bunch of stairs that gave me a bruise that looks like a sweet potato.

It really hurts. Many people should be more cautious when either going up or down the stairs. Due to this fall, I couldn't bear sitting down because the pain had hurt me so much. Then, when driving or eating my meals, the pain also had stung me. On that day, I could not have a good sitting position. I wasn't comfortable sleeping on my bed because of the pain. So for the one whole week, I have to use a soft pillow or something soft to sit on whatever seat I have. It was so uncomfortable. Just thinking about the pain and the memory of myself falling, I totally regretted of not being careful and I should have paid more attention.

Not only not being able to do the things I want, but I also couldn't help anyone. I felt so useless and felt so bad for my family when they were doing all the work while I sat and waited for them. My twin sister and my mother has to drive me to places and helped prepare the food and clean up for me. It was a terrible feeling of seeing everyone such as my family, worked so hard for me to get healed.

One good thing is that the stairs that I fell on were the texture of a carpet. If

it was wooden, the pain would have been worse.

It takes a while to heal. So the most important thing to learn, especially for me, is to be careful when going on or coming down the stairs or else you will carry this burdensome, sweet potato-like bruise.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
