An Introduction

When I was 12, I was in a house explosion. I spent seventeen days in the hospital my first go-round. My first heart surgery, skin grafts, a minor brain bleed, and many broken bits. Is it all an illusion?

There’s this movie “The Truman Show” starring Jim Carrey, where everyone’s an actor but Truman. His entire life has been…

I used to dream. Lately I don’t remember what about though.

I think that may be part of adulthood, losing your dreams. You get glimpses of what they once were, but they’re never quite the same. That anomaly of how when you wake up, you practically forget about the main events right away, but in a grander scale. You even lose the theme.

I don’t mean this in a dark way. I just mean it in a realistic one. Dreams die. Mutate. Change. You adapt.

Those dreams are replaced with goals. Things you can realistically achieve. …

Aliens are real. So is God. And we’re all doomed.

Those are the words that scream inside my head constantly these days. Because nothing makes sense to me anymore. Everything is possible, and that’s mildly terrifying, yet exhilarating. Literally.

An overused word with the perfect translation. This. How do you reference something in time, space, a complexity? This. That’s all I feel anymore. Because once your tapped into your subconscious this is all that can be on your mind.

This is everything right with the world.

This is everything wrong with the world.

This contains every ounce of truth within…

Lines foggy, night not gray. Grey.
Gray. Grr. Ey.

Manic. The state.
No. Panic. Not a disco.

Jean was one of the Xmen.
So was rogue. Rogue steals powers.

Every day fades. Dark, dark, darker.
All is a matter of working hours and rise and grind.

Creativity seeps, seaps. Seaps? No seeps. No seeds?

Seed shortage, not yet.

Whens soon?
Everything’s soon.

Because time seeps.
Seeps deep into. I. AI.

Decision trees, no, that’s not important.

Keep it.

The concept.

Due. Process.


Words flow deeps in…

There isn’t a lot that can be done once you’ve quit something. That’s just plain fact. The relationship between what’s possible and reality really depends on your current situation and your mental framework. One of those circumstances depends on the process of going through something and then iterating on the things that need to be changed — basically, an entire circle of cause and effect.

That’s life. Everything in life is malleable at the end of the day; it’s just a matter of where exactly you…

One of the most confusing things about working with computer applications is the back-end. Both language possibilities I use are super complicated, and to be quite honest, I don’t understand NoSQL or SQL that well. When I got into software, I thought the most challenging aspect was working with JavaScript. My first coding boot camp was only front-end development; I do not have nearly as much experience working with the back-end as I do the front. I thought the most exciting thing you could do with coding was having random quotes from an array of options appear on your page…

You never really know what moments are going to change your life. Sometimes things happen around you, and your physical response is to retract into yourself. A biological response you can’t control but have to learn to work through. Whether they’d like to admit it or not, no one’s life is perfect.

Life is a learning experience — a constant one. The amount of effort you output has a direct effect on the path you face going forward. Now, that’s not to diminish the fact that some of us face environments daily that are rawer than others. …

Chapter Two: Part A

As the lights in the room balanced out, the contrast putting everything into place, I could see a circle of mirrors standing upright in the center of the room. An actual waterfall on the far left-hand side of the room streaming into an unknown pool below.

The sheer amount of water must be the only reason you could hear the sound because looking over the edge. We were seemingly floating in mid-air.

Much like the mount was sustained with crystals, the plateau had plenty as well; giving off their warm white glow further illuminated by a crystal chandelier hanging from…

“It is the way of weakened minds to see everything through a black cloud. The soul forms its own horizons; your soul is darkened, and consequently the sky of the future appears stormy and unpromising”

– Alexandre Dumas

Have you ever thought about the way you see the world? The way that all of the little things that have happened to you create this lens through that you see everything through. The way you interact with people to the way you brush your teeth. Every little action you take is influenced by something whether you realize it or not.
