Hi, and welcome to my blog-turned-place where I post my writing. This is my outlet to put them up, which was radically different from the blog that this started out as. I hope you'll have a good time reading my blog/place where I post some poetry and some short stories. I try to cover a variety of topics in these works of mine, so I hope any readers will enjoy it. I'm not an English major by any stretch, but I enjoy writing. Critique would be nice for my writing, cause lord knows I could work on it. Enjoy!

Non-writing thought

So, lately I've been thinking of writing more about my travels, along the vein of 501 Places and those type of travel blogs. The grand question here is if anybody would want to see them posted here or if I should create an entirely new blog/web page for that. In an ideal world, I hope to try and start my own travel blog in the futile attempt to have it gain renown, so I'm going to be trying to do something grander if all possible. And to end this little post, if anybody that so as to happen to be reading this, would you mind giving me feedback here? It'd be highly appreciated for sure.

Study Abroad, a poem

Oh the places you can go, the places you dream of.
Possibilities abound!
You have the choice-to go somewhere exotic or somewhere comfortable.
Do you want to be speaking English or to learn other exotic languages?
It’s your call, and you can’t go wrong.
From North America to South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, or Australia,
alluring cultures await your imminent arrival.

All of these places are splendid,
And no matter what, we’ll have a great time.
From all of the pictures we’ll take of the exquisite sights we’ll be seeing,
To the new friends, in new locales, we’ll soon be meeting,
We will be rewarded with the rich memories.
But just remember,
                We’re more than students. We are ambassadors as well.
Ambassadors to our schools and countries, serving as the flagbearers.
Flagbearers at the Olympics of culture, language, and humanity.
More importantly though, cultural ambassadors.
For we represent our respective countries when in others.
                We need to uphold the standards thrust upon our shoulders.
We help other places learn what it’s like back home, and learn ourselves.
By learning, we are able to enjoy life and its tangy spices.
And that is why we students board the planes to Silk Roads of awareness.

Wishful Thinking

This was once again co-written with a friend, again via text. Hope you enjoy it, in all of its zaniness.

A butterfly's wings are not made of butter.
Like a dragonfly isn't really a dragon.
But wouldn't it be such a curious sight,
to see a buttered fly and a fire breathing insect,
buttering dragonfly-fired toast! If only we could see this in supermarkets!
And our latest celebrities would merely have wings!
And we could fly to where we want to,
on wings of fire and fat.
And we will enjoy this immensely,
As we race through the burnt Autumn skies!
