ThoughtsIf the tram wasn't so full of people, Alecia would have dozed off at the fifteen minute mark. Or maybe drown out the seemingly endless stream of conversations inside the tram but of course she had to have forgotten her earphones back at base this morning. She made a mental note to buy an extra pair the next time she could venture to the marketplace.Thoughts by hyoris
Until then, she had to deal with the constant talking and close proximity of the other travelers. She rubbed her hand over her face and threaded her fingers through her brown hair. The head on her shoulder shifted and the man grunted.
She sighed as she hung her head. How Royan was able to fall asleep just about anywhere sounded like a grand treasure rather than a nuisance today.
"You're breathing too hard."
Royan blinked and adjusted to his surroundings. He rolled his shoulders to relieve the tightness of his muscles.
"I'm trying to get my daily nap in and here you are, screwing my sleep cycle." He laid his head back on Alecia's shoulder.
After Today Large towers were built in order to sustain the population that was starting to explode on the surface world. When people started to move to start a new life in the towers, some jobs had to be remade in order to better serve the now vertical houses that people now live in. The first six floors of the seven towers across the world are the main Housing Districts; with marketplaces lining the main walkways from the elevator to the other side of each of the six tiers to the seven floors of each apartment complex within each tower. With the new way of living, one of the main concerns was how people were going to get their mail. Letters and packages weren’t going to fly into people’s mailboxes. With time, people noticed that the buildings were close enough to climb in between them. With practice and a little modification to the buildings, people were bounding throughout the alleyways, grasping onto pegs and poles with letters in their hands and packages on theAfter Today by hyoris

He reached for a square shaped device on the small table he set up on top of the roof of ACE Towers and twirled it in his hands. Walking over to the railing that circled the roof, he gazed at the various lights that kept the city shining. He looked up to the metal dome that surrounded the city but also blocked any kind of natural light from the outside world and exhaled sharply. He turned around and leaned this back to the railing and slid down until he sat on the gravel covered roof. The pitter patter of the rain continuously beat on the metal above him. He turned on the device in his hand and a holographic sphere buzzed to life. Dais turned it around and stared at a pair of dots next to each other and poked at them twice, doubling the size of the hologram. He glanced at his watch.
He closed his eyes and banged his head on the railing several times.
Time could not move any slower.

Remember kindergarten? I do. You were a jerk. And not even a popular jerk. You were the type of jerk who wanted to be one of the popular jerks, but hated them at the same time, so you stuck with making fun of the brainiacs because you were too afraid to make fun of the popular kids. I was a brainiac.
But, as they say, opposites attract, and one Wednesday during the summer, the one we both spent at camp, I had finally had enough of you being a big asshole and made a bet that I could climb to Sadie Point, the highest peak of our hiking trail, before you could.
You started running before I even said go. Asshole.
But I'm glad. I'm glad you went with me, because that's how I got to know youfor more than your assholeness. We stank of sweat and grass when we reached the topI think I beat you, I'm pretty sure I didbut I w

Of Getting An Art Major
A heated argument broke out in my house this afternoon.
I live in a rental situation, renting a large room (with my own bathroom and workspace, real nice setup) in a Filipino household. Love my landlord, get along great with the other housemates, but to emphasize the 'Filipino' aspect of the living situation, there's a lot of family taking residence here. And with family, with teenage offspring, with high standards and expectations from the older immigrant generation speaking upon the younger American-born kin, tension is inevitable.
The daughter of one of the housemates is loo
I recently had to change both lenses of my glasses frame because of two reasons. First, because my left eye got worse so they had to replace that. Second, because there was a new line of Transitions and the one I was currently using had a lighter tint than the new ones. So, if I didn't, it'd look funny.|
So, in my head, I'd look like a pirate.
I'm an adult!
