Grant was never popular during his high school years. So he should have been extremely suspicious near the end of his senior year when he was invited to a party by one of the beautiful people. But he was too excited to turn down the invitation. It all seemed innocent enough. Becky had approached him … Continue reading Popular

The Facebook Friendzone

It's a funny thing, discovering that you're no longer connected to someone through social media. Did I post something they didn't agree with? Was I not posting enough to be worth their time? Was I posting too much and it just got obnoxious? So many thoughts run through my anxious mind over something so trivial … Continue reading The Facebook Friendzone

Picking Your Moment

The world around him seemed to slow to a crawl as Parker Davis made his way through the crowd. This is my moment, he thought. He was there. She was there. Everything was falling into place.

He could have gone for friendliest or class clown, but those awards seemed too obvious. He … Continue reading Operation

Present

“Present!” yelled Kimberly, just loud enough for her elderly home room teacher to hear her. After hearing her name called, she decided to tune everything out until first period. She had a lot on her mind and really didn’t want to deal with anything until she absolutely had to. If she could have, she probably … Continue reading Present

Morning Announcements – A Prequel

A few days ago I shared a post about experiencing the morning announcements in a school where I recently worked. And it got me thinking about the morning announcements that we heard each morning in high school. During my freshman year at Patrick Henry, there was this guy who did the announcements every day. He … Continue reading Morning Announcements – A Prequel
