Carl waited at the cafe alone for about 20 minutes. Nervous.

He had a lot to tell his supervisor. He had researched at theΒ  Westcity publicΒ  library all weekend. Old newspapers. And now he had a thesis. But then ten minutes past. His coffee cup was empty. He wanted another, but...

Four miles west of where Andrew Cook received his 2nd coffee, James Sallis climbed the set of stairs that must've cost at least 2.5 million dollars to design and construct. He thought of the principle of spending that much on just a stairwell. Of course this was no ordinaryΒ  stairwell...

writing honestly

I never learned to write honestly on a daily basis. I'd maybe crank something worthwhile two, maybe three days a year, but I was never one of those writers who could do it consistently.

This is something I admired about Haruki Murakami , who I couldn't consider a "great" writer, but...

winning a hackathon

Thoughts of another drink swarmed the young man who sat at the table near the window at a cafe off Baker Ave. Usually the slim, hoodied figure got more coffees than his brain and nerves needed because he was procrastinating on some pending school deadline.

clean and dirty blood

To keep his ten pints ofΒ  blood clean, hisΒ  kidneys yielded around two liters of urine each day. He had a friend who's kidneys weren't working like once were. She was on the transplant recipient list, but it had been a year now, and there was no clarity on how...

a 36 year old

Except for one month, I wrote everyday for 12 years. I remember vividly the winter afternoon I stopped such a habit. It was a few days after my 36th birthday. I'd taken the day off from work. And just like on any day off from work I had been lazily...

"Mark... are you alright?"

"Yeah."

"What's wrong? I can tell. Something's off. Come on. I haven't seen you like this since the days... Well you know. Back when Sean was around. And Eduardo was threatening to shut down all our servers... and damn, we were still writing fuckingΒ  PHP . God I...

before lunch as reply to undead

Sam Barley sat lazily, throbbing back and forth against the mesh net of his mid-tier office chair, thinking about one thing: the only thing guys in their mid 20s employed at a 9 to 5 thought of at this time of day. He rubbed his belly. lunch .

The Internets

They say if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

If you don't live for something, then you'll just wait around to die.

What is it like to wait around to die?
