one of the things i did to pass the time at school was write stories. it actually started in a junior high english class where the teacher was trying to show us that writing was fun, and i stuck with it until my college classes needed more of my focus. some of the stories here i handed in as assignments, including some that are actually essays and not stories at all. one of them is even a poem. my more recent writing has been in the blog but i have a few ideas i might try to get out as stories.
