Revisiting "A Boy and His Castles"
I wrote this over a year ago. November 7th, to be exact. This is one of the few things I’m truly proud to have written. I also feel like it’s been long enough, that I can finally take my own advice, take a deep breath, and remember that no matter what happens, everything will end up exactly how it’s supposed to end up. Back in the days before Facebook, iPhones, and 3D...
Procrastination, being the great and mighty ship that it is, took me to the Wikipedia page on curling, far away from my Constitutional Law casebook. Curling is fascinating. Not as a sport, but as a metaphor. It’s a stretch, but one I am perfectly comfortable making. I’ve had the urge lately to reinvent myself. To switch things up. To redefine what it means to be a “me.” I...
This is for you. It’s been hiding in my head...

It was a cold night. It was the kind of pre-winter night where autumn was really starting to show its teeth. The streets were wet. It seemed like they were always wet during this time of year. No one ever saw the rain, no one even seemed to care. They just accepted it. That soft layer of moisture gave the lights a little extra shine that bathed the world in a state of perpetual...
I had a thought today. It’s an idea that I’ve been trying to come to grips with for quite some time. I hate change. I’m the kind of person who hates letting go. I will let something tear me apart before I succumb to change. In days of late, though, I’m beginning to realize that resisting change is futile. To fight change is to fight the natural inevitable…...
Wendy: So, now your adventures are over.
Peter: Oh, no. To live... to live would be an awfully big adventure.
There, I just said it.
I’m scared you’ll forget about me.
I wrote this when I was 14. This is the best example of the stage in my life that I have come to refer to as “post-pubescent pseudomodernism.” I was much more interesting before I could drive. We glide across the leaves We are the breeze that move the trees All the world sways in our time Captured, grasped, and left to fly Pirhouetting in the softness of the evening wind We...
A downward spiral? Just a pirouette.

Garden State is such a beautiful movie.
A good woman will pick you apart A box full of suggestions for your possible heart And you may be offended, and you may be afraid But don’t walk away Don’t walk away
Dylan: You know, my mom lived in Germany for, like, 8 years. She used to be fluent.
German Exchange Student: Do you speak any German?
Dylan: A little.
German Exchange Student: Show me!
Dylan: (German vocabulary words, names of the Von Trapp children, brief list of European car manufacturers in rapid succession)
German Exchange Student: That was terrible.
There is a heaven. I have seen it.
