corner view "shower and bathroom"

I am very interested to see what others are doing for this topic. :P But I thought I'd throw in a little goofyness.

Here is pretty much the only picture I could think of using (an old photo by the way).
Where we live, most of the beaches have outdoor showers. They are very useful. However, they happen to be very cold. So here is my lovely attitude while enduring one of these showers.

Thanks Francesca for hosting. :)

corner view "attendance"

Today I attended the last day of my English 104 class. It was a college class hosted in the building of my high school. Next semester I will be venturing off with two other friends to take classes at the actual college campus. It should be an awfully big adventure. :)
During this class we wrote poems and short stories. The one I will share was used in my portfolio as a free write but it was written originally as a "metaphor for an emotion" poem. 


Open your eyes
And you can see everything
As you watch the stars
Melt through your fingertips
And become sweet and silky

You chase harder; blind 
With a smile regardless 
of the ignorance

Too high; you're too high now
Above reason
Mindless; free; lost
Grasping for the open

For the pain 
is so raw

But it will unlatched and thin
As your eyes pull me in

Can you guess the metaphor?

Thanks Francesca for hosting. :)

corner view "one color"

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

And we grow closer...

corner view "stranger"

While in Europe this past summer, I noticed all of the people I was around. It was interesting being around kids my age but not being able to communicate with them.

I kept asking my mom if she was positive I wasn't somehow part Italian. She said no. So I told her, "Fine, I'll just marry an Italian." :P

Plus, somehow in Europe, everyone is just so beautiful...

Here are some beautiful strangers
