The Adventures of Pathetic Loser #1412 Vol. 14

Baby Flowers, Big Flowers Originally Known As: So I Was About to Get Stung by A Buzzing Robot Bee From the diary of 12-year-old J.J.  Sunday, August 7th, 2017 So I wake up today to what I mostly wake up to every single day: mom’s voice. It doesn’t really matter if it’s a school day, weekend…

The Adventures of Pathetic Loser #1412 Vol.9

How I Earned The Number #1412 Originally known as: “An Hour on Planet Magical!” So it’s been 9 days since the grand 26th celebration of my arriving to planet Earth aka my birthday…a not very small part of me still believes I’m at least half alien who came to planet Earth on a muffin-shaped space…

The Adventures of Pathetic Loser #1412: Vol. 1

The Day I Hit My Big Two Six So, I woke up to Sam Cooke’s Twistin’ The Night Away playing in my head; the thing that I can safely call a “potentially happy” start to a “potentially happy” birthday. Oh! I didn’t happen to mention it was my birthday, did I? Well, it was my…

Humanoid Diaries…Peace

From the diary of humanoid Jane: a senior English Literature student in the high lands of America. April, 2014 “And with that, my fellow writers, we come to a wrap on what falling action is as well as our quick review of the previous lecture”, Professor K. concluded in his normal excited news anchor-ish voice….

A Hard Year’s Morning

Saturday, December 31, 2016, 10:45 AM I think I’ve watched so many movies my life has turned into one. Or maybe it hasn’t and I’ve only watched so many movies I’ve come to see things from a movie-ish angle. But what I do know for sure is that the amount of literary more-likely-to-happen-in-movies-than-in-real-life irony, emotional mayhem and…

Of The Finale…or the “I Ching”!

It’s been exactly 37 days since I became officially a quarter century old. This year, my birthday happened to fall on a Saturday…a weekend birthday, yaaay, let’s blast it, right? Well, no! I spent my 25th as normally as an average Tuesday (not even a Saturday), and you know what? It wasn’t sad at all…I…

#20: Of The Missed School Trip

One of the most interesting things about being an adult is that you get to face a lot of crossroads…you get to be a constant visitor, rather a resident, of that place where it all comes down to the choice you make. And the even more interesting thing is, sometimes you aren’t even aware that…

#19: Of the A-student Syndrome

All my life I have been nothing but a straight-A student. I was good at each and every subject out there…Math, Science, English, you just name it. And I truly did love studying. I enjoyed the whole learning process despite the fact everyone at school cared about nothing but grades (and sadly that is still…

#18: Of La Vita That Is Molto Bella

About 3 months ago, I watched La Vita E Bella for the first time…and I cried. With the opening credits, the music had touched my soul in a way that only a genius twist of chords can do; it literally shone with positivity. And here is the even more genius thing, this music, those innate…

#16: Of Someone Else’s Life/ The Girl in the Mirror

If you happen to know Michael Buble’s song, “Home”, there’s that line where he says: “And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life. It’s like I just stepped outside when everything was going right.”   I was listening to that song on my way home yesterday and just as I came across that…

#15: Of Planet Earth, and How It Turns

One of my favorite lyric lines ever is from Owl City’s Fireflies…it goes like: “I like to make myself believe…that planet Earth turns slowly.”   But here’s the ugly truth, planet Earth doesn’t turn slowly; as a matter of fact, time flies at a supersonic speed. And ironically enough, I only came to realize it,…
