This entry is part 47 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Obed Kainos Couldn’t sleep, so I finished my decorating project. I think the wall hangings add personality. I didn’t believe it myself, but I actually met a guy named Bob Brown today, and a girl named Sarah Smith! They were far from bland, mind you, but I almost couldn’t…

By Obed Kainos Got back from work at seven. The shower is still a novelty, hehe. Very luxurious and relaxing. I couldn’t sleep yesterday. The bed was too big and empty. Tried sleeping on the floor. That worked better, but not good enough, so I went out to buy canvas…

This entry is part 43 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Cassandra Talbot I left the office early today. I told Sarah I was having a ridiculous allergy spell, which wouldn’t be too far from the truth (early spring pollen absolutely kills me). But, the fact is, it wasn’t the truth. It was a brilliant lie, it really was. She…

By Mitch Mosier I almost didn’t write here today. I didn’t spend the whole day in my room, so I wasn’t bored enough to use this journal. Today was interesting enough for a journal, though. One more run with this blasted electronic thing. No one had given me a schedule….

This entry is part 39 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Mitch Mosier I think Ms. Talbot is mad at me. She said she wasn’t, but it’s like when you’re a kid and you break an antique plate playing war with Nerf guns. You feel so bad that your mom says it’s all right, though you know by her face…

This entry is part 38 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Mitch Mosier Hello, again, journal. The most interesting thought in my mind right now is that I’m glad my room has a bathroom. Whenever I stay at a friend’s house, I wait in bed until after he wakes, though I always wake up first. Something about being in someone…
