My Favorite Jack Kerouac Quote

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, and mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." - Jack Kerouac

The Writers Notebook

The Writers Notebook

View On Flickr I can clearly remember my very first writing notebook.  When I was in fourth grade, at the age of nine years old, my class teacher decided to require that every morning for first period, we would all have a 45-minute freewriting session in our notebooks.  At the time, my notebook was simply a classic ruled composition book; the standard Mead black cardboard cover with white blotches and specks all over it.  Back in those days, the neon highlighters were now just being released for sale in stores to the general public.  I can still remember wasting an entire first period coloring...

My Insatiable Knowledge Quest

I have often said that my education has somehow interfered with my learning.  This statement may be perceived, in some regards, as criticism of the modern educational system, but as for my personal experience, it deserves a much more through and detailed explanation.

When I Was 16; A Retrospect.

When I Was 16; A Retrospect.

In life, one must dream many dreams, because not all of ones dreams come true, despite our best efforts. -Thomas Slatin One of the greatest pieces of advice I impart to young people is that as we grow older, our outlook on life changes.  We see life in a different way, partially due to our own personal psychological and intellectual development, as well as a direct result of what we have experienced through our life in general.  I wish someone had told me when I was 16 that life was not what it appears to be when you're young.
