The meaning of …

The meaning of life, is to give life a meaning.

Denmark

imagesCAR9LC2J

Oh morbid Denmark, you wreak of rotting flesh. Blood stains the tapestry that hangs in your castle.

In your state, all that once flourished, withers into nothing: even, rue, the flower of repentance cannot grow here.

This dreadful prison, was once home to a prince, who mourned for his father daily. Now the ears of this head have become filled with poison, and all who caught the disease now lay in an eternal sleep.

Bodies lay in rows, dressed in white, but the purity of their garments touches the filth of the earth.

Even the clouds growl at the sight of Denmark, where the prince once walked, dressed in black, up and down the looming halls. His words bounced off each wall, crumbling them; crushing those who were too slow to get away.

Now the castle lies in ruins and worms eat at its flesh.

All is rotten in this state.

Goodbyes: The End of Both Writer’s Club, and High School

Over the last year, I have grown a lot as a writer. I’ve broken out of my shell and joined groups where I can spend time with other writers, doing exercises, editing, and learning about new competitions. The experience has be great, and it has helped me meet so many extraordinary people. It even helped me build a strong relationship with some of my teachers, whom of which now I trust quite a lot, and will greatly miss when I leave this small school of mine.

This week, we heard that the club would be dwindling down, as the year is coming to an end. Exams are, unfortunately much closer than we want to believe.

It’s still hard to believe that four years of my life have just zipped by. It’s as if I’d been sitting on a train in the subway waiting for my next stop. I knew it was coming, however it happened all so suddenly. Thankfully, unlike a subway train, the memories I made are not a blurred image in a window. These memories are so clear, it is as if they happened yesterday.

If only there were some way to say, “Goodbye,” without it meaning farewell.

Though I am ready to begin the next chapter in my life, saying goodbye will still feel odd. It’s as if somewhere inside of me, I think that after I walk out those doors and get on the bus for the final time, that I’ll be back again the next day….I loved my time as this little school. I have no regrets. I wouldn’t do a thing different. High school was absolutely perfect, and the memories I made during these last four years, will always be remembered in my heart as something worth cherishing.Image

I do hope that in university there will be some sort of group for writers, where I can go and meet those who have similar interests as me. I hope that I made an excellent, strong group of friends like the ones I will be finishing with. I will do my best not to crawl back into my shell, and let my presence be known. In order for these wishes of mine to become a reality, I must take small baby steps and make the first move.

While I am away, I will try and start up a list of advice to give to my younger sister, as she will need it quite soon after. It will be strange not having her storm around the house while getting ready in the morning (she isn’t a morning person). Well, I’m sure that I will get used to the changes eventually.

Till next time,

It’s Been a While…

So…it’s been a while since I’ve done any blogging…thankfully I don’t have to say the same thing about writing.

Recently, I’ve been preparing myself for the next chapter of my life: university. I’ve actually started to look into the area where I might be going to school, and I’ve been checking out a lot of the different activities so that I might get familiar with the community.

I figure, if you’re going to be living somewhere for 4 to 6 years, you should know a little bit about it.

Writing has been going very well lately. I can say I’ve made some good progress. I actually did a little experimentation…not to sure if I like it, but I can change it when I go back and edit.

Since the school year is coming to an end, I’ve been getting hammered with assignments, and tests (which is why I haven’t blogged in a while), and I honestly am at the point where all I want to do is sleep, eat, run and write. That’s it. Nothing else…well, okay I don’t like strict routines, so I guess I’ll throw in a couple of surprises here and there.

I finally got a job interview…I’m supposed to find out if I got the job today, however…I haven’t heard back yet. I hope I do by the end of the week. I really need the money for school. I personally think that I did well in that interview. I answered things confidently, and as honestly as I could without sugar coating or motor mouthing anything….

That was a funny way to put it. In other words, I didn’t make myself look like an idiot.

Well, I hope that I can get back to blogging more often.

If I get the job, I’ll have a lot to talk about, since I love this kind of work.

Anyway, I hope that everyone has a great rest of the week.

If you’re here with me in Canada, get out and enjoy the beautiful weather before it’s gone.

 

Till next time,

Orion.
