My First Job

16 hours ago, for day 113 by Asia 💎

I've been working since I was 14 years old. My first job was secured through one of New York City's youth initiatives, the Summer Youth Employment Program. My grandmother, then an employee in the Office of the Public Advocate, was always making sure that I was the first to know...


After Burnout

1 day ago, for day 112 by Asia 💎

It's amazing to look over the writing I've done since the beginning of this year, and to witness the patterns that unfold from within. In observing the writing, I recognize that it is the one new routine that I've been able to maintain this year. I'd like to take this...


The Myth of Laziness

2 days ago, for day 111 by Asia 💎

In today's world, it seems simple to rationalize virtually anything, even the worst part of ourselves. When everything happens for a reason, what are we to make of the negative aspects of ourselves and our lives? Given a choice between arrogance and self-deprecation, it's seen as more acceptable to be...

Death and Taxes

1 week ago, for day 105 by Asia 💎

Our new constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. — Benjamin Franklin, probably quoting some other dead rich dudes. Ah yes, it is that time of year again. Normally I...


First Friend

1 week ago, for day 104 by Asia 💎

The last friend you ever have in this world, is yourself. No one ever really tells us that, and you almost learn to be ashamed of enjoying your own company. People laugh when you tell them you talk to yourself. They tell you that you need to get out more,...


Thaw

1 week ago, for day 103 by Asia 💎

On sunny, warm days like this, the city comes alive. The apple thrums with activity, people everywhere, thriving in the sunshine after a long, cold winter. It has its downsides, no doubt, between the loud music and big crowds. But when you've been inside for so long, it's hard to...
