JUNE 10TH

2017-02-03T02:25:24+00:00January 26th, 2013|

I was nervously waiting as my wife sat up on the bed with her hands behind her back. It was probably close to midnight, and I had just gotten back from California two hours earlier. Right before I left the west coast my wife told me she had something to tell me when I got [...]

30 Days

2017-02-03T02:25:24+00:00January 21st, 2013|

For half of my childhood I was raised in Passaic NJ. At the time the city of Passaic was made up of mostly African American and Latino residents. My elementary school had about ten white kids total that I could remember. When my mother moved my siblings and me to rockaway NJ the ratio from [...]

Hello, my name is Cornell Thomas and I'm a dreamer. I know this might seem a little weird in this day and age, but I don’t see the world like most people do. I see the world in a myriad of colors not just black and white. I believe the world is what I make [...]

WRITERS BLOCK…

The cursor is honking at me every time it blinks. It's telling me to write something that will inspire, and it’s impatient. [...]

The time period she was living in was during the Great Depression. That alone is probably enough for anyone to deal with let alone an 11yr [...]

PURPOSE

2017-02-03T02:25:25+00:00January 5th, 2013|

Purpose: the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used. There was a movie that came out in the 80's called the Terminator. The former governor of California was this robot from the future whose sole purpose was to kill a woman named Sarah O Connor. It seemed that Sarah had a son [...]

THE MYSTERY OF HOW

2017-02-03T02:25:25+00:00January 2nd, 2013|

Around 8 am yesterday it started. As I put out my daily quote on both Face book and twitter I saw a familiar theme. People from all over were posting their own personal resolutions for the upcoming new year. The term "new me" was being posted more than the usual relationship updates and negative statuses. [...]
