I’ll never stop writing. I won’t be silenced

I stand on my own. I stand alone. I, alone, with myself. I am with no one, no one else.

Fear

I’m sitting alone. In my apartment. And, 

My thoughts seem to escape me. I would like to speak them. But it’s so difficult.

How can my thoughts be expressed so passionately, so eloquently as they were formed in my head? 

Mostly, words that spew from my mouth are never the same as the thoughts that were created in my mind.

I just don’t want to be judged…Misunderstood. I want to be clear and concise. 

Sometimes I don’t understand my thoughts.

Maybe.

Maybe. I need to write. Write my thoughts. Write to understand. Write to comprehend. 

But. I still don’t know how to express what I am thinking, how I am feeling. 

Or maybe.

Maybe, I don’t want to. Maybe, I’m scared. Terrified of what others may think about my thoughts, my feelings. 

 I just want to write.

The story behind Sriracha

With a distinctive bottle and taste, Sriracha has gone from an unpronounceable challenge to a staple sauce for many Americans. In the U.S. alone, $60 million worth of the sauce was sold last year alone.

But it wasn’t always such a prevalent item on store shelves. David Tran, the man responsible for popularizing the hot sauce, had a long journey beforehand:

When North Vietnam’s communists took power in South Vietnam, Tran, a major in the South Vietnamese army, fled with his family to the U.S. After settling in Los Angeles, Tran couldn’t find a job — or a hot sauce to his liking.

So he made his own by hand in a bucket, bottled it and drove it to customers in a van. He named his company Huy Fong Foods after the Taiwanese freighter that carried him out of Vietnam.

Read more via our profile of Tran, and his beloved hot sauce.

The Phylogeny and Evolutionary History of Pokémon
The phylogenetic tree of kingdom Monstrasinu, also known as Pokémon, because science:

Conservationists have highlighted the importance of documenting extant Pokémon, many of which are known only from single specimens and all of which are threatened by the Pokémon fighting rings that are growing rapidly in popularity, particularly among urban youth.

Tough Mudder training is not for the weak.

Dear Mind,

Please, stop the insanity. I would appreciate being lucid once in a while. Normalcy is what is accepted in society which is certainly not compatible with your derangement. You’re causing people to stare, to wonder, to pity. I beg you to wait until this semester is over to fully embrace the madness. 

        

Sincerely,

The only sane fragment left of you.

I just want to sit outside forever.

The weather is so cold.

So beautiful. So numbing.
