It occured to me that in 2016 I experienced a summer of baseball like no other.

Think about the championships I either witnessed in person or even was more fortunate to broadcast.

The College World Series win by a collaboration of grinders from Coastal Carolina Who played their heart out and laid it all on the line for life-time Coach Gary Gillmore. A man cut straight out of a walter Mathau bad news bears persona.

A little league world series championship win by kids from a tiny town in  upstate new York known More for its Spiedies than its baseball. Look up Spiedies, they are hard to explain. A true inspiration to the Little engine that could accomplish anything including a summer in whic...

       THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS

They say that we often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we DON'T HAVE, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we DO HAVE.

Will Smith stars in this moving tale inspired by the true story of Chris Gardner, a San Francisco salesman struggling to build a future for himself and his 5-year-old son Christopher (Jaden Smith). Chris' determination finally pays off when he lands an unpaid internship in a brutally competitive stockbroker-training program, where only one in twenty interns will make the cut. But without a salary, Chris an...

To the Obama's, thank you for your service towards our great country!

Personally I feel our country is already great. You get out of the country what you put in, work hard, and rewards will come. While everybody does not agree with our new president, I would compare it to that co-worker or teammate that you don't get along with, just on a bigger stage. Must work together or will fail together.

Stay Great America.

Hello there, my name's Zsa-Zsa Robles, I'm 21 years old and I'm dating a trans boy.

A lot of people might think "What is going on?" "What is the purpose of you telling us this?" Etc. Well, to be completely honest I have come here to tell you that it's not easy. Dating someone like my boyfriend it's not like being in a normal relationship. Seeing your partner standing in front of mirrors for hours it's not the best feeling in the world and if I feel like that, and it causes me so much pain, I can't imagine how hard it is for him. I, myself, am patient of depression and anxiety and my boyfriend is as well. This alone makes it 10,000 times harder for us to deal with. The fact that he can't loo...

The pursuit

You are breathing.
Your chest rattles along the dirt road in your veins. A reminder that your body is more the same beautiful, as a car on empty. The engine pushes your heart into the curve of the street, veering you confidence off balance. You try to pray, attempt to clasp both hands in your carefully exonerated fingers, believing that perhaps this will give you the balance you have been seeking. And then you remember, that it never has. That moments like this, pulsating against the threshold of your mind are far too belligerent for their own good. That you, Goddess, have not learned to ascend to you throne. You can see castles in the sky built out dreams and still cannot reach...

Hazme un rinconcito en tu cama cada noche
en tus comidas, deja un espacio en tu mesa para mi
en tu cerebro...dedícame un pensamiento cada hora
en tus sueños... imagina varias aventuras juntos
y en tu corazón...bríndame toda una vida para amarte.

My typos are on purpose
Keep your money if you're worthless
Spend those twenties if it's worth it
Sip that Henny bish don't slurp it
If ya got that ass than Twerk it
U need the D do u deserve it?
I'll be right here if u gone jerggit

I take a break from drinking
Got some food and now I'm thinking
Lost my voice from too much singing
Don't got a choice I'm Pisces
Seaking
Pokémons not what I'm
Seeking
Some fun with puns
You're ears are ringing
Still got some bitties
Or they bee stings ?
Money's tight broke like my
E string
A funny joke
Tehehe heing
Key to your heart
Still on my Key ring
Fob push to start
Nice crown I'll be king

Tomorrow is going to be a really good day. I'm so excited I don't want to sleep.
Things are finally falling into place for once in my life.
I got my name changed, my nee birth certificate came in today. So tomorrow I'm going to be changing over all my I.D and possibly going for my G1. I have an appointment with the college here tomorrow. I'm hoping that goes over well and I get the info I need and hopefully will be attending in fall. I have high hopes for this meeting and couldn't be more happu with mu decision. I thought going to Trios in London for Video Game Development was going to be my future but I realize now it was definitely not. I was not in the slightest excited for that meet up....

Hello, lettrs community!

For school, I'm writing for my English final, a narrative about social injustice I would like feedback. I've chosen the topic of the LGBTQ+ community. I hope that you enjoy it. I've titled it "I'm Ben"

"Hello. My name is Kate- I mean, Ben. I am Ben. I'm here to testify who I am now.
"Before, when I was foolish and little I believed so strongly I was born in the wrong body. I was convinced that I was not a boy.
"I remember getting refused by my parents to be called Kate instead of Ben. And I remember the first time I asked my mother if I could grow out my hair, and she said, 'no,' and she cut it shorter. I remember when I asked my father if I could be a princess for ...

Quiero destruir el mundo, y armar el rompecabezas que se completa con sus piezas,
encontrar las verdades ocultas en las palabras falsas de los falsos a quienes encomendamos nuestro futuro.

Quiero encontrar la pieza que perdimos al perder nuestra libertad.
Quiero encontrar las que olvidamos detrás del tapiz, escondidas bajo las almohadas,
marchitas en el jardín bañado de cruces

Did you ever see something
...

Right before it happens
The event is irrelevant
Its all about that moment before
Brace for impact
And in a hopeless attempt
To hide yourself away
To keep the horrible from happening
From letting it see right inside you
Deeper than you intentioned
You look away
But even though you look away
You still see it
You still close your eyes
Your lids serve as a canvas
Black with flakes of sight
Painted is the image
Of the horrible
You still see it  
And for a moment
Not that you would notice
You are unashamed
You, more so your eyes
They are my brace for impact
My moment before
Your voice is like the melody
That helps to build the moment
Your words the anthem
And t...

"Até podes deixar a luva, mas não deixas a tua mão.
Até podes deixar o teu cheiro mas o teu abraço não fica em mim entranhado.
Até podes deixar a alma e o pensamento mas não estás e só o facto de não estares faz com que estejas em todo o lado, até naqueles lugares que não eram meus nem nunca foram; e nem nossos  mas que por sinal já o são. Lugares ao acaso e aleatoriamente como estarmos vivos hoje e amanhã já não estarmos aqui para contar a história. Gosto de memória e de memórias, mas não de dramatismos nem de outra vida que não a minha.
A tua luva ali ficou, onde a deixaste. Não. Não lhe peguei . Fiquei com as memórias,  com os sabores, com brisas efémeras de um tempo que passa a correr. ...

Why? Why do you hate me so much?
I have the same skin, blood, bones and eyes and even I didn't, I was still a part of you. This silent torture and the loathsome hostility eats me up. We were divorced, but still a part of what I breathe every day. Thousands of those who shared the bread on the same plate with you are slain red with the knives we never wanted? Our tears are the same and so are the wounds, we have more of green than yours. We want things to be green once again. You mixed your colors with different shades, we kept it green to reminisce what was ours. Our hearts are scarred and we cry, leaning against the same wall. We don't talk and swords are the words these days. Yet, those gre...

Things we should not say to someone diagnosed with depression:

1. You don't have enough will power.
2. You are just lazy.
3. You don't want to change.
4. Stop the medication. Just do yoga.
5. You are suffering because you did something shitty in your past lives

She is, indeed, different from the rest.

He sees in her, the person, not just the name, not just the words, not just the hobbies and interests, but the thoughts and emotions.

He describes her as one of a kind.

She is not much into emotional stuffs, which he thinks, is not common in the femme world. She watches romantic movies, to accompany her single girlfriends, reads romantic pocketbooks, but he doubts if these satisfy her want or she reads it just to see if the books can trigger in her the same emotions shared by her girlfriends.

He knows that she loves reading so much, but from his observation, it seems that her main reason is to gather some thoughts,more perspectives, more id...

I see you. Those miserable eyes starring at the bluest of skies.

I'll miss you. That smile, that lovely smile that destroys my heart.
