Over the years, I've written many things down. Some are short stories, others are various rants and ramblings, some are written in the form of "mass emails." I also have a few essays and other things I'd like to share. Some things here are pretty silly and riddled with spelling errors. These I mostly put together during high school and/or college. As time permits, I try to go through, edit, and update them. Others are, I believe, a bit more thoughtful and humorous. I'm more proud of the thoughtful, but a bit nostaligic for the silly, which is why both are posted here.

A disclaimer: most of what you read here is, indeed, (mostly) fiction. I do, however, tend to be a lazy writer and tend to use the names and exaggerated characteristics of people I've interacted with over the years. Please don't sue me.
