I hope this letter finds you well. It has been a while since you wreaked havoc on the Lylat System. I’m sure you’ve been busy doing odd jobs as a space pirate in a far corner of the galaxy, but we’ve got to talk Smash.
The other day, I witnessed an odd traffic mishap. As I approached a red light, a van in front of me drove through the intersection nonchalantly. I didn’t see brake lights nor any indication of caution from the driver. Fortunately, they didn’t cause an accident.
The autumn season is beautiful. It is nature’s final act to show her colors until she lies in dormancy. She will be reborn and bursting with life in the following seasons. This cycle is a necessary part of life.
A breeze chills my cheek as I rake leaves into a pile.
…is this just fantasy? Now that song is stuck in your head.
I recently read Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang’s In Real Life and I loved it. This graphic novel deals with the issues of sexism, online relationships, economics, and 3rd world exploitation—all wrapped up in an easy-to-digest story for young adults.
