The Mall: Issue #2
Shoppers are welcome to the mall. Shoppers are advised to cheer up some of these droopy faces as this is the ‘my life’s a joke’ issue. Honestly nobody’s life is a joke since every life adds a certain special something into the mix.
Katie Gallagher overcomes addiction. Energy bars provide that boost people need to get through the day. However this assumes people need to do so much in a single day. Sometimes it is better to do less, and to do the less well. Accomplishing too much can give a constant tired feeling hence all the energy bars.
Codi Oliver discusses online identity. Millions of people act out specific personas online that reflect what they are in real life. Such an approach is laughable and somewhat boring. What’s more interesting is to create a sort of ‘new identity’ online that offers a sort of ‘outlet’ for various habits that one cannot indulge otherwise. Here Codi mentions the negative aspects (trickery, lies, etc.). There are positive aspects as well. By maintaining an anonymous or semi-anonymous online persona there’s the ultimate chance for helping out others, others who otherwise would never meet IRL.
Wyatt Sparks stays positive. The world runs on Dunkin for a reason. Here Wyatt makes a noble confession: he’s a Dunkin guy. Love for Dunkin extends to donuts. Other aspects are unimportant to Wyatt. One of those aspects is the caffeine. That’s how he sleeps 13 hours a day. If everybody slept 13 hours a day the world would be a better place.
Lucy Tiven remembers a show on the WB, channel 11. Yes ‘Roswell’ was supposedly good. Many did not watch it however. They probably missed out, it is hard to tell. For some unspecified reason she drives to New Jersey, America’s heartland. She feels like she is getting better. Maybe she is. Rothko didn’t get better though. His work is intense. A tattoo of a Rothko painting would be too hard with too few getting the reference.
Emily Elizabeth Scott makes a grocery list. No there isn’t anything to buy. There are only things to regret. So much regret is in the world and there’s not enough time to regret it all. Looking through someone’s twitter feed shouldn’t bring regret. Twitter feeds bring enlightenment. Waking up in the wrong bed brings enlightenment too. Only one of those things is easy. Defeating Shaq is not easy. Despite overwhelming obstacles Emily manages to overpower the puny Shaq to reign supreme over his vast wealth and landholdings.
Thais Benoit recalls an earlier time. It was a simpler time of water squirt guns filled with human urine. Forts guarded their childhood. Growing up is so tough that literal defenses have to be built to defend it. What childhood brings is extreme immaturity. Of course a sand castle was going to be a victim of Thais’ wild and out of control behavior.
Ryan Pieroni makes small talk with a 911 operator. Normally 911 aren’t used for these kinds of situations. Loneliness is an emergency though with the right circumstances. Good thing Ryan has a friend to pick up the receiver on the other side, no matter the time of day.
Jovial Jellyfish floats in the surf of the web. For this amicable jellyfish there is happiness. Arguments are beyond the jellyfish’s comprehension. However Jovial Jellyfish is no ordinary jellyfish for it is developed enough to have emotions, to be its own jellyfish. Some jellyfish never even die; they are the immortals of creatures loving what they do.
Unfortunately like the real mall this too must close. Everyone should check out this virtual mall for the latest and greatest deals.
