Student Narrative

The Year is 8,205 – You stumble upon a painted rock split down the middle. I don't know if you read my language, I don't know if anyone does. The rock slides apart, like a tomb of some sort, and inside rests a document. 11 insights into what life was like, at least for me, all those years ago as I tried to cope with everything sour in the world. Hey, I've found some answers but I doubt they'd work for you. Either way, you and your friend can drag this back to your dwelling now and try to sell it to a natural history museum. Or hide it under your bed and take it out some nights and just flip through the pages. May it bring you the peace of mind that it gave me to make.

The World May Be Falling Apart But We Can Still Dance to Calypso Music
