What if it was all a game?

Shea Standish, 16

My name is Shea, and I try to make people smile. Never mind, that sounds kind of creepy. Let me rephrase. I want to make people happy, even when I’m sad. I write funny things to draw other people out, even when I’m hidden within the depths of my soul. Now I sound like a depressing poet. But you get the point, right? My writing is meant to help other people, and by extension, myself. I want to make other people feel appreciated, valued, like someone out there cares about them. So, if you’re reading this and you’re having a bad day, just send me an email at [email protected] See? I bet even my gmail name made you laugh because of its lameness. I hope this story makes you, whoever you are, laugh. Reading over this, I have come to the conclusion that I am cringey.
