Creative Writing

These are examples of written work produced inside and outside of class.


            Defining Home” is a work in the form of a travel story that was created in New Media class, hosted by No Madder Where. The outcome is a reflection of why I chose to constantly travel, and how a wise person once said something that changed my perception of where home is.

            Where Do You Want To Live When You Grow Up? is merely a reflection upon a casually aimed question from my English teacher while waiting for the train in Osaka, Japan. While many people end up choosing to stay where they grew up, or explore new areas, I have come to find the perfect compromise of doing neither.

            My Manifesto is a Manifesto written for one of my classes. As an attempt to wash away the ‘negative’ connotations given to the art of manifestos it was suggested that we, the students of the class, should write our own ones. Hopefully the manifesto written by a 17 year old Toomus will live up to those expectations.

            The Art of Learning How To Be Just One is a piece of writing created for one of my New Media classes that my teacher encourage me to share. It is based off a Elisabeth Hardwick quote claiming that when you travel you discover that you do not exist,  however, I remade it into one of my own realizations; “learning how to be just one” and how this happened.
