Anyone Want to Purchase a Book of Sunshine's Original Poetry?

Yay! I'm the first person on Amanda's list of tagged individuals. Whatever that means. I'll find out soon enough though. Anyway, this is my first looooooong Wednesday (again). Did the same thing last semester. Brandy and I ride to school together to conserve gas (and it's easier to find one parking place than two, although my car's twin occasionally helps me out there :)) and between both of our schedules today, we're here from 8:30 AM to 9:30 PM. And my first class was only 5 minutes long because my prof was sick. I hope he gets better soon--he's a cool guy. So I read my goofy poem in poetry class today (profound statement?). Didn't get booed or hissed and luckily no rotten veggies were thrown either. I got a few suggestions, which I will probably not heed, because I'm a little jerky when it comes to criticism of my own work. The poem was something about land ownership in rural areas. Some people liked it though. I need to write 30 pages of poetry and make a book for that class. I think it will be fun though, especially the bookmaking part.

Brandy and I went to Taco Bell today--awesome. Then when we got back, there were no parking places. And when one WOULD open up? Somebody else got it. Brandy was mad. Well, I dealt with this last semester some, so I guess we're even now. I have most of my homework done now, but I am getting a head start on a Hemingway novel. Feel like I've already read it for some reason... life in a foreign city... various types of alcoholic beverages flowing freely... women. Oh wait, that's every Hemingway novel! What was I thinking??? And this one is supposed to be an autobiography. Hmmm...

Surprised I haven't gotten kicked out of Booth library yet. Brandy and I combined have the maturity level of an 8-year-old. Combined. And for some reason, it is really fun to act stupid in the quietest rooms of the library. Don't ask me why. Just try it for yourself sometime. But make sure you don't get in trouble--that takes the fun out of it. Like the time I got in trouble at Lake Land for eating in the East building... not a cool day in history.

Well, I guess I better get back to Hemingway now. I know the basic background of the plot, but I don't know how it will end, as I have never been able to finish a Hemingway book yet. Adios.

Next time we may just have to walk somewhere to eat-not putting up with the parking drama anymore (once is enough).

I love being loud in a quiet building-so much fun-pretty immature too but oh well.

Today would of sucked (well that goes for every Wed this semester) if I didn't get to hang out with you and be pretty dang goofy the whole time-now that is fun.

Glad somebody appreciates my idiocy.

You don't have to leave comments on here--we're sitting right next to each other in the library.

Cool. Thanks A.G.! I really do plan on making at least one copy of a poetry book for the class, and the prof wants us to make copies and offer them for sale at Celebration (or whatever it's called), some arts and crafts expo EIU has once a year or something. I don't know if I'll really do it or not though.
