Well, today is the big day, folks. My words (well they were mostly mine) were put in print in the major voice of college journalism today: The Daily Eastern News. I have to say I was more than a little irritated that they added cheap extras like, "were some of my thoughts" and changed the ending. I liked it the way it was, that's why I submitted it as such. But that is life when you deal with editors.
So far nobody has noticed the column but me.
By the way, the picture is--as I expected--a bad one, where I look like a wasted hippie. Oh wait, I always look like that.
But in all seriousness, I am happy to finally have something out there. I submitted a second story to the DEN on Monday, and I will probably spend a day this weekend writing several more. For Val, here's an attempt at a link: http://www.dennews.com/media/paper309/news/2006/02/09/Opinions/The-Joys.Of.Commuting.And.Parking-1605078.shtml?norewrite&sourcedomain=www.dennews.com
I have an STD meeting tonight, and I think I'll go to English Club on Tuesday. I'm actually getting tired of these long days, but I need stuff for resumes and college apps. Plus I need more T-shirts.
Now on to yesterday...
Yesterday was a very sleepy day for me. I fell asleep several times in the middle of Much Ado About Nothing. I mean I literally fell asleep in the book. I drool a lot in my sleep, but luckily I woke up before giving my textbook water damage. I really can't afford to pay for that right now.
Then in Shakespeare class I was in la-la land for approximately 43 minutes and 22 seconds. Sometime during la-la time, I did not understand a joke, playing on the word "nothing" in the play. I don't really want to elaborate. If you don't understand it, then do some research on what the word "nothing" was a slang for in Elizabethan England.
Yesterday was the final performance of the 4 Days at Jenni's Tour. It came complete with a demon possessed portable CD player, a trip to the bathroom in the dark while more than 50% asleep, and yet another dream where I was smoking. The trip was fun while it lasted.
Did I remember to repack my toothbrush?
