I've been doing lots of things.
I've been working on my book - a little each day, no exceptions. I'm very disciplined that way...and I get withdrawal symptoms when I don't :)
I've been writing some poems, as you may have noticed - based on song lyrics. I think that song lyrics are largely ignored, which is a shame, because it's good and relateable lyrics that attract me to a song, but they're often ignored. Through my reinterpretation poetry I hope to relay the message in a way that isn't distracted by music. I add a lyric video, courtesy of my favourite internet haunt, YouTube - I've added one for 'Exceptions', which you may have missed, so check that out. This is so that you can see the similarities between poem and lyric.
I've also decided that the pile of jeans that I don't fit into anymore has gotten alarmingly big, and that I truly have the fitness level of a hippo, so I'm being proactive about it. Ramen noodles are limited to once a week (:() and stuff like that. I'm also doing ZUMBA, which is like a workout on crack set to extremely fast music and is embarassingly fun, and I ice-skate every week. I take classes, which are kind of humiliating because we're tottering around and crashing every thirty seconds and there are these toddlers who are like spinning and flipping and scooting around and making me turn green :(...
People at school are getting slightly unbearable, but now I have my outlet - every time a particular Legolas starts bitching her great heifer ass off (that's a lie. but I like to think of it that way. And if she's got the prettier face I have nicer legs. And a bigger brain.) it becomes a chapter, just like that. BAM! So, in some ways I kind of wish she won't stop bitching, but it does make you feel like shit. I won't lie. Even a tough ass avant-garde nerd like me can get dragged down into a little puddle of shittiness by this little blonde chick who doesn't know better, and thinks that an A in Bitching will get her further than an A in Politics.
Life's hard. Life's fun. Life's horrible. Life's brilliant. Life's life.
