I keep him happy 'cause I might fall out if he cries

Hey y'all!

So I'm thinking I might want to submit a piece I wrote to a writing competition. I think the fact that I'm getting some work out there will encourage me to write more often.

I wish I knew some young writers!!! I want to know what they're doing to get themselvwes out there or maybe read some of their stuff to see if I'm at their level.

If any aspiring writers see this... A l'aide!!!!

Writer's Block: A Favorite Poem

What is one of your favorite poems?



"I am the only being whose doom..."

By Emily Brontë



I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born



In secret pleasure--secret tears
This changeful life has slipped away
As friendless after eighteen years
As lone as on my natal day



There have been times I cannot hide
There have been times when this was drear
When my sad soul forgot its pride
And longed for one to love me here



But those were in the early glow
Of feelings since subdued by care
And they have died so long ago
I hardly now believe they were



First melted off the hope of youth
Then Fancy's rainbow fast withdrew
And then experience told me truth
In mortal bosoms never grew



'Twas grief enough to think mankind
All hollow servile insincere
But worse to trust to my own mind
And find the same corruption there

tonight we can truly say together we're invincible

Good news: I just joined my school's book club:D We haven't had a meeting yet so I'm not sure if I have to read french books or not... Moving on to the real reason I posted. I wanted to make a list of all the books I currently own and haven't read. Yes, I guess that's kind of sad, seeing as I'm only doing this because I have an uncommon vast amount of time to fill until my mother returns home with thaï express. "Don't you have better things to do?" some may ask, well... no, not until House, Grey's Anatomy and America's Next Top Model resume playing.

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

Oh, and incase Bella sees this : Happy Birthday. I only want it to be a happy one because if you're happy Edward's happy and the majority of the Twilight fandon and I WANT Edward to be happy. You see, Bella, that is called selflessness. LOOK IT UP. You have A LOT of ground to make up for in Breaking Dawn so start paying better attention to Edward. Ugh. You better be a vampire by now *grumbles* Okay, I will now stop scolding/threatening a fictitious character.

** Note to Stephy: When your mom refered to my dad's posterior as buns it SO WAS a pun because we were talking about whether or not we should toast the hamburger buns. HAH. Don't pay any attention to the fact that it took me a week to come up with this;)

HELLOOOOOO!!!
I know, I know... second post of the day:D I'm just suddenly really ecstatic that another school year is beginning tomorrow. This enthusiasm may or may not be linked to the fact that I just ate approximately ten timbits and that a ridiculous amount of sugar is now in my bloodstream, pulsing through my system, making me go haywire. Like I said, that's just one possibility. The other is that this year I don't have to sit through two hours of my spanish teacher's pointless rambling. That would be enough to lift anyone's spirits.

I'm trying a bold new approach to the way I handle school this year : I'm going to be optimistic (risqué?). Of course, this will only last until the end of the week, if I'm lucky. *supress pessimistic thoughts*

Which Twilight novel character are you?




You're Edward Cullen - You have great taste for the finer things in life, a classic style, and you understand the way people work so you can manipulate easily. You have many talents and a bit of a temper, but you are mostly level-headed and rational.

methinks...

I'm almost at the fourth act of a Midsummer Night's Dream... It's slightly depressing to read. Lately, reading a really good book is directly translated into "You'll never write something this intricate and beautiful..." *le sigh*
This leads me to the creation of my list

The top ten people whose brains I want:

1) Stephenie Meyer
2) Scott Westerfeld
3) Quentin Tarantino
4) Emily Brontë
5) William Shakespeare
6) Gregory House
7) Amy Lee
8) Matthew Bellamy
9) Frederic Chopin
10)Claude Debussy

it's raining

I am so wired right now. I can't sleep. Tomorrow, I'm leaving for BC and I have no idea what I'm going to do on the five hour plane ride out west.

I've been reading Wuthering Heights for the past two days in preparation for Eclipse(LESS THAN A MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) On the 21st I'm supposed to be in Seattle and I'm sort of depressed because if I would have gone to Seattle a month later I would have caught Stephenie on her tour premoting Eclipse:( The first time I met her was almost exactly a year ago(in Forks no less)It was an incredible 24 hours... and this time of year brings back powerful waves of nostalgia.

By the way Stephy you can comment the quotes here :D
