No. I haven't become an alcoholic or anything (though I could legally purchase alcohol lol)
If you haven't noticed, which I'm sure you have...I haven't posted in over a month.
That's my fault.
I could say that it's because I've been busy (and I was at first) but now I have tons of extra time. I have simply gotten out of the habit.
I'll move on to writing since that is ostensibly what this blog is supposed to be about.
I've been trying to write a poem lately. I have to for creative writing. This is defnitely a stretch for me. I am not a poet by any stretch of the imagination and certainly not by my teacher's imagination.
I chose to write in a sonnet form because I knew I needed some sort of structure in order to get some sort of poetic rhythm. It definitely is harder than it looks. I think I scratched through seven or eight different versions of the first stanza before I got to what I wanted. I didn't change the subject...just the sentence structure and all that lovely jazz.
I have a new found appreciation for poets. It is definitely hard work to create a beautiful poem. For my part I will leave that to those who feel they have talent in that area.
Since I don't plan on ever publishing that poem I'll probably post it up here.
Only thirteen more class days and three exam days until I graduate! (26 until the actual day)
