Now. This is another multi topic-ed journal. Here we go.
1. Today was the last day of school until 2011, exciting. Last time to see Bday, too :( but I think a break may be good for my Bday-obsessed mind.
2. We did an English assignment that was supposed to help us find our 'voice' in poems by cutting up other poems. We also had to include similes and hyperbole, etc. but I got... sidetracked. In case ths matters, the four poems we could cut from were: Winter Trees, by William Carlos Williams, The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost, Gathering Leaves by Robert Frost, and November Morning by Evaleen Steen. Generally we were supposed to take phrases we liked, or just words, but anything at all could be taken from the sheets the poems were printed on. Mine got a little depressing after a while. It didn't fit the requirements so much. Here it is (without caps like it had to be):
the complicated details elude my embrace
and what have I then?
I shall be telling this with a sigh
I make a great noise
next to nothing of use
oh, can it be that darkness
to mock the summer rainbows
weight like earth
flowing over my arms
into my face
again and again
such sparkle, sparkle, sparkle with many colored gleam
fills all the frosty air
and that has made all the difference
And I was supposed to put it on the 'poem board' with all the people who described snowflakes, and... Robert Frost being gay. Yes, a line from the original 'November Morning' is 'the autumn sun, in wonder, is gayly peering through'
You can bet some people had a lot of fun with THAT.Sheesh.
3. A creepy boy has decided to get annoy me as much as possibe by calling me 'she', and elbow me repeatedly because gaj knows I don't like physical contact. Anyway, today as I was watchingBday leave and almost CRYING (stupid Flyby)a bunch of boys came up to me, pointed, and yelled,"SHEEE!" Doesn't havemuch of an effect without context,though still annoying.*eyeroll*
