I haven’t posted in over a week. Now that I have a week of spring break to recuperate, here’s a quickie to keep
my imaginary readers all of you guys updated.
For the past few days I stayed with a friend and his family in their cozy cabin without internet access or cell phone service. While there, I relaxed with my AP Government review book, a young adult novel, and plenty of junk food. Now that I’m back home, I have many things to do over the rest of break, such as responding to blog comments, getting homework done, studying for AP exams, and writing some more. I’m hearing back from the rest of the colleges I applied to in two days, so I’ll finally be able to post that long awaited college acceptance post then!
On a random note, this past Friday I attended my high school’s annual Writers’ Conference. Students at my high school submitted short stories or poems to be constructively critiqued – this is the first year my piece literally received no criticism! While one of my friends outside of the conference pointed out some awkward phrasing, I’m using the ego boost to push me forward in writing my lengthier work in progress. Perhaps I’ll post the short story I wrote on this blog, hm…
Also, I haven’t been too productive today as I’ve used most of my time listening to or reading about the Supreme Court hearing Prop 8 arguments. Everyone knows where I stand on this issue, so let’s just hope the justices deliver a likable verdict over the summer – either way, I’m glad that there’s so much support and discourse flowing in from various venues! It’s never too late to grant human rights.
See you guys on Thursday at the latest, and hopefully by then I will have responded to all of your comments! To those of you on spring break and those of you who are not, I wish you a wonderful middle of the week.
