A Fantastic Post Everyday!

Just the best blog on WordPress.com

Tag Archives: notebook

Embarrassment, shyness, blushing, and politicians. These are the things I think of when I think shame. But most of all, I think about the title of my blog which claims enthusiastically “A Fantastic Post Everyday!”

According to the information provided by my dashboard, the last time I posted was in August 2, 2011. Since then, thanksgiving, christmas, new years, overseas catastrophes, and Rick Perry making a fool of himself has occurred. And trust me, these events didn’t happen in the duration of one day.

So yes, the actions of my blogging have contradicted the purpose of it (which is reliability, certainty, and fantastic-ness). So in that respect, I apologize to all my viewers (about three of you)

Looking into the future, I will definitely be posting more. You ask, will I be posting daily? Most likely not, but as the saying goes, quality over quantity am I right?

So until the next post, I say adieu. I truly and deeply love all of you and I hope we will one day meet again.

Good night

Can you trust Public Library users?

I am in a library. I just logged into this computer (with my own username and password, how cool am I?) and logged onto gmail, checked email(s), logged onto facebook, checked messages (I have friends), and logged onto this baby, and decided impetuously that I needed then and there to go to the bathroom. I didn’t want to spoil my hard work of opening so many tabs, and I didn’t have time to log out of everything, so I decided, reluctantly, to keep everything open for the public to see and possibly hack into. In addition, I left my purse- brown faux leather, sturdy structure, magnetic opening, free with purchase- completely open on the ground. I know what you’re thinking, and believe me, I am thinking it too.

So I return from my trip and frantically flip through my belongings, grasping my cellphone from the bottom of the bag, sorting through my keys and hearing that satisfying clink! sound, and flipping through the tabs to make sure my password wasn’t mysteriously changed or screwed up. My trip away from the computer was an success! Perhaps people are more respectful than we could have imagined!

Anyways, today I have written a few things in my notebook. I find that I am having a love-hate relationship with this stack of paper. Although I am enamoured with the big spiral binding, which ideally should allow the user to flip from one page to the next with ease, it seems to get caught and I can’t close the book properly with the cover lying flat across the top. As much as I am irritated, I must persist, and this is what I have written in it today:

closing paragraph

future research- what will happen next (history)

want research in closing

” currently” instead of “today”

*________________!

no pronouns, make title page, may leave pronoun in thesis statement, also this these that is not allowed.

Last # on top right–> don’t forget!

I continue on with my chicken scratch- not only is all of this illegible, but even when legible, makes absolutely no sense! Allow me to explain. I just got out of my college writing class and forgot my big notebook where I keep my usual notes. So, as you may have guessed already, I destroyed this notebook with scribbles and weird symbols and the usual. Today we discussed closings for history papers, which apparently must connect to the present or future research (which I was not aware of, perhaps you can put some input into this?) Now I have to cram this paper in tonight or tomorrow as I should also be working on my French homework (you will soon discover that I love writing in French… heh heh). Until next time!

Yellow and Orange

7/11! I have always found that number combination entertaining because there is an entire franchise named after it (seven eleven, if you haven’t guessed)! I have already written some things into my notebook. The first day is always the most exciting, isn’t it? The fresh, unexplored possibilities, the clean, paper aroma-ed pages, and the smooth, smooth texture. I always enjoy opening a fresh new notebook. I love the experience. But seldom do I get the satisfaction of filling a notebook entirely up front and back with information, drawings, and important things. Someday, someday. This baby has 200 sheets. 200 x 2 = 400! That a little over a year. I suppose I should start a count down! Here is my first entry:

Which car battery does connecting cables damage?

Spurn= reject

ascetic= someone who practices self-denial

stipend= salary

inept= incompetent

inert= inactive

my favorite color is orange

                      but I like yellow too.

Viola! One page filled with useful and useless information! I hope I haven’t taken away the romaticism of this pursuit, but if I have, I apologize. I promise future posts will be more interesting. I just need to get into the flow, if you know what I mean, and first times are always a little awkward (that’s what she said).

Until next time!
