Okay good. I named myself after a bottle of water and it wasn't until 6 months in when people called me "Crystal" I realized my name sounded like a crack whore which is like the opposite of who I am. But Breaking Bad is a good show that made it cool again.
This is ace, video on you tube asap.
i write some poetry now and again but im not very good at it. tends to lyrical and slanted and im much more suited to prose and narration. you should try and publish if youve got that kind of encouragement. i just dont know much about poetry or how to judge it but why not try. im surprised to see so many people praise an emulate a poet but not try it themselves.
A proper Emily Dickinson "expert" once compared two of my poems to that of Amherst's own after some poetry gala shindig in college. I think I died that day. From joy. Not that I want to write like her, but because Emily's writing is vibrant. I would have to say that was the highlight of my life. All I am now is a lowly housewife with two young sons and a secret desire to pack up a few of my belongings and start a new life in another country. I'll never be reborn as a poet again, but I'll never exist in this lifetime as one either.
Personally, I feel that any poem written after all the Greats that came prior to 1995 (I'm stretching it, too, since I haven't found any modern poets to really steal my heart or "dazzle my magpie brains"), is solely written as a journal entry forthe writer, in verse form. It's all been said and done before.
I'm having a tremendously miserable day.
If I send something from my laptop to the printer over the wireless bluetooth connection to be printed, I stand out of the way so the information doesn't get passed through my body. It would be twenty notices to turn off the water for an hour and tickets to concerts, but still I don't want that info scrambled into my intestines.
