yeah, so like it’s been a long while since i’ve logged in here or even written anything at all vaguely non-school related. for a while i found that i didn’t have enough to say here and then when i did have lots to say i didn’t have time to say it. so yeah.
well, i finished school…on the 4th of june 2006 i will get my bachelor of education degree and be done with university – forever if i wish – though i may well go back and get my masters degree in a few years.
it’s been a long haul and loads of work and yeah…
this summer i’m going away for two weeks on the trip of a lifetime, after which nothing will ever be the same again and i’m excited and scared and anxious and thrilled and yeah, did i mention excited?
i leave on the 4th of july – which isn’t a big deal to me, being that i’m in canada, but it’s kind of an important date south of the border 😉
i’ve been writing a lot of poetry lately, and some of it i’ve been really happy with and i haven’t trashed and torn to bits, but the problem is there isn’t a community in which to post it, not really. the one that seemed to be kind of serious is pretty well dead and the one that isn’t dead is…well mostly crap, quite frankly. they don’t seem to see the difference between crap and quality and they don’t seem to want to see it … and well
i’m working on starting my own forum again – it’s been years since ninian’s poetry cafe closed but i miss having it, doing that …of course after my domain lapsed some cheesy company bought up my domain and they’ve been squatting on it for years – no website there just some stupid search engine…
i’m looking for quality places to submit my poetry and i think over the next year i’m going to make a concerted effort to get some published in a non-vanity press type way 😉
tired now…getting over a flu and i subbed today – weird to be getting paid for this work when i just finished doing it as a practicum but there it is…
currently listening to: daniel’s song – elton john
