Stream-of-consciousness writing can really help to clear your head and quickly expel negative emotions (at least, in my opinion it does). Try it sometime when you don't have the time to throw a big tantrum and be upset for most of the day.

Usually when I do a SoC entry, I either don't post it, or post it as private, so only I can see it. But today, I'll let you in on my angst so you can see my thought-process and understand how SoC kind of works. At the beginning of the grammatic monstrosity that is to follow, I was annoyed and a bit miffed. Now I'm calmer and ready to go do whatever it is Mom wants me to do. Sometimes we just have to expel vast amounts of emotional ranting, and SoC writing is great for that because it doesn't give anyone the chance to interrupt you and upset you further. I find it also helps to straighten my thoughts out so that when I do need to discuss them with someone, I can express them in an intelligent manner that they'll understand. :)



A run-on sentence in an English major's blog! Heavens forbid!! )

So the next time you're upset and don't want to be interrupted in your rant, try this and feel better, because....it's better than just sitting there and stewing. (Yes? No? Please tell me I don't sound preachy....is this even helping you guys, or did I just put my emo angst rant up for nothing? ...I really want to proofread my SoC sentence now XD )

Several things....FIRST click here--------> clicky! ) for some BIG news.

That means I can drive you to school now Kayla.

NEXT: not so good news.

I have a job. At the college. In the Counselor's Office. In Marketing. That means that I basically sit around folding brochures whilst allowed to do NOTHING ELSE. So I sit. Folding Brochures. In the quiet. In a very comfortable chair. In which I start to doze. Until the girl above me walks in and is all like, "Are you okay? (freak)" And I have to be like "Yeah just restin' me eyes." Except today. NO...today had to be different Today I got to run around the skull putting fliers up in the restrooms. And on really high up bulletin boards. And tables. And little plastic sleeve-y things. All. Over. Campus. In heels. Because I had assumed that the stack of 1000+ fliers that I had not finished yesterday would be there today. But they weren't. Because the girls at the front desk got bored. And decided to fold them. And they apparently have the super power to fold thousands of fliers at break-neck speed. And I was tired. Because I was up at 5. To wait in line for 3 1/2 hours. At the f****** DPS office. Just so I could do my road test before English started. But I ended up missing English anyways. Because I HAD to do it today. And the only time available was at 10:30. 15 minutes before my class. So I was tired. And pissed off. In heels. Walking around campus. Touching things I do not normally touch. Only to return to the tiny little room that is the Marketing Department of the Counseling Office to wait. And wait. And wait some more. Because apparently Mishell had NO IDEA that I was actually going to require the fliers and posters if I was to put them up as per her orders. And the printer works slower than me trying to figure out a recipe. Oh yeah--I forgot the posters of DOOM. 'Nough said. I hate them. And I'm still not done with the fliers.

ALSO ON LABOR DAY I HAD INTERACTIONS WITH GEESE. IT WAS KEWL, YO.

Am considering picking up a humanities course on lit/society/other humanitarian type things from the Renaissance period on. Because my schedule is too easy. In English we are learning how to write sentences. In Dev of the MP we watch movies. In Precalc he just cracks bad jokes the whole time. In history I am learning the same thing I've learned every year since first grade. I feel not busy enough.

Found a cool thingy online that was printable for my Bethy. Am angry because Sophie has one of my books that she never intends to read nor return. Am embarrassed because Ben went all vegan-animal smart on me and now feel like an idiot. Am TIRED because was up at FIVE O'CLOCK TODAY--AN UNGODLY HOUR.

Seriously, no higher being (who/whatever you do (not) worship) gets up before the sun does. That is why the sun is rising. Because (insert name of higher being here) is getting up for the day. Therefore: I should not have to get up before the sun or (higher being's name) does. Can I get a few "Yeas" here?

MECH. But I am tired so I am going to bed. GOOD NIGHT.

ALSO will write letters to Ben, Keri, Beth, Kim, et al. TOMORROW. OR NOT.

GOOD NIGHT.
