Jon?

I hit the HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGH WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY.. makin' money the FLYYYYYYYYYYY WAAAAAAAAAAAY.. But there's gotta' be a BETTER WAY -- BETTER WAY-- YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
Wednesday. 7.23.08 12:45 am
I got a writing assignment back from a High School English teacher with one critique: “find your voice.”


I scoffed.

At the time, I figured all I needed was an opinion. All I had to do was enumerate my thoughts with my keyboard and my voice would shine through these alphabetical equations.


I was wrong.


In order to have a voice, you need a story to tell. To have a story to tell, you gotta’ play the game. And as my coaches would say, “pain is part of the game, ladies. If you’re scared… go play Madden.”


Milton Bradley isn’t God in this game of Life, so I fear that my Coaches sentiments are true: “If you don’t win, you ain’t shit,” ‘cause… I’m not sure how to win.

Good jews dont typically like Glade, but they like to not buy expensive things.

Simple as that. :]

Not really! I know a lot of hispanic Jew
I live near Miami and my parents were born in Cuba.
My great-grandparents left Poland and Turkey for various types of freedom..
SO thats how it happened.


You arent the first I've had to explain this to, Dilated.

I happen to like your voice very much! And it's apparent... so does that mean you're winning?

And, refer to the entry below the entry you commented for an explanation of what happened to my dad. I would link it, but I'm kinda not sure how I'd go about doing that, I dunno if html works in comments.

Well hey, I can try it out.

Click?

Oh it worked, spiffy.

I don't understand.
You have a really STRONG voice. o.o

Thanks but no thanks; I think I'll stick with my semi-cleaning since school is on the horizon. x.x

Jon, you win everything else. Ever.

Basically, we win all the same things. Which is everything.



Might I ask why you love my grammar so much?

its no big difference, after I wake up. I now want to get out from this place, stay over at my friend's place for a couple of days or something.

Haha thanks. That's a terrific compliment coming from you. I'm a bit of a grammarnerd as well.

What happened to "it's not always about winning?" Jeez. :S
» randomjunk on 2008-07-24 01:39:29

teachers can be such a pain! I won't say dislike but I don't quite agree with what some teachers do, especially commenting something like "find your voice".

PS: I never get AIM back. :[ You should use MSN!
» bananaface on 2008-07-24 01:12:03

Because I don't have my own computer anymore and my dad is totally anti-AIM. He thinks it's the reason my computer crashed in the first place.

Not a beard exactly, i guess if I was mail it would be the start of a beard, like peach fuzz, but occasionally some of the hairs are stubborn. Every girl has them, most shave and don't complain cause its embarrasing, but i can do it here cause no one can see me (so to speak)
