Okie Dokie first post of 2016, I have been working seriously on myself and it honestly has not been amazingly easy. I was mislead by a simplified list, 15 steps that would be my soul search. I have been distancing from some, growing closer to others, cleaning and sorting and most of all trying to stick to my word.
In the process of cleaning my room (Step 5 organize my life) I found tons of things that I wrote years ago, some had purpose with labels, my old geometry or health ed notebook. but some were completely random scraps and they had the most meaning to me. This week I will be putting up a short blurb that I wrote in 6th grade for a free write assignment. It is nothing extraordinary but I think it is cute and shows a writing process that I had nine years ago.
My Missing Books
Once on an average weekend in September my family went to Bay Head. I took my school work with me but managed to lose it.
I though “Where could it be?” In the messy cluttered house, the car or did I leave it in my locker? I had no idea.
I said “I hope it’s in the car. ” So i decided to look there first. soon my mother brothers and I were whipping things into bags, food , garbage and toss out. Sadly I was not there it was not there. not even hidden under the car seats.
I started to cry, feeling the tears rolling down my face slowly dribbling. all was going blurry. All I could think was i could fail Language Arts.
Later that night we found it on the living room table. I was very happy I was jumping for joy. A free write assignment and I knew exactly what to write about.
So there are scraps of what I wrote all those years ago that are still extremely relevant today. and on the note of TBT I want to put up a video of my brother who helped me in the story. He wraps for hobby and there is referencing me and my job. The song is called milestone by Gently Violent and the link is posted below. I hope you enjoy .
