Midnight Musings with Miss Dickinson

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you--Nobody--too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! They'd advertise--you know!


How dreary--to be--Somebody!
How public--like a Frog--
To tell one's name--the livelong June--
To an admiring Bog!

Some days I honestly feel like Nobody. But then, I realize I will always be Somebody to Someone. No one is ever alone. Whether it is your family, your friends or your belief in God that keeps you going, you are never alone.

Cool.

I still admire Emily Dickinson's spunk, though. Her views on life and love are so right, and yet they baffle because she hardly ever left her house. How did she know so much? Reading her reminds me of my seventh grade English teacher, Ms. Graviet. She pretty much rocked. Ms. Graviet was practically a kid herself, and understood us kids completely. Some may call her airheaded, but I say she is a creative dreamer/idealist.

I have no idea where this post is going. I just wanted to sharpen my writing skills because let's face it: after two years of writing news, my creative pencil is a little dull.

Today, after much anticipation, the back issues of the magazine I want to write for soon arrived. I'm in a class where we write feature stories and actually send them in to magazines to see if they'll get published. Scary! Anyway, this particular magazine took forever to get here, and I was scared it would be late and I'd get an F on my assignment. Thank goodness it's finally here!

Well, I guess I'll go to bed now. I'm low on sleep; I thought I was like this normally, but apparently I'm not.
