moving + poetry

Oh nooo, my arms are going to hurt so bad tomorrow XD;. Heavy lifting + M = bad.

My mom came up to my dorm today, and now I'd say about 70% of my stuff is moved out. It's way too easy to accumulate stuff, I've found out in my years of living in these dorms ^^;. It's really helpful that she took a carload of stuff back to her house for me, though, as I definitely would not have been able to take all my stuff back in my little Ford Escort ^^;. My dad said he would come get a carload too if I needed it before Thursday, so maybe I won't have to haul hardly any of my own stuff back ^o^.

Ah, seeing my room so bare makes me sad, though. Dorm life is depressing to me, as I'm constantly moving all my earthly possessions every few months, it seems. Bleh. Oh well.

I'll be back living at my parents' house for the summer after this Saturday... crap >.<;. I shall hope for not too much bickering to occur ^_^.

I turned in my final poetry portfolio for my Creative Writing - Poetry class today, so hopefully that'll go over with the teacher okay. I don't know that my poetry is exactly high caliber, but I have a lot of fun writing it ^_^. As an example of the weirdness I've turned in, here's a little... umm, thing I've dubbed "ANTS":

ANTS
by Mちゃん

I have always wondered what
the ants of Southern Missouri would
be capable of if only every time I saw
them, I didn't smash their palatial
dreams underfoot.

Despite possibilities of greatness,
my shadow is still the harbinger of
death, as I crush hopes, dreams,
lives every time.

It's too bad I hate ants.

So stupid XD.

*goes to flop down on the couch, as her arms are much too dead from carrying too many worldly possessions*

Oh but you can't forsake worldly possessions! ^___^;; They're too wonderful to give up I'm sure. I just turned in my portfolio too for my creative writing - fiction class. Too bad I have a little over a month to go. *flails* I hope you enjoy your summer. Don't fight too much? ^^;;

About how many pages of writing did you have to turn in for your portfolio o.o? Or do you not have requirements like that when turning it in? I remember in my creative writing class last semester, I was in a huge panic trying to scrape together enough pages, and ended up turning in some of my fanfics XD.

I'll do my best to not fight with my mom ^o^. I love her, but how can I put this nicely... her voice makes me want to claw my face until it's bloody at times? She gets just as annoyed at me for the stuff I don't say, as I get mad at her for the stuff she does say, so I guess it's even XD;.

Actually we have this tacky portfolio contest thing, since the prof said she doesn't want students to panic and make it all pretty. And we just have to turn in all the stories we've written that we've turned in once (which has her comments on them) according to a table of contents that she typed out. Pretty laid-back. ^^ *luffs her prof*

Poor M-sama. *clings to you* Hopefully you'll bond slightly on Mother's Day? XD;;

My poetry teacher this semester was pretty awesome-- he's all "just throw whatever you've got into a folder and turn it in, as long as there's at least 8 poems." So I did, and for the first time, I turned in more than the bare minimum required XD.

Actually, my mother is gone on this mother's day (today, I do believe?) ^^;. I did call her and wish her a happy mother's day, though. And got her a gift certificate to a clothing store she liked, and sent it with my dad who went with her, so he could give it to her today. Did you do anything with your mom today ^^?

That's how it was. XD With all the stuff that I have to do now... I'm actually behind with two short stories for my class. T_____T *must write later or tomorrow at least!*

Well my parents and I went shopping and later I got her Picture Puzzle by Life Magazine. She enjoys doing that. X333 *squishes her*
