It is now... *checks watch*... 2:11am, and I have just finished my 8 page creative short story that is due today.

It's about a down-trodden coffee shop worker-- go figure XD;. It's not me 100%, as I tried to make her a bit more ignorant of all the fancy coffee terminology, and even more harassed by customers than I (that's possible?).

I just... want to get this turned in, and get the workshopping over with on Friday. I'm going to get ripped a new one in the class workshop, I just know it, but at the moment I don't really care. BECAUSE I AT LEAST HAVE THE STORY DONE, YAAAA~Y XD;.

I have drank so much coffee though, in order to stay semi-clear headed while writing, sleep is probably beyond me tonight ^^;.

-----------

On a happier note, I found out earlier that the 4th Phoenix Wright (or now Apollo, is it?) game is coming out today, on the 20th ^_^. *will have to go to Gamestop to see if they have it in stock yet, after Creative Writing class*

I loved my creative writing class. The teacher seemed to think of me as some kind of genius, so if I wasn't inspired, I'd write something the night before and still get 90+. If it weren't for the grammar sheets which she made purposefully hard to be spiteful because she was vehement against how little grammar is taught, I would have gotten a truly disgusting mark in that course.

But, considering some of t he 200 lvl uni works I've had to edit, I guess to some extent the fact that I could write something that was interesting and didn't have grammar and spelling errors probably already put me above the class

(if this all makes me sound prickish it's because it's very early, I've had no sleep, and I haven't had enough caffiene yet >> )

It must be nice being thought of as a genius XD. Are you an English major, or did you just take the class for fun ^_^?

I knoooow-- I wonder why people turn in stories with such horrible grammar sometimes o.O;. I would be so embarrassed if I turned in something like that -.o;.

(you don't sound prickish, don't worry XDD)

I'm not an English major, because I hate dissecting books. I took the class in highschool, for fun. I thought it might improve my writing, but it appears my writing was already beyond the level expected by the course ^^'

I hate dissecting books, but I can mull over a good poem for hours XD. *is a dork like that*

Eh, even though your writing was already at the upper level your teacher could expect, nothing improves your writing more than... WRITING! So I'm sure it helped in some way XD.

*doesn't want to put her password in at school, but it's her*

of course it helped int hat way, but it didn't help anymoer than, say, writing on my own. but at least it wasa class to wriet in rather than a class to class in.

YAAAAAAAAAAAY M-SAMA I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT! I HOPE YOU REWARD YOURSELF PROPERLY AFTER ALL THIS IS DONE! *hugs* And I swear that writing about your workplace is the best thing ever. XD Some guy in my creative writing class wrote about his job in a bookstore.

"I thought that by being in a bookstore, people would actually be able to, you know, *read*. No."

And there's a part where someone was asking him where the magazines were and he pointed to the shelves behind her. She goes, "But those say "Periodicals."

*so much facepalm* XDDD

For having finished my last story, my reward IIIISSSSS~S--

Thinking about the next story I will have to write!

Wait, that's not a good reward ^^;. OH WELL. It must be done. I still don't know what to write about though... *needs to sit down and brainstorm sometime soon*

That's my thought pattern for literature. I'm done with one story but I have to go read the next on the syllabus. OTL

OTL... OTL... OTL... What does this mean??? I've seen it all over my f-list lately, but I've been puzzled every single time XD.

*needs to catch up on more internet abbreviations*
