A Writing Exercise From School 1981

Core group
Dinah Sanders

I don't want to write about rain, so I won't. [Yeah, I was a pretty pigheaded young girl.] I want somebody to spend time with. I'm tired of being alone. It doesn't have to be a boyfriend, although that would be nice. I'm tired of spending all my time by myself, at home, with Jinx and Paul [my parents].

It would be so nice to have someone to hold, to whisper to in class, to go out with.

It seems like people expect me to want to be by myself.

[In retrospect, and certainly when I read things like this, I think it would have been better for me to have gone to public school for my junior and senior years of high school. I would have thrown fits about being forced to do it, but it would have been really good for me to have been in a school of over 1000 people instead of one of 80.]

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
