I finally started writing again. And not writing in my livejournal or writing in my diary or writing down one of the eighteen million phone messages that comes in for Karen every hour and a half. I started actual writing for an actual portfolio of sorts. It is about time I got started doing this.

Yesterday I filled up four pages but unfortunately I only have about five usable sentences-- the remainder of the space is filled up with things that I wrote and crossed out. I used up a fourth of a pen crossing these things out throughly enough so that no one will ever read them. I thought about just forgetting the whole notebook idea and typing the whole thing on Microsoft word, but I don't really want to spend the whole day writing on the computer. I'd rather spend the whole day checking my e-mail and playing Snood on the computer.
I almost wish I didn't have a computer.


Poll #157423 But if I didn't have a computer, I couldn't make polls.

What would I do if I didn't have a computer?

Buy a computer.
