Guitar is going better and better. I was finally able to play something for my girlfriend
I played Ben Harper's
"By My Side". The guitar makes my voice sounds better, I think, because she actually thought the whole thing sounded good. I am glad I have something I can do for her like that. It made me happy to see her watching me as I tried something new. She is the first person I sang in front of, for real (not kareoke drunkedness)
My wiki, The open Door
is up and "running". I hope it catches on, and becomes a good resource for writers. I will be sending out an email inviting people to add their works, thoughts, and comments to it later today or tomorrow. I hope to have it linked on the WRC
webpage soon. I will have to get to begging Brian for that later.
I applied for a job for the summer, working with Upward Bound
. If all goes according to plan, I will only have to work one month this summer and then be able to just relax for the rest. I found a house with a couple friends, and it should be a good summer (It had better be, it is my last summer as a free-from-daily-life-worry person). It will be nice to be able to work with Kids again. Even though I won't be at Camp Phillips, I still have that drive in me. I don't know what I would do for the summer if I wasn't working with helping people. I can't pump gas.
isn't going to poorly. I should have been done by now, of course, but they offer every class I need at the same time. It's not that bad a gig, I don't mind staying an extra year, as long as someone else is paying for it.
That's all for now. I know I have not been leaving quotes lately, so here's a new one for you:
