    Print everything. Tack it to a wall. Pick up a dart. Close your eyes. Throw the dart.

    Scene chosen.
    There is a 99%* chance your question about writing could be answered if you tried writing.
    *not a real statistic

    That sounds like a good idea

    Trying to get at least halfway through The Two Towers today. Hopefully I'll finish by the weekend.

    two days ago i figured out how to fix the ending of UZ!!!While in class no doubt. Although i'm trying to get my MC's hands only slightly dirty, and i'm worried there stepping in a little too much. I was intending this to be a domino effects were all the bully's take each other down with Sam and Alex only stepping in a little to push them in the right direction of each other. Anyone want to hear the take down plot and see if there stepping in too much???

    Yesterday I forgot how old I am for a minute. This happened:

    Me: "I don't have my ID with me. I mean, I'm 18--"
    Friend: "Aren't you 19?"
    Me: "...Oh my god you're right."

    ETA: Sure, Ally

    I actually do that all the time! I'm almost 22 and i keep saying that i'm 20. Guess its just wishful thinking. Doesn't help that every time i go to the movies someone cards me, because they think i'm no older then 16.

    When i was up at Will's brothers for the weekend we went to a bar for food, because his brother and friend were getting a beer sampler, we were all carded, he looked at me and Will's cards and was like "Well either you guys look really damn young for your age, or these are be best damn fake ID's I've ever seen." Had to ask his co-worker to look at our ID's because they couldn't believe we were 21. Funny part is we weren't even drinking!!!

    ...Why? It's just swearing. We read stories with swearing and sex and worse in my creative writing class all the time.

    It's amazing how fast Kony 2012 is trending. I watched the video this morning, and decided to share it on Facebook because I thought nobody had probably heard about it here, and it turned out a few of my friends had already shared.

    I have trouble remembering how old I am, too. For some reason I keep thinking I'm 19 (I won't be for four more months).

    I won't turn 20 until the end of this year. Sometimes I feel young, then I find a bunch of kids who have no idea what a VCR or Gameboy is and say nevermind.
