    How come characters in stories need to have some sort of an epiphany or change or realization by the end of the story. I don't need to make them have some sudden realization...maybe they just want to keep on doin what they're doin and they don't realize anything until 5 years later, which is not where I'm goin with my story...yeah the characters are changing, but it doesn't have to be the focus of the story. Why do people always want this? Do you have sudden epiphanies in your life every week...cause that's how much time has passed in my story. Le sigh. Readers are silly...you don't need something BIG to happen for it to be a great story...really, you don't. /rant Edit: Yeah I just change the whole last 5 pages of my story. Characters wanted to go elsewhere. *******s. Too much wine.

    Congrats on the job and the "adult-like life" :silly: Edit: You should invite ES to your bar, we'd do a good job promoting it Are you watching Mike and Mike in the Morning by any chance? I just laughed out loud at that commercial...but why is it illegal? Guess I was too busy laughing to notice anything else. I mean, it can hold a bowling ball!

    14? Impressive. Clementines are delish though The first draft of my paper was supposed to be 7-8 pages, mine ended up being 10. My professor then wrote 8 suggestions of what I should add to it...it's gonna end up being 15-16 pages at least and it only needs to be 12. So much extra work I have to do now. Oh well, guess it can't hurt to have another over-achieved, well-written Lit paper...I guess. I like when I use terrible grammar/punctuation when talking about Lit papers. They really are much better than my internet speak :silly: And now that sounds so shallow compared to what you are going through G.A.C.O.L.B - I am so sorry about your Grandma. My Grandpa passed from it too...just so terrible/difficult that they suffer so much, as well as everyone who has to watch the disease take over (I mean that in a non-selfish way, but we are left so helpless). It's just awful. Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

    Thanks I'm literally leaving the day after graduation though cause it's so close to Christmas haha...I know I'm gonna miss Blacksburg sooo much, but I think after 6 years of being here on and off, I'm ready for a change. But I know I'll be back to visit a lot haha also, my horse is staying in Cburg for a while til I find her a farm near home, so I have an awesome excuse to come down here It sure is gonna be weird/sad not living here though.

    That picture sums up the drill field perfectly. 20mph winds, rain, 35 degrees? Typical day in Blacksburg.

    DFIJioFJGOIJRGIJRGIJ My creative writing professor wrote that certain aspects of my paper are "brilliant," "powerful," and "compelling," and that I have "a flair for dialogue." I am on cloud 9. She said she hopes I revise it for my portfolio. And Cooley is a Skin again. I love today.

    I'm an English major doing the creative writing option and the literature option. Writing stories/papers = my life. I wrote my eleven page creative writing story last "night" from about 3am-9am. Then went straight to the library to print it out and edit it some more. I e-mailed it to my prof at about noon thirty...I had an appointment with her at 1:45. I like writing under pressure as long as I know I'll have time to edit it a few times before it's due. My 15-20 page story is due the week after Thanksgiving break. Other groups have to turn theirs in before break and they were ****ing about how we get an extra week. Yeah, cause I'm totally gonna be writing my story over break. This literary analysis paper is just psyching me out though. I turned it in early and she said it was a C+ paper so I get to edit it and turn it in for a higher grade, but for some reason my mind has been convinced that this paper is the devil. I think I'm freaking out that since the original wasn't good, the final draft won't be good. It's due at 9:30, I'm sure I'll really get on a roll around 6. Before these two papers, I'd been doing really well and staying ahead of my work - it's surprisingly less stressful And I hate writing conclusions. If you read my ****ing paper, you should know what my conclusion is 3am ramblings. I've got no problem spouting off words on ES, but God forbid I face this paper. This lack of sleep is really getting to me.

    The commissioner part about the collusion in the beginning was absolutely hilarious...and mocking the Cowboys website. Taco is the funniest character for sure. I love this show.

    I need to go to bed, but Gladiator is on. Now I will never know what happens! :silly: My boyfriend and I introduced our parents at the tailgate this weekend. Our dads already know each other (have known each other before my boyfriend and I even met :silly:), their companies work together a lot, but regardless, it was a fun time

    I wear jerseys whenever, too...also sometimes in the offseasons haha. Being able to fit in kids jerseys is nice. I don't think the fitted women's ones look like they would fit that well. It doesn't bother me when I see guys in jerseys on non gamedays, either. Isn't this a thread somewhere or am I just nuts?

    Oh I'm obsessed with psychological issues, that's why I wanna do the crime fiction, but with an emphasis on why the "bad guys" do what they do. It's fascinating. I love Criminal Minds. And yeah, ES hasn't been workin well all day. It keeps making me think it's 4am :silly:

    Thanks. It's nice to know I'm not the only one I wanna write crime fiction so it's not gonna be rainbows and daisies and I think I'm kinda struggling to accept how in the heck my mind came up with something so disturbing haha...then I thought about Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and now my story seems tame.

    I just submitted a really dark short story about a woman in an abusive relationship to my creative writing class. Now I'm concerned it's a bit too violent, a bit too intense and to honest and vulgar. It's getting critiqued on Wednesday so I guess I'll find out...don't need all my peers (/distinguished professor) thinkin I'm totally ****ed up in the head. Edit: I like it though so I guess it doesn't really matter... Too much wine tonight.

    Yessss, got my Skins tat fixed up yesterday! It had faded so much and some of it looked almost pink and yellow, but now it looks awesome again. Behind the ear is a pain in the ass though...no glasses or sunglasses for two weeks, but totally worth it!

    I said that to my mom yesterday. He doesn't look so much like a walrus anymore. I do feel for him and his family, what a heartbreaking situation.

    I'm excited for fantasy football wooo...I just haven't decided which leagues I'm doing yet haha I've committed to one, but have to choose between a few others. I definitely won't have time to do more than 2 or 3 with my last semester coming up. Good thing I have a 2 week break til fall semester starts so I can get back to letting football consume my life. Anyway, my random thought was...how does one go about designing a bathroom? I have all of these awesome ideas but don't know where to start. I know some things that I want but I want to see it all together. I told my boyfriend I was just going to pick it out on Sims :silly:

    He also went to Chick and Ruth's in Annapolis. Nuts. I watched season one and most of season 2 of Always Sunny yesterday. The marathon continues as I continue to have an immense amount of schoolwork to do.
