This is the second Day 25. I guess there are 25 days left now.

I don’t know about everyone else, but I am glad we are writing in class today. Getting started seems to be the hardest part for me.

I'm in the Vagina Monologues! Hooray! Vagina Vagina Vagina. Actually, as I was telling Rachel the other day, the V in V-Day actually stands for Violence and Victory as well as Vagina. I wish I could go to some of the other events, but I have play practice and class. You should all go, though, because last year it was pretty sweet. Especially the self-defense and the YogaChi. Serious. Lots of yelling and kicking and then lots of slow awesome energy movement. You should go. You. Go.

That's great information Abby. You are a very informative person. And passionate about V words.

I liked Mr. Peters little saying of "throw up and then clean up" I was in his creative writing class so i have heard this before, but it is so true. Our rough drafts, or atleast mine, are normally just a throw up of information and then you go in and clean it up after it is all down on the paper. Just think it is funny the way he puts it.

Thanks for giving us time to write in class today Mr. Peters. When you are stuck staring at the computer monitor for 50 minutes, you can’t do much other than put words on it. I think I’ll spend this evening throwing up on the monitor again.
