Everyday Inspiration; Day 13: Play with Word Count

In all honesty, I really didn’t want to do this particular assignment and was planning to bash on the English teachers I had going to high school here in Washington. Despite the lack of English Education I received from the Bellevue School District in high school, I know they, the teachers tried or at least I hope they tied to the best of their abilities.

But that gave me another idea. An idea I actually remembered having to do with my two junior high (special education) teachers in seventh and eighth grades. It was required in California that ALL junior high and middle schoolers had to have some form of paper on word count. It was up to the teacher they would do it. I heard horror stories about kids needing to do 1,000 word essay’s. That freaked me out and it wasn’t even any of my teachers assigning that to me. Any way Special Ed English teachers had us do our word count papers on writing a certain type of poem known as a Haiku. I remember my first haiku I wrote in seventh grade. It was:

Fine I’ll Write It

by Gertie

Being forced to do

a number thing with English

paper does suck shit

I may have not been exactly what my teacher was looking for or principle for that matter, I still got an A+ on it as I did what I was asked to do and did it correctly. Plus it gave the teachers something to laugh about or at least that is what I was told. I did get best poem award for a seventh grader.


Happy Friday

Good Morning, World!!! I am off from work today yet I woke up at five o’clock in the morning. Wish I could have slept longer but the sleep I got was restful. It’s always a good thing to get restful sleep.

Since I was up so early a neighbor of mine who is a good friend goes out to breakfast every Friday so I asked if I could join him for breakfast. He said yes so we went out to breakfast. I had biscuits and gravy while my friend had was is called the Seattle omelet. It was cool hanging out with this friend.

Since I don’t have anything to do today since I don’t have to work; I signed up for an extra volunteer shift at PAWS Cat City. So I will be volunteering for a few hours today. I love volunteering and seeing cats get their furrever home.

On that note I’ve been doing some art work since waking up as well as after breakfast with a friend. I’ve been coloring the poster for my mom. In fact I plan on coloring after my volunteer job as well. I love doing art work.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you all for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciative from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great weekend ahead. Happy Friday and Peace Out, World!!!
