Starting to Remember

April 24, 2009

Hey, people who are searching for “Swiss Chalet” on google! I am really entertained by how this page apparently accounts for, like, 30% of my traffic. Thanks for stopping by, even if only for that image I got from google image search too! (Take a look around, if you want? I’d appreciate the stranger lovin’.)

I wanted to use this blog as a space to share and recount/write down some of my past stories, going with the whole “binary memory” thing from the first post. I’m still not entirely sure how I’d like to structure this, and things will likely be missing, but let’s try, hmm? A couple might be more boring than others, sadly, though I’ll at least try and include some good ones with the ones that aren’t as good. I want to do a lot of these over time, too, besides the damn walk story, haha–it’s a story I tell all the time and/or use in application essays about when I took a walk around Charleston with a homeless man when I was ten or so. I just tell it way too much–gotta start remembering them all. (I’ll put it up here sometime, at least. Just not yet. And/or you can just ask and I’ll probably tell you, anyway. :B) But enough of that. Let’s talk about Switzerland.

Finally, some writing! This one is a bit rough, but I like it a lot so far. It’s a strange one for me to start writing on this blog with–the structure of the poem is pretty strange for me, and I tend to not be directly personal in my poetry, though I suppose I’m trying to open up a bit here, anyway! Structurally it’s based on a book (my favorite, actually!), which I’ll put in the comments in case you’d prefer to guess or not know.

Click on each image to see the full resolution (and much prettier) version. I’d like to figure out how to stop it from crunching them. Eh. :/ Click the title of the post or “Archives” at the top of the page to see them all a little bit better (Another thing I need to fix!)

Fun facts: The fourth picture is Will Shortz speaking at a Brown University crossword puzzle competition. I didn’t compete, sadly (more of a Nonogram person, myself.) Also, I seriously can’t remember where the fifth one is from. SciLi table, maybe?

PS: I lurv feedback~~ <3

Warmly,

I’m walking past a guy today on a Thayer sidestreet. He’s wearing some kind of trench coat, and upon further inspection, he’s holding a Dragon Ball Z DVD close to his chest. He looks at me with sudden suspicion, pushes the rather illegal looking DBZ DVD under his jacket, and hastily walks on by.

…Reminds me of middle school!

This past Saturday I had to get up for a king house thing at 8 o’clock (Getting up before noon on a saturday morning? What kinda college kid….?) and, in classic Will style, slept through my alarm and woke up thirty minutes before I was supposed to be at the house.
