Today in class, when Dan was talking about Veterans Day, it reminded me of three incidents that happened to three of my relatives during three different wars. It will be your fault Dan, if my head explodes from all the ideas you have given me.

What if we dont really have a heros journey and life just kinda sucks in general? Because my life is seriously depressing.

Emily said...

i know exactly how arlene feels, nothing exciting has really happened to me, so im not sure what to do, i dont have much of an imagination either....
