We're Tryin' to Sleep

I GOT RECOGNIZED FROM MY BLOG TODAY OMFG. Never thought that would happen. Hi Eleni De Castro! (: Uh does everyone hate me for not updating like I promised? Well school has kept my free time limited. I've had to write two short stories and read Grendel, which is actually really good! And I was sick yesterday and didn't leave the apartment. Wahhh. I went to Siren Music Festival on Saturday and it was so amazing! I got to see Surfer Blood, Pains of Being Pure at Heat, and Matt & Kim all for free out on Coney Island. I was at the very very front.... as in touching-the-fence front for Matt & Kim with my friends Lea, Leah and Carly. They were so amazing, and it's the first time I've seem them live. I touched Matt! And Kim came into the crowd and they did a cover of Biz Markie's Just a Friend and of Alice Deejay's Better Off Alone. Soooo good. Here are a mix of photos from a poetry reading my class had outside a while ago. You get to see my teacher eating a peach and Lea's tattoo and Gracie's tan lines...I have so many pictures on my camera I need to upload and one day you all are just going to get a huge photo post. No Siren pictures though, I was way to afraid to take my camera. Good thing too, because it would of died.

   A small story behind that fuzzy little bug. This caterpillar kept crawling on me when I was trying to write a modern poetic translation of a fourteenth century Scottish poem. At the half break we walked all the way across the lawn and set him on a flower, and by the last part of class he had crawled all the way back. We were amazed and everyone decided I was the little creature's mom. We were so sad to see him go but we put him on a tree and he disappeared into the leaves.
