10 things--topeka

Wow, Topeka. It was not a nice place. I felt dirty there. Here are my 10 things (albeit a little sarcastically).

1. I learned where the armpit of America is.
2. I became grateful for the revitalization of our downtown. Revitalization in downtown Topeka? Not so much.
3. I'm glad I didn't get a disease from the hotel I stayed in. At least I hope I didn't.
4. I learned that "luxury" means nothing in Topeka. The hotel was the "Senate Luxury Suites Hotel."
5. Said hotel is the self-proclaimed "best kept secret in Topeka." Good thing.
6. One interesting note is that Kansas has this weird toll road that goes across nearly the entire state. I paid $2 to drive about 45 miles.
7. The MD at my site there wrote a book about acid reflux. He gave me an autographed copy for free. Oh, the perks.
8. I appear to be popular with the bikers nationwide not just in Dallas.
9. I caught a slightly earlier flight home.
10. Come on, I can do ten...think! Um, the balcony was a nice respite from the room. The view was of the capitol. There was a storm abrewin' and it provided a cool breeze. There were no mosquitoes to bite me while I sat outside and read. And the storm didn't bring a tornado. Whew...that's ten.

I would have inserted a picture to proved the disgustingness of the hotel and one of the view if my computer hadn't died. My laptop battery is old and therefore keeps no charge at all. And now, just for fun, the spot where the plug inserts into the computer...it's broken. This is a dilemma. I could probably get it fixed but feel stupid sinking money into a computer when nowadays it's almost more worth it to buy a new one. But in 10 more months my company gives me a stipend for computer equipment. What timing. So not-so-great news to go with a not-so-great city.

Good thing you're not in Kansas anymore!

Har har!

I think it's cool you make these "10 Things" lists. Sometimes at dinner our family plays "Bad Thing, Good Thing", where each person has to tell a bad thing about their day and a good thing about their day (ending on the positive, of course!). Often my husband's bad thing is "I had to go to work" and his good thing is "I got to come home." Glad you are more eloquent than that!

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this[url="http://xanaxaxa.blogspot.com"].[/url] Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis[url="http://phenne.blogspot.com"],[/url] describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out[url="http://merrychristmascatalog.blogspot.com"].[/url] I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest[url="http://tramadol400.blogspot.com"],[/url] lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor[url="http://bigbreast2.blogspot.com"].[/url] A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over[url="http://ass0parade.blogspot.com"].[/url] I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write[url="http://naruto0xxx.blogspot.com"].[/url] A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
