Today, I embarked on the easiest project in the world. I used dictionary pages, old author cards from The Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild, and old shadow boxes that used to hang in the kitchen of our apartment.
Want to meet the gang?
Here’s Dorothy Parker, the hilarious lady who penned the phrase, “Boys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses.” She’s so funny—please read some of her poems and essays. You won’t be sorry.
Next, we have F. Scott Fitzgerald. I think we all know who he is. Doesn’t he look dapper?
Then, we have Henry David Thoreau. You know what I think is the most interesting thing about him? I read that Louisa May Alcott (Little Women) had a huge crush on him, and he would play songs for her on his flute. Looking at him, I wouldn’t take him to be such a Romeo.
It’s nice to have completed a little project today. I needed a win—I have been dealing with a serious case of hullabaloos today. It’s scary to think about the future. It’s hard to feel confused and discombobulated. And, finally, it’s hard to be an adult. That’s all I have to say for now.
If anyone has a manual for being a successful adult, I would love to read it. But, please make sure it has lots of pictures—I like to be entertained while I learn.
