Emily Dickinson?

September 12, 2009

3rd of September, 2009

I got the poetry book I was supposed to get before today, and I was reading about Emily Dickinson so today I learned a bit about her life. It’s so interesting. She liked to keep to herself most of the time, and she was quite philosophical. I never knew anything about her and I never read a poem of hers, but I liked the ones I read today. The rhythm of her poems are like the poems I write. We’re one in the same. Kidding, but I do like her. We’re quite similar in some ways from what I read.

Princess Diana and Poetry

September 12, 2009

31st of August, 2009
Princess Diana died on the 31st of August, 1997. I never knew the date. I always thought it was around Halloween because I have a vague memory of coming out of my house all set to go trick-or-treating (I must have been quite young because my mum stopped letting me go trick-or-treating for a few years because she thought it was demonic and satanic and the like) when I heard people talking about it on a the radio in one of the neighbors’ cars. That was the first I’d heard of it, as far as I know.
I also learned today that I bought the wrong poetry book for school, which starts tomorrow. Fuck sake. It was written on the booklist and everything and I still managed to get a completely different one that doesn’t even have a similar name, or look anything like the book I was supposed to get. What a tool I am.
