It wasn't too bad, though: once home, I wrote to Ms. Peterson, Priya's amazing English teacher and my longtime mentor and friend. Their class is starting Shakespeare next week, so I thought I'd send her the 9 sonnets I've written and the stories behind each of them. I've posted the poems here, but to hear the stories, you'll have to ask me yourself! (Please know that I wrote some of these when I was much younger and not as metrically inclined! Wait, who am I kidding? I'm still a failure when it comes to scansion.)
After this, I did some work to help Vera make gift tags for SBY's Angel initiative, which helps make the holidays memorable for at-risk youth in DC.
|Gotta love word clouds.|
I now attempt to finalize my plans for this weekend before it's time for dinner. Let's hope I'm well enough for work tomorrow!
