Just the six.
There's this very, very popular blog that I'm sure most of you females read, as I do. It's called the Rockstar Diaries, and the author often writes "little letters" to different things/people. While it isn't exactly an essay, or my usual formatting at all, I've been writing letters to people in my mind a lot lately. It's kind of like tweeting, but better, and you get to say more if you want. It's also simpler, and not full of metaphors, although I am quite OK at the usage of metaphors.
Jenny's blog also does this letter-writing thing, in fact, it revolves completely around these letters. Emily wrote a letter to someone on her blog just the other week. People are really on to something with this whole idea.
So, I just have six today. And then I'm back on the longer-form bandwagon.
Leave me alone so I can study.
Dear College Algebra,
Please do not slaughter me next semester. Be gentle. I changed my major and I'm nervous, so please, be gentle.
Thanks for the money. Really.
I would like to move to where you are and live in your house with you and go thrift shopping like we talked about today. And I like your nose. But alas, I have to finish college and get on with my life and all that jazz. Unfortunately. Really unfortunately.
Dear Diet Coke and muddy buddies,
You do not make for a good singing voice, and I wish I hadn't eaten you all morning and then remembered that I have an audition tonight. But you were still delicioso.
The way your Celtic bracelet fits your right wrist makes me crazy for you. Were you thinking the same thing I was thinking about those little jellybean-eating boys on the row in front of us?
Does anybody else ever write little letters in their heads? If there are three female bloggers doing it, plus me, that means there are at least two hundred other people out there doing it. According to my calculations. Try it, it's rather fun.
