High School Revisited

In High School, I wrote quite a lot of English poems. Ever since Junior High School, I started writing this small journal book in English. Why? One reason was that I wanted to practise my English. I wrote the journal also with plenty of acronyms (esp. about those guys I had a crush on HA HA) so that if my parents or somebody else happened to find the book, they wouldn't really understand what or who I was talking about he he he he...That was also the second reason why I wrote plenty of poems. I could use symbolisms and disguise my real content.

I'll never forget the time when one of my classmates asked me to write poems for him to give to his girlfriend. We were on our first grade in High School back then. I was SO pleased, so I did my very best to write a love poem in English he he he he he...Why? Because the girlfriend was a very intelligent girl (she was always the top three in her class) and her English was GREAT, so I had to write the poems well. Otherwise that just wouldn't do, would it?

I don't remember anymore if I wrote more than one love poem for him, but what mattered most was that he had asked ME to write it for him. :-)))) It was such an honour!

What happened to the couple? They eventually broke up. Now the girl's got two kids already and the guy's still not married, though he's in a relationship. :-))))

A few days before my wedding day (after Arttu arrived in Bandung), I gave my journal book to him so that he could read "my soul". :-)))) He had fun reading it and he asked me some of the acronyms and symbolisms the next day he he he he he he he...

Now that journal's here at home, safe in the cabinet. And my current journal is this blog of mine...I'm sharing my soul with all of you...I no longer need to write poems, since I want you to understand who I am, where I came from, and why I'm who I am...

  3. When I was in high school, I use to write poems too. But now, I only write blogs ;0 But I missed the high school days, it was so fun.

  4. Make Money Now: So you used to write poems, too? Interesting!!! :-)))) I know what you mean about school days. They were the "easy" days where we could have fun without a care in the world ha ha ha ha ha...

  5. I recently uncovered a talent a rhyming talent I wasn't aware I had and it grew into another blog called Whattville is on the Other Side of the Tracks

    I enjoy it since it gives me an easy way to express myself.
