Archive for the ‘Letters’ Category

If I were to write a letter, and would be unable to send it by such modern means as mail or by regular postal service, but instead would have to send it on horseback and perhaps by ship overseas, I would probably not keep the letter short. Spending so much time and energy as that on something so trivial as, say, a response in 100 words or less would be quite… inefficient; Wasteful, even. In these modern times, almost everything we do is supposed to be done quickly and efficiently. We are not to waste time, and not to waste words. Filling up pages upon pages with adjectives and various descriptions is for the writers, those set on publishing literature for those especially interested. It is not for those conversing, less they be seen as terribly romantic or even pretentious for wasting so much energy on something so time-consuming as the writing or the reading of what could be considered trivial matter for the rest of the world. No; unless you write for an audience of more than one (thus including everyone, should they care to give a damn), you are not to waste “our” time. Speaking of which, I am afraid I have lost my train of thought, thus wasting everyone’s time. Pardon.

Dear Thunderbug,

Good job with the poem ‘As I Walked Out One Evening’  by W. H. Auden.  You’re still missing a couple of lines here and there when put on the spot, but the whole thing is actually memorized now.  Have yourself another cup of tea, and don’t let Shakespeare’s Henry VI  get you so worked up.  You don’t have to finish it, just move along if it bothers you.

.

Just  FYI

 I`m writing this to myself.

My IRL names mean “Thunder” + “Grub”

Dear hairdresser (who is also a good friend of mine),
.
Thank you for being available to answer random questions I’ve got about hair styles all day, and THANK YOU for keeping me from getting bangs.  I still want them, but now I know why it would be the stupidest decision ever for me.  Well, I guess I`ll keep on dreaming.  But how about curls?  Could we try curls?

Still long-haired,
Yours Truly

Dear Self,
.
This is actually your first real vacation in two years.  Enjoy it while you can.  But! You are NOT allowed to bite your nails, and NO EXCUSES!  That’s what the big pillow in your face is for!  That, and to keep your fangirling squeals from waking up your new neighbor.  She does not understand why parts of certain Shakespearian plays make you so… unhinged.

Squeeing,
Me

Dear Brain,
.
Please stop exploding with joy every time you find a funny post on Tumblr, a hilarious tweet on Twitter, or an awesome video on YouTube.  Unless Shakespeare is involved, that is.  I could really use some of those things called braincells, yet you keep scattering them all over the place as soon as I do something enjoyable!  Could we not find a middle way where I get to have fun, and still retain the use of my little gray ones every once in a while?
.
Also, good work on the Macbeth soliloquies.  It seems that you are finally getting better at understanding instead of simply knowing.
.
Sincerely,

Me

Dear Brain,

Why do think it’s okay to never settle on anything?  Is there a reason why I can’t keep an interest in the same thing over a period of time without tiring and wanting to do something completely different?  When it’s about knitting and painting, that’s no problem at all.  But when it takes over my blogging, my school work AND my social life, then “Enough. Is. ENOUGH!” and I would kindly ask you to stop messing with my zen thing!

.

Faithfully,  Me

PS:  I have found out what the perfect weapon against you really is!  It’s a steady lack of sleep, and I really don’t wish to use it since it damages my body equally as much.  May I please  just get some good rest, without you pushing me into serious bipolarism?   This is getting ridiculous!
