How on earth did you manage that. Life shut down around here. Totally...they could barely drag me into the kitchen to cook and I never bothered eating!

Guess it was easier to sneak that than a giant tome around. I, too, have written on the job. Under the noses of my busy students.  shhhh. Thank heavens for that minimze button.  :yes:

No kidding.  I was going to try to get the book into work, but I had nowhere to hide it.  Flash drives are much skinnier.

psst..let me let you in on a little secret, Chelc... some of us grown ups? We never actually grew up.
Okay..I can only speak for myself. I am the exact same person I was at 16, except i like myself a whole lot more.

Haha, alright, that's comforting to be honest. Becuase I've been getting rather depressed lately thinking about how I only have 2 more years of High School. I don't really want to leave and go out into the "real world" or whatever. I'm not good with change  :sick1:

Yeah, unfortunately you're right, Chelc.  You'll never have it as good as you do now, so enjoy it while you can.  If you get publishe and become an author while you still live at home, how cool would that be??  It's funny that you would say that, too, justwrite, because I have always thought that I was mentally about 16.  Don't even get me started on my action figure collection...  Patrick can vouch that it's true!

That's a little high, isn't it?

Not if you met my son. He's sixteen and right now he's asking me if I heard about a guy who used cheese for the wheels of a car as I was trying my best to ignore him. I think I have a new best friend for you, Loth.

I would say I'm mentally about seventeen in my approach to creativity. But way less angsty. And way WAY WAYYYYYYY tougher then I was back then.

Yeah, the real world sucks if you get stuk doing something you hate. Which is why I hide out in academia with all the other nuts like me who call themselves grownups. i work in a department full! Students roll their eyes at us.

This is WAY off topic, huh?

Maybe you should start a thread for REALLY dumb conversations about nothing, Patrick.  :up:
