I just got out of bed a bit ago. I was up until four or five or six, I am not really sure. I do know that all that was on television was a bunch of info-mercials, and the station identification symbols. I think I watched television for about twenty or thirty hours yesterday. It was all I was capable of doing. Today I have to get this project either worked on, or out to some other people. Ouch, I had a little something in my eye, and my pillow went flat. I know those two things didnt have anything to do with each other, but the simple fact that they both caused my body pain. So I put them together, and now I have spent the last few sentences writing about them. This is ridiculous. I spend all of this time writing about things, and they end up being, that I am writing about, writing about getting something caught in my eye. There has to be something more. I would like to summarize my little vacation. Say that as much fun as it was, it has been equally as much not fun getting over it. I have had that experience with my last two, possibly three, if I can remember that far back, vacations. I know that the state of mind that I was in just before leaving this last time was pretty bad. I was ready to leave or bust. I was so tired and fed up with all the things I was doing, I really needed some kind of break. But now, getting back to all of those things I was fed up with, is almost harder. But I tread onward, with no destination anywhere in sight, and hope that there are a few moments of glee to help me feel better about the journey. I cant help but feel depressed about something. I dont know what it is, so it is hard to be entirely depressed. I have been spending a lot of time sleeping, and that is a sure sign. I have also had this headache that wont go away. I think if I get this project that I have been working on up and going, and get out of this house. I think if I do those two thing, that will show some progress, and get me feeling like I am at least doing something. I need to get one of these books out to Memmie, and one over to Cynthia. What I am going to plan today, is that I am will get one of the books over to Memmies house, and the other one written in and ready to send off to Gary. What I need to do is make up a little something to put in the front of each of them. Something that I thought I did a while ago, but cant seem to find anywhere. So I will have to write it again now.
You have been given this book because you have earned some level of respect from the giver. What you are now being asked to do, is write something on that particular days page every day. It doesnt matter what it is, you can write about yourself, your family, your friends, or the world around you. You can draw a picture or copy something down from something you have seen earlier that day, it really does not matter, just as long as you write something every day. You can keep the book as long as you like, a day, a week, a month, even the entire year. When you are having a hard time keeping up with the entries, or when you have thought of that someone you respect, and would enjoy reading what their thoughts and feelings about life are, then pass this book along to them. This is all about life, the good times and the tough, so please feel free to write about anything, and please remember to enjoy yourself
I dont know if that is the best I have come up with. I know that other thing I wrote, that I dont seem to be able to locate right now, was better. It was one of those blissful moments of writing that you only get every once in a while. This last one was forced, just like most of my writing has been lately. I dont know if it is the headache, or just the depression I have been feeling since I have gotten back. I really need to be starting this year off a little better. Hopefully all that it can go is up, right? I am sure it can get worse also, but lets not think about that. Let us try to write another opening to one of those books that isnt so forced.
here is a little book to write your thoughts and feelings for the day in. write whatever you want, it doesnt matter, just as long as you try to write something every day. You can write about yourself, your family, your friends, the world around you, draw a picture, absolutely anything you can think of, go right ahead. When you get tired of writing, simply think of someone responsible, that you respect, someone that you would be interested in reading what they think about life. Let your conscience be the guide, and pass the book along to them. Hopefully, at the end of the year, we will have something interesting to read. Thanks for being a part of this project.

Ohh, that one was much better. A little less rigid, a lot less structured. These books are so rigid and solid as it is, I want the people to feel comfortable in writing in them. Let them feel like they are able to write anything, and not feel like they are doing anything wrong. Writing is sometimes like that, especially for me. I need a little bit of time to warm up, and not think so much before I am able to just write what I really want to, write what I am really feeling. Write about this headache I have right now. Ouch. At least that is a start, and I can get some of these passed out and written on. I feel so bad, because there have been all these people, Rick, Mary, that have helped me, and now I am wasting, my time, and especially their time, buy not completing the project. Then I go around saying that I like to work on my personal projects more than my school projects. And then I end up not finishing my personal projects either. Come on Dusty, get with the program.
