Last Day

I finished my last class, so I can cast off the shackles of the oppressive dictatorship I call college.

For one week.

Friday Five (7)

1. What do you most want to be remembered for?
My writing, assuming anybody will ever read it. Or possibly my uncanny ability to alienate everyone I don’t dislike.

2. What quotation best fits your outlook on life?
“Between the Pope and air conditioning, I choose air conditioning.”—Woody Allen

3. What single achievement are you most proud [sic; it should be “proudest”—stan] of in the past year?
I think the most significant achievement is not failing African History last semester, but it wasn’t really my achievement; more accurately, it an act of benevolence by a professor who—rightfully, I might add—thought I was pathetic and that failing a class might drive me to suicide.

So I guess I’m gonna have to go with the whole not being brutally murdered by the many people—but by one special lady in particular—who want my blood for one reason or another.

4. What about the past ten years?
Well, I could go for the easy one and say “graduating high school,” but that doesn’t really seem like a big deal to me, since it seems to be the popular thing to do these days. Unless you’re FUCT, who seems pretty proud of his lack of diploma/GED.

I guess, if we’re going on the basis of how proud I was at the moment of high achievement, the biggest deal would be the first time I actually finished an entire, feature-length, genu-wine screenplay. Looking back on it, it wasn’t even remotely good, but at the time, I was incredibly pleased with myself and my work.

5. If you were asked to give a child a single piece of advice to guide them through life, what would you say?
“Look at everything I have ever done and will do, and do the exact opposite. Trust me, you’ll be a lot better off.”
