Today in English, we started a topic on journalism, and since the Olympics are ‘soon’ (in months! Not that soon) the teacher wanted us to write about our experience with something that has a connection with the Olympic values. My life hasn’t been super exciting, so I just sat there, my mind blank. When she was walking around, I asked her what I should do, starting with me saying ‘Oh, I’m so confused!’ and putting my head on the table. She knows I have a blog (this one!) and suggested I write about my blog and my writing. She was asking what I blog about, and I didn’t answer properly. What do I blog about? There isn’t one main focus. I said ‘Um… All different stuff… I write about books and writing a lot…’ and she went ‘YAY!’ Well, she didn’t, but since she’s an English teacher, I guess she wants people to be interested in writing. So she was probing me for all the answers to her questions about me and all I could do was laugh. She wanted to know everything! Stupidly, I mentioned I had a book from when I was younger that I wrote stories in and she went ‘YAY!’ Again, she didn’t, but she was excited. So she talked and talked, but I REALLY needed to go to somewhere (History club; something I told you about in a long-ago post) and tried to go, but she was like ‘Blah blah blah…’ Finally she finished with this:
“I want to see the inner Jasmine!”
If you didn’t get it, that is my full first name.
I was kind of freaked out by that, so I laughed and nodded.
I don’t really know why I’m telling you this, but I thought it would be an interesting… anecdote!
Your inner blogger, Jaz
