After A LOT of thinking I have come up with a new idea for my senior project. It still has to do with my poetry and the new blog that I have made(plus I am still working on the letters) but I am adding a twist to it. I won't say what it is because I am still thinking about it. Whatever I end up doing I can actually say that it is going to be pretty darn awesome!

Today I went to my little sister's open house and I got a picture of her cover page! There was no grade in it but at this point I think the grade is now in her head. She has new knowledge that she didn't know before which, in my book, deserves an A+!
Here is the link to the original post I had for this "writing from the start":

Okay. Soooo. I have spent a lot of time thinking and I think I am ready to share what I have decided to add to my senior project. Before I get to that though, I am no longer hand writing letters. I found out how much I had to say and to how many people and the amount of time that I have is extremely limited. In order to hand write letters to the people that I want to hand letters to, would take...well a really long time. I am sad that I won't be able to make them more special by hand writing them but, in the end, I think that what the letter says it way more important than what way it is in(typed or hand written). This way when I am typing out my letters I don't have to worry about cutting out stuff I want to say because I have to write it out later. Alright. Now for what I was going to say in the beginning. I started a new blog and I have made it anonymous because I don't want people knowing I am the one behind the whole thing but I am now okay with at least letting people that know I made one and its out there(: The point of my new blog it to have a place where people can see that there is someone that can understand them and has similar problems just like them. Its really just a mix of random stuff that goes through my mind. I have put up some of my poetry and the awesome thing is that my new blog is getting more views that this one gets so YAY!!!(: My project has just been getting bigger and bigger. I am starting to wonder if this project will ever end...

As I look through all of my old notebooks, I find notes that I have not looked at for years. The words written on the pages are powerful. I didn't think that I could write words like that. While reading these notes, I can feel the emotions that I was feeling at the moments that I wrote them. Its amazing how well one can write when writing from the heart. Many of the things I wrote about were written in the darkest moments of my life. It has been a huge emotional journey having to look at all of the thoughts that have gone through my mind in the past. This senior project is more than a project to me. This project is a tool to see how strong a have become. Having to look at the past is not easy for me but yet, to do my project, its required to bring back old memories and feelings. So, the poetry part of my project has been quite...interesting. As for my letters that I am writing, those are taking longer than I thought they would. I have so much to say to so many people and I don't know how to put everything into words in one letter. Sooo...that is still being worked on. Overall, my project is going well and I still have A LOT of work to do. OH! I have also decided to write letters to people that I feel need an apology from me. Yeahhh...this project just keeps growing for me. That is okay with me though. I love it!(:

I am some what of a poet. Not a very good one but hey still a "poet". I have been writing for about five years and so you can image how many I have. The problem though is that they are scattered EVERYWHERE! They are in multiple different journals, notebooks, and on small pieces of paper. So, I decided that I would type them all up and print them out. This way I could put them in clear slips where I could then file them nicely in a binder. I will try to put them in order of how I wrote them but we will see how smoothly that turns out. The next part of my project is writing letters!!! I will write letters to each person that have had an impact in my life or has changed it in some way. I will hand write them all and then have typed out copies for me. Also, I will be writing letters to people that didn't think I would make it this far and to people that have hurt me but have made me stronger by the things they did to me. This is going to be the tricky part of my project because I am still debating on whether to give these letters out or not. I will continue to think about that part but yeah. That is what I am doing for my senior project(:
