I start my Poetry Fundamentals class. I’ve reviewed my readings (which is a crap ton of poems by poets with funny names) and my assignments: analyzing object and list poems and discussing them with my fellow classmates.
And I have two poems due by Sunday for my portfolio.
But I’m hell bent at becoming a refined poet so I’m hungry for this knowledge,
Ready for this challenge.
My first day of substituting is this Wednesday.
But there’s this woman in my dreams who I aspire to be. She’s been teaching for years, has numerous publications under her belt and has a consisting posting schedule for her website.
These are just some of the steps I’m taking to get to her.
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to feel like I’m in the right place at the right time with the right people.
I’m on my way.
