Cuddle Bunny (A love letter)

February 13, 2010

My dear, dear Sir,

I’ve been admiring your work for a while now, and I’ve just gotten up the courage to tell you how I feel.  The way you write, the way you speak, everything you do it enchanting to me.  I couldn’t imagine anyone more perfect, or anyone who’s done more for our nation.  You’re the mot amazing man I’ve ever read about, and you’ve written some of the most amazing things I’ve ever read. I don’t know where we’d be without you, but I’m guessing it would probably look something like Canada.  For saving us from that terrible fate, I love you Mr. President James Madison.

You’re known as the Father of the Constitution, and baby, if your child isn’t brilliant.  You wrote something that’s malleable, but still has some very specific laws, and you made it able to be amended as time went on, which showed me you were flexible and realistic, but at the same time romantic.  Your Federalist papers were eloquent, and occasionally witty.  James, you have a style all your own, and I can’t help but feel my heart flutter every time I read about the separation of powers in the federal government. Without you as Secretary of State, there would never have been the Louisiana Purchase, which doubled the size of the nation and brought about a beginning to Manifest Destiny.  Your passion for the nation brings about my passion for you.  While your Presidency was riddled with problems like the Embargo Act of 1807, which led to the War of 1812, and the burning down of the White House, the end of the war brought along a peace that dissolved, for a short time, bipartisanship.  You are charismatic, caring and a generally wonderful man.  If only you felt the same way about me as I feel about you.  You did support high tariffs and a large military, but nobody’s perfect, and I believe the best love is based on acceptance.

I know our love is not meant to be.  You have your magnificent First Lady, Dolley Madison, and I’d never dream of getting between the two of you.   Alas, I have no chance of being your true love, but I will still pine from afar.  Plus, I’m not a necrophiliac and you’ve been dead and buried for over 170 years.  Not even Lincoln, with his tall good looks, could ever replace you in my heart.  Just so you know, even though you’re all corpsified and gross, I still love you, Jame.  Even though you were the 4th President, you’ll always be number 1 in my heart.

Love always,

Kathleen

Okay, while I am a big fan of President Madison, this is a joke.  Because, you know, Presidents Day is the day after Valentines Day, so I decided to celebrate the one I like more…Presidents Day.  So I hope you enjoyed reading that as much as I enjoyed writing it.  One thing I’m upset about is that I don’t get the day off for President’s Day.  I have to go to school.  And LEARN.  And turn in HOMEWORK.  Anyway, that’s my update for today.   And now for the random picture.  I decided to include some artwork I made this week.  They’re each Valentines for some of my friends, so enjoy!

Have a great week!

A fine lesson in procrastination

February 11, 2010

Well, here we are world…first post.

Anticlimactic, ain’t it?

Basically, I’m going to give a quick lesson in procrastination as I’ve perfected it.  It might not work for you, but I’ve found that it helps keep me on my toes and keep an adequate stress level.
First:  You need an assignment.  Now, you can want to do this assignment or not.  Doesn’t matter.  Right now, I have a calculus assignment that’s due tomorrow evening as well as a physics online quiz, also due tomorrow evening.  So there are my assignments.

Second:  Don’t do them.  If you find yourself with free time during your day, do something else instead.   The assignments will be there when you get back for the most part, and there’s always time to do them later.  Until your boyfriend calls and wants to go out.  Or your friend needs help with the very assignment you’re avoiding.  Or maybe your roommates want to go to the movies with you. Oh great, now you have to go to work.  Wait, there’s a party tonight?

Third:  Start running out of time.  All those little time killing activities have begun to build up and build up until your due date has become a deadline.  Now, if you feel stressed out and like you want to strangle small animals and cry, you’re doing it right.  Those who truly procrastinate as a way of life will still avoid the assignment at this point, and decide to do it once they calm down a little bit.
Fourth:  Frantically try to complete the assignment as each tick of the clock kills more precious time, which you need more than anything at this point.  Watch as time slips further and further away as you find that you only have one minute to finish 4 problems for your online assignment, and those due dates are not soft and fluffy and kind like the ones professors tend to make for turn in assignments.  You press submit for any work you have and call it a day with your bare minimum amount of work.

And finally:  Blame the professor for you poor grade.  It wasn’t your fault you didn’t have time to complete the assignment.  Seriously, the due date was unrealistic.  Didn’t he know that you had a big soiree this weekend, or that Avatar just came out?  Seriously, how is homework supposed to compete with that?

Hope these easy steps could help you not complete your homework on time and scrape by in school!

And now, a picture, which I shall endeavor to include in all my posts.

He procrastinated.  Doesn't he look happy?

My best friend.
