six word memoirs

One of our assignments for Speech is to come up with a six word memoir. It's an interesting exercise in conciseness. I found a website that has several memoirs to read @ smith magazine.

Everyone has a story. Can you tell yours in six words?

This is what you start with.. your beginning point. Can you create a six word story?

Here's mine:

Young bride, late motherhood, later education.

A Belated Happy New Year!

I'm not exactly sure where the last month has gone. I suspect it was lost in a flurry of getting ready for the new semester and an "ostrich with head in sand" mental attitude.

I think I'm out of the slump now. Two tests under my belt, one public speaking and one group project finished as well. I unintentionally took lead in my group (I wasn't assigned the group leader position), so I'm not sure if that will reflect poorly in my grade or not, but at least we got the project done!

I think I need to make myself a large calendar with ALL my due dates on it, I've already missed a couple of reading assignments because certain classes just don't register on my brain away from the school. And that could cost me in the long run.

So time to start strategizing how I'm going to keep all the plates spinning.
