Amateur-crastinate

Foiled again.

But worry not, I shall emerge victorious at last.

Why? Because that's how I roll.

I've got 11 minutes to write before Noakesy gets here so we can go down to the BYU invitational. I'm actually pretty excited for it. I'm only running one event, and I don't have to help put anything away afterwards. It's a win-win situation.

So, you'll notice that I promised a good post. I hold by my promises, even if they have to be delayed a little bit. There will be a good post. If not today, then tomorrow. If not tomorrow, sometime in the relatively near future.

But in order to make that good post happen, I'm going to need a little help. If there are any questions out there, anything you guys really want to see me write about, let me know. I'm not going to say that this will be a questions post, because I'm going to write something awesome whether or not you actually leave any questions or comments, I'm just opening up in the event that anybody has anything in particular they want to read about.

Predictions for tonight's game: Jazz by Four.

Predictions for tonight's other game: Me by a million.

Literary Magazine is essentially finished. That's a big sigh of relief right there. It's going to be really awesome this year, I think we did an excellent job on production. It looks pretty professional. Buying one would be a good idea, but if you don't have 20 dollars to throw at a book then don't.

The whole concept behind the literary magazine is awesome. Collecting all the best writing and artwork of the students of Taylorsville high into one awesome compilation? It's essentially a portrait of what Taylorsville thinks about during '06 and '07.

I'm in love with the idea of collecting awesome writing and ideas. That was essentially the idea behind the Taylorsville Alliance from who-knows-how-many months ago.

I think the Literary Magazine is going to be good, but not as good as it should be. No matter how awesome we do on production, we still rely entirely upon the writing of the students. It's not that good writing isn't out there, and it's not like we don't have amazing writing in the book. We've got some excellent work in there, we just don't know enough.

Next year I'm going to spam the .... Noakes is here. Cya later tonight.

I wanted to enter some things into Lit Mag, but I didn't. I guess in some part I was lazy, and another I chickened out... because I thought it might be too personal, or too stupid. Or something like that. Jaron even offered to slip something of mine into it... but... I didn't do it. Better luck next year, eh?

This year's lit mag is amazing. Not as good as it could be, for the reason you stated about relying on the student body. But I still think this year's is the best so far. We've worked hard, and it's paying off. :-D

As to what I wanna read about... hmm... I've never really thought about that. But I think it'd be interesting to hear your thoughts on this past year and what it's done to change and/or enhance any of your plans, insights, etc. about the future.

Wow, that was deep... I think my brain is ready for me to go do some homework.
