Awhile back I had a dream that English speakers had decided to rid themselves of the semicolon, since no one could bother to remember how to use it correctly. The Crimson White sent me to the press conference, which was held nearby and in the middle of the night, and I had to write up the story.
The press conference was held in a backyard patio, lined with wooden picnic tables while icicle Christmas lights surrounded the area. As an announcer listed several reasons why we no longer needed this punctuation mark, several listeners sipped on cocktails. As the speaker went on about the semicolon was no longer going to exist, I realized with dismay I had forgotten my recorder. I then realized I had no writing utensil whatsoever and nothing to write on. I was missing all of these important quotes about the semicolon.
What silly, anxious dreams I have.
The California sun is beautiful, and the breeze is relaxing, and our sky is blue. Oranges and lemons hover over the emerald green grass in our backyard while my dog anxiously runs in circles around my feet, and I enjoy some Priscilla Ahn playing on Pandora. I’m currently reading Julie and Julia. A book about writing and food? Yes please!
Meanwhile, a job hunt is hanging over my head. I pray I’ll find something. Any tips for job searching? Share them!
