The day before the day

This is the day before the official start of the Odyssey writing class. I am nervous and elated at the same time. I have no idea of what to expect of tomorrow, except highly creative people in a highly creative environment.

"There will be laughter and there will be tears", the teacher said today at dinner.
"Yeah", the assistant teacher said. "Our laughter and your tears."

Seated now on the bed in my bedroom, in the apartment that I share with two other students. All around me, my luggage seems to have exploded, a state in which I am guessing it will stay for six weeks. The room is unbelievably hot. No AC. In the US. What the hell?

I realize I probably won't have much time to write here, and when I do, it will be short. Once the class is over there will be more time. For now, bookmark or whatever, and read when I write. Good night.


  1. Hey, man, I don't have A/C in my house, either. Good to know you'll be used to it by the time you get here!

  2. Used to it? Maybe. Happy about it? Hell no.
