Writing My Wrongs Well, last

Writing My Wrongs
Well, last night, as I battled a strange bout of roving depressive thoughts, I got back in front of my computer and started work, once again, on a book about my college years. I've tried off and on to get this off the ground for the past four years, but I think I may have found a narrative voice that suits me. It's a factual/fictional account of my college life, drawing on things I experienced, saw others experience, and some is just pure made up silliness. I decided to approach it in journal format, much like this blog, starting on Sept. 7, 1993, my first night in the dorm. I managed to pound out 10 pages last night, and it has a lot of the same tone that comes through in my weekly column, which is exactly what I've been striving for, so this could be a very good thing. It's not award-winning material, but it makes me feel good. I'll post excerpts on this blog once in awhile to gauge reader interest.

I've been feeling really crappy the last few days, and I'm not sure why. Well, I have a good idea why, but it's not something I feel like expounding on here.

On a totally unrelated note, I finally found out where the disturbing odor was originating in my room. About two weeks ago, I thawed out my mini-refridgerator, and I thought I caught all the water on the towel I laid down underneath. Well, apparently quite a bit of water soaked into the carpet, where it sat in damp pleasure under the refridgerator. Now, the previous room occupant owned a dog, so my room started to emanate with a wet dog/mildew repugnance that made me question my own hygiene. Last night, I discovered the smelly little source, so I moved my fridge and coated the area with Carpet Fresh, so my room smelled like Carpet Fresh and wet dog/mildew. Hopefully, the carpet will dry now that I've moved the fridge and things will return to normal. I can't stand stinky carpet. Nasty stuff, that.
