I used to love “Ten Things” lists. It was the perfect filler piece whenever I needed to add space in a paper. And people love lists – just look a Buzzfeed. I used to do them a bunch but I haven’t lately (aside from my memorial day satire). So I’m a little excited about writing one for this prompt.
I graduate college this year and I think the most appropriate list for me to write would be about what I want to do after I get that overpriced piece of paper.
I’ve written about where I want to go to graduate school multiple times and this is one of the things I can not wait to do. I have this pretentious fantasy of being a writer in Paris and doing the whole drunk writer thing would be fun. Really fun, actually.
One of my favorite (top five) movies is The Blues Brothers. Since I have been 12 all I have wanted to do is drive around Chicago wearing the same suit and go to little blues clubs. The Blood of the Unicorn is a beer my dad and I ordered from a brewery in the city. They don’t sell it where I live and I really want one again. Along the way I will stop for White Castle – just had to throw that in there.
It’s actually a legitimate fear of mine.
This is also something I would have to do during a potential graduate school trip. If I get into the University of Kent I would so do everything I can to see everything Shakespeare-related I could.
No comment. Just want to do that. For self-worth purposes and stuff.
Otherwise this creative writing degree will just be a complete waste of time.
Because it is just an absolute mess right now.
Preferably a young french woman I meet in grad school that has a thing for Americans.
Because making people sad is just a sucky thing to do.
For at least 60 years. That would cool.
