it’s so relaxing….

knowing that you have time to finish everything when your days aren’t limited to the whole “wake up” and then “go to sleep” mantra. just working through it regardless of the time and absent from it, rather then bound to it is wonderful!

even better is saying, okay, I have class at 12:30 and a meeting @ 4 and then class @ 5, but other than that I’m free to do whatever is really incredible. if I also just say the first thing I do when I wake up is work out (even if I go sleep after that) then it’s even better. because really, i love working out early in the morning as soon as I wake up. so yes, i’ll be getting up around 5:30 I think to go workout for an hour every day, and then i’ll come back, make breakfast, or i’ll stay out and eat breakfast depending on my mood. and every day will overall be fantastic because i can sleep, eat, and do work whenever I bloody feel like it.

Also, quote that won’t be said directly, but will be felt through mind-waves: “I’m sorry; there can be nothing between us. I don’t care if you do drugs, or you drink the bottle dry, or if you had sex with every women you met before me. But when you badmouth the rain…that’s just going too far. No one disses my rain.”

first exam of the semester (that is for a semester long course/not that final for the four week course) and i can already see myself scoring. . . an A!!!!

aright, just pumping myself up here. hya-cha! hya-cha! hya-cha! worst part about it? this is probably going to be the easiest test I am taking this year. why am i so freaked out?

poetry and poetics: the differences in art

many people say “that’s poetic” or “don’t be such a poet!” or maybe, it’s just the people i happen to hang out with. anyway, when someone calls something poetic or starts blabbering corny rhymes and imagery, it can be an instant reaction to:

run away

draw fake tears down your cheeks

or maybe just shout “don’t be so emo!”

but take a step back before any of those occur. is that person even trying to be a poet? is that person just mocking through like poeticly? or is this person ACTUALLY going into that field and speak aloud to feel how the words sound?

poetry is an art form, a machine, a semblance of words on the page, a giant metaphor, etc. etc. etc. . .

poetics is an exaggeration of something that makes it seem more flowery, fanciful, fantastic, etc. etc. etc. . .

poetry is a form of expression and impression. impression not to impress, as in to make someone proud of you or to make them view you higher; but rather to impress, as in to impress your thoughts, images, and ideals on the reader which goes through expression via imagery, metaphor, tone, form, syntax, et al. entirely different from poetics, because although all poets use poetics, not all those who use poetics are poets. 

prose uses many elements of poetry–the metaphor, the figurative philosophies in a story. but what separates poetry from using poetics is the form, not the content, of the work.

poetry is distinguished as such for its tendency towards breaking the line at odd intervals, being more abstract, and even when written in prose is somehow shorter or more flowery.
