SOLSC_March 24. Spring Cleaning

Memories in boxes
……stocked up in dark corners,
…………long forgotten full of dust.


In between spider webs
……secrets are kept hidden
…………under the shadow of their threads.

 

Insignificant precious junk
……filling up the house,

…………cluttering the walls,
………………eating up our space.


How we long for them to stay
……..C linging on to that last bit of evidence from the past.

Now that we have been blogging for a while we have learned about Global Awareness. So now that we are in the global community why not take part in this “Movement” that’s going on all around the world!

Feel good about yourself! Start saving your Planet now!

“Earth Hour 2011 will take place on Saturday 26 March at 8.30PM (local time).

SOLCS 23 – A Slice Of My Life “Writing Again”.

You pick up your pencil and stare at the empty space … you sigh.
You are convinced that you are finally ready, you have considered it for a few minutes, and you even repeat a couple of phrases; “it sounds good” you say to yourself. Hesitantly, you ponder over your options for a few minutes…
If you are lucky you’ll grow tired soon, feeling incapable as always, you’ll set down the pencil and leave things as they are. Life will go on, and you’ll keep on carrying that heavy endless monologue inside your head, that won’t be remembered, nor repeated, nor read, by anyone ever again, not even yourself since you will soon forget it; if you are lucky.
However, if you find that inner strength you’ve been hoping for, If you’ve got it (even for just a second), there’s no turning back: you have surely written (without doing so) a tragic disappointment. You will hurt yourself one more time, as if instead of a pencil, in your hand you held a rusty dagger. Fooled with endorphins, adrenalin, and other treacherous things, your brain does not realize this at first, so, pencil in hand, you face the white page.
And then, almost magically the monologue disappears, it can barely be heard now like a long lost echo fading away into the distance. And your mind, before saturated with words, is now like the page in front of you: wordless.
“How is it possible? This cannot be happening again!” –you think. And it has happened so many times it starts to feel like déjà vu. You had been so sure you could do it this time, so how come you are still waiting for it to happen. This is getting ridiculous! You keep asking yourself why, and coming up with no answer. It’s been so long since you were able to write freely and effortlessly. “But I’ll be patient. I’ll fix myself someday. I will” – You promise.

Blogging guidelines.

Rules are always useful and important, they help maintain order and control of what we do. So when starting to handle this new tool that is our blog we should stop to consider what is right and what is not. Here are some of the guidelines I deemed most important to share.

For our own safety we must conduct ourselves with discretion and avoid sharing personal information concerning ourselves or any of our classmates, such as: last name, address, phone number, etc.

To ensure a good outcome of this blogging experience we should always:

  • Write substantial constructivist comments and posts that will help each other improve as writers.
  • Try to use correct punctuation and grammar (help will be needed to achieve this).
  • Write in a respectful and polite manner.
  • Always read the comments that have been posted on our own blog so we can approve them or revoke them properly, according to the situation.
  • Take full responsibility for everything that appears on our blog.
  • Avoid plagiarism.
  • And MOST IMPORTANTLY: Enjoy our blogging!
