People that know about this blog ask Jimmy that, so I guess I haven’t answered that question here. The last line of my first posting was “Caring tributes scare me. I hate blogging. But if you email me questions I’ll try to add info here.” No one has emailed me to ask but I figure since there’s more than one person asking Jimmy I’ll pretend. I’m assuming that people are primarily concerned about my emotional well-being so…
I got stuck here. I really thought about how having breast cancer was affecting my emotions . There were a couple of days when I’d have sudden anxiety attacks and puke but I haven’t felt any anxiety in weeks. I’m annoyed. Life is going to suck more than it usually does for the next ? months. I really wanted to go to Alaska and see whales this summer. But I finally saw John Prine so sometime, somewhere I will see whales.
The Kubler-Ross stages of grief came to mind so I had to look it up, even though it really doesn’t apply.
FOUR THEMES OF MAN – a story from when I was 15
I took strange electives in high school. I knew I was going to college but I also believed that there was no such thing as a permanent record. So instead of American Lit, I took Four Themes of Man so I could hang out with my friends. Death, Aging, War and Love. Those are the four themes, my friends were Joni and Kathy.
I learned about Kubler-Ross and wrote a paper about my still favorite John Prine song. I stopped going to class 2 days after we started reading Johnny Got His Gun and, unfortunately, missed the Love unit.
Decided to find a picture from 10th grade to put here and got distracted… but here it is. Me and Joni age 15 trying to look cool.
