I was thinking of doing this poem for the poetry slam at the end of the year – I figure that unless my small poetry skill increases by the end of the year, this will be as good as it gets.

When my mom read it she was like “Do we need to take you to some counseling?” *laughs*.

I want to make a blog post on a blog post, I have a poem that I’m dying to share, and well, some other things that I would say but it would ruin the small amount of surprise that comes from my posts when you don’t know what they are before you read them. Any-who, here are the twenty facts for today. And yes, regarding the title I know that it’s not one abstract fact which is what I’m implying by using the word “A” but it’s twenty. But like I said some some other blog post somewhere, I’m running out of creative titles.

Well, the first week of the new year is slowly coming to an end. And I mean very slowly.
