Notre Dame Thoughts

Yesterday was hump day and now it is time to start focusing on Samford, but let me just throw in my thoughts on the game and ND in general.

1. ESPN Gameday was awesome. Our tailgate was set up right next to Bunger-Henry and so we could see almost everything. I love that this game had so much press and excitement around it. The only thing I was surprised about was how quickly they tore everything down after the show. I was a student when they came to campus in 2000, and I don't really remember that much about it, so maybe this is the way they do things. Either way, it was awesome to have so much of the college football world focused on Tech and our game with the Irish. And there were no UGA flags.

2. The game was great. It seemed like 12 hours of tailgating had worn people out by the second half, but everyone still managed to get up for the big plays and for the most part the stadium was going bananas. Notre Dame fans were really cool and with few exceptions have I ever had such football focused discussions with an opponent's fans. I was very impressed and would look forward to a game with Notre Dame any time. I think a lot of the Tech fans I spoke with felt the same.

As for my last post which drew so much fire from Notre Dame fans, not that I think any of you are reading now that the game is over and you have Penn State to think about and post angry comments on their blogs, get over it. You are Notre Dame fans, your school is probably the greatest football program of all time. People love to take shots at those who are on top. Because you are so prolific the times when you fall short or take missteps, perceived or real, it gets noticed. Do you think the Yankees care that everyone wants their team plane to crash in a fiery inferno?

I posted my buddy's article to stir up emotions before the game. He constantly rants about Notre Dame and chose to collect all of his thoughts in one article. I do not care that much about Notre Dame but he does, so I did not fact check. If there were factual errors, I am sorry. Please note that my friend's article was posted BEFORE THE GAME. I have nothing but respect for Notre Dame and their fans and I hope you run the table from here on out. Your team was classy and so were your fans. I have no hard feelings about the game and I hope no one else does either.

Now onto Samford...lets score at least one touchdown a half, and show the world we got game. -yb

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing

Nothing exciting happening lately. I've just been letting everything happen without me lately. Basically nothing seems worth doing, but whatever. I've just been staying at home not getting anything done.
