So I don't think many of you know this, but I'm in a class called Basic Communications (not to be confused with Business Comm.). It's basically a "you failed english" class, to make up credits. Anyway, even though it's a class for failures, it's still quite fun and I learn some interesting things in there (although the teacher's jaw about dropped when I told her about my 32 ACT English score). Today in class, we learned what a memoir was, which is a story about a certain memory or someone's life as a whole, kind of like an autobiography. After that, she showed us a book full of six word memoirs called Not Quite What I Was Planning (A six word memoir in itself). Basically, it's a book full of people saying a whole event or part of their life in six words. It's a pretty interesting concept. Here are some examples:
-Waited too long to start living. -You could say I'm still bitter. -Two hours, one closet, true love. -Am I lost? Or just wandering? -Thirteen years......and still my heart weeps. -New Divorce, New Disease. New York. -A body fractured, a spirit whole. -Cancer came. Teaching ended. Learning began. -Wedding bands can easily come off. -Too much chemo. I'm a biohazard. -Catholic, gave it up for Lent. -Found God. Husband found girlfriend. Amen? -Chucking the lemons back at life. -Happily married, until the paternity test. -I still make coffee for two
So I think you get the idea now....and I made a few of my own, so here you go.
-Played video games. all my life -concerts are fun. school is ignored. -Matured early, people seek answers. cool. -not invited again? i don't mind -great American knowledge, still not citizen.
come up with your own! they're fun.
