Suck it up! A Poem

I guess the gist of this one is: Suck it up, people!
I can't decide if my poetry has progressed or regressed, but my handwriting is a lot worse than it was when I was 9.

PS Coming soon: a few more scenes from My Merchant Marine.

Have a great weekend, all.

  2. You still tell it like it is, and I'm glad that hasn't changed! Very cute, Robyn! I'll always be a fan.

  5. Fun is important!
    You had good handwriting at that age. You should see mine now. I should've been a doctor...

  8. LOL You were quite a writer at 9. And in cursive too. Who even uses that anymore?

  9. Was that a message to yourself or one of those papers you had to hand in? It's great you still have it. If we don't have fun, what's the point?

    Will be back for the Marine story continuation.

  11. You're braver than I am for posting childhood poems.

  12. I'm sorry Robyn, but that was a poem? Not what we were taught when I was at school. But yes, always have fun.

  13. Jo, you couldn't tell from the rhyming of the verses "gotta to do" and "you have to do?" Hmm, maybe not. Yeah, I had to read it a few times before deciding whether or not to label it a poem.

    What some (e.g., me and you) call brave, others (e.g., everyone else) call stupid.

    Cheers, all.
    Keep a smile and a stash of chocolate.
    Be well.

  15. How fun that you were writing at 9 and you're still doing it today!

  16. I love the poem and a lot of wisdom for a nine year old! I learned to say No at my last job. I came easier "Hey can you..." NO! Selective hearing helps also!

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Most kind of you.

  19. I love when you share your work from childhood. I really need to find my composition book from high school. It's around here somewhere….

  20. Sounds like you haven't changed that much ;-)

  21. Both your handwriting and your skill with poetry at age 9 were leaps and bounds above either of ours now. If I try to handwrite something, I end up needing an interpreter. Needless to say, your Mystery Box of Awesomeness will probably NOT be containing a handwritten note.

  22. Sounds like you were wearing Big Girl Panties even at such a young age. And I don't mean Huge Granny Panties like in your merchant marine's bed!

  23. There are some things in life that you have to do.

    Wise words, my friend, particularly from a 9 year old. There are some people who have yet to grasp that one, which always shocks me. Though it shouldn't...

  25. The things you share from your childhood always amuse me. And they prove just how smart you were/are. :)
