Looking through a bunch of my old documents on my computer, I stumbled upon a bunch of my old assignments that I had to do throughout college. One of the ones that stood out was a piece I had to do as part of a creative writing final project my freshmen year. It’s pretty funny and please excuse any lack of writing technique. T’was a long time ago.
