obnoxious witch strikes: i learned something new!

Standard

so this week a friend of mine introduced me to blackout poetry.

you need a book ( preferably an old novel you wouldn’t read again) and a sharpie.

what you do, basically is, you try to make a poem by blacking out words in a page using a sharpie.

like this one:

this is from a friend of mine.  she told me she got the idea from the internet, but to actually see another poem or another art within an art is by itself genius.

i love it when i learn something new. it’s one of the reasons why i want to get up every morning and go out into the world. 🙂

remember: laugh even when you’re sad.
