h-a-p-p-i-n-e-s-s

so i have been slacking off with this book but for a totally good reason!! i have been trying to figure out how to do the next 3 stupid prompts without coming off as conceited, lazy, and a little too obsessed with shiny things (if there is such a thing). anyways, i am going to do the other 3 on my own and maybe share what i did later. (i mean do you really want to hear 3 things i love about myself and why or what i did on a day i skipped class, or the shiny things i collected?!) ok so now i'm going toprogress to the next task 8.

"if you're familiar with a light in the attic, where the sidewalk ends, the missing piece, and other shel silverstein books, you know that he is a master of the silly but poignant rhyme, and that he has awesome poems about picking one's nose, bears living in refrigerators, and the perils of not taking out the garbage. if you're not familiar with his work, it's time to start.

write your favorite shel silverstein poem here, and then try to memorize it" (pg 10 of the happiness book)

ok so previously i might have been the slacker and pick the shortest one to memorize, but after my acting class i'm confident that i can actually memorize and preform it for you. (no, i do not need a teleprompter like other people might need...)

Messy Room

Whosever room this is should be ashamed!
His underwear is hanging on the lamp.
His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair,
And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp.
His workbook is wedged in the window,
His sweater's been thrown on the floor.
His scarf and one ski are beneath the TV,
And his pants have been carelessly hung on the door.
His books are all jammed in the closet,
His vest has been left in the hall.
A lizard named Ed is asleep in his bed,
And his smelly old sock has been stuck to the wall.
Whosever room this is should be ashamed!
Donald or Robert or Willie or--
Huh? You say it's mine? Oh, dear,
I knew it looked familiar!
