What's the Irony in this..?

Dear Journal...

Today is the day!

I made the deadline for Graduate School! 

This morning I submitted all application materials to the Department of English. It was a great feeling to proudly hand deliver my manuscript, Dear Lawyer under the category, Creative Non-Fiction.

Now, I wait until February to see whether or not I get accepted. I am praying for good things.

The manuscript is 56 pages long, which includes an Introduction, Prologue and PART I: Chapters, 1, 2, 3 and 4. Chapter 4 was the most difficult chapter to write. Here's the beginning of that chapter...then, you'll know why.

-       Chapter 4 –


One Week Later


     Exactly a week after I wrote the letter to Goon CEO, October 14, 2002, officially became the worse day of my life. Nobody but me knows how much I hate this part of the story. Anytime I write about it, talk about it or even think about it, an icky, crappy, poopy type of feeling overwhelms me. It would be nice if I could hit the backspace button and delete all the things I said and done that brought this fate upon me, but I can’t. I did what I did, and what is done is done.

     In my world, every October 14th is a personal day of mourning; It’s the only time I think about what happened; On all other days, I struggle not to, but there’s always something that triggers a memory like the numbers 14 and 41, or the time of day, 10:14 AM and 10:14 PM. It’s like my very own Friday the 13th with my name on it and stamped with the devil’s signature. 

This is what and how it happened..."
