old english assignments and the philosophical thoughts they bring

my High school sucked, but there were a few bright spots among the teaching staff. the english teacher, Mrs. Latta, was fond of cows and had a way of making you think. she assigned a journal entry to us once that i was recently reminded of. “What would you like to be remembered for?” basically, if I were to die tomorrow, what would i like to be remembered for? The only thing i could think of then kinda holds true now. I would want to be remembered for being a nice person. nothing fancy i suppose, but that is alot of who i am. I would love to say i am always nice, but i won’t lie that way even to myself. I want to be a loving mother (really a good mom, but hey you can’t always be the worlds best parent. no one can.) A gamer of high skill (yeah i know, but i can dream, can’t i?) a poet with extraordinary talent. ( ok so mediocre is more likely…) but mostly as someone who was nice and fun and occasionally talented. if nothing else it is a reachable goal. so i ask each of my friends…

What would you like to be remembered for? good or bad… just one thing you would like the world to remember about you.
