  1. I'd LOVE to be a nonpareil storyteller! =D

  2. oooh. I love vocabulary. I've been doing a word of the day for my composition class every day. I've tried to select words that I would use when writing or speaking - so not ridiculously outlandish words. Unfortunately they still haven't recognized any of them. It saddens me what limited vocabularies college freshmen have.
