Today I took another prompt from the book 642 Things To Write About. I opened the book this morning and took one from the first page I turned to: “Write Facebook Status Updates for the year 2017.” At first I thought it’d be easy but it really wasn’t. While River napped I thought about it a little, it’s one thing to think about a general idea of where you want your life to be in 4-5 years, but totally another thing to think about it on a day to day basis. How old will I be? River? Karen? What grade will River be in? etc…I found it pretty difficult to think about specifics, besides the obvious (Hillary Clinton is President. Duh.) So, I stopped thinking and sat down and just banged it out in about 3 minutes. How about you all? What would your Facebook status’ look like in 2017? Try it, it was both fun and terrifying. And really isn’t that the best kind of thing?
