One of the things that stuck to me the most from Hugos' Triggering Town was when he said "To write a poem you must have a streak of arrogance—not in real life I hope. In real life try to be nice." This sentence not only gave me a mini life lesson but it also told me to not worry about the reader so much. I believe it is great when you don't have to worry about anybody except yourself. It really lets your mind wander and let those creative juices flowing. I think that when I begin to write I should let it all go and relax and just write however, there is a certain point where I should think about my audience when writing. Hugo also addresses this earlier in his book when he says "Every moment, I am, without wanting or trying to, telling you to write like me." He even said I don't have to believe or listen to everything he says. This gave me a lot of respect for him. This shows a lot of how he was as a person.

David's First Blog Post
Hi, my name is David Huynh. I am an 18 year old who lives in Dublin, Ohio. I am going to school to major in Business, however I have no idea what type of business I am doing but I am leaning towards being a stock broker. It seems like a fun job that always changes and keeps my active. I actually lived in New York for a lot of my life but I was actually born here in Ohio. My family is fairly interesting. What makes it interesting is that 3 of my aunts all live on the same street as me. I guess they really wanted a close family. I am also fluent in Vietnamese and grew up with a fairly Asian background, which is funny because I speak English at home to my siblings but Vietnamese to adults only. In my spare time, I like to hang out with my friends and in the summer I like to Disc Golf or play Ultimate Frisbee.
