"what i did at school today…"

[except really this was two weeks ago, minor detail…]
One day in a very invigorating lecture, in a very difficult course, a girl named Anna decided to test herself.
No, she didn’t test herself on anything she had been currently studying, rather she chose to channel her inner-fourth grader & see if she still had “it”. “It” being a very nerdy ability to name all 50 states in less than an hour– with out even the outline of a map.
“Could it be done?” she asked herself, hesitating when realizing how long ago fourth grade truly had been.
But Anna wasn’t one to just turn down a challenge. So, Anna flipped to a fresh page in her lecture notes spiral notebook & embarked on the challenge. Although she struggled at times & had to look up with a look of serious ponder-idge,
, in fact, did “it”.

“It” had been done.
With ten minutes to spare.
That’s right, this Anna had listed all fifty states in under 40 minutes; with no map, no help.

Of course, Anna was simply elated & had a hard time containing her excitement in the last ten minutes of lecture.
once the class was dismissed Anna turned excitedly to her friend next to her & exclaimed her feat:

His response: “Did you really come to lecture to do that?!”
Anna’s response: “Oh, so clearly you came to improve on YOUR doodling.”

but nevertheless Anna was quite proud of herself.

  1. Cute little story! I like the way you wrote it! Very interesting writing style!

    I am Canadian, but very familiar with US geography. Hmm… maybe I should test myself! It would probably take more than an hour though! 😛
