horrorshow, a malenky bit - some (informal) notes

To the unfamiliar, the title borrows words from Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange. Nadsat, it’s called – slang spoken by teenagers.

Anyway, what I know is that I need to keep a journal for notes on the texts I read for class, but writing them down slows me down a bit (I mean writing with the starry pen and paper, you know, O brothers), so I’ll be typing them down now. 500 more words
