So, I got this 350 page journal that has an owl on a branch, a crescent moon, and some stars on the cover. I just don’t know what I want to do with it. I always have the problem of feeling like something like this needs to be special and not screwed up, and I’m always afraid that I’ll mess it up somehow. It’s weird, I know, but that’s me. Also, we recently watched a...
A Review, Finally!
Ok, so I’m really bad about keeping up with some things, and this blog is one of them. But finally, after a long wait, here’s a bit of a review for The Giver by Lois Lowry. I absolutely love this book. It’s pretty much literature for kids. The base concept is simple: sometime in the future, the world has changed into a place that is so strictly regulated, that the idea of choices...
So, I was really planning on writing that review last night. But then I got home and had some scotch instead. I’ll do the review tomorrow after work.
Sorry to whoever might be reading. I know I’ve been bad about keeping up this blog. Tonight, though, I plan on writing a little review of the book The Giver. I know, I know, I was reading Storm Front, but I have good reason for putting it down and picking up The Giver instead. I’ll explain that in my post tonight, and I promise I’ll start reading Storm Front again today at lunch.
…coming soon. In case anyone was interested. I’ve been slow on the reading of Storm Front lately, but I plan on changing that and finishing the book. Then I’ll post a review of it. I’ll be sure to either hold off on spoilers or use a ‘read more’ break to hide them for those who do not wish to see them.
…is getting predictable. Just like I’ve been telling people, with all the really nice weather we’ve had this winter, we got hit with a decent amount of snow all at once. Not as bad as a lot of places have had it, but it’s still taking a few treks out there to shovel all the snow out of the important places. Plus we had to actually shovel my car out of the street because the...
I need to somehow figure out how to get myself truly motivated to do things. There are things I want to do, like get this house cleaned up nicely, fix some things, get into shape, write daily or at least bi-weekly (and by write I mean seriously sit down and crank out a few pages at least). I really want to do these things. But for some reason, I just can’t get myself to do them even when I...
So, just finished watching the pilot for Touch. I’m going to need to rewatch it (missed a little bit of the opening voice-over), but so far, I am interested. It’s a serious drama that has a nice steady pace with intricate stories intertwining with one another. It didn’t get overly technical with the mathematics or gimmicky (or even in-your-face) with Jake’s autism. This is...
So there’s a show premiering tonight on Fox that I’m going to watch. It’s called Touch and stars Kiefer Sutherland as the single father of a ten year old boy with autism. Jake, the boy, doesn’t communicate, but he has a fascination with numbers that seems to have the potential to predict the future through mathematical equations and relationships. The trailer for it is...
Don't You Just Hate...
…waking up with a sinus headache and pain in your neck and shoulders? And then remembering you have no sinus medication in the house. This is not a good sign of what sort of day this will be.
So, if I can’t find out a way to take ASL classes at UNO, I might consider paying for them at Metro out of pocket…. Unfortunately, that does mean at least $348 per class. I could save up that much for each quarter if I continue to work full time. But then I don’t know that I’d be able to also go to UNO and take other classes. I might be able to…. Maybe if I start...
Why Does This Have to be so Difficult?
I want to learn ASL. I took a class back at Metro, but I can’t go there anymore because financial aid for that ran out. I’m going to be transferring to UNO in the fall and was pretty sure they offered sign language. Tonight, I was looking at their website and every single one of their ASL class descriptions ends with the phrase “not open to nondegree students.” The degree...
So, I’ve been watching this show. Not Rescue Me. It’s a show I at first rolled my eyes about when it was advertised last summer because it seemed like a silly, gimmicky premise. And for the few commercials I saw, it was. But that’s because it was bad advertising. The show is Switched at Birth. The silly gimmick: two girls are switched at birth and later come to realize it and...
That’s about how much uninterrupted sleep I got last night. Sounds great, huh? The awesomeness of that amount of sleep was destroyed, though, when I awoke to find it was 4:40, I was due at work at 5, and I still desperately needed a shower. It was not fun. I was only ten minutes late, though. Pretty amazing, all things considered. I could use a nap.
I’m sitting at home on a Monday night, officially hating Mondays, being really bored. It’s kind of amazing how I’m very bored when I’m watching Netflix and talking to people, but it seems that I am anyway. I’m really just posting to make a post, because I decided I was going to blog so here I am doing it. I was also going to write about what I’m currently...
Beginning the Journey
So, I’m finally taking the leap and starting to blog. Mostly I might just blog about what I’m currently reading and watching. If something interesting or stressful happens to me, I’ll probably talk about that, too. Sorry for all those who happen across this if this happens to be very boring. You’ve been warned.
