Okay, so Thursday I spent the night at a friends house with the hope and goal to re-start and finish a horribly confusing book assigned to us in our honors history class.

Yuck.

This book made no sense. It was confusing, stupid, jumbled up, boring, oh, and written about 70 years ago.

Both my friend and I are very advanced, super quick readers, and It took us an hour to read the first 20 pages, and those were the easy ones! We had to stop and discuss almost every sentence, and it seemed that every section, (each chapter was divided into like six 30 page sections—terrible, I know) it became harder and more confusing to read.

There were no quotation marks ad it did not tell who was talking. It would randomly switch from subject to subject and used vocabulary “not-found” in our handy-dandy electric porta-dictionary.

I one paragraph, a sentence described (pointlessly) how a girls hair was like an angels silk. The next sentence stated that she couldn’t “hold anything down” and the next told how if she got wet than she’d get a cold, and if not a cold, than a fever. And that’s an easier one in more understandable terms.

In short, we hated it. We still hate it.

We spent hours ad hours miserably reading it before we were only 4 chapters away to the end and we had absolutely no idea what we were reading.

We looked up chapter summaries online.

I’m not looking forward to the test.

Anyways, after that we saw the movie “Valentines Day” and it was pretty cute. 🙂

I don’t really know of anything else…and I’m suddenly exhausted. So…

G’NITE!

Well, not a really exciting day.

First of, I’m really excited because lately I’ve been eating breakfast every morning. And not just breakfast, but a good, semi-complete breakfast. (Whole grain wheat toast for grains, egg for protein, banana and blueberries for potassium, and orange juice with pulp. 🙂

Also, I’m mad at myself because I haven’t turned in my Journalism application yet for high school and it’s due in two days. Where did the time go?? I have it done, it’s just not typed. So, since we have a late-start tomorrow, (YAY!!!) I think I might type it before school.

Getting in to Journalism is really important to me for two reasons. Mainly, because I want to be in that class. The problem is, I’m most likely going to a private school next year. But I figured, What if I don’t? So I’m not taking any chances and I’m applying. The teacher says it’s not a big deal if I transfer as long as they know before school starts, which they would.

The other reason is I wanna see if I can! If I’m good enough, ya know?

Another thing: My partner and I finished our history project!

Also, a  friend and I are setting two other friends (who claim to hate each other, but it’s obviously just the opposite) up together. We’re tricking them in to meeting at Braum’s and having to sit through a romantic date complete with the 2-strawed milkshake and all!

Lastly, I’m really trying to earn some money. Not really for anything particular, just cause I like to have it available. I think a good amount to ALWAYS have in your wallet is $20 but I’m trying to seriously earn some bucks. 🙂 So I’m getting serious about my allowance so I can have sort of a “steady income”  if you understand what I’m saying.

Well, that’s pretty much it and I’m REALLY supposed to be in bed, so…

NITE’!
