I guess it's true to say that time flies. It doesn't seem at all like I've had this blog a whole year plus like a week!
Around this time last year, I think I was complaining about my English teacher, and the dumb assignments we had in her class. Well, this time around in December, I'm loving my English teacher/class/assignments! We've actually read some good books, I found an author I liked, and because of the assignments, I was forced to find a book of my own, and I am ending up to love it!!
I'm kinda reading a lot of books right now, but that's ok, because I'm almost done with one, another is really easy, and I am enjoying the other two quite a bit. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is interesting, and I enjoy our in-class discussions/debates/tangents that we get on from one little question about the book. Mary Reilly is an easy read little companion to Jekyll and Hyde. On my own, I picked up The Reader at a little bookshop in Coronado (we had Thanksgiving at the Del Coronado), and am speeding right through it. About a Boy, though, by far, is my favorite. I find it poignant and funny, and sweet. And true. (also the movie is one of my favorites).
We just made cookies, 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies, and 3 dozen molasses cookies. We're sending two dozen of each to my friends dad who is stationed in Afghanistan. So I feel like I did my good deed this holiday season. I donated 2 dollars to livestrong, and a lot of pennies to Pennies for Peace.
Rat dissection on Thursday!!
