I came across a website (advicetowriters.com) via my Reader and now I’m really inspired to write more! But only as a therapeutic outlet, ’cause the times I’m most confused are when I go weeks without writing in my diary. Although someday I’d like to write and illustrate a children’s book! Maybe I’ll get into that when I have my own to test on (on which to test).
I like words! I’m learning ~40 words a day for 50 days to prep for the GRE in September. Words that start with ab- and ad- are confusing, but now I’m at am- to ap- and it’s pretty fun. I’d like these words to be in my brain forever, but that doesn’t happen naturally. I read somewhere “Don’t worry about memorizing everything right now. You’re young; the things you need to know, you will learn as you grow.” But I’m kinda grown (twenty-two, what what!) and I want to know more words. = time to read!!
Jermababy loves reading and blogs about it and MAN I wanna be a bookworm too!! I’m stuck a fourth into Pygmalion, so I guess that is what is going on. I also want to reread Dr. Doolittle (in Japanese) again, I loved it when I was in 2nd grade and I want to improve my Japanese reading. I could be a bookworm again but. But nothing, so yeah. Ooh I’m also stuck at a tenth into Mark Twain’s autobiography; I read Tina Fey’s autobio, loved it, and delved into Twain’s, expecting the same fast-paced hilarity. BUT NOPE! Mark Twain is funny, but he is not a comedian.
My future is taking some form again and it is FUN! A Master’s can get me a job in teaching without having to get a credential. DID YOU KNOW??? So, I do some animal work, and when I’m satisfied, I teach Calculus and get summer breaks. OKAY, AWESOME. And then I own a bison farm. And a restaurant. And a summer house in Sweden. Now I know why/when I’m a happy person, it’s ’cause my dreams are huge and I
laugh in the face of danger, HA HA HA! am running. Figuratively. Slowly.
What else. I love Los Angeles.
