From Luby Lu Lu

Justin was forced to escort Gracie to the dance...

Just to show you opposites attract. Or do they?

Baby Girl

I am posting this before anyone else in my family. It's going to be a girl!

Possible Careers

I know I'm too young to choose what I will be when I grow up, but here are some possible ones:
  1. Lawyer- I've always thought it would be fun to be paid to yell at people. But the downside is that the words have to mean something and law school looks boring...
  2. Journalist- My social studies teacher advised me to get a degree in journalism after reading my philosophy journal (I got the highest grade in the class!) Mom says that journalists either write or are on the radio. I think I would like to write. Unless they had free donuts at the news station...
  3. Linguist- Okay, I just showed that I cannot do this because I had to spell check for this ENGLISH word! The only reason I think I might be good at this is that in Spanish, it took me 3 minutes to complete the assignment assumed to take an hour (no, this was not an assignment on colors... it was on prepositions), so I started working on Latin. Boy, are they similar!
  4. Mathematician- I am in Honor's Algebra. If I did math, I DON'T want to do geometry. I want to work on philosophy of math, such as 9.999... = 1 because 1/3 +2/3 = .33333... + .66666... =.999999 = 1. (Sorry if I just lost you.) I also worked after school on proving that even though the graph on the Olympics showed that girls were getting faster more quickly than the boys, the boys would be faster because you would use exponents to better figure this out. My dad looked this up on the Internet, and we downloaded a collage credit PowerPoint on this same subject. (It was much more complex.)
  5. Dentist- Who doesn't want to put people in pain???
  6. Computer Technician- Computers are so much fun to play with. I taught myself to type in 2nd or 3rd grade, and I have to say I am pretty good with it....
  7. Mother- I love little children. They are SO cute and fun to be with.
  8. Teacher- see #7

The Chosen

Sorry there is an overload on books I have just read. And I'm sorry to say that there are at least 5 more books on their way.

Okay, this book is The Chosen by Chaim Potok. I will be surprised if you haven't heard about it, but that is okay because I have already been surprised a lot...

This was actually the second time I read this book. This time I tried to be a little more open to Danny's father. It's hard... but I did it! I learned at the end that Danny's father is just trying to do his best because he loves his son. It just seems like Danny's father is not showing the love and attention that Danny needs. But it all turned out for the best. I just wished that the story could have had more of a happy ending than "I'm not going to be a rabbi! See you in a while!"

This book is NOT a fast read. I'm not saying it's a long book. You just have to go slowly through it to get it. It's not a mind-grabbing book... You have to try to get those little details.

In conclusion, read this book!

Remember when....

Ben and I attacked Angelo with our club that "came to disorder".

I got horse hair ALL over my clothes and the car...

Angelo and Doug refused to pull the handcart so it was just me, Ben, and Aleisha. And then we got treats from Aleisha for being troopers...

They gave us free ice cream cones at a restaurant!

I took this random photo. P.S. If Coco-Cola wants this photo for an ad, I would be happy to sell it to them....
