Summer Reading...

This summer is being devoted to
1) summer class
2) working on the farm

So far I'm on my second book, I know I had a slow start. But I am catching up FAST!!!

Book one: "Water For Elephants"
A WONDERFUL book! two thumbs WAY up from this reader! The author allows the reader to just become a part of the book. I just could not put the book down!

Book two: "The Help"
I'm a little half way through this book. And again, nothing bad at all to say about it! Again, just can not put the book down once I start.

I'm taking a summer class, and it's all online. Every week we have two test to take that are due by midnight the next Sunday. So I was trying to be the good student and finish the test a day early, and it looked like it was only 30 questions (about the same length as the first test). And the after question 30 there was not a NEXT button. So I thought I finished the test, and then I went to go look at my scores...What did I find out? I failed, not just it was a close pass, but completely failed. So I look over the test and I find out that there are 60 questions!!! what the HECK! So I e-mailed the professor, so hopefully he'll understand and either...

1) he lets me take the test over again
2) he scores the test of what I finished.
I just NEED an 'A' in this class! I can NOT afford to fail a single test!


I wish I was better at things.
I wish I was able to just jump in.
Why do I get scared?
Why do I just run?

Sometimes I wish I had a different personality. I'm able to talk to almost anyone, anyone but the people I really want to talk too. I do not know what it is! I get all tongue tied, dried mouth, mind running, butterflies in the stomach, totally silent. there is just something wrong with me. I'm never able to be myself, and I WISH I could change that.......I WISH!


They say "home is where the heart is." I find this hard to believe sometimes. I LOVE being home with my family. I love my family. But, sometimes my heart is still left in Kansas. I love being in Kansas. I love the people, the city, the STATE! So if home is where the heart is, can home be in more than one place? can I have more than one home?
