Mice and Mockingbirds

I am so disappointed in the Harry Potter Movie that I am not even going to mention it in this blog. Well besides this sentence.

I had to get up really early this morning to go to the orthodontist. I know they tell you taffy isn't a good idea, I still ate a ton of laffy taffy, and therefor broke my retainer. Oops. But today is a very good day because... I DON"T HAVE CROSS COUNTRY AGAIN UNTIL TUESDAY!!!! Because I happen to be the worst runner on the girls Woodridge high school Cross Country team, I am not a huge fan of going to practice. Not a huge achievement on my part. But, oh well, I can get up and run 4 miles if need be, more than I thought I could ever do back when I was a little 6th grader.

But in the time from my last blog I have gotten in a fight with my mother, and gotten in a fight with one of my best friends, whoopie. If only if only drama didn't exist. But I'm going into my freshman year of high school, I know I am in for a heckofalotof drama.

Now I have a question for you people who read my blog, if there are any. Is it creepy for a sophomore guy to only go out with 8th graders and freshman? This guy (no names) my friend told me about has crushed on 4 8th graders and dated two of them, and all his other girl-friends have been at least a year younger. I say this is odd. What is your opinion?

But I am happy for two reasons. #1, I have finally read Of Mice And Men, and absolutely loved it, it made me cry. My favorite books are the ones that make me cry. My friends do not understand this, sticking to the SAD IS BAD campaign for books, but I disagree. If a book is good enough to make you feel, to make you feel so strongly that it brings you to tears, it is a good book. I also like books that make me laugh, for the same reason.

#2, I have finally convinced my sister to read To Kill A Mockingbird, something I have been trying to do for ages.

Well that's all for now folks!

  1. about the older guy ating younger girls.... i dont really think it matters in high school as much as when youre in middle school. alot of girl prefer to date older guys so personally i dont see this as a problem.
