  • First and foremost I have taken a vow of silence for tomorrow between the times of 8:15 and 3:20. There are reasons for this I don't feel like getting in to, but will most likely describe in tomorrow's post.
  • Secondly, I spent thirty minutes at Barnes and Noble and didn't buy anything =.= My to-buy list includes: The Catcher in the Rye, Candide, Republic, and Walden and Civil Disobedience. I am attempting to become enthused about reading again--a daunting task, no doubt--and simultaneously become better read. Some books I have to read out of the principle of considering myself an intellectual.
  • Today in English, Basil decided to impart half his life story on us, which I found both amusing and vindicating. Also in English, we somehow went from a discussion on the differences between boys and girls, which I was just prepared to impart my vast wisdom on, to a discussion on what made boys and girls popular, to just popularity in general. That's when I gave up trying to participate and just thought about clothes.
  • I really want to read Walden and Civil Disobedience. In fact I'd almost say I'm excited about reading it.
  • I must now take a shower and go to bed. Au revoir, mon amis!


  1. Good luck reading Walden!

    You haven't read The Catcher in the Rye? Such an awesome book. But may I even advise waiting the summer? It may not resonate with you as much the younger you are. Just my two cents.

    Adios, mi amiga!

  2. I loved The Catcher In The Rye. Read Salinger's Nine Stories while you're at it! And I am on a quest to read more, too, actually. This summer will be full of it!
