Everybody seems to be into this series right now, and I bought the books a few weeks ago. I suppose I’ll start on those tonight and see what all the hype is about.
I am going to read all of the Harry Potter books (I’m on the second one now). Then I will watch every movie and see the last when it is released. I know I’ve waited until pretty late in the game, but, I’m working on it.
End of school activities got in the way of posting. However, I do have a few things that can be checked off:
I’ve began to actually watch movies and so far I have seen Avatar and Inception. This is a huge deal because I truly NEVER watch movies. Sarah is also about to view Garden State with me, since I haven’t seen it either. She says it’s good, so I believe I’ll enjoy it.
He astounds me.
The fact that he created masterpieces In his head and could never hear their true sound is both tragic and brilliant.
His talent is un-match-able. I’m not even sure thats a word. but I do know that this man was a musical genius.
I’m a riddle in nine syllables,
An elephant, a ponderous house,
A melon strolling on two tendrils.
O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!
This loaf’s big with its yeasty rising.
Money’s new-minted in this fat purse.
I’m a means, a stage, a cow in calf.
I’ve eaten a bag of green apples,
Boarded the train there’s no getting off.
—Metaphors - Sylvia Plath
Sarah brought this, along with a huge stack of amazing books, to my house. I love anything that shows the true wonder in small children. I love it because it is amazing to see pure truth, rather than the censored words we spill out of our mouths. Pure and simple truth.
I am the type of person who is constantly looking for a new way to challenge myself, otherwise I become bored and feel like I’m leading an entirely pointless existence. Being a vegetarian of six years, I had decided, around late November of last year, that I wanted to try veganism out. I only lasted for about a month. I think the main attribution to my failure was my lack of knowledge on the subject. When asked to explain why I chose to become vegan, I found myself stumbling over my words and not knowing exactly what to say. So, I’ve decided, what better time to become better informed on the subject than now? I may even give it another shot.

As part of the quest I am discovering coffee. Through Sarah’s aid to my coffee machine at home, I’ve realized reading a book is much more pleasant while drinking from a mug. I’ve come to realize, coffee is a good friend of knowledge.
