Reading a book by Rachel Maddow, conservative parents concerned.
Hello, again readers, whom ever you maybe. Is that the proper use of whom? I’m not entirely sure. Please comment the correct usage below.
I’ve been reading a lot recently. I’ve been reading a lot of one book, to be more specific. When one is a slow reader, one spends a lot of time not making progress. Either I’m getting faster or Michael Crichton’s Prey is an easy read. I finished it about four days. It was an excellant read. Being a thriller about nanobot technology, I couldn’t put it down. (<—clever sentence structure, right? I’m trying new things)
I had started reading Drift by Rachel Maddow, hence the opening sentence. It was one of four books I got for free before school ended. It was the last week of school, and I needed to purchase batteries for Cecilia, the name I’ve given to my camera. I went to the University book store, and the cashier informed me that I had $103 in cub cash. Cub cash is non refundable. I don’t know where the money came from. When I bought some snacks at a vending maching the week before the card reader said my account balance was $1.03. My parents didn’t deposit money into my account so where the money came from is a mystery to me. But it had to be spent before the semester ended, otherwise it would vanish. So, I spent it on books. I got The Ten, Make That Nine, Habits of Very Organized People. Make That Ten. by Steve Martin, Drift by Rachel Maddow, The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and The Pale King by David Foster Wallace. I finished The Ten, Make That Nine, Habits of Very Organized People. Make That Ten. on the first day out of school. It was just a compilation of Steve Martin’s tweets and funny replies by his followers. It was a fun read.
When I started this post I had also started reading Drift, but I decided to go in another direction before I get to deep and started reading The Happiness Project. It has some really good tips for being a happier person. Atleast it does so far (I’ve only made it through the intro and chapter 1). I was going to try to go to bed on time tonight, like the book suggests, but that didn’t happen. Did you know that getting an extra hour of sleep at night causes the same ammount of happiness as recieving a $60,000 raise does. That’s crazy to me, but it’s worth a shot. So, I’m going to bed.
Good night readers!
