Well, all of my "I'm going to be a good blogger and blog at least once a week" intentions seem to have gone to pot. My life is so crazy right now, I keep putting things like this off till tomorrow. But guess what! Tomorrow never comes, so I never update my blog! Ah, well, no one is perfect. And my life really has been crazy. I ended up have to change what classes I am taking this semester because the college changed the time on one of them, creating a schedule conflict. It was totally God though, because I was really starting to want to take an English course this semester, but I didn't know how I was going to fit it in. But now, instead of taking 3 PE and 1 Math class, I am taking Yoga and Step Aerobics (2 PE), Pre-Algebra and Freshman Comp. God worked it our for me! School starts on Monday. I am very excited about all of my classes and learning new and exciting things.
I bought my textbooks last week, and wow, is God amazing! I was able to buy all four of the textbooks I needed on Amazon marketplace for a grand total of $60, including S&H!!! I looked them up other places, and they would have cost over $300 normally!! Granted, I got used books, but who needs a brand new textbook for college? You're just going to re-sell or throw it away at the end of the semester anyway.
I finished reading "Sense and Sensibility" on Sunday night. I have to say that it is one of my favorite books. It is so well written, so emotional and enthralling. I identify with both Elinor and Marianne, but more so with Marianne. I like to think that I have a similar level of passion and vivacity, and I too have had a Willoughby in my life. But like Elinor, I tend to be more reserved in expressing my deepest feelings. The book itself is just beautiful. Jane Austen had a gift for shaping words into the most engrossing stories. Her characters are so real, so easy to empathize with. Now that I am done with "Sense and Sensibility", I am on to "Pride and Prejudice".  I have read that one a few times before, but its been a couple years, and every new reading brings the fresh perspective of more experience in the world and familiarity with the story.
This weekend we are having an huge yard sale, and this past week has been spent organizing things, and the rest of the week is going to be spent in the same way. And, looking forward to that, I think that I shall sign off and head to bed. Goodnight world!
