In the past I was a quick, adament reader, but over time it slipped away. So it would take me weeks upon weeks, even a month or so, to finish an average sized book. It was pathethic :P. This past week & 1/2, or two weeks though, I've been on a roll. I finished Prescription for a Superior Existence, which I'll briefly summarize at a later date, and I cannot set down the London murder mystery, The Victoria Vanishes.
I spent my afternoon working at the soccer/lacrosse tournament park that I have been employed for the past two summers. My wage has been raised to $8.50 an hour, which is wonderful to me :), and hopefully I'll have a decent number of working hours this year. I talked to my parents and we decided that instead of receiving a laptop as a birthday present, I'll work throughout the summer. Then at the end I'll contribute money, and they'll pay a good portion, and I will get a nicer laptop than I would have originally.
So in a week it will be my birthday :O! Actually, since it's 11:00ish, my big day will basically be over I'm assuming, but still. I don't have any plans for it yet, I guess I'm counting on my friends to come up with something fun to do, they should be good at that. But I'm debating if I should come up with something myself to save them the hassle.. I don't know. It doesn't really matter much right now because I cannot think of anything fun to do anyways. I'll just be happy goofing off with my friends :).
I contemplated having a party at my house. Two years ago I had one in my yard/ the hay barn, and it was pretty chill. I illuminated the haymow with strings of decorative lights, played music from the ipod, and a few brave souls, including myself, sat for awhile in my ice-cold little inflatable pool. It was a nice time, but I don't think I could duplicate it, or surpass it, in the limited time frame I have. Unless I made it for a later date, I just don't know. Maybe I'll just leave it at doing something low-key with my closest friends, parties are expensive anyways.
One thing I'm wicked excited for is my new bookcase! Tom is building me one, and then I get to paint it however I want :D! The one I have now is pathetically insufficent. None of my books, aside from the really small ones, can be placed vertically inside of it, they must be stacked horizantally. It was a hand-me-down from my dad, so I'll definitely keep it. I just need more space for my freshly printed friends :)
Well, I signed myself up to work again tomorrow from 10-3:30, so I best be heading off for bed. I know this post wasn't very enlightening, but I was in the mood to write something anyways. Expect a better one soon.
