Since begining this journey, i feel as though i have matured somewhat. Ok. i probably havent matured at all. i probably have lost countless IQ points and quite a bit of maturity. But I do know things now that i didn't know then. Like when RV people talk about the honeypot, they are not talking about the storage place for Winnie the Pooh's favorite snack. They are talking about black water. Which, in actuallity is brown and not very watery. Trust me, you have not lived untill you have seen Buster take a dump.
But I have gotten a little off topic here.
I came across a facebook group that stated "remember when we were kids and Pluto was still a planet?" Well, random facebook user, yes I do remember. Good times. I look on those memories with fondness.
Like the time I got silly putty in my hair. Or got a head injury going down a metal slide, or the time i fell off my bike or the time I nearly cut my tongue in half while falling out of a tree (I still have the scar). Or the time I neary drowned or the time I got my fingers stuck in the car window.
Let's just say I was accident prone and leave me with what little dignaty I have left.
Actually, scratch that, I still am accident prone. A certain ankle spraining in California comes to mind.
All I'm saying is I don't really think of myself as an adult yet. A lot of people my age want to be treated as adults. To that I say, no thank you. Seriously, to the 14 year olds out there, do you really want a 9 to 5? I am legally a child, so a child I shall be. Bring on the coloring books and Dora the Explorer and the chicken fingers and the ice cream only after you have finished all you dinner. I deserve to be immature at some point so why not now?
Now don't get me wrong, I am preparing myself for the future. I will not always be a kid, but I will remember those days with fondness and comemerate them with Disney movie marathons and colering books the size of encyclopedias. And maybe I will become slightly less clumsy as a grow up. Just kidding, I'll proably trip over my own feet till the day I die
The world is full of books and people who read books and write books and edit books and people who sell books. My point is that we have a culture in which books play an important role. I have a list of go to recomend-able books for assorted age groups and such. I know that you probably have a book that you want everyone to read. But here is my top Five Books That Everyone should read and why.
1.) The Book Theif. Its my favorite-est book. Ever. It's starting to take hold and is required in some advanced English classes. I'm so proud of it. *wipes tear and sniffles a little*
2.) Artemis Fowl. The whole series on this one. Its really great fantasy. But there is plenty of action and such as well.
3.) Two words, Dude. Harry. Potter. Read it. Love it. Or Voldemort will come for you.
4.) So Not Happening by Jenny B. Jones. Or anything by Jenny. Why, you ask? Because Miss. Jones is one of the funniest Christian Chick Liturature Authors, EVER. I laugh histarically whenerver I read anything by her. Plus it's Christian, and therefore, not dirty.
5. The Westing Game. Good book. Quick read. But the main reason this is a favorite is because it is a muder mystery. its so good it makes me want to sing. LAAAAAAAA!
And there are many more that I have read and will read. But I'm running out of material on the to read pile so if you would be so kind as to post recomendations, that would make me really sing. LAAAA!!! LAAAAAA!!!!! LAAAAAAAAA!!!!
(Just remember that I have read many books. My fantastic cousin Morgan can testify, she has like half my books)
Well... Maybe she has more like 2/3. The library has about 1/3. I know that doesnt add up because i have like 1/6 or 1/8 or 1/10. It feels like 1/10.
Bye! And thanks again to Morgan for babysitting my books!
