So, Larry’s Girls by Thomas Green Jr. was an interesting book. This was this year’s gag gift from my mother, and what a gag it was. We all know how much I love reading and she said she bought this book to “Help a brotha out”. After reading this book I can see that he is going to need all the help he can get. It was not just the typos, repeated paragraphs and pages, run on sentences, and all around mess of the book that made it bad. It was the “story” line. When the author described it to my mother he said that it was book that would suit a college educated woman due to the fact that it is set in a college scene. Well, I don’t know how many college educated women that he has talked to, but this was not suitable.
With the large amount of reading that I have had to do for school this year, I’ve actually resorted to thumbing through magazines to do something different. Now, I did not read magazines through out high school, and just started to indulge in them in college. I now am a subscriber to three magazines I believe. The only problem with that is, that I now have all of these magazines around my room, unread, because I don’t even have time for those! No wonder my brain is fried without any type of creative or imaginary things running rampant through it. I mean it’s not crazy to want to lose yourself into a different world right? To just take a break from everything that is around you and escape without the cost of a vacation… that’s okay right?
So, first let me proclaim that I am guilty of not actually finishing the whole book… I just didn’t have time to!
So, I’m thinking that I need to start a YouTube channel. Maybe that will help me out. I’m terrible at getting the word out about my blog. So, maybe bringing it to the sort of non reading world will help out my case. It’s kind of awkward because I’ve never shown my face until now, but I’ll try to get over it. Look for it in my tweets @90sbornreader our find my youtube page… also 90sbornreader. It will take some time to really build up my youtube page, but my blog took the same amount of time. Thanks! Check out my first post here!
Not only do I love books, but I love movies as well. Especially books that have been turned into movies. I love to see exactly, or almost exactly, what the author had intended for his or her characters. What they looked like, how they move and how they react to different things.
So of course we know the most stressful part of any person in school’s life is finals week. Teachers and parents a like try and tell you that it’s just a review of what you learned during the school year, but that kind of logic makes no sense to us at the time. Instead we stay up late, do all nighters (mmm not me), mainline caffeine (that’s more my style), and possibly have a couple of panic attacks just to get through the exam. Then afterwards, we walk out of their with different opinions.
