As promised, now that I’m done complaining here are some things I do like:
- getting another hour of sleep this morning.
- antibiotics finally making some difference with my “not-strep-throat” illness.
- the Romgi has a full-time job lined up that lasts all summer and continues part-time next school year! Which means we don’t have to move, AND we’ll be getting some money!
- General Conference this weekend; Elder Cook’s talk most of all.
- resolving to be more cautious about what I read, and turn to non-fiction more often, in order to be educated rather than simply entertained.
- hospital socks (I didn’t get a new pair, though!).
- classes end next week.
- thanks to me being a good test-taker, even in high school, I still have money in my California Governor’s Scholarship fund and it will pay for 2 independent study classes. That way I don’t need to do crazy-busy classes on campus this summer, and I can stay right on track for finishing in December.
- watching jr learn how to crawl is amazing. Also, she shrieks and yowls when she doesn’t know how to move. It’s adorable, in a weird way.
- you guys read my blog even though sometimes it must be fairly dull. Thanks, guys.
Two non-fiction books you might find educational AND entertaining are “The Disappearing Spoon (and Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World From the Periodic Table of the Elements)” by Sam Kean (ISBN 978-0-316-05164-4) and “Napoleon’s Buttons” by Penny le Couteur & Jay Burreson (ISBN 1-58542-220-7).
Both are obviously “chemistry” books of sorts, but the storytelling is decent and the Burke-like conclusions are delightful. And the fact that you know what I mean by “Burke-like” demonstrates that you would enjoy these books regardless of your love for or disdain of chemistry.
I have yet to find your blogs boring. Quite the contrary. I wish I had the time and interest in other people to blog like you do.
