A junior from my high school was killed riding his bike by a drunk driver. My brother knew him cause they were both on football and his friends were very close with him. Its so horrible. I feel for both his family and the family of the man who killed him. What a horrible burden.

Can't really say much besides that. My life is fine. Im in the process of trying to find a job. Last exam on the 28th, last class on the 18th.

I did well on my two exams. I own psych, I did a grade higher than last exam. Went to School of Ed meeting, for further reference I will call it SOE. I need 30 education credits, I dont know if I am in the winter or fall cohort yet, if fall then I will start this coming fall. Besides that I need to still finish my major and minor, history and psych which includes 18 more credits for history and 19 more for psych. I will start student teaching either fall or winter of my senior year and start observing fall or winter of my junior year. NOT TO MENTION I DONT HAVE A CAR AND DONT KNOW HOW I WILL GET TO SCHOOL. I am really skeptical I am going to finish on time. I will prolly have to graduate a semester late. Im not that bummed about it. Im thinking about doing this program through SOE called Teachers for Tomorrow, which deals with underpriveledged and urban schools. They also offer scholarships and I heard you can get your masters paid for by them. I'm still really conflicted though because I still wanna go to law school. My plan right now is to teach for a while and go back. I just cant decide when I should take the LSATs then. Hm.

Ricks Bday is today! Im taking him out to dinner and we are gonna go hang out in detroit. Im really bummed we dont get Good Friday or the day after Easter off. I mean we get like two weeks for chriskwanzuak but yet Easter, a more holier holiday gets NOTHING. I mean this is suppose to be our most important day. I just dont understand the logic. And is also Passover so its not like its only a christian thing. Im still pumped to watch the ten commandments this weekend if its on, it wasnt on last year, wtf. Its prolly my most favorite movie. peace gs.

I have two exams on monday, geology and abnormal psych. Shitty. And I have mentoring training on thursday which means no going out with all the rest of the college kids to get trashed. Alas. My chinese history professor found it amusing to call on my in class the other day and announce to the class how good I am doing. WTF. I think my face turned tomato. I saw my old GSI from middle east history today too, I told him that I got into the Education School(he wrote me a recomm) and that I am taking arabic next year, he suggested I should. I am pretty pumped about arabic but at the same time scared. Its a big deal for me cause so far Ive only taken "safe" classes. Classes I knew I'd be good in. This one, well its a big jump. Ibrahim is gonna be in my class though so Im not so worried. He is arabic and all. I concentrate way too hard on school btw. Im thinking about history and doing research. I wanna write, I wanna go to grad school, I wanna be a ph.d and live in the middle east and ahhh i cant do any of it cause I cant afford it. So instead I become a teacher and maybe if im lucky go to law school. I am so jealous of all the out of state students who have so much money and can go to grad school. I WISH I COULD. yes I am that crazy that I want to go to school MORE after four years. FUCK I LOVE SCHOOL. Ok im gettin carried away.

I do hope, however, that some how I will get to go to the middle east and study abroad. I know with the connections I have made I have the chance of gettin money to do it. Its just hard to convince dad to let me. I mean v went to Haiti, I feel a little safer in Egypt than Haiti.

I also really wanna go the firing range again. Im gonna try to make dad take me soon.

And I miss the econo lodge and UP.

Stolen from darklorelei

1) Total number of books in your house:
Prolly around 100-200 counting my parents sparce collection.

2) The last book you bought was:
I was given Devil in the White City by Erik Larson but I already read it and have it so I bought Reading Lolita in Tehran by Nafisi. I adored it.

3) What was the last book you read before reading this message?
The Death of Innocents: An Eyewitness Account of Wrongful Executions by Sister Helen Prejean, she also wrote Dead Man Walking which as you might know was turned into a movie with Susan Sarandon. Its pretty depressing but makes me realize how flawed our criminal system is, more than I knew before.

4) Write down 5 books you often read or that mean a lot to you.

1. C.S. Lewis Chronicles of Narnia, I have read them all at least a dozen times. I love fantasy and these are my favorite ones. If u dont know(Im not sure how you could not) about the relgious theories behind the book its better not to know before you read them. Cause after you notice it more. But no matter what they are my favorites of all time.
2. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood, I like every single one of her books but this is my favorite. It just shows how amazing she can write and I love her concepts.
3. A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines, I actually love ALL of his books, but this one is my favorite. I still have to read The Autobio of Miss Jane Pittman, but it is ALWAYS checked out, damn u northville patrons. I love the south and therefore gaines.
4. I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb. Don't read She's Come Undone it sucks as does Oprah's list. This book is much better. Its probably one of the only books Ive cried, laughed, and wanted to stop reading because it was so emotional. Its long, so if you wanna read it wait till u have time, its totally worth it.
5. Prozac Nation By Elizabeth Wurtzel is prolly the book that defines me best. It is an amazing memoir about depression and I have never read anything that exempufies depression better than this book.

5) Who are you going to pass the stick to (to three people) and why?
absolute_troop-Michelle, what have u read lately?
i_e4t_paste-Ash, you like to read, any recommendations?
saline_eyes-I have no idea if you like to read but I bet u do.

Two more days, then I get to be lazy. I cant wait for spring break. I have a midterm tomorrow, I had a migraine but I took my meds, now i feel dizy, disoriented, and my stomach hurts. UGH. I am trying to get into a study on migraines through the MHNI michigan health and neorlogical institute cause I want to do as much as I can to help them study this. I havent seen rick in a week, we both had midterms and shit and it sucks. I get to see him tomorrow tho :) I thought my prof for history only had a phd from harvard, apparently he has one from yale too. I dunno why he has two. I really didnt know what the point of it was. His advisor was baiyln, who is prolly the most influential american historian ever and is amazing. I would kill to have him as a mentor. too bad I dont like american history that much. In other news I love vernors.

I just walked back from my review session for Geology in the rain. I love rain. Its invigorating and feels so good when it hits my head. I know water is suppose to symbolize rebirth but its so amazingly true. I love watching the streams in the middle of the road wash away all the dirty and grime. I love the way the drops hit puddles and ripple away. I saw a movie this summer, My Life without Me and she says how standing out in the cold rain with your bare feet is the most amazing experience. To me its reality. You cant know the world till youve stood out in the rain and been drenched. Its real, theres nothing fake about it.

I've been a little bit depressed lately. I'm getting over it though. Or trying to. Spring break is coming up for me on the 26th and I cant wait. I wanna do some crafty thngs and possibly sew myself a shirt. I listened to the whole taking back sunday cd today. My favorite is New American Classic, its good. Cecilia gave me my valentines day present today, a ring, its beautiful with a red stone that round and a little spiral in metal on the edges. Rick gave me a teddy bear with a sweatshirt that says jenny and rick 2005 and these american eagle mints i like. I miss melissa asher. thats about it.
