not enough time in a day

Andrew from work gave me a spider ring today. I like it. I hate real spiders, though.

It's so hard to get to where you want to be in life. I want to go to college in Chicago so I have to apply for financial aid, scholarships, the college, make a good grade on the SATs. I wonder if it's worth it sometimes. It probably isn't. It's what I want to do. I hope Lee is serious about moving.

I finished Ham on Rye FINALLY. I enjoyed the book a lot. It was about rejection and the absurdity of how people think they have to be normal and fake. It's also about a slightly disturbed man that is pretty sure he can live his life using fighting as his defense, alcohol as his support, and writing as his passion.

Big Brother Big Sister hooked it up with a little sister. Her name is Zamantha. She's a hispanic girl that is repeating the 5th grade. I hope I can be a great influence in her life and encourage her to do well in school.

Tomorrow I will start my work outs. I'm glad that I finally have a routine, but then I don't.

Megan is supposed to come over to talk about the zine. I hope we don't get distracted this time. I can tell it's really important to both of us. we just seem to get side tracked.

I had a typo in my first comment so I deleted it, and now there's a record of it. Noooo.

I didn't know you were going to start the zine again. Are you doing strictly music?
I also didn't know about you being a big sis. That's really sweet and giving of you. I don't think giving is the word I'm looking for. I've been trying to get myself to volunteer at the library for months, which is something to do to get myself ahead in life professionally, and I can't seem to find the humility to step away from pretending to do homework. I'm really proud of you for dedicating yourself to someone. I was in a mentor program in elementary school and I loved eating lunches with my mentor and talking to her. I was always jealous of all of the other little kids when their parents would come eat lunch with them at school, and it was really nice having someone take me out to eat. Just knowing that someone outside her family will take the time outside of their day for her will mean a lot to her. You're doing a great thing.
