So it looks like I’m a quarter of the way towards my 1000 page goal! We’ll see if it happens. Right now, I’m reading my first ever Margaret Atwood book! And it’s really cool. I used to love The Odyssey and I always felt horrible for I’m really enjoying this. It’s like Penelope wrote an autobiography. Really cool! Haven’t had anything to eat or drink since the last update, but I’m REALLY getting hungry for lunch now :p It may be time for some mini-tacos :p Yeah, I like junk food. Ok…time to go outside for a little while I think. I’m starting to feel like I need some fresh air!
