I’m in the process of applying to become an exchange student next year, as I’m sure I’ve probably already mentioned. I realize that the entire application is due in a little over a week, but I’m done worse. I’m sure I’ll get it done.
I don’t know what I’ll do if I’m actually excepted into Rotary. I might actually cry! It’s totally been a dream of mine to be able to go to Japan. I honestly can’t explain it (and trust me, I’ve tried many times).
Today, I forced myself to go out and shoot some photos for photography class. You’d think by the amount of pictures I take on a regular basis, I’d like taking photos. I just have this fear that I’m not getting any good shots and that I don’t know what I’m doing (hey…I’m just a beginner).
It might have gone well. I have no idea though. So it’s kind of killing me.
In Lit class, we’re reading Jane Eyre, and I have to say, I’m loving it. A lot of the kids in my class think the reading load is heavy and the reading itself is confusing, but I’m getting it. It became a lot easier when I started looking specifically for themes I could use in the final paper that’s coming up. I think I actually understand most of it, except for the part where Rochester (nicknamed: Douchester or Roch-douche) is talking to Jane. Even Jane is confused by him, which makes me happy.
If you haven’t read this book yet, I recommend it (I know…I know, you’ve heard this a million times, but still). It’s a very fun book because Jane is such a smart-ass. She makes the book fun to read and easy to understand. It’s also cute how she and Douchester have a thing for each other (even though he’s like 20-odd years older than her). He’s always trying to be settle about it and she’s like not having any of it. So much fun!
I wish I could be as smart-mouthed and quick-witted as Jane. I’m sure my teachers would LOVE that. haha. I’d love to be able to speak my mind without feeling guilty is something hurtful came out.
