I think one of these days I will have to fiddle with the layout of this journal. Perhaps that will make it more interesting and I'll be more likely to use it as often as I should. Except not today because I am already procrastinating on my reading. Great sign for this semester, I can tell.

I start my classes tonight. Or, well. I see if I can get into one class tonight. I'm not sure of my chances, but at least I gave it every effort. The other one I'm just sitting in on, though I'm not certain about what that will entail. So far I've gotten ahead on some reading and it's really interesting.

It's been about a week since I've sprained my ankle. So now I've sprained both, though years apart from one another. I suppose that evens out. Walking isn't too much of a problem, and I'm still hoping I might be able to go to the gym next week. Not sure, though.

I've really enjoyed reading as much as I have lately. So far this year I've read 36 books, and I hope to get through 50 before the year is out. Obviously classes will make this somewhat difficult, but I think I'll be able to do it. I recently finished both of Barack Obama's books, and I'm glad I did that before the start of the Democratic National Convention. Also I'm annoyed that I'll miss Hilary Clinton's speech tonight, but I figure I can youtube it tomorrow. Now I'm reading one of McCain's books, Faith of My Fathers. I'd like to read one of his more recent ones, but that would probably involve purchasing it and I'm not sure about that.

Back to reading and a bunch of work.

ETA : Ugh LJ, stop asking me to change my password. Now it's just annoying.

Are you doing the 50bookchallenge? I've tried it the last few years, but I'm always so behind. I think last year I got 26 books, and this year I'm only just hitting 20 now I think. Very sad, considering how much reading I did before moving to Texas. I guess my priorities have changed, perhaps for the worse :(

I'm not doing it, though it looks interesting. I think I just decided on the number 50 because it's something my friend and I talked about, and since I've gotten a good number down, might as well go for the gold. But I mean, I don't even know if I'll make it, given the reading for class I'll be doing and then other things, kind of like you said. Priorities shifting and such, I suppose. Still, I do want to try to read more, instead of doing things like I said in my letter. 20 IS STILL GOOD, DEANA.
