Proof of the Need to Continually Try Again

So my New Year's Resolution was a thing. Remember how it's now May and I clearly haven't done my resolution at all? Yeah, so sorry. But it's summer, so I'll hopefully have more time and I'm back now!

I'm also not doing the book challenge thing because I'm actually doing a different thing. Don't worry, I'll save that idea for another time. It will be done! And also the new idea is still about books, so really there's no need to be sad at all.

The New Idea: My friend Becca and I have started a book club!

Want to join? Cool, I thought you would. Just read along and chat with your friends about it at a tea party.

This has been something I have wanted to do for years now. I have been indescribably jealous of old ladies' ability to organize and plan book clubs. But now it's finally happening!

We decided to start off slow, reading a book a month this summer and then when the school year starts again, we'll see what we can do.

The Plan:
May: Hamlet, William Shakespeare
June: The Book Thief, Markus Zusack
July: The Giver, Lois Lowry OR Jellicoe Road, Melina Marchetta OR something else entirely that I (hopefully) haven't read yet [still a work in progress]
August: The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

Are You Excited Yet?

So, December was a thing. Sorry. 

My New Year's Resolution (in part) is to be better at posting on here. In an attempt to do that, I will be doing this:

And then reviewing those books here. 

Get excited. I'm excited.

To Whom it May Concern,

I'm not usually one for cold cereal (props on coming up with that, by the way), but I do love Kellogg's Frosted Flakes. I especially love that there are prizes in the box again. And they're spoons, so that's cool. Props again on bringing that back; it's been too long. (Although, I would suggest sticking it in the bottom of the box - sure, kids today expect things fast and easy, but waiting was part of the fun, plus the kids could learn a thing or two about patience.)

The point of this letter, though, is to say that I want to collect all of your spoons. Maybe it's just good marketing to put more Elsas in the boxes than Nemos or Mikes, so that kids (and nostalgic college students) convince their parents to keep buying your product until they've completed the set. But perhaps you've failed to consider that those college students are counting pennies to remain college students and, though they dearly wish it were possible, simply can't buy forty cereal boxes until they get a Nemo or a Mike. Just a thought.

I currently have two Elsas, which isn't a bad thing (I did love Frozen), but it is slightly problematic for my bank account. I mean, this way if one Elsa spoon is dirty, I still have a backup to eat Frosted Flakes with. But what would I do with three Elsas? Have a backup for my backup? But where would that end?

Honestly, I don't know what you could do to fix this dilemma. I guess I just wanted to bring it to your attention. And also suggest making more collectible character spoons.

If you were to read this letter and then decide to take action, I would ask you to keep in mind that I get very good grades and plan on becoming a productive member of society.

Thank you very much.

PS- Is there an email for this kind of thing? While there is a phone number on your website, you could consider putting an email up as well, for those customers that have homebody tendencies and don't like talking on the phone (ie me).

You are Formally Invited to Attend

Crepe party! Friday, October 17th,  10 am, my place.

Be there or be square.

(Silly geese, you guys can't actually come to my place and not be stalkers. I was just bragging about crepes.)

Guys! It was a thing! (I got to sing with the choir for a stake conference.)

Also, I love music! And I love choir! And I love church!

And I'm a very happy individual right now!
