I'm happy that I got some crap out of the way. Well, I went and took care of transferring to my new apartment and now I am excited (although still dreading moving)! I am just happy I don't have to run around like a mad woman today and I know I have a plan for where I am going to be a month from now. Yay! I still have some random crap to do but that can be taken care of easily. I'm a 'to-do' list kind of girl. So I think I am going to try to get ready for bed early so I can catch up on some sleep.
I finished another book today, The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison. It was sad. That is really what I was left with when I finished. It was told from a child's point of view for the most part, and was the story of a young black girl that prayed for blue eyes so that people would think she was beautiful. It was very interesting, and as I have said before I like reading books told from perspectives that are totally different than my own. I found the blatant descriptiveness of pedofilia to be a little disconcerting (for my own taste), but that's just me!
I also read A Child Called "It" , which happens to be a really graphic story of a child that endured what is considered one of the worst cases of child abuse in California history. Again, disturbing, but educational. It was kind of scary to read how alcohol completely destroyed his family. I'm now reading the sequel, The Lost Boy.
Maybe I should read something a little less depressing for my next book! Ha ha!
