The future has arrived
We got a new computer, and new moniter for our old one, and we are getting another one. Why does someone need so many computers? one may ask, well, World of Warcraft is a major contributer. What is so great about WoW? another may ask, I don't really know, it doesn't make you smarter, (besides going to parties and over hearing nerd and actually comprehending what their saying.) or stronger, it's as useful as watching TV I guess. But because we are so addicted, I might stay up with my computer all night and wait for it to be done loading. It's currently at 15% and says about 7 hours. I don't think my dad will let me stick to that pledge. Another thing in the shiny-new catogory- 2009! I wrote a letter to my future self and put in a jones soda bottle that I drank on new years eve- a message in a bottle to yourslef, revolutionary. I want to do better in school and actually work towards my future- even though Jr. High makes it sound really corny, it's true, we should start working towards our future. I also plan to help my dad clean out the basement and getting the floors and walls done before 2010. I've also been writing in my journal, which is kinda pointless to me, but the wrtten word is better than improvision typing. Dad got me this book for Christmas, Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry I was actually at the bookstore with dad on Christmas Eve when I mbrought the book to him and quipped, "I like this author." He just nodded and added it to the books we we're considering buying. So that was funny to open it the next morning. I really like it so far. I'm really minto reading these last few weeks. Ever since Dec. 22nd to be exact, I was driving to my uncles house to babysit my cousins with my uncle and Grampa. "What do you want to be, Livvy?" Grampa asked me, I was pleased that he thought I was grown up enough to not add when you grow up. "I want to go to BYU and get a Literature Degree to become a writer. but I'm going to train to be a macanic to help out my sisters, and as a fall back job since they are scarce now." I recited proudly. Dad says he will support me to train to be a macanic, because I am opposite stero-type for a macanic, he thinks it will be funny- and he thinks it's smart too. Grampa nodded wisely and said, "You should read a lot, I can pick up a book, read the first page and tell If it's a book I want to read." I always tease my Grampa, but I really do look up to and admire him, so I tried to soak every word he says like a sponge. So that's me right now- set on my future and staying up until WoW is down-loaded.
