You’re Gonna Miss This
August 15, 2010 § Leave a comment
Guys, I’m lame.
I spent almost all of my second-to-last Saturday before school sleeping! I’m just going to say that I’m hardcore sleeping these few days to make up for all the sleep I’m going to lose once school starts.
I did, however, make a quick trip to Walmart and Borders after dinner. It was kind of crazy because right when I turned the radio on, I heard this:
“She was staring out that window, of that SUV
Complaining, saying I can’t wait to turn 18
She said I’ll make my own money, and I’ll make my own rules…
You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this…”
This is from the song “You’re Gonna Miss This” by Trace Adkins. My favorite, favorite thing about music is when a song just seems like it’s talking to you directly. I’m always so excited when I hear a song that’s completely true about me, personally. Anyways, I know I’m going to miss this… Summer, high school, living at home, being with my parents.
I’m a little (very) late to the game, but I just got my summer reading books (!!). I think I’m in a lotta trouble, as I have a week to read 3 books and one of em is 601 pages. Uh oh! I’m so up for the challenge though, and I’m pretty positive that I’ll be done by the first bell on the first day 😀
I’m like three pages into Wuthering Heights. I have a feeling that this is one of those books that is so incredibly hard to start, but will become good in the middle. As a lover of Jane Austen books, Little Women, Jane Eyre, and the likes, I’m hopeful that Emily Bronte is going to be just as satisfying to my literary appetite.
The thing is, I love, love, love to read. Most people know me as a writer– I’m crazy about writing. But even before writing became my passion, I was checking out sixteen books a week at the local public library. My sister and I share the habit of being head-over-heels for books of all sorts and we make so many trips to the library. Summer reading is my guilty pleasure because as uncool as it is, it gives me the opportunity to read the classics, since I never really find the time to start one otherwise. Sadly, I haven’t been reading much this summer since I’ve been so occupied. I’m so ready to get back on the reading train, starting with the required happiness! Afterwards, I really want to get into some Walt Whitman!
Off to read now,
