inside a tapered building

I called this blog Agony of Da Feet because my feet hurt just thinking about running. I haven't decided whether or not just to focus on my sister's thought or just use what she writes as a springboard.

Speedwork! I wish I could make speedy work of my homework but this shit is kinda tough this term. Well it is mostly just Econ that is kickin my ass a little bit. I love the random collection of data side of things but the fiscal/unemployment/production possibilities aspects are brutal. This means more than my normal amount in hopes of maybe grasping more and increasing my understanding. Well we’ll see what happens. I will probably get my lowest GPA this term. Next year is my last term at CNM so let’s see if I can’t turn it around.

I love my GF Wife! She does way too much for me! I'm spoiled and I really don't deserve it. I just wanted you all to know that I'm really thankful to have her in my life. ~Chix -V

TUEEEESDAY! (Tuesdays with more E)

So I have been thinking of starting up a new blog for awhile. Was too lazy to try to come up with anything original so I had a NOVEL idea---> mock my sister.I got rather exCITEd about this. So, today is all about book, huh? I can speak VOLUMES on this subject. I will try to comment on all of Shell's books. Here Goes: Today's Top Ten list has to do with books! For the past 4 and a half years she has written down every book that she's read...because....I don't know. she says because she's weird but i think it might be more clinical than that. The Shack by William Paul Young - I agree this is a Great book! and I too would put it in my top ten! This book has one of the most brutally painful openings I have ever read but finishes beautifully. Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli - I liked Harry Potter when it was Called Star Wars Choke by Chuck Palahniuk - Chuckie boy is a brilliant writer after you read Choke check out Invisible Monsters and Snuff. Dude has issues! Without You by Anthony Rapp - Good book, but really? Top Ten? The God Box by Alex Sanchez - Haven't read this, but I'll check it out for kid sis. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I have the trilogy but have yet to read it. I you are into dystopian teen fiction The Giver is a pretty fantastical book. Push (Precious) by Sapphire - Great book. Reminiscent of Flowers for Algernon. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd - GREAT MOVIE! I have no desire to read the book though. If I want to read civil rights movement era book I'll choose Crazy in Alabama. Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk - Good Book! The Know-It-All by AJ Jacobs - My sister turned me on to this book. Have to admit it was very good but doen't hold a candle to Jacobs other book The Year of Living Biblically. So she has somegood books listed thought it is a very different list of books than what i would have chosen. Have you read any of these: Swan Song by Robert McCammon, 1984 by George Orwell, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Oryx & Crake and Year of the Flood both by Margaret Atwood, Laughing to Keep from Crying by Langston Hughes... There are a lot more ask if you want a new list. -V
