    2 Words: SUMMER READING!!

    My school, I'm assuming, probably has the worst reputation for handing out REALLY boring required books to read over the summer. It's not that I don't enjoy reading; that's not it at all. I love reading, a lot. However, does anyone really find required books "enjoyable", or just plain old boring? It's crazy, utter madness, I tell you!

    BTW, I just felt like mentioning that I bought this really cute Kyo [Furuba] back pack online for school! He's so cute when he's mad, in cat form, hehe. ^_^

    Ahuh... and then those people, years to come, get fined $50 for the book. Happened to me almost every year.

    So I just blacked out all the important words and page numbers in the index!

    I hated all the books I was given to read in high school french class (I'm a french-speaker) for a particular reason, each one of them (and there were many) was a tragedy, because the teacher, a pessimistic king, wanted to make us feel bad about the world, sentences such as "how can you be optimistic? No one is anymore." were his kind...

    Now we had such books in English as well (ie 1984, Death of a salesman), interesting ones, but I disliked them as well. Because I'm really just at heart and love happy endings as well. That a story is entirely based on a man or/and woman that is doomed from the beginning of the story, during it and until the very end where he/she dies, strikes me as stupid when I have to read tons of them.

    I am despite this dislike of summer reading (and school reading from the rest of the year as well) very in love with books, and my favourite author is Asimov, followed by Tolkien, followed by Robert Ludlum. So you can see I like quite different type of stories.

    University obliged readings (not summer ones) are more interesting, considering the fact that you chose what you study and therefore what kind of books you get.

    Ugh, Death of a Salesman was terrible. Anyone ever have to read Red Badge of Courage, that may be the most boring book i've ever had to read.

    Thankfully, my school doesn't exhibit a "reading list" for the summer. Shit, the only thing I've read this summer was Harry Potter. I don't like reading. Not when forced anyway...

    I don't go to school anymore! My goal is to read absoluley nothing that's on paper for the summer. Actually nothing on paper until I go to Full Sail next year. Then it's back to the books, but nothing like those horrible novels from gradeschool.
