The first week of mix tape posting has been awesome! Though words cannot properly express my gratitude, a huge thank you goes to all my lovely contributors and anyone who has followed and/or commented already!
West Side Story was great. I was completely in awe of the elaborate set and the dancing was superb. I wish I had more to say about it but I don't.
I finally finished reading The Scarlet Letter today. In retrospect, it probably should not have been the first book I read this summer. It dragged on the first 15 chapters and thus I got discouraged from reading further for a while. In spite of that, I liked it well enough. I wouldn't, however, be too upset if I don't read the word 'ignominy' again for a while. Just watch; I'll probably be plagued with the phenomenon (alliteration, anyone?) of seeing that word everywhere for the next week or so.
Now I have a little more than half a summer to try and read the other eleven on my list. Wish me luck. I'm about to start The Crucible, a play by Arthur Miller about the Salem Witch trials. When my brother kindly checked it out from the library for me, he manged to pick up probably the oldest, most mangled copy there.
I wish I felt happier. I think I'll try to find solace in my small backyard in the blazing heat. You have no idea how deeply I envy those who live near wondrous forests and fields that are perfect for exploring and taking pictures in.
