I've lost two followers recently. I've always found it strange that on blogger, we have "followers." It's like we're cult leaders and don't even know it. I'm sure this is not a novel thought, yet might I suggest it be changed to "readers" instead? That way I won't feel somehow less powerful if I lose any.
In other news, I made Varsity girls tennis! I can't wait to play matches, have fun and get in shape, all at the same time. Seriously, it isn't translating well, but I'm deliriously excited. I'm so euphoric I don't even care if that was redundant!
In other, other news, I'm slowly getting my voice back. Thank you for all the well wishes. I still sound like a pubescent boy. And have to blow my noise quite frequently. I am getting better, though.
In English class we're going to start reading The Great Gatsby, the quintessential American novel. Today, as a introduction to it, we discussed the American Dream. We were asked to define it and to determine whether or not it has changed over the years. Now I want to pose the same question to you all. What is the American Dream and has it changed over the years? If so, how? I'm also interested to hear non-Americans' take on this. That means you, Ruth, dear!
