Monday’s SUCK!

Monday’s Monday’s…. Monday’s.

Every Monday I feel like I haven’t completed anything and that the week is literally going to punch me in the face.  I have been reading this book and that’s about all I feel like I am doing right.

I have chosen to read this book called “Maximum Rider: The Angel Experiment” by James Patterson (413 pages). I have read a little bit more than half of the book and it’s really interesting.

My favorite character so far is a Fang, he’s a good guy but very mysterious. He loves one of the main characters named Max, he is really sweet to her.

Monday’s are the days that I actually get mentally prepared for failure. No just kidding it just feels like that.

I have so many assignments to do this week and I am really regretting not doing more work over the weekend, but my week before was so busy and tiring and I needed some sleep to help me be able to actually be ready for this week…

So far today I have got my oil changed and my tires rotated… ADULTING AT IT’S FINEST, MY FRIENDS. Also I have washed clothes and completed two assignments and I still feel like I haven’t done anything. It’s because it’s Monday.  Monday’s make everything feel like you haven’t done anything.

 

When I think of everything that I have to do this week I really want to pull my hair out.

All the assignments. Practices that I have to chauffeur for the kids I babysit. The tutoring I have to take the kids I babysit. TUTORING FOR MYSELF. Test I have to take.  The papers I have to write. My best friend’s birthday this Friday. And to top it off babysitting ALLLLLLL this weekend.

Getting mentally prepared for this week is going to be the death of me.

I still have to drive all the way back to my apartment today from my home town… I am not ready for this week what so ever.

Wish me luck if you don’t mind.

Let me tell you about “When”

The book “When would you want to know?”(323pages) by Victoria Laurie was a very very interesting book. I couldn’t even put it down for the longest time.  The book is about this high school Junior girl named Maddie Fynn and she sees everyone’s death date.

when
When would you want to know? Personally I wouldn’t want to know

The death date appears on top of everyone’s  head, just floating there, in the order of month-day-year.

I really like the book because I think it would take a very strong person to be able to know all that information and still continue on with living everyday.

“Most people want to know ifthey can change the date, if they can get more time. I tell them I don’t know. And that’s what kills me”(page 7)

-Maddie Fynn

She goes through a lot of personally challenges and has a run in with the law. And that’s when everything escalates.

Spoilers are coming so close eyes!

Maddie’s father dies when Maddie was very young and that is how her and her family found out what exactly those dates were that she was seeing. After her father dying her mother became an alcoholic. Maddie’s life drastically changed and her family started having financially difficulties. So she decided on using her gift for money.

One day she told a mother and her young son that her son was going to die soon. Soon after telling the mother the date her son went missing the day Maddie said he was going to die. The mother got in contact with the police and they took Maddie into custody for questioning about a homicide investigation.

That’s all I’m going to give you, so you can open your eyes now!

So by the little spoiler detail I just gave you it seems interesting, right? I think so. I was very invested in what was going to happen to Maddie. She’s a very strong young lady and I I think she has been through so much and deserves to have a normal life.

Crazy week, Crazy Life

I have so much homework that I just might cry… might. I have started reading this book for my English class, it’s called “When would you want to know?” by Victoria Laurie. I am on page 61 so far and it’s actually very interesting.

when
I don’t think I would want to know…

This girl named Madelyn knows the exact time someone will die. And so far in the book people that are in law enforcement are trying to figure out just how she can know when a certain person in the story dies.

When I started seeing the numbers-these death dates-they ran together as one long stream, but now my mind puts in the dashes

I haven’t been able to fully sit down and read the whole book because I am so busy trying to study for an A&P test, that comes every other week, and trying to take care of two girls that I babysit.

Oh also another girl now as well because their parents decided to get an foreign exchange student. No big deal I really like the girl. Me and her have a lot in common and she’s fun to be around. But it seems now, more than ever, I don’t have time for anything or anyone.

The girls I babysit I pick them up right after school (two different schools by the way) and I take them to get food. They both do sports so I need to make sure they eat so they don’t die on the court. Their practices are usually at TWO different places and TWO different times. And I usually pick both of them up and bring the home and try to help one with homework.

The foreign exchange student has tutoring for school once a week and also does dance so she is not as busy but still time consuming.

It just so happened that this weekend the girls both have a tournament in Daytona and their parents could not attend for the first day of the gamesssssssss(plural games, as in multiple). So when their parents came and the foreign exchange student came to Orlando because it’s a lot cheaper for hotels and the girls parents want the foreign exchange student to experience the most she can. Fun.

As of now I am studying my butt off in the hotel room and trying to get in all my assignments turned in because I am a good student! Sometimes. Well I try at least. Dang.

Overall my week has been spent mostly in my car and I hope to read this book and get a good grade on the assignments that my teacher is going to assign us to do.

Review on Lean In

I read the book Lean In: Women, Work, and The Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg(182pages) and it was a a very insightful book on her challenges to become who she is today. I liked that she was grasping the intention on how women should not just justify that we are women but to learn and experience failure or success and let that define us.

She gives a lot of life stories that I really enjoyed.  There are stories that go from personal to professional life. Sandberg is the Harvard-educated chief operating officer of Facebook and a feminist.

She is the prime example of a feminist to me. She talks about so many obstacles that she has faced and conquered. I really like how she expresses just because she’s a female doesn’t mean she’s going to let that define her. She has worked at Google and at Facebook.

All of the stories that she tells about her life gives me a type of determination to do whatever I feel like doing.

She also talks about being a good leader and not wanting you to feel like you can’t lead if you are a female. I know some women would think “I wouldn’t let me being a female make me think I can’t lead,” but she explains how in being an a high power over people would make you feel different. She also explains that even when you get that specific feeling that you should overcome it and not let anything get in your way.

“The ability to listen is a important as the ability to speak”

The quote above I think is very true because most people don’t LISTEN they wait to reply. She gives ways that has worked for her to help her get to the top and be a leader.
