Yesterday was fun but it would have been better with a friend than by myself. My friend might come over today instead, I hope so.

Day 5--A book you should have read in school.

One thing I like about not being a kid anymore is not having to go to school. I hated school. Most kids hate school but I really hated it, not only for the usual normal reasons kids hate school but also because I was bullied and because I was one of those smart kids who thinks for themselves and one of the unstated purposes of school is to teach kids to conform. One sort of symptom of that is them trying to tell you what books they want you to read instead of choosing your own books.
Getting that off my chest I'm going to make a kind of unusual choice here. Any Jeeves and Bertie Wooster book. They're very funny and they always cheer me up when I'm feeling bad. I didn't discover them until after I quit college (yes, I was bullied in college, it isn't just little kids who bully).
