A day in the life…
So much to write and yet…That would require effort. At the moment, I’m a bit sleepy, but what the heck, why not write till I finally fall asleep. So this will be my poorly spelled stream of consciousness as I wait for slumber to finally catch up with me.
Where to beginnith? Today, I bought two books at the local library. The first one was “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. I’ve skimmed through a few pages and it’s looking good so far. First major point I’ve learned in the book is TFAR. Thoughts lead to feelings. Feelings lead to actions. Actions lead to results. Makes sense. Don’t know why, but sounds like something the Yoda Meister would write.
I also bought me a German English, English German dictionary. I plan on relearn German sometime this year and will definitely need a dictionary. I’ll work on my German later, but right now, I’m working on Italian. I have this great book and I’ve already gone through it once. Now, I’m going through it a second time to ‘solidify’ what I’ve learned. Then, I’ll move onto a very intensive few weeks of studying another Italian grammar book. Then after that, I still have my Ancient Egyptian book to go through…I’ve learned some stuff already, but then got sidetracked recently and so somehow wound up going back to my Italian. La ti da, que sera, sera.
Other books I seriously WANTED to buy, but realistically had no room to store were:
=A book on Emily Dickinson poems. She is such a wonderful poet, isn’t she?
=A compilation of Ann Rice’s Interview with a Vampire, LeStat and Queen of the Damned. This is an excellent trio of books…I especially loved the book on Lestat. Ann Rice, unlike most modern authors, has a beautiful style of prose. Her sentences are beautifully worded and descriptive. I hate that short, sweet and to the point style that is so popular nowadays. Ann Rice knows the joy of simply reading for the sake of reading. Sometimes it’s the journey and not the destination…And yes, Ann Rice, gets it! What better way to pass the time than spending it reading and analyzing an enchanting, beautifully, artistically crafted sentence while sipping on a nice drinkie-poo?
=I saw a beginning Russian book. As you can see, based on above, it’s probably going to be a long while before I can get to learning Russian. Since I have no room for a booketh to storeth, I shall passeth oneth thiseth timeth. Well, like Scarlett O’Hara says, “Tomorrow is another day.”
=Frugal Gourmet cookbook. I used to have a few of his books. He’s got the best recipe for broccolli and swiss cheese quiche ever! If you like garlic, then the Frugal Gourmet is your man!
=White Oleander. I heard about this book and was going to buy it and then time passed on and the idea of purchasing it simply got lost in the far reaches of my brain forever to be forgotten. Until today, of course.
=Some non-fiction book about Eleanore of Aquitane. Why? I don’t know. I suppose that time period is intriguing.
What else? Well, I’m a wee bit tired so I’ll write some more later.
