I know it sounds like I’m making excuses for lack of entries but my internet was down for a little while because the modem we had was a little too old to work anymore so we had to get it replaced, which took long enough for me.

Anyway what I’ve been up to lately…

Another book I’m reading! The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. I’m not quite halfway through the book right yet but I’m really liking it.

And a book I’ve been writing lately is an novel inspired by the Twelfth Night by Shakespeare. And I don’t plan on considering on publishing this one but it’s fun to write anyway. But it’s also quite difficult to write considering I, being the person I am, automatically started writing this from Viola’s point of view in first person. This makes writing it extremely difficult due to all the sub-plots and dramatic irony and you know, scenes that happen with Viola not even there! So, I think I’ll have to go with alternating points of view.

Shakespeare was truly genius.

Anyway, volunteered at a library program yesterday and had to get up early for another one today. It was actually a lot of fun but I had to have a nap once I got home. I recognized this one girl from pathfinders. Not exactly pathfinders, but a flyup because she was only in brownies. Friendly person, (not saying a name) she told me at the flyup that I should be a brownie leader. Which, you know, kind of made my day.
And just something I thought I should say, if you have no idea what the heck I’m talking about with all this ‘pathfinders’ and ‘brownies’ talk, check out this website (the Girl Guides of Canada website) to figure it all out. Easier than me explaining everything. The age groups have changed a little over the years for girl guides and the sort. (I was reading some old guiding book from, like, the seventies recently and it shocked me how different it really was, and honestly, I felt a bit envious in a way that there were actually you know, patrols that would be filled up fast. They treated girl guides like it was the most popular thing around. When today, people see girl guides as those little kiddies who just hike and sell good cookies. Too much work for kid’s today.)

Yeah, so I made this new goal to watch the sunset as often as possible and it worked out for about 2 days last week and so now I’m trying to revieve this goal. But it is setting about … now.

So I got to go.
Bye! 🙂

Alex Violet. 🙂
