It's been a long time!

I haven't written on the blog for a long time. I've been really busy with school and work and everything else. I'm finally eighteen, and I love it. It's amazing. I just wish we were having a major election this year instead of next. I'm so ready to vote. I got my voter's card two days after I turned eighteen. Can you say I'm ready or what?

I found a new job about a month ago. I'm working at a daycare in my town. I really like it and I get paid really well. I get to work everyday, and it's a Christian daycare, so that makes it even better.

I have finally been assigned the long awaited and dreaded Senior Research Paper. Yuck! Anyway, I'm busy working on that too. I'm doing it over the book Persuasion by Jane Austen. I really liked the book. Jane Austen is one of my most favorite authors.

A question for everyone: Has anyone heard anything about the author Philip Pullman and his book The Golden Compass. He is an athiest, but he doesn't try to promote atheism in this book. I recently started it and it's really good. It's kind of like Narnia. My dad got an email about the movie that's coming out, and about flipped when he found out I was reading the book. I'm still deciding if I'm going to finish or not. I was talking to my counselor about it today. She's a Christian and she's read all three books in the series. She says that there is no way a promotion of atheism in the books. My dad doesn't want me to see the movie because it would support atheism. I'm reading it for the story not the religion aspect of it. We pay $6.50 for an evening seeing of a movie in my town. I asked my counselor if I tithed an extra $6.50 if that would make up for my seeing the movie. She laughed.

Anyway, I can't wait for college. I'm actually going up to visit what I hope is where I'll be going to college next weekend. I can't wait. We had our Senior night at last week's football game. Tonight is the last scheduled game of the season, but we made playoffs, so we're hoping to make it to state. We made it last year, but we ended up getting beat. You never know though.

I'm still writing stories whenever I get the time. I can't wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas Breaks. I will have my laptop out the whole time. Anyway, it was good to catch up.
