Oh, I actually highly admire The Counterlife, but then that's a book I read when I was about twenty, so I'm not sure whether I'd like it still if I reread it. I recently read Everyman, which is a much more touching, lyrical and less "heady" book (a "too intellectual" sort of "Alterswerk" by Roth I didn't like was The Human Stain), maybe you could try that one. Or, for descriptive exuberance, there's Sabbath's Theater, even though I'm certain that book's sex-obsessed, "dirty old man" protagonist is not everybody's cup of tea.
I miss creative writing so much. I've been busy lately. I mailed my letter of intent to enroll to Berea, so I'm definitely going there next year. I'm considering double majoring in English and Classical Languages, because I really like mythology and I want to learn latin and greek. But, with the way I change my mind, anything could happen.
I loved Stargirl when I read it and I've read it twice. I found out that he wrote a sequel last year, so I want to read it, too.
I miss London SOOO much. I watch a lot of British television and it's weird seeing the places that I've been. It's starting to feel like a dream, though, because I've forgotten some of the details. You are definitely coming to stay with me in London. Heck, you may have to come stay with me next year at Berea. Their crafts and stuff are so awesome and they have really neat convocations and guests. I'm so pumped! =)
I haven't been on Shelfari in about eight thousand years. I didn't see the message from a month ago until today. hahaha.
Call me sometime. I'm going to eat Ghetto Chinese with Martha tomorrow, but you'll be in Knoxville. D: Whenever you're free, we should chill. We'll go walking and gossip or something. haha. I love you, by the way.
I bet you've already read all of my top favorites: ONE FOOT IN EDEN by Ron Rash, SON OF THE CIRCUS by John Irving, CLAY"S QUILT by Silas House, THE MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS by Robert Heinlein, DUNE by Frank Herbert, MY OLD TRUE LOVE by Shelia Kay Adams. That's 7, but it's the best I can narrow it down. Some other recent favorites are Tony Earley's HERE WE ARE IN PARADISE and Karen McElmurray's THE MOTEL OF THE STARS. Those are probably the two best books I've read this year. Good luck finding something!
Kurtis and I basically live together now, but I know what you mean. The last thing I want is for me and Kurtis to end up like Tiffany and I did. :|
But yeah. Jesse told me not to talk to him anymore. I don't know. I miss him a lot, but - if that's what he wants - it's fine. I'll live.
She lives in a dorm or - trust me - I'd already be down there. Schylar lives there and we talked about moving in together, but ... there's just a lot of stuff about her that I'd have to explain. You'd understand why I don't want to live with her, though.
Jesse may be moving to Knoxville soon, but he doesn't want me in his life anymore. D: Whatever. I don't need his dramaaaa.
Kurtis and I have been talking about finding a place, after he finishes this semester at ETSU. He's transferring to Walter State, so I could go to Southeast or something gay like that. haha.
I totally know what you mean. I'm just a little ... protective. haha.
ANYWAY. I'm not doing much. This weekend, I'm hanging out with my friend, Rebekah. You'd like her, I think. She just moved back up to Knoxville, after she moved to Memphis, my sophomore year. I'm trying like crazy to get a job, but uhh ... there aren't really any to get. :\
Oh, and I like how I bitched forever that you should get myspace, so I don't have to use this website to talk to you, and here we are. ha.
If I had a kid, I'd absolutely die. :|
HOW CAN YOU THINK THE BELL JAR IS BORING?! OH MY GOD. ASLDKFMASODIFMASDF. I'm so furious. haha. It's my favorite book. :(
ANYWAY. I wish I were going to school in India. That would be sweet. I'm thinking something along the lines of ETSU, though.

Yeah, it's my number. haha. Ever-changing. Kind of like someone else I know, who's had 39847529347852345 numbers, since I met her. haha.
Tell them that, if they don't develop work ethic now, they're going to end up like me. And how Katie Owen ended up is apparently the talk of the town. That's not what they want at all.
