Speak Up

Cried a lot today.  It was a very bad headache day plus my teeth are killing me after my last dentist appointment.  I think I need something fixed... it shouldn't hurt this long.

I got my acceptance letter into the Vet Tech program.  That's not really a surprise, I am pretty sure I was "accepted" as soon as I paid to apply.  But the letter saying so is needed for a couple of the scholarships I am trying for, so it was good to get.  I think I have applied for 30 scholarships so far.  I have been tearing up Fastweb, College Board, Cappex, Fresch, Petersons, Scholarship Page, FinAid, LDS Jobs,, and Wired Scholar.  Plus Google and others.

I just finished my first book of the year, Speak.  I have a goal to read at least 100 books (but that counts audio books) in 2011. It was hard to read.  There were parts I related to too much.  The character's high school reminded me of my junior high and that was a really really bad time of my life. Just like her, I had my best friends tell me, "No offense, we just don't want to be friends with you anymore."  However, unlike her, I was not raped.  Obviously, that would have made my life 4 bazillion times worse.  My friends who have had that happen to them (yes FRIENDS. Multiple. How awful is that?!) are the strongest women I know for SURVIVING that and they better dang well know that!  I love you.  God loves you.

I almost couldn't finish that book.  But it ended with Melinda being STRONG. It ended right.
