Does anyone really read this anyway?

Not sure who reads this, but i've secretly been posting to tumblr. i feel a little guilty, but not enough i guess.

i will probably maintain these side by side for a while and we'll see who emerges, but i'm thinking Tumblr will become my blog of choice.

Summer Reading List

Inspired by my Internet pal petiteartichoke's summer reading list i've compiled my own little list for the summer.

i'm not sure why i've never compiled my own summer list. i am a slow reader, but that sounds more like an excuse than a valid reason. Fortunately, i've already finished one and it's not even summer yet.

The List:

Catch-22 - Read
Divine Conspiracy
Ender's Game
The Sirens of Titan
Breaking Down Walls
When We Were Giants
Into Thin Air
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

...and who had worked so effectively to insulate him against the myriad social vicissitudes involved in his official duty to live on closest terms of familiarity with more than nine hundred unfamiliar officers and enlisted men who thought him an odd duck.

Are there any that dont sparkle?

i actually do juggle. i know it's hard to believe, but my cute little username actually does have some sort of meaning behind it. And the meaning is quite literal: i do love to juggle. That doesnt mean i'm good, but i have been known to juggle things that are on fire...

Recently, RIT hosted a juggling convention and i was thinking about picking up some gear. Mainly, i wanted juggling balls that didnt bounce everywhere when i dropped them (which happens a whole lot).

i went to a vendor and saw a great selection of colors for beanbag-type juggling balls. The issue: they all sparkled. Come on, i know you wonder what's different about me because i love to juggle, but sparkly juggling balls?

i asked the lady, "Do you have any juggling balls that dont sparkle?"

Her response?
That's such an odd request. I haven't heard that one before.

Children have a lesson adults should learn, to not be ashamed of failing, but to get up and try again. Most of us adults are so afraid, so cautious, so 'safe,' and therefore so shrinking and rigid and afraid that it is why so many humans fail. Most middle aged adults have resigned themselves to failure.
