I showed this blog to my roommate; I've officially had a visitor here! Woo-hoo; one person! That's one more than before. Maybe I should get one of those free counters now...
I guess I should go ahead and tell the rest of my friends about it, but really, there's not that much here. It seems kinda lame.

Spring Break Reading
So, my very last spring break is coming to a close. (That's right, I'm finally graduating from college.) It was really boring. Aside from going to work, and visiting with friends as usual, I mostly slept and read.
I read some of The Girls in the Van by Beth J. Harpaz. It's about the press corps following Hillary Clinton around New York state during her Senate campaign. It's nonfiction & I'm reading it for a class, but it's good reading.
I also started The Monk Downstairs by Tim Farrington, which is fiction. I think it may turn out to be a good book, but I ended up putting it aside for the moment. For now at least, the main characters aren't very happy people. I needed something light and happy this week.
So, I checked out Boy Meets Girl, (totally fiction) by Meg Cabot, from the library. Meg Cabot writes some of the only romance I have truly enjoyed. About a year and a half ago I read & enjoyed her book The Boy Next Door. These two, along with a new one I have not yet read, called Every Boy's Got One, are a loosely-tied series. All three books are written mostly in e-mail messages and other written communication. Who knows; maybe one of the characters in the newest book has a blog!
Don't I suck?
So, I'm about 99% sure that NOBODY reads my blog. I haven't told anyone about it, and people are not likely to stumble upon it. But none the less, shouldn't I make a bigger effort to make entries? Okay, so my life isn't a thrill-a-minute, but none of my entires-to-date have been super-thrilling, but they haven't been that bad either. I can do this! It's just... like so many other things, I just have to bother to take the time and do it.

I had a really great time in St. Louis last week. I am so glad I decided to go. Representing Germany on Third Committee was awsome. My fellow German delegate on Third Committee was a very cool person & easy to work with. Everything went really well. My research could have been better, but inexperience probably would have kept me from finding some of the information I needed, even if I had spent more time on it. I'm definatly going to recommend model UN to other people!
