The Club: My Chapter 3 – Executing a Plan

“Dad,” I started with an embarrassed tone in my voice as I approached him in the living room. The TV was sputtering out current events of missing people and politics in the background, my dad intently watching.

“What’s up?” he asked, slightly turning his head.

“It’s a full moon tomorrow…” I started, always embarassed to remind him.

“Oh…yeah…” He paused for a bit. “What are you going to do this time?”

“I think I’m going to go far out again. Out into the farmland, you know, where no one is.”

“Oh, okay…” He replied with a sigh, always upset that I had to leave the house because of my “problem,” but he understood. I didn’t want to hurt anybody, escpecially not my family. The best thing for me to do was to leave and become isolated until the moon had passed.

"Anthem" by Ayn Rand

Anthem” by Ayn Rand

From November 25 to December 1, 2007, I wrote a total of 1,180 words.

From December 2, to December 8, 2007, I wrote a total of 943 words.

This week from December 9 to December 15, 2007, I wrote a total of 2,798 words.

Over the past three weeks, I have read the entire book, Anthem, written by Ayn Rand and 137 pages of Best Seat in the House written by Allen Rucker.

I am so sorry that I haven’t been able to come on, write, update the website, write the overview, or finish up the meeting slideshow, but I will get it all done some time…I have just been so consumed with homework, babysitting, band things, etc. I really hate how busy this school year is keeping me. I have no time to myself because I do homework from the moment I get home all the way until I go to bed, and even then, I usually don’t have it all done…As I said before, when I have the time, I will most likely cook up a rant.

Dude, I have been so busy, I didn’t even have the time to do a Check Up! Seriously, I didn’t mean to miss it, and I did remember it, I have just been so swarmed with life and stuff that I haven’t been able to do much of anything else.

This also means writing, so this week from November 18 to November 24, 2007 I only managed to write a total of 2,515 words. Most of it is on my third chapter of The Club which I am still working on.

I officially decided last night that this school year is the worst I have had for a few reasons. The bell just rang though, so I have to return to my busy life. Maybe I will have the time to type up a rant later on…

This week from November 11, to November 17, 2007, I wrote 1,352 words on Magic Pens and 3,020 words off to make a total of 4,372 words.

I read the last 65 pages of The Grapes of Wrath written by John Steinbeck, but then re-read 206 pages again making a total of 271 pages.

I’m sorry that I didn’t do more than that, but I was really busy and was once again bombarded with a lot of homework.

The Club: My Chapter 2 – Difficult Desicion

Should I go? The question drifted within my mind, invading all of my other thoughts. I couldn’t stop thinking about it each moment of my day, and it had been keeping me awake at night. I yawned and stretched out my arms, leaning my back over the worn cushioning of the backrest of my quaint computer chair. I had already been tired, yet homework insisted that it take more from me.
