Take that

This is me [figuratively] punching my confusion in the face.

You don't think I have it in me, huh? Maybe you should talk to my home teacher.

I'm just not exactly going to let my worries and fears control my life! Hiiiiiiiiiiya!

(Hopefully when you read that, it sounded like a ninja noise.)

For the record

Just for the record, there are three books I could read over and over again.

1. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

"It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting...there is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure."

2. The Boy Who Dared by Susan Campbell Bartoletti

"My Father in Heaven knows that I have done nothing wrong. I know that God lives and He will be the proper judge of this matter. Until our happy union in a better world, I remain your friend and brother in the gospel."

Watch out. This book, based on the true story of a Hitler Youth, WILL make you cry.

3. Big Russ and Me by Tim Russert.

"The best exercise for the human heart is reaching down to lift someone else up."

SO good!
