Life can bring you all kinds of things.... Can't it....
Sometimes the most unlikely , the most unexpected things happen and they effect you in such a way that it is hard to get over it. People are always doing things that are not welcome and you can't help thinking Why???? Why did you do that, Why did you say that or just plain why... Lately things like that have been happening to me. 1. One of my closest friends started to become nasty and mean.. The only thing I can think of to describe this is jealousy. You see there has been some other people hanging out with us and he acts very coldly towards them. For the reason that I get along very well with them and have not been spending as much time with him.. One of the down sides to having lots of friends is that you have to share yourself with a lot of people. Anyway Number 2. When one of your closest friends has done something horrible to you like lie about something very important your not likely to be friends with them anymore. Well what are you suppose to do when that person says sorry. Are you suppose to forgive them???? And act like everything is alright??? I have no idea... Because couldn't they just do it again and you would get hurt all over again. Don't ask me... Anyway other than complaining about everything shouldn't we spend our time thinking about all of the beautiful things in life... Like as the sun sets over the horizon or as a butterfly floats through the wintery air with graceful wings. We should spend our hours here on earth thinking and talking about all of the things we cherish in life and not all of the other stuff. So next time you walk pass some roses stop to smell them.

Well aren't people interesting... At school I am one of those girls who hangs around with guys. In the group I hang out with, there is only one other girl and lots of boys. That is the way I like it because I get along with boys better than girls most of the time. Anyway other girls say that I flirt with boys. Now a little bit of flirting is alright but when I get one of my best friends( a girl) telling me that the only reason that guys hang out with me is because I insanely flirt with them... that hurts. I treat guys the same way as girls and sometimes think they find that strange. Anyway my mum was the same as me when she was my age so I will just call it genetic. Guys seem to be less complicated and they don't talk about you behind your back. As far as I know anyway. For anyone else out there like me I have learnt that you just have to do what is right for you and don't let any girl or guy every make you feel sad.

Anne of Green Gables

I think, my all time favourite series of books would have to be Anne of Green Gables. I just love how every little detail is explained and Anne has love for anything and everything, which makes everyone around her feel loved and beautiful. Anyway i am up to the 5th book which is called Anne's house of dreams. As i was reading it on the weekend i came to a part where she talked about the sea and the woods and it was so poetic and beautiful that i thought i would share it...

The woods are never solitary, they are filled with whispering, beckoning and friendly life. But the sea is a mighty soul, forever moaning for some great, unshareable sorrow, which shuts it up into itself for all eternity. We can never pierce its infinite
mystery, we may only wander, awed and spell bound, on the outer fringe of it. The woods call to us with a hundred voices, but the sea has only one, a mighty voice that drowns our souls in its majestic music. The woods are human, but the sea is of the company of the archangels.

I thought that was so... as Anne would say romantic that i just had to put it into my blog. I love to think that someone could have such a simple but beautiful out look on life. Anne is such an inspiration to me that I wish that I could be more like her. So I encourage everyone to read Anne of Green Gables so you can be touched by the beautiful words of Anne.

Being a teacher

Today at school I was talking with my friends and I told them that I wanted to be a Prep teacher. The response I got was unbelievable... They said to me that I would have to be crazy to want to teach little terrors like that. For me I think that every child is a little treasure and teaching them I would help them to grow up to be better people. My friends had other opinions... They asked me how I would cope if one of them had a bad family situation or anger problems. I said that I would try and help them in every way possible and they just looked at me like I was mad or something.

I have always been like that, it is just a subject I feel very strongly about. My friends should know I am like that by now because last year there was this boy in my grade that everyone picked on. So of course I took him under my wing. His family had been spilt up when he was a little kid and after that he was put with a foster family. I became friends with him even though my friends disagreed because there was just something inside telling me that I should. Anyway I think that you should always follow your heart where ever it may lead you.

OH, give to me a chosen friend;
With whom I may compare
And mingle all my inmost thoughts,
And every pleasure share.

Sometimes, I'd steal away alone
To feast on Learning's page;
Then, Time may fly, I heed him not,
But wish each hour an age.

Yet, give me one true, faithful friend,
Who cares not for my gold,
But loves me with confiding heart,
And is nor bought, nor sold.

I then can go where duty calls;
Can minister to those
On whom Affliction's heavy hand
Hath dealt severest blows.

Or, I can smile and sing with joy,
Where faces all are bright,
And Pleasure sits in regal power,
Dispensing sweet delight.

Then is long life, with one true friend,
A something which I crave;
And thus on earth I'd journey on
With joy, unto the grave.
Today when I was on the net I found this poem from an 1850's Goodey's Lady's book... It really reminded me of how you can have so many different friends, but no-one as special as how they described friends in the poem. You would be a very lucky person if you had someone that you could share all of your closest dreams and thoughts with. Friends are said to be the closest people to you after your family and I think this is absolutely right. Without friends who would tell you if you had a bad hair day or something in your teeth and to have a shoulder to cry on or to share a good joke with... So next time you see your friends give them a hug and tell them what they mean to you.

The Beginning

Well this is a bit surreal for me. I have always wanted to have a blog. I, as the name of this blog describes, am a bookworm.. I just love to read. It is quite funny really because,2 years ago i hated to read, no-one could get me to read a book especially if it was a thick one. Anyway that Christmas, i got a book, it was called Tomorrow when the war began. To be polite I started to read it and found it was really good. From then on i have always read. At school i will sit there and read at lunch and my friends think i am very strange. So for all the readers out there, i say KEEP READING. It will inspire you to follow your dreams where ever they may lead.
