Late Night Post.-

Hello world.

It’s 1:24 AM.

I am not sleeping and I am not sure what will happen when I do.

But let’s not linger on my personal life.

“The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian”

by Sherman Alexie

First of all, a big thank you to my American teacher for lending it to me.

It was a really funny read. No, it’s not trivial. I’s actually a good book. It won the National Book Award in the United States.

This is not a review, I should say, because my attempt at writing right now is obviously a failure, all the words I say in my head sound like incoherent Gibberish.

I liked Arnold/Junior’s story (yes, I’m talking about the book now), and what I liked the most is that he could see a good part in everything. Even in his best friend Rowdy who hated him, punched him in the face and gave him a concussion. And I loved that he had the courage to go on adventures. He had the courage to climb 50 feet trees and punch a huge dude in the face and study in a school for white kids (he’s an Indian, racism is pretty strong around reservations, from what I’ve read.) And he had the courage to go out with the most popular girl in school! This takes courage, you should see those kids, they are vicious!

And the most impressive of all, he had the courage not to give up when he was down, he swallowed his weakness and stood up and kept fighting until he finally won.

That’s a lesson we should all learn.

By the way, this is my Spring. She says hi. 🙂

That’s it. I should go before I say anything stupid. The level of confusion now exceeds its normal limits, which, in my case, are pretty wide, so, I should go to sleep. See what’s gonna happen tomorrow.

Just for the sake of it, and because I make people confused:

Mood: excited and nervous

Listening to: Ducu Bertzi- Suflet fara chei

Song that is actually playing in my mind: something of  French origins.

Okay, I’m out. Au revoir folks! See you demain!
