So far I’ve read:
East of Eden (which started the whole thing)
The Grapes of Wrath (good)
Of Mice and Men (good)
The Pearl (good)
The Red Pony (TERRIBLE)
I really really hope that Steinbeck wasn’t the kind of guy who wrote a few good books and the rest is all crap. Then again, I guess I shouldn’t get discouraged this early in the game.
Not necessarily with my handling of people and being high drama, but more with taking care of myself.
I don’t pamper myself enough. I want to use better products and lotions and such and actually use them on a regular basis. I want to smell nice and be soft and pretty. I want to do my hair every day instead of the little ponytail I fall back on morning after morning. I want to use face masks again and give myself pedicures and get professional massages and shave my legs on a regular basis.
So that is the plan.
I never ever thought I would say this, but thank god for speech classes.
