I'm in Champaign, Illinois instead of my beloved, noisy, crowded and cold Chicago. I decided to update, and as I was just typing this, my little (15-year-old) brother looked over my shoulder and said "Reading Rambo? Rambo doesn't read. Or maybe he does. We never really knew."
So true, little brother.
In preparation for the readathon, I have endeavored to accomplish the things I assumed would slow me down tomorrow. Therefore, today I have:
1. Ordered pizza.
2. Watched many, many episodes of Doctor Who.
3. Had the How's Your Future Shaping Up discussion with my dad.
I've been trying to read a bit, because I know I won't be able to READ ALL THE THINGS tomorrow, no matter how much I might want to.
|I knew someone would've made this|
I plan on going around and shouting encouraging things at those of you participating. And I feel like yelling at people like Red with "WHY ARE YOU SO LAME?" (love youuu) even if you all have perfectly good reasons for why you're not participating, such as 'I needed to focus on my sittin' around time.'
So! Encouraging things! WE CAN DO THIS. Read mightily. Go forth into the world and sit and stare at paper. Or at a cleverly-designed device that has a screen that looks like paper. Eat snacks. TAKE BREAKS AND REST THINE EYES.
May God have mercy on us all.
