"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein



Yesterday, I finished Dear John. I saw the movie before reading the book because let's face it, when you read the book then see the movie, you will most likely hate the movie. Since this was the first time I saw the movie first, I was actually quite surprised to find out that I really like both of them. One thing I wish the book had include that was in the movie was more parts with John's dad. He was a larger character in the movie and the parts with him were so well done. In the book, he was also very much involved, but it was different from the movie. As for the ending, I think I prefer the ending of the book. It just left the characters in better places. Overall, both were excellent so you should read/watch Dear John!

Now on to pollen. I really dislike pollen. Between classes yesterday, I sat outside to read some and when I left to go to my next class, I put my glasses in my bookbag. When I took them out again, the lenses were covered with pollen. It's ridiculous! Walking to the bus yesterday, you could see the tire tracks in the pollen. The cars are all completely covered with it and everyone is constantly sneezing. Plus, all of the bees are out (especially around the apartment). Hopefully the rain today will wash most of it away. I'm just ready for summer so I don't have to worry about all of this pollen and plus I won't have to worry about school!

Just to show you a little of the pollen, here is the back of my car. You can't really see it well in the picture, but trust me, my black car looks yellow.

PS. I'm going to pick up my Holga pictures today! I'm so excited to see how they turned out!


  1. I've read the book Dear John but have yet to see the movie. I definitely need to check it out.
