We who have Fallen
OMG so far behind gonk two whole books. I started a new job recently and I haven't adjusted to the pace yet. Not finding any free time for reading


My job isn't new, but I work at a home improvement store, and our business always picks up in late spring through the summer, so I've been working six days a week, and have had almost no time to read. It's depressing. So, I definitely feel for you. Hopefully you can find some free time soon. sad

Don't feel bad! I have like, what, six books going on right now and I can't finish them!

Sure, you would think ''Um because you're not focusing on a book'' but I have my hands full as it is when I carry stuff around, so I have a different book for different places that I frequently visit. Two of them I'm reading to further insight on childhood education. And I constantly get my reading interrupted, so it's difficult.

So, I understand you there. cool

Oh, okay. Does the program only allow a few people in? Where I live, the community college I've been going to on and off has a lot of really good programs, but very few people actually make it in.
