I started writing on the novella for the first time in a week. I had a scene to follow the first one of chapter seventeen but after I got half through it I couldn't decided what to write next and I'm stumped at the moment. The chapter focuses on Bernadette and her thoughts about her situation with Jean Michele. I've literally just stopped.

I practiced decimals and multiplication today. See I get how to multiply but I get tripped on multiplying two digits. Like I could remember some of it but I get confused easily with it.

The French is coming along. I'm practicing with memerise which is really helpful. It's interactive and it has a lot of repetition which helps me retain more information.

Yesterday night I started reading the introductory textbook on Sociology I bought. This one is much more informative than the Spark Notes 101 book and it has suggested reading and websites at the end of each chapter.

I'm still reading Still Brave. The article that I finished reading this afternoon talked about womanism and the differences between it and black feminism. I didn't realize how different yet alike they are. I mean I call myself a black feminist instead of a womanist but it's not because of the differences are what they stand for but how it sounds. I mean if I say I'm a feminist in normal everyday life someone is more likely to know what I mean (And get negative connotations I admit) than if I say I'm a womanist. It's just a lot attached to both identifiers and I need to look into them more.

I have been replaying Iggy's Change Your Life. And you know I was thinking after I made my attraction post that I should probably have added Iggy under the sexual category because I am highly sexually attracted to her. So that might be an addition.

Tomorrow is my birthday (The song 22 no longer applies :P). I haven't decided if I'm going to go out but my mom made dressing today and I was like whaaat? She was like I wanted you to have a good meal and hey I'm not complaining.

Until next time my dears or after 12 when I make my usual birthday post.

hey stranger I want you to catch me like a cold: [pokemon] charmander scarfiestarrysnafu on September 14th, 2013 02:29 am (UTC)
Memrise is awesome. It's probably the most useful online resource I've found yet for languages.

I'm glad to hear you're working on the math. You probably already know it or your book may cover it but I didn't know till a few years ago that you can multiply multiples of 10s just by multiplying the non-zero numerals and then adding the zeros, i.e 400 x 100 = 4 + 0000 (4,0000). That saved me a lot of time once I learned it!

It really is great.

Haha I figured that out! So helpful.

I've never heard of womanism or black feminism. I need to look into these terms ASAP.
