Friday Wrap-up: Mieville, Motorcars and Maturity

Filed under: Books — liberrydwarf @ 3:21 pm

On time for once too!

1) One Good Thing: discovered China Miéville. Three words – Oh. My. Gosh. If you’re a modern fantasy fan and you’ve never read Miéville’s stuff, off to the library with you RIGHT NOW!

2) One Bad Thing: I’m about to get a new car and give my old one to my brother. Turns out it isn’t so simple as “here are the keys, have fun, don’t kill yourself.” Oh no, it’s a sea of paperwork and expense. And frustration. I don’t understand why it can’t be simple if it’s all in the family! Should have sold the stupid thing for scrap!

3) One Thing I’ve Learned: that no matter how horrible your high-school bullies are, if you can get through it all and make it through high school, come your ten-year reunion you’ll be the one surrounded by friends and they’ll be the ones nobody wants to talk to. It’s okay to feel good about this, I think… as long as you’re mature enough not to kick ’em when they’re down. This might be hard but it’s worth it, trust me!
