Dancing!

I went country dancing yesterday! We're doing it at my brother's wedding and I was practicing with a big group of my friends.
It brought back memories of when I was twelve and had to dance with Julian Barberini or one of the other girls because there weren't enough boys around. 
For several years I went to stay over night at "Upper Canada Village" (http://www.uppercanadavillage.com/) in October. You get dressed up and go to a one room school house, do cooking or sewing and milk cows. It was the highlight of my year.
I remember all the girls sitting on one side of the room and the guys on the other with the lady standing in the middle of the barn floor and saying "Alright, now, boys, pick your partners." All the girls were nervous and the guys gave each other tortured looks. In those days boys and girls next to never, if hardly ever, talked or associated with each other.
A good bunch of those kids I grew up with have moved away, I haven't seen some of them in years and probably wouldn't recognize most.
Every now and then I'll come across them on Facebook or somewhere and they'll remember me and I won't remember them or vice-versa.

I keep waking up between 5:30 and 6 AM. It's rather annoying when I've gone to bed late or have nothing to do.

Yesterday I started reading "Brisingr" By Christopher Paolini. I started reading it a year or so ago but didn't really go past the first chapters. I loved "Eragon" though and I had a sudden urge to read "Brisingr" and it's not that bad. I guess I just find that sometimes Eragon is a bit of a "Gary Stu" (If you don't know what that is then check here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Stu) I love the way the books are written but the characters are predictable and I don't really like their morals.
But, on the whole, I really like the way it is written.

 

You know, I’m really surprised that I’m alive at the moment, considering all the havoc in my life right now. But I’m actually pretty good. I’m trying to appreciate people more because I have a tendency to let relationships drag. I have some really amazing and wonderful friends and investing in that is worth a lot.

 

Anyway! I hope you are all fine and dandy too and enjoying the beginning of your summer!

I've never been to Upper Canada Village. Should go sometime, hmm.

I also haven't read Brisngr yet. I think I probably need to re-read the first two books first (and ugh, I found Eldest really long and... draggy - not to be confused with dragony :P), but I lent my copies to someone a couple years ago and never got them back. :/
