I’ve Got a Smile on My Face

Despite my state shutting down again, my school going online after Thanksgiving, and all the other rather unfortunate things happening in 2020, I still have a smile on my face. I’m not entirely sure why, but I’m happy!

Well, it’s probably because I have such great friends, and I’ve started reading again. Can you believe that I hadn’t read in months until yesterday? I started a book yesterday, and despite how busy I am, I’m already halfway through it. I hope to finish it tonight and start on the next one.

Work is going well. I’ve gotten a lot better at making sandwiches and cleaning. It’s getting really slow, so my manager has started scheduling us alone for small amounts of time. It’s actually a party. Last night I started dancing like no one was watching . . . because no one was watching. It’s been fun.

My Creative Writing class is finally getting interesting. Honestly, I’ve hated it this entire year because so far all we’ve been writing is poetry, but our last two assignments have actually been stories, and I’ve written things I’m really proud of. You can bet they’ll be books one day, mark my words. For our next assignment, it’ll be back to poetry, but it was fun while it lasted.

I don’t know if you know, but I hate poetry. With a passion. I don’t enjoy reading it, and I am terrible at writing it. Enough said.

There’s not much progress on the book front, but that’s okay. I trust my mom is working on it as fast as she can. After all, she has her own books to worry about.

I’m excited for the future. Any day can be a great day if we let it!

Your friend,

Sally
