The Last Lecture

My open house was very nice.. It was great to see family and friends.. I love catching up and hearing about how people are doing.. It was great..

I am reading this book called the "Last Lecture" by Professor Carnegie Mellon. He is the professor that is giving his "last lecture" because he is dying of pancreatic cancer. .It has been all over the media. Anyways. .This book is great. .It is so gripping that I am not motivated to touch my homework at all, which is a bit unusual for me..
The book has been very moving for me and something that i found very interesting was this " You may not want to hear it, but your critics are often the ones tellyou you they still love you and care about you, and want to make you better". I just loved this quote and thought how true this really is.. So, next time someone is being critical, remember it's because they love you, but not because they are trying to hurt you!!

Hey friend! Just a reminder about coming to camp next week. Wanted to make sure you were planning on the right week (June 22-28). That would be horrible if there was a miscommunication. I'll email you a way to get ahold of me to let me when you will be coming. See ya soon, girl!
Can't wait.
