Decision, Decisions

Okay, I think I might just be the
worst decision maker in the entire world. You should see me in a restaurant. It
takes me forever to choose what I want to eat. And even after I choose
something, I usually change my mind as soon as I hear someone else at the table
order something that sounds better.

Which
leads me to my latest problem. Well, it’s not a problem, really. It’s actually
a very good thing. My mom is finally going to let me wear lip gloss to school!
Up until now, I had to use chapstick, which is definitely not the same
thing!I went to the makeup store
yesterday to buy my first lip gloss. But there were so many! I couldn’t decide
which to get, so instead I left with nothing. So I need your help. Do you guys
have a favorite color? Do you like the lip gloss with sparkles? Or maybe the
flavored kind? And if you do like the flavored kind, which flavor is your
favorite?

If
you think I have trouble choosing lip gloss, you should have seen me in the
library during English class today. Ms. Jaffe told us that for the next two
weeks, we get to choose our own books to read. All she asks is that we keep
reading journals where we keep track of what’s going on in the book, and how we
feel about it, as we read.

At
first that sounded like the best project I’d ever had. But then came the hard
part. What book should I read? I know that whatever I pick should be something
I’m really going to like, especially since I’m going to be writing about it
every day for two weeks. I also want to pick a book that kind of makes me sound
smart. You know what I mean. It’s the same reason I always used to buy the
fattest book I could find at the school book fair. It just seems impressive,
you know?

My
friends don’t seem to be having any problem choosing books. Felicia went right
for the romance section in our school library. Chloe chose a biography of a
famous actress (of course!). And Marc is reading some science-fiction novel
about evil robots that look like people and try to take over the earth.

I, however, left the library
empty-handed. So I was hoping you guys could give me some suggestions on what
to read. Do you have a favorite book? A favorite author? A favorite series? Let
me know. I can use all the help I can get when it comes to making decisions!
