...sometimes I know things...

So yesterday I found out also that Def Tech's "My Way" was the best selling song in Japan of 2005. And sensei claims it's too fast for her to sing along with, and yet I can pretty much keep up. In other words, sensei is modest.

So I finally finished Prep last night around 2 am. Not because it was so good that I couldn't stand to stop, but because there was really not a good stopping place. And I wanted her to graduate already.

Basically, the main character annoyed me, but I'm not sure if it's because she is too much like me or not enough. Her inability to say things, to act, got on my nerves. I may not be the most confident person in the world either, but her lack of confidence that was never overcome was somewhat disturbing. Also, her relationship with Cross was rather creepy after a while. I guess maybe it's because I usually don't go for the blonde hair blue eyed athletic type, or because at some point the person you like actually becomes approachable, wheras for Lee he never did, even after four years. I'm not quite sure what it was, but something about her was a little bit off to me.

However, I completely understood how she felt in relation to friends. The book was about her lack of confidence, basically, but the message by the end was really that the way you really get close to someone is through friendship. The relationship with Cross was lacking because even though she loved him, they were not friends. I guess we all need people that we can talk to openly without worrying that we are bugging them.

Then again I'm not exactly the poster child for a good friend either! In fact, I am entirely emotionless, and don't like my friends (remember TweenTalk, everyone??)

Ummmm yeah, time to go clean my room some more.
