Earlier this week, I got to vote for the first time in the State Election! I enjoyed reading about the issues and giving an informative vote for the state constitutional amendments up for election. There were also some bonds up for passing in our county. I truly believe in few taxes and states rights. So I voted against all tax increases and all other unnecessary money allotments. Sadly, the voter turnout was only 10%. I hope you took advantage of your right as a American citizen and voted on Tuesday!
This weekend Dad and Chris went to
The Pursuit: Every Mans Call to Biblical Masculinity in Gilbert, Arizona. They will be returning this evening. I wish they'd taken a camera! Oh well, we'll just have to hear a verbal recounting of the conference.
I've been reading these two books as I get ready to write my last major paper for English class. I'm writing a position research paper on U.S. Relations with the U.N., I'm taking the position of U.S. pullout of the U.N. I really like learning about this kind of stuff, but as I'm getting ready to write my draft...I'm finding that it's a tad bit more difficult than I thought. I know I can do it, but it'll definitely be an learning experience for me!
I found of this week that my English teacher is nominating me for the Honors Program English, Rhetoric and Composition II course next semester. That was pretty cool, so now I have to wait until I hear back from the honors program to find out whether or not I've been accepted!
I hope you're enjoy your weekend, so far! I'm afraid mines will be full of the aforementioned research paper. I'm really looking forward to going to church tomorrow!
Love, Adrienne Renea
