Near as I can tell, the problem is that I went to school in Greeley, Colorado. Greeley was a smallish cow town out on the prairie and I think it's possible that they thought we all wouldn't amount to anything so why educate us. We were all going to just be farmers, clerks at Walmart or truck drivers.
My life long ambition was to get married. That's night. I majored in boys!
I'm decided that this can't go on any longer so I'm going to read all of the books that I should have read in high school if I had lived somewhere....like Denver.
Here is the list:
To Kill a Mockingbird by Lee Harper
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
The Giver by Lois Lowry
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
1984 by George Orwell
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Whuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
