I am half way though Beasts of No Nation by Uzodinma Iweala! Oh wow. I was going to ditch it several times...but it is pointless since I want to get done with book 2 and I am half way through it :) It is just too real. But it shows how jaded you could become from witnessing death, gore and all that involves a guerrilla type civil war.
Personal update: I am still shaking. I ate a scone and ordered a decaf sweet bean (sweet decaf mocha) but have not been able to try to drink it. My body wants water! :) I am at the Beanery, a coffee shop in Corvallis, Oregon. I love it here, jabber all about....but at constant drone and I am still steady and indistractable (is that a word?? I always make up strange words!)!
Read on I must!!!!!
I have now earned $46.50 for clean water worldwide!!!
Where will the dinero ($) go? It will go to an organization I have become quite passionate about. I will be giving it to Living Water International an amazing organization funding the building of wells all over the world in developing nations. (there is still time to sponsor me!!!)
