Irish_Bridged is trying to teach me how to write in cursive. I don’t know how successful she is going to be or if I am even going to learn enough to write a complete sentence, however at least she believes in my abilities enough to try. ^_^ Today I learned how to make a’s and b’s in cursive, I am so proud of myself. Although I still think that the cursive b looks like a bra and the cursive a looks like a space ship O.o well at least I haven’t lost my imagination.


I am also paling on making time to read the Kalevala, it’s a book of Finish mythology. Thankfully there is a translation of the Kalevala availed on line so I can read about Kullervo, Lemminkainen, and others with out having to spend a dime. I know I know I know, it would be much better if I was able to buy a copy of the book, but at the moment I am trying to save up some money for a laptop and my own apartment.

The Kalevala
by Elias Lönnrot
Translated by John Martin Crawford
[1888]
actually it would be more appropriate to credit Elias Lonnrot with girthing the stories in the Kalevala together, I don’t know very much about them and so far I have only been exposed to some of them, but lets face it these stories are very very old.

Anyway I was hoping to get some of my homework done tonight, so even though I would love to sit here and do some reading my homework isn’t going to do its self. So until so tomorrow or until something interesting happens to me, I am off.
