Last two days or something like that

Yesterday, we finished Things Fall Apart. It's a very good book in my opinion. I'd encourage all of you to read it. It's available from RFBD, Bookshare, and probably from NLS for those of my US friends who need specialized formats. For those outside the US, I'm sorry I can't make suggestions. But it's a book that makes you think.
Because I'm trying to make a version of Staggerford that's written from the perspective of a sixth grader in Miss McGee's class, I came into contact with the poem "Trees". I'd heard it before I'm sure, but hadn't really registered it. Here it is. I like it.
Joyce Kilmer
I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
I visited the college again yesterday. We got to see the dorm I may be staying in. It looks pretty nice! Julio had one of his really on days yesterday. I'm proud of him!
I went to bed by 11 which was nice considering I'd been up until 1 the night before.
Today, I presented information about Alice Paul in history. I was thirsty, but not as thirsty as I wouldn't have had help from a certain journalism coleague who helped me get something to drink.
That's the day in a nutshell!
