Book Reports

Well I turned in my book report today for English.  I did not exactly enjoy the book.  It was Emma by Jane Austen.

If you have not read this book, then I will give you a preview of what happens.
Emma is lonely, so she gets a new friend Harriet.  Emma tries to set Harriet up multiple times, only to have these set-ups fail.  Then Emma finds out that Harriet likes Mr. Knightley, which will not do at all because Emma figures out that she is in love with him.

The people in those times had nothing better to do than to worry about others getting sick and interfering with the lives of others.

I enjoy Jane Austen's books.  But not this one.  I read this book basically because someone told me that it was boring.  I wanted to give the book a chance.  I should have thought twice.  But now I can say that I have read Emma.

Who is Yolanda?

As promised before, here is the story behind my blog name.

A couple years ago my family and our friends (the Peeks)  ate at Los Amigos a lot.  I would almost always order the Yolanda entrĂ©e (2 chicken enchiladas and rice, i think).  At this time everyone started to tell me that I talked to myself too much.  My family and the Peeks decided to name the voice in my head Yolanda.
This has always stuck with me to this day.  Now many other voices have joined Yolanda in my head--Georgina, Penelope, and others (they do not want to be named at this time :D ).
Last year I realized that the different voices have different handwriting.  I noticed that I wrote differently on my history test essays.  My teacher actually began to think that I did have a split personality.

**I am in no way making light of the fact that some people actually live with the real diagnosis of split personality or voices in their head.**

Hello my new friends (or maybe just acquaintances)

Hello. My name is Nicole. I just started this blog, as you can see (or read). :)
Well my friends have always told me that i am very "special" (and of course they used that tone of voice that one uses when explaining something to a little child, you know). and they also tell me that i am random, funny, entertaining, and the list can go on for a while.
But i started this blog.
I warn you it will be random and weird. So you as the reader are warned.

P.S. I will explain my blog title, or whatever it is, next time. It's a good one.
