memoir 1

I am reading a book call A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel. This is a memoir about a little girl who grows up in a town in Indiana called Mooreland. The book starts off with a prologue telling about her oddities as a baby she did talk until she was two. The prologue also tells about her town and the fact that is just a po-dunk farm community is rural Indiana.
The first chapter is called "Baby Book" (thats how it is in the book). The chapter is what her mom wrote about her when she was a only a few weeks old. She kept a journal of Zippy's staph ear infection which apparently could have killed her if the doctor did randomly grab the right medication.
The second Chapter is called "hair" it goes into depth about one of her other kink. This was her lack of hair until she was about three. She would get wigs and ride her trike down the streets and yell that is was her real hair.

My goal for my sophomore year is to achieve better grades like B's and hopfully A's!! This is my main goal for 10th grade. I do want to become friends with kids in other grades too so that I am not confinded to a small group of people.


I am anxious to meet new people and try new things. I think that a new schedule with different classes and time frame will be a change. Also I dont have many friends in my new classes so I probably will have to make new friends. I am anxious but excited.
