Weekly Update!  
Despite being down with strep throat, I had a pretty good week!

I went in for a second interview with Cracker Barrel. I told them that I was still very interested in the hostess position and they said they would call me in a couple of days. *fingers crossed* I think I would have so much fun as a hostess. XD hehe

- I published two articles on Associated Content.com if anybody would like to read them.

Here is my movie review of "Cracks": http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2970466/cracks_a_film_review.html?cat=38

And here is my list of top three books I would like to see turned into films with my reasons as to who should be cast and who should direct. (The list includes: "Atlas Shrugged," "Screwball: A Biography of Carole Lombard and "The Birds" (but it wouldn't be a remake. It would take on more of the original story than Hitchock's film did.):

- Another article was also accepted by Break Studios! :D My goal is double my payment of $16 by the end of this month. :D I'm surprised they accepted this article outright because I didn't think I had answered the topic directly, but I guess I did. lol

- And I went to Michaels on Thursday for a faux-leather necklace strap. Fortunately they had one left (Michaels is the hardest craft store to be in - they never have anything I need. lol) While I was looking over the beads for my art nouveau necklace I'm constructing, a girl about my age was asking a Michaels employee about making necklaces and how she was a beginner. Surprisingly, though not really surprising, the Michaels employee had no idea how to help her. She saw me and asked what she should do and I helped her out by showing the simple pamphlets they sell which have 15 projects in them. The pamphlets include the list of tools and supplies you need to make the jewelry and they're great for beginners. I think I helped her out a lot. (PS - I think I could work at Michaels if they were hiring. :P) I get such delight from helping people out. XD lol

Also! By the end of this month, I'll be enrolled in Valencia's Fall term! :D

supposedly, Atlas Shrugged is being turned into mini-series & Charlize Theron is Dagny.
but the status of this project changes like every month.

Ugh, Charlize Theron? Really? I can't see her as Dagny at all. But a mini-series would definitely be more appropriate for the book than a film.

Fingers crossed for the hostess position, though it sounds like you should really work for Michaels ;-)

I just read the article about the books into films (niice) and I was interested in your opinion: should one see the movie first or read the book first?

Yeah, if the hostess position doesn't work out, I'm going to apply for Michaels next. hehe

Thank you for reading my articles! :D I would see the movie. Honestly, the book isn't even worth wasting your time on. I'd definitely see the movie first. :)

I hope you are feeling better. Good luck on your writing career (it's awesome that you've sold some articles) and the hostess position at Cracker Barrel:)

I'm off to read your articles!
