library

Two things I learned at our session at the library:
1.) I didn't know how to use the card cat to look for books.
2.) I didn't know how to use the site where it gives you articles on the topic you want to research.

I didn't quite understand the part about how you can get books from other libraries. That would be something I would want to learn more about if I ever needed it.

Lisa Mermoud

Everyone has a friend that makes them laugh every second they're with them. Lisa Mermoud is that friend for me. Her goal in life is to make sure people are having a good time and are happy. There's not a real reason to the order I put the pictures in because Lisa is so spontaneous it wouldn't have made sense to try to find an order. Each picture shows somthing about Lisa and how goofy she is. If I would have just told you the silly things Lisa did, like how she wrecked Matt's scooter, you would have been like "she's stupid." But seeing Lisa dragging behind the scooter in one of my photos will make anyone laugh.
