Who invented these things anyways?

All right, so my siblings are at a day camp in a town 45 minutes away. Guess what that means? My mom has to drive them there and back. Guess what else that means? My mom doesn't want to drive back and forth twice a day for a week. So guess where we end up? At the library! And guess who gets to tag along? That's right. Me.

Granted, libraries aren't that bad. When they're in your own town, that is. But a random library in a town that you don't live in isn't much fun. For one thing, I don't have a library card. So that means no checking anything out. For another thing, the library's a third of the size of my town's library. I've been stuck at a table all week long doing my summer assignments and attempting to use Facebook through the slow internet connection. Not on my list of exciting things to do this summer. So why don't I stay home? Well, this is the place where the internet is. My mom turns off the airport when she's not home. If I want to use the internet, I gotta go here. The moral of the story? Libraries in different towns aren't a great place to hang out during the summer.

Who invented the "No-Talking" rule in the library anyways? Libraries have been around for forever. But I'm pretty sure they weren't all quiet. They should have a loud section of the library for people like me who have trouble being quiet for hours on end. One half of the library would be for the people who want to have quiet time. And the other half would be for people like me. They don't even need to keep the books in there. That saves the quiet people from complaining about having to enter the loud side. Us loud people could bring the books in there ourselves. I think that would be a wonderful compromise. I'm going to write a letter to the governor. (Actually, a place like that already exists. It's called the children's area. But I can't go there anymore. "I'm a big kid now!")

I like having my own laptop. I don't have to be told to get off by that guy from the front desk who tells people that there's a waiting list for the computer. I'm not a huge fan of this guy. The other librarians aren't bad. But this guy isn't my favorite. Although he did help an elderly lady around the library. She was so cute! I love old people. Maybe I should apply for a job at a retirement home.

All right. I've said enough for now. Toodles!
