I have always loved Jane Eyre, but more often than not, lately I have found myself longing for a Mr. Rochester. I want that romance, I want the desperation, the inability to live without. My favorite quotes are from that book.

"Because," He said, "I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you - especially when you are near to me, as now; it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous Channel, and two hundred miles or so of land, come broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapped; and then I've a nervous notion that I should take to bleeding inwardly."
- Jane Eyre, Chapter 23

"I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh: it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God's feet, equal - as we are!"
- Jane Eyre, Chapter 23

Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt? May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine. May you never appeal to Heaven in prayers so hopeless and so agonized as in that hour left my lips; for never may you, like me, dread to be the instrument of evil to what you wholly love.
- Jane (Ch. 27)

Although I love Elizabeth, I can tell that I'm not her. We're just fundamentally different, though I love her story and her life and her world. Jane and I share the passion and emotion that surges through our lives.

Gah. I can't help it. Where are all the Mr. Darcys and Mr. Rochesters of the world? This modern day Jane Eyre is right here, waiting!

This summer I'm babysitting Dalton every Tuesday and Friday from 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM and midnight release of Deathly Hallows. Dillon got his license earlier this month. Scariest experiece of my life...being in a truck with him. Especially when he and his cousin tried to pass each other on the highway!

Hmmm... My friend is getting her license. I haven't been in a car when she's driving and really, I'm rather nervous to do that. I've finally started riding again and my next lesson will be on Thursday. I'M SO EXCITED!! I haven't been on a horse is two years and now I finally get to ride again! YAY!

Are you going to get the new Harry Potter book? I pre-ordered mine, but I'm going to a release party to get Dillon book. I forgot that you rode! How was the lesson?

It was awesome! I'm riding a horse named Tank, and he's pretty sweet. Although, sometimes, he's a little impatient about going faster...

Yeah, I pre-ordered mine too. I'm still not finished with it yet. I'm trying to make it last, you know?
