I visited Audrey Najera, my female-mirror, to get most of the books I’d need for the Normandy Scholar Program.
She handed me a Nordstrom bag full of paperback books.
Audrey is my female mirror–or rather I am her male-mirror–because I seem to do everything that she does.

I’m really getting excited about NSP, despite the fact that I didn’t get a head-start on the reading like I had hoped I would.
That’s ok, though, because at least in a few months I’ll know a lot about World War II.
And that’s helpful? I think?
