God I'm so slack! I know what my next chapter will be, but I still haven't written it! Soon, I promise!

So before I do my usual thank you bit.

I've been re-reading some of what I've written. I re-did the Rome chapter because that was really badly done. It hardly had anything in it and was very vague. And that's something I want to remember, so I re-did it.

Anyway, whilst reading the earlier stuff, I realised how truly horribly written it was. The badly written bio thing was kinda a joke coz I don't really write or anything, but god. it was horrible! How you guys managed to get through those first few chapters to make it to this point I don't know!

So here's my question to you: Do I re-write them?

See I'm unsure coz on one side, they're really. cold and impersonal. It's because, at the time, I planned to do this really factually or whatever, but as I started getting reviews I was more aware of the fact that I was telling my story to other people, and it became more. natural, I guess.

But then on the other hand, they shown how much my writing has grown and improved from what it was back then.

So I dunno, let me know what you think and maybe it'll help me make up my mind!

Oh, and I've figured out how I'm gonna end this thing. I have a few more chapters to go to get up to the present, and then I'm gonna keep going until Feb or so. I turn 20 in Feb, and I figure this could be like the first 20 years of my life or something. I dunno, it seemed like a nice even number. And then who knows, maybe I'll continue and do the next 20 years (scary thought!). So yeah, that's the plan people, just wanted to let you all know.

And now to thank people:

Rach: hahaha, I read reviews on stuff too. I think a lot of people do. don't they? And I'm glad you've read Enid Blyton. for a minute there I thought I was the only one! Was the pope drunk? Hehehe, nope... well I don't think so! Nah he was just old and sick... it was kinda like he'd had a stroke or something.

Freewings: woohoo! You caught up! Thank you for your constructive advice too! And yep, I'm still in England. more on that coming up too!

Misty Spotts: ha, yeah you're right. even if we did all gang up on my mum it wouldn't work! I dunno, I'm kind of over the whole re-marrying thing now. I have no idea what's happening with my dad, but he's not making the effort so I give up. And my mum has been good lately, so whatever, I guess I'm happy for her, although I still am annoyed at how she handled things in the past. Who knows, I may tell her one day. only that would probably turn into a fight, so maybe not. Yeah Paris was great! I'm glad I described it well enough for it to bring back memories of your trip there! Yep, Sacré Coeur is a big white church, on a big hill I guess, overlooking the city. Why didn't you go to the Eiffel Tower? Hehehe, that's the big touristy thing! And as to how long I'm here, and when I go home... well that's something that will be in future chapters! I can't ruin the story now, can I?

Pretend Jane: woohoo, a new reviewer! Who's faves list did u get it off? Misty's? Coz that's the only one I know it's on... if it's on others too, that's so cool! Lol. And I'm the first auto-bio you've read? That's pretty cool too! You should write your bio! I'm sure it would be interesting! And I know you write really well... I'm working my way through your story, but I have so much to catch up on! It's going really well though. Is it the only thing you've written? It's written so well that I doubt it is. You should post some other stuff too! Hahaha, see you've made me feel better by having TWO family members like other family members, not knowing they were related! It seems to be more common then I thought! Hehehe, still funny though!

Ok, that's everyone! Thank you all for reading, and I hope you continue to do so!
