Ahhh Mid-Winter Break…

Today was my first official day of Mid-Winter Break. Ahhh.

The sucky thing about mid-winter break is that I have way too much time on my hands… so I need some book recommendations. Please please please take a few minutes of your time to recommend some good books! I will love you forever!

I like young adult books, mostly realistic ya books (well, realistic for the characters in the books, obviously not me :() and some dystopia books…. so yeah.

Until next time, Em 🙂

WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?!

I check my inbox to see if I have any e-mails from the library… AND I DO. Woot woot! Time to read some e-books, cuz I just finished Reached by Ally Condie (I recommend all of her books, omg so amazing) and I need some new reading material.

But then when I go to check out the e-books, IT SAYS IT’S NOT READY TO CHECK OUT. What is this?!

Well, Harry Potter #2 was ready to check out, so I guess that’s a bright side.

But still! I want to read my mermaid story (don’t judge, I like mermaids. It all stemmed from my love of the show H2O. I watched all 3 seasons in less than a month [over summer break] So, obviously I like mermaids.)

Anyways, I’m off to go read the magicallness that is HP. And you know, procrastinate on my homework. Heh heh.

Until next time, Em 🙂

P.S. ~ I did borrow this awesome sweatshirt from my friend (that I will soon be getting – If I ever get the e-mail that they’re ready to pick up)… so that’s good! I’ll wear in my next TAP video, so you all can see it. Yay!

now I have something to do for the rest of winter break

… besides finish my English project. ahem.

Because today, I helped my mom’s friend (who got hurt) package up books to ship off. She’s a book rep, and she receives about 600 pounds of books 3 times a year. And since she’s hurt (she slipped a disk working) she asked me to help her. Woohoo! I lifted 475 pounds of books today. I’d say that’s my workout for the whole week. My back is still sore. But hey, I plan to enjoy my last 3 days, 10 hours, and 58 minutes of break. Yes, I have a timer on my desktop.

I will be spending the rest of my winter break reading the 22 books (plus 5 for my brother, plus a box set of the Graceling series) that I got today. Well, not all of them. I’ve got 6 set aside that I’m hoping to finish soon.

The sad thing is, today was the most fun day I’ve had all winter break. Well, not so sad. Getting 27/30 books in one day (for free) is not sad. Not at all.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Like a boss.

What do you consider yourself a “pro” at?

I don’t know if I’m a pro at any of these things, but I do love doing them, so…

1. Baking! And eating… hehe

2. Reading!

3. Shopping!

So what future jobs could come out of these hobbies, you ask?

1. Having my own bakery! Let’s face it, what’s better than cooking all day? And with all that cooking comes taste testing 😉

2. Being a book rep! My mom’s friend is a book rep, which means she gives me Advance Reader Copy books (books which haven’t come out yet), and she gets to read books for a living. Pretty much.

3. Having my own clothes store – specifically a consignment store. My mom was telling me about her coworker that’s from England, who has never seen a consignment store before. She then proceeded to tell me that we should start a store together in England (her coworker and I, not my mom and I xD)… and then I thought, why not? It’d be super fun, and I would live in England. Plus, her coworker is really cute (and has an accent hehe)

Until next time, Em 🙂

The Weekly Post: 9/9/12

Song of the week: Sorry by Buckcherry… so if I had to say my favorite song? This’d be it. It makes me feel like crying every time I hear it. Also, here’s some other good songs! Anywhere But Here by SafetySuit and  The Story Left Untold by Every Avenue! I was looking at songs that I had bookmarked to listen to later, and these were sitting right there… I’m so happy I decided to listen to them 🙂

Book of the week: Let It Snow by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle… so I already featured this book in another post, but can I just say, I re-read the first book in this “collection” and asdfkl I want to read it over and over and over… ugh.

Word of the week: flamdoodle. noun. nonsense

Cool fact: Hugh Grant is exactly one day older than Colin Firth! Way to go, British actors!

Something interesting that happened: I watched Love Actually… yeah so this video? Pretty much my life.

Quote of the week: “A life isn’t measured in hours or minutes. It’s the quality, not the length.” –Elsewhere (go read it)

Until next time, Em 🙂

Strange-o dreams…

Tonight I had a very interesting dream. I was a spy, and we were trying to find something (I wasn’t sure what it was at the starting of the dream), and we were using a calculator whose back popped off to reveal a Geocache-like set of coordinates to find it. It turned out that we were looking for a house, and once I got in, my teammate wasn’t inside yet. There was a password, and she totally botched it up (she had a few screws loose). And then once we got inside, a mysterious voice inside my head (I’m not quite sure what it was) told us to go to page something-or-another and then I was reading a book, sort of, I was visualizing it, in my awake mind I guess? Anyways on the page of the book some guy was being tranquilized at a dinner meeting (kind of like a date, but with a villian and a non-villian). And then I woke up before I could find out anything. And it turns out I was reading a book and had only got to page 22 – well actually, the “book” told me to skip ahead to page 22, so I guess I didn’t get that far.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Story of my life…

“Janie wanted to ask Hezekiah about Tea Cake, but she was afraid he might misunderstand her and think she was interested.” (OH MY WORD, I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL! PRETTY MUCH SUMS UP ANNA AND I’S RELATIONSHIP CONCERNING SWIMMER!)

“‘Well, is he- he- is he got uh wife or something lak dat? Not dat it’s any uh mah business.’ She held her breath for the answer.” (UH YEAH THERE WAS DEFINITELY AN AWKWARD  SITUATION WHERE THIS HAPPENED TO ME LAST YEAR, MINUS THE WHOLE, YOU KNOW, WIFE PART)

-Their Eyes Were Watching God

Oh also, I was asking RJ about the guy she likes (Jadrian) , who is sadly graduating, and we had this highly stimulating conversation:

Em: “Is he popular?”
RJ: “He’s… captain of the chess team.”

Trust me, you had to be there.

Until next time, Em 🙂
