It's been a helluva quarter so far. I'm exhausted and I still have the rest of the year ahead of me. On the bright side much anything else I do at Evergreen after this will feel like a cakewalk. Too tired and too much homework to do to write in detail right now.
My grandpa passed away the night before my class started, that was fun. We went to Ohio for a weekend a couple weeks ago for his memorial service, it was great to see so many relatives at once and my parents. I miss Chicago and people I knew from living there. My trip was short enough we just flew to Ohio with layovers in other cities. Don't think I have the funds (or energy) to go back for Christmas break. Meh.

Summer Reading

So, summer is here and I'm not taking summer school classes so I'm finding I have a lot more free time on my hands and wanting to have something to read while the kids play at the park and whatnot. Last summer I listened to on audio book and read the better part of the Harry Potter series. Now I'm looking for more good stuff to read this summer. I recently finished a Anais Nin Journal, that was interesting...I want to finish reading Persepolis soon since I want to read it before I watch the movie version, even though it's really short I find graphic novels hard to get through for whatever reason...I guess It's the combination of text and pictures that I find hard to follow, it's like I'm trying to read yet constantly distracted by bold graphics I end up having to read the text several times to get whats going on, I never grew up reading comics so I dunno, I find them distracting to read to my already scattered brain. It was the same thing when I tried to get through the sandman series.
I'm thinking of starting The Time Traveler's Wife soon, I picked it up at a book sale at my work 'cause it looked good. Anyone here read this, any good?
Any more suggestions? I'm probably gonna read Half Blood Prince again before the movie version comes out. Excited for that, but it's not coming out till November.

Um... you're a guy, right? If not, you're the most boyish girl in the world.

And for you, that's probably the ultimate compliment.

happy news article in the midst of chaos
