Well, I've been home for three days now, and I have to go off to work. Figure I'd post since I am free from the stress of school. In fact, later today or tomorrow, I'll even post the prolonged pictures of my room this year.

I guess I can blame it on school... I do blame it on school. This semester has been rough, because I am taking all upper level classes this semester and have zero time to blog. And let's not even being to talk about my classes for next semester.... remember my evil professor for advanced comp? Yeah, she will be my professor again next semester. Kill me.
I will try to post pictures later today of what I've been doing the past couple of months if I am free.
But hallelujah, I will be going home early next Friday for Thanksgiving break.

I've been reading and reading and actually reading for my college literature classes for one in my life, unlike past semesters when I just briefed them through.
That's all I can write for now since I have to prepare for my presentation for American lit tomorrow, and watch Mean Girls for film, and read Shakespeare for brit lit, oh and study for my world civ test and start writing a paper due Friday, oh and then last and least... study for a quiz and a test by the end of the week for criminal justice, oh wait, one more, and my internship!!!!!!!

I've been in school for about a week. In that time, I've been busy. Super busy. So busy that I'm typing this post on my phone as I sit on the toilet. (tmi, sorry.)
Let's take a brief overview of my classes...
American lit 1: torture but tolerable
World civ: tolerable but professor has too many expecting for a 1000 level class (yes I have to take a 1000 level class to fulfill the need of my minor)
Brit lit 1: tolerable... I actually enjoy it
Film: MY FAVORITE
Criminal justice: eh
Okay, that's just a quick little update. I will go into detail once the stress hits and I need to vent about it.
But let's take a second to appreciate my cute theme I have established on my insta feed over the last week or so since moving back to Arkansas.

You know you're old when you get excited about your plant growing. I bought this aloe plant at Lowe's and it was literally a babh, and now I'll need to repot her. Just some thoughts...
And how is it already August??

I will not lie, maybe it's because I can relate to Rachel in wanting someone who you can't have, but I rooted for her so badly. The first time I read this book, I was probably fifteen, and then the second time I was eighteen-- and of course I naively thought that the affair that Rachel carried on with Dex was so desirable and that betraying Darcy was no big deal. But after reading it again (being twenty now) I realize just how wrong Rachel was.
Hilary and Ethan (I love him) shed light to Rachel on what a terrible friend Darcy is to her, and Rachel slowly starts to realize this, but she uses that to justify her actions with Dexter. And the teenage me used to crave a guy like Dex, but now that I think about it, I would never want to carry on an affair with my best friend's future husband.
I honestly did not think I would enjoy this book from Darcy's point of view. ( I bought this second book the moment i finished the first when i was fifteen, and I could not get myself to read it until recently.) Needless to say, I loved it. Ethan was able to give insight to Darcy on how bad of a friend and person she was. After reading in her point of view, I did see how wrong it was of Rachel to betray her like she did. Regardless-- she was a bad friend, but Rachel did her wrong in the ultimate betrayal. I love how Darcy changes and becomes selfless rather than selfish. I also enjoyed seeing Ethan and her relationship go from bickering friends, to friends and then to loving each other--I was not expecting that to be honest, but it was a wonderful ending. However, it did bother me how Rachel was sorry for hurting her and not for what she did... but whatever.
Bottom line, if there was no second book, I would be on Team Rachel and Dex, but I am definitely more in love with Darcy and Ethan than I am the other pair.

I finished this book this morning... It took me about a week to read because I had to work all the while inbetween reading. Overall, it was an okay book. I love how Giffin always jumps right into the action of her storyline. I am not going to lie, I do like Richard more than I like Ben. I feel like we got to know him a lot better than we did Ben, so naturally, it made me like Richard for her. Maybe because Richard's lifestyle is more appeasing to me and I'm being biased towards the character of Claudia and Ben. I DO LOVE how Ethan is in this book! BTW... @EmilyGiffin, I'm still waiting for Something Blue as a movie so I can watch John Krasinski and Kate Hudson.
UGH. Okay I was honestly torn between Andy and Leo. Maybe because I love a story line like this. The one that got away. I don't know why this book doesn't get good reviews. I loved it!!! This book was by far one of my favorite books by her! SPOILER ALERT: She ends up with Andy.
I think the number one complaint I hear about Giffin's books is that the ending isn't what they wanted. They are not all happy and stuff. I for one, particularly like her endings in the ones I have read so far. It's realistic.
*** I read Something Borrowed Years ago, and I am currently going to read Something Blue on my vacation that I am currently on, so I will write their reviews on a post together sometime after I finish. ****
We will be going to Myrtle Beach and then to my cousins graduation party in NC. I am looking forward to going on this trip--it may not be a lavish vacation, but after the crazy school year I had, this is long overdue.

The series overall was good, but I am not sure if I really like it. Mostly because I think it parallels with her other trilogy---The Summer Series, but I guess Jenny Han just likes the same kind of stuff to happen to a person. The book ended just the way each book ended--LJ and PK get into a fight, and then make up.
I think this book just left me with so many unanswered questions... well just one to be honest. I want to know what ever happened to the letter LJ started to write to Josh again where she said, "Ps I still love you," hence... the title of the next book. He's pretty much disappeared from the series in the second book. It makes me sad. I
I cannot wait to write my own book one day... I already have started a few, but then I get busy because of school work and then forget all about it. I've started about 4 different ones, and then I have one more on my mind that I really like.
We will see... we will see..
- bullet journaling
- cut crease lids
- failing at life

Grades have been meh and I am meeting with my adviser tomorrow to make my schedule for next semester.
I know I have to take american lit, brit lit, film studies, and I'm not sure what to take for my electives.
I rearranged my room this week too. I switched up my bed. I still have not taken any pictures of my room. I just have not had time lately.
I started writing a book last year. And I got however far and lost my momentum. Then I started writing a new book because a great idea came into my head. Then I started reading all my old books and got into my feelings.
I tried not to write a love story. But love is what makes the world go around apparently. So I started a third one, and I got 22 pages done in nearly a day. But some of it needs to be cleaned up.
But then, I read another book and it sparked another light and I started to write again. It would be more like a spin-off to the third book.
Speaking of books...
I recently reread all of The Summer Series, I fell in love with Conrad, again.
And then I read TATBILB and the second book. I am so excited for the last series book that comes out next month.
This summer, I am determined to read as much as I can.
Okay, done with homework for the day... I should be reading my text book, but I am going to lay down in bed and read my pleasure books.

As soon as I got back to my dorm, I tore apart that chicken and threw the chicken, mayo, chopped up celery, and dried cranberries into a plastic Tupperware and mixed it all together!
I honestly cannot say how much to add on whichever ingredient... It honestly depends on who likes what. Personally, I do not like too much mayo, I like a lot of cranberries and celery.

As of today, I am officially an adult. I am no longer a teenager, I cannot believe that I am 30!! I remember being ten and thinking this day would never come.
