Julie & Julia: An Introvert’s Friday Night Reflection

I’m watching Julie & Julia (on a Friday night alone in my dorm…) and it just makes me so happy. Not the being alone on a Friday night, the movie. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s about Julia Child (played by Meryl Streep) and a blogger named Julie Powell (played by Amy Adams) who […]

Yay books!

Like I’d said, I stopped by the public library today. IT WAS ADORABLE. I got a library card (yay!) and the two sequels to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Their copies of Catching Fire were checked out, so I’m just going to borrow my friend’s copy. I’m really excited! Also, I mentioned an essay due at the end […]

Week Thirteen: Goals

NEW THEME! I might mess around with the colors (the background is really boring) but I love the colors and font. What do you think? This week, as I mentioned in my last post, I am going to the libraries. I’ll be picking up the following books: 1. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (Hunger Games 2) 2. The […]

Week Twelve: Results

Play the fanfare, please! I have successfully finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson! After months of staring at the cover, I have finally reached the end! And it was AMAZING. I am completely in love with this book. I immediately ran over to my campus library to watch the Swedish version of the […]

Week Eleven: Results

Seriously?! Another failure? I honestly don’t even know how this happened because I spent so much time reading. 😦 Oh wait…there was a five-day Harry Potter marathon on tv… CURSE MY IRRESISTIBLE TEMPTATIONS! Anyway, I’m only halfway through Dragon Tattoo and I didn’t even start another book. So much for my big plans. I need to be more disciplined. I’ve […]

The scholarship search continues…

I’m really bored! I’ve been staring at my computer screen for hours, writing 500 word pleas for money. The weather has been beautiful, and I just want to go back outside with Dragon Tattoo and read! (By the way, I am loving this book! I don’t know how I pushed it off for so long!) But alas, […]

Week Ten: Results

I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY Okay, so at least this week I wasn’t terribly late posting my results. Also, I have a legit excuse this time. And because you care so, so much, I will explain: I’m horribly sick. I have been horribly sick for the past two weeks or so because some bitch […]
