Last night was not what I expected. I told you that I was going to finish A Room of One’s Own and reach the halfway point in The Girl Who Played With Fire. That was totally my plan. I made tea and curled up on my bed with my books. And then I had this huge emotional meltdown because I missed my girlfriend. I spent the night crying and then this morning everything just exploded. I won’t bore you with details, but we got into a huge fight. I don’t think we’ve ever had a fight this big before. There was a lot of cursing and crying…hours of crying, which resulted in insane headaches.
Anyway, we’re better now (still healing, but at least we’re not fighting anymore) but, needless to say, I didn’t get a lot of reading in.
That being said, I am still three books behind schedule, according to Goodreads. Speaking of which, check out the footer of my blog (aka scroll alllllllll the way down) and you’ll see my “currently reading” bookshelf from Goodreads!
This week, my goals are as follows:
1. Finish The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
2. Read A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
3. Read Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I’m really hoping I can do this. Academically speaking, I’m pretty busy this week. I have a 7-8 page paper due for my English class, a Sociology exam, a source analysis for History, a presentation, and a campaign to work on. Phew! Wish me luck!
It’s April, and officially National Poetry Month! Here’s a poem by one of my favorite writers, Sylvia Plath! I’d really encourage you to find out more about the poets I post. Plath also wrote one of my favorite books, The Bell Jar. I hope that by sharing poetry on my blog, more people will appreciate this form of writing.
