23-These Are The Times

June 14, 2012

School is over! Well, except for those of us who are taking summer classes. I'm only taking two, though, so it's not that bad. Remember that time I took 18 credits? Yeah, never again.
Two weekends ago, Jackie, Zoey, and I all got our hair cut. The pictures above are of Zoey. I am not a fan. Everyone else loves it, but I want her old hair back.:/
We went to the beach last week. It was awesome and I hope we get to go a lot this summer! I forgot my camera at home, but I'm kind of glad. Sometimes trying to take pictures distracts me from the whole experience.
Ok, I'm off to class!

21-Books I Read In April

June 1, 2012

  1. Going in Circles-Pamela Ribon
  2. Hocus Pocus-Kurt Vonnegut
  3. The Six Rules of Maybe-Deb Caletti
  4. Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me?-Louise Rennison
Well, this is late. I loved all of these books, but #1 is the one that most resonated with me. I love that it includes roller derby, but it is about much more than that. This book is about a woman who, although recently married, is already going through a separation. It's pretty clear from the beginning that her marriage is over and she knows it, but is not ready to accept it. What I most enjoyed is seeing the protagonist go from this scared, depressed little thing to a woman who is sure of her place in the world and who knows that she will be ok on her own. I also liked the friendships that help sustain her through this time. 
I also have to mention #4. I began reading the Georgia Nicholson series when I was 19. I borrowed them from the library and usually read through each book within a day. They are so fun and funny and I love Georgia and her little sister, Libby. I put off reading this last book because I didn't want it to end. I have to say that, even though I knew who she would end up with from the beginning, I was still rooting for the The Luuurve God. And even though I am now 28, I still laughed like a loon on loon tablets while reading this book. I am sad to see this end. I will miss you Georgia, vair vair much.
