Life Update

My poor little blog has been rather neglected these past few months (and just as she was getting on her feet a bit). I am trying to prioritize her a little bit more; however, my life has been a bit of a whirlwind! So here are a few of my excuses and a little bit about what is going on with me!

  1. I decided to apply for grad school (*insert excited yet completely terrified shriek*). I had not originally planned to go back to school so soon, but through a variety of circumstances it became clear that this step is coming up now. So I am sending out applications and it is invigorating and nerve-wracking.
  2. I am trying to prioritize reading in my life and a healthier lifestyle in general. I was feeling pretty crappy so decided to take initiative and get myself back on track. That included less internet/screen time.
  3. Work. Yeah, that has to go in there somewhere. I was given a number of extra projects and I suppose money is important….
  4. LONDON! I am going to London in a few weeks to visit my bf and have been planning for the trip.
  5. Laziness. Yes, at heart I’ve just been lazy (lazy that is after working on grad school apps, reading, exercising, working, and planning…so I have a right to be a little bit lazy).

Anyway, that’s everything going on in my life! I hope to be posting a little more regularly again soon, especially in preparation for my trip!

 

Meanwhile, Oliver has been as sleepy as ever….

 

New Books!

It’s been a very long time since I’ve allowed myself to buy new books. That’s mostly because I have far too many books sitting on my shelf to be read.

However, the other day I caved. I couldn’t help but stop into a little local bookstore that always has great deals on books.

And boy, I’m glad I did. I found one book I’d wanted for a while and a couple that look really interesting and even a few that were a bit risky, all for about the same price as a book from any other bookstore.

I got all these books for just over $10! Needless to say I was very pleased with my find. Now, I just have to find time to read them. And about three dozen others sitting on my shelf.
