Last year I set out to read 100 books, but I ran out of time and only read 75. So this year, I will read one hundred books. And you're my witness :) The only thing stopping me this year is 9 seasons' worth of Seinfeld episodes- wish me luck!

69. and 70. sha-wing
alright, i am a bit behind, i know. i'm working on it. i'm also working on several large projects and papers and presentations.... the list goes on. BUT, i am enjoying everything (as of right now, when i have optimism towards the opportunity to do homework that will pop up all weekend long; talk to me on sunday night) i am liking the process of doing all the menial tasks involved in the GRADUATION process. yes, graduation. in seven months, i will have a degree. from a college, not just my dinky high school diploma. oh yeah that's right. it is a little hard to see the forest for the trees right now, but eventually i will remember how glad i am to be so close to that time when i no longer have to look at my clock and think "if i miss this class, how much will it really matter?" damn i'm going to miss it. but right now, let's just focus on how much i do not like school. it is sucking up all my reading time. naughty naughty school. but i have managed to squeeze in a few here and there- Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bissinger was a keeper of a true story (no "based on a..." b.s. here) and Sizzling Sixteen, the latest Janet Evanovich novel. also known as the easiest 309 page book to read found out of the children's section ever. but it was mildly entertaining, which is all i can ask for in a sea of floppy-backed books about teaching writing for insightful students blah blah blah. but on another note, i think i may read a little tonight, too. it is friday, after all, and i have to reward myself for going to class this morning- it's reeeeally hard to make myself put on real clothes and makeup and wait for the bus for 50 minutes worth of class. i spend more time getting ready and waiting for transit than i do in class. it's a time issue with me, not a laziness. ha. but i did! then i came home and took some nyquil sinus! yaaaay! then i wrote the first half of a rationale for a midterm project due in like 5 days that i just now started and then i took a nap and watched modern family!!!!!! it's been a day of excitement for me!!!!! ha ha ha!!!!!!! alright, i'm done with the exclamation marks. so tonight, this monumental night, i am going to be thankful for two things, rather than look at the unpleasant side of them (which i totally could, but i'm not going to): 1. my roommate is too hung over to invite her friends over to drink beer and watch weird crappy godzilla remake movies in our living room, so i can use my kitchen to eat and drink whatever i like without judgement and 2. i have declared tonight a "no pants night." that's right, i have shed my pajama pants and gone hog wild. well, not so much hog wild, but i am going to pretend i don't have any pants for the evening, as i once did in the comfort of my private dorm room so many years ago. while i would do anything to have my boyfriend here to hang out with me, i am going to enjoy the fact that i can go sans pants and enjoy his XL t-shirt without having to look pretty. which is nice because i'm pretty sure i'm lookin heinous right now, and lookin pretty would be a lot of effort at this point in time. i have couch lines on my face from my nap, for instance. foundation cannot cover that shit up. trust me, i've tried. so look- i have a glorious night on my hands. and the whole weekend to do everything i've ever wanted and everything i did not want to do: homework, presentations, writing assessments, reading ,watching netflix, sleeping, eating, cooking, cleaning, getting coffee...... i know, i'm super exciting. no need to tell me twice.
p.s. friday night lights: good, but too long-winded
sizzling sixteen: decent, but nothing like to good old days of stephanie plum
