My break was mostly filled with schoolwork (and I'm still doing some now, blargghhh :/) but the veterinarian course that I was taking online is now done and dusted, and I'm now eagerly awaiting my results! :D Eeep, I really hope they're good! >.<
Otherwise, life wise, I fought very viciously against my evil reading slump. :| I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED.
Unfortunately, I won't be posting as much as I want to this week, due to getting ready to finish the term (holidays next week, YAY, YAY, YAY!! :D) and my family and I, are also going over OVERSEAS (cue excitement!) the first week of term for a holiday (BRING ON THE SUN is all I have to say ;)) so I'm going to have to start packing and getting ready for that! :D EXCITEMENT, EXCITEMENT, EXCITEMENT!!
ANYWAYS, today being the last day of June, and me having no ideas on what to post, I've decided to do a recap of June seeing as I didn't do one in May. Sooo, without further ado, off we go! Hold on to your socks, Wonderlings! ;)
~The Fairy Recaps~
June has been a kinda confusing month in the world of books. I'm still battling my evil reading slump and I read SOOOO many 1-star books and even two 0-star books (yep, I give them out) that it was DEPRESSING, but I DID read a couple of beauties as well, like Every Word (cue fangirling! SO CUTEEEE!! Easily surpassed my expectations!) and at the moment, I'm currently DEVOURING Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe and gosh, peoples! This book is AAAAMMAZINGGG!! Totally going to be a 6-star book, I JUST KNOW IT.
I got teary over a book!! No actual tears but my eyeballs definitely started to water slightly!! (Emphasis on 'slightly'.) The book was Me Since You, and man, oh, MAN, SUCH A CUTE BOOK. I reeeally didn't think I'd like it because it's about GRIEF and pretty much everyone knows by now that my heart is made of stone. No longer it seems as I really loved it, and felt the grief was really REAL. Also: ELI. That is all I have to say. ;)
I read 22 books in June, which I am NOT pleased about. :| I know I was doing schoolwork and life was busy and I had my reading slump, buuuuut, I'm still cross at myself and feel like those are just excuses. *frowns* I normally read AT LEAST 30+ books a month, so, June was pretty crappy in that regard. :| I'm going to read HEAPS of book in July though!! :D I have a BIIIIIG list! :D
After getting badgered almost to death, by my BF who decided that my life wasn't complete without reading Clockwork Angel, and made it her personal mission to make me read it. I did, but only on the condition that SHE read Throne Of Glass (because, OF COURSE, her life isn't complete without Cealena in it I DID try this earlier this year but couldn't get past the terrible beginning and after reading City Of Bones I swore I'd never read anything by Cassandra Clare again. It s my BF's fault that I broke that oath not mine. Surprisingly, I liked it waaay more this time, and I'm considering reading the sequel (again, emphasis on 'considering' ;)), though, FOR THE LOVE OF LOLLYPOPS, SOMEONE PUT A BULLET IN WILL'S BRAIN FOR ME, PLEASEEE?! Geez, talk about ANNOYING overload! Needed a good squirt of Pesty Character Bug Spray in my opinion!
~Outside the Books~
This month, I went to A Midsummer Night's Dream play with a bunch of other teenagers, and WOWZERS. SO GOOD. I was really surprised as I was kind of expecting to be average, buuut, I was proved wrong and I'm so glad I was! :D Plus, we got to see behind the scenes AND THE DRESSING ROOMS ACTUALLY HAD LIGHT BULBS ROUND THE MIRRORS!!! Most frabjous thing to see EVEERR!! x) So I loved seeing that, although sitting in a tiny seat for almost 3 hours without being able to walk around (also without FOOD. I was almost DYING when we had a break about 2 hours in) was painful to say the least. Being quite a tall person (5"10 at last measure up) my legs seemed to be around my ears most of the time! But the play was fantastic so it was worth it!
I went to TFIOS movie with my BF and laughed hysterically during all the sad scenes. My BF saved me from being savagely murdered by frenzied fangirls and I used heaps of The Young Ones GIFS to show you how I felt about it. MOVIE REVIEW HERE.
I did a six hour basic Chemistry course at my local University. It was really fun and interesting and it was BEYOND fabulous to put on a REAL LAB COAT and go into A REAL LAB and use REAL LAB EQUIPMENT. I'm still really proud of it as you can see. ;) I didn't blow anything up, which I was really freaked out I would, because knowing me, and knowing my luck, I could just see it happening. (Shows what brilliant self esteem I have, lol. :P) While I didn't blow anything up, my lab partner and I accidentally ruined a jar full of peroxide. *cringes* We just kind of accidentally put water in it by mistake and theeeen, well the rest is history. >.<
That's my month in a nut shell (blog post sized XD)!! How was YOUR month?! Highlights?! Downfalls?! Anyone else in a reading slump?! Anyone else had disastrous science experiences?! I'm thinking that's a no...
