Hey guys! So today’s my birthday. YAY 🙂 I am the glorious age of 17. Well, as I’m writing this I’m in the last legs of being 16. But yeah, back in ye olde June 22, 1997, little me arrived. The whole world rejoiced, basically. You had to be there.
Technically, I should be able to get my P plates today. But you need 120 hours of driving to do that, and I’m nowhere near. Instead I’ll just walk places. Walking is nice.
What else happened this week? Well.
On Monday I had a drama performance (it’s a play about death. Basically, there’s a society that’s eradicated grief – sadness is not allowed. It’s VERY fun). On Thursday I had an in-class essay (would you believe I wrote FIVE practise essays for it? Way too many, in my opinion). The rest of the days I was doing the assignments that have accumulated towards the end of the term – like the teachers are saying QUICK DO THIS BEFORE YOU GO ON HOLIDAYS. Mind you, we also have holiday homework. So that’s fun.
This week was also PTA. Sadly, at the last minute I couldn’t attend, but it looked like so much fun! Always next year. But I did squeal a bit when this was posted on Twitter:
That’s ME in the top left corner! I’m alongside some of the awesomest Aussie blogs out there, so I’m very honoured.
Camp NaNoWriMo (or, as I like to refer to it, OKS, Organised Keyboard Smashing) is fast approaching. I’m using my extension English lessons to brainstorm. Don’t tell my teacher – we’re supposed to be watching Dr Strangelove or something.
And now let’s go to…
Stacking the Shelves is a book meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.
Side Effects May Vary from the Bookworld sale that’s going on at the moment. I bought this with birthday money from my grandparents, as well as two others (they haven’t arrived yet).
Dorothy Must Die from my dad (I told my sister I wanted it, and she told him). I got this one early since I wouldn’t be at my dad’s house for my ACTUAL birthday. It has this lovely raised font and a beautiful textured cover and I cannot WAIT to read it despite reading soooo many negative reviews.
BOOKS READ SINCE LAST WEEK
Both were awesome. My review of Spark and interview with Rachael Craw is coming up on the 1st of July, so look out for that!
This is quite good so far.
I’m reading this next because it has to be returned to the library soon. But Dorothy Must Die is SO after this.
GIF OF THE WEEK
(this cat is saying: why can’t school be OVER already? Okay, maybe that’s just me. One week left and then GLORIOUS HOLIDAYS in which I have to do not-so-glorious homework. Humph.)
