trackback

As much as I’d very much like to go right back into my blogging mojo, I just can’t. My conscience (which, you may care to know, is named Hermione Granger) is telling me that I have five finals coming up next week and I better get cracking on four of them. So I must undergo a blogging hybernation, but I would love to blog more than once a week. *glares angrily at Hermione* But I shall be back on Friday.

Actually, scratch that. I will, but I won’t. I’m going to private this blog–as well as Butterfly Forest–for some major blog maintenance (or at least, I hope to do so). Don’t freak out (like don’t think I’m blocking off my blog to the world or something, ha), just keep coming back and checking. When they do reopen, I should have several new sections, no new layout (because I love this layout; the header picture just totally fits in with the quote up top), but two new posts on here (one will be privated, the other will be explaining why it is privated) and a new review (with another following) on Butterfly Forest.

And then…SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man, I just canNOT wait for that horrible, ear-tearing beautiful bell to ring at last (though it will be, I must admit, bittersweet). I already have a to-do list, and since this is my little corner of the net to ramble, I shall lay out my to-do list right here, right now.

  • Blog maintenance (as just stated)
  • Karoke (because I haven’t used my karoke machine in over a year now 😛 😦 )
  • Write a TON of reviews
  • Read the thirty-nine books that I’ve kept for years now and that have been patiently waiting on my shelf
  • E-mail everyone I meant to e-mail (I’m so, so, so, so, so sorry to everyone who has been e-mailing me, but Hermione someone has been banning me from doing so)
  • E-mail my portfolio project to everyone who helped (because, as I have previously stated in other posts, you all ROCK!!!!!!)
  • Call all of my friends (and probably end up talking for hours on end) and finish up a video with animeactress (girly, we need to talk!! 😀 )
  • After June 30, take a trip to the bookstore to “restock”, and try to figure out how to snag amazing ARCs (and if I don’t like them…well, maybe I will give them away on Goodreads or hold contests over at Butterfly Forest for anyone who wants them, haha)
  • Netflix for the whole summer (w00t! w00t! My family and I NEED to finish I Dream of Jeannie!!)
  • Figure out how to get to interview authors
  • Manage my Goodreads to-read list
  • Edit my stories so that they are at least somewhat presentable to all my friends who requested copies of them
  • Make my “Portable Mini-Quote Wall” where I include inside jokes, quotes, and conversations from LRRH, Twitter, yearbook, and other random places (I will need your help on this one)
  • Figure out more books I want to-read
  • Do some amazingly cool picture editing stuff like what Delaney is PRO at
  • Add lyrics to my iTunes library (because that would be AMAZING to have the lyrics to some of my songs on my iPod)
  • Get back on the treadmill and bike over the weekends, since I am officially not sick anymore
  • YEARBOOK CAMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

So, as you can see, I will have an amazing summer. As long as these (see below) don’t spoil it.

  • SAT Prep camp (which is three times a week, about five hours each session *already feels worn out*)
  • Trig/PreCal tutoring
  • Driver’s ed
  • APUSH summer assignment of five chapters (which, thankfully, I’ve already read, back a few months ago) all HAND-WRITTEN 😮

Hm. I’m quite convinced there was more than that. Oh well. I’d like to think that’s all there is, when there is a whole bunch more fun stuff I will be doing this summer.

But first things first. Finals. Better get back to studying for them now. What finals are you all (or did you all, for those of you whose summer vacation already began, and phoo on you for your summer starting beforehand *is jealous*) take this year? Wish me luck! 😀

P.S. I know I said I would leave, but I just had to do this now. Reviewer X is having this fantastic giveaway of Lisa Mantchev’s debut novel, Eyes Like Stars. She just made a “Pub Story” about Lisa here, but you can enter in the fun here. Good luck! 😀

Good luck with your studying! I hate finals.

2. spider - June 14, 2009

Good luck on your finals! I had to take Gym (*gags), PreCalc, and English finals, but that’s it.

Gah, Drivers Ed and APUSH stuff. I feel your pain.

3. bookbutterfly - June 14, 2009

Thanks, you guys! 😀 Hopefully, these finals won’t be a total pain in the neck.

Spider: Did you have a summer assignment to do, too? 😛

4. spider - June 15, 2009

I have four summer assignments for it. (Three books that I then have to write a minimum of six pages about (per book, so at least eighteen pages total) and I also have to get through chapter eight in our textbook.) Of course, here we pair APUSH with Honors English, so some of that isn’t strictly history stuff.

5. bookbutterfly - June 15, 2009

O.O MAN. That sounds worse than my summer assignment. We just have five chapters, but it’s in just one (very thick, I might add) textbook. At my school, AP World History is paired with Honors English, and APUSH with AP Lit. 🙂

To everyone: please read the post scriptum, s’il vous plait! 😀
