Well not really an era, just a semester. I leave Reno. Tomorrow. I've gotten two class's grades back. Waiting on one English, finished the essays for Core humanities, as well as an extra credit essay and need to finish the essays for my other English class. And then I'm done with this semester. Luckily I have until Monday night to finish my English essays. I only need to do two, however, I'm desperately trying for straight A's, and I'm planning on doing all three essays, in hopes that she'll accept one as extra credit and boost my grade. And, worst case scenario that that doesn't happen, I'll have 4 as and a b and I'll make the deans list for the first time in my college career. Exciting for me.
In other news, Melissa Walker's fourth book hit stores this past Tuesday. I meant to check our Student Union bookstore to see if they had it in stock, and I might be able to make it up there today after I turn in my CH essays. So excited to read it! It's part of a grouping of books, they're all stand alone, but they have similar cover designs, and a summer/winter theme. So after reading hers, I'll go back and read the other book I've had on my bookshelf collecting dust.
Another exciting book release is Sarah Dessen's Along For the Ride
which comes out in June. I couldn't be more excited for it! It is coming out later than her last book last year, Lock and Key came out near my birthday and I remember buying an extra copy as a gift to Kristina. This year, it's past both our birthdays.
As for hot movies coming out this summer, I don't know what's coming out. Not having access to television and watching the commercials really hinders this sort of knowledge, but I've been better off without it that's for sure.
I've also started a newspaper article based on an event that happens each semester here at the university. I'm going to work on researching it and perfecting it this summer and try to get it submitted for one of the last issues of the paper in winter. I knew two people on staff at the Sagebrush, but I think they've both decided to end their reign on staff there and move on to bigger and better things. My friends Amy and Jessica
. I'm hoping that by the quality of the article it will make it into the opinions section.
I'm almost done packing. Almost. So ready to be done and be home that's for sure. Only a few hours more. Can't wait.
Summer, here I come.
