It's a good thing I'm bored. Now you get to read my exquisite prose, huzzah.

So I'm bored and I don't want to do the gross amount of homework I have to do for science writing. What shall I do instead?

Waste time on my blog, of course. Do I have anything to talk about? Of course not. But whatever.

Oh, here's something good: my computer works again. Though after I got it back the first time, I couldn't find how to get on wireless, so I had to bring it back today. But it was a quick fix.

Glory in my post, ladies and gentlemen. It is born out of much strife.

In other news, I have found a new obsession that is probably not good for me. It is called and it is making me buy/read way more books than is healthy. Though there are support groups on it for book-buying addicts. Ha. It CAUSES these addictions. But at least I'm in a couple of book groups and can indulge in literary conversation that is not overpowered by 21 theater students at 8 in the morning. (Yes, that is what I am dealing with this semester, by the way. I'm pretty sure there were four people who were not some form of theater major, myself and my friend Bryan included. At least it's an alternative to coffee. Hey, I didn't say it was a good alternative.)

I'm starting a book group in a small circle of friends at IC too. I think the first choice is going to end up being The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, which just won the Newbery Award. And it's funny, because I was not the one to suggest it, though I've been wanting to read it; my friend Olivia did. I'll let you all know how big a failure this latest endeavor turns out to be. Hopefully it won't fail at all, but we'll see.

And in case any of you are wondering, I love country music, especially Rascall Flats. Whom I am listening to right now. "God bless the broken road / That led me straight to youuu." I know I'm annoying. What can I say. I enjoy their lyrics and melodies.

With these final words, I'll leave you with a final image as well. It's from Halloween. Guess who I am; bet you can't do it. And don't say anything if you knew already, that's CHEATING.

And no, I'm not the one on the right.

Just to be fair, I mentioned it in light of the original genre you suggested- young adult! Thanks for mentioning me in your post :-)
P.S.- This is Olivia- I forgot I had a temporary blog (that turned out to be pretty lame).

AHAHAHA I was like who the hell is elements...? But then I saw what you were talking about and I knew :) And it really is funny you suggested that particular book, because I had been shopping around for it online on Thursday night lol.

I want to read your blog now.
