3 Little Words

This week hasn't been great. I think two history classes, one of them a two hundred level, the other a three hundred level, was probably too much for a second quarter freshman. I've been slogging through reading, eating in my room, and dreading the mornings when I have to get up and go take notes until my eyes blur. Only three words have kept me going through this week.

Four Day Weekend. You see, I don't have class on Fridays, and I have Monday off, so I have four days to actually see friends, family, and catch up on all the reading I haven't been able to finish because I had to do more reading. It's complicated. But by 1:30 today I'll be done for the week!

This weekend I'm going home for a night, and I am going to spend that Kindle gift card. Thank you everyone who suggested books to me, it's a great help. I haven't been able to keep up with the latest releases this week because of all the work, and your support is priceless.

Another thing that helped this week: The Hunger Games. I'm rereading it...again. *shift eyes* I figure with the movie coming out in a couple months I need to remember everything. SQUEE I'm so excited! I'm not one for violent movies but I need to see this one. If you haven't seen the trailer, you need to.



  1. Hee. It's funny that you're rereading Hunger Games in preparation for the movie release. I'm doing the exact opposite - I really want to reread the books, but I'd rather they remain hazy in my head so I don't end up noticing all the things the movie did differently or left out. I noticed that with the Harry Potter books, it was better when I hadn't read the book in a while.

    Sounds like you've got a bit of a rough schedule this semester. You're a brave woman, taking on a third-year course in your first year! I felt with my degree the courses got a whole lot more interesting in third and fourth years... but as you found, also a lot more work. ;) Good luck with it all! And enjoy the long weekend. :)

  2. Well I'm partly reading it because I'd lent them to a friend at school who then gave them back to me, and they were then the only "new" fiction books on my bookcase.

    I hope you're works are going well, and that I'll hear from you soon!
