Hunger Games

Um, kinda addicted to this trilogy… thanks a lot, Lola! ;)

Best part: they’re making movies! Worst part: have to wait until March
This is the trailer.

March 23rd can’t come soon enough.

What Else Do You Do on Christmas Break???

So since it’s Christmas break, I’ve been reading. A lot. And crocheting a lot (my BFF’s scarf actually looks like a scarf! Pictures coming soon!) but more reading.

Completed books:
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (book 2 will be started today, book 3 done before I go back to school)
- Secrets, Unforgotten, and Echoes by Kristen Heizmann, one of my favorite authors

- The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Doyle… I’ve been reading this on my phone for quite some time, but I finished it last night

Started and yet to be completed:
- A Tale of Two Cities – it’s my Christmas break tradition, but I may have to postpone this one till summer
- Surprised by Oxford, recommended by my dear BFF who’s been there
- Clued In, a business book my dad recommended. My goal is to read approximately 20 pages every day (about a chapter) so that I can have it done before I leave

Books to hopefully read:
- Passion and Purity and another one by Elisabeth Elliot. I’m really excited about these, but since they are pretty standard library books, I may just have to read them over the course of my final semester.
Kind of random, but my dear BFF (I know, I've mentioned her like 5 times already. But she really is amazing, and I love her dearly, and I’m SO excited that I get to spend time with her this break.) is taking me to see “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” today. The cast is really strong, and it seems like it will be really mentally stimulating. The trailer I've been watching is here. I’ll post my thoughts on it soon. Hope your day is beautiful!

New Goals

Alright, readers, I must apologize. You have been sorely neglected this month (and this semester) and I’m sorry. So my goals for 2012 are as follows:

  1. Blog at least once a week. I owe you that much, and it’s not like I can’t get off some social media site for 20 minutes and keep you posted.
  2. Blog with pictures once a month. Come on. I follow all these amazing blogs who post multiple pictures per post, and I can at least do that once a month. I believe in myself! :)

That’s it! I know that 2 is a bit pathetic, and I know that I am a bit early, but hey, at least I’m blogging. Hope you had a merry Christmas!
