is full of randomness.
I’m studying for a Western Civilization CLEP test (3k years of history, y’all… I feel faint…), which has been taking up most of my time lately.
I’m also finishing up Becoming Nikki, which is soooo exciting. As most of y’all probably know, I wanted to have it done about three months ago so that I could do some publicity along with the Olympics (tomorrow!!), but that didn’t happen. So I shall have to get it out as fast as possible and leave the rest up to God. Then I can get on to Sneakers and another very top secret novel that I’m reeeally excited about. (Is that sneaky or what, Miss Jane?!)
Speaking of the Olympics…. Can’t wait to see THESE people again!! (And also Maia & Alex Shibutani, who are my new other favorites because they’re brother and sister… just like another ice dancing couple I know of…. *wink*)
I’ve also been getting back into Boy Meets World, the TV show I discovered during NaNo and didn’t want to tell you guys about because then you’ll get addicted. Never fear, it’s not on YouTube anymore. (“Weep, weep – all weep….”) I did buy the first two seasons around Thanksgiving, though, and have been slowly going through them by myself, then with my siblings. (My younger sister, who most of you know as Beatrice, is the vice president of the BMW Fan Club now. I take full responsibility.) It’s suuuuuch a good show. Why, you ask? Well, I’ll tell ya. As I told someone the other day, Boy Meets World is awesome because “it’s so different from modern TV shows. The main character has a serious moral dilemma, goes to his parents, mentors, etc for help and advice, and figures it out by the end of the episode. It’s kinda like The Cosby Show, except better.” And Girl Meets World is starting up soon, which will only deepen my love for this show.
And speaking of TV shows I love, there’s a movie coming out that I’m going to love, too. It’s called God’s Not Dead and I know I’ve already talked about it, but I’m going to talk about it again. My dad got two free tickets to a screening of it nearby because he’s a pastor (and he took my mom – isn’t that AWFUL?!). He said it was “great,” which is awesome because he walks out of basically every movie we watch saying, “It was cute.” He also came home with a bag full of promotional stuff and gave me a wristband and poster for the movie – yay!! Sooooo excited! I can’t wait to see it. You guys need to see it, too. It’s going to be phenomenal.
Also, I’ve been eating a lot of chocolate lately. Mostly to fuel my studying, and mostly to get rid of my Christmas candy. (What is up with that?! Why do people give us SO much candy around Christmas that it all goes bad before I can eat it all?! Good gracious.)
My family went to a friend’s house to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday because we don’t have cable. *yawn* That was the most boring, most depressing Super Bowl EVAH. Honestly. The next one needs to be better.
Oh, and Jessica Greyson, the author of Annabeth’s War, is hosting a giveaway on her blog! Go check it out – she’s giving away fifteen books. That’s something to get excited about!!
Well, Western Civ is calling my name. (That, and Josh Groban, who is serenading me as I study.)
