on the bookshelf: sort of part III
“Over Christmas break, I’m going to read all the books I’ve been thinking about this semester but felt guilty reading since I had other work to do.”
You could have quoted me on that.
With my being home for break and all and currently not being employed for the (now dwindling) weeks I’m home, you would think I had plenty of time on my hands.
Time to play in the kitchen, time to sleep the morning away, time to blog, time to catch up on blogs…
This is not the case.
Sure, I’m crazy busy during the semester with work, internships, classes, assignments, and attempts at socializing, but home I’m just as busy. It may be in a different, less-stressful way, but I’m still going like the energizer bunny and come 8pm, left wondering where the day went and deciding what I should eat for dinner from Trisha’s refrigerator.
My days have been consumed with visiting family, catching up with friends, (sometimes) exercising here and there, driving siblings around, helping my parents, etc.
Numerous trips have been made to Starbucks to help accomplish these missions.
Not that I’m complaining at all. I love being home and I’m more than happy to spend my hours doing such things.
The calendar shows my days of break are dwindling, though, and I have yet to get to the library.
1) Get to the library.
2) Check out the two books I’ve been aching to read.
3) Set aside time for reading. (Directions to a friend’s house to pick up a sibling DO NOT count.)
I’ve been loyal fans of both The Hunger Games books and The Mortal Instruments books since they first hit shelves. I’m proud to say I have a knack for being an original fan of some pretty popular series. By this I mean I’ve read the first book before the second was even in production.
The Twilight series? You bet I read Twilight in 2005. Yes, that also means I often have to wait a while for the next book to come out, but clearly that’s not a problem for me when class assignments or siblings are calling me up for duty.
Speaking of duty, I better get started on my mission before the morning gets away from me.
