Breaking the Rules....Maybe?

Am I allowed to talk about my personal life on here? I mean, technically the conference isn't for another five months (FIVE MONTHS OH MY GOSH) and I'm not making any progress, so I might as well, right? Is that breaking the rules? Oh well, I'm a risk taker.

Recently, I've read The Book Thief and Looking for Alaska and I must say, they are excellent reads. The Book Thief is probably one of my all time favorite books now. You can't help but fall in love with Liesel, Rudy, Hans, Max, Rosa, and everyone else in the entire book. Markus Zusak is such a great author, and if you haven't read it yet, I would highly suggest doing so. You won't regret it. Looking for Alaska was fantastic as well. I'm a huge John Green fan and this book was yet another example of how great he is.

On the topic of books, I've just started Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I kind of picked it up in Barnes & Noble without ever hearing about it or having someone recommend it to me, I just thought it looked good and "different". So if you've read it, I would love it if you would tell me if I'll like it or not. I'm only on page thirty and so far, I'm a little bit confused about what the "monsters" are but I guess I'll figure it out soon enough.

This whole week I've been alternating my time between school, district basketball games, homework, and sleep. In that order. So I'm a little bit tired. While I'm on the topic of district basketball, I should probably point out that every night, I was there being a dedicated photographer. So you know, I'm not completely slacking on my journalism stuff. People always ask me "Do you even like taking pictures at games?" and my response is always something smart like, "Well I kind of have to since I'm going to be a journalist/photojournalist one day." Yeah, I'm a little bit sassy and sarcastic, but isn't every journalist? It's actually quite funny.

This is my second blog post in one night, would you look at that! I just wanted to give you guys some fun reading material (good joke, Alissa...) Anyway, I'm done for the night. DFTBA (Nerdfighters will get that one) and have a great day/night, depending on your location in this world!


  1. Did You Miss Me?
    YES! I've been checking your blog often. And whether you like it or not, I think it's awesome reading material!

    1. Yay, that makes me happy! And update on the book: I'm almost finished with it, and so far I've loved it, and I need to get to Barnes & Noble quick so I can buy the sequel!
