quotes Elisquared likes


"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

I am CollegeBound!

I've always wanted to complete on of those "Classic Books Everyone Should Read" lists, I just haven't gotten around to finding one. But I was on Yes and Yes (which is a FANTASTIC blog by the way, and everyone (the invisible people who read this) should check it out), and I came across a list in one of her older blog posts.

CollegeBound
is a list of books split into several categories: American Lit., World Lit., Biography/History, Science, Social Science, Drama, and Poetry. And I realize it says "CollegeBound" and I'm already in college, but it's never too late.

I like that it is divided up into categories with descriptions and authors alphabetically. I have a love of alphabetizing stuff so that is always a plus. Another plus is that I've read many of the books on the list already (thank you Literature classes!) so hacking through the list by December 31st should be easy-pisey.

This is the first thing on my "Bucket List" which is going to be called "Eli's List of Shit to do Before She Dies" or "Eli's List" which is arguably shorter.

While this may sound like a morbid question, but what is on your (the invisible people who read this) "Bucket List"?

Maybe I should actually go watch that movie now...
