"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

Happy September

I can't believe it's already September. Life seems to go through these phases of super slow then super fast. May, June and July went by at a snail's pace, while August was on the back of a cheetah. With August comes classes, and with classes comes head aches.


Gorgeous right? My eyebrows need waxing, my hair is a mess, and I have huge circles under my eyes. This is what classes do to me. I turn into a zombie who's master is higher education. (And yes those are penguins behind me. PENGUINS!!)

I'm nervous about this semester. So so so nervous. Which is very strange because I really don't have many classes: only 4. That's only 12 credit hours. That is the least I've done in a normal school semester. I'm usually taking 15-18 credits. But these classes require a lot of outside work. So I'm very glad I'm only taking 4.

That's enough about my stressing out. On to better stuff. I received my eDeposit from the university. That is esstentially my left over loan money. This means I am no longer broke.

HURRAH!

I've paid off part of my credit card. Paid my rent until December. And bought some awesome stuff. Which is what I'm going to share with you.

  1. Supernatural Season 4
  2. Generation Kill
  3. Let it Snow
  4. Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List
  5. Melting Stone
  6. A Certain Slant of Light
I'm really excited! I love YA lit. My three favorite authors are John Green, Rachel Cohn, and Tamora Pierce. I literally read anything they've written. I'm such a book freak too. I keep saying all of it is for my future students, but when it comes time will I really want to let them borrow these books? I guess I'll know when I get there. But right now I can't wait until tomorrow!! Free two day shipping is AWESOME! Go Amazon!

That's pretty much it for now. I'm going to DragonCon this weekend, so expect a write up on that.

Peace, love & books,
Eli
