Books, school and such

In this post I remembered that I was trying to read more books this year.

I managed to somehow NOT read a shitload of books over the summer, and now that the school year has started up again, I've read three:

-Girl, Interrupted (I loved the movie, had started the book about 10 years ago but had never finished it)
-Last Night In Montreal by Emily St. James Mandel (she's a friend of mine and sent me an autographed copy. And maybe I'm biased, but I loved the book and think everyone should read it. Check it out if you're looking for a new read!)
-Stumbling Into The Light by Edwina Trentham (Edwina is a teacher of mine, and she's an absolutely fantastic lady. This is a book of her poems, and again, I may be biased, but I loved them, too.)


This equals only seven books in 10 months... I've gotta kick it up a notch if I want to get to at least 12 by December!

I've been feeling very disorganized lately, which is making for some difficult times in school. There's only one full month left of school (I'm not counting the rest of October, since it's almost over, and I won't count December since we're only in school until the 15th or so, and a lot of that is finals time.) and I really need to get myself organized again & fix any past failures. I fear I'm barely scraping by in Biology, especially. I just need a C to pass! Then I don't have to worry about this crap ever again.

It's hard though, especially considering I just started a new job. There is SO MUCH to learn, and I literally spent 8 hours at work today and then 4 hours at school. I'm a tired girl. And although I would very much like to sleep and NOT exert any more effort, I really need to.

I'll see you once I unbury myself from under these textbooks...
