School, I mean. (And only for the most part; I still have some catch-up work and break work to do.) My co-op has finally finished, and concert season is winding down both for piano and choir. And none too soon; I may have been on the brink of an emotional or mental collapse! (Not really. But it felt like it.)
|Oh, yeah, this is totally me. (It's not me.)|
Which means that I'll finally get to stop seeming to ignore you guys! I can reply to y'all's lovely comments that make me so tremendously happy, and I can comment on your blog posts that I enjoy so. I truly do apologize for my absence recently, but school and music really have been rather hectic. You understand :)
I'm excited for Christmas break, in case you couldn't tell. Yes, yes, there are still some academic things to get done, and helping around the house and everything, BUT REALLY. I'm sooooooo looking forward to snuggling in and re-reading all zee favorites (not that I'll get through all the favorites, but a girl can dream): Inkheart, The Return of the King, The Last Battle, The Age of Innocence…ahhhhhhh :D
I'm down to the last shelf of the Bookshelf Project! How happy :D The lowdown on the second shelf should be coming sometime soonish.
A lot of you have been so kind as to tag me lately, and I really appreciate that, since I do love a tag! However, since I'm so behind on everything in the blogosphere, and since I'm still trying to stop the hyperventilation brought on by the past two weeks (not that I was seriously hyperventilating. Of course), I'm going to pass on all the lovely tags. They all seem really fun, but I think I need to "restart", as it were, on a clean slate.
Guys, I just watched this black-and-white Cary Grant movie called Penny Serenade, and WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO MY LIFE. I don't think you understand. I've been having movie hangover. It was so SAD and SWEET and heartbreaking and funny and beautiful and GOOD. I definitely plan on reviewing that soon.
Speaking of reviews, I'm going to force another post poll on you (I think I might do that too often). Which of these books/movies/TV shows would you lovelies most like me to review, or do you even give a rip? (It'd be totally fine if you didn't, btw.)
~ Penny Serenade (that's a bit of a given)
~ The Tourist
~ What A Girl Wants
~ The Princess Bride (book)
~ Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (it's high time I review that, no?)
~ Roman Holiday
~ My Fair Lady
~ While You Were Sleeping
~ Leverage (television)
~ Sherlock (television)
~ Amazing Grace
~ The Parent Trap (the newer one with Lindsay Lohan, and yes, I will argue with you if you want to try and tell me that the Hayley Mills version is the only true version…not that I've actually watched the Hayley Mills version, but the LL version is basically my childhood, so…)
~ The Nativity Story
~ Bringing Up Baby
Preferences? No promises, now ;) Those are just some random ideas.
Don't you just love when you read books, and you feel like the author just gets you? Like he or she simply understands your life, how you think, how you feel? What are some of those books, for you guys? I'se curious :)
This is really random, but one thing that I'm really excited for about Christmas (that seems extremely grammatically incorrect) is getting iTunes gift cards, because THERE ARE SO MANY WONDERFUL SONGS TO BUY. I've updated my wish list and everything--getting iTunes cards probably excites me too much ;)
I think I'm going to change my blog look soon. I know, I KNOW, I do that too often. But, while I like this arrangement, it's not really doing it for me. Plus, I have a header featuring Marian coming up, so this one doesn't really stand a chance ;)
Well, I can't really think of anything else to tell you, so I must just give one smirk, and then we can be rational again.
…And with this, I leave you.
I can't wait to catch up with you all :)
