Sleepyhead.

I am tired, but this 5 peppermint gum is helping me stay awake. I'm halfway through my exam week and I am ready to burst with joy. "Two more days," I shall chant. "Two more days!"

I've been researching various art classes held during the summer at a local museum. Choices, choices! Advanced pottery is out of the question but beginning isn't. Glass fusing and slumping sounds interesting as does sculpture in clay. Hmm. I think I'll have to narrow my selections by the timing or something.

Oddly enough my aversion to studying has propelled me to read two fiction books in the past two days.
This wicked fast pace is somewhat unusual for me. You should have seen me at the library when I checked the five books out. My friend Puja and I had been there to try to study for our IGCSE Chemistry exam (not a total bust, but I feel I did not pass with flying colors,) and she shook her head disbelieving I'd have any time in between studying to leisurely read. Can you blame me for becoming involved in other worlds? I mean, slaving over my 190 problem long study guide for history is not fun while the novel Looking for Alaska by John Green is. It's probably one of my favorite books. You should read it. The other book I read was North of Beautiful by Justina Chem Headley, which had its charming moments, I suppose.

I hope everyone's week is swell!

  1. Next year I'm taking a ceramics class which I'm pretty excited for. I can finally fit an art class into my schedule! Any of the ones you mentioned sound like they'd be fun.

    Yeah, Looking For Alaska is definitely about a gazillion times more amazing than studying... John Green is awesome. Have you been introduced to the awesome world of Nerdfighteria yet? www.youtube.com/vlogbrothers :)

    Anywho, good luck surviving your last two days of exams! You can do it!

  2. Ugh, glasswork? I wish I could pick up glass blowing, it would be so much fun!

    We still have three weeks of classes, but I am so tired these days, half the time it feels like an impossible goal to make it all the way to finals and state tests after that. And getting through that just feels nigh insurmountable...

    So yeah, I'm tired, how 'bout you?
    Oh, and Rain is better than Cobalt :P
