I’m in full swing of week 3 of teaching, which is sucking all of my brain power. I’m thinking about a lot, but unfortunately, seem to be lacking the general time/brainpower/creativity to turn it into an actual post. Here’s a little snippet of what I’m thinking about:
—I have weigh-in #2 at Weight Watchers tonight! Wish me luck! I’ve done pretty good this week, but only the scale can tell 🙂
—I seem to have finally overcome the Cold and Flu of Death, which feels fantastic, because fevers make me quite weepy and unlikeable, because for some reason, they make me even more emotional than normal, and that’s saying something.
—So, my commute is basically awful. I drive 67 miles each way, every single day. And it sucks. But, I recently set a goal of reading lots of classic books that I somehow avoided in college. So, I’ve been downloading them as audiobooks. First up? The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, which is lovely, and has made me considerably less stabby as I drive to work every single day. I could write post after post about the lack of knowledge I have from being an English major. I made it out of college without reading Pride and Prejudice or anything by Dickens. Yeah, I know. I am currently seeking to rectify the issue, and audiobooks seem to be working quite nicely. Plus, those saucy little British accents are adorable.
—Gilmore Girls is nearly coming to an end, as we’ve finally hit Season 7. I am still in love with the show, and feel awfully sad that soon, it’ll be over. And by “awfully sad” I mean I teared up when I put in the seventh season’s first disk. I’m looking for suggestions for the next show I should watch in it’s entirety. I have some of The Sopranos I’m going to watch next, but after that, I’m thinking Felicity. Anyone else have any good suggestions?
—Am I the only person who can’t freaking wait ’til fall? All I think about lately is scarves, cold weather and pumpkin-flavored everything, because that’s the best part of fall. I just want to see orange leaves, feel a crisp breeze and not have one cup of coffee reduce me to a disgusting sweat from its heat.
–I think I’ve written enough nerdy entries about books to make it obvious that I love books, but I want your opinion on something. If you are reading a book, and you just can’t get into it, do you keep reading? Or do you cut your losses and move on? I am one of those weirdos who usually is reading anywhere from 2-6 books at any one time, so I usually just avoid it until I can’t any more. And then I just forget about it. Still, I really admire people who can push through any book, just for the sake of finishing. So, what type of reader are you? Please vote below, I’m a nerd and I get off on things like this:
