Why, you ask, am I sitting here at my lovely Mac, typing this post, when I should be at school? Well, I answer with a barely disguised smirk, I DON'T HAVE TO BE THERE UNTIL 9:40!!!!! That's right, people.
The reason: WINTER WONDER DAYS!!!! Prep has this lovely thing that happens for four Mondays, starting in late January and ending in February. It's where you can choose skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, or ice skating/swimming, and do it all Monday, every Monday. I chose ice skating/swimming just because I am Emily the Non-Skiier/Snowboarder, and here I am.
Anyway, to more important things...I'M READING GONE WITH THE WIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST BOOK IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE AND YOU HAVE TO READ IT AND THAT MEANS EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously. It is the best book ever. I'm not kidding. Read it. Live it. Be it.
January is almost over. That means a few things:
1. It's almost Valentine's Day! I love Valentine's Day, and that includes the movie. You get candy and hearts. It is awesome.
2. I get the results back from the ERB tests. I forget what those letters stand for...oh yeah, I think it's Educational Record Bureau or something like that. They're basically standardized tests. Please, dear friends, pray for me that I get a good score, because those of you who are familiar with my dear father know what will happen if I don't.
And...it's January 24th, which means it's exactly two months until the most important day in the entire universe. (I'll give you a moment to think.) Okay, thought about it? Yes, you guessed right (or wrong, as the case may be): my birthday!!!!!! :) I'll be fourteen!!!!!!
School is beating me down, which is why I'm kind of happy about Winter Wonder Days. (On the Prep calendar it just says WWD, and the first time I saw it I thought it meant, like, World War D or something like that.) Projects are due and we're just beginning to dig into the semester. But I will pull through. I always do, and with flying colors, no less. :)
On top of that I have two new book ideas beating around in my brain, each demanding my full attention. I can't tell you about them yet, but I will definitely NOT be posting them on Inkpop. I already have part of one book on there, and I've realized that I would just rather send stuff to publishers right away. Inkpop was a wonderful jumping-off point, though, and I will still be on there regularly, so thank you, my Inkpop buddies! I will always be grateful. :) <3
Wish me luck, and I wish you all luck and friendship with whatever you happen to be doing right now. :) <3
