2.) I love that despite leaving assignments and research papers until the very last minute, I always get it done hours before class starts and I somehow always get a good grade. (3AM is my magical time, I suspect)
3.) I'm gifting my friend with the entire Gemma Doyle series by Libba Bray*. Hopefully she'll enjoy the books as much as I did :)
4.) I keep donating books to my library but I feel awkward since I come with a BAG. Not one or two books but an entire bag--I just tell myself not to be embarrassed but I can see the librarians looking at me funny.
5.) I finished one of the required books-to-read for my geography class. It wasn't the best book ever, but I found a lot of things to like about it. There were a lot of quotes I liked but this one in particular jumped out at me:
Crap is fertilizer and allows stuff to grow. How absolutely true that is! It's applicable to anything really (the whole "practice makes perfect" notion) but since I always think about writing... I find that metaphor to be a perfect fit. No wonder writers and authors tell you to allow yourself to suck during the first draft, lol.
*Has anyone else read it? And did anyone cry furiously at the ending as I did?
