What's Up Wednesday!
Here we go, Wednesday!
What I'm Reading
I finished HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG by Andre Dubus III for class and CHAMPION for fun. I'm currently reading CODE NAME VERITY because I've heard buzz about it for ages, but I'm having a little bit of a hard time so far. I think the format has thrown me off (the narrator is a British spy writing confessions and information to her German captors) but I'm sticking with it! I'm also reading a book called KING OF THE BADGERS by Philip Hensher for my Contemp. Novels class. Last book of the semester, let's do this!
What I'm Writing
Revisions revisions revisions! I turned in my short story portfolio yesterday (cheer!) and just finished revisions of my travel writing portfolio (double cheer!) which I'll turn in tomorrow. All that's left is a 15 page paper on a topic I have yet to determine...wish me luck!
What Inspires Me Right Now
The light at the end of the long dark tunnel is starting to get brighter. I've been ready for the end of the semester since...January. Now that it's almost here, I'm so excited!
What Else Is New
In an effort to eliminate unnecessary stress in my life, I quit my job in Student Activities last week. Event planning is too much for me to handle, and the job stopped being fun for me a long time ago. I'm lucky enough that the company I work for during the summer/winter vacations has an office in Pittsburgh and they've agreed to let me come in a few days a week and work for them! So I'll be starting that in the fall. Can't wait!
In other news, my car is officially up and running again. Hooray!
In other other news, I'm loving my Kindle!!! I haven't bought any books on it yet since I still have several physical copies I need to read, but I've been downloading the free samples of the first few chapters of books and reading them (much nicer than scrolling through them on a computer) and adding to my Need To Buy booklist. So much fun!
Happy Wednesday everyone!
