I officially have a job! I mean, I have to fill out the paperwork on Tuesday at the regional headquarters, but then I will be officially employed! It's just a little part-time job, but I couldn't be happier. Not only does it mean more money for books (yes!) but it also means I can start saving up for my Junior year study abroad program. It's not until 2018, but I'm already looking forward to studying half the year in London. Anyway, things are really starting to look up :)
When I got called in to do an interview at first I was excited and out of my mind with joy... and then I was out of my mind with worry and anxiety. It was pretty bad again. Not as awful as it was a few weeks ago, but I definitely wasn't able to think clearly. People in the bookish community have been super supportive, but I wanted to do a quick shout-out to a few who were at the right place at the right time and helped me out more than my words can describe. Even if it's just a simple piece of advice, it helped me more than they might know. Those people are:
Lauren Stoolfire (@SunSoar25)
and, one of the most wonderful people on the internet,
You should go follow all of them right now! If you don't have a twitter or tumblr, create one just to follow them!
Now, onto the bookish things!!!!
(Also, I'm sorry this post is so late I traveled yesterday to visit a town two hours away just to have lunch and look at some canons from the civil war and when I got back I was so tired and the days before were full of anxious energy.)
Finished this Week
Nothing huge, but I'm glad because I don't want to burn myself out. I read volumes 12 and 13 or Noragami and it's really, really good. They've been such a good resource for turning my smile into a frown lately and also making me feel all the feelz. When I'm all caught up with the series I think I might review it, but we'll see since it's a hard series to review without every other sentence being "JUST READ IT".
I'm still in the middle of And I Darken and really enjoying it, it's just dense (in a good way!). I'm also about two thirds done with Clash of Kings, and I'm enjoying that as well. When I finish And I Darken I will be picking up Assassin's Blade, and that should take me through the week.
