I finally finished and submitted the essay for my Arts class that I was taking in New York and finally took an inventory of the books I received over the past three or so weeks. Classes have begun again, which means that I won't be blogging as much as I have in the past, but now that my essay is over with I'll be blogging fairly regularly. I just finished reading The False Prince (at last!) and loved it. Which was wonderful because (1) I heard so many good things about it and loved to love it, and (2) it makes for an awesome return to the bookpile.
Other not-so-bookish-but-equally-awesome news: This semester, I'm taking Aikido, a self-defense based martial arts, and it's epic. I also love how I can tell people that I know how to hurt people now (if they make a wrong move), even if I haven't mastered the techniques yet (that'll come with time and practice).
Imagine My Mailbox
This covers quite a few weeks since I couldn't really check my mailbox while the two weeks I was in New York.
