Your Smile On Fire

...from the song Xavia

these are the good things happening

Ok so I am at school and omg these keyboards are like ten times louder than the normal keyboard should be, as decided by Jordyn, the Keyboard Master. (Although to be fair the keyboard on my laptop is pretty loud too.)

      But yeah. I'm at school, between my Child Development class and my English 120 class. AND TO EVERYONE, MY TESTS ARE OVER AND YAY FOR THAT! Also, my apologies for my writing sounding a bit funny lately (or maybe it just sounds funny to me...) it's cos of the book I just read that was written (wrote?) in blog form with almost no punctuation and lots of lolcat language. (Erika if by chance you are reading this [and have figured out how to sign in, *crossed fingers* and leave comments] then you should know that the book I'm talking about is one of the ones we got at the bookstore and you have it too. serafina67 *urgently requires life* and it comes out in August and when it does you should all read it because it is hecka amusing.) (And thank you Dani for getting me to start using that prase, much like Becca got me to start saying "oy".) (And thank you to Jake, if she's reading this, for giving me ARC in the first place.) Oh hey. Look at all the name-dropping I just did up there. Yay me! Or pathetic me, depending on how you look at things.


So ok. Awhile back (actually not THAT long ago) a certain someone called me negative. You know who you are. (Haha, she doesn't even read this I don't think, so no use talking to her in the blog.) But anyways, since then I've been kinda trying to dial down the negative. And up the positive. Because even though I don't totally agree with her - I think I am a pretty positive person - I do see where she's coming from and yeah, I've become more and more negative in the last... er... couple years. So here goes my list of GOOD THINGS HAPPENING.

  • I am checking out Freakonomics from the library because I started my haitus when I was on page 120 and so now I'm really looking forward to actually FINISHING the book. And did you guys know Amy actually knows one of the authors of that book!? Omg awesomeness! (And oh yeah, check out my impressive nerdiness because I'm actually reading a book about economics.)
  • My tests are over for this week.
  • I have a big pile of brand-spanky new books sitting on the floor of my room, just waiting to be read.
  • The secret thing which I cannot yet talk about but it includes very possibly not having to share a bathroom with my marvie little sister anymore. Yay for being able to do my hair in the actual bathroom instead of bringing the hair straightener into my room!
  • The other secret thing, related to above secret thing.
  • Yay very happy for Mich for a number of reasons.
  • I turned in gobs of job applications, which hopefully means that sometime in the nearish future I might actually be employed and not be a very literate bum anymore. (Although no worries, I will still be very literate.)

And what else?

  • Yay for emailing Dani!
  • Yay for emailing Jake!
  • I finally finally finally found a Yes cd at the used music store Erika took me to when I was staying with her. I've been looking for one of those ever since the car my mom's Yes cd was in got stolen. (And ok, yes, Mom, you did convert me into liking Yes.)
  • The Writer's Strike is over! Which for those of you who don't know my television viewing habits as well as I do, means MORE EPISODES OF THE OFFICE!
  • I went to Nor Cal!

And now I have to get to class. More blogging later, friendlies.

I like the word friendlies.

Oh man. I've been meaning to read Freakonomics. I found the original call for teenage writers on the Freakonomics blog! So I figure I should read it, right? Plus, it sounds superinteresting. And seeing as it keeps randomly getting mentioned all the time, I should pick it up soon....
