Odds and Evens.

Go figure that. Joseph Morelli with a house, a dog, a steady job, and an SUV. And on odd days of the month he woke up wanting to marry me. It turns out I want to marry him on even days of the month, so to date we’ve been spared commitment.

Somehow I find myself running a Mud Run with a few of my friends this weekend (how they keep talking me into crazy such things, I don’t know). If I survive I’ll live to read another day! I am also finishing up my last final today, so I will have a much needed break before venturing on to my final semester as graduate student (!!). There will be many books ahead, but I’ll settle for the fair few I’m taking with me this weekend. I intend on reading a TON over the next month, so you’ll have to bear with me. (Read what you can, when you can, right?)

Wish me luck this week, I’m going to need it! (Also summer has hit here in Utah, and that means my Country music is back!)

I’m trying ENDLESSLY not to spend ridiculous amounts of money at Barnes and Noble this week. (I have repeatedly added so many things to my cart online, I can’t imagine what would happen if I stopped at the actual store) How many book totes can one person possibly need? Well I’ll tell you: A LOT. I’m a tote fanatic and I’m in dire need of this compass tote with a quote from Herman Melville….SWOON. Have I mentioned I’m slightly a fan of the quotes? Maybe if I get out one of my other totes, I won’t feel the need to buy a new one…or if I checkout another stack from the library, it will appear as if I bought a new book. Let’s be honest…there is not substitution to coming home with a brand new book. Though my workplace does stifle the need to purchase new books as often as I’d like. :)

I’m smack dab in the middle of finals (however, after this I will only have to experience finals one more time in my LIFE, so it’s not all bad), thus I have little time for reading (but believe me if I’m not trying). I’m moving slowly but surely through everything I can get my hands on! Happy reading (and listening) all!

Temporary Insanity.

I attributed the incidence to temporary insanity, and in my own defense, I’d like to say I haven’t run over anyone since.
