Hello everyone! How have you been? This past week was great for me! Here's what I did in no particular order;
Yesterday, Saturday, I went to the scholastic warehouse book sale! The scholastic warehouse is a magical place. It's basically where all the books return to if the scholastic book sale couldn't sell them all, and usually at reduced prices! Do you remember the book sales in elementary and middle school? yeah, it's basically that. Now, you may be thinking, "if this is the return books from those elementary school sales, then aren't they mostly kiddie books?" and yes, the majority of the books ARE for really young readers, but I never fail to find at least 2 or 3 interesting novel-length books. This time I picked up "Maze Runner", "Variant", "The Eight Day", and "Barcode Prophecy". I also got a really handy encyclopedia on molecules. Last year I got an encyclopedia on the periodic table of elements. I kind of feel bad about buying more books when I already have so much I need to read and re-read, but I love books. It's like Christmas in may. Scholastic warehouse book sales happen twice a year and they're open to everyone, but really only advertised to teachers. If you're interested in this glorious event, give it a google search and learn when and where the next book sale is happening near you!
I finished reading through the second book of the complete Calvin and Hobbes series and I'm now on the third and final book. I'll probably finish this week. I also finished re-reading through my homestuck comic books (in truth, I really only read them for the author annotations at the bottom because they're funny). Oh, and I finished reading Guards! Guards!, which was the book I borrowed from a friend at college. It was okay. I know Terry Pratchett is praised for being a funny writer, and I can SEE where the jokes are, but I just don't find them laugh-out-loud funny. The same thing happened when I read hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. They're still both good books, it's just hard to make me laugh through most writing. (The Percy Jackson and the Olympians, as well as Marley and Me do it well, though)
I had my interview with the zoo. It happened via phone, and it happened at 10 am and it woke me up. I tried my best to articulate with the interviewer, but from what I understand I got the job and now I need to wait and hear back from the supervisor of the bird department to learn when I start working. (at least I hope that's what I need to do. I really hope they don't expect me to come in and just start. I really don't want to show up unannounced and I don't know how long I should wait before I call back to find out, or IF I should even call back. This gets more awkward with every passing hour.)
I finished scripting the first third of all my comic index cards! It comes in at an estimated 148 pages so far, but this may change as I actually draw them and get the ideas out on paper. I would expect it to shorten up to a total of 1/3rd the estimated pages.
I had a scrubs marathon with thelastperformer
and we made it through the half the first season. (12 episodes in a 4.5 hour sitting). Then we watched the silence of the lambs. It was my first time seeing the movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially the moths. Yay, entomology.
WATCHED ALL THE THUNDERSTORMS. God, I love stormy weather. So pretty. Much loud. Very rain.
Fallen off my exercise routine. I keep getting distracted. :/
still listened to skaia.net radio to much. I've started to learn all the official and fan songs by name AND album.
How has your week been? Did you do anything amazing? Anything different? Anything new? I hope you're all doing well and wish you the best~
