This quote makes me happy: “When teachers say, 'This is the best time of your life,' they are wrong. They are only saying that because they’re teachers and they have to look at your weird faces every day. There is no 'best time of your life,' but rather perfect moments, like when someone’s gum falls out of their mouth while they’re telling a story, or when a jerk is walking toward you and accidentally gets hit in the head with a soccer ball. Make sure to store these moments in a safe place in your brain. They will be useful to you in the future, I promise.”
I spent last weekend on that beautiful lake with, among others, these two amazing people. You know that feeling when you come home from from a packed weekend and there's really no way to tell all the stories and share everything that happened? That's how I feel.
I don't like dropping off my blog for so long- it's become such a part of my life that not-blogging feels weird. Libby told me recently that she thought I've been a bit silent lately, and it's completely true. Which, for the record, is ok. I have work and college classes and school and friends and church and just stuff to do. I don't want to be in a place where this blog feels like more of a burden than a good thing. These once-a-week posts are working for me as long as they're working for you. :)
Here's some fun news:
-Markus Zusak is one of my favorite people. Period. He's amazing. If you haven't read any of his books, (my favorite) please fix that. Anyways, a few days ago I tweeted about how excited I am about his new book. (It's not coming out until September, unfortunately!) And then: He. Replied.
Markus Zusak, literary genius, author of one of my favorite books, amazing person, knows that I exist.
-John Green is speaking at Butler Uni on Tuesday. Guess who's going? This girl! *Hopefully* I can carpool with another friend. We'll hang out and eat pizza and meet John Green. Yeah. I'm excited.
-Have you seen the movie posters for the Hunger Games? Rue is my favorite, but I'm not a fan of Haymitch's hair, and what's up with Cato? I would rather not wait until March for this movie, thank you very much.
Is there anything you're particularly excited about?
