How’s My Cadette?

Still alive and kicking, sir!

I know I’ve gone missing! Did any of you notice? Probably not. I went on a Church camp at Dogwood (wherever that is). I was having a lot of fun I couldn’t be bothered to take photos. I apologize.

Fine, I took two photos of flowers. That’s all. I’m pretty proud of these pictures because I’ve been trying to learn bokeh using my Nikon D3000 since you were born:

Anyway, about the books! I finished The Gaze last week, and I wrote about it here. It’s one of my favourite books now. Y’all should read it! I’m now reading Ian McEwan’s Atonement, and it’s taking me forever to finish Chapter 3 because my mind is still with The Gaze =_=. Has that ever happened to you? Haha.

Bad news: The stuff I ordered from ebay (total of 5 items, expecting 3 packages woo) still haven’t reached my mailbox huhu. I need them now!

Good news: My parents are back from Abu Dhabi, UAE! They just got here yesterday, and we went to the nearest sushi place last night. It was so fun. Yumyum. Also, my dad gave me his Amazon Kindle. Awesome. So. So. So. Awesome!!! OH RIGHT…

I got an A again, yo! WOOOO~ Linguistics <3

I need to fill ze Kindle with strange e-books like How To Cook Husbands. I’m excited!

I wish you a very very awesome week ;)

Books To Read: Summer 2011

This summer, I plan to read 9 books:

  1. The Gaze – Elif Shafak
  2. The Rules of Attraction – Bret Easton Ellis
  3. Ian McEwan – Atonement
  4. The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
  5. The Reader – Bernhard Schlink
  6. The Joy Luck Club – Amy Tan
  7. Fart Proudly – Benjamin Franklin
  8. Script Tease – Eric Nicol
  9. A Piece of Cake – Cupcake Brown

I was supposed to read Brown’s novel months ago. Teehee. I just got so busy (AND lazy) so that book remained untouched under my bed. I am now reading The Gaze. It’s pretty interesting!

I really WANT to be able to finish reading these 9 books (I might even borrow more) because these couple of months, when I try to read a book and put it down, I eventually forget that I am reading a book. It’s awful. I borrowed a book last month, and I returned it to the library without finishing it.

Anyway, so I decided to take a month off. I only have 1 class (history, every wednesdays). I can look for a part-time job again, but I don’t want to work yet. I think I’m going to get myself wasted this July. I am going to be a serious, full-time bum. At home with my ass on the floor with a good book in my hands ogling at each page bwahaha!

Books are like drugs to me sometimes. I mean…you don’t want to see me smell a book.
