A little bit of everything!

After a jolly weekend of snow days, shopping, eating out, and seeing someone that part of you loves but the majority of you hates, at a Calvin vs. Hope basketball game, back to school I trudged this morning at 6:59 am. Yup, that's when I leave to get on the bus and get to school around 7:30 am. HALF HOUR BUS RIDE >:/ So anyway, I've been super busy. I've been writing two short stories that I have sent into magazines and working on my audition for AGT (America's Got Talent). Yes, I live in America. Yes, I am trying out for AGT! By the way, that reminds me.... the video auditions are dueTODAY! I have to do a video one because my parents wouldn't drive me down to St. Louis to audition on a school day. Anyway, wish me luck! I'm singing Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts, a beautiful song that I only have on problem with... it has almost no variation in range! Oh well, I'll try my best...

Also I've been entering a whole bunch of Hunger Games contests. I entered one put on by Barnes & Noble to win a trip to the Hunger Games Premiere on March 12 (the movie is out on March 23 but you can see the first showing on March 12!) but I didn't win :( Also I entered a contest to win a signed poster of Effie Trinket but I didn't win that either :( The past one I entered is to win a 4 person, all expense paid, trip to Los Angeles to go the Hunger Games Premeire and this ones even better than the B & N one because you get 4 tickets! Whereas at B & N you only get two tickets. Yay! 

I finished The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater and highly recommend it aside from the brief, mild inappropriate parts and swearing. I'll blog on it later hopefully! I have a huge stack of books waiting for me and right now am in the middle of Crossed, sequel to Matched by Ally Condie and so far I like it pretty well. Also in my ever growing stack of books is Ever by Gail Carson Levine (she also wrote Fairest, and I actually own that it was so good), Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater (wrote The Scorpio Races), Boys Without Names by Kashmira Sheth and Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Hush, Hush  is a book that I'm not quite sure about but I give books three strikes and after three they're out. Swearing, inappropriateness, and other things all count as strikes.

Happy Reading!

Hello there! Thanks so much for dropping by my little corner of the blogosphere. I'd really appreciate if you could give me a follow as well *hint, hint* These "about-me's" are literally the hardest things to write, but I'll have a go at it. You can call me July, or really whatever else floats your boat. I live in a very culturally proud little town that borders beautiful beaches, giving us fun for both summer and winter such as swimming, tanning, boating, skiing, ice-fishing, ice-berg walking, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach year-round. I hope to make it through high school and head off to college for, well, I don't know yet, but whatever it is, it'll be something I love. Robotics, books, movies, and music of all genres are kinda my thing. I would basically consider myself to be one of those stereotypical girls who fall desperately in love with fictional boys... I have a strange obsession with tea drunken from cute elephant mugs. So grab a cuppa and strap yourselves in for some brilliant stuff coming soon!
