So, this has been an interesting experience thus far. It turns out that I am not good at keeping up a blog once the initial excitement is over. However, my parents/grandma are expecting a blog when I study abroad (I’m leaving in ten days! Scary!), so I guess I’m going to continue writing these. I guess I’ll keep up with this one for musings that don’t pertain to my travels.
If anyone is reading this and would like to continue to do so, now would be the time to let me know. Otherwise I don’t know that I’ll write again until June unless I find myself with free times or thoughts that I just must express.
So, Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays! I’m going to go read the book I need to finish before I leave for the UK. I haven’t made a lot of progress and it’s rather heavy so I’d rather not lug it with me.
Just realized I didn’t finish the Thirty Day Challenge. Fail.

I stopped the Thirty Day Challenge because I couldn’t finish this stupid list. I’ve come up with more now though!
Thirty Day Challenge: Five phrases/words that make you giggle/smile:
1. Bubbly. Say it out loud. It’s just so much fun!
2. Boobies. Okay, maybe this shouldn’t make me giggle like a middle schooler, but it’s just so silly!
3. Clusterfuck. It’s just such a good word. You have you use it sparingly though or else it loses its power.
4. Fus ro dah. I’m not exactly a gamer, but Jack has gotten me into Skyrim and it’s just such a good joke now. I’m more likely to say “boosh ro” though because “fus” somehow sounds like “boosh” to me and I don’t have the “dah” yet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ip7QZPw04Ks <watch this. You’ll understand.
5. Puppies. I really can’t even think about puppies without smiling. Or babies, but that’s less acceptable so we’re gonna stick with puppies.
I’m clearly getting a ton of studying done. Time to move on to Romeo and Juliet.
Because I don’t want to study yet, books everyone should read:
1. Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafron
2. Ender’s Game / Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card
3. Enchantment by Orson Scott Card
4. Something by John Green (Not a book called “Something,” but really just any one of his books)
5. The Boleyn Inheritance and The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory
6. Harry Potter series. But that should go without saying.
I’m sure I’ll think of more later.
