Song of the day: Britt Nicole - Gold

So I've been reading a lot recently as well, and actually, it's making me feel really great! Like I read a tonne as a child, and then started reading more earlier today after falling off it a bit, but more recently I've just been addicted to reading. I don't know if it's just the novelty of my Kindle or something else, but I really love it! I just got done reading Lessons in Love by Charlie Cochrane (it's a historical gay romance/murder mystery) and I recommend it to pretty much everyone!

Also, I might do a Kindle review soon, so stay tuned for that! Anyways, school has still had quite a bit of work. We got a digital version of our precalc textbook that I tried to get onto tonight to do my homework, but it expired. :( Though it was working Friday, so I don't know what went wrong, especially as we only got it a week or two ago. I had to get a friend to send pictures of the pages.

Also, AP Human Geo is still a drag. I don't know why anybody takes AP Social Studies, unless they're super good at it. I just wish that I could've done AP in a subject I'm very strong with, like languages perhaps. Though thankfully, I'll have opportunities in future to do those. But actually, I don't even know if the universities I'm looking at offer credit for doing well on AP exams. I'll have to look into that.

Also, how are we only a month into school? 4 or so weeks already feels like a year, and the weeks seem to drag on so much! I already can't wait for Thanksgiving break. ;-;

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Roh Tae Hyun - BiRTHday

So I've been reading like a fiend on my Kindle! I'm around 40% through my book for school, and I borrowed a copy of The Gentleman's Guide to Vide and Virtue from my local library, and I'm already 70% through it! You should all read it :) I also downloaded two free romance books from the Kindle charts (they both sounded... entertaining, and one sounded entirely ridiculous. That one's called Her Cowboy King if you're wondering.) Plus, I got a gay romance book for $0.99 which apparently is super cute and I have some others on my radar! I'm so excited to read some more :)

Speaking of literary stuff, English class! (OK, my segue game's dropped off since last time.) Anyways, I turned in my first essay last weekend and am anxiously awaiting my grade. The teacher said it was really good when she reviewed my first draft, but nonetheless I'm still slightly scared that I'm going to flunk. Ugh.

Speaking of school (slightly better), I was talking with my grandparents and little cousin on the phone earlier and asking her about school. (She's in second grade this year.) I asked her what she was doing in math (apparently her favourite subject) and she said she was doing addition. Now that brings me back a bit. And then I told her that I'm doing parabolas in precalc class, and she proceeded to giggle for a minute straight about the word "parabola". Ah, childhood, I hardly knew ye.

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Jesse McCartney - Beautiful Soul

So I finally got my Verivery album yesterday, almost an entire month after it was released! Unfortunately, it didn't come with the special poster as apparently I was out of the preorder window. On the upside, though, the company compensated by giving me like 10 BTS photocards and four BTS sticker sheets! Speaking of BTS, I've been playing BTS World on my phone recently and it's a really great game!

Also, speaking of stuff involving BTS, fanfiction! I want to write a crackfic, and so I've turned to Wattpad for research. I've had the app on my phone since around the time I got it, and I had it on my old phone, but it sat pretty much dormant until this week. I did also have it on my old iPod touch, and read it avidly on there in my preteen days, but this is my first big delve back into it.

Also, speaking of reading, (am I on a roll today or what?) I got a Kindle today out of the blue! I need to read a book for my Current Events class by the 7th, and the only way to get it on time was to get it on a Kindle, so my mother just handed me a new Kindle today when I was at my computer without context. I think she must've bought it on Prime Day (they were seriously discounted) and meant for it to be my Christmas present, but the need arose early, so I have it now. It has this super cute pink flamingo cover and I'm so excited to read stuff on it!

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Avril Lavigne - I'm With You

At last, autumn has arrived! Today's high was 22, as opposed to yesterday, which was 32 or 33. It's so friggin' nice!! Also, there was some rain last night and this morning, which made me very happy. (Except for the power flickers yesterday evening.) This morning was just some nice, lgith showers, but it was raining a whole petting zoo last night. Sadly, it doesn't look like there'll be any more rain this week.

Meanwhile, iOS 15 is out! Now I'm paitiently awaiting macOS Monterey. I set my phone to download it this morning, which it somehow did, despite my school's abismal Wi-Fi. Actually, in the middle of bio, I pulled my phone out to look something up, and it had updated itself! Most of the new stuff is small but cool, though I have to say that the new design for notification pop-ups just seems off to me. Oh well, I'm sure I'll get used to it in time.

Also, we finished reading The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde in English, so we're going to watch the movie! It's the one that stars Colin Firth (hunka hunka) and Dame Judi Dench, so I'm already happy with it. Also, random thought, but why isn't Colin Firth a sir? I should write the Queen about it. Imagine if she read it, of all the letter she must get! Someone should start a petition to the British Parliament to have Colin Firth knighted.

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Backstreet Boys - Shape of My Heart

Finally, a three-day weekend! My school has some sort of inspection going on, so the teachers are taking Monday to work on that and we don't have school. :) It's just the rest I need after this hectic past week with the map and all. It's only less than a month into school, but it's already a bit exhausting. Actually, it's pretty much just Human Geo that's draining. But such is the AP life. Though, I suppose it may just be a thing with one teacher as I've not had any other AP classes. Hopefully the other AP classes I'll inevitably take will be less frantic.

Also, I recently remembered a site I found a while back called "Stories My Grandma Told Me". (link here) It's kind of a scary stories Web site, and after my latest English assignment, I'm back to being interested in creative writing. Sadly, I don't have creative writing class next semester, though I do have Art, another class I like. There's always next year!

Also, it's been consistently dry and almost always sunny for the past couple of weeks where I live and I am fed up with it! It was supposed to rain later this week, but just like every other rain prediction the past few weeks, it's been downgraded to "partly cloudy". British people have it good! (At least precipitation wise, I heard it gets super hot in the summers there)

Also, I'm kinda upset because I just remembered two online writers I loved a tonne (one I found in my old Wattpad library from when I was 12 when I looked through my old iPod touch and I found the other's tumblr stories in my bookmarks). Anyways, I looked for both of their profiles on their respective sites, but they were gone! :( I probably should've used the Internet Archive or something when I had the chance, because those were some good stories that are now lost forever. :(

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: SS501 - Snow Prince

At last, my homework frenzy is over. Like the calm after the storm, today I only had a few precalc problems to do for tomorrow. I think I did pretty well on my map, though I couple of people commented on it having "too much white space". I prefer to see it as minimalism. Or maybe I just couldn't be bothered. Who knows?

Also (shameless self-promo) I started a new site to post my stupid anecdotes! I have my first story written and ready to post. I have my first stupid story up now and there are many more to come! You can also subscribe with your favourite RSS reader! (I personally like The Old Reader (based off Google Reader) and NetNewsWire.)

Also, I've had some Adventures in Updating recently. I tried to update my iPhone to iOS 14.8 via my computer, all old-school, but it kept having issues and the ETA was 6 hours, so I gave up. It took like a half-hour on my phone itself. WHAT?!? Anyways, I had to leave my MacBook updating to OS X 11.6 or whatever overnight, and when it comes to my iMac, I tried doing it, but it got stuck on "preparing - ten minutes left". I'll have to try again tomorrow.

Also, I went to have a turkey and cheese sandwich this evening for dinner, but we only had end slices of bread, so I got a tortilla instead and made a wrap. I also got a couple of basil leaves from our garden and the one tiny tomato we grew this year and made a really nice wrap! It was my first turkey wrap as I've only had chicken wraps before, and I really liked it!

Anyways, that's about all I have to talk about, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: Wonho - Blue

So once again, I have a crap-ton of homework, so sorry if this is too short!

So I have a map project to work on for Human Geo. It was supposed to be do yesterday but THANK GOD he pushed it back to Thursday, whcih is more time, if not enough to do it comfortable. He keeps saying that he posted the assignment over a week ago, but we couldn't use the projector to trace our maps until yesterday, which is the big starting point. Anyways, we have to talk about what we did this summer. One classmte talked about his escapades when he went to California, which he described as "not that much". What is my summer, chopped liver?

Speaking of California, whoever was rowing my Verivery album across the Pacific in a canoe or whatever finally arrived in LA, because I found out that it got there today. Which means they've got a hell of a lot of work to do if it's supposed to be here by tomorrow, like Amazon says. But oh well, such is life.

Speaking of k-pop (am I on a rool or what?!?), Wonho released his new mini-album Blue Letter today and I love it! Like just look at the title track MV.

I mean, Wonho would totally be my high-school crush. Like he's so handsome and cute and sweet oh my gosh

Also, I have a Victorian tea party for English tomorrow since we finished reading The Importance of Being Earnest. My mum made apple scones! And I'm also bringing some of my truckload of tea. Speaking of which, today at lunch, my best friend and I watched an episode of The Golden Girls called "The Impotence of Being Earnest". Fitting puns!

Anyways, I urgently have other things to do like my human geo map, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!

Song of the day: The Ting Tings - Shut Up and Let Me Go

So I have way too much homework this weekend. Today I finished a bio Webquest and some precalc, and tomorrow I have some French, as well as a bit of studying and some other stuff. How do I do it?

Also, I'm rewatching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I already watched that series earlier this year (see some of my earlier blog posts) and loved it the first time, so I'm super excited to rewatch it!

Also, I've been looking for some healthy recipes recently. I've come to terms with the facts that I might be eating a few too many unhealthy foods, so I'm trying to eat at least a little bit healthier. However, most of the recipes I've found out are a crap ton of lettuce with some variation of chopped vegetables and maybe one chicken cube if you're lucky. There is only so much one can do with greem leaves!

Also, today I tried to get an old Vista VM working, but the Internet refused to work and VMWare Tools said it needed Windows 7. Ugh.

Anyways, that's all I have to talk about for now, so I guess I'll talk to y'all next time. Bye!
