Book Unhaul (2)

I actually unhauled these books last month, but things got busy, so I'm posting about it now, lol.

Most of these books I've had since junior year of high school, so for at least five or six years now. I figured that if I haven't read it already in that time period, then I'm never going to get around to reading it, no matter how awesome they sounded. However, I'm donating Raging Star because I didn't realize that I already had a copy, so I ended up buying another one a few months ago.

  • Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
  • Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld
  • The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen
  • Raging Star by Moira Young
  • Rampant by Diana Peterfreund
  • Ascendant by Diana Peterfreund
  • The Shifter by Janice Hardy
  • Bamboo People by Mitali Perkins
I donated these to my local library, so I hope that people are enjoying them. :)

Shows I'm Currently Watching: Into the Badlands, Fairy Tail (2014), My Hero Academia

I suddenly got really interested in watching anime again, lol. However, there's also one show that isn't anime that I really should have finished watching weeks ago...


I started watching this when it first was added onto Netflix last month because the main protagonist was Asian. Like, it's so hard to find tv shows in the U.S. with Asian representation in them--let alone as the main character! I was going to give that show a shot no matter what just for that reason alone. Plus, season one is only six episodes long, and season two just started airing. I thought that this would be a quick series to watch while I crammed for my accounting test and such, but things got busy with the wedding and classes, and I forgot about this show in between my sudden desire to watch anime, lol. Don't get me wrong, I do like the show though! I watched half of it already, and the plot is interesting enough to keep me hooked to figure out what's going to happen next.

I started watching the first season of Fairy Tail years ago, and out of nowhere, I suddenly wanted to finish watching this anime because I thought that it was completed already. (I was wrong; there's going to be another season sometime this Spring.) But yeah, I fell in love with the huge cast of crazy characters again, got completely immersed in the series, and am on the second season now. All of the arcs have been awesome, except for the filler arcs. They were really boring and undermined how powerful all of the characters became in the previous arcs. I'm currently at one of the filler arcs right now, and it's killing me because it's really not that interesting. I want to skip the episodes and go straight to the next main arc, but I don't like skipping episodes and missing information. :/

I watched season one when it was completed airing last year and loved it so much that I started reading the manga to see what happened next. I kind of stopped reading the manga for the past few months so that I could read the next arc all in one go, so I was happy to find out that season two of this anime came out two weeks ago, because this is a really good arc. There's a lot of character development and fighting scenes, and you get introduced to a lot of interesting new characters, too. There's only two episodes out, which sucks, because of all of the cliffhangers they end on. Even though I already know what's going to happen, I'm still impatient to watch the next episode because I want to see epic fight scenes, lol.


David wanted some white noise to take a nap to, so we chose an anime that we've both watched before. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't that tired to begin with and got immediately sucked into the anime again, just like the first time I watched it, lol. I forgot just how good it was but also how disjointed the first half of the anime was. I mean, it made sense since that arc spanned the length of two years inside the game. Regardless, it was a good anime to rewatch. I cam't wait to watch the movie that just came out once subs are available!

This anime was recently added onto Netflix a week or two ago, so David and I were happy to rewatch it once we found out about it, because it's a great anime. Lol, it's hilarious and ridiculous with great animation and action scenes. Season two is supposed to come out sometime this year, and I am so ready to watch it!

Wedding shenanigans are finally over!

The wedding is finally over! My sister got married on Sunday, and I'm still trying to recuperate from all that happened that weekend. I saw and interacted with so many people over the weekend that I don't want to see anyone for a while. I just want to be a bum and watch anime in bed forever, lol.

Don't get me wrong, this weekend was fun, but it was extremely tiring. There was the bachelorette party on Friday; mani-pedi, dress rehearsal, and dinner on Saturday; and the wedding and reception on Sunday. We stayed up late every day talking and doing stuff, and it was just so tiring after the first day.

I was supposed to take my managerial accounting test on Monday, but I asked my teacher to reschedule it to this Friday since I was going to be busy with all of the wedding stuff over the weekend. Now I'm stressing myself out because I haven't barely studied at all, and it's a lot of material to cover... -__-" I mean, I should have been studying even before this past weekend, but you know how it is.

I'll talk about the wedding later when I'm done with the test and the case study due next Monday! I really don't want to deal with school anymore though...

Book Unhaul (1)

I didn't know that book unhauls were a thing until I got into BookTube on YouTube and watched a whole of bunch of vloggers talk about all of the books that they were giving away or donating that they've lost interest in or did not like anymore. Unfortunately for me, I've been getting rid of books that I lost interest in reading or books that I did not want to keep any longer for the past year or two. It would definitely have helped me to keep track of what books I sold or donated so that I could remember if I still had the book or not, lol.

So here is my first book unhaul! I've been trying to whittle down my giant piles of TBR books for a while now, and I've realized that I am no longer interested in reading any of these books.

  • Spud by John van de Ruit
  • The Vast Fields of Ordinary by Nick Burd
  • A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn
  • Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez
  • The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie by Jaclyn Moriarty
  • The Ghosts of Ashbury High by Jacklyn Moriarty
  • The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin by Josh Berk
  • Wherever Nina Lies by Lynn Weingarten
  • The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause
  • Skinned by Robin Wasserman
  • Crashed by Robin Wasserman
I donated these books to my local library. It was really funny because one of the two donation mailboxes in front of the library were already full, and my boyfriend and I ended up jamming the other donation mailbox trying to put my books in it. We had to go inside and tell the librarians about it and give them the rest of my books. They seemed pretty excited that their donation box was full though. :)

February in Retrospect

February was a really busy month for me because of the endless amounts of homework I had due, the wedding shower I helped throw, and with me trying to make time to be a good friend. Probably due to all of the stress, I ended up binge-watching most of the DC's new 52 animated movies for the majority of this month and ended up procrastinating for the past week reading a bunch of manga series that I've been waiting to be finished for the past 5+ years.

One class almost down!

Spring Break starts next week, and I am READY. This month has been rough, especially the past two weeks where everything accumulated. This is because I'm taking an online class in addition to two at night classes at Mercer. The online class is only eight weeks long, so everything is condensed, which meant that I had a lot of homework due almost every week. 

Lol, the final project for this class was a marketing plan, which averaged to be around 15 pages based on the sample projects that he showed us in class. Instead of working on it slowly over the week, I basically spent an hour researching information the night before and writing the whole thing the next day. My paper was nine pages long. I'm not even aiming for an A anymore. -__-"

Now, I have to read the last six chapters of the textbook and take the final, and I'll finally be done with one of my classes! Does that mean that I'll use the extra time to actually do homework for my other classes once I'm done with this class? Probably not, lol. I'm terrible with time management. My motivation has really gone down since this semester started. 

But yeah, I'm really looking forward to Spring Break! We're planning a surprise birthday party this Friday night for Mikey because his birthday is next Sunday, so he'll never expect it, lol. He just thinks that we're all hanging out on Friday because we haven't had time to hang out as a group in a while. Lol, it's gonna be great. 

Ugh, I don't want to read six chapters though. I'm just procrastinating at this point, lol. Although there is this other manga series that I really do want to finish reading now that it's finally completed...

Dusty Reads: I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

Dusty Reads is a weekly post featuring a book that has been sitting unread on my home shelf for some time.

Title: I'll Give You the Sun
Author: Jandy Nelson
Pages: 371
Publication: September 16, 2014
Publisher: Dial Books
Summary taken from goodreads:
A brilliant, luminous story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, David Levithan, and Rainbow Rowell 
Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. 
Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah's story to tell. The later years are Jude's. What the twins don't realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.
This radiant novel from the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.
I remember reading and absolutely loving Jandy Nelson's first book, THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE not too long after it was released. It was so well-written, and I loved all of the characters. There was just a lot of emotions that came with this book, and it left with a one of the biggest book hangovers after I finished reading it, because it was so good.

Fast forward a few years, and I found out that she was releasing a new book, so of course I preordered it and waited months and months for it to come. Then, one day, it appeared in my mailbox and I was so excited to start reading. But then homework and tests and anime got in the way, and the book started getting so many awards and recognition... Now it's 2017 and I still haven't read it. -__-"

I will get around to reading this sometime this year! I must! I've only heard great things about this book, so I'll probably devour it as quickly as I devoured THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE once I actually start reading it.

I love my friends (because we are awful to each other)

Like, I cannot express how much I love my friends and how awesome and hilarious and ridiculous they all are. Whenever we hangout, especially in a big group, things are always crazy fun. Oh man, I still laugh when I think about all of the embarrassing things we did to Jerry last Friday night, lol.

Our group decided to go to Sushi Thai last Friday since Mikey got out of work later than expected, so we couldn't go to the new Indian place in Macon like we had originally planned. This was totally fine because we all were down for sushi and had a blast the last time we went to Sushi Thai the previous month. This time, we were surprised by how packed it was and by the lively atmosphere since there was a live singer performing at the open upstairs portion of the restaurant.

We had a cute waitress named Gwen, who graciously put up with our ridiculousness as we decided on what to order and made fun of each other. Most of the guys had ordered a beer, and things just got funnier afterwards when another waiter came by to deliver the drinks since Gwen wasn't old enough to do so.

Because it was so busy, we didn't get our food for a while (we didn't even get our soup or salads until most of the food started arriving!), which just meant that we roasted each other even more as we waited for everyone to get their food, lol. The best part was when Jerry said that he didn't want to touch his chopsticks because his hands were sticky, and I was just like "Yaoi hands" like it was the answer to everything, because we always joke about how big his hands are that they eclipse the sun, lmao. He made this face at me, which was when I realized that our waitress was still at our table talking to one of our friends, so I was trying to say sorry, but I had already taken a bite of my pad thai, so it was hard to say anything. Alec saw the whole exchange and started laughing, which made Harnish want to know what happened, so I had to explain yaoi hands to both him and Harrison, and the whole table died when they heard about what I just said about Jerry, lol.

During one of the times when Gwen stopped by our table, we told her about how Jerry was a Sheriff who had a reputation for slamming people in the jail, so she thought that we were talking about this when he threatened to give us his hands throughout the night whenever we picked on him. It wasn't until we were wrapping up and paying for our meals that Mikey spilled the beans and asked her if she knew what yaoi hands were, and she straight up ran into the nearest corner of the restaurant and laughed into her hands for the longest time! XD

The best part was probably right when we were about to leave, because Harnish had told Gwen that it was Jerry's birthday, and he wanted her to get as many workers as possible to sing happy birthday for him. Harrison heard his evil plan and went along with it after beating him up after she walked away, lol.

The thing is, apparently Harnish and Jerry were both in band together when we were all in high school together, and it was a band thing where they would all wish Jerry a happy birthday everyday. That's why when Harnish found out that Jerry was coming to eat dinner with us, he and Harrison started saying happy birthday to him, which annoyed him a lot, lol.

So when another waitress stopped by our table by the end of the night and asked us who the birthday boy was, we all paused for a second and immediately pointed towards Jerry because we are assholes, lololol. They then asked us who the birthday boy was, so we told them to sing to Jerbear instead of Jerry because that was his embarrassing nickname that Mikey told us when he first introduced him to us, lol.

We found out that our waitress actually sang opera from the waitress we had the last time we came to Sushi Thai, so while a group of workers sang happy birthday to Jerry, we would randomly hear Gwen singing in opera, which somehow made everything even more hilarious. And then, right when we were finally leaving our table, one of the waiters who sang happy birthday said, "I hope you have a happy birthday Jerbear!" We died laughing again, lol.

Lol, it sounds like we just embarrassed Jerry all night, but we all roasted each other throughout the night. David was acting really weird throughout the whole night, which was both amusing and odd, lol. Jerry's was just the most eventful and memorable though. Regardless, Harrison said that he's not friends with us anymore, lol. We're too embarrassing for him, lmao.

A smaller group of us went out to eat at Genghis Grill in Macon last night, which was fun. It was nowhere as embarrassing as it was last week though, lol. However, because Alec was still hungry, we ended up going to the Publix a couple of stores down from Genghis Grill and bought a pack of muffins and ended up huddled up on the only bunch outside of Publix and eating them in 50 degree weather as we talked and goofed off for a while.

I'm definitely glad that I've gotten closer to a lot of my friends that I've met or met again in college and that their friends that they brought along are also really cool and friendly.

Lol, we had originally planned on getting sushi together at least once a month, so I wonder what ridiculousness we'll have in store for March.

(Also, we plan on going out to eat in a big group with Jerry again and telling every place we go to that it's his birthday, because we love him so much, lol.)

Cover Lover 48

Ugh, there's so much homework I need to do before I go to class next week. I've got to answer this week's discussion post, answer the case study questions, read the court cases, catch up on my textbooks reading, and catch up on my other required book reading because I have to write a paper on it in two weeks. Not to mention, I have my first accounting test today and need to take my midterm for my online class sometime this week. And I'm hosting my sister's wedding shower on Sunday. D:

Why do I do this to myself? I had more then enough time to get caught up with my homework this past month! What did I do instead? Read fanfics! Ugh.

On another note, check out these cool covers. I think most of these came out last year, but I'm still in love with them.

  • Glitches by Marissa Meyer

I watched:
  • Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods (2013)

My only free weekend and I'm still doing homework last minute

The past couple of weekends have been busy because I've been hanging out with friends or doing wedding stuff with my sis and her fiance. This is the only weekend for next month or two where I am free to do whatever I want before being bogged down with case studies and exams, and instead of catching up on homework like I should, since I've been slacking off because of everything happening over the weekends, what am I doing? Everything but homework, lol.

I finished watching the second season of Voltron: Legendary Defender, and it was so good. The first season really set up the plot and showcased the characters and their difficulties getting along, and it was great. It had just the right amount of humor, action, suspense, and a cliffhanger that left you burning for more. Overall, a great introductory season for a reboot.

The second season was even better. It was darker, more mature as the characters learned from the consequences of their failed plan and realized just how tough their enemy is. There was a lot of plot and backstory for some of the characters, which was great (I ship Klance as much as the next fan, but I am not opposed to Sheith anymore at this point), but I wished that there was more characterization for some of the other characters as well. The action was even more intense, and the comedy was still hilarious and amusing. Pretty much, I didn't want the season to end, because that just meant waiting even longer for the next season to come out. Plus, that cliffhanger! UGH. Why you gotta do that???

I pretty much started reading Voltron fanfics right after I finished the series, because I needed some happy fluffy fics where everything was fine (or was going to be fine, lol). That's why, instead of catching up on lots of reading for classes, I ended up reading 60k fanfics, lol.

I don't know why I do these things to myself. I'm just screwing myself over in the long run. -__-" At least I finished the discussion post for my online class an hour ago. Not like it's due tomorrow or something, lol.

Back to the grind...

School started back again earlier this week. I have night classes on Monday and Tuesday and an online class that I haven't really checked up on yet. It's so sad that I'm already slacking off. -__-" I just want to graduate already. 

I've already almost fallen asleep in both of my classes already, lol. 

Plus, the next few months are going to be stressful because Shelle and Kyle's wedding is in March, and there's so much to do if you're in the wedding party. I'm also helping host the wedding shower, so that's been a headache because of Kyle's dad and stepmom being so fucking difficult. 

Now I've got to worry about finding good wedding shower invitations and how to print them cheaply since I'm just a poor college student. 

We've been working out extra hard this week, and it really shows. We did 236 pushups on Monday, 420 jump squats on Tuesday, 170 bicep curls and 170 tricep extensions yesterday, and 240 burpees today along with warmup exercises and challenges after all of these main workouts. Tomorrow is leg day again, so I'm not sure what we're doing yet. All I know is that my legs are still recovering from Tuesday's jump squats. D:

Since school just started though, I've been hanging out with David a lot since we have a lot of free time. Obviously that's going to change soon once we both get swamped down with homework and tests, but it's nice to just chill together in bed. Naps with the bae is the best!

I found out that Shanice is planning on moving to Atlanta next week, so we're trying to get together one last down here tomorrow night so that before she leaves. I haven't seen her in months! I meant to reach out to her for the past couple of weeks during the break, but I kept on forgetting, and so many plans kept on popping up. Now I feel bad for not hanging out with her especially because she couldn't go on the cruise with us last month. :/

But yeah, that's what's been up lately. I want to watch so many shows and read so many books and fanfics before school gets really busy, so I feel like I don't remember to blog as much anymore, lol. I'll try to do better. :)

December in Retrospect

I managed to read a lot last month! Most of the books I read were ebooks, which makes me a little sad because I've been trying to read all of my physical books for the past few years. At least I'm reading, right?

I read:
  • Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter
  • Introductions by C.L. Stone
  • First Days by C.L. Stone
  • Meeting Sang: Kota by C.L. Stone
  • Friends vs. Family by C.L. Stone
  • Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
  • Forgiveness and Permission by C.L. Stone

I watched:
  • Moana (2016)
  • Bromance (2015)
  • Moana (2016) [rewatch]
