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. :)

Things to Do Over Spring Break

This week is Spring Break, and I have a lot of things to do! Just like last year, I'm going to write up a list in the hopes that you will help hold me accountable for completing them all. I've got a midterm for my business law class when I come back next week, so I need to spend a lot of time reviewing everything we've discussed in class this break in addition to doing a lot of chores and errands.
  • Check graduation audit
  • Order cap and gown
  • Plan bachelorette party 
  • Update driver's license
  • Wash sheets and comforter
  • Donate books to library
  • Finish reading Shell book for class
  • Review case studies
  • Go over study guide
  • Read assigned readings
  • Set up voicemail
  • Clean room
  • Get dress altered
  • Vacuum room
Hopefully I will finish everything on this list because they're all kind of important, lol.

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.
