I finished "Falling In Love With Natassia" by Anna Morando today!
One more book down! Next: "The Time Travelers Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger. :)

I'm so boring.

I got nothing to say.

Living life. At the moment.

Fuck drama. Fuck stress. Fuck pressure.

Just give me dreams.

Confession: I'm terribly afraid of thongs and panty shopping. Thongs seem painful and the panties seem worn.

Bookends and other books

Today I finished Bookends by Jane Green.

Its about a group of friends, as told by the narrator, Cath. Her and her amazing gay friend Simon, who goes by Si, go through love and sickness together, as Si gets diagnosed, and Cath tries to find true love. An old friend comes back to shake things up in their lives. Cath and her dear old friend's wife, who she grows closer to, take it upon their dream to open a book/cafe called "Bookends".
I loved how this book took place in London. I don't know why, but I learn more about this place I wish to visit someday. I also enjoyed how it expanded my imagination on leaving a job for pursuing a dream. I would highly recommend you all to read this novel, it took me about a week only because I was stuck in the middle of my exams lol. [Which I failed my stupid unrequired math class.]

So thanks to this book, I've read 1/15 books for this summer. Of course if I reach 15 before the deadline, I'll extend the goal. Duh.

Next on my list to read is Sundays at Tiffany by James Patterson.

I'm absolutely excited to read this because of its elegance and mystery. Its love and fantasy. Its about a lonely girl who has an imaginary friend, Michael, who accompanies her when she's gone. He's handsome, funny, and perfect. When she grows up a little, he leaves her, just as ours left us around the time of our preteens. And then, she meets him, the real Michael, years and years later. Just as handsome. Just as funny. Just as perfect. He doesn't even know why they've been reunited. Its a irresistable twisted love story about crossing boundries of love :)

After that, I'm planning to read either "Falling In Love with Natassia" by Anna Monardo, or "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger. Which should I read next?

Reading makes me feel like I'm on cloud nine.

School is over!

With exams and all this hectic last minute ambitions, I've been busy.
But I'm backkk.

I need to plan out my summer which ends on August 25, in writing. So here it is in a rough sketch.

  1. Sketching: I want to produce 10-15 new sketches by the end of summer. Simple. I want to see improvement.
  2. Dirac: I want to sew more and actually start a small business thanks to my mom's friends.
  3. Books: I want to read 15 new novels by the end of summer. And then write a minor review on what I thought. No in-depth, psychological, philisophical meanings, just simply the ups and downs of the book, whether I'd recommend them, and whether I'd read it again. Most likely I'll post them on here.
  4. Movies: I want to watch 25 movies by the end of summer. No review or anything, but I need to keep a log of them.
  5. Arabic: Once a week, a full days reading and writing.
  6. Qur'an: Finish a Juz. Juz 30.
  7. Learn some prayers to say before I do something, prayer worthy.
  8. Philsophy: Finish learning, take notes, atleast twice a week. Need to finish that darn book.
  9. Beading: Sell an hour or two's worth of jewlery at the flea market and see if I'm cut out to be a jeweler. First step: Buy equipment.
  10. Lacrosse: Play once a week.
  11. Exercise: Twice a week.
  12. Guitar: Learn 2 new songs, and play them perfectly by the time C gets back from California (late July).
This will obviously be continued...

This is the summer of 2010, you live it once, might as well make the most of it.
