This week was a three day week in the sense that I only went to school for three days. It was pretty awesome, but surprisingly, I didn't really notice much of a difference.
Sophie's World is not a very readable book. It is extremely academic thus far and when I read it, I feel like I'm in philosophy class. (I'm not joking- this is exactly what we did in philosophy.) It's nice to learn something, but suspending my disbelief in letters and how easily they force Sophie to look at the world without considering the plot is not very exciting. Hopefully, it picks up.
On the Blog
We started with my review of Tandem, which I think showed a lot of promise.
Mari featured Snow Like Ashes for her WoW, and I'm definitely looking forward to that one too!
Then, we picked our favourite friendships in books.
Mari then did what I love to do, which is connect a song to YA in some way! Check out Come Back Home: On Dystopias and Technology.
Finally, my review for Mistress of Rome went up. I didn't enjoy it as much as Mari, but it's nice to diversify your reading selection.
The Week That Was
This was a fairly significant week because on Friday, I went to visit my first choice university. I've gotten accepted, and this was all about seeing the campus and getting a feel for the vibe. To be honest, I was terrified for this experience. Moving to a different city is so exciting, but I was scared I'd visit the campus and be like, "Nope, I hate it."
I really did like it, and now I guess it's the fun part of the university process. I've done so much paperwork, and there's so much left to do, but now I can really actually imagine myself in Montreal. I think another fun part was actually speaking to some faculty advisers, and one of which told me (very kindly) that I didn't need to worry so much, and that everything would work out. That seems really lame because everyone has been telling me that, but it's nice to hear from someone that actually knows the program and that listened to what my plan for the future was.
I'm just really relieved right now that the choice I made is starting to appear to be the right one for me. I convinced my mom, at least. ;)
Song of the Week
How do I top my song from last week? Well, this week, my choice is very different from other weeks. I love how atmospheric this song is. I love the kind of mood Lana Del Rey's songs always have, and so this song is curiously fun to listen to. It's very nice to listen to. Here is West Coast by Lana Del Rey although everyone knows the east coast is the best coast ;)
