Of course, at the end of the first week of the Fall semester, I am sick. Rather dreadfully so- I am not usually the kind of person to be sick. Illness of any kind does not become me. And so, I lie here in my little warm and quiet room watching The Great British Baking Show, sipping Gatorade, and thinking about how handsome Paul Hollywood is. Oh- and maybe some reading. If I can tear my eyes away from Black Forest Gateau for a quick minute.
In August, I managed to read nine books. I was aiming for ten, but the new semester quickly derailed me from my plans. I enjoyed East of Eden the most, followed by Far From the Madding Crowd and Swan. I reviewed Blackberry Wine, Swan, and The Phantom of the Opera this past month. Other books that I read were The Four Agreements, The Things They Carried, The Sea, and In the Clearing. While I did read some of them out of duty to my Currently Reading list, others I whipped through from sheer enjoyment.
Star Trek: Voyager was my most watched show in August. I love all things Star Trek, and I hope to finish the series in September. Then I will move on to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. My favorite character on Voyager really is a three-way tie between Commander Chakotay, Ensign Harry Kim, and Lieutenant Tuvok. This trailer I found on Youtube really is nothing like the actual show- but it is full of 90s tackiness that I can’t help but love.
I have two goals for September: read at least five books, and finish one of my WIP projects. I have several books on my Currently Reading shelf that I could finish in a few days, and then two projects that I could finish within hours. Now, if my body would cooperate…
