Battle your way through my wordy post!

It's a chilly Saturday morning, the sun is shining but the wind is whipping around. I realise it's all my fault because I only have summer clothes in my wardrobe but can I please catch a break?! I'm tired of being cold!!!!!

I'm not feeling too sick anymore but I would like to not be doing any school work. I wish I could just sit and do nothing, lie on the sofa watching a movie. Although I only recently realised that next week is my holidays! So this time next week, I will be on holidays!!!!!!! Yay!! That's some good news right there. But... I have promised myself that I will spend a large amount of time doing school work so I don't die next term because we have so much stuff due in October!

Tonight I'm going to a comedy show with a bunch of friends and before that we're heading to a dessert restaurant. This was actually one of my things on my '101 in 1001' list and it's funny that without any planning on my behalf, I am going to get to cross this one off my list :)

Also tonight we will be snapping pictures of me to use as my FB profile picture. I think I've had the same one for about half the year! I mean, it is of me and Helo from 'Battlestar Galactica' so it's pretty darn cool but I think it's time to move on. Time to shake things up but I usually don't go out or do anything that involves having your picture taken so tonight we will be rectifying this with lots of pictures being taken. And hopefully one will look ok and I can use that as a profile pic!

And in other news, I also won my first ever blog giveaway! Yay!! I won an e-book by the lovely Dina Sleiman over at Inkwell Inspirations. I absolutely love Dina's posts and I look forward to reading her book. Just something else to do instead of doing my assignments!

Also, as a form of procrastination I have been researching e-readers that I can get as a birthday present. My birthday is over two months away and normally I don't care about presents but I thought this year I will be proactive and have a list because according to my mother, I am a hard person to buy presents for. Also this year I will be having a birthday party! Apparently 26 is a big year for me! Anyway, my research leads me to a Kindle. Any thoughts? Does anyone have an e-reader?

How was the comedy show?! I used to be part of an Improvisational Theatre troupe and it was sooo fun. Hope the pictures turned out well!

Also yes, I think I am the American version of you. That being the case, if you ever come to America you know you have a place to stay!

Kindle. Kindle. Kindle. Nothing else to get, but a kindle...why you ask?? Because it's just like a book. It doesn't have the bells and whistles like the Nook but the Nook isn't an e-reader! The kindle is meant to be just like a book. Where you can read and read and never strain your eyes on the screen. It doesn't glare, its light and functional and its awesome. I love mine and when I start thinking I'm missing out because I don't have the fancy shmancy Nook, I remember that the kindle is awesome because it's JUST. LIKE. A BOOK! (and end my crazy moment, haha)

You better be posting those FB approved pictures on the blog! Stay warm, and yay for your upcoming holidays!!
