Where Am I?


Where am I?

Well if you're reading this before 7 AM Central time today, then I'm probably still in Minnesota. And if you're reading this post anywhere between 9:15 AM (central) and 11:20 AM (pacific) then I will be flying from Minneapolis to San Fransisco! And if you're reading this post from 11:20 AM (pacific) then I am definitely in California by now.

How exciting is this? Very much exciting. Did you remember my post about what I am going to do this summer in March? If not, then you should probably read this post first.

Before I say stuff. I just want to say how much of a hectic week it's been. Monday was Memorial Day and no school. Tuesday I had to finish all of my finals in all of my classes. Wednesday I had to wake up at 4 AM and drive 6 hours to Minneapolis to go on my class trip to an Amusement park and get back at around midnight. On Thursday (yesterday) it was my last day of school and I had to turn in all of my textbooks and everything. Then I had to finish packing while being exhausted. Then I had to get up at 4 AM again to get ready for the plane and by there at the latest by 6 AM since my plane leaves at 7 AM. So yes. Pretty hectic.

And before I continue I just want to say that I am writing this post up on Wednesday, May 20th, so most of those are assumptions of what is really going to happen.

So, now. I just want to say something exciting I am going to do this summer and some things to be aware of on the blog.

First of all. There will be changes. I will still post at the very least once a week because I have all my WoW posts scheduled from now until the week after I get back for CA. I hope to be able to keep up with reviews and IMM and OTO good, but I honestly don't know how I am going to do everything.

The first three weeks, from now until June 21, my grandma has off so I will probably be a ton busy doing stuff with her, like traveling to LA, going to the beach, among others things. So I really just don't know how I will be able to keep up with everything. By the last week of school, when my grandma goes back to work it will cool down a lot. I will be working with my grandpa on doing stuff with him still though.

I will try my very hardest to keep up with everything, but don't take my word on it just yet.

Now, I have some freaking ecstatic news that I am finally happy to share with you. I haven't found the perfect time to share it yet, so I will do so now. It has to do with what I am going to do while in CA.

Well, I am going to see an author. A very amazing and talented and popular author on June 19th at 3:00 PM in La Verne, CA. Up, the very amazing Sarah Dessen. Who is like my favorite author. Amazing isn't it? She will even be my first author signing! Yippee! And there is more! I will be able to go to it with my awesome blogger friend Khy! How amazing isn't it? I am so very freaking excited you have no idea.

I also plan to go to a ton of museums. My grandma really wants to go to a few and so do I! If you know any great museums in the LA area or somewhere else in CA please tell me so I can go!

Oh, and I will be able to go to an actual real live BOOKSTORE! I haven't been in a real live three-dimensional bookstore in like two years. So this is so amazing. I plan to buy a ton of books. Some are Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott (Yes! I haven't read them yet!), Wherever Nina Lies by Lynn Weingarten, Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog, Nothing But Ghosts by Beth Kephart and a ton, ton more! I can't wait until I get to actually be in a bookstore again. I think I might make my grandma take me to one ASAP! :)

So that's it! I'll try my best to keep up! If you are waiting for an email reply hopefully you know why I haven't gotten back to you so quickly, but I will!

Thanks everyone! And wish me luck on traveling alone!

  2. Welcome to California! While you are in SF you should definitely check out the CA Academy of Sciences. I loved the old one and really want to check out the new digs. Hope you enjoy your time here. I really need to go make a trip down to LA. Seems like more bookish stuff goes on down there.
