LOOK AT US! THIS IS THE 52ND MMN MEANING WE’VE DON’E A WHOLE YEAR’S WORTH OF ‘EM! Whoot 😀
It’s been a quiet week on the blog, and will be a bit like this for a while but don’t worry, we’ll get a little more organised in a few weeks to come! Anyhoo, something REALLY AWESOME happened and I cannot tell you guys until I come back from school tomorrow but yes, stay tuned. 😉 It has something to do with going somewhere next year.
I had NAPLAN this week, which is like an examination all Aussies in Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 have to do. It’s a pretty easy test but I am prone to stupid mistakes and already know I made one in the numeracy calculator. *bats eyelashes*
Well, this was a bit of a strange week. Monday, I enjoyed my last day in Rome, which was awesome. Sun! Warmth! Gelato! Tuesday was travel-day. We got up way too early in the morning, took the bus to the airport, flew to Germany and took a bus to the Netherlands. That was less awesome. Cold! Clouds! Rain! Wednesday, we had the day off to recover from Rome, so obviously I planned to sleep in till at least 11 am. So of course I woke up at 7 am. Brain, what did you do to me?! Either way, Thursday and Friday meant back to school ;_; Though nobody got much work done because everyone kept asking us about Rome 😛 I’m not really looking forward to next week, though… They decided to bombard us with homework and tests and presentations, so you guys probably won’t hear a lot from me next week!
I’m still in Vegas as I type this haha. It’s been really nice and hot here! I actually have quite a nice tan going on. I’ve spent my time primarily by the lazy river and walking around the strip. I also got see a few shows which were cool. OH, AND I JUMPED OFF THE 108TH FLOOR OF THE STRATOSPHERE. It was like a bungee jump thing. Google the ‘Las Vegas Skyjump’ and you’ll see how crazy it was. I was a little nervous beforehand but the actual jump was actually really cool 😀
However tomorrow I’ll be packing up for the loooooong car ride home. I’m really not looking forward to coming home. I get back on Monday and then the next day have school and work. I’m going to be even more of a zombie then usual. Hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of things though, catch up on missed school work and exams (my physics final :o) and commenting on blogs regularly as I miss everyone.
Once I finish typing this I’m going out shopping. Hopefully I can find some cute things and something to get my best friend back home 🙂

Celine’s Book of the Week
First of all: look at that GORGEOUS cover! This book sounds so good: it has a LGBT romance, it’s set in LA, it has a lot of film things and the reviews have been really good. I really can’t wait to read this!

Cracked: Haven’t heard of this one before but I might read it some time in the far future.
Chasing Stars: Rather surprised that this showed up in the mail after I sent a 1.5 star review to the publisher for After Eden. Oh well, not reading this anyway.
The Minnow: Probably the prettiest title I got this week! This won the 2013 Text Prize so I expect brilliant things.
