This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase our latest hauls and what’s been going on in our lives.
I’ve spent about 80% of my week in bed being incredibly sick, so you could say I’ve had a crappy week. I’ve come down with some kind of virus which I also passed onto my mum (sorry, mum!) and man, it is just so bad. I’ve got a blocked and runny nose, hella sore throat, fever and throbbing headache. On the plus side, I watched a bunch of chick flicks on Netflix and finished another season of Suits while lounging around in bed. CAN I JUST SAY THAT I SHIP DONNA/HARVEY AND RACHEL/MIKE REALLY, REALLY HARD? I’m starting to like the show more and more and I cannot wait to see what Season 3 brings.
Of course, later today I am going to start freaking out about all the work I’ve missed over the past week and am going to wonder how on earth I’m going to get my life back on track. But let’s do stress about that later, right? RIGHT?! *panics slightly at the thought of all the work*
Also, I’ve started decided to start using my Goodreads account a little more again. I’ve been a bit lazy over the past two months and didn’t update it so if you’re my friend/follower on there, expect a whole slew of reviews from me on there, heh.
Wooooo! It’s the long weekend right now for me and that’s just giving me time to actually have a social life again. And just plan my life really. Today I spent the day registering for university courses, both my fall and winter semesters. I’m taking my required Law & Society courses, Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology, Mircoecomics, Political Science, English, Greek Mythology and Geology. Ahhhh. Gonna be so much work but I’m beyond excited.
Tomorrow (Saturday) I’m heading to a Trampoline Park! I think it’s just not my city that has this?? But basically think of an huge gym that just has a bunch of trampolines connected together. Activities at this place include dodgeball, vertical vollyeball, basketball…etc. Now this place offers these activities in the normal lighting but also in the dark complete with glow in the dark paint. So excited. On Sunday I’m going out with my best friend. Wine & cheese night while crying over boys. Fun stuff.
Monday, I’m seeing yet another movie. Pitch Perfect 2. Ehhh, I know I should be excited as I loved the first one but right now I’m just not. It seems like a complete re-hash of the first movie. Who knows though, Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are awesome so maybe I’ll be surprised. Other movies I’ve seen recently are Age of Ultron and The Age of Adaline. I actually quite enjoyed Age of Ultron (a lot more than anticipated) and am so excited for Civil War. BUT OH MY GOD AGE OF ADALINE GUYS. I cried. It was so cute and well done in my opinion. I’d give it all of the stars.
ALSO. I’m graduating on May 28th. Oh my god, I can’t believe I’m going to be done highschool. It’s also the date of my prom. I’m so excited to wear my red dress and just dance the night away. It’s going to be so much fun. And after the prom me and my friends are definitely going to hit up this milkshake place next to the school. Naturally.

Those Girls: Back stabbing girls… this could go very well!
