So, is Julia dead or what?!?
Nope! I'm glad to report she's thankfully not. She's a bit scuffed and bruised from getting caught in an onslaught of schoolwork, but other than that - perfectly fine. (As fine as a junior in high school can be, anyway.)

So, hey everyone! How's life going? Good? Great? Wonderfully? Glad to hear it. It's finally October and that means the holidays are speedily approaching. Everyone says it, but I'll have to join the chorus: I cannot believe it. The year is passing oh so very quickly.
Living life day by day seems long and slow, but when taken a step back from, it's pretty fast.
Since we're all extremely busy during this time of year (me included), I thought I'd make a brief update post about what's going on in my life.
Firstly, I'll repeat it again: I'm very much not dead. I apologize for the embarrassing deficit of posts, but school calls! Unfortunately, I just don't have a lot of free time on my hands. I would love to read more, but I can only manage to indulge myself on the weekends.
I'm currently reading Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I picked up this bad boy of a book on its Tuesday release day, but I was not able to begin reading until yesterday evening. I'm only around page 70, so I haven't formed much of an opinion yet. However, I'm excited to continue on with the story. (I've only heard amazing feedback on this book!) My co-blogger Rachel over at APCB wrote an awesome review here, which basically persuaded me to purchase a copy.
I plan on finishing Six of Crows sometime this week, so pray with me for a lighter homework load and look forward to a review!
• I made a Goodreads account!
I honestly have no idea how to use it and I'm clueless as to what I'm doing half the time, but . . . still. Feel free to friend me. Click here.
• NaNoWriMo? Maybe?
It's no secret that I love to read, but I also love to write. Okay, so maybe I have a hard time sticking to stories I start. Maybe I hardly finish anything . . . but I want to change that. I suppose I just become easily bored and easily distracted. NaNoWriMo sounds like a great way to get myself motivated and writing. I honestly don't think it's feasible to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days while I'm in school, but maybe I'll still join in on all the angst in November to at least try. It's worth a shot, right? Has anyone attempted (or won) NaNo? If so, I applaud you.
• You're all awesome.
(This isn't really news, though. I think you knew that.)
Well . . . see you. And thank you, if you actually read this jumbled mess of a post. :-)
