Book + Movie Review: The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

February 24, 2016

The Outsiders
Author: S.E. Hinton
Genre: YA Fiction
Ponyboy can count on his brothers and his friends, but not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids who get away with everything, including beating up greasers like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect--until the night someone takes things too far.

Written forty-five years ago, S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was written.

Julia's Life Updates: January & February

February 9, 2016
Hi there!

So as you can tell, my New Year's Resolutions aren't going too wonderfully.  (*cough, cough* post more often...)

I swear I have good excuses this time, haha.  So for this first post in a long, long while, I thought I'd show you all what I've been up to these past couple of months!  Here goes:

Second Semester started off for me, and that means all new teachers, all new classes, all new lessons and homework.  This semester I'm particularly excited to be taking a YA Literature class and an Astronomy class.

For Astronomy, our first project has been keeping a Moon Journal.  We've been tasked with watching the moon over a course of a month through its phases, and reporting on its nightly position and shape among the stars via short video logs.  I'm an absolutely terrible astrophotographer, so no photo.  Sorry to disappoint. ;-)
