It's October.

So... it's definitely October now, and it has definitely been a very long time since I last wrote. I'm sorry for that, really, but I've been insanely busy since the skating season started and my new schedule is allll over the place. I really have no idea what day it is half the time.
Yesterday, Friday, I thought it was Monday for the majority of the day, so it's a good thing that my Friday and Monday schedules are almost identical.. at least I go to the same rink on those days so I didn't end up in the completely wrong place.
I'm in the middle of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. So far I really like it, though everyone tells me they get better as they go on because the first three books are more "young" feeling and the later ones get more intense. I'm excited to read them all. It helps when I listen to The Parselmouths & The Moaning Myrtles in my car on repeat.
Yesterday I bought Fire by Kristin Cashore, which is in the same sort of world as Graceling but at a different time and in a different kingdom, or something to that affect. I can't wait to read it, so it's motivating me to get HP Book 1 finished quicker. I also got Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld, Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan, and Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr. My plan is to read a Harry Potter book, then a non-HP book, and so on and so on, until I am done with Book 7. I am going to try to watch the corresponding movies after each book (at least, for the ones that are out). I think it's a good plan.
In other news, there is going to be some family stuff going on for a bit, so I'm not sure how frequently or cheerily this will be updated over the next month or so. I'll definitely write when I finish books, but possibly not during the in-between time. We'll see.
