College is Killing Me and my Writing

Well, not really my writing. All the writing I've done since I moved to Jersey has been pretty good. I actually haven't deleted anything that I've written - just edited it, which is a first for me. I've even started the sequel to STA (before I moved, I sort of deleted it because I hated what I had).

The only problem is that I don't have enough time to write. Or to have a social life. Or to read. Or to blog. Or to do anything that doesn't involve homework. I'm taking this French class on France in the 18th century and we're reading a new French novel every week. It's tiring and boring. I fall asleep every time I pick up the book. And the books are full of satire that I don't even understand. Sighs.

But - there's always a but with me :P - college is actually pretty good. I'm actually learning so much. I know - I'm in college, of course I should be learning new stuff but somehow, a part of me was sort of expecting it to be like high school. I felt like high school was a waste of time. I don't think I learned much there. And all this knowledge that I'm getting here, I'm using it in my books and it makes me feel so smart sometimes xD Ever feel that way? You learn something new and you just have to include it in one of your books? I've got all this philosophy knowledge in my head right now and I'm just waiting for the perfect idea to come along to include it in. Problem is, I've already got close to a gazillion ideas that are already on hold -_-

My Online Shopping Spree

After the dozens of blog posts I've read about Anna and the French Kiss, I've decided to buy it. Let's see if it's as amazing as everyone says it is :P

And there was such a great discount for it on Amazon that I couldn't not get it. It was $6.80 for a hardcover copy of it. Plus, I have this one-month free trial of the Prime Amazon card (or whatever it's called). Basically, I'm getting free shipping for a month, whether or not my purchase is over $25. So I'm totally taking advantage of that xD

I also ordered The Power of Six, which is the sequel to I Am Number Four. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint. Plus, I ordered the seventh book in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost (One Grave at a Time).

But meh. I haven't even had time to read Richelle Mead's Bloodlines yet, so I have no clue when I'll have time to read all those books I'm ordering.
