Hey there, 2015!

I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve and New Year Day! :) I spent it how I normally do, with Andrew and friends and family. We made Frido Pizzas (essentially fried bread dough, with pizza toppings on top of that, and sauce last. SO GOOD.) and had toasted ravioli, little smokies, and of course Christmas cookies. I made a fruit pizza – which I wish I would have taken a picture of because it was so pretty and some chocolate covered strawberries, which weren’t so pretty but so delicious.

In other words, we stuffed ourselves happy. :)

New Year’s Day is also my mom’s birthday, so at midnight I wished her a happy birthday and gave her her birthday present. I usually get her a gift certificate to a local pizza place that she loves, and I also printed some of our engagement photos off and framed them for her.

I normally don’t make any resolutions on New Year’s and I suppose this year is no different. I always challenge myself to read 52 books in a year, which I track on Goodreads, so I plan on trying to get a head start on that before classes resume again. I read 50 in 2014, which I think is still commendable despite being two books shorts of my goal. Overall, a good year in reading! Here’s to another! :)

I’ve happily read three books, so far: The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Young Elites, and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. I absolutely loved the first two, and the last was more of just an entertaining read. I would highly recommend the first two (and heck, the last one as well)!

I’m going back to school in about a week and a half so I’m trying to get as much wedding stuff done before then as I can. I’m a little overwhelmed at the moment for the amount I still need to do (and the small amount of time I have left to do it) and finances. I’ve added up everything I still need to pay for and that figure is very intimidating compared to how much I make at my small, part-time job. I had a good cry about it with my mom, who’s really good about telling me to suck it up because God’s gonna work everything out. But I do feel a bit better about it now, and I’m going to try to enjoy this time as much I can and as much as I should!! Expect a blog post later about it. :)

I am looking forward to a great 2015!!

  1. Even though you were short by 2 books, 50 is a pretty good number. Best of luck reaching the 52-book mark! Of course, you’re already off to a good start by the mere fact that you got 3 out of the way within week one. Granted, that does give you leeway since you probably won’t have as much time during midterms/finals week. Speaking of school, it starts for me next Monday. I’m looking forward to seeing some old faces again, which is nice. Here is to a strong semester [or quarter, trimester, whatever your school operatest under]!

  2. 50 books in one year is still a good number. Heck, any amount of books read is still awesome! I know people that don’t even read, and it’s sad!

    You’re off to a great start for the new year. I don’t know how you can manage school and reading pleasure. Honestly, I miss reading. I miss it so much. But I know that in the end and once school is completed and I have that degree in hand, I will be able to read as many books as I want. Some of my friends on Facebook are authors and they understand that school comes first before pleasure. So, I’m glad that they’re not mad at me for being unable to read their books right away. They are awesome!

    Speaking of college, it starts for me on the 20th, and I can’t wait. I’m so bored at home with nothing to do except studying and reading some books like Bill Nye the Science guy’s book, and a little bit of Stephen King. Of course, there are other books that I want to read, but all in due time. I’ve been studying the heck out of math, and speaking of which, I need to get back into it. I only have two weeks to complete this book I have before going into my math class.
