The taste is horrendous in my opinion.
Happy Last Week of School! My friend Maddison @ The Madd Reads Books has officially joined the book blogging world - NOT the real life one - through the tumbling tumbles of Tumblr. ^_^

Speaking of newish blogs, I was helping Lupe coming up with a blog name. Then Kahlan combined two of my ideas. Never ask me to come up with names on the spot. I'm terrible at it. Unless I have inspiration. Then I might be bouncing all over the place. "Ooo, this one! No, this one! Wait... this one's better!" It's bound to be a disaster. Really, it was. Actually, in this case it wasn't. Facebook tends to prevent disaster from happening, despite the fact it's making you pay for page promotion (pfft!).

I got a ball from the county library. It's probably a complete insult to teenagers since it's called a "color- changing stress ball." Basically it's saying, "Hey, kid, we think you have a lot of stress. Here's a ball. Catch." Kahlan told me to squeeze the ball until it explodes and demand another one.

I suppose stress is true. If you're about to start Finals. Pooh. Apparently that also means my inbox will pile up over the entire summer since I won't be able to go to the library often... -_-

How are you guys this week? Anything interesting I should be aware of? ANYTHING?!?!?!? And please, don't mention Finals. Unless you're taking it yourself as well. Hopefully the odds will be ever in your favor.

    • Well, Lupe's a bit right. I pretty much DNFed the book within an hour - I tend to read faster now - because it was boring. She didn't have any influence (aside from warning me). I have my own reasons why.
