Behind the Books (2)

It's back! Time for us(me?) to talk about some personal stuff so you guys know what's going on in life even if you don't follow me or Lanna on twitter.

1.) On Thursday, I had my prom.

I went with a bunch of friends and their dates and it wasn't anything like people tell you your prom will be. I mean...I guess it was fun to an extent, but our DJ sucked so it was hard to really get into dancing and the food sucked because we had no choices.

After prom, my friends and I went to a nearby diner and had a blast. We ate really good bad-for-you food and had a very attractive waiter named Ken and it was awesome. We then came back to my house and some swam in the pool, but mostly we sat around and chatted.

2.) Then on Friday...I graduated from high school.

You can't see it here, but I'm also wearing 4 medals and a necklace. I kind of felt like a rapper.


600 caps flying in the air...hopefully tassel-less.

It was over 90 degrees and super humid (thunderstorms started 15 or 20 minutes after this picture was taken, to give you an idea). There was no A.C. and some people were there for hours to beat the crowd. The ceremony itself was almost exactly an hour long, yet a number of people passed out before it ended.

3.) Then yesterday, I had my graduation party. Just some family and family friends since the few friends I invited couldn't make it for various reasons. But it was fun and a gorgeous day and I got a crapload of money so...not complaining.

4.) Fun Fact: Last month I started working as C.J. Redwine's (author of the upcoming Defiance) assistant/intern. So, I've been handling some publicity stuff and various blog tours and what not. I love doing it and I'll be very happy when I can get back to work today/tomorrow after a rather hectic few days. So if you ever wonder why I talk about Defiance a lot or RT a lot of C.J.'s posts on twitter or what I'm talking about when I bring up work...this is what I mean.

5.) If you haven't been watching the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, you should be. It's kind of the best thing ever. I'd embed a video so you could try it here, but views with embedded videos don't really seem to count, so I'd rather just link you and make sure you can watch them all and what not.

6.) I'm not providing links here either since this is on iTunes, but one of my favorite musical groups is Room for Two. The problem is, until fairly recently they only had one song. Well, earlier this year, they released a second song and next month, they're releasing an entire CD. I strongly encourage you guys to go listen to the songs they have and see if you like them.

Annnnnnnd that's it for me. Until next time!

  3. I agree with Kailia - you look gorgeous in your prom dress! Congrats on graduating!

    Also, love the Lizzie Bennet diaries - I'm pretty much addicted to it. Who knew a vlog version of P&P could be so good?

  4. You definitely look great in the dress. I love it and it suits you perfectly. Great choice!! Congrats on graduating, are you going to college next or just focusing on your position working for that author? (Which is awesome, btw)

    How did you get that job? I'm curious and I'm sure many people would love to do that, or something like it, and don't know when to start.

    Have a great week!

    1. Definitely going on to college. I can do my job anywhere and it's unpaid.

      I've had some similar jobs before this and all I did was put out the offer on twitter. In this case, C.J. and I are friends and she asked me if I'd be up for it.
