I made an account for my adoptables to be posted there since I think you guys may tire from them being posted here.
The account is ~Hardrockangel-Adopts and will have the same avatar as my main account for now. My adoptables will be posted there now (including thse I already have in my gallery, so before anyone thinks it's an art thief I just wanted to make sure it's my account.
First of all: EEK EXAMS ARE ON THEIR WAY!
Secondly: But so is Christmas!
I will be a bit less active during my exam period since I have to study, but I'll make sure to pop in from time to time. As for how my exam-preparations are going so far, I'd say splendid. I passed the mock-exams with flying colours and finally feel like I *get* the matter. I've also been going to seminars to help deal with anxiety for failure and extreme stress, so I should be able to survive the exam-period in one piece this year. As for Christmas-plans, I don't have any besides "spend even more time with the family".
I do look forward to the Holiday though. Some of you may already know this, but I am a big Christmas-junkie.
I love how everything becomes cozy and warm and fuzzy.
I love the Christmas-markets and spending more time with my family.
I love being able to unwind in front of the fire place in my great-aunt's house.
I love how it will snow and I can be inside, huddling in a blanket with a mug of tea and a great book.
I just love winter and the Holidays in general.
Speaking of great books: I recently got my hands on discounted copies of The Hunger Games and the first book in the series of Game of Thrones.
That is all I have to say. *j/k*
Seriously though, I think I read through all four in little under two weeks (finishing the Hunger games in three days and nights -- couldn't sleep!) and I'm blown away. I'd been recommended the books many times now, but never really got around to reading them. now that I did, I think I finally truly understand the hype surrounding them.
First of all: Game of Thrones: I follow the series, but the books are even better. More details, even more storylines (even more of Joffrey being a little prick) and so forth. All in all: I want the other books too now, but I can't since exams. Poo. :C
The Hunger Games: I was blown away. The book was gruesome without being pure horror, the story was amazing and I truly felt sad when I finished the last book.
I was iffy since the cover had a big bold recommendation stamp from Stephenie Meyer, but holy shit: I so hope that there will there be more books in the series? And the movie trailers and the soundtrack for the film: LOVE!
