Excuses and Whatnot

I just wanted to publicly bewail the fact that summer has not brought the blogging time, motivation, and inspiration that I thought it would.  I had all sorts of wonderful half-formed ideas, but, well....they're not happening.  Fact is, I'm still doing schoolwork, and by the time I'm done this year I'll be starting next year.  Which is my senior year, which is scary.  I can't imagine a life without tests and textbooks looming over me every hour and poking at my conscience when I ignore them.  Sounds too good to be true.  I guess once school's over one has other difficulties looming over work and money (or lack thereof) and goodness knows what else.  I just want to go on trips, read books all day, and get good at piano.  Is that too much to ask? 
*inner common sense answers "yes, you idiot."*

So, I just now realized that I never wrote the promised review of North and South.  I think that's partly because I cannot form anything more articulate on the subject than asdkfn;sdlfn;s*squee*.   But I shall do that....eventually.  Also, just so you know there's going to be some random (possibly annoying) polls popping up in the near future, because polls are fun and I am too indecisive to figure things out without the aid of the internet (a.k.a. the intelligence-sucking monster of procrastination).  The polls (I made a typo and it said "pools".  Ha.  Hahaha.  That's funny.) will mostly have to do with blog-setup stuff until I get those nagging questions resolved.

Okay...I'm rambling.  I just kinda wanted to write a post but didn't feel like, y'know, thinking.   So...yeah.  Hi.


  1. Hahaha! Don't worry dear. I know exactly how it feels. I just finished the last biology test of my book which I started last school year. Now I, too, am going into my senior year. I had ALL KINDS of plans for this summer, like sewing all day to make things for my shop mainly, also reading Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, and also lots of other, well, things. And you know what? I didn't do any of them. They're all sort of half-finished or not started at all. I did watch the first two episodes of North and South last night though, and am eagerly anticipating the next two, so I will be interested in your review on the series. I really liked it, I don't know about you, but Mr. Thornton is absolutely to die for. *swoon* :)
    Anyway, keep your spirits up, at least you've got one girl out there that knows how ya feel.

    Ta-ta for now!
    Miss Elizabeth

    1. Ah, a fellow-sufferer in seniorness. *hugs* Thanks for your encouragement! It really does help.

      As for North & South... SQUEE. *ahem* That is...yeahhhh. Mr. Thornton is pretty amazing. My review was actually just going to be about the book, but after reading your comment and thinking about it a bit, I think I might do a joint review and sort of compare the book and the film. We shall see. :)

  2. Victoria and Miss Elizabeth, have a blast with your senior year! I'm going into my senior year of college, and to tell the truth I'm too ready to graduate for comfort... but since we're all stuck for another year, I bet we can pull the best out of it and have an AMAZING time. *smiles* God bless you!

    1. That's the spirit! You're always so bright and encouraging, Clare dear. :) And you're right! Let's just make the best of it and try to have fun. God bless you in your senior year of college as well! How exciting THAT must be!


Your comments make my day! I read every single one of them, and I'll usually check out my commenters' blogs, if I don't follow them already. I try to reply to my comments, but please don't be offended if I don't make it to yours. Procrastination habits do extend to comment replies, unfortunately.

Of course, courtesy is necessary. I will delete any comments which do not meet my requirements.

Thanks for making the effort to tell me your thoughts!
