Hello College Football! I Have Questions.

Welcome to the beginning of the college football season version 2014. Are we thrilled? I’m thrilled. More than thrilled. I wanted to use a word that wasn’t excited and I thought of thrilled. Anyway…

With football finally back, and everyone stating their predictions, I have some questions. Questions are better than predictions right? I’m going to only ask 5.

1) Are people picking Michigan State to…

Bout of Books Day #6 Update

Day: #6 
Current Read: The Magicians & Half Bad
Books Finished:
Pages Read Since Last Update: 105 (55 of The Magicians and 50 of Half Bad)
Total Pages Read in Read-A-Thon: 640 
Thoughts: I decided to put The Magicians down for a moment on Saturday and I picked up Half Bad later that evening. Not sure if I’ll be able to finish either of these books on Day 7 but I’ll still keep reading.

Switched books for bout of books. I’m enjoying The Magicians but I need to change it up. So I went to witches instead. Lol

Bout of Books Day 5 Update

Day: #5 
Current Read: The Magicians
Books Finished:
Pages Read Since Last Update: 65 
Total Pages Read in Read-A-Thon: 535 
Thoughts: Thank goodness the weekend is here! More time to read. I plan on finishing The Magicians either Saturday or Sunday. I plan on having time left in the read-a-thon in which I’ll pick up…something. I have no idea. I guess I will figure that out. Now, if you’ll excuse me. I’m gonna go read.

Bout of Books Day 4 Update

Day: #4 
Current Read: The Magicians
Books Finished:
Pages Read Since Last Update: 64 
Total Pages Read in Read-A-Thon: 470 
Thoughts: Maybe if I start reading before 7 pm, I might get more reading done. Also, maybe if I don’t go to the bookstore and buy a new book around 8:30 (during that reading time) I might get more reading done. AND maybe if a Simpsons marathon did not begin, more reading would have been done. No, I won’t blame The Simpsons. I should be able to multitask. I am enjoying this book a lot though and getting to know these characters.

Bout of Books Day 3 Update

Day: #3 
Current Read: The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Books Finished:
Pages Read Since Last Update: 42 
Total Pages Read in Read-A-Thon: 406 
Thoughts: Yesterday was a busy day at work for me. I didn’t even have time to read during lunch. I took Insurgent to work with me and read 11 pages on my way home. Then when I got home, I looked over at my bookshelf and decided The Magicians is the book I want to read right now. I hope to finish it in the next few days. I only read a little last night because I was tired.

Switched my next read because I can!

"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news.  Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.  

So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.

Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.  It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired.  These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.

Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”

Day: #2 
Current Read: Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Books Finished: 1 (Divergent)
Pages Read Since Last Update: 215 
Total Pages Read of Read-A Thon: 364 
Thoughts: I finished a book! In re-reading Divergent, I found that I actually liked it more than I thought. I changed my Goodreads rating from a 3 to a 4. I might even go as far as to give it a 4.5. I’m going to continue on to the next book in the trilogy, Insurgent.

So they always put a girl character in movies for someone to fall in love with?
