*exhausted yawn*

The last three days have just been a mass of getting things done. I've been going to classes and getting books and organizing my life and bringing in last minute stuff for the movie theater, and doing homework. Somehow I've also managed to eat relatively well, read, and write through all of that. College has been good so far. Classes are pretty good (though my English teacher never showed up for English Composition so I dunno how that will be) and I haven't freaked out or anything. I met a girl from London who's in my English class and talked and hung out a little bit with another girl from English class who commutes too. So it's been cool. Also, one of the managers at the movie theater that I met yesterday was super hot.... So as soon as I start working there I'm gonna be batting my eyelashes like there's no tomorrow (he's not really old, maybe in his twenties, so it's all good!).

A fictional book:

It's called Revolution, by Jennifer Donnelly, and it comes out in October. My sister's friend's friend works in publishing or advertisement for Random House and she loaned her an advanced reading copy, which she loaned me. It was friggin' amazing. It combines history with the present, paints a tragically beautiful and garish picture of the revolution and life, and I can't wait for it to come out for real so I can have my own copy. Below is a link to Jennifer Donnelly's website where you can read a legitimate summary of the book and of her other books.


A non-fictional book:

It's called Life Inside and it's an autobiography by Mindy Lewis. It's all about how she was put into a psychiatric hospital in the '60s, when she was sixteen, because she smoked pot and did art, and her mom called her disobedient and truant. She was there until after she was eighteen, put on medications, and analyzed, when the only thing really wrong with her was that she was a misunderstood teenager in a crazy time. The book chronicles her life through the hospital, getting out, and everything up until her life now. It's my favorite book of all time- a beautiful portrait of a beautiful life and an amazing woman. It's beautifully written and real and raw, and I've read it more than once. I recommend it to everyone.
