A Bit Bookish

The name's Luna.
24/Los Angeles/wannabe blogger & researcher
Just another freak in the Freak Kingdom.
A place for me to ramble about books I love... also probably the only blog I'll ever have that will keep its theme. I don't want my page to be a mess so I'm only going to shelve books starting with what I've read in the past year.
I'm not always eloquent, and I'm certainly not pretentious. I am just a huge nerd who lurks in used bookstores and likes to read and do research for fun.
Geeks unite.

a bit frazzled

— feeling crazy rabbit

So I got my schoolstuff done, got my menial errands done, but I didn't get to the bookstore and I didn't get to clean the house, and I'm just now sitting down to eat.
Doing anything in LA takes a million years. 

I don't think I'm going to be able to get into Honors English because of my idiot math grades... who needs math!? I can write you a 12 page paper within 2 days if I have to... that's an average of 6 pages a day... see, math! That's all the math I need! I'm going to try anyway. I have an application with a little essay that I've got to bring in on Monday morning, so we'll see... honestly I really should get my math skills up even though my brain attic closes its doors to math every single time I try.

In other news, I'm taking this Anthropology class online and I'm thinking it's going to be pretty intense! Which is good- I want to challenge myself, and most of my other classes aren't challenging at all, outside of finding the money for textbooks (cue that corny joke drum beat thing). It's Cultural Anthropology, which I'm extremely interested in. The discussion group should be a little easier for me than it used to be when I took online classes now that I've gotten used to interacting in forums a bit more. It looks like there is A LOT of reading to be done, but the most challenging thing is probably the fieldwork. I'm not entirely sure what it entails but we're supposed to go out and observe/interview people and take pictures and everything and write up an anthropological study. I'm thinking this class is going to take up a lot of time, so some of my posts might just be pieces I worked on for class, same with English Lit 1. I'm aiming to make straight A's for the first time in my life so I'm a little nervous about having two online classes (anthro. and math) but I'm going to go through my planner right now and schedule everything out, and I'll make sure to schedule booklikes time as well!

If anyone has any tips on how to handle school and work and adulting all at the same time, I'd be thrilled to hear them!
