I suppose the right way to try to reintroduce myself into your good graces after such a long absence would be to make a delightfully amusing post about the wonderful summer I had and how my own silly procrastination kept me from writing the blog posts I desperately wanted to. But, even if such a post isn't boring for you who'd try to read it, it would be a dreadful bore for me to write it. Suffice it to say that it was a very interesting summer with a lot of fun, boredom, energy, and mood swings. Some of the happenings included getting a brand new laptop, meeting lovely people, reading lovely books, plotting like crazy (plotting books, peoples! Really, I'm not plotting to take down blogdom. Anyways,) reading good, great, and hilarious books (look at my Goodreads for a sample,) watching looooooong movies, going to beaches, listening to soundtracks, going to get-togethers and parties, singing, and... but I'll stop now. We wouldn't want this first paragraph to be longer than the amusing apology post that would bore us all, would we?
Anyways, now I'm finished with summer laziness and getting into school and schedule. I actually cleaned by room completely yesterday. (Believe me, cleaning it is rare enough, but completely is even more. I think it was only once this summer than the cardmaking supplies didn't lace my bookshelf, desk, and floor.)
I'm pretty excited about this year's schoolwork. (Y'all do know I'm homeschooled, right?) I'll be 'officially graduated' sooner than I think I realize right now. Things have gotten a lot more challenging and a lot more interesting too. I'm doing the Omnibus (literature/history/worldview, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera) course right now and I'm pretty excited about it. Even though I'm starting smack-bang in the middle of the books right now, I'm glad to get into it. It looks like it has Real Books, with plenty of classics, an extremely solid worldview, and lots of opportunities to think (which I really like doing sometimes.) On top of this there is that er, problematic math (full of all that nasty geometry and algebra which I never can quite get,) chemistry (which I'm expecting to be better than biology but not as interesting as physics,) Bible, French, music, art, and whatever other things one's Mamma thinks it would be good for one to do.
And that's what will be filling my days, I think! Plus, of course, all those lovely things I've been doing this summer but can't bear to give up. So I expect to be busy, but happy and productive. I've been given a couple delightful awards from some sweet people which I was absolutely estatic to recieve, but I never quite managed to get on here and communicate that ecstacy to you. So you should expect some dee-lightful award posts on here soon. :)
Oh, and before I go, do read Rachel's post with a comment challenge. But this is not a hint. Really, it isn't. It's just something that needs to be said and a much needed reminder to myself. A couple of my bloggy friends wrote amazing posts in the last day or two but did I comment on them? Uh-uh.
Just one more thing: what on earth does one suggest as a name for a little sister's real live birthday present rooster? Bertie Rooster is what I would call him, but it isn't an option for that non-Wodehouse reading girl (she is only ten, after all...)
