First post in a week?

This is looking bad. Oh dear.

Want to know what else is bad?
I was just logging on for a brief moment to say that i needed to study and couldn't post.

Perhaps we should start just blogging when we have something to say? Good plan? Email me?

I'm starting this blog on Sunday! That's how badly I feel about these past few weeks.
I am 100% home now though. I think.
Anyway, this week's post is going to be about university. This may sound a bit odd coming from a sophomore, but it's something i think about on occasion. This week is definitely one of those times. Recently, I visited Toronto to chill with some cousins (50 or 60 of them), and to see the city and surrounding area(s). One of the best parts of the trip was seeing UofToronto. I'm pretty sure it was perfect. There's a castle for christsake. The whole thing looks like it could be taken out of Harry Potter. Maybe on a smaller scale, but close. Whatever the case, it was pretty cool.
I hate to say it, but i'm excited for Uni. There's this draw to it that i think every teenager feels. The idea of spending all your time learning the things you love with intelligent people who share your interests and living on your own and answering to nothing. Pretty idyllic. What teenager wouldn't want that.

So that's what i've been thinking about.

Also, i've been thinking about some poetry. Specifically, ones by a woman named Sarah Kay.

The video is at Bowery Poetry Club, where Sarah got her start. She's quite brilliant, and her poetry makes me think. Especially this one. It says so much about the bonds between siblings.

I think that's it for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Echo... echo... echo...

Hello? (hello... hello... hello...)

It seems like nobody is here. *looks around* Well, that's strange. I suppose... everyone's out and about having lives.

I've been doing BEDA this month on my personal blog. I considered VEDA, but I thought I'd be too busy to film and edit a video everyday for a month '~' Especially since I've got to work on a number of videos for contests. (Like this one, for Robyn Schneider's Knightley Academy series.)

Today's pretty exciting for me, the bookworm, because two of my favorite series are releasing books today. City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I just got an email saying that they shipped. At minimum it'll take 3 days to get here, but I don't have such faith in the postal service...

If you've been lurking around Twitterverse, or the youtubes, I'm sure you've taken notice at the sheer amount of Nerdfighters who are candidates for the NextUp program!? I've been really excited for everyone and voting everyday for so many! I'd list all of them... but there really are a lot of candidates, haha.

Here's wishing they do well!
