Mockingjay

The finale in Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games proves to be excellent, just like the previous installments. Although it broke my heart, I still loved it. The pacing was perfect (I read it in just 2 days) and the ending was so satisfying. I greatly enjoyed reading this trilogy and if you haven’t already read it, put it on your tbr list right now!

Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖

Yes. This is the only book I have read this month.

  • I went to Arizona for a wedding and reunited with family, and hung out at the pool a lot (it was 106 degrees one day!)
  • I went to New York City and saw landmarks like the Empire State Building and Ellis Island. We also went to a broadway show (School of Rock). I was truly the trip of a lifetime!
  • I didn’t read. At all.

I have officially been doing NaNoWriMo for two months.

I am 46 pages behind.

I am not disappointed.

  • I am writing this by hand, and not typing it on a computer
  • This is my very first draft
  • I haven’t planned very much of it
  • I have been very busy recently, and haven’t had the time to write every day, even if it is just 2 pages
  • I have 2 whole months of make-up time (September and October) before November starts
  • This is the most I have ever written
  • I am only 12 years old
  • I am trying my best
  • I am producing high quality writing
  • Writing is a passion that I love, not a chore that I should dread

Even though I didn’t complete my goal, I am not disappointed because I am working as hard as I can.

But still I can’t wait until I’m done and the *real* NaNoWriMo comes along…

In case you guys didn’t know, I am participating in the NaNoWriMo challenge! Well…kinda. I am basically writing 50K words in three months of a new novel. Then when the *real* NaNoWriMo Challenge comes around in November, I will be prepared! Check out my profile here. Then we can be writing buddies!

The “Books I read spread” is actually a mistake! I was going to have it be a header with calligraphy (using the Crayola Supertips) but I messed up! I decided to cover it up by coloring my mistake in. 😉 #bujohacks

I find it very useful to track expenses, even if it isn’t very fun!

2. She’s Hardworking + Really Athletic

Polly is a dancer, and she always dances “full-out”. She works hard to improve and get better to reach her goals in not just dance, but all aspects of her life. Whenever she is struggling with something, she keeps on trying, even when it’s really hard.
