Half way through Austenland now, I’m actually enjoying it more than I thought.

Listen, I don’t actually believe I can somehow end up married to Mr. Darcy. I just… nothing in real life feels right as…" —
Jane Hayes - Austenland
I finally finished reading Carrie the other day. Some of it was hard to get through, the parts where she interacts with her Momma, and be to treated like that, you really feel for her. Poor thing. I think I’m going to read Austenland next, it’s a short read. Was thinking about reading Percy Jackson, but that’s like 5 books to get through and S. well I can’t exactly read that on the train without all the inserts falling out! The Divergent trilogy is still on it’s way, should receive it by next week, hard covers, couldn’t find the paperback box set. Need to find more space on bookshelf for these books. I just recently rearranged my bookshelf too! Had to make room for TMI and TID. (Man, I really want to buy the special edition white cover books of the Hunger Games trilogy with the metallic edges. I bought the black ones, before the spec ed came out, which ain’t as bad the original covers.) And I guess when I have the time, I’ll finish off A Clash of Kings, probably sometime next year before season 4 of GOT starts. I stopped it at Theon Greyjoy’s chapter, ughh. Can you believe that it was only $30 something for the box set at Costco?? And I bought it for nearly double the price. :(( Oh and of course there’s the chick lits; The Devil Wears Prada, Lipstick Jungle and Bridget Jones: Mad about The Boy - of which I’ve read 60 pages and had to put it down. It really isn’t the same without Mark Darcy, not sure if Daniel Cleaver would be making an appearance, should get back to it. Okay probably will after Austenland.
ughh i think i ate too much candy
Just woke up, going to shower and start my day editing photos. Last night I decided that my socially awkward self, who lacks street smart?? should just go head and book tickets to travel a bit of Europe during my next winter break, before I start my honours year. I figured out the dates and have about/under 8 weeks, I thought it would’ve been more like 12 weeks. Gonna need things like a mono pod, and maybe a garter wallet, since my mom says I dress like a nun with all collared shirts and dresses, won’t be able to access hidden bra pockets lol. I’m going to be this petite asian girl traveling around by herself, I’m mostly worried about flights and dining alone and obviously it’s not going to be like a Before Sunrise sitch.
