Well, it's beginning to heat up now! At the super pointy end of the year, everything is suddenly due and there is suddenly no time for it. Not to mention I have suddenly come down sick. Not retchingly ill but certainly sicker than usual. My nose has been running like a tap and my throat is sand paper. I am proud of my remedies, however ineffective they seem to be so far.
I have so far enjoyed:
- Black tea with honey
- Salt water gargle
- Betadine gargle
- Two cold and flu tablets
- One Vitamin C tablet
- Eucalyptus lollies and
- Blackcurrent Fisherman's Friends
And all the while, I have on my mind an Ancient History assignment due tomorrow, a huge drama performance on Monday, a Modern History assignment on Tuesday, and English and music assessments to have complete within next week.
But in all this mess of tissues and text books, I have found Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close a shining light of glory. I have structured my day around it. I stop studying at half past nine and hop into bed with a cup of tea to read until my eyes droop. I am enjoying it so much, and dreading every second the imminent closure. I'm reading too much! I will finish it so soon and then what life line will I have to clutch at as I plummet down the rabbit hole to completion of grade eleven? That was a cheesy line. Anyhow, do any of you have a burning suggestion for what I should read next? My last couple of books have been unbelievably perfect, and I want to continue on this ride of great reads.
