Goodbye, September.


Goodbye September 2011, I am not really sad to see you go. You made me get back into school full swing, what's up with that? I hate getting up at 5:30, I must tell you. I'm not liking all the homework either. Actually, I should be doing it now.

But, there were also some good things in this month. Like dance back in full swing! 4 days a week at my dance academy is great, then now the dance team at my high school got started! I'm really proud of me and my friend for creating it, I thought it wouldn't happen. So I'm there sometimes once or twice a week dancing. We have auditions on Monday the 3rd, Wednesday the 5th, and Saturday the 8th. I'm looking forward to it even though I'm going to be more sore and bruised than I already am!

I only read 4 books this month, it's a shame. School is taking away all my reading time! Although I only read a few, they were still amazing.

1. Blood Red Road by Moria Young.
2.Shadow Kiss- Vampire Academy # 3 by Richelle Mead.
3. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
4. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta.

The two books from my September list that I HIGHLY recommend to all of you are..

These two books are now on my favorites list and you all need to read them. Blood Red Road is one of my all-time favorites, not even just of this month. Go read both of these, just do it. 

Along with dance and school, School Newspaper also started back. I'm the editor again. I don't know how I'm going to find time to do it.. ugh. 

I actually wrote this month! It was only a little bit, but still, I finally wrote! Finally a breakthrough! I'm pretty proud of what I have so far of my new book, even though it's only like five pages and I haven't even decided on a title yet...

I'm looking forward to October. We will be learning our Hip Hop dance at my dance academy from a Choreographer who lives in NYC on Oct. 2nd, then the 3rd, 5th, and 8th, are High School Dance Team auditions, so we'll have the team together soon! We will be starting to learn our Lyrical dance on the 22nd at my dance academy. Another dance filled month.

Then there's a Fall Play that is going to go on at our school. I really want to try out for it, and I think I actually have a shot since it's just acting, and I'm actually decent at that. I just hope I make it, and if I do make it, if I have time for it! 

October will be a great book filled month as well! I hope to read these books in Oct in no particular order-

-Blood Promise- Vampire Academy # 4 by Richelle Mead. (Currently Reading)
- Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson.
- Spirit Bound- Vampire Academy # 5 by Richelle Mead. 
-The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. 



Aren't those covers beautiful? I'm so excited to read them!

I also gained a lot of followers this month, thanks so much guys! I never, ever thought I'd have 95! That's crazy!

October is also..
THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE 828!
October 10th to be exact!
I'd like to do a giveaway or something, but since I can't send anything out in the mail, it would be hard.

Well, I hope you guys had a great month!

I ordered Blood Red Road and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I'm glad to hear you loved the first! The authors of those two books are coming to my city's library, so that's why I have to read them.

It sounds like you have a busy and packed October! I enjoy reading and like the books you've chosen - I'm going to check more into them!

Enjoy your October!

Perhaps for your one year blog-aversary you can ask some friends/bloggers (those that make/create things) if they'd like to donate an item (and they send it out)! Just an idea!

Wow, can you believe it's October? It's not just "Where did the summer go?" but "Where did the year go?"!!! AH! I'm enjoying autumn, though. :) I'm glad that even though school started again, you've also got fun stuff going on! It seems like you really enjoy dance, so that's good. :) I hope you have time to read and write more, though!

Congrats on the dance team, as well as for getting some writing done! I'll read the first few pages soon!

And last of all... good luck with the fall play! Break a leg! :D

Hugs!
