A desideratum.

Summer '17 at Uni

Accidently on purpose.

This summer I planned on doing what I enjoy doing in the summer. Maybe I can attend a concert. Maybe I can read a bunch of books. Maybe I can travel somewhere. I had planned to do everything and nothing at once. How exciting! Scratch that. I am now doing most of the opposite. Sort of.

A couple of weeks ago, I met with my student advisor. We were planning the rest of my academic career at the school because I am due to graduate next spring. Now, that's exciting! Of course, I got extremely excited about that. Just like all of the other students, I've been working hard.

With all of the excitement buzzing in my advisor's office, I completely didn't think what I said next through: What about summer courses? What did I do? A lot of students take summer and winter courses. Subconsciously I jumped at the opportunity when I heard free and early graduation. Before my brain could stop me, I blurted out a question that I had been thinking. So, here I am now.

Summer '17 & ACOTAR

I'm not sure why professors like to torture students, but I feel like they secretly do.  have pre-course homework for both my summer lecture that start in two weeks and pre-course readings with a bit of homework for my fall lecture that starts in August. Can anyone sense the excitement? 

Honestly, If you're like me. Homework is a bore and having to read textbooks is a hassle. Somehow we make it through. My professors put course material online before the class started. That makes me slightly happy. I always take initiative and learn the material in advance. Taking the time to learn the material saves me from nights full of anxiety and stress. I know I'm not the only one.

Besides summer lectures and homework, I am excited to be reading A Court of Thorn and Roses. I've heard so much about it. I can't help being excited about it. I put the book on hold for a few days because of homework and I need to learn the new material, but I can't wait to finish. I mean TAMLIN. Am I right? If you've read it, tell me what you think. Someone told me that I'm going to end up hating Tamlin. That makes me so sad. Someone also told me that I should have started with the Throne of Glass Series. Either way, I am excited to read the ACOTAR series and the TOG series. I've officially fallen in love with Sarah J. Maas writing. 

Any thoughts?
