The Marvelous Month of May: Favorites, Reviews, and Wrap-Up
A lot of things have happened this month. It's been marvelous. Marvelous, from Old French "merveillos" meaning "causing wonder."
What I've Accomplished
I was in a production of Hello, Dolly! I played Rudolph, the headwaiter.
I STARTED THIS BLOG.
I went to prom.
I made a giveaway.
For that giveaway, I shipped the prize to the lucky winner. (Congrats, Bella!)
I worked hard as my school's recording secretary.
I attended two thesis defenses at my school.
I made a difficult decision.
What I've Loved
Khaled Hosseini's books.
Educational philosophies. I could talk to you about this for hours.
HOW WARM IT IS.
What I've Read
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. A book about the importance of books? Yes. Dystopian, classic, has a creepy tone. Definitely worth the read.
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. I re-read this for my blog launch giveaway, and loved it. Nostalgic. Wonderful.
From the Mixed-Up Files of Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg. Some Saturdays are made for curling up with a Newberry medal winner. A comical, wonderful book for a wonderful day.
Storybound by Marissa Burt. This book got better and better the more I read. By the end, I was in love with its story, and dying for the next one!
Sense and Sensuality by Ravi Zachariah. A really interesting concept. Worth the read.
Some Thoughts Concerning Education by John Locke. I'm a nerd when it comes to educational philosophy. I read this for my education class. I could go on and on about the good ideas and bad ideas...but I don't think that would be too interesting.
Goals for June
Finish my year's work for my leadership training. Don't stress about it, but do it.
Finish sophomore year.
Read a book about apologetics.
Ride my bike to the lake.
Learn more about Jesus.
