So I just realized I need to blog more often about my daily life in England on this blog now that one of my best friends just went to Beijing, China for half a year and can’t access any networking sites. Yes, that means facebook and twitter are down, so the best way for me to communicate with her about the jazz of England would be through my blog. Bear with me people, I’m afraid you now have to read about all the whimsical and unimportant little things (that might not make sense to many of you) about my life.
I’ve been spending the last month in Norway catching up with my friends and helping out here and there anywhere I could be of some help, and soon my summer ends as I am booked on a flight back to England on Wednesday 22nd September. I am so very excited to start my second year as a pharmacy student at the University of East Anglia. I probably will be moaning about the crazy truckload of work in a few months time (trust me, they work us hard over there), but right now I am very very excited to go back. I’ve been going through a rather difficult period where I actually had to question my future, but now that I’ve emerged from it successfully I feel fit to fight. Bring it on, baby!
I’ve also bought quite a few books this summer/fall, and one of the books I’ve been anticipating for a while now is Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I loved her Mortal Instruments books, and thought Clockwork Angel would definitely be a good read. So far, so good. Oh, and if you’re wondering from looking at the cover; yes, the story is set in London.
Btw, is it just me, or are the covers for many YA books moody, ugly and plain depressing (not including Cassandra Clare’s covers, I love them)? A lot of YA and childrens literature is amazing (His Dark Materials), but it’s a real shame about the covers. I’m also checking out Garth Nix and Diana Wynne Jones at the moment, I have a good feeling about these two authors. Also, I’m looking forward to getting started on my copy of the new Artemis Fowl book: The Antlantis Complex. How can you NOT love the genius boy Artemis?
