I’m so sorry I haven’t been updating. It’s been….about a month…since I’ve posted anything. But fear not…I am back (for now).
Life has been crazy with school and work. School’s going pretty well – I’ve been adjusting well to my new school. My grades are doing fine (even though we are only a couple weeks into the semester). And work is, well, work. I live in Baltimore (for those who don’t know). (Almost) every Friday, I do an internship (that I started over the summer) at the Maritime Museum down in Fell’s Point (in Baltimore City) doing conservation and restoration of books from different time periods – mainly from the old days…I’ve come across books from the late 1800’s, sometimes older.
I have been trying to get back into writing my wonderful book, but I haven’t had the chance to. I’m hoping to get back into writing sometime this upcoming week.
Today, I will be posting EVERYTHING I have in my drafts folder. I have work later on today, so I’m going to be doing it all this morning. I have: my book haul/wrap up for August, my TBR for September, one review, and one special post which I will go into detail in that particular post.
I want to update this blog a lot more than I do, but sometimes it gets so hard with everything that I do.
Until my next post,
So school is starting next week and I am really excited! I will be entering a four-year university as a junior and I will be continuing my studies as a Media and Communication Studies major and an Ancient Studies minor.
This semester will probably be one of my hardest college semesters because I am not used to being at a four-year university and I will definitely find it challenging.
i will most likely not read as much, but it will be because I will be focusing on my studies more than I will be focusing on reading.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF THOSE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL THIS YEAR!
Until my next post,
I will be participating in the Tome Topple Readathon in the month of August from the 4th to the 17th. The books I plan on reading are:
- “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” by Stieg Larsson
- “The Chemist” by Stephenie Meyer
- “The Unexpected Everything” by Morgan Matson
The challenges are:
1. Read more than 1 tome
2. Read a graphic novel (still over 500 pages!)
3. Read a tome that is part of a series
4. Buddy read a tome
5. Read an adult novel
Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes on YouTube is the original creator of this Readathon and all credit goes to her.
I plan on doing a lot of reading this summer – I want to finish my reading challenge for the year. I believe it is doable.
Since I am going off to a 4-year university next year (yay me!), there is going to be a lot revolved around that.
I also plan on getting another bookshelf since mine are really cramped.
What are your plans for the summer? Answer in the comments section and we can talk!
Until my next post,
Here are the differences between the book and the show:
- In the TV Show, there was a lawsuit while in the book, there was not.
- The ending of the TV Show makes Clay more aware of his surroundings while in the books, he isn’t. Justin runs away. Tyler is seen with guns in his room. Alex is in critical condition after his own suicide attempt. There is a breakthrough in the lawsuit.
- In the book, Hannah’s parents are nonexistent, while in the TV Show, they are everywhere.
- In the book, Courtney tries to keep up her image as a good person while in the show, Courtney is the completely opposite.
- In the book, Clay and Hannah were not close, but in the show, Clay and Hannah were clearly more than friends.
- The show amplifies the bad behavior of the teenage characters – drinking, drug use, sexual activities, guns, foul language, etc.
- The book takes place over one night while the show takes place over the matter of weeks.
- Clay was supposed to be #9, but he was #11 in the show.
- Jenny in the book while it is Sheri in the show.
- Clay confronts Bryce in the show and gets his recorded confession about raping Hannah.
- In the book, Hannah committed suicide by overdosing on pills. In the show, Hannah committed suicide by slitting her wrists.
- The show focuses on the other people on the tapes, as well as Clay and Hannah, and how they are dealing with the aftermath of Hannah’s death.
Here are the similarities between the book and the show:
- In both, Clay speaks up and talks to Skye because he thinks she is contemplating suicide.
- Hannah’s parents are grieving.
- Courtney still is a mean person.
- The drinking, language, sex, drug use, and rapes.
- It’s Clay’s point-of-view throughout the entire thing.
- Some people claim how things went down in Hannah’s tapes are not what actually happened.
I just wanted to update ya’ll about what’s been going on in my life.
I haven’t been able to read much this semester – 18 credits (for college) really is a lot. I am currently on Spring Break and guess what I’m doing…………..HOMEWORK! I haven’t been able to read much because I’m too busy doing homework.
My TBR pile is just piling up! I have so many books that I have to read this month and no time to read them. I mean, I read when I can, but it’s been hard. I’ve been mainly sticking to ebooks these past few months.
I started going to physical therapy for my back injury. It’s been a difficult process. Next week is my last week and I’m so grateful for those who have helped me along the way. The ones who I’ve worked with so far – Donnie, Shelby, John, and Allyson – have been so amazing and friendly and dedicated to their work.
But my journey is not over yet……..
I am graduating from community college on June 3, 2017 with my Associate’s Degree in Mass Communication
I am proud to announce that in August 2017, I will be attending the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC for short) and working my way towards a Bachelors Degree in Media/Communication Studies!
