Why hello my little owlets! Is it okay if I call you owlets? My favorite animals are owls and all different types of birds of prey.... hence the name, BirdsAndPoetry. So, my new pet name for you all is "owlets."
I'm writing this post to assure you that I'm still alive. :) I know I haven't been posting lately.... actually, I haven't posted at all! But with all the obstructions that prevent me from humoring you all (mainly, life), this [blog] is not incredibly high on my to-do list. But I haven't quit reading! I'm actually quite the opposite. I have 5 book reviews to write, but frankly, I'm a bit too lazy to do so. Well, lazy is a bad replacement. I'd say... a severe case of procrastination.
For future reference, and for your benefit, I'll tell you what books I have yet to review.
The Girl in the Clockwork Collar
The Burning Bridge
Night of the Soul Stealer
And I think that's it. Books that I'm planning to read, in the near future:
The Hobbit (and the rest of the LoTR series...and the Silmarillion)
The Hunter's Moon
Books that I'm currently reading:
Witch and Wizard
Attack of the Fiend
The Icebound Land
So this is really more of an update. One thing that downs me is the fact that my crazy life yields me no relief. Many a sleepless night I have spent searching for a comfortable position to read in. And I end up reading 10 pages.
*Sigh*. And then there's the perpetual issue of the apocalypse.
Songs I'm Currently Obsessed With:
"Radioactive" - Imagine Dragons
"Divenire" - Ludovico Einauldi (I recently discovered this classical composer...BEST DISCOVERY EVER)
All Types of Flamenco
"Stairway to Heaven" - Led Zepplin
If you're worldly and observant, you would recognize that both Radioactive and Divenire are from their respective Olympic commercials. I guess the Olympics really are good for something.
Thought of the Day: Why aren't there Intellectual Olympics?
