It's long overdue, but here's another Anna Update! My excuse? School has kept me very busy (more on that) along with my volunteering. Nevertheless, I'm here now (one tired teen here ready for action) and ready to ramble.
ANNA UPDATE ONE | AMAZON
I recently started an Amazon account! My goal was to post my book reviews on there, and well, uhm, I'm pretty obsessed. I love the "interesting finds" category (so visual!!), and the wishlist feature. Now, I haven't been buying my "dream" items, but I'm definitely sharing my wishlist during the holiday season. Am I the only one just scrolling around on Amazon?
ANNA UPDATE TWO | BUZZFEED UNSOLVED
So, I'm in love with Buzzfeed Unsolved?? Y EAH. I found this reality-like, supernatural webseries from social media (so. much. hype), but I didn't start it immediately. I knew Buzzfeed's content was getting repetitive, so I stayed away for a bit ... UNTIL I JUST GAVE IN (#noselfcontrol). And I'm actually so glad I did. The show is very interesting, well-done, and funny! Two guys host the show, Ryan and Shane, and I LOVE THEM. Ryan 100% believes in ghosts/spirits. He does all this research on ghost sightings (so cool!!). Shane doesn't believe in ghosts/spirits. So, he can get pretty reckless during their explorations. The two of them are so entertaining, and I highly recommend the series! (note: i don't find this webseries *that* scary, but i would suggest 13+ and older for disturbing images/scenes/information. also !! lots of swearing)
ANNA UPDATE THREE | CHRISTMAS?!
Halloween is over *silent tear*. And yes- I'm that kind of person who's anti-Christmas until December 1st. No holiday songs, gifts, decorations, movies, etc. Yet, this year, I'm finding myself already planning gifts and activities? WHAT'S GOING ON. I think because I really want to find my family & friends great gifts (at great prices too please!!) this year. I'm usually uncritical with my present shopping. Again I'm that kind of person who'll said "aLl yOu NeeD iS My lOve!1!" during the holidays. Everyone (especially this year) has been so incredibly patient and understanding with me in these last months. So, I would love to share my appreciation through a gift.
ANNA UPDATE FOUR | MEET SOPHIE
Oh yeah ... we also got a puppy! This is Sophie; my mom's new dog. We (sadly) had to put down Hope (my mom's old dog) due to certain events. But, a few months later, my mom came across this foster shelter and fell in love with Sophie. Sophie is a female pup, around 5 months and is (we think) a border collie/flat coated retriever mix! She loves to cuddle and play, but also nip on everyone/thing. She's really good with people and road trips, but has snuck outside (ALONE) too many times. I think I posted a picture of her on social media, yet never posted an "official announcement". Well here is it!
ANNA UPDATE FIVE | COLLEGE CLASSES
I'm currently going part-time at my local high school; and I'm dropping out the third semester. To recap: during these last months ... I have been very tired, anxious, and physically/mentally drained because of public school. I haven't had time to do the things I love, and want to expand in. And honestly? I forgot how MUCH public school is. The drama, extra activities, homework, tests etc. I'm only enjoying two classes out of four. Nobody really knows me either. I mean, a classmate in my English I class didn't even know there was an "Anna" in English I. So, I have my reasons and I'm dropping out. I'm taking a different path! Our local college offers specific classes where you can earn college/high school credits. There are a LOT of steps getting there since I'm a minor (forms, working with counselors, a placement test etc.), but I'm excited to try. Wish me luck!!
Happy Friday bookaholics! Any Buzzfeed Unsolved fans here? Or Amazon? Who's ready for the holidays? Tell me down below!
