How is it even May right now? The past couple of days, Iowa weather has been its allovertheplace self; 90 degrees one day, and 40 two days later. A 9-month school year is ending next week, but it feels like it only lasted for 3. I'm almost done with my sophomore year of high school. "I'm going to be a Junior this fall," will feel so strange to say. As of last month, I'm officially fifteen and a half, which means that in six months I'll be sixteen. AH. I still can't wrap my mind around it all. Living in the month of May again, a whole year later, is officially crazy. So many things have changed since last May when most of those things began to change. Twelve months have never passed so quickly.
Lately, I've been indulging in books. I read Beautiful Creatures (by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl) in three days. It was one of those books that is written so well you feel not only astonished but also that you fail at writing because it was just so good. My sister and both I wrote summer reading lists last weekend. Hers has 14 books on it. Mine has 51. (know of any books I should add?)
Even though I'm still freaking out that it's May already, I'm excited for this month.
