I'm Back!

I'm back from my trip to visit colleges! There were definitely colleges I loved and others that I axed off the list. I have to now start thinking about applying and writing my essays. Isn't that strange?

Sadly, I only managed to read like 2.5 books on my trip. Although, I also journaled everyday, walked a lottttttt, and took notes on prospective schools. So, it was a pretty productive venture.

Here's what I read on my trip:

When Dimple Met Rishi was cute, and I love the author (I stalk her on twitter), but I definitely had a few issues. I'll do a review soon and try to articulate my thoughts.

The Idiot, however, was absolutely amazing. Elif Batuman is an author to watch for sure. I'll definitely have a review for this since I cannot stop thinking about it.

Also, on the plane ride home, I started The Enchanted April. Italy is such a beautiful, magical setting and I am ready to be immersed. I have high hopes... and after I finish the book I can watch the film!

So, what's next? I have my home studio ballet intensive to look forward to (along with the regular 5 days/week of classes all summer), a week-long family trip (but ugh long car ride), college prep and extended essay writing, and hopefully lots more reading!

Ciao! (I'm sorry... The Enchanted April makes me want to move to Italy)
