To Ill To Read (Quick Post)

I’ve suddenly been hit by what I can only describe as death. (I’m exaggerating of course, but honest – my head kills!) I can barely check Facebook without a dull pain behind my eyes – it’s hard enough writing this!

Migraine

It’s been a busy week, full of unneeded stresses and worries, and now I can’t even pick up a book without getting a migraine.

I’m going to sleep and hoping for the best – and if not, I’m going to have a bad day at work tomorrow. Wish me luck, and hopefully I recover soon enough to post some book reviews (of the hundreds of books I should be reading…)

 

BYE!

Game of Thrones: Pre-Read

Okay okay, I know- I really should have read it by now. But, fantasy isn’t usually my thing.  However, books that get the general public reading when they usually wouldn’t, are.

What I know about Game of Thrones so far…

  • “It’s a bit like Twitter. There’s 140 characters and everybody dies” – direct quote from my friend and fellow writer/undergrad, Penny Gotch
  • It’s about royal families fighting for the throne…
  • Lot’s of people die…
  • “It’s about sex, death and dragons.” – summary by by boyfriend, Ryan (cheers mate…)
  • There’s a lot of fighting…
  • According to my friends, it’ s very addictive
  • It’s got a huge fandom
  • One of the kings is a teenager
  • The throne is made of swords(?)

Edition: 

I have the TV Series version (book cover, I mean)

Wish me luck on my journey to discovering the daunting world of Game of Thrones!

My Top Ten Ways To Procrastinate

1. YouTube vlogs: 

2. Scrolling:

I’m constantly scrolling through social media sights – it’s a real problem!

3. Watching DVDs:

Me and my friend/housemate Lara are currently on S6 Ep 4 of Lost (if you haven’t seen it, go watch it – now!)

4. Texting: 

I never put my phone down, like ever.

5. Apps:

I’m always downloading new apps or games to see if they’re any good – BUT: I still haven’t tried Candy Crush…

6. Music: 

I have a free Spotify account (I will splash out and buy Premium one day). I’m notorious for my awful taste in music, so my boyfriend made me a playlist of “toons” (forgive his ironic spelling). I like it so far, but at the moment, my favourite playlist has to be: ‘Pre-Drinking Playlist’ – by Her Campus CCCU – you should check it out!

7. Eating: 

I will hold my virtual hands up to this and confess: I am a snacker. I just can’t be bothered to cook (sorry, Mom)

8. Reading: 

You would think that reading would be higher on the list, but I usually read in the bath or in bed – so it’s basically multi-tasking.

9. Doodling: 

You should see the state of my notebooks – I can barely go a page without a doodle of some kind. It’s usually things like arrows, or flowers (I wonder what that means…?)

10. Selfies: 

I’m 19 – what do you expect?
