I got my books (yay!) but I have to read a novel for English on top of all that. Will I never get to read what I want?! I feel like that guy off of The Twilight Zone.

I'm hanging on the edge of THREE CLIFFHANGERS right now!!!
So here's how it started.
I was reading the Unwanteds series (I'm on book 3 now), but while I was meandering around the library one day I came across a really great book, The Young Elites. Two books now. Little did I know that The Young Elites was ALSO in a series, leaving me doomed to read two books at once for an undisclosed amount of time! What's more, the third Unwanteds book has a TERRIBLE, AWFUL, PAINFULLY IRKSOME cliffhanger. I mean, I'm okay with a feeling of suspense at the end of a book, but at least most draw to a conclusive semi-ending! But NOOOOO, Lisa McMann just had to choose the most screaming gasping intense moment in the WHOLE BOOK to end on! And then! AND THEN! THE FREAKING LIBRARY DIDN'T HAVE THE NEXT BOOK IN YET!! AND I DON'T OWN IT!! AND THERE WASN'T EVEN A PREVIEW AT THE END OF THE STUPID BOOK!!!
The Young Elites was less like that, but I still need to read the next one. (The school's library doesn't have it, but the local one does, thank gosh.)
But the snowball of cliffhanging continues, my friends. You see, having nothing to read at the moment, I needed something to hold me out until I could get my hands on the next bits of the series.' I decided to read Uglies, a book I received for Christmas. It was a pretty interesting destopia. But, what do you know? Another cliffhanger. And I can't get the next book.

We were watching the part were Thor mentions Bilgesnipe.
Thor - "The Bilgesnipe, you know. Huge, scaly, big antlers...? You don't have those?"
Coulson - "I don't think so."
Thor - "Well, they are repulsive, and they trample everything in their path."
And then my little brother chimes in, "Just like Loki!"
So I said, "Yeah but they aren't huge and scaly with big-- *GASP* Wait a second."
So apparently Loki is a bilgesnipe! I mean, he's not so huge, but he's definitely scaly and definitely has big antlers. How funny!

Today my Phys. Ed. class switched from Gym to Health for second semester.
I sat a few seats away from my friend Julia, who had arrived earlier.
"Jonni!" she said. "On a scale of one to ten, how bad would you rate the outcome of this semester, based on the board?"I looked up at the whiteboard at the front of the classroom. On it was written: "CHAPTER 12 TERMS" and a list of words including 'adolescence,' 'reproduction,' 'sperm,' 'uterus,' and 'testes,' as well as many others of that nature.
"Oh gosh," I said.Later, we were assigned to write down the definition for each term. I really hope that no one is stupid enough to use Urban Dictionary for this.
The rating? Eleventy-two.
