But I thought I would take advantage of these wakeful hours and get a head start on typing up my Sundays in bed with post!
I'm not going to have too much time for reading today. I recently took on a part time job at Bath and Body Works. I really love working there but the only problem is I hardly ever get to actually work there. When they hire you has "part time" they really mean it! I haven't worked in THREE weeks!!! But today I am scheduled for a three and half hour shift from 12:15 - 3:45. I have to leave straight from church which means my morning will be packed.
But I will have a window of about 2 hours after work and before Sunday family dinner at my parents house where I will be able to get some reading done. In that time I will be trying to get as much of The Two Towers read as I possibly can!
Another goal that I have set for myself is that I want to get caught up on watching the Vlogbrothers videos! I love John and Hank Green and there videos have made me laugh and cry for quite some time now. Unfortunately I got out of the habit of watching them last spring and as a result I haven't watched a single one since I think February.
In an attempt to kill two birds with one stone, I have devised a system where for every 10 pages of Tolkien that I read I get to watch one video! And since the videos average around 3-4 minutes long I am finding this system to be very helpful!
So far, out of all the ones that I have recently watched, this one is my favorite!
That Hank Green is so silly! Basically Hank and his friend Michael make two batches of cookies. In one batch they put good things in the center of the cookies, like mini oreos or various kinds of candy. In the other batch they put bad things like pickles and tuna in the center of the cookies. Then they play Hungry Hungry Hippos, and whichever one wins gets to eat a "good" cookie and the other has to eat one of the "bad" cookies. What a creative and disgusting idea! It was all in celebration of when the Hunger Games movie was released in theaters.
Hey Andrea, if you are down, I would totally do this with you before the next movie is released!
