New Year's Eve Readathon: Update
I'm getting ready to dive back into my reading and wanted to do a bit of an update, since I have a feeling I'll be falling asleep soon. Here is my update:
Books Read: 0 that I can count as finished
Pages Read: 400-500 so far, but I've been bouncing between four different books
Rationale: I actually didn't want to finish anything (which sounds crazy, I know), but that's because I want to start off 2013 with a number of books read. :)
Snacks/Meals: Only one break for food and sustenance. Shocking, I know!
Text Messages: About 20+ thanks to a flurry of texts sent between myself and my family and friends out of state. My poor family and friends locally! (Now I'm feeling guilty that I didn't text them too. Sorry!)
Papers Graded: 10 AP Essays during the course of this readathon. If you know me, that is nothing shy of a miracle and puts me right on track to have them finished before I head back to work. (This also makes me nuts, yet very happy.)
Craziest Distraction, Outside of Grading: Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin on CNN's New Year's Eve. Watching Kathy made Anderson uncomfortable and giggle incessantly while trying to change the subject, just made me laugh.
I'm off to do some reading and to ring in the New Year. Thanks to everyone who put up with my endless tweeting about nonsense and my lack of focus. You've all helped me lift the dark cloud off of this holiday a little more. Maybe next year I can sweep the bad memories away for good! Have a great one!
