I am well into book 2 of Tolkien's The Two Towers and hoping to finish it by Friday. After that, I'll be immediately leaping into Return of the King. I thought I would have time for House of Hades by Rick Riordan this weekend but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. It arrives in the mail tomorrow and will be my reward for finishing the LOTR trilogy. I'm also making my way through B.F. Skinner's Verbal Behavior for a research paper and, I have to say, it's fairly fascinating.
What I'm Writing
Papers for class. CK revisions have been put on hold while I read LOTR and write a paper for Tolkien and another paper for Grammar. Hopefully in another day or two I can get rolling again.
What Inspires Me
There's a song, Light 'Em Up by Fall Out Boy, and I'm completely obsessed with it right now. It took me about four days to realize the reason why I felt like I'd heard it before was because I did, it's in the Sea of Monsters movie. It's really upbeat and catchy and I've pretty much been listening to it every morning to wake myself up.
What Else I've Been Up To
I watched the series finale of Heroes on Thursday and now I'm stuck in that weird state where I really want to watch more but there isn't any more to watch. I know a lot of people bash the show as it goes on through the seasons and while, no it's not as good as the first season, I still really loved it. If things ever settle down again, I'm going to start watching Star Trek the original series again. I took a break midway through the second season to watch the first season of Heroes and "the first season of Heroes" somehow turned into "all four seasons of Heroes."
I hope you all have a great week!
