Favor to ask...

Hey everyone!

Did you ever wonder how time can fly so fast, but at the same time, how it can be so slow? That's the question I've kept asking myself these past few days...

Lots of things and nothing is happening lately... I've been reading and am behind in my reviewing. The problem is that since this week-end, I keep telling myself I would write those reviews, but then, I opt to read instead. That would be all nice if I could read... I have a huge TBR pile now, but nothing appeals to me. Basically, I'm having the same problem as Tara Marie, none of the book is screaming "READ ME! READ ME!" I hope to get my reading mojo back soon, cos I'm really getting bored. So far, I'm hesitating between three fantasy series: Archangel by Sharon Shinn, His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novak or Lord of Snow and Shadows by Sarah Ash.

Aside from that, there's the drepressing question about my future... what should I do? I'm considering taking a second job, a receptionist job. I've done it before during a summer and it's really a simple job, just answering the phone calls and transferring them from 4h30 to 9h30 p.m. I mean, this would earn me some extra money and I can still read while working, so it'd be good :D I've also applied to pharmacy school during the week-end and now, have to get all my transcripts and send them to the schools. I really hope to get in, but after being refused twice... but they say the third time's a charm, no? So I'm keeping my fingers crossed and knocking on wood. Then, at the same time, I guess I'm going to apply for something more permanent in case I don't get in pharmacy school... I hate looking for job and interviews and so on. argh.

Oh, before I forget, I'd like to ask a favor to whomever live in the States and is a big fan of Nora Roberts. As you might or might not know, 4 of Nora Roberts' novels have been turn into tv movies (Angels Fall, Montana Sky, Blue Smoke and Carolina Moon (?)) and they are going to be shown on TV 4 consecutive Mondays starting from next Monday (Jan. 29) on Lifetime... This is for the States only, apparently, Canada got the licenses, but they'll only be shown in the summer. So I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to tape it and send me a copy, please? It'd really appreciated it :P

Ah well, I'm going to stop here... and start writing some reviews...


  1. You're in school, right? Or you're about to be? If you're in school and you're working--and you don't really need the extra money right now--I would hold off on another job. I've worked two jobs before--one full-time, one part-time WHILE going to school---and it sucks. Big time. If you're not in school, and just need/want extra money, then why not? It seems like a receptionist wouldn't be too bad. I just hate working two jobs period.

    I'm currently reading Archangel. I've only read about the first 40 pages but so far I'm enjoying it. And I like the heroine so far too.

    Okay, I can tape the shows for you but you WILL have to remind me or else I'll forget. So email me like the night before and/or the night of and say something along the lines of: DC, get off your lazy ass and tape my damn shows! Is VHS okay? 'Cause I don't think my DVD has a recorder thingy...though I did just get a new one for my bday. Maybe it has a recording feature...Hmm...

  2. Hey DC,

    no I'm done with school... till September if I get accepted in pharmacy school. also, I've accepted the second job finally... it was just on Saturday's night... I thought that it'd be all right. The only thing I don't like is that I won't get to spend so much time with my sis, cos it's usually, our hang-out time every two weeks when my parents are out.

    I've finally started Archangel, I've decided to go with it :D hey, want to do a double review?

    As for the taping, thank you so much :D I'll remind you :P (If I don't forget myself ^^; ) Thanx a bunch!

  3. I am in the same boat with reading and reviewing. I have so many that i have read, ut I end up opting to continue reading instead of reviewing. I have a list going of books I need to review. That is why I ended up with my list for December. and i already have an ongoing list for January that i am not sure i will catch up with but I am trying to catch up, so I am starting to post again.

    Working while in school is hard, definitely. It would be great if you could get into pharmacy school, they make good money. But the receptionist job doesn't sound too bad and is it one where you could do homework while you are working if you needed to?

  4. I'm glad that you heard on the job. Interviewing basically took me from the workforce. I just couldn't do it anymore.

    Ain't being a Canadian grand? Too bad I'll be outside most of the summer to watch TV ;)

    Sending you super luck mojo your way on your pharmacist application!


  5. Kris - I'm happy you are going to start posting again :D Seriously, I'm wondering where everyone is! As for reviewing, I guess I'll try to make it up this week-end. I'm presently in a mini-reading slump. Can't seem to find anything that catches my attention :( I also hope that I'll get into pharmacy school, although it's going to be a couple of more years of study. As for the receptionist job, it's really easy and all... and it doesn't interfere with anything. By the way, I'm done with school (at least for the moment :P)

    Cindy - The receptionist job was easy to get. First, I've already work there in the past and then, they're pretty desperate looking for someone. Anyway, that's just on Saturday night tho... However, I have to look for a new job and apply very soon. i need something full time, permanent and with advantages (insurances, vacation and so on) and somewhere with a better atmosphere... because the politics at my current full-time job is killing me ^^;

    and of course, being Canadian is grand!
