I'm Still Alive...

Right?  *checks pulse*  Oh yeah, false alarm-- I'm definitely still alive, no worries.  So where have I been these past two months?  Actually, I've been doing a lot of reading...
And this would be fantastic, of course.  If the stacks of books I've been pouring over didn't have titles like Ultimate SAT Study Guide and Test Preparation, Introduction to Human GeographyWriting Your Perfect College Essay, and let's not forget Spark Notes.  Yep, school is officially in session and it's the dreaded senior year.  Thankfully, I've also had the chance to crack the spines of a few non-school related page-turners which I can't wait to review once I finally snag the time.  The Graveyard Book, The Good Fairies of New York, Haunting Violet, Game of Thrones, and even my old favorite Interview with The Vampire have been gracing my desk alongside the boring stuff, keeping me semi-sane. And let's not forget a couple of Halloween-related posts which I'm just dying to write...

All of you who haven't given up on this blog and have even popped in for a few visits (I was truly touched and astounded by how many people have despite my total lack of activity)-- I'd like to thank you a billion times over!  You guys are awesome; you're why I love blogging so much.  More than anything else, I miss reading and commenting on your reviews and posts about what's going on in the blogging world.  With any luck I'll be able to do a bit of that very soon, once college applications are in, and I hope to see all of you around.

Glad your back! I thought you were kidnapped by aliens or something. But yeah, school, especially senior year can be crazy. Can't wait to see some reviews, when you get the chance. Glad your back and well!

Oh, Kat, it's so good to finally hear from you!! YAY!!!!!! I was beginning to wonder....although I did have the nagging suspicion that your absence was somehow school-related. I'm glad you've confirmed my little theory, and that your absence had nothing to do with anything more serious than studying and preparing for college! (I wish you all the best in that endeavor!!)

So glad you're back!!!! I've been missing you and your wonderfully-written, thoughtful reviews, as well as your funnier posts!! Give us all a heads up next time, girl,, will ya?

LOTS of blog love to you!! : )

@Valen-- Ha, I wasn't kidnapped by aliens, only a bunch of AP teachers. They forced me to read books with literary merit. It was horrible. ;) I have to catch up on your blog-- I've missed reading everyone's posts so much!

@Maria-- Sorry for the lack of a heads-up! I submitted most of my college applications last night, so now I'm free as a bird... well, freer than I was, anyway. Can't wait to see what I've missed on your blog, either.

Thanks for the warm greetings, guys! I was worried everyone had forgotten about me and my little blog. :)

Good luck with all that senior year stuff - it can be so stressful! I hope it all goes well for you. Don't forget to have a little fun, too :)

I love that photo!

Kat said...

@Lisa-- So do I! Looks like a good way to spend an afternoon (or a whole year) to me. :)

I've been wondering where you went, but as you can tell by the lateness of this comment, I've been pretty busy myself! I'm glad I never had to take the SATs. Good luck to you and we'll all be here when you get back to regular blogging!

Hi Kat. Sorry you're so bogged down with SAT stuff. I know you'll do well. I'm glad you are back reviewing a little - read your 10-16 review! You are so talented. I can't find a good book lately!!! I need a "Halloween Read" review from you girl.
