#ISTE13, Dumb MacBookPros, & #IMWAYR

Headed downtown tomorrow morning and I'm so excited! Well. Excited and a bit nervous. I always want to talk to people and then get tongue tied. Which is so silly. I'm never in the middle of the spectrum ... either talking too much or way too little.

I love this pic. Doesn't have anything to do with the post but I loved it.

Yesterday I had made an appointment to talk to someone from Apple about my ridiculous MacBook. I have googled until I can't Google anymore ... the spinning pinwheel of death, SLOW everything (internet and programs), and constant crashing of anything Flash is really getting on my nerves. (Machine is 3 years old in October ... bought it after the break in.) But I took a bit of a nap (rotten headache and ... um ... well, forgot to ever turn the ringer volume on my phone back up after the movie Friday night) and slept right through it. Oops. So maybe won't be taking the Macbook with me. If it's anything like TCEA the connection speed will be rubbish there AT the conference anyway.

And even though my computer is stupid slow I just paid for Pixa to try and control the chaos of a clip art habit. It's not working exactly as expected but we'll see. #thingsIdothatdontmakesense

Added a feedly button to the sidebar. Bloglovin was already there. As was FB and email. #countdowntotheendofGoogleReaderissevendays

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read the previous week and to plan out your reading for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading.

Our Kid Lit to YA version is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts.
GREAT IDEA! Check out all of the What Are You Reading? participants for title ideas.

And ... I am not keeping up with my #bookaday. Only two books finished last week. Got further along in several others.

Darkest Minds took me longer than I would have thought. Finished The Runaway King in a day. Something so embarrassing ... apparently I have lost a library book. Like I would have SWORN I returned it because I cannot find it anywhere. But they checked their shelves. Rats.

Next week? House of Secrets. And finishing Note and Notice, the Nat Geo poetry book, and the Floors audio book ... had to stop it a couple times because of discussions of duck vomit (I kid not) that were just grossing me out. Otherwise I <3 pretty much anything Patrick Carman does!

Didn't get very far in Proxy (from last week) before the E-ARC timed out. Will have to try that one again. But I AM going to get to Book four in the Shadows series (Jacqueline West) cause they are fun!



  1. Our public library doesn't have Darkest Minds and I just can't bring myself to buy it... although I would love to read it! Love the cover!

  2. You can redownload, at least from Netgalley. I like anticipating reading the new Sonnenblick that I let it time out! Made sure I read it right away!
