So, since the first two days of classes are over, I decided it was time for a summer roundup. Over the summer, I kept a list on the "Extended Info" box on Facebook of books I've read, movies I saw in theaters, and places I'd been. I may have missed a couple of items, but it's a pretty good summary of my summer. Since I'm going to remove those items from Facebook soon, I thought I'd post them here.

Quite a full summer!
bookaddict88: ('Tis the Season)
I've really been enjoying my Christmas break, which is about half over already.  I went to San Francisco with my friends Amanda and Jennifer (just one of my high school friends with the same name as me. Surprisingly, I don't know many people at my college with that name.) for a week, and had a blast. The trip wasn't cheap, but hey, after finals, I was ready to splurge! Also, we did find cheap plane tickets, so we didn't have to spend time and money with driving and parking.  We didn't even have to rent a car or anything, since public transportation is so easy and didn't cost all that much, especially since we bought a weekly pass for the muni.  And the hotel was right on Fisherman's Wharf, too, so we were able to walk to Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square, etc.



So yeah, I had a great Christmas.  Tomorrow, my family and I head out to a hotel for two nights just for fun.  We do that occasionally, as a cheap and quick vacation.  It's not too far, but it's a pretty nice hotel, and we'll get to do some shopping. No free internet access, but I guess I'll survive without it. ;-)

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

I just saw a trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian here. It looks SO good. I can't wait to see the movie!!!

I hope they don't change too much, though. This was one of my favorite books. It's inevitable that there'll be some changes made, of course, and I hear they're adding a bunch of stuff since the action-filled part of the book is so short. But I just hope the basic themes, story lines, and overall feel stay the same.  I was VERY satisfied with the first movie, and I hope this one is as good or better. From the trailer, it does LOOK amazing...did I mention I can't wait to see this movie? (Though why is Caspian so old??? And what's the White Witch doing there (well, frozen in ice, but still...)? They mention bringing her back in the book, but they never actually do. And I hope they don't in the movie, because it would just be changing things TOO much, I think.) But I guess I'll have to wait until May to see if it's as great as I'm hoping for.  I hate waiting.  Blah...
