Rewind & Review #45

Rewind & Review

I have felt insanely busy these last few weeks. Being a sophomore is definitely very different than being a freshman. As you can see, I haven't read nearly as many books as I normally do.
But I also have some very exciting news to share. I'm going to be the assistant stage manager for my university's Sophomore Musical (which is the Big Thing for the sophomores). I'm super excited that I'm going to be involved behind the scenes in such an important way, and I can't wait to tell y'all about it as I go through rehearsals. This does mean I'm probably going to drop back on my number of posts per week, though. My homework load is so intense now, and I need to keep my job, and I really want to do well at being the assistant stage manager. I promise I won't completely drop off the face of the earth though!
