All Aboard the Awesome Train!

Phew. It’s been a great/busy/frustrating/awesome week. My school inexplicably decided to have mid-terms after spring break (WTF?) but I’m happy to say that I live to tell the tale. Unfortch, this does not mean that I don’t have homework to do for my mid-term-free classes, so I can’t do the Happy Dance just yet.

That’s what she said.

Ahem. Anyway, at least I can say that the worst is over–two of my so-called midterms were basically four-page papers that I needed to write in the space of a freaking day. To those professors who would do such a thing (and at the same time, no less!) I call, “Shenanigans!” on the whole thing. Don’t you guys know I have a snarky blog to write? And YA books to read? And home-made goodness to sell on Etsy? Just sayin’, yo.

Why, then, are we on the Awesome Train right now? Well, as it turns out, this week I was happy to get some sweet lovin’ from not one, but two super-awesome bloggers responsible for some really hilarious YA snark. Shannon and Sadako were both kind enough to honor me with this little beauty:


Here are my own nominees. Maybe I’m cheating by nominating people who I already know have been nominated, but whatevs. I think they’re blogs rock, and I bet you will, too:

  1. Outpost Road (aka Shannon) from Shannon’s Sweet Valley High Blog.
  2. Sadako of Dibbly Fresh
  3. Longwinter at Like Pike
  4. Snappleaddict from Tales of a Former Walking Highlighter (posts can be sporadic, but I love her V.C. Andrews action)
  5. Colleenn at Big Orange Couch (sporadic updates, but a wonderful 90’s Nick recap blog)

    Thanks! I’m with Sadako. I can’t wait until you have time for some more snark!

    Ugh to four page papers and the professors who assign them. Bastards.

    Thanks, you guys! Seriously, this whole graduate school thing has really got to go… Now to figure out a way to get paid to blog snarky things… Hmm…
