This recap was requested by a few of my readers– I’ll be telling you what went down the past week, in and out of Flip That Page, and give you a sneak peek preview of sorts on what to expect for the week to come. Happy blogging! 🙂
ON THE BLOG
I shared ten of my favorite endings to Young Adult books.
I reviewed Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave.
I debated with my brother on series and stand-alones.
IN MY WORLD
I took the UPCAT (University of the Philippines College Admission Test). It was doable, but made me think. Which scares me. So wish me luck!
I discovered the little piece of heaven on earth that is a Quick Melt Cheese Sandwich. I now have a newfound appreciation for our oven toaster.
I took two hellish long tests consecutively– on one Physics, the other on Calculus. My brain had to reboot.
I failed the Calculus Long Test on Limits, and am genuinely scared for my future. Yes, my limit exists. Math professor, you deal with it.
I spend an hour dissecting the thoughts of my high school crush (who may or may not like me back). He seems to act all jittery around me, and his friends are giving me the smug “this one here? he likes you” looks. but he’s a boy so I can only hope to, but never will understand him.
