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 secondary characters.
My brother and I held a debate on zeroes versus heroes.
I participated in Jamie’s Bookish Senior Superlatives.
IN MY WORLD
After a much deserved break, I greeted an old friend once more this week. School! As such, I had little to no time to add new posts to the blog, because many of my teachers required make-up exams and classes. Needless to say, this week was nothing short of hellish.
I injured myself for the first time. I fell down a short flight of stairs after practicing for a dance number with my crew, and because none of the lights were on, and I was too scared to grope around for the switch, I missed one of the steps and dislocated my ankle. Oh well. At least I’ve gotten better– however, I’m taking precautionary measures just to make sure I can make that number after all. Wouldn’t want to waste all that effort!
My mom allowed me to attend the Manila International Book Fair. Color me thrilled, you guys! I cannot wait to get to meet my fellow Filipinos, and co-bloggers. If any of you are coming and would like to meet me, I’ll be willing to give you my number, so we won’t have to hunt each other down. If you’re not into that, then just look for a petite girl with medium length hair and braces, toting a black shoulder bag, and walking around in heels. That’s probably me 😀
