Exams, (nearly) no Books and Awards

So my exams go on and on. Next weeks will be horrible. The last one is on Friday 7.August and I can't wait for this day to come. I think I have to neglect the blog a little bit to have enough time for learning. But I hope I can take a little time to pop in here and give a little heads-up. I think reviews have to wait...

After my exams I will finally have vacation time. I convinced my boss to give me two weeks of lovely vacation time starting in the last week of August. We don't where we will go but I think it will be great.

Reading goes on slowly. I'm still reading Branded by Fire and I love this book. It makes my inner kitty scream. I wish I had time to read more. Perhaps I can keep my vow and don't buy books till the time of asceticism is over. I bought two books this week but they were both for school and were as expensive as a normal month of book-buying with the little exception that this books suck real time and aren't in any way fun to read. So I decided they don't count. My nex´t read will be "City of Souls" by Vicki Pettersson and I'm very curious about this one. I loved this series so far and can't wait to learn more about Joanna Archer.

My little kitten is getting better. We brought her bandage to perfection by fixing it on her with the help of a trimmed sock. This helped with the scratching problem(she didn't stop and this bandage wasn't very durable against kitties claws). Now it heals really good. Perhaps next week we can free her.

I got three new awards this week. Hurray.

I got the Lemonade Award from
Shellie @ Layers of Thought.
The Lemonade Award is a feel good award that shows great attitude or gratitude. Here are the rules for accepting this award:
Put the Lemonade Award logon on your blog or post.
Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.

And I've got a second one from
Linda @ ~Bambi Reads~ : The Let's be friends award.
Blogs that receive the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and befriends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.

I've also got The Spread the Love Award from
Yvette @ True Crime Book Reviews.

I'm very happy about these awards but like I said before time is little precious in the moment so I have to postpone the nominating to next week.

So tonight I go to bachelorette's party and we willto a few clubs. I hope I can restrain myself enough so I will still be able to learn tomorrow. The wedding is next Sunday and I still need to make the present. We want to give them money but I hate it to just give them an envelope so I will do a little handicraft. I just need an idea and a little extra hours for the days till sunday.

So that's all so far on my site. Now I will reward us all with a little Hugh Jackman:

Yummy, can't wait for the holidays!!!

Hugz to all and have a nice weekend!

Congrats on the awards! Well deserved!

Glad your kitten is getting better, I do hate when any of my pets are sick or injured.

Ah, so you snuck a read in, huh? LOL! Well, I can understand that because with all of your exams and studying, you need something to keep you sane. Right?

Have fun tonight! Be safe. :D

Hope your exams fly by and you do very well on them :) And vacation! 2 weeks sounds awesome. I have 1 week off, and it still doesn't feel like enough.

I think I must catch up on Nalini's books...I want my inner kitty to scream ;)

Speaking of which, I'm glad your cat is doing better. Poor thing.

And congrats on your awards :)

Best of luck in your exams, Susi. Hopefully, you'll have plenty of time to read once they're over.

BTW, my word verification is 'retch'. I had to laugh as that's what I feel like doing at the mere though of exams!
