Everything Happens @ Once.

Wicked. Wicked. Busy.

Ekkk! I have been all over the place the last so many days. I have completed 3 out of 5 of my fantasy football drafts. They went okay. Two of them took foreverrrrrr, and if you've done a draft before you know how frustrating this can be. The two I have left are probably the most important ones because one is my family draft. We all know family are some of the worst and best people to compete against. Can you say bragging rights? I have to redeem myself because last year, my whole team decided to get injured, which is turn ruined my fantasy season. So you can say I have a lot to prove this year. And the other draft I have is my work draft. Which consist of my bosses, co workers, and the regulars who frequent the sports bar that I work at. I won this league last year, but this year we have some new people and a new commissioner. I have to defend my title, which is a good amount of pressure to say the least. No one has won back to back years, but I intend to be the first. I'd like to mention the fact that I am also the lone female in this league. Now I have never done this many leagues at once before, so it is going to be quite the challenge for me this year. Hopefully, I can win all my money back and it will all be worth it. I am way to competitive, maybe I should learn to say no, or not care as much? But I can't. I feel the need, the addiction, the compulsion to compete and win. I'm sure the fact that: I grew up living with my dad, watching him play fantasy football every Sunday with him teaching me the ropes, didn't help my obsession. All this researching players, and going to drafts has really consumed my time this week. 

I have the worst luck ever when it comes to cars. I just got my car back from the garage, recently and knew I had a few things wrong with it. Then the other day I wake up to go run errands, and lone behold, there is a giant crack on my wind shield. COME ON. I just can't catch a break. Now most people have this covered by their insurance. So I call mine, and of course it is not covered. UGH! I called a couple places to get some quotes and apparently, my kind of car, Hyundai, is a pain to put in a new wind shield, so its one of the most expensive to fix.  Like seriously? So I am looking at over 200$ for a stupid piece of glass. You can say I am not to happy. So I have been picking up as many shifts at work as possible to try to make the extra cash to fix this.

School also starts next week which means I have to pay for my text books, I went online to check to see how much this tab was going to run me this semester and OMG its going to be like 800$. This is on top of my tuition. Apparently I should write text books because they are so flipping expensive.  So to say I have a lot of expenses this month is an understatement. And of course I haven't been able to pick up as many shifts as I need because everyone else is low on money as well.

On top of all that jazz, I've had doctors appointments. I have Eczema. Which is a skin issue that is extremely itchy. I had to go for a psychical just so I could get a referral to go to the dermatologist.  It is all time consuming and a pain in the ass. But I just cannot take the itching and the pain anymore. It is driving me insane.

Then since the summer is on its last leg, it means many of my television shows are wrapping up for the season so I have been trying to catch up and watch everything and watch the finales. Now I know many of my shows are stupid and many people must think they are not important but to me they're a guilty pleasure. Big Brother. Pretty Little Liars. Master Chef. Under the Dome. ect.

So that is why I haven't been on here much as of late. I have been pulled in every which direction. I have done some reading, not as much as I would like. But I just haven't had time to come on here and mention it. so I guess I should probably update everything now. This day off, is going to consist of a lot of catching up on the computer. Blogging, checking emails, updating status's ect.

Finally to get to the books.

Last time I mentioned how I started the Brie After Graduation Series by Red Phoenix. Well I finished up to what is published. I am addicted. I love them. They are quick short reads, but man oh man do they pack a punch. Like I said before, there isn't much I can say on here that isn't for the eyes and ears of the 18+ crowd. But I will say this: they get your blood pumping. You quite possibly could get off just reading them. Not to mention, you can pull some erotic ideas to use in your sex life from this series. I enjoyed them so much I decided to go back and read the first series about Brie. Which you can buy in one book instead of nine separate. It is titled Brie Learns the Art of Submission. One of the reasons I enjoy these is because they are put into short stories where, it makes it easy to stop and start reading them. I am currently on story 2 in this book.

I am about half way through Ethereal Knights from Addison Moore, which I love but its hard for me to get through because I already know what happens. Yes I love the fact that it is from Logan and Gage's point of view instead of Skyla. But the only negative thing is, I have so many books I am trying to rush through, that this book is tending to get put on the back burner.

I did however start and finish The Solitude of Passion by Addison Moore. This book and I have a love/ hate relationship. I loved the book, then I hated the book, then I loved it again. It was back and forth and back and forth. It demands that you keep reading it. It demands that you choose a side. Over all I would recommend it because its different. I feel like you can easily place yourself in the situation, and it is easy to feel sympathy for the characters. Its not your average book. There are twist and turns. It really makes you emotional. I found myself, just as upset or as mad as the characters. Very well thought out.

I am still working on Enduring Light from Alyssa Rose Ivy, Fight or Flight by Jamie Canosa, the Percy Jackson series, The Binding, and The Mortal Instruments series.

Lastly, I decided to RE-READ Defiance by C.J. Redwine because the new book came out and I read the first one so long ago I feel as though I might forget some major details. I also am going to RE-READ The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson for the same reasons. I am excited for these two new books so I am hoping I can get through these re-reads quickly.

And all of this together makes for one very very busy Brittany.

Is anyone else feeling the pressure of the end of summer?!?!
