May 2015 Month in Review \\ Let me try these cool slash things

So I didn't journal too much this month, but hey, I was busy, stressed, and tired. Also, this post is gonna be short! And, here's an Adventure of GW cuz y'all love those :D

So Celia Garth is a free ebook through my library!!!! YESSSS!!! WIN!!!! *attempts to do happy dance but can't dance* Cuz everybody is reading this now! But I read it first! Well 3/4 of it anyway...

The last two weeks of school were the slowest two weeks of school! UGH!!! But they're done, and I still have a 4.0! That means I could get into the college/university I want to go to right now!

Happy People, a new CD by my favorite group came out!!!

Duolingo released Esperanto, which has been my dream to learn!! (I could have learned it some other place, but I knew they were coming out with it and I like them so I waited) so if you have a Duolingo account, add me!! (ashleymperham)

My grandma is staying with us right now because my parents are on an anniversary cruise :D

I'm going to be volunteering at the library some this summer!

Annnnd I celebrated a one-year blogaversary!! Yay!! You can read that post HERE Thanks for all your questions!

Looking forward:
My SAT is on Saturday! Yay for practice tests!
Camp is next week!
Music camp is in two months!
Annnd the big book giveaway bonanza in two weeks! I should probably go see what books I have to give away :D

How was your May? Are you out of school? (Yes, I know you Australians/New Zealanders aren't...)


  1. Yay!!!! Well done Ash!! :D SO glad you received the grades you wanted/need!
    I find out in December... I am SO nervous..
    Hope your holidays go well! :-) Aww thanks for the mention.. yeah well I've entered final exams for the semester so am a bit stressed..
    Hope all is good! I need to email you about my new blog series

  2. Oh, my goodness gracious. THANK YOU for introducing me to Duolingo! I've been wishing for something like this forever! I need to brush up on my Spanish and would love to learn German and Gaelic (I think they have it on there as Irish?)

    Now I have to go look up what Esperanto is!

    I tried to look up the Happy People album, but it only brought up some R&B stuff. Haha! I'll have to search it again.

    Congrats on your grades! That's awesome!!!

  3. Have fun helping at the library! That's a fun job. :)
    Becca and I tagged you for an award!

  4. I'm getting so excited about the Great Book Giveaway Bonanza! How excited? I started writing my giveaway post last night and set up all the Rafflecopter widgets for it. Gonna be awesome!

    Best of luck on your SAT!

  5. Evie: Thanks! Oh I hope you get the grades you need! Good luck on your exams! I can't wait!
    Natalie: Duolingo is awesome isn't it! Oooh! You need to find Happy People! Thanks!
    Bethany: Thanks! Oooo yay! Thanks again :D
    Hamlette: Me too! I already set up my widget :D

  6. Nice post! The picture made me laugh! And it sounds like you have some great plans this summer. I would add you on Duolingo, but I don't use it much. :/ I wanted it to be awesome for me like it is for you, but I really wish they cared about all. It's mostly just word recognition, and language is more than semantics. But hey, lit major; I'm picky. This is probably why I have trouble learning other languages.

  7. Reading in the Dark: Thanks! I know Duolingo and Rosetta Stone both have that same issue. I figure that if I hear it spoken correctly through the whole course, plus pick up a little bit of extra stuff on different sites, I should be okay. But I know! I love learning exact stuff, so it's frustrating at times!


Many comments. Such wow. Much happiness. Very awesomeness. I know that's not entirely correct grammar, but that's how comments make me feel! Feel free to leave one expressing anything from what color shoes you're wearing to how much you disagree with my opinion :D
