In My Mailbox (4) and Olympics


Hey everyone! Sorry for not being online for awhile. I've been really busy and out of town particiapating in a Model UN conference. So I haven't had the time to read or write reviews. Sorry ^^ But this week, I was able to get tons of books from the library because all the books I put for hold came in and I'm so excited to start it.

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie.

This is quite a lot of books I'm going to have to start and finish reading, which is going to be challenging to do since school is already starting this week after that second "winter break" and wanting to watch the Olympics....
I started watching the 2010 Olympics from the opening ceremony and I absolutely cannot wait to watch more short track speed skating and figure skating. What sports do you follow in the Winter Olympics?
I watched the first day of short track speed skating with Apollo Ohno and J.R. Celski (whom I developed a soft spot). Even though I am very happy for Team USA to win two medals I didn't really think it was really a competition with the two Koreans tripping and falling at the last second. I feel sooo bad for the two Koreans and also Ohno and Celski got a lot of luck because they weren't even close to the first place Korean skater. But, kudos to them! I also love watching figure skating, but particularly I'm watching the Korean figure skater, Kim YuNa and cannot wait to see her perform!
