Spring Break!! And WonderCon!

It’s finally Spring Break!

I feel like I have been in school for ages. And okay, for sale it’s only been two months but I could really use this break. I’ve exams galore and papers and bleh. But it feels good now that I know I won’t have to go back to school until April 1st. Now if only this gloomy yucky weather would clear up and the beautiful California sun would come back out, nurse we would be super good!

But Spring Break I’d going to be awesome. I have a lot of things planned, or so it seems and it works out beautifully for me. My boyfriend has a different spring break than me (lame) so at least I can keep myself busy!

Tomorrow I’m heading out to an Andrew McMahon concert. Andrew was the frontman of my absolute favorite band, Something Corporate, and one of my other faves, Jack’s Mannequin. I saw him last during the Something Corporate reunion tour nearly three years ago so I’m very very excited about it. AND I don’t have to drive out to LA for it either, which is a win!

Then Friday is my epic day with Cassandra Clare! I’m going to her meet and greet event, where I get to interview her! I’m excited to meet her again and to fan girl with my sister and my fellow Shadowhunter friend and all around nerd, Jackie. And I’ll have a special surprise for all of you Cassandra Clare fan out there so keep an eye out for that!

Next week I still have to work but I love my job so that’s not even a problem. But in my spare time, I’ll be working on my outfits and such for WonderCon! Friday, I’m planning on going all Ravenclaw and Saturday I’m planning on being a Shadowhunter!

Saturday they’re having the City of Bones panel and they just announced that there will be autograph signings with Cassandra, Lily Collins (Clary Fray), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace Wayland) and Kevin Zegers (Alec Lightwood).

Sunday, I’m trying to see if I can make a whatanerdgirlsays shirt to advertise my blog for the day. I think it’s a good idea!

So come on by and see me during the con! Ill be at the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army table on Friday and you can tweet at me (@anerdgirlsays) and I’d be happy to hang out!

Oh and I got super cool calling cards for the blog and I can’t wait to hand them out!

It’s gonna be great!

Good News Everyone!

Sorry, ailment couldn’t help with the Futurama reference in the title. When you have a boyfriend who watches very little TV, drug except for Lakers basketball, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad and Futurama, you tend to have it rub off on you a little bit.

Anyway!

So today I woke up with the TOTAL Monday blues. I could NOT fall asleep for nothing last night, and I have class fairly early on Monday mornings AND I need to be wide away today because I need to read and finish Clockwork Princess tonight…and it was just bad. So when I woke up this morning, I was like UGH NO. If it weren’t for the fact    that I had a paper due today, I probably would have rolled right over and gone right back to sleep.

But the day started off really well. I was on my break inbetween classes and I decided to hit up a vending machine for some chips because I was hungry. I had that horrible moment when you think your chips are going to get stuck and then, voila! TWO BAGS! I know, such a small little thing. But it was a little thing and it made me pretty happy.

Then I went to art history class. We had a paper due today, and we were getting our exams back. We took our first exam last week and I was nervous about it. I seriously studied like crazy and I’m always good during a test, but afterwards, I’m a nervous wreck. I always do well, but you know, I’m a worrier so of course I was worried! Well, I got my test back and I got 100%!!!! I am seriously really proud of myself. School doesn’t come as easily to me as it did back in high school so sometimes I lack the confidence, especially since I’m 25 and I’m still not even close to being done with school. It was just another really awesome part of my day. This class isn’t easy so it was a nice accomplishment for me.

But then the most amazing thing in the world happened to me. I got out of class, and turned my phone back on and of course, it started blowing up with text messages and emails. Why is it that when you’re busy in class or work, that’s when everyone decides they need you? Its so weird…Anyway…

I got an email from the teen services librarian, Allison, over at the Mission Viejo Library. She’s the one that’s helped to put together a few of the events I’ve gone to, like Meg Cabot a few years back and Cassandra Clare a couple years ago. I was just there last week for the Lauren Oliver event that I wrote a blog post about it.

Anyway, there’s another Cassandra Clare event this Friday, where she’s going to be appearing along with Maureen Johnson and Sarah Rees Brennan. Of COURSE I am going :D And also the library had a contest. A contest for Cassandra Clare’s biggest. The winner gets to interview Cassie in her BADASS tour bus.

They also get a copy of Clockwork Princess, personally signed. Really super awesome. So anyway, I entered because, well, if you read this blog, you know that I am a HUGE Cassandra Clare fan. I talk about the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices all the time. I have an unhealthy obsession with Jace Lightwood…and Will Herondale. I WANT to be a Shadowhunter. I have a Fearless rune tattoo on my shoulder. I could go on.

And today I got the email that says I am the winner! I literally squealed! I was already on a happiness high from my exam score and this was just the cherry on top of an already super delicious sundae. I WORSHIP Cassie and I can’t wait to meet her and INTERVIEW her. And you, my lovely readers, will have completely access to that interview, of course! I can’t wait to see what her awesome tour bus looks like, and hopefully I’ll be able to get a picture with her, since the event is so huge that its expected that pictures won’t happen.

I also have a HUGE surprise for you readers that ties along with Cassandra Clare and her book release.

So today, while it started out with some SERIOUS Monday blues, ended up being a pretty awesome day. I am so so so so excited for my interview with Cassandra Clare on Friday and trust me, I’ll be sure to share it all with you guys!

Also, for those of you in Southern Californa unable to make Friday’s event, she will be at the City of Bones panel at WonderCon on March 30th and will also be appearing at the Los Angeles Festival of Books in mid April at USC. Hope to see you all there!
