So this post is a huge personal update, including some stuff about So You Think You Can Dance season 8.
First off, summer has arrived! As most of my readers know, I’m in high school – I took my last exams today and now I’m free for a few months. Not free, exactly…
I want to be active this summer, so here are some of my plans:
– Volunteer at my local library a couple hours every week (like I’ve been doing)
– Catch up on my reading, keep up with my goal to read 100 books this year
– Volunteer as a CIT (Counselor-In-Training) at a day camp for young children for two weeks
– Participate in a tennis camp for two or three weeks, and stay in shape through running the rest of the summer
– Study for the SAT, especially math
– Write more blog posts, short stories, and possibly start a novel
– Enjoy my cruise trip that will take place in late July
-… and more! Summer homework, hanging out with friends, etc.
This blog reached 10,000 views a couple of days ago, so thank you so to all my subscribers and commenters for the support as well as those who just drop in to read a post or two. It’s really appreciated. This blog has served as a special and fantastic way to express myself, my opinions, and share what I think about a myriad of subjects.
Finally, So You Think You Can Dance season eight is underway! SYTYCD is literally the only television show I watch, and I always enjoy cheering for my favorites as they rock the dance floor (and imitating them… poorly). Lady Gaga is going to make an appearance as a guest judge later on in the season – I’m looking forward to the constructive criticism she’ll give the contestants. Here are my two current favorites of season eight:
What are your plans for the summer? Anything noteworthy? Also, if you watch So You Think You Can Dance, who are your favorite contestants this season?

Congrats on the 10k milestone! I really enjoy reading your posts. Your plans sound wonderful. My plans when I was your age didn’t really exist (I shan’t bore you with tales of my wasted and misspent youth though :P)
This summer I’m going to: finish, edit and query my second novel.
make a reading list and stick to it.
take my family on holiday and play on the beach 🙂
Thank you. 🙂 I know a lot of people who don’t plan their summers and spend them in whatever way they find appropriate at the time – living day by day, I suppose. Do tell if you wish, it’s always interesting to hear an adult reflect on their youth. 😉
Your second novel? Do you mind sharing the title of your first one? I’ll check it out. And ditto on the reading list – the beach is a great place to read, too.
I’m not published Thomas, just aspiring! My first novel is now ahem, retired. If you’re interested in the details, you can check out my blog
I generally blather on about writing 🙂
Jeez, you’re getting a lot of views! Good job 🙂
By the way we need to hang out soon, but I have no idea how….
Not too many views, I’ve been at it for four-five months so… but it’s not bad, either, I guess.
Agreed! We shall study strenuously together! … or do random stuff at the mall, or watch movies, or just dance. Something like that.
woww, so many viewss! you’re famoussss O_O
ohhhh, btw, I am really excited to watch that. You know that there is a korean “dance” thing thats like a copy of this LOL. (what is with korea and them copying america?)
yeahhh….so. okayyy byeeeeee
I’m not famous, not by a long shot. But thanks for the compliment! (I hope it was a compliment… ha ha)
We should discuss “So You Think You Can Dance” together! I’m not surprised that there’s a Korean version, not after I saw a Vietnamese version of “American Idol”… 🙂
Talk to you later!
