I did my first live radio show yesterday! Remember when I did an internship with a local radio station this summer? I have a show there now. It’s on every four weeks and I’m doing it with a friend of mine. If anyone happens to speak German (or wants to listen to some good music) you can listen to the show we did today for a couple more days. There were some slight technical errors the first couple of minutes
it was totally not my fault, but after that it went alright for our first show!
After the show I went to dinner with a friend I hadn’t seen in six months, and then I came home and amused myself by singing My Heart Will Go On really loudly (as one does). A few minutes later I realized my roommate was home after all and heard the whole thing. Naturally, I pretended to be on the phone, though I’m not sure why badly singing My Heart Will Go On to someone else would make it any less weird. Other than these exciting going ons, I have a lot of university stuff on my plate and will go and work on that now. Or, well, maybe tomorrow. You know the drill.
I used my amazon gift card to buy Illuminae, because everyone has been raving about it; Mistborn, because… well because everyone has been raving about it, and The Game of Love and Death, because Cait has been raving about it, but also because I love the idea of Love and Death being people (entities?) who spend their time making up bets.
I also got Sweetgirl by Travis Mulhauser and Sisi: Empress on Her Own as ARCs thanks to Harper Collins/Fourth Estate and Random House/The Dial Press. I took a bit of a risk with Sweetgirl, because it’s not something I’d search out at the bookstore, but I’ve already read most of it and I really like it! I’m not sure what to do with Sisi though. I requested it, because I LOVED the Sissi movies growing up, but then I realized it’s a sequel (it didn’t say on netgalley, but I could have checked goodreads) and I’m really not a fan of reading books out of order. Let me know if you have a solution to this world-shattering dilemma of mine.

Tune of the Week
I’m not sure if I’ve used this one before, but I’m too lazy to check. I found it on a playlist and instantly loved it.
