Last nap in my Atlanta studio before we head to Nashville tomorrow! 😴
Charleston, SC by Alice Gao
looking up award certificate designs for a coworker right now and saw an award for books which suddenly reminded me of…
battle of the books.
i don’t know if this is a nationwide thing (just googled—i think it is), but it was a huge thing at my elementary school. fourth graders would receive a list of 20 books they had to read for the year and then towards the end of the year they had to take a test on the books. the four (or five?) highest scoring students in each class got to be on the battle of the books team for their class.
i looooved battle of the books. i was the first person in my class to finish all 20 books and i got awards for finishing all of the books and being the first to finish. we made paper chains hanging from the ceiling above our desks and each time we finished a book, we got to add to the chain. i was so proud of myself when i finished mine. i think i was the first or second person to turn in my test and i got to be on the team for my class! i was devastated when our team lost in the school wide competition and didn’t get to advance to the county level one. i remember coming home and crying in bed.
ah, battle of the books… good times.
side note: i’ve been reading more lately! mainly on commutes, but i’ve finished three books in the past few weeks. excited to read more. :)
LOL this right here is how i started loving jimmy fallon so much
…Lord, I feel it. Prone to leave the God I love.…Here’s my heart, oh, take & seal it. Seal it for thy courts above.
This makes me want a tattoo
