Back to School Book Blogger Challenge – Day 1

Posted August 18, 2014 by Emily in blog challenges / 10 Comments


Today is the first day of school sorry I mean the Back to School Book Blogger Challenge hosted by Rachel @ Parajunkee. Classes (I mean the challenge) takes place over the course of nine days. And you can see the lesson plan below to learn more about what we will be learning / teaching on each day.


A little info about me

I feel like I’m going to end up saying basically the same thing I say every time I’m asked to “introduce myself” so I’ll be brief. If you want to learn more about me there’s more stuff you can read on my about page. But anyways… I’m Emily, but most people here in the blogoshere know me as Emz. It’s a nickname that I don’t actually use in real life but took for the sake of being about to distinguish myself from all the other Emily’s out there. I’m a rising junior (11th grader) in a high school in the USA, so this back to challenge is a bit too close for comfort – my school starts again September 3rd. Only a few more weeks of “freedom” left! :'(

My friends (in real life, whatever that is) say I’m friendly, sarcastic, and sometimes sassy, but sometimes my mom thinks I’m mute and antisocial, so I don’t know what to tell you guys. Ummm, I like reading (duh) and books (obviously). Besides the obvious, I also like baking, photography (sort of), arts and crafts, watching Teen Wolf (don’t judge, it’s a really good show; the name is deceiving) and puzzles / problem solving. I have an interest in web design and creating graphics in Photoshop, but those are both skills I’m working on. I don’t really like doing homework and studying for the SATs, but those are both things that I have to do and put up with for the sake of my future (even if they take time away from blogging). Okay, so I said I would be brief, but another thing about me – I have the ability to ramble and get off topic… So yeah, that’s me! 🙂

Tell me about yourself.

    • Hi Terri! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 And to answer your question, no, I am not ready for school to start. I wish summer would last a bit longer. 🙁

    • Hi Rachel, nice to meet you. I guess I should be thankful my school doesn’t start in August but… Thank you for hosting such a cool challenge and stopping by! 🙂
