I was thinking of you when I was standing in Barnes and Noble yesterday! If its similar to A Visit From the Goon Squad, then I will most likely hate it. A student that I work with has been bringing in some John Green books for me to read, they aren't bad. I'm doing well. I can't believe the school year is coming to an end. Right now, I have no definite plans for next year, I am looking but as you know, there's few jobs. What about you, any plans?
