my mid-term results.
so lately i've received my mid-term results! and the scores are beyond my expectation! i'm very happy (≧◡≦) even the ones that i'm not really sure of got good marks. thanks God for that :) even though there is a particular one which i don't do very well; but i'm still thankful enough about the others. i'm trying harder for the semester exam, to fulfill my goal: increasing my GPA.
i've made some changes on the blog (which i'm really happy about) ◔◡◔
1. the picture under the "the bookielooker" title will take you back home when clicked.2. i changed the "affiliates" part, links to my twitter, facebook, tumblr, colourlovers, and goodreads :)3. there's also my wishlist widget on the sidebar now! in case any of you want to buy me books (✿◠‿◠). you can also go to my goodreads by clicking "Stefanie's Favorite Books"
i'll probably make more changes in the future. especially the TAGS part.
well, so here's what i'm reading at the moment:
i honestly have to say that this book has a very long title :| but anyway, it's Dale Carnegie! :) sometime ago, i read Dale Carnegie's translated version of "How to Win Friends and Influence People". it was a very great and motivating book with lots of things to learn about. i instantly become a fan of Dale Carnegie and collected all of his books. so now i'm going to read this one; i hope it's as good as the first one i read (or even better!) :)
this is the blurb on the back of the book:
