Book Covers.

GAH!! Where do I begin?!

It's like the beginning of the Snuggie Commercials only it's with book covers. "Book Covers they slip they slide they're nearly impossible to get a grip on!" I abhor them. Completely abhor them. I always have to take them off and then I forget where I put them. Then, they get bent, ripped, and wrinkled. This too infuriates me. Everything about the darn things just irk me to no end.

I recognize that if I publish a book one day it could possibly be in hard-cover with the book covers, but why would I ever want to put anyone through that kind of misery? I'm not that cruel! No matter what people have been telling you.

Book Covers. No, just no.

Christmas Carols

There’s something about the radio stations that normally play music I like (ex. 80s) playing Christmas Carols really really gets on my nerves. I’ll turn on the radio expecting Journey and instead I get a butchered version of Silent Night! Even if it’s not a bad version of the song it’s still not what I thought I was getting into. It’s like with food. It’s like Fritos are good, but if you’re expecting fine cuisine it is just frustrating.

And now for the bomb-shell. I don’t really like most Christmas Carols. *gasp* They have weird lyrics and disturbingly long held notes. It’s just not pleasing to the ears. I’m not saying all are bad. Just the vast majority of them.
98.5 I give you clearance you do it every year, but everyone else: PLAY THE STUFF I WANT…

No matter how much I’ve been trying to persuade myself that I’m not, I just have to accept the fact that I’m spending my college fund on books. The first minute I scrounge up just enough money to buy a book I’m already scouring amazon or trying to convince my mother to drive me to one of the few remaining book stores in town. It isn’t like I’m deluding myself or anything. I know I’m doing it and I just can’t stop. I’ll walk into the book store and that’ll be the end of that. I’m leaving with a book if it kills me. One does not simply leave the bookstore without a fresh book in hand.

Books are like a drug to me. The old book smell, oh yeah. You can seriously get high off that stuff. I’m sure if you waited long enough you would see me walking furtively over to my bookshelf, pulling one out, flipping through its pages, and inhaling like there is no tomorrow.

It worries me that once I’m out of the house, can drive, and have a steady income I’ll still be living out a pathetically meager existence because I’ll be spending all my dough on the precious pulp. And what’s more you won’t be able to move around in my house! I’ll have my own A&E special: Confessions of a Book Hoarder. Ohh… I can see it know…

I need to spend more time at the library.

Disease and Holiday Cheer

So for about 4 days I've been sick with something that is causing my tonsils to swell to unimaginable sizes and my nose to just stop functioning. Sooo... I've been doing a whole lot of nothing. Mostly I've been lying around going on Youtube and Memebase, watching cheesy romantic comedies, hacking/ nose-blowing, and staring at myself in the mirror wondering how come my hair only looks that good when I'm about to take a shower or not going to see anyone for days. So far it hasn't been enjoyable.

My Girl Scout buddies came over yesterday and I was so desperate for company I was hopping up and down even in my state of disease. And because I love them dearly I had to print out pictures of skulls and crossbones and label everything I came into contact with.

So right now I'm living for those moments when I haven't already heard that hilarious Stephen Wright quote on Youtube and the anticipation of many presents in my near future.

Happy Holidays!

People walking into conversations at awkward moments
That really great comeback you thought of during the argument
The sound of rain
Reading a good book while it's warm inside and raining outside
Sitting on the porch while it rains
The smell of old books, vanilla, a dewy morning
Having a day where you just constantly smile
That A-HA! moment
Making name combinations that sound cool and mean something
The Powerpuff Girls theme song

It's been a while...

The title says it all. It's certainly been a while. In fact a year and 6 days so I've decided to write a blog entry filling in as many of the wholes as possible in a brief and concise manor! :)

I'm actually in 8th Grade now! It's going okay, I got Mr. Sell again (YES!)and I have probe math AHHH!!! All of my teachers are really fabulous this year. Unlike last year with a certain demon math teacher! It was a great academic year for me, though. I'm going to miss my Language Arts teacher tons. I didn't like her in 6th Grade, but I really grew to love her in 7th.

We went to Utah and Colorado mainly. In Utah we made really awesome glass flowers, met LOADS of family, and had an all around fantastic time along with great tidings of Hostess Snowballs! <3
In Colorado we went to Mesa Verde a stop we did the last time we were there, but wasn't really explored to the extent it was this time around. We got to see some really fascination cliff dwellings left behind and learn a lot about the native people.

Later we stayed at some of my Dad's friend's house. It was great and they took us Horse-back (cleaning, grooming, leading) riding and Aaron and I got to hold a baby horse. Literally, we got to hold it in our arms!
Friends~ Last year I made a bunch of new friends: Samantha, Savannah, Taylor, and more! It was an awesome year for me! :D Still besties with Lydia, Sabrina, and Julia of course. And keeping in touch with Taia, Meghann, and Brenna.

Book~ Gah! So many! If you really want to know look at my Shelfari.
~~~ So yeah Toodles~~~

No more cave kissing!

Okay, so recently in many of the "popular" books I've been reading( Hunger Games, Maximum Ride, etc) They've had two of the main characters fall in love. Of course since I really did not like these books they had no character development and they're first kisses were in a cave. I don;t know why, but it is really annoying me because they shouldn't be in love! well, they can have a crush on each other, but really kissing in a cave. It's a bit serious don't you think? rawr. NEVER believe the hype kiddies.

--------Book Reviews------

The Hunger Games: There are many things that turn be into a giant squid of anger this book would be one of them. I only found one character deep. There was no real suprises. The main characters made me made and the only sweet character got speared. Hm... 2 stars?

The 13th Reality: The Journal of Curious Letters: So creative and fun! You might want to keep a journal to find out the riddles along with Tick! Each character was deep and funny. I found the blend of fantasy and science fiction totally enjoyable. A great read. 4 1/2 stars plus there wasn't a single cave kissing scene in the entire 508 pages! Whootus Whootus!

-------7th Grade------

it's definitely going to be more challenging than any other grade mostly because the amount of homework. And NO time after school to breath much less get anything done. I'm liking most of my teachers even My language arts teacher. The only real exception to this rule is My Math teacher who calls on you for doing nothing. if you look away from her for a second she will yell at you for not paying attention. If you cough she glares at you! A significant change from my 6th Grade Math teacher who was the most amazing math teacher the world has ever known! Long Live Mrs. Chen!
