The End

Well, its' been a long trip. Thanks for following me through it! I started with one follower(myself) and I now have 9. I have the wonderful challenge of keeping you all entertained. :) Some side notes.

When you're on a mission trip, nothing refreshes you more than a nice cold Coke. That's why I asked Barbara to (please) buy me one at the gas station, since I was broke. Barbara, good soul, kindly brought it to me just as our cars were pulling out.
Little did I know that we would be stuck in the worst traffic jam of my life....we took about 4 hours to cross the border, moving at the lovely rate of about an inch a minute..on the highway.

Let's just say that I really regretted that Coke...
If you've been following from the beginning, you'd remember that I told you that our San Diego-Tijuana crossing border is the busiest in the world. Yup.  What was entertaining was watching the street vendors try to sell you everything from statues to ponchos to ice cream.

The pace was really frustrating, because we'd see something interesting(Look! A Staples store!) And then, an hour later, we'd look back and see it, right behind us. (Hey! Didn't we pass that an hour ago! Darn...) So we inched by, and when we finally saw the immigration thing it was like the prettiest sight in the world.

My dad, looked out the window and began taking photos of the border. A guy came up to us and told us to stop or he would take our camera away, no time wasted on politeness. I'm glad he didn't make us delete the photo. Here it is.

One side says Mexico, the other says US. I love visible borders! (turns and looks over my shoulder at Janelle, who is sitting in the back. "How's it like back in Mexico?")

Sawyer and Andrew(nicknamed Ponchito by me, because he bought the poncho from the street vendors.)
I want to thank all my loyal followers for following me through my trip. Without you I would surely have been discouraged from blogging. This is not the end, and I hope to keep you as I blog about other things. Thank you for all the wonderful comments.
I want to thank in particular:
Madeline(aka AIOfreak): You were my first (real) follower. I love your comments, your blog, and your heart to serve Jesus. God Bless!
Ali: You're my writing(and life) friend and mentor. Thanks for being a great friend.
Ira, Jemimah: I love your blogs and your spirits. Let us walk through life(and Blogspot) together.
Migillicuty: Someone who I have pretty much EVERYTHING in common with. May the Force be With You
Yu and His teaching. H_T, I love your blog. Guys, I don't really know either of you very well, but unknown followers are just as loved as known ones. (Look! Someone likes what I write and isn't following just to be nice! (no offense)).
I also thank all of you who read but don't have a Blogspot to follow me. Get a blog!

God bless you all,


  1. Awwww! Totally Happy-making! (50 points if you can place that book quote) :)

    May the Force be With You, and the odds be EVER in your favor!

(fangirl flapping of arms and running around in circles) (eee) (ignore this)(spoilers for Son of Neptune)

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.

This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
