Stereotyping

 Homeschooling quips! xD


You Must Be Homeschooled If...
You have attempted to teach yourself physics.
Your favorite activity is reading. 
The only bully you ever run into is your big brother.
You don’t have to be entertained because you know how to use your imagination.
All you want for Christmas is a Barnes & Noble gift certificate. 
You'd rather buy books than clothes. 

Amen for the second to last one! That's all I want! I can get the DNT!
 

Short post. I'm not in a post mood now. When I'm not in a post mood, my posts are ranty, whiny, sarcastic, and clipped.

Lets see the stereotypes I'm under:
~Nerd/geek/fangirl(Ugh, I hate that word. I used it once, though.)

~Homeschooler(Come on guys! Homeschooling has gone a long way since the prairie days and is quite sophisticated now.)
~Teenager(We aren't all like that rude boy who pushed roughly past you in the parking lot! Or that bratty girl who spends 4 hours on makeup and hair and texts all the time! Most of us are nice!) (Except for that girl, the one who's constantly hungry today, torn between blogging and working on her NaNo novel, and sick from gulping down a whole cheese stick at once. Yeah, she's pretty nasty in moods like this.)
 ~Stupid, rich, text-happy Southern Californian teenager(A derivative of the above.)
~Christian
~Girl


1.) I don't spend ALL my time thinking about Star Wars, contrary to popular belief. I can intelligently discourse on other subjects. I STILL will not spend $15+  on any Star Wars shirt, toy or book.
2.) I have a life other than the one here(again, contrary to popular belief) I don't read Shakespeare for fun. I am interested in boys(Tiny bit! Just a tiny bit! I try to hide it. And no one ever knows.) I listen to pop music(Not really. It makes my ears hurt. But I do know who The Black Eyed Peas are.)
3 and 4.) I don't text, date, go to the mall(often, except I will go to the mall bookstore to get DNT! SO excited!) I am aware of suffering going on in the rest of the world. I've been on more than one international mission trip. I can hold a reasonable conversation with adults. I can. I can.

5.) I'm a Christian. I refuse to drink, smoke, or even date. That doesn't mean I'm completely opposed to fun. I just have fun in a way that honors God. (I had a bit of alcohol once accidentally in a Vietnamese restaurant where I couldn't understand what I was ordering. Come on! That's your idea of FUN????? It was disgusting!)
6.) I enjoy this stereotype. I'm not a feminist. I enjoy being a lady. So I won't complain about this.

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.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
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
Similarities:
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.

Ahem.


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…
