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.

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…

Anime, Fruits Basket, and Crushes on Fictional Characters

from left to right: Kyo, Shigure(top), Tohru(holding cat), and Yuki.

I recently started watching my first anime EVER, Fruits Basket(フルーツバスケットFurūtsu Basuketto?).
Here is the summary:
After the death of her mother, young Tohru Honda has been secretly living on her own in a tent. Her life changes forever when she stumbles upon the secret of the Sohma family, whose land she has been living on. They are afflicted by a Hereditary Cursethat changes some members of the family into animals of the Eastern Zodiac when they are hugged by someone of the opposite sex that is not also a Zodiac member.
Now living with three of the Sohma family, every day is an adventure for sweet Tohru, as she gets to know all of the very different family members better, in both common and bizarre situations. But, the Sohma family curse is certainly no laughing matter...it also holds horrible cruelty and heartbreak. Despite this, the members of the Sohma family find a new peace thanks to the presence of Tohr…

the hunger games pre-movie post

Mostly a bunch of gifs/pics/vids in tribute(haha, see what i did there? Tribute?) to the ginourmous Hunger Games fandom. I criticize it all the time, but hey, the series is good XD.

And besides, the new Dance Moms episode is taking forever to load.

I've been preparing for the movie by watching an appropriate amount of behind the scenes, interview, and released clip vids as well as parodies. And can I just say Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson might be my two new favorite celebrities. I've seen Josh Hutcherson in two movies before, Bridge to Terabithia and RV.I still can't believe it's the same guy. He's so funny XD
