Yay! Party!

I won! I can't believe it! I haven't done any schoolwork and haven't left my computer since seven in the morning, but I WON NaNoWriMo! They've certified me endless bragging rights, and I will use them, believe me.

50k! I can't believe it! All the stress is totally worth it! Of course, I have a lot of editing to do, but who cares??????

Proof:



See! I'll be posting excerpts, maybe, and maybe even the whole thing, soon.


My lovely winners certificate!


The prize that I'm most excited about however, is a free published copy of my book(with Savannah's cover on the front, I still would like one without the title)! Which is good, because otherwise it takes a lot of money to print one. 

Congrats to all the others who've one, and keep going, those of you which still have a little to go!

  8. I read your comment to my mom. You have to make the gadget an Html/javascript gadget and put the text from the box. Btw where can I find your email address? because the comment box won't accept advanced html codes.

    I know your feeling about the dream, Amarathine! I hate happy things like that--the part where you figure out it was just a dream.

    CONGRATS on winning!!!!!!!!

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
