Random post day

I had a lot of random things to post, because I had things I wanted to tell you, but they didn't fit into the theme of any of my other post. So I'm posting a special post just for that collection.

So how's my life?
I avoid posting about my personal life on here, because that's not really what I want my blog to be about. But...hello! I'm feeling especially cheery today. Why, you ask?


Okay, so today I got up and walked downstairs to turn on my computer, because I live on the internet. 

My dad surprised me with a new monitor! 
You see, I've been begging for a new monitor for quite some time now.  This one was a super big, nice, one, that could eat my former monitor for breakfast. 
But wait! There's more!
He installed something I really wanted on my computer, this thing which lets you split your screen between two monitors! Your mouse can move in between them, and work in two windows at once. 

Guess which one is the new one. 
Well actually from this angle, they both look like the could be about the same size, but the one on the right is much bigger in real life.
You can see where the window is split between the two monitors. Cool! I'm still happy about it(tip: if you know someone who lives online, then give her something new to plug into her computer for Christmas.)

Actually, the prime reason I wanted a bigger(not necessarily split-screen) monitor was so I could display this:

This is one of the widest backgrounds I had ever seen, and it definitely wouldn't fit on my small monitor, at least not in its full glory. It works great on this one, though.

Next up: I found the perfect rock song to describe my book. 





This is an AMV for the song. I didn't really watch the video, just listened to the music.

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…

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…
