Did you hear?

There's been another earthquake. Myanmar was hit with a 6.8 earthquake this morning.

Last weekend my family had another discussion, about a question that a lot of people around the world must be having.

Why? Why do all these earthquakes have to happen?

Before Adam sinned, the world was perfect, right? Does that mean there weren't any earthquakes? And after he sinned, does that mean the earth quakes just, I don't know, started to happen?

Sometimes I struggle to equate what I learn in church with what I learn in school. But I know science proves Christianity, not clashes with it. But I like reading about apologetics, so I find most of my answers there.

So maybe there weren't any tectonic plates before Adam sinned, and his sin started the breakup of the earth's crust? God did say that "the ground would be cursed." And later, the section about Noah did talk about "the earth dividing."

Do you have any questions about Christianity that you would like answered? Just remember that science is the EVIDENCE for God, not replacing him.

I was inspired by Jedi~Chick's mom(who needs a name) to post some pictures that I took with my camera.

  





 Pretty, no?

And I read another article about Rebecca Black today. She apparently is now very famous at her school with autographs and stuff. Maybe I should go knock on her door or something. We do live in pretty much the same county.

My Septimus Heap review is giving me trouble. >.> Maybe I'll post it next week.

  1. Another earthquake! That's not good.

    I totally agree about science proving Christianity.

    Pretty pictures!!! You're a really good photographer.

  2. Beautiful photography!!! :D Lol, my mom DOES need a name! Ideas anyone??? ;)
    Not another earthquake! That's just not good. :'(
    I agree about the science and Christianity. If you really think about it, and do your research, there is more to PROVE Christianity than to contradict it. ;)

  3. I think it is the sign of the coming end times. In Revelations (don't know where) it says of many earthquakes...is there not?

    I also think the earth and our bodies are running down...Cancer, TB, ITP, Tumors, all are becoming more frequent. Scary, but true.

  4. Another sign that the end times are coming.....earthquakes would become more common in the last days.....not yet, Lord! Can I please have just another ten or fifteen years?

  5. Thanks guys!
    @Satine-Thanks! I like taking pictures, but I only have a couple good ones.
    @Jedi~Chick-Yes, she does! Maybe she can be "Alice".
    @Ashley-Scary, right?
    @Endor-I know, you want to get married first right? Me too!

  6. I think it's definitely a sign that the Second Coming is drawing near. It's a scary thought, but so exciting at the same time. At the rate things are going, who knows? Maybe the world really will end in 2012.... maybe sooner.

    Your pictures are beautiful.

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…
