is determined to strangle the life out of me day by day.

I've been taking State Testing today and yesterday, so I apologize if I haven't been on much.

Life is ganging up on me to squish me......

In Girl Scouts, I'm getting ready for this big, 3-day nautical competition called GAM, which tests nautical knowledge, knots, international code flags, semaphore, morse code, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and rowboating, sailing, and general Girl Scout knowledge, etc. etc. Our troop doesn't take it too seriously, but I'm hardwired with a "I GOTTA WIN" instinct. I learned all 40 of my flags, but most of the other girls don't know theirs. A lot of the other girls are pretty lazy about it too.

This is what they do during the meeting:
*text text*
(looks over at me and Rae)"WOAH how do you guys know all this stuff?"
*goes back to texting*

Another girl, Bryanna is too discouraged to try to learn anything. She thinks everything is too hard and extreme for her. She's like "This stuff is for really dedicated people."

Another girl hasn't shown up at all.

Did I mention that the competition is in a week?

I'm signed up for most of the swimming events and Morse Code for Message to Garcia. All the girls have to take the main Class A test, the flag test, School of the Crew(marching) and the knot test. Bryanna and the texting girls did learn like, one knot out of the fifteen we have to know for the competition. I learned all my knots and flags, but I'm afraid it won't help the troop much.

The other thing I'm freshly ticked off about is other people's attitude towards homeschoolers.(again.)

Jared(my "friend."): "Amaranthine, do you have any friends besides me at all?(!!!!!!!!!!) I mean you're homeschooled."

My own youth group leader(sniff. Not her too!): "They're homeschooled homeschooled, though, so the socialization is like nada." (She wasn't saying this about me, though.)

Justin, yesterday at CSTs. When I told him how long I've been homeschooled, he looked me straight in the eye and said: "You must be completely socially inept."(!!!!!!!!!)
Star Wars Meme-Favorite Villian/Favorite Diva.
Just because. ;)

Tied with:
The ultimate anti-Jedi.(Natasi Daala)

Favorite Diva-
What's a Star Wars diva? XD
The ultimate Star Wars diva. ;) (Mara Jade)


  1. You can be public schooled and anti-social
    too people!!

    It just goes to prove, us homeschoolers are SO smart, others can't comprehend us! lol

  2. Haha. I just wrote a huge research paper about home schooling and socialization and here's a quick summary: the whole thing is total bull crap. Home schooled kids can be just as socialized, or more so, than public school kids.

  3. MESA LOVES MARA JADE!!!!!!!!!!! *is picture*
    Admiral Daala is cool too. ;)

    UGH! I hate when people are like that. :P I know plenty of anti-social public schooled people!!!! And, for a homeschooler, I'm incredibly socialized. xD Amen Ashley! ;) We're just super smart. :D

  4. Even though I'm public schooled, I have enough homeschooled friends to know that not all homeschoolers are anti-social ;) I know lots people in public school that are more anti-social than my homeschooled friends XD

  5. *is offended* I am NOT anti-social. Much. >.<

  6. It drives me crazy when people think that all homeschoolers are anti-social. Kids in public schools can be anti-social, just like homeschoolers can be "social butterflies". It all depends on the individual.

    OOH! Plo Kool Daala, Boba, and Mara pics!!

    -Barriss :-D

  7. I don't think that (Public schooler) in fact the home-schoolers I now in real life are more social than me XD
    Good luck with the GS thing!

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.

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
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…
