not unfortunately a dramatic picture post.

People have been posting uber inspiring picture posts lately. Unfortunately I cannot get around to finding awesome pictures. So content yourselves with my melodramatic typing. It's straight from my heart, so pardon the scatterbrainedness.

Who am I? (augh augh if I had an inspiring picture I would totally post it here.)

Teenagedom is supposed to be the age you find out who you are. And I just realized I seriously need to know. When you're young I think your identity comes more from the people and influences around you than from yourself. But in the teenage years all that is stripped away, and you have to come to grips with yourself.

I realized this after I realized: "HEY! I have no friends."
It's not that I can't get along with people. I naturally get along very well with people and can engage in conversation with almost anyone. But I feel like I can't identify with people. Then I realized that I couldn't identify with people because I had no idea who to identify with.

I can't identify with the girly girls and the tomboys, since I am neither. But how, seriously, would I identify myself, Amaranthine?

Nerd? I'm not a nerd, sorry. I like nerdy things, but I'm not defined by them. I realized that things like Star Wars and Artemis Fowl(despite the previous post) actually aren't that big in my life.

Bookworm? I love books, but I love everything else too.

Dancer? Asian? Writer? Pianist? These things are what I like to do, but do they contribute to identity? If someone asked me to describe myself in a few words, those wouldn't come to mind at all.

The older girls I know seem so secure that I just want to be like them. They know who they are, what they want, everything. They have enough confidence in themselves to level mountains. It's okay if some people don't like them or they fail at something. Their confidence and security is like a shield, one which I can't say I have at all.

What about "Amaranthine?" What about this persona I've projected onto myself?

"Amaranthine" is so secure and confident and flippant(at least, that's how I hope I come off as.) She's scatterbrained and melodramatic, but she's confident in her scatterbrainedness and melodramaticocity.(Are those words?)

I am:
A daughter of God. That will never change. That's the one thing I'm secure in.

I love:

The ocean
Being outdoors
Being on the computer
Just being out of the shower

Everything else under the sun.

But who am I really?
I want friends who love me for who I am. But who is that?

PS. I've promised a lot of posts, but I can't do them right now. I'm sorry.

Add "failed blogger" to my identity.

PPS. This post was more scatterbrained then I would like. (facepalm)


  1. LOL interesting! There is a lot of inspiring images here:

    That's what I use for some of my pictures :)

  2. ERGH weheartit gave me a virus. Never checked it again. XD

    Thanks though! :)

  3. If you stop posting, I'm going to drive to your house and kill you. Just letting you know. ;) You need to start posting again.

    and don't sweat it about inspirational posts. They're hard to write. >.<

  4. .........
    I guess I'll just have to keep posting.

    :P Thanks. :)

  5. I can never write inspirarional posts :p

  6. I'm not really good with inspirational posts either....

    -Barriss =)

  7. I can't write good inspirational posts too. My life is kinda dull if you read my blog posts. >.<

    Same as you, I want friends who'll love me for who I am too. :)

    I thought your post was very inspiring, by the way. Serious. :D


  8. Seriously, I thought you were writing about me right there. >.> (Except I'm not asian. xD)
    I cannot believe how hard it is for me to simply *relate* to someone. It seems there is no one even remotely like me (except for you and some other bloggers, but then again, you're not really like me in ways other than this), no one who shares a passion with me, no one for me to look up to, no one for me to just spill my guts and secrets with. So, I suppose what I'm saying is
    I don't know whether I should be happy because that means I'm not alone either, or sad because I know how frustrating it is to be like this, and I don't want anyone else to have this problem.
    Oh, and I can't write inspirational posts to save my skin. They always turn out corny and sappy!

    (I realize this is an old post, but I still felt the need to comment.)

Amaranthine <3's you. Thanks for the comment!

(fangirl flapping of arms and running around in circles) (eee) (ignore this)(spoilers for Son of Neptune)

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…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.

This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
