pictures and survey questions 3+4

(life is too short to)not wear red shoes is having a photography contest(portrait). So I want to know which ones you think I should enter. I have two entries :)

 This is one where I experimented with crossfading.

If you pick this one I can turn it darker if you think it's too bright. I sort of like the brightness of it though.


This is Lauren <3. Do you think I should use this one(a bit over sharpened).
or this one:(more natural)
I have some more too...hmm..

Survey question number 3
Imagine the ideal you. What would you look like? What would you be like?

Question number 4:
What's your definition of beauty?


  1. Just to be clear, the "ideal you" includes specific abilities and goals.

  2. Oh so many things. I would be tall and graceful, athletic and powerful. I would be kind, but strong and able to be ruthless if the situation called for it. I would be a natural leader and everyone would look up to me. I would be an amazing cellist, pianist and singer, have multiple books published, and be skilled at using the bow and arrow. I would write my own music. I would also be good at archaeology and history and science. The boys would all have crushes on me, but I wouldn't have any of them until I was sixteen. And he would be nice and funny and considerate and make me laugh every day. And he would tell me that my hair was beautiful and it would be true. Everyone would admire me for my abilities but they would also just like ME, they would want to be around me and I would never feel like I don't have any friends. And I wouldn't have any zits on my face and also perfect vision. And good handwriting.

  3. The ideal me might be a smidge taller and less shy. But then again, I don't really mind being short. It's just that it makes it rather difficult to find pants that fit me, and I don't always enjoy having conversations with taller people (5 1/2 feet and taller) because I have to strain my neck a wee bit. Other than that I'm happy with my appearance. My shyness on the other hand is a whole other issue. I would absolutely love to be able to walk up to almost anyone and start a conversation, but unfortunately I'm not skilled in that area. I can't even keep eye contact with people who are older than me! I wish I wasn't like this and I've been trying to fix it.

    My definition of beauty... I guess I find it beautiful when a person is content with the way God made them because they seem to be the most at ease. After all, God made us in His image, and he's perfect, so I don't think it's entirely right to try and change who He made us.

  4. First Question: to be more learned in the Scriptures. :)

    Second Question: the same lesson from Beauty and the Beast. You are beautiful by being you; and who you are inside. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside.

  5. I think you should do the crossfading one. :)

    Now, to your questions.......

    The ideal me would be someone who always knew what to say and when to say it. My nails would all be the same length. I would have poise and grace and I would always make people feel happy. I would also be a great ballroom dancer and I wouldn't have my lisp. I would also have correct posture *sits up straight*. I would also have no temper and my siblings wouldn't be scared to make me mad.

    My definition of beauty is beauty that comes from the inside and shines out. I think it's the eyes that capture beauty for me. The eyes are windows to the soul.

  6. I think you should use the third portrait. I like it sharpened. :3

    Now for the questions.

    What would you look like? I've always wanted black hair. And green eyes. That way my pale, not-able-to-tan-even-in-Texas skin would actually look okay, instead of looking like some freak among my tan sister and my hispanic friends and the people who can tan. Oh, and I would love to be either, if God is going to keep me short, small and curvy. Or if I'm going to shoot up like a weed, I want to be curvy too. Tall, extra skinny people are weird.

    What would you be like? I would be more charitable. I'm really bad at being charitable. I would also be more Godly, considering I'm really struggling with my faith right now.

    What's your definition of beauty? Beauty is good on the outside. Making yourself look good can boost self-confidence. But it does not have to be everything. Beauty on the inside is equally important. Beauty on the outside is gratifying, while beauty on the inside is Godly.

  7. I like the first one the best!

    The ideal me. Uh. The ideal me is very different from the real me. The ideal me would be skinny, and naturally very athletic. The ideal me would have perfectly curly hair. I've never had any desire to be taller. xD
    The ideal me would have a better singing range, the ideal me wouldn't be lazy or procrastinate, and the ideal me would be a really nice person and better at making friends. I dunno, i just want to be one of those people who literally shines because she's beautiful on the outside and the inside.

    My definition of beauty...those people who smile alot and when they do the whole room lights up and makes people like me look less mean and grumpy. >.< But it's mainly in the smile for me.

  8. Ideal me wouls be smarter and skinnier and better at talking to people. My hair would be less unruly. Ideal me would be nice and liked and no acne!

    Beauty is somone who is nice and smart and has good personal hygene

  9. The ideal me would look pretty much the same as I do now, except my hair would be curly, like Taylor Swift's, except brown. I would be hardworking and not procrastinate. I would be a proffesional author and a journalist/photojournalist. Most of all, I would never be mean to anyone. I'd be one of those people who is friends with everyone because they're so nice.

    My definition of beauty is love. Someone who feels nothing but love and kindness towards anyone and everyone.

  10. A very fine article and exceptional blog. Is there any way I can subscribe to new articles, you know like acquiring them on email or something like that.

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…
