random adults ask me all the time...

"Amaranthine, what, exactly, what would you like to do with your life?"



What I have checked out from the library so far, a fair amount unread.

I'm sorry for my pause(read: complete absence) from online activity. These days are craazy, way more than school, it seems. I owe you guys.

Every day now, I go to sailing camp from about 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

I have dance on Tuesdays(3:30-4:30), Wednesdays(6:30 to 7:30) and Fridays(5:30 to 6:30) not counting makeups.

I also have 1hr15 min swim practice every weekday afternoon and 6 hr. swim meets on Saturdays. I also practice an hour of piano a day, and do chinese and theory homework. On Sundays I help out/attend church starting at least 8 and often not ending till 1 in the afternoon.

It's hectic. Thanks for seeing me through this. You have no idea how much you all help me. So far I have gotten over 1000 comments. I love you all.


  1. When my mom tells me I have too much checked out from the library, I'll just show her your list, :)

    Yikes! That is a lot to do. I can't even imagine...I'll keep praying.

  2. Hehe, you swim too?!?! EVERYONE SWIMS!!! Except I swim for 2hrs...I'd love to swim for 1 15min again. Actually, I don't think I ever did that...
    Cool post, deary! So glad I'm the 1,001st commenter! ;) :))

  3. Yikes! You sure are busy! That looks like a great selection of books. When do you find the time to read them?

  4. @Josiphine-If you do, tell me what she says.
    @Jocee-Yeah! What's your favorite stroke/event! I'm the best at freestyle(easiest one! XD)
    @EFC-I read very quickly. XD I started two books two days ago and finished them today. (The Atlantis Complex and the Maximum Ride manga).

  5. I read so much :) But 1/2 of what I check out I never read.

  6. Well. I now know what you have been doing. xDD I've missed you sistah. Come back to us in the online world....xDD LOL!

    Enjoy your reading!

  7. Ha, I love the way you answered that question (: you definitely have a way with words... And I *love* the Artemis Fowl and Maximum Ride books.

    Good luck with that crazy schedule! I wouldn't be able to juggle all that.

  8. Oh my gosh, those book pictures made my life. SO TRUE! *fistbump*

    (PS I saw The Door Within and The Book of Three in there. That made me super happy <3)

    Anyway, you really do have a hectic life right now! We forgive you for not being around. You can make up for it by reading all those awesome books ;)

    Love ya, girl.

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…

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…

(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…
