Back to School

Honestly, is anything more exciting than the start of the school year? September is so much more the beginning of "a new year" than boring ol January will ever be. School is what sees children through to become adults, after all.

Have I mentioned that I'm really excited? I would say I love school, except that I won't love school anymore in say, February(My least favorite month! Woo!)

I have:
Brand new notebooks that smell nice and DON'T have ripped pages and doodles!

Brand new textbooks and reading novels!(The Great Gatsby and The Glass Menagerie, to name a few)
Gel Pens!
All different colored Sharpies!

I am taking:
Honors Modern World Studies
Honors American Literature
Algebra II

Finding your Path 2(Bleck!)
Image Design and Editing
C++ Programming
Spanish II

Extracurricular activities are:
Reading(What I'm going to be reading, not sure)
Dance(currently 3 times a week)
Small group
Possibly a sport
Possibly a course at the local community college.
Girl Scout

This all starts in a week!


What are YOU excited for this school year?


  1. I'm excited all around for school! I'm gonna do a similar post to this in just a minute........

  2. that's quite a list u have there. i start school the 22nd. i'm in college so a summer off is not even a month.

  3. I love school (even through February) but I must say, I'm going to really devote myself to both Spanish and Latin this year.

    And I have a pile of lit books! :)

  4. YAY FOR YOU AMARANTHINE!!!!!!!!!!!! :D I'm happy for you and your excitement for school. XD

    Me? Hmm. I'm excited for P.E. XDD I hate PE, but I'm excited to see my friends again. ;) And Dance. ;)

    We're doing a big hard program this year, so I'm a bit nervous. XDD

  5. Well I gotta do a post now that you and Endor did one!!! :)

  6. Awesome! Your classes sound like fun!

    I'm excited to be taking Pre-AP English, and to be able to eat in the cafeteria, the commons, or outside instead of just the cafeteria.

  7. Sounds like you'll be busy - I hope you enjoy yourself! :D I love those fresh notebooks and supplies and all that loveliness that September brings. :) This year, though, I won't really be getting it... I'm homeschooled, and this year I didn't really have a huge summer break. So I'm currently doing school and have been for several weeks now, and will through to fall (except for one more vacation in September! :). But the way I see it, it just shortens the time between now and graduation! ;D

    Enjoy your school year - it's good that you're so excited! :D

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…
