Do you love somebody?

What percent of couples at your school fit this description? What percent of so called "love" in the world fits this description?

 "Love is patient.

 Love is kind.

It does not envy

It does not boast

It is not proud

It is not rude

It is not self-seeking

it is not easily angered,

it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres"

 .Love never fails.

People's version of love is screwed. Love isn't an emotion, it's an action. This list is all verbs. Love does.

"Love" at first sight is impossible. That's not love, because "Love at first sight" is all about me.

A lot of people who "fell out of love" or "lost their feelings" were never in love in the first place. Their "love" was all about you meeting my needs. You fufilling my desires and living up to my standards. You making me happy. Love is not selfish.

When people conduct affairs behind each other's back because they "really love the person they're with", that's not love. Because love doesn't delight in evil. Love rejoices with the truth. True love isn't built on lies and deception.

When boys treat girls crudely and disrespectfully, that's not love. Love is not rude.

When  spouses are abusive and jealous, that's can't be love, because love is not proud or easily angered.

If you love someone the way God loves you, you are patient, kind, unselfish,humble, and forgiving to them.

Love is supposed to be perfect. But we aren't. So say a prayer to help you love others the way you should.

And when you're confused, try and remember what real love looks like.

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

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…
