Evanna Lynch is Amazing

These clips are both from a long time ago but I love them.
I would love to be Evanna Lynch.. Her voice is so sweet and soothing and I love her accent. Just listening to it makes me happy...I don't know what I'd do if I had it XD. And she's gorgeous...



My Desk

Today I decided to take pictures of my desk, since I just cleaned it. The Lakehouse is the website in these pictures.




You can see where I drew a little lightning bolt on the "HP" logo. XD


 My other desk/paper holder, along with the DVD I sold my soul for two days ago.

when you mess up

Hello! I feel like crap today.
Why? Because I deleted my signature? Well, that too.


But I also lied to the librarian.... :( Well, I was in a hurry to get a dvd, and in our library system, they don't let you check out DVDs unless you're 18. What I normally do is grab my mom's library card and go through self-checkout, but here they had a security feature on the DVD that prevents you from going through self-checkout.


And so at the checkout desk, the librarian asked if I was 18 and if it was my card, and my brain was not switched on very hard and I said yes to both questions. Then she checked the card and said "It's not really your card, is it?" And I was like "um... not really" And she said "Don't lie to me."(Well, she said "fib", but it's really the same thing. And so I got my mom to come in and get the DVD for me.


On the way home I started crying because I felt so bad. I'm not all that used to lying. And now I feel all me…

owww

I came back from Acro today. I pulled muscles I didn't even know I have. In other news, I've been feeling I-need-some-purpose-in-my-purposeless-life recently. And I also feel sort of overwhelmed with:

-School
-Piano Competiton
-Planning the Newsletter
-Research paper due
-Rip Van Winkle essay due
-and I need to write some more decent blog posts.





I'm working on these right now(front limber.) I can do it, but I come down early and hit my head on the floor before pressing back up >.>


Can you pray for me right now? I know a lot of people are going through lows in life as well, but pray for me too! :D Thanks!

This is such a gorgeous song.

Be sure to vote on my poll!

Other than that, I have not much to post about.

 Here are some modern proverbs that are reposted from a long time ago.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

Was learning cursive really necessary?

Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the Person died.

Bad decisions make good stories.

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word…

thoughts about The Hunger Games(to take the place of a legit review)(no spoilers)

This is just one of those messy posts that I felt like I had to write. You can skip it if you want. I've pretty much given up on book reviews, because I usually can't detach myself enough from books enough to write an unbiased review. So this will just be my interpretation.



The Hunger Games was not an enjoyable book for me. To me, reading the book was an intense, gripping, thrilling, experience that I found rather unsettling.  

Suzanne Collins, is, as Ron would say, "bloody brilliant". Her writing isn't my favorite, but she is incredibly talented. Her books are extremely suspenseful and forcefully grab you and make you not stop reading until the end, often in one sitting. Her writing is haunting, poignant, and darkly humorous, and her plot seems so real it's hard to believe that a mere mortal could have thought it up.

The Hunger Games have a seemingly simple premise. An oppressive government, that rules what used to be North America, forces each of i…

NaNoWriMo in three minutes

This video is hilarious. Please watch it. It also explains NaNoWriMo a little bit. XD


To confuse your friends. XD

"What rewards do you get? A freaking novel! Sure, you don't want anybody you to read it, but it's done! how many other people can say they've written a novel? (besides the other 20,000 people who do NaNo each year XD)"


XD XD



Ready, Set Plot!(How to Win NaNoWriMo, part 1)

You will never write an excellent, ready for publication, first draft in a month. No matter how hard or how careful you are, you'll never do it.

And that's what NaNoWriMo's all about! NaNo focuses on "quantity, not quality."  The philosophy is that too many people get caught up in editing, trying to hard to make it perfect the first time, and they never finish. With NaNoWriMo, you don't have to worry about that!

Oh, and by the way, I'm not going to explain what NaNoWriMo is or the rules. You can find that in their own website down below, which is written much more wittily than mine.

And that's the key to NaNoWriMo, which starts in November. Sign up atwww.nanowrimo.com.

As NaNo comes around, the blogosphere will be swamped with posts about it, and I'll have to try to make my posts different from other people. I think a good tip for beginning Wrimos is: read up on all the different tips the former winners post about!  Different things work…

Ashley Eckstein mentioned us!

I was a little ahem ahem dubious about Her Universe when it just started up, but now I take back every word I said.




Because Ashley Eckstein mentioned The Lakehouse in an interview! This is so awesome I could just cry.



"But because of that, this is a story that actually really touched my heart, there was a group of homeschool girls that, you know, obviously when you’re homeschooled you don’t necessarily get to always interact with other girls at school who you might find that have similar interests. Well, they all met on our message boards, and they found, that they all like Star Wars , and they couldn’t believe that there were other girls out there their age that liked Star Wars – it was like a complete shock to them. Last I heard there was over 38 of them. And they gave themselves their own name, and now it’s like this sorority of girls that all met on HerUniverse.com and they now have their own separate board that’s private. But they’re planning meet-ups, you know, so…

Randomosity

I usually don't like the word random, because it's so overabused in everyday culture, but the word randomosity,  I like better, mainly because it's from ARTEMIS FOWL! :D


So here's some random stuff about my life.


Since my work is all caught up I'm not stressed out and in a better mood today.



I'm both happy and nervous because Girl Scouts is starting and I'm one of the officers. It can be really hard, however, to tame a bunch of highschoolers enough to get anything done. It has nothing to do with maturity, it's just that we've known each other for so long no one gives each other much respect while talking XD. So pray that the meeting will go well today and we'll accomplish stuff! XD




Why does Jedi~Chick hate Harry Potter! D; I wrote "The Computer Who Lived" on a post it note and stuck it next to the HP on my Hewlett-Packard monitor.



I'm borrowing The Hunger Games trilogy from a friend today! Yay!

Look! I have friends in real life to…

perfect people do exist (an angsty poem by Amaranthine)

Perfect People Do Exist




"Nobody's perfect", the self help books, the media, they try to say.



But they're wrong
You know they're wrong.


Perfect people do exist, they do
living their perfect lives in perfect houses, a three car garage that actually fits three cars.


And somehow, you always knew they were there-
-taunting that you'll never reach their level
-tempting you to try.


Make no mistake. They're real. You've read about them-

-the thirteen year old in college, who played piano in Carnegie Hall
-the dancer with the national title and 20 pirouettes

-the one training for the Olympics-what was her name? Doesn't matter, it'll never be you or me.


The well dressed working mom, toting a briefcase in one hand and a diaper bag in the other, perfectly balanced.

The novelist whose brilliance moves people to tears.

And the singer whose notes and artist whose art
                              you swear
could have simply fallen
down
                        …

I'm starting a tag!

Find one song that reminds you of your blog(or you think summarizes your blog) and post it!
I pick this song because I used to always listen to it while always blogging, and now it reminds me of the early days of my blog.







I tag everybody!









PS. This post is procrastination for my real post XD

haha

Rick Riordan, author of Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus/The Kane Chronicles is coming to my city. I'm wondering if I should go or not. Tickets are $22 and include a copy of The Son of Neptune.

 I finished The Red Pyramid two days ago and loved it. The sign above refers to Anubis(guess who? XD) Got the sign from JC.



And Rachel at Dramatic Elegance is having a giveaway! Check it out. :D
