One of my favorite things about blogging is..









...looking back at all my old posts and all the memories. :) It's like a legit journal! This time last year was when my blog was really starting to pick up..I averaged ten comments on a post, booyah. (hitting 17-20 a few times, even). T'was awesome. I danced, but I hadn't really gotten into it. I didn't even have my precious WIP! :D I didn't read Maximum Ride or Harry Potter yet. I had just found out CVI was going to be in Orlando (again!) ! ! !.

One thing's similar...I have my post from last year two hours before the piano recital..and I have the June recital yet again tomorrow! Yay. Whoohoo. Allright.

Please pray for me..I practiced a ton for this recital, and I have a regular piece as well as a duet(even though I get to use the music on the duet.) I always have bad stage fright...sigh...Piano stage fright is one of my worst fears. :PPPP Like legitly.

Last year I was really into intense blogging too. Like in January, I had 34 posts, meaning AT LEAST one post a day. Compared to this January, a measly 9. I think they have improved in quality though. (That's what I"m telling myself, at least.)

Blogging has really calmed down for me. A huge part of it is that Blogger isn't the premiere social network for me(or anyone) anymore. Before, if I wanted to talk to Jedi~Chick (love you <3) I had to a.) post a post addressing her or b.) comment on her blog.

Today, I could a.) Skype her, b.) TLF PM her, c.) TLF post her, d.) TLF chatbox her, e.) Email her, f.) IM her, g.) Skype her, h.) call/text her, i.) mail her a letter, j.) fly to Florida and show up at her door(last resort).

I actually don't mind or feel sad about toning town the blogginess for now. As long as I still love it (and I do!) I don't mind. I was wayyy too into it before anyway. XD I just love seeing how I've grown and having a nice track record of my high school years. :D I actually started this blog in the end of middle school...and now imma be a junior...scary.

Blogger has really opened a window to the rest of the internet though, mostly TLF. Before, I really wanted to participate on the internet, have a blog/internet buddies, but I didn't know where to start! Really hard to believe. My mom actually half convinced me to get a blog. XD. Now, the internet life is awesome! It has caused a lot of trouble and angst, but for now, I'm good with where I am.

On TLF, we're gearing up for CVI...I think we have somewhere around 14 members going, and a bunch of surprises hopefully TBA!  Ahsoka, SWA, Snips, JG, and Kayla are on the chatbox....I can't join them though because once I log on, I can never log off and I have to do things this afternoon. XD

I don't know why I'm suddenly so nostalgic...Must have been the measly salad/corn on the cob I ate for lunch. I NEED MEAT/CARBS DANGIT. Especially after reading a special on celebrity diets in People. Seriously, how do they survive on  egg whites and almonds?

  2. Not to mention, blogging connects other people to you. You can have hundreds of people praying for you just from a single post. Viva la internet!

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.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
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
Similarities:
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…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.







This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.

Ahem.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
