Happy Late Independence Day!

I did not in fact go see fireworks, instead preferring to stay at home, edit pictures from Costa Rica, and go mountain biking  I didn't actually know how to mountain bike(thought it was like regular biking) so when I came down from a steep hill I fell(launched is a more appropriate term), and now I have scratches on my chin, both elbows, knee, and stomach. >.>

I'm still reading Brisingr and Ender's Shadow, saving the last Fruits Basket volume still. I can't bear to let go...

Today I was looking at colleges. My summer's almost over, man! I gotta get cracking on this stuff. The problem is that I have no idea what I want to be when i grow up. (Except I do know that I want to occasionally write). I'm looking at some kind of double engineering/English major. I know I want to go somewhere a decent way from my home. Somewhere cold, or at least no warmer than here. I want the campus to have big trees and old stone buildings. The complete list of colleges that I've been looking at: Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, University of Chicago, Swarthmore, Brown, Reed, and Harvey Mudd.

Dance is on summer break now, but next week we're in full swing. I'm going to take as many classes as possible, meaning I'm only restricted by my level. Time isn't an issue, as I'm free all week, and money isn't either(for a while) cause I have tons of make ups.

Another of the many benefits of dancing is it really cuts down on envy. Like, I used to envy other people and wish I were them with alll my heart. But I don't anymore, because most of the people I envy don't dance. And I couldn't imagine my life without dancing, so there. Same goes for Fruits Basket and stuff like that. XD

I promise a real post "soon". agh.
In other news, I've started Hetalia: Axis Powers. It's officially the most bizarre thing I've ever seen in my entire life.

Even more bizarre than this...thing. (UPDATE: It's called a sea pig. Google it).

Also, you can win a book from Marisa's Book Depository giveaway here!


  1. Ohmygosh! You've discovered the evil sea pig!! *shields eyes* They are hideous beyond belief; I know. :/ Endless Ocean: Blue World is so informative.

  2. Happy late Independence Day! :D
    Glad you had a good time on your trip :)

  3. Happy late independence day

    sorry to hear that your hurt :( ouch
    don't worry so much about not knowing what you wanna do in life you have a good start. I know tons of people who are currently in college taking courses and still have no idea what they wanna do in life so you are definitly not alone and as for me i went between like 3 majors and end up switching my major before i decided so its definitly not uncommon and you will do great in whatever you decide to do. :D

    thats great to hear about dance hope you enjoy it and love the pics
    God bless

(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…

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…

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.


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…
