"I'm bored. Are you bored? Sometimes when I'm bored I babble on and on and on. I don't really have a point, I just keeping on talking and talking and talking. And sometimes I get REALLY annoying. So annoying that I annoy myself and EVERYONE is yelling at my to shut up, but I can't shut up because I am so bored. And if I don't talk, I'll have nothing else to do, so-"


-Shuts up.-


I leaned against the wall. Waiting for the elevator to come. Bored out of mind.
Suddenly, there was a loud SNAP!.
I quickly moved away from the wall. My eyes flickered back and forth to see where the noise came from.
I looked towards the elevator door, which was opening, but there was no elevator.
The sound of shrieking metal rung in my eyes. My eyes were wide open. I stared into the gaping mouth of the elevator shaft.
I heard crashing noises coming from above my head. Screams filled the air.
The ceiling caved in, the elevator crashing through the it. Debris and bodies were trapped underneath it. Everything was covered in dust and blood.
And I watched as it crashed through the floor. As it crashed through the next ten floors.

I blinked. I was leaning on the wall next to the elevator door. I backed away from it, waiting. A light blinked and I heard a Ding!.
The doors opened and people walked out of the elevator. I walked in.
And it took me down the the first floor.

We're hearing reports of an elevator crashing through fifteen stories of a building in downtown Los Angeles. Fred, what's it like over there?
"Well, it's dark inside. The elevator knocked out the electricity in the building. Firetrucks and paramedics are surrounding the building and authorities have blocked off this part of the street. Nobody knows why the elevator crashed. But right now, we're trying to figure out exactly how many people were injured, and if there are any deaths. Fred Alister, downtown Los Angeles. Back to you Kayli."

*Sorry about the news part. Haven't been watching the news lately. I will have to fix that later.*

So, I have decided.
After thinking about it for a little over a week, I have come to this conclusion:
I will not change.

Trust me, my parents have tried, and they haven't gotten far. Or anywhere, really.

I am me
me am I.
That means that I am disorganzied and sometimes implusive. I improvise and procrastinate. I never actually know what I am doing until I am doing it. That's just the way I am. Sorry if it's annoying. Trust me, sometimes I annoy myself.

Don't ask what that's like. It's a bit odd...

But that's how I am. I'm sorry if you don't like it, but I'm not sorry that that is how I am.

So now that that's over with....


Sorry, I am a teenager, after all. I have been wanting that phone for so long... IT'S AWESOME!!

It is a Samsung Impression.

AND I got unlimited texting and internet. HA!
That's just how freakishly happy I am.
Dang... technology...
Anyways, it's charging right now. I killed the battery and letting it fully charge. I suggest you do that whenever you get a new phone.
So I like that I can use Facebook very easily, plus the keyboard is easy to use, and it takes good pictures... not really sure about the zoom, though.
Oh well.
Anyways, besides that I have seen:
Toy Story 3 ---- Theaters (AWESOME!)
The Last Airbender ---- Theaters (Gr...)
Despicable Me (Awesome!)
Eclipse (Eh...)
Fantastic Mr. Fox. (Don't really know....)
I hope to do reviews on those later... along with the most recent books I read...
But I just explained how I am.
So I may or may not do it.
At this point, I don't know.
But who has to know everything all the time?

Just wanted to let you know.
Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Have you ever heard of No Doubt or Maroon 5?
They both have a song called Sunday Morning. As it so happens, I am writing this post on Sunday Morning. So, there's my title explanation.
Anyways, I haven't gone back to my blog surfing yet. I'll get to it eventually, but I'm super tired right now. I woke up and my throat and chest was hurting! Horrible! Very horrible!
Of course, I could blame that on Knott's, but I went on Thursday. Yesterday, I ended up going to the Santa Monica pier. (If you haven't noticed, I live in California. The other option is that I'm in California on vacation... No. I live in SoCal.) So, I could blame it on the ocean breeze. I could also blame it on the fact that my sister was sick, and I accidentally drank from her cup, thinking it was mine.
As it so happened, her drink was a Pepsi. Mine was water. Do you know how surprising it is to drink Pepsi, when you're expecting water? I thought my water had gone bad! Like, omigosh, there's radioactive poison in my water!
Okay, maybe not that dramatic. But you try it, sometime. You'll see what I mean.
Anyways, back to the whole blog surfing. I haven't gotten to that yet. I will mention a certain blog, though. For a while, she posted once every few weeks. So rarely and far apart that I stopped checking her blog. I went back today. She's posting more regularly now. And her blog is really good. She only has four followers, but I say she deserves a bit more. Why don't you all pay her a visit?
What's So Random
Stephanie is random. Very random. But who says random isn't a good thing- BANANA!
Okay, anyways. Why don't you stop by and say hello.
And no, she did not ask me to talk about her blog. So stop by, say hi, follow her. We'll let her wonder where all these strangers came from. It'll be our little secret. ;)

As you may not may not know, right now Spain and Netherlands are fighting for 1st place. Me? I am going for Spain. It is the country of my origin. At least, as far as I know. So,


Be on the lookout for
I may or may not be posting it later today.

(I've seen some people with little signatures, you know? It's an image with the blogger's "signature". How do you do that?)

This is not the Saturday Versus. This is just an extra post for today. Because, guess what.

Seriously, guess.

It's okay. I hate/suck at guessing, too.
Unless you guessed right.
Did you guess right?
What are the odds that you know exactly why I'm adding this extra post to my day?
Fine. I'll just tell you, then.

There is a contest.
Yep. A contest that I MUST tell you about.
It's a Dark Fantasty contest.

And you can win:
1. An ARC of CLOCKWORK ANGEL by Cassandra Clare!

2. An ARC of SAPPHIQUE (sequel to INCARCERON) by Catherine Fisher!

3. A signed copy of WHITE CAT by Holly Black!

4. An ARC of DRACULA IN LOVE by Karen Essex!

Aren't the covers amazing?
They are, aren't they?
So, now that I've told you about the contest. I have to say:
I love Holly Black.
I love Cassandra Clare.
Tithe and Ironside were amazing. Valiant was also REALLY good.
City of Bones, City of Ashes, and City of Glass (Mortal Instruments) were awesome.
Roiben was cool. He's the only faerie I have ever liked. Kaye is cool. She doesn't annoy me too much. ;)
Jace is funny. Simon is cool. Clary is Clary. Luke is a werewolf.
Surely I've told you how much I love vampires. And werewolves. And faeries. And fallen angels. Not so much demons, but they make the story interesting.
I've been wanting to read White Cat, just because it's by Holly Black.
Clockwork Angel is a prequel to the Mortal Instruments series. So, it's something like:
-The Infernal Devices (ID)
Clockwork Angel
Clockwork Princess
Clockwork Prince
-The Mortal Instruments
City of Bones
City of Ashes
City of Glass
City of Fallen Angels
At least, I think so. ;)
And I don't have a cat. Just to let you know.
But my bookshelf desperately wants another book.
You think I'm kidding?

As you may or may not have noticed, I do not use tags. I'm either too lazy, or I forget entirely. Also, I haven't blogged in two days. So, I have to start over.

That's where I am now. Let's see how far along I can go.

Now that that's over. I'm going to go back and put tags on some of my more recent posts. I'm too lazy to do all of them right now. Plus, I really want to see Avatar. NO, not the James Cameron one. I may or may not have already told you about my recent obsession with Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Also, I'm thinking of deleting my Reader Person blog. I don't even post anymore, so it is somewhat pointless. I'll just post weekly reviews on things from here. But, it is not official yet. I'm still in the thinking process.
Also, I'm hoping to get little scenes here and there. By scenes, I mean bits and pieces that pop into my mind at random moments. Short stories, if you will. But I will be calling them scenes.
I think that is about it.
So, here's my reading update.
I'm starting to get back into reading, and so far, this month:

The Wild Girls by Pat Murphy. Finished. 7/2/10. Four stars.
Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson. Finished. 7/6/10. Four stars.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. Finished. 7/7/10. Four stars.
The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan. Reading. Page 138.

And that is about it.
I plan on posting a little bit later. I have not forgotten my Saturday Versus. If you've got any ideas, for today and for Saturdays in the future, please tell me. :)
And if I don't do a Saturday Versus, I will probably.... uh... let's hope we don't get to that. I've had a little bit too much sugar lately.
So, Saturday Versus suggestions will be greatly appreciated. (:

I'm pretty sure all of you have heard this song. I'm pretty sure Rascal Flatts is not the original artist. But I could always be wrong.
So, this is my second post in a row. I will be keeping track of how many days I post in a row. I'm hoping that will somehow get me back into blogging mode.
I have decided that once a week I'll do some sort of review or commentary thing. It could be on a book I finished reading, a movie I just saw, maybe a TV series that ended two years ago, but I'm still obsessed about...
Anyways, I've been thinking about this song lately (meaning for the few seconds since I wrote the title of this post). I've always liked this song. I wasn't really sure why. I'm still not too sure. I don't always realize what songs are trying to say, even if I know every word by heart, backwards, forwards, upside-down, and turned around.
There are some songs that I compare to books. Out of nowhere, I'll be hearing My Chemical Romance or The All-American Rejects, and think "Hey, I wonder if this is a good song for Vampire Academy or The Hunger Games." It's always random. No warning or notice ahead of time. Just- BAM!
And then I'm caught. Not only must I sing along to the song, I have to look into the lyrics. I have to study each and every word. I have to find out what they could mean, what they might mean, how they would fit with the book. Would it make sense? What characters point of view? Which parts fit, which parts don't? Does the point of view change in the song? Is there a part that fits for, let's say, Rose, but another that fits for Adrian, or possibly Dimitri. (Rose, Adrian, and Dimitri are from Vampire Academy.)
Anyways, questions like those. Not that I always think these questions while I'm answering them. Does that make sense? It's like a personal check list that I know by heart and don't bother repeating. It's like engraved in my soul, my essence, my being. Okay, maybe not that much. That would just be creepy, wouldn't it?
But they are with me very often. Especially when I'm drowning in my music. I will say that I prefer not to have my music too loud, what with it causing hearing problems later in life. I'm a bit too young to be deaf already. However, I hate hearing the people around me talk when I'm listening to my music. My sense of hearing is a lot better than my other senses. I can hear conversations in the next room, even with my music on a somewhat higher level. So, in order to block out the sound of people talking, I put my music REALLY loud (listening to multiple different things at once tends to give me a headache.). So loud that sometimes, like when I'm in the car, my parents and sister will complain that they can hear my music, too. They also say that I have selective hearing. I can hear things that aren't directed at me, but I find that I don't always hear people when they're talking to me. Weird, huh?
Anyways. That was off topic. The point is, I make connections. Any song I listen to could have a deeper meaning, if I looked hard enough. Sometimes I imagine that I could feel (hear) the hurt and pain, or maybe the love and emotion, or anger, or the... I don't know. It depends on the song. And I hate those stupid upbeat songs. I'm sorry but I do. I'm a somewhat happy person. I've been known to laugh a lot, and stuff like that. But I do not like lyrics that are otherwise upbeat and happy. To me, those are the songs that are pointless. Who wants a happy song? If you were happy, you wouldn't be listening to a happy song. You'd be out in the world, living life, having fun with your friends. Or maybe you're family. When you listen to songs (or at least, when I do), it needs to either be sad, or meaningful. They give you a perspective on life.
Now, Life is a Highway isn't necessarily a happy song. But it's also not a sad song. I will say now, that I do not go by general categories, at least, not usually. So, Life is a Highway goes into the meaningful category. It MEANS something. But WHAT does it mean. Well, that depends.

Whooo umm yeah...Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There's a world outside ev'ry darkened door
Where blues won't haunt you anymore
Where brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won't hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

Through all these cities and all these towns
It's in my blood and it's all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights
Knock me down get back up again
You're in my blood
I'm not a lonely man
There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

There was a distance between you and I (between you and I)
A misunderstanding once
But now we look it in the eye
There ain't no load that I can't hold
Road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Now, take the words literally. What does it mean?
Take it figuratively. What COULD it mean?
Put some heart and soul into it. Give it life. What does it mean now?
Compare it. To life in general, to YOUR life, to a book, a movie, maybe another song.
Think about what the writer may or may not have been thinking while writing this song.
Think of any other questions I mentioned above. Any other question you have.
There's my lesson on song analyzing.
Good luck.
(Maybe I'll have a weekly lesson. (: )

Or more accurately, getting into the habit. Breaking the Habit is a song by Linkin Park. Hopefully you've heard of them. Because if you haven't, I probably sound like some sort of freak who listens to nonexsistant bands. Right?
Anyways, I haven't blogged in a while. I also have not been commenting much or discovering new blogs. I've been busy lately. I didn't realize on how much I've been missing out. So, I promise I will try and comment on your blogs whenever I can. Otherwise, check my posts. I plan on blogging somewhat regularly. Maybe I'll leave you something special to read. :)
Anyways, here's my life:
yet, boring
I am an Avatar: The Last Airbender freak. I'm sure none of you have even heard of that show. *Sigh.* Oh well. You're missing out.
Also, I'm level 28 on Farmville.
Reading is also something I'm starting to pick up. Haven't read in a while. I did not realize that I gave up two of the things I loved the most. I'm still getting the hang of blogging. Please come back to me.
Sleep tight.
Then something about bedbugs.
But why would you want such a horrible thought to ruin your night's sleep?

This isn't that depressing. Unless you guys care more than I think you do. No I said that wrong. Anyways, sorry for not posting in a while. Like I said, you might not care either way. Anyways, I've been busy. I'm trying to get used to summer. It's weird. I'm not sure how regularly I'll be posting. But,
Happy Fourth of July! (In case I can't post again before then.)
Have a good writing day.
