Hey, world! I'm posting again. It's a miracle! :)
This is just a real quick post.
I've been watching Disney and Disney Pixar movies.
Today I am watching Lady and the Tramp. :)
So far, I've seen Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea, Mulan 2, Mulan, Pocahontas, Pocahontas 2, and Lilo and Stitch.
It's been awesome. I love Disney. :D
So, post again later. I hope. ;)

Hey! It's kinda late. Not really, but according to my parents, it is. I just wanted to let you know that I am alive. I don't know why. I guess if I was dead, you wouldn't know, would you? But I can tell you if I'm still alive. I guess Arlee Bird from Tossing It Out would tell you if I happened to die. Maybe not. I wouldn't really know. Would you tell someone if someone you knew died? I'm anonymous anyways. At least, I hope I am. For various reasons. Not really sure what they are though. So, moving away from the topic of life and death.

I just finished reading My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. (Which is actually about life and death. :/ )
She's the author of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Just in case you needed to know.
But anyways, the book was awesome. Supposedly, it's gonna be part of a trilogy. But I need to look into that some more. I really hope it is, though. The ending was a total cliffhanger. And I hate hanging.

Also letting you know that I read The Awakening, Vampire Diaries #1 by L.J. Smith. I have to say that I loved her Dark Visions trilogy. But VD was totally disappointing. Annoyed me almost as much as Twilight did. And that's bad.
Really bad. I knew there was a reason I didn't wanna read it. But I went ahead anyways. I'm such a weirdo.

Okay, so I've started writing again. Yay!

Not really any one thing. More like, I'm writing whatever ideas pop into my head. It's a temporary thing until my teachers decide to give less projects. (Translation: Not anytime soon. :/ )

(Awesome handwriting! And it took me three minutes to make that arrow)
All these ideas are floating around in my head. And I have vague outlines for all of them.
Thing about me and writing is that I hate structure. But I can't live without outlines. Don't ask. Cause my answer is: I'm weird. But, it's the way I am.
So, I do vague outlines. Really vague. To the point where I almost have no idea.
But I do. And I follow it pretty well.
If I have the time.
Which is the main problem here.

Where the heck am I gonna get time? I am much too young to be worrying about how much time I have in each and every day! But I still do. So, there ya go. That's life for you.
But, whatever. Life if life.

Yesterday was history, tomorrow's a mystery.
Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.
If you have noticed, I have added pictures to my post. Yay!

Which is weird. I much rather prefer darkness.

Though I admit that picture creeps me out.
So, on that note:
Today is coming to a close.
Hope I'll see you tomorrow on the What the Heck is This Show Called? Show!
*fake, enthusiastic smile*
*meaningful glance from the audience*

Title taken from: Animal by Neon Trees. :)
It's very popular right now. But I've known about it since last year. :D
So, I knew it before it was popular and such.
And it's really cool.
Really. Cool.
A few days ago, I made a song list. Mostly alternative, rock. There's some country and some pop. I got an electronic song, too. Only one, though.
I also got a few songs from books (If I Stay by Gayle Forman) and authors (Rachel Caine).
And it is 100+ songs long.
So many songs. So. Many.
I haven't even listened to all of them yet. I'm maybe 1/2 way through it?

On to another subject:
I thought you should know that I'm trying to work on some book cover contest. It's due tomorrow. And I haven't started. But I really want that prize. $10 Barnes and Noble gift card.
Really cool. :)
The book I chose was If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I have a few ideas on what to do. But I'm not quite sure how I should do it. Make sense?
I want some broken glass to represent the car crash. And the parts falling off could have scenes from the book. I'm also thinking a dark figure. And snow. Some trees?
It looks really cool in my head. But I can't seem to figure out how to get it to work on paper.
Doesn't help that I am not such a great drawer-er.
But I'm trying.
For that $10 gift card.
And I'm finally getting somewhere! I am going to scan it when I'm done. I'll post it tomorrow. :)
I'm so excited!!!!!
So, goodbye for now. I'll be posting tomorrow.
Wish me luck! :)

So don't forget to do that wishing thing-y. You know? At 10:10 AM or PM. I just missed AM by about ten minutes. So there you go. ;)
My weekend was okay-ish.
On Friday I invited a bunch of friends over to watch Beauty and The Beast (which is my all-time favorite movie, for those of you who don't know.) And it was awesome. We ate junk food and laughed. Perfect day.
Of course, I knew I'd be in trouble for something afterwards. And I was. But I'm trying to forget that. It was fun while it lasted. I gotta be thankful it happened at all. :)
So, yesterday I went over to my cousin's house. We watched The Little Rascals, which I had never seen before. Turns out it's HER favorite movie. And I had to admit it was pretty cool. :D
Also, I finished By the Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead by Julie Anne Peters.
And I have no idea how it ends. I still can't figure out if she really does kill herself. But I like to think that Santana was able to reach out to her. That she accepts that not everybody sucks and some people can be nice. I'll admit that her life had sucked. And her parents didn't really do much to help her out. I mean, of course they did. But they didn't seem to be able to fully understand. I have to point out that this is usually the case in books like this. The adults never really seem to understand. But that could also be because the person didn't want to adults to understand. It's almost like they don't explain because they need a reason to be mad at the adults in their life. Like they need an excuse to kill themselves. "You weren't there for me."
That makes sense, rite?
But what do I really know? I have never been bullied, especially not in the way Daelyn was. I've seen kids being called names. But they never seemed to take it the way Daelyn did. Nobody ever tried to kill themselves at age 10.
Of course, not as far as I knew. I grew up pretty sheltered. Which is another reason why I read. There's always some truth in the books I read, even if it is about vampires or werewolves. The way people act and react? Authors try to make the most unrealistic stories, realistic. So, yeah, you can learn a lot about people from reading fantasy, at least, I've always thought so.
But then you go to realistic fiction. And that's a lot more realistic. I mean, duh. It's in the name. And that's why I love that genre. It's REAL. Or, at least, close enough.
So, yeah. Also, I want to see It's Kinda of A Funny Story. I read the book back in April and it was AWESOME! So, I'm excited about the movie. I might see it today with my friend. :D
My dad feels bad for me because my sister and mom went to Disneyland today. And I have tomorrow off, but we won't be able to do anything. So he'e making up for it. I just hope he doesn't ask why IKoaFS is rated PG-13.... :/
And that may or may not tell you how old I am. Take that whichever way you wish. ;)
So, I'm off! Later, gator! (-Now I'm a gator?-Yes! Deal with it!-)
