Book Meme

Okay, so I wasn't specifically tagged for this. I just saw it on Faith's blog and thought that it looked like fun! So here it goes...

1. List the 10 books/collected works/series that you would bring on a desert island.
2. (Optional) Say why you would bring them.
3. Link to the person who tagged you.
4. Tag 6 people to also do the meme.
5. Leave a comment to let those people know .

1. All of Shannon Hale's books, of course!
2. The Ink Trilogy by Cornelia Funke.
3. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray.
4. The Chronicles of Narnia series.
5. The Harry Potter series (that would occupy my time for a while.)
6. The Twilight series (for whenever I needed a good laugh.)
7. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.
8. The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot.
9. The Percy Jackson series.
10. 13 Little Blue Envelopes.

As you probably noticed, I listed mostly series. But if I'm stranded than I'm going to need a lot of free time. Right now being on a desert island with no school work and just books sounds pretty good right now.

So I tag whoever wants to do this!

Internet Sarcasm

It is so hard to determine whether someone is using sarcasm on the internet. Sometimes when I leave a comment or response on a blog or message board, someone else might respond to what I said in what I might interpret as sarcasm.

You see, on the internet you're not actually there with them to determine their tone of voice, facial expressions, etc. So when you're online you have no idea what they were intending by their particular comment. So the comment can either not phase you or you end up thinking "Wait, were they making fun of me?"

So please, if you're using sarcasm with me say so. Otherwise, it could leave me scratching my head for while. ;)

Days Off from School Bliss

I can't even tell you how happy I've been having days off from school on Thursday and Friday. This is the first time I've had free time in what seems like forever! Even though I put off all my homework until tomorrow and Monday, I'm still really happy. I've spent most of my time...

Listening to this song. I get so happy whenever they play it on the radio when I'm in the car, even my family knows I love it by now. :)

I also read Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott. I loved it! It's really disturbing and dark in a way, but totally addicting once you get into it. Highly recommended.

Well, hopefully more posts will come later. Have a great rest of the weekend!

I remember when I used to be smart...

*Sigh.* Right now, I am frustrated. School is making my life extremely stressful right now. I used to consider myself pretty smart. I got straight A's every year of elementary school and I got a 4.0 gpa seventh and eighth grade. This year though, my grades have pretty much dropped. Mainly in Biology and Geometry. First, I did really badly on a Biology test (though the test was on a chemestry unit) and that brought my grade down. And right now I'm doing horribly in Geometry. I've been getting low scores on all the tests and quizzes so far, including the one I took today which I know I just failed. So that's going to bring my grade down even lower.

The end of the quarter is in just a couple of weeks. Right now I have a 3.8 but the test from Geometry is definitely going to lower it. So I'm probably going to get a 3.6 or a 3.7 first quarter. Considering I'm an honors student and in classes with a bunch of smart people, that's pretty bad. No NJHS for me.

So I'm really depressed about that right now. This year just has not been good. If I study extremely hard in all my other classes I might do well, but those Geometry tests are just going to ruin me.

So just feeling really blue lately. I just hope that things get better soon.

New Twilight Trailer


My sister and I both agreed that the lines from the book sound cheesier when they're acted out. ;)

Plus, what's up with the creepy music in the background?
