Thinking...


I've had lots to think about these last couple of weeks.
A lot of decisions to make.
Trying to figure out what I am going to do with my life.

I think I may just join the circus.

Just thought i'd share.

Happiest Valentine's Day!


Valentine's Day is definitely not my favorite holiday, but nonetheless, here is a lovely picture via http://colormekatie.blogspot.com/. In honor of the day of love i'm including the most romantic of sonnets (at least in my opinion). 


SONNET 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.


- William Shakespeare

2011: The Year of Reading

Since my last post about books I've been reading like a fiend. Seriously.

I finished Brave New World, The Road, Never Let Me Go, The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. I highly recommend them all, minus Never Let Me Go, which was good, but not great. I love the feeling of being engrossed in a book. So. Amazing.

Speaking of amazing, if you haven't read The Road or The Hunger Games trilogy do so now. Yes that's an order. You'll thank me later.

Anywho, I have class to get to, bleh. But, next up is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Hopefully it will live up to it's reputation.

Best valentine's day card EVER.



You can put your own message on it by just writing on it in pencil. Brilliant.

Pictures!

Calm down people, 
I know you have all been dying to see more pictures from my trip to Nicaragua (note the sarcasm), so here they are:






Ta-Da! I feel like I might have stole the first picture from the internet, but I promise I did see that volcano quite a bit actually. Which was pretty much amazing 'cause how many times in my life have I lived five miles away from a volcano? Not very many times.

It was a really amazing trip. I may write more in detail about it later, but for now you will have to be content with pictures.


In other news, I'm in love with quaker rice snacks, in fact, I just ate an entire bag of them. The first time this happened I freaked out a little, because although on the back of the bag they say they are low in calories per serving, every delicious bag has like 45 servings in it! Maybe that's an exaggeration, but still, it was a decent amount of rice snacks.
I've since stopped looking at the back of the bag.

Well, that's about it for now, so, feliz año del conejo! How's that for multi-cultural?

Surprise tests are not my flavorite

Today my teacher walked into class with pieces of paper and said, "Are you all ready?". I was puzzled by this, until I realized he was handing us our test. The test I haven't studied for because I thought it was scheduled for Thursday. Yeah. I think I did okay though due to my mum's love for history.

Also, I'm wanting some coffee. Too bad I'm a poor kid who has to buy food at school, leaving no money for coffee.

Oh well. At least I have some sweet moccasins.

Super sweet.
