Sometimes I think about how there are so many tv shows and movies I want to watch and so many books I want to read, and then I get overwhelmed when I try to pick one to start with. Then I give up trying to decide, and that’s how I end up on tumblr.
petition to make young adult authors stop writing about girls whose lives change when they meet a boy
When she saw him time slowed to a stop. He was so perfect and she knew her life would never be the same because she had finally found him. The one. The first boy she would ever kill.
When she saw him, her heart skipped a beat. He had the most adorable face she had ever seen. She looked into his blue eyes, which gazed back at her, almost as if he knew she would be the one to save him. Little did either of them know, he would be the one to save her. She turned to the woman at the counter. “I’ll take him,” she said, and not ten minutes later, she was on her way home from the animal shelter with the kitten who would change her life forever.

Apparently, “Cinder” started as a NaNoWriMo story!! How awesome is that?!
It always makes me happy when Little Brother makes lists like this
To me, this post might be just as important as the bible.
One of my classes. My elderly teacher taught us this because he really cared about books.
Why does no one teach us these things anymore?
I get so uppity when someone breaks the binding on my books.
My choir director has library duty 7th period, and she lets me into the new book collection so I can wear them in properly.
You know how you sort of feel jealous of friends who got to hang out together in a place near you and you couldn’t go? And you’re glad they had fun, and you know it was only the fault of circumstance, and not that they didn’t want you to come? Well, I feel that way when I see things about the filming of The Fault in Our Stars. Because it was in my city. And I wasn’t there.
I love that feeling you get when you don’t remember that you’re reading. When you’re so captured by a book that you forget you’re reading the words. All you see is the descriptions and conversations that being to play out like a movie in your head. You don’t even think about it. Then before you know it, you’ve read 100 pages without realizing it. That’s probably the best feeling in the world.
and then in real life, you think about the plot going on in the story and feel as if it is currently going on and you want to get back to it so you don’t miss anything. and you miss the characters. so you read more and then when you’re done, you still feel that way, but you can’t go back to them because there are no more pages.
Sometimes I read childrens books to a 4 year old when I’m babysitting her, and then I have to push through my voice getting warbly when the story becomes really touching or emotional. For example, The Lorax.
If her smile could cure cancer then why did anyone have to get cancer and die from it? Rude. She should have jumped pages and gone into the TFIOS world.
Microsoft Word grammar checker wants me to change “and I love reading and writing” to “me love reading and writing.”
Sometimes I think about a book or movie that I watched or read when I was in my early-to-mid teens and about how I don’t remember anything that happened in it and so I re-watch or re-read it and then I think that maybe it was a waste to have watched or read all those things back then when I was too young to understand or appreciate them but then I decide that even back then they affected and influenced me to become who I am now so it was worth it.
I went to the book sale at my local library a couple days ago and got a ton of books and I really just want to read all the time but I have been applying to jobs instead..I read one of them though. I read the whole thing today. And I finally submitted an online job app during a commercial of Glee on Hulu, (I paused it for a long while..) and watched some episodes of Criminal Minds and Grey’s Anatomy and So You Think You Can Dance auditions, and emailed people about important things, and I’ve only been awake for 12 hours.
I am at the part of the year where I don’t want to pay attention to things or do important stuff, I just want to be lazy and maybe watch all the TV I have yet to catch up on when I build up enough of an attention span to decide I’m ready to commit to a 40 minute show. And I can barely do that. I also have the problem where I do start watching a show, and I get really motivated to watch everything, and then while I’m watching it, I’m thinking about all the other shows I need to watch too and I can only watch one at a time and it’s a little overwhelming. This is stupid. But it’s my life. Luckily I have been a good life-liver and have applied to some jobs and found some apartments to decide between and I’m not too tired during my waking hours and I haven’t become nocturnal. Oh and I’ve read two books in the past 4 days. So I guess I’m doing alright.
