Million Little Mistakes

I finished reading Million Little Mistakes by Heather Mcelhatton today.  I won it on Goodreads a while back and I really enjoyed it.  It's one of those books where you read a little bit and then have to make a decision.  Your decision decides where the story goes.  In this one, you win over $20 million (I think that was the number), and then you have to decide things like whether you quit your job and so on.  I thought it was fun.  It only took me about half an hour to go through it making decisions and stuff, but there are so many different decisions to make that you could probably read it a hundred times and have a different story each time.

I watched episode 113 of Naruto earlier.  It was an awesome episode.

Those are really the only note-worthy things I did today...

I Need to Go to Hot Topic

I don't have much to talk about today as I think today was actually less eventful than yesterday.

I updated Avatar: The Next Generation today!  You should check it out if you haven't already.  You can read it here.  The chapter is called He'll Want to Hear About This (read the chapter to discover what the title means).  Not much happens that's important to the plot really, but I needed to get them all back home.  Although you do get to find out Ichiko's reaction to Hajime's revelation.  This chapter is quite a bit shorter than the past several chapters (probably because not much important happens).  Next chapter should be longer.

I need to go to Hot Topic!  Their new Harry Potter shirts look so cool!  I really want some of their Hunger Games shirts too!  I just had to mention how awesome they look!

That's really all I have to say in this post.  I need to get back to my astronomy homework.  I'm only halfway done (which means 20 questions to go).

The Unlucky Chapter

I actually have quite a few things that I want to mention in this post, but most of them aren't really "real life" stuff but "internet stuff."  In fact, I've done basically nothing all day other than be on the computer.  Don't I live an eventful life?

Anyway, I slept in until almost noon today!  Why am I so happy about that?  I've been so tired the past few weeks, and today was the first time in forever that I've actually felt completely awake.  With church tomorrow and then school this week, I'm sure that won't last long.

I finished writing chapter thirteen of Avatar: The Next Generation today!  I just need to edit it, and then it will be up!  How long has it been since I posted chapter twelve?  A month?  It might not have actually been that long, but it's at least been a few weeks.  (I checked.  It's been 21 days.  It would have bothered me if I didn't check.)  It's a pretty short chapters (especially compared the the last several chapters).  You know, I just thought of this, but maybe it's so short since it's the thirteenth chapter and I had bad luck writing it.  Who knows.  It's an idea.  (Except, I don't think it's a bad chapter really, just short.  Although, I did have problems writing this one part.)

Warner Bros. announced that their releasing a Deathly Hallows Part 1 trailer Wednesday!  Yay!  I can't wait!

Speaking of DH, the actor who plays Scabior (Nick Moran) said in an interview that they apparently cut some scenes from DH because they were too much like Saw.  I thought that was interesting.  I can't think of anything in DH that would resemble Saw (not that I've ever seen any of the Saw movies...).  Although, I do figure that they want to keep the movie rated P-13, and if there were scenes that looked like Saw then that seems like it would get the movie an R rating.  I don't know.  I just found that interesting.

One last thing about Harry Potter:  I want those new calendars!  Can you believe that I've never had a Harry Potter calendar?  I've gotten a calendar for Christmas the last three years (I think) and they were all either puppies or Twilight (not that I'm complaining about those calendars, I just want a Harry Potter calendar).

Moving on to Twilight, there is apparently a school overing a Twilight class now.  How cool is that?  First Harry Potter and now Twilight.  I hope the college I go to has that cool of classes.

I watched episode 109 of Naruto earlier.  Amazing episode!  As I said before, I was dreading this whole Sasuke thing.  However, I love how it was done.  It was an amazing episode!

This post seems really weird to me.  I'm just in a weird mood right now I guess.  As you can tell, I did nothing but sit in front of the computer and getting on Harry Potter and Twilight fansites (actually that's not entirely true, I read and wrote too).  Anyway...  I think I'm done being odd now.

The Long But Short Shopping Trip

My Aunt Judy and Uncle Neil are visiting from Georgia this week.  Usually they stay at our house when they're up here, but they're staying at my Aunt Becky's this time.  They stopped by our house this morning though.  I was still asleep when they got here, but I was awake by the time they left.

My brother and I helped my mom pack all of our cardboard, newspapers, and plastic bottles into the car so we could take them to the dump to recycle them earlier.  There was so much of it!  I don't know how long all of that stuff had been sitting in our garage and piling up, but we had to pretty much jam it all into the car (and it's not a small car).  I'm surprised that we got it all in there.

Later, we went over to my Aunt Becky's house the visit with our relatives some more.  I hadn't been to my Aunt Becky's in forever!  Her house has really changed since I was there.  Everything had moved, and they put in new floors.  They also have a new dog named Daisy who's a beagle.

After spending some time at my aunt's, we all went to Lowes.  My mom needed to get something for one of our bathrooms (she's doing a bunch of stuff with it).  We couldn't find what she wanted though, so we went over to Home Depot and bought it there.  Now that I'm typing this I can't help but think that that was a long trip for it to only be that little of a paragraph.  It seemed like we were in those two stores for hours.

I also watched episode 107 of Naruto today.  Even though I knew what was going to happen with Sasuke, I'm not happy that I'm finally there.  He's one of my favorite characters at the beginning of the series, but I know I'm not going to like him after this.

September 7th marked the one year anniversary of this blog!  Can you believe it!?  It doesn't feel like I've been posting on here that long.

The Abandoned Kitten

My sister and two of her friends found an abandoned kitten last night!  It was adorable except for the fact that it's eyes were swollen and disgusting looking.  We took care of it last night and today, and then gave it to my aunt, uncle, and cousins today.  It was so cute though!  I uploaded pictures of it onto Twitpic and I got a little bit of video of it that I'll put in tomorrow's video.

Today was my parent's wedding anniversary and Tuesday is my sister's birthday, so we went to eat at Red Lobster today.  Afterwards, we went to the bookstore!  I found a lot of books that I haven't been able to find in a while.  I got Specials, Will Grayson, Will Grayson (yes, that was supposed to be typed two times), Bella Should Have Dumped Edward, and volume 5 of Ouran!  I wonder how long it will take me to read them.  You guys have no idea how many large stacks of books I have sitting around waiting to be read.  I want to read these so badly though that they might skip to the beginning of the list.

I've read chapters ten through thirteen of HeartBreak.  I was wondering when Emily would get her scars.  Other than that I don't have much to say about it.

I watched two episodes of Kekkaishi earlier today, so I'm caught up on that now.  I don't really like Masamori (I hope that's spelled right.  I'm too tired to check).  There's just something about him that I don't like.

I love the contest that Mugglenet's having it sounds awesome!  They're asking people to write their own version of the Deathly Hallows script right where the split will be.  I definitely want to enter, but I don't know if I'll actually get around to doing it.

I'm incredibly lucky that there's no school tomorrow because I am way to tired to be waking up early in the morning.  We'll see if I wake up tomorrow at all.

I Hate Spiders

Maybe I'll actually to remember to update this every weekend now!  Anyway, moving on...

I didn't really do anything today.  My mom, sister, grandma, some cousins, and some of my sister's friends all went to Holiday World (a theme park near here) today (my sister's birthday is Tuesday), but I decided not to go.

You know how my old laptop broke a little over a month ago?  Well, we still haven't gotten rid of it and it's just been sitting in my parents' bedroom.  My dad called me in there earlier today to show me something.  He'd found a spider living INSIDE of my old laptop.  It was sticking out of one of the holes (I think it was the one you plug the charger into).  It creeped me out.  He ended up spraying bug spray into the hole to kill it (if it wasn't broken before, it is now).  I had just started worrying about finding spiders all over the house when this happens.  I hate spiders.

My brother had Jimmy Neutron on earlier, so I was watching it.  I loved that show when it was airing.  Anyway, during commercials they showed an ad for this new show.  Sheen from Jimmy Neutron is the main character.  I'm not entirely sure what the show is about, but from what I could figure out, Sheen's living on some planet with aliens.  I wonder if it will be as good as Jimmy Neutron.  I don't think I'd like it.  To be honest the main reason I liked Jimmy Neutron was because of Jimmy/Cindy.  I thought it was funny too though.

I've been reading The Light in the Forest by Conrad Richter for school.  So far, it's my favorite book out of the three I had to read for summer reading.  It's not my favoriting book, but I do like it.  Other people have told me that they thought it was boring, so I'm a little surprised.  It might have to do with the fact that I'm incredibly fascinated with Native American cultures.  I really like how you get both perspectives in the book.  I think it does a really good job describing the Native Americans and the whites views on things, and you can understand both of them.  At least, that's what I think.

I've watched two episodes (103 and 104) of Naruto in the past 24 hours.  I really liked both episodes.  I hope Idate sees his brother again.

I also read three chapters (7 through 9) of HeartBreak.  Not really much to say there.  Nothing much happened in those three chapters except for Emily deciding to be with Sam even though it hurts Leah, and obviously, we all knew that was going to happen.
