The Final Day of '09!

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I'm posting this early because I'm going to my grandma's later to celebrate New Year's Eve, and I really doubt I'll write a blog over there. That means this is probably my last blog of 2009!

I hope you all have a great last day of 2009! Have you made New Year's resolutions? I don't usually keep mine (like most people), but I'm determined to in 2010. My New Year's resolution is to update this blog regularly, and work on my fanfiction more often (hopefully at least once or twice a week). Hopefully this year I'll actually keep it!

I'll tell you how my New Year's Eve and New Year's went tomorrow!


Wednesday, December 30, 2009


So... I've got nothing to talk about today. It still feels like afternoon to me (I'm writing this at about 7:30). I didn't wake up until noon though.

I haven't read any of Dear John by Nicholas Sparks or watched any of Naruto.

Since I have nothing else to talk about, I'll recommend fanfictions instead:

The first is You Want To Make A Memory? by Potter on It's a Maurader Era fanfiction. It starts in their first year, and Harry's been born where it is now. It's still ongoing, but obviously it will probably be finished soon.

Bending the Fish and Fishing For Rocks by guyw1tn0nam3 on It's a Tokka fanfiction. It's actually a set of drabbles that goes along with their other fanfiction. You should check out both.

And last but not least, Someday the dream will end by tdfireproof on It's a Leah/Embry fanfiction. There's a sequel called The first day without a sun which isn't finished yet, but they're currently writing What Fate took from Embry which is kind of follows same story as the others but some things are changed. You should read all three! Just as a warning though, the first is rated T, but the other two are rated M.

I hope you check out the fanfictions!

Another Day of Nothing

I don't have much to talk about again today.

You might know how Burger King had those New Moon value meals (I don't know if they still do or not). I got one a long time ago and one of the coupons that comes with it is for free stickers from My sister got hers a while ago, but I hadn't got mine yet. I finally ordered them today. I can't wait to get my Team Jacob stickers!

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks:

I finished chapter four. I really like it right now. It's cool because I've been to where the book takes place (North Carolina) on vacation, and bought books about the area while there (I buy books on where I go every time I travel). Because of that, I know about all the places they talk about going and stuff. It's pretty cool to read a book and know a little about the area where they're at.

I'm off to work on my fanfic. I forgot yesterday (oops!), so I really need to work on it today.

Trying to Cheer Up and Awesome Sites

I have had a horrible day. I'm getting a cold again (third time in the past few months), and it seems like everything wants to break on me today. But I'm trying not to focus on that. Since I've done nothing but feel miserable all day, I'm just going to talk about some awesome sites. Some of them you may have heard of, some of them you might not have.

The first one is It's a site were people share stories about horrible things have happened to them. It sounds really depressing, but for some reason I (and a lot of other people) actually find it interesting.

The second is This is a site were people share stories of things that have happened to them. They're usually things that could happen to anyone, but most of them are hilarious.

Next is It's just like the others except people share stories of things that have happened to them that made them realize their life is good. Another great site that's a lot like this one is It's basically the same thing, but a lot of those have to do with things people see others do.

The last two are just like the other sites, but is for Harry Potter fans and is for Twilight fans. On those sites, people share (usually funny) stories of things that have happened to them that is Harry Potter or Twilight related.

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks:

I finshed chapter 2. It's getting better, and I'm getting more into it. I want to know what happens, but I'm not to the point were I can't put the book down.

Now, I'm going to go watch Naruto episode 25.

I just finished episode 25. It was awesome! I loved it! I can't wait for the 2nd test!

A Day of Doing Nothing

There's only one thing that's even slightly interesting that I have to talk about today.

I went to church today. Not exciting because I go to church every Sunday, but something happened that wasn't like every other Sunday. Some elderly lady fainted in the middle of mass. It was freaky. I was just listening to the priest and then all of a sudden there's this boom. I knew someone had fallen, but I couldn't really see anything. The whole church was looking around. Father kept going, but when he got to the point where we're supposed to go up to communion he stopped. Meanwhile, someone had called 911, and some others were helping the lady. She was kind of laying in the aisle. Father went down there for a little bit. After a while, he went back up on the altar and said we'd continue with communion, but some people were going to have to walk through a pew because the lady was in the aisle. Then a paramedic came, and he was helping her when mass ended and everyone left. I hope she's alright. And that was the only remotely interesting thing to happen to me today.

The sad thing, I've done absolutely nothing today, but I didn't read any of Dear John, watch any of Naruto, or write anything for my fanfic. All I've done is read fanfic and do other stuff on the computer. I'm probably going to read some of Dear John tonight though. I may even watch an episode of Naruto. I'll see.

Sadly, with it being Christmas break, I'm probably not going to be doing anything all week (until New Year's Eve at least). I'm determined to start working on chapter seven of my fanfic tomorrow.

The Day After

It's the day after Christmas. In a way, it doesn't even feel like it's been Christmas yet. Is that weird? If I lived in Britain or Canada it would be Boxing Day. If I was African American it would be Kwanzaa. But I'm American and Caucasian, so it was just another day. Well, it was my mom's birthday. And I ate a candy cane in honor of National Candy Cane Day.

Wow. I have no idea what that was. I just started typing and that's what happened. I blame it on being tired. I slept in pretty late this morning, but I don't think it really made up for the lack of sleep on Christmas Eve. Please ignore that first paragraph. (Although if you're celebrating either of those holidays, I hope you're having fun!)

I did nothing all day (partly because half the day was spent sleeping). We did go eat at Red Lobster for my mom's birthday, but that's about it. Hopefully, tomorrow I won't be so tired, and will have something more interesting to say.


I watched episode 24: Start Your Engines: The Chunin Exam Begins. I thought it was hilarious! (And it wasn't just lack of sleep.) I enjoyed Naruto before, but these last few episodes have made me like it even more. *Spoilers* I find it hilarious that everyone's cheating, but Naruto refuses to cheat because he doesn't want to get kicked out. I hope he doesn't ruin things for them (although I have a feeling he won't).

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks:

I've read part of chapter 2, but I didn't finish it. I'll talk about the chapter after I'm done.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Today is Christmas! My favorite holiday (though if we're talking religion wise I like Easter more).

I woke up at about 7:30 this morning. That's the latest I've probably ever woken up on Christmas. My sister usually wakes me up at about 5 in the morning, but this morning she didn't wake anyone up. I was the last in my family to wake up.

I got a bunch of awesome presents! I won't list them all here (but I think I twittered everyone of them). My favorites were definitely my new phone (with a full keyboard!), a Hufflepuff tie, and my class ring. I got a whole bunch of books! At this rate, I'll never finish all the books I'm getting. I've got to finish Dear John before I start any of those books though. The strangest (but awesome) gift I got was an owl candle.

We watched the Disney Parks Christmas Parade. I wish I was in Florida or California. everyone was wearing Summer clothes!

After opening presents, my sister and I played Mario cart which I suck at. Considering I was playing against my sister (who has never driven before) and I have a permit you'd think I'd win, but I came in last each time. My 10 year old brother even did better than me. (In my defense though he's really good at video games).

I watched four episodes of season 8 of Little House (which I got on DVD). I also played my Harry Potter DVD game that I got. I sucked. I didn't get passed anything.

Later, my grandma came over and we at dinner. After dinner, my sister, grandma, mom, and I played Apples to Apples which my sister had gotten. That is a pretty hilarious game. I'd never played before.

And after finishing playing, my grandma went home, and I came up to my room to write this blog. That's pretty much it.

Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a great day! In a little over an hour it will be Christmas here!

Yesterday, after posting my last blog, I finally updated my fanfic for the first time in four and a half months! Yay! I may get started on chapter seven tomorrow, or I may not since it's Christmas.

The majority of my day was spent watching Christmas movies on ABCFamily and starting to read Dear John by Nicholas Sparks (which I'll talk more about later).

I went to Christmas Eve mass. We left at about 3:15 but mass didn't start until four. We got there 45 minutes early and it was still packed! We had to sit in the back were they'd put extra chairs and you couldn't see anything. My sister sang with the children's choir. She did really good especially considering she had been (and still is) sick. She had to sing a solo, and was freaking out yesterday because my mom said if she was still running a fever she wasn't allowed to go. Luckily, she got well enough to sing. This year's the last year she can be in children's choir, so it would've sucked if she couldn't have sung.

After mass, we went to my grandma's house to celebrate Christmas with my dad's side of the family. We do secret santa each year so everyone only gets two presents (my grandma gets something for everybody). This year, I got money from my grandma. My cousin who got my name got me season six of Little House on DVD. I'm apparently supposed to be getting books, but they didn't come in time. They said they'd get them to me later. It was a whole lot of fun spending time with my family.

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks:

I finished the first chapter. I like it, but I'm not really into it yet. I'm sure it'll get better. I am kind of interested to find out what happens after how chapter one intended. (I was trying to make that not a spoiler for people who haven't read it, but I may have just made it confusing. Oh well.)

Only an hour until Christmas. I haven't even showered yet! I'm extremely tempted to just go to bed, but I know I'll never take one in the morning. At this rate, I'll still be up when Santa comes. It's happened before though (although I think it was the Easter bunny). The dogs woke me and my brother up in the middle of the night before Easter. I found my brother wondering the hallway because my parents weren't in bed. (I still don't know what had happened to them. Must have been helping the Easter bunny.) Anyway, I had my brother lay down with me until my mom came back. I wonder if my brother ever suspected anything?

A Day of Doing Nothing

Today I did pretty much nothing. Which was awesome because I was tired of waking up and going to school every day.

I've basically just watched movies on ABCFamily all day. I've watched Santa Baby, Santa Baby 2, and Prep and Landing. Right now I'm watching Miracle on 34th Street with my sister.

Once this goes off I'm going to watch the new episode of Naruto Shippuden on Disney XD. It's kind of weird that I'm watching the dubbed version when it's so far ahead, but I want to see them. Even if I get confused some times.

As soon as I'm done writing this, I'm going to edit chapter six of my fanfic. I'm determined to upload it to tonight! It'll be like a Christmas present to everyone who reads it (which is sadly only one person that I know of).

Tomorrow's Christmas Eve! I'm so excited! I love Christmas Eve mass and one side of my family's getting together at my grandma's.

Outline For My Fanfic

Something I forgot to put in the last post. After finals in geometry I was sitting there bored, and decided to write an outline for my Avatar fanfic. I now have an outline for the next five chapters! Now that I have a clear idea in exactly what chapter everything's going to happen, hopefully it'll be updated sooner!

The fanfiction won't be ending after those five chapters, but there will be a new arc in the storyline I guess. Azula will still be the main villian (I hope that doesn't give to much away), but different things will be happening. I guess you could think of it like a different season in a TV show.

I'm a little worried because I'm going to have to write fight scenes in just a couple chapters, and I've never done that before. Also (SLIGHT SPOILERS) some characters are going to be tortured. I have no idea how to write that, but I will do my best and hope it's good!

I'm going to go try and write some now!


No More School in 2009!

Today has been a good day.

Finals in AP world history and art were both pretty easy. I think I got at least a B on both finals. Mrs. Schroeder (the art teacher) even gave us brownies since it was the last day! Although it's not actually my last day since I'm taking another art class the second half of the year. Not fun since I hate art. I have no artistic ability at all no matter what Mrs. Schroeder or my parents say about the horrible paintings and things I bring home.

I gave my best friend Summer her present. She gave me the Twilight journals! They're pretty cool. There's one journal for each book, and each journal has quotes from the book it goes with.

We watch a movie (Mr. Deeds I think it's called) in chemistry. Mrs. Sanders wasn't there which was sad. She's one of my favorite teachers and it was the last day in chemistry.

The final in geometry wasn't that hard. I got an 88% (B). Mr Schulte grades quickly. He had them graded almost as soon as we finished. I wish the other teachers could be that quick. He gave us candy canes too.

The only other class is health, and all we did in there was watch some boring video. I'm glad that class is over. It's so boring that half the class sleeps, and the other half is trying very hard not to fall asleep. (I'm the second, but I think there was one time I feel asleep for a few seconds. It's so hard to stay awake when the teacher starts ranting!)

For the last half hour of fourth block, we had a Christmas assembly/program. It was awesome! Wyatt sang a song about Hanukkah just like last year. I'm not sure if he wrote it or got it from somewhere, but it's hilarious. The French II class sang some Christmas carols in French. Daniel played the guitar. He is an amazing guitar player! Better than a lot of professionals even. The Rebel Singers (they're our school's show choir) sang the Glee version of Don't Stop Believing. They were amazing! They were good last year, but amazing this year. Everyone loved it. Then the teachers showed one of those videos were you take someone's picture, put it on an elf's body, and the elf dance. You know what I'm talking about? The had the vice principal, principal, guidance counselor, and this guy who works at the school but I don't actually know what he does (I know he's not a teacher). It was hilarious!

Fanfiction recommendation:

If you're an Avatar fan who ships Tokka, you should read I'd Lie by Kyoshi7989 on It's a real world Tokka fic. (Meaning it takes place in a world like ours not the Avatar world, so no bending.) It's completed, and she just started a sequel the other day although she's not promising to actually finish the sequel. It doesn't matter. Even though the sequel's awesome, the first stands on it's own fine. The fic is awesome. I love her Toph and Sokka so much! In fact, you should read it even if you don't ship Tokka! You could probably read it even if you're not an Avatar fan and still understand everything. (Not that I'm trying to hard to get you to read it or anything...)

I'm so glad school's out for Christmas break! I'm staying up late tonight, and sleeping in tomorrow!

Only three more days till Christmas!

Finals, the Brady Bunch, and Christmas Presents

Today was the first day of finals. I think I may have gotten a B on my chemistry final which would be better than midterms (I got a C). The health final was easy. I'm sure I got an A on it.

Tomorrow I have AP World History, Intro to 2D Art, and Geometry finals. Our geometry teacher had us figure out what our final grade will be based on what we get on the final. I figured out that I can get a 50% on the final and still pass the class with an 87%, so I'm not worried about that at all. (Not that I'm planning to get a 50%!)

We watched the Brady Bunch in world history. It'd been so long since I've seen that show! I used to watch it every day when I was little. I don't know if it even comes on TV anymore.

My best friend Summer gave people bags of candy for Christmas today, so I've been eating chocolate since I got home. She said she'd bring my present tomorrow, and I need to remember to take hers too.

Only one more day of school left, and four more days till Christmas!

Five More Days! If Only There Weren't Stupid Finals.

Hey, look I updated two days in a row!

I didn't do much today except go to church and a confirmation class.

I don't think it hit me how close it is to Christmas until right before church when I realized it was the last Sunday of Advent. Only five more days! And only two days of school!

I'm really stressed out about finals tomorrow and Tuesday. I have chemistry and health tomorrow. Health will be easy, but I'm a little worried about chemistry. I still can't name the strong acids and bases, and I hope I don't get the formulas mixed up. Does anyone even remember chemistry after high school? I know most people don't know the difference between a single replacement reaction and a synthesis reaction, or the idea gas law. (If anyone does I'd be really impressed.) Just have to keep in mind that when I make it through finals it's Christmas break!

For some reason I decided to watch Avatar today. Maybe it's because I was so stressed about finals. I watched Ember Island Players and parts one and two of Sozin's Comet. I would have watched all of Sozin's Comet, but I had to go to confirmation. Before today, I hadn't watched Avatar in months. I think I feel in love with it all over again. I was so stressed out, but it cheered me up. I laughed so much. I just wish I could have finished Sozin's Comet.

We had a confirmation class today. I'm Catholic and we have to go to classes before we get Confirmed (Confirmation's one of the seven sacraments where you recieve the Holy Spirit). This is my secong and last year. I'll be confirmed in May. Today, we talked about scripture. I thought it would be even more boring than usual (and it's usually pretty boring) because my best friend wasn't going and I had (and still have) a horrible headache. It actually ended up being pretty funny though. That may just be because I was super tired, and I find everything funny when I'm tired.

Yesterday, I posted about talking about Naruto and books, well I may post about fanfiction to. I read a whole lot of fanfic (Harry Potter, Avatar, and Twilight mainly). I probably won't talk about it in detail just recomend some good ones I've read every so often.

I haven't begun readiing Dear John yet, so I don't have anything to say about it yet.

Episode 23 of Naruto:

I really liked episode 23. I lot of people have said the this arc is their favorite and I can see why. A whole lot of new chracters are being introduced, and you're finding out some cool information. My only problem is I have a hard time remebering characters names especially when they're Japanese names, and it's even harder when there are 20 new characters in an episode. I only remember a few of the new characters names. I'm sure I'll get them eventually.

It's interesting watching these episodes when I already know a lot of spoilers (I've read stuff on the internet and seen some of the American dub on Disney XD). I may have more to say on this episode tomorrow (because I'm determined to blog again!) when I'm hopefully not as tired and don't have a horrible headache.

I think that's all. I'm off to study for my chemistry final some more. Those acids and bases are really annoying me!

New Ideas

Just thought of this after posting the last post.

I'm currently watch all of Naruto. (I think I mentioned that in a previous post.) I think in each of my posts I'll post a little review on what I thought of the last episode(s) I watched since the last post. I'm currently on episode 23. (I have a long, long way to go.)

I'll also post reviews on whatever book I'm reading. I'm about to start reading Dear John by Nicholas Sparks, so that will be the first one. I also belong to, so I already post reviews of books I read on there. This will be as I'm reading though whereas those are just my over all view of the book once I finish.

I may include spoilers of the Naruto episode or the book, but I'll put a warning before any spoilers.

By the way, I know the Twitter thing on the side is messed up. I don't know how to fix it. I may just end up removing it.



I say I'm going to update more often, and then don't update for two months. That is the story of my life. I've got to get better about that.

There was a point where I said I was going to give up on this blog completely because I should spend the time I use to update on working on my fanfiction (which hasn't been updated for longer then this blog). It's easier to write a blog though. I need to come up with a plan on when to blog and when to write my fanfic. It would make things easier. I try, but then just give up. I wonder if there's any one who even cares about my fanfic now. I promise to update it at some point! Hopefully, I'll get some writing done over Christmas break!

Speaking of Christmas, I'm so excited! Only six days!

I've been having so many problems with my laptop lately! I hate it! It's gotten better, but it's still really slow and won't let me watch videos. If it does happen to let me watch a video, then the video skips so much that you can barely understand it. I've gotten so behind on my Youtube subscriptions.

Going back to writing. is writing a book, and they want fans to send things in for it. It would be pretty cool to be published in a book, so I may do that. It wouldn't be a longer term thing, so it wouldn't interefere with this blog or my fanfic much. The only thing is, I wouldn't be updating my fanfic over Christmas break. So, we'll see if I do that or not.

Finals are Monday and Tuesday! Monday I have chemistry and health finals. Health will be nothing, but I'm a little worried about chemistry. I got a C on my last chemistry final (Or midterm I guess. We call them finals, but they're actually midterms.) I should study this weekend, but it's Saturday night and I haven't bothered to. I have confirmation tomorrow, so who knows if I'll study tomorrow either. That's not good... I'll try to study tonight.

What else...

A lot has happened in the two months, but I think I'm going to stop there. I don't think I'm missing anything huge.

Oh wait! The Half-Blood Prince DVD! It was awesome! I loved all the special features, and watching the movie again was great!

Okay. Now I think I'm done. I'll try to update more often, but I'm not promising anything.
