More Lazy Days

I meant to post a blog yesterday and then completely forgot to.  Whoops.  It doesn't really matter though since nothing has happened.

All I've been doing to past few days is going to work.

Eclipse premiered at midnight last night, and Avatar premieres tonight at midnight! I may actually get to see those movies on Saturday.  Hopefully, I get to see both.

I've watched episodes 77 and 78 of Naruto.  They were both great episodes.  The show just keeps getting better.  I'm on season four now!

I finished Official Guide to the to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.  I also read all of the Look-It-Up Book of American Presidents which was interesting.  Now I'm reading The Twilight Companion which is a pretty funny book so far.  The author makes a lot of jokes.

I also uploaded chapter nine of my fanfiction last night.  I think it was the fastest I've ever updated my fanfiction (less than a month).  I hope I'm able to keep it up.

Days Until:
The Last Airbender Movie: 1 (Midnight tonight!)
(There's a big gap here of nothing exciting happening.  We're going back to Florida some where in between here to go to the Wizarding World, but I'm not sure the exact day.  When I find out, I'll put it here.)

Lazy Summer Days

I haven't done much the past two days. I've pretty much just read, got on the Internet, and stuff.  I'm such an exciting person, I know.

I watched episode 76 of Naruto last night.  It was the best episode yet!  *SPOILERS* I feel so sorry for Gaara.  His story is so sad!  He's my second favorite character now (after Hinata).

That's pretty much all...

Days Until:
Eclipse: Illustrated Movie Companion: 2
Eclipse Movie: 3
The Last Airbender Movie: 4
Mockingjay Book: 57
Deathly Hallow Part 1 Movie: 144

Work, Work, Work

I haven't really done anything in the three days since my last post except go to work and babysit.  I worked from five to nine on Wednesday and Thursday, and I babysat my little cousin Michael today from around one to around six.  That's probably all I'll be doing for a while...  Isn't my life exciting?

Other than that, I've done pretty much nothing.

I've written some of Avatar: The Next Generation.  The next chapter should be up soon.

I'm going to see if I can figure out how to edit videos from my new camera tomorrow.  If I can figure it out, then I should get at least a few new videos up on Youtube tomorrow.

I watched episode 75 of Naruto and it was amazing!  I loved it!  The Gaara/Sasuke fight is awesome! *SPOILER* As soon as Sasuke collapsed I knew Naruto and the rest of them would show up.  It was awesome!

I finished Just the Facts About Washington D.C.  It was really interesting.  I also read If You Lived at the Time of the Civil War.  It may be a children's book, but it was still interesting.  Even if I knew pretty much everything they said already...  I've started reading Official Guide the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.  I really need to get the books that I bought in Washington, D.C. last summer read.

And I think that's pretty much it.

Early Mornings

Nothing has really happened the past two days.  I haven't gone anywhere except work which was incredibly slow.  Only a few people came in both days, so I mainly just sit there and read (which is what I usually do anyway but still).

I don't know why, but I've woken up early the past two days.  I woke up at nine this morning!  I can't remember the last time I woke up that early when I didn't have to.  I guess it's a good thing since I have more time in the day.

I've watched three episodes of Naruto (72, 73, and 74) since I last blogged about it.  I loved all of them!  The episodes just keep getting better and better.

I've been reading Just the Facts About Washington D.C.  I've learned a lot of really cool stuff from there.

That's pretty much all I've done the past two days.

I can't believe that it's been about a month since the last day of school!  Summer break goes by so quickly!

Summer Vacation 2010: Florida Part 3

Hopefully now that vacation is over, I'll get better at updating.  Five days is a long time.

The rest of vacation was good except for Friday.  We didn't get into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and everything else seemed to go wrong.  We're planning on going back sometime this summer and go the the Harry Potter park.  Hopefully everything goes better that time.

On the way home, I finished reading The First Ladies of the United States of America.  It was interesting and I learned some stuff about the First Ladies.  Now I'm reading Just the Facts About Washington D.C. and it's pretty good so far.

We just got home from picking our dogs Mickey and Poppy up from where they were staying while we were gone.  It's so good to see them after so long.

I have to work the next four days.  I'm not looking forward to it, but after this I'm probably done working there this summer.

Summer Vacation 2010: Florida Part 2

I'm going to try to keep this post short.  We did a lot of things the past two days, and it would take forever for me to think of them all.

Yesterday we went to Sea World.  It was awesome.  Here are my five favorite things we did yesterday (in no particular order):  1.  We fed dolphins.  It was amazing. They're one of my favorite animals, and it was so cool. 2.  We got to see baby dolphins.  They were so cute!  3.  I rode my first upside down roller coaster and my second.  4. We watched the Shamu Believe show, dolphin show, and the sea lion, otter, walrus show.  Believe and the dolphin show were amazing and the sea lion one was hilarious.  5. We rode this Atlantis ride which is a lot like Splash Mountain at Disney.  There's this part at the end though were it's kind of like a roller coaster that you're not expecting.

Today we went to the Kennedy Space Center.  It was also a lot of fun.  The five things for it:  1. We got to see people actually building parts for the International Space Station.  2.  We watched reenacments of things such as Neil Armstrong walking on the Moon.  It was really cool.  3. We watched this Star Trek Live show which was really cheesy but funny.  4. We got to see the launch pads for the space shuttles even if they were way back in the distance.  5. We got to go in an actual space shuttle and see the inside.

After we left the Space Center and ate dinner, my sister wanted to ride this sling shot thing.  She some how got my to ride with her.  It shoots you over three hundred feet in the air just like a sling shot.  You could hear them scream from the ground.  It was hilarious.  Regina bought the DVD of their faces while they're riding.  It's probably one of the funniest things I've seen.

Summer Vacation 2010: Florida Part 1

It's been four days!  I thought I'd be able to write a blog at the hotel outside of Tampa, but the Internet connection sucked so it didn't happen.  There's so much to talk about, but at the same time not that much.  That probably made no sense to anyone but me.

We left early Thursday and went to pick up my grandma.  We spent all day driving, and then spent the night at my aunt and uncle's house.  Then, we drove all day Friday until we got to my family in Florida's house.

We just visited with family all week.  We had a birthday party for my (third) cousin Aaron on Saturday.  That's pretty much all we did.

We got to Orlando today, and I think we're going to Sea World tomorrow.  I'll try to write a post about it tomorrow,

I've been filming videos, but I didn't really get much of my family.  It's weird telling them I put videos on Youtube.  Besides, I only have two hours of film for the whole trip, and I'm going to film a ton a the Harry Potter theme park.

I updated my fanfiction the other day.  The crappy Internet at the other hotel was at least good enough for that.  You can read it over here.

I finished reading The Official Guide to the Smithsonian on the way down here.  It was interesting.  I also read the People magazine Twilight Edition.  It was cool.  Now I've reading The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.  It's really good so far.

We watched the new Alice in Wonderland on the way down here.  It was good I guess, but not completely awesome.  Of course, that's probably because I felt horrible while watching it, and I was never a fan of Alice in Wonderland anyway.

Wednesday, June 9, 2010


It's been a few days since I posted because nothing's really happened.  I guess that's not entirely true.  Monday was kind of eventful, but I don't really want to talk about how my sister had a huge temper tantrum in public over her cell phone.  (She'll probably get mad if she sees how I described it...  There aren't really any other words though.)

I got the Eclipse novella, Pretties (the next Uglies book), and some book about Twilight on Monday too.  I wanted to get the book that wrote, but I couldn't find it.  Hopefully, I'll be able to find it some where eventually.

Yesterday and today I didn't even leave the house.  I've been uploading a lot of videos to Youtube before we leave tomorrow.  I still have three more, but they're being difficult and don't want to load.  I'll have to try again when we get back.  Of course, then I'll have a bunch of videos from vacation too.  I'm so excited!

I may twitpic the pictures I take on vacation or may not.  We'll see.  I'll twitpic some from my phone while we're down there, but all of the good pictures will be on my camera.

I've been watching Naruto a lot lately.  I've watched four eosides (68, 69, 70, and 71) since my last post.  They were all great.  The last one (71) kind of freaked me out a little.

My mom bought a bunch of movies we haven't seen before for us to watch on our way down.  I'm excited because just a couple of them are the new Alice in Wonderland and The Boy in Striped Pajamas.  Apparently we've had Boy in Striped Pajamas for a while and I didn't know about it which sucks because I've really want to see it (partly because of the story and partly because David Thewlis who plays Remus Lupin in Harry Potter is in it).  I'm too obsessed with Harry Potter...

We leave on vacation tomorrow! I can't believe it!  I probably won't be able to sleep tonight which is really bad considering I have to get up at five in the morning.

Long Weekend

It's been four days!  It's not that I was busy this weekend necessarily, but I was with family so I didn't get around to writing a blog post.

I didn't really do anything on Thursday but work.  I worked on Friday too, and when I got home my grandma and three of my cousins were over.  My grandma stayed with us this weekend because my mom and dad were away.  My dad's studying to become a deacon.  (Don't know what that is?  Here.)

On Friday night, we went out to eat at this local restaurant, and then went home while I watched New Moon with my grandma (who'd never seen Twilight or New Moon) and my sister, brother, and cousins played poker (but not with money).

We might have done something else, but I don't remember...  I know I forced everyone to sit through six episodes of Avatar at some point, but I think that was Saturday...

On Saturday morning, I watched (and my family watched part of) the first episode of Kekkaishi which aired on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim last Saturday.  I liked it.  I recorded the second episode last night, but haven't watched it yet.

We went out to eat at this local Mexican restaurant on Saturday, and when we got back home.  I watched Half Blood Prince with my grandma and brother.  My grandma had seen the other Harry Potter's but hadn't seen HBP yet.

We didn't really do anything today except go to church.  We got the worker's list for our church's summer social today.  I'm working in Kiddie Land and at the stuffed animal wheel.  It'll be my first time working those, so hopefully everything goes well.  The summer social isn't until July, so we've got a while.

It wasn't really a busy weekend, but it wore me out.  I feel like I didn't get much sleep this weekend, yet I didn't really go to bed later then normal and on Saturday I slept until noon.  I don't know.  It was a long weekend.

I watched episodes 66 and 67 of Naruto, and they were awesome.  I really loved episode 67.  It may be my favorite episode so far.

Stranded at a Theme Park

I haven't really done anything the past three days.  I've only left the house for work yesterday and today.  Nothing exciting has happened.

My best friend Summer did get stranded at a theme park today.  This theme park is about an hour away from where we live.  She was supposed to go home with our other friend Kelsey who works at the park.  Kelsey was working until closing and was then going to pick Summer up from the front entrance.  Kelsey was really late and workers were coming up to Summer asking if she was okay and stuff because she was the only guest still at the park.  Meanwhile, she's texting me while I'm at work and freaking out because she thinks Kelsey has forgotten her.  I'd called my dad to see if he could go pick her up when Kelsey finally showed up.  Apparently, she'd still been working even though other employees had been trying to find her and couldn't.  So, that's the only exciting thing that's happened the past few days and it actually happened to my best friend.

I've watched both episode 64 and 65 of Naruto.  I'm so glad that Sasuke is back!  I can't wait to see the fight between Sasuke and Gaara.
