Mission Trip

After mass today, I went to a meeting at our church for this mission trip their doing for high schoolers and college kids.  It sounds like it's going to be really cool.  It's some organization or something doing it, and there will be a bunch of people from other churches and stuff.  We're going to somewhere in northern Indiana.  They said something about it being kind of near Notre Dame.  We'd be doing stuff like repairing and painting houses and working at a soup kitchen and stuff.  Apparently, there will also be concerts and stuff at night, and we'll have a mass there.  It's in June and should be a lot of fun.

I watched this week's episode of Kekkaishi earlier and loved it.  I thought Gen saying stuff about Yoshmori liking Tokine and Yoshimori denying it was cute.

I'll Never Understand Dreams

I'm not a person who usually remembers their dreams.  If I'm lucky, I usually remember one every four or five months or something like that.  Lately though I seem to be remembering them more often.  In the past week I've remembered two of them.  They were really strange. 

All I can remember about the first one is that my sister was dating some guy.  It was a guy we actually know, and she had a crush on him a few years ago.  I don't know where that dream came from though since she hasn't liked him for a long time, and I don't know why I'd dream about my sister dating a guy anyway.

The other dream was last night.  It was something about us buying a new dog.  I think it was supposed to be a brussels griffon just like the two dogs we have now, but it was a reddish color that I don't think a brussels griffon can be although I may be wrong.  Pretty much all I remember about that dream was playing with our "new dog" and the two dogs that we actually own.

I have no clue why I suddenly seem to be remembering my dreams more.

I made a tumblr which I never thought would happen.  You can check it out here.  If you don't know what tumblr is, it's a blog, but it's a lot different than blogs like this.  You can reblog others things and stuff.  Most of my (and other's) posts are of pictures and things.  I started doing this Avatar: The Last Airbender 30-day challenge thing over there too.  Basically I post something about A:TLA every day. So far, I've done favorite and least favorite episode.  I'm really getting into it which is strange considering I never got a tumblr before because I didn't think I'd like it.

I also watched episode 132 of Naruto last night.  I loved it.  *SPOILERS*  I kept freaking out during Sasuke and Naruto's fight.  It's just so emotional and everything.  (I'm so happy my best friend would never try to kill me.  Haha.)

I Hate When the Time Changes

I hate when the time changes.  It always makes me feel tired, and on top of that, I think it made me feel kind of sick this year.  My body doesn't like having it's schedule changed I guess.  I've felt horrible all day.

Apparently, Alexandre Desplat, who composed Deathly Hallows Part 1, is apparently coming back for part 2.  It's not a huge deal, but I was kind of hoping John Williams would came back for the last movie.

Also, filming apparently begins in Brazil tomorrow for Breaking Dawn.  Stephenie Meyer, Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson have apparently be seen down there already.  I'm torn because this means the movie is being made and there will be news again, but for some reason, all of the set pictures sometimes annoy me.  It just seems like they're everywhere, and I don't really care that much to be honest.  Some of them are fine, but you see hundreds of them, and it gets boring after a while.

Kind of on the same topic, aince DH Part 1 is coming out soon, WB is releasing all this clips.  I hate when they do this!  WB always releases half of the movie before it's even out!  I want to see it in the movie theater when it's all in one piece!  Not in little clips here and there.  I haven't watched a single clip, just some TV spots and like one trailer.  Other people talk about how it's hard for them to resist, but it's honestly not for me.  I guess I want to see it in the movie theater first so badly that I don't really care.

Wow, you can tell I feel horrible by how much I complain in this post.  Sorry about that.  Moving on to more positive things.

I just got done watching episode 131 of Naruto.  Awesome episode.  *SPOILERS* It's pretty much the same as I said yesterday: I really like flashback episodes for some reason.  I know Sasuke's getting ready to try and kill Naruto, but I still really liked that he said Naruto had become his best friend.  Ugh, Sasuke is really making me mad.  He's so annoying now!  (So much for being positive.)

I posted my video for The Seven Awesome Nerds (7AN) this week just a minute ago.  You can watch it here.

I also posted chapter 17 of Avatar: The Next Generation last night.  You can read it on my writing blog or on my account.

I Can't Wait For The Legend of Korra!

Most people reading this probably know that I'm a HUGE Avatar: The Last Airbender fan, I'm obviously really looking forward the The Legend of Korra.  I was so excited to see that there's a line test going around the Internet.  Most of you probably have no clue what a line test is (I don't really know either other than what I've learned today).  It has something to do with testing animation apparently.  It's just drawings that are edited together to look like they're moving.  There's no color or anything yet.  It's kind of like those flip book things where you draw pictures and then flip the pages to make it look like it's moving.  The line test show's a fight.  I'm not sure who the characters are, but I'm asuming one is Korra.  You can watch it here.  I'm so excited for the show to premiere!

The only other thing I have to mention today is episode 130 of Naruto which I watched today.  Awesome episode!  I always love episodes with flash backs.  I don't know why.  I guess I just like learning background information about the characters.
