08:04 pm: AVENGERS!!
I just have to say: I don't know where this "Avengers have a movie night" thing started--I'm pretty sure it was around before Avengers even premiered--but it is everywhere, and it is MY FAVORITE THING OF ALL THE THINGS.

02:16 pm: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
I need to write down everything that I think about the movie before I go seeking out other people's comments. So here's a big list, in no particular order, of all the things that I loved, that I disliked, and that took my breath away.

The end of an eraCollapse )

My life is complete now.

10:06 pm: Writer's Block: When I Was Young
What do you miss most about being a kid?

I've recently realized that I desperately miss Saturday morning cartoons. There was an enchantment in getting up on Saturday with a whole morning planned, a different show that I liked playing every half hour.

I also miss coming home from school and having a snack. Now, I eat pretty much whenever I want, and I take snacks with me to my classes; sometimes I even eat on the walk home. When I was in K-12, of course all the meals were set, and I'd come home hungry. It was a delight to sit at the table with a couple of homemade cookies, brushing off the remainder of the school day. The act had a touch of innocence.

04:43 pm: Only my mother and me and my hair
Hooray! I just got a hair cut! I now possess a sixteen-inch ponytail that I can sell for at least one month's rent, plus an adorably cute haircut that's rather Allison Mack-esque. I have been waiting for this day for more than two months. I'm so relieved.

Well, it's almost the end of 2008. It didn't feel like a full year; the digits "2008" never really settled well with me. But "2009" seems really wrong, too.

So much happened to me; so much changed. I survived my first year of college. I maintained my 4.0 (and I am so proud of myself I could explode). I worked retail for the first time (ick). I discovered that a dishroom job is actually much awesomer than retail (who knew?). I learned to use a kitchen without killing myself (shut up about the styrofoam, all right?). I gained 10 pounds and then lost 15. I finally decided my major. I wrote another novel. I think I'm happier and more self-aware.

Onward ho, into the future.

For some reason, this makes me happy.

11:50 am: Sing Me a Lullaby
Oooh, so sleepy. I was up far too late last night, registering for classes and working out my November budget. Hooray for trying to live on $350 a month when rent is $289! Good thing I have some savings. I'm going to have to get a really intense job over the summer.

NaNoWriMo is going well. I'm about half a day behind, but that's okay, because I'm going to get at least a day ahead this weekend, maybe two. The novel is being quite nice to me this year, surprisingly; I keep thinking of things that I actually want to write about, and my characters are a very sweet pair of girls whose interactions I'm enjoying.

I should be studying for a Brit Lit test right now, but what the heck. I don't feel like being responsible. Sometimes you have to just kick back and waste an hour on Facebook.

I'm sitting in the library at the moment. Gosh, I love this place. It's so huge and cozy at the same time. It makes me want to sit and read with a cup of cocoa in hand, except of course that's not allowed. A pity. Sometimes I do sneak in a Jamba in my backpack, though, which is some feat. I haven't had a Jamba in weeks--it's too expensive.

If I could buy anything in the world right now, I think it would be some real food. I keep eating like a college student, for some strange reason. Yesterday I had pizza, and all I could think was, Bliss! It's actually closer to real food than what I've been eating, which is mostly...granola bars. And cold cereal and toaster waffles. I do get a bit of fruit sometimes, but I don't know how I'm still alive. I should make a casserole tonight, or something, after I go grocery shopping.

12:54 pm: The Rocket's Red Glare

My mother just sent me that horrible "Obama is anti-America because of his flag pin shenanigans!" e-mail. I was completely horrified. I am pretty politically naive, but it was immediately obvious to me that that was a truckload of bunk. At the risk of embarrassing my dear mother, I had to forward an e-mail explaining how that info was false to all the people that she sent it to, which turned out to be about fifty people.

I feel bad, but it's my patriotic duty to screen people from lies about presidential candidates. I don't even particularly like Obama, and I doubt I'll be voting for him, but people already vote for bad reasons and I don't want to let one more lie slip by me unnoticed.

Also, I should be working on an essay, but I'm so full of Colbert-like rage that I can't focus on anything but the sad state of information-passing in our world.

How can I trust ANYBODY about the candidates when so many lies are swirling around like this?
