Character Deaths

So…I love Sarah’s Scribbles and seem to be able to really relate to them. And I recently found a new one. Do you guys by the way ever feel that horrible sadness whenever one of your favorite characters dies? And it’s like, it did not happen. He/she is alive, I will survive through this, I just need to go back a few pages and everything will be fine:

Book Review: Gone by Michael Grant

So I finished the book Gone by Michael Grant. I seriously need to get the second book. Anyways, I think it was a great book! It kept me on edge, waiting to see what would happen when Sam would turn 15, what would happen to Caine, who is the ‘Darkness’, and how will they face Caine’s army of idiots? It reminded me of a Netflix kids series, the Spartacle Mystery, I think that’s what it was called. So, basically, the book is about a place called Perdido Beach. It centers around the characters, Sam Temple, Astrid Ellison, Peter Ellison, Caine Soren, Lana Arwen Azar, and some others. The main characters, along with the rest of the Perdido Beach, Coates Academy, etc. kids, are trapped in this place called the FAYZ (Fallout Alley Youth Zone) without anyone over 15 years old. They need to go against mutant animals and try and find out what happened to their parents without being able to go through the barrier. I seriously recommend this book!

Dance

Hey so…anyone watch World Of Dance??? I myself don’t dance, currently, but I am pretty good at Basketball and Swimming. If you guys are watching World of Dance, please put in the comments which dancer(s) you are rooting for. I am going for Josh and Taylor. I think they danced really well, and a great use of the prop. If you guys would like to watch their performance, click this link (found on the WorldwideDance channel on Youtube):

That and my second favorites till now are Sean Lew and Kaycee Rice (found on the NBC World of Dance Youtube channel). Imagine how much work it took to be able to dance that routine. And add a blindfold to that. If I tried that I would probably fall off the stage:

 

Cats?

So…I have never had a cat. I want to know if cat’s really are the demons that the internet makes them out to be. I mean like, I have met cats, they are adorable little creatures. Just…not when mad. And not when they’re Maine Coons ’cause those things are not little. So put in the comments, which you can access by clicking the title of this post, are cats adorable fuzzy thingies or aliens waiting to destroy us?

Procrastinating

Do you guys procrastinate? That and at times trip over the word procrastinate? Like, accidentally say procrastrinate or procastinate? Anyway, if you are a person that rarely or never procrastinate, I am proud of you. I, sadly, have a talent for procrastinating. Like, you need to do an assignment in two days and you’re like. I can do it later. *two days later at 11:00 pm* I swear I had to do something… Or you just spend the entire time you’re not doing the thing you’re supposed to do thinking about the thing you’re supposed to do. I probably should stop using the word thing so much.

Character Chemistry

So I found a pretty accurate description of what happens when I read books like Percy Jackson, Divergent, The Hunger Games, etc:

Shona

So…it is very important you see my dog the way she looked like a month ago:

 

I think she is the dictionary definition of adorable. She is a Blue Merle border collie. And has one black/brown eye and one blue eye. She now is 3 months old, so around 2 when this picture was taken. Also, she was-is not very coordinated:

Basically my dog.

Change for the Better?

Our world is advancing,

Its for the best they say.

but we are barely glancing,

as we walk on our way.

 

Attached to our screens,

Communicating by texting.

Phones are the lives of teens,

What happened to old fashioned talking?

 

Taking a walk outside,

is a thing of the past.

Not even a bycicle ride,

can get you out fast.

 

I wonder why we do this.

Phones, Computers, and Ipads,

are all what we need it appears.

Because talking face to face,

hasn’t been done in years.

 

Why is losing followers

such a big deal?

Doesn’t having a real friend,

give your life more appeal?

Our World (Haiku)

The green around us,

Is slowly disappearing,

We should start caring.

 

 

Its short, but what do you think?

Words

What are words?

Simply things you put on a page?

Or what you use to describe the birds?

They say words can’t hurt.

They can’t trap you in a cage.

Words can take away our confidence,

Make us throw away our favorite shirt.

But they can give us joy.

Make us fall in love,

Whether with a book, person, or song,

Use these words to build a picture,

And only for encouragement,

never in a way that’s wrong.
