Something Nice That Happened Yesterday

Yeah. Yesterday I got an email. Someone had commented on a story I had on wattpad (not linking right now, because I will later, once it's finished) that I had completely forgoten about. It just so happens that that story is the one I am currently rewriting, and that the person who commented was wondering what happened next. The comment pretty much read: "Hey, write more, will ya? I wanna know what happens next!" or something along those lines. It made me happy that someone had been reading my writing, seeing as I thought no one ever would read it and like it, so that made my day.

I guess what I'm trying to say (and this goes on purple text because I felt like it) is: Don't be afraid to let others read your writing, even if you think it's terrible. True, you might not be doing so because you fear someone will copy it or something, but sometimes you have to give yourself a chance to be discovered. Who knows? What you think might be horrible writing, could in fact be gold to someone else. As they say, one person's trash = someone else's treasure. Let them read it and comment! You might be surprised at what they say. (Yeah, red text now) And by the way, it does feel nice to receive positive feedback ^.^ It's like "Oh someone liked it! I could just brag about this now (not that I will of course, hehe...)."

El libro más aburrido en la historia (después de "El niño que enloqueció del amor")

To the world- my first post in Spanish, because I decided the content was better worded in Spanish than in English, given the fact that it's a rant in Spanish in my head. I might not go through the trouble of translating this, so yeah...

Hoy mami me mandó a leer el libro que tengo de lectura de verano para la clase de español. El tedioso libro se llama "Leyendas Puertorriqueñas" por Cayetano Coll y Toste. Estuve sentada, acostada, acurrucada, parada, etc. durante par de horas leyendo leyendas que ya había escuchado anteriormente, y que en ocasiones no hacían sentido alguno. El vocabulario muy rebuscado hizo difícil la lectura, sin tomar en cuenta que incluye palabras en el lenguaje taíno. Claro, muchas de esas palabras las había escuchado antes, pero aún no entiendo el punto de tener un vocabulario tan complicado para contar algo que se puede decir de una manera mucho más simple. También pasé todo ese tiempo que estuve leyendo preguntandome para qué rayos me será necesario saber todas estas leyendas que probablemente vamos a tener que sobre-analizar en la escuela... así que un llamado a todas las maestras de español (y de inglés también, ya de una vez, para que sepan):
  1. Si van a poner un libro como lectura de verano, por favor, que sea interesante. Gracias.
  2. No nos forcen a sobre-analizar lecturas que de cualquier otra manera serían interesantes. Es muy posible que el autor o la autora no lo escribió con el propósito de que te pongas a pensar si el color de pelo representa estatus social o algo por el estilo. ¿Quién sabe? Tal vez lo escribió solamente por matar el aburrimiento. Gracias.
  3. No nos bombardeen con preguntas sin sentido. Gracias de nuevo.

Japanese Music

So today I got bored and it was raining. My friend (with whom I was chatting on Facebook) sent me a link to a song in Japanese, which I forgot about an hour ago. Anyway, that made me remember a bunch of Japanese songs I like since 6th-7th grade. I decided to download them (from uh... sources. Yeah, Google helps. A lot.) and now I have a few of them in my iPod. The songs I downloaded by the way, are:
  • Again - Yui
  • Rolling Star - Yui
  • Purachina - Maaya Sakamoto
    • This song has an English version actually, called Platinum, but you need to look for it. Some people call the Japanese version Platinum anyhow, which makes it hard to find.
  • Loop - Maaya Sakamoto
  • Blaze - Kinya
And I also downloaded the opening (the full version of the song) from W.I.T.C.H. and was wondering if anyone remembers that TV show. I loved it so much when I was younger and I never did figure out why they stopped airing it altogether, instead of playing re-runs in Jetix.

Thank you ^.^ those three people who have decided to follow me and my random ramblings, thank you :D It makes me happy to know people somewhere out there are reading my blog. Also, feel free to comment... I like comments :) Just no spam please, and I'd appreciate if the comments aren't negative. You know, teenager = fragile self-esteem and what-not. Anyhow, thank you again :D

Iguana in my Backyard

So yeah, there's an iguana practically living in my backyard. Yesterday, it tried to get into my house, as you can see by this picture:

In my opinion it's rather cute, but then again, I am weird. But seriously, look at that! If you're wondering it was around 3 feet long, but that's just me estimating from the couch, and could be wrong since it was all curled up, as you can see. Oh, here it is in close-up:
I was gonna take more pictures, but I scared it away...

Also, my dad told me he rescued it some time ago from within one of his cars (he has a few old cars in our backyard). This iguana also ate lettuce from my science fair experiment in 6th grade, and is currently munching on my mom's attempts at gardening. Oh well, what can we do?

I'm thinking...

I'm thinking I should record myself singing something. I've been thinking about this for some time now (as some might know), but I still can't decide what song to sing. I can sing just about anything, I think, the only problem is deciding what to sing.

I'm also thinking about recording myself playing In Die Nacht by Tokio Hotel. I figured out two days ago how to play it with my wonderful guitar. I actually played it long enough that my fingers started to hurt xD
Anyhow, yeah. I have to do that.

And also, I should be writing (still).

And according to this video, Pi is wrong! This is so weird...

I Should be Writing (Instead of Posting Here)

Yes people, I should be writing, as of now. My word goal for the month is 50,000 (50k) and by today I should have 24,195 but I only have (get ready for it).... 18,678. Yeah, with the last three digits in sequence, that made me feel special. Very. But that's not the point.

The point here is that I should be writing, and I'm not, and I have a horrible problem that presents itself to many writers such as I. I have writer's block. Dreadful. Which is why I have a book right next to me, three tabs open in IE, and the tv turned on to- wait, why am I watching that?! *changes channel*- ahem, the tv turned on to a crime scene investigation sort of tv show, you know, because I learn from that.

So, in a story about alien/human hybrids escaping Area 51 (that's all I'm telling you for now), what would you expect? I really need ideas. Thanks.

Harry Potter Frenzy

So what with my mom's birthday coming up and the Harry Potter premiere as well, I have decided a few things:
-I would look awesome with purple hair, and thus, I could go dressed as Tonks.
-I just had to get myself a Hogwarts robe snuggie. So soft...
-I need to watch all the previous movies back to back in a sort of marathon.
-It's fun to roleplay Harry Potter characters in Facebook chat. (yes, I have Facebook, no, I can't add you, sorry)
-Luna Lovegood pwns.

And so I have decided I will temp-dye my hair purple for the movie, and I'll go wearing my t-shirt that has a Luna quote ("I can see them too. You're just as sane as I am.") and I'll bring my snuggie instead of a jacket. I'll also bring my wand (shhh...) and I'll be ridiculously happy that day :D
