So my friend Amy came over tonight with her brother Joshua as we were having a sleepover ;D Amy walked into my room to look at my reorganized bookshelf that I wrote about in an earlier post this week. She and her brother have been in my room nearly 1000 times and they know where everything is and whatnot.
However, on this journey into my abode, after Amy had observed the changes I made, she turned around to head back to the exit. Suddenly, she cried out and held her hands before her, averting her gaze. Her brother and I turned back and looked at her incredulously, wondering what was making her so abashed.She stammered: “W-What are those?”
And I replied: “What is what?”
I finally walked over and looked at what she was pointing to, which was a pile of my schoolbooks and other school items, one of which included ink cartridges. Again, I replied: “What is what?”
Amy: “The…The…the boxes. Ohmygoodness Alec. Ohmygoodness.”
Me: “What? The INK CARTRIDGES?”
Amy: “Oh. Wait…. those are ink cartridges? I thought they were……..”
Me: “What Amy? What DID you think they were? Do you care to tell us?”
Amy: ” I thought they were….nothing……………………..”
WE’VE GOT A WAKER! *in british accent*<—This is from Arthur Christmas, the movie we watched tonight. Amy couldn’t get over this either.
- teenagers on every other day of the year: UGH MY PARENTS ARE SO STUPID THEY WON'T LET ME DO ANYTHING! THEY WON'T LET ME GET THIS OR THAT AND THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW I FEEL! I HATE THOSE PEOPLE THAT I CALL "FRIENDS" BUT THEY NEVER PAY ATTENTION TO ME. I HATE SCHOOL. I HATE EVERYTHING. I HATE LIFE!
- teenagers on thanksgiving: I'm thankful for my family, especially my parents! I love them so much for having me and raising me to be who I am now! I'm also thankful for all that I have now and I'm content with it. I'm thankful for the life that I live and people that are in it. I love my friends with all my heart. :) I'm just thankful for everything! Happy Thanksgiving!
Tonight I rearranged all my books. I don’t really know why. Probably because my mom kept finding the books I left around and putting them in random places on my bookshelf.
Aside from why I did it, as I was accomplishing this task, I realized I order my books strangely:
1) “Smart” books (Candide, Odyssey, In Cold Blood, etc. Basically everything I’ve had to read for school and that I’ve actually liked.)
2) Classics (HP, Hunger Games, A Series of Unfortunate Events, others that are definers of our generation)
3) Series (Books that have companions or sequels. They all go together and make a pretty line with pretty colors and pretty symmetry. :D)
4) Series/Classics that I’m embarrassed of, but still read and sort of enjoyed. (Twilight……………………….and maybe one or two other ones. They all mainly go in the back where light never reaches them.)
5) Manga (this sadly takes up too much room.)
6) Children’s books (books that I have that represent/remind me of a time from my childhood/adolescence and that I consider classical, but others may not)
7) and finally, “the books I’m sort of ashamed/embarrassed to have read because they had good prequels, but not good sequels, and they tricked me into buying the sequels.” (Dan Brown’s series [it just went from amazing to worst], twilight…..again………………….and others.)
I also realized I used to have the smaller books in the front so I can see the taller books in the back (I can have a row of two books on one shelf)…..but then I realized Twilight was BLOCKING HARRY POTTER, and I thought to myself “WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!”. So I decided to just show off the better series’ and books instead of trying to be efficient with space, because some books just can’t go in front of others. It’s not fair to them.
My extended family (the Chinese side), my family, and I always go to the theaters to watch a movie together before actually eating food and staring awkwardly at each other (this last part is what the cousins do.) It actually started only a few years ago when the Blind Side came out and for some reason we ended up at the theaters. I was SO against blind side, I was actually trying to think of ways to get out of having to watch it with them. But as we all know, that was an AMAZING film :P
Anyhoo, THIS thanksgiving is probably happen the same as always, and we’re going to see a film. Except I don’t want to watch A film. I want to watch THREE films. Muppets, Hugo, and Arthur Christmas. They’re all supposed to be really good. Luckily we’re probably watching the Muppets which is something I REALLY want to see, and I’m uber glad it’s getting good ratings and everything, but Hugo and Arthur Christmas are surprises that I’m really interested in too. :/ And I don’t want to pay the ticket for those two movies! It’s so expensive! Why can’t my family pay for it like they are with the muppets!? D:
