Life must be understood backwards, but we often forget that it also must be lived forwards.

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate Christmas~~!!

Wow, this is one late entry… or an early one. But since my internal clock is still on Christmas Day, I’ll stick to the late entry~

Christmas is that time of year that you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It also means hanging around with family you haven’t seen in a while, and friends who have been lost through life in the past years. It’s the time to just give and receive gifts and eat large meals followed by many desserts~~

Yesterday, my dad’s brother, so my uncle held this big bash which consisted of about thirty people, give or take, and it was way fun. My cousins K, R, and E were there, though, K and R kind of had to be, since it was their house, and then their mom’s side came over as well, so it ended up being, K, R, E, A, N, J, M, B, and me, my brother, and my sister. Lot’s of semi-kids hanging out! Through the whole party, we spent most of our time in K’s room, playing with her iPod Touch, her laptop, her DS, and her guitar. Their second floor is like a large circle, so A, N, E, B and my Bro, Ch, ran around the circle a thousand times, either chasing each other or rolling around K’s excerise ball. At one point, N pissed both my sister and I off, so we chased him around the circle, while Ch, B, and E ducked, covered and screamed, laying themselves out flat on the ground, and since their 8 and younger they weren’t really in the way, and while we chased N, A continuously screamed out “ROADKILL” everytime we jumped over one of them. As odd as that sounds, it was hilarious beyond belief at the time. At another point in the party, I had my camera and flashed the green ‘ready’ light into A’s eyes saying ‘I blind you!’ while he screamed ‘DAMN YOU ARE BLINDING ME’ that was epically funny.

I have to say, A, N, and B are extremely hilarious beyond belief. Everytime I see them, I usually end up laughing non-stop!!

So today was Christmas Day, and like most families, we opened our gifts. I got a ton of stuff, which I’m happy about. Though not spoiled, I usually get a lot on Christmas and on my birthday, so twice a year isn’t bad. I got 8 books, candy, jewellery, materials to make jewellery, a dvd, an mp3, a watch, and a DS game. I’m set for the year, I think. Then, my family went out for lunch with my mom’s parents, and then went to dinner with my dad’s side, again, but it was a smaller crowd, for K and R’s family had begun their trip down to Orlando at five in the morning. It was fun, since my uncle’s house is practically an arcade, with pinball machines, casino games, and regular arcade games, like those with guns and car racing. Everytime I go there, there always seems to be a new game there to play and enjoy~

I want to wish a Merry Christmas to all my friends, and to those who celebrate Christmas, and for those who don’t, I’d like to wish them luck with Boxing day hunting~ =)

Shadowland~

For the past few weeks, I’ve been running around trying to find a newly released book called Shadowland by Alyson Noel… but I have yet to find it… so sad…

It’s the third book to a trilogy called The Immortals. The first two books are Evermore and Blue Moon. They’re pretty good, I think. And I seriously want to buy the last one. *sad*

Evermore: Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people”s thoughts, and know a person”s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school-but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she”s thinking-and he”s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn”t know who he really is-or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

Blue Moon: Ever can bring her family back from the dead-but only if she”s willing to sacrifice the guy she loves more than life itself. Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever”s powers are increasing, Damen”s are fading-stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life. Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, uncovering not only the secrets of Damen”s past-the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden-but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them-or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day…

Shadowland: Ever and Damen have traveled through countless past lives-and fought off the world’s darkest enemies-so they could be together forever. But just when their long-awaited destiny is finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon Damen…one that could destroy everything. Now a single touch of their hands or a soft brush of their lips could mean sudden death-plunging Damen into the Shadowland. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick-and gets help from an unexpected source…a surfer named Jude. Although she and Jude have only just met, he feels startlingly familiar. Despite her fierce loyalty to Damen, Ever is drawn to Jude, a green-eyed golden boy with magical talents and a mysterious past. She’s always believed Damen to be her soulmate and one true love-and she still believes it to be true. But as Damen pulls away to save them, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger-and tests her love for Damen like never before…

Can’t wait to find Shadowland!
