Radiant Shadows

So this weekend I saw three movies (not in theaters..) : My Sister’s Keeper, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and Up. My Sister’s Keeper was really good, but it was totally different from the book, Campbell had some relationship problems with the guardian ad litem, Julia, who wasn’t even in the movie… and then Jesse had way more problems in the book than in the movie. Lastly, the ending was totally and epically not the same…. not. at. all.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was weird, that’s all I can say about it…
Up was cute. I had seen the beginning on my friend’s mp3/mp4 once, but I hadn’t seen the end until yesterday, it was really, really good~ and it had a moral to it too =]

I still need to do my biography… I have yet to understand what I’m supposed to do for it though…

This is a catchy song, she has a lot of talent. Yes, she. Tanya Manibusan~
Pardon the language….

This song is also really addictive…

Wasabi

Today is my dad’s birthday (Happy Birthday Dad!) <- he’ll never see that …

So anyways, in honour of his birthday, we went to Wasabi, the Japanese Buffet~

Photobucket

Photobucket

It’s not a bad restaurant~ The food’s pretty good, but I’ve had better… eh, whatever, my dad liked it, that’s all that matters (today that is…)
I gave my dad my bandsaw box (the tree one) and a card I made starring Snoopy (my dad’s favourite character of all time) He liked it, so once again, s’all good =]

I have a bunch of bio to do and my biography… Sigh. This is so boring, mainly because biology is always boring… and I really don’t want to write a biography on tiger woods, or anyone else for that matter.

I bought Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr, the fourth book to the Wicked Lovely series. I’m glad I bought it and all, but I still have a pile at school to burn through… plus my teacher’s book. This is going to take some time….

Currently: thinking about doing work…

Sick

Ugh. I’m sick today. I was sick yesterday too I guess…
I haven’t really been posting any actual ‘daily life’ posts for a while, just poems… I just noticed that.
So I was going to post yesterday, I really was… but then I almost collapsed, so I ended up just sleeping at 9pm. Ironic that in Bio I’m learning about viruses and stuff, and suddenly, I get one.

I have a Business test tomorrow. That will be fun, seeing as I won’t have the review stuff I’m supposed to get today… Yeah I’m home…
Then I have a Biology quiz on Friday. Even more fun. Sigh.
Also, sometime between tomorrow and another day, I have a Bio assignment due and then a tech assignment… I should really start those…

Tomorrow’s my sister’s birthday, so I’m making her present right now, a bracelet. Hopefully it’ll turn out as I have planned it…

So yesterday before I had my like mental and physical breakdown (which did not happen because of the fact that..) I watched Gossip Girl. So Blair is back, yay~ as in she is queen and not some weak girl pining over her relatioship…and I do wonder if she and Chuck get back together… they were such a good couple~ Nate and Serena are just as good though~
Two more episodes (I believe) until season three is done. And then GG is on re-run (or no run…) mode until September. Next season, I think, is the last season of the epic and scandalous world of the Upper East Side, GG style. Also, Taylor Momsen will be gone from the last season, due to her band’s tour. Jessica Szohr will also be absent from a few of the fourth season’s episodes (so her relatioship with Dan will be post-poned) (YAY!).

Currently: Building my sister’s birthday present

Reading: Just finished The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz, will probably start to try to read Burned by P.C. and Kristen Cast

Giving Up Is Not An Option

I have a Business test tomorrow, a Biology quiz on Thursday, and then next week, I have a Biology assignment due on Wednesday, and our Tech doll house project is due. Great.

My favourite time of the day these days is racing this kid to the bus after school… My friend told me his name… er… started with a C… ah well… either way, he’s about the only kid that always gets out of school the same time as I do and we like run for the bus. It’s also about the only time of the day that I actually get exercise… Sometimes, having a fear of packed buses is usful~

Report Cards are on Monday and the release of the seventh (FML) book of the House of Nights Series is coming out on Tuesday. Joy. I can’t wait to get The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong~ The last book to the trilogy… or is it… my friend said there’s going to be another one after that call the The Beckoning… if there is then that’s another ‘Joy’ moment. I should really stop buying books. Thank goodness there’s such thing as libraries…

I’m on the last Midnighters book, Blue Noon, and I just got The Van Alen Legacy, the fourth book to the Blue Bloods series, from the library… I seriously need some sort of restraint on books… seriously…

Currently: Tired… still… and all I did was run for the bus with the C kid…I’m totally out of shape

Our Story Is Just Beginning~♪

Those are lyrics from ‘What You Mean To Me’ from Starstruck. I love Disney movies mainly because of the music in it. Though the stars aren’t bad, the storylines are all so cliche.

Apparently, Disney has recently decided to make a new TV series based on this extremely long books series Camp Confidential by Melissa J Morgan. I love the series, it’s definitely interesting… and REALLY REALLY long. I think it’s up to 22 books now…? Or 21. Either way, it’s a high number. But I have to say, it’s better than the Magic Treehouse Series. Oh god, that series is at, like, book #45 or something, and it’s still going, never, ever, ever, ever ending.
I think I seriously read too much..

Speaking of books though, I finished Uglies this morning. It was a really good book, full of adventure, and romance, and all that jazz. I can’t wait for tomorrow when I can borrow the second book~~

And on to tomorrow. It’s that time of the month kids… School. Back to school to be exact. Back to the gray hallways, the blue lockers, and the uncomfortable, red chairs. Time for lessons to start and piles of homework to pile up. Yay. I’m moody now, wait until the count down to September. I hate school, and next year will be classes straight from hell, well I think the math teacher is at least. *hate hate hate hate hate*

Currently: Trying to write my story. It’s not working…

Reading: Nothing. But I shall eventually read something…

Listening to: What You Mean To Me by Sterling Knight… or is it Drew Ryan Smith…

Whoops!

Canada lost their place on the podium for the skeleton after one of the Canadian ladies hit the wall, decreasing her speed, and increasing her time. She had a story, though another girl has one of those reality hitting kinds. One of those heartbreaking tear jerkers. She had started training for the skeleton a while ago, though soon after, her father was found to have bone marrow cancer. Because of this, she began to worry, like all would, for his life, his time here. She was at the world championship games, and right before her event, her father told her to do well, to try her best, and make him proud. He said he was doing fine, just fine. But he lied, like all parents do at times like this. So she ran her race, trying her best, saying to herself ‘this one’s for dad!’ She won silver in the event, but when she called back to her family that night, she found out that her father had past away, in that little time that had gone by.
I swear… just typing that made me cry (I’m so soft. I know.)
I can’t seem to remember her name… I suck at those things… sorry…I think it might be Amy Gough… though I can’t be sure… She finished seventh in Skeleton though… while Melissa Hollingsworth, a country girl from Alberta, finished fifth, though she had been second for a while, her score dropped slightly…

I noticed people have been searching these things, so I thought I should post it up.
When I look at my stats, people look at my blog because they typed in something like ‘about miga, sumi, and quatchi’ or something like that..
so…
If you go to this link: http://www.vancouver2010.com/mascot/en/game_mascotquiz.php
Then you can find out which mascot you’re most like~
I’m like Miga! Aha~ but you might not want to look down if you’re planning to take the quiz. That’s cheating!

Quatchi:
Quatchi is a young sasquatch who comes from the mysterious forests of Canada. Quatchi is shy, but loves to explore new places and meet new friends.

Although Quatchi loves all winter sports, he’s especially fond of hockey. He dreams of becoming a world-famous goalie. Because of his large size, he can be a little clumsy. But no one can question his passion. He knows that if he works hard and always does his best, he might one day achieve his dream. Quatchi is always encouraging his friends to join him on journeys across Canada. He is also often recruiting others to play hockey – or at least to take shots at him!

The sasquatch is a popular figure in local native legends of the Pacific West Coast. The sasquatch reminds us of the mystery and wonder that exist in the natural world, igniting our imagination about the possibility of undiscovered creatures in the great Canadian wilderness.

Miga:
Miga is a young sea bear who lives in the ocean with her family pod, beyond Vancouver Island, near Tofino, British Columbia. Sea bears are part killer whale and part bear. (Miga is part Kermode bear, a rare white bear that only lives in British Columbia.)

All summer long, Miga rides waves with local surfers. But during the winter months, she often sneaks onto the shores of Vancouver to seek adventure. When Miga discovered that humans were ‘surfing’ on snow, up in the mountains, she knew she had to join the fun. Snowboarding soon became her favourite winter sport. Her dream is to land a corked 720 in the half-pipe one day…It will take lots of practice, and a few falls along the way, but she’s sure she can do it.

The sea bear is inspired by the legends of the Pacific Northwest First Nations, tales of orca whales that transform into bears when they arrive on land. The Kermode bear is a rare white or cream-coloured sub-species of the black bear that is unique to the central West Coast of British Columbia. According to First Nations’ legend, Kermode bears – also known as Spirit Bears – were turned white by Raven to remind people of the Ice Age. Orcas are also honoured in the art and stories of West Coast First Nations, as travellers and guardians of the sea.

Sumi:
Sumi is an animal spirit who lives in the mountains of British Columbia. Like many Canadians, Sumi’s background is drawn from many places. He wears the hat of the orca whale, flies with the wings of the mighty thunderbird and runs on the strong furry legs of the black bear.

Sumi’s name comes from the Salish word “Sumesh” which means “guardian spirit.” Sumi takes his role very seriously. He works hard to protect the land, water and creatures of his homeland. Sumi is a great fan of the Paralympic Games. He’s determined to learn all the sports, so he can play and race with his animal friends all winter long.

Transformation is a common theme in the art and legend of West Coast First Nations. Transformation represents the connection and kinship between the human, animal and spirit world. Revered animals, such as the orca whale, the bear and the thunderbird, are depicted in transformation through masks, totems and other forms of art. The orca is the traveller and guardian of the sea. The bear often represents strength and friendship. And the thunderbird — which creates thunder by flapping its wings — is one of the most powerful of the supernatural creatures.

Today was a snore. Just another boring day at school, doing work, getting bumped around by crowds in the hallways, blah, blah, blah.

This morning, my dad was driving us down to my grandparents place, and we saw a Viva bus on fire… it was quite alarming. However, it was burning across the street from the fire deparment, so all was well, once the flame was put out…
