Wow, December already. I’m both excited and scared.
Right now I should be asleep cause it’s 12:14 in the morning and I have to wake up early to go to work. Instead I’m watching The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which is definitely one of my alone “go to” films. I’m starting to realize how much I actually prefer watching movies alone. I mean there are some that I just need to share the experience with…like the Muppet movies or anything Pixar or Disney, but over all I’d…Continue
I’m very frustrated with myself. I’ve have all these ideas, these notions of what I want in life. Who I want to be, where I see myself in five years, could I ever be in a serious committed relationship… basically can I ever get myself together?
I am trying to find happiness and what it is to be happy.
I need a good reason to look for hope.

In which John digs deep into the insane story of nature's craziest mammal, the honey badger, which has become famous for its fearlessness but should be more widely appreciated for its other gifts, including loose skin, hideous farts, and a reputation baby cheetahs are glad to imitate. Note: If you see a honey badger, which live in Africa and Asia, WATCH OUT. They go straight…Continue
Listen, Jena. Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book is a ghostlier, deadlier, more joyful channeling of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. An infant’s parents are murdered, and the baby narrowly escapes the killer. Not into a jungle, though: into an old English graveyard. The Bagheera equivalent here is Silas, neither living nor dead (probably a vampire). Rather than wolves, two ghosts adopt the boy. The murderer is not a tiger, but a monstrous man…Continue
Finally our website is up and running!

This book was scary. Like really really scary (okay maybe not that much). But it was SOOOOOO good.
It's very gruesome in the way that Finnikin of the Rock was gruesome (gore and gross stuff) but for some reason I didn't mind as much--I guess I just liked the story more. It's SO well written and SO captivating and enthralling and everything. I liked David as a protagonist right from the start. I was fascinated by his…

Jena did you know Die Hard was a book first? Nothing Lasts Forever, by Roderick Thorp, renamed Die Hard later to tie in with the movie. From what I can tell, it’s a good thing the Bruce Willis flick is not a faithful adaptation.
This got me thinking about originalists, who…Continue

I was at a Barnes & Noble near where I live, and I was looking through the John Green books. I checked inside of all of the books, and was not surprised to find a little post-it note from a fellow nerdfighter. I checked the inside of the copy of Will Grayson Will Grayson that I was about to purchase, but I was sad to see that there was no post-it note on the inside cover of my book. Seeing that it was the only copy they had, I bought it…Continue
I'm an artist and a question I get a lot is "How do you do it?".
I can't tell people how to make art, but I can share my process. So, I made a FLOW CHART of AWESOME,
to give people an idea of what it takes, from the initial idea to the finished painting. Not every idea works, but
researching, making concept art, playing with color theories, talking about your idea with friends all help to make your
art a reality! I hope this is informitive, and if you…Continue

Listen, Jena, after that great lunch you whipped up yesterday I showed your brother my newly organized library and talked our way into the idea that books and stories make places and experiences immeasurably better.
Phrases like “those who can’t do teach” and “get your nose out of a book” suggest that reading about some exciting place is a poor or cowardly man’s way of seeing it for himself. The idea there is that reading is a poor imitation of actual experience.
I've been waiting the entire weekend so that i could get my hands on Mockingjay from the school library.
But turns out that it had been stolen. WHO THE F STEALS A BOOK FROM A LIBRARY!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
