11/12 - Random thoughts of the day

Hello Nerdfighters and people in the interwebs,

So, I've always wanted to put together a little blog of things I think during the day, things I do, etc. While I know few people will give a rat's ass about my thoughts and things I do.... if I've learn something from the past two months of craziness ( lost my jobs, moved into my parents place, got my yoga training certification,working on phd applications, etc.) is that I need to act on the things I say. I talk a lot...A LOT... ask…

Project for Awesome 2012 - Save the Music

Yay Project for Awesome! This is my first time participating as a vlogger, and if you could take the time to watch, I'd really appreciate it. Being in music programs has shaped much of my life, which is why for this year's video, I talk about VH1's Save the Music Foundation.

Project for Awesome!

Hello everyone! 

It's been far too long since I made a blog post and I do apolgize about that. I won't go into detail as to why because you know what? We have far more important business to talk about and that is PROJECT FOR AWESOME! (Yes, I totally wrote that in all caps to bring the attention to those words. I also didn't prepare this post so let's see how this goes.)

Anyways, it's that time of year again people! It's that time in…

I just finished Looking For Alaska for the second time in my life. The first time I read it I was in seventh grade and didn't like it all that much. Now, 6 years later, I am a nerdfighter and I have read all of John Green's books. The second time reading Looking for Alaska was definitely more impressionable than the first time. It meant a lot more to me. I am so glad that I gave it a second chance and that I read all of John's books even though I didn't like the first one I had read.

I'm super exited about it and can't wait to get to work on it. If any one is interested, use the link bellow.

to that anonymous nerdfighter who goes around glasgow putting letters into books

So I recently bought Looking for Alaska, when I was on vacation in Glasgow.

I'd meant to read it for years.

And I didn't start reading until I was back home.

And as I opened the book, out fell this letter.

And here's what it said:…

Golden Age Thinking

*Please note, this entry contains mild spoilers from the movie Midnight in Paris. So, if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend that you do  :).



I recently watched the Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris. It's the kind of movie I could watch over and over and still experience it again for the first time. The main character, Gil, played by Owen Wilson, reminded me quite a lot of myself. He wants to be a writer, loves the…

AHHHHHH!!!!

This is my first post and the blinking cusor is intimidating. In front of me is a beautiful blank canvas and I am expected to fill it with my thoughts and my mindless wonders.  My computer obviously shows no sympathy, the cursor just blinks and blinks (I think it's mocking me)... But if we want to get deep and philosophical I guess the blinking cursor and the blank canvas could be a metaphor for life. (Cheese Alert!!!) We are born so pure, innocent and naive, like the blank text box. We…

Book Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs

Yes, I got around to reading this book at last!  I think it is one of the first books I added to my to-read list on goodreads when I first joined over a year ago... and it's never been available in the library when I go.  Until last week.  

I don't know what I was expecting, but it was not this.  The way the beginning is written it seems almost like a memoir--so realistic and logical, and even when something crazy happens it's immediately explained with the words "psychotic…

Rush Babes

Rush Limbaugh, famed for his over the top conservatism and degradation of women, has started a page on Facebook. This page is known as "Rush Babes for America," and it is "a Facebook Page dedicated to the millions of conservative women who know what they believe in: family, American Values, and not being told by Faux Feminist Groups how to think."

...

If your thoughts are like mine, you would have yelled at the screen, "and being told what you believe are true…

My Final Class Reactions 2012

So, at the beginning of this semester, I wrote a blog about my first reactions to my classes. I am now going to give you my final reactions. Last semester, I did this in vlog form and I didn't like it as much, so I'm switching it back to blog. Yay! Here we go.

"British Lit to 1660: I think this will be a fun class. As the name states, we'll be looking at early British literature. I had a class like this for my senior english class, but I think it will be more informative on the…
