Finished Dan Brown's latest book, Inferno. I absolutely love Angels and Demons, as well as The Da Vinci Code, but reaaaaally hated The Lost Symbol. But this one really takes the cake. I read Dante's Inferno for my Honors class my freshman year, and I thoroughly loved it, which is really morbid, since I would technically be burning in the circle of Heretics, and Dan Brown did a very good job of weaving a plot of intrigue around Dante's work. He also raised the very potent problem of…Continue

My goal is to read 50 books in the summer before college. Recently, I worked at a library for some volunteer work, in which there was a used book sale. I acquired approximately 25 books. I am hoping to read at least half by mid July. My question for all of you is do re-reading count?
So I leave San Diego in 2 weeks. I've yet to pack remaining clothes and supplies in 20+ lb boxes, and meanwhile friends who are already in college are writing out essays and working their brains to death like it's the junior year of high school again. Friends who are high school seniors are frantically getting to their college applications, and friends who are high school juniors are finally getting a taste of academic hell.
Meanwhile, I have little…Continue

I finally bought an interrail card for this summer. This summer me and two of my friends are going to travel all around Europe with just a backpack and a tiny budget. We're going to leave Sweden for three weeks and I think it's going to be awesome! So if any of you see three girls with t-shirts that says "Entertrainment - painting it red" (you're allowed to be a bit cheesy sometimes) it's probably me and my friends. We're leaving Sweden on the 7th of June so if you by chance happen to see us…Continue

*Again I wrote this on my way to Missoula this summer….. I had lots of time… this was closer to home..
The closer I’m getting to my home, the more excited I become. Even the fact that I’ve lost my favorite chap stick cant dampen my excitement, the misty rain won’t even get to me. My euphoria is too much, but to let it out could be dangerous. Ah to see real mountains again, to see clear cold, flowing water. To be with the only one who knows me truly. Maybe even to…Continue

I love reading. It's something I really enjoy doing, and the book I have to read over the summer, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini , is a really good book (Highly recommended, though mildly depressing in the best way. I have enjoyed reading the first sixteen chapters while staying at a friend's house by being a complete hermit in the evenings. Now I'm back. . .I haven't touched the book since. That's a lie, actually, the book moved from my bedside table to the edge of the bath, without…Continue

Today, I let you guys decide what I should blog about and popular opinion (meaning 2 people) chose ice cream. Well, technically, one said ice cream and the other one said popsicles. I really didn't know what to say about ice cream except that I love it and I miss eating it all the time. I love Rocky Road and I love hot fudge sundaes and I love Cherry popsicles and I love Fudgesicles not sure how to spell this lol). So what I did was look up some interesting facts about ice cream and…Continue

So here's where it starts to get a bit interesting!
Today, as it is the Summer Holidays for me, I have not a lot to do. But the two things I am going to do are rather major.
I'm currently in the process of writing a book which I've been meaning to get going with for about six months. I've only just got started, but the plot is coming together quite nicely (although slowly and awkwardly like a turtle on its back) and I'm already starting to write it out…Continue

Happy Father’s Day you dads! You rock! Especially mine and my step-dad, cause he has a blood kid now! (Kind of vampire sounding, but whatever.) Little Rhyseland, you’re in for a life-full. Hehe.
It kind of scares how much I’ve been on this highway. Same Texas Welcome Center, same rollercoaster turn things, weigh stations, creepy Eisenhower statue (that’s new, though, but creepy, yes. Er.) Well, maybe it doesn’t scare me that I’ve been on it so much, but have just noticed the…Continue

It's not very natural for me to wake up at 6:20 a.m. during summer vacation, and when that fluke happens, hopefully the reason is good. Today, the reason ended up being surprisingly serendipitous (redundancy for the win), and who would think it could be at (epic bell music)... driver's ed.
Take a few paths of country road and a stretch of highway under the baking blue sky of June, and at some point, you probably won't notice a little building on the side road more than likely…Continue

Firstly - THIS IS MY FIRST BLOG POST EVER!!!
Secondly - Summer sucks, for several reasons.
For one thing, I live 20 minutes from any of my school friends, sans one, so the boredom level increases to catastrophic rapidly and my brain tends to burst. That moment is approaching soon.
Also, it is very easy to get lazy over the summer. I get much too lazy, and I neglect practicing, which, like brain implosions, is catastrophic for the continual improvement that I…Continue

I am going to cut all of my hair off; I am going to buzz it all off in May. I have never been more excited for a hair cut and I feel like it will make me look more like a girl. I like the idea and look of androgyny, I feel it is a beautiful and subtle way of show that men and women are equal and beautiful. I will post pics as I get it cut, My best friend is getting his cut with me and we are both uber excited for the clippers! I can't get it done till May because my mom doesn't want…Continue
