Okay, I just need to take a moment to brag. It is very late and I want to show someone this before I collapse. Look at how awesome this blog looks now! http://savethelastbook.blogspot.com/
Not that any of you really saw what it looked like before. But, honestly, I'm excited. That's just gonna happen.
I have also, by the way, come to the conclusion that…Continue

I can’t even call this a review because it isn’t really. If you want to know whether or not I liked the book, I did, plain and simple. I liked it because it made me think and it made me…

My American History teacher referred to it as coming from a “mixed family”. She gushed about how cool it was. Then she laughed when I explained to her that, considering my parent’s divorce, it really wasn’t. My dad’s a republican. My mom’s a democrat. Shocking, right? People are always curious to know how this “mixed family” affected my political sensibilities. I like to…Continue

My friend and I were looking up pick up lines the other day and so of course we looked up nerdy pick up lines. And a lot of them are absolutely fantastic. BUT, we noticed a distinct lack of history pick up lines. There's some gold in there. So, here is what we came up with. Anyone want to add to it?
1. I may like the color red, but I promise if we get together I won't be Russian.
2. I'd like to free those serfs from your shirt's oppresion.
3. Hey, wanna go cause…
(I guess there are kind of spoiler alerts in this, but honestly, you canfigure out most it from the preview. You’re warned anyway.)
This might be considered controversial. I am full aware that I may end up getting flamed for this one. But I just saw Jennifer’s Body and I thought it was your great.
I know what you’re thinking. Wasn’t that movie just Megan Fox’s way of selling herself as even more of a sex pot? Isn’t it just stereotypical teenage boy paradise—hot girls…Continue

I've never been a fan of poetry. It's always driven me slightly nuts. We learn two kinds at my school.
1) Old. Very, very old. Like Percy Shelley and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. I always sort of think of this stuff as pretty just for the sake of being pretty. It's the real Romantic stuff.
2) Spoken Word. I have no idea if you have anything like this at your school, but Spoken Word is our poetry club. Only, they slam poems. Slamming is like one step below rapping. It's…Continue

The other day Spencer (my brother) asked me, "How can God be good if he causes he so much pain?". He's in a philosophy class so he's been spouting stuff like this off lately.
The first thing that I said was that God is neither good nor bad and it all depends on your perception. It was honestly just the first thing that I thought of.
Then I thought about it a bit more and my next answer actually answered the question. God causes pain because pain makes you grow. When I say…Continue

have this theory, and it’s a theory that I have shared with lots of people because I pretty much bring it up every time that I talk about the US presidential elections with anyone. So far, no one has ever disagreed with me about it. But, I live in a very partisan town, so I thought I might open this one up to the internet.…Continue

SPOLIER ALERT FOR DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 1 MOVIE
Not really that big of a spolier, but i'd hate to disapoint anyone who really desperately didn't want to know anything about the movie before they went to see it.
First of all, just to get this off my chest, I loved the movie. I've literally come out of every single one of the other movies just ranting on and on about something that they got wrong (Harry and Ginny!), or didn't include that I thought they…Continue
