Today (Sunday 20/11/11) I went to see Breaking Dawn pt. 1 and was pretty impressed. Actually, pretty is an understatement. It had a nice mix of action, romance, and just plain suspense. It does get a bit gory at the birth of Bella and Edward's baby girl, but overall it was a great movie.
I won't tell you how it ends, but the movie ends at the most annoying spot possible!! But, a must see for all twi-hards, along with anyone else who enjoys the series!!
I know I know it is a weird name but I am so getting addicted to this book!! It's about a girl named Beatrice but everyone calls her Bee. she works at the Mueseum of Natural History, with her boss Gus. One day, a new kid named Toby starts working at the mueseum. A bit of romance sprouts, but Bee is being quite stubborn and not letting much happen!
But then, someone dies (I would LOVE to say who but you should read it!!!)
And the police are everywhere, saying that he killed himself. But Bee doesnt believe that and thinks someone murdered him.
That's all I'm up to, so if you like mystery thrillers, teenage love or just a good read, I totally reccomend this!!!
At the moment I am reading 'Inkheart' by Cornelia Funke. I've only read the first few chapters and it's addictive!!
It's about a girl named Meggie, who is twelve. She lives with her Dad who she calls Mo.
She is used to them moving a lot, her Dad fixes old books which are usually long gone without repair.
One night, it's pouring rain and Meggie can't sleep. She takes a look outside and sees a man standing outside. She goes and wakes Mo, who tells her to go back to sleep saying the visitor is for him. But of course Meggie doesn't go back to sleep. I mean, which child could resist finding out who this strange character is?
It turns out his name is Dustfinger, and he seems to be a friend of Mo's from a while back. Mo takes him into a room and Meggie tries to hear what they're saying, but only catches the name 'Capricorn' and something about a book.
The next morning, her Dad wakes her up early and said they have to leave. He is already beginning to pack her suitcase.
As they are about to leave with a packed car, at the gate is Dustfinger. Apparently they were supposed to meet up, but Mo was about to dash away.
Dustfinger ends up travelling with them. Meggie demands to know where they are going, and who Capricorn is (I won't tell you, you can read the book yourself!)
They travel South to one of Meggie and Mo's many relatives. She lives in a house full of books and is quite rich. Whilst Mo fixes some of her books, both Meggie and Dustfinger snoop around a bit. It turns out, from Meggie's snooping, her relative and Mo are planning to hide the book mentioned earlier somewhere to hide it from Capricorn.
Dustfinger then tells Meggie to go in, since she is 'the face of innocence' to find out what they're doing. Meggie refuses, but Dustfinger pushes her in.
That's what I'm up to! From what I've read so far, I totally reccomend it!!!
I know in every school there is a 'popular' group. Girls who strut around, like they know it all, think all the boys like them.
They always have their hair done perfectly, have to die for figures, and seem to have confident personalities.
But, I think, under that shell, the people are insecure. They need that shell of confidence and all those other things because they are actually not confident in who they are.
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are some popular kids who are actually confident and are actually nice people, but we look at them like the rest of the popular people- bitchy, rude, snobby and 'think they are the best'
I wonder, if I had the opportunity to be popular for one day, step into their life, if it really is all glitz and glamour and boys and smiles as they portray it as?
I love this quote. Yes, yes I know Maths is a huge part of daily life and everything, and you need to learn it or you'll be a huge fail in jobs or whatever. Maths is always asking questions.
Numbers that don't make sense. How many times does this fraction go into this one? What is 9 x 10234?
I mean, what is the point? Why bother learning things like BODMAS when it has no relevance at all when you are an adult unless you become some total BODMAS expert or something? I mean, why on earth should we need to know if 8 x 3 - 12 + 234 is??
I know that the basic maths structure, like multiplication and addition are relevant, but do we really need all the fancy stuff added on if we're not going to become Maths experts when we're older??
Today my family and I traveled to a bigger town nearby (about 2 hours away) to do some shopping. Since I live in the country, I was amazed at the amount of people who were strolling around. I bought a 'Glee' karaoke game and a new shirt from 'JayJays' of a squirrel riding a bike (Lol pretty random but it's REAL cute!!!)
I also learnt something else. Today, for lunch, more people preferred 'Subway' than 'KFC'
Yesterday at school, I was playing Volleyball for P.E. One guy in my class (who will remain un-named) who is also an idiot/funny guy, who was in the position next to me, asked "What is the meaning of life?" Of course I was baffled. "Um, is that really relevant right now, in a game of Volleyball?" "Totally," he said, but I ignored that. But he wouldn't stop asking me, and I found myself without an answer. It is such a tricky question, and not many people have an answer. I'd be interested to hear your theories.
