it's up!

go here. feel free to follow and leave a comment or two.

and now i bid thee farewell for the last time.




You may have noticed that all my photos are gone from this blog. It's because Google is lame and connects all Blogger photos to Google+, so when I deleted all my photos from my G+ page, they kind of... well, disappeared from the blog. I'm obviously not going to put them back, who has time for that?! Instead, I'm going to do something that I've been thinking about for a while: delete this blog.

Scared you, didn't I?
I'm going to delete this blog, and make a new one. Definitely more photography-oriented. You could say "inspirational", but never in my life have I been inspirational so it won't be that. I need YOU to help me come up with a title, though! Leave suggestions in the comments.

jusqu'à la prochaine fois,


That thing called Ender's Game

the enemy's gate is down.

Ender's Game is honestly the best book you will ever read in the history of science-fiction.

Okay, I'll admit I read it because I knew that Asa Butterfield would be in the movie, and I was like, "I'll read this so that I can watch the movie that has Asa Butterfield's beautiful face in it and actually understand what's going on." Don't give me that "wow, what a pathetic loser", because you know you've done it too. coughhungergamescough. I've always been a reader, but I've never advanced into "adult fiction", if you will, or books with a reading level above age 12. My brother recommended this book to me right after we watched Hugo when it came out. By the way, cutest movie ever. I could watch it a billion times. Plus Asa Butterfield's in it so it's even more amazing. Moving on.... So, he recommended this to me, and I was all excited because it's ASA BUTTERFIELD GUYS! WHO DOESN'T LOVE HIM?! Yeah anyway.
This book was very hard to get into. I had to reread maybe 1/4 of the book so that I could understand what was going on. But oh my, it was so worth it. I won't get into details because it would take a while, and I haven't read it in a while (two years, haha), but you can find a summary here. Basically I'm just here to throw the book in your face and tell you that the movie's going to be amazing and book-accurate (says Asa Butterfield, who actually denied any romantic relationship between Ender and Petra because they don't have one in the book--they're 6 and 8 years old in the book, for goodness' sake!). Lo and behold, the cast:

Ender Wiggin.

Sooo... this is basically a post that is shoving Ender's Game in your face. Just wait, you'll fangirl too after you've read it....

I have a book review of 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher that I may or may not post... it was written for school so it doesn't have everything I would have liked to put in it and it has all that formal language and junk. Gross. Anyhoo, toodles for now; I'll be on Blogger occasionally... not as often as I used to be, though.

much love,

P.S. Just noticed this as I was writing this post... are you seeing all these weird images instead of my header, buttons, etc. on my blog?! I think it must be because I deleted all the photos from my Google + page... that's stupid and dumb. Hopefully everything will be fixed soon. Thanks for your patience!
