Okay, so I have majorly mixed feelings for Twilight. In movie form I don't like any of the main characters except for Taylor Lautner. I can't stop thinking of him as Sharkboy. Robert Pattinson's attitude I liked better as Cedric. He went from being so open to very emo. Kristen Stewart just bothers me for some reason. Don't know why.
Now onto the book. I can't read it. Every time I try I see it and think 'This sounds like a fanfic.' Vampires are not sparkly like diamonds. I love the idea of vampires and have for years. I can watch Queen of the Damned and other things like that over and over again. There has never been a vampire that sparkles like diamonds. I can just picture the Cullens getting exposed if the rain just suddenly stops and the sun comes out if they are out in public. Alice can't see every tiny sun ray that might hit them. Pick one or the other. Either they can be daywalkers or they can only come out at night. They can't be sparkly. I also don't really like Stephanie Meyer's writing style.
However the thing about Twilight is that I adore the characters and their back stories. Rosalie, Emmett (I want to give him a hug), Jasper, Alice, Carlisle, Esme and all. I think that is why there is so much Twilight mania. That everyone can't get the characters out of their head. Also, they want to find an Edward for themselves. (Don't get that fully so if someone wants to comment and explain it to me I could write a response. I get the appeal of the bad boy as I read Edward is being compared to in an article, but I don't think that Edward counts as a bad boy. He just makes me think EMO!!!)
This is a very bad week for me. I won a goldfish last week (25th) at school carnival. I was so happy. I was hoping I could keep Grapefruit alive and I was so happy to finally have something living in my dorm room besides my plant. Grapefruit lived on my desk which is always right next to my bed so I can use my computer while lying down instead of on one of the uncomfortable dorm chairs. I always talked to Grapefruit saying things like I'm going to class now. I named him/her Grapefruit because I was thinking of how I had named my computer Apple (its a PC). I got fish food, a air pump, air stone, and tubing. I even got a PetSmart savings card(one of the key chain things) because I was imagining coming back for more fish supplies for Grapefruit. I was trying so hard to keep Grapefruit alive in its bowl.
I've been researching all this week how to take care of Grapefruit and was going to order an aquarium as soon as I could get money for it. Grapefruit died tonight and I can't stop crying now, even though I have a paper to finish writing that's due tomorrow morning and I have to take a shower and do a lot of other things. Grapefruit died of bad water. I had seen the water getting bad and was about to change it. I got a bunch of water ready and was letting it cool down and somewhere in that period of time is when Grapefruit died. Right now I wish I could just sleep. Really short on money this week and I'm so worried I'm going to have to leave the school with the best friends I've ever had. I really wish I could go home and pet my cat Cassandra. I was so happy earlier today. I was singing along to the songs from the new episode of Glee. Now all I know is that I can't spend any money this weekend, my fish died, and I have so much work to do this weekend. I don't know what I'm going to do. I had even envisioned bringing Grapefruit home for Christmas and finding some way to bring him/her home for Thanksgiving if I'm going home which would have meant four hours on a bus.
So to top my week tomorrow starts all hell. Yesterday I went out with some friends, and today was a hard test and the MJ memorial. I cried so hard when I saw Paris getting up there although my tears had started at Stevie Wonder. She was so brave.
My two days of hell will begin tomorrow. Around 8PM I am leaving for NYC with a group of friends to see the HP premiere!!! We're taking a late train down and then "camping out" at the theater. While my opinions of Harry Potter went way down after the fifth book, I can't miss the opportunity to try to see the stars. I would be so happy if somehow they managed to sign the HP and the HBP book that I got when I went to the midnight release for it. Better yet would be if Jason Isaacs or Alan Rickman were there. The one thing I'm really worried is how I will last with probably little sleep and little food.
Afterwords, I'm not fully clear on what will be happening, but I get back home around 1AM get a few hours of sleep and then head back to the city to meet up with one of my suite-mates aka one of my best friends from college. We will then spend the day in NYC and it will be another late night.
The King of Pop and Charlie's Angel are dead. Seems like so many things are happening this week.
My sister is graduating hs tomorrow. Feels like yesterday when I was doing it. I was in my summer statistics class and we were going on break when I heard about MJ. One of my classmate's sisters texted him to tell him the news and then on break I called my sister who is a Perez fan and she confirmed it. This day feels so surreal. Huge lightening storm after class with even a little hail and I went to see Transformers finally. My mom was too sick on Tuesday to drive me to it (I have to renew my permit again. I've been living in Philly not at home so no time for learning to drive. Too much drama at home.). I did love it, but when is Steve Jablonsky going to release the soundtrack for it that is not that stupid cd containing all the songs that weren't in the movie. I loved Optimus except for his speeches. Arcee's form was not great. I would have preffered her as one robot. Where was Barricade? Also, what happened to the tiny little smart mouthed decepticon and the other autobots/decepticons that had been there for so long in olden forms. Where was the focus on the Autobots like Ratchet and Ironhide?
People really piss me off sometimes. I recently joined a vegan community to get ideas about ways to make my diet more vegan instead of vegetarian. However the people there were really negative about vegetarians, so I had to leave the negativity. If the world was perfect I would be a vegan, however at this current time it is not feasible for me. I can barely eat my regular vegetarian diet at the moment. I am currently living on campus where I have a kitchen after two years of dorm living. When I was living in the dorms it was incredibly hard for me to get good nutrition even with a vegetarian diet. A lot of the things they were serving i didn't like. For the last few weeks of the spring semester I was eating mostly milkshakes, pizza, and quesadillas during the weekday. The dining hall that I was able to get to most often had nothing I wanted to eat most of the time. Now that I'm living on campus during the summer it's hard for me to get groceries because I don't have a car or a bicycle (although the bicycle is coming in the mail because it's a folding one). I'm stretching out my groceries until the bike is here, but there are a bunch of things I can't make because I don't have the ingredients for them. It would be a thousand times harder for me to get groceries if I was vegan and in this situation at the moment. Also, there is the fact that there are a bunch of vegan ingredients that I can't eat. My favorite kind of sushi is just rice with carrot and cucumber because I don't like seaweed. The vegan staple of soymilk is also something I don't like to drink. I would like to try almond milk and rice milk but they are also hard to get and I'm not sure about almond milk since I don't like things with almonds in them in large quantities.
I am so tired of not being able to have a social life or a good night's sleep. I've spent basically every night for the past three weeks besides Thanksgiving break in the sewing lab and I'm still not done. I love my garment structures class but it is so hard along with my design and fashion figure drawing classes and the other little classes that are taking up my time. At least it's almost time for break. Also, I got a lot of work done today with my bodice and toddler dress. I'll post pictures once they are all done.
Oh BTW. Christmas Card Post!
If you want one, post your address and I'll get one out to you. Comments are screened
Very simply, it was my favorite of the HP movies. I adored it. Not enough Snape, Malfoys, or Tonks, missed my favorite scene from the book and rushed through a lot of parts, but it was truly fantastic. Went to the midnight showing and now I'm exhausted.
For Pirates 3, I went to the 8PM showing, but it felt the same.
It's been two exhausting days. Yesterday, went to see Transformers. That was one of the best action packed movies I've seen all summer. It was so sad at parts. Since the movie I keep thinking that every car I see is going to transform into a Transformer. Shia LeBouf has really grown since Even Stevens and Holes.
