School D:

First of all, I'll just say I failed NaNo again. I've come to the conclusion that I only do well in NaNo when I have school, dance, and rehearsals, because I work well under pressure I think. Haha.

School starts next Tuesday for me. I am dreading it, I don't know why it can't just start later. The elementary and middle schools don't start until the next week! Sigh...curse them. (:

I saw Sea of Monsters last night! It was actually a really good movie, much to my surprise. It didn't follow the book exactly, instead it took the parts and switched them around and stuff and well it didn't turn out too badly. I liked it, I might even watch it again, *gasp*

I also went to Hot Topic recently and got two City of Bones t-shirts. I'll post them up at the end of the post. And yesterday I also painted my own. I'll post that too. I might as well put up the Star Trek one I did earlier this summer. i forgot if I put a picture up or not.

I also dip dyed my hair red but that really isn't very important and I don't know why I'm mentioning it, but oh well. (:

I read The Da Vinci Code which is a really good book! To anyone who hasn't read it, I really recommend that you do. I haven't read Dan Brown's other books yet, but I am planning to do that. I also watched the movie, which was almost as good as the book. Obviously not better, but really really good.

Did I mention I watched A Beautiful Mind recently too? It is loosely based off a true story of John Nash, a mathematician, and trust me, the movie is much much more interesting than it sounds. It was really good I even started obsessing over it if that is possible. I love the soundtrack, it is really pretty. This school year I am going to attempt to listen to it while doing math homework and see if it helps. (;

There is a character in A Beautiful Mind, played by Paul Bettany, who I somehow find really cool all of a sudden. He was also in Da Vinci Code, and I'll admit he was just awesome as Silas in that. My favorite character by far. He is also the voice of Jarvis in the Iron Man movies. He has an awesome voice.

Two more weeks until City of Bones comes out! Have you seen the clips? If you haven't I recommend you going to TMI Source because they have everything. Including, Clary's Theme, the first track of the score that they have released! It is really good. Really, really good.

Anyway, I have decided that I am going to write more because when I used to write a lot which was in seventh and eighth grade, my writing was much better than it is now. I was just rereading what I wrote for Celadon, and comparing it to what I have written recently, and to say the least, I was surprised. So I will write more, and post it on here, and I expect real critique and ways to improve other than the normal "Oh that was cool!" Because I really need some help here.

Your painted shirts are so good! :)

Just curious, have you read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green?

How is school? I'm starting tomorrow... The five minute clip of City of Bones is really good, except I can't figure out who the people that attacked Jocelyn are (they didn't seem like Forsaken) so that's sort of bothering me, haha.

The Sea of Monsters movie was a lot better than the Lightning Thief...

I'm bad at critiquing writing, so I don't know if I could help you... And your writing is really good anyway.
