Books, Writings, Happenings, etc...

What am I doing with my life? I'm making (and saving) memories. I do that everyday.

 ~Listening to the Cinderella soundtrack and being able to name every scene that goes to each song.
*listens to the music* Oh yes, this is when her mother dies. Such a sad scene. I always loved her mother. Never cared too much for Ella's father, actually. He's awfully ridiculous to marry someone so heartless and self-centered like Tremaine. What? He wants another chance at happiness? With HER? What's the matter with that guy, anyways? *scoff*

~Wishing it was Spring. *sigh* And I know everyone is wishing that just as much as me. But still, I can't help looking forward to it. After all, seeing the little sprouts of green around the yard after a long, grey winter has GOT to be one of the best feelings in the world.
Wouldn't you agree?
Moving on.

~This video:


Gets me every time.

~Finally getting up the nerve to start my latest reading project: The Circle Series, by Ted Dekker, which I got for Christmas.
It's actually four books in one, but the whole series together is HUGE. I can't even hold the thing to read it, I have to set it on a table or my bed because this thing is bigger than Bleak House and it's bigger than my Study Bible, which are the two biggest books I own.

Aaaaaand here's a pin I created from one of the quotes! Hopefully the forest picture is ok to use. : / But hey, if you've seen one forest picture, you've seen 'em all, right?

So, I just finished the first book in the series, "Black", and I'm on to the second book. I don't usually read thriller/suspenseful novels, but this one is actually really good. A little weird, a little scary, but quite interesting, yes.
And while I'm still on the subject of books... wait, aren't I always on the subject of books? o_o

~Getting especially excited/passionate about writing my story after taking a long break (and it's been going pretty good so far).
Hey, I'd love to share an occasional scene with you all. But first, I would have to share the basic context of The Hidden Queen. Writing all that would take a post all for itself, but here's just a small smidgen of context for you:

The Hero: Lillian, the Queen.
The Plot: Lillian's brother, the King, is captured, so she feels obligated to find and rescue him because it was her fault that he was captured.
So, she obtains the help of a former kingdom spy, and together with his team, they set out to find the lost King.

 I'm really excited about this story, as I'm sure you can understand if you're a writer. The work is going slowly, but I think it will make a great story when it's all finished.

 ~Working on my list of 100 memory verses. I sense that God has been telling me to store more of his Word in my heart lately, so right now I'm just focusing on a simple goal: 100 verses. I'm combining a few verses of my own with a list I found online. It's going pretty well so far. I forgot how easy/fun it was to memorize. Here's my most recent verse:
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.

Hooray for me.

~Watching BBCs North & South once again. Seriously, I love this series. Watching it for the third time, I realized that it is very similar to both Jane Eyre and Bleak House. So if you like either of those two, you'll probably like North & South. I sure do. :)

I mean look. The guy has a top hat. How can it be a bad series?
 And I can't WAIT to read the book (which I'm going to get with some of my Amazon money from Christmas. Yay.)! Which brings me to my last point in this post (wait, does this post even have a point? *shrugs*):

I'm going to buy one more book with my leftover book money from my birthday and Christmas. But I'm not sure what book to get. Do you have any suggestions? If so, do tell! The comments are open!

That is all, friends. :) Goodbye for now! I shall speak to you again, perhaps, when Spring is finally upon us. Or maybe sooner. 


  1. Just don't choke on it....actually, that is a choking hazard, so-
    XD Gotta love Studio C. Even if that one isn't quite my favorite.
    Oh, SPRIIIIING. I can't wait. Those few days of sunshine and warmth a week ago just whetted our seasonal appetites, now I want it even more.
    The Hidden Queen! I CANNOT WAIT TO READ IT. You're right, it's going to be uh-mazing. :)
    Cinderelly, Cinderelly...who doesn't love Cinderelly? :)
    LIKEWISE with N&S! :D I can't wait to watch it again!
    I need to go do some school, so FAREWELL.
    I promise I'll email you soon. :)
    -You Know Who
    P.S. Do you have Rilla of Ingleside yet??? Cause that's a pretty good book...

  2. Diana:
    That was one of the first Studio C episodes I ever saw... and it was hilarious. :) I just had to share it. So, which one IS your favorite?
    I love Cinderelly!
    Ok. Go do your school. And I don't have Rilla of Ingleside yet, but it's on my list. :)

  3. Teddy's Story Joint, of course! :D
    READ IT SOOOON. If you didn't DIS-like libraries, you could have read it already. *superior face*
