Resolutions and Fic Pimpin' time~

Happy New Year everyone!

Ok... Yes, I need to write fics. I will. Soon. D: But I've been using a lot of my time reading fiction and practicing my instruments (senior recital this semester!) so I've been busy. Also... partying. :) I've already been trying to do right by my many resolutions for the new year. It shouldn't be too hard to keep them:

-Read 25 books in 2011
-Limit to 2 cups of coffee a day
-Drink a lot more water
-Go on more walks with my dog
-Have a lot more fun with my friends~

The first resolution I've already been working on, and I got one book in my 25 down! And I have many other books to read, but I'll do a report on the first one, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare in the next post. Anyways, I want to be more productive and healthy in 2011, and this is a good start.

Also! It's pimp time! I haven't recced a fanfic as of yet, but I felt like I really need to do this one. The other day I read Arithmancy by naturegirlrocks from the hp_mhealthfest last year and I was completely touched by it. I didn't cry (thank god) but several times I wanted to. Draco, who's life in Sixth year is rapidly spinning out of his control, finds order in carefully determining the value of his food. Harry is unknowingly very concerned for Draco as he's been watching him all year, and my favorite moment was when Harry gives Draco a backhanded compliment of how thin he is and Draco secretly being very happy by this.

It's a wonderful alternate for Half-Blood Prince and I really enjoyed reading it. Go read it now. :)

Will be back with a fic, I swear!

H/D Stocking Stuffers~

Hey! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas~ I have some Christmas themed stories to put up in a few days (when we're allowed to) that I made for hd_seasons. In the meantime, here's my stocking! Please read, the people who gave me presents knew exactly what I'd like! :)





In all, my Christmas wasn't that big, but it was cozy. My sister got me three Sing-a-ma-jigs (yes, I'm really three years old at heart), a couple notebooks, and a book, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I didn't think I'd like this book, since the summary says that the main character, Tessa Grey, falls in love with two beautiful boys, Will and James... who will she choose?

That sounds familiar. But I swear, this isn't anything like Twilight, which I am greatly relieved for. For one thing, Tessa knows she's not pretty and is perfectly fine with it. The majority of the characters I've met so far (75 pages in out of about 450) all have some sort of flaw that Tessa observes rather bluntly and honestly, which again is somewhat refreshing. And there is ACTION and PLOT right from the get-go! I really do recommend it, and again I'm only 75 pages in!

Can I count this as a book for my goal of 25 for next year?

Deathly Hallows Premier Carpet/Music

Hey guys!

I'm not dead, I swear it, and I will write something hopefully of the yummy vampire quality this weekend, we shall see. In any case, as we know, Deathly Hallows Part 1 premiered yesterday in London and I didn't get to watch the live-feed sadly, but it didn't matter since all I wanted to see was how everyone was dressed up. Dan, Tom, and Rupert all, of course, looked soooo dapper and sexy, it made me happy. B)

Normally I think that Emma looks the most beautiful but... I don't know, that hair is not doing it for me. I guess she's trying to look more grown up but her hair/make up ends up making her look so old! :( I go to Providence, Rhode Island for school just about everyday, yet I've never seen Emma (I'm one of the few, I'm told...) and I fear that if I ever do, the only thing I'd be able to say is, "...Please grow your hair out again!" @_@

And I didn't like her dress either, because I will never understand outfits that are designed to see a person's underthings. *sighs* I did think the picture of her and Jo standing next to one another was adorable though.

Photobucket

Anyone else think they might've coordinated their outfits? :P

In other news, I'm looking for a couple pieces to play for my SENIOR CLARINET RECITAL next semester! I know some of you have musical capabilities or have also gone on to school for music, so if you have any ideas for programs please tell me, it'd be greatly appreciated. Nothing by Carl Maria von Weber, though- I hate him with a firey eternal passion. :|

And does anyone have some vintage-dress patterns or know where I can get some?

Last thing- according to Wii fit I'm a normal weight now! Suh-weet!
...which I am a bitch for. I can never seem to balance out real life and personal time, in which in my personal time I'd write, be merry, relax and generally do the things I WANT to do.

Not that I don't want to do real life. See, real life is school and work and music. I like that music thing a lot. But I will confess, sometimes I feel like I put way too much time and effort into something that won't really give me anything in return. I suppose this is the definition of a musician (you don't do it for the money, you do it for the love of the act!) but it's so exhausting.

All I want to do is sit and WRITE SOMETHING. And I will! I promise! Just... after my Baroque paper is due or something...

Bored!

Hey guys! Do not worry (although I don't know if you were) I didn't stop writing. I'm waiting for my next ficcy to get beta'd. In the meantime! I'm bored.

Band Camp is over!

Back everyone!

I learned a lot from my experiences at band camp, despite being a counselor and not a camper. Very quickly, here is a list:

1. Bring a toaster and coffee machine next year to band camp- apparently I didn't learn that the coffee tastes like shit the last time.
2. The more food you can take from home the better.
3. I will always be the only person who will volunteer to play three different instruments in a condensed amount of time like this.
4. I should invest in an Eb clarinet.

The rest of this is much too long to not put behind a cut, so I will do that! Thank you if you read~

That one time, at band camp...Collapse )

I will be doing some writing soon, but not today most likely- much too tired! Today will be for napping and practicing. :)

Busy! Workation!

Hey everyone! I won't be around for a little bit- I have to go to band camp this week! It's going to be so much fun, I'm extremely excited about it. I won't be posting any stories, but I will be checking messages so expect that~ After next week is my 21st birthday (on the 26th!) so I plan on writing a story for mine, Harry's and Draco's birthdays. And another Vampire Boyfriend story. :)

If anyone has any requests or prompts, please let me know! I'll shower you with gifts when I get back! ;D
