*insert funny title here*

Hey guys!
I know. It's been FOREVER.

So, what's new with me?



Just as bad as it sounds. I started about a week and a half ago, and I'm already getting 4 hours of homework for one day! :o

But you guys don't care about that, do ya? You just want to know what weirdness I've done recently.

Well....I saw the One Direction movie.

Twice. *hides*

I WAS FORCED. I saw it once with my friend at midnight (well, actually, at 7 o clock, because the midnight showing was full.) and then I saw it with a whole group of friends the next week. And, tomorrow, they're going again, because there's an entire TWENTY MINUTES of extra footage. Whoop-e-dee-doo. Not me. I've got homework. -_- And I have to have it all done by Saturday, because....

I'm going to go see Tim Hawkins on Saturday! :D I'm pumped! :D I've enjoyed watching his videos and such for years. Him and Bob Smiley (who actually goes to a church that a bunch of my friends go to) are some of my favorite comedians.

I really can't think of much to talk about (it's been a pretty uneventful week) so I figured I'd do one of those currently things. :)


To just random stuff on Pandora. Thank goodness they FINALLY took away that stupid 40 hour listening limit that I used up in 5 days, because I think I've been listening for about 50 hours just this week! I've also been loving this remix by Capital Kings ever since a fellow message board user posted it. Omygosh. It's amazing. Listen if you're my friends who like electronicky, dubstep, all that stuff. Also, this. I'm not usually a fan of a ton of trance drops, but this song by Matthew Parker (one of the best dubstep artists EVER. ) is too good. I also decided to relisten to Paramore's newest album, and LOVE this song. It's got one of those upbeat tunes that you can't listen to without at least nodding your head.

I also finally decided to listen to Album 57. For some reason, I really haven't listened to ANY episodes. I'm slightly disappointed in myself. But from what I hear (which is everything they released on the radio, with the exception of Your Servant is Listening) it's pretty good. I really enjoyed More Than a Feeling, but I didn't really think No Chemistry Whatsoever was that great. But I'll save all that for my AIO blog that I seriously need to update.

AND. (this listening part will never end.) Welcome to Nightvale.


I'm obsessed.

In case you don't know what Nightvale is, I call it a contridiction. So, what it is, is it's a news report for a fictional town called Nightvale, where very, VERY strange things happen. However, those strange things happen to be quite funny. Why do I call it a contridiction? Well, all it is is a person with a mild, even, calm voice reading a piece of paper about the news. Sounds boring, I know. But it's kind of weird, because this calm, mediocre voice is reading about the most extraordinary things. For example. The first lines of the first episode.

Welcome to Nightvale.  The city council would like to announce the opening of a new dog park. They would also like to remind everyone that dogs are not allowed in the dog park. People are not allowed in the dog park. You may see hooded figures in the dog park. Do not approach them. Do not approach the dog park. Try not to look at the dog park, and especially do not look for any period of time at the hooded figures. The dog park will not harm you.

Yep. Trust me, that's one of the more normal things that has been said. I've really, really enjoyed the first 10 episodes. Definitely worth listening to. However, after about episode 14, it's started to kind of go downhill for me. Mostly because it implies that the man who's reading the news, Cecil, has a crush on Carlos. Yep, a guy. :/ I mean, please, just let me listen to wacky news reports without bringing all that in. Other than that, from what I have listened to, which is episodes 1-16, the podcast is clean. It's #1 on iTunes at the moment, so you should go check it out!

Doctor Who. @_@ Omygosh. You guys. I'm addicted. If I wasn't banned from TV, I would be watching it all. day. My friend introduced it to me the same night we first say the 1D movie, and it totally made up for it! I'm currently almost done with the first season. It's amazing. I am officially a Whovian. Watch out.

The Fall of Five, the 4th book in the I Am Number Four series, came out on the 29th. 

I waited all night for it to be delivered to my kindle (I pre-ordered it), fell asleep at about 3:30 AM, woke up at 10, read it by noon, then promptly threw my kindle across the room, cursing those terrible writers for killing off my favorite character and for ending in a cliffhanger and destroying every hope I have because last book one of the Garde brought back the dead somehow and I thought they could do that with my favorite character but NONONO YOU JUST HAD TO LEAVE HIS BODY BEHIND AND RUIN EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!

Okay. Rant over. Don't read the book. I legitimately cried. Why, you stupid, stupid, writers. 

Left-over birthday cake. My youngest brother turned 9 on Saturday! :D 

DOING (er, supposed to be doing)
Government homework, which I'm actually thoroughly enjoying. All my other classes? Oh, heck no. 

All right, I think that's enough.I have to go to bed anyway. =P  I won't take as long to post next time, promise!
Hopefully you enjoyed my weirdness. Hasta la Vista! (Wait, I'm taking Latin, not spanish.)
