Juniors and Books

I feel so out of touch with you all! Last time I was on here was what... two weeks ago? Gosh, time flies when you're having fun, right? I wish that was the case.

The truth is that I've been under a lot of stress lately. I need to start thinking about scheduling for my junior year of high school, the year that means the most when it comes to college and future occupations. I just have so many choices to make, and they all involve taking a look at things I'm good and no-so-good at. And I'm NONE too good at that.

On a bit of a brighter note for ya, I have another book recommendation! It's called "The Gathering Storm" by Robin Bridges. And though I haven't personally read the book, I've read a few of her other works and I really like her!

And I hope you do, too!

I have a question for you all! And this question may involve your brain to be put to work, so be prepared.

What does the word 'obsolete' mean to you? I was watching the Twilight Zone Marathon (are you surprised?) and "the obsolete man" came on. The main story line? Men were killed off because they either weren't good enough, they made some horrible mistake, and were deemed "obsolete." Based on what you did, you could choose your death.

I don't know about you guys, but this is exactly where this darned world is headed.

Sorry. That was my depressing post for the week. Tomorrow I promise I'll have something happy up. Like a book review.

Or something.

Tumbling, Tumbles, and Tumblr


So, in passing through another phase of my life, I gave up on blogging for a while and got a tumblr!


Pretty, ain't it? LolJK, you don't need to lie to yourself- I know it needs work. I just need to put forth that effort. Which is highly humorous to me.

And that's kind of all I have to say for right now, other than that I REALLY like tumbling. A lot. Go check it out!

Conscious Decisions and Disney Movies

Hey there!

So I think that I've come to a conscious decision today that I want to turn this into a book blog! I got the idea from "Another Book Blog" -go look it up! I only have a few issues with this:

  • The title of my blog isn't really book related... could that be a problem? I could change it... but I don't want people to be confused.
And, well... that's really my only problem! For the few of you reading this right now, post some comments as to how (or if) I should go about doing this!

In other news, I'm on Christmas break! It's that wonderful feeling where you can read your heart out, eat your heart out, and not worry about the consequences of the laziness. Why? Because for the first time in a long time, my honors schedule hasn't given me homework over break! I'm going shopping tomorrow, only to come home and mess around with my harmonica and trudge through my bookshelf. Wednesday, I'm helping my church make banana bread for the needy people around my community. Thursday and Friday, I'm having a few people over for various reasons (mostly to catch up on classic Disney movies. Yes, this is what my friends and I do in our free time.) 

And then there's New Years! I'm not quite sure what I'm doing for it yet, though I've been invited to a friend's house to celebrate. The only problem with that is that my mother wants me to host it at my house. I'm so confused- with so many options to take!

Secondhand Serenade always makes me feel better.

Until next time,
Alex Tee!

Christmas and Other Assorted News

Hello to all and Merry Christmas Eve!

Oh what a wonderful time of year this is! Family, friends, snow (actually, there's no snow where I live...), good food, and of course the presents! But is that really all we can say about Christmas? Of course not! We have the story of Jesus Christ! But I'm not going to tell you it on here... I have a dare for you! Pick up the nearest Bible, and flip to the New Testament. There you will find all you will need to know about Christmas and who it's actually about! Tell me in the comments below what you find! (All 74 of you regular viewers...)

In other news, I went to a party last night! (Just in case you cared or anything..) This was the first party in a while that actually had guys there; three to be exact. One was already taken, one was supposedly gay, so that left me the option to flirt with only one of them. And flirt I did.

But after the first hour or so, I came to the realization that he was DEFINATELY flirting back. Now the only problem was that his ex was also at that party. I really don't like starting drama, so I backed off. I think he noticed and also came to that realization, for he also backed off.

Hmm. Guys.

Sphinx's Queen

Hello again!

I haven't been on here in a while... I guess that the initial excitement of blogging wears off after the first week or so. But I'm back, and with some very exciting news!

I have viewers in Russia now!

But that's not my most exciting news...

I recently read a book called "Sphinx's Queen" by Esther M. Friesner. What a name, right? Well it's an awesome book, and the most awesome thing is that you really don't need to read them in order! Sure, it will help, but I didn't even know that there were books before this, yet I was still able to follow along easily!

And, the best part is... *drumroll* I got it for free! How, you ask? This site, right here: www.randombuzzers.com.

I got it as part of this program called "Ambuzzadors." I won't tell you any more, because I want you guys to see it for yourself!

Things I Hate

I didn't make a post yesterday, so I guess I'll be taking Saturdays off? Awesome, haha. Anyways, I thought that every Sunday would be a "collaboration" post, where I make a list of things I learned the past week. This week? I found that I hate A LOT of things.

  • 1. People who don't know how to close the door. If the door is closed when you walk in, that's probably a good indicator that it should be closed when you leave. Or is that just too much work for you?
  • 2. Buying the wrong shade of make-up. Awesome! I got new make-up! *puts on* Crap... I look like a ghost.
  • 3. Embarrassing myself in public. *falls down stairs*
  • 4. Overplayed music. There's a certain magic to hearing a really pretty song for the first time. That magic tends to be lost after the hundredth time.
  • 5. Change. If you have a Facebook, you know what I'm talking about. If not, I'm jealous of your soul.
  • 6. Liars. I admit, it's so easy to lie sometimes. But after you tell me that your dad was once the president, you were diagnosed with this really rare cancer but still lived, that your mom works for Britney Spears, and that your uncle built the ships for Pirates of the Carribean, THAT'S when I stop trusting you. And yes, I've heard ALL of those before. And from the same person.
  • 7. Pathological liars. Even worse than regular liars.
  • 8. Annoying commercials and TV shows. See, the whole point of television is to entertain your viewers- not make them want to rip their eardrums out. For instance, little kid shows. They won't teach you ANYTHING, and they will NOT remember it for the rest of their lives. I do admit that I like some Disney shows, but most of them are annoying. Very annoying.
