Hehehe, I should be writing an English paper right now. We're reading The Winter of Our Discontent, by John Steinbeck. Keep in mind that I LOVE books of all genres. So people are shocked when I tell them that I just don't like John Steinbeck. It's not that he's an "old school author." I simply don't enjoy his style, or the stories he tells. The Winter of Our Discontent is impossible to make any sense of. People are having random conversations that don't make sense, and the whole plotline is SOOOO boring. I get the gist of what's happening, but it just isn't an enjoyable reading experience. Don't read it.
Just got back home from seeing a movie with one of my friends. The movie was Insidious, a horror film, of course. You may have seen the trailer on TV, but if you haven't, check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1YbOMDI59k
The first half was decent, but the second half was ridiculously absurd. The whole movie just fell apart. I was crushed. They just don't make movies like they use to. And it's not just horror films. Comedies, animated movies...they all just seem horrible nowadays. They lack heart and passion. Bleh.
In other news, Amber hugged me today. This is huge news, because she's no longer the kind of person who likes to be touched. She use to hug people all the time, but not anymore. It's been months since she last hugged me. So you can imagine my surprise when she greeted me with a hug today. I can't really describe the sheer joy that came over me when she wrapped her arms around me. I walked around school the rest of the day with a stupid grin on my face. I'm so hopeless. I know that all might not sound like a big deal, but it was huge to me.
I think I'm gonna try something new with my writing. I'm gonna keep a journal about things I see, and I'm gonna describe these things in detail, like I'm setting a scene in one of my books. For example, I'll sit on my porch tomorrow and study the sunset. I'll write down, in the most beautiful, poetic way that I can, my description of what I'm seeing. This will be good training for me, I think. It's good practice for describing scenes when I'm writing a book.
