Currently, I'm at my parents for Christmas break. And it's rather nice. I have various friends to visit while I'm here. [Strangely, I do have non-internet friends.] But I also have things to get straightened out for spring semester, so not everything's fun and games, folks.
Today I'm linking up with Lauren @ Always Me for Music Monday. I recently discovered the Divergent movie score. I didn't really like the movie much? I mean, it wasn't awful. . . My loyalties lie with the book, okay? The score though is fantastic! Why didn't I listen to it sooner?
A collection of posts
The fabulous Cait @ Paper Fury tells us about Australian bloggers and their habits. She also has a tutorial for origami stars! Lots of pictures [my kind of tutorial]. And I actually made one! Yes, one star
and some mangled pentagons.
The Penslayer as usual is very helpful in offering this Simple Guide to Being Impossibly Awesome. Oh, and this other post about characters and prayer.
If you're into grammar, better yet, if you're not into grammar here's some grammar videos about various rules and breaking them. I love this guy and his articles. He's hilarious and against-the-grain.
This one by Nadine is about believing. I love how she chose a word to explore for the year instead of making a new years resolution.
I love, love Liz's @ Out of Coffee, Out of Mind post about a typical day during NaNoWriMo. If you only click on one link, make it this one. She also gives some awesome writing advice.
Of course, I'm going to hand you another down by the willows post. How could I not?
And this book review by Emily @ Ink, Inc.? I really want to read The Secret History by Donna Tartt, guys.
[This is my new fav pin. If I randomly start giggling, it's probably because I'm thinking of this.]
Here's a thing I made from a series of photos for a bookstagram challenge. The prompt was candy canes and books, but I needed only one photo. So I thought I'd do something with the rest of the photos.
So recently, my brother wanted me to watch this movie called Prestige with him, and I loved it more than I thought I would. It's about magicians and REVENGE. [Don't look at me like. Revenge is a good theme.] Great stuff that. And now I kinda want to write a story about a magician.
And I recently saw the new Pete's Dragon which is so adorable! Just go watch it.
Oh, and I've been drawing lately. You know, because I took a drawing class this semester. I should've taken more photos of my portfolio for you, but I didn't think about it.
These shoes are from my sketchbook, but I drew a larger version for finals.
Sorry this one's so hard to see. I drew the kid with balloons after I finished finals. And I had more fun with it because I wasn't doing it for a grade. [Our professor was kinda harsh. . .]
So what have you been up to lately? Anything new with you? What have you been reading? Are you enjoying Christmas?
