I don't know about you, but I am OBSESSED with Twilight. I remember when I first read the series I would constantly think about Edward and wish he was real. Hahaha. But I still love Jacob too, he's still cool! Both Edward and Jacob are people I wish were real.. :/ But in terms of the movie, I say Taylor Lautner is hot and Robert Pattinson looks really sloppy off the screen. Haha I hope no one kills me since I said that!

But it's so hard cause I only have acrylic paint when the original was made of oil paints! GRR! I would buy some, but then I've never used them before so it'd be ugly anyway if I had them.. But darn it's uber hard to use acrylics for this piece! Why do acrylics have to dry so fast T__T I could add water but then it makes it thinner too so blah. It's so incredibly hard to blend... how frustrating! So my piece looks like crap right now. Ugh oh well. Whatever I've spent too much time on it to plan a different piece to work on.

Not to mention that today has been such a fun day. Carmen, Ann, Priscilla and I went to go visit Mr. Weaver after school after buying fries and it was really fun! Haha he's such a fun teacher. And then Priscilla's house was really fun too, we ate noodles and went to walmart and lots of other things! Yaaaaaay today has been such a great day, dare I say.... almost perfect?! Almost. But now I'm exhausted, so time to catch some zzzzzzzzzzzz's.

Anyways, I finished reading The Truth About Forever a few days ago, but never got around to actually making a review of it cause I've been "busy" (ahem, laziness).
So The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen is a GREAT book, in my opinion. It starts with Jason, Macy's boyfriend, leaving for Brain Camp. As Macy leads a dull life during this summer, she studies for the SAT's, works at the library in place of Jason, and follows all of her mother's orders. But one day, in an email to Jason, she simply says "I love you." This makes Jason want a "break" in their relationship until he comes back. However, she later starts to work at Wish Catering, a chaotic food service full of surprises. There she meets people who will change her life, including a boy named Wes. But who would have thought that changing would be so hard, even when it makes you happy? Macy has to learn that sometimes it isn't always best to be safe than sorry.
I really enjoyed this book, most likely because it can be so realistic. Macy has to deal with her father dying, while under the strict control of her overprotective mother. Personally, I know what it's like when parents don't bother listening to your side of the story, and they punish/lecture based on mere assupmptions. I think this book helps you realize that sometimes change is good, and that all it takes sometimes is someone to give you a little push in the right direction. Also, no matter how intelligent, beautiful, etc. you are, if you aren't happy it isn't worth it. Macy had to learn the hard way that risks are better than being on the safe side all the time, which I think can relate to a lot of readers of the book. Plus, it's really important to show your emotions, because then those around you will never know how you really feel, like how Macy's mother never noticed that Macy was really miserable with her father dying. I also really liked it because it's such a sweet story, and who doesn't like a meaningful romance novel?

ANYWAYS, back to the topic of a perfect day, I guess my first kind of perfect day would be just spending a whole day to myself, no boundaries or limitations to stop me from going anywhere. With some music in my ears, I would just stroll around on the beach or just lay down to relax. And I would have a book in hand, with a bag of a few more books for when I finish the one I'm reading. It would be sunny and warm, so I could just lay down and read to my heart's content. I'd also have a nice camera with me so I could capture all the simple things that surround me, and there would also be a little ice cream store so I can eat ice cream all day. To sum it up, it'd just be a nice, relaxing day all to myself.
A second perfect kind of day would be those vigorous, non-stop action kind of days with a couple of close friends. We would lots of money to NOT buy clothes and jewelry, but instead just PIG OUT! There'd be all kinds of food--chocolate, ice cream, pasta, sushi, dim sum, cream puffs, crepes, pizzas, noodles... EVERYTHING. Who cares how many calories we consume, it'd just be fun to be able to eat everything you enjoy all in one day. Then after we finish eating, we could go just sleep on the floor for awhile. Once we're all alert and awake, we could go to a theme park and ride every single ride they have there, from the baby ones meant for 3-year-olds, to the biggest roller coasters that have 5 loops and 4 fast drops. At night we could look up at the sky as the theme park closes and there are fireworks everywhere.
Then a third kind of perfect day for me could be with either a significant other or super close friends that would follow you on these crazy ideas. On a warm, sunny day we'd just run around in the park, then go a really large field of grass so we could lie down and stare at the white clouds that pass by. We'd then travel really far to a place with a beach that we'd all never been before, just so we could explore the town and play in the sand. There'd be a cart with some shaved ice, and we'd eat it when the sun starts to set because sunsets are always the prettiest things on the beach. After the sun sets we'd continue to lay down in the sand since it's so warm, and look at the stars and moon up at the dark sky...
After actually writing what a "perfect day" would be for me, all of these sound more like fantasies and dreams that would seems kind of hard for me to achieve in life... Maybe if CAMP still exists 5 to 10 years from now when our parents wouldn't control us so much, we could do Perfect Day #3 (: That'd be so enjoyable...
Now I know what my fairytale is, but I can't find it.
