So this is more like a tweet, but since I don't have a twitter, nor do I want one...

The girl in front of me is playing tetris (& rocking it!), I want a cookie really, really, bad, & the Metroplex needs to invest in a public transportation system! NOW!

That is all!

What the...!

I have followers... I have followers?! Well, now I really have to write in this thing.

So, I'm in computer class & I'm seriously considering leaving before the lecture starts. He just uses the powerpoints to give us the answers for our next quiz & he puts them up online, so, why bother showing up to class? I mean after I take the quiz I really don't have to be here... &, wow, am I boring!? (rhetorical question, no need to answer, thanks, I'd like to keep what little self esteem I possess in tact) Oooo, look, he's put squiggly line on the screen!... & now he gone back to talking about modems... shoot me.

All I've done for the past week, or so, has been school related & I think that is incredibly dull. Deadly dull... a bit like accounting. Maybe I should just quit school and become a lion tamer... :)*.  OK, enough with the Monty Python references.

I feel as if I should be saying something insightful and entertaining, but nothing really comes to mind. Maybe, I'll go read someone else's blog and get inspired to write something vaguely interesting. That would be nice... I think Haley G. Hoover has a new post up... (edit: Nope, it was Kristina).

*Sorry I put a smiley face in my post, but it couldn't be helped... my fingers have a mind of their own. I hate when people use smiley faces in anything that isn't  an IM or text... this will not develop into a rant. No, no it will not.... Bye.

I am currently typing this on a mac.. because I'm at bestbuy... I hate macs. This just feels wrong... the keys have no substance. I wish there was a dell nearby... Oh well. I'll update stuff later. I guess.

The above was typed late Firday night. Because a computer was nearby & I wanted to see what all the hype about Mac was about. I'm a PC & I own a pretty shiny yellow Dell. Named Luna. She has a Ravenclaw crest sticker on her. :)

So, as you've probably guessed I'm in Intro to Computers...yippy... My professor looks like he fell or something. I am genuinely conserned. Even though he's a terrible tech proff, I don't want him to be hurt in anyway. He's still a nice person. Hey, look, something about E-books!... My professor has never seen an E-book... Horror. Will this class ever end?

I still have to study for my Teach class & I really don't want to. If this lesson ever runs out of slides then I can leave... I really want to leave.

After today ,I don't have alot to do until the weekend, just some reading & junk. Maybe I'll be able to post a real blog about what's been going on, tomorrow.

# of songs in Zune Library: 2240
# of times I've almost fallen asleep this class: 4 (& continuing to multipy)
Nail Color: Black

Maybe Not...

So, I was bored & decided to look at fanfiction.net, because I'm a dork & I want to see if I can be bothered to read any of it. Turns out, I can't. I mean I only looked at the first page of HP FanFic, but my God! It was horrifying... How on earth do people feel they can publish some of the stuff they do on a website for all to see? I mean, really, Harry does not have a dark side nor is he gay & what's with people making up characters to fall in love with dead characters (Example: Rose Weasley (who?) & Sirius Black)... I mean, really? I know that blogging isn't much better, but at least I can write something that doesn't come out sounding like childish mush... at least I hope I can write something that doesn't come out like childish mush... :)

Rant concluded... So, I'm 86 pages into Chamber of Secrets (which is sort of sad, if you ask me) & I'm noticing that the reading level has gone up exponentially... It's crazy. The sentences are longer & have more complex structure & it's ten times more literary than Sorcerer's Stone. Which is probably what Jo was going for since her publisher told her that kid's books don't sell, so she took that to heart & made it much more adult... I like it!

& now, if I'm going to get through this book & start on Prisoner of Azkaban today, then I need to stop typing & start reading...

Oooo! & I watch Rowling's interview with Oprah & it was spectacular! J. K. Rowling is my hero!!! She didn't say one thing the same way through out the whole interview... do you know how amazing a person's vocabulary has to be to accomplish that? I mean, she absolutely amazing!!! OK now I really have to go read... :)

Must Keep Reading!!!

So, I'm doing the Harry Potter thing. Because I feel like it!
I finished Sorcerer's Stone & am now starting Chamber of Secrets but I have a long way to go if I have to finish all of the books by Monday & have done some of my school work... anyway... I really liked reading Sorcerer's Stone because I know that it's important to the overall series... that is the only reason I could keep reading! After reading this book 11 times the thrill is sort of gone, that's not to say that the funny bits aren't funny any more or the revelations the characters experience aren't meaningful, but after 11 times, you start to analyze more than you read for enjoyment. I started to notice sentence structure & word choice, & while I believe Rowling to be the most brilliant and gifted writer now living, I found my self drifting & not wanting to read... This, no doubt, is because the books grow with the initial reader. You start reading the series at around age 12 & then read each of them as they come out for the first time for the next 7 or so years... Harry Potter changed the way I loved reading. It was one of the first series I started reading & I will never forget it. Which sort of brings me to my next point...

I want to write a novel, maybe a book series, so that I can bring others into my own little fantasy world. I know that sounds insane especially since I have never wanted to write before, but Jo really opened up my eyes to the possibility of writing. I mean, if I could write something an eighth as good as J K Rowling then I would be happy beyond belief. This book, however, is not going to happen anytime soon. I have too much reading to get through!

Sorry if this post was super boring... I'm now off to read Chamber of Secrets. Wish me luck!! :)

Emotional Inconsistency & a Possible New Blog/ Vlog idea

I'm a very emotional person. I think I should let you know this in advance, since I'm all over the place right now. I just got back from my hall's bible study. I got a C on a paper in a class that should be, when considered against my other courses, easy. I was obsessing about that paper all yesterday. Then we had bible study & just about every person there broke out a story about how they lost someone dear to them. & now I'm sad... deeply sad. The paper isn't even a big deal anymore.

OK... moving on to happier subjects. So, I have this idea for a series type thing either on my vlog or here (I haven't decided where yet). We had a seminar here, last Friday  at my thoroughly Baptist school... about Harry Potter! Yes, that's right! HARRY POTTER!!!!!! It was absolutely beautiful. & now nothing in college is going to seem as awesome as having a speaker talk to you about the religious merit in HP! I am so shaken by this experience that I am now going to reread the entire Harry Potter series just so I can look at the stories in depth, not only for their literary value, but also because I want to pick apart J. K.'s theology. I'm so excited!

& now I'm going to late night because I'm starving... :)

P.S. The above post should have been submitted last Tuesday, but, because the Internet at school hates me, I was unable to submit it at the time I wrote it... if you followed that you deserve a medal...
Anyway... I'm now into 1 day of fall break. Isn't that exciting. Maybe I'll have time to blog of make a video for YouTube with all of my free time... when I'm not going to dentist and eye appointments...

Scissors, Tin cans, Telephones, & Awesomeness!

Today's blog comes to you in 3 parts. Count 'em 3!

Part 1:
I just spend the last 10 minutes hacking open a can of Spaghettios with a pair of scissors, because I haven't eaten all day & I don't own a can opener. I could have gotten something to eat that didn't require the possibility of my accidentally stabbing myself to death, but that just takes the fun out of life... That, & I really wanted Spaghettios... even if I did have to eat them cold, because I lack the foresight to bring a bowl that I can put in a microwave with me to college.
I am currently avoiding the effort of washing my clothes by blogging and eating a Scumdiddlyumptious bar... It's tasty & I win. Unfortunately, I did not get a golden ticket... my dreams are shattered.

Part 2:
I am now in constant fear of the telephone ringing at my job. I physically jump when it rings. Even if I don't have to answer it, because one of my bosses is sitting at the desk. I have really strange phobias.

Part 3:
I get to share my favorite movie with some of my friends tonight... & I'm not forcing them to watch it! They're watching it of their own free will!!!... well, actually my roommate doesn't really have a choice... unless she decides to leave... but she won't because the movie is absolutely brilliant (& I mean that with all the enthusiasm a Doctor Who fan can muster)!

Now, I think I'm going to go try do something productive. If the TV doesn't magically turn itself on...

My Obsession (Well, Obsessions...)

I love Warehouse 13 & right now I'm watching the season finale & my heart is breaking. I love this show it's the melding together of my 2 favorite things: sci-fi & history. It's like the U.S. equivalent of Doctor Who without the time travel & I love it soooo much!!!! Not as much as Doctor Who... but still...

Oooooo! A comercial for Caprica just came on & I can't wait to watch that again!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh bring on S.T.O!!!!!!! I'm so excited!!! It's totally the coolest American Sci-Fi show!!!! With all the references to greek mythology & theology it's so beautiful!

OK. So in a couple days I've become obsessed with blogging... weird. I'm a little worried that I've blogged 3 times today, but maybe I've found something that can help relieve some of the pressure of school. That would be nice. I just hope it doesn't end up screwing with my school work ethic.

Right then... back to Warehouse!

This small act of defiance toward the system will not cause my downfall!

That's what I have to keep telling myself.

...I just skipped my first class... Ever! But I am resolved to be guilt free! I already know all the information & we had a quiz last class, so  we won't have one this time... & I really don't want to go!

"But Amethyst", you say, "You're just listing excuses. How can you even begin to justify such a deplorable act, as skipping class? What will you say if someone asks you why you weren't there? What if something important happens & you missed it? Then what will you do?"

The answer to these questions is a simple one.

& now I'm super nervous!!!! But the class is just about half way finished so I can't change my mind now! Maybe a nice nap will loose this insoluble guilt that has lodged itself in the core of my being... maybe. :)

My Computers Class is a Joke

So, I'm sitting in class right now & no one seems to care that I'm on Blogger. How shocking!... & yet I'm somehow not surprised... I'm just sitting here typing away & staring at the 95% I made on a lab because for some reason the fact that page 2 is numbered page 2 means I loose 5 points off my grade! My professor is super meticulous about everything in the labs but last class he couldn't get his computer started because he didn't load his operating system on his laptop properly! Ugh!

OK. Tirade over. So, last night I thought I was home free and without a major project to complete this week... I was seriously mistaken. I have a biblical interpretation due next Tuesday for my honors Old Testament class. When with the work end! It's OK though, I just have to make it through this week & the next & then I get to enjoy not doing as much during fall break! I can make it 'till then. I think...

I'm super boring. The only person who is going to read this is probably my RA... & I apologize, if I bore her to death, in advance. She is a much loved part of our hall & I would hate for my sad attempt at blogging to be her untimely end.

I think my depressing  excuse of a computer professor is starting the lecture for today... so I should probably pay attention. I'll post something else later... I guess.

Oooooo!! I Remember Now!!

This blog is kind of an extension of my vlog... which I will be starting soon. I hope. I just ordered a new camera for my birthday & I am super excited.

OK. Now I'm really going to go eat!!

A Proper Formal Introduction

So... My name is Amethyst. & I love all things to do with books. I love to read. A lot... Probably a lot more than a regular human being should. I absolutely love everything to do with the UK and I am basically going to major in British history. I go to school at DBU (Dallas Baptist University) & I like my roommate alot, despite some of her obvious flaws... such as a distaste for Sci-Fi television shows and the belief that Harry Potter is of the devil. Other than that, she's pretty cool. Anyway... I'm an aspiring librarian & I want to write a book some day.

I don't really know what to do with this blog. I'm just starting it & I have no idea what to write about. I know some stuff I'm gonna vlog about but I don't know about this... Oh well! Maybe I'll come up with something really interesting to talk about... hopefully in the near future!

For now, I must find something to abate my hunger. My stomach is eating itself! Aaaahhh! ;)

Sunday, September 19, 2010


So, this is my blog... it's kind of nice in here... sort of open and empty. Maybe I should do something about the emptiness.
Right now I should be working on a paper that's due tomorrow instead I set up a blog account... I procrastinate in strange ways...
Well later!
(I say that assuming anyone else is going to read this but myself... ha!)
