A Vampire Surfer Boy Who Bakes Cookies? What?

I read that book. You know, Breaking Dawn? Yeah, it was really good. Well, most of it was. There were about 200 pages that I felt had no purpose. However, there were exactly 222 pages that make the book worth everything. Out of 743 pages, I suppose the majority of it was good.
But I feel cheated, in a way.
I feel that the main character made the wrong choice.
I feel that the author twisted logic and tradition to fit her own agenda.
I suppose that's okay for an author, but when one describes someone as frozen in the point of time where they ceased to live as a human and merely existed one expects that all organs cease working. If that was not the case, I would've appreciated being told so.
As far as I'm concerned, vampires shoot blanks.


I have baked around a million cookies within this past week. I almost feel like declaring that I will never bake another cookie again!

But alas! That is untrue.


Surfer Boy (who I have never mentioned before on this blog) got his braces off. It was a definite improvement. We are nothing more than friends. I mean, every once and a while he makes me feel like someone could actually consider loving me.
But as I said, we are nothing more than friends, so he does not.

I read your blog and most of it made me sad. You have so much life ahead of you to worry about all the drama now. Believe me when I tell you that in 10 years it will all seem so trivial somehow, and whoever it is you think you are missing will be but a ghost of your past. You will grow and change in so many ways that you will hardly remember how it felt to be 16. Most 16 year old girls are so wrapped up in their own fabricated drama that they forget to fully enjoy standing on the brink of adulthood and absorbing all that they can to mold them into the person they will eventually become. I think you are capable of doing that and basking in it! Remember-Jumping for Joy is not physical!

I don't think anyone is completely happy in life. How boring would that be? The fun of life is striving for better no matter what it is...writing, painting, being a better person or even making people happier and healthier around you. Pain and longing are just as important as joy because without them what would joy feel like? I like your version of back in my head. :) Now I wish I would had kept it on my play list. I am trying to switch it up a little.

Naturally, most of my blog is going to sound sad. I don't feel the need to blog about happy things. Blogging/Journaling in general is just my way of figuring out how to deal with my worries and fears. I thought was name was clever since I'm a crip and all. lol

pease porrigdge,

I think it's truly possible to be completely happy because I view being completely happy as more of a ratio rather than actually being completely happy. Of course, no one's life is perfect (that wouldn't be living), but I feel that those that are "completely happy" have more constant reasons to be happy than reasons to feel sad. I'm more of a 50/50 right now.
I know! I love that version! I think I like it better than the original.

Don't worry all, I am figuring things out.

I am not worried about you at all. I always think of you as one of the happiest people I know. It is just your nature Nat. You will never be the depressed type. :)
