Experience is…

Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you. – Aldous Huxley

I believe this quote to be true. I can’t explain it I just know it is. Trust me I tried writing examples to explain it more clearly but it didn’t work. So this is one you have to figure out on your own. Do you have any thoughts on this quote? Comment them below:)

P.S. It’s a month until my birthday!

I never have to live without you…

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. – A. A. Milne

The main reason I love this quote is because when I was little (like 5 years old) I always thought about love in that way. I mean I always said, I hope my mom, my dad, my brother and I would die at the same time so none of us would need to live with out  the others. I felt that way because I loved them so much I could not dream of a world with out them. I have known them my whole life and don’t know life with out them. So I guess it’s more a fear my 5 year old self had. Now a little bit older I understand that fear of loss more then I did when I was younger. So I guess what I’m saying is I understand this quote. Do you get it?

Winter

Winter contains many joys for me. I enjoy skiing, ice skating and many other things winter brings.  The cold I can’t say I love or even like. But snow makes winter a great season for me. Snowball fights, sledding, skiing and just trying to walk in the big piles of snow are always fun for me. As much as I love snow I would love it so much more if it were warm.  I wish it were more like this-

Winter brings many good and many bad things. Good things include all the fun stuff like going outside and playing in the snow and all the fun activities you can do when it’s cold. And a cold winter day makes hot chocolate taste SO much better. But the bad things are like IT’S TOO DARN COLD and I have to get up at 7 am to go to school. In the warmer months getting up is just annoying but getting up and out of your nice warm bed and pajamas, to walk around in the cold to get ready for a long day at school… How-bout NO. The lucky thing for me is I have a week long break coming up starting today the 14th and ending the 24th. And I will be on a curse with a couple new books and my Grandparents! So that means no cold early mornings for me, I think winter just got better!

What do you like/dislike about winter? What are you doing for your break? Comment below!

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt. -Charles M. Schulz

Oh my god this is so true! Chocolate and love go together very well! Happy almost Valentines day!

The Fault in Our Stars Book Review

Hazel is 17-years old and has been living with cancer in her lungs since she was 13.  Her family believed her to be depressed seeing as she didn’t spend any time with friends and spent a lot of her time thinking about death. But that all changed one day in her support group when she first met Augustus Waters.  Augustus, is a hot young guy with a great smile and happens to be recently cancer free.  At first sight Augustus literally can’t take his eyes off Hazel. The two soon become an odd type of friends. Hazel doesn’t want to like him as much as she does because of her unstable state. But Augustus has a different view. See what happens to Hazel and Augustus in The Fault in Our Stars By John Green.

I LOVED The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I could not put it down (that made for some late nights and getting to school late).  I plan to read it many more times. It is so perfect I can’t find it in me to put it in my book pile (I have all my books in a pile), at the moment it is sitting on my night table even though I finished it well over 2-weeks ago. John Green is an AMAZING writer. I would suggest any of his books (Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns book reviews later). Though his writing contains some cursing and mature subjects, it is really good.  I think The Fault in Our Stars is a book everyone should read at some point in there life. I would say that anyone under 10 shouldn’t read it. This is a touching and truthful and defiantly not sugar coated (at any point) story. The characters are great and you really fall in love with them. Warning: it’s a bit of a teary book, have tissues near by! The Fault in Our Stars is told from the point of view of Hazel Grace. She is a girl and it’s written by a boy, which causes some interesting thoughts! I would give The fault in Our Stars by John Green, a 9.9 out of 10.

The Fault in Our Stars is being made into a movie, which I’m VERY excited about. The movie comes out June 6, 2014 so you have some time to read it before then. The trailer was recently released click on this link to see it.

Also as a side note, it’s Spirit Week at my school and tomorrow is come in as a favorite book characters day. So I’m going as Isaac (a boy from The Fault in Our Stars) my friend Kiki is going as Augustus (One of the main characters who is a dude from The Fault in Our Stars) and my friend Ali is going as Hazel (The main character of The Fault in Our Stars). Yes, me and Kiki are girls and yes we are going as boys but who cares.

What are your thoughts in The Fault in Our Stars? Have you read it? Do you have any book suggestions for me or book reviews??

I’m sorry, in all the hectic-ness of the Holidays and school starting again I forgot my Wednesday quote! But I’m back and posting my quote this week. I love this quote. People are always too worried about what others’ think. Believe in your self and your beauty even if others can’t see it. Don’t try and change for someone else, if you change yourself, do it for you, not anyone else. If your, you the right people will find you.

I hope you all had a great holiday season! Tell me how yours went below.

Happy Holidays

The holiday season is upon us. It has come so quickly and will soon be gone. Ever year I make Christmas gifts for my family. They have varied from bookmarks to ornaments. They are each personalized for each person and hand-made/decorated by me. I enjoy doing this. But it’s a lot of work. This year I was so busy I found it hard to fit it into my schedule. But I did. I’ll wait till after Christmas to reveal what I made this year since I haven’t given all of mine out.

He's Mean One...

He’s A Mean One…

For years my family has done a secret Santa gift exchange. The cousins pick from the cousins’ hat and the adults pick from the adults hat. There’s normally a money limit to keep it fair. But the last two years we haven’t gotten around to it. This year us cousins did it our selves. The oldest of us, Veronica, did all the planing and hosted the exchange. So last week we all went to her house for pizza and gift giving. My lovely cousin Kelly had me and gave the best gifts. I received lip balm, a bath bomb, bubble bath, nail decorations, creams and hair chalk!  I couldn’t have asked for better gifts so, thanks you to Kelly! I picked my cousin Mitchell. I got him a rubber-band shooter, a head scratcher-thing and bacon flavored toothpaste. After the gift giving and game playing most cousins departed but a few of us stayed to watch The Conjuring. It was a very fun night that lasted into the morning!

My gifts from Kelly!

My gifts from Kelly!

So I just wanted to put something out there in case I forget to later. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year! And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, happy whatever your holiday might be!

Tell me, do you do a secret Santa in your family or make gifts? Tell me what you got/gave or made!  Comment below 🙂
