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!
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??
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I fell in love with this quote the minute I saw it! It is so true. Life is an experiment and it could go either way, good or bad. Everyone is just looking for the data to see which way is best to live their life. The best life is the one that you live the way you want to live it. If you choose to live a simple life do that, but if you want a taste of this and a taste of that. GO FOR IT. Experiment to see what you like best see what results make you happy! If the results you get don’t work for you, try something different! What are you thoughts on this quote? Tell me below:)

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.
Though I may call many of my friends bro (“Sup bro”, “No bro”, “Yo bro” and any sentence I can add bro into), I only have one brother. Noah. He is two and a half years older than me. We have your average brother-sister relationship. If I say,”Hi Noah” at school, he says, “Shut-up midget.” or just the plain “No”. Although that doesn’t make much sense because I am taller then him. Now his words might sound, lets say, mean. But if you know him and speak his language, you’ll get it. Now I’m not fluent in it but I know that things that he says like “Shut-up midget” really means “Please be quiet, my dear sister” and when he says, “Hannah has no friends, it means “Hannah, I’m proud of how many friends you made at school”. Then there is my personal favorite:
Me: “Good night Noah, I love you!”
Him: “Yeah, bye”.
What he is really saying is, “I love you too, good night!”. So maybe it’s not every brother-sister relationship, but its ours. And I love it! I love him! November 15th, 15-years ago my “Dear” Brother Noah was born.
Happy late Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for many things and people, including my family and friends, the wonderful life I get to live and all the amazing books I’ve been reading (more book reviews coming soon!)
