Spending the morning in bed doing some of my homework. I’m glad to be getting things done so early in the vacation. I swore I wouldn’t procrastinate this time and it looks like I’ll be keeping my promise yayyy!
I have a book to read for my APUSH class, a review to write on said book, three tests the day I get back, a super long portfolio to compile for theatre, and an essay about what I believe.
I saw it the day after it came out (no midnight premiere for me, it was a school night!) and I thought it was positively brilliant! And the music was absolutely breathtaking. (The little grey box below is a clip of them singing Misty Mountains and it’s so beautiful it gives you chills. My friend and I actually sang this at lunch the other day at school hahaha)
What did you guys think? Did you see it at midnight? How well did you think it was adapted from the book? Are you looking forward to the next one? I sure am!
On October 3rd, everyone should come to school in a pink shirt. All the news reporter would come to schools and be like “Mysterious phenoneom when high school kids all around the nation wear pink shirts” and a news reporter goes to a student and the student says “On Wednesday, we wear pink.”
Hearing Daleks speaking in German shouldn't be funny at all.
Because they are the freakiest things ever.
But it is funny. Not because it’s German, just because you expect them to go around yelling “exterminate” and then you hear something along the lines of “exterminieran” and it’s so not funny but it really is.
And it’s like, stop laughing because people are dying and everyone is in danger and the very existence of the universe is being threatened.
But at the same time it’s like, what the heck kind of sound was that I have never heard a Dalek make a sound like that where did that even come from oh I see we are in Germany now, look at that, that would explain it.
And which do you prefer, Miss Monica Jean? (Same anon, by the way :])
Hahaha hello again! And aww I love it when people call me Miss Monica or Miss Monica Jean!
Deckled edge for sure! :]
I don’t own many books with a rough cut, so for me, having a book with a deckled edge makes it a bit more unique in my collection.
That being said, I can’t wait until my 1,278 page, Jane Austen monster comes in the mail! Another rough cut book!
I almost feel like it’s the best of both worlds because on a clean cut book, the edges are clean all the way around. But on a rough cut book, only the edge opposite the binding is roughed, the top and bottom are still clean. So you get a bit of both, I suppose.
I just like the deckled edge better. I think it looks really sharp, it adds character, and it feels really great.
And somehow the varying cuts define the pages better, stressing the importance of each individual page as a contributor to the entire story.
But maybe I’m over-thinking it hahaha it just looks pretty and enchanting!
imagine if there was a chemistry fandom and people shipped elements with other elements and then other people were like NO THAT ONLY FORMS A COVALENT BOND IONIC BONDS ARE BETTER and they have ship wars over sodium chloride and sodium carbonate
I have been a horrific lurker of your blog all day (JESUS this thing is addictive, I'm racking up the page numbers...!!) And I though I should send a word saying thank you for the entertainment :) I'm a fellow nerd from England hoping to study in Ireland for university, so I hope you're suitably jealous (or just come visit me!) I would take off anon... but I don't have tumblr, so I'll live forever a shadow on your question list! Fare thee well.
Hahaha thank you so much! I am glad you’re having fun with it! :]
I am so jealous of you! Lucky duck. I’d love to see Ireland! And I will visit England one day! Maybe even live there, who knows ;] Thanks for the sweet message!
Have you seen the trailer for the film adaptation of Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower? (If not, click here.)
So everyone, tell us what you think!
As for me, I’m thrilled to see this book come to life on the big screen. I am so excited to see Logan Lerman as Charlie, but most excited to see Emma Watson. From the looks of the trailer, she’s going to be a fantastic Sam. I can’t wait! My biggest hope for the movie is that it will be able to portray life in high school through Charlie’s eyes in a way that it feels genuine and authentic. (Plus, it helps that one of my favorite bands, Imagine Dragons is playing in the background!)
Have you read the book? What did you think of it? Are you excited for the movie? What did you think of the trailer? Are you pleased with the cast? What are your hopes for the movie? Which part of the book are you most excited to see turned to film?
What were your final grades, Monica Jean? I bet you got all A's!
Hahaha I almost did! I got an A in every class, save Honors Biology and Honors Algebra 2.
I got B’s in those. :\
My excuse for Honors Bio is that science isn’t my strongest subject. My excuse for Honors Algebra 2 is that I never took Algebra 1, whoops. You can imagine how difficult an honors math class would be having not taken the prerequisite to that class. But my teacher was absolutely fantastic!
