9th-Sep-2007 03:54 pm - I... am sick.
I hate being sick. I hate it because there is nothing I can do about it. While I am sick, I do the strangest things... such as counting charges on my debit card based on brand names... For example: since January, I have charged exactly $712.14 towards Abercrombie and Fitch. Interesting. It doesn't feel as if I've spent that much. Oh well...

I have been gone for 5 weeks. It's really just bad luck, actually. I didn't mean to abandon this site. Sorry to all that have come by faithfully to check! I had gotten sick, recovered, went on a cruise to Alaska, started term, and have only now had the time to spare. How awful, I know. Well, I shall indeed try to make my posts more regular. Certainly not with a span of five weeks between them.

I haven't disappeared, I have simply taken leave in order to read and re-read my own copy of Deathly Hallows. I am working on finishing it a third time, then I will return. =]

Harry Rotter's internet hoax

 
By THOMAS WHITAKER

A HARRY Potter nut has written a FAKE 250,000-word version of the next book and put it on the internet.

The spoof of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows fooled fans.

But publishers Bloomsbury insist the online version is bogus.

A spokeswoman said: “We are aware of the internet version but it is not the real thing. People will have to wait until July 21.”

The fake has been posted on at least one Potter site.

A literary expert said: “There are tens of thousands of words. It claims to be the real McCoy.”

It has a happy ending, with Harry marrying his sweetheart Ginny Weasley.

But author JK Rowling has hinted that her hero will DIE in the seventh and final Harry book.

An unprecedented security operation is in place to make sure it is not leaked.

Only three people other than JK, all top publishing bosses, have read it.

Books will be delivered to shops in locked containers tied with steel chains.

More than three million are expected to be sold in 24 hours, beating Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which sold two million in a day in 2005.

           I am officially obsessed with Harry Potter... Well, maybe not Harry Potter per se, but the book... and anything having to do with it... It's hysteria on my part... It's all just so exciting. I can't wait till the last book comes out (although it is bittersweet).  I hope it ends well. I hope that the series will be noticed as a classic. I hope that, one day... one very very far day, my children will read these books. They are that awesome.

    Ok, ok, I'll be the first to admit. they aren't literacies finest pieces as far as writing goes, but the story line is captivating. Hmm... We'll see. I'll keep you posted. =]

                       Retailers fear that the ending of the series and the accompanying deaths could cause such level of distress among fans that Waterstone's, a major bookseller, are planning to set up a helpline for readers.

    15th-Jul-2007 11:48 am - Sundays...
            I, myself, am not a religious person. I grew up in an environment that was, having been raised in a church, however, as I got older, I began to question it's validity. Saying that, it is daunting that I would have the obligation of going to church every Sunday morning, evening, and even on Wednesday nights. Furthermore, my visits aren't actually visits at all. In fact, I am more faithful than most members, not being able to miss a night. Not by choice, my source of income and refuge is by people who are so fundamental in their beliefs (or so they would have you believe), that if they were to find that I had not gone one night, there would actually be consequence. Intriguing? Well, not on my half.

            I waste thirteen to fourteen precious hours a week commuting, sitting, standing, and talking at the church. Hours that could be spent in productiveness. But nay. My assessment is, it won't be much longer till I can stop this chain of madness. I will be able to purge myself from the habit I've held since birth. Once my terms at college are done, I will be free! Oh yes, my parents will, then, have no hold over the days worth of work I will be able to accomplish. I yearn for that day.
    13th-Jul-2007 11:21 pm - Hindsight is 20/20
            There are many things that I wish I could change. Decisions I wish I didn't make, places I wish I had never gone, situations I should never have been in. I have many regrets, but I try not to think of them that way.

                                                                        Experiences.

            I feel as if I have aged 20 years in this last year. I've had to do so many things I never thought I would ever do. Things I told myself, once, I would never do. Yet, being in certain situations changes your perspective- your way of thinking.

            You lose beliefs, while gaining others. You accept things, once forsaken, and turn to new ways of life. It is difficult growing up, putting your faith in something, then utterly turning from them. Many people will be forgotten, angered by the events, but you can't give in. You can not change for others. You have to hold on to whatever you believe, no matter what others say. In the end, you will have to face the choices and consequences for your self. Would you rather be charged for something you were pressured into, or for the cause that you cling to?

            Whether good or bad, the outcome will have been based on the foundation lain by choices you have made.

            Hindsight is always 20/20. When you are no longer in the position, you have a chance to analyze the choices you made, and there will be some things that you will see would have had a better outcome, had you handled something differently... had you changed a detail or two.

            However, it would not be wise to dwell on such things... There is nothing you can do to change the past, and to dwell would bring you to your demise.

            Personally, I must learn to let go. I have no problem with forgiveness, when it comes to others... but it's quite different when concerning myself. My own choices. I know it's wrong, but I have much higher expectations for myself then I do for the rest of the human race. Be at ease...
    Acto non verba.
