Yesterday morning just had that... cozy feeling! It was raining outside and I just noticed that my favorite tree in the backyard is partially yellow and brown! There was a buttery rum candle burning in the kitchen.

It was chilly outside.

It was quiet downstairs and I had a space heater going in my bedroom, even though it wasn't super cold.

I was also wearing huge red house shoes that look like pigs. Still am, to be perfectly honest! My friend from Comm. Central, which is my homeschool co-op, if I haven't told you, let me borrow them this week! I've already been to the grocery store, Chick-Fil-A, and the library in them.

Why that makes me cozy I really don't know!

School's going well right now and I just got elected as High School Student Council President! Yeah, I know, it's got a lot of capital letters! w00t!

We get to pick the topic for our next essay because Gulliver's Travels is too weird! o_0 Have you read it? That makes me happy because I can now somehow write about The Power of Six...

...which I just finished a few minutes ago! And I got it from the library Monday night! I'm gonna post a review on I Am Number Four and hopefully one on the movie, as soon as I see it. Then this ^ there!

It's Christmas time! Oh yes it is! Don't even try to argue. Don't dare. There is garland strewn about the Living Room and the Tree base is set up. Notice the awe in which that was typed. *wink*

I wish I could communicate the joy that Christmas and everything relating to it brings me. I'll try some time! I've been excited about Christmas for a couple months now and as soon as I get some money I will be going shopping! I also need to ascertain whether my best friend is coming to town.

I'm making friends with people at Comm. Central and by this point you probably all think I'm this hopeless girl who doesn't have any friends and gets excited about everything. That's definitely not the truth! It just feels better to let it all out when you're happy than when you're in the dumps. Just wait for the horrible post when I am. You will regret reading it! *laughs*

Unfortunately, my dear little baby computer, who is a mini, is going through one of those phases. You know how children are? He just won't cooperate and takes so long to do things! Anyway, it's a love/hate relationship. The purpose of this little spiel was just to tell y'all that it takes a long time to post and do stuffs online, so don't forget about me! I'll be around. And I'm having trouble commenting on blogs, but that's my problem!

'Nough for now...

That's phenomenal.

Review on The Only Alien on the Planet

Author: Kristen D. Randle
Genre: Drama
Rating: PG-12

“...something's seriously wrong with him.”

   “They've all gotten used to him. The one who never speaks. The one who never smiles. They all say he's retarded. So, though his name is Smitty, they call him “The Alien.” and from the moment Ginny sees him she knows she has to meet him. Because she's been feeling weird since she and her family moved from the West Coast. She knows what it's like to feel alone. Ginny decides to become his friend. But Smitty is very different from anyone Ginny has ever known. And she soon realizes that reaching out to him might destroy him. Because in his world, there is no love. No pain. No room for anything – or anyone. Until Ginny comes along...”*

   I really wasn't expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. I kind of read this as a favor! I ended up really loving all the characters and could resonate with all of them. The plot was interesting and wasn't predictable at all. The main characters were seniors, but I didn't get sick of the “school” setting. Even though the plot isn't something that happens to anyone, the setting was normal, but not boring. It delved into some pretty deep issues, one especially that I've been thinking about a lot, and will be talking of in my NaNo novel. Go read it, it's worth it! I gave this a PG-12 rating, if that even exists. Practically speaking, I recommend this to anyone over 12 with no limitations. I'd give this 4 out of 5 stars!

Lovely Things (Food!)

Some lovely things I found on weheartit! Disclaimer: most of my pictures are from there! I'll let you know when they've been taken by your's truly!

A couple *coughcoughALLcough* of these have to do with food because I'm hungry right now! (I just love to eat!) Anyway...

Delicious colorful gummy bears!

I haven't had any in WAY too long!

That's it! I want gummy bears for Christmas!

Oh, and remind me to put a detailed Christmas list on here!

These remind me of a certain gummy-bear-infatuated monkey on a cute movie called "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs"! 

We all know Oreos are milk's favorite cookie, but they're also mine!

Split an Oreo = love in rainbow form!
Starbucks is marvelous!

I actually don't like coffee AT ALL, but love the ice creamy related things!

Besides, the atmosphere at Starbucks is so... Inviting!

It makes me want to go and STUDY! (While spending my money to get random foodie items! Of course.)
Icy lemonade. Can't be beaten on a hot day... or any day!

Especially with the cute mint garnish!

Brings back memories of summer.  Isn't it weird that summer is already a memory?

I wouldn't trade fall for it again though!

And last and definitely not least...


The soup of quickness, cheapness, and coziness.

Isn't it though?

Nom, supper's soon!

What are your foodie loves?
