Don't ask me why I randomly went incommunicado for a couple weeks; I have no idea. I've barely even been on my actual computer all this time too.

Yesterday was my birthday; it feels kind of weird to be a legitimate adult now. Nice, but strange.

And I finally got my Kindle today. I'm so happy. :) I can't wait til I can get my checking account set up and start buying awesome books. 

I've also acquired a roommate for next year. She's an awesome girl, and I'm looking forward to meeting her in person in a few months. I think it will be a fun year.

I guess that's about it, other than to say that I'm (hopefully) back now.


Day 21: Your Favorite Color

My favorite color is blue. Like, almost every shade of blue.

I love bright, clear sky blue, robin's egg blue, the deep, murky blue color of twilight. 

I love the quiet, calm sort of blue that happens at dawn and right before sunset. Then there's the inky blue-black at midnight, that's nice too.

I like ice blue, and the syrupy blue of a blue raspberry slushie, and TARDIS blue. I love the sad kind of greyish blue when it rains.

I like the royal blue of my class ring, and soft, baby blue, and the blue that's hard to explain on my favorite cardigan.

I like blue. Blue is good.

Day 20: If You Had A Time Machine, Where Would You Go?

I would most likely go to the past. I would go to Revolutionary France and chill at Versailles. I would go hang with Vincent Van Gogh, and Shakespeare, and Agatha Christie, and all those cool people. I'd check out Victorian London. I'd go way, way back to the beginning and see what really happened. It'd be a grand time, really. 

And I'd do it all while wearing a fez. Cos fezzes are cool.

Day 18: Your Dream Wedding

Coming from someone who used to be one of those little girls who sat around planning out their weddings and families and what they were going to name their kids (in elementary school, I was going to have two boys and a girl: Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Things have changed a bit), this is probably gonna be a long post.

My dream wedding... Well, the colors would be ivory and ice blue. My bouquet would be 12 lillies with an ice blue ribbon around them. My bridesmaids dresses would be ice blue silk: 

My engagement ring:                                                   
My cake would be a three tiered red velvet cake with a raspberry filling in the center and cream cheese frosting. (Now I really want some cake).

It would be in the fall, maybe September or October, in a traditional type church with stained glass windows and pews. 

And of course, my dress:

Yep, that sounds good to me. I'm sure there are a million other details I could think of, but I save that stuff for when I'm actually planning the wedding. Yay!

Day 17: Your Religious Beliefs

I believe in God. I'm a Christian, to put a label to it.

Enough said? Yep.

Day 16: 10 Ways to Win Your Heart

1. Be nice to me.

2. Be supportive of me! And be there for me, no matter what. Be my shoulder to cry on, and all that.

3. Surprise me (sometimes). Surprises are nice. Sometimes.

4. Be intellectual and be able to carry on an engaging and witty conversation with me.

5. Perversely, be silly and a little crazy! Life's more fun that way.

6. Be a nerd.

7. Like Harry Potter. 6 & 7 aren't exactly mutually exclusive.

8. Have a sense of humor!

9. Don't be condescending.

10. Don't be a jerk, a player, a womanizer, or a douche bag. Be sweet, romantic, sensitive, sincere, and fun. Like me for me. Be yourself. That's all I ask.

Day 15: 5 Things You Would Say to 5 Different People

1. I lurve you. :3 

2. You seriously make me want to shoot myself every time you open your mouth. Don't get hit too hard in the head with anything, cos you need all the brain cells you can get.

3. What happened?

4. "Boo, you whore." And other things related to Bridesmaids and Mean Girls. And also Alan Rickman. (You know who you are.)

5. I miss you! And you! And also you! (Cheap shot, that was directed towards three different people. Way to cheat the system.)

Day 14: 10 Things About You People Don't Really Expect

I'm gonna assume this is from the viewpoint of someone who doesn't know me well.

1. I'm really sensitive. And overemotional.

2. I have conflicting interests. On one hand I'm a total nerd, but I also love fashion, and things such as that.

3. I can be really loud.

4. I can be really quiet.

5. I'm outgoing around people that I know well, but around people I don't, I'm usually pretty shy.

6. I'm a dog person.

7. I like crafty stuff, and making stuff, though I'm not particularly great at any one area. I like knitting, and I'm getting better at it, and I also like making jewelry and sometimes sewing. 

8. I eat a ton. My friends can vouch for this; I'm always either eating or wanting to eat.

9. I'm not really very good at math or science, nor do I like either at all. A lot of people think, oh, she's smart, she must be great at everything. Nuh-uh. English is where it's at for me.

10. I also absolutely suck at geography and sometimes history. It's more selective with history, I can remember a lot about things I'm interested in (17th century France, mayhaps), but ask me about any of the wars, and...nada.

Day 13: Something That Never Fails to Make You Feel Better

No matter what I'm feeling, no matter how sad I am or what's got me down, there is always something I can turn to that will make me feel so much better: Harry Potter.

Over the last 12 years, whenever I was bored, or lonely, or sad, or upset, or anything such as that, I knew that grabbing a Harry Potter book or popping in one of the DVD's (or in the really old days, VHS's) could always brighten my mood. 

The characters J.K. Rowling has created sometimes feel more real to me than people I actually know. Is that sad? Maybe. I don't care. They've all been my friends for as long as I can remember, and I've quite literally grown up with them, in more ways than one.

I know that no matter what, the books will always be there to make me feel better about myself, or at the very least, take my mind off things for a while.

Day 12: Your Favorite Movie

My favorite movie (other than the Harry Potter movies) is Moulin Rouge.

It's so sweet and sad and funny and the music's great. And it has an amazing message. "The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return."
