Book Problems and Genuine Friends

I’ve been having some book problems lately. Something I never thought I’d here myself say.
Maybe I’m getting sick of the Young Adult genre, maybe I’ve been reading too much, or maybe I need to find more books. Maybe.
      My current stack:

  • Hate List by Jennifer Brown
    (The main character seems like a wannabe who is clueless when it comes to real teenage problems. This makes it difficult to read.)
  • The Six Rules of Maybe by Deb Caletti
    (I usually love her books, but once again, the main character seems clueless when it comes to real issues. Inexperienced I guess; I don’t know)
  • The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To by D.C. Pierson
  • Tales of the Madman Underground by John Barnes
  • The House of Tomorrow by Peter Bognanni
  • How to Build a House by Dana Reinhardt
  • Feed by M.T. Anderson
I watched some movies with my mom last night:
Little Fockers was hilarious. I hope they make another one.
I Am Number Four surprised me. It was amazing. Not cliché at all.

I haven’t really been doing much else. I sleep, read, watch movies, daydream, cyber stalk Johnny Depp (really but not really), post to Twitter from my phone, and avoid Facebook as much as possible.
My Blackberry gives me issues every now and then, but it’s still more convenient than other phones. That’s why I still have it. But I really need Android’s apps. It’s still an ongoing debate; Blackberry vs. Android.
I like Twitter because it’s like I’m talking to myself, but it’s public so sometimes I get feedback from different people. Twitter isn’t necessarily about friends; Facebook is. I’ve never really been a social person, so I love Twitter. 
With Facebook, I always wonder who knocked me off their friends list this week and such. I see the happy lives of people from my past who I doubt are really friends to me. I have a few friends I have never met; those are the genuine ones, as far as I can see. 

The Best and the Worst

I don’t think saying ‘I don’t know what to say..‘ is a good way to start a blog, so this might turn into a post consisting of fragments.

I’ve pretty much been Agnostic all my life, despite being raised in a Christian-Baptist family.
I started reading this book, The Case for Christ: A Journalist’s Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus by Lee Strobel. He makes some good points. At first it’s hard to pick up, because you’re probably thinking ‘Oh this is just another one of those boring Christian books that talks about life-changing experiences. Blah blah blah…’. But no, this highly educated journalist (who specializes in Law) goes around the world interviewing highly-recognized scholars for the truth.
I would have been done with it a couple days ago, but I own the book, so before I started reading it, I finished reading the library books I had at the time so I could focus on this book. I have this fear of running out of books to read. I’ve been trying to stretch it as far as I can, until I pickup some more library books. One chapter left, and eight books on hold at the library, ready for pickup. Perfect.

Twitter is basically my life. I probably just talk to myself, but there are people out there who are similar in nature, and sometimes use Twitter to vent. I prefer Twitter over Facebook any day. Why? Because Facebook is based on friends (which I lack), and social skills (which I lack). Twitter is more relaxed. I feel exposed on Facebook, whereas on Twitter I have some privacy. I also enjoy talking to the people on Twitter than I do with my ‘friends’ on Facebook. My friends on Facebook mostly consist of old friends from school, family, and some internet buddies I have acquired during the years (most of whom are great-especially one in particular). Twitter also gives you the opportunity to talk with celebrities. The only frustrating part is not all of the celebrities are on Twitter.

My cats are still crazy. One eats fortune cookies, but they both eat beef jerky. The fat one never shuts up at night. She sounds like a softer version of a wolf howling at the moon. Needless to say, sleep rarely comes. I love cats, so I’m willing to suffer.

That’s really all that is worth mentioning.

Usual Problems, and Other Weird Things

My memory can’t make up its mind. Sometimes it’s good to me, and sometimes it’s its usual self; useless.
So far, I still can’t remember a book I looked at a couple years ago, but never read; and a car commercial from about maybe two years ago. I can’t remember if the car was an Infinity, or a Lexus; but I’m pretty sure it was an Infinity. I’d like to save the video to my favorites on Youtube.
Speaking of Youtube favorites, I have had quite a few laughs this week:
Laughing Gas
White House Correspondents’ Dinner Part 1 and Part 2
Angry Girl
Bla Bla Bla music video
Couch Airbag Prank
“Fake it”
How to speak English (Charlie McDonnell one of my favorite Youtubers)
Corporate song and dance
Cat vs. Treadmill
With Child (Julian Smith one of my favorite Youtubers)
Dad life
Swedish self-cleaning toilet
Crazy commentary about Justin Beiber getting egged
Phone commercial spoof (George Watsky is awesome)
And probably more by now; so yeah, that’s been fun.

My dreams have actually been crazy nightmares that are getting annoying and scaring the shit out of me at the same time.
I used to have nightmares about Godzilla chasing me, ever since I was seven. Then I started having nightmares about a Dementor (from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) sucking the life out of me over my bed, when I was twelve or thirteen. Lately I’ve been having nightmares about ants attacking me in my bed, but that’s just because I’ve been seeing carpenter ants all over the place (floor, walls, and the CEILING). Just the other night I had a nightmare about a fire-breathing dragon chasing me; this thing was about the size of Godzilla if not bigger. It blew fire like a tornado. This really scared the shit out of me.
I have a book that interprets my dreams the old fashioned way, but every time I looked up the meaning of my dreams, I got nothing but bad news. So I’m avoiding it.

I’ve been looking for this dictionary for a while; but I went to this Scholastic book fair at the university a couple days ago and picked this up. Probably a mistake, because I’ve come across several words that are not in this dictionary. I want a dictionary that defines every word in the English language. Is there such a dictionary? I guess I’ll keep looking around. I’m trying to broaden my vocabulary, and work on my memory at the same time. Plus I like reference books. This website has everything I could ever need, and I love it. I also subscribe to their word of the day updates, and I downloaded their Blackberry app. They should come out with a book if they haven’t already.

I guess I have been cyber stalking Johnny Depp. I didn’t realize it until today. If I can’t get to where he is filming, I gather information (pictures, video, etc.) from my fellow fans on their awesome up-to-date websites. So, I never miss a thing. I have a list of fan websites I check daily, and I even get updates to my phone. I’m going to watch the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides premier live tonight, much thanks to Jerry Bruckheimer.
I’ve been too lazy to make a video of all the photos I’ve been collecting lately; but I explained this to my subscribers on Youtube, so hopefully they don’t mind, and will just check my Flickr album. It takes a lot of work to make a video and upload it to Youtube; it’s really a pain in the ass.

Lately I’ve been reading The Dog Walker by Leslie Schnur, and trying to maintain my inbox. My mom has been spamming it with articles that “I should check out”. I swear she emails me over ten articles a day. The problem is, while she’s on a computer 24hrs a day, I’m reading a book 24hrs a day. I am constantly interrupted every day by my grandmother’s calls, so I downloaded a custom ringtone for her. It’s perfect.
