Awkward (TIA)

So I have been currently waiting forever and a day for the the Season 2 premiere of Awkward! Who hasn't? Season One was amazing and I now can't wait for more.

If you do not know what Awkward is, I shake my head at you. Its probably one of the best television shows that is currently on the air. The show is very comedic, very intriguing, and there is some, I mean a lot of, great drama. Furthermore,  I have learned some great new lingo like TIA (This Is Awkward) and DTR (Determine the Relationship). I love using these terms around people because I feel as if the only people who understand them are people who watch Awkward. Its kind of like our own little language!

People always say that they wish they were a part of a books they read. They love the stories and find a new reality that sparks their interest. I feel the same way when it comes to books. The details, characters, plot, and setting all make me want to be a part of the story line. Here are ten literary characters/books I would like to go on an adventure with:

Rory Gilmore Challenge

So I was watching Gilmore Girls today...yeah I am a guy and I like Gilmore Girls. I love Rory and Lorelai Gilmore's family relationship and their wit. Well, the weird thing today is that my sister sent me a listing of all of the books that Rory Gilmore reads throughout the show. I have added the list but I have copied it from this Book Club Forum.

Now I am going to try to attempt, and I say attempt, to start reading all the books on Rory's list. Kind of excited but we will see how it goes! I will highlight the ones I have read and tell you when I read them.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Review)

Today, the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter movie came out. As a history graduate student, I wondered how this movie was going to be made and how the history of the Civil War would be described. Although the movie left out a couple of things like Mary Todd being crazy, that Lincoln had two children, and Lincoln’s hatred for his father, the movie was still pretty awesome. I know, I know, you can’t have everything you want in a movie, but its history, lol!

Small Adventures Taken at the Beginning of Summer

This will probably be a short post but I thought I would add some info about some of my little adventures. Well this summer has been pretty good. I have had a lot of free time and need to be studying for the GRE soon and studying German.

Veronica Mars Series

Veronica Mars, the series, aired on television when I was a junior in high school. The show was perfect because she was a junior in high school as well, so I decided to watch it. I fell in love with the series when the pilot ran. Although her high school was nothing like mine, I came from a public Kentucky school that had a middle class and did not have the same drama that Neptune High had, I continued to watch the amazing series. In high school, I loved going to basketball games with my friends, but if they said lets go on a Tuesday night, I would always acted sick so I could watch the show. Anyway, I continued to watch the show until its cancellation in 2006(a horrible call by the CW).

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I read the book The Perks of Being a WallFlower about six years ago before I went to college. It was given to me by my sister who told me that I would really enjoy it. I would never classify myself as a wallflower and was like nah I won't find this book interesting. Boy was I wrong. This book was amazing. The characters, the drama, the emotion, and storyline makes this book one of my all time favorite books that I have ever read.

In the story, which is told in letters, there is a young boy named Charlie who is just entering high school. He is kind of clueless and doesn't have any friends. Although true, he is very inteligent. And wants to be a writer.

Later in the story he meets two siblings (step brother and sister) named Sam and Patrick. They become his best friends and help him learn and experience the world: through providing knowledge and life experiences.

I don't want to give the story away but the end is very emotional and even though some people may say they knew it was coming, I did not. I was completely shocked. I believe you be surprised as well.
