05/30/14: I'm about to do it. I'm about to write again. Here I go.
01/02/13: DO YOU GUYS PARTICIPATE IN NANOWRIMO??? :O I should've joined last year - even though I've only ever found out about it last year so basically I was too late - but this year I'm going to join! They publish FREE COPIES of your novel! SO AHHHH!!! This is my chance HAHAHAHA! (Update: hahaha :( I didn't make it. But who cares; I'll do it over and over again because there's nothing else on my mind besides this)
Anyway! ABOUT ME:
Wow. It's been four years since I've updated my fanfiction account. To tell you the truth I was really sad that I had to go through such a long-time hiatus.
I was a fourth grader when I first fell in love with books. I was a high school sophomore when I was first introduced to fanfiction and writing. Now I am a college junior and I can only look back at the time when I had so much free time. Free time to read. Free time to write. When I read the past works that I've written, I can't help but cringe at all the grammatical errors and the bland style which I write in. Now I have a greater appreciation for writers all over the world and I wish to be one of them. It is my greatest desire to publish a novel one day. I freaking love coffee. It helps me get through most of my days. I still get cranky though. Well I've never been much of a morning person.
Along with my growth, I wish to find the right words to suit the things that I will write. Yes. I want - desperately want - to write more. I want to affect others the way my favorite authors affect me so much. But apparently my brain has other ideas. I write some but I don't get to finish them. And I feel horrible when I keep struggling with words and phrases as if they're rushed. So I write no more.
Fortunately I have this carving to write again. Four years of being away from the pen and paper (and keyboard because my hand is useless sometimes in writing and I already have this huge callous on my middle finger so it hurts when I write for quite a long time) made me realize that I can't live without dramatically phrasing everything.
About me of course. I wear glasses. The grade of my eyes exceeds five hundred. I blame the excessive need to read and read even when the lights are out. But it's just. I feel I need to know each story presented before me. It feels like a waste when the book is not read. I want to have a library someday with a vast collection of my favorite works. I have only 50 (physical) books. I try to collect them really, but money is such an enemy (because I don't have a lot of them).
I am taking up BS Development Communication. Right now, we're doing fucking interviews. And I can't help but feel stressed. I happen to be an introvert. I don't like small talk.
I want to see the Aurora Borealis someday. The Northern Lights. Fucking North Pole. Someday i'll get there. Someday i'll see it. Someday goddammit.
I like deep conversations.
My favorite band is Florence The Machine. My anthem is their "Never Let Me Go."
I listen to every genre of music but clearly I am biased towards indie/alternative esp. indie/alternative rock.
Bands/Singers I have to see before Death puts a veil over my face: Arctic Monkeys, Imagine Dragons, Ellie Goulding, FUN., Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, The Killers.
I've never learned to play any musical instrument but I love the piano and the way a pianist's hands would glide over the majestic keys and bring so much beauty. I can be, I guess, a tad sappy at times but I can be cynical. I am both. I am moody. I am contrasting.
Oh and I love attending concerts! I've only attended local ones but it's been pure magic! I feel like I could just stand there under the colored lights forever while the band plays on. I will be watching Paramore's concert in February 2013 so EHHHH! (Update: I've been there and oh my stars; it was more than anything my mind could have ever thought to imagine! The lights! It felt as if I've danced forever and it one hundred percent euphoria! My God. Take me back.)
BOOKS I'VE READ
I adore every genre. My most favorite one is the Hunger Games trilogy. I discovered it through a stranger who picked up the damned thing from a bookshelf and bought it from the bookstore. I envy anyone who can buy a book without looking at the price tag. I have issues with that since I have financial issues. But someone gave it to me as a gift and I have cried, laughed, and felt joy, love, fear and many things along with Katniss. I worship Suzanne Collins for writing the trilogy. Aside from Katniss and Peeta, I love the pairing of Finnick and Annie. It's too bad that their relationship was not exactly detailed so I turn to fanfiction for that. I was glad that Hunger Games would have an accompanying movie and although my friends keep saying that there were a lot of changes, I tried not to roll my eyes at them very much. I loved -LOVE - the movie regardless of what they said.
The Harry Potter series is beyond words. I could not do J.K. Rowling justice by inadequately describing what she wrote. Shamely, I have read the Deathly Hallows first before the first book =))) But better late than never.
I also love Meg Cabot and her Princess Diaries series, The Mediator series, Avalon High, Pants on Fire, Jinx, How To Be Popular. I've never read her most recent books but if I ever find them in my local bookstore, I will buy them I swear.
Merle's Door is a book about a dog written by Ted Kerasote which made me cry. It's a true story and his adventures were really tear-jerking. i've always hated it when animals die.
James Patterson's Witch and Wizard series really amuses me. But not amuses me makes-me-laugh-amuses. More like oh-dear-this-is-so-good-amuses. I've read parts of the Maximum Rider series and I've fallen in love with it too. Although I can't get the complete set.
The Ruby Oliver series is one of my all-time faves. I still haven't got Book 4 but one day, it would be made available to my country. The series is super funny and is realistic. Prom Queen Geeks is something I also enjoyed but it's more of a book that you'd read while waiting for something but it's really a treat. Books by Bob Ong make me feel proud because he is a Filipino and so am I. The one I enjoyed the most is his Kapitan Sino.
Across the Universe series is another series that you'd easily fall in love with. Right now, I'm waiting for Beth Revis to publish her third book which is entitled Shades of the Earth. It's a futuristic book which envisions what would happen if we were launched into space for Centauri-Earth, a planet not unlike Earth. It's sort of a mystery book too which you would enjoy if you like reading Sherlock Holmes and Nancy Drew books.
Hush, Hush, Crescendo and Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick is really worth reading although I must say that I am most gripped by the romance in the series.
I love Sarah Dessen and her novels especially This Lullaby.
I've only just started reading John Green's works. His Looking for Alaska was really... really something else. It spells beauty and I was just in awe after reading what he wrote. Alaska was a persona that gave an insight to some personalities that we usually overlook or misjudge. It really was an eye-opener and food for thought. It made me think things. I am looking forward to Paper Towns, An Abundance of Katherines and Fault in our Stars. Which I have no doubt will be really amazing and could blow any reader away. Fuck it. I've finally - finally - read tfios and wow. I could not stop crying when Gus told Hazel that he was dying.
"I lit up like a Christmas tree, Hazel Grace."
That line pretty much blew away my conviction to not shed any more tears over a novel. But I could not not cry. He was dying. And people die everyday. But that doesn't make the pain any less real. So yes. If you haven't read any of John Green's books please go buy yourself a copy and start turning the pages. DFTBA :) Also, if you're always on YouTube subscribe to Hank and John Green because they post lots of videos about random things that could make you laugh, make you want to be a nerdfighter or make you think about... life. *gasps*
I've just read Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky. It was really good. And I've also watched the movie with my friends and again, it was so good.
I love poetry and William Shakespeare's works are at the top of my list. Next is the poem How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways.
Though the pressure's hard to take
It's the only way I can escape
Seems a heavy choice to make
But now I am under
