Jason Statham is one BAMF...

Today, something happened to me that, with much confidence, I can easily say has never happened to me before.

My mom, grandma, and I were on our way back from a shopping day in Peoria (I only went for the books) and we were passing a guy, in a black car,wearing sunglasses, with his window down. As I was in the backseat, I, admittedly, stared at him. I was thinking how much he looked like Jason Statham. Right when I was wondering if he could tell whether or not I was watching him, even with the tinted window, his head jerked and he looked right at me. And it wasn't any "Oh, I'm just going to casually look at the car passing me to see what type it is"-look. It was a full blown "Who the eff is staring at me?!"-look. I mean, for a split second I seriously thought he was Jason Statham as one of his awesome action characters and his mission was to kill me.

Despite my irrational fears, I continued staring back at him until we were completely past him. And, before you ask, my wonderful readers, I am fine, he did not speed up to catch up to us, nor did he pull an epic car chase with us. Unfortunately. I think I rather would have enjoyed seeing how my mom would handle that.

Besides that one time I was chased by a dog bent on killing me (story for another time), I think that could have been one of the scariest freaking things to ever happen to me, ever. Hopefully I won't have a repeat anytime soon. Because those sunglasses? Added to the creepiness as much as the b-aness.


Random Thought: Anybody read any books by Maggie Stiefvater? I got a book by her today. So far it's good, but I was wondering what you guys thought of her?

Deep thoughts

"Everything happens for a reason. Every bad decision we make, every crummy thing that's happened to us is all to get us where we need to be. And, in the end, as long as we're happy with the path we've ended up on, isn't that all that matters?"

Just something I came up with last night. In my mind, at least, it rings some sort of truth.
I mean, with complete and total honesty, can you say that you would still be who you are today if you hadn't made all those horrible choices you know you've made? Or had those terrible things happen to you? Maybe they still are, I don't know.

What I DO know is, no matter how bad the experience or choice they all help us grow as people. I know if I hadn't made the mistakes I've made in the past, I wouldn't be who I am. I still make some mistakes, but I try to learn from them and move on. That's really all you can do, isn't it? In the end, you can't change what has happened, you can only change what WILL happen. Only you control your future, so take the reigns and decide where you're headed.

Whether that has to deal with short term or long term, career choices or school decisions, whether you want to buy that book or check it out from the library, instead. It's all up to you.
So, tonight, I implore you to choose your path. Where it's going is entirely up to you. Make bad choices, learn from them, then, hopefully, make some good choices. Get on your path, and walk down it like it's a freaking runway!

Random Thought: Any of you seen "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" yet? What did you like about it? What didn't you like about it? I'm happy to say that I liked it enough to go twice, and thoroughly enjoyed it both times.

Do you, like most people, believe that dreams are our subconscious desires put before our eyes? When you have a nightmare, do you believe it's from a fear that you have, and perhaps didn't know about? When you have a romantic dreams, do you believe it comes from missing your significant other? Or just those romantic moments you once had with he/she? Do you ever look back at your dream over the day, and think differently about it after a few hours? It's quite strange how much your opinion can change in the span of one day. Or how much you can forget in one day, especially when it was foggy to begin with.

Dreams can be the most complex things we face...or the most simplistic. They can be utterly terrifying...or simply silly. Whatever dreams we have, they are our own and nobody else's. Out of all the dreams that I've had, I only remember a select number of them, I mean, I'm lucky if I remember a dream for the rest of the day, let alone after that.

Why am I suddenly talking about dreams? Last night I had a very...different, and very personal, dream, andas such I will not be talking about it in this blog. Just felt like discussing dreams with you folks, or as it is, folk.

So, what are some dreams you've had, that you remember? Good dreams? Bad dreams? Dreams that are neither good nor bad, yet still memorable? Hmmm?

Rainy Day...

It is officially storming out. Thunder, Lightning(not much mind you), and Rain. Yet, I can see some sun poking through. What's this? What's this? A sunny thunderstorm? Not something you see everyday.....So, when the storm started to get bad, and the t.v. wasn't working, can you guess what I decided to do? Yup, I'm am now rewatching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (my second favorite) and am in full Viktor-fan-girl mode. I believe I can hear the sounds of t.v. from downstairs though, so maybe the satellite came back on? Who knows? Now that I'm already watching my movie, there are many doubts as to whether I will go back to television (especially considering the show I was watching is already over). Although at eight o'clock I'll probably turn it back on to watch the new episode of Total Drama World Tour. Exciting, right?

Oh look, the sun is now shining, no more rain, and I barely hear the after-rumbles of the thunder. Looks like I'll get to watch Total Drama after all. Oh well, I am now off to drool over the Bulgarian hunkiness that is Viktor Krum (and the sexy sulliness that is Severus Snape). Hope you all enjoy the rest of your evenings.

Random thought: Can you imagine going through what Neville had to go through with his parents? And then watch Mad-eye Moody (Barty Crouch Jr. in diguise) do the same thing to that spider? I have no idea how he handles it.

Pigfarts, Pigfarts, here I come...

Pigfarts, Pigfarts, yum, yum, yum..

I have just recently realized how incredibly and incurably obsessed with Harry Potter I truly am. Don't believe me? I have all the books in hardback, and 1-6 in paperback. I also own Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. As well as a 2010 calendar and a very nice journal (that i haven't written in because i don't find any of my petty teenager problems worthy of the amazing wonderfulness that is that journal). I have a Dumbledore's army poster and a poster of the cover of the seventh book. I own all six movies and a very (VERY) nice Slytherin pen, that I have barely written with, because, again, it's just too special to use. Not enough for you? I've seen A Very Potter Musical (you now understand my title). Not only have I seen it, but I have nearly all of the songs memorized, and I am excitedly waiting for A Very Potter Sequel to reach Youtube. One of my favorite songs of all time is Potions Yesterday by Draco and the Malfoys.

But even out of all of these things, I think that the thing that probably makes me the most is that on August 2nd I will be leaving for Orlando, Florida to go visit Universal Studios. That's right, all you Harry Potter nerds, be jealous, for I get to go to the Wonderful World of Harry Potter!!!!

...So, yes, I just wasted a blog to have an epic lead up to telling you guys my most amazing news...

Random Thought: is probably THE singlemost AMAZING game in the ENTIRE world

Oh! Random Thought 2!: I forgot to mention in my semi-rant that awhile ago I was reading a manga and the main guy told the main girl (his love interest) not to look away when he had to kill another guy. She didn't look away. As I was reading it all I could think was..."Cool, now she can see thestrals!"...Just thought that was relevant...oh and I love reading stories on :) Okay, now I'm done

Mama, we're all gonna die...

I seriously think My Chemical Romance is therapy for the sooouuuuuullllll.
I hadn't realized how long it's been since I've seriously listened to these I was missing now it's about 3:30 in the morning and I'm going to rock out to MCR, and I'm gonna enjoy it. Seriously, have you guys listened to this band??? They are AMAZING!!!!! I don't know what it is, but i LOVE them! When people ask what is my favorite band, I automatically say MCR, don't even question it. I mostly listen to their album The Black Parade, which is AMAZING. Gerard Way's vocals are, in my opinion, unrivaled, completely and totally unrivaled.

My ex-boyfriend and I started talking tonight...which was..nice. It was good to be able to talk to him as a friend again. It's been...MONTHS since the last time we have. Something tells me he and I aren't QUITE in the same place, but it's close enough that we can build a bridge over the gap, unlike a few months ago, when I defriended him on facebook because I just couldn't handle all of his statuses about his new girlfriend. It doesn't bug me like it used to. I mean, I still get that initial reaction every time I see his name, and what not, but it doesn't last very long. So, anyway, like I said, I'm really glad he and I are talking again (we're friends on facebook again). Even if he's not my boyfriend anymore, he's still a pretty big part of my life, and he just happened to take that chunk with him when he stepped away for awhile.

Don't you hate being emotional??? Sometimes, I definitely do, too.

Random thought: Anybody else here a fan of Glee??? How about...Puckleberry??? (Rachel/Puck). Let me know how ya feel, even if you're a Fachel (finn/Rachel) fan!!!
