Books I Wouldn’t Survive Without: POST TWO

Hi, folks.

Next book(s) on my list(which, by the way, is in no particular order) is *drumroll and off-key fanfare* OKAY, OKAY! *holds ears* It’s the Divergent series .

Divergent showed me so much about forced life, along with other books. It showed how to go about forgiveness, and how to live selflessly. Well, I can’t say I do, but Veronica Roth tried.

Back on task.

Divergent taught how to accept myself and others.

What Abnegation Taught Me:

  • To think of others first
  • To live as simply as your mind can bear it
  • Gray is not boring

What Amity Taught Me:

  • Listen first to their story.
  • Kindness is irreplaceable virtue.

What Candor Taught Me:

  • The truth can protect. The truth can hurt. But the truth is better than lies.
  • Think of what you mean. Say what you mean, not a variation.

What Dauntless Taught Me:

  • Go for it.
  • Stand up for your friends.

What Erudite Taught Me:

  • Knowledge can be powerful.
  • Enlightenment is as close as you can get to understanding.

Oh, and I’m an Erudite. A good one. Not a LET’S GO NUTS FOR KNOWLEDGE AND DESTROY THE WORLD Erudite. In the war I would’ve sided with Amar, Tris, Christina, Tobias, Uriah etc.

“Moths,” repeats Will. “You’re afraid of moths?”

“Not just a cloud of moths,” she says, “like…a swarm of them. Everywhere. All those wings and legs and…” She shudders and shakes her head.

“Terrifying,” Will says with mock seriousness. “That’s my girl. Tough as cotton balls.”

“Oh, Shut up.”

From Good to Worse

Have you ever had one of these days?

I finished my book(LOONG) in the morning, make cookies for a graduation, and then my mother burns them because she tells me that the parchment paper is for the oven. It’s for the microwave.

Now we’re buying cookies. I have NEVER bought cookies in my life. NEVER. I honestly don’t care what they think, but I care what I think. And I’m pretty disappointed in myself.

No, it’s too late to whip up another batch.

Thanks for listening.

“Don’t be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
Brian Jacques, Taggerung

Softball and Baseball

Hello, patient people.

So, today’s topic: Softball and Baseball.

Girls should be allowed to play baseball. I mean, really, our ancestors did all the household chores and we’re not supposed to be able to see a smaller ball? Come on.

It’s sorta sexist if you ask me. Women can do anything that men can do. It may take some work because, well, women are(USUALLY) slimmer and naturally less muscular than men. But if we work we can do anything that men can do.

The differences between softball and baseball are as follows:

  1. Softball: The pitcher throws underhand. Baseball: The pitcher may throw overhand, underhand, or sidearm.
  2. Softball: Pitcher is closer to the plate. Baseball: Pitcher is farther away.
  3. Softball: The bases are closer together and closer to home plate. Baseball: Guess. The bases are farther apart and farther away.
  4. Softball: HUGE ball. Bigger than the baseballs by about 3 inches. It also weighs less, this by about 1.25 ounces.

I stand by my original standpoint. If the girls want to play baseball, let ’em play baseball.

Hello world!

If there’s anyone there, reading this, hi!

If not, hello again Infinite Cyber Abyss. *sighs*

Okay, I’ll just pretend someone’s reading this.

When I say nerd, I mean know-it-all, nose in book nerd. Not overalls/plaid skirt nerd. I’m not that weird. But close. The Coolio quote “I used to walk to school with my nose buried in a book”? That describes me.

So, if you are reading this, thank you for getting this far.

I am not friendlesss. I just…don’t have any real close friends, except maybe one.

THIS BLOG WILL INCLUDE:

  • Rants
  • Talks about books that barely make sense
  • Things about my life(with code names)

…and more…
