Well, I went to the midnight premiere of The Hunger Games last night with several of my friends. And my head exploded.


That’s all.

Oi, just wanted to say something. I recently decided to start another blog to post all things Doctor Who-related. So, just if you are interested: This is just to share my love of Doctor Who. CAUSE IT’S SO AWESOME.


We Are Young February 21, 2012

I haven’t written anything in ages! Quite sorry. So, the reason I’m writing today is that you need to know about a song, similar to the post I wrote about Dog Days Are Over. The song today: We Are Young, by Fun. featuring Janelle Monae. I had seen the name of the song before, on the Top Lists playlist on Spotify,  but had never actually heard it. So I decided to listen to it. And I was in love. The very first time listening to it, I was almost in awe; the song starts out rather quiet and toned-down, but soon turns into this amazing, inspiring sound. It’s powerful, the type of song one might hear at the end of an awesome film. It makes me feel happy and encouraged, rather the same way that Shake It Out (by Florence + the Machine) does.

I could (and I do!) sit at my computer with my headphones in, the sound turned up all the way, and listen to We Are Young over and over again. It’s THAT good.

So. Go listen to it. And tell me what you think!

Tonight we are young

So let’s set the world on fire

We can burn brighter than the sun


Homeschoolers Know How to Party October 30, 2011

So, yeah, last night was one of the best nights of my life.

One of my school friends hosted a Halloween-ish party. I say
‘ish’ because it wasn’t really celebrating Halloween, but it was really near
and we dressed up and stuff. And my gosh…we danced. And danced. And danced. So much epic music.

And this is how we dance. Lots of jumping around, arm-waving, hair-swinging and such. I had no idea what I was doing most of the time, and I’m sure I looked a little strange at times. But I don’t care.

Eventually someone put on Journey and we all sang Don’t Stop Believin’ at the top of our lungs. Also, one of my friends requested Lady Gaga’s Poker Face, and we had a blast dancing and singing along to that. The party started around 7, and we were still dancing, a lot, at 10:30. And then our tired little legs started to get sore from jumping around so much. But then the music started up again, and we were back at it. We eventually collapsed in the car to go home at 11:30. So sore. So, so sore. But so happy and elated, because of the amazing party. Best living room party EVER. EVERRRR. And, pretty much, I have the best friends. EVER.

And we really know how to dance.

I really love when you hear a song, and you’ve only heard it a few times, and suddenly realize how wonderful and amazing that song is. This happened to me with a song on my Pandora playlist.

The [quite amazing] song was Dog Days Are Over by Florence + the Machine. I had only heard it once or twice before, when it started playing on Pandora again. I realized then what a beautiful song it was. It was a happy song. A breathtaking song. I wasn’t doing anything, so I just listened, hard. I stayed completely silent so as to preserve the whole sound of it in my mind. The lyrics were on the page, so I stared at them and willed myself to memorize them. Eventually, I could sing the whole song to myself. (I actually could belt it out quite loud if I was home alone for long enough.)

I think I loved this song so much at first because, besides being wonderful, I was only able to hear it every so often (since it was on Pandora). Although, I did decide recently that I loved Dog Days Are Over so much that I just had to buy it. But, I know I’ll still love it as much as I did before. (:

[this is just me, telling the world (or maybe a slightly smaller group) that I love this song, and that other people need to listen to it. kaybye.]


The dog days are over,

the dog days are gone,

the horses are coming,

so you better run.

Hello, there. I’m Anne. I’m a highschooler who loves photography, Harry Potter, Parks and Recreation, and Doctor Who. I have extremely curly hair which I get extremely frustrated with sometimes. I love my cats, and musicals, too. I started a blog because I thought’d it be cool, and I wanted to see if my life was really actually interesting at all. Also, I kinda got tired of Facebook and Flickr for a while. ;)

So, I’m going to try to actually keep with writing on this thing. We’ll just see how that turns out. :)
