i want one!

My friend posted this link on facebook and it appeared in my news feed.
 How amazing is this!

I really want one of these.

Let's just say I'm a pretty big fan of the Hunger Games series.
I'm not obsessed.
But I like/love it to a healthy extent.
All the charms on this bracelet represent something or other from this series, and I would love to wear it, basically all the time.

If you do not know what the Hunger Games series is about.
You should go find out.
If you have never heard of the Hunger Games series.
You must live in a hole.
If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend you do.

Did I mention I want this bracelet?

I haven't written on this blog for quite a while.

I have excuses.

Nanowrimo being the bigest.
I wrote 50,000 words.
Somehow I did it. I'm still not sure how.

I managed to crank out enough words in time, in the midst of all my extra things.
He's a point form list of what my November looked like:

  • 6 public performances of a local youth theatre's Romeo and Juliet(I was neither Romeo, or Juliet, but I would like to think that I pulled off a pretty decent Sampson and that I bit my thumb with as much gusto as humanly possible).
  • 3 toured perforamnces at various schools around the area.
  • Sang in 2 choirs.
  • Performed and rehearsed with a local glee club.
  • Read and sang in a staged reading of an original play, written by a local playright/actor.
  • Practiced for my flute, piano and voice lessons.
  • Tried to keep up with my on-line math course.
  • And of course, trying to survive a house full of younger siblings.
All in all... I wasn't that busy at all, what was I talking about.

I never had a plot line, or anything for my story, so each word and plot twist was an adventure, and I had no idea what was going to happen next.
Personally I think that's the best part of nanowrimo.
Besides, pre-planning is cheating.
But that's just me.

I didn't have much of a chance to read over the month, so I don't have too much to review right now.
But hopefully I'll get a few reviews up soon.

I'm currently reading The Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare.
Can I just say that I am LOVING it.
