Today is a really important day for me. Today is exactly the middle of the year! I have been planning to post to this for months because I notice that I have a lot to say to all different people but I forget to and can’t. So to make up for that, this post is created!
Happy birthday to my favorite kpop groups and idols!
Happy birthday to my favorite fiction characters! Meaning every single Percy Jackson character! Jason’s was yesterday!
Happy birthday to my anime baes. Makoto and Armin, this one goes out for you~
Now I’m going to greet some actual people I know. Birthday greetings to my family and friends! I love you.
This post was a lot shorter than I imagine but I’m happy I got this off my chest. I forget birthdays really easily. 2015 is half way over! Make the rest of the year special with happy memories!
Hilo, hilo! So, I am here to show you this picture that I have created out of boredom. Tada.
Now, let me explain exactly what this picture is.
It was supposed to be a regular, average girl but I needed to do something about that plain, blank shirt so I colored it orange wrote CHB and now she is a demigod. However, since I couldn’t decide on the skin color and hair, I left it blanked and colored everything else. So, to make a really good excuse of why she is super pale with white hair, let’s just go with ghost. The demigod that was stabbed and became a ghost. The one thing I’m not sure of is whether of not, the ghosts in that world where colorless of not. Haha, question of the day?
Man, I can’t believe I have to retype this because it’s hard to get back my ideas, but here it is. Oh, if you’re wondering about what I meant, it was because I accidentally clicked the back button on my computer, so everything I wrote before deleted, again. Oh technology, why do you do this to me? Anyways, here’s what this post is actually about.
So, in my English class we started doing poetry. Our assignment was to write a poem based on a picture that sparked inspiration and emotion from us. I didn’t have a particularity picture that I had in mind but I did know what I wanted to write about. Loss, loneliness and emptiness. This poem was for other children and families who miss their love ones that are in the military. Specifically towards, children and parents. I may not have a military family member but I do know the feelings that come around since my papa is a merchant marine.
So, to embarrass myself in the internet, here’s my sucky poem.
Goodbye, goodbye, there they go
Off to another world far from home
Into territories so unfamiliar
If only they could go home
Away, away, away from home
Away from their families where their hearts are own
Now in a place, far away from home
If only they could go home
Ducks, ducks, ducks, children of geese
Without them, no guidance for these
If geese are away, the ducks are afraid
Geese are their light
But now there is only darkness
Feeling lost and loneliness
For a child without a parent, is like a bed without sheets
If only they could go home
They feel like the Son of the Sea God
Left to be ignored and shunned
The bonds sometimes forgotten
But afterwards they regret their begotten
If only they could go home
Letters, calls isn’t the same
Your face, your smile still shining in my face
Without you, without them
My life is a shame
Your presence is so far but the memories still here
I miss you and all the things that we did and used to share
But there is one thing that will always be shared
And it’s the love for one another and to care
Sometimes, life isn’t what you expected
But it is what it is
If only they go home
Do you see my allusion? I had to put Percy Jackson in it because PJ is amazing! Honestly, I don’t even know why the whole ducks and geese started but it did. We have to also do an elegy which is something that I don’t know exactly what to do on. I heading towards the love route though. Hm, the so much ideas I could go for…
When I have an obsession, it literally takes over my mind and body. I spend hours and hours listening and watching interviews, music, and reading about my obsessions. In my, not very many, years of life, I had many obsessions over the years. One Direction, Percy Jackson, Girls’ Generation, EXO, anime, just to name a few. Although, some of these obsessions are still very current (EXO fighting!), I am tired of being way too passionate about it! My brain can’t focus on what I need to do because of these obsessions. If winter break wasn’t happening right now, I’m pretty sure that I would fail at school. Here are a few examples of my brain during some of my classes.
90 then is divided by 6, add 14-
BABY DONT CRY TONIGHT
wait, what was I solving again?
Sally felt this way because the author-
why did Maes have to die?!?
…the author said so?
Keep dribbling, then pass the ball to-
someone call the doctor (hums tune)…OVERDOSE
when did the other team get the ball?!?
Okay, that’s a bit of a exaggerating but somewhat true. I try to pay attention in class but my wandering mind just keeps me distracted.
Now that I think of it, I should be thankful. If my brain wasn’t so distracted in class, I would have fallen asleep so many times. So I guess I dedicate this post to my overly distracted brain. Thank you brain, for helping me not sleep.
Hilo everybody! Sorry I couldn’t post in the weekend, went camping!
Anyways, I have read the whole series of Percy Jackson and the second series Heroes of Olympus. Me, being the fangirl I am, went to see “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief,” only to be so disappointed. Nothing is like the book AT ALL.
For those of you, that have not read, seen or even heard about “The Lightning Thief” here’s a summary:
Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is on the most dangerous quest of his life. With the help of a satyr and a daughter of Athena, Percy must journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen the original weapon of mass destruction – Zeus’ master bolt. Along the way, he must face a host of mythological enemies determined to stop him. Most of all, he must come to terms with a father he has never known, and an Oracle that has warned him of betrayal by a friend.
On the Youtube trailer, there was some people that was like,”Why hate the movie because of the book?” The answer to that is simple: think of the Harry Potter books and movies. Compare to that many things were kept the same and not much was changed. Yes, some scenes were taken out but that would be a forever long movie and then your butt becomes numb form seating in that exact position for too long.
Without a plot, you have no story. Changing that plot, changes the whole story. Exactly what happened with the movie. In the book, the trio, Percy, Annabeth and Grover were sent on a quest to find who stole the Zeus’ master lightning bolt. They went with the permission of Chrion and Dionysus. However, in the movie they went outside camp without the camp directors permission and the whole point was entirely different. Yes, they went to save his mother but the quest in the movie lead to a whole different point. Instead of searching for the master bolt they travel the country for pearls that THEN lead to Hades’ domain. WHAT THE HECK?!? The whole movie was to find pearls but in the book it was later given to them.
Sometimes, age doesn’t matter. In this case, yes it does. Instead of being around 12 years old, they are all already teenagers in high school. Um, what about the prophecy? Oh, in the second movie they just happen to change the whole age thing. Apparently, just because they wanted it to fit a certain age group, they needed older actors and couldn’t stick to the original. In Harry Potter, they used the EXACT same actors(except Dumbledore). Why couldn’t they do that? I don’t know but I really wish they had.
Oh, the ending. I just hate that stupid ending. Instead of the god of war, Ares, stealing the bolt it was Hades. They changed the whole ‘villain’ of this story. Also, Grover wasn’t supposed to stay in the Underworld, instead they had to leave Sally, Percy’s mother, there.
Since not everything can be in a little category as above, here’s a list of everything else, not in order. Most of things listed down below, is just kinda the main things.
1) Percy was in a private school that was not close to his house, not in a public school a walk away.
2) It never showed the Fates which become very important in the last book(if the movies even goes this far).
3) Book Chiron and Grover pretended that they didn’t know what happened with Mrs. Dodds. Movie Chiron and Grover acted instantly on Percy’s safety and forced him to immediately go to Camp Half-Blood.
4) They know who Percy’s father is after Capture the Flag. Not before with some weird instinct that Poseidon is his father.
5) Annabeth is blonde and does not show any romantic feelings towards Percy yet.
6) Nobody in camp ever wore the Camp Half-Blood t-shirt
7) The cabins are supposed to have all the children from the same god/goddess but if you looked Annabeth and Luke were the only ones living in their cabins. Annabeth and Luke have a lot of siblings so why is it empty?
8) Demigods are not supposed to have technology because it attracts monsters. So why was Luke playing Modern Warfare? Yes, he was evil and all but didn’t anyone ever go inside? Also, why does Percy have an iPod? If his mom knows that his powerful godly smell will attar many monsters shouldn’t she know about technology attraction?
9) The winged shoes that Luke gave them. Those magical flying converse were activated when they were in the Underworld. Not when they needed to fly on top of Athena’s statue(which didn’t even happen in the book) and to fight against Luke.
10) Yes, a good action movie is good with well, action. But not everything goes like,’talk, run, FIGHT, talk again, funny scene, FIGHT, FIGHT,FIGHT’ The ending with Luke was to me just too much.
11) Oracle never appeared…will Rachel ever make an appearance?
So yup thats basically all those main things. Thanks you reading!
