Anywho, Merry Christmas!! :) I realize it's in a few days, but I'm going to be crazy busy doing stuff, so I just thought that I'd say it now. :) We've got some snow on the ground and everything's great. :) How are you guys doing? :) Going anywhere special for the holidays? :) Do any of you guys have any special Christmas traditions that you guys do? :) I hope it's an awesome, God-blessed day!!! :)
Christmas time has been one of my favorite holidays. I love all of the decorations, all of the food (CHOCOLATE?!?! JK hehe :D), most of the music ;), getting to see familiar faces and, most of, celebrating Jesus' birth. I've got some Christmas music that I'll get to play on my cello, which makes me really excited. :) (remind me about the cello later - got a story! :))
(now, where was I...?)
Ah, yes. I'm hoping to able to change my blog design on here real quickly (we'll see if that happens, and if it does, how that goes - I feel like I haven't designed a blog in forever haha ;)) with a Christmasy kind of design, which makes me happy. :)
So what have I been reading?
Yeah, that's right, not much. =P
(and that doesn't include Bible reading, because I try to read my Bible every day.)
In the Bible, I've been reading in Isaiah. You know like that famous passage about a voice calling from the wilderness? I finally got to that part. It's really cool to think that you're reading a prophecy and then you see it fulfilled later! I just think that that's really awesome. :)
This is kind of random, but I'm pretty sure I promised something. And you know what that is? A review on How to Train Your Dragon 2. That would usually go on Dragonmaster, but whatever, I'm on here. :) This probably won't be "full length", but I'll write it anyway. And the good news? Most of us have probably watched it by now!! Yay!! aka here come the spoilers. :)
I thought that the movie was pretty good overall, but then we get to the part that I'm sure you're thinking of since I just started saying this part of the sentence. Yup. Stoick's death. That was just pretty much... *sniff sniff* awful. Especially since he'd just reunited with his wife!!!! I just couldn't figure out why on earth they'd want to kill off Stoick in the first place.
Because the actor wanted to quit? They could've made him mute. (I mean, if just Hiccup's leg can get burned off and he doesn't die in the huge explosion of fire, can't just Stoick's voice get blown away?? I mean, makes sense, right?) (and plus, these movies are pretty popular. I couldn't really figure out why the actor would want to quit.) Something happened to injure the real actor? Could've made him mute. They just wanted to kill him because of the emotional reaction? I seriously don't know why. It made me like the movie wayyyyyy less. :(
I don't know. But I liked the movie pretty well other then Stoick getting killed. What about you guys? Thoughts?
You probably noticed that this is post is called "i. random." Yup. That's because it's a new series of posts (like recap) entitled "random" - when there's simply too much content to pick a topic!! YAY!! :) Good news, right? ;)
Oh, right! Cello. So guess what? I got to play "Love is an Open Door" (from Frozen) on the cello! It was awesome. :) I had so much fun. :) I got to use my Frozen piano book, and then I just played on the bottom level. (in the bass clef) I'm having more opportunities to play the cello, which I think is really awesome. :) I'm excited. :)
Good news! I think I found something that kind of puts a clincher on the beginning of a new series. (and it "kind of" has a magical world in it. I might tell you guys more when I get more specifics.) And I have another story idea that I'll have to pan out. (because I have an idea, I just need a story to go along with it. :))
I'm getting the writing bug just thinking about all of this stuff, so I'll see you guys later! :) Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! :)
P.S. Here's some holiday awesomeness from me to you. :)
