Katniss and Peeta

Warning: This will be a long post!

First of all, I am finally in reach of my halfterm holidays!!! So happy, I am really starting to feel the pressure of Year 11 and having to be all responsible and grown up even if you don't want to be...  Holidays always mean reports and as far as mine goes I am really immensely happy, a string of As and Bs and even an A* (in Art). I am still wondering how i got out of the C range in subjects like French (Here we go again,... you know my hatred for these lessons!) or PE (I have NO idea what I did to convince them I was good a Badminton.....). I overstood parents evening without to many humiliating incidents, oh execpt for walking around with a big blob of paint on my face because i had stayed in school to finish my Art project, and no one bothered to tell me this.
Have just come home from an exhausting dance lesson, and I am ALMOST able to do the splits..! Almost! Just about 10 - 15cms missinggg... YAY yay YAY!!
I missed my last Ballroom lesson because there was a formal Debutant's Ball in a big Hotel in Lisbon and my teacher had to attend there... I was in fact invited too, but I found, as allready said, my scedule is fricking tight and Saturday is the one day to relax a little... I know it's a missed opportunity but I still have next year and I don't fell all that bad about not having to stand around in highheels while dancing with abnormally bad partners all night... :)
It started RAINING here..... Nooooo autumn go awayyy, and after half term I am going to have to wear my tie again. Rain also means that i seldomly can go surf... the last time i've been seems ages ago... the weather is horrible and I know that most people would shrouder at the idea if penetrating the freezing Atlantic when there is freezing weather anyways, but with my wetsuit dont think that should be much of a problem.. It's the fact that the bad weather produces ''low quality'' and/or too big waves for my level of capability.
Book news: I recently read a couple of very, very good books, which will definightly go down for my favourites!
The Power of Six - sequel to I am Number Four (by ''Pittacus Lore'') and ending in ahorrible cliffhanger. Now I have to wait another year to read the next one, Thr Rise of Nine. The books play on Earth at around this time, and is about John and in this book in particular his fellow alien Six have to fight against the opposing alien race trying to destroy Earth. There natturally is a romance involved... which escalated into a love triangle!!! All I can say is: I hope Six getts the guy. If you are also low on The Lorien Leagcies stories you should check out the new ebook  The Lost Files: Six's Legacy, haven't read it yet myself but I hope to soon!
Then I started reading The Hunger Games Triology (Suzanne Collins) and I am currently on book 3. I am absolutely obsessed witht he book and some of the funnest thing about them is actually that my two best friends  also read them and we are all fighting who ''the best'' guy in the series is... For me it's deffinightly Peeta but i can see the appeal of Gale and Finnik too :) I love Peeta because of the sweetness and protectiveness of him towards Katniss, also I hate/loce the way she really loves him but doesn't know thiss herself... M other friend was shocked when she found uot I was reading a ''blood-and-gore'' book but the HG's are so much more than that. I hate the principle of a tv-show like that because that is just inhumane and gross, but in this book it does not have such a frightening effect as it could have.
Actually, it as clear to anyone who knows me well that I would love these books, as they do reseble my still favourite book of all times Gracelling by Kristin Cashore.

Further more.... I convinced my Mom to be able to use her iPod (which she never uses [it doesn't even have music on it]) and I am now preparing it for myself... This means transferring my entrie online song libary onto my iTunes.... I promise myself to do at least one letter of the alphabet's worth in artists a day... It doesn't work most of the time though..... All I can say is ''Bye-bye Grooveshark and hello iPod''... Grooveshark was great though, I really like it... might still use it occasionally in remebrance of the good old days....
I promised this was going to be a long post... and I am now tired (not tired enough to not read a few more chapters though ;P)
Soooo, night! X
