Emo Blog Redux

I just watched Eagle Eye, and now I'm torn. On the one hand, it would be super-exciting to be part of a secret mission and not know your next move until you read it on a random marquee. On the other hand, I'm really glad it's never happened to me. On the theoretical third hand, I think I'm starting to like Shia LeBeouf again. I do miss Louis Stevens, though.

I'm about to finish my third book of the summer. After The Bermudez Triangle, I moved on to Miley Cyrus: Miles To Go. I was curious!!! Lolz. Don't hate. I bought it used on Amazon. I actually enjoyed it. I might give it to my currently nonexistent little girl someday. You know, to get her through her awful preteen years and inspire her to follow her dreams and such. And finally, as you know, I picked up Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger, which is always great. Next I'm thinking The Book Thief, maybe?

I keep slowing myself down by picking up Harry, A History, reading a little, and putting it down again. It's a great book, but it's taking me forever to get through it. Maybe it's because I'm so involved in Harry Potter already that rehashing it all is mentally exhausting.

I want to thank reader Kristen for her words of encouragement on my emo blog post from last week. I just love the online community. When no one IRL makes me feel special, people online will. YouTube will. People watch my videos. People leave comments. Even when I get ignorant hater comments, as infuriating as they are, deep down I still appreciate them (way, way, WAY deep down). Someone can click on my video, watch it for 10 seconds, hate it, and then click away. But you know what? They sought me out. They intentionally clicked on my video to hear what I have to say, hoping to be entertained. I may not always deliver, but I try. And if I get an awful comment, I try to think, "Hey, at least I'm not being ignored."

That's why I love YouTube. And, of course, all of you. Muchos gracias! :-)

  1. You're life will not be complete until you read The Book Theif. Go read it and then blog about how brilliant it is. :)

  2. That is a *great* attitude to have. :)
