This is one book I can think of that I wouldn’t mind rereading again, and I did a few times. Speak portraits a young girl dealing with rape, recovery, and confession. Melinda reminded me of myself during my first year of high school. I was the outcast. I did not socialize, and kept my friends to a minimum of 1-3. I was the quiet girl. I really enjoyed this book for the simple reason that it’s written in a form of a diary and easy for me to stay focus in. (I have the shortest attention spam when it comes to reading…) A film was developed based on this novel, starring Kristen Stewart. She portrayed Melinda real well in the movie.
Another novel I would not mind rereading would be “The Help“.
The Help tells a story about African American maids working in white households in Mississippi during the 1960′s Civil Right’s Movement. This novel explores the idea of overcoming long-standing barriers in customs. Kathryn Stockett added a bit of humor into this story to lighten up the plot, and I really enjoyed that. The film adaption was done great as well, and I cannot count how many times I’ve re-watched it.

I can honestly say that I’m a fan of all four seasons, so when it comes down to choosing a favorite… it’s a tough choice. Winter is alright..winter is..pretty! I enjoy the season of winter briefly in the hopes for some snow; specifically a white Christmas! As far as the winter degrees, not so much. I get sick easily in the chilly weather, and I hate not being able to be active outdoors due to nasty/freezing temperatures. Autumn is amazing! There could not be a season more perfect than the orange scenery of fall, and the cool breeze that is not too cold nor too humid; those two elements of this season lies in perfect harmony with one another. I simply LOVE autumn. <3 Summer is great! What’s more fun than a break from school, the beach/lake, fireworks, late nights, grill-outs, and so much more? As much as I’m in love with Autumn, I’m dying for summer to arrive. I love the warm weather! I love it when the sun doesn’t set till roughly after 8pm. I love the fact that I won’t have to worry about catching a cold in the hot weather. I do not enjoy the triple digit degrees weather however. 70-82 degrees would be perfect for me ideally. The season of summer will be here in the blink of an eye! As for spring…spring is pretty! Spring and I share the love for one color…: Green! Green is such a beautiful color, and there’s no other color on earth that I cherish more than green. Spring is also the start of nice weather, and flowers/plants!
As it comes down to it… my favorite season(s) are narrowed down to Autumn and Summer. The sweetest of the year! Below is a photograph I took on a trip I took to Turner Falls, OK last November. This perfectly displays my love for the season of fall.
When this movie was first released in theaters, all my friends praised it endlessly and urged me to watch it. I finally rented one at redbox last week, and after finishing it up, I wasn’t quite impressed until I looked up some of the songs on youtube and listened to them several times before I finally fell in love with this movie. Pitch Perfect Soundtrack Full <— Give it a shot!
As much as I’m in love with the color green, I’m going to have to pass up on posting a picture containing it. The blue-filled photo above is one I manage to capture at a Bay in Gulf Breeze Florida. The blue in this photo makes the scene seem peaceful.
My dog Gus is spoiled rotten… He gets treats from that adorable expression he always carries in his little eyes, or he’ll beg for them. The king will scratch on my legs and whine until I get up from the couch to grab him a cookie. Today I had a smart idea to take him on a ride, and bought him a junior roast beef from Arby’s. (short employments from the time of May 2012 to July 2012) That made Gus’s day…but he was still hungry for more when I bought home boneless wings from work tonight. What a spoiled dog!!
Regardless he’s still my pretty doggeh. I love you Gusy baby <33
