Well Today Was Interesting

a lot of things happened today…

first: I woke up at around 2 in the morning because I fell asleep at around 6pm last night and so I went online because I cannot sleep anymore and they announced about Pope Francis I! I watched a livestream of the announcement (kind of) and it was actually nice. I then proceeded to DIY a skirt from scratch and it was a success! I now have a skirt and I wore a skirt out  for the first time today (besides our uniform).

second: I went to Chryss’ house. I was late again. it was really bad. we had fun though and we baked cupcakes and it was fun. hanging out with mah friends is always the best!!

third: it was our class gathering with our “brother section” and it was fun and stuff but it got really emotional towards the end…… I think it’s still getting emotional right now……. things got weird but I met new people but still it was weird…….. in a bad and good way…… does that make sense?

Weird Thoughts At 3 In The Morning

This is the history of water on the Planet Mars according to NASA

(b.y.a. = Billion Years Ago)

And I thought………

What if humans were originally from Mars but global warming or something like that happened and people found out that Earth is somewhat like Mars too so everyone moved to Earth and then Mars dried up and then it turned into the red planet now and our ancestors are just keeping everything a secret

Another [year] with the same kids, another [year] with the same drinks

Today was the first day of my junior year, a.k.a. the year that will decide where I might study college. It was an OK day… nothing g r e a t really happened but it wasn’t that bad either. I’m glad I saw most, if not all, of my close friends though.

Soooo many changes were implemented in our school this year, like 30 minutes (to 1 hour) was added to our school hours and we’re trimester now. We also have a small coffee vending machine now!!!! YAY!!!!!!! I am a coffee person and I thank God that they put one. It’s like 10 pesos per cup and sure it’s small but it’s actually an OK coffee considering it’s 10 pesos… We also have a foreign language class and… we still don’t know where we’re gonna be assigned…. I hope they’ll announce it already to end the suspense 😦

Today honestly didn’t feel like it was our first day. I am in class III – 13, and it’s like classes already started. s i g h.

Junior year will be really hectic and really busy. Our principal already said so. Wish me luck! 😦

P.S. I might not be posting that much because of school but I will try my best to post something at least once a week! (especially D.I.Y.’s because that’s like me new favourite past time hahaha!)

The Goddess Test

Image

Every girl who has taken the test has failed. 

Now it’s Kate’s turn.

It’s always been just Kate and her mom–and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate’s going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won’t live past the fall. 

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld–and if she accepts his bargain, he’ll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests. 

Kate is sure he’s crazy–until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she’ll become Henry’s future bride, and a goddess. 

If she fails…

Summer started almost 3 weeks ago and I’ve only read 5 books… It was disappointing in my side because I usually read more than that and well, I’m not used to going for a long time without a new book to read. So when I went to my friend’s house 3 days ago, I asked if I can borrow a book because I was about to die because of boredom. The Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter is the book she handed to me! We both have this fascination with Greek mythology so I totally got why she made me read this.

When I got home, I started to read it. At first I thought this will be another love story with a mix of Greek mythology…. and well, I was right. But not in the “another love story” part. The Goddess Interrupted took a new turn in Greek mythology. It wasn’t your typical Greek mythology book because first of all, the gods and goddesses does not go by their Greek or Roman names. It is also set in Eden in Michigan (SPOILERS!) it does not exist by the way (SPOILERS!) definitely not your typical book either cause most of the books out there is set in New York or some other bigger city.

This book is about Hades (drop-dead gorgeous Henry), looking for a new “wife” because Persephone left him. Eleven girls tried to take the test already but if they didn’t fail, they were murdered by someone in the manor. Kate is the twelfth and is the last hope of Henry and if she still fails, Henry will ‘fade’ (that’s like dying for the gods). Kate has to pass 7 tests in order to pass, and by passing that means she will become immortal and be the wife of Henry. Honestly, I found Kate weird…. If she thought the Eden Manor and everything Henry was saying wasn’t true, then I don’t understand why she still went there and agreed to stay for 6 whole months…. although eventually she started to believe because Henry was able to keep his side of the bargain. I commend Aimee Carter for not writing “another love story” because of all the twists and turns in The Goddess Interrupted.

I would recommend this book to those people who likes Greek Mythology. Also to those who likes to read unusual love stories.
