february wrap up

February was a thing.


BEST BOOKS READ:

A Curse So Dark and Lonely: By Brigid Kemmerer

The Silver Chair by C S Lewis


WRITING:

I’ve been working on many projects. Trying to rewrite FTIDKTT/Otherworldly YET AGAIN. If you have any suggestions I would be forever grateful.

 

Also Zenith of the Sea is… somewhere. 102 pages… And I’m almost done with all the plot I had planned. Ugh.

 

I’m trying to add a second POV but it’s not working very well.

AND I’m planning a Palpatine short story. I did some research. AND APPARENTLY, THE WHOLE DARTH PLAGUEIS THING HAPPENED DURING THE EVENTS OF THE PHANTOM MENACE? AND SO WHEN PALPY SAYS “IT’S A SITH LEGEND” HE’S JUST BEING DRAMATIC BECAUSE ONLY THREE SITH WERE A THING FROM THE TIME PLAGUEIS DIED AND WHEN PALPY TOLD ANI THE STORY: DARTH MAUL, TYRANUS, AND OBVIOUSLY, SIDIOUS. AND I GUESS WE COULD COUNT GENERAL GRIEVOUS, BUT HE’S NOT A SITH BC HE DOESN’T USE THE FORCE, BUT HE WAS TRAINED BY DOOKU. SO ONLY FOUR-FIVE SITH HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR THE STORY, SO THERE’S NO WAY IT’S A LEGEND.

dicitonary.com definition: a nonhistorical or unverifiable story handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted as historical.

I mean, it’s TECHNICALLY a legend, I guess, but IT’S NOT.

I’m sorry but I always imagined Palpy being a young boi (like Ani) and killing his master, which is 66x cooler, but NOOooOOoooOOooOO he was an oldish man when he did it, which isn’t quite as impressive. No offense.

Also I don’t condone murder. I’m just upset Palpy didn’t dEw iT impressively. (I sound like such a bad person omjg)


SONGS:

-God Help the Outcasts from The Hunchback of Notre Dame

-Anthem of Evil by John Williams

-Stalker by Tim Hawkins


MOVIES:

-High School Musical 2

-Dr Strange

-Robin Hood

-Half of Zootopia

-Captain America the Winter Soldier

-Hocus Pocus

I watched this for the first time. Not as good as I wanted… I really didn’t like the main ship. Also the little girl was not little-girl-ish enough. But I loved the witches, so there’s that.

-Frozen 2

This movie was GORGEOUS. The autumn aesthetics ohmygosh did I mention I love fall?

Also Kristoff’s entire scene while singing lost in the woods is hands down the best scene I’ve seen in a long time. I love it. I am going to go back and rewatch that one scene because IT’S AMAZING.


TV SHOWS:

-Doctor Who

I watched Blink again and Rosa, from the eleventh series of Dr Who. I LOVE historical episodes so much and I loved this one!

-Star Wars the Clone Wars

Updates on my Writing


Stuff that happened:

  • My play!!!!
    • very sad rn (the day of the last two shows) because I actually talked to people and I probably won’t ever again xD
  • The funeral…
  • I’m apparently nicknamed Fake Chicken idk why
  • I found out a reylo candle exists (tho I would only buy a PALPATINE candle because PALPATINE is amazing and i love the Senate xD)
  • I talked to people (surprising, I know)
  • I got sick and I now have more Cs than As
  • I have been (self) diagnosed with Chronic Confusion because, like John, “I don’t understand. I still don’t understand.”
  • I actually talked to people? (still can’t believe it)
  • I cleaned my room! (What a feat)
  • I was in an essay contest.
  • And I actually talked to people! Yet again
  • I bonded with this one random girl because I said this one guy looked like he belonged in r/niceguys (but he does tho. I’m not going to apologize)
  • So my play was great. I threw apples and did surgery on scarecrow and it was great. Also I played exploding kittens literally the entire time with a couple random people. ALSO I MADE THIS FANTASTIC CARD TOWER. IT HAD A GATE AND EVERYTHING. I ALSO MADE A MINI YODA MADE OF A COUGH DROP WRAPPER AND PUT HIM IN THERE. sorry i’m just super proud.
  • ALSO. I taught my little sister to answer “hello there” with “general kenobi” and she does it EVERY TIME
    • Her path to the dark side is now complete
  • I GOT SECOND PLACE IN AN ESSAY CONTEST! (I would’ve gotten first, probably, but the prompts were SO dumb and SO boring ew)
  • Also a few weeks ago I made friends with someone because they quoted palpatine at me so here we are. Palpatine quotes will make friends for you xD

      Oh yeah the funeral was kinda cool tbh. It was at a private airport for show planes (he loved flying)
      Hahah yeah but my school thinks I was forth place (even though I got the 2nd place medal and it says 2nd on my essay) and there were only four people so… Take that as you will XD

      Well I was lonely and decided, “hey, this person quoted palpatine so they’re cool I’ll just sit with them and listen to this random guy complain about his stitches” (Which is justified because it’s someone else’s fault, technically) and it kinda went on from there? So basically just quote palpatine and you’re good XD

      Yeah, I cleaned my room! I do that quite a lot, yet people are always surprised. I usually keep my room *neat* but sometimes it gets out of hand.

      NO DON’T IDOLIZE THINGS IT’S BAD but I’m flattered.

      I’ll sign this comment: BECK BECK SMAUGBECK

      I hope you have the March of your dreams!

    Ahh, first of all, thank you for mentioning my post, Beck! It makes me so happy 💖😭🤗! I’m glad February was a good month for you. Getting the second place in an essay competition is SO GREAT (sorry that the prompts were stupid though🤦‍♀️). I have my essay competition on the sixth of March and I am not hopeful at all lmao 😂 I hope you’re able to achieve all of your goals for March! 💖

    I hope you are well and I’m sending you all my best wishes (no returns I’m afraid)!!
    Firstly I am digging the palpatine love in this post and secondly, YES FROZEN 2 WAS AMAZING. I SAW IT TWO MONTHS AGO AND IM STILL OBSESSED. Kristoff’s song was a level of iconic I aspire to reach!!
    Also God Help The Outcasts is such an emotional song and deserves more appreciation!!
    And congrats on getting second place in the writing competition, that is amazing, well done!! ❤ And about your writing, I always struggle when making big changes too, like I can envision it but the actual execution takes such a lot of work and I suck basically hhaha!!
    I hope you have a great March!! ❤

    I used to play exploding kittens all the time, and then it started making stressed out when I played it so I try not to anymore. It’s fun though.

    I just watched frozen two with my sister last weekend and I really didn’t want to, but I actually ended up really liking it. This morning when I was getting ready for school she was playing all the music but it was actually in Japanese so now I have all the songs stuck in my head, especially Into the Unknown, but I don’t remember any of the lyrics so it’s just the melodies.

    Good job on the essay contest! What were the prompts? A few years ago, on the english state testing, the prompt for my story was sooooooo bad! It was that two kids went on a walk on an iceberg. And that was it.

    Also, good job making progress on your writing projects. I have so many ideas for books that I feel like would be really good, but I never have time to write!!!

    I hope that you have an amazing March!

      YES ANOTHER EXPLODING KITTEN FAN oh yeah I understand my brothers would get super competitive so I never play with them anymore xD

      YES! Wait it’s in Japanese that sounds amazing.

      Thank you! Oh um hmmm… One was “hOw To TrUlY fOrGiVe sOmEoNe” and “if you had unlimited time or money which would you choose and why” and another “i dont even remember it was that bad”
      Ew that sounds so boring but I’m sure you did great!

      Thank you! I have the time to write but I never actually *do* ahahahmmm

      I hope you have the March of your dreams!
