Today is all about movies and shows! As I haven't been working these past couple months, I've been cleaning, writing, working on my video game (the outlining parts), and watching YouTube and movies/shows on Netflix and Tubi.
Charisma found Tube first, I just joined the bandwagon, but I've got to say, it's pretty awesome. There's a lot of old shows and movies that are on it for free and there are hardly any ads.
I like to watch crazy and not widely known romance movies and they are absolutely crazy. Like. I wish I was kidding. Tubi has those movies that no one wanted to watch but needed a platform and I love them. Some are absolute gems that have horrible covers (I watched a pretty good Christmas Prince one that I have to say is 10/10) and some movies are absolutely awful that they bring me such amusement.
The good stuff.
Have you watched any good movies or shows recently? Let me know down in the comments! I've heard that 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' is finally back on Netflix, so if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.
Stay Safe, Stay Home and Until Next Time My Friends... Adieu
Bianca here. Remember how two weeks ago my focus hasn't been top notch? Yeah, it definitely has seemed to be in a standstill.
When I'm watching a show? 10 out of 10, it seems that I've got 20/20 vision with that stuff. My brain is on POINT.
But with regular and important stuff? My brain skipped a heartbeat and a town because it apparently isn't working.
So as I was looking at previous (and unpublished) blog posts that have never seen the light of day, I laughed with tears. I had a Miraculous Ladybug blog post where I was going to scream about Hawk Moth (probably still will). Charisma even did a full-blown post about 90's anime that she hasn't posted (but it's been in the works since 2018 ... I'm going to ask her to publish that one). Another one is about Japanese Sign Language, which I absolutely love and I will definitely talk about that in the future.
But that's been about it. Life has been a roller coaster (of enjoyment, I have been thoroughly enjoying my time) and I have been able to do a lot more than I thought I could (like crochet), so I'm really grateful for that. And that's all about me :)
Anything new happening with you?
Stay Safe, Stay Home and Until Next Time My Friends... Adieu
You read right.
We're going to audition to be a part of High School Musical 4. And, boy, am I excited. And nervous. And really happy. Okay, I'm have a lot of feelings towards this, but hey, I'm gonna give it my best go and I'm going to love EVERY MINUTE.
And if you didn't know that they're doing auditions, you should go do it (btw, you need to be around 14 - 17, have the Disney Applause app, find a song that fits your vocal chords--only do a verse and the chorus--, and practice the script. More info about auditioning here). I've always wanted to be a part of Disney, it would amazing if Charisma and I were part of the cast. :3
School's going really good. I've got a A's in everything but science (I've got a low B which I need to start getting a high B.... because bad things are going to happen if I don't). I'm trying to get done with school around May 18th, which, if I do, would be GREAT. The only thing I'm having trouble with is my Geography assignment. I have to plan a dream vacation. Sounds easy, right? Well, I still think it's kind-of easy, but I've been hitting some bumps. I've got to plan this vacation down to the slightest detail and that's going to be really hard (mean finding pictures of certain places, I have to record the weather, the average precipitation, etc.). And my maximum budget is 10,000 dollars and the minimum I have to spend is 8,000 (keep in mind I can't go over budget, 5% can be spent for gifts/souvenirs and 10% can be used for food, while the rest must be used for hotel, airline tickets, car rental, etc.). You get the idea.
I'm still having my major writings block (wanting to write something, but avoids writing at all times, you can read my small post at My Writing Journey). Although, early this week I was able to write a small bit for a new story. That made me really happy. I'm actually really surprised that I wanted to write this blog post, because I've been wanting to do it for a long time now.
Yup! I'm still at it. I've master hiragana, I'm working on katakana (although I need some more index cards... -_-) and I'm working on kanji (slowly, but I'm getting there).
The site's that I'm using (apart from the first Learning Japanese):
Before I begin this lovely post, I must tell you a short little story that I had with Charisma today. I was minding my own business and doing school when I said aloud, "What are the factors of 63?". Charisma then asked, "Piggy Fruit?"
PIGGY FRUIT PEOPLE.
I began laughing (because I couldn't believe she said Piggy Fruit) and said, "What?!" in between my hysterical dolphin/hyena (I either call my laugh a hyolphin or a dolphyena). And then she went on to say, "J-Just don't listen to me....".
At the time, it was hilarious, but looking back it's super sad. :D I guess that's what makes it funny.
Alright! Now on to the actual post!
Let's begin with the Advantages:
Mind Reading Powers
Yes it's a thing. Twins are born with it and they just have this type of connection. When one gets hurt, the other feel injured. When one is separated from the other, they both feel lost and confused (this happens to be my experience with Charisma and I KNOW there are other types of twins out there, so ask about their experiences too). And twins can finish each other sentences or they can say the act same thing at the exact same time that you were going to.
Let me expand on something: Finishing Each Other Sentences
Crying, Singing, Dancing
YOU GET TO DO THIS WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND. Isn't that just great? To sing a random song in the backseat while your older sisters and parents are having a serious conversation (someone needs to lighten the mood), to dance in the grocery store (we've actually been complemented many times for doing this), to cry at everything Marvel, DC Comics, books, anime's and etc. (We ALL know that Anime's and Books kill hearts.) So it's nice to know that you don't have to do it alone.
Loves The Same Thing
Since twins are still human, we each have different things we like, what we don't like, and so forth. But, there are just some things that we absolutely adore (and it's because we get each other hooked and then in the near future we blame each other for getting hooked on something... because we love it to much.)
And those are the advantages! There are plenty more, don't feel as if that's it, but I can't remember them (I had this whole post planned out and I forgot like half of what I wanted to talk about....!!) Now, we're off to the Disadvantages:
Since your twin is your absolute best friend, it sort of feels VERY hard to find another best friend (you know, that's outside of your family). And it's really sad because you WANT to make another best friend.
The Third Wheel
I always feel that whenever I make a new friend, I become the third wheel (BUT HEY. I'm to happy to let that bother me!). Although I feel as if when we (meaning me and Charisma) make a new friend together then our new friend will either be bombarded by questions or feel like the third wheel (because Charisma and I like to talk among ourselves as well). And that makes me feel really bad because I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE ANYONE OUT!!! It makes me sad.... :'(
Since twins are connected we do everything together. So if one of us wants to have a private conversation with our mother or father, the other isn't allowed (which I don't understand because later on we're going to tell each other). Although, those alone talks our very helpful because being a twin can be hard sometimes. This brings us to our next topic:
You remember when I said that twins tell each other everything and add on to a conversation when the other just doesn't know what to say? Well, that can get VERY aggravating. Especially when, in the first place, you were handling the conversation rather well and, two, you could actually think (I'm not sure, but I think that I can actually put more words together when I'm a good distance away from Charisma. It doesn't mean I don't love her to death, it's just that when ever I see her I want to tell her a bunch, but I still want to talk to the human beings that I'm friends with--this will bring us to our next topic). Weird and confusing, right?
And it is VERY annoying when the twin adds UN-NEEDED information. That's when it's the worst and most aggravating.
Morse Code... For Twins
Well, I guess this can be placed as both an Advantage and Disadvantage. The reason being is that when you talk in public areas, Charisma and I can talk about the most RANDOM-EST things ever. But it's also very annoying when an adult, who has NO idea what we're talking about (we could be talking about school), says 'You two should be talking about something that could effect (or is it affect?!) people's lives.'
That just hurts.
And then... we become silent. It hurts when people say that. Honestly it does. There isn't a lot we can talk about except what we know (which is techincally games, books, games, anime's, games, manga's, games, Marvel, games, DC Comics, school, knitting, crocheting... you get the idea). AND WE'RE HOMESCHOOLED FOR PETE'S SAKE. Not a lot of interaction (WEELLLLL other than teachers of course and time to time we do get open chat).
It's also very sad when you're talking to a friend and they don't have any idea what we're talking about. Because you want to talk about it with them! And, yes, at times, it is nice to have everyone ignore you and just talk (yes, it does feel nice during some occasions) with your best friend. (But we don't want to hear snarky remarks because of that...)
So yes! I absolutely LOOOOVVVVEEEE being a twin. I've handled a lot of situations with Charisma, so I'm used to (almost) everything. I wouldn't trade Charisma out for the world. Sometimes I wonder why people say 'Oh, I wish I had a twin'.
Do you have anymore questions about being a twin? Do you have a twin? Or do you have a best friend that's like your twin? Tell us in the comments!
Hello again world!
Lately, I have been obsessing over a box of Japan goodies called Doki Doki Crate by Japan Crate. This crate is filled with happy, happy sunshine. Gosh, I love this box (I call it a box since it is MUCH easier to say than crate, in my opinion).
Do you remember SuperCuteKawaii from the blog post 'Best. Blogs. Ever.'? WELL, they opened up the January Doki Doki box and I love it! I also so a video about someone opening the Doki Dokie box, sooooo I'mmma gonna show you that one! (The video is for the December 2015 Doki Doki box.)
I love it! It just so darn cute and adorable. Charisma and I are thinking about whether we should subscribe to this or not. And if we do, what plan would we choose? IT'S SO HARD.... :'(
Hmm... I haven't talked about my daily life in a long time have I? WELL, I have a 81% in Algebra 1, I have an 88% in Comprehensive Science 3, I'm not sure what I have for LAC (Literary Analysis and Composition) because they won't tell me, and I have a 100% for Geography which is proving to be MUCH harder than I anticipated it to be (DARN YOU GREAT SCHOOL).
Yes, I am still Cheerleading. I've been saying that I don't like it and everything, but I'm still at it. Funny right? But I guess it has it perks, you know? Going to all the games are very aggravating, I have to learn new dances and cheers every week, and my mother thinks that I LOVE it a lot. At some moments I do, just not every single minute. How do you tell someone that you don't like something that they thought you liked? I-I'll figure that out...
I still have my glasses and they aren't going ANYWHERE. Although, I do want new glasses. I've had mine for two, maybe three(?) years now. But, hey, as long as I still like them, they're fine.
Let us move on! Hmm... what else has been happening in my life... Well, I guess not much else. For Christmas, Charisma and I got an Xbox 360 with Forza Horizon 2 on it and it is sooo much fun.
Well, I must be off! I have left a special button for you to click on getting you straight to the Doki Doki crate site. Have fun!
I guess by now everyone is wondering why we don't post everyday. The reason why is because we're either doing school, reading, listening to music, or checking out cool blogs. And now, I am ready to present some of the blogs we just love to look at!
I'm sure I've missed plenty of blogs, but that's all I can remember at this current moment in time. I hope all of you enjoyed looking/reading about all the blogs that me and my sister love and we hope that you enjoy them too!
What blogs do you like? Come on and tell us in the comments! Also, I asked my mother my mother if she would mind if Charisma and I did giveaway's in the future and she said that she wouldn't mind if we did that. So keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway.
Once again, you must travel back in time to yesterday (that's the only way this post will make sense) and as you finish remember that no one can travel back in time (WELLLL, technically, that's no true because you have your memories and memories are your gate way to the past. So, you know, if you look at it that way....).
Tomorrow, yes tomorrow, will be the beginning of 2016. Janurary will begin, school will start the second semester, a lot of exciting shows and movies will be coming out, people will be wishing that the holidays weren't over, and it's going to be the year of the presidential election.
Wow. Put it like that and 2016 sounds scary (except for the show/movies part). I don't want to bore you with why I put the 'presidential election' thing-a-ma-gig-er up there, but this years wanna-be presidents don't thrill me. At all. And I don't like politics much so I guess that could be a reason why too.
I'll try not to think of 2016 very much (how can I not think of 2016?!!???! It's literally tomorrow!!!).
Charisma and I have started our Marvel movie watching! Meaning we've only seen Hulk (2003 version), Iron Man (you know, the one with Robert Downey Junior? The very first one?), and Thor (the one and only Chris Hemsworth is in it). Our next movie is Captain America with the dreamy Chris Evans. Eeep! I am so excited! :D
Charisma and I have been working on collaborative stories together for a good while (none of them seem to be going, if you know what I mean) and I've been wanting to make this RPG board game for quite some time (maybe something like Dungeons and Dragons?). But the question that's been stopping me from making the game (all you need is rules, character classes and a pair of dice.... Right?) is should I make it into a book before I make it into a game (I have made some characters that I really want people to enjoy and have fun reading, but would it be cooler that the characters I made were mentors and went on journeys with the RPG-er's?) or should I make the game first and incorporate that into a book? Yup, I know. C-O-N-F-U-S-I-N-G.
I don't even have a name yet.... Oh well! I'll think of one (sooner or later).
Does anyone have their New Year's Resolution written down yet? I don't (because I usually write it down at night time).
Well, I must be off! I'm a late little bunny and I have things to do.
To begin this post, I must, must, MUST do this.
I am hilarious and I deserve a applause (just kidding... Well, I am hilarious, but you don't have to give me an applause. :D).
Okay, NOW I can begin. Yesterday, Star Wars officially came out in to US. I am bouncing happy. Like super happy. I mean come on! WHO DOESN'T LOVE STAR WARS? (If you love Star Trek more, I get that. You're cool.) All the characters are so original, BB-8 is just do cute that is is humanly unbelievable, AND there's a new villain (who doesn't love a good villain to scream at?).
I am so excited to see it! (I've been pumped up for this movie for such a long time and I didn't see it on its release date.... That is really funny. :D) My mom said that we could watch it as our Christmas movie. As a family tradition would tell, we would always watch a brand-new movie (usually Narnia) at the movie theater but since Narnia has paused (meaning that the kids have to grow up) we would watch other movies. But I don't think we did this tradition last year.
Google made this really cool website for Star Wars and it was amazing (click here to check it out!).
Well, I've got to go and clean up, but I promise, I'll do a post next week! See ya!
Bianca and I have been on these super weird crazes. When Bianca shows me something like Transformers-wise, then I go onto Viewpure to find awesome songs or pictures that relate to Transformers. For Bianca and I currently, it's Transformers and all things Anime/Manga.
Well, back to the topic: TRANSFORMERS!!!!!
Transformers are so cool! Bianca and I used to watch this Transformers show where this girl with pink hair discovered the Autobots and got involved with the war and such. We totally forgot about that show, and then our mother puts on her Netflix list this show called Transformers: Prime. It's an awesome CGI (<-- CGI = 3D Animation) show. We watched that, then got one of our older sisters to fall in love with it. Now all we have to do is watch the show that comes after it (we still haven't....).
Now, because everything is all gone/we watched it all (we didn't actually watch all of the 1st show, but that show is super hard to find), Bianca and I want to watch the Transformers movies. THEY LOOK SO AWESOME!!!!!! X3
So, because of the weird craze/addiction, I found a soundtrack for all of the movies... in 1 video. (Thank you person who did it!!!!)
Here it is:
I HAVE FALLEN SO DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH THIS VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Sorry!!!! It's just so amazing! :3 :3 :3 X3 X3 XD XD
I'm getting a bit... crazy. Sorry. :3
Is there a song you totally love from one of the soundtracks? Tell me in the comments!
STEVE JABLONSKY, YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!!
The Cloak Society is a trilogy by Jeremy Kraatz.
The Cloak Society has wonderful lessons that I couldn't begin to describe the amazingness of.
The Cloak Society has ruined and my life... It's one of my favorite books that I have to own.
Okay, so the Cloak Society trilogy didn't really ruin my life, but it's over. I finished all 3 books. I want more though! It was a very happy ending, but... You know those books that have great endings and you totally love it, it's just that you're craving more awesomeness? Yeah, I'm there. -_- Not the greatest way to feel.
I am very happy for Mr. Kraatz for writing this book. It's absolutely wonderful! :D I totally give it 5 stars! :3
I recommend this book to everyone 13 and older.
What books are you totally in love with? Tell me in the comments! :D
