A while ago I read The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. I got this book as a Christmas Present and my immediate reaction was “this is the prettiest book I’ve ever seen.” Other than the colorful cover, the book really didn’t impress me. I had trouble getting into it and I could not connect with any of the characters, but that doesn’t mean it was the same reaction for everyone. That being said, the theme throughout the book really got me thinking.
I’m sure many of you agree that a pretty apparent motif in the book is Fate and Coincidences. Something I do with most of my friends is ask them which one they believe in. I’ve gotten a lot of “both” and “fate” but not a lot of “coincidences.” Personally, I believe both, but I lean more towards fate. That everything happens for a reason. I think that’s why the first two are chosen so often. People want to have a little hope. They want to believe that whatever happens, happens because it has to. That it means something.
That’s it for today guys, thanks for reading.
Once school started winding down, I began to listen to Ted Talks a lot more often than usual. And by that, I mean for the first time. It’s not that I had any objections to it or anything of the sorts, but I spend most of my time reading or doing something involving music. So I’ve been trying to decide what I want this blog to be about. This is what I have come up with so far.
Ted Talks Tuesdays
What if Fridays
Something Something Saturdays
Mondays will be about music if it wasn’t obvious by the title, but maybe books as well? Books and music OH and movies. There I just made an executive decision.
Tuesday is pretty self-explanatory. Any talk I’ve listened to will be up for discussion and I’ll write about what I thought, what I got out of it, etc.
Fridays will be on “What Ifs” such as “What if you only ate one type of food for the rest of your life?” Also, I will start to post poems and writing prompts on those days as well.
As for Sunday…anything I want.
Anyways, thanks for reading and see you Friday.
It’s been three days since I’ve graduated and nothing has happened. Actually, not true. For the past few days, I have watched the latest season of The Fosters, reorganized my bookshelf, and I am currently watching Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior. AND my books were delivered.
One of Us Is Lying
Alice in Wonderland
Packing for Mars
Strange the Dreamer
I’m excited, but I’m also in a slump. Which really sucks.
I think I might do some reviews on a few depending on how much I like them. I also think I’ll start posting my writing and some thoughts from graduation.
