Jonas Brothers


If you are looking for some new music for this summer and are bored with the norm, check out the Jonas Brothers. They have clean music that is great for any time, but expecially summer. The songs are for all occasions: love, breakups and even traveling to the future. They are cute too - which is always a plus, right? Check 'em out and I have faith you'll love them. :D

Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer


I heard all the hype a few years ago about these books, knew they were on the bestseller list for like 28 weeks in a row, and even had some of my friends recommend them to me, but I never really got into them. I never understood the draw of vampires and was never a fan of vampire books myself. So that was until recently, with the movie coming out and everyone reading them (not to mention the fact that Robert Patterson is playing Edward <3). So I finally decided to jump on the Bandwagon, and pick up a copy. My first reaction: WOW. These books are amazing! I can't believe that I never read them before!
The story follows the life of a teenage girl, Bella Swan, as she moves to live in the small town of Forks, Washington with her father. She is seriously depressed, and all it does is rain, which does not help her mood, but she stays and suffers cause she knows its right. Then she meets Edward Cullen, one of the strange Cullen family who hardly ever talks to anyone, go on family camping trips, are the most gorgeous family in town, have glitzy sport cars, and are, oh yeah, Vampires. Bella quikly falls for Edwards crooked smile and ocher eyes, but could she be loosing her head over him (quite possibly literally)???
Seriously read these books.
Yours Truly,

Mason by Thomas Pendleton


This book is delightfully disturbing, continuously flowing with action page after page, and is difficult to put down. The author has created an amazing web of consequences that will get one thinking about what is right and wrong, and when innocence is an acceptable excuse. He has also incorporated many realistic circumstances that young adults may have the unfortunate to experience into the story, while giving the readers a fictional basis to enjoy.
Pendleton has created a world, and characters that readers of all ages and experiences will relate to. The two main characters, Mason and Gene, represent the traditional “Good vs. Bad” theme in a refreshingly untraditional way. The conflicts are above and beyond what average readers will have experienced, but the feelings captured are all ones that they would have. Mason’s ability to create a world of his own is one that most of us dream of. After all, don’t we all want to escape sometimes?

Finally!!!!

Tennis


Yes... Im doing a sports review. As I said before this is a very eclectic blog, and I am going for all sorts of angles.


I just started Tennis this spring/winter, and I love it! It is so much fun. While it takes a lot of work and concentration, it can be done for recreation and enjoyment as well. This is a sport that you can carry with you for your entire life, and even play with your family. It is a great way to get in shape, and gain lots of energy. Plus you get to meet lots of new people, and wear cute skirts too! I definitely recommend checking it out, You won't regret it! (and if you do, don't blame me! :D)

Question/Answer

Q. What do you do if you have an "enemy" that keeps spreading rumors about you? This girl is a friend of my friends, but for some reason absolutely hates me. I don't know what to do, and I'm worried that she's going to turn my friends away from me, because she is always talking about me to them. HELP!!

A. Ok, well first what you need to do is reevaluate your friendships with the girls that allow this girl to talk about you. If you trust them and absolutely will die without their friendship then that's fine, but you need to decide if hanging out with someone who allows others to "dis" you is really best. Next, don't listen to the rumors and don't let them bother you! I realize that is easier said then done, but I went through the same thing and it really helped. Once this girl realizes that you don't care about the things she was saying, she will probably get tired of trying to hurt you. Remember, the only reason this girl would put you down is because she either is threatened by you, or wants to hurt you. If you show her that nothing she says is affecting you, she may reevaluate her priorities. Also, if she says mean things to your face, just laugh it off (and let her see you doing it!) Once your friends see that you don't care, they won't either, and it will show those around her that she may not be as accountable as they originally thought. Hope that helps, and let me know how it goes!
