Quarterly Rewind- Winter 2014

So, I got this idea from nevillegirl at Musings From Neville’s Navel. Basically, it’s a meme going over the events of the past couple of months.

It’s hard to believe that winter is over, isn’t it? And I’ll be turning fourteen in a couple of days. Weird.


So. On to the meme.

1. The Neptune Project, by Polly Holyoke. It quickly became one of my new favorite books. I love the characters, the story, and the writing.
My birthday! No. Okay. Um. Seriously.
First of all, the new X-Men movie, Days of Future Past. And Muppets Most Wanted. Honestly, it seems like all the best movies are coming out this year. I’m so excited!
Second… let’s see. I’m going on a school camping trip; that should be fun, as I haven’t been tent camping in a while now.
Disney. After Frozen came out, I’ve been totally hooked on Disney. Remember how I was mentioning adding ‘yet another fandom’ to the list? Well, here’s another one. Give me a year and I’ll be a sobbing wreck from all the feels.
Third. Let’s see. Looking at FitzSimmons stuff on Pintrest because even though I don’t watch Agents of SHIELD it’s one of the bestest ships ever.
This Winter In One Word
Fast. The year has been going by much too quickly for me.

Top Two Books I Read This Winter


2. Shada, by Gareth Roberts. It’s like high-end Doctor Who fanfiction, plus it retains the trademark humor of Douglas Adams.
Two Things I’m Looking Forward To This Spring



Three New Obsessions This Winter
Marvel superheroes- the movies and occasionally the comics. I’ve never really been into superheroes before, but lo and behold. Here I am, a newly coined True Believer. Yet another fandom to add to my list.


Five Things That Happened This Winter
Hmm. Let me see.

I started a new novel, which I may or may not write a post about sometime in the near future.I downloaded the free trial of Scrivener, which I may or may not decide to use. I realized that my decision about which high school I want to go to will be a lot harder than I originally thought. I joined Pintrest and went crazy with it. And I learned the basics of html coding and css.

Three Songs That I Listened To Far Too Often This Winter
Let It Go, from Frozen. It’s perfect stress relief, and always manages to make me feel better.

Plus, it’s just plain awesome.



New Year’s Day, by U2. I just discovered U2 on my iPod, and I love it. It’s quickly made a place on my list of favorite music.

Eleanor Rigby, by the Beatles. It’s so sad. But as Sally Sparrow so wisely put it, “Sad is happy for deep people.”




The Song of the Lonely Mountain, by Neil Finn. It’s so beautiful and rather haunting.



So, I think that’s about it.

Photography

One of our beautiful chickens, Skywalker. 

A picture of the leaves on our banana tree. I like the textures in this one.

Some of the books on my bookshelf.

Another chicken pic, still Skywalker…

And another! This one is Spirit. It turned out quite a bit blurrier than I would have liked.

A lemon on our lemon tree.

A wood heart… I really like the color in this one.

A windchime hanging on our lemon tree.

Looking out of a hole in our fence… it looks a bit like fairyland, so I made the colors a bit more vibrant.

A parasol hanging on my bedroom ceiling. I like how the angles and shadows.
