My thoughts, opinions, and whatnots.

My 21st Birthday

I recently turned 21 and had my first alcoholic drink. For my first drink, I had a chocolate martini from one of the local Tony Roma’s. All I can say is that my mom was right when it came to alcohol: it’s an acquired taste. To me, the chocolate martini tasted like cough medicine and had an after kick of maraschino cherries, the kind of cherry that’s used for sundaes. Personally, I think it was the combination of alcohols that were used to make the drink taste like cough medicine. Anyway, a piece of advice for all the alcohol virgins out there, get a fruity drink for your first drink.

Summer Review

I was looking through my previous posts recently, and I realized that I haven’t really written that many posts dealing with my personal life. Anyway, up until about a week ago, I was in summer school taking cross-cultural psychology. I really enjoyed the class as opposed to my astronomy class. I was thinking about my experiences with both classes. I noticed that with the astronomy class, it felt like the class dragged on forever. On the other hand, with the cross-cultural psychology class, the six weeks went by so fast that I was like, What? The class is over already? I honestly felt like it was two separate summers. Although I wonder if it’s partly because I have more interest in psychology than in astronomy. Plus, I was counting down to my birthday. Anyway, that’s just my thoughts on my summer.

The Volturi

I recently found a blog that talked about the picture of the Volturi that leaked from New Moon. When I first saw the picture, I was like “Oh my God! That’s Dakota Fanning, Jaime Campbell Bower, Cameron Bright, and Christopher Heyerdahl?” I can see the resemblance between Jaime Campell Bower, who was Anthony in Sweeney Todd, and Cameron Bright, who was Jimmy/Leech, the mutant who’s power neutralized other mutants’ power in X-Men 3, and their respective characters. But when it came to Dakota Fanning and Christopher Heyerdahl, I didn’t recognize them at all. As for Michael Sheen, I can’t really say because I haven’t seen a lot of his pictures or movies. Anyway, with the exception of Michael Sheen, I really think that each actor that was chosen are the appropriate choices for each character, especially Christopher Heyerdahl. I think that he can pull off the creepiness of Marcus, based on what I’ve seen in Supernatural and Are You Afraid of the Dark. To all Supernatural and Are You Afraid of the Dark fans, he played the demon Alister in season 4, the alien Leonid and Nosferatu in The Tale of the Thirteenth Floor and The Tale of the Midnight Madness. Anyway, I can’t wait to see New Moon.

Renesmee and Claudia

Like I said in my previous post, I only read Twilight, New Moon, and a little bit of Eclipse. Anyway, I read the plot summary of Breaking Dawn and I find it interesting that the two vampire series that I read raises the issue of an immortal child being made. In Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles, there’s the character of Claudia, a vampire that had the body of a five or six year old girl. And in Breaking Dawn, there’s Renesmee. I find it interesting because in both series, immortal children aren’t allowed, even though Renesmee isn’t a true immortal child. She’s actually a dhampir. Anyway, I digress. I think the reasoning behind the whole not allowing immortal children is that, even if they were under control as per the Twilight series, they (the immortal children) can’t really blend into society with no “adult” and without raising eyebrows. It’s basically the same thing that I wrote about in my Claudia post. Anyway, I just find it interesting.

Edward vs. Jacob

I was recently looking at the forums on the amazon.com page for the paperback copy for Eclipse and one of the posts talked about who would you choose between Edward and Jacob, and how old each person was. Anyway, a majority of the replies were for Edward and had a wide range of ages, while the rest for Jacob or neither. Now, keep in mind that I have only read Twilight, New Moon, and the preface and the first chapter of Eclipse. I still have to read Breaking Dawn. In either case, I don’t really know how Edward or Jacob act in Eclipse and Breaking Dawn as of yet. However, based on Twilight and New Moon, I personally choose Jacob over Edward. No offense to Edward fans but I find him to be a bit too old fashioned for me, in terms of personality. I’m not saying that I wouldn’t want my guy to open the door for me every once in while, but I wouldn’t want to be treated like I’m a piece of glass either. I would rather have my guy be more like Jacob, personality wise. Anyway, that’s just my opinion and keep in mind that it was formed only on the first two books.
