Poupee Girl is a Japanese fashion website that I have been a member of since the summer of 2008.

It’s basically a dress up doll with the most adorable clothing. And while I can’t say that I’ve been the most dedicated member of the Poupee Community, there is something that keeps me coming back.

Here is what my poupee looks like. The picture will update each day I dressup, so It won’t stay the same. Over the years I’ve collected many friends. That’s one of my favorite things to do. I like to add people from all over the world and look at how they like to dress up their poupee. It doesn’t hurt that the commenting benefits increase if you are friends with another poupee.

You can look at items from your favorite brands, scope out new brands to follow, and most of all, have fun collecting outfits and clothes for your poupee. I haven’t uploaded any new clothes to my closet in a longgg time, but I hopefully will be doing so soon.

Today’s the first day of spring! My favorite season! Actually, I think I like all of the seasons but Winter haha.

I haven’t been doing very much these days. Playing too many video games, watching too many shows, and going on the internet too much.

I’ve been playing maplestory obsessively, and working on my blanket a lot. :) Still haven’t finished The Hobbit, and I started reading Specials, but I got a little bored like 1/3 through. I picked up This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen at the library last week, so I’ve been reading that all day. I’m already halfway through! I’ll probably finish it in like 3 days.

I really want to cut my hair short, but I’m nervous that it’ll look weird. I tried to get an appointment today, but it didn’t work out. I applied for a job at PETCO this weekned. It’d be fun, but I don’t know if it’ll work out since I’m not 18 yet and I haven’t graduated. Ohwell!

This is a terrible blog post haha SO MUCH RAMBLING. ohwell.

I think I might make a new blog because this wordpress thing isn’t working out so well. I’m getting too lazy! Maybe I don’t even need a blog. My life isn’t that exciting anyway!

I was reading Teen Vogue yesterday and I find it extremely hard to look at the advertisements. They’re all beautiful, but so fake. Just looking at one woman is strange because her face is a perfect gradient. Real people’s skin does not look that way. I saw a picture of Amanda Seyfried, but I almost didn’t recognize her because they had edited her face so much. The products look fake; the backgrounds look fake; the people look fake. I don’t see how people think that is attractive. I like things to look real. Nice, but REAL. I look up to beautiful models and actresses– not to digital artists and photoshop pros. Well, I do, but for different subjects. I don’t understand how other people could degrade themselves and feel down in the dumps because they don’t look like the women in magazines when the people in magazines are so not normal.

This has also been bothering me with all of the Hunger Games press. Jennifer Lawrence is beautiful, but on the magazine covers, she looks like a different person. Super glamorized and her face has been scrubbed clean of every single imperfection. She looks plastic. It’s such a contrast from her videos or her in-person appearances where she makes funny faces and is so real. It’s a crazy world we live in.

My post took on a serious tone, but that’s just what happens I guess. I’m very excited for the movie on friday though. I’m a little worried that I’ll hear crazy reactions at school on friday after the premier and it might ruin the movie for me.

Time to move on!

Hello! I am without Internet today so this entry is coming off my iPhone and onto the blog! I’m not sure how it’ll look but we’ll try.
I visited Boston last week to see Boston college and my sisters! There’s so much to do in Boston. It’s such a fun city. 3 days was definitely not long enough to visit! While in Boston I was able to do some crocheting and I bought a few books too! I’ll post them another day when I have pictures. :)
I started a new blanket!! It’s a granny stripe blanket and I got the pattern from Attic24. I think her crochet items are so beautiful because she uses such cheery and pretty colors! I followed her pattern and examined her photos to figure out how to do it. It’s so fun and I just love it! I’ve been taking pictures of my progress like crazy! Here are a few pictures.

I had the blue and white colors already but then I decided that I needed to make this blanket in all different colors so I went to Michael’s and bought tons of this snuggly wuggly yarn. And I shoved them all in one bag to carry around. :)

And right now I’m relaxing chomping on some haribo gummy bears and crocheting away.

It’s a pretty good day despite the Internet being down. Until next time! ☆彡

How do you decide what book to buy?

I went to Barnes & Noble earlier this week with the intention of buying the second and third Hunger Games books. My sister bought the first book quite a while ago. Apparently though, the paper back versions of the books don’t come out until MUCH after the hard cover books. I like it when the books are all the same height, so I didn’t buy the books. I’ll just wait until the paper backs come out.

I have a $25 B&N gift card that I’ve been carrying around for I think a couple years, but I never buy books. I always just get books from the library. Everything’s there, and they’re free. The other day I bought the Specials book by Scott Westerfeld used at the library, so I thought maybe I’d buy the first two books, ( I really disliked the fourth, so sometimes I pretend it didn’t happen) but they re-did the covers and if I were to buy them, then my books would not match. So I think for those books, I’ll try to buy them used online so that I can get the old cover.

Do you ever buy books? Do you buy a book before you read it, or after you have read it and know that you love it?

I love looking at my bookshelf and seeing the books that I have picked myself line up. It makes me happy, but I don’t have very many series. I have the first book in the series(or the third for Uglies) and no other volumes, which is disappointing.

One of these days I’ll go buy books!

I’ve fallen ill. I have a terrible case of senioritis and as far as I know, there is no cure. The disease will run it’s course until about June I believe. Wish me luck in trying to recover.

I haven’t been doing very much of my homework lately, looking up things i’m supposed to look up, or emailing people I’m supposed to email. Well I just took care of the email, so that’s one thing off the books.

I’ve been working on my blanket a lot recently and i finally have it at its final width. However, now I have to make it much longer. It’ll take a long time, but I’m making progress! I keep running out of my warm colors though, which is upsetting.

I went with my mom today to Michael’s again to buy some yellow and pink yarn. It’s really hard to find bright colored yarns. At Michael’s, they had a bright yellow, but they didn’t have pink. However, they had these really nice magnetic closing boxes, so I bought two of them :) I didn’t take a picture of them though, so maybe another time.

Since Michael’s was a semi bust, we also went to Jo-Ann Fabrics and found the pink yarn and also picked up an orange skein. For use when I run out of the Lion Brand Yarn I am currently using. All of the yarn I bought today was Red Heart Brand, and I think it was on sale at Jo-Ann Fabrics, but not at Michael’s.. oops! I like Red Heart even though it’s a little rough. It’s easy to work with and it comes in large packages which is very convenient. And the color selection is very nice in my opinion. Most of the pinks I saw today were either baby pink, or very sad pink with low saturation. Red Heart was the only yarn that came in bright pink. There was also a Red Heart pink that was sparkly, but that wouldn’t match my blanket so I didn’t buy it. It was called Red Heart Shimmer. Maybe someday the need will arise for such sparkly yarn haha!

Last night my best friend came over and we watched Pride and Prejudice. It’s such a good movie, but if you haven’t read the book it doesn’t make much sense at all. It’s too hard to keep up. I kept giving translations of what was going on. haha. I wish they hadn’t put in so many artistic scenes and instead included more of the story. But alas, that’s not how it was. It was a cute movie, but I definitely think the book is better. You get more of the romance and the drama. But the actor who played Mr. Darcy was indeed very handsome :) and how could I talk about this movie without talking about Keira Knightley? I love her. She’s one of my favorite actresses even if I can’t always understand what she’s saying. She looked so young in Pride and Prejudice compared to the Pirates movies.

I also watched 27 Dresses on tv yesterday. It’s such a cute movie, but I didn’t get to see the end! I’ll watch it again soon hopefully. Today I plan on watching Letters to Juliet. It looks cute, and I hope it’s interesting and not boring, but we’ll see!

I’ll never get any work done watching so many movies and crocheting so  much! But I don’t really mind! :P I’ll pay for this later, but for now, I’ll indulge my senioritis.

On a side note, I beat Dragon Age: Origins! :) The end of the game was tough, but I’m glad I pushed through to finish it. I started another run through as a rogue dwarf. It’s fun and different fighting, but the play through is a little boring since I already did all of it earlier. Ohwell, I probably won’t end up finishing it ever.

And I finished reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. It’s brilliant, yet exceedingly strange! I’m glad I read it, but I’m not sure if I was able to fully comprehend what I was reading. It was the most bizarre thing I have ever read I think. And I started reading the 4th Percy Jackson book, The Battle of the Labyrinth. But I think I actually never read it before! oops! How did that happen? Well, better late than never!! :)

There’s just too much to do!! I also started watching Young Justice, but I haven’t gotten through the first episode yet. I hope I can actually finish watching the whole series. I usually don’t. But I can try!

Well, it’s past 3 now, and I think I should probably eat lunch  before it becomes dinner. :P

Trying to be poetic with my title. lol

Why is it so hard to make plans with someone? This has come up so many times with almost all of my friends. We try to get together, but either we can never find a time when both people (or everyone with the large groups) is free or people bail at the last minute. Often times someone is too  lazy to ask their parents for permission or too lazy to just leave their house.

No matter the reason for the delay or lack of hang-outs, it’s always disappointing. I’ll try to keep this in mind next time I don’t feel like going out to meet my friends when they invite me.

In other news, I read all of the hunger games books in less than one week. My favorite was definitely the second book and I’m for team Peeta. The third books was completely and utterly depressing. All of the death made me very upset and hijacked Peeta. So many times while reading I wanted to cry. But I didn’t because I don’t cry while reading books.

Well, after I finished I ran around school for a couple days asking everyone if they had read the hunger games. I wanted someone to talk to it about, but there wasn’t much conversation to be found with anyone. I followed a bunch of hunger games blogs and my tumblr is currently filled with hunger games reblogs. It all makes me happy and I don’t regret it at all.

After finishing the Hunger Games, I decided to finally re-read all of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books since I never read the last book and I own them all. heehee I have a bad habit of not reading the books I own and instead reading library books. I finished the third book last night. I think I’ll read A Stranger on the Planet by Adam Schwarts before I start reading the 4th book though. My sister gave it to me for Christmas. Adam Schwarts was one of her teachers. I hope it’s an interesting book.

I finished yet another book! It makes me really happy that I have time to read, and to read so much. I read the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins  in like two days. :)

I admired Katniss a lot. She’s very strong and clever. Her situation with her mother was a bit strange, but I felt really bad for her when she was starving. I didn’t like Peeta much in the beginning of the book and it wasn’t until they were dying in the cave that I liked him at all. He’s still incompetent and not skilled at living in the woods at all. But once they were acting like lovers I was happy for them. I think that Katniss loves Gale, but she just never let herself before. I hope they can get together in the next book. I loved Rue a lot. She was so tiny and useful and loyal and cute. She reminded me of not a monkey, but I’m not sure what. haha I just picture a small woodland animal. and I liked Thresh a lot. He seemed really loyal and nice. Of course, the Career Tributes were disgusting. And all the parts where they were poisoned was terrible. And although Haymitch was gross and drunk in the beginning, he really pulled through for Katniss, so I liked him by the end. Cinna was always one of the best. I was glad that he wasn’t crazy haha.

I loved how Katniss fought with a bow and arrow. I don’t know why I like it so much in like everything. haha. Reading things like this makes me really wish that I knew how to fight like them. I get the same feeling when I play video games or when I read any of the Tortall books. The adventure and fighting. I don’t know why I like it that much lol. But then again, fighting, especially with swords or bows is so utterly useless in life today. x.x I’ll get over it eventually.

I’m not really sure how to judge if it was good writing or not, but it definitely made me want to keep reading. At the end of a chapter my heart clenched and I was excited or worried for what was to come. I can understand why people love these books. they’re so intense and emotionally charged its crazy. I hope I can find the motivation to read the other books soon. but until then, I’m going to re-read the Percy Jackson books and finally read the Last Olympian
