I really haven’t updated in a while. That’s due to technical difficulties. *mumbles* Stupid viruses.

Anyway, lots of new stuff happening.  Good things and bad things. All below the fold.

Eragon.

Posted in Literature at 4:36 am by Kaylaface.

Let me have a quick teenager moment and just say “OMG!!”

Okay, that’s done. Now, onto why I’m OMGing…

Eragon is my new literature crush.  Before, it was Draco Malfoy of the Harry Potter series, but until July 21, Eragon is my new love. I just finished the first book in the Inheritance trilogy. The second one is Eldest and the last is still unknown. Word on the web is it’s coming out NEXT YEAR!!! AHH!! It’s killing me going ten minutes without this series, let alone waiting a whole year.

The Girl in the Red Coat.

Posted in Life, Literature, Movies, My Mother, Personal, World at 11:09 pm by Kaylaface.

So, as you all may know, a couple of weeks ago, my English class took a trip to the National Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. (Never Again). After the tour, we had a few minutes before our bus left so I hit the gift shop. I got a button that says “Never Again” a keychain with the museum for my brother, a postcard with all the cool stuff in DC on it, my Save Darfur bracelet, and a book.

Never Again.

Posted in Literature, Movies, peace, Politics, Uncategorized, World at 7:27 pm by Kaylaface.

My English class is studying the Holocaust right now. We’ve read Night by Elie Wiesel who is a survivor, watched Spielberg’s Schindler’s List, written essays and journal entries, etc. We’ve buried our heads for the past six weeks into the past. Yesterday we went even further. We took a field trip to the National Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. If I could have taken pictures, I would have. There was so much to see and it was breathtaking. Everything about it, the pictures, the artifacts, the videos, everything. There were times I wanted to cry and times I felt nauseous. In one part of the museum they have an actual cattle car that was used to transport the Jews from the Ghettos to the concentration camps and when I walked through it, I wanted to puke so bad. I guess studying it and seeing all the pictures and such graphic descriptions of how it was in the cars was just too much. Luckily, I didn’t. I want to go back. I want to go read more than I did. I want to see it all. We were only allowed in the permanent exhibit, but I want to go see everything else. And then do some more touring of DC. I bought a pin that says “Never Again” which is a theme that is taught from the Holocaust. There’s also a Jewish hip-hop artist who goes by the name of Remedy. One of his songs is “Never Again” which we listened to. I found the video and I wanted to share it with someone.
