But I just wanted everyone to know that I give New Moon two thumbs up.
I have heard that the movie didn’t get very good reviews from the people who actually know what they are talking about but I find that the movies that they like, I do not, and the movies that they do not like, I am in love with. Needless to say, New Moon is a winner in my heart. Some things that I enjoyed about the movie:

1. I was pleasantly surprised by how closely the book was followed. I am always expecting there to be several changes that stray from the story as well as things that the writers remove and I am completely content with the fact that they cannot put every single thing in the book into the movie. With this being said, the writers of New Moon did a fabulous job of getting the point of the movie across without taking out or adding in a ton of things. It made me happy.

2. Although New Moon was my least favorite book of the series, I think that the movie will definitely not be the worst. It might be a stretch, but I think that if the movie was not better than the book, it was very close.

3. It made me not hate Jacob so much; the writers did a good job of not making him so whiney in the movie, which I greatly appreciate. I still do not like him though.

4. It was just all around a great movie. Although there are things that you will not get the full grasp of if you have not read the books, I think that they did a good job of making it appealing to people who are not really the reading kind.

In conclusion, I think that it was a great movie and I definitely say GO SEE IT! Some things were definitely better than Twilight but I think that Twilight is just so classic that I still love it just as much.

So many new and wonderful things have been happening yet I have not had the time to write about them. I will just list a few of them so that you can all catch up with me:

1. I started clinicals! It has been…interesting. I have to wake up super early which is a bummer but I always feel really good about myself after I leave the nursing home; it makes me happy to make other people happy, especially cute old people:)

2. Jenni’s lil’ love is finally here! He is the sweetest little baby boy in the world (along with my nephew, of course)  and I am so happy for her and her hubby! Congratulations Jen!

3. It is almost Thanksgiving, which is my favorite holiday!

4. This weekend I get to hang out with the best friend while we go to my sister’s house to work on her project! I am so stoked because I haven’t seen her in a while and we will get to spend most of the day together (it is a long drive Kim)!

5. Last but not least, it is finally here tomorrow…I think you know what it is…oh yes! New Moon. I am going to the midnight showing and I am pretty stoked. It should be amazing.

I hope that everyone is having a great week!

Today I realized how close New Moon is to coming out. I am really looking forward to seeing the movie and what they do with it. This week is pretty low key with reading and homework so I decided that I am going to read the book again before I see the movie.  I got tickets to the midnight showing so I got a free download on Itunes of this song (I really like it)


NOT. I am trying to write a paper right now for my religion class. The assignment for the paper is to make an argument about the way that Mark 1 portrays Jesus as a miracle worker. After about an hour and a half of reading over texts and browsing online, I have nothing. So here I am, writing a blog.

School is going really well. I love all of my classes and I am meeting lots of new and wonderful people. Although I have several aquantances, I would say I have 2.5 friends. The .5 is because this person is between an aquantance and a friend. Life is good.

I also got a job! It is for the boys and girls club. I am really excited to start. I could have had this job two weeks ago (it was my first interview) but I wanted something a little closer to campus so I decided to keep looking. After much dissapointment, I couldn’t find what I was looking for. I decided I shouldn’t be picky and greedy and I should be thankful for the job that I was offered so I called and told them I wanted to accept their offer. I went today to fill out some paperwork and I am going to start next week!

In other news, I donated blood yesterday. I was really excited because it was my first time donating. All was going well and I was relaxed and thinking about school when the girl next to me finshed up and was packing her things up. When people were walking through the aisle where the donations were happening, the nurses were telling people to watch the arms and make sure you don’t bump into them. They did not remind this girl. As she slung her bag over her shoulder and whipped around, her bag hit me right in the arm that had a huge needle sticking out of. It was painful. I didn’t say anything though and I just thought bitter thoughts about her carelessness and how oblivious she was to it even hitting me. Other than that the experience was awesome and I got a super cool shirt for it too!

One last note…You may know that I am a fan of Twilight and New Moon is coming out in November. They just released a new trailer that is amazing. I suggest you watch it.

Have a great day!
