Feeling much better today! Barely any pain in the morning but I went to see World War Z and now I'm back to feeling pain again. Darn.


College Apps.
Yeah, let's say that again. College APPzzzzzzzzzz (with z to the infinite power). Seriously, it sucks. I only apply for what? 4 colleges why the heck does it take so long? And oh, I just missed the scholarship deadline. Beautiful.
But anyway, I should get over it. No point in mourning something already happened. So...moving on to the next thing....
I want to tell you about school...but then's kinda in the category of college app...
Me: Let's talk about the Calc. Test!
Self : Not a chance. I failed it so shut up!
Me: Self! How did I fail it? I studied so hard!
Self: I don't know...maybe you're not smart enough! Then again, I've never been smart for crying out loud!
Me: None sense! I got 4.0 GPA!
Self: Oh shut up. Nobody cares!
Me: Fine!
Self: Of ocurse!
Me: Hmph!
Self: Hmph squared!
Self: Okay, fine. Let's talk about books.
Me: Not until you admit that you're not smart!
******Glared at myself.
Self: Fine! I admit! Happy?
Me: No. How am I supposed to be happy knowing I'm stupid?
Self: Forget it. Let's talk about Ice by Sarah Durst. Didn't I say it good?
Me: Ice? Heck yeah, It's good man!
Self: What did you like the most?
Me: The girl. She's such a tomboy and sassy. I'm not really into strong willed girls...Okay, that sounds kinda wrong. I'm not really into books about women working their way up in society and stuff like that, but I really like this girl. She's exactly what I [secretly] want to be.
Self: So what's it about?
********Starring unbelievable at Me.
Me: What the hell? Aren't I me? Why don't I know what's it about?
Self: Sometimes I forget stuff...
Me: Okay. Here's the summary of Ice taken from BN.

When Cassie was a little girl, her grandmother told her a fairy tale about her mother, who made a deal with the Polar Bear King and was swept away to the ends of the earth. Now that Cassie is older, she knows the story was a nice way of saying her mother had died. Cassie lives with her father at an Arctic research station, is determined to become a scientist, and has no time for make-believe.
Then, on her eighteenth birthday, Cassie comes face-to-face with a polar bear who speaks to her. He tells her that her mother is alive, imprisoned at the ends of the earth. And he can bring her back — if Cassie will agree to be his bride.
That is the beginning of Cassie's own real-life fairy tale, one that sends her on an unbelievable journey across the brutal Arctic, through the Canadian boreal forest, and on the back of the North Wind to the land east of the sun and west of the moon. Before it is over, the world she knows will be swept away, and everything she holds dear will be taken from her — until she discovers the true meaning of love and family in the magical realm of Ice.
Me *holding back tears*
Self: z....
Me *sighing happily while recalling the book*
Self: zzzzz....
Me* turning to look at Self.
Self: zzzZZZzzz
Me: Yo! Wake up! what the hell?
Self: zzzZZZzzzZZzzZZZZZZzzz
Me *slap myself*
Self: What the hell was that for?
Me: Why the hell did you ask me to talk about books if you're going sleep?
Self: Exactly that. I ask you talk about books so I can get to sleep.
Me: You sleep again, you lose your eyeballs. Now let's continue with the review, shall we? :>

Overall, I think this book is gorgeous. It's divided into two sections. The first describes about the relationship bet. Cassia and Bear. I'd say it's very vivid and beautiful. My stomach made some weird butterfliie thing...when they first kiss. It's not the best romance I've ever read but I certain will it give a 4/5 rate on romance al--

Self: I like romance to! Oh! Oh! I read this b--

Me *grabbed my face and pushed Self back*: Sorry for the interruption there. Technical issue. Ahahah...ahaha...ahaha...haha...ha...okay. Back to the review. The second part is about Cassie looking for Bear (not gonna tell why. And there's a GREAT addon in this part). For some reason it reminds me of the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Of course, she didn't have to fight to survive but the obstancles she had to overcome were pretty harsh for a girl of 18 years old. In fact for anyone at all. The description was vivid and the words just flow through you.

Self: Mmmhhmmm...
Me: I like the way the author embedded Cassie's thoughts once in a while to contrast what she thought to with she actually said. It made everything seemed more real. The ending was great! I hope there'll be a second book to this series about their d...Hm...don't want to spoil t--ARHG!! WHAT THE HELL?
Self: That's what you get for grabbing my mouth!
Me: You bit me! Right on the tongue! You're disgusting!

****Glass breaking and pillow kicking sound******

Self: Stop typing already! My review sucks!
Me: FYI! YOU are me. So stop saying my review sucks you moron!
