Day 3 of Study Challenge

Add an extra half hour to your study time today

I reviewed a bit for my test on The Catcher in the Rye for english, and I feel a bit more confident for the test. I might write a review for the book later, but as of now I'll just say that I think that book is interesting.

Day 2 Study Challenge

Clean up and organize your study area.

I try to keep my room as clean as I can possibly get it every week, so this wasn't a terribly difficult task. 



Day 1 of Study Challenge

The first challenge of the month is: Find something that inspires you to hit the books.
This goes hand in hand of why I'm doing this challenge anyways. It's all the study blogs I've found recently on tumblr and I want to show them to you :) They help me immensely when I get off task and then I go on to tumblr and oh there's someone working hard at the library for 6 hours, oh! there's someone making flashcards, oh! their notes are so color coordinated I want to do that too!!It's all of these motivations that make me want to try and do good on tests and in school.

30 Day Study Challenge

Heyyo!! So being a high school student has its trial and tribulations. It's not all fun and parties like the movies make it out to be (and if it is, well I'm not that kind of person to be turning it up on a Monday). I recently found this post on tumblr that I thought was interesting because it revolves around studying. It is a 30 day challenge where you have to post something every day for a month of something about studying.

Recently, I have gotten into the studyblr side of tumblr and am following probably more than 50 blogs all of people taking photos of their study sessions and it really is motivating. I would love to start this challenge on the first of November, but because I did not see it until now, I will have to play a bit of catch up. :) I hope one of you come along with me and do the challenge too, and help each other out if we end up slacking ;p

Vampire Academy Movie Review

Go watch the movie for yourself at amazon
Vampire Academy
Vampire Academy (2014) Poster

From imdb.com 
Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. 
First reaction to this movie is that it's just trying to replicate the Twilight series, right? That's what everyone thinks now in days when every a new young adult book to movie comes out. I wouldn't say it's anything like Twilight besides the fact that they have vampires and are in high school. Besides that, it's more of an actual high school scenario if there was a vampire high school. It depicts your standard high school cliques and love life issues along with political vampire authority power.

Sankarea Anime Review

 


Furuya's not interested in the living, he's got zombies on the brain! When Furuya's cat dies, he decides he's going to try and bring it back to life. In the process, he stumbles across a girl who is involved in an accident and turns into a real zombie! What's Furuya going to do now that the thing he loves the most is right in front of his eyes?
Sankarea is on the mature side of animes because it does show some nudity and the themes in the show are quite out there-and by that, I mean 10 year olds may not understand what the anime is conveying. The animation is nothing special, but it is nice to look at. It doesn't have any cool animation style or quirk that most animes seem to have now like K Project or Boku Wa Minna Kawaisou.

Hana to Akuma Full Manga Review



From mangahere.co
17-years-ago Vivi, the demon, decided to leave the demon realm and come to the human world. There he found an abandoned baby and on a whim decided to keep it. Since then he lived together with Hana...but having a 14 year-old girl around you, is it really as simple as you think it might be? 
I'm going to link my manga test for Hana to Akuma so I won't have to repeat myself.

So as I continued reading the manga, the characters started to grow on me more, and I liked how the story progressed. It was very enjoyable to read even though it pained me sometimes to see the characters in pain:( I don't have anything else really to say about the manga, besides what was in the manga test, but that the ending was not what I expected and I think the author did it cleverly and with grace. (yes it did make me tear up) tbh I think my favorite part of the manga was the ending...yeah, not sure what that really says about it.
Go read Hana to Akuma, Vol. 01 for yourself
