Books I read this summer (2007)

(1) Chasing the Dead by Joe Schreiber -
It was definitely weirder than I thought it was going to be, but I really liked it. Kind of creepy at some parts (it has a little scifi in it), but it was interesting and it kept my attention. The ending was great, and I can't wait for his next book. It wasn't a hard book to read either. You can get a summary here: Chasing the Dead at

(2) Don't Kiss Them Good-bye by Allison DuBois -
This is a non-fiction book and I really enjoyed it. Allison DuBois is a medium and the book is based on her and about her life and her readings she does. It's a very interesting book if you like this type of thing (which I do) and even if you wouldn't read something like this, it's enjoyable for anyone. The TV show Medium is actually based on her. You can get a summary here: Don't Kiss Them Good-bye

(3) We Are Their Heaven by Allison DuBois -
This is Allison's second book and I really enjoyed it. It's interesting like the first. If you read her first book and like it, I suggest you read this one. You can get a summary here: We Are Their Heaven at

(4) Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult -
One of my new favorite books. I loved it. The storyline is so interesting and it keeps you guessing. I highly recommend this book. And the truth it, stuff like what happened in this book, happens in real life. It's kind of sad to think about it but it does. Nineteen Minutes was well-written and real. It's a great book. You can get a summary here: Nineteen Minutes at

(5) Body Count by P.D. Martin -
Another new favorite. I absolutely LOVED this book! I finished this 376-page book in two and a half was just that good! There was twists and turns in every chapter, along with romance and intensity. I got so into this book when reading it. I definitely reccommend this book. It was great! You can get a summary here: Body Count at

(6) Now You See Me by Tina Wainscott -
Wow, another great book! I finished this book in a day - it was that good! This book remind me of Body Count, so maybe that's why I liked it so much! It's about a woman who was kidnapped at an early age and was left blind from the abduction and was left with a psychic gift. Sixteen years later, another kidnapping is taking place - but this time she can see through the eyes of the little girl who was kidnapped. I definitely recommend this book! You can get a summary here: Now You See Me at

(7) Held Hostage by Michelle Renee -
Held Hostage is a non-fiction book based on an actual kidnapping of a mother and daughter. It was pretty interesting. I couldn't imagine going through something like that. You can get a summary here: Held Hostage at

Blake Lewis <3

I loved him on American Idol...I didn't exactly think he should win (it is a singing competition) but he was clearly the better performer! These are my 2 favorite perfomances of his:

WOOOO! I'm so excited!!!

I just found out my dad got tickets to the Yankees vs. Orioles game for June 26th...Derek Jeter's birthday!!!!!!!! I've been begging him to get tickets since January! I am soooo happy right now! :)

Monday, May 28, 2007

I'm still a fan!

The Yankees are awful so far this season: plain and simple. I can't sugar coat it. I'm still a fan though. I'm sticking by them no matter what. It stinks cause Jeter and Posada are having a great year so far! A-Rod is putting up great numbers as well. Too bad the bullpen can't keep a lead. But I don't care how awful they may be (and it's getting pretty bad). I hope they can turn it around this season and if not, there's always next year! :)

Highlights from the Orioles game I went to today!

Here are some of my highlights from the game today:

-the Orioles won - they beat the Oakland A's 8-4. Their pitching was strong and the bats came alive
-the HRs - Tejada, Mora, and Markakis all had a homerun
-the Crab Shuffle - they do this every game and I love it every time...and of course I guessed the right crab :)
-the Kiss Cam - this is where they show two people and then they kiss (if they are together haha) was really cute to watch some of the couples on the camera and one guy even put on a show
-Brian Roberts - okay, he is ALWAYS a highlight for me...I love the guy! He was only 1-3 but he did have an RBI single :)
-Nick Markakis' diving catch - Nick made an amazing catch to end the bottom of the 8th inning...he is truely a great player!
-the Ketchup/Mustard/Relish race - this is that stupid race where three cartoon hotdogs run around a track...I picked Ketchup to win...Mustard won
-the adorable little girl who sat in front of us - she is probably one of the cutest kids I have even seen. She liked Kayla's fan and giggled when Kayla fanned her. She was adorable!

The Departed

Hmm...a very interesting movie. It was little gross for my liking though. Overall, pretty good...a little confusing at sometimes, but I liked it. Probably a one-time movie to watch but if you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you do.

Lost season finale...holy crap!

I was going to write this entry tomorrow but for the fact that my mouth is literally still open due to shock, I figured I should write it now. Holy crap. The ending was bascially the best ending I could ever imagine for the show this season. I'll admit I was losing interest and was "tempted" to drop the show but I am so glad I kept watching. So where do I start? Okay, so I use to hate Charlie but after tonight's episode, I love the guy! I can't believe he died. I was actually starting to like him...and the fact that he saved Desmond makes me like him even more. I'm so glad this was a Jack-centic episode because he is my favorite character! There is so much to him we don't know about and I love finding out more and more. I had NO idea they showed a "future" flashback. And seeing Kate at the end? I was pretty much in shock for about 10 minutes after. The thing I want to know is: WHO'S FUNERAL WAS IT!? It's driving me crazy! I don't know why but part of me thinks it was Sawyer's since Jack had thought Kate might have gone. Wow. I also loved the fact that Hurley basically saved all their asses. This episode was so amazing, there's nothing else to say but that. Amazing. Plain and simple. I can't wait for next season!

Congrats to Jordin Sparks!

Jordin Sparks, the new winner of American Idol. Congrats to her and congrats to Blake for making it as far as he did (he is a true entertainer).

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

GREAT night of TV!

Here's my intake on my night of shows:

American Idol - My two favorite people are in the finals, Blake and Jordin. I've been rooting for Blake from the beginning and I'm glad he's in the finals, he's a great performer. And I say performer because American Idol is a singing competition. Jordin does have the better voice. They both sang the finale song and Jordin definitely rocked the house. She fit the song better. I love Blake, and even though he's a GREAT entertainer...I'm thinking Jordin's gonna take it all tomorrow. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a Blake fan and I'll definitely be buying his CD and I would love to go to one of his concerts (he better tour!) because he's such a great performer and knows how to rock the crowd. If Blake wins tomorrow, I'll be happy. If Jordin wins, I'll be happy. I can't go wrong tomorrow.

Dancing with the Stars - Tonight was the finale I have been waiting for! The three couples were all amazing and it couldn't have been a better finale. I perdicted Laila Ali would come in third, and she did, so it was down to my two favorites, Joey Fatone and Apolo Anton Ohno. I've been a Joey-fan since day one (gotta love Nsync!) so I was rooting for him to win. I'm a little sad to say he didn't win, Apolo won, however, he deserved it just as much so after I was a little sad for Joey, I had to cheer for Apolo. Julianne and Apolo are just adorable! There has never been a cuter couple with amazing chemistry on the show. Joey and Apolo were great to watch. Laila was even great to watch too, though I had other reasons to watch her dance (and his name is Maks - her dance partner). Maks has the sexiest hips and moves. I just love watching that man dance! Anyways, it was such a great finale I can't complain. I wanted Joey to win, he didn't, but Apolo was just as good so no hard feelings!

NCIS - I was so into the finale tonight. I was actually a little depressed the episode had to end because I have never been into an episode like I was with this one. It is one of my favorite episodes of the season and of the show in general. I loved every minute of it. I was never bored, and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time (I was sitting on the floor...but you get the picture). Tony and Jeanne are so incredibly cute together. I love Scottie Thompson (as Jeanne) on the show and I hope to see her more next season. I loved the twist at the end because the guy who said to "threaten her" was her father! I'm really interested to see where that storyline goes next season. No offense to the Director, but I wasn't interested in her "dead" father coming back. I was way more interesting in Tony and Jeanne being held hostage in a morgue (can you say creepy?). I can't wait for next season, so many storylines to deal with!

Summer begins...

It's offically summer! I took my last final today! I'm done with freshman year. I will no longer ever be a freshman. Life is good.

Do my parents know me or what!?

Okay, so my parents went to Las Vegas this week and I was really, really jealous! I asked them to bring me back souvenirs. And my parents brought me back my 3 favorite things: a pen, playing cards (that were actually used in a casino), and chocolate! I was so excited! Do my parents know me or what!? :)

Home sweet home!

Finally...I'm home for the summer! :)

Supernatural Season Finale (Part 2)

Wow...I have no words. Okay, yes I was amazing! I can't believe Dean sold his soul for Sam! and he only has one year to live (tear!). I guess I knew he was going to do something to save his brother (and hey, wouldn't we all do that to save a loved one?)...but it just kind of sucks now he only has one year! BUT...Sam will do whatever he can so nothing happens to his older brother (aww!). And how great was it to see Papa Winchester back on the show!? He didn't say anything but he did help Dean kill the Yellow-eyed-son-of-a-b*tch! FINALLY! the Yellow-eyed Demon is dead! I'm a little depressed the season is over but at least I have Season 3 to look forward to cause I know it's gonna be a great season!

6 hot air balloons?

I looked out my window and...POOF! there are 6 hot air balloons just chillin' in the sky! It's kind of random since I've never seen any here before...but there they are!

on another note...I GO HOME TOMORROW! :)

EDIT: now there's only 1 hot air balloon! holy crap those things can move!...and it's only been like 10 minutes! Maybe I just have no sense of time? or they move faster than I thought! haha

Shock of the night!

Melinda was voted off American Idol! I'm still shocked! I kind of thought Blake was gonna go (I'm a Baker girl so I'm glad he's in the final 2) but I think even he thought he was going tonight. Wow, shocker! I love Blake and Jordin so the finale is gonna be great! I want Blake to win but I won't be disappointed at all if Jordin wins...she's amazing! :)

Ian got the boot!

...on Dancing with the Stars that is. Ian Ziering was the latest to get voted off Dancing with the Stars. He was a good dancer, but it was his time to go. Joey, Laila, and Apolo are left and I gotta stay true to Nsync and vote for Joey! I've been rooting for him the entire time so hopefully he takes it all. I love Laila and Apolo though so I won't be too upset if one of them wins. I'm just happy to see Maksim still there (he's partnered with Laila)...boy is he sexy! ;)

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

I'm not normal (I know...shocker!)

-I've never gotten stitches
-I've never broken a bone
-I've never seen The Notebook <---don't hate me!
-I hated the movie Titanic
-I've moved 7 times
-I've only been in a hospital once (no major reason though)
-I hate nature, but I work outside...
-I don't like rollercoasters
-I sneeze like 4-6 times [everytime I sneeze] and if I only sneeze once or twice, people are shocked

Supernatural got renewed for a 3rd season!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'd scream it but the men in the white coats might come get for now...I'll just smile and be extremely happy! :)

Last day of classes!

Today's the last day of classes and I'm jumping for joy! Finals start tomorrow though, but I only have two (one on Thursday and one next Tuesday!)!!

I need sleep!

I went to bed at 11:50 last night and I'm pretty sure I never fell asleep! Maybe I drifted in and out a couple of times so maybe I got about an hour of sleep, maybe two. I hate those kinds of nights! You're just laying there waiting to fall asleep and it never happens! Why? I wanna sleep!

My friend is one of a kind!

She wrote me a song...

"Im going to write you a song...
Kelsey is washing a window.
I bet shes having fun
I can hear Christine in the hallway
So now I have to run
Because I think she is CRAZY
And I know you hate her too
But now im just being lazy
My laundry is still in the washer tooooooOOoooOO
Im a lazy fool!
And im singing the laundry blueeeeeesssss"

...told ya she's one of a kind haha :)

My fortune for today

I got chinese food and today's fortune was:

"A thrilling time is in your immediate future." thrilling? ;)

Weird dream...

So I had a really weird dream last night. I was in some kind of swimming/deep sea program but I was trying to escape something (I think it was one of those water planes)...anyways, we had to swim in like this dome-type thing but there were sharks! And some guy was with me (don't know who...) and he was helping me escape. Also, there were these water obstacles we had to get over to reach safety. I don't really remember anything else about it...told ya it was weird!

I thought I was the only one!

I thought I was the only college kid to have "Bad Moon Rising" by Creedence Clearwater Revival as a ringtone! Turns out, I'm not! So that makes 2 kids in the world that has I can't claim the title as my own :(

I hope this doesn't make me a bad person

A couple of days ago, I passed a guy trying to act all cool on his skateboard. He'd roll down a big hill and then slid a tray on the ground to stop. He thought he was some kind of God. As I was walking by, I actually thought to myself, "I hope he falls." And not the break-a-bone kind of fall, but just the kind of fall where he realizes he's not cool. I'm a sweet person, I really am! :)

This post has no purpose

I'm just bored, that's all. Today is Friday and normally I'd be jumping for joy but I'm not. It's not like I'm sad or anything, I'm just...mellow. I have no plans for tonight, maybe that means I should start studying for Biology? I probably will since I need to! I'm hanging out with Laura tomorrow which should be fun, but other than that, this weekend is going to suck out loud. Everyone is started to take things home. A lot of people are going home this weekend for Mother's Day, but my parents will be in Las Vegas on Sunday. I have class on Monday and Tuesday and then finals start next Wednesday, though I only have 2 finals, one on Thursday and one on Tuesday. Hopefully I'll get to go home on Friday instead of after my final of the following Tuesday. I just want to go home.

Supernatural Season Finale (Part 1)

To sum up the first part of the season finale in one simple phrase, it would be "FREAKIN' AMAZING!". I'm in total shock right now. How could they kill Sam? The better question is, how are they going to bring him BACK? And they killed off one of my favorite characters, Andy! I loved Andy and I'm really sad he's dead. And how could I not cry at the end? Sam was stabbed and Dean just held him, telling him it was going to be okay. It was such a great brother moment and anyone watching would have teared up! Ahhh, I still can't believe how amazing of an episode it was! I can't wait until next week! Dean is gonna give hell to that demon (hint on the episode name lol). Is it [next] Thursday yet? :)

Friday, May 04, 2007

I'm in the blogging type mood...

I have nothing important to say so now's your only chance to exit this blog. I feel like spilling my guts to anyone who will listen and from the last time I check on how many people actually read my blog...I'm telling no one. But that's okay, I'm not going to cry and pout like last week. So was my last lab class. Can I get a WOO-HOO? Thank you. There are only 12 days of classes left (including finals but not including weekends). I'm so excited to go home, I'm tempted to start counting down by the hour until summer break. I have somewhat of a life so I'm probably not going to do that, but it's a thought. Okay, I've rambled on long enough. I think I've lost readers, though if no one actually reads my blog to begin with, is that possible?

Thursday, May 03, 2007

So many emotions!

I currently have feelings of:

I got bit by a crab!

Okay...maybe it was a toy crab, but still! I was observing at the day care and a little boy came up to me...and stepped on my foot, but that's besides the point (good thing he was only like 15 pounds or I would've taken care of that right then and there! haha jk)...and he had a toy crab with him and it pinched my arm haha...I'm alive so the bite wasn't deadly...thank God! :)
