I can't wait for Brave! There's a trailer released today! :D

Hello guys!

I apologize for not updating for awhile. I think life has been busy for me with all the college trying to rip me to pieces with its constant run of homework, projects, essays, and all that jazz. That, and I haven't blogged since I've been trying to write fanfiction but failing at it even though I had like 4 or 5 chapters planned to be published and released to the public. A Harry Potter fanfiction by the way but yeah. If not that, I think it was another fandom but I'm sure it was a Harry Potter fanfiction. I think it will be posed on Fanfiction.net since I haven't used that account in a long time and I've been meaning to. That, and   I just need to get some of my school work done considering that I'm taking a few courses here and there! Oh! I would also like to mention that I'm also looking forward to Disney Pixar's Brave which has become one of the many fandom obsessions in my lifetime as I've, along with other Brave fans, have been waiting for a trailer for the movie. It's not released yet but sometime today, the trailer's supposed to be released which is something that I'm genuinely excited about! I just hope the Brave trailer has some of my favorite minor characters in it. They are the Royal Triplets: Hamish, Harris, and Hubert because I've been so obsessed with them ever since I saw the concept art of them.

If you're wondering what the heck Brave is, here's a summary from the official movie site:

"Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old  Wise Woman (Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Merida’s quest — and serving as comic relief — are the kingdom’s three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Coltrane)."

I also would like to mention that it actually comes out on June 22, 2012 but it's worth being excited at least for a sneak peek of it right? I even wrote a page on Tumblr as to why I'm exicted about it. Unfortunately, the date for the trailer to be released has been pushed back to tomorrow.

On the most random note, fandom-wise,  I still haven't gotten the Harry Potter and The Deathly Part 2 on DVD/BluRay since I don't have the money, been awfully busy with college, life, and all that jazz, and parents won't buy it for me but I can ask them if I can get it as a Christmas gift since I know they're more than willing to buy movies on DVD/Bluray during that time frame for certain. That, or on my birthday which is like a month and 2 days after New Years Day. It'd also be nice to get the last Harry Potter on DVD since I almost own all the movies with exception of the ones I need which are: The Goblet of Fire (4th movie), Half Blood Prince (6th movies), and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 (seventh movie). I think I will definitely cry alot once I get it and watch it. I'm not even joking about that by the way since I know that it's something I would be doing for certain. The Potter movies have ended and I'm (and probably will never be) over that fact. It was a great time to live too.

On the othernote, so how are you guys? Anything new with you all? I should mention that if you plan to see the Muppets in theaters that the Brave trailer as well the Toy Story short featuring Buzz Lightyear called will be featured with it so you're in for a treat apart from the Muppet movie itself of course but just a mention! I should mention that maybe I should have an icon for Brave consideriing how excited (and kind of obsessed) I am with the movie and to share that with people...hahaha. Yeah. I'm hoping to see this movie along with family especially around Thanksgiving. That, and if we're not doing anything at the moment during then. I think that's about it for now.

Signing off,

Hogwarts Houses Unity Not Hogwarts Houses Hate

As for my internet life (aside LJ, I've been busy with consumptions of homework and Tumblr), I'm getting annoyed at ethier immature Twitter users who tell you that you can't express your opinion just because you believe that Twilight and Harry Potter aren't the same. -__-;  By the way, I was just simply stating that fact and not really trying to be rude about it.  She took it the wrong way and actually lost a load of followers (including myself).  But hey, if I can't express my opinion around you just like I let you do around me, then we're not going to be friends right? 

Anyways, speaking of opinion. I'm very opinionated when it comes to one thing:  House hate (especially regarding Pottermore). I hate House hate.

I don't care if you guys have House Pride because that's normal (and tolerateable) but House hate is really not necessary, now is it? If you said no and/or agreed with that, please give yourself pats on the back.  I hate it when people diss Hufflepuff and say that House is useless. It is NOT useless nor weak.  Have you guys read about Nymphadora Tonks and Cedric Diggory? For crying out loud, they were two great characters that died but not because they were wimps.  J.K. Rowling didn't create them that way. No, while they may not have distinctable traits as Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and/or Slytherin, they're great in a sense that they have the rest of awesome qualities not mentioned.  Plus I saw a clip of a honey badger chasing after a lion/mountain lion, some kind of bird, and a cobra.  So yeah, they're pretty cool.  Heck, that was the house I wanted to be sorted when I was in Pottermore (and yes a bit more than what I was sorted in now). As my friend once said,  "If you're dissing Hufflepuff, you're dissing JK Rowling." in a sense that it's her creation that you're dissing.  By the way people who got sorted into Hufflepuff house on Pottermore have abandoned their house and I'm just shaking my head because is it necessarily to not get to know what House you're in? No, really is it.  I can understand if you don't have relateable traits and/or don't feel like it but even if you don't have the main traits, you might other traits not mentioned.  That, and if you're going to hate it,  how do I say it?  I don't know but something between the lines of,  "Please leave and go read your Harry Potter book again."  -___-  I stand for Hufflepuffs because I love not only the House itself but I love Hannah Abbott and I had a friend who loves Cedric (only in the books) who actually threw out her HP: GOF book out the window when Cedric Diggory died, crying,  "Long live Cedric!"  (Btw you will see this in one of my HP fanfic of mine).  

So yeah when I was looking to see if anybody had an extra account because my friend can't get in until October and such, I was just asking out of curiousity, well I got like responses. One of them was from a Hufflepuff hater. She said that she'll be glad to give me her account. So I looked into it and saw that one of her post said she was sorted into Hufflepuff and how much she hated it. She even said something like  "Eff" or "Screw you"  JK Rowling.  >:(   Why? Because she was simply sorted into Hufflepuff  on Pottermore. So there I was seeing her post and thinking like,  "You know as I'm flattered that you're offering me an account. But I'm going to ignore you as a means of decline because you're House hating." Yes, I'm a firm House Unity believer.  I think that Hogwarts would stand on better grounds if all the Houses can get along together.  Hence why I made the Hogwarts Houses Unity Alliance on Tumblr.  I was thinking about making a community on LJ as well but I'm not sure if I should or not.  *shrugs*  but if they have a house unity on LJ, then hooray! I'm glad. 

By the way it pleases me when I see posts on Tumblr being liked from people who said they aren't really Hufflepuffs but learn to accept them in contrast to the post not being liked by people who complain about being in Hufflepuff in Pottermore and/or people seem to ignore it.

Okay that aside, I'm sorry to have blab but I was venting/ranting about it. It just annoys me so much when it happens.  -___-  That and when people compare Harry Potter and Twilight but we'll save that for another day.

I've decided to make changes to LJ

So I was going through my LJ last night and I was looking through it, not only shaking my head at the old entries that I've already typed and published because I realized in doing so, I read through what I realized was a side of me that I didn't like and that was the fact because my older entries made me seem as though I was weird (in a bad way type of weird not the good weird), immature, and even at times, admittedly: close-minded, narrow-minded, ignorant, rude, conceited, selfish, and alot of traits that I could go and on about and while I'm not a mean person at all, whatsoever, in my defense, I'll just say that I was young and I'm still learning. I also would like to say that I may be older than most of my peers but having your childhood stripped away from the orphanage can take alot from you. Trust me, being an orphan, at my age, wasn't easy and I lived through it. That, and I feel it was one of the consequences that I had. That, and I had no idea what I was doing but you know what I'm learning. So I felt that because of that, I decided to make alot of post that were public now be private because not only am I working on those and putting more into those (more like adding things I wish I had add on as well as comments) but also because I wanted to restart and mostly organize this blog.  I've had it since 2007 and that's been a very, very long time if you don't mind me saying. I've kept this blog way longer than my other ones on Tumblr and Blogspot as this is my favorite platform to blog things on.  That, and I'll also be transferring all of my fanfiction and creative writing entries (apart from writer's block, that stays here) that I wrote on hereover to my new journal which is scriptingbeauty

I also have to finish linking my moodthemes since I just changed them. I don't care if it's not the best moodtheme around but it's not made by me to be honest. It's actually by:

I'll make my mood themes when I have the time but that's something I have rarely these days with college, life, and fandoms all catching up to me. So yeah. I also will be going on a Friend editting spree and that is where I decide to keep and/or cut people from my friends list especially ones where I haven't interacted with them in ages or if not interacted, never have. To be honest, I don't have many friends who comment on my journal anymore since a whole lot of them are inactive and or have forgotten about me and decided to cut me off their list but it's okay. That, and I'm bound to get rid of at least a few and also make friends with newer people I had the intent of being friends that I found on LJ but hadn't the chance to do so. So I'm hoping the Friend part of this livejournal works out well for myself to be honest. In addition, I will also be making a new 'FO' banner and if not, I'll be getting one for my LJ for time being and make a new complete journal entry for it. That, and lastly I also been meaning to delete one of my icons since I realized I don't like it and instead add another one. Oh well might as well do that. There's lots to changed, deleted, sorted, tweaked, and whatnot.

I think that wraps up for this entry for now. I have to go make changes, deletion, tweaks, and all those kind of things. If you want me to still be your friend or vice-versa, please let me know and I'll keep you on my LJ friends list. Otherwise, thanks for reading this entry if you have!

Signing off for now,
Anni

Neville x Hannah

Because I'm weird when it comes to Harry Potter Movies....

Okay you know how they had/have many extras in a movie like in school setting per say one of those cliche romantic comedies set in high school, work place, and/or college, right? Okay so bear with me and then you watch something like Harry Potter and you're not only wowed by the film but you watch it multiple times to feel like you're there at Hogwarts and/or just enjoying it when you notice some actress in the background looks at the camera or some random actor who's playing a Hogwarts student is staring at Hermione Granger (in this case, Justin Finch-Fletchy did so in the Chamber of Secrets). Okay, so you get the picture.

So  ever since I've became obsessed with Neville x Hannah shipping. I decided to watch Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire again since Charlotte Skeoch was in both of those movies along with Matthew Lewis of course (well duh, he plays Neville, Anni lol).  Anywho...I'm going to take you on what I call the....

*drum roll*

(long title) Anni's Observant When It Comes To Background Watching In This Case, It's The Hogwarts In Harry Potter Movies: Neville x Hannah Edition, Let's Take A Tour Shal We!?!

(short title): Anni's Observant Background Watching Tour: Hogwarts Edition #1: Hannah Abbott and Neville Longbottom

Whatever you want to call it.

Anyways, I'll be posting this soon, hopefully but I'm so excited to show you what I've observed. I could also give you, Neville x Hannah fans, some ideas! ;D

Teach? Are you certain that I could?

So I was in the middle of writing of something regarding my stories one fine day when my dad exclaims out loud, "Yay, I can teach!" because, during then, he was watching Obama's Special Report (basically one of his many speeches) about making jobs for people in America.  Teachers was one of the jobs that he had been explaining and talking about.  Of course, I'm not sure if my dad can be a teacher but I don't know if I should say that considering he's taught many important things to me like history (when he's not being bias), English (more like persuasive writing) to Sex Ed so I could see him easily being one, specifically one with dealing with computers and possibly English or History because he tends to talk not only about the news but also the past and says things that I find would be particuarly interesting in a classroom setting. I am confident that he could probably work with something pertain computers since he's been working with Computers and IT for like about 25 years which is quite alot for somebody like him. It's also something I admired too!  So I'm all for it if he does teach elementary-high schoolers, a computer job. So then my parents were discussing about my dad being a teacher (okay, that I can deal with) so then I hear my mom saying, "You can teach [insert my name here]." Wait what? My answer was something between the lines of: "No, I can't." because I found it to be true. I also thought she was kidding when she said those words or at least between the lines of that simply because if there's one thing I am confident about, it is the fact that I cannot nor do I know how to teach people things. Okay, fine, not really teach but teach a subject is what I mean by teaching things.  I don't know where she gets the fact that I can be a teacher or even teach other people things apart from my words of wisdom and me trying to sort out other people's problem. I tell her that and she's like, "Why not?" and I simply told her the answer that is the best that I could come up with the time: "Because I'm not good at teaching." I mean those were the only words that I can think up of when she asked me. I don't know where or how or why she suggested that I teach. It's not that I'm unappreciative that she brought it up or anything. So please don't misunderstand me to do just that. In honesty, I am appreciative that she did actually. It's just I don't know what I'd teach even considering I'm not sure if I'm an expertise in anything other than feeling like a background character still trying to sort out through life's journey and deal with unpleasant things like. I'm not good at explaining, summarizing, paraphasizing, emphazing, and doing all of those things that a teacher could do. That, and I have to make sure I can research and try to think alot before I can get into my assignments and turning it in or something like that. So there's one reason that I cannot and never thought of myself as a teacher.

Another reason is because I don't like public speaking and I know that if I teach, I am required, in one way or another, somewhere in my lifetime, to do public speaking. It doesn't have to be in front of a huge mass audience in a school's gymnasium campaigning for a rights movement (and while I refuse to speak about what rights I support and don't support or pertake it, I don't know if I could anyway) or just doing something that requires the school to get involved in some kind of school funded or spirited type of activity. Come again, that's probably for the staff who's willing to help students or get involved with student type of events. So yeah.  Oh right. What was I say? I think I was randomly babbling alittle there. I guess I was going to say was something about public speaking. Right. Public speaking. So, the best grade that I got in a Speech class, was a C but on my speeches? A solid B. Phew. I wanted to pass that class so bad since I didn't want to retake it. You have no idea. But anyway, yes, that's how wonderful I am at speaking publicy and dealing with the masses. I cannot go and teach students even if I knew there was something they needed to learn and know. In honesty, I'm not good with speaking because every time I speak, I often feel that I have a hard time at condensing or being articulate with the words especially when I know I have somewhat of a hard time putting it all into a sentence or two together or at times, even, my words tend to get jumbled and mixed around so it can easily often puzzle others. I can try and ask question to somebody about a topic and they'll react with a baffled, "What?" considering that's happen to me often times. I don't know how the children, teens, or any adult would be able to handle me when I try to teach others something because I'd be a rambling and stumbling old hag. I know for a fact that I'm also kind of slow but not because I'm dumb or anything but  I think it's because I'm slightly austic or I have a form of PTSD or post tramautic stress disorder, and I don't know about you but something about it, unless there's a miracle that can heal me or let me, I cannot teach.  I can probably blab something I know about exceptionally well but often I know and have always felt like I need to educate myself more because I know things but I don't know how to explain things without having a computer or a word processor in front of me with tons of ways to paragraphing about what I want to convey to the masses as I often do think about lots of things for genuinely long periods of time.  Sometimes that could take me to articulate probably in what? 5 years. Yeah.

I mean if I ever teach, I could possibly teach them about how to read and easy Kindergarterner stuff.  Of course, otherwise, I don't see myself teaching anything unless God gave me that gift (and that's just what I believe that he would do for me, personally and in honesty) but so far I have no idea what gift it is because I don't know what I could ever teach. I'm not sure what my gift is even in life as I plan to become a writers like C.S. Lewis and J.D. Salinger.  If I had to teach, I'd speak in the pages of story or book like all the great authors do (God, C.S. Lewis,  Nathaniel Hawthorne, J.K. Rowling, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, and are some examples I know of that are exposed and people know of) considering I feel like I do better also speaking online because I have a computer to help release that bundle of nerves around people in real life although it doesn't exactly get rid of how I can communicate better without something in front of my face in real life.  These are just some of the reasons, that my parents should know  or do know about now of why I cannot teach. I don't know if I can teach anything unless it's a small thing like tying shoelaces, riding a bike, doing some small gif tutorial, or even a few things or two about a game that I'm good at, or small things like that. I know I can work with those for certain but me, a teacher and me teaching anything apart from what I mentioned? Yeah. I don't think I can do it for sure. Maybe it's doubts casted in my train of thought right now but if I can and do ever teach something apart from life's easy lessons that I can teach a small children than maybe I'll eat up my words someday. That, and if I'm suddenly gifted with the ability to teach for now but for now, I doubt that I can teach let alone, feel confident enough to speak in front of an audience. I also wish I could have the courage to just that.

Teaching woes aside, I guess I like to mention that I have major plot bunnies scampering within my head but I'll save that for another day.  I would like to point out that due to this, I made my writing journal which is scriptingbeauty also known as my creative writing journal. I use it to not only write but plan out my ideas (usually) and go more in-depth with more of my fanfiction, original story ideas, and other things pertaining to that.So if you're ever interested in that, please go check out that writing journal of mine! I'd love it if you do and could because I put so much into that journal. Whenever I can, that is.

EDIT:

Just thought I'd mention that I did an assignment for my online College Success Skills class (which is one of the easiest class I took and actually like because it's not only teaching one to be productive but also it's really useful too) and guess what? One of my classmates said that I could teach. Wait what? Teach me? Oh dear goodness. I don't know why I'm mentioning this but I found it quite perculier though. Oh! This was also after I checked the discussion board online (since we have it for online classes). Whoa. Is that a sign or coincidence? Either way, I'm feeling slightly pleased but also confused about this. Whoa. Just whoa.

New LJ Icon Rule For Myself starts TODAY!

So I have a habit of finding an LJ communtiy with pretty, shiny, graphics made icon. The only problem? I don't remember where I took them from, I don't comment on them, and I don't credit them. Plus when I remember to, I can't remember where I find them. So my mission on Livejournal (and in the future for myself) is that I need to find all these LJ icon users and credit them for their icons. I feel like it's not right using their icons and not putting credit when is needed. That or I can create my own but I'm bad at making graphics. I'm such a newbie that I rely heavily on tutorials and such.  If I can find, get the hang of how I make icons and all, then I might be able to make my own, and feel good about it. For now, I use other people because I love their graphics artwork.

So here's a rule I'm placing on myself. NO EXCEPTIONS. I DON'T CARE I'LL HAVE TO DO IT AND USE IT AS A NEW HABIT.

Reminder to self:

1. Always comment when snagging. 

2. Always credit the user who made the LJ icons. (Unless they tell you that credit is not needed).

3. If you can't do it, don't take it. Simple enough, really?

I'm human and I'm sorry if I'm doing this. I hope the icon users forgive me. It's not my intention to steal. I do feel bad about it.  Anyways, another thing I need to do on here is make friends but nobody really reads my journal and talks to me, plus I don't know what to say to other people but I always told myself, "COMMUNICATION IS A TWO-WAY STREET!"  So yeah...that's it really.

Ending this post with IMPORTANT! KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE! tagged to it.

Ravenclaw Pride

Hey again...it's been a long while!

Hey guys. I'm so sorry for not updating my LJ. I've been busy plus I don't usually log on LJ anymore...that is until I saw a community that attracted to me. So yeah, anyways, I'm also busy with loads of college work then summer came and I got swept away in this site known as Twitters, Tumblr, and Deviantart. Then again, I haven't gone to DeviantArt much and I just returned to Twitter, like a month ago or something. But it's not to say I haven't forgotten this place. Oh I haven't. I'm glad to be back here. Anyways, so many things have happened:  I've graduated high school, I went through my first two years in college (and survived), I found out who my friends were and weren't, I've dealt with depression, I found a new church to go to, I'm a Junior in college now, and I'm still obsessed with Harry Potter.  As for my well-being,  I'm doing much pretty good.  I mean I had family issues and earlier friendship issues but I'm learning how to deal as well as relying on God to help me with it. So yeah, this college semester, I'm just trying to tackle two college classes and see if I can get into Pottermore.  Apparently Errol keeps forgetting that I'm supposed to be a Hogwarts student too.  (I kid but I can pretend that I am, can't I?)  

On the random note: did I mention I just started shipping Neville x Hannah. I'm so glad JK Rowling paired up BAMF Neville Longbottom with sweet Hufflepuff Hannah Abbott. They're so cute and perfect with each other. I just found a cute, small LJ community with them (one of the reasons I'm coming back to LJ) and I was like, "Awwwww! I'm so joining this!"  I even found some icons I like and giving credit to the lovely person that made them. <3  :)

Anyways I'm planning to make a come back and see if I can submit a fanfic or something to a community. So yeah, hi.

*waves*

Anyways, that's all you'll be hearing from me for now. Publicy.

See ya later!
