Potterheads, This One’s For You

That’s all, folks. The Harry Potter series has drawn to a close, one which (I thought, at least) did justice to the book and to the characters. I would know, because I have now seen the movie twice– once in New York and once in Ohio. It made me laugh, and it made me cry, like any good movie should do. I cheered for Harry and shuddered at Voldemort. (really, how creepy is it that he has no nose?) Needless to say: go. see. it.

It seems like the question everybody wants to know the answer to is “Who’s your favorite character?” The obvious thing for me to say in response to this would be Hermione, and, yes, I do see a lot of myself in her. By the way, my favorite Hermione line, and one that I can almost hear myself saying, is “You could have gotten us killed! Or worse, expelled!” Classic.

Anyway, my favorite character is actually Draco Malfoy. Why do I like Harry’s Number 2 enemy, you ask? He’s torn between what he knows is the right thing to do, and what his parents want. His struggle is more evident in the books than in the movies, though, which dissapointed me.

A close second would be Severus Snape, but if I say why I’ll spoil the movie, so go see it yourself! After that… probably Ron Weasley. He’s hilarious.

Happy movie-watching, Potterheads!

I’m Baaaaack!

That’s right, people, the slightly crazy teenager is back on the blogosphere bandwagon! I stopped this blog before because I had basically zero readers. Actually, I probably still don’t have any readers, but whatevs. This blog is for my (and your, if anybody is reading this) entertainment, not for a feature in Teen Vogue. Although, that would be awesome… But that’s beside the point.

How did this little blog of mine start up again, you ask? I had thought of doing it again for a while, but I couldn’t find any good ideas. Then, I began writing in my journal, and I realized that the entry was starting to sound a LOT like a blog post. So, I made it into one, which I will publish in a few days. First, though, I just wanted to introduce you old timers and new readers to the blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope all of you very few people enjoy the blog, and remember to comment below or email me at slightlycrazyteenager@yahoo.com.

Help Me to Decide!

Hey there, readers of my little blog! So, I’m not really sure what the bulk of my readers are interested in. I thought I’d make a little poll so I could find out. Please answer honestly. I will use these results to decide where I’ll go with this little blog. Thanks!

P.S. email me at slightlycrazyteenager@yahoo.com

An Apology and an Invitation

Let me preface this post by apologizing to all of you, my readers. I haven’t posted in a VERY long time, and I’m sorry. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

This post isn’t really a post, per se, more an invitation for discussion.

My questions for you are:What would you like to read about? What do you like? What can I improve?

Please comment with your thoughts. Thanks!

P.S. I promise I’ll make another post within the week (and a real one this time)

Pet Peeves

Everybody has a pet peeve. The one annoying thing that irks them more than any other. I have a few, and I thought I’d share them with you today.

Pet Peeve #1: Bumpy Fingers
Okay, the title sounds weird, but let me explain. I HATE when I rub my fingers together, and they’re not smooth. Not like I’ll freak if I have a scab or something. More like… you know when your fingers get all pruny and stuff? It’s things like that which make me shudder.

Pet Peeve #2: Bad Radio Karaoke
I’m willing to bet that most of you share this pet peeve. Your just sitting there, perhaps in the car, perhaps not, listening to one of your favorite songs. Then all of a sudden, some terrible singer starts singing right along, maybe even LOUDER than the actual song. I want to hear the artist sing it. Not you.

Pet Peeve #3: Reading Over Shoulders
Don’t you just hate it when your trying to look at your Facebook news feed, read a book, type an email, text, or even write a blog post and somebody’s just standing there, watching you? It’s annoying when my little brother does it, but just plain creepy when a stranger does. I’m like “Yessss?”

Pet Peeve #4: Stupid Questions/People
This one doesn’t need much of an explanation. Some people are just plain STUPID, and it sort of makes me want to strangle them. Not that I would ever actually do that, of course…

Pet Peeve #5: Is it an iPod or a Radio?
It’s super annoying when somebody doesn’t realize that they make earbuds for a reason. Sometimes I wonder how people with this annoying habit still have functional eardrums.

Pet Peeve #6: Having to Repeat Myself
I hate it when I explain something, and then five seconds later somebody asks me a question about what I just said. Pay attention, people!

There they are!!! Comment if you will, like, rate, or tell your friends, and don’t forget to email for notifications whenever I make a new post ๐Ÿ™‚

Quote of the Day

I love quotes. My bedroom wall is covered in them. Why do I like them so much? There’s something really amazing about the fact that something you or I could say, completely unscripted, could be such an influence on somebody else. So, today I thought I’d share with you one of my favorites.

“I can’t even enjoy a blade of grass unless I know there’s a subway handy, or a record store, or some other sign that people do not totally regret life.” ~Frank O’Hara~

Deep, huh? That’s the power of words!

I created an email for this blog. It’s slightlycrazyteenager@yahoo.com. Email me (it’s confidential, of course) if you have any comments, questions, or ideas. Also, just let me know and I will notify you when I write a new post, until the subscription widget starts working.


New Year, New Blog

As dumb as it may seem, every year I make a fresh list of New Years Resolutions. When I was younger, there were about twenty of themโ€”way more than my tiny brain could keep up with. Iโ€™m older now (though still with a tiny brain), so this year I only have one: start a blog. And here I am, on the second day of the year, doing it!

Iโ€™m sort of technically impaired, as you can probably tell from the state of this website. I also have practically no idea of where to start (story of my life). Since I had no clear vision, I decided to make this blog about anything and everything that randomly finds its way into my mind, hence the title. One day I might share with you my favorite songs, the next a quote, and maybe even a description of some weirdo I saw on the subway. Who knows? And, to keep it interesting, I might even offer some โ€“ gasp โ€“ writing advice.

Sound interesting? You can even subscribe to this using the little widget-thingy. Once I finally figure out how to set it up, that is.

Adios, amigos! And happy new year!
