The path to the Heroes & Thieves.
I went to the midnight premier of Paranormal Activity 3 the other night, and lets just say it was worth it. I’ve been a HUGE fan from the beginning, so needless to say I loved the 3rd. Toby has got to be my best friend… that is, as long as he doesn’t haunt my ass. I was very disappoint that all the parts in the trailers that looked AMAZING, weren’t in the movie. The ending kind of left me a little speechless. And when it was over, I was like “…wuuuuuuut?!”. I felt as though it was really short. SPOILER ALERT: I loved the part when Toby pulls Katie up by her hair. I laughed so much I got tears. And also when they did Bloody Mary, I was sure I was going to have an anxiety attack. (Bloody Mary is a fear of mine.) But all in all, I loved it and would recommend it to anyone who has seen the first two!

I just finished “Lost In Time” by @MelissadelaCruz. I’m actually really happy that I’m just now finishing it, at least I stretched it out a little. I actually didn’t get this when it first came out. I was broke, sadly enough. But I was super glad when I found out that you had to buy “Lost In Time” to get it signed by Melissa at the meet and greet. Needless to say, I bought it, got it signed (picture above), and was extremely excited. Melissa de la Cruz is one of my favorite authors and the Blue Blood series is one of my favorite series. I like the fact that it isn’t all about romance like all the other vampire novels out today. There is so much mystery and action, but yes, there still is some romance. TEAM JACK ALL THE WAY. But “Lost in Time” was amazing. I never imagined how it turned out. I don’t want to spoil anything for those who haven’t read it yet, so I wouldn’t give anything away (hopefully). All I can say is: I ‘m really starting to love Mimi as she grows into a nice, more gentle (yet still the same ol’ Mimi) soul and “oh em gee” at the ending. Like, woah. I never saw that coming. Also, I love the fact that we get to see Allegra’s back story with her and Ben and Charles. Even though she isn’t in the series a whole lot, I really adore her character. So I’m excited for the next installment, “The Gates of Paradise (Jan. 2013), and hope that Schuyler, along with her friends, can save the vampire world from certain destruction.

I heard this song today and thought of @ItsDavidRuiz. Instantly. I don’t know why, but I’ve been so sentimental lately. But today is a special day, so I have an excuse. I haven’t heard this song in AGES, but it came on the radio and I busted out singing. I had the biggest smile the whole time because I just couldn’t stop thinking about David. I want him to know that because of him, I’m a better person. For life. I’m so lucky.

A year ago today I met @ItsDavidRuiz; the love of my life. Just the thought of this completely blows my mind. A whole year ago today him and I were together, in person, for the first time. I had complained that he needed to come down and see me and one day he randomly decided to. I remember being SO nervous. I hadn’t even dressed for the occasion. I wore exactly what I’m wearing in the picture above (I even have my black shorts on). He picked me up from my friend’s house after school and we went and sat by the river for what seemed like ages. He made fun of me because I wouldn’t save this bee in the rive. Like, what do you want from me?! I would have either fallen in or gotten stung. Either way, that poor bee was going to die. Also, this day last year was so freakin’ hot. I remember because I had worn my black cardigan and I was sweatin’ up a storm. Today its FREEZING. After all of that, I made a complete FOOL of myself. We went to Taco Bell to grab dinner and on the way out they have this bell you can ring for excellent service. Well, I rang it. And it just so happened to decided to jump off the wall the same time I did. David just left me in there as everyone stared at me. UGH. Then we went to Target. We were in the card aisle. I was walking down it and noticed one that caught my eye, so I turned around real fast. Next thing I know, I’m laying flat on my face on the cold floor. David just laughing away. It was so embarrassing, even though I wouldn’t admit that to him. I never wanted that day to end. It might have been awful on my part, but it was one of the most magical days ever. Even though I don’t get to spend much time today with David, I want him to know that I’ll be thinking about him all day. I love you.

Sunday’s Season 2 premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead shattered basic cable ratings records. The 90-minute episode drew 7.3 million total viewers, becoming the strongest telecast for any drama in basic cable history among two key demos. The zombie drama based on Robert Kirkman’s long-running comics drew 4.8 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic, 4.2 million adults 25-54 and registered a 4.8 household rating, shattering a nearly 10-year-old basic cable record among the demos for a single drama telecast. How amazing is this?! This goes to show one of two things: 1. they have the best, most supportive fans ever & 2. the show is fucking badass.

Today is @ItsDavidRuiz’s 22nd birthday. When I think about it, its so crazy. I wasn’t around to celebrate his birthday last year, we met two days after, but I feel as thought I was. I feel like I’ve been apart of him for my whole life. He means that much to me. I wasn’t able to give him the best birthday ever, he was at school, sick, then went home to his family. When he got home he still wasn’t feeling well so I felt bad. There was nothing I could do for him today. But yesterday, I took him to The Galleria and I bought him Taylor Swift’s new perfume “Wonderstruck”. You should have seen his face, it was full of excitement. I’m glad I at least got to give him that. I want him to know how much I love him. That’s the best birthday present I think I could give him allowing how broke I am. I do, though, I love him. SO MUCH. I can’t wait to spend every other birthday of his life with him. Once again David, Happy Birthday!!! <3

So lately I’ve been completely CRAZY about these two boys. Which is kind of funny because I honestly don’t like male singers. Definitely not country males singers either. I tend to stick with piano pop/rock driven females. But these two have broken that exception, that’s how amazing they are. I even went out and got there CDs, I would definitely suggest buy/downloading them. Both Hunter Hayes and Cody Simpson are talented; voices, instruments, and lyrics. Did you know Hunter Hayes wrote or co-wrote ALL his songs and plays ALL the instruments? Crazy, I know. Both of these boys are inspirational and I’m proud to say I’m a fan. <3

Would everyone please take a minute out of their day to help me win Hunter Hayes “Most Wanted Contest”? All you have to do is click the link above and fill out your birthday & zip code then either share it via Twitter, Facebook, or Myspace. Please help me out, I would be really happy! I love him and would be SO grateful to win. Also, could you please take the time out to reblog and spread the word? Thank you all so much. <3

Talking Dead. I like the fact that for this season of The Walking Dead, AMC brought around a LIVE talk show afterwards. It could possibly answer some questions about the episodes and go behind the scenes. Also, the fact that you can tweet in OR even call in questions is genius. It makes us, the audience, more involved with the show. So I love this idea. I just hope they get better comedians on the show. So I can say that along with The Walking Dead, I&#8217;m excited to see Talking Dead. I just wish it were longer.

OH. MY. GOD. The season premier went way beyond how good I was hoping it would be. Personally, I thought it was slow, but very needed to see how everyone is coping and dealing with this. I don&#8217;t want to say anything and spoil it for the West Coast, but I&#8217;m definitely excited to see the rest of the season. Will we find Morgan and his son? Will we learn what the doctor whispered in Rick&#8217;s ear? Will anyone die? A lot of questions I can&#8217;t wait to see answered! SO excited for the next episode.
