I am going to keep this LJ entry as something to refer back to. I'm going to update it periodicly, but not make it a new entry. I want to try and keep a list of all the books that I read this school year, both for school and not. I'm just curious. I don't know how good I'll be at actually updating it, but we shall see. This will NOT include fanfictions that I read. This will also NOT include articles that I read.

This list is started as of approximately September 15th

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
Breaking Dawn by Stephnie Meyer
Alta by Mercedes Lackey
The Omnivore's Delimma by Michael Pollan
Why Some Like it Hot by Gary Paul Nabhan

Comment and I'll give you a letter; then you have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. Afterwards, post this in your journal and give out some letters of your own.

D

1. Dragons
I really like stories about dragons. Dragons are also frequently associated with fantasy books which I read whenever I feel like I can afford to read books that are pure pleasure.

2. Diet Peach Ice Tea
I've always been a huge fan of peach ice tea. Lately all that I want to drink is ice tea. However, almost no one carries regular non-diet peach ice tea. Sobe makes my favorite, Sobe Lean Peach Ice Tea. My second favorite is snapple's ice tea... which you can sometimes find in non diet.

3. Dogs
Dogs are one of my favorite animals. I'd really love to have a dog but I don't have the time to properly care for one while I'm in college. Whenever I come home and I can snuggle with my Roxy girl I do. She follows me around like a little black shadow.


4. Dorks
I can never remember the difference between dorks, geeks and nerds so I always lump them together as one group. I've always loved dork/geek/nerds. I like boys that I can talk to and have an actual conversation with. Dorks are good.

5. Dark
I love sitting in mostly dark or dark rooms. I don't need or want a lot of light unless I'm reading or doing blackwork.

6. Deep colors
OK. I'm cheating on these a little bit, but i'm gettin the point. I like rich tones, deep jewel colors. I love almost every jewel tone color... I can't think of one I don't actually.

7. Dreams
This one is two fold. I like to have dreams of the future. I like thinking about what's happening. I also enjoy remembering the actual dreams that I have.

8. Dancing
I really like odd style dancing. Like I don't want to do styles of dancing that are "in" I like to do dancing where I'm just ... moving. Just enjoying the music and doing whatever it bids me to do.

9. Doing
I like having something to do. I need to do things with my hands. I need to be thinking about something. I like to be busy.

10. Danger
I don't like to be in danger ... but I do like to watch or read things where someone else is in danger. I love action movies. I love books where the main character is in constant danger... so long as she gets out of it in the end.

EDIT:
11. Draco
I was reminded, rightly so, that i do loves me the Draco. So I am adding another answer. I have to say that Draco is far more intersting when he's attached to Harry... maybe Severus, but mostly he belongs to harry... unless Severus has stolen Harry

People put entirely too much faith in the idea of peace. Why is peace always the goal that we work toward? How many Miss America’s do we have to hear have the same dream? A vapid, nasally voice, “I wish for world peace.” How does it make sense that peace will solve all the world’s woes?  Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think that war is always the answer. Or that blood shed is always the answer. Or that blood shed is always the answer or that we should go about solving all problems with violence, but the goal to completely rid the world of war is not only unrealistic, unhealthy and unnecessary. War and conflict has a purpose and it’s value to humans should not be over looked.
 During war times it becomes critical that we move invention along. The stress and need to improve on what is already around urges us to create new things. Take, for example, the invention and perfection of u-boats (underwater boats AKA submarines) that were created during WWII. The pressure of needing a better way to fight the war encourage scientists and engineers to work on the u-boats and to make the usable.
 War is also a natural way of thinning out the population. Birth rates are higher than death rates and one way nature helps us to keep our numbers down is through war. It sucks that people you know and love go to war but that doesn’t mean they died an un-necessary death. The conflict that they died in may be a ridiculous one, but their death was not wasted. Their death made more space for the humans and other species that survived them.
 Beyond the advantages that come about during war times there is the simple fact that humans would have a very hard time avoiding war. Humans are aggressive in one way or another.

 Beyond the advantages that come about during war times there is the simple fact that humans would have a very hard time avoiding war. Humans are aggressive in one way or another. We can have all the high minded thoughts and ideals of talking through our differences but sometimes words just don’t get across.

 Look at dictators like Hitler. Do you really think he would have stopped what he was doing if the US had shaken her metaphorical finger at him and given him a stern talking to? I very highly doubt it. Sometimes words are not enough and action is truly a legitimate response.

 Truth be told, our species won’t suffer because a few thousand or even a few million people are killed. We would hardly become an extinct species; especially because we, by and large, send men to fight our wars. We really only need a hand full of men and a few women that are capable of breading to keep a species alive. Men are more expendable than women.

 Cutting war from our lives is a stupid plan and I don’t think that the goal should be peace. The day we have “the war to end all wars” will be the day we’ve destroyed our species in one way or another.

It's 5:30 in the morning... I'm supposed to get up in 15 mintues for a long hard day of work at the rennisance faire. I've had 3 hours of sleep... I haven't written anything in ages and nothing I've really ever posted.

So I made this LJ so that I could have a harry potter-centric journal. This is it. Hopefully this will make me finish all the half baked fics that I have in my head/computer and actually post them somewhere...
