It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the Twilight Saga.
I love the books and movies big time.

Well that Stephenie Meyer is one sly lady!

She wrote an eclipse novella.
Yeah i know what is a novella?

I had no idea so i went to my reliable source (aka google) and found that it basically is a short story, but a little longer.

What is it about you ask?
You know Bree in Eclipse? She's the newborn vampire who's left at the end of the fight between the Cullens & wolves and Victoria's newborn army. She can't control herself and really wants to eat Bella.
Well, Stephenie made a short book about her. it's going to be called The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner!

Check out the release of the news on her website here.

The book is going to be available FREE online in the beginning of June just before the release of Eclipse movie!
Hard copies of the book are also going to be for sale and a dollar from each one sold is going to go to the Red Cross! How great is that?!

Eclipse is my favorite book in the saga. I can't wait to read this and get a different perspective on the newborn army!!

And because you can never watch it enough times, here's the trailer for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse =)

Can't wait!

Now if Stephenie would only finish/release Midnight Sun, that would be fantastic ;)

Remember Me

in my last post, I told you I was going to the movies with my Mom on friday to see Remember Me.
all I have to say is, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it.

I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it. it is a little difficult to explain the movie without giving things away.
just know, it is a story about two people who have had some sucky experiences in their pasts. they have problems in their families and go through some different things together.
but it's more than that.

there is a bigger message to the movie as a whole:
we all have an impact on other people's lives no matter what.

I will warn you though, it is a sad movie, but a good one.

my Mom came with me so I would have someone to go with. she told me she wasn't really interested in seeing it, but afterwards she told me she actually liked it!

that's all i'm going to say about it. I can't go into it further until you've seen it. after you see it and you want to discuss, email me =)

spring break

alas my spring break is coming to a close.

my school likes to have break a week earlier than many of the other colleges around here. i'm not complaining.

it's been a very relaxed, fun, and FAST break! i was quite the busy person this last week and i loved it =)

what have i done you ask?

last saturday i went to the movies with my family. my mom and i finally saw Avatar.
i know, why the heck did it take us so long to see it?? it was amazing!! i was in awe by the end. i loved loved it =D

on monday i had a much needed hang out with my friend Jacleen!
she goes to a different college and commutes from home. when i'm home it's always fun getting together with her. we laugh and chat and usually go out to lunch and sometimes we have deep talks too. monday was much needed!

wednesday my friends Shannon and Terri from school came down to my neck of the woods (literally) to go to the movies and shop! we spent forever in old navy (which by the way, i used to shop at all the time, but had a fall out with. i think i'll be shopping there more often from now on), we ate lunch at Uno's and saw Alice in Wonderland in 3D.
i really liked Alice in Wonderland. i think i would actually suggest seeing it in 2D though. while it was cool seeing the effects, it was a little distracting to the overall story, but that's just me.
so we had a good day all together!

today i am going to the movies and maybe some lunch with my Mom. we're going to see Remember Me.
i'll let you know what i think of it ;)

i have a couple more days left with no stress before i head back to school. i always love coming home for a little bit after being at school for a few weeks. i'm actually not coming home again until my birthday (it's only 2 weeks)

in other news did i tell you i set a record?
i stayed at school a whole month before going home for a weekend!
this is a major accomplishment because at college #1 i went home every weekend of the spring semester... can you tell i like college #2 better?
