Contemplation

Posted by Nynaeve in Sunshine, 14 April 2014 - * * * * * · 67 views

Why is it that I always feel like I have something to prove?

I pride myself in being outspoken and saying what I think. If I don't agree with something, I say it. If I'm not having fun, I don't bother with it anymore and if someone has a problem with it, I don't really care. But caring comes in all shapes and forms. Some people care about what other peop...

thankyou.

I've seen a few others posting their lists publicly, and since I'm being pretty obvious about one of the things I'm nominating this year, I see no harm in revealing the rest of the things I plan to nominate.

Book 14 Final Review/Series Closer

Posted by Hazeel in The Wheel of Time First Read (Book 6 onward), 06 January 2014 - - - - - - · 407 views

In the final entry of this blog on Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, I offer parting thoughts on the final book, and the series as a whole.

So I’ll just cut to the chase: what did I think of A Memory of Light? This was a momentous book, anticipated eagerly for years, and a tremendous conclusion to one of the longest, most popular series in modern fantas...

I'm Back!

Posted by Lavaliar in Lavaliar's Blog, 11 December 2013 - - - - - - · 263 views

I'm Back! Well, it's been a few months. I've been busy but I'm back to full-on WOT-Mania! At the moment I am:

1. Reading Book 4
2. Listening to Book 2
3. Re-reading the EOTW comic

Has anyone heard the news about Shannara? Elfstones of Shannara is being developed as a television series ala Game of Thrones. This should really put a fire under whoever has th...

Why I don't like: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - The Sorting Hat

Why I don't like: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - The Sorting Hat The Sorting Hat

Well let's start with what I think is the obvious thing here. The ghosts. Personally I've never much liked ghosts in stories because they tend to be used very inconsistently. Take the Harry Potter world for example, why isn't every dead witch or wizard a ghost? Why not muggles? Why not magical creatures like centaurs or unicorns? I may...

Getting Together With Friends...On A More Than Friendly Level...Finally

Posted by The Bard Babe in Ramblings of a sometimes optimist, 05 October 2013 - * * * * * · 512 views

So...I am now in a relationship with one of my best friends. Her name is Annie, and it's been coming for a long time now. I've spoken about her before, and I've always been torn about just what to do about well, her. It was because of her that I realised that I'm bisexual, and I know I rarely make good decisions when my own emotions are involved, so havi...

New Spring 05 - The Human Heart Welcome in the next episode of “Hannibal Lecter’s Guide to Human Anatomy”!

Unfortunately chapter’s title doesn’t refers to wicked necromantic rituals or even common cannibalism, it’s just about love and making babies, blah, blah. Anyway we stays with Moiraine and Siuan as they are collecting names of babies in Murandian camp. Murandians don’t make thing...

A fever

Posted by suchmadness in A Fever, 27 August 2013 - * * * * * · 266 views

I'm in the grip of a fever. Doing everything distractedly. I must get this down I must capture these images, concepts, before another comes and takes me. It's a form of madness and my mind wont let me rest.

I have worn out pencils, have lost my sharpener and I feel lost.

It started innocently enough. Oh just doing some perspective study of this woodshed...

Ooh, shiny new blog... *knocks on wall and hears empty echoing-sound*

Fill it up then shall we? :wink: *sits down to homework*

The power of a motor lifting 1000kg for a height of 6m in 15 seconds... hmmm

I'll use the formula for Power, P = W/t , t = obviously 15s, W = in joules(J) which is Nm. And as N = mg, P = mgd/t (where m = mass in kg and g = gra...

Rambling Night

Posted by Sunrise Lord in Sunrise Lord's Blog, 01 August 2013 - * * * * * · 297 views

Feeling very sad and lonely tonight... I know why, but that's no consolation. For the past week, my little cousins have been at their grandma's house (my great aunt). I love those kids like they're my own--with all my heart and soul and more. I've had an absolute blast taking them to the swimming hole down the road every day except for yesterday and t...

So, for those of you all who don't know, I was engaged to Kate.
We got married in December, but some things in life just don't work out like planned.
It was good while it lasted, and all that good stuff, but crap happens.
DM PG-13 rules apply here right? I will continue to refrain from cursing.

So yeah. Thin has just didn't work out, and it sucks, and...

First blog

I have been swept into the world of the Wheel since I got books one and two for Christmas. I am currently on book eight- path of daggers. I do sometimes find it hard to keep track of all the characters. The funny names can be hard to get to grips with. The books are epic, vast scope of plots and characters and plenty of intrigue. Rand has changed so...
