Showers are probably the worst thing in all of history. Although some insane people (my dad) love and take pleasure in showers, I think they are a big waste of time. It takes at least 30 minutes out of your day, and depending on who you are, you have to take a shower every other day. EVERY OTHER DAY. Thankfully, I go to a school where is it somewhat socially acceptable to not shower for a week at a time. My school (an all-girls Catholic one at that) also participates in No Shave November. That is for the people who need a reason to not shave for a month. You would be surprised about how many people participate. I am not one of them.
The whole process of showering is just exhausting! You have to get in the shower after you get the shower to the PERFECT temperature or else you will freeze or burn! That is laborious alone, but then you have to add the washing of the hair, conditioning of the hair, the shaving, the cleansing, the washing of the face, etc. I is tiring, and to put it blatantly, pathetic! I don't know how my dad does it, but he makes time in his schedule every single day to take a shower.
I don't know how you do it, Dad, but I admire your consistency. I could never do that, nor would I want to.

Screenplay or TV Show

I think I want to write a movie or a show. Not a play though... just a movie or a show. I guess I was bumped into this mood when I was figuring out my cast list for The Goddess Test in one of my previous posts. I really want it to be fantasy, like, witches. Not wizards with magic wands, but witches that can do magic in their head will spells and chants. It is to be inspired by The Secret Circle (which I loved, and still do love! I wish it wasn't cancelled!), but with different characters and it starts with one person that knows he/she is a witch, preferably a girl, and she has to convince the other 4 witches that they are witches too. She/he has to do this without revealing herself to anyone other than those other 4. She found out about her powers with a family book that all witch families have, and so on and so forth. Eventually, relationships and friendships form. I am leaning towards a TV show, though. I am excited!

What's Eating Gilbert Grape and Nail Biting

I watched this movie last night. I was left with confusing thoughts, but one thing was for sure. Leonardo DiCaprio is phenomenal. It is impeccable how he can just transform into these characters with the blink of an eye. Especially the fact that he also perfected the hand gestures of mentally-ill people. I know this because my neighbor is mentally-ill and sometimes over the summer is go over there and play with him and his younger brother. His name is Connor and he is truly the sweetest little boy you could ever meet! The other main actor who played Gilbert Grape was Johnny Depp. He was a little confusing, and although I love his acting, I don't think this role was for him.

On a different note, my nail biting is becoming a serious problem. I really want to grow long nails, but it is just so hard to stop a habit, especially a habit such as this. My nail are horrendously short! I really need to find a way to stop it because it is probably becoming unhealthy. I pretty much have, like, no nails. This needs to stop!

Books and Movies

Do you ever read a book and think, "This would be SUCH a good movie!" Well, I get that ALL the time. I legitimately have about 40 different movie ideas that just comes from books. Sometimes, I even plan out the actors that would play the characters. I mean, some books are just perfect! Of course, most of them are romance books because that is my favorite genre to read. But there is a certain series that involves Gods and Goddesses (and no, not the Lightning Thief) that I think would just be really cool to film. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter begins the Goddess Test trilogy. It is about a girl who moves to a new town that her mother grew up in because she wants to die in the place she was raised. This girl's name is Kate and she starts to go to school. There is a mean girl named Ava there that tricks her into going to a "bonfire" when Ava trips and falls into a river and drowns. A man comes up to Kate near the river and asks her what she would do to save Ava. Kate says, "Anything." Then the man tells her to read the tale of Persephone, Hades' wife from a Greek myth, and decide after that. Of course, she says yes, but does decide. Therefore, Ava dies. Then Kate freaks out and says okay, but it is too late. The man promises that he can help Kate's mother live longer. Kate says yes and she is off to a mansion. There, her new life begins.

Just saying, I read this about a year ago, and I wrote this from memory so it may not be correct.

For actresses in this one, I was thinking:
Ava/Aphrodite: Ashley Olsen
Walter/Zeus: Johnny Depp
Calliope/Hera: Lana Parilla
Diana/Demeter: Julie Andrews
Henry/Hades: (not sure, but) Liam Hemsworth. He might be a little too attractive. He would have to be kind, but nervous and compassionate, and I'm not sure he would be good enough.
Sofia/Hestia: Meryl Streep
Dylan/Ares: Zac Efron
Phillip/ Poseidon: Patrick Dempsey
James/Hermes: Logan Lerman
Irene/Athena: Jayma Mays
Theo/Apollo: Chris Hemsworth, or would it be weird to have to siblings in a movie?
Ella/ Artemis: Sarah Hyland
Nicholas/Hephaestus: Darren Criss (come on! I had to!
Xander/Dionysus: Tom Felton

 Kate: Jennifer Lawrence or Jenna Dewan-Tatum!
(I couldn't chose just one!)

I really do enjoy this book, but there is a scene at the end where everyone is in the same scene. I am worried that there would be just TOO MUCH attractiveness in one room. Anyway, see ya!
