I Can Only Be So Bored

Obviously, as mentioned above, I'm currently bored out of my freaking mind. I figure I could solve that problem by ranting about myself (which unfortunately sounds a lot more conceited when typed than it did in my head). I always feel awkward rambling on about myself, but isn't that the purpose of a blog? (Also, I feel funny typing that, as I've never actually had a blog before. Not a real one anyway. Just the little random one that comes with MySpace or whatever.) That's what you do, right? Talk about yourself and express your random opinions on things that only people on the internet can find interesting or understand or whatever?

Or maybe the point is because everyone is secretly really bored, and this is kind of amusing. I don't know. I've been at it for five minutes. I am in no way a blogging expert, though I'm beginning to wonder if it's uncool to rant about blogging... in your blog.

Runa made me get this. So if you consider it a waste of valuable interneting space, well, it's my fault for being not so clever and witless, but that's besides the point. I gave into peer pressure. Our conversation basically went like this:

Runa: Hey, Ashley, I've got this cool Book Blog and this author used my review and it's awesome and stuff!
Me: NO WAY! Ahhh that's so cool! Blah blah blah, more rambles on how cool it is.
Runa: You should get one!
Me: Really? I should?
Runa: Yes!
Me: Well, okay.

It's not a book blog. Not yet. I don't know if I'd be a good book reviewer. But for the sake of trying...

Right now I'm reading Princess In Pink, the fifth installment of the Princess Diaries Series by Meg Cabot. I started these books when I was thirteen or fourteen. Or maybe twelve. Either way, I started them a while ago, and am just continuing the series now because it was killing me to see how it ended. Plus, even though they don't follow the books, I love the movies (which is strange, and rare for me) so I really wanted to see how it actually ended.

It's so weird seeing a series from the POV of 12/13/14-year-old me and 17-year-old me. Everything Mia said when I was 12/13/14 seemed like it made sense, because we were relatively the same age. Now, it's the babblings of a love sick 14 year old girl, and it's really funny. Don't get me wrong, I love the series and think Meg Cabot is full of crazy awesome, but it was interesting to see my perspective change.

That's all for now. I'm actually quite tired and it's only 9:30. Oh the exciting life I lead.

Yay, I'm so proud :)

Oh, I definitely know what you mean! The books are all spazzy and caps-locky, and it slightly scares me. But the last book...it gets a lot better, basically.

Anyways, have fun! I am about to read The Lex *happydances*
