The Lyric Medly Tag

Hi everyone!

Guinea Pig Lover  did the Lyric Medly Tag, and I asked if I could do it and she said sure! Thanks, Guinea Pig Lover. :D

So here are the rules:

+Thank and link back to the person who tagged you.
+Make a collage that represents your taste in music (or, if you don't feel like it, you can use mine) to use along with your tag post
+List 10 song lyrics (along with song titles and artists) and their genres to go with an emotion/scenario (you can come up with your own or use the ones that the person who tagged you used).
+Tag at least 5 bloggers

Okay, so here we go: 

1. Song that makes me want to cry: This Isn't the End by Owl City 
She tried to look happy in front of her friends 
but knew that she'd never feel normal again 
She fought back the tears as they filled her eyes 
And wanted him back just to tell him goodbye

2. A song that makes me smile: When Will my Life Begin sung by Mandy Moore 
Seven a.m. the usual morning line-up 
Start on the chores and sweep 'till the floor's all clean 
Polish and wax do laundry and mop and shine up 
Sweep again and by then 
It's like seven fifteen

3. Song that I have in my head all day: This Day Aria from MLP: FIM 
No, I do not love the groom 
In my heart 
There is no room 
But I still want him to be all mine!

4. A song that makes me feel rebellious: Roundtable Rival by Lindsey Stirling 
{No lyrics :P}

5. A song that I need to tap my feet whenever I hear it: Speak Life by Tobymac
Somedays, life feels perfect 
Other days, it just ain't workin' 
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong, 
and everything in between 

6. Song that makes me feel "fly": Take to the Skies by Owl City 
Purple burst of paper birds 
This picture paints a thousand words 
So take a breath of myth and mystery 
And don't look back 

7. Song that makes me feel like I'm traveling: Tokoyo by Owl City 
Feels like I've been away for a thousand years 
So tired of these airports and suvineers {I'm so dumb, how do you spell that?}
I shiver in the night
and I think of you 

8. Song that makes me want to dance: Life's Too Short, written by Kristen and Anderson Lopez
Life's too short 
To always feel shut out and unloved by the sister I long to know 
Life's to short 
To never let you never celebrate me, the true queen of the ice and snow 

9. Song that makes me feel sad: The Call by Regina Spektor 
It started out as a feeling 
Which then grew into a hope 
Which then turned into a quiet thought 
Which then turned into a quiet word
And then that word grew louder and louder 
'Till it was a battle cry 
I'll come back 
When you call me 
No need to say goodbye 

10. A Song that Reminds me of Summer: Paradise by Coldplay 
When she was just a girl 
She expected the world 
But it flew away from her reach 
So she ran away in her sleep 
Dreamed of para-para-paradise 

Okay! For some reason, italics always make me feel like I am acting very solemn. :3 I majority of these songs are from Owl city, but the songs were just too perfect. I had to choose them. :3 
The nominations: 
I can't think of anyone else right off the bat. Ugh. XD If you want to do it, feel free!

Winter Walk

These are some old pictures I took but never posted. I am having a lot of trouble with my SD card, and so I can't upload/take any new pictures. :( The computer is being cranky and whenever we try to upload the pictures it says it uploaded them but when I go and see they aren't. So until we get that fixed there won't be many new pictures. Sorry. I hope you enjoyed these, though! I have some other pretty ones of a creek that runs near our house so I will try to find those too. :)

Comparing Nancy Drew with Trixie Belden

Hi everyone!

TB = Trixie Belden
ND = Nancy Drew

(This post may contain spoilers for any of the TB or ND books)

I have fallen in love with Trixie Belden, a mystery series for girls. The first book was published in 1948, and the last time they went out of print was around 2005 or 2006[?]
Another series I also like, (though not as much as Trixie) is Nancy Drew. More popular, the first Nancy Drew book was published in the early 1930s, and they are all still in print today (though most of the "originals" are heavily edited .)

Today I'm going to be comparing TB with ND.
(Pictures arent mine.)

Trixie Belden 
I LOVE Trixie because firstly, she isn't the stereotypical blonde girl that always goes "EEEEK!" "AAAH!" "Do we have to go in there?" just as the main character is about to get to the bottom of things,  and always just gets in her/his way, usually just bringing them along to be nice. (Take Bess, for instance.) Trixie is brave, curious, and loveable. She isn't afraid to get her hands dirty (again, compare her with Bess). I guess that's a pet peeve of mine, the blonde girl is always dainty and frilly and hates any adventure of any kind. :P
The books have romance. Not icky romance, and it is definitely never the main focus of the book, but a TINY bit. Like at the very end of the ninth book - I almost squealed my head off. CX
The books are not predictable. Well, maybe a little, but not as much as the ND books. There is always have a unique case, and if Trixie gets captured, there is always a different way she gets out. (Unlike ND.)
Trixie is not perfect. I love that. To me, ND is kind of hard to believe, because she is always right. She never seems to make a mistake, and she always knows what to do. Trixie doesn't. Trixie is way more believable. She jumps to conclusions sometimes, and she sometimes ends up wrong. (Black Jacket Mystery, Mystery Off Glen Road).
Finally, Trixie has a life. She has chores, she has school, she has siblings. I haven't read an ND book in awhile, but she never seems to go to school. I mean, she's only 16....
Nancy Drew
I like ND a lot, but obviously not as much as TB. I could find a lot of faults with ND, but there are some good things about ND and some bad things about TB as well.
I like ND because she has exciting mysteries that last through the WHOLE book. TB books' mysteries sometimes don't last through the whole book and just stop right smack in the middle, but the book keeps going on. Sometimes that gets me bored with the book and makes me want to put it down. With ND, the mystery keeps going to the very end, which I like better. It keeps you wanting to keep turning pages to find out who did it (again, to the very end ). But - at the end the usually shove a whole bunch of information in your face at one time and so you basically keep reading and then close the book and then you are like, "What did that guy get arrested for again?"
TB books usually don't explain everything quite clearly enough. TB books DO build off each other a lot, and if you were starting with the eight book you would kind of be confused. That's what I did. I was a little confuzzled because it didn't explain everything that had happened in the previous books clearly - and I didn't really understand it that well and what was happening until I went and ordered the other books. ND books don't build off each other and they do introduce the characters clearly. so that's a plus.

Well, anyway, I just wanted to have fun comparing TB and ND. Hope you enjoyed the post! :)
