Yes, definitely. And though I so much love fiction and narrative media like movies and shows, sometimes I find myself disappointed— by overused tropes, poorly done research, flat characters and a lack of a theme… Just bad stories, or bad storytelling. It’s discouraging sometimes! Speaking of stories.. :P What’s this 30 day Harry Potter challenge? Can I join in? It looks like fun!
Haha, yes, West Coast it can be super cold (glacial melt from Alaska, ahoy!). It’s probably better not to go past your knees, especially since sneaker waves can take you by surprise. Hopefully you can go back soon! :D I so much miss the ocean. Hawaii was very neat, definitely recommend visiting it and seeing it. It was much more fun as a tourist, though, than a “local.” Also, the Mediterranean is so gloriously beautiful. *_*
Haha, I was thinking it might happen by accident XD because they are not coordinated; I agree, I don’t think Helios would ever do that on purpose. LOL can you see Mamoru and Helios having words with the ref? lawls. And yes, there is that issue of forgiveness…
Oh, I couldn’t agree more. There’s just not a lot of anything truly wll done or original, and it’s discouraging. :/ Not to mention how much I loath the majority of reality shows. Thank goodness I think that trend is starting to wane- at least I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s on the downward spiral but anyway. Hehe, I’ll post the HP Challenge list after this for you so you can do it too. : D
Pfft, I didn’t even think of that, but you’re right, that would explain the chill! XD I definitely would love to go to Hawaii, yes. My mom and I are considering doing a cruise there in the fall. ^^ Excited and nervous, of course, but I think it will be so much fun. Oooh, I envy you being able to see the Mediterranean, would ADORE to go there. Pics, you have? : D
Randomly, you wouldn’t know of any good sources for info on life in ancient Greece, would you? Thinking about story research… wanting to maybe try doing something a little different than my normal stuff but need to know more details and not quite sure where to begin…
Rofl. Ah, well, that would work then. ^^ Helios stops too fast, Mamo goes flying over his head… XD Oh yes, I can see it, and I love it. Hota’s not the type to hold onto her anger if someone has repented and is truly trying to gain forgiveness. :P He can win her over if he tries hard enough.
Yes, yes, it is discouraging. Though sometimes I take this as a sign to turn off the TV and the Kindle and just write. Like if I don’t like it, I should do something about it. I’m sure that sounds arrogant. XD But I’d rather entertain myself than constantly want to throw my remote at the screen or something. And ugh. Yes. I hate “reality” shows, which are scripted and edited. That alone leaves a bad taste in my mouth for ethical reasons. Those shows (and heck, lots of other crap that comes out of Hollywood) absolutely trashes the images of Americans overseas. Like, it really hurts us. People think things in movies are really what it’s like in the US. So I’ll be crossing my fingers with you! D:
That sounds like fun!! Cruises are cool! Unfortunately no, I don’t have pics, since I went with my dad and he’s the shutterbug, he took the pictures. But maybe I can get him to send me some to show you. :)
well, let’s see here… Ancient Greece: http://www.ancient-greece.org/index.html
I’m sure the books you could find through a library. Even if it’s going up to the U and copying things, it’s cheaper than buying them!
Not sure how the much the first link will work for you, though, since you’re on your phone and the internet doesn’t work, right? Should I give you book titles/ISBNs?
Hehehehe…. yes, I imagine she is forgiving. Though I could also imagine the look on his face if she were to refuse at first… hehe. XD I’m evil.
No, I totally agree with you! It’s really true, there are so many things that I wish people had written or made shows of, and if they aren’t doing it, then it’s our job to make it happen. :) And SO agree about that, I mean, is this the kind of image we want to give the world of Americans? And we wonder why others don’t like us or look down on us. It’s just sad. :/
Yeah! I’ve never been on one, so it will be an adventure. XD Ah, no worries! If he can that would be awesome though. It sounds so beautiful there, I’d love to be able to go myself one day. And geek out over everything historical along the way. XD
THANK YOU. <3 Yeah, the link shows up kind of screwy on my phone, but I’ve saved it so I can read it when I have my computer back - hopefully soon!!. The library has one of the books, and it looks like the other is being sold used fairly cheap on Amazon so I might just buy that one. This will be fantastic. ^^ Hehe, well, I DO work at a copier place, so if I need to I might be able to just use the one at work to make copies from the library one. Research is good, yes. Hopefully it will help my writing along. ^^
LOL. That tempts me to have her refuse at first, just to see the kicked puppy face he’d give her.
