The time has finally come for me to admit out loud. I might have to check myself into a loony bin when I’m finished writing this because I never thought in a million years I would ever, ever admit this to anyone. I like Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in the Twilight series. I don’t like any of the others and if I did I would admit it only once, here. But yes Breaking Dawn, it is the one book I like out all of the sparkling vampire rubbish.

I can’t justify why I like the book, I hate, hate, HATE the vampire legend that Stephanie Meyer uses. I am a very big believer that vampires are supposed to be evil, disgusting creatures that see humans as a source of food and this sparkly rubbish that she spins infuriates me but there is something about the last book of the series that made me read it in one night. I borrowed it off someone from work and didn’t sleep until I had given it back the next morning in a happy state.

I think there is one main part of the book that turned it around for me and made me fall in love with the book. The scene where Bella gives birth/transforms. It is well written and gruesome, really gruesome. It could make the final film watchable if it is done right, which I doubt because they wouldn’t want to up the rating and alienate the tweenage audience. This scene made me sick yet was by far the best bit in the book. And the rest isn’t half bad either.

Ok so I have admitted it. I am handing myself in to the loony bin tomorrow and fully expect the complete mocking that I deserve. Go on, mock me.

Although I warn you, if you do mock me I will set a real vampire on you…

Time well spent

When I’m not working or at college I do find myself with a ridiculous amount of free time. I know that in reality my time should be spent doing things like this.

This is the finished product for my desktop publishing unit at college. I’m quite proud of it because I didn’t go to many of the classes and still managed to pass. I think it looks quite professional (if I do say so myself!) and it definetely helped me learn my way round InDesign.

However, I tend to spend too much of my time doing things like this.

This would be from a very thrilling time in my life where I spent a day watching Disney films and tying the contents of a packet of strawberry laces together.

When there happens to be a lack of strawberry laces in my life I tend to resort to amusing myself in one of two ways.

Watching one of the many DVDs I own… of which I wish I had many more.

Or reading. I love to read. I will read almost anything. I even managed to make it through all four Twilight books even though I often wanted to throw them out the window!

I also spend some of my time drawing. I used to draw a lot more when I was a teenager but I do still like to dabble from time to time. I will draw pretty much anything but have been trying some Anime-style people lately as a new challenge.

And when all else fails I guess I could spend some time with that lovely girlfriend of mine!

This is my wonderful girlfriend when we were in Paris. And she does take up all of the remainder of my spare time.

Sometimes I feel I need to do something more productive with my spare time but then I realise that I spend my spare time doing things that I enjoy and with people I enjoy spending time with. Definetly time well spent.
