Hey, what's up? Javelin here.

I signed on to (what else) post my writing for other people to see and comment on. If there is one thing I'd like you to do for me, it is is that you please comment, comment, comment. I love it when people comment on what I write and suggest ways to make it better. In return, I will try to comment on your stuff. It's sort a give and take relationship. alt

A word of advice: Punctuate Correctly
An English professor wrote the words, "A woman without her man is nothing" on the blackboard and told the students to punctuate it correctly.
The men wrote: "A woman, without her man, is nothing."
The women wrote: "A woman: without her, man is nothing."

A little about me: I love many activities. Snowboarding, swimming, track (especially throwing the javelin), wrestling, soccer and basketball (but only for fun, some people get way too into it). I love to read, write, draw, and zone out in thought. And video games, those are a great way to pass time. I love to learn! Like right now I'm just beginning to learn guitar, but I really suck (I can only get better, believe me).

And I've read so many books, that I've run out of shelves and can't remember the names of half of them. Here's some I do remember: Firebringer (not about dragons), InkheartDragon RiderEragon, Eldest, Dragon and Thief, Dragon and Soldier, a lot of Brian Jaques novels (including but not limited to: Redwall, Martin the Warrior, Mossflower, Salamandastron, Pearls of Lutra, Marlfox, Outcast of Redwall, Mattimeo,The Legend of Luke, and The Long Patrol), the Maximum Ride series, the Harry Potter series, random Matt Christopher sport novels, The Host, a lot of Dean Kootz (even though almost all his stories are the same theme), Nancy Drew (I know, I know), Uglies, Pretties, Specials, Extras, the Honor Harrington series by David Weber, anything and everything by James Rollins, George R.R. Martin's series A Song of Fire and Ice (really good with interwining storylines and politics, but very gory and with explicit sexual content, not recommended for readers under 17),  Slaughterhouse Five (Rest In Peace Kurt Vonnegut), 1984Great Expectations, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Romeo and Juliet, the script of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, script of The Crucible, Pet Sematary, Jurassic Park, Timeline, Prey, Sphere, Blowfly, Post Mortem, Tell No One, Fatal, Shadow Man, Keeping You a Secret, The Year They Burned the Books, Anne on my Mind, basically anything I can get my grubby little hands on. And when someone like me has a library card, it's a lot of books.

I do not like stupid people. Rarely do I tolerate them. Occasionally I get the urge to poke one, just to see how they react. Just kidding on that last part (but it would be funny as hell alt ).

I also do not like people that are mean-spirited, especially if they spread rumors about someone. I've found that that is the worst way to hurt someone because there's really no way to fight back except by spreading more rumors, and that never goes well. So don't do it! I have a thing against the political in-fighting among some groups of people (usually high schoolers) because it's always over something stupid. Always. And I hate it when people are so obsessive over their "image" that they won't do anything fun for fear of looking foolish in front of others.

-92% of teens would be dead if Abercrombie and Fitch said it wasn't cool to breathe. Put this in your profile if you're part of the 8% that would be laughing.

-When you wish upon a falling star, your wish can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

-As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools.

Football fans will appreciate this joke: A dude took his girlfriend to her first NFL football game. They had great seats right behind the bench. After the game he asked her if she had had a good time.
She replied, "Oh, I really liked it but I just don't understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents."
Dumbfounded, the dude asked, "What on Earth do you mean?"
"Well, I saw them flip a coin and one team got it and for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was: 'Get the quarter back! Get the quarter back!'"

Please comment, I'd appreciate it. alt


I got a tattoo of a phoenix. Here are pics of the outline, the artist shading it in, just after it was done, and a week after I got it--after it was almost done peeling. The green eye is for my birthstone, peridot.
