The Sweater Song – HS Flashbacks No Matter Your Age

19 Dec

I haven’t thought of this song since I was really young, but tonight a friend and I burst into song at the same time and no one had any idea what we were singing….so of course we were off to youtube….what did we do before youtube?

 

So, no matter if you’re in high school, jr high, or haven’t seen the inside of any type of education building in a couple decades, enjoy the flashbacks 🙂

 

Girls and Goals

1 Nov

I thought looking to you amazing Twilight readers would be a great first step for this online discussion because I’ve found that you (as a group) seem to be well read in general and well versed in the Twilight world.

 

So, here is my question: What is Bella’s goal?

 

I mean overall goal. What is it she wants most in the world. Not the things that change and shift throughout the story, but the goal of Bella the girl. When she first arrives on the scene, and comes to live with her father, we see her most clearly in some ways because its then that we see her as a single entity. Pre-BellaAndEdward. So, as a person, alone, what is it Bella wants?

 

My second question is: What goals are you SICK SICK SICK of seeing in books. I know the lighter RomCom books that take place in high school settings sometimes rehash goals….but hey, in high school our world is locked down by the environment, so it isn’t a surprise that we all want similar things. Are you tired of bad boy must get out of town and seeks scholarship OR plain jane wants to be homecoming queen?

 

OR, what about YOUR goals? What do you want? What does being a high schooler in the USA today make you crave?

 

Not a high schooler? Well, think back – what did you think you’d die if you didn’t get or get to do? What about in books – what characters drive and goals really has spoken to you?

Tell me. This writer not only is listening, but is dying to know!
