The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

With this story, it doesn’t matter if you read the book first or if the movie was better.
Because this story, in any shape or form is a masterpiece, whether it’s on paper or on screen.
Welcome to The Fault in our Stars.
There is no describing this story because it is so many different things; a story of love, bravery, trust, courage, friendship, and the list goes on…
But as you read this novel, you realize that something is haunting you. Something similar to a bad nightmare, but a million times worse. Cancer.
As a young student I always wondered why the teachers told us that in a story there always had to be a problem. And that in the end it would be solved.
Well, this problem can’t be solved.
As I said earlier:
Welcome to The Fault in our Stars.
Enjoy your stay.

How To Organize Your Closet

How To Organize Your Closet

How do you keep a closet organized? It’s a simple question but can have a complicated answer. So that your closet doesn’t look like the picture above and more like the picture below, here are a few tips.

20140726-170452-61492117.jpg

1. Donate anything that is broken and that you are no longer willing to repair, anything that you would no longer buy, haven’t worn this season, and too small. It’s always hard to get to rid of some things because you feel as if some day you’ll wear it again but chances are you won’t. The more clothes that you can donate or give away to charity the more new clothes you can get and the fresher and newer your clothes will feel, seriously. I donated to Goodwill about 2 bags of clothes and now my closet feels much bigger and definitely much newer.

2. Don’t try to cram in too many clothes or shoes in one space. The more space the better. Use more space for clothes instead of less. The more space the better even you don’t have masses of clothes. Also make sure to keep just to clothes in your drawers, hanging space, and shelves. If you add other items they will tend to get in the way.

3. Don’t try to over complicate your organization. If you try to organize by color, and brand you’ll never keep it neat. Organize by clothing type not style, brand, color, pattern, and size. For example, I keep all of my shirts, t shirts, and tanks in one place.

4. Anything that needs to be accessible should be accessible. Don’t put your summer clothes on the shelf if it’s summer!

My Bedroom Update

My Bedroom Update

One of my passions out of many that stands out is my love for redesigning. No matter how nice my room can be after having redecorated it, my room will always look better two months later when I re-redo it!
Here’s my newest, latest, fanciest room setup! Look on insta for more pics!
I used a hanger to hang some of my sunglasses, a bin to put all of my “cute things”. Journals, sticky notes, mugs…

Books I Love-Lists

I love lists: lists about my favorite movies, places, books, actors, songs, lists about what I want for Christmas, what I want in my wardrobe, lists about where I want to go in the world, my goals… lots of lists.

Here’s a list about my favorite books:

So B. ItSarah Weeks 

So B. It

Heidi is on a quest.

She doesn’t know when her birthday is or who her father is. In fact, everything about Heidi and her mentally disabled mother’s past is a mystery.

When a strange word in her mother’s vocabulary of twenty-three words begins to haunt her, Heidi sets out on a cross-country journey in search of the secrets of her past. Far away from home, pieces of her puzzling history come together, But it isn’t until she learns to accept not knowing that Heidi truly arrives.

StargirlJerry Spinelli 

Stargirl

“She was elusive. She was today. She was tomorrow. She was the faintest scent of a cactus flower, the fitting shadow of an elf owl. We did not know what to make of her. In our minds we tried to pin her to a corkboard like a butterfly, but the pin merely went through and away she flew

Stargirl. She’s as magical as the desert sky. As strange as her pet rat. As mysterious as her own name.

From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, the hallways hum with the murmur of ‘Stargirl, Stargirl.’ She captures Leo Borlock’s heart with just one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with just one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted.

At first.

Then they turn on her. Stargirl is suddenly shunned for everything that makes her different. And Leo, panicked and desperate with love, urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her: normal.”

Almost HomeJoan Bauer

Almost Home

Sugar Mae Cole doesn’t often get downhearted, but lately it’s been a struggle to keep up her hopes. Newly homeless, Sugar and her mother, Reba, have come to Chicago to make a fresh start. But everything goes wrong, Sugar and her mother are separated, and Sugar and her beloved rescue dog, Shush, are put into foster care. Through poems and letters and memories and grit, Sugar holds onto her dream of someday having a real home again.

Once long ago, a girl lost her home,
but she didn’t lose her dream.
She hung onto it as the wind kept trying
to blow it away,
But that just made it stronger.

Of course they’re are more to be posted shortly: Out of My Mind, Wonder, Because of Winn-Dixie, The Hunger Games, Hound Dog True, Ida B., Out of the Dust, Fever and many more!

Hope Was Here- Joan Bauer

Sixteen year old Hope Yancey has a big voice, strong heart, and most of all, a lot of hope. When she moves yet again, to small diary town in Wisconsin named Mulhoney, she immediately finds that anything can be changed with a little hope, strength and teamwork.

Hope is a waitress, and her aunt is a cook at the ‘Welcome Stairway’ diner. When G. T. Stoop, the owner of the diner, runs for mayor against a corrupt but powerful man named Eli Millstone, Hope helps him to find his dream. G. T. Stoop hasn’t lost determination and neither has Hope even when they get the results after many months of campaigning…

Hope knows what its like to not be loved, her mother who didn’t have the mother skills to keep her, abandoned Hope and left her to her aunt. Hope doesn’t even know who her real father is. Somehow, happiness finds it’s way into Hope’s life and she has finally found a place where she is loved and a place that feels like home to her.

Even if life isn’t perfect, we can all get through it.

‘Hope Was Here’ is an original, creative, meaningful novel. Hope Yancey’s life is so realistic that it is hard to believe that it is a fiction story. It is like watching a movie that the actors are acting so well that it doesn’t seem like they’re even acting anymore. Joan Bauer wrote this story, so that you could reflect it into your own life. So that you could reflect hope into your life…

Personally, I though that at times the book had a little slow of a plot, but I don’t dislike it because of that, because it is not an adventure or action story, but rather a story about life and people.

People that want to cry and laugh at the same time, people that want a story about ambition and hope, a story about people that are out there in the world and maybe just like them should read ”Hope Was Here”.
