About meI'm a sophomore at Cal State Fullerton.I'm majoring in Communications with and emphasis in journalism and have a second major in American Studies. I hope to one day write brilliant novels,or at least ones that people like. I have a road bike and ride with my brother and dad. I like history and I love old movies especially musicals. I love to read, obviously, and I love to find new books that interest me. I want to travel the world and study abroad in college. I love dance, I studied ballet for about 6 yrs when I was young and still love to dance. I'm fascinated by different cultures. I love Doctor Who (esp. David Tennant)! My favorite actress is Audrey Hepburn and I love Humphrey Bogart. Just a bit about Me.

But we're still woriking things out
I do to but we're still figuring things out and i'm thinking i'm messing it up agian. Me and realationships don't mix for some odd reason:(
LOL to traffic even though it sucks.
OH MY GOD! okay so the girl i wz telling you about gave me a note asking if i could forgive her and she was sorry about what happened and currently i just wrote her back apoligizing for my part in all of it and yeah I think we might be getting back together.
I guess I dont' know i'll see how it plays out

Dang that has to suck, so much work so little time. God that has to be great shedual wise, not to metion easy. So you just happened to get in one of the few sorities that still hold that image! That had to suck
I guess your right. Thanks 4 advide. But i know i'm bi because I am completely into boys AND girls. I mean there isn't one i like better.
Okay so how are things with you? BTW i LOVE ur pics they r soooo cool!
yeah, that would have been helpful, huh? ;)

after you configure your ticker, you will see 2 codes that you can copy and paste. you want the one that looks like this .

copy that one and then go to edit your profile. just paste the code wherever you want the ticker to show up (you can use the same code to post it in your challenge thread).
Cool
go to this webiste and configure your ticker. MAKE SURE to remember your password as you will need it each time you update the ticker. then you can choose your ruler and slide object. have fun!

Sup hermana? I am sitting with a friend named Brian(no he's not the guy I was talking about I don't even think he plays football he's just a friend) He's thinking about joining LT. sO that means we'll probably have a guy in Readtilmidnight.
He's COOL(in his own crazy way)

Adios Hermana!

And soccer and track don't start til March so my mom is trying to make me go for other sports that I'm not very good at.

Hello Renee! Just saying hi.....

OOHH....A MYSTERY! I do like a good mystery...

How was it? I searched for it here on LT and the cover was kinda creepy. Was it creepy?
oh and what new book did you get??
OMG! THAT'S A BLOW-OUT!!!!

for realz? maybe they didn't notice since the band was great......
thanks! I just hope we go on with the idea... We're having another meeting on monday. We're gonna discuss community service and the Halloween grams.

So how was the game? Did your school team won?
I hope u guys won....I mean not winning after 17 years..

Tell me about it when you can...

Hasta Luego
Reggie
Me and the guy ever being bf/gf is a no go......It's down the toilet....

He's just so...........COMPLICATED! I bet he doesn't even know who I am.... ok that's an exaggeration but still.
He can have any girl in our grade maybe even in the school; why the heck would he plan to ask ME out?
We'll see.... there's a dance coming. I'm not really a "go to the dance" kind of person; but still......

----------------------------------

that's great that you and ur bf are getting along well...and he's jerky friends are missing? that's good.

they cut journalism at ur school? we're just starting one..... the scholar bowl-spelling bee-student council were talking about ideas for the paper we're making.

Sorry they cut journalism at ur school.

Reggie
Hi! ok dat's good that ur ok.....

----------------------------------

I can't stand it when people makes fun of me!!!
Today when we went to 2nd period and I was really tired so I put my head down and then when I put my head up my binder was missing. The bitches that were sitting beside me were laughing and it turned out they took it....

.....................................

Then when I was in science class; we were doing a project then I answered a question that the teacher asked and then this jerky guy sitting next to my group's table started making fun of my accent!

----------------------------------------

UGH! i hate it when people do that to me...... the funnest time I had all day was when I went to last period - GYM.
The girls and I were playing TRUTH OR DARE, then me and some girls were playing BASKETBALL, then we were passing the soccer ball from one side (girl's side) to the other side (boy's side) while some were playing basketball...............it was so fun.

-------------------------------------------------​

we also had a BENCHMARK MATH TEST in 1st period. It wasn't that hard but it wasn't that easy either.

----------------------------------------

Yesterday I had my 1st Scholar Bowl/Spelling Bee/Student Council meeting. It was really cool. Except before we were moved to a differrent class we were stuck in a class full of cheerleaders making up cheers and doing toe touches and splits.

OH........ but it would have been nice if he said something
that is not cool! Did ur bf said anything when they made the comments?

If he didn't then that is SO not cool.
your cap and gown? so soon?

Yes she really joined readtilmidnight. Check out her profile; it's so funny.
Hi Renee!! One of my friends from school her name is Quinnece she joined LT and she joined readtilmidnight.

So wassup??
Yeah I totally know what you're saying. When I was in safety patrol there were people who were my friends and most who hates me. Then a few months before school started I decided to quit because I didn't love being part of it as I did before.My friends say that I'm too busy to be around anymore(which I realized was true), I missed the afternoon wrestling on the way home because I have to get out of school last,.......etc. I didn't like it as much as I used too when I started and I realized that I was missing alot so I quited.

But unlike what happened with you when I quitted no one was upset I think they were rather happy actually. So no one gave me a hard time about quitting except my parents.

....................

The guy I was talking about said hi to me; kind of. I was helping someone with math problems so I guess I didn't hear all I heard was my name. So the person sitting next to him told me that he was trying to say hi.

That's good right? Not that I care...

Actually he said "Hey Reggie, Sup?"
O COOL! So any plans? dinner at a restaurant or have a picnic under the moonlight and watch the stars ......etc?

Sorry You know me.... a romance freak.

Hey what happened to readtilmidnight??????? I visited today but it said that the group was deleted......What's up with that?

PLEASE tell me Helen didn't delete Readtilmidnight........

VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY CURIOUS.
THANKS!!!!

Your boyfriend? you mean the one you were talking about at readtilmidnight?

Right back, I wanna hear all about it.

C ya!

Reggie
oh and i just started reading again. My friend from school let me borrow this book called "Palace of Mirrors".
Hi Renee! Sorry I haven't been around; the computer hasn't been free.

No my middle school is from 6th grade to 8th grade.

So how was your second day of school?
You don't have any classes with your bff? that's too bad.

Keep me updated on what's goin' on. Talk to you later girl.

Reggie

P.S. My bday tomorrow.
Hi Veta, and thanks for the comment! I'm glad you enjoyed the reviews. It's refreshing to hear from someone still technically in her teens that Twilight is NOT the best book evah!!! :-P I have to confess that it was fun to read the series while thinking about what I would say in my reviews. At times it felt like Meyer was incriminating herself, lol. She makes it almost too easy to point out all the bad stuff. I'm still amazed that some of it even got published.

You don't happen to be a fan of HP by any chance, do you? ;)

And hey, if you're ever at the point in your writing that you would like to hire an editor to get your work ready to submit for publication, we should talk. I'm a freelance editor and I love working directly with authors. My website's on my profile page... just something to think about for the future. It seems we have a lot in common in our literary tastes :)

~ww
thanks so much for your note! i'm glad you are settling in and enjoying yourself. good to hear from you!

Leah
I have 4 advance classes; Language Arts, Algebra, World History, and Science. And I have Spanish class; they said if we go to the high school across da street and we're really fluent in Spanish we might be able to go to a trip to Spain. COOL!

Today I signed up for Soccer. So now I have two tryouts; track and soccer.

I love Algebra Class! Like I said I was one of the Pirate Ghosts; so I can focus on my work since I sit away from all da ruckus. (MAth is my fave subject).

I met alot of people and I saw one of my friends from 5th grade; we're both trying out for track. I made alot of friends, too. So it's not as bad as I thought it would be.

And some of my new friends are book lovers too so I suggested they check out LT.

Reggie
sup? just got home from school about 15 minutes ago.

Um...... I signed up for track, and I have to attend a SCHOLAR BOWL/Math Team/Spelling Bee/Student Council group meeting on monday.

I'm really looking forward to it.

So you start school next week on monday right? What would you be signing up for?

I have to go now. I need to start on my homework or I'm dead.

Reggie
thanx!
ok i'll cheak it out when i can
Thanx 4 da advice.

Yeah I hate to bottle things inside too. That's why I have a journal since I'm not very good at showing my feelings.

Ur like a sister I never had. (I really want a sister; but got 2 brothers instead.)

Reggie
thanx
and me too!
okay you get your wisdom teeth pulled and now i have to have my tonsils pulled
It's tomarrow!
Hi Renee! Like I said welcome back!

Sorry I haven't been in toch with you gys it's just that the computers at our house got virus so I wasn't able o se the computer. But right now I'm at the library so I thought I'd se the compters and catch up with u guys.

It's a mall world after all by janette rallison

or something else.
I'm open to suggestions.

Helen

Reggie
I posted my story so cheak it out whenever you can please
this year I might take on the job; it's during the school year.

Yeah, I haven't read the looking glass wars either. I don't have the book yet either.

Reggie
Hey what up?
Hi Veta,

I just saw your comment from May about how we both have the Bloody Jack series on our lists. Sorry! I didn't even realize there was a comment feature. Anyway, yeah, I don't know anyone else who has read the series - I think they are great and definitely different from what's out there. I see you have the Harry Potter series listed as well - they are my favorite, though I haven't had time to see the new movie yet. Hopefully this week!

ad_astra
your so lucky! I found this job soon after I found out about it but I was a year younger than they need; so hopefully I get picked again this year so I can pay for it myself.

So, how's The Looking Glass Wars going?

Reggie
Awesome!

When you got invited to the People to people thing did you go?
Renee,

Are you going to China next year cuz you were picked to be one of the ' People to People Ambassadors?

I'm asking cuz I was supposed to go to Australia during the summer this year but it cost to much so I didn't get to go.

Reggie
cool waiting 4 her response
okay I have this book I cheaked out from the library it is called
The Looking Glass Wars (The Looking Glass Wars Trilogy) by Frank Beddor
What do ya think.
oh alright.
Well any suggestions?
Let's brainstorm
ok i just saw it and your right. I don't think it's a book i WOULD like to read.

So what now?

How about "How to Ditch Your Fairy" by Justin Larbalestier?

I borrowed it from the library but haven't started it yet. I might start on it on Monday.

Check it out and see if it's something you'd like to read.
oh ok.
I'll look for it at LT too.
thanks for the info.
did you find the book?
i found it at my library but can't pick it up til August 8
Fred Mustard Stewart............I think?

If that's not it check the conversation at 'readtilmidnight' about the bookclub
Hey!
I was just talking to helen and she suggested a book called Six Weeks.
what do you think?
Your Welcome!
And if you have any book suggestions; I'm open to suggestions.

I'll see you at 'Readtilmidnight'.

Happy Reading!

Reggie Lynn
Veta,

I saw your comment for 'Readtilmidnight'. You said you liked books that are romantic, has something to do with magic(I think), and mystery.\

Well if you like books that has something to do with magic I suggest:

Magic in Manhattan Series: by Sarah Mlynowski

Bras and Broomsticks
Frogs and French Kisses
Spells and Sleeping Bags
Parties and Potions
Hey welcome to LT. I'm kinda new too! But I hope you get everything out of LT that they have to offer and thank you for the nice coomment
Veta,

Welcome to LibraryThing! If you like Harry Potter, come on over to the Hogwart's Express group, you'll find plenty of friendly fans. We talk about many more things than HP.

Cheers,
Elizabeth
