Best movie trailer ever!

November 16, 2008

Wow, I’m at loss for words. First off I want to mention that I got back in my dorm hours ago from the end of the year soccer party with my teammates and coaches. I had so much fun, they’re like a family to me. Well our coach handed out awards for each of us. I love what I got, BEST WIZARDY. I got back to my dorm, and I was pretty bored because I didn’t want to leave. So I decided to surf the net and got on Muggletnet.com (best website in my opinion) I saw that they released another new trailer for The Half Blood Prince (HBP) I knew I had to check it out. I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. I was so excited I wanted to cry. this is the comment I wrote…

WOW! OMFG! I cannot believe how good this trailer is. I almost cry, especially after seeing Hermione crying,  Snape casting the Avada Kedavra curse, and harry yelling, “FIGHT BACK YOU COWARD!”. Ron is so HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I cannot wait, damn WB, making us wait this long. When is July going to be here? Tmr? Imagine if the movie were to actually come out on the 21st instead of in July? I’m so excited about this movie, and this is all I want to talk about. And the funny thing is, my soccer coach awarded me for BEST WIZARDY. And I thought this was perfect because I came back to my dorm and I came across the new trailer!  IT’S SO PERFECT! I’m Deaf too, and I wish I could understand everything they said in the trailer. Big thanks to G_Wizzle for the words, you’re not only helping one person, you’re helping loads of people!

 

 I’m such a hardcore Harry Potter fan. I remember when Harry Potter was everywhere, school supplies, backpack, lunchboxes, and all those things. I would be like, “I’m sick of Harry Potter. ” Til one day my friend begged me to try reading the first book, I finally gave it. So I gave it a try, read the Socerer’s Stone, and I fell in love with it since then. I continued to read book after book after book until the 5th one, The Goblet of Fire because the other books weren’t published yet. I started going to the midnight release parties at nearby bookstores for the last two books, I even wore my Harry Potter costume; the robe, Gryffindor tie, white top, black skirt, black tights, black shoes, and last, the most important thing for a wizard, a wand. All my friends know how addicted I am to Harry Potter. I went to all the midnight screenings, even without closed captions. Harry Potter is the only movie(s) I will watch without closed captions. And I know the stories because I read the books. I’m actually looking forward to The Beedle of the Bard by J.K. Rowling, and I will of course go to the midnight release party, but this time in D.C. I’m just sad that it’s going to be a long wait until the movie which is coming out in July. At least if gives us something to look forward to for a while, but it’s trying me MAD! Barbarous isn’t it?  I read loads of comments on mugglenet about their reactions on the trailer, wow, none of them were bad, not ONE.

1. Everyone is just as anxious as I am,

2. even lots of them wanted to cry,

3.will even see Twlight just to see the trailer on the screen,

4.show up to Twlight in Harry Potter outfit,

5. watch the trailer over and over,

6.felt really emotional to it,

7. is more than happy that the movie is really following and being faithful to the book this time,

8.reckon it’s the best trailer for a movie EVER,

9. wish that they didn’t have to wait until July and that the movie was still coming out on Nov 21st instead.

To be frank, I have been having a hard time getting myself to read other books that’s not written by J.K. Rowling. I even tried to read a few pages of Twlight at the bookstore. I couldn’t really get into it, I know the book is really good, I will read it eventually, just that even after a year I’m still going through a Harry Potter withdrawal. Okay, enough ramblings on Harry Potter.

Get your copies of THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD Dec 4th, look for midnight release parties at bookstore near you.

Is it really over?

November 5, 2008

Seriously, where did the time go? It seems like yesterday I just got here on Aug 20, starting my first time as a soccer player in my 2nd semester here at Gallaudet. I remember when I came with Casey, we got to our first soccer practice. None of us knew each other, everything was new to us, the players, the coaches, and the turf. And now we actually ended our soccer season last Thursday, which was the coldest day ever. I love my teammates and coaches more than anything. It’s amazing how much we have grown together as a team, we have been through alot of ups and downs throughout this whole season. As we went through all the challenges, losses, pain, abuses from some of the most physicall teams out there, we still bond, we grow closer and closer. We’ve had our arguments here and there, but we still manage to love each other like family, sisters, friends, and teammates. We played our best and some we did not, but that did not matter as long we played our best, that fact that we did not win. What matters is we finished this season, unlike what I have been told about last year. We learned how to play with one other on the field. We were able to understand and learn the way each of us play on the field. It took time, and I’m amazed how several of our teammates have never played soccer, and they managed to keep up with those who have played soccer their whole lives or for parts of their lives. They could have given up and quit, and not have wanted to learn new things. But they kept on with their commitments to the team and to the coaches. I truly have hope for the women’s soccer program.It’s okay, we have next season to get ready for. I’m sure we shall win some games. I love my team! They are truly the greatest, enough said. That’s what is so great about playing on a team sport. You have that bond with them on and off the field. It’s nothing like just going to school, and having friends. It’s so different and unique, it’s just really special. I sure am lookin’ forward to next season! We truly do have a great coach. Keep it up Sarah!

Now that soccer is over, it’s kinda hard getting used to. I’m used to practicing everyday, used to seeing my teammates for at least 2 hours everyday, and now it’s that empty feeling. Okay  no more soccer for now, what now? It’s hard getting used to. I love being busy and to have more free time to do homework and projects isnt really that easy. Everyone is like, “Seriously, no soccer practice? This cannot be. We miss soccer already.”

To my teammates,

  I love you guys! You are like a family to me! Keep it up! Thanks you guys for sticking with each other, and for making this Women’s soccer program possible!

This Will Never Happen Again..

September 21, 2008

Here’s a cool video of a pitcher throwing a fastball during a baseball game and instead of hitting the bat it hit a bird that was flying across. I first saw this on Sports Science. I thought it was amazing, but such an unfortunate to the bird.

Remembering Zidane’s World Cup..

September 21, 2008

I remember this day… France vs. Italy and I believe this was Zidane’s last world cup and the Italian player said something behind his back. He turned around and headbutt the guy in the chest. He literally fell backwards. He got a red card and lost the chance for France to win the World Cup. It may or may have not costs them a World Cup Win. He’s still one of the greatest soccer player out there.

The Greatest Dream I’ve Ever Had…

September 21, 2008

I was walking outside and then suddenly I saw Princess Diana, as beautiful as always.. Doing her good deed. She was picking up trash and throwing them in the trash cans. I don’t know if she was real in person or if I was seeing things.. But she looked so real to me.. I helped her pick up the trash.. Then she spoke, I told her I couldn’t hear but could read lips.. She asked if I knew cued speech.. I said no I know american sign language. And I was amazed. She knew ASL! She said it wasn’t well known yet at her time. I told her now it is. It’s really awesome. I walked with her into a building and down the hall. I told her I miss her. She’s my role model. She smiled and said yeah since the accident. I don’t know why but I asked her about the accident and if it was on purpose or not. She said it was her grandparents or grandma. Wish my memory would serve me well. She did not really want to talk about it. I said, I’m so sorry I shouldn’t have asked I was just wondering if it was intended or not. When earlier, I was following her down the hall. I was pondering if this meant that I need to go to England? If it was a sign like all other signs I’ve been seeing for the past few years and I will go to England someday. We talked some more but I don’t remember what we talked about.. Then she vanished. I reached a catholic church. Saw an interpreter.. She started talking, there were like 2 or 3 other people that knew ASL. I asked her, how come we are the only 2 that can see Di? Does it mean something? She said she doesn’t know. I was proud, I felt so special. I was happy to finally meet Princess Diana, the Princess of Wales. She was the one person I’ve always wanted to meet before she died. And there I had the chance, but in her afterlife. She wasn’t ghostly she was as real as we are. A moment I will never forget. I will cherish this forever. I talked and walked with the princess.

 

This was the greatest dream I’ve ever had.

Gally soccer vs. Columbia Union

September 17, 2008

We had such a great game last night on our home turf game. We lost with a score of 2-5. Virginia and I were the two scorers of the game. The Bison attempted 18 shots and had numerous shots bounce off the crossbar in a strong attempt to win the team’s first game of the 2008 season.
