Penumbral Lunar eclipse, books, and dark spots.

Vampire Academy book website
Yesterday I finished the Vampire Academy series. Loved it!!! I especially liked the themes of the books, the parts where the characters talk about doing what's right, being honorable, and owing and taking responsibility for their actions. Yeah, there's that teenage angst and rich kids being snooty with excessive senses of entitlement, but there is also a lot of growth in the characters from book one to book six. I'm really excited to see what they do with the movie. Of course there is also the draw of a really gorgeous Russian actor named Danila Kozlovsky playing the part of Dimitri Belikov, too, but cute actor's aside, I really am looking forward to it. The movie comes out in 2014.

Side note: I've actually tried to find some of Danila Kozlovsky's movies online to watch, even tried to see if they were available for purchase and rent with English subtitles, but have come up empty so far. Since I haven't learned Russian yet the subs are pretty essential. I kind of hoped since a couple of his films seem to be big ( and look really good) enough in Russia, that they might be available here too.

Books and movies aside, tonight is the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. I'm lucky enough to be in a part of the world that can see it. I should start being able to see the moon about 4:40 pm and the sun will set about 5:55 pm according to a site I... can't remember the name of. I'm going to take their world for it and start looking outside at 4:30 this afternoon. I am hoping that I will be able to get at least a decent picture of it.

As for me on a more personal level, I haven't been doing so well. Nothing's going on with Skoora, we're fine. It's other stuff and it's pretty serious but I don't want to talk about it at the moment. Well, I do, but I don't know that I am really ready to. I will leave it as that it is scary, really depressing, and I don't know how things are going to play out for me- that's actually the scary part. Oh hey! Blackmore's Night just started playing on Pandora. Cool!

I also haven't decided if I want to sign up for National Novel Writer's Month next month. I participated during the summer but since I don't know how things will turn out in the next few weeks, I'm a little hesitant. I don't know, maybe it will cheer me up a little or it could backfire. I also have Christmas Presents to make and those are going to take me some time... Hmm... Well, I'm not going to fuss with any of it right now.     


  1. I think you should do NanoWriMo - if you can focus enough to work on Chloe and get some headway done I think you will feel very accomplished before Christmas comes around. *hugs*

    1. I think I am going to have to do NanoWriMo now because Lucas wants to be my buddy this year. I can't disappoint the pseudo-brother.

  2. Hope you are feeling a little better today Hannah. Not been so good here either, full moon affects me. Did you see the eclipse? I missed it cos was in bed lol, maybe next one!!
    blessings, alison xx

    1. I missed it too. I didn't get outside in time. I'm so sorry that you missed it because you were in bed, that's no fun! I hope you are feel better soon.
      I had to deal with some stuff regarding what's going on and it wasn't pleasant and I have more things I need to do. But aside from the usual hurting and emotional things (and learning something new today that I didn't know), I am trucking along. XX
