What I Woke Up To This Morning

Sorry I didn't do my corner view, I had a bad cold. So here's a post to make up for it. :)

corner view "my favorite actor"

Well this is a fun one! I already told you about Robin Williams and Tom Hanks. Those are two of my favorite actors. If there's a new movie with either of them in it, I'll see it. But currently, the actor I'm really into is Zac Efron. Some of you European people probably haven't heard of him. He's more of an American boy. :) It's good for me to be remotely into what other kids are into. Or at least that's what my mom thinks. Zac is 23 years old and has been acting since he was my age, 14. He said the kids in school used to call him "the theater dork" and he considers himself a bit of a nerd. I love nerds! :) He got small guest rolls on TV shows for a while.

Here's a picture from his first guest spot. The TV show was Firefly. He was 14 here.

Then one day in 2006, he found his breakthrough. "High School Musical." In the first movie, Zac's singing parts weren't sung by him (he was lip syncing to someone else's voice) because he wasn't quite good enough of a singer yet. But the second and third "High School Musical" movies he did all of his own singing. "High School Musical" is more of a kid film, but my whole family and I enjoy it. There are three movies in the series.
 In High School Musical One

Right now, Zac's doing more dramatic acting because he already showed us he can sing and dance. :) He recently made a movie called "Charlie St. Cloud." Charlie's younger eleven year old brother was killed in a car crash when Charlie was fifteen. (Charlie is now 23.) Every day, Charlie meets with Sam, his younger brother, in a graveyard and plays catch with him even though Sam has died. The story's about how Charlie has to let go of his brother to live again. It makes me cry every single time I watch it. I'm a sucker for movies like this. And Zac did prove he is a really good actor.

Here are some pictures from 'Charlie St. Cloud."
 And of course it doesn't hurt that he's absolutely adorable. :) 

I've never met him, but here's the magic of Photo Editing.
 I also thought it was funny how much we looked alike when we were younger.
Plus we're wearing pretty much the exact same outfit. :P

Annabel: My Bestest Friend

Annabel is turning 12 tomorrow. I KNOW! I can't believe it either!

And to honor her on this very special of days, I've decided to do a blog post for her.

These are five of the MANY amazing qualities of my sister and best friend. :)

1. Most of the time, we never fight. It's pretty rare and usually about something silly. And even when we do, we don't stay mad at each other for more than twenty minutes.

2. She always knows the right thing to do. Usually when I'm thinking of doing something I don't know is right, I ask my trusty Annabel.

3. She's very loyal and always sticks up for me even if it's putting herself at risk.

4. She's brave. Probably the most fierce out of all of us. When it comes to certain things that is. Like kicking a boy's butt in sparring or standing up to a bully! You GO girl!

5. And lastly, she's the sweetest, kindest, most generous, awesomest, coolest, person I know. And we'll always be best friends!

Love Ya Annabel!

P.S. 12 was one of my most favorite of years so far. Out of the ones I can remember at least. :)

corner view "evening sky"

Here's my evening sky I see from my window every night. :)

Sometimes gray and filled with light

And sometimes pink and orange. More tropical, don't you think?
