Two Ways Cannot Be One

idyllic has moved to tumblr, here.

I'm not going to delete this blog, I might even continue to update. My tumblr blog and this one are going to be different. This one wasn't enough about my own life, more just images that I found interesting. I want to expand.

I'll probably log in now and then to see posts from the blog's that I follow.

This is not good-bye, merely a diversion between two paths.

Happy 4th!

I had these photos left from my 17th birthday party. We look so free and we danced around with sparklers. I thought it fit the fireworks and freedom theme.

Have a wonderful day!

June Weddings

My uncle got married last month! I wish that I could have gone. It looks like such a beautiful ceremony on the beach. I would love to someday have a wedding like theirs. It was only my uncle, his new bride, and her two children. I haven't met her and her children yet (as they live far away), but I'm excited to have a new aunt and younger cousins!

Words Dripping Down the Walls

This is what my floor looks like. And my mind.

Alice and an Airbender

So, I found some stills for upcoming 2010 movies I'm very exited about. Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland and M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender (based on the Nickelodeon show, Avatar: The Last Airbender).

Alice in Wonderland looks really trippy; set in the perfect mad dreamland as the books. Johnny Depp is playing the Mad Hatter, which I'm quite excited about. Alice is played by a 19 year old actress, Mia Wasikowska. She seems quite perfect for the role to me. Supposedly, this adaption is taking place in Alice's teen years after the events in 'Through the Looking Glass'. Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathway have both been cast to play Queens. The costumes are brilliant from what I've seen from my sneaking around the internet and I hope to be in a movie theater March 5th when the film is coming out.

As for The Last Airbender, I'm truly excited that it's being made into a movie. Last summer, watching Avatar was like my thing at lunchtime and I was so disappointed when the final movie came out (I loved it, but I didn't want it to end!) Casting choices have been getting a lot of flack, however, and I don't blame anyone for wanting to protest the choices. White actors are portraying Asian and Inuit characters, or at least, the original show seemed to be heavily influenced by Asian culture, though placed in a fantasy world, so what the characters true ethnic group is really debatable. I'm not taking a side until after I've seen the movie, (or at least figured out what is fact and what is rumor) because I can't be certain who is actually in this movie. I mean, first it was Jesse McCartney playing Zuko and now it's Dev Patel. Who knows what's real and what isn't? (Alice's world isn't so different from our own, it appears...)

Falling Rocks

Love - a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker. -Anonymous

Wild and Free

All good things are wild, and free.
- Henry David Thoreau

I went to the zoo on Thursday with my best friend, Elise. There was a chimpanzee sucking on ice, tiny monkeys grooming each other, two reptiles that have been at the zoo as long as I've been alive and are bigger then me now, and a sleeping red panda named Toby.

I bought a stuffed red panda before we left and named it Toby, just as a memory of our adventure. My legs are still sore.

Note: If anyone has sources for the pictures I use, please share! I'd love to give credit! I get most of these pictures from and I can't really find who to give credit to.

Seventeen is Just as Sweet

So my 17th birthday was May 28th. I didn't have my party until that weekend and now I've been much to lazy about putting pictures up. It was a costume party and I was a faery. A faery queen to be exact. You don't see my crown in any of these pictures, but it's implied. :D

My court was made of a naughty school girl and teacher, the devil with huge boobs, a sultry pirate, a Hawaiian girl, a crazy fan girl, and my friend Mylynn as herself (opps!).

I forgot to take pictures of the our outdoor setting, so I will have to leave it to your imagination. There were floating butterflies and dangling lanterns and excellent food.

I don't know if 18 can top this?

Love and Butterflies!

Girl, Interrupted

"Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted."

I thought I'd share the books I've been reading the last couple of months. I'm a very avid reader, as you can tell, I've got an average of 10 books a month. It really depends on my mood, I think. I like to escape to these other worlds and live vicariously through the characters.

I've labeled (***) the books I've enjoyed most, but I've mentioned a majority of those in previous posts, so the titles might look a little familiar.

I've enjoyed all of the books I've read these last couple of weeks. Each of them had something unique to offer. I could write summaries of every single one of them, but I figured I'd leave that to the professionals, and instead I've linked all of the books' amazon pages.

A little note: most of these books contain profanity and/or adult themes and content. Except for Changeling, Heck: Where the Bad Kids Go and most of the Grimm's fairytales, they're for more mature readers.
