Recently I've been getting really annoyed with my hair always falling in front of my eyes, so although the last time I attempted this was a disaster, I decided to cut my own bangs. I don't think it looks too horrible, results?
Cutting my bangs made me want to chop off all of my hair again, and I'm debating between doing that or continuing to grow out my hair so I can get the A-line I've been wanting since last summer. Thoughts?
Anyways, today I practiced my duo for the first time today with my partner, Zach. I think our piece has a lot of potential, we just need to nail the accents. Here's my favorite line from our duo:
"...It is too simple.
Life, if it's like anything at all,
is like an avalanche.
To blame the little ball of snow that starts it all,
to say it is the cause,
is just as true as it is meaningless."

Due to the beta-testers flooding the site, the general access date has been pushed back to the end of October. You can keep up with all updates and feedback by visiting the Pottermore Insider here: http://insider.pottermore.com/. Also, I'm going to fill you guys in with more details about the site.
When you first create your account and have access to the site, you'll go to your Pottermore profile. Towards the top of the page, there's a bunch of dots and a few different symbols. These represent the seven different Harry Potter books and the chapters with in. You'll need to explore each chapter to collect items for your trunk, and you can also collect Wizards Cards. You don't get a wand until about Chapter Three, but it's totally worth the wait. You'll be given a series of questions, and then your wand will choose you. If you unlock the exclusive content, you'll be able to find out what the different parts of your wand say about your personality. You'll be sorted into your house the same way; and I'll warn you right now, there are some hard questions on that quiz. It's not like it tests your knowledge, but the questions themselves are just questions you wouldn't normally be asked, so they're really hard to answer.
I won't go into any more detail, but I will say that you can brew potions and duel other wizards to earn house points and help your house win the cup.
Hope you're excited for the site, I think anyone who joins will find it really interesting :)
Last night I got my beta-tester welcome email from Pottermore, which I've been waiting for for months.Exploring around the site, I was really disappointed at first. But as I progressed through the chapters I started to get into it. Being chosen by my wand(A Redwood 12.5 inch with a Phoenix feather core ;D) and sorted into my house(Ravenclaw) was really fun and interesting. I'm sure everyone joining the site next month will be very impressed with all the work that's been done.
After an extremely long break from Minecraft, two of my friends have gotten me back into it. I've been working on my world practically nonstop ever since last night, and compared to what it was before, it's changed dramatically. Here's a sneak peek of the exterior :)
