My name is Krissy and I am 20 years old. I'm a twin. I like to spend my time cooking, playing video games, drawing, writing, reading, quilting, watching movies, and shopping. I also like art, manga, Lolita fashion, and steam punk.

With my wide variety of interest I'll probably post a lot of random things. I like to post the covers of the books I've read. :3

Kaichou wa Maid-sama Episode 1: Misaki Is a Maid!

My twin sister got me watching this. I watched it until there were no more episodes. I’m definitely going to pick up this up in manga form next time I’m in a book store.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

GBAFireEmblemSS

This is the game I’m currently replaying. I’ve played through it twice before: once on medium and once on easy. Now I’m playing trough it on hard mode! The only problem is: I’m trying to get every unit and have them all survive. This game is a bit brutal. If you lose one of your characters in battle they die and you can never use them again. I’ll tell you now, I do a lot of resetting because I get people killed a lot. Also when your units level up it adds stats at random. One time, my thief, Colm leveled up and it didn’t add to any of his stats at all. At the end of this game you can keep playing at this tower and this castle thing. The monsters there sometimes drop things to boost stats. Or you can get an item that lets you access as secret shop but I can’t remember when or where it drops. Colm’s pretty strong already though so I’m not too worried about it.

FE:Colm/Coma

(Colm in the English one, Coma in the Japanese version)

I love the art in/from this game, and the tiny people! A few of my friends never read the story when they play through any of the Fire Emblem games. (They just tap start through all of cut scenes.) I always do though, and this one has to have my favorite one. Maybe it’s the twins in this one, I don’t know.

Sorry no screen shots of game play. I’m too lazy to search the web and find them.

.hack// Another Birth vol.2//mutation_
I love the cover art! I was pleasantly surprised that this batch of .hack// books are in Black Rose’s point of view. I couldn’t find vol. 1 so I just went ahead and read vol. 2 anyway. I just finished reading this manga sized novel. I love how I can put it on my shelf and it fits in with the rest of them.
I wish more novels came in this shape. ;3

I don’t normally read BL, but the art style was cute and I’m a sucker for books about struggling classical musicians.
Just looking for the 2nd one now!

I’m not a fan of the black and white one but the others are so cute! I’ve wanted this for a while but it will remain out of my reach. $68 and then shipping on top of that. Maybe I’ll see the price drop or even my size. :L *drool*

Edit: I fixed the hyperlink so it takes you to the actual site instead of the image. Forgive me for posting the wrong one, it was late.

These are white clover. I sort of understand why most of my neighbors see them as weeds but I honestly would prefer to have a yard full of them over sharp looking grass. I love their little, rounded, heart shaped leaves and their white flowers. I read a while ago that a gift of clovers can signify a promise. I think they&#8217;d look cute in a bouquet even if they have short stems.
I read here and here that the white clover in North Carolina produce cyanide to keep slugs from eating them and that&#8217;s why they have a white stripe across their leaves. They are safe for humans to eat though, in NC anyway.
White and red clover flowers can both be used to make tea but I haven&#8217;t tried it yet. The young leaves do make a tasty addition to salads though.

I’m 17 and people keep telling me I look 22 or something

not good xD

lol well I’m 21 and people say I look 17 (the youngest I’ve got was 15 8|) 

I’m 20 and people tell me I look 13 or 14 all the time =__=

I’m also 20, and when people see me with my same-aged boyfriend they ask, “Wait you’re dating a high schooler?” They think I’m a freshmen or something. >_<

Loosely Stitched Together Memories

You must understand that I remember very little of my childhood. There are a few very vivid segments of events. I remember my mom used to lay out fabric across the floor in the living room to cut, and she was always embroidering on long trips. Thinking back, I realize she must have been working on this quilt maybe before I was even born. It was a peacock quilt. I think it was around my sister and my 16th birthday when she finished it. I wish I had taken a picture. It was them most beautiful quilt I have ever seen.

All of the greens, blues, and browns swirling together in their swishing tails; and their beautiful emerald and sapphire bodies; the creamy white of  the blocks’ background that brought life to the dark colors; the vivid, dark green boarder that pulled your eyes to the quilt itself; and all the movement created by the thread stitched carefully around each bird and block. She had made many quilts while I was growing up, but this quilt was her masterpiece.

She gave it to her mother before I graduated high school. I think my grandmother had seen her working on it all those years never knowing that it would be given to her.

Back in high school, I learned about quilt making and its history, and I made a small simple quilt for my senior exit project, after being mentored by a close family friend. In case you don’t know what the senior exit project is:  It was this huge semester long project that my senior class had to do in order to graduate in Concord, North Carolina. I’m not sure how many other high schools had to do them but it pretty much replaced senior English class, or English IV. (I was looking forward to English IV my sophomore year because I found out that it had a ton of British literature in the class. :( But my junior year come and the class changed horridly. Not that all the aspects of the senior exit project were bad, though the project was extremely flawed.) That aside, I made one quilt and I was hooked! I couldn’t stop thinking of quilting. I’ve since drafted up several quilts on graph paper, though I currently lack the resources to make them all. I’ve started patch working with spare fabric from clothes that my sisters and I out grew long ago.

My mother, with all that she taught me, never had the time to teach me how to quilt, but she inspired me and encouraged me. Inspiration goes a long way. Maybe one day I’ll be able to give her a masterpiece of my own!

This winter I plan to start work on a quilt with my mom and maybe stitch together some memories before I move out.

Regina Spekto's “The Call”

It was in my one of the Narnia movies.

A pretty song that seems to draw tears to my eyes sometimes.

Once again, this is the book cover of what I&#8217;ve just finished reading.
The Dragon Heir left a bitter taste in my mouth. It had a good ending, but it was like tasting dark chocolate for the first time after only having eating sweet milk chocolate for a long time. The creaminess of the cocoa butter was still there, the sweet taste of sugar was still there, yet the bitter taste of the cocoa was stronger almost burning. Still good to eat, just bitter.
Hmm&#8230; once again I find myself comparing things to food.

I ran into this song on Pandora Radio. It’s really epic sounding. It makes me want to draw or paint. Too bad I can’t find any paper around!
