Blogging on Phone

So frustrated!!

I typed out a post on my phone (yup, finally got a smartphone ladies and gents! welcome me to the 21st century! haha) through the blogger app on there, and then it didn't save any (ANY) of my new changes!!! So I had less than half of what I wanted to post!

I finally finished it (took me the entire day to type it, since I was writing it between classes and then looked it over this evening) and it wasn't there!!! When I tried publishing it, it reverted back to what I had saved like once at the very start of the day.

ugh -- to express my anger.

not that anyone might care, but no semi-fun post today. :P Sorry.

Over and out. Hope your day/night is going better than mine!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. FEELS (with short description because pictures!)

Greetings earthlings!

I have recently started watching the TV show, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The show takes place in the aftermath of the first Avenger's movie after the attack on the world by aliens. Okay, maybe the attack on LA (I can't remember which one, but it was an attack on a major city--lots of destruction, aliens, explosions, the Hulk...you get the picture....if you don't, then go watch it).

I am on Season 1. And I just finished watching episode 6 (F.Z.Z.T.)

I do not want to give away any spoilers, but I want to let you know that I cried. Like a baby. Like I was chopping onions at the same time. CRIED TEARS. The characters are amazing, and they go through so much in this episode. Halfway through, one conflict is resolved and I'm sitting there thinking "Oh, okay, good they solved that problem. Wow, that was a short episode." And then I check and there's 20 freaking minutes left!!!

20 minutes left with a resolved conflict in a TV show is NEVER A GOOD SIGN. Never. EVER.

Dread filled me then.

And I was right!!!

Tears people. Tears. Ohmygosh. I don't think I can get over that.

It's writing and acting like this that makes me want to write stories with the same emotion and feelings and characterization and awesomeness. This. Is it.

Go watch the Avenger's movie (number 1), then watch this show. You may think it starts off slow or not as exciting, BUT TRUST ME. Already into episode 6 and it's going CRAZY WELL. I love all the characters. There are many funny, wonderful parts. At this point, if anything happens to any of the crew, I will....probably, yes, cry again, but I will forever be furious. Forever.



 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
(I have attached a Wikipedia link to the show, if you want to find out more info. Just promise that you won't look at SPOILERS...like I have)

Here is a brief intro of the characters in the show so far and my feelings or thoughts towards them (if I have any) SO MANY EMOTIONS.

Daisy "Skye" Johnson (portrayed by, Chloe Bennet)

Chloe Bennet as Skye

I absolutely love this character and see so much of myself in her personality (that might sound super weird, but it's true). She loves and cares so much and she's not afraid to show it. She let's her feelings show and she's determined to help people and her friends. She's stubborn, sarcastic, and is gradually becoming kick-ass. Favorite character so far!

Grant Ward (portrayed by, Brett Dalton)

Brett Dalton as Agent Ward

Not only is he beautiful, he's also fierce. He can kick basically anyone's ass. I don't have much to say about him now, except that his eyebrow move game is on point and he's cute.

SIDENOTE: He also reminds me of the Burn Notice character, Michael Westen, who is played by Jeffrey Donovan. And although I have not finished all the seasons of Burn Notice, I love it and Michael Westen. (I think I'm on season 5 or 6).
Jeffrey Donovan

Moving on!

Leo Fitz (portrayed by Iain De Caestecker)

Iain De Caestecker as Fitz

First things first, I love his accent. Yes, he is Scottish. And I love Scotland. I want to visit there again someday. ANYWAY, Fitz is adorable and he is basic "nerd" type of the group and he's awesome. He cares so much about Simmons (his lab partner) and they do everything together as far as I know in episode 6 of season 1 and I love the name Fitzsimmons because they are one person.

Jemma Simmons (portrayed by Elizabeth Henstridge)

She is the other half of the Fitzsimmons duo, and she is smart and determined, and kind. She cares about the greater good of the group and wants the best for her friends and fellow agents.

Fitzsimmons (the dynamic duo)
Simmons is the main reason I cried in this 6th episode TBH. Her and Fitz. They are beautiful together. I want them to be together...but I am okay if they don't (right now), although I can't see them with anyone else. Nothing is stronger than Fitzsimmons <3

Other Characters in the group that are equally important:
Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson (aka Agent Coulson or AC--as Skye calls him)
I like Coulson because he's like the Dad of the group that is also kick-ass. He's awesome. And he's from the first Avengers movie! (Watch it, so I don't spoil it for you here...I'm trying really hard not to!)

Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May (aka May)
She is also kick-ass. She is the ninja of the group and flies the plane/jet....plane that they travel in. Maybe because she did the voice, but she reminds me of Mulan. She rarely shows her emotions and takes action. She does care about the crew and the safety of her fellow agents and will never stop being bad-ass.

FINALLY, here are some group pics! Such candid ;D

This gang is awesome.

That is all for now, dreamers!

Over and out :)

The Post with Many Things (day April 29th edition)

Hello People of the World!
This is Rachel Rae writing :)

Right now I am listening to: Lindsey Stirling's NEW ALBUM: Shatter Me. (more specifically, the song: We Are Giants (ft. Dia Frampton) by Lindsey Stirling. The album is amazing and I highly recommend it!! Listen to it!!!! o.o :D

Random Picture of the Moment goes to *DRUMROLL*


Moving on to 1st topic:

Krispy Kreme
Yesterday there was a deal here where if you bought a dozen donuts at Krispy Kremes, you get a free dozen. Therefore it was needed. My friend bought one. We almost finished it! (Amongst the four of us) Not bad, I'd say. :)

I had two, the sugar one and the other sugar one. Ha, just kidding. My bad. The grainy sugar covered one and the maple sugar one. Hmmmmm-hmm. Yup. Good stuff. OH and a bite of the chocolate glazed one.

The actual picture I tried taking on my phone looks bad so I'm not about to post it. It's dark...blurry...a true horror to photographers, and I don't wish that upon anyone.

Moving on to 2nd topic!


AHHHHHHH this TV show!!! Ohmygosh. O_O Yes. It's...a serious love/hate relationship.

I watched the 1st show a while ago, probably when it first came out because I remember that I got it when it was Free on iTunes (deals, man, deals)

And I liked the idea of it. I liked the characters (DEAN AND SAM FOREVER OHMYGOSH) but I hate horror things...anything scary. I hate it. hatehatehatehatehate. Yes, I can say hate. I hate horror. And that first episode is mighty scary if you asked me.

Anyway, now I've been watching some with my friends and one of them is all the way caught up and the other one it on--like--episode 18 or something of Season 1. Soooo I just re-started there, with them, when they were watching it. I'm still creeped out to no end, but I cover my ears and close my eyes and squeal like a little girl at the scary parts. You can especially tell by the music. Which is why I hate listening to scary things mostly. Looking is bad too, I can't tell which one is worse. So don't ask that.

Yes, we are bad asses and we know it POSE

I like Dean. :}

And here is Sam because I thought this picture looked cool as well and I like him too:

But I still like Dean better (as of now--Season 1) :)

And if you want a shirtless picture of him, feel free to Google it. You're welcome.

Okay that's all from me for now!

I wanted to get this done yesterday...Instead of in the wee early hours of this morning, which makes it the next day--the day after my post is supposed to have happened, but you know...LIFE, MAN.

Anyway. Bed time soon for me!
Hope your day/night was/is going perfectly! If not, cheer up. There's always tomorrow. HUGS! :)

Love lots,
Rachel Rae!

The Post with Many Things (day April 28th edition)

Hello People of the World!
This is Rachel Rae writing :)

Random Picture of the Moment goes to *DRUMROLL*

Welcome to Planet Earth. Or the U.S. Don't really know if it's different other places. Let me know your thoughts if you wish. (Love the Princess Bride movie! "As you wish!" Love.) :)


I hope you are having a lovely day/night or had a lovely day/night.

Right now I'm listening to: Wake Me Up by Avicii (which *FUN FACT* I always think about spelling "Avicci", you know? Like the Italian way. At least that what I tell myself anyway. Ha) :P

And the song that I listened to before that I have had on repeat ever since it came out is: Shatter Me by Lindsey Stirling.

WHICH TRANSITIONS NICELY INTO MY 1st "TOPIC": (Psstt, if I do caps, it doesn't mean I am yelling, it just means I am titling something or separating words...from...other words...it's just the way I operate. FYI. Warning. Yah)


I was hoping this wouldn't be a specific topic blog today, but another *FUN FACT* for right now is that the Amazing Lindsey Stirling's new album "Shatter Me" comes out tomorrow (4/29/14, Tuesday in the United States) and I'm super excited! I can't wait. She has already come out with two of the album's singles (I believe at least two) and they are already amazing!!!

#1 - Beyond the Veil

#2 - Shatter Me

Question: Lindsey Stirling, why are you so awesome?



The music videos are equally amazing to the music and you must watch when you get the chance! :) Highly recommended by all. (yes, I just grouped everyone into "all", what up)
NEXT TOPIC! (see what I did there? Hooray for transitions that are not smooth. Okay, onward!)
Right now I am listening to: Ain't It Fun by Paramore <3 :)
At Target the other day to get...stuff. And saw this fun sign (to the right):
Yay for Lindsey Stirling!
Anyway, I also saw so many books and it was glorious. I was freaking out. I didn't buy any though cause that's not how I roll. I'm the type of bookworm that likes to check out a whole truck load of books from the library, and read them (well, duh) and then if I absolutely love one or a series then I buy it. I have gotten several gift cards in my time for Amazon or Barnes&Noble and I most always use them for books. BOOKS BOOKS GLORIOUS BOOKS! :D (singing break, dude, come on. Roll with it) :D
Okay, also... saw this cute gift bag that I felt like taking a picture of since I love cats. And dogs, but this one is for all you cats and cat lovers out there.
NEXT TOPIC: (I think this "Next Topic" thing is starting to grow on me. I'm gonna just go with it. So please bare with me, homies)
(yay for long titles. cheers to you, long title, hopefully you didn't lose the interest of people at the third word)
Right now I am listening to: I Will Survive by Ryan Star :) <3
Okay, April 27th 2014 was yesterday, Sunday.

I got some books from my fellow book lover/buyer friend and it was awesome! (15 books, plus 2 movies, yay for my new addition to my small--but larger than most--inventory of books! haha) Pretty excited to read these over the summer!

Serious...ly, it was like my Birthday and Christmas combined. Honest.

 Maybe I should add a life event to Facebook. HA o.o

*geeking out*
LOOK AT ALL THOSE AMAZING BOOKS! [just look. at. them. and dwell. in the beautifulness] One of them is even signed O_O The "Glimmerglass" book by Jenna Black. (*FUN FACT* I typed "Shimmerglass" at first but it looked wrong. I apologize!)
I'm still amazed that I got that many books. Plus the two movies.
OH! The movies are: Sahara and Just Like Heaven (two movies  that I do like).
MOVING ON/NEXT TOPIC: (random...but here's a sneak into my thought process for a moment: When I typed "moving on" I sang it in my head like "Over There" and here is that chorus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TI73oAcmTaU)
"No More Great Ideas Down The Drain"---wow. Well, this would definitely be useful to writers, I think. I wonder if it comes with the pencil? Is the pencil waterproof? Hmmmmm, questions questions.
That was my random scrolling picture through facebook topic! YAY.
Okay, have a great time living life! Love lots!
~Rachel Rae!
P.S. All of the songs that I have mentioned in this post are songs that I like or LOVE. There you go. Happy listening if you feel so inclined!
