The Past Six Months for Me

Hey! FantasyFan101 is back!

 

I’m guest blogging again! Last time I was here, it was October. It’s been quite a half-year for me, all really fun and other stuff. So, let’s get started!

First on the list is BOOKS! I’ve become a book addict since I last spoke on Rd2Gold. Seriously. It started a while back when I read the Book Thief. After I read that, I felt the need to read a lot more, and more, MORE!!!! So after I became a book addict, I started to read Harry Potter. Mind = BLOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT WAS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!hp72

Second are Marvel movies. For most of my life (until February 13, 2014) I could really have cared a lot less about Captain America and Iron Man. They kind of didn’t have any appeal to me. So then #1kid came home from the library with three movies. One was the Avengers. So now I like it. A lot. wintersoldierposterNow I have seen all of Phase One and Two (so far). My favorite one out of all of them is Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And I’m extremely excited for The Amazing Spider-Man 2!

Thirdly is all the movies I’ve been seeing. #1kid may have told you about some of these. But yes, there’s been a lot. The Book Thief (of course), The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Monuments Men, Ender’s Game, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Lego Movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and most recently, Heaven is for Real. All of these were very good.desolationofsmaug

Fourthly, I’m still doing archery. I’ve been really good at it!

And lastly but not leastly is Bernard and Scratch. Bernard and Scratch is a novella I am plotting currently. It’s about a boy (Bernard) who meets a six foot, 12-year-old monster (Scratch).

So, that’s how I’ve been in the past six months. It was quite epic.

If you have any questions on my favorite books or other questions about books, questions about my favorites list of Marvel movies, or any questions on Bernard and Scratch, please comment.

Lil’ Bit of Culture: Land of the Long White Cloud

Hello, friends! Welcome to Road2Gold!

Maybe you remember the time when I blogged about Japan. Well this is my new-zealand-mapHobbitonblog about New Zealand, Land of the Long White Cloud. I would like to go there someday because of the scenery, Lord of the Rings was filmed there, my favorite bird the Kiwi, and there’s plenty of cool things to do there.

The landscapes and scenery are beautiful. There are huge mountains, rivers and lakes, islands, and grasslands, and even volcanoes. New Zealand is located between the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea so you’ll a lot of beaches and waves.

The Maori, the tribal group of New Zealand, preserve their way of living as hongimuch as they can. They are talented in wood carving, dancing, and singing in their special way. A greeting they often use still is the Hongi, an act of rubbing noses.

The climate and weather here depends where you are. In the south, it gets colder seeing that Antarctica is getting close. The north is much warmer. There are actually volcanoes and boiling hot springs up north and in the sea.

So pack your Baggins and let’s go to New Zealand!
