  • Mood: Stunned
  • Listening to: My Mom Talking on the Phone
  • Reading: The Street by Anne Petry (Just finished it)
  • Watching: YouTube
  • Playing: Nothing
  • Eating: Nothing
  • Drinking: Nothing
So first off, sorry I haven't been online in a while; that's a mix between visiting colleges and completing my summer homework which, for the first time, I haven't procrastinated on! (Yay!)

But yeah, I figured I'd write an actual Journal-y journal for once since I literally just finished my summer reading book seconds before writing this and I need to talk to someone about it, and my mom's on the phone right now so I can't tell her. 

This year, the seniors in my high school are required to read and write a response essay to The Street, a book by Anne Petry. And holy crap on a cracker, the ending of that book has me shell shocked! 

I don't want to give anything away in case anyone is interested in reading it, but the book was published in 1946 and takes place in the late 1940s. It's a fictional story that tells the story of a young, black single mother named Lutie Johnson as she struggles against racism, sexism, and poverty on a street in Harlem. I'll be honest, I wasn't looking forward to reading this book because racism and sexism are addressed in some shape or form in every school book I've read since eighth grade. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, because it's an extremely important issue that we need to be educated about, but at the same time it's one of those things where you'll be happy you read it, but don't enjoy reading (because let's face it: it's a very depressing subject). 

But my god, I fell in love with the book on the first page. The descriptive writing smoothly weaves the English language into vivid and beautiful imagery. It's that special level of descriptive writing that is rarely found in books. The language somehow managed to make everything sound beautiful, and for those of you that don't know: I'm a sucker for descriptive writing. 
The story was unmistakably character driven (my favorite kind of story), and touches on each character's story and makes you pity even the most hatable characters when you learn what made them the way they are. All the characters feel so real, so human, that I had to keep reminding myself that this is a fictional story. 

And the ending.... Oh my god, the ending.

I read so much that I've become jaded to the point where it's hard to surprise me in literature; I'll often predict a plot point or fail to cry during a sad scene because I've seen it before in some other story.

My hands are still shaking.

In all my years of reading a story has only done that to me once before. 

I felt I needed to share this with you, because I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the subject or likes character driven stories. I don't want to give away anything about the ending but my god, does it leave an impact. 

This book completely captures the elements of what it's about, everything about it is so perfectly done, and you need to read it. Seriously, like, now. Read it.

Well, after two long years of this being WAY out of date... I'm updating my bio! XD

Hello all! I'm Sabrina! I'm obsessed with drawing and reading, and want to be an elementary school teacher as an adult!

I'm also turning 17 this July! :D (I lied about my age when I first signed up and I don't know how to change it.)

I don't have a driver's license yet, because.... Well, because I'm lazy and the drivers in my town are TERRIBLE. Not eager to join that chaos, thank you!

Anyway, here are some facts about me:

I have a very obsessive nature, I'm either totally obsessed with something or uninterested. There's no middle ground.

I'm an introvert. No, I'm not antisocial, just an introvert. (If you've seen that online thing called "How to Deal with an Introvert" you know what I mean.)

My name on fanfiction.net is Zellona. I've only written one story so far, but I hope to write more.

I'm a beta reader on fan fiction.net for someone called The Consulting Panda, look her up! ^-^ (The story I beta is called "The Two of Us Against the World")

I love doing photography, digital art, traditional art, and writing.

I love animals.

I've been told I'm very self aware and mature for my age.

I'm not kidding, my parents are more immature than I am.

...Don't tell them I said that.

I'm a fervent reader, if you see me during my spare time I'm almost always reading either a book or fanfiction on my phone.

My favorite genre in writing is hurt/comfort, which you can NEVER find in published works (you get the hurt, but not the comfort) so I have to turn to fan fiction.

I am supremely incredibly sassy.

I am a smart ass.

If I had a pet donkey, I would name him Jack.

I have ADD (ADHD without the hyperactivity)

I just got my braces off late March after having them for three years! YAY!

I have a ten year old dog named Bella with the energy of a puppy.

I love playing video games (Some favorites of mine right now are Zoo Tycoon, Minecraft, Dragon Ball Xenoverse, The Sims 3, and Age of Mythology)

I adore Bella and see her as a sister instead of just a dog.


And that's all I can think of right now! :meow:
