Feature and Follow Friday: Trading Places

Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can Read

This week's question: Tell us about a book character you’d trade places with – Suggested by Escaping Within Pages

My Response

This is actually a hard one because I read a lot of dystopia and I know very few (if any) people I would actually trade places with in a dystopia setting. I decided to go with Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. Why would I not want to trade places with her. 

Ahem. What was that? Ofcourse I had to find a picture of her reading. It would be criminal not to use it! :P Elizabeth Bennet has the elegance of a true lady, unmatched wit, intelligence, independence, and did I mention she gets to marry Mr. Darcy? Not to mention living in that household would be hilarious! I might even get the chance to give Wickham a piece of my mind (in an elegant fashion ofcourse) Yup! I think trading places with her would be quite a good trade.

What about you guys? Who would you trade places with?

Hiatus Lifted and School Started

Hello my wonderful Browsers! The hiatus has been lifted! Woohoo!!!

And guess what? Yup! You guessed it right! School has started... You're probably like:

Haha! I'm actually really excited for this new school year. I hope to do even better than last year and I would love to "Keep Moving Forward" as the Robinson's would say. :)

It's going to be a great year! 

Now what was I doing while I was away? Sadly, the florida trip was a let down. I didn't get to go due to many scheduling difficulties and all that jazz. I still got to go to the international camporee in Oshkosh!! I had a blast! Sadly, I'm like the only person that does not remember to take pictures of important events, (I'm enjoy the moment so much, I forget to capture it) so many pictures will have to wait till I can borrow them from a friend. Here's basically what went down: Honors, Fun, Lots and lots of walking. 

There were almost 40,000 people there, so there were tents everywhere! This is my second Oshkosh experience and I can't wait to go back in 2019!

There was a play everyday based on Daniel every night. Yes, I'm talking about Daniel from the bible. I wish you guys had all been there. I can't even type properly because I'm still really exhilarated from the experience. There's just no way to describe it. You had to be there. However, I will try.

This year's international camporee was titled "Faithful Forever" and focused on Daniel's faithfulness to God while he was taken into Babylon. There were people from everywhere! It was an amazing sight to see! It actually started raining the first day we got there and the last day of the event. The play was ending when it started raining, but it wasn't quite finished. The wonderful actors decided to stick it out through the rain and keep their performance up. Many people left, but a lot of people stayed as well. We were getting soaked, but we didn't care. It was too good of a show to miss. I'm really glad I got the opportunity to go, and hope that everybody could get the same chance as I did. 

Did I mention there was FOOD? Yes! Food from everywhere! It is an international camporee after all. Roti, spinach patties, churros etc. It was amazing! I apologize for the lack of pictures.

I'm glad to be back!
