I guess that my favorite genre would be comedy too - I like drama and psychological thrillers better, but I can't stomach too many of them at a time. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> And as for romance, I enjoy watching it when it's incorporated ...

I have a rather unfortunate tendency to disdain anything that becomes too popular - I try my best to avoid being categorized into the "masses". So when I got into Harry Potter, naturally, it was already in the throes of its massive popularity. I decided that it was overrated to the extreme. But at m...

Mulan is definitely a favorite, because it's cute and funny. And it helps that Mulan is such a kick-butt type. But an honorable mention goes to Lion King. I cried when I first saw that movie... I will forever mourn the death of Simba's father. It's still the most tragic movie I've ever seen. /smile....

I've always liked the name Isabella. It's just so pretty Well, the name itself means "pretty", so I suppose the name is forced to exude beauty. And as for my last name, which I like very much, I stole it out of a book. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gi...

Movie-wise, my favorite characters have to be Draco, Snape, and Lucius. They are absolutely hilarious and have the best lines in the movies. In my opinion, a lot of characters took on lives of their own after the movies, and inspired me greatly... Like how I had no idea that Lucius was so hot before...

How Many Books Do You Read Per Year

As I am preparing for the SATs, I have found out that statistics show that high scorers read at least 14 hours per week (of course, this counts menus, magazines, internet, etc.) I am wondering exactly how many books my fellow HOLers read in a year - to figure out if I should go out and read some mor...

Harry Potter. It just is.

I've read most of these series, and loved them as a child - but really, nothing can compare to Harry Potter. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

I love watching movies. They're a favorite hobby of mine, even if I don't get obsessed like some of my friends. I'd say that some basic favorites are Fight Club, Interview with a Vampire, Mean Girls, Dude..Where's My Car, Austin Powers movies, 10 Thing I Hate About You, and Gattaca. I can't think of...

I admit openly here and now that I hate to practice, but I love music. I play the flute, and I've played on and off for about five years now. I've participated in school orchestras and I find it much easier to play with a group than by yourself. I mean, flute is a wind instrument, and it's really di...
