In a place where the sole purpose of existence is to work to produce the goods that the rest of the world use, what happens when one girl is given a chance to change her life? Trouble.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.

Well, I'm in the kitchen, so the nearest thing to me was the Bible on the table so here ya go:

"I have baptized you in water, but He Himself will baptize you in the Holy Spirit. And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John. And immediately, coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens being parted and the Spirit as a dove descending upon Him. And a voice came out of the heavens: You are My Son, the Beloved; in You I have found my delight. And immediately the Spirit thrust Him out into the wilderness. And He was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan; and He was with the wild animals, and the angels ministered to Him. And after John was delivered up, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God has drawn near."

-Matthew 1:8-15

And since that wasn't my book, I ran down to my room and grabbed the first book I saw, 'Jane Austen: The Completed Novels'.

" '...You may guess, after all these expences, how very far we must be from being rich, and how acceptable Mrs. Ferrars's kindness is.'
'Certainly,' said Elinor, 'and assistend by her liberality, I hope you may yet live to be in easy circumstances.'
'Another year or two may do much towards it,' he gravely replied; 'but however there is still a great deal to be done. There is not a stone laid of Fanny's greenhouse, and nothing but the plan of the flower-garden marked out.'
'Where is the green-house to be?'
'Upon the knoll behind the house. The old walnut trees are all come down to make room for it...'

-Sense and Sensibility

And I'm breaking the last rule. I'm not tagging anyone. However, if you happen to read this and want to do it, feel free to do so. Have a nice day!

So, I've been tagged by AnimeGoil to tell why I picked my name. Not that I think anyone will comment. :D But, at any rate, here I go. I read Paul Lawrence Dunbar's poem titled 'The Mask' and became a little obsessed with the idea. I look around, and at myself, and see a myriad of masks. And by this I mean social mask; masks of politeness, masks of invulnerability, masks of happiness. And behind the masks, people are angry, hurt, selfish, not who they seem to be. I am one of those people, though I won't tell you which category I fall under. I'm Masquerading as Me.

I hereby tag Musicsporty1. :D

What Kind of Nerd Are You?

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.

Does anyone know of a Jaejoong background with him in the white suit he wore for the Try My Love performance during their first Japan concert? Or is there anyone that wouldn't mind making one for me, or teaching me how to make one? I'm desperate for a hot Jaejoong background, but I don't have any bribes. Help?

(no subject)

We wear the mask that grins and lies.
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes.
This debt we pay to human guile,
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile.
And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world be over-wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.

We smile, but, O great Christ our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!

~Paul Laurence Dunbar
