Raskashism

Last night I had a sleepover with one of my friends. We stayed up past midnight. I'm really tired. We were coming up with our own 'religion'. It's called Raskashism.
Soon I'll tell you a little more about it.

BONE





There is a really cool graphic novel series called Bone.  It's really good.  There are eleven books.  Two of the books aren't exactly in the series, Rose and The Bone Handbook.  They are all done by Jeff Smith.  One of my friend's has met him.  He says Jeff is really nice.  The last Bone book came out a few years ago.  He is starting to make a new series called Quest For The Spark.  It isn't a graphic novel but a novel.  Jeff Smith is illustrating  it and it's written by Tom Sniegoski.  I've read all the Bone's and I just got the first Quest For The Spark book and it's really good.If you like magic and fantasy this is the book for you.

Caw!, Caw! (American Crow) A.K.A. Birdwatching

     I have recently gotten into birdwatching.  I've already seen a bunch of birds this spring.  I like birdwatching because it is very relaxing.  I love how I hear them singing outside my window.
I also like their slender build, and especially how their wings fold up.  Most birds I can identify right away, like the Brown Headed Cowbird, or the American Robin, but their will always some mystery bird that I don't have the time to identify so I let it slide.  I have noticed this bird that has often been flying around in our field that I haven't gotten a good enough look at so I don't know what it is.  I think it lives in tree close to the field.  It's really nagging me.

     I have three birding guides.  'The Peterson Field Guide To Birds Of North America', 'Florida birds' (I don't live in Florida, so I don't use this one so much.), and 'Vermont Birds'.
The Peterson one has all the birds that have ever been seen in North America.  The Florida birds one has all the most common birds in Florida and the Vermont one has all the most common birds in Vermont.  Right now I'm using the Vermont Birds book the most because if I use the Peterson one, I constantly have to be flipping pages, whereas with the vermont birds one there are no pages.  But some times I still have to use the Peters.  
Ex: today I was looking out my window and a saw a strange bird.  I looked in my Vermont Birds and I saw it was a Brown Headed Cowbird.  Next to it I saw another bird that looked like a Sparrow of some sort, or was it?  Another second and I thought "thats no Sparrow!".  I automatically went for the Peterson guide  and figured out it was only a female Brown Headed Cowbird.  You can always depend on The Peterson Field Guide To Birds Of North America.

Rich

Today I met Rich, one of my friends dad's.  It's really awesome.  
Just for the record, he told me to write this.  He is very handsome guy.  I know you think this is weird, but bear with me.  


P.S. I'm not trying to offend anybody.
P.P.S. I just turned ten on april twelfth.  Oh Ya.  I got a GoPro (GoPro), a double bass peddle (for drums [double bass]), art supplies, a subscription to the stone soup magazine (Stone Soup), a journal, a $50 gift card to Amazon (Amazon), a $25 dollar gift card to Barnes&Noble (B&N), a Hat Trick (also for drums [Hat Trick]), and rollerblades.

Vegetarian

Just a few days ago I decided to become a vegetarian.  It is a very healthy option.  It is very hard to find vegetarian food in my town because there are all these steakhouses (not that they are bad or anything).  It is very hard to find protein, but when you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy to find reasonable protein.  I heard about a famous basketball player who is a vegan.  Here are some reasonable sources of vegetarian protein:
-Tofu
-Beans
-basically all starchy foods, like potatoes

I also highly recommend two great songs too:
-Wonderwall by Oasis
-Family Picture by Donna the buffalo

There is also a really funny video youtube:
-Crazy guy jumps into frozen pool 

I hope you like how I'm posting more frequently.
