Kade and Magic

Okay, I think today is going to be Name Day. I might do the names of my friends or of famous people sometimes, but probably I'll mostly do random names that I think are cool.

Today's name is *drumroll*: Kade!

No reason behind this name; it's just one of my favorites. It's a boy's name, but I read that it can be a girl's name, too. I think if I were naming a girl that, I'd spell it differently: Cade.

Anyway, it apparently has many meanings. When I found it and loved it a couple of years ago, I thought it meant "strong". When I googled it just now, I got a bunch of meanings including stout, sturdy, from the wetlands, and barrel. LOL! I like "strong" the best. Doesn't Kade sound like it means "strong"? *shrug* I'm name fanatic, so I'm probably more into this than any of y'all are ;) Oh well. That's the name of the week: KADE! :D
Not much that's very exciting happened today. My mom gave a party for her class of eighth graders (Challenge B-ers), and my ninth grade (Challenge I) friends were invited, too. Some of them came, so that was pretty fun, although I will say I was underwhelmed at the manners and lack of common courtesy displayed by a few individuals.

Tonight, a couple is coming over for pre-marriage counsiling, so we're waiting dinner for them. They're supposed to be here at seven. *moan* I'll staaaaaarve! :) Just kidding. I'm definitely getting hungry though...

Tomorrow is my friend (Ellie B)'s play. I'm hopefully going to it. On Saturday I have an extra practice session for my dance class. We're going to rehearse the finale dance we've recently learned.

I told you I went to the bookstore Tuesday, right? Well, I did, and I got five books! :D :D Yay!! I've already finished one, and I'm halfway through another. I just love books. I know this sounds really cliche, but they can take you to different worlds and cultures on amazing adventures without your ever leaving your house! How awesome is that?

In my opinion, words are the closest thing we have to magic.

Maybe that's why I want to be a writer so badly...

Carpe aestas!

Cade. *thinks of Outsiders* I had a character that had a name sort-of close to that. Caiden. (okay... Not close.)

What books did you get Tuesday?

Kendra Logan said...

Ohh, yeah, lol! I didn't think about the fact that that's Johnny's last name! I like the name Caiden. I see what you mean about it being kind of like Kade.

Welllll :) I got "City of Bones", "A Great and Terrible Beauty", "Farsala Trilogy Book Two: Rise of a Hero", "Pendragon: Merchant of Death", and "Ranger's Apprentice: Ice Bound Land". Lol, the Ranger's Apprentice book is really meant for a younger audience, but I started the series a while back so now I'm determined to finish it ;)

My friend used to blog under the name "Caden". Kade is a nice name though, I rather like it.

As for the bookstore thing, I can spend HOURS in a bookstore. I love bookstores and librarys. Which reminds me, I have to finish reading the books I books I borrowed from my friend!

Krevan: Ugh, I know what you mean about not much free time during school. I don't read many new books during the school year because I have to read a bunch of stuff for school anyway.

Blogger Girl: That's so funny that you know someone named that! Lol, you should walk up and say in a creepy voice, "I know what you name means." Haha, just kidding. ;P Thanks!

Katrien: Same here about the bookstore thing. That has to be one of my favorite places. Hundreds of new stories all within reach! Lol! Which books are you reading/going to read right now?
