Holy Week

Hi guys, sorry it's been so long since I've posted but I had writers block. Anyway, because Easter is coming up, I'll be spending a lot of time at church this week getting things ready for the usual celebrations. We have a potluck Last Supper and a foot washing on Holy Thursday. On Good Friday our youth group puts on a living Stations of the Cross Service at church and the local American House in the afternoon, and in the evening there's a Tenebrae Service at church. Holy Saturday is Easter Vigil where the adults at our church who want to receive Baptism/First Communion/Confirmation will be able to receive these sacraments. And of course Easter morning with two different masses at which children and babies can be Baptized (children at 9:00am and babies at 11:00am). So it looks like I'll be at church 25 + hours this week (including Palm Sunday and the Saturday before), that's ok though because this is a fun week (especially if you're an alter server). My favorite day/mass for Holy Week would have to be tonight's potluck dinner. I would like to wish all of you a Happy Easter, incase I don't post again before then.
P.S.  Also please pray for my sister's guinea pig who has inflamed tissue around her spine so her back legs aren't working (the vet gave us anti-inflammatory medicine and told us to come back in two weeks, fingers crossed).

Nintendo 3DS review

So yesterday I went over to my local Best Buy to try Nintendo's new 3DS, because my blog is not big enough (yet) to be sent one to review. Anyway, I went to try it out today and here's what I think of it: 
     The new 3D feature ~ The 3D is amazing you really feel like you could literally jump into the game. 
     The touch screen ~ The touch screen is pretty much the same as previous DS systems. 
     The stylus ~ I like how it's telescoping and easy is to extend.
     The games ~ I only got to play Pilotwings Resort but it was awesome just the same.
     The colors ~ I wish it came in purple, I know a lot of you do as well, but the aqua blue is a really cool color.
     My overall thoughts ~ It is the best DS yet, the price is a bit steep, but for a system this great I think it is almost worth it (maybe $200-$225 would be better). Would I buy it? Yes! Would I recommend it to my friends? I would and I am. :)

My first post :)

Hey everybody, Sydney here. I decided to start a blog so I could share my opinions with the world. I believe that everyone has an opinion and I'm here to share mine. I'll share my thoughts about almost anything, from reviews (books, games, movies) to worldly matters, I might even throw some tutorials and interviews into the mix. So if you like to hear other people's thoughts, or like to share your own comments, I invite you to follow my blog, as we share our opinions with the world.
