New Old Books

8:01 PM

This is where I list the books I got from my favorite used-books store. Now that I think about it, I usually do this after I've read all of them, but I got six this time and with the stuff I have to do for school and the R.E.A.D.S. that I have to read before a certain time they are not top priorities. 


I just got two college applications turned in. By the way, if you're applying to many colleges (in the United States) you should definitely use the Common Application if those schools use it because it is so much simpler. You don't have to request transcripts and standard test scores every time you apply which takes so much stress off of the whole process. You don't have to wonder whether or not the transcripts and test scores will get to the colleges by their deadlines. 

I aim to do a lot more educational extra stuff tonight and maybe a little tomorrow (but there's a big family Thanksgiving, so...much less probability of happening). 

I know, I know. When am I going to get to the good stuff right?? Well, now is the time. BEHOLD>>>


Snowfire by Terri Farley

I've actually read this before and it's the ninth book of the Wild Horse Island series (which you can probably see *slaps forehead*). I read these books when I was, like, eleven or twelve. So they're definitely very far from young adult. I used to think they were the greatest things, but the plots are quite simple and the writing could be better. That said, as it was a favorite back in the olden days (and the covers are delicious), I'm still trying to collect the whole series. I think I have about two or three left. 

I wish there were more young adult fiction based on horses. I love horses. They're so beautiful! But I'm also a little scared of them (shhhhhh). Don't tell. 


Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

When I saw this cover, I mind-gasped (meaning the little voice in my head gasped). The cover is so amazing!  As I flipped the book over to check the blurb and then flip through a little bit, I was thinking "Please be good, please be good, please be good. Live up to your cover." From what I've glimpsed so far, I think it's going to be a solid and if not pretty darn good novel. It's built on the concept of Beauty and the Beast, along with Indian (the country, not the people. well. you know what I mean) curses and legends. 

The girl main character is American and the guys are Indian (from India. if I didn't make that clear enough before). And I really love trans-cultural stories. I don't care if that's not a word. 


Beware, Princess Elizabeth by Carolyn Meyer

Carolyn Meyer writes a lot of historical fiction, especially for English royals and stuff. I've read her books before (liked the one on Princess Mary. Anne Boleyn one? Not so much) and thought this might be interesting. 


Captivate by Carrie Jones

Now this one sounded really interesting. It is fantasy. Apparently there's this war that has been going on for ages between the pixies (I'm assuming they aren't tinker bell types) and the humans that has been recently stopped. But current king's lessening control over his people (the pixies) draws a new king to town. And he says it's destiny that the girl main character Zara be his queen. Or something to that effect. 

At first I wasn't sure I wanted it, but then I read a scene where *SPOILER* two girls (Zara and someone) are talking together while the new king is tied up in the backseat of the car with wire. Supposedly bouncing around uncomfortably. Yes, that is what convinced me to buy the book. What?? He makes some very sarcastic comments while being totally unable to get himself out of the mess. It's so amusing.


Deep Green by Melody Carlson

This is part of the True Colors series. Each book in this series features a... what you might call a "vice." Deep Green's vice is jealousy. And even though this series is Christian the author doesn't come across as preachy at all. There is no action, no significant plot twists, but the books really emphasize the worth of each individual person and how they belong on the earth for a reason. 


Heir Apparent by Vivian Vande Velde

The first time I read this book, it dazzled me. I had never read a book like it before with its virtual role playing games and extreme artificial intelligence. Also the name of the game company--Rasmussem Enterprises-- is extremely weird and beckoning. In other words, awesome. 

Even after I've read so many sci-fi and dystopian novels, I still think that Velde has her own unique genre in the world of fiction that is not occupied by many other authors. 

Word of caution. It might be too awesome for you to handle ;)

My sister already has a copy, but I wanted my own because 1) it's really good and 2) sadly, I might be moving away to college next year and I want to take it with me.

Oh, and here's a picture of my new necklace. I love it! It's so intricate and delicate. 


Yes, it's a golden leaf. It looks like the leaves that have lost all their color and only have the lacy skeleton left. And if you're curious, the shirt says "Hibernate with me." It's perfect too. I love sleeping. 

                                                                          Peace out,

Shoving, Used Books, and Long Excuses

9:11 PM

Please tell me I'm not the only one who hates pushing and shoving through crowds in order to buy clothes that are fifty percent off. Black Friday. Yep, unfortunately, I had to go through some of that torture today (and went to Wal-Mart with my mom yesterday which was a nightmare). I do like the fact that I got a few cute tops and a gorgeous necklace though...

I also went to my favorite book store and got a pile of books-- six for about thirteen dollars. Which I will debrief you on tomorrow hopefully and maybe use one of them in a book review.

Actually, now that I think about it, that might be a little repetitive so I'll probably review some R.E.A.D.S. that I've read (I've borrowed loads more since last time). It's so nice scrolling down my kindle app and seeing their pretty little covers (that's literal. the covers are very little).

I'm also going to be watching movies with family this weekend. I am beyond thankful that I got this week off in college class. Anywho, this is just a quick update before some bigger future posts.

P.S. I should probably also let you know that I have accomplished more on the "relaxing, doing-nothing-at-all-for-long-periods-of-time" side of vacation then the "studious, educational" side. I blame the weather. It's too cold to concentrate.

                                                         Chillin' cause we're cool,

Blog Button + iWOMAN2

9:14 PM

I am so excited about this! Can you tell? I figured out how to make a blog button for my blog via a very helpful article on WikiHow, which I will link here. The html thingamajigger is under it, and I'll keep it there until I figure out how to put it on the sidebar or something similar. I just wanted to put this on here, before continuing the iWOMAN post like I said I would. Ha! In your face.




Life of a Random



Sorry. I get excited when I prove people wrong. 

Today's iWOMAN post will be on novels with strong heroines. I'm going to try to pick less well-known books (and not necessarily all in Young Adult fiction) because that way you all can hopefully find some books that you haven't read before that catch your interest and add them to your "to-read" list on Goodreads or...you know, your favorite notebook (but we both know you have a Goodreads account. if you dont...I can't say anything because I just got mine a few months ago). So I won't be putting books like The Hunger Games, Divergent, or City of Bones on this post because I feel like they are pretty much nationally if not universally known about, talked about, and read. Sorry to disappoint. If you don't know about these books, I recommend you go read them immediately. I'll put them in a list down below for you. 

 The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (part of a trilogy. the other two books 
                                          are #2 Catching Fire and #3 Mockingjay)

 Divergent by Veronica Roth (also part of a trilogy. the other two books are #2 
                                          Insurgent and #3 Allegiant)

 City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (nope, not  trilogy this time :) It's actually
                                          book one in a series of six books)

Onward! 



Book of a Thousand Days by Shanon Hale (who is also the author of Princess Academy) 

BLURB
When Dashti, a maid, and Lady Saren, her mistress, are shut in a tower for seven years for Saren’s refusal to marry a man she despises, the two prepare for a very long and dark imprisonment.
As food runs low and the days go from broiling hot to freezing cold, it is all Dashti can do to keep them fed and comfortable. But the arrival outside the tower of Saren’s two suitors—one welcome, and the other decidedly less so—brings both hope and great danger, and Dashti must make the desperate choices of a girl whose life is worth more than she knows.
With Shannon Hale’s lyrical language, this forgotten but classic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm is reimagined and reset on the central Asian steppes; it is a completely unique retelling filled with adventure and romance, drama and disguise.



Lady Saren is spoiled. But not the kind of spoiled that you hate, just the kind that you wrinkle your nose at and feel slightly sorry for. Dashti was a saint for putting up with her and taking care of her, for making sure that they survived when Lady Saren lost her will to. Dashti has a scar on her face and hand (maybe just her hand) if I remember right, and 1) She pretends to be Lady Saren to Lady Saren's fiance and 2) she puts herself in severe danger to save the surrounding countries even when she herself is on the brink of being proclaimed a fraud and thrown out. I'm trying to explain this without giving spoilers *sigh* it is so hard. 

I really loved this book and I think it's partly (or mostly) because of Vashti, the strong, hard-working, un-assuming heroine. 



The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare 

BLURB
Orphaned Kit Tyler knows, as she gazes for the first time at the cold, bleak shores of Connecticut Colony, that her new home will never be like the shimmering Caribbean island she left behind. In her relatives' stern Puritan community, she feels like a tropical bird that has flown to the wrong part of the world, a bird that is now caged and lonely. The only place where Kit feels completely free is in the meadows, where she enjoys the company of the old Quaker woman known as the Witch of Blackbird Pond, and on occasion, her young sailor friend Nat. But when Kit's friendship with the "witch" is discovered, Kit is faced with suspicion, fear, and anger. She herself is accused of witchcraft!

From the moment that Kit Tyler steps onto the shores of the Americas, the people around her look at her differently. She is colorful and full of life. And they are Puritans. Anything she does, and they will criticize. Plainly and simply, Kit doesn't fit in. But she keeps going. She learns to cook, she dresses like the Puritans...but through it all she still keeps the spirit that she had when she first arrived. Even though she has to hide it very deep, it's still there. And that takes strength. How many of us would still be functioning, normal people if people criticized and disapproved everything we were and everything we did? If we knew that they viewed us as a lesser person because we were different. I know I wouldn't be too strong in that situation....



Cinder by Marissa Meyer

BLURB
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. 

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

First of all, I need to say how much I love the setting for the book. It has cyborgs, robots, and lunars!! What could be better? (besides the lunars) Cinder is strong. She puts up with her mother-in-law and one step-sister (she and the second one are close though, which I thought was a nice switch from the cliche). She's the most experienced and talented mechanic in the city. And that satisfies us girls who have always wanted to do a "guy thing" with extreme talent and say "Ha! In your face" (just like I did in the beginning of this post *le smirk*). Cinder is also a cyborg. Cyborgs aren't considered human in this future Earth. Which is complete bull if you ask me. Why should anyone be less human, even if they have metal parts in them? Cinder makes her own way. And that is something anyone would be proud of doing. She is also a strong woman. 

Oh and yeah. There's a prince. Funny how some things in fairy tales never change, huh. I also think it's important to note that he goes to her to fix his broken robot. A complete reversal of roles. I LOVE it. 



Girl in Blue by Ann Rinaldi (I would like to note that Rinaldi writes extremely good historical fiction, but very sad as well)

BLURB
The year is 1861. When spirited teenager Sarah Louisa learns that she is to be married off to her despicable neighbor, she runs away from home. Disguising herself as a boy, Sarah boldly joins the army--and before long is a soldier in the Civil War. Sarah navigates the joys and hardships of army life, all the while struggling to keep her true identity a secret. But Sarah's real adventure is only just beginning. A chance encounter with a detective soon draws her into a web of mystery, intrigue, and romance--and Sarah's courage will be put to the test as never before.

Sarah disguises herself as a boy and joins an army. You may be shaking your head and saying "Psh that isn't realistic." But loads of women disguised themselves as men and joined either the Confederate or Union armies in the Civil War. Some wanted to serve their country, others wanted to stay with their husbands. Ann Rinaldi gives a personal view of what it would be like to do such an outrageous thing (for that time). 

Sarah serves as a man, until she is found out by another woman. She takes the full brunt of training just like everybody else. And excels. She's a girl who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to work hard to get it. Another thing I like about this book is that Sarah doesn't go back to the average female civilian life after she gets kicked out of the army. Nope. Instead, she joins Allan Pinkerton and his spies at the Pinkerton National Detective Agency. Which is totally awesome. 

And that, my lovelies, is the list of books I've come up with that have strong heroines. Whatever their circumstances, they remained true to themselves and pushed through. In the end, their hearts made them strong, not their bodies. 

                                    Hugs & Fist Pumps (separately of course),

iWOMAN

7:48 PM

When I first started this post, I was getting ready to smash the "sexy" heroine to bits. Because let's face it, while some girls like that style, most of us want to read about girls who stand out because they're smart, or strong, or talented with the bow and arrow. Not because they're pretty or skinny. My post was going to be somewhat of a rant (shhh don't tell anyone) which would be followed by lists of movies, books, photos, and characteristics of the "strong woman" aka the right kind of heroine. Because it really does bother me a lot when, especially in movies, girls flutter their eyelashes and walaa their male counterpart is overcome and helpless. Uhhh, we have brains (and fists), thank you very much. And there I go again (I warned you about the ranting). This is what it comes down too: I read an amazing post called "On Media Hype, And If It's Even the Problem" by Mime at the Notebook Sisters blog. In this post, which you should go and read immediately, Mime talks about how there are "strong women" stereotypes as well.

Right across from the Jennifer Lopezes (I can't think of a specific example right now) are the Katniss Everdeens. Basically, Mime points out that there are rarely any in-betweens for heroines-- there are either sexy godesses or kick-butt godesses. And once again, heroines are being forced into two constricting groups. We all want to be like Katniss, but we're actually not. I'm not in shape (let's be serious. I hate exercising), even though I want to be, but would being in shape make me a better person? Would it make me stronger? Really? Nah, I don't think so. Even though I wasn't gonna do this post specifically for athletic heroines anyway, I think I'm going to try to add more variety than the "physically strong" and "mentally strong" that I was going to write about originally. But I would like to add that it is so frustrating to see the tiny amount of respect that women/girls get. They are still not taken seriously as fighters or protectors. And this, I think, is partly the reason that the "Katniss-type" has shown up more and more in different YA fiction. We girls (and think about it, this happens very much in books by female writers) are still fighting the old, strong idea that we can't do as much as guys. We're not as physically strong, so we can't defend ourselves. It's just the good ol' feminism kicking in gear and flowing through our veins ;)

Don't stop it.

Er, anyways, let us begin the discovery of all sides of strong women.

Movies

 

Before I start on Mako Mori, I just need to say something. Pacific Rim was the best!! It had a totally fresh idea, which the plot built on. First of all, it's already pretty cool that two-person teams have to link their minds and memories in order to control enormous robots called Jaegers. What's even cooler is that they categorize the Kaiju (sea monsters) like hurricanes. They have category 1, 2, 3, 4, and finally 5 Kaiju. Which are horrifying creatures (also gigantic) that occasionally spew neon blue acid. It's intense, man.

What I liked about Mako Mori was that she didn't let her real-time inexperience or bad memories stop her from being a Jaeger pilot. There was one bad incident in the prep room (which I am not going to tell you about because SPOILER), but after that Mako pulled herself together and performed very well under stressful circumstances (translation: I was clutching a pillow and had my jaw dropped the whole entire movie. almost). She kicked some Kaiju butt, and you have to admit that the Jaeger fist-to-palm salute is pretty freaking awesome and intimidating. And she has a streak of blue hair.


     


Marie Kreutz. The woman who helps Jason Bourne escape from authorities. Well, actually, she did it for the stack of cash Bourne offered her. But, you know. For those of you who haven't watched these movies, Marie and Bourne end up together. The reason I picked her as a strong woman, though, is because through all the drama and running-for-her-life and finding out that Bourne is some kind of super-human, she stays relatively calm. Marie helps Bourne when he's sick. She even helps him get information (referring to hotel scene). Annnnd she only freaks out once. That woman has steel nerves I'm telling you. She's not athletic or gorgeous or a hacker but she's still strong. Oh, and another thing-- watch the movie.

You'll thank me.





Minority Report is about the Chief of the Precrime Unit, John Anderton, is accused of murder by his own system which uses technology to identify killers before they commit their crimes. Agatha, the girl in the above photo with tubes coming out of her head, is a Precog. There a three Precogs. They are the basis of the whole Precrime Unit. These Precogs were born from mothers who were taking drugs, which gave these children these gifts. There are three Precogs, but Agatha, the girl, is the most gifted. The Precogs predict the crimes.

But Agatha, even though she's almost completely under the Unit's control, suspended helplessly in a nurturing liquid, finds a way to hide some crimes from it. She breaks through and contacts Anderton. I feel like Agatha is the strongest of all the girls I've shown you so far. She makes the impossible possible through sheer will.

I know I said I would put books and pictures on here too, but I want to get this post out today so... SORRY!! I know I'm not that good with series posts but I promise I will finish this one :)

                        Be strong! (or you can just read books and eat chocolate like me)

Vacation of a Homeschooler

10:58 AM

I'm going to have a vacaaaation this week. Three days off for Thanksgiving! And since my college class falls right on Thanksgiving day, I won't have to go in (mwahahahaha). Technically, I have plans to do some constructive things. In actuality, I probably won't get much done. BUT I'm trying to put together a list that goes halfway in between those two extremes. Like catching up on school and reading a book on future physics, and writing for my blog, my WIP (work in progress), and just lying around in general. We'll see how that works out.

Books I'll be reading (hopefully):

The following books are R.E.A.D.S. since I haven't had time to go to the library (and it's freezing cold here, we don't need no Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer cause that's me every time I go outside). R.E.A.D.S. stands for Regional eBook & Audiobook Download System. In the words of Agent Ward from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. someone really wanted the initials to spell "reads."





I just discovered the top book while researching for an ethical paper (you probably don't want to hear about school though). I have been wanting to read Short-Straw Bride for eons. So I'm really excited about being able to read it, even though I like reading actual, physical books better than Kindle books. Psh no I don't have a Kindle. I have the Kindle app for PC. I'm posh like that ;)

I will be posting more often (hopefully). At least, until my next dual-enrollment class. Ok, back to Short-Straw Bride. Does anyone else find the idea of a whole band of brothers pulling straws for a bride totally intriguing/fascinating??

More things will be coming this week like: book reviews, days in the life, umm...oh, and maybe a guest post by Tansie Gray (you can visit her blog here).

Do you have any suggestions for what I should write about? If you do, please comment and tell me. I will beg on my knees if you continue to resist. And then there are the minions. I'm still recovering from their latest attack.

                                                                   Hugs,

Cress + Viking Brats

5:54 PM

It took an ungodly amount of time to re-design the background of my blog. Do you know why? 'Cause the backgrounds provided by blogger sorta (totally) stink. Anyways, that is not the point of this post. 


The point of this post is that the cover for Cress by Marissa Meyer was finally released...and it is ASDGJHDFKGLJ. 

Refer to the picture below. 


I know right.

It is a thing of beauty.

Don't lie to me. You totally let out a string of garbled words that sounded something like ASFJGHDSLKFJ. I am a reader of minds. 

You can already tell it's going to be based on Rapunzel! And URGH I can't wait to read it! But, alas, it doesn't come out until February 4, 2014. 2014. I just rolled my eyes when I typed that. Sane, responsible publishers do not release a cover for a ridiculously good and looked-forward-to book almost two and a half months before hand. 

I'll just put the blurb thingy right here. You're welcome. 

Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard. 

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army. 

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker—unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice. 

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.


Is that not the best opening ever?? A satellite equals tower from fairytales? Marissa Meyer does a wicked job of finding dystopian aka "robo-world" alternatives. And I love fairytale re-makes. Have I mentioned how much I love what this book is going to be? 

Also, since Cress isn't actually out yet, and I haven't actually read it yet, I'm going to do an extra book review. Woop woop! 

NOTE: I haven't read a book in a gazillion years (meaning, a few weeks) because of school *sigh*.

Once upon a time (it was ages ago, probably a few years...I'm not even kidding), I bought the first book of the Viking Quest Series from Amazon. As all of you readers know, buying brand new books is not cheap, so I didn't buy the rest even though I really liked the first book. 

Someone else's very nice photo

Sooo, just a few months ago I was in my "Favorite Second-Hand Store in the State". Sorry, I forgot my original name for it. I am now doomed to be attacked by my own minions. *whispers* They show no mercy. Anyways, there they were (not the minions. the books series). Just like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Except they were in a dull section of brown bookcase. And they aren't gold. There were books 2-5 for only $1.50 each. I was seriously psyched. I could finally collect a complete series, and believe me, I have been "collecting" several series for a long time. 

The main characters are Brianna (Bree), Devin (her brother), and Mikkel (a stupid, spoiled Viking brat). Bree and Devin live in Ireland at a time when Vikings are a real danger. Many people have been kidnapped and stolen away in big Viking ships. This time, Devin and Bree get stolen away. By Mikkel. He's fourteen and basically thinks that everything he gets, he deserves. He's a pain in the butt, in the head, in the everywhere (until book 5...it took a while). Bree and Devin are Christians and their faith, especially Bree's, throughout all their time in slavery is amazing. How could they remain close to God through that? It just blows my mind. 

Eventually, everything works out and Bree, Devin, and Mikkel are happy in their faith. I'm afraid if I try to explain more I might just blurt out the whole plot. The reading level is not high at all. It seems like Middle School and lower, but it's still a good light read. 

Go read some books for me! While I sit here and moan about school...

                                                     Peace out, 
                                                                  X

Introducing an Anonymous, Un-named Character

5:12 PM

I have a confession to make. I am a blog stalker. Sometimes when my favorite blogs don't have any new posts, I'll go to a blog that has a lot of followers and click on random followers (on the Google Friend Connect thing) to see if they have any blogs I might be interested in or if they follow any blogs I might be interested in. Is that creepy? Hmm. Meh, I don't think so :)

So as I was blalking (Blog+stalking. I'm a genius. I know you don't have to tell me), I discovered this blog called Creaology (you can check it out here ) which has a page totally devoted to questions to ask your character. HOW COOL, right? I decided right away that I would save it to do for you all on my blog. I'm not sure that I'll be able to answer them that well though, as I don't even have a name for the character I'm gonna be doing yet *rolls eyes at self*. But hey, you guys can help me come up with a name!



This is the character:
more or less what she looks like



Preferences:
1. Chocolate, vanilla, or...
I've never had either. Are they foods? (Me: Well, hm, yeah one of them definitely is *grins*)
2. What is/was your favorite school subject?
Cartography. (Me: Why?) *jaw clenches* My da restored old maps. I was enchanted.
3. What is your dream job?
I don't have one.
4. Follow or lead?
Lead. Can't trust anyone else to lead.
5. Spend time with a) large crowds, b) a select group of individuals, or c) no one, but instead a book, computer, animal, etc.?
You've given me quite a selection. (Me: *narrows eyes* are you being sarcastic?) *smirks* Me? *face turns serious again* I'd say a book, but Kaity as well.
6. Favorite hobbies/sports?
*snorts* I don't do hobbies. I have to survive. (Me: OKAY. Geeze.)
7. Follow rules or make your own?
The existing rules suck. I make my own.
8. Change or routine?
It's easier to make decisions with routine.

Morals:
1. Justice or mercy?
Justice.
2. Honesty or kindness?
Honesty.
3. Is gossip acceptable?
To hear? Yes.
4. Is violence acceptable?
I would say that it isn't needed. The people who need to use violence are stupid and lack the respect of others.
5. Is killing acceptable?
In some cases.
6. What does it take for you to compromise?
Nothing. Well...almost nothing.

Physical Aspects:
1. Hair color?
Black.
2. Eye color?
Brown. (Me: Actually they're a sort of hazel. Sometimes they look golden and somet--) *rolls her eyes*
3. Height?
Average I'd say. Maybe short on some standards.
4. Weight?
*Gives me a strange look* I don't know.
5. What do you like most about your physical appearance?
I don't think about that stuff. (Me: Ever?) *ignores me*
6. If you could change one thing about your appearance, what would it be?
You're so hung up on looks. (Me: *outraged gasp* AM NOT) Fine. My freckles. (Me: But there so--) *shoots me a warning look* (Me: Never mind.)
7. Athletic?
Yes. Running from patrols gives a person muscles.

Psychology:
