Oh, right now I have as little holidays as you have (provided you're back in the US again, if so .. where in the US are you? Just curious how near or far away you are, that's all ;P ). I really wished they'd have more holidays here - the only "bigger" holidays we have is Thanksgiving - and that's not even a week! And I can't just ditch school and travel around, my teachers would complain really bad ^^; Artemis Fowl? I've never heard of that, I mostly know German books - Franz Kafka, but also Goethe, that's more or less what we usually read (and enjoy reading those too ^-^ ). Apart from that, fairy tales or stories from loong long ago float my boat too, I've read Jurassic Park and the Neverending Story when I was little, together with heaps of stories from Grimm and was fascinated by them. ^-^

Yeah, same here, but I don't worry too much about it - if I notice at the beginning already that I start spending a lot of time on it and that it's not turning out just right, I merely start over and try again ;3 Hehe, I don't even think I have a ruler anywhere near - just a wooden one that's awkward to draw with ^^ Usually when I try to get straight lines, I just .. dunno, scribble and hope they turn out roughly straight ;P

Weeeell, at least as a hermit, you'd get to live in a new house every now and then, and each new house gets bigger than your last one ^-^ Plus you get to enjoy the colourful ocean - just be careful not to be eaten ^^; Oh, and I have twelve years of school too - we just number them differently, after we arrive at four, we start with one again the next year ;P No idea why, though - probably because the first four years are still elementary school ^-^
If you're in your third year, I think you're a junior? Not sure though, I'm not that good with the names either ^^;

Eeeh, I dooon't know whether the goat would enjoy you suddenly rushing to it from out of the blue and hug it .. you might scare it, and then it might give you a free flight down the mountain! X.x But you can feed them with grass and all that in summer, they really like that, and are all calm too, hehe ^-^ Aaaand you must be extra-lucky to see a snow rabbit, I don't think I have ever seen one before, just the tracks, that's all ;_; I'd snap a picture for sure - if I didn't forget the photo-camera again ;P No matter where I go, whenever I think "whoa, that'd make a good picture", I don't have a camera with me ^^;

Voting Day and Veteran's Day? No school? Yay! Hopefully they have it here too *-*

Viva le vacanze! ^-^

Right now, in the US, I'm near New York and stuff, so yep, I've got the same holdiays. And Thanksgiving is tomorrow, so I'm really spazzed. I mean, I just love the food. And don't worry, there are more holiday's in America, like Christmas/Hannukah, and New Years, and Valentines, and Fourth of July, so it's not really that bad. It's just that Thanksgiving is the next holiday, that's all. Oh yes, ditching school is bad enough. ;P

Yes, Artemis Fowl, I think you can find some on the library in the US. Heheh, I've never heard of those books, but maybe I'll learn German and read them...someday. XD But Jurrasic Park rocks, and it's sequel, the Lost World, and Grimm is almost the basis of all fairy tales, though the originals are a bit violent for little kids. ;O

Yes, yes, it's just short lines I can do straight, but longer, it just doesn't go. D; But with my trusty rusty ruler by my side, I can do anything. <3

Yay! Hermitness. And maybe as a hermit there could be some woods and some animal communication. Happy for nature, ya know? ;3 Aha, I would be happy with just eight years of education, but still, it's counted differently in every country, no? Like in Poland, elementary school is counted up to sixth grade. ^-^

Free flight. Wheeeee, that would be fun, ecspecially with a trampoline. Hug, fly, bounce up, hug, fly, bounce up, and you get the deal. XD Oh, it'd be just like in a petting zoo, too. Snow bunneh. But if you ever get a picture of one, can you post it up? I've never seen one. ;D But yes, I know what you mean, ecspecially when there's some moving thing that I might not be able to see again. D;

Hehe, yush, you're right, but still, there seems to be sooo much school between the holidays - even Thanksgiving is just a mere four days ;_; Anyhow, I'm in Seattle now - at least for the Thanksgiving holidays. My friends said it's all rainy there, and the city seems to want to prove them right - from when I come to today it was been raining slightly all the time - just now it stopped (probably the clouds need to take a break too X3 ). I might be wrong, but I remember Austria having a few more holidays every now and then, but then again, it could be my imagination and my impatience too, since I want to get around in the US a little ^^;

Ooh, I see ^-^ Yush yush, I know, I read the book of Jurrasic Park too, and found it really nice ^-^ Hehe, I fell in love with certain kinds of dinosaurs there, even though I think they ate a visitor or two ^^; Kind of ironic that Grimm is a bit violent for little kids - especially considering it's about fairy tales, and what kids are exposed to anyhow ;P But yeah, just think of it - the old witch in Hänsel and Gretel gets pushed into the oven where she burns - I mean .. that is kind of violent, come to think of it, no? X3

Same here ^^ I usually start to get all scribbly when I do longer lines, so it looks kind of .. like I didn't want it straight anyway X3 Straight things are something pretty unnatural anyhow - trees, muzzles, even hands - nothing's really perfectly straight unless it's human made (such as buildings or desks) ^^

Oh, it is a total of twelve years of education in Austria, we just start counting from zero .. err .. one again after four years ^-^

That'd be weird ;P Very weird, actually. And the gooses would find this very very weird as well ;3 If I ever get a picture of one though, yush, I'll show you. But don't count on it - usually I don't see snow bunnies, and when I do, my camera's usually faaaar away from me ^^; You got to come to Austria, climb the mountains and spot them for yourself, mwahaha ^-^
