With MY NAME replacing the sertain words:
"It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the Sonja." (So true)
"I was looking for a Sonja, and then I found a Sonja and heaven knows I'm miserable now." (Again, so true)
"Today is gonna be the day that they're gonna throw Sonja back to you."
"Yesterday, all my Sonja seemed so far away."
"And the whole world has to answer right now just to tell you once again who's Sonja."
"I'm picking up good vibrations, she's giving me Sonja."
"Oh, I heard it through the Sonja."
"I kissed a Sonja and I liked it." (lol - not. EWWWWWWWWWNODAMNWAY. Yes I know I'm childish. Get used to it)
"I can call you when I need you, my Sonja's on fire." (LOL!)
"If you wanna be my lover, you gota get with my Sonja." (NO)
"Here in my Sonja, I feel safest of all." (I highly doubt that ... )
"All you need is Sonja Sonja, Sonja is all you need." (koff koff)
"My Sonja brings all the boys to the yard and they're like it's better than yours."
"I see friends shaking Sonja saying how do you do, they're really saying I love you." (Ummmm, THAT DOESN'T MAKE UP FOR SHAKING ME!)
And last, but not least, and definitely saddest:
"Who needs a Sonja when a Sonja can be broken?"
WOW this is MAD FUN!
"And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large quack." (OMIGOSH I cannot stop rofling at this one! Teach me not to be so obsessed with the word 'quack'!)
Awwwww no more time! Damn. Oh well *major grumbling*
See yas all next year!

Oh my gosh, I was so totally spacing when I went out with Dad to do the grocery shopping today. I went straight past Mit without even seeing him. I walked into a couple of stalls. Etc. I really gotta learn to keep my awareness levels in good shape for when I'm out in public. Lol.
But damn, is it annoying.
I'm pretty mad at the moment cos of what happened when Katie called Dylan, and she could hear Dylan's father ... Seriously, he's not helping things. And things are bad enough at the moment, even though some things are healing up.
I'm really stressing about classes for next year at the moment. Mrs G, one of our year advisors, was totally adamant in not letting us know what classes we're in, and she wouldn't let our other year advisor either.. She totally frustrates me. Like she said some total lies about me to my parents, she can be vicious sometimes, and she lost my USB stick when I desperately needed it ... but she's a good teacher and at least appears to be a nice person at most times. WTH??!! I hate that type of person! Cos you totally can't understand them! And you don't know what opinion to have of them - the good or the bad - cos they totally contradict themselves!
Gosh I am REALLY stressing about classes ...
Anyway, I started reading an ok book earlier. And I've taken some photos with my camera. Yeah it hurt my hand. But it was worth it. And I managed to take most with just my left hand anyway.
I'll put some photos I've taken on here later. Don't have the patience atm.
Going now. Bye.

I just spent the past half hour watching Spiderbait video clips :) The one for Outta My Head was pretty cool, as was the one for Monty.
NO. Outta My Head is NOT like the Ashlee Simpson one. Spiderbait is way to awesome for that.
And now I am determined to find Happyland's version of Tintarella Di Luna, cos that song is funny and the Happyland version is best.
Hmmmmmm ... I'm still not convinced tomorrow is Christmas Day. But I guess it is. With all the carparks by shops full, I guess it is. With everyone singing Christmas carols I guess it is. With everyone asking me whether I'm looking forward to tomorrow, and as there's nothing else I can think of they may be mentioning, I guess it is. With Mum and Dad going on about my presents, I guess it is.
Still, it doesn't feel like Christmas. And I can't think of why.
Christmas started off as a pagan festival, apparently. Then when people started celebrating Christ's birth they decided to celebrate it at the same time as the festival. So I betcha that screwed things up for both sides.
And these days, what is Christmas? An opportunity. To make money. And lose money. An excuse to go wild. And so on.
There's nothing sacred about Christmas nowadays, is there? Unlike the days of the pagan festival. And later, the celebration of Christ's birth. Cos both of those would have been VERY MUCH sacred.
Yet these days ...
Don't worry about me spouting stuff. It's the middle of the night. What would you expect?
ARGH. I'm annoyed. Earlier in the year, just after Annie's dad and brother came down for a bit, Dad said I may be able to go up to Brisbane. But now ... cos Mum's objecting ...
Geez, she's so overprotective.
First of all there was all that fighting etc. Not just at school - I got really annoyed at some people from my youth group. Then last night, we had a youth group activity by the beach. And at the end of it, it was dusk - you know, dark and getting into night, but there was still some light. The guys were, as guys do, wrestling each other and showing off. The girls were all around talking and laughing at the guys' antics. And the music in the background was that stupid Jason Mraz (or whoever he is) song. No fighting whatsoever ...
See? Picture perfect copy of the ending of one of those stupid dramas / soap operas. So scary!
But only Mado and me seemed to think it was funny. Some people have no sense of humour.
Is it seriously Christmas Eve?
Cos it sure doesn't feel like it.
SHUT UP KAT (talking to my sister)
My sisters are very annoying.
Wow. I don't know how I'd survive without my friends. :)
They are SPARKY, and always there if help is needed.
[End sentimental babbling]
Ok I'm just droning on. So dull at the moment.

Interesting day today.
First, I manage to email someone about something I never thought I could. And then the reply was really helpful, blew my socks off with shock, and sent me practically bawling.
I found out how affected my almost always Little Miss Sunshine cousin is, cos she is starting high school next year and won't see most of her friends again.
I found out how much life really IS like a drama / soap opera. I'll tell you why when I get the time.
And then I find out some news which could be great or horrid news, depending which way I look at it.
Yes, a VERY interesting day today.
Gosh, it doesn't feel anything LIKE almost Christmas. I guess it doesn't help that Dad kept forgetting or didn't have the time to put the tree up until today, and then there's the fact I dunno if I'm looking forward to Christmas or not.
And Mum has been asking me if there was anything else I'd like for a present, cos she was thinking of adding stuff to mine. ARGH! I DON'T KNOW!
Well I do sorta. But somehow I doubt she'll put a camera in when she was looking for something SMALL.
Anyways, g2g, bai!
Monday, December 22, 2008
STILL no idea what's with my hand. Except that it keeps getting worse, and that I think it's spreading.
I'm hating holidays atm. Can't see friends anywhere near as much. Plus, I'm not sure that I'm good company for myself. I get too introspective, and that just brings me down.
Oh well. I'll deal.
LOL. I got the CDs of 07 and 08 Eurovision today, from the library. AND THEY ARE SPARKY AS!!!!
Seriously they are!
Well most of it. LOL some of them are so funny, especially "Push the Buttons", which is Israel's entry in 07.
And I absolutely LOVE "Leave Me Alone", which is Finland's entry in 07. Finland hosted 07, too.
I wanna go to Europe. Europe is sparky. I especially wanna go to Poland, Russia, Finland, The Netherlands and Germany.
I TOTALLY gotta watch Eurovision next year. I'll get Dad to let me, cos he may wanna watch too.
Ok. Byes. Getting a little late. (Even though I'm not tired one bit ... )
Saturday, December 20, 2008
So those anti-Twilighters out there, I don't care that you don't like Twilight. But if you bring religion into this ...
Is anyone watching Event Horizon? It's quite an interesting movie.
(It's on TV at the moment, Prime I think)
Playground school bell rings again
Rain clouds come to play again
Has no-one told you she's not breathing
I am your mind
Giving you someone to talk to
If I smile and don't believe
Soon I know I'll wake from this dream
Don't try to fix me
I'm not broken
I am the lie
Living for you so you can hide
Suddenly I know I'm not sleeping
I'm still here
All that's left of yesterday
Kristy, Are You Doing OK?, The Offspring
There's a moment in time
And it's stuck in my mind
Way back when we were just kids
Cos your eyes told a tale
Of an act of betrayal
I knew that somebody did
Oh wings of time seem to
Wash away the scenes of our crimes
For you this never ends
Can you stay strong?
Can you go on?
Kristy, are you doing ok?
A rose that won't bloom
Winter's kept you
Don't waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away
Though the marks on your dress
Had been neatly repressed
I knew that something was wrong
And I should've spoke out
And I'm so sorry now
I didn't know cos we were so young
Oh clouds of time seem to
Rain on innocence left behind
It never goes away
Can you stay strong?
Can you go on?
Kristy, are you doing ok?
A rose that won't bloom
Winter's kept you
Don't waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away
Cath ... , Death Cab For Cutie
She stands with a well intentioned man
But she can't relax with his hands on the small of her back
As the flashbulbs burst she holds a smile
Like someone would hold a crying child
Soon everybody will ask what became of you
Your heart was dying fast and you didn't know what to do
It seems that you live in someone else's dream
In a hand-me-down wedding dress
With the things that could have been are repressed
But you said your vows and you closed the door
On so many men who would have loved you more
Soon everybody will ask what became of you
Your heart was dying fast and you didn't know what to do
The whispers that it won't last roll up and down the pews
And if our hearts were dying that fast, they would have done the same as you
I'd have done the same as you
Just some songs that have stuck out to me in recent times.
The Offspring one is totally different to the style they used to have. They've mellowed up a bit :)
Actually there's another Offspring one that's stuck out:
(Can't Get My) Head Around You, The Offspring
Deep inside your soul there's a hole you don't wanna see
Every single day what you say makes no sense to me
Even though I try I can't get my head around you
Somewhere in the night there's a light in front of me
Heaven up above with a shove, I beg it's me
Even though I try I fall in the river of you
You've managed to bring me down too
All your faking (Get up,Get up,Get up, Get up)
Shows you're aching (Get up, Get up, Get up)
Every single day what you say makes no sense to me
Lettin' you inside isn't right, you'll mess with me
I'll never really know what's really going on inside you
I Can't get my head around you
All your feeling (Get up,Get up,Get up,Get up)
Shows you're breathing (Get up, Get up, Get up)
Deep inside your soul there's a hole you don't wanna see
Covering it up like a cut with the likes of me
You know I've really tried, I can't do any more about you
(Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah) The cut's getting deeper
(Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah) The hill's getting steeper.
I guess I'll never know what's really going on inside you
I can't get my head around you
I can't get my head around you
I can't get my head around you
I can't get my head around you
Anyways, that ends the song stuff tonight.
I'm off to watch a movie. Not tired. G'night.
And what happens if they can't find out what's wrong with my hand? I'm scared.
It's too hard to be extremely mad with Mado for long, especially now she's shut up. But she was SERIOUSLY annoying me. And to think Kayto may bring it up again tomorrow ... If she does ...
I don't like the holidays too much. The company of my mind is too much to handle after a while, without proper distraction, cos it's always busy, always thinking, always processing ...
Christmas day: wake up, open presents with immediate family, go to grandparents for lunch and afternoon with cousins and aunts and uncles as well, then have dinner at my other grandparents. TOO busy if you ask me, trust me it is. It's been like this almost every year, and oh it is a busy day. Cos I have so many relatives on my dad's side ...
My hand hurts so much after being poked, prodded, twisted around, out of the bandage for an extended period of time (it's not out for more than five minutes, except it had to be out for AGES today for Xrays) and then my youngest sister decided that repeatedly bumping it was fun.
Anyway, I'll stop writing down my gloomy thoughts, cos no-one really wants to know about them, or at least that's the messages I've been given.
Friday, December 19, 2008
I'm not even sure why I'm so angry at pretty much everyone. There's no real reason. Then again, there's no real reason for me to feel so down all the time either. Life's full of deep dark murky mysteries.
Today was the last day of school for New South Waliens who attend public schools. The end of Year 8 for me. And what a mucked up year it was. But how good it was too.
IDK. I'm just so confused right now and I don't have the ability to write my thoughts down like I usually do.
Anyway, I'm starting up another blog, where I'll put my writing and artwork on, so youse can see it and critic it if you want.
I keep forgetting it's nearly Christmas. I'll be doing the same thing I do each year, going to my grandparents' places. Thank goodness I don't live too far from them.
Thursday, December 18, 2008
I am REALLY angry at one of my best friends, and pretty angry at most of the rest. No-one knows when to shut up and stop, do they? And no-one seems to know when I'm in a bad mood. Isn't storming off explicit enough? Isn't constantly emailing "shut up" enough?
WHAT DOES IT TAKE?
Honestly, youse all may think you're smart, getting into an academically selective high school and all, but you're not if you can't understand the most obvious of things.
And to think that some of you can't tell when to stop, when you know a fair bit about what's going on and I've made my wish clear to you, it really hurts me.
Just to update people on my hand, it gets worse each day. According to the doctor it should've been fine a couple of days ago. But doctors are never right, are they?
Bye for now.

In Science today we were on computers with free time so I stuck my MP3 player in and played some songs. And no-one complained about them :) In fact they liked it. Which means I got good taste ;)
It was some Paramore, The Living End and Evanescence.
Oh oh oh oh today I found out I got a distinction in the University of NSW Maths test. TOTALLY did not expect that. So I'm happy. Except for the fact that my other friends didn't do so well, that I know of, and some of them have high-pressure parents :( Plus I consider them to be better than me in Maths.
Tomorrow we have the formal assembly. Yuk. Two whole periods of UTTER torture just watching people get presented with "prestigious" awards. Yuk.
I don't like awards systems anyway. I just don't agree with how these ones are set out. In my first primary school, a few people in each class were chosen for awards, if they did something "special" that week. That's the best award system I've ever seen. And even then it sucked.
I seriously need something to do, instead of just sitting around thinking. It's never done me any good in the end, doing that. But there's nothing else I really can do, except read, listen to muusic or beg Dad to let me out for a walk when he gets home, cos of my hand getting in the way of some other, much better options. And I'm plain sick of those options.
Yeah, I thought that Mute wouldn't be at school today. And he wasn't :"( Really been missing you Mute, if you ever see this!
What does everyone think of this new carbon emission reduction scheme? Too much or too little a target? Is it a good or bad way of going about "saving the world"? Etc
Me? I think the target is too small. At LEAST start on 15% and work up to 25%. But NO.
... Then again, I was always an eco freako.
I CAN'T PLAY HOCKEY TONIGHT
Anyways, on that sad note, I shall say goodbye. Goodbye!
Monday, December 15, 2008
Anyways, Mute is back at school! YAY! Missed him HEAPS.
But Katie wasn't at school. She's gone to Samoa. Lucky.
Hand still bad. But not so much at the moment. Thank heavens for that :)
Gotta go now, bye.

I was reading Finding Cassie Crazy earlier, the bit where Cass meets Matthew Dunlop in the reserve and he is so utterly vicious and leaves her in the rain. And then her two friends Em and Lyd come in to see her soaked to the bone and sobbing. Em and Lyd resolve to find Matthew Dunlop. They do. They are now deciding on revenge.
I cried when I read the bits about Cass in the reserve. I always do. But now it was sadder than ever, because before a couple of months ago I pretty much never saw any of my friends cry.
And now I have, way too often, and I know it is one of the most heart-breaking things ever. Especially if they are so strong that you'd never pin them to cry.
Anyway, Finding Cassie Crazy is a great book - hilarious, heart-breaking, intense, light-hearted, intriguing ...
Far out, I LOATHE my hand!
So anyway, I am damn annoyed at not being able to write. I so need to. But there's nothing to be done, is there?

BEAUTY IS BETTER THAN BRAINS
Honestly. So damn shallow. And the sevvies (who were affirmative) had the stupidest arguments. Eg "I'd be more likely to talk to a beautiful person". Although ... they did get quite a BURN in - when negative (Year 8) said that brains could create artificial beauty, affirmative came back with "Cos they KNOW that beauty is better than brains". WHAT A BURN.
Year 8 won. YES! Else we could never had lived it down.
I reckon that my Maths teacher is a stalker. Cos now there are at least three people in my class that have seen her in weird places outside of school. Sydney MacDonald's, clarinet lesson and hospital ...
Here's a poem I wrote:
One feel and you’re taken
Once is enough
It won’t be forsaken
One taste and it won’t be forgotten
The memory won’t leave
It’s sweet, but rotten
One moment and you’re caught
It’s a master
That must be constantly fought
One more time
Means one more regret
It’s another personal crime
Another thing you want to forget
Obviously, about addiction. It'd be horrid, losing pretty much all free will to something.
I find heavier topics so much easier to write about. I don't know why. But if you ask me to write about something like true love or friendship or something, I'd get stuck for ages, and then what I wrote won't be to my usual standard.
Hence all the poetry about broken relationships, depression, addiction, etc. It doesn't mean I've gone through it all - hell no, not all of it - but that's where imagination comes in.
Actually earlier today I got told I had no imagination. But I find that person to be extremely annoying and such a try-hard / wannabe anyway, so it don't bother me so.
Ok, ok, here are some more poems ... some of you have been asking for them:
Once Upon A Time
Once upon a time.
Isn't that how fairytales begin?
That's how our tale began, anyway -
but as to whether this is a fairytale ...
let’s just say
it’s up for debate.
So much kinder that way,
instead of saying argument.
Because argument equals conflict.
And though even fairytales have this,
there’s also a happy ending.
But you can’t see this.
And that is why
there will be no happy ending,
Just To Leave Me One More Time
Tonight, my pain will cease to exist
Cos you said you would come over
And that we’ll have dinner
Then go out a while
“The fresh air will be good for you
My pale little angel”
He knew I was hiding some great wound
I never thought he was setting me up for greater
You came over
But ate quickly
You took me to some abandoned park
And said words you swore you’d never say
Then turned about and left
With an air of elegance and nobility
That left me shocked
Since when was agony elegant and noble?
Tonight, my pain has just begun
Cos you said you’d come over
And you did
Just to leave me one more time
The latter one I won a book with ... Loathing Lola, by William Kostakis. It's a good book - read it if you ever get the chance to.
So, there's some of my poetry. Happy?
I finally heard Decode (Paramore) on the radio yesterday ... It oughta be played more though. Instead of all that crap music like Kings of Leon or Newton Faulkner or heaps of other people / bands that I've not heard the name of and definitely won't go outta my way to find out.
All right, I'm off to write more. I've been pretty slack writing-wise lately, even my handwriting's gone crap. However I've doen heapsa drawings, for Christmas cards. Lol they were so fun to do. I stayed well away from your stereotypical Christmas card and just did pretty rough but sparky drawings that rip off modern Christmas ideas (such as Santa).
OK! I'm going!
Thursday, December 11, 2008
Rhod's really been shook up by her and Katie's friendship slowly loosening.
And Mit ... you are so not like yourself sometimes. Like today. Something was wrong, and you finally admitted it to me, but you said it was a long story. By that, I thought that you didn't really want to talk, so I didn't try to pressure you. But I'm not so sure about my decision any more. Because I'm so damn worried about you.
Things are going crazy - actually they've been crazy a while - and it's just downright confusing me.
Sure I'm still enjoying life ... but there's also a lot more to feel sad and angry and confused about. So ...
Things were more simple earlier.
Wednesday, December 10, 2008
I guess I'll just go back to being so damn sentimental and shallow and wish for the past, when things weren't so painful, confusing, vivid ...
I guess that the greater the suffering, the better you feel after it. But why does it have to be so costly?
That's all I've time for tonight. I want to look at a DVD before I drop dead (yuk, bad choice of words ... ) of exhaustion.
Monday, December 8, 2008
I'm at home, waiting for a doctor's appointment for an extension on a referral, then I'll be back at school. I worry when I'm not at school. Cos of how precarious things are at the moment.
I got some CD / DVD set of Paramore's 'The Final Riot' gig in Chicago on Saturday. Some of the songs sound even better live, like We Are Broken. I can't decide whether Emergency and Hallelujah are better live or not, cos it's not too much different, but where it's different it's different in a good way. But it the recorded versions were also good ...
I want to watch the DVD, but I'm gonna have to wait ...
Doesn't life seem to be all about waiting?
My sister got a mobile on the weekend, and Mum and Dad got new ones. Of course, everyone's HAS to be better than mine, and everyone's HAS to have a camera ...
Oh well. At least no-one else has Rayman 3 on their phone, hehehe :)
On Sunday I went to the Central Coast to see my little cuz Keira. She's about a month or two old now, and is soooooooooooooooo cute. Pretty much the whole family on my Dad's side were there, so we had photos as well. :( Don't much like photos ... except when I'm taking them. But I don't get to take many ... :(
We stopped in at my Nan and Grandpa's for some painkillers and cos a hailstorm was brewing. My Mum had knee surgery a few weeks ago, and so her leg isn't in the best condition atm ...
Anyway, going to have recess and then go to my doctor's appointment ... Bye.
Saturday, December 6, 2008
I am just ...
Well, I was down in Sydney tonight, after school, with some friends and peoples who go to my church. And after we'd done whatev, we went to Macca's for dinner, as per usual (we do this every so often ... ). It was about 8:30 ... yeah late dinner. And I was sitting down eating mah burger (chicken bacon - is sparky) ... and someone calls my name. I look up and see ...
MY MATHS TEACHER.
(dunh dunh DUNH!)
But think of it. 8:30pm, both of us well away from where we live ...
MUST IT HAD BEEN MY MATHS TEACHER?
At least she didn't ask why I wasn't in class today. Cos then I would've had to have said, Oh I was in the hosptial having a diabetes checkup and a blood test and everything was damn horrible ...
But yeah, she was nice ...
I was in school for second half lunch and English. Bludge.
Everything seemed OK though ... I don't think there's any new happening for me to worry myself sick about ...
Uhuh. My checkup was damn horrid and I don't wanna talk about it. I just don't like hospitals, doctors, needles, blood tests, operating rooms (although I didn't see one today, THANK GOODNESS), etc ...
I ALSO DON'T LIKE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT ME LIKE I'M NOT THERE. WHEN I AM AND LISTENING EVEN WHEN I'M TRYING TO BLOCK IT ALL OUT.
Sheesh. Why is it that all adults do that?
Ok. I'll just talk more about my Sydney trip.
I was in the car with my cousin / friend Madi, my uncle / Madi's dad, and two other girls. We had so much fun going down. Just talking randomly. And towards the end playing a game that mixed Spotto and Punchbuggy. A punchbuggy is worth 10 points, a spotto is worth one. Kayto won, with 2 punchbuggys and 2-4 spottos. I came second, about 17 spottos (lol). Mado third, one punchbuggy and a spotto. Rach last with one or two spottos.
Then on the way back Kayto wasnt in the car. She was staying down in Sydney. Mado, Rach and I talked heaps about Harry Potter and then got onto random things. We spent pretty much the entire trip back home in hysterics. I was usually the cause of them (either fortunately or unfortunately I cannot tell you ... ).
Anyway ... "Hey Dad, I'm on the freeway ... IN A SPUGGY!"
Yeah. Spuggy is my name for a yellow VW Beetle. Mix of Spotto and Buggy ...
Anyhow, gettin late, so shall go now ...
(STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THAT MACCA'S THING!)
Thursday, December 4, 2008
I don't know if I even want to say anything. Cos too many people can just come onto this blog and find out all about whatever ...
Well this whole friend-on-friend thing is really getting to me. It's getting to everyone. I'm sick of the people who are being so two-faced. I'm sick of watching K and R and C cry. I'm sick of feeling so damn bad cos of everything going on without looking like it'll ever end, and there's nothing that can be done about it. I'm sick of feeling like I'm gonna cry one minute, then feeling nothing the next cos it's just been buried somewhere where I can't find it. I'm sick of feeling so damn bad one minute then the next laughing hysterically at nothing. I'm sick of all this fighting and backstabbing. I'm sick of everything. I want things to be how they used to be, but feel stupid for wanting that because it's past and sentimental. I'm sick of so much more, but can't find the words to say them, and I don't want to face saying them.
I don't want to admit it to ... anyone ... , but maybe I do need these sessions with the psychologist. In fact maybe I've needed them all along. But it's so hard for me to talk about my problems, cos that goes against 1) how I am 2) how I deal with the bad stuff.
I don't want anyone changing their opinions about me just cos maybe I have problems. I'm the same person. I'm just trying to deal with something that's come up.
Well ... with all that out ... maybe I feel worse. I don't know now. I guess I'll have to wait and see.
But it's kinda ... idk ... embarrassing ... I don't do this sorta thing.
Tuesday, December 2, 2008
Pretty much what I'm doing in my head atm. Yeah strange. Get used to it. :)
Seriously though, I'm so emotioned out. Cos of all the fighting in my group of friends at school recently. And today, we were given back our maths yearly results and everyone's (well ... pretty much everyone's :( ) were totally horrid.
And then SOMEONE decides to take their bitterness over a bad mark (which pretty much everyone got) on someone ELSE ... and that someone else had their birthday today.
Gosh she and another person 'someone' scared cos of their mood was in tears. And I'm not taking it out on you or taking K&Rs side, it's just that you need to learn a bit more control.
OK, I'll stop writing such depressing stuff cos I know no-one wants to hear it. I just lyk venting.
So ... Saturday Odog had a gingerbread making party, and it was sparky as! So much fun! Lessee ... Rhoddie, Lilah, Jodie, Brad, Mute, Puzzle and Nutmeg came along. Brad's gingerbread house was the best - JELLY BABY HELL!
Omigosh, Odog's dog is so cute :) Mute found his new best friend :)
And Puzzle learned to like Skippy too :)
Saturday was also my dad's birthday ... Mum and I had bought him two of the Bourne movies foe his bday a while ago, and Mum found the most hilarious place to hide them :) But I can't tell you. His Christmas present is there too and I know for a fact Dad checks my blog and devART at times ... :(
I've got the first two periods of tomorrow off - vocal stuff. Going over some carols and singing the school song for the 09 sevvies.
Yessssssssss, outta Geography and English, hehehehe ...

Why did I start blogging then, you ask? FOR SOMETHING TO DO. I was bored the day I started. And besides, it sounded fun. It has been.
Lol. In uni, cultural studies is shortened as CULT. Would you like to join a cult? It only cost on average about $10 000 last year!
Uhuh, apparently uni entry fees last year were an average of $10 000. Scary, no?
And join our soccer (SOCA - sociolog and social anthropolgy) club for the same fee!
Yep, I'm thinking now. Which means soon I shold be getting to homework. Never stops ... :(
"No noose is good noose!"
Bye now. Off to conquer Homeworkland.
It was OK.
We had some tax office thing, were people from the ATO came in and told us to get tax file numbers. Or else.
Rhoddie and Puzzle cos of their stupid teacher got failed in their History exam. I hate that teacher. She can be good, but at the end of the day ...
Crystal was excited cos she was taking the bus home with Brad. She was literally counting down the minutes ... :)
I had heapsa fun cos I could TALK PROPERLY today, pretty much ALL day, whereas I hadn't been able to do that for a full two weeks (at least I think it was two weeks ... yes it is ...). YAY!!!! Although, my throat was really bad after Drama cos we were reading through some Monty Python scripts. They were so funny though! And I even likes the Spam one! Viking (singing): Spam, spam, lovely spam, wondeful spam!
I also had fun cos I got to play OzTag. Even though my nose was running miles.
It felt so people-missing today though! Cos Katie and Jodie are in Sydney for State debating. :( WE MISS YOUSE!
Lol. It seems that me having a blog has caused a chain reaction. A few of my friends have started some up, and then their friends have ...
At the moment I don't wanna think. It's too hot to think. It's too BORING to think ...
And if I did start thinking, who knows where the thoughts could end up. So much better just to sit here gazing into the depths of the computer screen ... which isn't very deep. Yep, you heard that right computer. You are SHALLOW.
See why I don't wanna think? I might start talking to the computer! Or worse!
NO! DON'T TURN THE AIR-CON OFF! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Well, there's your fix of nichts besonderes for the moment. You might get something better when I start wanting to think. Auf Wiedersehen!
(Wait ... is that how you spell it? WHAT DOES IT MATTER ANYWAY! I'M NOT THINKING!)

I wrote this a bit over a month and a half ago. It's OK. Not my best. But it's not too gloomy either. My poetry tends to be quite gloomy. It's just easier to write that way. Always has been. In Yr 6 pretty much every character I wrote about dies, lol.
The Night Is Calling
Pools of ink around me
Taunting the feeble streetlight
A carpet of pitch embraces me
A gentle hand blocking my sight
A fervent shiver through the shade
An energy springs into being
Lethargy does go and fade
For the night is ... freeing
The night is whispering urgently
Can you not hear it?
The night is beckoning insistently
How can you not answer it?
The night is calling
The bonds are falling
Out in the black I wander
Doing as I will when I will
Memories gloomy always fonder
Come now and take your fill
This next one I wrote for those in my life who've been touched by depression. It's amazing, the amount of people who are. It's also not fair.
And for those I wrote it for, I hope you find your stars ...
Stars and Storms
The bleak sky
Has two small specks of light
But behind her
The winds hurl themselves around
Angering the clouds
Which spew hot blue lightning
And boulders of hail
It has become a race
A deadly game
As the storm behind her
Sets its sight on those weak distant stars
If she can fend off the storm
Of her depression and fury
She will reach the stars
And have peace a while
Peace enough to carry her through
Whatever comes next
So run girl run
And win this race
Anyway, if you want to read more of my poetry, check out my deviantART [link]
Reading some of my schoolfriends' blogs. Seems as if all us are facing some storms of our own at the moment. Honestly tho, u add up all the problems me and some of my friends have had ...
Apart from feeling bad for some of my friends atm tho, and not going to skool cos today my throat was sore as and I felt tired as a rat on heapsa tranquilisers, I'm pretty good.
Ugh, the song going thru my head! So outta place! I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do by ABBA. Come on! And to think it's THAT going through my head when the only music I've listened to today was a bit of 30 Seconds To Mars!
The world is weird sometimes ...
I got a Gmail account yesterday or the day before. Gmail, despite what my friend Mado says, is really good. But then, hers doesn't have many functions ... it's just a basic one for school. It's a primary school email account.
Yay, she's coming to my school next year :)
*sigh* Just rambling on here, really. Gives me something to do.
Bye for now ...
Here are some of my favourites from there:
ROMEO AND JULIET
Romeo: Oh, Juliet!
Juliet: Oh, Romeo!
Romeo: Oh, Juliet!
Juliet: Oh, Romeo!
Romeo: Oh, Juliet! (dies)
Juliet: Oh, Romeo!......Romeo?......Dammit.
THE RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER
Ancient Mariner: I am creepy and old. Listen to me.
Wedding Guest: I'm late, but I'll listen.
Ancient Mariner: I killed an albatross. Then everyone died.
Edward Cullen: Hoo mama, I can't decide whether to drink your blood or kiss you passionately.
Bella Swan: That's hot.
THE SILVER CHAIR
(EUSTACE and JILL run away from some bullies and end up in NARNIA. They fret over a bunch of SIGNS, then go underground and learn about the evils of ATHEISM. They go back to England with CASPIAN and beat the living daylights out of some KIDS.)
Ok, there yas go, some things to laugh at.
Tuesday, November 25, 2008
REALLY sorry about the depressed tone of the last blog. It's just really getting me down.
Ok. Next post I will probably put some of my poetry on ...
Tho I may chicken out ... :)
Saturday, November 22, 2008
I'm afraid today was NOT the best of days. Unfortunately that seems to be happening a lot these days, no matter how much I try not to let anything work me up.
I just realised how many bands I like come from Melbourne. It's really weird.
"I hope you drop dead gorgeous
I hope you drop dead anyway!"
Lol, that song is so funny.
I'm sorry guys, I know I go on about songs heaps. But I like my music. And it's so easy to relate to - even more so than books. I think that's because music more truly reflects what life can be like, and in a more stirring way. Whereas books are only words on a page. Music has words, sound, layers ...
Anyway, enough of the philosophy. I do that enough without having to plague others about it.
"All your faking
Shows you're breaking"
So true ... :(
The Rogue Trader song 'What Your On' ... I seem to be understanding that now. I always thought WTH????!!!! when I heard it ... but something's changed, and it makes so much sense. And to think it's so sad and I never realised ...
Yeah yeah yeah I'm bashing myself today. But I deserve it. I told myself I'd do something, something really important for me, and I didn't, couldn't, wouldn't do it ... whichever it was. And what hurts more is that at odd times I try to justify it. There is no justification for failing myself.
And on that sombre note, I leave.

I went to the doctor's today, a follow-up from my previous one. Seems that on top of whatever the viral infection I have has already given me - head cold, ear infection, tonsilitus and headaches - that I may have some thyroid problems or glandular fever. This just keeps getting better and better (!)
But despite that, I am feeling a little bit better and should be at school on Monday.
When I don't have that blood test ... it's needed to confirm that thyroid stuff ...
My mum had knee surgery yesterday, and she's in the hospital recovering. She looks OK. Once she's fully recovered she'll be better off than how she started. But that'll take time ...
Yesterday they had this drain in her leg, I'm not sure what for. It was full of blood though. I didn't know you could lose that much blood and still be in relatively good shape.
I know it sounds stupid but I can't wait to get back to school. I haven't seen any of my friends from there in over a week. Sad-making :(
I'm worried sick (lol NO~, no reference to my physical state intended) about some of my friends ...
This is the official Decode music video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvnkAtWcKYg. I love that song. The trailer is pretty good. It uses clips from the movie Twilight (the song is also part of the movie soundtrack) and there's also Paramore in there too - what good music video doesn't have some representation of the band in it?
LOL, I just remembered something ... My cousin Madi was asked by some of her friends who she likes, but she either didn't want to say or didn't like a guy at that moment, so after getting pressured she makes up some random guy and calls him Tyler Clark. Yesterday I was reading some magazine she and I like (most of yas wouldn't know it) and there was this article written by a ... *drum roll* ... TYLER CLARK!
SPARKY AS COINCIDENCE!
Oh, her reaction when I showed her ...
Anyways, that's all for now.

That sparky artist, Anne Stokes, who did that 'Dragon Reflection' artwork I featured in the previous entry? She has a deviantART account! YAY :)
It be: http://ironshod.deviantart.com/ and her gallery: http://ironshod.deviantart.com/gallery/#_featured
Look and be amazed! I sure was!
SO hope I don't go and commit academic suicide in these yearlies ... I haven't been in good condition to study cos I've been so sick lately. It's gonna cost me. Unfairly :'(
SO not looking forward to this ...
Til next time
Sunday, November 16, 2008
This one, which I found in the same book, is 'Angel of Death' by Abrar Ajmal. The concept is quite interesting, and it's definitely a good artwork.
So what does everyone think of those two artworks?
At the moment I'm reading the Obernewtyn Chronicles. They're written by Isobelle Carmody. The fifth book came out fairly recently. In a way I'm a little annoyed, cos the fourth book had a good definitive ending, and because the fifth one is open and there are obviously going to be more books, I'm gonna have to wait for them. But it's a good series, so overall I was pretty excited.
Alright, I shall go now ... but don't worry! I'll be back soon.
Thursday, November 13, 2008
But it just goes to show how small Ireland is ...
I've been taken off some medication, an antibiotic, I was on cos apparently it was making me sick. And now that I'm not taking it, I'm sick AGAIN, cos it was holding some infection at bay.
On or off, it doesn't seem to matter!
So now I can hardly talk, my mouth nose throat ear head hurt ... whereas before it was just bad stomach and head aches! Put me back on!
Lol, one of the socks I'm wearing has heaps of holes and the other is in pristine condition compared to it.
I like socks. I almost always wear them. It feels weird not wearing them for an extended period of time.
Hmmmmmmmmm, cos of the infection I missed school today ...
I made some pact to be at school to rehearse for drama. Even if I dragged my sick body to school it wouldn't've helped. I can't speak ... it's more of a whistle. Funny to hear :)

Youse have all GOT to watch this:
Sorry, but the video won't upload so you gotta take the link.
Trust me you will never regret watching it. It is HILARIOUS!
It's Jensen Ackles singing to 'Eye of the Tiger' at the end of a Supernatural episode ... a SPARKY episode :) Dean caught this sickness which made you scared of everything :)
Out of system now ... sorta ... WATCH IT!
I was watching the Power Rangers movie, with the dinosaurs and the school and all (yes, childish I know but some of my cousins wanted to watch it) and the girl Kira was wearing these SPARKY arm-sock things. I WANT THEM.
Here is piccy :)
Look at arm
Note the yellow sock-like thing
That's all there's time for today folks!
Saturday, November 8, 2008
I'm trying to find a cord so I can link my MP3 to the computer. I can't find it. Dad musta hidden it :(
He hasn't been too nice lately. Always grumpy, doling out punishments, etc.
Ok, it wasn't Dad. Mum musta moved it cos it was on her textbook, which was on her desk.
Just requested the Obernewtyn Chronicles from the library. Again. Cos I just reread Obernewtyn.
Isobelle Carmody is a great author. But a lot of my friends aren't into the fantasy genre. Tho I got a friend who supposedly DIDN'T lyk fantasy to read Sabriel, by Garth Nix. She loved it. :)
OMIGOSH the Living End's Moment In the Sun video clip was just on! SO SPARKY!
Trust me it was! Even if I wasn't so biased I'd say that!
They oughta put on Paramore's Decode video clip. I wanna see that. It was released a couple of days ago, the 3rd ...
Anyways, going now ... bye!
Thursday, November 6, 2008
For those who DON'T know Ultimate Frisbee (you poor poor things), it's a sport played with a frisbee. The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible by catching the frisbee in the 'end zone'. It's a fun game.
My team and some other friends' team lost all our games :) Still had HEAPS of fun, tho!
But now I'm sunburnt :( I ALWAYS get sunburnt :(
AND I have a bit of a weird cough.
Apart from that I'm cool.
So yeah, the day was spent playing heaps of UF games and hanging out with friends (cos heapsa friends went =]).
Some of the other teams though! There was a boys U/15's team, twice as big as my friends' team ... They were SUPPOSED to be under 15 anyway, but they weren't :( So my friends' team got flogged :( Thank goodness my team wasn't a guys team (duh ... )so we didn't have to play. It was painful enough just watching tho ...
One of the schools in the comp came up from Sydney and I was thinking THIS ISN'T A DAMN SYDNEY COMP. GO HOME! And their U/18's girl team ... they are TANKS.
OK. Enough UF raving ...
Oh just one more thing - my team was tortured today cos we had to wear these Sydney Swans bibs so you could see who's on what team. :( NO ONE LIKES YOU SWANNIES! EXCEPT MAYBE JESS!
Yeah, definite torture ...
I'm hungry. I'm gonna have something to eat. I haven't had too much yet ... a little bit of tuna ...
Ok, the cold spaghetti was good! I like pasta :)
Lol. I was drinking some water today and some ran out my nose. I was like, WHA??????????
Ya. I'm hyped up. I had plenty of fruit and sugar today :) Glow in the dark M&M's ... yuuuummmmm ...
I'll go now. Ultimate Frisbee was the highlight of the day.
Oh - Dad went to Sydney today ... doing something for work ... probably some seminar ... dunno.
He goes to heaps. Some overseas :)
Wednesday, November 5, 2008
I had a dream last night or early this morning (sometime before 6am) that I was trying to get away from something horrid anyway I could. But no matter what I did, I couldn't. I was helpless. And if there's a feeling I could never like in any way, it's helplessness.
Couple that with miscellaneous leftover bad feelings from yesterday, such as losing the hockey match ...
Lol. Barack Obama won the American election. Guess his name would've helped with advertising, wouldn't it? Seriously though, it was pretty obvious he was gonna win, and he looked like one of the better candidates of the lot.
Like, much better than Sarah Palin or whatever her name was. All that stuff about her ... like the clothing and newspaper stuff ... you wouldn't want such a figure at the head of such a powerful country.
That Clinton chick or whoever she was, she was pretty big in the beginning. But what happened to her? She dropped out of the spotlight somehow. Can't even remember her name.
I never heard anything about that McCain guy except that no-one liked him.
That's all I really got to say at the moment ... nothing really happening ...
If I think of something, it'll be in next post. Duh.
Tuesday, November 4, 2008
OH NO. Kill me now! I LOATHE THIS SONG!
Anyone who likes the song 'Angels', by Robbie Williams ... I do not understand you, and never will.
Yes that means at least half my family. But it's true!
Rofl, Robbie Williams thinks he's Sean Connery reincarnated. Hate to break it to ya, buddy ... BUT THERE'S NO WAY IN HELL YOU ARE!
What I wouldn't give to be doing something like some photography right now ... but I haven't got a camera, and I don't have any good programs to stuff around with the photo later. :(
I just want something to do! So sick of the usual reading, drawing, running around, writing even!
Geography in particular. A 5 minute presentation and speech on some current global issue? Ok, I don't mind learning and researching about some, but that's too far. And he's just a weird teacher ... and I don't like his attitude at ALL when it comes to religion. He just doesn't understand religion and it seems like he's out there to offend anyone with any slight religious belief.
I guess that apart from some small things school is pretty good. But those 'small' things ... really don't seem that small! Far from it!
Anyways, bye now ... off to do whatever, I guess ... get ready for hockey.
Yay. Hockey. SOMETHING to look forward to.
Monday, November 3, 2008
Argh, I'm dying a slow painful death ... I should NEVER have told Mum she could play that Robbie Williams DVD. I thought I could drown it out with Paramore (poor TLE's gotten pushed over the side for the moment) but obviously not ... DX
I officially abhor html. Do you know how dull it is typing all that stuff, for just one stupid thing?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
At least I get a break, til next week ... :)
I'm a-going to the library tonight! For the first time in AGES (a bit over a week, which is ages for me ... not my fault I read so quick). Yay.
Ugh *shudder*. The combination of Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue should NEVER have been allowed!
My sisters probably only like that stuff cos my mum does :(
Is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO annoying!
And so is Michael Jackson. Australian Idol should go die in a hole. I had to endure the torment of one of the Idol-peeps singing Michael Jackson last night ... *shudder AGAIN*
"Maybe if my heart stops beating it won't hurt this much ... "
But still good line, if a little ... depressed sounding.
Of course it's good.
It's Paramore ... :)
Ok I'll go now and spare yous all more Paramore raving. Cos it's probs pretty repetitive right now.
Saturday, November 1, 2008
"Explain to me
This conspiracy against me"
I got Paramore's first album today
The library didn't have it, so I had to buy it :(
They'd betta have Short Stack. Short Stack is funneh!
Guess what? THEY DON'T
Can't WAIT til Paramore's next album comes out. And it'll have my most fave song ever on there! It's called Decode. It's also on the Twilight soundtrack, when IT comes out ...
Friday, October 31, 2008
We've all heard people going off their nut at Stephenie Meyer because of how she ended Bella's part in Twilight. But what exactly did she do wrong? I can't think of ANYTHING (except maybe a proper fight scene ... ).
However, PLEASE look CRITICALLY at the Deathly Hallows. Come on, we can ALL see it was written WAY too quickly - too slow in all the boring parts, not as engaging as the rest of the books, overkill with the killing, overkill in flipping sides ... etc. And look what she did to her characters. Like Dumbledore. And Hermione. Hermione should NEVER have ended up marrying Ron. JK Rowling should have thought of a better ending. I mean, sure, in one way it's good ... but it wasn't a very subtle ending. It was all, here's what happens to this this this this this this this and this and BAM, I don't want to write anymore.
UGH, is ANYONE getting my point?
Maybe I shoulda done this at a time when mah brain can do things better ...
It's not that I'm insulting Harry Potter, it's just that the Deathly Hallows could have been written better. And don't go off at some perfectly good writers who haven't done anything wrong when other perfectly good writers who slipped up a bit get unnoticed.
Wednesday, October 29, 2008
Oh well ...
Monday, October 27, 2008
Birthday tomoz :) I already got two prezzies, $50 and an MP3 player ...
Still got more to come :)
Last week when I played hockey my team won, yay.
WHAT a weekend ... scraped the skin off my elbows with carpet burn, my aunt Emma had her baby, my uncle Gideon came back from quite a while overseas ... :)
And now I'm sick :(
I ABHOR being sick.
It felt like I was gonna drown in snot, YUK.
And my mind has been fuzzy since about Friday, I'm unable to focus on ANYTHING. Makes doing schoolwork a LOT harder than it should be. :(
I'm gonna try do more h/w ...
Sunday, October 19, 2008
Today I shall make some raspbery jelly. :) Or some chocolate mousse :)
MY FISRT SUMMER 08-09 HOCKEY MATCH ON TUESDAY! SO EXCITING!
I got new shin pads cos my old ones are small and falling apart. It took heapsa mucking aroung to get my shin pads tho cos the store I went to first didn't have any that I likes in the right size so I had to go to another store in another complex :(
School was ok last week. My new drama assessment looks pretty cool. We are supposed to get in small groups and come up with an original play based on a word or phrase. My group has a sparky idea :) But I'm not saying what it is :)
STUPID topic for English :( Australian Image. BORING.
I had a school choir eistoddfod thingo on Friday. Not much competition - only one other school in my division. And my choir won :) We spent the rest of the day hanging out in the general area about where we sang - up the street, at the park, by the lake ... It was fun by the lake, hiding people's bags, making paper boats with silly messages on them (eg call this number!) and pretending to try push people in ...
Hmmm, I was thinking the other day, if there was an illness that everyone or nearly everyone had, then would it be considered normal or would people still try to cure it or hospitalise you for it or make you go for counselling or what? Or would the people without it be considered abnormal and / or sent for counselling?
Maybe it would depend on what the effects of the illness was ...
Still thinking on that, going now ...
Friday, October 17, 2008
Not much be happening, except for school being funner than usual and people being more mysterious and hyped up than usual. Why so mysterious?!
I hate secrets being kept from me. Actually, not just secrets, ANYTHING. :(
I had the strangest ice cream today. It was dry and in pellet form but when you ate it it melted into ice cream and felt cold. ?? Weird.
Yay, summer hockey starts next week. My first game Tuesday! Missed ya, hockey!
I read some (if not all that's out yet) Jennifer Lynn Barnes' books this week and they are sparky as. Golden and Platinum are part of the same series, about some girls with the Sight and what happens because of it. Tattoo is the first of a series, about a group of four girls and them taking on the third Fate to help the other two Fates.
Yeah pretty sparky.
That's all I can think of now ...
Monday, October 13, 2008
Holidays over :(
I did a quick weird thing in Paint on the computer of Edward Cullen the other day. It's on my deviantART page. Not the best of things, it would be so much easier if I could put some proper drawings on, but it'll do ... for now. :)
I had a BBQ thingo with my soccer team on Saturday. Ok. We had a game, us vs parents. I'm ashamed to say it was either a tie or we lost. Can't remember. :)
I'm getting a trophy tho :) But I can't be at the Presentaion Day :( Very sad-making. So unsparky :(
This be a sparky face :-9 He be Mr Nose Licker. Say hello!
I wonder what tortures there will be at school this term? Ummm, end of year exams. End of year report. Maths (cos we finished equations). Trying to finish off my CO2 dragster in time (sometimes it DOESN'T pay to be a perfectionist!). And who knows what other horrors school has in store ...
On the other hand, there's Orientation Day, scaring soon-to-be-sevvies, hanging out with my cousin / friend whom I DON'T call a soon-to-be-sevvy, just a soon-to-be-at-my-schoolie. :)
So, see yas at the other end of the day one of term four torture ... if I make it :)
Thursday, October 9, 2008
Here's the site: http://nighthauntachika.deviantart.com/ Feel free to critique or rave or even just look at :)
School next week, **** it! Oh well, new English topic - no more "humour". Honestly, hardly anything we looked at was humorous ... And no more cricket in PE, that's good :)
So today, I finally got to watch the season final of Doctor Who. Wow, they managed to push it to the edge!
:( No more Doctor Who til 2010 :(
Well just a wuick update for the mo, and don't forget to check out my deviantART!
PS And say hi to your boyfriend for me :) lol.
IF you have one ... :)
Wednesday, October 8, 2008
I've spent the last half hour listening to their song Decode which so far is only available thru their website (I think). Link to Decode if anyone is interested: http://www.paramore.net/mediaplayer?mediaListId=8a0af8121ca10443011cb954d3762a3f
It is SUCH a sparky song, I am so in love with it. OK maybe not, that sounds too weird. But I mean, who COULDN'T like it heaps? It's one of the songs going into the Twilight movie :) Paramore has two going in, can't WAIT to hear the other one.
And of course, Muse's Supermassive Black Hole is also going in :) Great song, and Muse may even be re-releasing it! Making it more Twilight-y! :)
I watched a couple of movies recently. One is Tank Girl. I'd recommend it to almost everyone (M rating attached ... that accounts for the ALMOST part ... ) it is SO hilarious ...
I also watched Resident Evil (Ok, I know it's M15+ but I was bored and couldn't go to sleep) and it was pretty good too. It was sparky seeing Milla Jojovich without that accent she has to put on for her part in The Fifth Element. She also seems to have an ability to have unique outfits for the movies she's in, cos you sure don't see people dressed like her anywhere.
That's all I got time for, even tho I don't wanna go to bed.
Ugh I hate Daylight Savings ...
Thursday, October 2, 2008
Why is Robert Pattinson on it tho? Isn't it enough he's got the lead male part in the movie? LOL
Luna Park today was sparkeh. Ride after ride :) In between ducking into any airconned rooms we could find, which was only one, where we all parked out stuff so ...
Heapsa needles too :) Nah not drugs! Shame on you, jumping to the worst conclusions! Was medication :)
There were only two guys on the trip, but fifteen of us girls XP= Haha. And one of the guys didn't go on any rides.
Kinda defeats the point of going to Luna Park, doesn't it?
These holiday posts are so SHORT aren't they?
Wednesday, October 1, 2008
I need new books. I went to the library Saturday and Monday I finished them. They were six LONG books. That's how bored I got.
My cousins and I are doing a comedy soap opera, and one day we'll film an episode on Mado's camera. I'm writing a theme song for it :)
Well ... that's all pretty much. That's how boring holidays are.
Monday, September 29, 2008
I want something to HAPPEN.
Oh, yeah, IMPORTANT NOTICE:
HAWTHORN WON THE AFL GRAND FINAL!
It was a great match.
Bored out of my mind now, so I'll go find something to do, or blog about.
Saturday, September 27, 2008
But now it will, well SHOULD change becos it is now SCHOOL HOLIDAYS!!!!!!
Monday night I had this really weird thing on for school, it's called POSH concert. It's where HSC music students and the school ensembles get to show off our talent. Haha. Anyways I was there for choir. It was a pretty fun night, exploring the Conservatorium and just hanging with friends.
Jaclyn Moriarty is writing a new Ashbury book :D And Garth Nix is writing TWO MORE Old Kingdom books!! Yay.
I'm reading heapsa Garth Nix and Scott Westerfeld at the mo. Just if anyone was wondering.
Ah, holidays ... I'm going to Sydney Luna Park for a day on the 8th. Luna Park is pretty cool but the Gold Coast beats anything, so far ...
I got a new Xbox game, so if I run out of things to read or blog about or blogs to go to I've got that.
Gotta go now
Saturday, September 20, 2008
Yup I was tired this morning. But I still braved the EXTREMELY HOT day. I shoulda just stayed in bed, it was so hot. It's not supposed to be summer yet.
So that's all for now. Nice and short.
Geelong is onto the AFL Grand Final. I hope Saint KFC joins them cos 1) cool name and 2) don't know much about Hawthorn. I won't barrack for a team when I don't have a clue where they even come from, plus I don't know any of their supporters, etc.
It was a close game between Geelong and the Bulldogs. But Geelong got back on top, with their FIFTEENTH CONSECUTIVE WIN. How do you get so good u thrash everyone u meet fifteen times in a row?
Ugh, another day tomorrow ... I'm getting this feeling that every day repeats itself ... cos nothing that exciting has happened in AGES. I'm even stuck bookreading.
WAIT. The new Eragon book came out today. Once I get my hands on that I'll have a week max worth of reading. Trouble is getting my hands on it ...
ARGH this is what u get staying up too long.
Hey I might be going to Luna Park again. With some diabetics this time. Another advantage of being a diabetic is that u get to go on heaps cool trips and camps and stuff organised by the local DA office or whoever. It is awesome.
Anyway, I'm off to chase some cows. I got sick of counting sheep. Besides, running around and getting on the wrong side of a bull and getting chased by it may tire me more quickly than counting some boring baaing sheep.
Friday, September 19, 2008
Ok, not as good as the Living End. But I don't think ANYONE will be better than TLE. They are UNBEATABLE.
"They call me Hell
They call me Stacey
They call me her
They call me Jane
THAT'S NOT MY NAME!"
Good song, good song. The Ting Tings, of course.
Yay finished my Science assignment. Put heapsa work into it. I'd betta get full marks, cos I reckon I filled all the criteria. But my Science teacher don't like me so she MIGHT mark me down. Wouldn't be surprised.
Anyone who's heard Impacilla Carpisung understand what's being sung? Cos I only catch the odd word or two. Really confusing.
Haha I still find it funny that the Broncos beat the Sydney Chickens. (This is rugby for those who dunno). A friend was going, oh the Roosters are gonna beat Brisbane for sure - the Broncos ain't gotta chance. And then the Chickens went and got themselves beat. :)
Who's in the AFL Grand Final or don't we know yet? I don't follow any sport, but I still watch the occasional match (when it comes to soccer and hockey I watch as many as possible tho).
I read a REALLY weird book yesterday. It's called 'What Happened to Cass McBride' or something like that, by Gabrielle Zevin. It's about this guy who buries some girl alive. Like I said, weird.

Well, consider it done now. Oh well.
Yesterday we watched the Simpsons (actually an ok episode ... I don't usually enjoy those cartoons much, sorry to those that do, but stuff like Red Dwarf is heaps cooler) in English in preparation for the essay I was supposed to do in class today. But I had a bad hypo and not much sugar with me so I got the day off. It also meant I get a couple more days to learn my lines for drama :) I'm hopeless at remembering lines. I'd much prefer to do an impromptu act. Especially since this play we are doing is stupid. It's called Dags. That's how daggy it is :)
At least I got the day off for legit reasons, cos a hypo is a medical emergency :) Thats an awesome thing about hypos. But the only other awesome things about them is that u get to eat sugar and that some people get hallucinations when they have a hypo. I haven't, but I really want to :) Be fun. Much more fun than feeling fully drained of energy without even done some exercise. That part is horrid.
Ah yes, still going on with diabetes. I know. But it takes up a huge amount of my life, as can be imagined.
Hey, did yas know that Nick Jonas has diabetes?
I rekon that's awesome. But most people disagree. I guess most people don't have diabetes (type 1 ...) anyway.
Holidays so close! YAY! Let's hear it for the holidays!
I usually end up getting bored by the end of the first week of holidays, but it doesn't mean I don't look forward to them.
That was a stupid sentence. One negative is bad enough, but that's a double. Ugh.
Other things I hate include being too young for something you really wanna do - and you are only a week or two too young for it! And THEN you find out that someone else who is too young for it GETS TO GO.
How unfair is that?
Oh well ... (which is something I'm saying too often these days ...)
Good things include having diabetes when it means you get to go to the Gold Coast with other diabetics and hang out and go to places like Dreamworld and Movieworld and surfware outlets (surfwear is actually one of the highest on my 'clothes I like' list which is pretty short) ...
Looks like today is ranting on about good things and bad things, so *types in title*.
I'm listening to Lacrymosa by Evanescence at the mo. It used to spook me out cos of the music. If you heard it you'd understannd :)
Byebye Earthlings *evil cackle*

today is officially bad grammar day.
oh yeah does anyone know about that large hadron collider? they turned it on. apparently there was a chance it couldve blown up the world. why on earth does anyone make something that could blow up the world?!
i had a hockey gala day on wednesday and my team owned every other team there. and now we get medals, but we gotta wait til assembly. the guys team didnt do as well. just proves that girls are better than guys :)
well todays is short. dont have that much time.

Today i have scheduled ... a rave on diabetes. :)
Yah, diabetes ... Well there is two types, named most originally as Type 1 and Type 2. In both types you don't get enough of the hormone insulin, which allows glucose to get into your body's cells. Sorta like a key as everyone keeps saying.
In Type 1 the cells that create insulin, whuch are in the pancreas, are destroyed by the immune system cos something made the immune system think they were foreign or something. So people with that type have to get insulin from an outside source - generally by injecting it. Yes folks, needles galore, 1-7 times a day, depending on what your doctor says is best for u.
Type 2 is just when the body is resistant to insulin. Usually obese and pregnant people get it, and not everyone does. It's curable, unlike Type 1. You just get medication and diet and exercise stuff.
There, rave over. *Phew*. Enjoy?
Omigosh youse all have to see this. Click on the link. It's Gev! He is so awesome. Even with a show like that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoGpKzXKYO0
The Saints got totally flogged by Geelong, the poor team. Geelong is too good. Apparently they've only lost one game so far.
Haha, the Knights (this is rugby now) also got totally flogged by the Broncos. Go the Broncos! Sorry to all Newcastle Knights fans. And yes I know, city-wise I'm not patriotic at all.
I started reading Jane Eyre today. My first classic since Little Women :) I haven't read too many classics, as they're all either really tragic or really fairytaley or both. I hate Good Wives. That's actually probably what put me off reading classics.
Off to do an assessment task ...

I got a new MP3 player yesterday. I've needed a new one for quite a while - my old one was running out of room. Now I have a really good one, a 4 gig iriver E100. It plays songs obviously but it also plays videos and pictures. It has expandable memory too.
My sisters and my dad also got MP3 players, but theirs aren't as good as mine :) In my opinion anyway. I'm sure they all think they got the better end of the deal.
Ah, today was Father's Day. My school didn't have a stall, so Mum and I got something for Dad together. It was a 2L bootle of Lift, some Toblerone and Turkish Delight and the movie Sahara. I'm sure he loved all the sweet stuff - he loves it to begin with and in a house with two diabetics you don't get sweet stuff too often.
Ya, I'm a type 1 diabetic. It's horrid :) But I'll live :)
Mum's type 2.
My sisters got Dad some random stuff.
I sat down with Mum and Dad and discussed electives. I've decided on sport science, visual art and visual design. I'm fine with that. Except I would've liked to do German, but you can only choose three ...
Hmm, I haven't said much about my family ... well, I've got a mum, dad and two sisters, Katherine and Emily. my sisters are both are younger than me. Kate's 12 and Em's 8. Their birthdays are either side of Anzac Day. My mum's birthday is the same as Bella Swan's (from Twilight) and Dad's is a month and a day after mine.
Easy birthdays to remember. Mine's the hardest. The past two birthdays I've woken up and forgotten it was my birthday. Now that is something to worry about ...
Hockey wasn't on Friday night. Must have been because it was so rainy and windy. So now the semfinal has been postponed ... i don't like that. get it over and done with! My team is probably gonna lose anyway!
Ok, I think I've finished raving for the day. Tho, I would like to rave about my new MP3 player, but that would bore the socks of anyone.

I'm getting 'Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox' either later today or sometime tomorrow!!! Yay! I've been waiting AGES for it to come out and read it! So I can't wait much longer.
The Artemis Fowl series is funny. But so sad Root dies. He is hilarious. And so much better than the next LEPrecon commander.
It sounds like SUCH a good book ...
I have a meeting about electives and stuff tonight. My school doesn't let you do your own electives until Yr 9, and I'm in Yr 8. Then we do our electives for the next two years, except for one which only runs for one year, then we have to do a computer course in its place. In all, we get three electives.
My electives are probably gonna be sport science, visual design and visual art. But I'm also considering music.
The sport science course sounds really good. There are sports like softcross, scuba diving, hockey ... And you also can get coaching, reffing and umpiring certificates. So, cool.
My thunb is slowly but surely healing up from that whack it got. But it's still covered in bruises :)
Nice and colourful.
Stupid computer speakers keep playing up. They don't listen when I tell them to work properly! Stupid speakers ...
Today was awesome. At school I was on office duty. Which means no work :) That's the way school should be :)
The most work I had to do was carry an overflowing recycling tub to the bin.
"I want it now, I want it now! Give me your heart and your sou-oul. I'm breaking out, I'm breking out ... "
Good song. 'Hysteria'.
Oh ya, thanks to all who voted on the poll!
It was: If you were offered a million dollars, would you ... 1) take it and run; 2) demand more; 3) blatantly refuse, or 4) take it and IMMEDIATELY spend it on the most useless thing EVA.
Well, 1 won, then came 4, 2 and 3 got no votes (pretty obviously ...). I think i woulda gone 4. I'm sorta like that :)
Do svadanya, drugi i padrugi!

I also read another awesome book. It's called Golden.
Friday night i got hit hard on the thumb with a hockey stick. Now my whole hand around the thumb as well as the thumb itself is coated in bruises. Nice and colourful :). I can't do much with my hand tho, cos it does hurt and I can't bend it properly.
Good news tho: my hockey team won the game (FINALLY, a game we've won!) so we now have a semifinal this week!
I lost my soccer semifinal on Saturday so outta soccer til next year. A bit disappointing, lemme tell ya. I luv soccer.
This book I'm reading at the mo, Losing It, is a little strange. Maybe cos it's written by a Kiwi :).
But probably also cos the author hasn't really chosen the best personality for her characters ...? I dunno, it's hard to explain.
Well I'm disappointed - MAJORLY disappointed - in Collingwood to losing to Fremantle. Losing to Fremantle is pretty much impossible ...
Oh well. At least the Olympics aren't still on, or I'd be ranting and raving about the soccer hockey and handball. And absolutely hating countries for beating other ones :)
Muse is awesome.
Tho when I started listening to them I was thinking, these guys r weird. But I'm like that: I'll say one thing and the next day I'll say something completely opposite. Little Miss Keeps-Changing-Her-Mind, that's me a lot of the time :)
Neways, I'm off to put some Muse songs on my MP3 and do some work.

or email Cloudisminquiries@hotmail.com
if they actually work. Cos I seriously doubt this thing - after all, I know one of the people who created it.
In Art we're doing Visual Puns. I'm doing an artwork about a holy cow. A friend is doing apple crumble (i'd mentioned it and she wanted to do it). More people are doing super star, bullfrog, horseshoe, serial killer (it's actually quite popular, mostly among the population of violent boys in my class) ... We are also doing stuff on Mambo, so we have to use that style, and we're also creationg a paper mache crature inspired by Mambo artwork.
Ok, if we want competitions, here's one: name a really good visual pun.
Fremantle and Collingwood are battling tonight. At least, Freo will be battling to gain some dignity. I mean, look at how many games they've lost this season! I reckon they'll lose. I also want them to lose cos if they win Caitlin's gonna be talking nonstop about it for the next week or so. It's painful :).
Soz Caits if u r reading this. Please don't kill me!
Well they r playing tonight so I guess I'll find out who wins soon ...

Well today in the drama room there was a large board thing up where u can tack stuff onto it. It was covered in all this stuff about saving Tibetan culture and ending Chinese censorship. I was thinking, "why the hell is this up in the drama room and what the heck is it on about anyway?". Cos I haven't heard of Tibetan culture being 'endangered' (in fact I hardly eva hear of Tibet) and never hearda censorship in China.
It seems like I here of a lot of political stuff nowadays. Like all this stuff on China (cos of the Olympics) and communism and wars about territory and independence and stuff. And I've been thinking "what's it got to do with me? And why is it all over the place NOW?" That sorta stuff.
I guess most people would point out how countries and all are lifting their borders and jabber on about globalisation and all. i say stuff that - cos a lot of this stuff doesn't seem to affect me at all, like that war in South Ossetia.
I'm confusing myself more, so I betta stop.
English at the mo is just analysing the humour in comics and cartoons. Easy, AND fun. But you don't get that often in any subject really, not just English.
"And six feet underwater and now I, now I do ..."
Just a random song line. Get used to them - I do that sorta thing a lot, especially in my diary.
I s'pose dat's all for today. Everyone get their educational fix?
Soz about it if ya didn like it.
Tuesday, August 26, 2008
Today's one was actually pretty awesome. This band came in, Purified Testimony, and they performed a couple of their songs. It's a real shame they weren't a rock group (their style was rap/hip hop).
I'm listening to some Muse songs at the mo. They're an OK band, but sound a little strange live (lead's voice is high-pitched, for a guy). They're one of my friend's fave bands.
"You are a natural disaster ..."
We had to say what our fave band was in German today. Mine's easy. Meine Lieblingsband ist The Living End. Es ist SEHR cool!
For those of you who took French or Indonesian instead of German, you sad sad people, GET A DICTIONARY AND LOOK IT UP!
I like the music style of the Offspring. Nice hard stuff, and also really catchy.
A REALLY strange band is Placebo. If you've ever heard any of their songs, you'd know.
As you can tell, I'm raving about music today. Nothing better to do ...
But it is getting a little repetitive ...
See ya, "random stalkers"
Monday, August 25, 2008
A happy thought for today tho: my soccer team is third on the ladder at the mo! That means we're in the semifinals or whateva it's called. :) On the way to first :)
Has anyone heard 'Calypso' by Spiderbait? I luv it :)
"Sunshine on the window makes me happy like I should be
Outside all around me really sleazy then it hits me
Don't tell me ..."
If you've seen '10 Things I Hate About You' then you'll have heard it.
I had to watch that movie for English once, and write an essay on it. Talk about torture. And then the rest of my family gets obsessed with it and buy it and watch at least once a week ...
Another awesome song is THE LIVING END's cover of 'the Rising Sun'. The original is by Cold Chisel and tho it's ok TLE's version is so cool.
THE LIVING END! Oh they can make any song good ... They are AWESOME ...
Sorry guys. I guess I should stop raving now. :)
"Meanwhile in the moonlight purple people ..."
Purple people. Paints a good picture, huh.
Saturday, August 23, 2008
Of course, I would raving about how cool it was that they got gold if Mia Hamm was playing. But she retired sometime after the Athens Olympics, so ...
But seriously, she is AWESOME. She's done a lot for women in sport and also given a lot of money for bone marrow research. Thatta girl Mia.
Has everyone heard the song White Noise? It's done by my fave eva band, the Living End. U gotta luv em :)
Their awesome new album came out a little while ago. It's well worth listening to. I luv it.
The women's hockey finals stuff was neva broadcasted. That's stupid in my opinion. Nothing I can do about it tho. Oh well ...
On a lighter note, my soccer team beat another today, so we're in the semifinals (or whicheva it is). We're a cool team, we're doing so well after two new additions to the team (me and someone else) and going up a full two grades.
HOPEFULLY I get Breaking Dawn tomozza. My aunt is reading it SLOWLY ... And the library is still ordering them in, I think.
I'm also waiting on the new Artemis Fowl book. Which is coming from the library at some point or another. It sounds really good, with Artemis Fowl up against himself, and now with two annoyances in the form of TWIN SIBLINGS, and Minerva absolutely IDOLISING him ...
Soz for the spoilers, peeps ...

I'm also annoyed cos Japan couldn't keep their lead (women's soccer, of course) in the half of their match I was watching. I'll watch the other half sometime soon, I taped it. Brazil beat Germany, also annoying (have I mentioned how I hate Brazil since they beat Norway?) ...
So it looks like it'll be a Brazil vs USA final. But I hope not. I guess I'll find out sometime.
Once again, thanks to all who've been reading so far, this thing is so YOUNG!
NO, I am NOT thinking of it as a kid (a.n.y.m.o.r.e.).
Most peeps @ skool are watching the gymnastics. Um, WHY is what I'd like to know. I don't get gymnastics. Never have, never will.
Though when I had to do it for skool I loved bouncing on the trampoline. Then when I went to a proper place, I loved the huge tramps and the foam pit. But that's it. I simply can't understand it as a competition, or a sport.
Nothing much left to say, really, except for that I'm STILL waiting on Breaking Dawn and that my aunt who promised to give it to me, well her life is in jeopardy so she'd better watch out. ;) lol.

My Maths teacher is strange. She can be really helpful sometimes, really cross sometimes and really weird (as in in a pretending-to-be-a-Martian type way) at others.
I've missed out on SO much with the Olympics. I NEED to find out who won in the Japan vs USA women's soccer quarterfinal. And whether the Hockeyroos are still in (they BETTER be!).
For those Inside-A-Doggers, Steven Herrick is now the Writer in Residence! He is an awesome writer. He is also awesome cos he likes soccer.
For those who wanna check that stuff out, there's a link to Inside A Dog from this page SOMEWHERE. It's a cool Aussie teen book website, where they have news and authors blogging and reviews and stuff.
Check out the Twilight vid on it too. Hilarious!
Homework calls, and I must answer (eventually).
Friday, August 15, 2008
I was watching them play Thursday night. Poor South Africa.
And how fit they are! Apparently they can get at least 14 on the beep test. LEGENDARY.
The European handball was interesting. Watch some if you can.
I ABHOR the equestrian competitions. It cut into ten minutes of the Hockeyroos match. Not happy.
The women's football (soccer, whatever) Japan team is AWESOME too. They were playing China last night. China played really well, but they were splattered across the field. Japan is another whole league.
It was a really good game, extremely fast and all. Those Japanese are FAST! They had the ball most of the time, even thought the Chinese towered over them.
I was really annoyed at the Brazil v Norway women's soccer game. I wanted Norway to win, but they only started playing well towards the end of the match.
The Olympics are pretty much the only exciting thing on at the mo, and even then ...
So I've been getting bored.
And my remedies for the agonising condition for boredom aren't working.
Any ideas, anyone?
I'm done here, I guess. Bye.
(PS. THE HOCKEYROOS ARE AWESOME!)
(PPS. The time thing on the bottom STILL isn't working and it's SUPPOSED to be the right time zone ...)
