Brainless Banter

A LOOOOOONG assembly was held today, where we got our school reports and some awards. And we also got given a lecture once AGAIN on how to sing the school song 'properly'. Funny, before the current principal came around, no-one cared about the cymbal-clash part and we most certainly didn't get stern tellings-off for it. But anyway, was totally worth it. XD

Ugh STILL doing work - it's the END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR ALREADY. No need for work cos we have TWO DAYS LEFT. And a lot of the teachers are missing anyway! SO NO NEED FOR WORK!
Especially quizzes about refugees. I mean, BORING. But it was funny discussing with Puzzle what could happen if we let all the refugees into Australia without detaining and checking them out first. Like, major political / civil / international unrest, much worse economy / unemployment rates / homelessness rates / crime rates, etc ...
We totally got into it and Australia ended up being invaded by America. I can't exactly remember how we got there, but we did.

So anyway, holidays very soon. And I actually have stuff planned that will most likely go into motion, unlike every other holiday plan I've had. Lol. But first off my grandma will want me to finish off that quilt ... :( So sick of it right now. Sewing machines and pins don't like me. And the feeling is pretty mutual.

Have yet ANOTHER budgie - there are now FIVE budgie residents in the house. And I'm taking care of TWO now cos our latest one is sick. He has chlamidophila. If you really want to know what that is, look it up. I'm sick of it already.
But it's sorta cool having two budgies in my room now. Except for all the extra cleaning and maintenance and when they fight.

One last hockey game this Friday, and then I have to wait for next year sometime for Winter season. Which will be totally awesome cos it's back to serious competition, training, teams ... ahhhh. I've missed that, getting stuck with the U/15s and not playing actual proper hockey with people I know and all have good skill. Not just one or two but ALL.
So looking forward to that.

Oh yeah - thanks to Stuchy who reminded me of 30 Seconds to Mars' new CD. Totally need to get that.

It's 11 days til Christmas ... SCARY. All looking forward to it?

(Not) Dead - O_O Don't tell me I'm undead plz!

O-kizay folks.
(Cough, splutter, cough).
FINE THEN. Hello everyone, and today on the show -
I give up. Just pretend I had a really cool greeting ok? Lol.

Yay, yearlies and all over, now it's just the wait for the end of the year. And reports too, I guess, if you REALLY need those oldies to tell ya how "well" you can do [insert coughing fit here].

Argh I hate this headache and feeling sick. But even worse is watching footage post-Hiroshima-bombing. It really makes you hate whoever was American President at the time (I THINK it was Truman but I'm not sure). Worse yet, after they's seen what had happened, they let loose an even STRONGER bomb on Nagasaki.
If you really ARE pro-nuclear weaponry, take a look at that footage. It made me wanna throw up, seeing what radiation can do. People were literally falling apart at the seams - skin, hair, body parts coming off ... and it happened to everyone. Not just the soldiers. The non-combatants ... their women and children ... it was totally against the rules of war, whether written or not, I don't care.

Sigh.

Anyway, it'd be funny to think that the song "Evacuate the Dance Floor" is so big here if you hadn't heard it. Cos usually foreign songs don't make it big here, unless of course it's from the UK or USA. But Cascada is GERMAN. I'm serious. But what's annoying me NOW is that totally awesome songs from other countries haven't made it big here. Oh sure, ABBA and Roxette were Swedish, The Rasmus are Finnish, etc ... But have you heard of people like Marit Larsen?

Another sigh.

Anyway, I should stop making a big deal out of small things like that and make more of a deal about stuff like the one before. Just to make sure people don't make the same mistake over and over again.

If anyone's read a Sarah Dessen book, did you like it? Cos her books look good, I just have yet to read them XD

I think we can all relate to this song in some way. Cos we're not all perfect and there are times were we just sit and wait for better days, or try to find reasons and meanings and ways to make it better.
Here it is:
The Rasmus - In The Shadows
No sleep
No sleep until I am done with finding the answer
Won't stop
Won't stop before I find a cure for this cancer
Sometimes
I feel I going down and so disconnected
Somehow
I know that I am haunted to be wanted

I've been watching
I've been waiting
In the shadows all my time
I've been searching
I've been living
For tomorrows all my life

In the shadows

In the shadows

They say
That i must learn to kill before i can feel safe
But I
I rather kill myself then turn into their slave
Sometimes
I feel that I should go and play with the thunder
Somehow
I just don't wanna stay and wait for a wonder

I've been watching
I've been waiting
In the shadows all my time
I've been searching
I've been living
For tomorrows all my life

Lately I been walking walking in circles, watching waiting for something
Feel me touch me heal me, come take me higher

I've been watching
I've been waiting
In the shadows all my time
I've been searching
I've been living
For tomorrows all my life
I've been watching
I've been waiting
I've been searching
I've been living for tomorrows

In the shadows

In the shadows
I've been waiting

What do you get if you cross onion and baked beans? Tear gas!

LOL

Oh, yum ... fresh cinnamon muffins are the BEST.

Yearlies this week. Why?
And then after yearlies, there'll be like, nothing to do for some subjects. So school is gonna go from overloaded with work and stress to overloaded with boredom, people incessantly talking to each other and lack of work.
Fun.

I think the budgies are moulting now - there are feathers EVERYWHERE. Which is fine, so long as they don't get in my bags or my bed or my mouth. Lol.
Something which annoys me about birds is that they poo ANYWHERE. Like on you, for example. But the thing is, they've pooed on me FIVE TIMES and no-one else in my family has gotten pooed on. GRRRRRRR. And so they all laugh at me.
Oh sure, it's funny - AFTER you've washed it all out.
Lol.

It's so funny how listening to different types of music can make a situation feel so different (or at least, how you feel about the situation). Like, play some real upbeat music and you'll feel invincible, or whatever.

I got a new phone on Thursday, a pretty cool one too. Even though it's a Nokia (I WAY prefer the Sony Ericsson programming - my previous phone was SE). I liked my old phone though! But it's buttons were going funny - you had to press them a million times before they decided to work.

So anyway, I better quit now, I'm really just mindlessly typing words on the screen (I was goona say putting random words to paper, lol, but ew, what a cliche!).
Bye!

Listening to incessant chirping ... lol

Well I'm (not) dead.
LOL

I have a job!!!!!!
MONEY!!!!!!
For telling lil U/13s what to do!
Lol, I'm doing hockey umpiring for lil kids. And getting money for it (... I think ... lol). Cool deal.
I haven't started yet but I will this week - someone's got to email me the times they're playing and stuff.
But yeah, coolios. And plus if I stuff up it won't matter too much cos
1) Summer comp is not anywhere NEAR as important as Winter comp - in the summer we only play so the hockey fields don't get permanently closed and we don't have to play on grass fields
2) This comp is abnormally short as they're stopping it short to re-turf the fields
3) It's only lil kids
Soooooo looking forward to it.

It's only a few days til my birthday. Not like I'm counting or anything.
Lol. The last few years I've woken up and gone about the day without remembering it's my birthday ... until someone goes "BIRTHDAY GIRL!!!!!!!!!" Do any of yas know how ANNOYING little sisters get??????
I think I know what my prezzies are. Even though my mum refuses to show me. Grrr.

School's back ... Ergh. And we're pretty much all cramming cos of yearlies soon. And assignments are getting done. So what on Earth will we be doing for the WEEKS that we aren't doing any work? Seriously, it's gonna get boring.
Not the best of terms, in my opinion.

Lol, the holidays ... I didn't do much, except for a camp in Gloucester, but let me tell you, when it's pouring and your tent waterproofing has given up, it gets very interesting ...

Oh and I'm going on an insulin pump at some point or another. The needle ratio is 15:1. I'm having heaps less needles. Plus if there's heapsa sugar around (which there has been the past few days ... ) it's a lot easier to handle.

The school laptops are pretty cool. And I am soooooo in love with that program, OneNote. What a great thing.

Well that's all for now. See yas!

Another thing that worked like HG Wells' radio production of some story

Well today Earth got invaded by Martians and they started terraforming the planet.
LOL
Actually it was just a freak dust storm. NO aliens, NO attack from Middle Eastern etc countries, NO end of the world. Jeez.
Anyway, thank you peoples who live around Lake Eyre for donating such a marvellous colour this morning. (Apparently the red colour was cos there's heapsa iron in the dust and it was soaking up all the blue of the spectrum ... therefore leaving a lot of reddy stuff for us to look at. No I didn't already know this, I went onto the Sydney Morning Herald site).
For those people who stayed at home cos they were scared, or think it's the end of the world - you SAD people.
Oh yeah - beware QLDers - apparently it's heading for yas now.

On another note, when I was on that SMH website, I found out that the ozone hole is shrinking (yay!) and that some woman stabbed her two daughters to death (about 30 stabs per girl).
What a sick, twisted, awful, horrifying woman. Damn right am I glad she's in jail til she's 72. And that she's not my mother.

We get our laptops next Thursday, apparently. FINALLY. And Warners Bay High has had them for like, FOREVER.

Did you know that walruses - Nah just kidding. (You'll only get it if you've seen 50 First Date)

See yas. Cos you know, the world hasn't ended?

Yr 9 laptops are taking their time getting to their rightful owners

Hey all

Lol, aren't game cheat codes fun? We have a few games with cheat codes. And for some of them, there's a code that will kill ya, no matter what. Lol.

:( Warners Bay High has their laptops. I WANT MY LAPTOP! Lol. Mostly I just don't wanna be left hanging, what with NO-ONE knowing when we'll be getting them.
This sub VA teacher yesterday went on about the pros and cons of them. Ugh, art has been so dull. We're not doing much interesting stuff. I want to learn how to do stuff I want to, not just do all things random.

Actually, science is really dull atm too. Making circuits. YAWN.
My favourite subject at the moment ... would actually be Maths. ARGH.

Well ... the two hockey teams I played for lost their semis last night, but my field team might still be in it - we're playing in another semi next week. Hopefully we win and totally smash Central West in the grand final, like we shoulda done last night. Instead, we were drawing 1-1 all through overtime, until the VERY last minute we'd be allowed ... when they scored :(
But I DO like my new stick :) Amart at Glendale is closing down and all hockey stuff was half-price, so Dad bought me a nice new compound stick, instead of the usual easily-dented wood sticks.

This coming Wednesday is rego day for summer comp Ultimate Frisbee near the netball courts at Newcastle Sportsground, if anyone's interested. Not sure what time, but I do know they train at a little past 7pm.

Anyways, see yas all later.

"Science is golden"

Long time, no see.
Cos there's absolutely nothing to write about. NOTHING!
Well, almost.

Muse and Paramore's new albums come out this month. Muse's is in just a few days, Paramore's is at the end of the month. I've heard both bands' latest singles, and they're definitely ... growing. Not changed all that much, but growing.
Oh and I found the Living End's rarity CD. Unfortunately for me it comes with the 'collectors edition' of White Noise ... I already have White Noise so there's pretty much no point in getting it. :(

I've been enjoying the new science topic, what with stuff I know heaps about. What really has been annoying me is that the teacher REALLY doesn't know how to explain some things ...

Oh, and there are FOUR types of diabetes - Type 1 diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes mellitus, MODY (mature onset diabetes in the young - a 'mellitus' type and so far has 9 subtypes) and diabetes insipidus (which concerns totally different processes etc to the others).
Just to show off.
Pah. It's only cos I get so annoyed when people just say diabetes. It's FAR too general.
And I only found out about MODY cos I was researching something for science, and insipidus cos I was flicking through a bio dictionary Dad had shown me.

See yas.

Daily dosage of randomness, but at least it's useful

Huh. For those lactose intolerant peoples out there, you can get tablets with lactase enzymes in them. Which means, basically, you can have milk and other dairy products without feeling sick.
But personally, I'd just prefer to stay away fom lactose. I don't relish the thought of having a tablet pretty much every time I wanna have some milk or icecream or a fair bit of chocolate or whatever. And also, the proper stuff is mint. Another deterrant. Yes, the KID'S stuff is strawberry, but ...
What lactose intolerance is, is simply that the body can't break down and therefore use lactose. So the lactose is in there, doing nothing, and the body doesn't like that. So you feel sick. What the tablets do is introduce a source enzymes capable of breaking the lactose down so it is usable.
That's the technical side of the matter. Lol.

What I hate about all this new medical stuff, actually pretty much ANY medical stuff, is that people seem to try and force it on you. And that's one thing I hate - people trying to override my control of myself. Which, to think of it, may be why I get into trouble most of the time. Lol.

The holidays are progressing ... with me still sick - coughing a fair bit and still going through plenty of tissues. But ... I do have my voice back!!!!!! XD

You people that have read the Artemis Fowl books know that there are those code things at the bottom of each page. Well, decoding the fairy and centaur ones was easy, hardly anything to it. I'd been at a loss on the one in 'The Eternity Code' for ages ... until I looked at the dedication page!!!
Hehehehe ... lol.
So I'm partway through that one. But this one looks like the most boring message in all of them. Oh well.

My sister has the first two 'High School Musical' dvds ... but you know what? I STILL haven't seen more than half of them. Yay for me! Resisting the evil. Lol.

You know what's also evil? The controls in the Xbox 'Star Trek' game. Thanks to them, I can't get past the first level, and my dad finished the game ages ago. So him and me are tied for the amount of Xbox games we've finished. :(
Yeah, there's this game, 'MechAssault 2', that I've finished and no-one else has. It's an easyish level, but it really does your hand in in the end. So I still have bragging rights for that game ...

I think that's just about the amout of random stuff I have in store for you guys today. See yas!

OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!!!!

Lol.

It's HOLIDAYS people ... where you can do pretty much whatever you want 'within reason'. Unfortunately I don't have much reason ... lol.
And I'm still a bit sick!!!!! It's not fair!!!!! But I'm happy to announce I can shout - my voice is back!!!!! :)

Not much happening atm. Just time at home, really, when I can't escape (lol).

Awesome song: Heads Will Roll - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Off with your head
Dance until you're dead
Heads will roll
On the floor

Glitter on the wet streets
Silver over everything
The river's all wet
You're all cold

Dripping with alchemy
Shiver stop shivering
The glitter's all wet
You're all chrome

The men cry out
Girls cry out
The men cry out
Oh no

Off with your head
Dance until you're dead
Heads will roll
On the floor

Looking glass
Take the past
Shut your eyes
You realize

Glitter on the wet streets
Silver over everything
The glitter's all wet
You're all chrome

Off with your head
Dance until you're dead
Off with your head
Dance until you're dead
Off with your head
Dance until you're dead

What the world needs ... is more ME!

Ok. The world needs:
  • Less Michael Jackson mania. Seriously. Come on peoples, heaps of people die every single day, and what makes one life so much more important than them? I thought every life was equal here ...
  • More classics. So I can read them. And have access to them. I really wanna read Wuthering Heights but my library doesn't have it! How weird (and stupid) is that?
  • "A little less talk, a little more action, please". Come on. Stimulate the economy already. Dramatically reduce carbon emissions already. Make peace already. Stop making so many nuclear warheads and using them already. Put more money into medicine and education and research already!
  • More lols. Cos laughing means you're happy and having fun. It's not always so hard to do, peoples! Just a little effort, please!
  • More acceptance and forgiveness. That's the only way anyone's ever gonna get along with each other, seriously, and you all know it. And plus, it's just SAD if you can't accept or forgive someone cos of one tiny thing. An example: my grandfather knew a Polish guy who, if was given a gun an told that someone in front of them was German, would shoot them, no questions asked. And WWII ended years and years ago.
Well that's just some, my Top 5 for now. I could put up some more if I get any really good ones.

See yas,

Camp flu by (hehe)

Well ... I ALMOST made it to one month!
Sorry guys. Busy here. And sick too! I officially hate the flu.

So ... school camp ... Obviously it could've been better. Like maybe more carrot at mealtimes? Seriously, please? I want carrot more than ONCE in three days.
Plus it would've been nicer if I hadn't had the flu, then I would've been able to do more instead of sit out of two day activities and all the night ones.
And if I hadn't fallen out of the canoe before I'd gotten in it properly. (Mot, just so you know, I don't blame you, I blame the stupid canoe and those stupid poles and the instructor not telling people how to hold the canoes)
And we could've also duct-taped Motormouth's mouth.
But apart from that, camp was pretty awesome.
Sailing, especially. It was nice and calm and I had a partner whom I didn't know well, so there was yet another excuse not to talk much, apart from the fact I didn't have much of a voice. (Just lol-ing at my voice here - it was hilarious).
Canoeing was good once I'd gotten IN a canoe and had calmed down a bit (thanx heaps to Puzzle here! and everyone else who was concerned). We played stuck-in-the-mud and I loved it.
Giant Swing and Dual Flying Fox were a little bit of a let-down, but they were still heaps good. And Puzzle went to the top of the Giant Swing! I'm pretty sure we're all still cheering about that. Stuchy got to go on it too, however difficult it was - I'm cheering for that one as well. It's not exactly the easiest thing when suddenly you lose the use of a limb.
I'm sure a few secrets came out on camp too ... hehehehe ... but don't they always? There's something about camps that do that.

So ... cos of camp and the flu I've missed out on at least three hockey games. Have I said yet how much I hate the flu?

Home's been good - I've been able to get along really well with my sisters lately, it's been awesome. Seriously. Maybe you's all should try it one day.

Not much has been happening ... just school, as per usual ... At least the holidays are creeping up, 11 straight weeks of school can get hard to deal with. And then you hear that QLD is already in holidays ... same with pretty much everywhere in Australia ... You really wonder sometimes why you live in NSW, you really do.

Til next time,

PUBLIC HOLIDAY TODAY!!!!! XD

Awwww some little kids are sooooooo cute!
My aunt, uncle and two of my cousins were up here yesty and today. One of my cousins isn't yet 1, I think (not sure!!!! XD). She was attempting to eat the grass and sticks and stuff but she didn't like the sticks much, lol. And the other cuz, he's not yet 3 (but once again I'm not sure ...) and he was kicking a soccer ball around.
They were both soooooo cute to watch!

Half yearlies start tomorrow ... EEEEEK

Hehehehe, at the camp I went to at Easter, someone managed to get a photo of me ... fixing up my insulin. Lovely. Great photo - a needle.
Thankfully it wasn't in the foreground though. A couple of my friends were.

I love the Muse version of Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You. It's AWESOME.
You can listen to it here, if ya want.

The best EVER Red Dwarf episode is on TV tonight. I LOVE it, it's totally HILARIOUS. Trust me. 8 pm on ABC2, if you are interested.

Well ... I'm glad today's a public holiday. Makes things a bit easier.

Zazhigai!!!!!!! (Russian for "rock on", lol)

Michael Leunig is a genius.
Just in case you didn't know.

Lol, I started reading Pride and Prejudice today. And I'm over two-thirds finished!!!!!!
I've tried reading it twice before, but it never really interested me. However, now I find it funny. And am enjoying reading it.
I've been trying to get my hands on Wuthering Heights, but I haven't managed to find it ... which is rather strange, it being such a classic and all.

The other night I was asked to play goalie for one of the A-grade hockey teams in my club. I tell ya, I was pretty freaked. I thought I was gonna get hammered and let heapsa goals in.
I needn't have worried - I didn't have to save anything.
Which means I've only ever had to touch the ball ONCE. But at least I haven't let any through!
Oh, and Nat - most of you Frightened Mice should know her, she's one of the Refined Young Ladies - gave me my first proper goalie coaching session. FIRST. Far out! But it was good =]

Ugh, half-yearlies next week ... it's not fair that we have so many tests next week. At least two per day.

Here's a sweet song (by a band so many more people like now! It's awesome! But if only they'd listen to more of the band's songs ... ) :
Endlessly - Muse
There's a part of me you'll never know
The only thing I'll never show

Hopelessly I'll love you endlessly
Hopelessly I'll give you everything
But I won't give you up
I won't let you down
And I won't leave you falling
If the moment ever comes

It's plain to see it's trying to speak
Cherished dreams forever asleep

Hopelessly I'll love you endlessly
Hopelessly I'll give you everything
But I won't give you up
I won't let you down
And I won't leave you falling
If the moment ever comes

Hopelessly I'll love you endlessly
Hopelessly I'll give you everything
But I won't give you up
I won't let you down
And I won't leave you falling
But the moment never comes

Music ...

I went to Latham's music today ... and they were having a sale ... with heapsa music books ...
GOOD ones too.
Thing is, even with a sale they were still pretty expensive and I liked a number of them I liked ...
In the end I got one. I just COULDN'T go past it. So I now have ...
*insert drum roll here*
A PARAMORE PVG MUSIC BOOK!!!!!!
With my favourite song too, 'Hallelujah'.
Well, I totally scored there. Shame I couldn't get the Evanescence and Muse and Twilight soundtrack ones too. :(

Last night I went to a dance that my church held. People from all over the Central Coast / Hunter area went. It was awesome. Some good music too - almost half "oldies" stuff :)

And now I'll have some of Lily's music composition ... Ugh I really need to get into that, but I can't do pop. Oh well ... I'll get it done.

Hallelujah - Paramore
Somehow everything's gonna fall right into place,
If we only had a way to make it all fall faster everyday.
If only time flew like a dove,
Make it fly faster than I'm falling in love.

This time we're not giving up,
Let's make it last forever,
Screaming "Hallelujah".
We'll make it last forever.

Holding onto patience, wearing thin,
I can't force these eyes to see the end.
If only time flew like a dove,
Well we could watch it fly, and just keep looking up.

This time we're not giving up,
Let's make it last forever,
Screaming "Hallelujah".
We'll make it last forever.

And we've got time on our hands.
[And we've got time]
Got nothing but time on our hands.
Got nothing but, got nothing but.
[And we've got time]
Got nothing but time on our hands.

This time we're not giving up,
Oh, let's make it last forever,
Screaming "Hallelujah".
"Hallelujah".
And here it is on YouTube

Different types of bonds ...

I am soooooo happy right now!!!!!
Well, the movie Twilight has an awesome soundtrack - with TWO Paramore songs.
And I got it, I got it, I got it!!!!
*singing and dancing*

And I've FINALLY gotten to see the music video for a Muse song.

In science today, we FINALLY moved off the topic of ionic and covalent bonds ... to look at OTHER bonds. Some of which didn't really make sense. Like the metal-metal bond - the teacher said it was like a cross between a covalent and an ionic bond AND THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE COS THEY ARE SO DIFFERENT!!!!
I'll just ask my dad, I guess.

Anyway ... another good song:
Don't Give Up - Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Shannon Noll
In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
But no-one wants you when you lose

Don't give up
‘Cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not beaten yet
Don't give up
I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around
Never thought that I could be affected
Thought that we'd be last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up
We don't need much of anything
Don't give up
‘Cause somewhere there's a place
Where we belong

Rest your head
You worry too much
It's going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don't give up
Please don't give up

Got to walk out of here
I can't take any more
Going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That river's flowing
That river's flowing

Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs

Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up now
We're proud of who you are
Don't give up
You know its never been easy
Don't give up
‘Cause I believe there's a place
There's a place where we belong

Apparently half-yearlies in a few weeks

It's not sinking in that we have half-yearlies soon. It's just been going too fast, and we don't seem to have learnt enough for them.
Nevertheless, some of my teachers are going into full panic mode about them (ie telling us what's in them, what to revise, how to write an essay, etc). And some of my friends have gone into full study mode. I'm gonna start hitting the books soon too. When I can stop dozing off. So tired lately ...

Anyway, I finished that book, Fate, today. It was SO AWESOME. And then I gave it to Puzzle, cos if I didn't she'd be in agony. She likes Jennifer Lynn Barnes' books too. And I was totally tormenting her about it, so it was only fair.
Now I can't wait to get it back tomorrow to read it AGAIN. YAY!

Here's a nice song for yas all
Crash and Burn - Savage Garden
When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It's hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door
And you feel that you can't take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can't face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

Because there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breathe again

Fate of leaves and storms

I don't think I ever fully appreciated leaves' entertaining qualities until this morning. Lol.

Ugh I officially hate basketball. Big ball and little target do not work for me. Small ball and little target much better.
I'm too tired to make that sound non-suss. I guess I just have to deal with Rhod's over-actively suss mind ...
XD
You can tell that a lot of the girls there today play(ed) netball. You really can.

I finally got 'Fate' (Jennifer Lynn Barnes) yesterday!!!!!!!!!!
I totally love it. I can hardly put it down - I NEED to know what on Earth (or in Otherworld/Nexus, lol) is going on.
How on Earth does Jennifer get such good stories?

Ugh. I need to learn not to jump ahead. I think that's one lesson that'll never sink in though XD

I never realised how hard song-writing was til now. For music, we have to write a pop song ... and I can come up with music and lyrics and stuff ... but it ain't pop, it's definitely ALTERNATIVE. Cos I listen to so much of it XD
But seriously, come ON. So much pop music is really boring and ... shallow. Not much meaning, especially trying to apply it to reality.
Ah well. At least we're off baroque now ... that wasn't the best of things to be studying. I hate Handel. And harpsichords. We should've been able to listen to more of Toccata in D Minor, Bach. That's that horror movie-y one.

Storms and Fevers - The Grates
Kick the shepherd, I'll bite the lion, yeah,
I don't need no one to guide me, I've been doing this alone.
Out the back of my old house, I'm lighting fires standing aways,
What a way to lift a weight.

Lately, I've been needing your help badly,
Lately, I need someone to walk me home,
Lately all I get is storms and fevers,
Lately I feel lost, I feel lost, cause.

You earn the big bucks, your hands are all cash,
While I'm just sweating and drowning in my bad luck looking for a hopeless grasp.
You and your wish list, self made on self pride,
I feel like everything I ever did and every little thing ain't ever worked out right.

Lately I've been needing your help badly,
Lately, I need someone to walk me home,
Lately, all I get is storms and fevers,
Lately I feel lost, I feel lost, cause.

Wait wait, this feeling ain't gonna wait.

Kick the shepherd, I'll bite the lion yeah,
I don't need no one to guide me, I've been doing this alone.
Out the back of my old house, I'm lighting fires standing aways,
What a way to lift a weight, what a way to lift a weight.

South of the border you're a spinning wheel,
All hands shake but some of them steal,
Each to their own so what have you got,
Time doesn't change when you gonna stop?

6-word novels and a Roald Dahl poem

Some guy wrote a story in six words and people are saying it's his best work. Well, I guess cos he was one of them classical writers then that's understandable - have you seen how much they can rattle on about the most boring little thing???????
Anyway here it is:
For sale: baby shoes, never worn.
-Ernest Hemingway
If you 'look deep' into it and really REALLY critique it and obsessively think about it, then I guess ... BUT WHO ON EARTH WANTS TO DO THAT ABOUT THAT SHORT BORING STORY.
I prefer the ones with humour (most of these are by proper published, even a few big-name authors, btw):
Failed SAT. Lost scholarship. Invented rocket.
-William Shatner
Computer, did we bring batteries? Computer?
-Eileen Gunn
Automobile warranty expires. So does engine.
-Stan Lee
(Ain't that always the way)
Longed for him. Got him. Help.
-Margaret Atwood
(LOL)
Machine. Unexpectedly I'd invented a time
-Alan Moore
(It's actually really clever! If you think about it)
We kissed. She melted. Mop please!
-James Patrick Kelly
O___O
It's behind you! Hurry before it
-Rockne S. O'Bannon
I'm dead. I've missed you. Kiss ... ?
-Neil Gaiman
(Just think about this one ... it's also quite clever)
The baby's blood type? Human, mostly.
-Orson Scott Card
(It's ALIEN????? You don't want that - just watch one of the Alien movies, trust me)
I couldn't believe she'd shoot me.
-Howard Chaykin
(You better believe it :P)
Easy. Just touch the match to
-Ursula K. le Guin
(Now this one's good!!!!!)
Tick tock tick tock tick tick
-Neal Stephenson
Smoke alarm. Bonus snooze button included.
-Kyrielle
(That's one bonus I might actually pass on!!!!!)
Bush told the truth. Hell froze over.
-William Gibson
Bang postponed. Not Big enough. Reboot.
-David Brin
Eyeballed me, killed him. Slight exaggeration.
-Irvine Welsh
"Oh that? It's nothing. Not contagious."
-Ugusten Burroughs
(Obviously someone and the beginning of swine flu, lol)

And I think this poem is hilarious, so here we are:
The Price of Debauchery (Roald Dahl)
My mother said, "There are no joys
In ever kissing silly boys.
Just one small kiss and one small squeeze
Can land you with some foul disease."

"But Mum, d'you mean from just a kiss?"

"You know quite well my meaning, miss."

Last week when coming home from school
I clean forgot Mum's golden rule.
I let Tom Young, that handsome louse,
Steal one small kiss behind my house.

Oh, woe is me! I've paid the price!
I should have listened to advice.
My mum was right one hundredfold!
I've caught Tom's horrid runny cold!

Enjoy. I put a lot of work into rounding and typing all that up (I didn't want to use copy/paste for some reason).

Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ... for yesterday XD
You know who you are =]

Fave school sub(re)ject (LOL) and Eurovision

At school my current favourite subject would be science.
It's so EASY. Just take notes. Memorise stuff. Know a few things. Don't have to worry about marks so much, except for the few-and-far-between exams. Don't have to worry about people's opinion (eg the teacher's). Don't have to worry about handing stuff in. Don't have to worry about one thing screwing everything else up.
I don't have to worry about those things all the time in other subjects. But they come up.

Anyway, four hockey games this week. No soccer training cos I can't really make Monday training and Wednesday this week was cancelled. Just shows how much better it was to have soccer on Tuesday and Thursday nights.

Ugh I'm not in a good mood for some reason I dont know. Cos I've had a great past few days ... since lunchtime Friday XD

Anyway, Eurovision Song Contest Finals 2009 was on last night. And Norway won :( I reckon Iceland should've won - Iceland was AMAZING. But NO, and what's more is that this year, Norway won with the largest amount of points in Eurovision history.
Yohanna - Is It True? (Iceland's entry)
Armeia's was pretty good too, VERY catchy :) And Croatia ... and Estonia ... XD

Anyway, here's the lyrics for Is It True:
You say you really know me,
you’re not afraid to show me
what is in your eyes
So tell me about the rumours
Are they only rumours?
Are they only lies?
Falling out of a perfect dream, coming out of the blue.
Is it true?
Is it over?
Did I throw it away?
Was it you?
Did you tell me you would never leave me this way?
If you really knew me
You couldn’t do this to me
You would be my friend
If one of us is lying
There’s no use in trying
No need to pretend
Falling out of a perfect dream, coming out of the blue
Is it true?
Is it over?
Did I throw it away?
Was it you?
Did you tell me you would never leave me this way?
Is it true?
Is it over?
Did I throw it away?
Was it you?
Did you tell me you would never leave me this way?
Is it real?
Did I dream it?
Will I wake from this pain
Is it true?
Is it over?
Baby did I throw it away?

I got some hairdryers today and majorly blew some clouds away

Well despite having to miss one of my hockey games today to do NAPLAN (still totally mad about that!) it was a good good good good day overall! And I still have two hockey games to play yet!
The NAPLAN writing was actually fun. I really really really want my writing back to keep - I like it. And it broke a spell of writer's block and it was so calming! It's quite amazing how calming it was, cos I was NOT happy about some things.
And at lunch Mute turned up!!!!!!!
THAT'S something to celebrate.

Anyway, an awesome song:
Nothing Sir - The Grates
you can't stop the sun,
from come, come, coming out,
cos i've got my hairdryer,
and i'm gonna blow all the grey clouds away.

you think my life's been,
unpleasant and unclean,
what i've got up my sleeve,
it cuts up all of the bad things that i've seen.

what you got? nothing sir, what you want? nothing sir.
what you got? nothing sir, what you want? nothing sir.
what you say? nothing sir, what you want? nothing sir.
what you got? nothing sir, what you want? nothing sir.

i've got a passport,
to travel the universe,
a flicker like suki,
can eat from my hand and jump right to sushi.

i can't seem to keep my feet on the ground,
whenever it is that you are around,
we get so high i am frightened to move, yeah,
can't you see me? can't you see?

what you got? nothing sir, what you want? nothing sir.
what you got? nothing sir, what you want? nothing sir.
what you say? nothing sir, what you want? nothing sir.
what you got? nothing sir, what you want? nothing sir.

why are we the unhappy ones?

you can't stop the sun,
from come, come, coming out,
cos i've got my hairdryer,
and i'm gonna blow, i'm gonna blow...

MORE HOCKEY!!!!!!

Thanks J!!!!
I've finally heard about the school KO hockey team ...
Talk about leaving it to the last minute though - girls in my hockey team have been talking about their school KO teams for WEEKS!
Oh, this is going to be fun ... at the hockey centre for THREE games this Saturday. I am PSYCHED AS.
Well ... playing for three teams now ... SCORE.

I've spent the past couple of days listening obsessively to Enya. She uses such strange instruments, and has such a strange vocal style, but it really works!
Also found a very good song a couple of days ago, if you're interested: Carousel, by Paper Route

Let's leave on a funny note with the translated lyrics of yet another song I like :D
Called 'A Mhuirnin O', it's by Clannad and is in Irish. It's about some rich girl who attracts some guy with a posh accent but no money. They get married, but it's not working out for the girl ... until the guy wins the lottery. LOL
Here it is:
My darling love, will you come back home?
My darling love, will you come with me?
My darling love, will you come back home?
My darling love

He was down at the market
He drank and sang all day long
When night came and he hadn't a penny in his pocket
Oh what a shame I didn't take the missus' advice

I met him at sunrise
A charming, healthy and lively young lad
When he lifted his hat and spoke with a smile
I fell in love with him, thought it would never end

My coat had buttons of silver
And the best silk ribbons in the country
Golden chains and precious stones
I truly enticed him with my glitter and gold

No one knew from which part of the land he came
He spoke nobly and with pleasant ease
Rumor had it that there was a lord in his family
It wasn't long 'til I was engaged to him

The bond is long and difficult to untie
It's much better to be sure of it*
It didn't take long 'til he broke my heart
Indeed this is not the story I'd prefer to be telling**

But then he went back down to the market
And bought a ticket for a pound or two
Luck was on his side, he won the lottery
Now we'll forever be living the good life

*This might mean that the link to this nobleman was a very distant one, and that 'he' therefore was not rich - in fact quite poor; so she instantly regrets her engagement to him.

Reading suggestions

If anyone's short on reading material at the moment, I've got some suggestions:
  1. First off, the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson has had a new addition - "Max". I've read a bit of it so far in the bookstore (lol). Looks pretty good - better than "The Final Warning" anyway.
  2. More new material in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare - "City of Glass". Just don't tell me about it until I ASK you. I've hardly been able to TOUCH a copy yet, let alone start READING it yet.
  3. More more MORE new material, "Fate" by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Considering how much of a genius writer she is, I'm expecting this one to be at the very least really good.
  4. Now for something I HAVE managed to read - Robin Cook books! Robin Cook is an AWESOME author ... except if you're bad with needles and death and other medical / gory / whatever stuff ... XD
  5. And just for a great series - "Circle of Magic" by Tamora Pierce.
Yes, they are all on my to-read list ... duh ... reading some of Cook's books at the current point in time ... I think it's called Contagion. So far it's about a plague / similar highly infectious disease epidemic in New York (I think it's NY anyway - no good at American geography). And it originates in a HOSPITAL. Lol. Anyway, it's from the forensic pathologists' POV. So yes, plenty of death in this book, particularly as the main character WORKS IN THE MORGUE. LOL.

So what's everyone else reading right now? I'm curious. And any more suggestions?

TRC, school and stupid State testing

I've gone back to reading Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. Missed it a lot XD
It's a manga / anime series by my absolute favourite artists ever - CLAMP, which is a group of Japanese artists. Tsubasa is about a princess whose lost her memories and the boy trying to find them for her, before she dies.
It's great - perfectly balanced in genres, so pretty much anyone could read / watch it. Perfect - and I mean PERFECT - graphics. Perfect plot. Etc ...

Ugh school was back last week. Sure it's great to see my friends again and some of the work is good but ... idk ... don't like some of the work / teachers and some of my friends are being downright ... annoying, mean ...

Stupid NAPLAN testing in just over a week ... why can't the State government leave us alone? Isn't it enough that we have the School Certificate next year? Isn't the previous State testing stuff enough? Isn't it enough that we get heavily tested at school?
Obviously, the answer is NO. Which I am not happy with. Wasting valuable (cough cough, lol) English lessons on trial tests that the teacher tells us should take 65mins to do when everyone, including my insanely sleep-deprived self, does in 20.

Well, I'm off to read some more. I wanna end up finishing the first chapter before I sleep.

Zombies drink blood - oh sorry, that was cranberry juice!

I borrowed some of the Cranberries' CDs from the library the other day. They're an interesting band, and the music is pretty soothing (for ME anyway, but I can tell ya that most people won't think so).
One of their songs, Zombie, is particularly good. Not just musically, but in the meaning behind the lyrics:

Another head hangs lowly,
Child is slowly taken.
And the violence caused such silence,
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it's not me, it's not my family.
In your head, in your head they are fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are crying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?

Another mother's breakin'
Heart is taking over.
When the violence causes silence,
We must be mistaken.

It's the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen.
In your head, in your head they're still fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are dying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?


The lyrics refer to the wars between Ireland (the band is Irish XD) and England, cos Ireland was wanting to be independent but England wanted to be the rulers of the whole damn UNIVERSE as they have wanted to and tried to for ever and ever, but now they're too small to, so America's taken over.
Anyway, if you ARE interested (which I don't really expect anyone to be ... ) or just bored, here's the Wikipedia articles on the conflict:
Easter Rising
The Troubles (lol, what a name!)

That's it for now ... So if ya REALLY want more to read click on them Wikipedia articles!

>_<' title plz???

I've caught up on some reading now that the holidays have come through.
I looked at a "new" (as in new to me) author, Charles de Lint. The first book I read of his, Little (Grrl) Lost, was ... ok ... you know, one of them. The other one, The Blue Girl, was actually really good. I'm not gonna go look at his other books though. Just leave it at that.
Read some other books. One was That's Why I Wrote This Song. It was ok, but the best part I can say about it was that it mentioned The Living End XDDDDDDDD
Ummmm ... I can't remember the other books I read. But there weren't too many. I haven't read that many books these holidays, actually ...

My feet have been complaining of being cold almost ALL the time lately ... It's not that cold but my feet think so. Maybe I have to knock some sense into them.

Why do SOOOOOO many people spell "conscience" incorrectly? COME ON PEOPLE, IT'S NOT THAT HARD!!!!
Far OUT!

"I'm not alone cos the TV's on yeah ..."

Actually I don't watch that much TV ...

That does NOT MEAN I AM LONELY!

SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!

UMMMM ... good question actually. The holidays have gotten to me XD

That's all (for now) folks!!!!!!!!!!

Easter, holidays and song names (funny ones)

Easter has come and
... IS STILL GOING ON
Well, in a certain way - I have yet to get most of my eggs cos I was at some heaps fun camp since Friday. I came back home this arvo.
But chocolate is not the main point of Easter. Just remember that, peoples ...

At the moment I'm trying to figure out what I wanna do with the rest of my holiday. Ummmm ... it's gonna take a while.
Two whole weeks trying to entertain myself ...

Anyway, someone played that Green Day song, that goes "I hope you had the time of your life ..." and we were meant to be guessing what the songs they were playing were and who did them. So someone beats me to it but says that it's "Time of Your Life" by Green Day - so I win cos it's not actually called that and I corrected them. :P=
It's called "Good Riddance". And how funny that makes the rest of the song!

I'm off so I can devote more of my head to trying to figure out what I should do for the next couple of weeks. Suggestions would be helpful!

Monday, April 6, 2009

HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mute was at school today. So happy!
XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Anyway, in hockey training this arvo I got taught how to correctly hit a hockey ball. Now IF YOU PLAYED it wouldn't sound so stupid. So all you who are laughing your guts out ...
Anyway for those who DO play - it's AWESOME being able to make the ball go so hard and fast!
(More for those who DON'T PLAY - you poor poor people - in most mixed comps men are NOT allowed to hit the ball)

Meh. Another goalie game just standing around. I was seriously tempted to start doing the Macarena. I should've. Next game.
At least I finally had a good kit today ...

Holidays soon ... wow ...
School seems so timeless.

Not much more to say really, except I missed a trial soccer match (wouldn't have been able to make it either, anyway) and my next hockey games aren't until after the next school term starts D:

6:30 wake-ups on the weekend = EVIL

Today I had to get up at 6:30. ON A SATURDAY!!!!!!!!! It would've been evil, except that it was for a hockey game. I was playing goalie for the B-graders.
LOL. When I got to the Hockey Centre, Rob looks up and goes ... @*&#! Someone had taken the gear home last night! So another kit had to be found, and the one they did was GIANT and missing half the stuff.
But in the end it didn't matter much anyway - the ball only came anywhere near me once, and even then I didn't have to save it or anything. I felt so sorry for the other team, in particular their goalie. Goalie is THE hardest position, cos you got no-one behind you to back you up, you got heapsa pressure on you, you got heapsa stifling and often ill-fitting padding on you ...
My other game, my field game was last night and we won. But I got so confused near the end cos Coach put me as an inner. Of all the positions, put me in probably THE only one (bar one or two) I've never played ...

Anyway, here's a good song. It suits some things, I think. Just not atm - hockey's got me really up and happy.
Save You
I can tell, I can tell how much you hate this
And deep down inside you know it's killing me
I can call, wish you well and try to change this
But nothing I can say would change anything

Where were my senses?
I left them all behind
Why did I turn away?
Away

I wish I could save you
I wish I could say to you
I'm not going nowhere
I wish I could say to you
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright

Didn't mean, didn't mean to leave you stranded
Went away cause I didn't want to face the truth
Reaching out, reach for me
Empty handed
You don't know if I care
You're trying to find the proof

There were times I'd wonder
Could I have eased your pain?
Why did I turn away?
Away

I wish I could save you
I wish I could say to you
I'm not going nowhere
I wish I could say to you
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
Save you
It's gonna be alright
I wish I could say to you

We can pretend nothing's changed
Pretend it's all the same
And there will be no pain
Tonight

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
Save you
It's gonna be alright
I wish I could say to you
I'm not going nowhere
I wish I could say to you
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
Save you
I wish I could say to you
It's gonna be alright

I probably won't get to enter the Youth Week comp I was planning on cos I don't really have the time to get done what I need to. Damn. I was looking forward to entering.
The same'll probably happen with this comp too: http://www.swf.org.au/writenow-competition/
Although I'd like to enter that one too. Especially cos two of those authors are absoloutely awesome.

Have a great day!

Great day overall today!

XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Yup.
Today's totally gotta be one of the best days I've had in a loooooooooooooong time.
  • Thinking about something :D (minus one or two related things ... :C)
  • Went to Westfield and got a CD I'd given up on EVER finding and it was really cheap so I bought it (gonna listen to it in a sec)
  • Listening to some new music, in particular Kelly Clarkson's new album, which has a really REALLY good song or two on it
  • The schoolwork was OK - strange / disastrous weather patterns, the basics of atoms, WW1, and music prac!
  • Saw a documentary in Geography that I watched years ago at the IMAX theatre in Sydney and it brought back good memories
  • Had a good mind-challenging question that I'm still thinking about slightly, in the back of my mind (but I'm still gonna ask, Lily!)
  • Might be getting another (GREEN) hockey stick! (Anything hockey ... XD)
  • And yeah, just more stuff like that!
XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Lists are great sometimes. No need to make sentences that MAKE SENSE.
And heaven knows that can be hard!

Mostly school stuff today

For sport at school next term, I'm gonna do hockey XD Cos hockey was FINALLY put back on!!!! YAY!!!!
Means I will now be at the Hockey Centre for 4 events per week now - training, field game, goalie game and school sport!
LOL my sister's Yr 6 teacher works at the canteen there. And I have a feeling she plays for one of the women's teams, just not my club so I wouldn't know which club it is.

In English today me and Puzzle rewrote most of Romeo and Juliet's "balcony scene" in a modern way and it was sooooooooo fun. I finished the rest of it when I got home. For homework. Cos it's part of a bigger group work project our teacher is making us do for Monday. Me and Puzzle are writing the script and performing it and the other two in our group are doing the research and presentation stuff.

:C Today I was SOOOOOOOOO not in the mood to play Ultimate Frisbee. So I was glad it was so "wet".
I think Dylan was glad too. Cos he got to go through Crystal's iPod. LOL.

I got HEAPS of random CDs from the library today. Some are REALLY good. Like the Thrice one in particular. And I got the All-American Rejects' new album. LOL
"If you see my face, hope it gives you hell ... "
How can you NOT like that song?
I also got a couple of ... STRANGE books as well. Sure, I'm gonna finish them ... but they're sill STRANGE. And I need the novels for English (our teacher makes us read). I was running out. A week ago.

Grrrrrrrrrrr. Our maths teacher thought it would be nice not to assign the last topic of our chapter for homework so we can start the next chapter later. The next chapter is EQUATIONS. WE REALLY WANT TO DO THAT CHAPTER!!!! (Well, I do). It's the best thing in maths, equations.

I got stuff I wanna do, so I'll be off. Bye.

Be prepared for a LONG read

D= Schoolwork has kept me pretty busy lately ...
And now I'm obsessing over my music exam that's on Friday. There's SO MUCH in it. I have to remember heaps key / scale / modulation stuff, baroque dates / features / composers & compositions, intervals (which I'm not SO obsessing about cos of how MUCH we've done them) ... Honestly I have a whole page of what's in it!

Hmmmmm ... things have been rather ... rollercoastery ... for me lately. Just things happening here there and everywhere, and people either not understanding or refusing to understand or maybe it's the same thing about listening.

Lily is going out with someone. AGAIN.
Somethimes I worry about her. Especially with how she was about Shaun after they broke up. I don't like to see my friends hurt.
Which brings me on to how I worry about other friends too ...
Look, I try not to worry, and it works, to a certain extent. I certainly don't worry as much as I could. But it's human nature.
Anyway, it was quite a shock, who Lily is going out with. AND SHE HAD NEVER TOLD ME. :C

O_O I had to play OzTag today. I suck at OzTag. I just CAN'T tag people. I'm too afraid to injure my hand further. Cos it still hasn't healed and I guess I'm just gonna have to accept the fact that it never will.
At least I can still use it for what matters - hockey, writing and drawing.
O_O Even worse I had DANCE in PE today.
!!!!!!!!
I can't dance to save my LIFE. And what's worse is that I'd missed the last lesson - doctor's appointment - so I didn't know the dance we were doing so I had to learn it as we added MORE steps to it.

I'm writing a song at the moment. XD I just need to get to Dad's electric guitar. And that won't happen til ... til ... til ...
Ummmm I don't have much free time Tuesday first week of holidays. But even then Mum probably won't let me. So that makes it ... in two Saturdays' time ... O_O
Uh ... right ...
I have ideas and stuff anyway, so I'll deal ...
I have the lyrics and the music for that done. I like the lyrics XD and I've gotten some good feedback on them so I may as well write them up on here.
Don't Know What To Say

V1. You try not to look around
You try not to remember
How on Earth you got here
‘Cause the memories, they still sear
Close your eyes but the visions burn
Away from everything you try to turn
But the current is too strong and swift
You are too weak and you start to drift

CH. And now you run away ...
And now you run away ...
And now you run away
And you are deaf to our pleas for you to stay
We love you so much more than you know
What makes you so keen to go?
We watch you run away ...
And don’t know what to say

V2. You’re too far out and all alone
Made your heart walls of stone
Nothing should hurt you anymore
But why do you still feel sore?
Escape the pain equals lose yourself
But there’s a greater need to find yourself
Too many problems but no solutions
This conflict is one great contusion

CH. And now you run away ...
And now you run away ...
And now you run away
And you are deaf to our pleas for you to stay
We love you so much more than you know
What makes you so keen to go?
We watch you run away ...
And don’t know what to say

BR. Yes, you’re under attack
Yes, you’re copping mass flak
But if you would just come back!
...
I’m sure there’s something we could do
Something we could do to save you
If you would just come back
We can help save you

CH. And now you run away ...
And now you run away ...
And now you run away
And you are deaf to our pleas for you to stay
We love you so much more than you know
What makes you so keen to go?
We watch you run away ...
And don’t know what to say

Wow, heaps long and there was more I was gonna write, except I forget what it was XD

"Randomme Funnie Stuffe" (ye olde Englishe strange muche?)

I'm gonna annoy yas all today with random funny stuff:

"When you said Alice should bite Bella, I pictured crazy Alice Longbottom launching herself at Bellatrix Lestrange"

When looking around on deviantART I found this [link] and could not resist trying to find the original poem for myself. And so I found it here [link]. And I'm LOLing soooooo much.
It's this stupid 1620s poem about some guy who farts in parliament and they're trying to work out if he meant it as an insult.

[link] The funniest emote I've ever seen.

Uhhhhhh running outta funnies now ... lemme just look ... okies I give up. FIND YOUR OWN!!!

Bye!

TITLES ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOO ANNOYING!!!

Today I didn't have my science test cos my teacher wasn't prepared for it. SCORE.
Though it probably would have been better to have it yesterday ... oh well.

Anyway, after hockey training tonight I had my first game - keeper for the B-graders. I have my first proper game tomorrow, ON FIELD in AR.
Yeah being keeper was actually OK. Although I need to use a bigger helmet next time. I wouldn't wish a small helmet on my worst enemy ... it hurts AND I wear it for almost an hour. Painful.
But apart from that and a couple pf FAILS it was soooooooooooooooo good.
Missed ya hockey!

I have the agenda - FINALLY - for convention (some camp I'm going on at Easter) now. Taken AGES to get drawn up, it has! And I don't have the "need to bring such-and-such" sheet yet.
I'm really looking forward to going - it should be reallyreallyreally fun!

Hmmmm ... Earth Hour is coming up ... I might participate. Not officially though.

I've got a GREAT idea for the photography section of National Youth Week and I just HAVE to do it. Even if I don't end up entering. Thing is, I need TIME. I dont think I'll get the time I need til Wednesday or Thursday.
The theme is "make a move". And in my idea I've managed to put in at least two or three interpretations of the phrase. XD Can't wait to get this DONE! It's been in my head since Saturday!

Kram was on Good News Week earlier.
Still annoyed Spiderbait ain't together.
LOL in JB HiFi they've put Kram's CD under Spiderbait. That's just saying they HAVE to get back.

I'm off. Bye.

AWESOME day today - some literally unbelievable stuff happened XD

Thursday was the athletics carnival. It was an OK day, though I think I would've just prefered to have normal school.
Proper sport is so much better than athletics.
Anyway, on the bus to the athletics carnival, there was this guy who kept dumping deodorant on himself and everyone around him. I was half a minute away from pouring my icecold water down his head and back when he stopped being so annoying and settled down.

I was looking at some book, it's about different mediums you can use for art and it has some tutes, and I can't believe how many paint / ink / whatev types there are!!!!
How are you meant to remember what they're all good / bad for????
*shakes head*

My mum's torn a muscle in her leg, apparently. But I didn't find out til AGES after everyone else did. So yesterday, school early leave day, me and Mado were looking for the car where mum usually parks while walking to the crossing, and Mado asks me "Is your mum picking us up today?" So I answer "Yeah if she remembers" (I didn't know about the muscle yet). And I look up ... and DAD was there. WHAT??? (He was MEANT to be at work!) And yeah ... that was sorta funny ...
LOL it seems to be the time for things like that cos the doctor thinks my aunt has lupus ...

Hehehe I gelled my hair again today and it worked better this time - I got a mowhawk XD
You shoulda seen some of the looks I got cos of that and cos I was wearing all black. I wasn't wearing all black on purpose though - it was all I had left cos the washing hadn't been done this week.

I got new soccer boots today. They're bright green. And (THIS is a total SHOCKER) ... I GOT NEW SCHOOL SHOES. Yes folks, I managed to find some black leather shoes that manage to fit my feet. In fact, I found TWO pairs and had some trouble trying to figure out which pair to get.
How on Earth did that manage to happen???? LOL

I finally got to see (most of) Pirates of the Caribbean! YAY! Good movie. But then, most of yas would already know that.

I've rattled on plenty now ... see yas!

Today ... yeah ... at least I heard something about earthquakes XD

Anyway, to quote Rhoddie: today was a shocker.
It wasn't JUST what happened at lunch, it was ... pretty much everything. Everyone's getting on my case for no reason, everything that can go wrong IS going wrong, there's no time ...
And it's not just my group that's been having problems. Lily's group ... they had a bad day too, at lunch (not a very good time of day anymore, no?) ... things just got out of hand and there's been some suspensions and warnings of suspensions and they're group is now stuffed for the moment.

But there WERE some good parts to the day - my stomach was hurting there for AGES cos I was laughing sooooooooo hard sooooooooo much. And I especially can't think of "sloth" in the same way again (Poor poor Crystal ... ) XD

[link]
A good music vid on YouTube. Wow ...

Anyways, National Youth Week is coming up and I'm thinking of maybe entering some competitions. And there are some REALLY good prizes there ... it'd be lovely to win them but I'm not gonna get my hopes up. One bit.

Soccer tonight was pretty good, we played a game near the end and it went on way past the end cos we all enjoyed it so much XD

Anyone heard about the earthquakes in Victoria? I only just did!

G'night

FOOTY!!!!!!!! XD

O_______O I haven't updated in AGES. Sorry. The internet has been disagreeing with me. As has schoolwork. And I've also been heaps busy with other stuff too.

Guys and Dolls was heaps awesome =]
And while we were down in Sydney we went around in MarketCity a bit and I saw some pretty cool stuff. Eg, for Twilight fans there was this shirt with the slogan: "I kissed a vampire and I liked it" (LOL Katy Perry should do the song like that instead!)
And yeah, the was other stuff, like some cool keyrings and stationary (I love stationary, remember) etc ...

Today I went onto my email and saw SOOOOO many emails ... it's like half of my contacts decided to message me at once ...

I got some hair gel today. Let's see if it actually works ... I hope so!!!!!

I'm off to put some photos on the computer ... I keep forgetting to do that ... so bye!

(LOL gotcha's - there was NO mention WHATSOEVER of footy in here. :P )

Had quite a long day today ... hardly home at all!

So ... I did both hockey and soccer training today ... and took the bus to the hockey centre ... so it all worked fine.
Lugging around my hockey and soccer stuff was SOOOOOOOOOOOO annoying tho!
Anyway, I just looked at my hockey club's website and ...
WHOA
They have like ... EVERYTHING. From news to internal messaging ... (and downloads of the beep test, LOL)
:C Dylan walked straight past me as I was walking out ... XD
I was looking through part of the draw and ... at some point I will be playing my school team. DAMN. WHY????? It's hard enough I had to choose between a proper club and the school team, and now I have to play against them? :""""""C

Oh no, school photos tomorrow ...
I hate school photos.
School photos should DIE.

I was hardly at home today, so ONCE AGAIN I couldn't do my Maths homework :C
It's really hard to get done cos I need either the computer or my text book, plus my pens and book.
And cos I don't drag my text book around everywhere ...
:C

Wednesday I'm going down to Sydney to watch Guys and Dolls at Capitol Theatre ... should be good. If it's not done TOO old-fashioned. LOL Jodie wants an account of the whole ENTIRE thing when we get back cos she REALLY wanted to go but only recently found out she could've if she'd just paid for the ticket last year ... maybe she was confused with years? Idk ...

But anyway, I'm gonna finish up now. Bye.

Saturday, March 7, 2009

"I'm conflicted ... "

Ever had one of those days when you keep alternating from crummy to sparky?
Yeah ...

The title fits ... just a random line from the song I'm listening to. Good coincidence, no?

Anyway ... I've been thinking about this that and the other thing today and nothing clear has come yet. About ANYTHING. Even about the smallest thing, like what to do at the moment - read this book or that one or write or what song ... And then there's other things.
But at least it's exercising my brain. And I don't have to do work to. ;P

The surprise party last night was pretty good. And it was a complete surprise by the look of things. Poor Kayto was COMPLETELY overwhelmed ... WOW at times it looked like she was gonna cry, she was so touched. XD

I guess it's almost lunchtime now ...

I was gonna write something ... what was it?
Lemme think ... *smoke starts pouring out of ears*
Ok maybe that was a bad idea, ey?

If I'm doing proper hockey this year then I'll have training on Monday after school. I still need to decide whether I'll walk there from school or just get off the bus near there. Probably take the bus ... it is a fair walk and I'll have my school bag AND my hockey gear AND another bag with my PE gear, a change of clothes for hockey and my lunchbox. SO ... I think I'll go with getting off my bus there.

See ya

Rants ... about a million of them ... plus surprise bday party warning

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
Why is everyone going out of their way to be soooooooo annoying?
What'd I ever do to them? (OK - don't answer that!)
But ... I'm never THIS annoying! At least not on purpose!
AND I DON'T READ OTHER PEOPLE'S EMAILS. OR OVER THEIR SHOULDER. AT ALL.

ALL RIGHT! Rant re: general annoyingness is OVER.
Onto a new one.

Rant re: camp
Everyone in the year at school keeps going on and on and on and on and on and on ... (etc) about the camp coming up and cabins and group buddies ... I just want them all to shut up cos we've got AGES until ANY of that needs to get sorted out and doing it now is just gonna make so many unnecessary fights. Plus, I'm sick of people saying my name when I'm not immediately around. Very jumpy.

Rant re: people
People who don't know when to stop talking annoy me in particular. My sisters and Motormouth, for example. People who take up more than one seat on a bus for NO REASON annoy me in particular. People who think they're helping but aren't annoy me in particular.

Rant re: rants
Just so you know, I'm hoping this is cathartic and I won't have to do it again ... cos it's starting to annoy ME.



ANYWAYS ...
Going to a surprise birthday party tomorrow. I wonder how much of a surprise it will really be tho ...
But I guess it should be fun.

'Night.

100th Post! (or something like that. maybe there's a draft somewhere) XD

WOW. I think that was the first ever post title I wrote first. And by far the easiest to think of.
... OK. And another first - it was easier to think of the title than the post.

Ummmmmmmm
It was a friend's 17th yesterday. XD I don't feel so old anymore.
And it was a cousin's 13th the day before. Damn, her being so old is beginning to take away the young feeling I had. LOL
Anyway, I had some awesome lemon meringue (or however you spell that word ... ) pie yesterday. And I also found out that Milo as a substitute for coco / chocolate flavour in cake icing is REEAALLLLLYY good. So there's a tip if you plan on making cake. Which doesn't sound like too bad an idea for the weekend as something to do. Better than bored outta my brain anyway.

I listened to some Placebo songs today. One or two of them are particularly captivating. Like 'Commercial for Levi'. That one I've listened to over and over.
LOL another of the songs is pretty funny. Like, it starts off:
"A friend in need's a friend indeed
But a friend with weed is better"
That cracks me up. It's not as funny when Dad quotes it though ... ;P

I read a rather interesting book today. It's called 'The Red Cardigan', by J. C. Burke.
Omigosh ... I lent Puzzle this 300 - 400 page book at the beginning of school and BEFORE THE END OF SCHOOL SHE WAS FINISHED. Where does she get all the time to read it in class? Did she do any of the work?
I'm not blaming her for reading it - it was a REEEAAALLLLLLYY good book - but that kinda threw me a bit. I'm not used to people reading things faster than me. LOL.
Cos most people can't. Seriously. I've read some GIANT books in just one day, but that's cos I haven't had SCHOOL to worry about.
Maybe that's why. Puzzle had the book prioritised over all else.
I don't know ...

Anyways, I guess that's all I wanna say atm ... so bye!
Til next time ...

Music stuff - tours and rarities CD

Was just looking around at stuff, and found out that:
  • Paramore and No Doubt are touring soon and doing some concerts together
  • The Living End will be going on a small tour soon
COOL
Except for the fact that I won't be able to go to Sydney on a Friday for the TLE concert there (which sucks cos this one I'd actually be allowed in - it's an all ages one) let alone going to AMERICA for the Paramore / No Doubt.
Oh well. They're all still going on tour and that's awesome cos they enjoy it.

TLE will also be releasing a rarities CD sometime soon. SO getting that.

That's all I wanted to say. Bye.

Storms and End-of-Summer Informs

Wow. Almost at the end of summer. Quite a strange summer. From extreme to extreme - with flood, drought, bushfire, with COLD and HOT and everything in between, with dry and humid ...

My favourite places are:
  • At the foot of my bed, curled up with a book or hunched over a sketchpad or lounging against the wall daydreaming and music going.
  • Either staircase at my Grandma and Grandad's.
  • My Grandpa's shed, with all the woodworking and gardening tools and sawdust.
  • The hockey field ... particularly at the time when you can watch the sky go from a light blue to ink black.
  • The beach, even if just for a walk.
  • Anywhere outside during a storm - it's always sooooooooooo beautiful.
They're all favourites cos they're good for thinking or they make me feel peaceful. And heaven knows I need that peaceful bit every once in a while ...

Here's a really nice song. It's by Enya ...
Trains and Winter Rains
City streets passing by
Underneath stormy skies
Neon signs in the night
Red and blue city lights
Cargo trains rolling by
Once again someone cries
Trains and winter rains
No going back no going home
Trains across the plains
And in the sky a star alone
Every time it’s the same
One more night one more train
Everywhere empty roads
Where they go no-one knows
Trains and winter rains
No going back no going home
Trains across the plains
And in the sky a star alone
Trains and winter rains
No going back no going home
Trains across the plains
And in the sky a star alone
Trains and winter rains
No going back no going home
Trains across the plains
And in the sky a star alone
Trains and winter rains
No going back no going home
Trains across the plains
And in the sky a star alone

We started watching the Franco Zefirelli version of Romeo and Juliet and it is sooooooooo bad. Everything in it is bad, from the costumes to the actors to the music to the deliverance of lines to the set.
Ugh the man who plays Romeo looks so much like Zack Efron, it's not funny.

My friend Puzzle, on Friday ... YESTERDAY ... asked someone if they thought suicide was cowardly or brave. I think it's neither.
I was pretty annoyed at her for asking that question actually ... it's a rather unpleasant and uncomfortable topic ... for a vast amount of reasons. Particularly the obvious - what suicide is.

Anyway if I don't stop now this'll go on forever. So bye!

PURPLE PEOPLE EATER FOREVER

XD
I got my hair cut today. Cut SHORT. And also ... I got it coloured ... PURPLE!
XD
I really like it how it is now. It looks awesome! And I can't wait to see some other people's reactions ... particularly my grandma (she's gonna go psycho cos I "cut all my curls off" - I've cut my hair short before).
Yeah ... weird thing about my hair is that the longer it is the curlier it is and for most people it's the opposite. So now it's short, and not curly one bit!

That's all I have to say now ... life's ... RELATIVELY uneventful ...
<>>

She STOLE it, I tell you

Yesterday Dad and I put a tape onto the computer - a LOOOOOOOOONG fiddly process but sooooooooooo worth it cos it was an awesome tape. And now it's on my MP3 player XD

Anyway, so far my weekend's been pretty good - at any rate not anything bad XD And today was pretty funny.

I am officially sick of Star Wars theme music. And Star Wars lego. And the words Star Wars. Blame my littlest sister and Xbox.

Y'know later I think I'll go on the Xbox. Cos I haven't in ages cos of my thumb and wrist. But they still haven't healed properly even though it was months ago they were injured or whatev and I really wanna play, so I may as well.

One of my sisters is wearing one of MY shirts, and she never asked me if she COULD wear it. She STOLE it. And I like that shirt! It's my only orange one!
And now I can never wear it again cos she's contaminated it ... LOL
But still, she STOLE it off me.

This high school near mine, the proper area one (mine's a selective and there's a performing arts school near mine too) it has a really weird setup - really short periods and then they have lunch before recess most days. And they only have sport - no PE.
And it's so BIG. Even though compared to some it would be pretty small, mine's a small one - only takes a fairly small amount into each year.
Glad I go to mine.

Ok I'm going now, I'm not really talking about much. Bye

An astonishing discovery

I got some CDs from the library yesterday, and one was this thing where they got some bands and they played songs that are totally different to their usual style. The most hilarious one, and the most UNBELIEVABLE one was ... THE WIGGLES played an ACDC song. O_O
The WIGGLES played an ACDC song ... still can't get over that.
TLE, Spiderbait and Killing Heidi did songs too. And they were awesome. And Killing Heidi officially rules at it.
At the library, I also saw a CD with an interesting cover, and it turns out to be a really awesome CD. So maybe you CAN judge things by their cover.
The Wiggles ...

So anyway, we finally stopped destroying our artworks for art's sake in art now, and we're doing woodblocks. But of the same thing :C At least I don't have to tear up a beautiful charcoal sketch ...

ALMOST FINISHED ROMEO AND JULIET! YAY!
SOOOOOO sick of all these love proclamations, suicide threats and speeches.
Cos COME ON ... I mean, Juliet is thirteen. THIRTEEN. That's younger than I am ...
My compacted version of R&J:
"i am forever in love with rosaline, so why doesn't she love me?"
"come ON romeo, don't be so stupid. let's go to a dance. meet other girls there" *drags protesting romeo*
"oh my rosa- WOW WHO IS THAT GIRL OVER THERE????? I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH HER!"
"juliet. but sorry - we're at war with that family. let her go too"
*romeo meets juliet under her balcony later. almost all the rest of the play is them (mostly romeo) proclaiming their love for each other. that's, idk, about 60 pages?*
"oh no! juliet's dead! i must kill myself!" *dies*
*juliet, that faker, wakes up* "oh no! romeo's dead! i must kill myself!" *dies*
*five pages of speeches about their deaths from other people*
THE END

THE WIGGLES ARE PLAYING AN ACDC SONG!!!!!

Anyway before I kill yas all with another mention of the Wiggles, I better go. Bye!

(PS ... the Wiggles!)

ABBA rox the elavatorrrrrrrrrr ... WHUT?!?!

You know that ABBA song, Honey Honey?
Well take a look at this:

Ewwy Huey, how you're stinky, aha, ewwy Huey
Ewwy Huey, how you kill me, aha, ewwy Huey
I'd heard about you before
Don't wanna hear no more
Cos now I know what they mean
You're a stink machine
Oh you make me dizzy
Ewwy Huey, won't you beat it, aha, ewwy Huey
Ewwy Huey, cos you don't conceal it, aha, ewwy Huey
The way you stink up the room
Makes me wanna put you in a monsoon
That way you're either all clean or you've drowned
Gonna have a shower later, but I enjoy seeing you cry
So maybe I'll leave it, and watching you'll give me my high
I'm getting rid of you, boy, and I don't care how it's done
Cos once I'm rid of you I might finally have some fun
Ewwy Huey, too much BO, baby, aha, ewwy Huey
Ewwy Huey, get deo, baby, aha, ewwy Huey
You look like a pile of poo
A shower's too much for you
And Huey, to say the least, you're a foul beast
I'm getting rid of you, boy, and I don't care how it's done
Cos once I'm rid of you I might finally have some fun
Ewwy Huey, how you're stinky, aha, ewwy Huey
Ewwy Huey, nearly kill me, aha, ewwy Huey
I'd heard about you before
Don't wanna hear no more
Cos now I know what they mean
You're a stink machine

(My apologies to any nice guys whose name is Huey)
So what do yas all think?
I had the best time writing it, I tell you ... XDDDDDDDDDD

School is going ok atm, steady but not too much homework (actually wouldn't mind a bit more ... sad I know ...), fair classes, great being with so many of my friends ...
I wouldn't mind it if it stays this way, but it's not - the homework is gonna build up, classwork will change, exams'll come up ... but there's also gonna be proper excursions soon XDDD like going to the art gallery, eistoddfods (or however you spell that!), camp, a production down in Sydney ...

I might be able to play in a proper hockey team ... right now I play for the school in various comps ... YAY. FINALLLY got some contact details ...

LOL todaisy I was really hyped, for no reason ... it's like that song, "hyped to the hill on red colouring" except this time there was no red colouring.

So I think that's pretty much it for today, so bye!

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Some random whining, I guess ... it wasn't supposed to end up like whining anyway ...

Ok. I got some writing done! YAY! And I did a rough of some artwork I'm planning.

No-one (except u, Annie <3) had been on email in ages ... unless it's for forwards ... :C

So anyway, Dad comes back from Melbourne tonight. And he's bringing me a cow-shaped stress ball! XDDDDDDD Can't wait XDDDDDD

My moods have been so whacked out over the past three or four days ... It's SOOOO frustrating. Especially cos there's absolutely NO reason for most, if not all of it.

I can't wait for Tuesday night cos I got hockey. 1) It's not at school or home 2) It helps me centre myself 3) It's fun.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr whoever invented timers is gonna DIEEEEEE an awful death that I devise. Just gimme a few minutes.

Friday, February 13, 2009

Just random stuff that's happening

Lily and Shaun broke up Tuesday avo, and it really got to Lily. The untouchably happy friend of mine was in tears so much on Wednesday. She's a lot better now, but she's not totally back to her untouchably happy self. That'll take a while.
One day Shaun will regret it.

Anyway, today may be Friday the 13th, but at school Valentine's Day roses were abundant. Stupid things.
Valentine's Day annoys me. Friday the 13th is better, cos 13 is my favourite number, along with 7.

I haven't done any proper art or writing in soooooo long cos I've been totally focused on schoolwork and helping my friends out and reading (there were a couple of books I wanted to finish). And I still need to sort out that last bit of my room. I wish I could just gain like 3 hours or something in the day so I can just focus on drawing, colouring, painting or writing for a worthwhile time.
I don't consider pencilled still life in art class as proper art, just so you know.

Dad's in Melbourne at the moment, at some work conference. It sounds like he's having fun.

So anyway, that's all, really. Unless you wanted to know I'm awesome at converting both parts of a rate. I still like equations better, tho.
I hate how behind my maths class is ... we're on 1.6 and one class (Mrs C's of course ... ) is almost at 3.1 ... if they're not there already ...

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Now I see you've broken a feather ... WTH?

Waaaaah I played hockey in pouring rain earlier. It was fun until I stopped playing, then it was plain nuisance, being so wet. And I managed to get hit in the head when playing soccer during PE, and fall over in volleyball (sports science). But getting hit in the head was pretty fun too :DDD

How do you 'break a feather'?

Lately I've been going from really quiet to really talkative. So those who I've not said much to - SORRY! (I don't much care about being talkative)

Tomorrow is gonna prove busy ... fun ... NOT.

SOOOO tired now - I'm going to bed. Night all.

Sunday, February 8, 2009

Titles bore me

Ok so my list for yesterday didn't totally work. I didn't clean up my room and I did no art or drawing whatsoever. I fail. Yesterday failed.

Grrrrrr I'm sick of listening to my sister completely and utterly failing to kill Elites in Halo 2.
I'm probably the best player of Xbox in my house. After all, I finished the game that no-one I know of has finished ... :D Feels good to be good at something.

Once again school is now dominating life, telling me how I spend the majority of my day ... well what FEELS like the majority of my day cos it spreads round the middle of the day. In actuality it isn't the majority of the day, you just can't do much after it's taken up the main hours of the day.
School should totally start in the afternoon and end late. That way you can do heaps more in the day.

Ants are getting into the house through my room. I hate them.

Someone's already managed to call me jellyfish ... LOL

There are some conversations where you don't want to come in partway through them ... XD I can think of so many like that.

Currently reading: Stravaganza: City of Secrets
Going to start reading by the end of the day because I'm almost finished the current book: ??
I have a choice - Tamora Pierce's new book, finish Airman, or to find where I got up to in the Traveling Pants books. And I really don't know which.
I love that word, Stravaganza. It's got a real flair about it. And it's not a real word :[
I'm not really reading too much atm though. I just can't stay still that long - even my eyes don't wanna stay that still. And my brain just shuts down after a sentence or two.

Anyway, this is a cool site to muck around on: http://www.wordle.net/create
Take a look. Please?

Gtg now, bai!

Saturday, February 7, 2009

Sonja is ... [insert random word here please]

Is everyone super busy cos school's back?
I'm not.
Just focusing on the work and stuff somehow gives me more time. I think it's cos I don't daydream anywhere near as much. Cos I do that a lot XD
And most of the work provides release, better release than a book or something like that, cos it's more active and better for you than if you were doing something non-productive.
I'm not saying that HEAPS of work is good for you, heaven knows it's the very OPPOSITE, but some work is good.

Yes I had cake for breakfast yesterday ...

How I'm gonna spend the rest of the day:
- clean up my room AGAIN
- write or draw heaps (I've got a couple of story ideas just stewing in my head)
- listen to heapsa Spiderbait cos I haven't done that in a while
- dream about the upcoming new seasons of hockey and soccer
- maybe read a bit

Lists are fun. I've started using them heaps. They make you look so organised ... XD And they actually do help to express some things better.

Music yesterday was so fun - the peoples who didn't do their performances yesterday did theirs (and could be heard a couple of blocks away), homework was checked and those who's done their homework (only about half the class) could do prac for the rest of the lesson - SCORE!
And English ... LOL
There was a strike yesterday so we only had three lessons. And they were pretty good ... art would've been better if I didn't have to draw tablecloth patterns ...

Next week ... is new :P

One day I was writing this random stuff, and I started the sentence: Sonja is ... then I added the first word that came to my head. And it was: jellyfish. And therefore I somehow ended up with: Sonja is a jellyfish.
Sonja is a jellyfish.
WTH?

So that ends today ... sorry there's nothing much. Life is fairly dull. With the exception of a few things ... LIKE HAVING AN AWESOME SLICE OF CAKE FOR BREAKFAST XD
