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
