July 23, 2009
so anyway. i dont even remember what the last thing i posted about. i shall assum last week of holidays. one VERY busy week. i think i wrote about monday so on with tuesday!
My birthday! went to the city for a music outing with buddies lynneal, mitch and alara! supposedly this is alaras first outing with school friends in 2 YEARS! crazy girl. but yeah she gave me chocolate and starburst, which i havent eaten all of yet. might bring it monday for our music practice. So anyway. the city. got off at central and walked to market city. there we went galaxy world! play daytona! came last the first game. then first the next game! haha how that happened i have no idea. played a few other things then got some tickets! and got a some new juggling balls with them. and a dice and i dont know what heppened to the rest of it... haha. then we went to china town! and went to morning glory! there was a GIANT mario toy! it was cool. stayed in there for a little while and lyn and mitch decided to buy me some stuff. THANKS FOR THAT! i feel weird when people buy me stuff. unless its my parents. haha. anyway we headed into espionage coolest store name to go along with the coolest shoes that they have there. mitch wanted to buy new shoes, which he did. black and yellow airforces with trippy laces. they were cool. so my birthday and mitch buys shoes. of course! we stopped by another morning glory store. haha it was near by thought we might as well look, again. we came out with what we came in with. oh alara did buy a cute yoshi plush toy! but yeah. thought we should go and watch a movie. TRANSFORMERS becouse i haven't seen it yet and either had lyn. alara and mitch on the other hand had both seen it twice already but ther didnt mind. also got easyway on the way in. i think i got a honeydew milk tea with jelly. but which jelly? i dont wuite remember. i wanted pearls but they had none! OUTRAGE! the line was HEAPS long fo buy tickets. stood in line for 10 minutes it seems, while drinking my easyway. so we sit in the cinema. lynneal, alara, me and mitch. not in the best seats available (assigned seating - greater union). i think the easyway was a bad idea. 30 minutes into the movie and i needed to pee!! AHHHHHHHH. hahaha wasnt too bad. i survived. the move was pretty cool. YAY for cgi! megan fox was only there to be hot. there was an excess of her in slow motion running scenes. hahahaha and i agree with ama. she doesnt shut her mouth!! damn prawn! hahaha. well movie finished. i rushed to the toilet and there's a LINE!! well it was already afternoon when we got out. stuffed with chips and chocolate we walk down to CAPITOL! what an asian way to finish an asian day! its starting to become a music outing tradition. so we hopped on a train, it was good timing. I hope these music outing days dont die out, they are quite fun.
WEDNESDAY was back to school for me. yet again i slept in! haha. i got to school to see out pie still intact! and spent the morning running between music and dt. why did they have to be on opposite sides of the school?! practiced some of my songs a bit on the piano and then back ot dt to check up on what shuang was up to. mr. mell got shuang a whole bunch of cardboard and we made a cardboard pyramid out of these little carton things! it was AWESOME! taller than me. we were quite proud of our achievement. but after we went upstairs to show sir. we come out of the stairwell to find it had collapsed!!! we were sad! very very SAD! it was a well spent half hour though. then we had a lunch break. went to the music rooms to eat some cheesecake! and watch people practice. watched laura and mitch's for a bit. then showed miss one of mine again. I NEED TO WORK ON IT AND PRACTICE with lynneal AND mitch. AH we havent pracgticed with everyone together yet!! oh no and my assessment is on TUESDAY! im quite worried about this one. oh well practice tomorrow! then bumming at the plaza afterwards and then we get to watch jenny, piano genious and snowman perform! yay! anyway. went back to dt to actually do some work. i swear half the time im at schoom im not working. OMG i need to order plywood!!!! i was meant to do that yesterday!!! CRAP! so much for my recovery day today. I will have to do some dt work after this.
THURSDAY, the formal committee (minus nams) went to geraldine's to make invites! oh and it was also rachel's birthday. she only stayed for an hour and a half before she had to go to celebrate with her families. we actually got a lot done. finished all the invites and made a start at the name tags for the tables. during which we watched lots of tv. super sweet 16 on mtv. MY GOD THOSE KIDS ARE SUCH COWS! mooooo. haha bloody spoilt brats. had pizza for lunch. it was good oh and there saw the most AWESOME house in teen cribs! i want a BOAT BED!! and they had a milk bar and slamball court in their house!!!
FRIDAY i was back to school AGAIN! and yet again i slept in late! i did eat breakfast this time. i had an apple on the train. not much of a breakfast but better than nothing. well i spent the morning in music and art (even though im not an art student - im their adopted student that doesnt need to do the work but is just there for support and opinions). i brought a guitar in to practice with lynneal and to add some live music to the workplace. scabbed some of mr kirkby' food too while i was there and shared some of my brithday chocolate which i got from alara. then we went back to the music rooms to practice inside. played piano for a bit and practiced sea lion. and then taught shuang to juggle coz dora just fails! haha. practiced with mitch to and then went off to work in dt! left my juggling balls with the art kids so that maybe they could perfect thier skills while i was gone. dt was kinda productive my templates are finally COMPLETE! yay! all the corners rounded off and nicely sanded. after we walked down high street (shuang, lyn, dora and i) to buy fabric and such for our costumes for my party! then down to the plaza for some food (i was yet to have a proper meal all day). shared a quiche with lyn and bought some icecream. white chocolate fudge and strawberry delight for me. it was yum. came home to do some last minute things for the party! rachel came over and we worked on our pinata (our baby). just finished painting it. it was a rainbow hot air balloon. i also cropped my jacket (without actually cutting it) looked good.
i can write about yesterday in another post, this is long enough as it is.

My brother was also showing me all these awesome phones from Japan that he is thinking of getting and now I WANT ONE!! I've had my phone for too long and it needs upgrading! I can spend some of my birthday money for it. But I might jsut use if for shopping when I go out to the city on my actual birthday.
I was suprised we weren't going to have a massive July party for the family, seeing as there are six people who have thier birthday in July. Four in three days. Oh well.
I don't have much else to write.
July 15, 2009
So Monday was meant to be the beginning of my supposed Holiday Study Regime. Haha, what a joke! Naturally being me, I needed to find something to procrastinate with. SO I decided to make Lynneal her birthday present.
Well I woke up at around 9:30 - 10ish on Monday morning (I think) and didn't really do anything for a bit. I think I had cereal. [Ah I keep getting distracted from writing this post.] I decided that I should make Lynneal's birthday present and by 11am I got to work.
[Okay pause in writing this post. I have some washing that needs to be put up and a reasonable bejeweled score to set.
And now I am back. Washing hung. Bejeweled score set, though I for some reason am incapable of getting above 100k now! It makes me sad. So sad that I want to go watch How I Met Your Mother instead of finishing this post. But I should. Like how I should do some school work or study. Haha.
ANYWAY. On with Monday's recap.]
I thought I'd maker her a stuffed toy. At first a rabbit but then I chose to make a bear. And after I drew up a rough design, the production of Lynneal's birthday bear began! It took me AGES. Like 5 hours! Maybe because I kept sewing things wrong and had to take out the stitching a few times. It was annoying. But in the end I got it done and made my room a mess yet again.
I will edit and add photos later. I can't be bothered right now. ^^
And this post is long enough so I shall write about yesterday in another Post.
July 12, 2009
Here are some crapy quality photos of the making of my bunting triangles, taken with my phone .
There is SO much to be done for the party! I am going to attempt at making a start at the bunting today! Stayed up very late yesterday planning stuff with Rachel. I think the menu has FINALLY been finalised, due for maybe a bit of tweeking but it should be all set by the end of the week. I also need to get my costume sorted still! I need to get fabric for my skirt/tutu (still dont know which yet) and I need to find those vertical stripe tights! AH!
And I keep browsing through craft blogs too. So much inpirational stuff!! I want to make stuff now. I might today and if i do i shall post a pic of it up which will be crap quality coz it will be taken with my phone camera.
ALSO I don't know what to get Lynneal for her birthday. It's on Tuesday and I have no idea what to get her. Or maybe make for her. Who knows.
Well I shall leave this as a short post. I have things to do! Might upload some pictures from my phone later..

Now access to the birds involves a long screening and verification from the people in power, the ones in charge. No free admission. No public access.

I went and spent an extra $10 on some material I DIDN'T need because I got the dimentions wrong. $10 may not sound like much but for a major which requires me to spend almost $500 on materials alone, any saving is a good saving.
You could probably tell me that I should have checked the measurements before I left for Bunnings on Monday night. Well, I was in a hurry to leave home and just brought my DT book, which should have had the measurements in them.
I took my new book, which is nearly empty instead of my old book, which was packed with crap to do with my major. Why? I don't know. I would have thought that I would have coppied it in by now (which I should do actually before I have another mix up). It would seem I thought wrong and just assumed the measurements.
It was a fairly close assumption might I add. Unfortunately it wasn't close enough. I was out by 7cm on one side. Might not sound like much but it is a difference that made me buy the next size up in standard plywood sheets. I even went home to breeze through my new book to find that I have been using those incorrect measurements since I transferred to working in that book.
Because that new sheet of ply was quite big (1200 x 900 x 7mm) and I didn't need the whole thing, I cut it at home so it was a more comfortable size to have on the train to take to school. With the wrong measurements in mind I cut it bigger than I needed to and therefore wasting some of that plywood (why did it have to be so expensive!?).
I am QUITE annoyed. A few games of bejeweled has helped though I must admit. They reset the scores and I'm coming first at the moment. I'm sure I won't be for long but being first for a while is better than nothing!
[about two hours later... (my first place bejeweled score gone) ]
My father decided to use the computer in the middle of writing this entry. It would seem that my previous rage (not much of a rage though) has disappeared and I have lost my ability to rant farther on the topic. I was going to ramble on some more about somt other things concerning this little mix up but the urge to do so has gone. And I have forgotten what it is I was going to continue ranting about.
Anyway, I have some recalculations to do, which I really can't be bothered but must. I checked my book and it seems that I have been using the wrong measurements for the past month. Oh well. It doesn't really effect what I've done, which is good.
I will stop now.

It's like this; eat lunch at recess, eat the rest of my food by lunch, starve on the train, get off the train, buy food and eat it while I wait for the bus and when I get home I eat some more. Today I bought an iced donut and then came home to find that my dad had brought home some Hungry Jacks. Naturally, I couldn't let that food go to waste, so now I sit here on my butt eating fast food. How lovely.
There's a sheet of plywood in my garage that needs to be cut, which I told myself I would cut today so that I could bring it to school tomorrow. But it's still sitting there. I will cut it... later. I need to bring it to school tomorrow though so it WILL happen today.
I have hiccups.
I'm looking at some sites I found in Dora's Frankie magazine which I took note of. After following some links I came across a site which sells things that people have made by hand. http://www.madeit.com.au/ I was looking at all the plushies and I am inspired to make some in the holidays! I already have designs for some which just never got around to production. Hopefully I will make one this holidays. Some other things I want to try and make too.
Geez, too many things to do this holidays. I will be ever so busy busy BUSY. Although in theory I will be busy, I'm sure I won't end up doing half of what I plan to do. Damn procrastination!
"Hard work pays off in the long run, procrastination pays off now"What a great quote. However true, procrastination is detrimental to my HSC. And I'm aiming for over 90 UAI (screw ATAR it's stupid). If not I'll be sad and I may have to do VisComm at UWS, which I don't want to do. UTS FTW! Ah... I can't wait till uni but I will miss high school terribly. Well the people and the abuse of our senior rights. I need to find somewhere where I can have access to a BADGE MAKER. Those things are TOO fun.
Yay for birds and babies! Or better yet baby birds!! Hahaha...
ANYWAY, I have things to do and procrastination to get out of the way (of which this post is part of).
July 6, 2009
This is taking me quite a while to write this. I started at around 5 when I got home after school. then I didn't know what to write. Had dinner. Went to Bunnings! Bought some plywood (ply is expensive, I hate that) for my DT major. I also got HEAPS of paint swatches from the paint section. Try a 2cm thick pile. Hahahaa. Came home. And now I keep getting distracted by music and MSN.
What else can I write about?! Oh, a particular someone beat my bejeweled score on facebook. Damn you! I can't be stuffed to get a better score. My internet is capped for the next 10 days and scores resent tomorrow anyway. A short-lived victory. Haha. Stupid brother had to stream the WHOLE Everybody Hates Chris series.
Anyway, I should sleep early tonight (exactly what I told myself yesterday...).
Just some notes about school:
Bloody english needs another text! BUT has been moved to next term (thank goodness!!). My DT major is SOO behind schedule and is going to be quite EXPENSIVE. Chem has been mover to next term for sure, and I need to perform in music on Wednesday first period (what a crap time to sing, first thing on a cold winter morning).
The up and coming holidays:
Seems to be VERY busy. First week isn't too busy, but i shall be coming into school quite a few times in the second week for music and dt. Then I need to study for chem and prepare english (GAY). There's Lionel's awesome birthday breakfast! And formal invite making too. A music outing and the reversal of garbage! So much to cram into two weeks.
Anyway, I shall now finish up. It's taken way too long to type up this one post.
July 5, 2009
That would have been the name of my blog if the choice was up to him.
Although awesomesauce is a fun word. It could be used to describe Derek's newest piece of art. I quite like it.
There, happy now Derek?
And thank you Adrian for telling me that the date is wrong. Still need to figure out how to change it and a few other things that need to be tweeked.
*Edit: Problems have been fixed! If there is anything else wrong, please let me know.
**Edit: I swear I am incapable of making a post without mistakes and typos in them. All of my posts so far have needed editing after its initial publishing.
Aside from church this morning I haven't done anything. There's facebook and bejeweled (which thankfully is up and working again). My high score in bejeweled doesn't seem to want to improve. It has been annoying me. Then there is msn and my blog!
Well I suppose I have been doing SOMETHING productive. Today and yesterday I have been playing around with the fonts which are going to be on our year 12 formal invitations. I'm not 100% happy with the current fonts and hope to show our formal committee president what I have done.
So now I am just bored. I should probably go and practice my music performances but like I said, this is lazy Sunday. Sitting on the couch in front of the computer it quite nice. Besides I haven't tried singing for two days, who knows what I sound like. But I am feeling alot better in comparison to this time last week or the whole of last week ion general.
That is all.
Alas here I am.
A bright, fresh blogging noobie! (although the bright bit is questionable)
Hopefully I shall be able to keep this up to date. If not, oh well. If so, it could be due to the fact that I am addicted or am in some sort of procrastination frenzy. With the holidays coming up I assume that boredom and staying in from the cold may have a say in my future activeness as a blogger.
But what will I post?
Anything? Thoughts. Things I find amusing. English hate rants (I foresee this to be a common occurance, at least till after the HSC if I can keep this blog going that long). A day in the life of moi. Some of my little crafty things should I make something new.
The list is long and varied. I'll stick with the first thing i said, "Anything".
And as my first post comes to a close, I wish you goodnight (1:03am - why am I still awake!?) and farewell for now.
*theallmigthyjellyfish - me!
