happy on a saturday


Yay for weekends? Well I think I have an agenda for today and tomorrow so I'm going to:

1. Clean my room.
2. Look for presents/THE LOVELY BONES
3. Maths homework.

I can't believe miss gave us homework, grrrrrr. I don't know, every other subject we don't do any work. And there's no point. HUH. Oh yes, sometime I also have to make cupcakes for my photo essay/assignment thing, YAY. I'll probably use ready-made mix cos it's easier and otherwise it'll just sit there... You see, when I baked stuff a fair bit my mum just bought heaps of packets... And whenever me or my siblings like stuff she always buys heaps of it then we start to hate it. LOL.

the aftermath

So... camp was this week and everyone already knows that. FUN STUFF, except for some mishaps and the rain and the fact that my whole body hurt afterwards, but it's all good. At first I wished it was longer, but now I'm so glad it was only three days otherwise I would've died. I hope this entry isn't too long:





















DAY 1:
I got to school, and a lot of people were there already. Anyway, the teachers lied so we came early for nothing. Went on the bus, got to the centre, ate something, and FINALLY moved into cabins :D They were pretty nice, sort of reminded me of year seven's when we had to be in the guy's cabins. NO, not in their cabins, their blocks. More importantly, there was a giant mirror for the girls, LOL.

Our first activity must've been rock-climbing, according to my camera. SO TIRING. When I was up there, it was hard to move my arms and legs because I'm a weakling. But I made it up to the top twice, so that's all that matters ^^ Our group had Ms. Milner, but we could've had Mr. Lynch if he came instead, boohoo. High ropes after that; it was easy enough, but sort of nerve-racking. The highness was a little sickening and weird...

Free time in the cabin again! Nikkida brought her ghd and it's so good. I WANT ONE. So, we experimented and I ended up giving Tracey and Carmen curly hair. It's hard to curl my own hair sadly... Or maybe that's just my Remington. Dinner was... I'm not sure. I didn't take one, but I ate Julia's creme brulee cos she didn't want it, and it was yummy even though it looked weird. After dinner, we discovered the swing! But it was a bit freaky, cos it was shifty and the frame kept jolting. I think it was eight years and under too, haha.

They made us go on a night walk later, in the wind and the rain and the pitch blackness. It got really hot and I was wearing skinny jeans, HORRIBLE. The view at the spot was really nice though, but I couldn't take pictures because it wouldn't work with my camera. Yeah, I died. Couldn't we have just gone in the daytime? Anyways I was dead after the hike... When we got back our whole cabin (me, Nikkida, Carmen, Tracey, Ashley, Julia, Diem and Anh) sort of squished onto Carmen's bed and talked til around 12. Interesting stuff ^^

DAY 2:
Woke at like SIX on Tuesday, but Anh, Ashley and Diem were up even earlier *0* Had vertical challenge that day, and it was as tiring as rock-climbing. Which one was easier, anyway? At least, I think it was quicker and less painful. We had flying fox after that. Pretty good, but the other group broke it so it was one person at a time, GRR. ==' Oh, and playing basketball in a huge group was really random but funny, psht.

You know those challenge things? Our group failed it, HAH. :L First, the log one took like half an hour, then in the end we still didn't get it XD We ended up not getting to do that wall challenge, aw. FINALLY we went to the beach after that, and it was good! Cloudy, not unbearably hot, and the Mark (?) guy was cool cos he let us not do sports and just played in the sand/water. He let us bury people too\... That night was games night, and we played this Dragontail game in a huge circle. EPIC. I got picked then failed, but watching was so awesome. That game where we had to race to find items was pretty fun too, LOL. Group 7 is gross. GROSS.

DAY 3:
Our group made rafts, which weren't really rafts because both Joss and Troy were in the water anyway o_0 Also went on giant swing. Crazy. I screamed and according to George that's my loudest. But the drop was freaky. FREAKY. The feeling is so weird. But swinging was nice, just not dropping.

Made the most of our last hours at Collaroy by taking photos. I think my camera is half dead, ARGH. I hope I can get a new one in time for Japan trip next year, so excited for that as well. But I need money, and that's a different story. The bus ride home was pretty good, all the people in the window seats slept, while the rest of us amused ourselves.

I told my mum to pick me up at 3:30, but we got there earlier. It was formal and Mr. Lynch had the cake but wouldn't let us see it. Btw, it was Michel's bahaha. Then me and Lisa ran to the courtyard and saw chairs and balloons and stuff, ooh. Can't wait til we start having our formals, it looks so fun :D Anyway, the wait beats last year, when me and Koshila were like, the only ones, SO SAD.

And that's it. I was so dead waking up today, and tomorrow's mufit, DAMMIT. Oh well, I can dress for the weather cos apparently it'll be like 34 degrees. But I hate planning outfits. With a passion. So much effort... (sigh) Well here are photos that turned out okay:

they weren't so great



Yawn, sort of cbf to write anything, today was sooo hot. Not cool. LITERALLY. We got english part one back, finally, and I got 6. Out of 20. ASDFGHJWTH... Oh, and in science, it we did something "related" to the senses topic by lying around on the floor and stuff. Except I kept standing up and stuff because our dresses are really hot and inconvenient for lying on the ground in. ==" Mr. Peck has such weird music and he wouldn't let us turn it off, huh.

Geography was watching Man vs. Wild again. LOL we've watched so many episodes now it's really predictable, like... Bear (the guy's name) always HAS to jump out of a moving vehicle and HAS to drink his own pee at some point and there HAS to be some weird reflective/sentimental/wildlife moment and crap. Pfft. He/his cameraman better be paid good to do all that stuff, LOL.

So... I need to pack for camp this weekend and my parents think they're gonna take us an hour away for some stranger's 18th birthday. YEAH RIGHT. Apparently it'll cool down by Monday, so yay/nay? Hrm. Anyway, still need thongs and a hat even though I already have that stuff, haha.

just haven't met you yet

So, today, I went city with Nikkida and Carmen. Mind you, this is a momentous occasion because until now I had never been to city with friends. Except for jap excursion, but that doesn't count. HAHA, I tried to type up a lengthy blog about it but gave up, so here I present to you dot points again:
  • Uhm, we met at Glenfield at exactly 8:30 and didn't waste time waiting for anyone :D
  • Went caps, which was... interesting. I don't get the timer thing on it, it's like a RACE. I'm really noob when it comes to this...
  • Ate sushi, then spent aaages in that corner of market city. I got denim shorts from JayJays which I needed for camp. And I wanted them regardless, so yeah.
  • OH MY GOSH, at Dotti, Nikkida and I saw this chick who had the most awesome outfit... Like, blue Doc Martens (!), bright yellow skirt, navy blazer, and this brooch thing. I should've sneaked a photo, it was SO PRETTY T.T
  • We couldn't afford anything in Hype DC but they DID have pretty mirrors to take photos in... ^^



  • FUNNY MOMENT when were walking back to QVB, and there was a promotion for 'Buy 1 get 1 free' at Easway. So naturally, there was this FRICKIN' MASSIVE line of asians lining up even though there was another store on the next street.
  • Since we're cool (HAHA) we got Starbucks. According to Nikkida it makes you look rich. According to me it's the same price but everyone thinks American stuff is expensive. Got iced chocolate, which was so chocolatey. Like pure chocolate just liquidized in a cup or something, it was SO FULL ON. Anyway, I managed to finish it due to my a) continuous sipping reflex and b) the fact that I got a tall which was half filled with ice anyway.
  • Since Carmen and Nikkida either spent too much or ran out of cash, we just looked in Kinokuniya. DROOL. I saw 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar in Japanese. I really really wanted it. But it was 22 dollars, boohoo.



Also, we went into that art display section they have and the stuff was really pretty, you should see it before they switch it around again. The frame things are actually badges and earrings, they were so nice!





And and Pokemon origami book we found! 27 bucks, WHAT THE HELL!



This was some light-up tree we found in QVB. Ooh, that rhymes. It was pretty :)



Inside Sg (Sportsgirl accessories) there were really nice odd things, like lanterns / books / vintage radios / FREE MAGAZINES! :D Aah that's all I'm bothered to recount. We have to do all this again but this time buy the Caterpillar book 8)

nostalgia





I remember when I used have a bajillion of these because they taste/smell sooo good. Anyway, wanted these ones for obvious reasons (!) They really do smell like it :D And my sister stole the coke one.

I'm sorry for still not posting enough here, but this week's been pretty bad for some reason and I don't want to spread my moodiness and ruin your lives... No need to elaborate, right? Good.
