Kick Starting 2013 the Right Way…



It’s the second day of 2013… why the hell am I back in school already? Freaking IB revision.

Oh well, I’m here with two of my top Asians:


Ugh I’m so tired… it’s evident. Whatever. Mum was getting on my nerves so I hightailed it to school to prevent a fight so early in the new year.

I am procrastinating like hell, while at the same time panicking about how quickly the mocks are racing towards me. I feel so unprepared, which gives me the motivation to want to revise. I sit in front of my laptop and my will to live anymore flees and I wind up doing NAAA-TING!

So yeah, I’m currently working on a crappy short story. Five chapters long from four different perspectives. It’s doing my head in to make them all curtail into each other.

But never fear, I’m meeting a friend for lunch in about an hour so I won’t have to think about that for much longer either!



Happy New Year Everyone! :)


^You can semi-see my awful, awful sunburn… yikes o.O

Hi everyone, just wishing you all a Happy New Year and a wonderful 2013!

I hope you all keep your resolutions (for a few weeks at least haha)- I’ve yet to make mine beyond “pass exams with 40/45” and “go to Greece”… yeah. Haha.

May the best of last year be the worst you have to deal with this year! (It makes sense in my head… I hope it translates for you guys :P)

2013 has finally arrived. We’ve survived the end of the world and all that jazz so let’s celebrate life all year long! 😀

Spent today with my mother and sister, we played ‘Just Dance 3’ (owned that shit man, haha) and drank orange juice (<– it’s a big deal, I haven’t had OJ for a very, very long time!) and finished it all off by watching “The Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2012”. Hilarious as ever!

So yeah, I hope life goes swimmingly for everyone! May all your (good) wishes come true and all your goals be achieved!

That’s all from me until tomorrow!




Wow. What a night. So glad I spent New Years party hopping (EEEEEEEE!!) with my girlies. Seeing as this is my last New Years before I graduate, I reckon I spent it pretty damn well.

I feel so icky though haha. The more I wake up the better I feel but I still have to face the rest of today on very, very little sleep.

Aaaaaaaaaaand… we have to hide the McDonalds somewhere so we can smuggle it into the bin without my mum noticing.

I’m going to go pig out now (again) on some croissants and pain au chocolats to celebrate the NEW YEAR!!!!


2013 is my first year of “officially” being an adult. I graduate this year and with any luck I’ll be going to Greece this year and I ALSO will be applying to University. Scurry Shit, haha.

Anyway, I genuinely do wish that you all have a wonderful New Year. Every cloud has a silver lining. Don’t give up, yada yada yada! 🙂

YAY 2013!!


New Year! Welcome 2013!


So I had no curfew tonight. I know. ME!

So it’s 4:45am and we’ve just walked in from the parties. What started as 2 parties quickly turned into another invite then back to the original party.

I’ve had SO MUCH FUN!



Buiface, Chimmercharlie and I are all going to order food (probably Maccers) and then go to bed. What an awesome way to start 2013!!

G’night/morning! 😀

Last Day of 2012!

Last Day of 2012!

Okay, once again, not my best photo, but I just couldn’t NOT upload. I genuinely haven’t woken up feeling THIS excited in SO LONG!!

Maybe because next year everything I’ve come to know changes irrevocably. I actually begin adulthood next year and that is overwhelmingly terrifying and awesomely exciting!



Sailing 2012

It dawns on me, now that we’ve come in from our last day of sailing, that this is the last time I’ll be sailing until 2013. Sounds so far away…

I’m more burned than ever, but I’ve loved every hour we’ve spent at sea. I’ve finally just got the hang of the ropes and knots- mind you I’ve lost most of the skin from my palms in doing so… haha.

It’s been sunny and rainy and hot and cold and so very, very good.

Now, all the sheets and sails are away. The ropes are tidy and all that’s left to do is pack for the flight tomorrow.

Didn’t see any dolphins today, just penguins 🙂

My boat shoes have officially fallen to pieces, I’ve been trailing bits of sun-faded purple rubber all over the boat as I’ve run about to secure the mooring lines and all that.

Nothing much else to say. I’m covered in salt- feel a bit like the “stalwart Odysseus”, except, not scaring poor royal maids with my wild nakedness, nor pissing off the gods for blinding their sons… Think I might head for an early shower to cool off the burns to be honest. I have no clue what to wear home that won’t chafe the burns while at the same time keeping me warm… Gah. Clothes. Why.

I have done NADA revision. All that “focus” has vanished and I have barely anything done. Well, guess what I’m going to be doing on the flight home!! Eeesh. What fun. -.-

Well, I have gone a bit camera crazy so here are a lot more photos, enjoy!

Time to Prepare

Time to Prepare

Just chilling… (rocking out to k-pop more like it), mentally preparing for tomorrow. Going to semi-babysit the three kids from dinner the other night in the morning. We’re going to be icing sugar cookies that my sister, mum and I prepared tonight.

I leave for New Zealand so soon! Yikes! Which means revision is in order… I *really* need to continue my notes, but so many people want to hang out and this is my last Christmas Holiday while I’m at my school and it’s so hard to even CONSIDER being focused, but this holiday is so small and we have mocks as soon as we’re back and I need to buck up and be an adult…

…but I want to have fun and hang out with my friends 😦

I’m going out tomorrow, revising in the evening. Monday is family Christmas Shopping in the morning and working in the evening, Tuesday is working, Wednesday is going out, then Thursday we leave in the morning. Ugh.

Not back until 29th of December…

I will try my best to upload daily for you all, but I apologise in advance if I have no internet access…

I can’t believe it’s nearly 2013!!! (That is if we don’t all die on the 21st- haha? I don’t go in for all that blah…)

Greece is so close I can smell the briny air and taste the kalamata olives, feel the hot sun on my skin and the dry breeze in my hair… *sigh*, so close yet so far. Have to do exams and graduate first…

Just a shout out to the victims and families of the victims of the Connecticut Shooting today, R.I.P., it’s a crazy world we live in.

As the philosopher Russell once said:

“It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.”

Wise words. It’s sad that children should have to pay the price for lunatics like Adam Lanza.

No more of the sad talk though, appreciate life and family people! Christmas is only 10 days away!
