Sailing 2012

PicMonkey Collage

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

Just Got In…

Photo on 2012-12-27 at 13.42 #2

Just got back from sailing. 10 solid hours of sea and surf. My shoulders are now burned. -.-

WE SAW DOLPHINS!!!!! TWICE!!!!! (I’m convinced I saw them a third time… but who knows)

I will DEFO be uploading the crappy photos I got of their fins when I’m home, haha.

Well, it’s off to dinner for a hard-earned chocolate thickshake, methinks!!!

I’ll upload more soon hopefully! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tin Spaaaaaaghetti!

Okay, not the most attractive photo, but whatever! I haven’t had tin spaghetti since the last time I went sailing at Easter! I love this stuff :3

Rocking out to “Sexy and I Know It”, best way to start the day, eh? ๐Ÿ™‚

We have found an internet source. We have called it “The Dongle”, I don’t know what it’s really called, I just worship the wood it touches on the table.

Goodness the wind is high today! Crazy loud, whistling through the masts of the boats moored here. No sun, but it’s still bright outside, the sky is pretty much white bordering on grey, but it’s not cold. It’s cooler when the wind hits you, but other than that it’s pretty nice weather!

In other news, the sunburn on my nose is starting to peel… yup, I look stunning right now (Y)

Ooooh! It’s just started raining! It’s not noisy, at all… it’s so weird! Singapore rain is like golf balls of water hitting the ground pretty damn hard, here? It’s like snowflakes…

Yeah, I need to go revise now. I should blog a bit more later, we’re visiting my Godmother, we’ll be staying at hers tonight!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE EVERYONE!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wahey!

Got internet on my laptop again!!! YAY!!! As you can probably see, my sunburn isย phenomenal.

Hang on, let me show you my “best” sunburn:

Best Watch-Tan EVER!

Yeah, fabulous isn’t it?

Mhmmmm, it’s a lot redder in person.

I need to do revision, which is what I’m supposedly doing now… ๐Ÿ˜›

IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE EVE!!! I have absolutely no presents (Y)

It’s a first, I must admit. My sister has bought more things than I have for once! It’s really strange, normally I’m the one that’s easy to buy for and my mum and sister are infuriatingly impossible to shop for… but nope. Haha. I suppose it’s easy to shop for my sister though when we look through stores full of (slutty) clothes that my sister adores… Sheย loves all those teeny tiny, itty bitty clothes, all the “in style” patterns and prints. I swear I’ve never seen her wear something that her friends don’t wear. *Sigh* Not my life, not my choice.

So yeah, revision. I need to read “Warren’s Profession” still, then do my Bio, Chem, and Philo revision. IB. I hate it.

Smoothly onto the topic of hot boys…

I threw a bit of a tantrum (not a scary throw-yourself-on-the-floor-like-a-two-year-old type on, it was more of a funny jumping-up-and-down-screaming-without-making-a-sound), I’ll be honest when we walked off the boat this morning to go shopping and visit friends (where we are now, hallelujah for internet).

One of the FITTEST GUYS YOU’VE EVER SEEN walked RIGHT PAST me and our eyes met and sparks flew and then we had to keep walking and UGHHHHHHH!!!! (FYI: that’s when I started jumping up and down on the walkway), WHY DO I HAVE SUCH CRAP TIMING!!!

Didn’t stop me from checking out his cute behind… and which boat lot was his (only a few down from ours ๐Ÿ˜‰ hurhurhur), he –fingers crossed- will still be there tomorrow. We’re spending the night here at the friend’s house. I’m not friends with any of them… mum’s friends with the mum, dad’s friends with the dad, and my little sister is friends with the younger girl here. The only one my age? A guy. A cute guy. A cute guy that’s a few months older than me. A cute guy that’s a few months older than me and NOT. HOME. -.-

My timing. My luck. Why me?

*Sigh*

I’m loving staying on the boat, I’m rocking as I sit right now, boat sway.

What else? There’ll be more photos of the trip up after I get back… maybe… I’m pretty crap at uploading photos (just ask my schoolmates…)

I’ve run out of things to say… so yeah, byee! Hahaha

A photo from last night to catch you all up:

Sailing the Deep Blue Sea

You have no idea how much I’d love to post a picture for you all, but I’m still not on my laptop. Instead, I’m contenting myself by taking photos on my mum’s camera to be uploaded (most likely) when I get back.

We went sailing today, I’m too burned for words- despite POURING the sunblock on myself. *Sigh*, alabaster skin comes at a price I suppose… :/

Anyway, absolutely loved it! Hot sun, high winds, a few swells (not enough in my opinion), tilling the boat in every which direction I wanted, and of course there’s manning the riggings and folding the gib when you’re done.

Bought and ate an entire bag of cherries (hey, don’t give me that look! Singapore is great and all but the fruit there is nothing compared to pretty much everywhere else on Earth. -.-

So yah. OH! And I finished “Nevermore”! Yup, yup, yup. Surprisingly quick read, good to know I haven’t lost my knack for devouring books at a mile a minute! (TAKETHAT IB!!!!)

Not too bad! The ending… yeah. Hahaha, I won’t spoil it for those of you that haven’t read it yet! But if you haven’t even heard of it… READ “MAXIMUM RIDE” PEOPLE!! It’s soooo awesome! Action, humour, romance, action, action, action. If you like fights to the death and birdkids GRAB YOURSELF A COPY NOW! The first one is called: “The Angel Experiment”, I started reading these books years ago and they’re among one of my all time favourite series’!!

What else. Apparently the weather isn’t supposed to be good over the next few days and we’re DEFINATELY going to someone’s house tomorrow so I MIGHT be able to either steal their computer OR their internet for a few minutes to post for you all! ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, on a sadder note (for me at least), as I have now finished all my Christmas Reading (yes, only one book or I’d never pass my exams), I must now work on my revision. Talk about a bummer. But the New Year is fast approaching and I simply can’t stick my head in the sand about it anymore, I need to pass IB to get to Greece in the first place, so REVISION IT IS!

That’s all for now my friends! It’s about 20 to 11 at night here in New Zealand so I need to get off the computer. Hopefully will post again tomorrow!! ๐Ÿ˜€
