Wow. So, that last entry was a bit... heavy.
I didn't actually remember writing that until I noticed it just then. Oh well.
SO, Emily the foxy-Fox and I are gearing up to depart on Monday, and I am, I believe the technical term is FREAKING OUT. I feel like I haven't got anything sorted. I've still got to do my tax returns, and I leave for Newcastle on Friday. That's less than TWO DAYS!
But other than that, I'm pretty darn excited to be going. It'll be great to see everyone again.
Anyway, must dash. I need to get to Belconnen to meet up with Em and get Youth cards, YHA membership, a new mobile, and the Strangers with Candy Movie DVD. I have to admit, I'm most excited about the last one. Current Mood: cheerful

So, I'm on my gap year, I'm going to ANU next year, hopefully back to the Ink-land in September and last year was choc-full of college-y goodness. Um... far too much to recap effectively. Sorry.
I've recently been employed by KFC. Yay me. I
will have to borrow a little over several thousand dollars from the parental figures if I am ever going to make it overseas.
Emotionally, I'm kind of fucked up right now. I don't know how I am, how I feel. About... anything. Everything, really. I just feel... wrong. Really really wrong. And I get that it's probably hormones, I get that I'm probably just going through a late teenage phase. I still feel like shit.
I want so much. And I want nothing that I can have. I want everything, I want people to love me, to need me, to adore me. I want this fucking black pit in my intestines to leave me, and I need it to stay, because I'm terrified it's what I am and I can't lose that, if that's all there is. I want to know what I am. I want, I want. I want to feel something, and know that it's worthwhile, and feel like it's worth it for more than an hour. I want to feel remorse, and not self-loathing. I want to have will-power, and not punishment after the fact. I want too much.
Fuck this shit. I can't...
Fuck it. Current Mood: Fucked

Well, I've 3 weeks to go till I'm back in Aussie-land with all my Aussie-landians and I'll have to re-learn to use words like pants, heater, and stockings, instead of trousers, radiator and tights. 'Twill be difficult, but I'll manage. It's really exciting though. Exceedingly daunting and a little sad, too. I am going to miss all my penguins, but I'm not sure they'll miss me all that much. Actually, maybe Jo will. See, Jo didn't really have anyone when I came, so, as I didn't either, we kinda stuck to each other. But now she doesn't believe that when I leave she will be able to stick to anyone else. Which is total rubbish, she just has to put herself out there... However, Jo is a little... paranoid about putting herself out there. Which is sad, as she really is a wonderful friend, and I would hate for her to be anything less than happy with her social situation.
A whole heap has happened over the past 9 months. I finished school here for one thing. I got my results last Thursday. Um... not too good. I'm not going to say it here, anyway. I just hope it can help me to get into Bundah. Now that I am almost certain that I'm going into year twelve, I really want to go to Bundah, as most of my Aussie peeps are there, even if they as a whole have disintegrated, which I fully expected to happen when I left.
Movies! Harry Potter came out a little while ago, which I'm sure everyone is very much aware of. As always, sarahtales
wrote a wonderful parody of it, which I pissed myself reading. Here is a Handy-Dandy link! http://mistful.livejournal.com/102180.html#cutid1
. I urge everyone to read it. I’ve just recently gone to see the movie “Hairspray” as well. I thought I would hate it, but I was smiling the whole way through. Tracy/Link is my new OTP. And … well… I kinda think Link was cute. Or rather, I think he was the Hottest Hot 60’s boy I have ever seen!
And this is weird, because I don’t think that Zac Effron is hot. I don't even really like him as a person When I saw him in High School Musical, with that hair, he just looked… Disney. Which is not my type. Too boy band-esque. But as Link… jeez… it could have been a horror flick with the amount I was squirming in my seat. It’s the Hair. It really is the hair and it makes ALL the difference. It sets of his eyes, and shows off those lovely cheekbones. *sigh* Okay, I’ll give you two piccies to illustrate my point:
Bleagh, no, he disturbs me here.
But here, yes... Yes, I could get used ot that VERY quickly.
And he could ACT! I was shocked! The boy could actually act! Continuing on movies, I’m being forced into going to “Knocked Up” with Jo on Tuesday. Fun. Well, we’re also going to lunch at Frankie and Benny’s. Fun!
Books now? Yeah. Obviously Harry Potter has come out. The final instalment. Again, sarahtales
wrote a delightful review of the final book, and most of what she said echoed my own thoughts. I cried like a baby all the way throughout the book. I’m lazy and will let the review do the rest of my talking for me. Here is another Handy-Dandy link! http://mistful.livejournal.com/102591.html#cutid1
I've been travelling heaps in the past month. At the beginning of August we went on a road trip, up to York, through the Yorkshire dales to the lakes district, then to Edinburgh (where we saw TRIPOD!!!!! AWESOME!!!), past Blackpool to Liverpool, and finally through Snowdonia National Preserve in Wales. ‘Twas all pretty awesome, but I think my favourite place was York. We walked all around the city walls, and it was just really lovely.
Anyway, last week we went to Paris. Actually, we only got back two days ago. That was pretty awesome. I'd been to Paris when we travelled around Europe with my Dad in 2000, but I mainly remembered it as grey and boring, ‘cause we went in winter. But its summer here now, so it was so sunny that I had a seizure of English-ness and got severely sunburnt. But ‘twas still fun all the same. We went up on the Arch de Triumph on our first day, and we had drinks in a cafe right net to it. Later on we found a postcard taken from EXACLTY the spot we were sitting. So, of course, we got it, and it's now on the postcard-pillar in our kitchen.
We went on a boat cruise up and down the river, and it started when it was light, so we went up the river and we could still see. But by the time we went down the river, it was dark, and everything was lit up. The Eiffel tower went all Shpingally-Shpangally! It was very cool. We ate out at restaurants every night because it is so much cheaper than Ink-land. Then on the last day we went to Belgium to see the Menin Gate. ‘Twas all very sobering.
Anyway, 'tis all from me now! Current Mood: accomplished

I went into this really hard debating comp last night, and I was really stressing out about it, even more so when I saw the opposition. They were fucking brilliant. And they were really nice too. Anyway, out of six teams, only three were to go through to the next round. We were great. It was the most enjoyable debate I have ever participated in. And I could rebut everything they said! It was like the words were shimering in front of my eyes! But when the results were read out, the first name that was read out was our opponants. I didn't mind because I'd had such a great time and the opposition were very good, and very nice. But then the second name was read out and it was us! YAY!!! Apparently, it wasn't out of who won in each debate, it was who were the best teams who spoke. I wish they'd read out the results of the individual debates though. So, the next round is in January, and I'll gety to see the opposition again! YAY! They were really cool... And I got home realy late, cos the competition wasin Birmingham. Anyway, all in all, Best. Debate. EVAR.
In other news, I'm going to see a play next Tuesday. The Winter's tale, or something like that. I'm looking forward to it.

|Wednesday morning blues.
I remember a time when I would wait for Wednesdays with barely contained (and in some instances, not contained) excitement. Today, however, has destroyed those memories once and for all. I got to school late, I left my bag on the bus (making several homework-owed teachers rather unhappy, to say the least), I think I've lost my clarinet (which means I can't have clarinet with my awesome teacher), and I have a LONG day to look foward to (I don't get home till 8 tonight).
I MISS MY WEDNESDAYS!!!!!!!!!!! Current Mood: crappy

Weeeee! Muse! M'kay, tis the first time I've used an LJ cut, so I'm going to do all of my entry. Oh, also, there might be a few spoilers for Pirates of the Carribean. I dunno, I haven't decided yet.( Read more...Collapse ) Current Mood: hyper

Anyway. I did say I'd be back on Teusday. But they let me in the computer rooms, the FOOLS! SO...now I'm bored and will fill this space with a recent email I sent to my dad.
"I know I've already replied to this, but I just need to say that the interminable net (inter-net, geddit?) still isn't working at home. The guy just told us stuff we already knew (like 'You're internet's not working') and left. I think they're coming back in sometime in the next few weeks. They'd better be, cos I'm going to be finished my exams in a week, so I won't be able to go online at school until the summer holidays are over. I can't go that long without going online.
"In other news, it's actually been rather hot here, weather wise. I've started going in to school without my jumper, which is abnormal. It's actually really nice.
"I've had a lot of my exams, I've only got three left. My non-calculator maths on Monday, Chemistry on Wednesday and Physics on Friday. My Calculator maths exam went pretty well, as did my English (I have three english exams. THREE!). I completely failed my (four) German exams, but I expected that. I didn't do as well as I wanted on Biology though. That sucked, cos my teacher thought I was going to do quite well, but I know that I haven't. Shite. ...What else have I had... um... nothing. I haven't had any other exams. I have a lot less exams than everyone else, because I dropped two subjects (Music and History).
"I'm still playing clarinet. I'm really enjoying it, actually. I'm practising a lot more than I used to, but it doesn't feel like a chore anymore. My clarinet teacher says I should join the orchestra next year, and do some grades. I think I will.
"Anyway, if your email is organised so that the newest ones are at the top, you wouldn't've seen that I've sent you another email. But I have. Please only reply once you've read that one. Oh, and I won't be online till tuesday, as I can't get online on monday at school.
Yeah, so that's basically my life. Joy. I'm actually pretty happy at the moment. Well, content. Hey, that's my mood! :D
Ba-bye! Current Mood: content

SO I have ten minutes, but tis all good.
I had my German writing this morning. It went pretty well, considering I hate German writing. I also had English this afternoon, which I thoughrelly enjoyed. Dammit, how do I spell that... can I do spell check on this thing?
I am feeling decidedly weird at the moment. I think it's all that sugar I had at lunch. Mmmm...sugar...
Anyway I still don't have internet at home, and I can't go on at school on Fridays or Mondays, so I won't be back online till Tuesday. I can count!
I have a maths exam on Monday, and Maths revision tomorrow. It sucks, cos I don't actually have an exam tomorrow, but I still have to go into school. DAMN YOU MATHS GOD!!! Mmmm, but BHGB and RHGB are in my class... this might not be as unbearable as I initially anticipated...
Farewell, my peeps! Current Mood: bouncy

M'Kay. I got this LJ a while ago now, so I thought I might as well post in it. Ummmm... So...
Read any good books lately?
Okay, someone has to tell me they're reading this, or I won't post again. EVER!!!! Mwahahahahahahaaaaa!!!!
