I love hearing specific songs that remind me of specific moments or times in my life.

For example the song Summertime by Thirsty Merc was on a Coke commercial in 2005. I remember watching T.V., the ad coming on, it's bloody hot and the house is completely dark except the light shining from the T.V. screen and the Christmas tree that me and my sisters decorated. It brings back even older memories of my primary school classrooms.

Everytime We Touch by Cascada. This song takes me back to 2006, when I would watch Sailor Moon religiously as me and my sisters discovered the delight of downloading. I became obsessed with Sailor Moon after my sister accidentally downloaded the Japanese, original subbed version instead of the English dub we grew up and were in love with (today I shun the dubbing). After that I researched and looked up the anime, manga, the origins and youtube Anime Music Videos (AMV). It seemed that 70% of those videos used Cascada's song, both candlelight version and the other million remixes.

Iris by Goo Goo Dolls. I can't even begin to explain the onslaught of memories that come with this. This reminds me of the time when I had a crappy, secondhand, old MP3 that could fit about 20 songs max, was also a radio and a USB. I thought it was the greatest thing ever and loved it. At that time, there were still two beds in grandmas room and I shared one bed with Sammy. I used to put Iris on repeat and listen to it to sleep. I'd wake up and listen to it again on repeat for at least half an hour before I got up. My most favourite Sailor Moon and Fruits basket AMV were to this song and I remember watching them. I remember talking to Year 6 friends about what their favourite song of all time was and declaring proudly that Iris was mine. Memories of the old layout of my house as I listened to this song everywhere.

If a song comes up with memories and little moments like these, then I'll always remember them.

This, and I swear my life on this, made me cry.

She loved the guy. She did it for him. She would’ve done anything for him. Some people are like that. Some loves are like that. Most loves are like that, from what I can see. Your heart starts to feel like an overcrowded lifeboat. You throw your pride out to keep it afloat, and your self-respect and your independence. After a while you start throwing people out—your friends, everyone you used to know. And it’s still not enough. The lifeboat is still sinking, and you know it’s going to take you down with it. I’ve seen that happen to a lot of people here. I think that’s why I’m sick of love.

It's the conversations that could save us that make us feeling like killing ourselves.

How Robin Williams reacts when you asked how his mind works

He's a known legend for his voice, humour and acting throughout the world. When asked in an interview how he can improvise brilliant material on the spot, this is what he does:

People are infuriating, both the fake and the real.

Is it crazy that I want to design my own year 12 formal dress like she did?

Day 23; Something you miss.

The feeling of having enough time. Right now, I know that it's pretty O.K. in terms of time but I miss those long periods of time where I could do anything anywhere. Of course at that time I was scared of buses and was learning my times tables.

Just a proper "holiday" time where I don't have to worry about the next day, week, month, year. I know, I know: "You're still in year 11. That's nothing. You got craploads of time and enjoy it while you can."But still. C'mon, who actually thinks that at the time?

Can't wait for the holiday period between the end of high school and the beginning of uni.

In a good way...

I think it's safe to say: I've got nothing to lose.

Day 22; Your academics

I could do better. OR CAN I? I was the "smart" girl in primary school, a class of 20 people. This gave my family a false sense of security for my future. So when I entered high school, a grade of at least 200, I didn't do as well as I did in primary school. I admit that I can be lazy and I procrastinate. But then I think it's their fault for having such high expectations and the unrealistic idea that I'll be the "smart" girl in every year and every class.

Overall right now I'm happy with my academics. That is all. =]

"I need to talk to someone-not someone, you."

Can't wait.

Dear future husband,

...I'm just saying...

When you make really good calls and no one is around to appreciate it.

Obnoxious, disrespectful Year 10 girl: Ow! Something's biting me in the ass

Me. Walking by. Silently thinking: It's called karma
I force myself to laugh every time she makes one of those degrading comments, disgusted faces and crushing remarks. Not only does it force myself to lighten up and not let her win but it pisses her off more than ever.

Day 21; How you hope your future will be like.

How anyone would want their future to be like, happy. With people who make me happy, a person who makes me happy, a place where I'm happy to be in, doing things that make me and others happy. I most definitely have specifics on the little things that I'd want: my job, my dream family etc. But if I tell you, it might not come true.
