Twenty. Have you ever had a near-death experience?

I've had way too many hit by a car experiences. 90% my fault. Um apart from that, I haven't had anything too serious. I've fallen down stairs which resulted in a sprained ankle. And I've also knocked my head against concrete pretty hard after falling off a trampoline but that only gave me a massive ugle scab on my forehead.

PhonePics from today






Not going to lie though, it was a shit day. Family problems. Image 3 was from the park around 7 or 8ish when I just walked out of the house without anyone knowing.

Eighteen. What was the first concert/show you attended?

I've only been to two concerts. My first one was in 2008 I think. It was a Backstreet Boys concert. I went with my sisters, family friend and my sisters best friend. He was a bigger fan than all of us, which is a great achievement because the Backstreet Boys was one of the biggest parts of my childhood.

It was awesome. I'm going to another Backstreet Boys concert concert this year combined with The New Kids on the Block. Should be freaking epic.

I literally need everything from here:

Seventeen. What is your favorite flower?

At the moment?
Forget-me-nots. They're adorable and pretty.

The stereotypical ones that I like are roses (red) and lillies (Madonna and pond ones)

Bought a new camera yesterday!

Along with the old school one I used for my portfolio shots, my red Holga 135 and black Holga 135BC (all film cameras), I got a very very Pink Slim Angle Wide-Angle Camera online. Can't for it to come in 1-4weeks!

http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/10/how-to-style-a-hair-bow.html

2nd attempt turned out better. I need a bigger hairband for a full hair bow because my hair is too thick ==. On that note. My hair is long. Like... reaches the top of my butt long. I need a haircut.

Sixteen. What is your favorite color?

Navy blue, cobalt blue and that indescribable perfect shade of grey

A little something of beauty to brighten up a girls day


I have fallen in love with this website and all it's indie-ness, whether they're aiming to be indie or not. Just a lot of cute things to make your home, day and life a little more beautiful. I've already attempted 3 of the hair tutorials and got a semi-decent hair bow.





For more awesomeness, go to the about page (button located at top, took me a while to find it. I don't know if that's because I'm a retard or just a general thing...) and all the people who contribute to the blog have their own blogs. Click them out!

I found this blog through the amazing Dianna Argon who plays Quinn on Glee. She has an adorable website which makes me love her more and magnifies her perfection.

Fifteen. What are your career goals?

I don't have any specifics right now. A bout a billion people have asked and I just reply with a shrug or "No freaking idea". 

I just want to do something I'm passionate about. Or something I at least enjoy doing. That's why I chose the subjects I chose, because I like them. I don't want to do something I don't want to do when I have a choice. This is also why I hate the scaling system. It discourages people who want to do what they love but are scaled down for it. Which leads to not receiving as many opportunities as someone who did sciences and math etc. Not that I have anything against those people.

Um so ideal job would be fun, creative and helps a lot of people. Which isn't really helpful. Ideas?

I need to be part of something like this one day.

We're constantly planning and preparing for the future. Go to school to get a good job. Get a good job to have enough money for when you're old. When you're old, you don't have enough time to spend it on all the things you could have when you were younger. And then we die.

Fourteen. Do you believe in fate/destiny?

To certain extents.

The idealist in me wants to believe in destiny and fate. I can understand why people don't like the idea that everything was pre-determined or something. I get that. But I don't mind it. For me, it kind of makes sense.

I kind of believe that we all have a certain purpose in life, maybe more than one. For someone it might be to achieve major change, for others it might just be to help that person make the change. Or something like that. The road or the way we get to that goal can be up to us; e.g. easy way, hard way, long time, short time etc.

This all ties in with my other belief that everything happens for a greater reason.

Another weird random theory/idea I have has to do with time travel. I don't know why. BUT, there is a future, and the future us did the exact stuff present us to get to that point. But then I guess it's kind of contradictory how I like the idea of infinite alternate realities exist where every moment, choice, second made can have endless possible outcomes and there are other dimensions or something where the different possibilities and results occurred. I don't know if I'm making sense....

Fate, yes I believe in fate. Destiny is kind of flexible and weird in my book....

By the way

Happy New Year. 2012. May we survive, learn and live.

Thirteen. What are you listening to right now?

Hometown Glory - Adele

Play count: 87

Adele is too amazing for words. I think I discovered her music from Greys Anatomy or something in 2008. I only had a couple of her songs by then but I was mainly obsessed with this, Chasing Pavements and Daydreamer.

I got her live concert DVD and her new album 21 from Michelle and Jason for Christmas this year. On Christmas day Adele and Michael Buble were blasting from our speakers while the whole family got into cooking and cleaning. It was pretty awesome. I also got shoes, money and Breakfast At Tiffany's from Sammy and Damo.

Hometown Glory is probably my most favourite Adele song out of her two albums. She's amazing live, swears like a sailor and is just so down to earth. I would marry her. Just saying.

For some reason, cancer is mentioned a lot in the following post. Not in an offensive way. At least, I don't think so...

I'm sorry, this might come across as bitchy, close minded and insulting but seriously, I'm really sick of status' or messages that have following two main parts to it:

  1. The story/quote
  2. The reblog
On facebook, youtube, whatever allows people to type whatever the hell they want, you might encounter the following tales:
  • A little girls perspective on how she died in a car accident when she was hit by a drunk driver yet she was being a good girl and sober.
  • A foetus' perspective about how it was aborted
  • A random persons perspective of their mother
  • A tale about someone/something being wronged, tortured, killed etc.
  • Preaching religion
  • And more
Then after the little tale or something, there'd be a message about reblogging or commenting the same message again if you're against cancer, drink driving, abortion, how much they love their mum, if they have a heart, if you're in this religion and you're not ashamed/proud of it.

With all due respect, to the second last dot point, go for it, got nothing against it and nothing against your point of view. It's just the last part that gets me. "If you're truly against this" or "If you support this/are proud of this, you'll reblog, repost this"

What the hell? Really? To prove that I love my mum, I have to copy and paste a cliche, badly written message all over the internet? My mum doesn't even know how to use the computer, what will she care if I do this or not? How about this: get off the internet and help her out or give her a freaking hug instead of declaring to strangers that you love your mum, because it does nothing. 

That is a hella stupid and pointless way to declare something. No one cares. And the people who do copy and paste it or like the status on facebook (etc.) probably are doing it only to not feel bad about not copying and pasting it or to not look like a douchebag who supports cancer.

I don't know if this justifies why these things piss me off. I just see them everywhere and just go: "Really?.....Really?....No."

It's a badly dressed up version of chain mail spam. If you don't send this to people the Ring girl will kill you in your sleep while puppies and kittens die unjustly because you didn't. Or: if you send this to at least a certain amount of people, money will freaking rain from the sky, global warming will end, world hunger and inequality will not exist and cancer will be cured.

And by the way of course I'm against cancer, etc. Who the hell supports cancer?
