I have a lot of problems with society... So here's another one...

So... I recently watched the Lego Movie... It was fun... I guess?   But I went online to listen to Everything is Awesome the major song in the movie, because I liked it, and, in the comments, someone noted that this is the villain song of the movie.   So, I wondered what about it made it evil...   People went on to say things that opened my eyes to something...   "This song basically tells the kids that they should aspire to be part of a team... It's so obviously the villain song!"   T

I'm back! Again!

I know, I keep disappearing and reappearing at random, but that's just because I've been busy.   But, I'm back with a few new things.   1. avatar (if you hadn't noticed) 2. signature 3. Anxiety, which I will get into in another post. Because it's a thing that I have! I've had it for ages, it's just been diagnosed this year... 4. Slytherin. I am one. deal with it. 5. Books! Because I read some! And there's a library in walking distance, so I can read so many more! And I bought TFiOS and

How many fandoms is that now?

Oh dear... That's... Um... Gee...   How about I list them?   Whovians (new whovians specifically) Bros (a group which I despised last year... Evidence that a few bad eggs can ruin the reputation of a group) Bronies (2 years now!) Pokefan (Or whatever they're calling us) Yognaught, Sapling and Dreamer (Yogscast, Inthelittlewood and Kaeyi Dream!) Eleven (Area 11, the band. Could have put them with the above group though)   And I'm relatively active in all of them now. I'm playing Pokemo

When you make all of time and space your backyard, what do you have?

"A backyard"   Well, you can certainly tell what I've been watching lately. If you didn't know, that was a quote from Doctor who, but it is surprisingly relevant to what I have to say.   Most of you should know by now that I am Australian, and one of the little things that Australians do? They call almost the entirety of the country their "backyard." That includes myself.   I'm 17 years old. I've traveled around. I've seen baby turtles in a race for survival. I've had kangaroos on my fron

A whole new (Minecraft) world!

So, Minecraft is in 1.7.2, and, for about the first time ever, I decided that I would play on Easy and not change it. Thus far, I've died twice to Skeletons, had a Creeper blow up my front door (I didn't die) and fished up a stick. On the other hand, my base is set up between a Plains, a Savannah and an Ocean, there is a village nearby which I've gotten melons from and there's also a desert, a forest and a darkwood nearby. Essentially, I have 4 different trees, lots of flowers, melons, carrots,

How well do I really know pokemon?

So, I thought I was good at pokemon, but upon attempting to name each and every pokemon, I failed miserably. I did it gen by gen, and didn't do the newest (gen 6, kalos region) because I know very little about the pokemon there. I found a challenge on sporcle to name all the pokemon from gen 1. And then found one for gen 2 and so on.   You want to know the results?   Well, I have screenshots. Miserable screenshots detailing how much I fail.   So, let's get started shall we? I'm putting the

The Stanley Parable and the odd psychological test

I've watched so many people play the game... Which, by the way, is available on steam. If you want it.   This blog will contain unmarked spoilers, as without them it's kinda hard to explain the psychological oddities I've found. Also, I have no idea how to mark them as spoilers. So, a few things I've noticed in all the let's plays of it.   But first, if you haven't played it yet, and you want to save every experience for yourself, please do. Also, if you've played it before reading onward

I'm so nervousited

Fact: I have less than 6 weeks until I graduate from High School and leave for University... Which is near my dad's apartment, so I'm staying there.   And I'm scared. I'm about to be flung out of school and into the real world. I have to get a job, and I'm going to be off to University next year, if not the year after. And, you know, I gotta do all the other stuff that comes with being an adult. Tax returns, credit cards (although I'm probably not going to get one yet) and more...   I have

Beyond Sibling Rivalry

Gah! My younger brother is the worst! After 3 days of keeping internet usage down, because we were kinda close to our download limit, my younger brother gave up and started splurging. So, in the space of 2 days, the data usage went from 2 Gigabytes a day to over 10! Our limit for the month is 200, but 5 days ago, we'd somehow managed to get to 160, probably because both my brother and I are on holidays, and love YouTube and the internet. Now, there are 5 days left, and we have no broadband inte

My Younger Brother and his Internet Dilemma

Oh how I hate my younger brother. He's the bane of my existence, that he is. He's rarely done me any good, particularly with how great I am to him. He eats all the food in the house, he uses all the internet and he's always bugging me about space, like as if he doesn't have enough when I have less than him!   And it's his fault I'm now in a situation that I can't do flippin anything on the internet!   We've been limited to 3 hours of 360p YouTube, but he's a quality hog (refusing to watch an

Reason, Symptom, Link or Coincidence? Violence and Video Games

I've heard it before. Mass murderers played video-game. Sandy Hook Massacre? Check. That one in Norway a while ago? Yeah, that one too.   Yes, they played video games. That's fact I cannot deny. But there's a limit to what you can infer from that.   So you can imagine my annoyance when today I saw this: http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/student-found-weapons-orange-co-elementary-school/nZ8DK/?ecmp=wftv_social_201312470064   So, a kid played Minecraft and took a gun, hammer and knife to

So what was that about prom dress stress?

So, my mum took me out shopping for my prom dress today. I can't say I was looking forward to it, but I knew it had to be done. Prom is in 7 weeks, so we needed it sorted, ASAP.   So, we went to a local shop, and we looked at the dresses there. None of them quite suited my taste, but the shop assistant referred us to the store in town, under the same brand-name, because I don't live in town, just near it.   There, I spotted a dress which matched what I was looking for, except the color was o

The Giveaway

So, I'm on a site called Chicken Smoothie.   It has these amazing adoptable pets, along with a forums and their Oekaki boards. So, I originally got into this site a few years ago. Before MLP:FiM became a thing. And I fell in love with the pets. Eventually, I branched out to the forums and started drawing on the Oekaki boards.   Nowadays, I'm less about the pets. I'm still going to be there, as it's now my platform for digital art. They have a program called Chibipaint, which is better than

My Bucket List

I'm not dying, I'm still young... Why would I need a bucket list? I don't... But there are things I want to do in my lifetime. Now, these aren't necessarily easy tasks, nor may they quick to achieve. Most of these, however, aren't all that risky or thrill seeking. In fact, many of these things are quite safe, although not easy things to do.   So, let's get onto my list!   1. Create a Senbazuru (Thousand Paper Cranes) 2. Go to a Convention (Gaming or Ponies, either would be awesome!) 3. Tra

Weekends

2 amazing weekends in a row... This is awesome!   I know, this one isn't done yet, but there's no-one around to disturb my peace... I'll get back to that later.   So, last weekend was my best friend's birthday party! I shall separate it into parts so that you don't get confused...   I'll just give all of us really weird names which aren't our own so that you don't know who we are...   Skye (me), Wendy (My best friend who's birthday we were celebrating), Hazel, Zoe, Jade, Casey (My best f

A sparkling example of an accidental innuendo

Just a little tale of what happened to me in class today...   Firstly, to ensure this makes sense, I must tell you something:   I have a minor crush on the lead singer of Area 11. His stage name is Sparkles* and my best friend knows I like him. Which is what caused this amusing situation.   So for a senior project kind of thing, for my home economics class, we each make a patch and it gets stitched together into a quilt-like thing.   So, I go about drawing a few things on mine before usi

A very bad week to come...

Except for the weekend. That's going to be awesome.   So, tomorrow is the QCS test. Stands for Queensland Core Skills test. It tests our intellectual skills like analysing, evaluating, creating, understanding... And it's hard. It doesn't affect our grades though. No, it only pits us against every other student in the state to help rank the schools. Which helps rank us at the end of the day.   So, after this, our grades, along with our subject's ranking in comparison to others and our school'

Positively Curious Confidence

A curious past few days I've had. It was great, but I still don't fully understand why...   Maybe I should start at the beginning of it all. I was on YouTube, chilling, watching the Yogscast. I posted a witty comment on one Yogscast Kim's videos.   This one:   She responded. Cue minor freakout/squeeing/fangirling/WHATEVER. I haven't replied, for fear of sounding like just another fan who's overreacting to her. So I've kept quiet. But I was grinning like a madman all night and into t

A journey of pointless wonder

I just got back from shopping. Not that I bought anything. The only thing we got was another book from the cherub series from my younger brother. We were supposed to be getting new shoes, but all the shoe stores were closed.   For added annoyance, I was in the middle of watching an episode of Tengen Toppa Gurren Langa, when I wasn't so much asked as ordered to go shopping.   I ranted about my name a bit. I guess I can tell you my IRL name, because it's so common... Seriously... I happene

Time alone and best friends

I had some today. Because my mom had to work and my brother decided he wasn't going to disturb me. I've been on my computer 9 hours now. Mostly watching YouTube videos.   Now my mom is home and is yelling at us for not doing the chores she think we should do automatically. Every weekend. Without messing up once. Despite the fact that we've only ever done all our chores once. She complains, every time. This is, in part, because she's stressed with work, because she cooks, because she puts on th

For the Future! Will I ever escape Australia?

My plans! Oh my gosh! You guys need to know my plans! I need to tell you! Why? I don't know...   Well, firstly, I'm going to be graduating from high school in November, which will be awesome. To those not familiar with the school system in Australia, we graduate in November, Queensland a week before everyone else. Most people then go to "Schoolies" something I'm not going to. It's essentially a massive party. Also, don't go to any popular holiday destinations during this time, there will be te

Gonna watch Anime! also stress again...

That title sounds like the title of a really bad movie...   So, let's get this icky stuff out of the way first... It's apparent that my attempts to create peace didn't work out so well... Maybe once I get my formal dress (something my mom is apparently stressing about) things will get better. Can't wait till the end of the year though! I graduate in November (I am Australian!) and so, I will be setting off for greener pastures! Aka, my dad's apartment in Brisbane. And I'll have to deal with a

Family Blues and Peace at last

Life,illogical at the best of times, down right confusing at the worst.   Also, I've taken it upon myself to do more chores around the house, and try and say "Thank you" more often, along with "Please"   Why? Because my mom doesn't think my brother and I show her enough respect. Because she's sick of us not doing the chores. Because she's been really stressed with work, and my brother and I aren't making her life any easier. Because her stress is stressing me out.   So, by doing more work,

Yoggy Dreams...

I don't normally blog more than once a day, but this one's much more upbeat and random... It's also completely off topic from my other one.   Okay, I think I've been watching way too much Yogscast lately. I've had 5 dreams about them in the past 2 weeks. That's all the dreams I've had in that space of time.   The first, I was commander of a squadron, and we were killing stuff in a mountain fortress, and then there was a nuke, and an avalanche... And then Duncan and I dug out Lewis, Simon app

When you don't get involved...

My mum... She just raged at my younger brother... She was saying things about how we kids don't respect her, and that "she has to do everything" She doesn't do everything. She expects so much of me and my brother. We're teenagers! We're in that stage where we won't do everything we're told but we're not quite responsible enough to do what we need to. I think the stress of work is really getting to her. She wasn't like this before we moved, before she got this job.   Well, I got up and headed
