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

Why I hate stress and how it just helped me? What?

So, I hate all the stresses in my life. Particularly, the ones which really shouldn't be there... Like my family, not allowing me space for myself, pressuring me to get high marks in school, not letting me be me... No, seriously. I can't sing without being yelled at, I can't proudly show my drawings (which I've been getting better and better at) without being shot down. Maybe if they weren't so negative I might be doing better! I'd have a better mindset- Full of determination and enthusiam for m

Why I don't seem to be doing well, but I really am.

I have many talents: Drawing, Singing, Playing Video-Games, Absorbing Knowledge.   And I'm the middle child in my family! Yay! The only reason I can see that I ever got any attention is because I'm the only girl out of 3!   But there is a minor problem... My younger brother gets nearly straight A's while I seem to struggle to pass at all. I live in his shadow. He's not even trying and getting A's, whilst I work my little ass off to pass my subjects! He's going to get a letter from the princi

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

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

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

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

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

The school system sucks...

Does anyone else think so?   I've been to 2 schools: A private school and a public school. However, they both had strict guidelines from the government on how to teach kids, and it involved standardisation   Ah, good old fashioned standardised systems, making conformity essential. The other option? Having people learning at different rates, and organising them as such so that they can each excell! Asking them what they want to do and tailoring their education!

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

Stuff on my mind

There's a lot. 1. Zoey and Rythian.   To those that don't know these 2, they're part of the Yogscast. If you don't know who the Yogscast are, you live in a hole.   Rythian is from the Netherlands. Zoey is from the UK. Together, they've created an epic story! With revenge, romance, deaths, betrayal, war... And a Dinosaur! And it's all played out with Minecraft Mods. Here's the best bit. They're acting as their characters, so none of it is real. Everyone in the Yogscast are friends and simply

Social Stigmas- my opinion

Wikipedia say:   Social stigma is the extreme disapproval of (or discontent with) a person on socially characteristic grounds that are perceived, and serve to distinguish them, from other members of a society. Stigma may then be affixed to such a person, by the greater society, who differs from their cultural norms.   Most of us here are victims of a social stigma. Greater society has formed us all according to their preconceptions of manliness, femininity and adulthood. These preconceptions

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

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

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

Nintendo, why are you so good at distracting me!

So I realized I haven't been on at all for a few days. Figured I'd explain why.   1. I'm at my dad's and he has 1 computer to share between 3 kids. (me and my brothers) 2. Nintendo   Why I'm actually in a good mood: I've nearly gotten 100% in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. I just need to beat the final boss and I'm done. It will be the first time I've ever gotten 100% in a game, and the first time I've completed this particular game. That's right, I've never beaten the final boss, but

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

My thoughts on Equestria Girls now

I might as well tell you "I told you so" now... Why? Because the thing looks even better now that a second trailer has been released!   Also, spoilers. This blog post will contain lots of spoilers. I'm not even gonna mark them because I've warned you. There is no way I can discuss the second trailer without spoilers so, here goes.   Well, Twilight has her crown stolen in the middle of the night by what appears to be the previous student of Princess Celestia herself, Sunset Shimmer, Unicorn

My personality type and what it has to do with how I act.

ISNP that is my personality type: You can find the test, the personality types of other users, and which pony it correlates to here: http://mlpforums.com/topic/1970-mbti-personality-test/   A quick overview on what the personality types are and what they're composed of.   Firstly you can be an Extrovert or an Introvert. Now you might think this means "Oh, extrovert means being social and introvert means being antisocial/shy" Well, you're right, and wrong. It really determines where you get

My opinions on MLP stuff

So, some people may be aware of where I stand on 2 grounds regarding MLP: Alicorn Princess Twilight Sparkle and Equestria Girls   However, I figured it might be nice to put out a 1000 character blog post on it, allowing people to find my opinions if they so choose to.   In regards to Alicorn Princess Twilight Sparkle, I'm okay with it, and always have been. I guess I still have something instilled in me from my childhood of G3, cause I'm pretty good at "just going along with it" and not rea

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

Magic

I am not talking about the magic in fantasy. I'm talking about the magic that touches all of us! The magic present in the real world! The innate magic of beauty and love.   Stars are beautiful. Tiny flecks of light scattered across a deep indigo sky. There's something magical about just staring up into them. We are filled with awe, passion, inspiration or hope when we see them. But it isn't always like this for people.   I was once afraid of the night sky, afraid of the stars, the moon, and

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

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

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
