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

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

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

A highly enjoyable Birthday Eve!

Tomorrow is my B'day! Yay!   But this isn't about tomorrow, this is about today! Which happened to be the athletics carnival at school!   So, I forgot my umbrella on the way to school and it poured, but I decided to play it optimistic and kept walking, laughing and singing to myself. "It wasn't that cold!" I said as I trudged through the rain in the middle of Winter without an umbrella or jacket... It had stopped raining when I got to school, lucky me! Next, I watched as people turned

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

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

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

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

Decisions and Dilemmas Part 2

So, I suddenly felt like being depressing, and what's more depressing than what happened next in my life!   Now where was I... Oh yeah!   Everything was practically perfect. Something I forgot to mention was that I was offered a fast track to my dream job at the time... So I had amazing friends, amazing opportunities and, truth be told, everything just felt so right.   I call this a bubble in life... This is because bubbles are perfect spheres, and really, really fragile... Just as my life

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 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,

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

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

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'

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

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

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

Decisions and Dilemmas Part 1

Okay, my first blog ever is here...   So what this first one is about, is basically telling you about what's been going on in my life since I joined here. Might be a bit long, and will be split into parts.   So when I first arrived here, I was enrolled at my old school. I had been into ponies for about 3 months already. It was my summer holidays, and I was bored. I had also found an interest in Let's Plays.   School life returned a few weeks later. I fell into a routine of Let's Plays, Sch

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

Decision and Dilemas Part 4

Where was I? Ah yes... My life less than a year ago!   So I was miserable! I had no connection to my friends, and I had no way of enjoying Ponies or Let's Players... Life has gotten better!   I moved into an apartment, and although I have to share my room with my younger brother, there are at least places we can go to get away from each other... And I don't need to go outside if I need the bathroom...   Unfortunately my old laptop broke, along with my younger brother's... Mine can still wo

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

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

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

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

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
