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

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

High School and it's unneccesary drama (ages 15+)

*Mature Themes - 15+ preferably*   I think the whole idea of school is a horrific attempt at making us robots. but in this blog post, there's a few points I'd like to bring up-   Assessment Stress Loneliness Bullying Gossip Peer Pressure Emotional Warfare   Geez... That's a lot to cover... Well, better get started!   Assessment Stress: Why must we be assessed on things? Because they need to ensure we've learned these skills... But why do they have to do it in such a way as to crea

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

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

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

Adventures on a coral cay, Red Faces!

Well, here I am, about to tell you the hilarious acts of everyone but me... And my teacher who acted as MC for the night. I get performance anxiety okay! Okay, maybe it's more than performance anxiety, but I have never been to psychiatrist so I don't know just how bad whatever is plauging my mind is... Whatever it is, I'm able to function socially and mentally, so it can't be that bad...   Well that was a tangent. On with the hilarity!   We started with safety, in case anything went wrong...

Adventures on a Coral Cay, part 2!

Friday, 31st May - Sunday, 2nd June So, no-one know's me, huh? Okay... I'm a little disappointed, but relieved too...   The next few days was a bit of a blur, so it might be out of order. We were introduced to our assignments, the reason we were on the island. We separated into groups and planned our feild work. There was a walk around the island, which only took an hour, and another snorkel which I didn't get to participate in!   So uh, there was also the fish dissection, boating which was

Adventures on a Coral Cay, part 1!

This is another multi-part series entailing my life! Except it details only a week of my life... A really eventful week...   So, a bit of back story on this: Wednesday, 29th of May, 2013.   I say my farewells to you all here and hop on a barge heading to a coral cay in the afternoon. Why was I going to a coral cay? Beyond the fact that it's a coral cay and is, therefore, gorgeous that is. My school decided to take me there to do some field work! But I'll detail that later.   The barge tri

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

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! Allow people to change their a

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

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

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

Decisions and Dilemmas part 3

Part 3, only being updated because I'm feeling sick and bored...   Moving wasn't the hardest bit... I can still contact my friends, watch MLP, watch Let's Players, sleep in a decent bed in a solid building...   Oh wait... For the next few months I had to live in a caravan, with no decent internet access... And I don't have a phone...   Which basically meant I couldn't keep in touch... Anyone who knew me before I moved would have noticed my hiatus... And it wasnt' fun...   You see, I ha

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

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
