Hey, so wow. It’s been a long time since I posted anything, but sadly it’s not so much that I’ve been too busy as it is, I just can’t be bothered when I think to do it. I suppose plenty of things have happened.

I started a new job as a cleaner at these apartments round the corner from my house. We’ve got some units in Main St too, which I’ll be working at when they’re ready. After a month I quit my old job, so now I’ve only got one job. But when I quit they got me a card and chocolates and were all very nice to me, and I’m actually really going to miss everyone, especially my manager, who I spoke to regularly. One of the girls actually rushed up and hugged me at the end of my last shift and I was kind of blown away. I suppose I had been there for four years.

And now my parents are going away on holiday for the second time this year and leaving me home alone. So I’ll be here for two weeks alone, and because I don’t have my license, and because I’ve been wanting to exercise more, we’ve just bought a new bike for me. So I’ll be riding it everywhere, except the apartments because that really is just around the corner. But I’m also doing one hour’s cleaning a week for this elderly woman, who is very nice and friendly, but I’m still kind of awkward around her, that’s how I am. $25 a week from that. So I’m thinking I’ll save all my money from the apartments for university and things that are important, and the $25 a week will be to just use on more frivolous things. It certainly puts a limit on what I buy. That’s a good thing.

I went to a university Open Day the other day. I’ve decided I want to go there, it’s in Sydney. I’ll, hopefully, do a Bachelor of Arts majoring in history and minoring in creative writing. The courses look really good. However, I can’t go right now because my ATAR score was so low. I’ve got two options I’m considering; either a certificate IV course at a TAFE for a year, which I need a credit average in, or a year at any other Australian university. Depending on my marks I could be considered for the other uni and I could transfer. That’s the plan! There is a university near my town I could travel to every day, or board there, and I’ve got an okay chance of getting in there if I’m quick.

So I want to save for university, and for the next year continue working where I am. That money will go towards a move to Sydney, and towards university fees, and the experience may get me a job up there. But I’ll also be doing a barista course at TAFE, just as a back up thing. So much to do! But I do feel better having a plan.

I haven’t given up on acting. But I’m still very self-conscious and I don’t think I could do it just yet. So I’m working on my image of myself. Exercise, healthier diet. If I feel better about my appearance, I think I’ll be okay with the flaws in my personality. When I do go to the Sydney uni I’m planning to, I also want to do a short, part-time acting course at this acting school. It’ll be a crazy amount of work, but it’ll give me an idea of whether it’s something I can actually persue. If I really like it and see myself going somewhere with it, I’ll try and get into a full-time program. If that works out I can leave the uni and go to the acting school. But if it turns out it’s not for me, I’ll be able to continue at the uni and work with history and writing. Yay for fallbacks!

And really other than those rather major developments, there’s not much else happening. Nothing life-changing anyway.

Ooccoo and Poe are full grown now. Poe did turn out to be a rooster. He crows every day at 4-4:30am, and then intermittantly throughout the day, but he’s not too bad, and no complaints so far. I don’t hear him if I’m asleep, but then again, I slept through an explosion around the corner from my house once.

I’m still hooked on Supernatural, but I’ve been reading Merlin fan fictions lately. I have missed Merlin. I’ve discovered my ability to multi-ship – Merlin/Arthur as well as Merlin/Morgana. And Doctor Who’s new season has begun, Supernatural’s new season starts next month, Glee starts in a week or so, Once Upon A Time starts at the end of September, and everything’s kicking off. I also watched the first episode of Garrow’s Law last night. Not a bad show, I may consider continuing.

While my parents are away, all of my friends continue school and uni, so I won’t even have their company. Last time this led to a 12 day Apocalypse Diary. I dread to think what 2 weeks are going to do to me. Fortunately, the third week I’ll be going up to join them. I’m a little miffed at only being allowed to go for one week. Okay, I’m a lot miffed, since they had their little two-person getaway already, but my complaints have fallen on deaf ears.

Speaking of my friends, however, since I no longer see most of them, my only contact is through Facebook. Say what you like, it does come in handy when you can’t visit people regularly. In any case, two of my friends, Connor and Liam, declared the other night that they were in a relationship. For the most part we all gathered it was a joke, but they wouldn’t say ye or nay, and considering it was possible if unlikely that it wasn’t a joke, everyone spent the next 24 hours in a state of confusion, trying to uncover the truth.

Oh God I never thought I’d have the opportunity to use that gif. Never. Thanks guys, I owe you one. Anyway, of course it turned out to be a joke. They ‘broke up’ the next day. Kind of blew a hole in my plans to cross off ‘Have A Gay Best Friend’ on my bucket list. One day, guys, one day…

I think I’m going to quit while I’m ahead and say that’s a wrap for now. Perhaps we will meet again…

Well probably, almost definitely, because I have an abnormally large collection of gifs and I want to use them an unhealthy amount, but I can’t figure out how to do it on Tumblr, so here we are.

Toodles!

Hello, hello! I have returned! I actually never meant to be gone so long. There’s just so much to talk about – maybe I’ve been saving all of it so that I had something to do. I actually haven’t been doing much, I’ve been kind of depressed, but I have some things I haven’t written about and I have things coming up, so hooray!

First of all, remember that acting workshop I said I was going to attend? It was awesome. I had a blast, I truly did, and Lizzy was with me and we just laughed about it the entire time. It was all those little games you know, but it was hilarious with the people we had. There was a game we played at the end that was ‘Who Am I?’ where two people decide what the scene is and who everyone in the scene is, and they begin and the third person walks in and has to work out who they are without asking any questions. Bruce was being a woman – we assume a woman – in labour and Lizzy was the doctor and the third girl who came in had no idea and it was just so funny to watch. It made me feel really accomplished and it was just a lot of fun, definitely something I want to persue. Every time we had a break Lizzy and I ate red vines!

The Hunger Games also came out, and was in fact a really good movie. The whole way up to the cinema, Lizzy and I were singing ‘Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These’ because of something on Tumblr, and now that song is our official theme for the series. It has a lot to do with this guy:

Shh. And on the way back we were looking out the back window with our heads back and Lizzy – who is into science and astronomy and such – was like, ‘I think that one is Sirius’ and I said, ‘It looks quite serious to me’. Lizzy: … Me: … Lizzy: And its background is very Black. Me: Eeeeeyyyyy! This is just how we are, we’re very easily amused. The streetlights kept blinding us when they came up though!

You may also notice I’ve become interested in Supernatural. My mum watched it a lot and I used to catch an episode here and there so I knew the basic storyline, but then I realised I had nothing to watch and decided to go out and buy the first 3 series so I could actually watch it in order. And I liked it so much I bought the rest of it – what’s available – and I cannot wait for more. I’m a Destiel shipper, and who can blame me? Plus, the cast of Supernatural are pretty much the most awesome, hilarious cast of any show ever. I am in love with them as a group.


“Don’t ever change.”


“It’s the Eye of the Tiger!”


“Evil!? I’m Crowley!”


Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki


“Thank you.”


Nothing will stop Misha tweeting his minions.

Sorry to overwhelm you with gifs again. But seriously, in love with this cast. They’re so great! So I’ve also been watching a lot of Supernatural and reading a lot of fan fiction and using Tumblr and generally doing what I did before with Glee which will be back soon as well. American shows like doing hiatuses I’ve noticed and I really don’t like it. British television never did that to me – except Sherlock and that was agony. Mostly watchingSupernatural is about having your heart ripped out and eviscerated time and time again as you watch. If you ship Destiel, you only make it worse for yourself, because I have honestly never sailed on an angstier ship. It’s tragic, that’s what it is.

Now moving on from that, I’ve been trying to write again. I really have been trying! And the other day I finally remembered I have this other e-mail address and I hadn’t checked it in ages, so I probably should. To my delight, a few weeks ago I received a review for Nearly Departed: The Necromancer’s Wife. I have mentioned this before, somewhere on this blog. In any case, I haven’t actually touched it in a while though I have still been thinking about it and what I’m doing with it. This reviewer actually informed me that they considered the story worthy to be published someday and I got so giddy I re-opened the document and started trying to get a feel for where I was at again. I don’t like a lot of what I did with this story, it needs a lot of work, but I still adore the characters and story and I think I can make something with it if I put in the work, which I will.

Yes, thank you Dean, it is awesome. And there is more awesome up and coming! Although the past few weeks (that have frankly felt like months) I have done very little besides the two things I have already mentioned, I have things to look forward to. Oh and before I forget: good luck to Lizzy on her Major Work for art, I hope you break those stereotypes!

It’s going to be awesome. I am involved, loosely…

Anyway, things coming up include Ironfest! Ironfest is a festival here in my hometown that celebrates metal and humanity and the relationship between them. Which sounds really boring when you say it that way, unless you write a little story about a man and his metal, and how in love they were. (It can be done. Anything can be done if the Sherlockfandom were able to write a fan fiction drabble about two pools who were in love.) Every year though, the festival has a new theme. Last year was Steampunk (hell yes!) and this year the theme is Apocalypse. Awesome, Dean? Awesome. Next year it’s going to be Time Travel, so I’m keen for that. In any case, there are belly dancers and metal workers and shops and there’s a war re-enactment and fireworks and there’s jousting and sword fighting and a display of executions (with you know, fake bodies) so it’s all pretty cool. So that’s going to be fun.

We also have Easter! Whoo! Chocolate!

We all do, Rory. So here is what’s going to happen:

On this day, I will see Lizzy and we’ll probably watchSupernaturaland then we’ll go to musical and leave an hour early. I will spend the night up at her place because on:

I am going with Lizzy and her mum to Canberra to spend the night in a hotel and I will probably act like such a kid because I’ll feel just like I’m Sam or Dean on a hunt and hey, everyone thinks Lizzy and I are sisters anyway (no, they really do, not sure why) and she’s taller than me and smarter than me and I like food more than she does, unhealthy food and she’s younger than me and OH MY GOD we’re the female versions of Sam and Dean! Not really but anyway. We’ll be in Canberra because on:

We’re going to see this Renaissance Italian art exhibition which is pretty cool actually even though it’s not usually my thing, so that’s awesome, and we get back late on Saturday night so I’m staying at her place again, then they’ll drop me home on:

For EASTER! Whoo! But in order to do this Canberra thing, I might, probably, almost definitely be working from 5:30 to close, but then is Easter Sunday so maybe we’ll be dead anyway and I’ll get extra pay which is quite convenient anyway since I wasn’t able to work this last week. And then it’ll be:

And I will go to musical… sigh. And then it’ll be:

Wherin I won’t do much… and then it’ll be:

Again, and I really just wanted to complete the week of gifs, so sorry about that. And so that and Ironfest is pretty much all April will be to me, but then it’s May and the musical will be performed in May and my brother and his wife’s first anniversay is in May so that’s all pretty awesome. Do I give them paper for their first anniversary? I’m not sure. I’ll just give them a card. And after all that I’ll be trying to go to some short acting courses and such, so there will at least be something to do I suppose.

Oh and I haven’t even told you about Lizzy’s and my plan to make a movie! Okay, it’s going to be really cool, but because it’s a really interesting topic, and I feel I’ve prattled enough here…

Okay, okay. I’ll save it for my next blog. Deal? I’ll write it maybe tomorrow. There’s a whole tonne of other stuff I wanted to talk about here but since I can’t fit it in, I will write another blog tomorrow while I wait for Lizzy to drop by. Okay? Brief preview: the movie, plans to see Titanic and Hunger Games with Lizzy and Mel, my pop’s memoirs, memories in general.

Okay then. I’m out.

Eagerly,
Lexiconish.

I have been busy lately. First of all, my friends have made it apparent to me that I run a lucrative brothel called “The Den of Iniquity” and almost all of my friends are my employees, half of them volunteered personally. We bought phallus-shaped door knobs from ancient Pompeii especially for the brothel. It’s been great.

Aside from that, it’s approaching the end of my high school life and I’ve been handing in major works, writing and giving and listening to speeches, keeping up with all the extra activities such as Slave Day, Muck Up Day and the Formal – though our politically correct principal has renamed them Personal Assisstant Day, Fun Day and the Farewell, respectively. So it’s been pretty all over the place.

On Wednesday it was Lizzy’s birthday! We’re celebrating this weekend with a movie, and I bought her paperclips, since she asked so nicely. I have to keep planning for the formal because I still need a dress and now I’m going with Ryan again because he asked and because why not? Ryan’s been my friend for a number of years now and yeah, it was awkward in year ten because he fancied me (why?) but now it’s much more relaxed. Thank heavens for our different subjects! Also the Highland Ball is coming up quickly and I need a dress for that. I won’t need a date though, because Lizzy will be coming with me so I won’t be lonely like I was last year – well, I danced with my sister, but it’s always nice to have a friend come with.

My cousin had her first baby on the seventh too! Happy birthday Raiden (this is the only time that phrase is accurate, so I had to)! I haven’t seen Raiden outside photos yet, but I’ll get there ^^;

I’m back at work, two nights a week, so I actually have money now. Money is good.

In my spare time I’ve been happily writing and drawing. I found ‘my style’ now, inspired by the comic style of AceroTiburon, and it’s really working for me, though I’ve got a long way to go still folks. When I’m not drawing, I’m writing – my story Lorelai, which has a cast of characters whose personalities are unlike any I’ve worked with before and are fun but really tricky to write! I might post a bit up here for you guys at some point.

I still plan to review ‘Never Mind Me’, by the by. Maybe when I’m not so overwhelmed! And that’s it for now. I just kind of wanted to record all of this stuff, because August has always been such a busy month!

Chill-axed,
Lexiconish.
