i didn't blog about the uk election (not too thrilled with the con/dem coalition government, but they're doing a decent enough job so far), i haven't blogged about any music festivals (but i will watch them on the tv :3?), i didn't blog about my trip to poland (covered in weird brusies and bites), i didn't blog about my exams (which is for the best, to be honest)
so now that we've covered that, i can get back to using this blog to tediously rant about nothingness. excited?
one last thing: i was watching question time last thursday, and they're seemed to be a big upset that the age of receiving the basic state pension has been pushed back. am i the only person that isn't bothered by this? i don't plan to rely heavily on my state pension (the word basic would usually put people off pegging all their hopes on it, but apparently some people are excited about living on £5,000 a year).
do you want an opinionated, stroppy 16 year olds advice? no? too bad. take out a private pension, or pay into an occupational pension. do not (and i repeat DO NOT) put all your hopes on your state pension. you'll be very disappointed.

i know i haven't blogged in a while, sorry etc etc etc
anyways, now that that's over with.. i'm currently in admin right now as i'm blogging, as blogspot is one of the few websites which hasn't been blocked (yay?)
it's pretty pointless being in school, teachers can't be fucked teaching right now because they know that we'll forget everything come august, so we just sit about doing fuck all. i need to swap my column choices around aswell since i have to be difficult and choose adv higher english in the wrong column, so i'm not sure what i'll be dropping/taking up. it's so tempting to just leave school...

it's been a while since we've just talked, blog we never just talk anymore.
i've been off school for nearly 2 weeks now and the closest i've came to studying was copying out a few pages of a modern studies essay thats so long overdue it probably doesn't even matter anymore. last year i made this big promise about how i'd become more organized this year, and clearly that hasn't happened, i'm still lazy as ever. yay for never changing! yay for procrastination! yay!
it's also just hit me that ugly betty has been cancelled. i remember reading months ago on wikipedia that it was being cancelled, but i wasn't really bothered. i was on their wiki the other day though to try to find out when series 4 comes out over here since it has fucking been FOREVER (apparently it's "unsure" when it's coming out, incase you were wondering)
hardly anyone seems to have watched ugly betty, let alone are still tuning in after 3 years. i've never been sure why ugly betty seems to be so unpopular here. maybe they would find it more interesting if they knew more about american culture? i don't know....
i'll be sad to see it end though. i laughed at betty when she first applied for the job and fell off the swivel chair, i screamed at charlie when she stole henry from betty and lied about her baby being his, i cried when bradford died and i hated wilhelmina when she stole his dead sperm and helped alexis get a sex change (i was so sure that it was actually fey summers!)
i lived through betty struggle through her socially awkward life at mode, i lived through connor stealing all the money from the company, i was there during the aftermath of santos' death (the first episode where hilda is dreaming that he's still alive was cruel, it had me in tears), i love ugly betty! and i'll be so sad to see it go :(
other life-related things:
- i completed pokemon soul silver, so now i have nothing to do
- my room refuses to stay clean, so i keep it happy by not cleaning
- waiting for glee to start back up here is killinggggg me
- i've gotten strangely obsessed with the tim urban version of 'all my loving'
i've gotten extremely/stupidly (delete as necessary) obsessed with the 2010 general election. i won't say who i support so to not ruffle feathers
(the lib dem manifesto is the best. just saying...)

to keep me sane throughout this time though, i have lots of favourite things.
this march, i have:
- gotten OBSESSED with perle de lait yogurt. in particular, their coconut yogurt. i seen the advert with the french girl, and the way that she said "co-co noot" made me want to constantly rewind those 2 seconds and watch them continuiously (i must be a marketers dream). after getting over that fun, i bought 21472349823 4 pack cartons of said yogurt, and i think it's now my favourite yogurt: since you don't get boston cream pie yogurt here
(i said "yogurt" 5 times in that bullet point)
- tried to drop biology at school because my teacher is a ____ _____, but i can't use that as an excuse to give up. so i sit at the back trying to repress my anger
- passed all the nab's i had to pass :)
- probably pissed off my liver a few times
- managed to spend £80 on fuck knows what ('fuck know what' being 2L bottles of juice, bus/train fares, perle de lait yogurt, pens and things that i genuinely don't know)
- watched an insane amount of tv (skins [the finale was shit], glee, coronation street, question time, family guy, under cover princess/snog marry avoid , never mind the buzzcocks, 8 simple rules, mock the week, summer heights high, etc etc etc)
- seen leap year! every time matthew goode kissed amy adams, me and lauren shouted at the screen. then died a little inside.
- seen alice in wonderland in 3D! tbh the hype wasn't worth it. the storyline was a bit disappointing. i only really liked the parts where there were flashbacks to 6 year old alice
- eaten so many mint aero bubbles that i'm expecting to turn into one
i've also gotten a bit obsessed with mad libs. i always try to find people who i can talk about interesting mad libs with, but no one seems to know what they are and they just look at me with the worst look on their face when i badly try to explain what they are. maybe i'm just immature, but i think mad libs are absolutely brilliant. i really love it when you end up with a tres funny story in the end
how can you fill out a mad lib and not love it?
ps - let me be the first to tell you to stop fucking unaccuratly rambling on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about pokemon soul silver & heart gold. yes, pokemon is fantastic. but at least spell the pokemon's fucking names right. i hate you. bye bye.

i don't know about you, but i think that occult things such as horoscopes and palm reading are incredibly cool. not 'cool' in the sense that 'everyones doing it so it's "in"' ("in" being one of the least used terms in my vocabulary), but in an interesting sense. criticise all you like, i won't change.
so i was lying on my bedroom floor, hurling things from underneath my bed to try to find something interesting (as you do) and i found all these little momentos from the chinese new year in london 2008 (i think) and i started thinking about my star sign: SCORPIO.
so i knew that "all" scorpios are
- moody (check)
- protective (check)
- jealous (BIG check)
- self-destructive (check)
- quick tempered (check)
- investigative (check)
- insulting (check)
- thinks of flattery as insulting (check)
- enjoys a fight and intends to win (check check oh & check)
but there are LOADS of aspects that are apparently "important/crucial/etc" about scorpios that i had no idea about. for example, apparently scorpios 'true meaning' is to learn selfless love. i have no idea what that means, apart from it would be difficult for me - i don't even know what 'love' is in a romantic way to be able to know an unselfish love (i'm a selfish person, so sue me), apparently scorpios are obsessed with financal gain, inheritance, etc. which for me at least, is incredibly accurate. scorpios can apparently be posessive (again, another truth for me)
scorpios are also said to be secretive, not just with their thoughts/feelings, but with minut things. this is verrry true for me. i absolutely hate it when i'm asked to confess how i feel for someone, unless it's a negative feeling i have for them, then i have no problem being a bitch (yet another scorpio trait)
scorpios are said to be intolerant, and i'm assuming this is meant in a "short tempered" sense, which is SOSO true. see, if you were to pick apart my personality, you'd find the worst traits possible in a human all rolled into one vindictive, obstinate, bitchy person (vindictive + obstinate - both scorpio traits)
yay for conforming to sterotypes!
on a seperate note, right now i'm "baby sitting" my brother while he sits with his nose against his tv playing MW2 screaming at his friends or whatever to "NOT FUCKING DEFUSE THAT FUCKING BOMB". so while he raises his blood pressure to levels which definately aren't healthy, i'm being even more unsocial, drinking lilt + vodka, trying to get over the fright i had about 2 hours ago, pretending to be a cat and talking to people about our first kisses (i was 6, his name was austin, he [barely] kissed me on the lips, it took me about a month to realize what he had done and since then i haven't spoken to him. oh well - maybe it's another secret scorpio characteristic...)

i was reading my older blogs earlier on. they make me cringe. they probably made everyone reading them cringe. oh well.
so while i was on study leave for prelims last week, i realized that i genuinely don't care about school anymore. (i think it was sometime between doing shots off my math book and hanging upside down off my swivel chair and spinning myself around)
i remember when i was in elementary school and i was determined to do amazing in school... but i couldn't tell you why, because i didn't know. i'd spend much longer than needed on homework/projects and i'd be heartbroken if i got less than 100%. maybe a reason i wanted to do so well in school when i was younger was because i knew what i wanted to do with my life. i wanted to be a judge. (every single summer vacation and me, my mum and my little brother would watch judge judy then go to the best fucking artificial beach ever. i miss dallas) i figured being a judge would be easy, since all you had to do was sit and shout at people. then i realized i'd have to get loads of A passes at higher, and i was immediately discouraged (hard work + me = no because i'm a lazy procrastinator)
for a while i wanted to be a journalist, but after watching videos of journalists/the paparazzi fight for even a single sentence from the celebrity they're stalking, i realized i'd be shit at that.
so now i have no idea what i want to do. i think even if i had a little bit of an idea where i want to be in like... 5 years or so then i'd probably do better in school because i'd have a goal, no matter how uncertain it is.

every kind of sushi is lovelyyy. apart from pret a manger's take away sushi (bad memories of it's awful wasabi and spitting it out over the side of a london tour bus while said bus was in motion... the soy sauce came in the cutest pot though)
my first experience of a proper sushi bar was so stressful. after about 5 minutes there was tako everywhere, there was saba everywhere, there was sushi rice everywhere, there was soy sauce everywhere, i thought it was a good idea to eat a big blob of wasabi by itself, i was basically batting the sushi off the conveyor belt that it rolled along in. i couldn't have oozed more of a 'NEWBIE' status than if i tried to scoop it up with a spoon, or prod it with the chopsticks, or attempt to cut it with a knife and fork. anyways, water under the bridge, right? although now i'm... slightly more sushi savvy...
fact for the day: studying is a lot more fun when it's carried out with chocolate, face masks and alcopops. ok studying is never 'fun', but being... chemically inconvenienced makes it more... interesting, if nothing else
