Things I’m going to spend my money on:

– A haircut

– Red hair dye

– A dress for Graduation Dinner/summer evenings

– Charlie McDonnell and Alex Day album bundle. Mmmm ๐Ÿ˜€

– Cards for teachers

– A good book. Although I don’t know what yet, so…ideas?

– Harry Potter movie tickets

– Alcohol

– Camping/New Year’s stuff

– Dinners and outings with you

– Christmas presents for people (because shit, it’s only 40-something days away!)

There we go. Clear head. No excuse to not study now ๐Ÿ™‚ (Psssht…yeah right.)



OK, I’ll admit it! I’ve been tumblring. A lot. Reasons being…

a) I’m supposed to be studying and posting pictures and videos without writing essays is, I tell myself, less time-wasting;

b) It’s quicker and kinda easier. And involves less thinking, kind of;

c) I’ve made it not sync to my facebook, so not so many people see my posts and I feel less guilty about doing it.

So uh, yes. That’s about it. I’m failing at studying for exams but despite this they’ve all seemed to go fine so far, excluding maths (which was expected). Got two psych exams to go tomorrow and Friday which I’ll attempt to study for now, then music on Friday too which will be sweet, and French on Monday. Pssht, stuff doing anything for that ๐Ÿ˜›

And in brief, good things which have happened/are happening:

– GOT ACCEPTED INTO COLLEGE HOUSE FOR NEXT YEAR! This is very exciting. And what’s more, my parents didn’t die of shock when I told them the cost. I’m just gonna student loan it (seeing as I can now, being a NZPR and all ๐Ÿ˜€ )

– 6 weeks left of school EVER! SO excited for summer and everything including…

– End of IB partaaaay ๐Ÿ˜€ This will be epic.

As for bad things:

– Not much, except for failing at studying. But as it seems to be only maths and psych that I reeeeeeally need to study for, I thinks I will be fine ๐Ÿ™‚ Just keen for it all to end now.

– And I think I’m gonna quit with the blogging on here, at least after I get prelim results back. A 5ish week break is all, I will be back soon (probably sooner…) ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve found a few more Arcade Fire favourites recently too, so I’ll leave you with this one.


Last night was perfect. So perfect. We had the best cuddles (8 days apart is far too long to bear), and we had cute little presents for each other which were perfect in themselves because they show how we know we don’t have to try and impress each other – that something with meaning counts more than anything. Dinner was made perfect by your mother’s classic appearance and then our usual people-watching comments and conversations about life. And then our trip to the beach in the Swift with good music playing through the open window (thanks to my mixtape skills ๐Ÿ˜› ). Cute walk/chase along the sand and then back in time to buy snacks for our movie. Empty theatre, best seats in the house, one of the best movies I’ve seen with exactly the right amount of lovey stuff to be cute, and tension to give me an excuse to hold your hand. Home late, then snuggles in bed with chocolate and bro’Town. Pillow talk, play fights, cute kisses and cuddles, then finally sleep-time in the best place in the entire universe – your room, your bed, right beside you.

You mean the absolute world to me bubs. Spending time with you makes me realise how worthless and boring and pointless everything else in life is. The only thing that matters is you, especially now. We have exams and we’re supposed to be studying and I’m trying…I really am. Apparently, these exams define our futures. To an extent, yes. But ultimately, it’s the people that make you who you are that make the hugest difference to where you end up and what you become. And for me, that person is you. ย I love you so much. Always will. Thank you for always being here.

Just another blog post about studying and stuff.

Because today, I sucked at it. Completely. I woke up, ‘Hey, maths day today. Go through a past paper and revise things I don’t know at the same time.’ Well it soon became clear that I knew nothing. At least it felt like it. What annoys me most though, is how after two days of maths tutorials last week, I felt great. I felt like there may be a possibility that I won’t fail maths. But of course, as soon as I sit down and try to do a paper myself, that confidence just crumbles. I just suck so badly. I wish so much that I’d done studies; I don’t even need maths for what I want to do. So then, I gave up. I organised my music folder instead. Didn’t really ‘study’ as such, which is when I realised that the best part of ‘studying’ is ‘organising’ two years worth of notes and finding little messages and conversations and doodles from yourself and your obviously equally as hard-working peers. My music folder is full of them. Lots of pictures of penises (courtesy of Dylan) and – what I consider the highlight of such an art collection – a single page of blank refill containing a roughly drawn circle to which an arrow points stating ‘Someone licked here. Eww.’ I am treasuring this.

I also wasted a huge amount of time editing my World of Text page due to the fact that someone (I suspect Jack) attempted – and very nearly succeeded – in filling as much of the space as possible with \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ (backward slashes?) I do find this thing extremely cool though. It’s amazing how sexual everyone is when they get to be anonymous. Although of course, there are those who do not have to be anonymous to be sexual.

Finally, my tumblr. I told you I gots one, so follow me! Good person.

And finally finally, this is for you cutie ๐Ÿ˜€ I am so looking forward to Friday!!!

Now off to watch Top Gearย Bolivia ๐Ÿ˜› …

I hate ‘study break’.

I should’ve known it was impossible to have two productive days in a row. I finished off my cue cards today and then the sun managed to tempt me outside so, naturally, I’ve been unable to get back to work since. I also made one of my stupidest decisions ever and contradicted my post from a couple of days ago by getting myself a tumblr. I said last night that it would be for the pure reason that I would be able to ‘like’ Blakie’s posts, but guess what? I’ve spent the past hour reblogging stuff from other random tumblrs. Great.ย One thing is for sure though – nothing is going to take over this blog. This is my place and tumblr can just be my bit on the side for, I don’t know…collecting junk?

In other news, the sun is out and it feels like summer. Which is really not doing my studying any favours. I wanna be on holiday with you and driving around with the windows down…going to the beach…picnicing… Sigh, soon I guess ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’m not only behind on studying, but university stuff too. Applications for scholarships are due by 5pm on October 1st. I don’t want to write 500 words on the importance of the Alumni Community at UC just to be in with an extremely slight chance of being granted $5,000. So I’ll try and do that tonight/tomorrow. But it probably won’t happen. Which means I won’t be able to afford university, which means I won’t be able to move to ChCh, which means I’ll have to leave you. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ OK, that’s downward spiralling to the worst case scenario but still, I don’t want to do all this stuff. I just wanna have the longest and best summer ever and for it to never end. Please?

And I’ve decided today, how much I loathe ‘study break’. For one thing, you carry around an incredibleย burden of guilt whenever you find yourself doing something un-study related. But also, I don’t get to see you. I don’t get to see anyone, actually, but you’re the most important person for me to see. I miss you. It’s only been 4 days, but there’s 4 more to go. And I hardly talk to you during the day either because we’re both ‘studying’ a.k.a. doing anything that will keep my mind off you. Friday night couldn’t come sooner. I don’t care that it brings us closer to exams. It brings me closer to you, and that is all I need.

10 ’til 6.

I DID IT! 40 home-made cue cards later and I’ve succeeded in keeping myself away from facebook and here for 8 whole bloody hours. See, I do have some self-control.

Admittedly, I haven’t quite finished all my work. I’ve spent all day working (literally – I’ve moved from my chair for lunch and to make two cups of coffee) but I’m still only on scene four of seven of The Glass Menagerie. Oh well, at least I know I’m doing things in detail, maybe. I’ll do a few more tonight but finish them off in the morning, then do les mathematiques tomorrow.

I’ve just created one of these – http://www.yourworldoftext.com/boatsagainstthecurrent. It’s basically a blank page which can be edited by anyone, anywhere, anytime. Thought it could be fun. And it’s completely anonymous, so anyone can write whatever the hell they want. Please do it. I like reading secret messages.

Et finalement (that is my token bit of French study), it’s so light! I like getting into my pyjamas and dressing gown at around 6 if I’m staying home, but I feel awful doing it when the sun’s still shining outside. Guess these means summer’s on its way. Again. Things never stay around for long enough, do they.

So, tell me –

Start as you mean to go on.

Check my facebook in the morning to find this. The absolute best start to my day ๐Ÿ˜€ And what’s better, I actually have a plan of action for today (maybe publicising it will make me more likely to do it…) :


– Quotes for The Glass Menagerie onto cue cards


– Finish the above
– Make a page of rules/formulae I need to know and don’t yet know for maths. (inc. special angles. AHJFDKHJ)


– Do fun stuff ๐Ÿ™‚
