School is going well. I think I'm almost settled down now. I've practically forgotten what it was even like to wear uniform. The whole non-uniform bit is also a lot better than I thought. Maths/Further maths was a great decision, I think. The lessons are pretty good! On Friday, the last two lessons were double Further Maths, and it was surprisingly not bad.
The only things I have especially not liked are the practicals in Physics and Chemistry. Every 2 weeks we have a chemistry practical and they annoy me!

Every Saturday morning is perfect as I get to sleep in. On Thursday, my bag was fit to burst because I had to bring along my labcoat, and walking home was a nightmare. Especially on the uphill parts.

My sister and I plan to go to New Zealand some day. If this ever happened, I would be so happy. So very happy.
The tickets cost a lot. If we went it could be in 3 years' time, if I took a gap-year, because we will have both finished school by then.
What really freaks me out a bit, though, is having such a long flight. It's fine but...what would I be doing for...more than 20 hours sitting down!!?

Hm, anyway. I've been doing absolutely nothing. I tried to start another book but I couldn't get into it. I've just been speaking to my friend and listening to Blur and Porcupine Tree.

The little cat that STILL keeps coming to our door sneaked in and started to drink from Mimi's water bowl. Hahaha

I want to watch Star Trek again now.

I can't stop listening to this song:



I just spent an hour searching frantically for the SD memory card for my mother's camera. For some reason I didn't put it in the camera and I was convinced it had been accidentally pushed into the bin which was taken out. I searched everywhere, in very silly places too. Eventually I stopped and thought about all the possibilities and calmed down a bit, and I thought it might be in the pocket of the clothes I was wearing yesterday. It was. I was so relieved, I cannot describe. I don't know why I was so panicked, but it might be because next Saturday I am going to the seaside (finally) and I really want to take many pictures.

I've been messing around with the camera a lot and I think I've learned a lot more now. It's a very nice camera to use. My mother also learned the basics of how to take pictures too.

I also found this webcomic and I like it immediately.

I actually have a story outline now. Listening to Porcupine Tree helped a lot, it seems.

I think I'll have a lot more luck with writing now than in the past because I have always had a problem with wanting it to be right immediately and then getting frustrated when it isn't. Then again, it's probably because the last time I really wrote anything was a few years ago and I was a lot more impatient then. Now, I see that it doesn't matter if it's terrible now because all the things I've written down now are most likely not even going to be in the final thing anyway (when it hopefully gets written someday).

Now I just have to start writing. I'm not sure if, for me, it's best to plan out all the chapters beforehand or just let it flow. In the past, making it up as I go along has never resulted in anything that makes any sort of sense, so I don't know...hmm.

Oh yeah, I watched Harry Potter!Collapse )

I was messing around with the camera yesterday so I just thought I'd post a few.
I was sort of bored so I took pictures of many boring things, sorry.

There are many many photos hereCollapse )

Yesterday I had a vaccination and now I can't lift my arm or sleep on that side which is very annoying. I also have to go to the dentist today for a checkup, argh!
But, I am going to see HP in the imax theatre tomorrow with my sister, yay. I hope it's not too packed!
I might also see The Lion King on broadway, and possibly also go to the seaside sometime in the next few weeks.

Progress with writing: two paragraphs.

I hate how I have to wait for almost 2 months for my exam results.
Finally, I have created some pictures. For some reason now lj cuts show in the same layout as the journal normally. I'm sure it didn't do that before. Hmmm..

bloop
I just realised I've messed up the arms. Oh well.

bloop

bloop
I quite like this one,actually.

bloop
With this one, I am also pleased (but future me looking back at it will no doubt hate it).

I also saw public enemies with my sister. It was very good!
I'm also very afraid at the talk about something Damon said about Blur not playing in England again.
If this is true then WHAT. WHATT

On Sunday I watched the Glastonbury coverage on BBC2 (for blur, obviously). Ahhh it was great.
Those crazy people. I've never been to see live music before (argh) and I can't imagine how wonderfully mad it must be. I have a feeling, though, that if it were that many people I'd get trampled to death, or it would end up being a terrible experience. Well, I guess I'll probably never know.
I was almost able to go to Hyde park (for blur), but alas, it wasn't so.

I watched all of Firefly again! It makes me sad every time, but I still keep going back to rewatch it all. Now it's time for Serenity. Oh god, why do I do this to myself? It's addictive.

I'm going insane with my lack of ideas. I feel like I'm going to explode.
