Today

Today has been a simple day but its been a lovely one.
If you’d read my previous posts you’d know that I have this kind of obsessive love for criminal minds. I’m very lucky in the fact that three of my bestfriends share this with love with me.
So, we spent the day on my sofa, with bags of crisps, packets of strawberry laces, bars of chocolate and bowls of chips. We ate and ate whilst we watched criminal minds one episode after the other. We watched all our favourite ones ( mainly the ones that starred spencer) again and again. I loved it. We occasionally paused it and talked about random things like people & the future, our plans and even got onto the topic of religion.
Then we went for a walk and stopped at the park we haven’t been to in years. That was nice because we just got to swing and talk about the days when we’d run to get the middle swing and try and kick each other as we got higher.
It’s been so simple but so lovely. Now we’re all in my bed, talking and laughing and it’s just so lovely. I genuinely hope that it stays this way forever & college doesn’t change the relationship we have now in any way but for the better.

Around the corner..

I know the phrase ‘you never know what’s waiting for you around the corner’ is very typical and overused but it’s so true.
You never know what or who will be waiting around that corner on your path of life.
You don’t know if you’re going to meet someone that will change your life. You don’t know if you’ll be given news that causes your heart to silently shatter into a thousand pieces never to be repaired again.
Too many people I know are greeted by some nasty things around that well talked about corner.
My nanna for example. Was met with an aneurism (I think that’s the correct spelling) and now she’ll never turn another corner again because that was her last. She planned to travel to so many places after the Christmas period in which she died. She was going to see so much of the World, she was going to have adventures! She had so much ahead of her but never got there.
Those corners of life can do so much in so little time..
My whole life has slowly been put into perspective this year and now I want to do something about it.
People usually create bucket lists when they’re expecting to die but why wait until you know?
Tomorrow I’m going to post a bucket list & try to complete the majority of it in the summer – so obviously they’re going to be reasonable targets.
Sorry if I’ve been a bit cringey/pathetic/sad/morbid right now.. Just thinking about a lot!

Funerals

Not a nice topic, I know.
We had a funeral at the pub yesterday. The family came the day before and put up loads and loads of pictures of their dad who had passed away.
Of course, I had a nosey at them.
This guy had been in the navy, met amazing people, been given awards, did great things for the scouts and was in the paper.
All I could think was ‘I hope I have this much to show for my life when I die’
Of course, he lived until he was quite old, so had a long time to achieve a lot of things.
But at the same time, we’re all only getting older- what do we have to show for our lives? I have a book and the charity day I organised.. But that’s it. For nearly 16 years.
I really want to do more, so the picture boards will be jam packed at my funeral.
Love from me x

‘Questions people will never ask you.’

I saw that a blog I follow (she’s called floodedroses, I Reccomend you having a look at her blog!) had done a post called 99 questions people will never ask you – probably because it will allow them to find out absolutely pointless information. I thought I’d give it a go anyway, seeing as i can’t sleep. You can learn some useless stuff about me too! It’s win- win you see;)

1: Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

I take ‘closet’ means wardrobe? Well, they’re slide doors so I’m not fussed!

2: Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?

Everytime.

3: Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

Out mostly, but if its cold or I’m feeling sad I’ll tuck them in and cuddle my teddy. 🙂

4: Have you ever stolen a street sign before?

No. I’m pretty sure Harvey has though. Once he brought me a huge canvass sign thing advertising a local circus.

5: Do you like to use post-it notes?

No, they always fall off and they’re too small to write anything of significance on. They also get wasted by teachers.

6: Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?

Yes!

7: Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?

Neither to be very honest. Maybe me and the bear would have some heartwarming moment like on ‘how to train your dragon’ and we’ll become the first legalised bear-woman marriage.

No. I really wish i did though!

9: Do you always smile for pictures?

..I’m pretty sure i have. If not I’ve peed in a big field… And Sarah’s back garden

13: What about pooped in the woods?

19: Is it okay for guys to wear pink?

Sure!

20: Do you still watch cartoons?

Who doesn’t?

21: Whats your least favourite movie?

Hmmm.. I found This one hard. Can’t think of any I don’t like and if Incan I can’t remember what they’re called!! :/

22: Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?

In the field next to my house!
23: What do you drink with dinner?

Water or juice 🙂
24: What do you dip a chicken nugget in?

Ketchup every time.

25: What is your favourite food?

There’s quite a Long list.
I really like peanut butter chocolate like reeses, those pink and blue fizzy cola bottles and chicken’s nice too:)

Oh god,
The delinquents
Phantom of the opera
The perks of being a wallflower
Dirty dancing
Ghost
Titanic
Finding never land
School of rock

Brave

I thought I’d let you all know what I thought of the Disney film ‘Brave’, whether you want to know what I thought or not.
It didn’t appeal to me at first, some animated scots prancing around in kilts killing bears, I want pretty princesses and love and all that jazz!
But to be honest, I really enjoyed it today. I haven’t left the sofa and I refuse to change from my pajamas because it’s my day off until exams tomorrow.
First off, merida’s hair is absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE red hair and I’m insanely jealous of my brother and boyfriend who are both gingers. To top it off, she has beautiful frizz and curl to it, which is exactly how I love mine… But I have to use heat to get It that way.

20130610-160632.jpg just look at it! Beautiful!!!
Then, they’re Scottish. I love the accent, I think it’s so amusing, much better than mine which isn’t an accent at all. 😦
Merida has three small brothers, who part way through turn into bears. I want them! They’re adorable and so mischievous!

20130610-160910.jpg
Last but certainly not least, the story line is so refreshing!
It’s not about some princess who wears big pretty dresses, dreams of love and loves to read, Merida hates her dress because it prevents her from using her bow and arrow to the best of her ability. She can hit the bullseye better than any of the boys and hates the thought of marriage. Her story isn’t that she finally finds someone and falls in love, she accidentally turns her mother, who disapproves of her not wanting to marry or wear dresses into a bear!! they quest to find the witch who did this to her to help them turn her mother back before its too late and the spell becomes permanent. This results in the improvement of their relationship and her father almost killing her mother because he mistook her for an evil bear.
I really loved this film and recommend it, especially to huge Disney and fairy tale friends like myself!!
Love from me x

Leavers

So, Friday is our last ever day in high school.
Of course, we have to go back for exams, but we’ll never have normal lessons, or break or lunch ever again.
In three years we’ll be like ‘michaela who?’ And ‘what was his name, I’m sure I sat next to him in chemistry!’ It’s just going to be SO WEIRD.
I am really sad about leaving. All these people I’ve spent 5 years getting comfortable around, Gone. Replaced by hundreds of other people in college.
I’m really excited to be ‘moving on’, ‘going into the world’ etc etc but its just such a shame to leave.
Now it’s like ‘oh, Michaela and her friends poked you up the bum? Oh yeah that’s normal’ to ‘she did WHAT? What a weirdo.’ And I’m really quite sad.
My bestfriends aren’t in college with me, they’re in sixth form or at different colleges.
Who will I sit with at break and lunch?
Who will I mess around with in lessons?
Who will I run up to with gossip?
Waah! The first few weeks are going to be tough. I don’t want to make new friends. I want to keep all mine that ate my friends now. I can’t imagine being friends with anybody else, noone could ever be as close to me, replace them or be as special to me as they are.
I’m listening to take thats ‘never forget’ and it’s making me cry.

‘Guy mates’

So my bestfriends (the girls) told me to write about my bestfriends (the guys).

There’s a lot I can say about them all.
I could list their names and state the things I love about each one of them.

I won’t embarrass them that much.
They’re all typical guys. They’ll all you ‘gay’ if you try and get soppy or emotional with them, they throw food at eachother and talk with their mouths full. The ‘banter’ can sometimes go a bit far but that’s because they’re guys and were girls and girls just can’t do banter, they take it to heart.

I wouldn’t change any of them for the world though.

They will always be there if you’re feeling down and will listen to you moan on at them about nothing in particular. They’re hugs are the best, you know that they’re really genuine and they can keep a secret.

Some of the things they say and do can be some of the funniest things I’ve ever witnessed. Or some of the weirdest. If you’ve never seen somebody eat a tea bag then you’re obviously not friends with these guys.
They will look after you when you’re not feeling too good or if you just feel a lot like poo.
Talking of poo their farts are absolutely disgusting.
They don’t care what us girls look like and don’t mind if we’re hair scraped back with no makeup on in a hoodie. We don’t have to make an effort for them or be careful what we do or say because it really doesn’t matter to them.(i hope!)
I can’t wait to have most of them round this weekend. They’ll probably wreck the place but we’ll have so much fun.
They’re absolutely crazy but I love them so much. They’ve cheered me up just writing about them. They’ve been my friends for about 3 years and I don’t think I’ll ever find any as special and lovely as these guys if I looked for the rest of my life.
‘HA. GAYYYYYEEEEE’
