Coffee and Green Tea

I know, I know. celebrations throughout the land will take place today because, I, Michaela Garnett have finally posted some other pointless paragraph on wordpress after weeks of denial.

I’d like to think so, anyway.

I’m not sure why I haven’t written in so long but I’ll spare you the explanation as you probably do not care for one. This week beginning 17th February is the Half term holidays and I have had numerous lovely things planned during it that I thought i’d note down for memory’s sake.

I spent the beginning of it with Harvey,  we broke up ( from college I mean, not each other ) so I spent Friday with him and although we were meant to have a valentines meal, the chicken I cooked was raw in the middle and then when I put it back in the oven it went all dry so in the end I gave up and had a cheese sandwich. It was lovely. Then Harvey went down to the sea side to visit his Grandma and although I was invited, I stayed at home so that people could be seen and homework could be done!

I decided at the start of the holidays I was bored of my bedroom, so the little project I have started is drawing the disney castle, characters and quotes onto one of the walls. It’s taking ages and i’m not the best artist in the world, at one point  the castle just looked like a lot of wobbly penises but it’s starting to look acceptable. Harvey bought me 8meters of warm white fairy lights so I can put those up too so they look like stars.

I cannot believe I am 16 years old. More like 6!

Of course, some time was spent doing homework. Although i’m a published author, the subject I struggle most with is English literature, in particular, creative writing. All we have to do is write the opening chapter to a book and i’m finding it so hard,. my first grade was just a C, so if that doesn’t tell you  that ‘away with the fairies’ is 113 pages worth of absolute POOP I don’t know what will. I’ve also been going to the gym every day but today.

Yesterday, My neighbour and good friend Alex ( we call him Flanders, or Ned.) needed new clothes so some of us, his friends embarked on an adventure to Manchester. Dan, Lucy, conor and I all helped him pick out clothes, we even did the thing where you hold up two  shirts and are like ‘blue? or green?’  he chose green. I voted for us to do what they do in the movies where they all try on lots of outfits and we’re like, ‘nah, nope. NOOO..YES, IT’S PERFECT!’ but it didn’t happen. Dan also wanted some help, but finding a blazer to fit his arm length was hard, so he stuck with the safe option of buying multiple plain white t-shirts. Lucy said ‘i’m not buying any clothes until I have a car,’ yet she walked out with three bags. I bought a top, some shoes that were on sale for £3 and some mens bracelet. Conor, however, got his lip pierced. His parents aren’t too happy, but I wont go into that. Then we all had lunch and a bit later went to a cafe for coffee (  or in my case green tea) …actually, Dan was the only one to have Coffee.. so never mind.Anyway, It was a really nice day and it made me happy.

Today the girls ( Lucy, Gee, Sophie and Becca ) are coming round and we’re going to eat noodles, watch films and drink tea all night and all day. I’m looking forward to it very much.

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!

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
