Look! Over here! [30 Jul 2004|10:34pm]
[ mood | determined ]

I know, I said that everything would be friends-only from now on, and it still will be.

However, so that everyone knows why, and to read my ideas, apologies and justifications, don't hesitate to log in for what will surely be a riveting read [/sarcasm]. So, everyone who usually reads this (and has a Blurty), please head over there without delay!

As far as my opinions are concerned, that post contains all there is to say, to see, to read, to... *insert verb here*.

And I now return you to your usual programming.

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT! [30 Jul 2004|01:25pm]
[ mood | flirty ]

I would like to make an announcement... my Blurty will from this day forth will be friends-only, in response to recent events. So, in other words, only my friends will be able to read this.

Just thought I should let you know.

I feel better now. I have bad fanfiction, have just finished my Critical Reading, and it looks like I'm going to win the coveted WTF? Award :D

I don't have much else to say. Today was all right, really. Yes. Yes it was.

I really don't have anything of interest to say. So, in all honesty, I don't know why I'm posting.

Oh... I figured out what I'm doing at uni... and beyond! Which is something of a relief, since it's something I've been worrying about for way too long. So, yes. I'm quite pleased about that. I shall tick it off the list of Worrisome Things, which is marginally less extensive.

Meh. Nothing else to say. My brain is unthinky. Which is actually quite a pleasant change. I shall now depart and revel in my unthinky.

A rant that wasn't intended to be a rant. [27 Jul 2004|06:09pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]
[ music | The news... they're talking about the pokies. ]

I signed in about ten minutes ago, and now I don't remember why. Hmm.

Well, school has been much the same as ever. I am feeling much more optimistic about leaving, though. It used to be a bit like I'd become institutionalised, but now I just want out. I think it's because I've become more embittered with people, the world, everything. And so I really want to get away from the inane social microcosm that is our school.

I still don't know what I want to do next year. There's a few courses that might be interesting, but don't know where I'm heading career-wise, so I don't know which ones would be best to choose. I just don't know. I think that I'd like to do some kind of humanitarian aid sort of thing. But when it comes to next year, I'll do German, Mum wants me to do International Studies, and English would be all right, although I don't know what purpose it would serve other than providing me with something that I like doing. So... I'm still quite undecided. I should really choose something some time soon.

Hmm. I don't know.

Reverting back to what I was originally saying, I've been embittered lately, as some people (Jenny) are well aware. I don't know why, but lately I've been seeing a lot of immaturity everywhere, and it's annoying me to no end. I know that I'll be immature at times, like when we have some fun and act stupid, but I'm talking about when people are petty and acting like children with their obsession with social standing (Holly knows exactly what I mean here). It's infuriating. I'm also annoyed with a couple of other things that I won't go into detail about here.

I was saying this to Jenny the other day... I don't know why I've become embittered and incensed by the immaturity of the people around me. I must have matured at some time; I think that maybe having to live in Germany without my family or a decent knowledge of the language taught me to be a lot more independent and mature. But it's just an odd theory, I don't really know.

I must seem really bitchy and grumpy in this post. I actually feel fine, I'm just expanding on the venting that I've been doing lately. It's quite therapeutic to be able to talk about/write about everything. So, to those who listen to my rants, thank you very much :D

And, on this note, I shall end this rant and continue downloading last week's edition of which I failed to listen to and has a Sommerset interview (Squeee!).

Farewell, all.

[ music | Gyroscope- Confidence in Confidentiality. ]

Well, we finally got around to it, and saw The Singing Detective. I think that the conversation I had with my mother when I got home summed it up.

Mum: So, how was the movie?
Me: *sobs* I don't knoooow!
Mum: But... didn't you go and see it?
Me: Yes... but... I just don't know!

It's one of those movies where there's a fine line between loving it and hating it, and I'm still undecided. On one hand, it was interesting what with all the metaphorical time levels, the fact that the entire situation occurred in the protagonist's mind, and the actors playing several different roles. And the campiness was good, in a way. On the other hand... ewww. I never want to see Jeremy Northam again in my life, after all that thrusting and OMGITMOVESIMGONNAHAVESEXWITHIT. The plot was also at times disjointed to say the least, and I think that the flashing colours burned my retinas.

Yes. Fun times. We mainly sat there laughing hysterically whenever Jeremy Northam was licking/undressing/spanking women and staring in horror at the sight of a team of doctors singing "Bum bum bum bum bum bum ooooooohhhhh" and doing campy arm movements.

And that is all I accomplished this weekend. I'm so productive :D Hence, I really don't have a lot to say.

Toodles, then.

I'm going to post some song lyrics. Not for any real reason... it doesn't express my emotions or reveal OMG HIDDEN SEKRITS about me, but... well, it's just a really beautiful song.

Gyroscope- Hollow Like Cheyenne

Ever noticed how our roles have changed?
From what I gather anyway.
Hear me, hear me- punished for silence.
Hear me, hear me- should I die down?
I'll push aside this fear you left me.
I'll burn the signs in secrecy.
You light the sky with tragic beauty.
Now drown it all in sacred sea...
In secrecy.
In tears you left me- in secrecy.
With tragic beauty- in secrecy.
In secrecy.

And to celebrate this post, I shall use my Gyroscope icon :D

Should be fun.

[ music | Mad World (in my head) ]

I really don't know what's wrong with me lately. I was really upset last night, and all I wanted to do was cry for a while, but I couldn't. So instead I sat there and watched Adaptation again, and couldn't even cry when Charlie is singing to his brother as he lays dying on the road, which normally gets me fairly hysterical. Following that, I lay there looking out the window and wondering why the sky isn't as dark as it normally is.

Anyway, the point is, I feel horrible, I can't vent or anything of the sort, and thus feel worse.

I... just don't know.

Well, here is a song that I quite like, and that feels somewhat appropriate.

Mad World.

All around me are familiar faces, worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
The tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad World
Mad World

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And they feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen
Sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me
No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad World.

A rant from thinking!Eric [10 Jul 2004|08:27pm]
[ mood | melancholy ]

I was in one of my weird "thinking too much" moods the other day, and I came to the conclusion that the parts of my brain can be divided into two distinct sections; emotional Eric, and analytical Eric. And then I started thinking that, if these two characteristics were separate entities, what would they look like?

So I went on that avatar maker thing that I love so very much, and I played around with it, creating these two people. So, here are the results of what emotional Eric would look like...


And here is what analytical Eric would look like...


So, for those of you reading this who know what I actually look like... well, it tells you a bit about which side of my personality I prefer people to see, doesn't it? It's not that the emotional side isn't there, it's just that... I don't like people to see it. I suppose it's a vulnerability thing.

There you go. And now you have briefly known what it is like to live inside my brain.


Nirvana- Lithium

I'm so happy 'cause today
I've found my friends...
They're in my head.
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you...
We broke our mirrors.
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care...
And I'm not scared.
Light my candles, in a daze,
'Cause I've found God
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Something to look forward to... [10 Jul 2004|08:03pm]
24 Sep 2004 - 2 Oct 2004

One of the greatest musical theatre pieces ever written, based on one of the greatest novels ever written, Les Miserables is the story of one man and his desire to make a difference. Set against the backdrop of a world split into strong class divisions, the show explores political and personal passions, the importance of the individual, and the role of God and Man in shaping destiny. The show is one of the most beloved pieces - by audiences and performers alike - and has been translated into many languages and performed all over the world.

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of SA & NT Inc is proud to present this production of Les Miserables at Her Majesty's Theatre in Sept-Oct 2004.

Starring Normie Rowe as Jean Valjean, this production features music by Claude-Michel Schoenberg and lyrics/book by Alain Boublil and Herbert Kretzmer.

Take the What High School
Stereotype Are You?

Why do I always get those kind of results? Hell, I even chose one of the God answers! *is embittered at the online quiz industry*

Well, the holidays are flying by and I've still barely done any work. I didn't even remember until Celia saw the Supporting Study that I'd dumped on my desk two weeks ago and asked if I was working on it.

I spent the last day putting up with entertaining Oma and my five year old cousin who are here from Canberra. And today I did the "wonderful daughter" thing and went to see Shrek 2 with my mum and my angsty bitch of a brother. I also spent much time in the book store clutching copies of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and a collection of art books. To which Mum gleefully replied "put it on your Christmas list!"... I despise that phrase.

Not much else has been happening, really. I haven't done anything vaguely interesting, like skydiving (mental note: go skydiving at some stage), and I've been feeling pretty good in general, so I have nothing to vent about. I'm exceedingly boring to read about at the moment. So, many apologies to those who read this as fervently as one would watch a quality episode of Passions... I have failed you.

I'm just rambling, really. I'm in one of those moods.

Well, I'm getting kicked off the computer now, so I shall spare you this.
