Why is it, that when I want LJ to detect my location, it comes up saying I'm in Edinburgh? I'M AN HOUR OUT OF EDINBURGH COMPUTER, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOOOOUT!

Anyway, I have a meme to do. Yay! Memes! Stopping boredom since the start of the interwebs.

I am curvaceous, vivacious and sounding slightly pretentious.
I would like to live in Toronto. We were considering moving there, but my mum said we couldn't due to what stage I'm at in school. And now...I miss it. I felt like I belonged in Canada.
I keep listening to the same bands on Spotify over and over and over and over...
I would like to go to Edinburgh and spend lots of money on music and Lush stuff and jewellery RIGHT NOW.
I dislike the media's effect on the world, but the UK in particular, and the bitchy, superficial people it has created.
I'm afraid of amounting to nothing, but wasps are a close second. I have got a phobia but I dislike it when people lump simple fears and phobias together.
I regret that I will not be attending your parties if you are a bitch to me.
I'm attracted to people with hooked noses. I don't try, honestly. Currently my obsession is Cupid's bow lips. Previous turn ons have included emo boys - thank God I'm past that - and really pale blue eyes.
I'm not quiet, I'm plotting. Genuinely. But not in an ominous way.
I sing when there's breath in my lungs and blood in my veins. Singing has taken over my life at the moment, and for the first time I feel like I have a release from all the work I have to do. It's making me feel optimistic and confident and I owe it all to my vocal chords :-D
I'll never accept your cheap and sinister lies! >:-( No. I don't know what I'm talking about either...
Seldom do I question people in authority.
I cry a lot. I like crying though. I'm not an emo kid, it just makes me calmer. Most of the time I'm sunshiney though :-)
I'm displeased by things not being in straight lines, the taste of gin and talking on the phone.
I'm confused when my art teacher forces me into a kiln cupboard and doesn't tell me why. True story, that happened yesterday!
I need a better social life.
I should probably be doing something more productive.

I can't believe it's been 8 months since I updated this thing.

Well, a lot has happened, I've fallen in unrequited love limerence (okay, no, that happened last October), fallen into a sadness and hopelessness of my limerent object leaving me, I've started to move on a year later, and I feel great. I've been to Canada, I've been to a degree show at the Glasgow School of Art. I've eaten doughnuts in the rain and had picnics in dining rooms. I've disassembled my bedroom door and bought a new violin.

And for today's news...

I feel like such a slut! I have pretty much thrown myself into being in a council schools choir, and part of my get-up-and-go attitude is down to the fact there's a possibility there'll be hot choirboys. But they're mainly like 18. So, I'm hoping my singing teacher's 14-year-old (14? 15 now maybe?) son will be there as he is more my kind of age, and is hopefully going to be good-looking. He's got the genes for it, kind of.

I DO WANT TO SING TOO, HONEST. THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL REASON I EXPRESSED INTEREST, THE CHOIRBOYS CAME LATER, OKAY?!

And I'm writing a 80's-pop-song inspired piece for string quartet in D minor. S'quite good so far.

 Oh my God, how long has it been since I last posted?! Too long! I think I'm trying not to come on here, my layout is screwing me over and offending me eyes. I really need to find a new layout and fix it!

It's my birthday tomorrow! I'm rather excited. Is it sad I'm most excited about going to the National Gallery? But it does have some really famous paintings there...so it's not too bad to be excited over it =P

I can't believe Britannia High is over =( I need to buy the soundtrack.

Fans of Little Women often divide along Jo/Amy lines. Jo was independent and smart, but Amy always seemed to get what she wanted and have more fun. Are you in the Jo camp or the Amy camp?
I never answer these things...But this drew my attention since I'm currently doing a play of Little Women.

I play Aunt March, so I suppose I should be in the Amy camp, but I can relate more to Jo. Amy annoys me!

 Eeek...Exams next week! I know I only have 7, but I'm still stressing...

Anyone got any fabulous de-stressing techniques?

 Not much to report.

I have exams next week and I'm stressing totally slightly.

Ummm...Miriam apparently wants a pet fish just so she can make it fat and "cute", then get bored with it and throw it at a window. I'm like "whatever". She's only saying that so she can shock people. I hope.

Much like Tracey Emin. I would rename her that, but Micah already decided Amy Winehouse was a fairer comparison.

Just me again, with pointless facts about my day that probably don't mean a whole lot to you!

I'm happy. Next week I have two days off school, and that Friday's apparently a dress-up day for Children In Need. And I have an inkling that The IT Crowd may be back on that Friday too. Happy!Chizz.

Next Thursday I get to skip hockey, geography and maths for the sake of my art - there's this artist coming in to do a workshop with us, which last 3 periods. Something to do with a link between English and art, and painting words and feelings or something. I'm curious, sounds interesting.

Speaking of art, I get the feeling I'm going to get eaten alive next time I go in, because I messed up my printing block. We were meant to glue on our stencils with the pencil-side up, so we could see, but I did mine the wrong way around...Cue the conversation.
Me: Do you glue the side with the pencil marks on it?
Rachel and Jess: Yes.
Me: *glues over pencil marks and puts it on my paper* Like that?
Rachel: Yeah.
Me: *takes it over to the drying rack and sees peoples with pencil marks on them* BUGGER, I'VE DONE IT THE WRONG WAY AROUND!!!"

Oh help.

Might go and watch Skins later with some ice-cream.

And does anyone know any good layout sites? I'm sick of looking at cupcakes.

 Well, I survived When A Stranger Calls!

My Halloween party last night was amazing! Not a lot to really elaborate on, apart from that. The film was so creepy, we were all shaking - the only times we properly screamed were when guisers came to the door and wouldn't stop knocking (it was scary at the time because the film's about a girl alone in a hosue and then there's strange noises...), and when the rat for "pin the tail on the rat" fell off the door and crashed. The rest of the time we were just like "ohmyGodohmyGodohmyGod!"...Especially at the end. But I've said to much. You'll have to watch it and find out for yourself.

I'm off to try and locate the photos from last night now!

 So the occasion is upon us (as "UndeadJournal" has proven), and I'm getting really excited.

I'm having a party on Friday night, including pinata, bobbing for apples, the doughnut game (where you tie the doughnut  to a string and have to limbo underneath it and bite it off the string), toasting marshmallows, spooky food, spooky music...and of course a horror film! I've bought When A Stranger Calls, Hide and Seek and The Butterfly Effect. The majority want to go with When A Stranger Calls, which I think's a good choice - I've heard it's the scariest so I'd be terrified to watch it on my own!

I'm dressing up as a gothic fairy. Black tutu, black lacy corset/top thing, big black wings, black and white stripy tights, black high heels, black lipstick, black wand...I'm hoping I'll find a way of powdering my face white before hand. Do you think talc would work?

General news: I met the violinist Rachel Barton Pine. I was in Edinburgh yesterday and some guy told me to go back to Aberdeen (I don't even sound Aberdonian...so what the hell?!). My biology teacher says she likes "the small, fun-sized bananas" which caused some hilarity today. Ummm...that's about it.

Or else I'm gonna let this thing slip. Which is not good. Had a pretty decent day today - got up. Had breakfast. Went for a walk in the rain. Came home. Practiced violin. Did my essay. Had relatives from Thailand over for lunch. Did art history work. And now I've been basically floating around the net for the past few hours. I'm in such a mood to write, I've got all these ideas in my head for a story I could write, but I just can't think of a way to get it down on paper...Or on the computer, for that matter. Ho-hum. May just procrastinate s'more.Here,have a Matisse painting.
