Best of 2012!

It's the last day of 2012. I have my mixed feelings. 2012 has overall been bittersweet. I AM looking forward to 2013. I hope good things will happen. (Plus I turn 16.)

Let's have a pretty watch picture to kick start this long blog post.

So, I am just going to ramble on at you guys and talk about all the things or changes that happened this past year. I am going to miss out all the bad stuff because frankly, I have forgotten most of it.

In March, I officially went from 14 to 15. And it was the most awesome birthday ever! My friends, who are all totally epic people, threw me a surprise party! (It was on a Saturday because my birthday was on a weekday.) It was amazing. I had no idea and we all went out to Nando's for nice food and went and saw the Hunger Games when it came out. You guys know I love my bessies (Erin and Beth). My parents also threw me a surprise. They (and my sister) gave me an ipad! The new ipad (3) that came out near my birthday. It's white. I LOVE white electronics. It's my thing. All my electronics got to be white. It's currently in a blue Hello Kitty case. But it's dying. So I need to get a new one soon. It was like the best 15th birthday ever!

I had a HUGE haircut in mid-March. I love my long hair. I have (near) always had long hair. That's like the only thing anyone compliments me on, that I have pretty hair. So something happened and I just decided I need to big haircut. Before the cut, my hair was just a little above my hip. Then I had a huge haircut. The hairdresser I had was actually shocked I wanted to cut it. Afterwards, it was just a bit below my shoulders and I got a side fringe. So woo~ for a big girl haircut!

I passed my piano exam and my music theory during the summer. So glad that's over. I hate exams. They are evil and should die. (Personification, GO!)

Oh, my baby sister turned 13 this year! Aww, she is finally a teenager. But it's a shame she is still like mentally 7. Nah, she liked being 13 and an official teenager. But seriously, she is the most annoying thing like ever.

Favourite Manga this year: Katekyo Hitman Reborn!

It caused me great sorrow when it finished. Yes, I was very close to tears, as are many KHR fans. It is an absolutely awesome manga and it has the greatest graphics and I JUST FRICKING LOVE IT! The ending was disappointing but I will nevertheless love it. I also like the anime but it's nothing compared to the brilliance of the manga. If you haven't even heard of it, YOU ARE MISSING OUT BIG TIME (and you have not lived.)

I also started reading again this year. Like reading YA frictions in my free time. But, since I haven't read in ages... I can count the number of books I read this year with my fingers.

  • Divergent by Veronica Roth
  • Yesterday's Sun by Amanda Brooke
  • Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
  • Snowed Over by Angie Staton
Don't worry, I have a enormous YA to-read list that I will eventually complete. I did try to read the Hunger Games, since I loved the movie and everyone love the trilogy. I have the book but I just can't get past the first 18 pages. It just didn't have me hooked. Yes, I love and prefer Divergent. That book was amazing.

Favourite TV Show: How I Met Your Mother & Once Upon A Time

I LOVE THESE TWO SHOWS! They are actually my all time favourite shows. I spent the entire summer watching all 7 seasons of HIMYM and season 1 of OUAT. I am still following the show and it's sad that everything is on winter hiatus. But seriously, I can not express how much I love these shows in just words.

I moved house this year. Cleaning and packing was hell but I love my new room. So it's all good.

NEW PHONE! Can't believe I didn't mention this earlier. I had quite a bad phone for a year and a half. But I love my new phone. It's the Nokia Lumia 900 in white. I don't know why it gets all the crap for being a windows 8 phone but in my opinion, it's a good phone. 

My favourite music list is way too long! So I will just let you enjoy all the Music Madness Monday and the ones to come. Because as I have said, music is my life.

My favourite movie list is also far too long. So, I will just mention some like... The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, Pitch Perfect... etc. And I joined the Young Tyneside Programmers this year. It's awesome because it's all about movies. So yay for that. 

I am a huge nail polish junkie. So I am more than happy that this year, my nail polish collection double in size! My favourite nail polish I got this year is either any of my magnetic ones or OPI Skyfall. But I am still a black, taupe or light pink nail polish girl. 

Last but definitely not least... THIS BLOG! I started this blog this year and I am really happy I did. I really enjoy blogging and it's super fun. I love all the people who would take time to read my blog. I am looking forward to continuing this blog next year, I have tons more to write. This blog and my deviantart account has been websites that entertained my boredom this year.

That is all. Wow, it really was a long post. I have enjoyed 2012 a lot and I look forward to the fun of 2013!

A sparkle to summarise the magic of a year.

Happy New Year! 

Love, Ka-Ching xxx

Wonderful Silver Screen: 4 Seen. 2 Going to See

2 weeks (exactly) of holiday gives me a lot of time to spend on nothing. So, since I am a huge movie person... I did spent most of it watching movies and sometimes TV series. Some were old and some were more recent. So here are some movies that I saw that came out recently. ^_^ (Hope you like the okay-ish segment title!)


4 Seen





1. The Iron Lady 


Genre: Biography, Drama, History 

Starring: Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, Alexandra Roach, Harry Lloyd

Storyline: An Elderly Margaret Thatcher talks to the imagines presence of her recently deceased husband as she struggles to come to terms with his death while scenes from her life, from girlhood to British prime minister, intervene. 

Awesomeness: Great acting. Oscar-winners. 

Not-so-awesomeness: It's a biography which means it's rather flat and dull, dry. 

Rating: 7.1 / 10 




2. The Odd Life of Timothy Green


Genre: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

Starring: Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, CJ Adams, Odeya Rush, Rosemarie DeWitt

Storyline: A childless couple bury a box in their backyard, containing all of their wishes for an infant. Soon, a boy is born, though Timothy Green is not all that he appears. 

Awesomeness: Good family movies. Touching, poignant. 

Not-so-awesomeness: WHY ARE ALL CHINESE ORPHAN GIRLS CALLED LILY?! Sorry, but it's just annoyiong. Another thing, the kid was like... 10? He fell in love?! A little young in my opinion. 

Rating: 6.5 / 10




3. The Five-Year Engagement 


Genre: Romance, Comedy

Starring: Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Jacki Weaver

Storyline: One year after meeting, Tom proposes to his girlfriend, Violent. But unepected events keep tripping them up as they look to walk down the aisle together, over a 5 years period. 

Awesomness: Jason Segel is one of my favourite actor (since I love How I Met Your Mother). A sweet rom-com. It has an awesome wedding at the end.

Not-so-awesomeness: 5 years is a bit too dragged on. There were too many "sex" scenes. 

Rating: 7.1 / 10



4. Midnight in Paris


Genre: Romance, Comedy, Fantasy

Starring: Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen, Nina Arianda, Corey Stoll

Storyline: While on a trip to Paris with his fiance's family, a nostalgic screenwriter finds himself mysteriously going back to the 1920s everyday at midnight.


This is my first Woody Allen film. I am not sure if I should be ashamed or not that I have never seen a Woody Allen film before. I watched this movie with my mother and she said at the end that it's a brilliant movie, considering that recent Woody Allen films has gone pear-shaped. She hasn't seen one in ages, and apparently the old ones are quite good. I liked this movie, not quite sure how much. 

This movie did one thing for me that I am absolutely delighted about. Tom Hiddleston was F. Scott Fitzgerald! You are probably wondering why I am so happy about that. That's because I have to read The Great Gatsby as part of my English Literature set text. People are going to say how good the book is but I am going to be spending at least 2 months studying it. Knowing Tom Hiddleston (who is awesome) was Fitzgerald made my day. Another thing, Erin, who I have mentioned before, she is an-absolute-video-games-nerd (and proud) nearly screamed in the lesson, when we got the book, and found out that Zelda was Fitzgerald's wife. She loves any Zelda games. It was actually quite hilarious that she freaked out.

Awesomeness: The Fitzgeralds. TIME TRAVEL (I love anything related to time travelling).

Not-so-awesomeness: Woody Allen's style takes a while to get used to. The modern characters, e.g. Inez (Rachel McAdams), is annoying and bitchy. 

Rating: 8.0 / 10

2 Going to See


Rise of the Guardians


Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Starring (voice): Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher

Storyline: When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs, and imaginations of children all over the world. 

I am a huge sucker for good, funny animation movies that are not Disney. This one looks amazing! I am so looking forward to see it. The trailer looks hilarious. Plus Jack Frost is like one of the most good looking animated character! And hey! You don't see a lot of Santas with tattoos. 


Les Miserables


Genre: Musical, Drama, Romance

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Russewl Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Samantha Barks

Storyline: In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean, who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole, agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's daughter, Cosette. The fateful decision changes their lives forever. (If you don't know the plot to Les Mis, you should be ashamed.)

This just looks amazing! The trailer does so much to a movie. I am just lost for words to say how much I am looking forward to see this movie. I am just going to say: I MUST SEE THIS!

I am ill at the moment so I am going to go back to drinking my tea and watch more movies.
Sayonara!

Top 5: Awesome Presents

Hello Sleepy Dreamers! Happy Boxing Day!

Presents are awesome. People would claim that surprises are better. But NO! They are not. Surprises are great, but I have an awful surprise face so I must say presents are more awesome. Since it's Boxing Day and I am stuck at home being bored... I am going to do the top 5 most awesome presents you can receive. These are all just my opinion and what I would loved, but I am sure everyone would like these too. Let's say it's like my present (Christmas) wishlist.

1. Dr Martens Boots

Oh my gosh! I am like in love with the Dr Marten Boots. The classic ones. I am not so into the new ones. I mean, the original boots are just beauty in a pair of shoes. I have a bad habit of noticing nice shoes in whatever I am watching, like films, animes or even just in posters. I always notice cool shoes, especially boots. 

Guess what? My parents are actually getting me a pair for the New Year! I am so excited! It's like a present to celebrate the New Year, instead of Christmas. I don't know why but I prefer celebrating New Year? I did say that they are really expensive but my parents insisted on getting me a pair because of how much I love it and they just love me. So YAY!


Yes, I have decided to go with the classic, shiny red ones. They are so adorable! They are also very versatile so I can wear it most of the year. Black would be more versatile but red does go with a lot of things. 

Okay, how I decided that I love Dr Marten boots was because I was looking through my kid photos a few months ago. I saw my 4 years old? (I can't remember exactly how old I was) wearing a pair of red Dr Martens. It was really funny because I was super jealous of mini me that I had awesome shoes.  What I also discovered was that:
  1. I was a fricking awesome kid.
  2. I had and still have cool fashion taste.

Moreover, I saw Liz Gilles (Jade) wearing a pair in victorious. Yes, I am 15 and I watch victorious when I am bored. Just because I love Liz Gilles and it's a bit of a guilty pleasure. Liz has such awesome fashion and her hair is amazing. She totally rocked the Dr Martens! Okay, now I am considering to go with this dark cherry colour instead of the classic red shiny one. Hmm......



How classy is this?! This pattern is really pretty.
I am just not that kind of girl who would wear this though.

These are adorable! I love Hello Kitty. 

2. Perfume - Nina by Nina Ricci


Fresh, magical and floral scent blended together with calabrese, lemon and lime, caipirinha, red toffee apple, vanilla infusion, moonflower, peony petals, apple tree wood, cotton musk and white cadar. 




This is my all time favourite perfume ever! I have loved this for years and sadly, I don't own a bottle. Wish I do but I am hopefully getting it soon. It just smells so nice and floral and gosh! I am just in love with this scent. Totally check it our if you haven't. Actually, my mum is getting me this. YAY!

3. Onesie


As sad as it sounds, I have not had a onesie before. I am dying to get one. They look all warm and cosy for the winter and cold weather. I do have a fluffy pink blanket at the moment, but I really want a proper onesie. 








These two are gorgeous! But they are pricey so I did search around town and found a really nice and similar one at Republic. They had a really nice navy blue one with pink and white patterns on it. However, that was also quite pricey, coming to about 50 pounds. I then found a nice one at New Look, which I debated on getting on not, because it was an okay price and the pattern was nice. I might just even get one online when I find a perfect one.

4. Victorinox Pocket Knife

I have to admit, but I do really want a set of white screwdrivers, some matches and a lighter. Those are things I would want, but not the utmost awesome. However, I really really want my own pocket knife. One with my name on would be cool but I just "need" a Victorinox pocket knife. They are not that expensive so I am totally asking my dad to get me one. I don't know if he would actually say yes, considering he still think of my as tofu. He did gave me his a few days ago. But I want my own one. Plus my little sister and mum decided that I am FAR TOO dangerous with a weapon and they want to live. So I am returning my dad's awesome one to him. There are 3 types that I would love to get:
  1. Classic. (I do love things that are classy classic) 
  2. Tomo
  3. Deluxe Tinker 
Classic
Tomo - Mint Green
Super Tinker

5. Mug / Travel Mug

Who doesn't love a cute mug?! I do love adorable ceramic mugs. Especially a travel mug. Sadly, I don't collect cute mugs. But they make really good presents. They don't even have to be cute! Sometimes, the mugs with meaningful words or photos on are also delightful. My little sister got me a ceramic travel mug! She is sort of nice like that, given that she doesn't annoy me. She annoys me 70% of the time. Here are some awesome and cute mugs I found on pinterest. 






P.S. How awesome would it be to get a designer handbag? Wish I have one. But that's not happening anytime soon. These two are my favourites. 


P.P.S. Here's my favourite presents from my parents! 

I love my new checked pjs!

Christmas Eve Music Madness & Questionnaire

Hello Christmasy and Sparkly Dreamers! 

Yes, it's Christmas Eve! I am excited for Christmas tomorrow. Okay, maybe not that much. My dad is really ill at the moment so I doubt I am having a fantastic Christmas dinner tomorrow. But that's not going to break my spirit! 

Before I start the little questionnaire (@ Amarixe)... because it's Christmas Eve, if anyone asked me if I believe in Santa? HELLYEAH! Who doesn't?! 

1.) Mood:
I am not sure. I think it's a mix of hungry, CHRISTMAS and boredom. 

2.) Which is your favourite holiday to celebrate?
It's close between Christmas or New Year's Day. Christmas is brilliant because everyone is so into the spirit and it's beautiful everywhere with decorations. But New Year's Day is also awesome because it celebrates a New Year. 

3.) Who do you typically spend your favourite holiday with?
Ma famille (Sorry, just had to go French) - Mum, Dad, Sister

4.) Current nail polish(es):
Oh gosh! Okay, I am girl who is crazy with nail polishes as I have said before. So here's the list:

  • GOSH - Forest Floor
  • China Glaze - Ruby Deer
  • China Glaze - Phat Santa
  • China Glaze - Fairy Dust
  • Color Club - Perfect Mol-Ten
  • Silver Crackle

5.) Holiday shopping: do you get it done early or leave it until the last minute?
I am definitely a do-it-early person. I get presents ages in advance, usually. This year, I got most things at the last minute and I still have to get my two bessies their presents, but we agreed to give afterwards because of our awful mock exams which took like a month off my timetable. 

6.) Current outfit:

  • Skelanimals long-sleeve t-shirt. It has a sequinned and sparkly Jack on it. Skelanimals are awesome and adorable
  • cream Animal hoodie
  • Purple skinnys
  • FLUFFY SOCKS! AND THEY ARE PINK!

7.) Holiday gifts: do you enjoy giving or receiving gifts more?
Definitely giving presents. I love to see people's happy faces when they open their surprises. Seeing people's surprise faces are the best! It's priceless! 

8.) What is your favourite holiday tradition?
I don't think my family has one! -sadface- I wish I have one, but I don't. 

9.) What is your favourite holiday treat?
Apple pie with cornish ice-cream. Lots of hot chocolate with 4x the cream on top. 

10.) Weekly goals:
To enjoy spending time with my family and reading (currently back into that) 

Since it's Christmas Eve and I promised that I would have Christmasy music favourites today... Enjoy!



I love Medleys. So let's have a good festive one!



Sorry, I don't like Justin Bieber. He just ruins the song. This cover is so much better! At least it does the song some justice.



Winter Wonderland is a Christmas song for everyone and everyone needs a little Michael Buble for Christmas.


Last but definitely not least... 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS! Okay, I admit I don't know any of the lyrics. But hey! Everyone loves 12 Days of Christmas! (Plus this version has lyrics! Yay!) My little sister and I tried to remember all 12 days and sing it really fast. We failed, and she cheated. 

Hope you are blasting the songs and having a lot of festive, holiday fun with your families.

Merry Christmas! 


Love, Ka-Ching xxx

Happy 21.12.12 Apocalypse! I'm Joking

First thing first, I don't believe it's the end of the world today. 

I am just chilling at home right now, TGIF! Got my favourite flavour Pringles today, Texas BBQ Sauce. It's so good!

I had a weird cup of hot chocolate today. Yes, I did make it myself. It didn't taste weird, although it wasn't sweet enough. The weird thing was that my dad walked past and said: Why you drinking coffee? Then my little sister walked past and said: Why you drinking warm Ribena? I was like: -unimpressed- IT'S HOT CHOCOLATE! 

I haven't done my nails in months because school doesn't allow it but I have finally found time to do my nails! Now it's all green and red and christmasy. I also did my little sister's nails. Yes, she called me weird again. I don't do my nails in a logical pattern. Tbf, I don't do much logically. I also got her some new nail polishes as Christmas presents. They are all sparkly and cute. 

Now I feel like drawing, I might go and do that. 

Motivational Poster, GO!
Yes, live life to the fullest because we are living.

Music Madness: 3 Covers. 2 Singles. 1 OST

I am very sorry for the 3 days late music post. I ended up spending the entirety of Monday watching chick flicks (rom com) with my mother. We watched Just Like Heaven and Kate & Leopold. They were both classic rom coms, I have no idea why I haven't seen it before. Then my internet went really spazzy, so I couldn't do anything. Well, it's better late than never!

3 Covers


Try by Pink



This is my favourite cover! Jayesslee are awesome and this cover is just beautiful.



I just really like it. Simple logic.



Her voice is just stunning.

2 Singles


Lovebird by Leona Lewis


I heard this on the radio a few days ago, googled it and realised it was Leona Lewis and I LOVE IT! It's such a pretty song. The video is also amazing. Her voice has just improve so much and the song is lovely. Totally check it out. I attempted to sing this. I failed, miserably. 

Troublemaker by Olly Murs feat. Flo Rida


This song is so cheesy but I had it stuck in my head for days. It's so catchy! The chrous is awesome. Since I am not much of a rap person, I did not like Flo Rida's part. Sorry for all those Flo Rida fans out there, I don't like him. But Olly Murs was brilliant in this song. 

1 OST


Cups - Pitch Perfect (Anna Kendrick)



Pitch Perfect was my music post last Monday. Yes, I adore this movie. It's flipping awesome. My little sister would agree with me. Cups (You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone) by Anna Kendrick is just fantastic! I think she might even be one of my favourite actresses. Her voice is amazing and the song is so easy to sing. But putting it together with the cup trick is hard. Yes, I have tried and failed. 

P.S. Christmasy music favourites are coming next Monday, on Christmas Eve! 

P.P.S Can't you wait until tomorrow? It's 21.12.12!

I'm Officially In Holiday Spirit And No More School This Year!

Today has been the first official day of my lovely Christmas holiday. Yes, I love staying at home, lazying around and doing absolutely nothing.

Actually, it's more like I have been confined to my house for the next few days. I actually injured my right heel/ankle two days ago, which is unfortunate. If you are wondering what happened, a metal door at school smashed into the back of my ankle and blood just soaked my tights. So yeah, I have been having difficulties walking for the past few days since it's really painful. I know you are all gasping at the horror of how it sounds but it's seriously not that bad. It's not that painful. The wound isn't big at all, but it does cause pain when I put my heel down. My dad thought I was made of tofu when he sprayed those spray-on plaster thing onto my wound. I was like: NO Dad, I am not 4 any more. I have a high tolerance to pain, which is slightly unnerving. So I am resting at home for a few days.

Anyway, enough of the horrible stuff... IT'S CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY!!!!! woooo~ 

I am super exciting because 
1. There is going to be no school for like 3 weeks. 
2. Christmas 
and 3. New Year

My school broke up (ended) at 12 noon yesterday. My metro had a stupid 20 minutes delay in the morning so I ended up with freezing toes because school black pumps does not keep your feet warm. School was interesting. My class played Articulate in English, which is the only lesson I got, because my teacher is so nice and my class is just awesome. I got applauded just because I was an awesome person. Yes yes, I am very very awesome. Then I got my end of term report which was quite good. I was happy with it, mainly because all the grades were based upon our mock exam results and I did quite well in that. Choir performance at the last assembly was interesting. Yes, I am in the choir. We sang a carol and the entire school sang like a Christmas medley. That was interesting. I can not put it any other way. I don't feel anxiety like a normal person would. I have little emotions, so if sometime upsets me, you sure know it's awful. You have been warned. All in all, it was a good end to this year at school.  

I basically got home and did sod all. Okay, I spend ages on the internet looking through random stuff... like what good YA books came out this year and other people's blogs etc and listened music and talked to my friends until really late. My friend, Erin, just went to South Africa this morning for Christmas. I bet she is going to have lots of fun. I hope so too. I also talked about Santa with another friend. Now that was fun. It's hilarious when you talk about Santa in general anyway.

I woke up at like 1 o'clock in the afternoon today because I am so tired. School just drains any energy you have got in you. I just spent my entire day watching random videos and stuff. Nothing interesting at all. I just wanted to let you guys know what I have been up to. Hope this post didn't bore you that much. 


A pretty photo I found to kick-start the holiday. ^_^

12 December 2012

It's 12.12.12!

Happy 12. 12. 12!!! 

I don't know how you have enjoyed this awesome day but I have been stuck in school. It  wasn't all that bad. My Geography and Games teachers were so nice and let me off like loads of work. So YAY for that! I had a good Christmas-themed dancing class. I just finished the new Terry's chocolate orange ice cream. I have also been obsessed with L.O.V.E by Nat King Cole today. It's such a sweet song and it's just been stuck in my head all day. But yeah, life has been generally good. 

Here's something delightful to end the awesome day ^_^

Movie? Madness Monday: Pitch Perfect

Yeah yeah, it's Monday and it's suppose to be music. But I haven't really been music-ing that much for the past week and I thought: well, movie begins with a M. I know film is better? I like movie though, they mean the same thing. So, since I watched a movie on Saturday and it was great and I don't have any music things to say...... new segment! and yes, it's called Movie Madness Monday. Actually, less of a new segment and more of Madness Monday can swap between movie and music. 

Pitch Perfect


#GETPITCHSLAPPED

Release: 2012

Genre: Music, Comedy, Romance

Starring: Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Skylar Astin, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp

Storyline: The Barden Bellas are a collegiate, all-girls a cappella singing group thriving on female pop songs and their perfect looks. After a disastrous failing at last year's finals, they are forced to regroup. Among the new recruits is freshman Beca, an independent, aspiring DJ with no interest in the college life. But after she meets Jesse, from the rival all-male a cappella group, Beca has a new outlook and takes it upon herself to help the Bellas find their new look and sound and get back into the competition.

This movie is so random and strange but oddly hilarious. I actually had a great time watching this. Although it was predictable, it was overall very enjoyable. The predictable aspect maybe due to the fact that I have seen a lot of rom-com and they get VERY predictable since they are all the same. Like the plot line goes:

Normal--Increase in happiness--PEAK--Decrease by 30%--Goes back up and TADA! Happily every after

It's probably easier to understand if you draw a line on a graph, but I am too lazy to bother with that. 

Beca and Jesse in the movie were just so cute! I was awwww-ing at the end cos it was adorable. Watch it, then you would know what I mean. 

I loved Anna Kendrick in it. I didn't know she can sing, and she was really good! I like her normally but the character and her was such a good match, she did an amazing job. I feel like I haven't seen Brittany Snow in a movie in ages. That is probably just me but she was great. Not really used to her with the browny hair though. 

Awesomeness: Singing. Hilarious. Just odd.

Not-so-awesomeness: Predictable. Weird and awkward.

Rating: 7.8 / 10

Guess what? YOU JUST GOT INCEPTIONED! Sorry, that was a bit dramatic. But seriously, I said I changed it to movie but the movie is about music! HA! I am just so awesome like this.

Feeling Christmasy

It's 16 days until Christmas!

So I have been randomly drawing and I am also planning on drawing Christmas cards. I got a little bored so I started looking through Christmasy things on Pinterest. Here are some awesome Christmas stuff I found.









This one is my absolutely favourite. It's so cute. I wish I have decorations like this.

Let It Snow~

It's been so cold lately and I was planning on shouting at the sky if it doesn't snow soon. 

But but but... IT SNOWED! woo~ (Random raving and raising the roof and dancing) 

So I was in the middle of lesson when the snow started and my entire class was like... SNOW! and gosh! It was snowing so heavily. Well, on and off. Mostly very snowy. The ground even started layering snow. (Not sure if layer is the word, but you get what I mean?) 

At lunchtime, I literally asked my friends what christmasy songs are related to snowing and my friend was like :O There are loads! and I was like: -_- I know, I just can't remember. Then we just started singing Let It Snow and Winter Wonderland. And White Christmas. Given that I can't sing very well and usually sing really flatly, I failed. I couldn't even remember the lyrics to Winter Wonderland. Oh well, Christmas carols and songs are slightly over-rated. Plus our school did randomly play christmasy song for like 2 hours last Thursday. 

However, the snow is so pretty! The cold and wet, less so. Seriously, the snow is so pretty and pale and white. White is kind of my favourite colour? It's very clean and neat in my opinion. Perhaps it was the fact that we were all warm and cosy inside so my friend and I just sort of stared out the window and was like SNOW! 

Snow = Awesome. Enough said. 

I should really go outside and build a snowman, because I think there probably is enough snow. Being as lazy as I am, I prefer staying indoor, with a cup of hot green tea, which is what I am doing. So it's all good. 

Anyway, the weather forecast say that it will snow tomorrow as well. So yay! (Not that I really trust weather forecasts) It had stopped snowing for like 2 hours. Fingers crossed it starts snowing again. 

What the snow looks like outside my living room. So pretty!

P.S. I went to Belgium (school trip) to the battlefields. Actually, maybe it was Northern France? Well, we went to both. Basically, we were on a battlefield and it just started snowing. It was late October but I was like... YAY! But less so because I was on the middle of a field, all cold and wet and outdoors and I really just... wasn't going to embrace the snow. Who would want to freeze to death? 

P.P.S. I don't even want to imagine the mushy slush when the snow starts to melt. It's all brown and gross. Let's just hope it snows for a while.

SOTD #01

SOTD = Saying Of The Day

Think of saying also as a quote, like Quote Of The Day. I just sometimes forget where or who I am quoting from, so it's more of a saying. 

"The moment you think about giving up, think of the reason why you held on for so long."
