Just An Update

As you will probably have seen (if not, open your eyes!) I've changed the design of my blog. For most bloggers, it might signify a drastic change, or a change in opinion or something like that.
Just wanted to let you know, it's not. I just got bored of the old layout, and I had nothing better to do with my time (my social life is non-existent).So, let me know what you think; if you preferred the older one, or if the change is welcome :) And any suggestions, as always, are totally welcome.
Not much else has been happening in the life of moi...It's half term, my exams are a month and a bit away, and all I've got to look forward to is a whole two weeks of revision :(

"Happy Easter!!"
Easter is never a great time for me; no eggs (usually), scarcity of chocolate, etc, etc. But this year, (it came as a lovely surprise) my next door neighbour (we call her Grandma, even though we're not related, but she's super nice to us) got us (my siblings and I) Easter eggs :D:D:D (wow that was a lot of brackets)
So that was a super-nice addition to my Easter weekend.

Hmmmm...what else is there...OOOH!

Possibly the coolest album art ever
Hopefully, all of you know who 30 Seconds To Mars are (only the coolest band in the HISTORY of awesomeness!) Well, last week (18th of March- I don't even know if that was last week :L) they did this AWESOME thing! They sent the first copy of their new single 'Up In The Air' into SPACE *all jaws drop to the floor*! And then it's debut play was from the INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION- in space! I know- crazy, innovative and superbly fantastic! I mean, have you ever heard anything as out of this world (pun intended)?!
And, as well as being truly legendary, Jared Leto (the lead singer) is gorgeous! (And I mean gorgeous like OMG-his-face-belongs-to-an-angel type gorgeous) You should totally Google Image him (I would put a picture here, but my dad is totally watching over my shoulder, and he'll be all like "wtf!" at me, so...just image search him)

Anyway, after that little (okay, total) freak-out, I'm going to sign out, so enjoy your Easter/half term week/sorry if you have to go to work or school tomorrow.

xx talk soon

The Little Things In Life

Hey everyone :)
I've missed you- and I'm sure you've all missed me *conspicuous silence*
Uh, anyway, I thought I'd do another post on the little things in life, as, sadly, I have been concentrating on the big things in life; making big decisions, trying (and failing) to understand Statistics 1 (A Level Maths = the bane of my LIFE)
And sadly, I have been missing out on some of the little things in life. So without further ado, I would like to introduce you to....

Toffee Sundaes
      (No copyright infringement intended :P)
Oh. My. God. You've never tried the toffee sundaes at McDonald's??!! Right, I don't care HOW cold it is wherever you are right now, grab your purse, use any means necessary to get to your nearest McDonald's and BUY A TOFFEE SUNDAE! And then leave me a comment telling me how much you enjoyed it :)
Me and my Best Friend went shopping on Monday, and decided we both wanted icecream, and then we went into McDonald's and I got a toffee sundae and it was FABULOUS!!

Getting Things In The Post
Seriously, this is one of the best feelings in the world! I usually get excited when there's anything addressed to me in the post, but the best ones are when you get sent a letter from a friend. It's like email- but ten times better!
This is literally what my face looks like when I get a letter
Being Complimented By People
For example, once I was told that I have a voice like sweets, and I'm not kidding, it made me soooo happy! The same can be said for getting given a compliment that you really didn't expect (and no, I don't mean one of those really mean ones that are dressed up like compliments, but are really insults. If you're that kind of person, please change your ways, or I'll be forced to tell you you're a meanie. I'm serious.)
Giving A Compliment To Someone
It's a world of give and take. The feeling I get from giving other people compliments trumps being given a compliment.So make someone's day tomorrow, and give them a compliment. Who knows- maybe it'll make their day.

When You Find Someone Else Who's Seen That Obscure Movie You Love That No One Else Has Ever Seen
Need I say more? Once, I made friends with this guy (he was Australian, and he was such a great guy) and I found out that he loved the Riddick movies! (If you know what I'm talking about, you're officially one of my best friends :P) That was one of the nice little things I remember, because everyone else who I asked about the movie was like "What? That sounds like an awful movie."

This picture is only here, because I am obssesed with the movie :L

Exciting Times :3

Hello to all my many followers :) I know you missed me a lot, and I feel like I have been neglecting you guys, on account of having soooo much work to do :( So I apologize

On the upside, now I have a lot of things to talk to you about! Things like.... ummmmm (dammit, my life is sooo boring, after almost two weeks, I still haven't accumulated a plethora of topics to dazzle people with!!)

Hmmm... oooh, that's what I can tell you all about:

Recently, I applied for a writing competition- The Sony Young Movellist Of The Year Competition, which is basically a writing competition for Young Adult fiction writers, of which I am an aspirer (you get what I mean, right?) So far, I've had some really positive feedback on my entry from other aspiring writers, and I'm feeling quite good about my chances #fingerscrossed

Here's a little background info on my story :)
A concept cover for my story. What do you think?

Harley, wakes up in the Facility, with no memory of who she is, where she came from and why she is there. She finds out that she is one of a small percentage of people with a special gene; a gene that grants her abilities beyond the capabilities of normal humans. But as she spends more time at the Facility, learning to harness and develop her powers, she finds out about a sinister plot, involving her and the other "above average" kids at the Facility. And when Harley discovers the truth about her past, she realizes that she has to escape the Facility, no matter what the cost.

So if you like superpowers, superheroes, or any of the above, why not check it out? I'd love it if you'd leave me some comments, telling me what you think, either here, or on the website: Project GAIA; Gene Alteration, Implantation and Advancement

Mum Always Knows Best

This weekend, me, my mum, and my two sisters went shopping in town. It was nice, as we haven't spent much time together for a while, and we had a whale of a time! Anyway, at some point, we were outside Hollister when a friend of my mum and her daughter spotted us and started chit-chatting with us. As I didn't know them very well, I was kinda not paying attention to their conversation and then I noticed something!

Let me set the scene for you:
I glanced around. The sun was shining down (as the area we were in has a sort of open top) and the birds were chirping. And then I saw this guy- this super good-looking guy, with nice hair and a really nice smile; who was actually looking straight at me. "But that can't be," I thought to myself. Why on earth would he be staring at me? I turned around and looked behind me (because he had to have been staring intensely at someone else). But there was no one else there. "Could it be?" Finally, I was actually getting noticed by a guy! 

I recounted this tale to my mother, and she enlightened me a little with her version of what actually happened.
That intense stare he was giving me, was actually because he was checking out my sweater, and trying to figure out if it was a guy's or a girl's sweater- because he was gay! (that would explain the perfectly coiffed hair and flawless skin) That look that I'd mistaken as interest was actually a look of concentration, as he attempted to check which side the buttons were on, and I'd just assumed he was staring at me! ;) But it was the sweater, obviously. How could I have been so silly? :P

What on earth would I do without you, mum, to explain these things to me? #har-de-har

But don't worry, my mum isn't this evil

p.s: I still think he was checking me out ;)
