Things not to do when on ‘holiday.’

I started learning German again today. I had decided a few days before my final exam that I would start up again. I think the my use of “again” needs a bit of clarification. Back in the days when the dreaming of Tokio Hotel’s, instead of Horrors, was at it’s peak, I made my parents buy me a teach-yourself-german-kit, and I had started to ‘get into it,’ but then I was hit by my final year of school. Even though I am not as infatuated with Tokio Hotel as I once was, now seems the right time to recommence my lessons in this wonderful language.

Honestly though, I don’t know why I would want to do this because it’s just like still in school. Also as, I’ve said in a previous post, I’ve started writing again, which is not very holiday-like. However I think I spend much more time researching (trying to find good houses) than I actually do writing – which could, as a matter of fact, be good in the long run. And then there’s the reading. God damn it, these are supposed to be my holidays!!

I’m either going mental or it’s a way for my subconscious to remain in a education mode so that my mind doesn’t turn to mush when I go to uni. I think I’ll take that option.

Mind you, I have been playing Fable II a mighty lot so that could make up for my scholar-type activities, and I also enjoy the things that I have been doing so it’s not really that bad.

OH but I tell you what is bad! The fact that the current season of Merlin is going to be the last one ever! It’s so depressing. I’m going to buy the box set of it so that my mum can take series 3 and 4, that we have on their own to meet their fellows 1 and 2, back in the Philippines when she goes back for Christmas, and then I can be depressed forever watching it.

Oh and ya know, just mentioning that I’m going to see My Bloody Valentine in February. It’s just gonna be my, ya know, first 18+ concert and I’ll just be seeing a band that hasn’t come to Australia in maybe 21 years.

First world problems.

I should be happy. I just finished my final exam, which means that apart from graduation in two days, never have to go to school again. In a few months I’ll be off to university to learn my trade of journalism. I’m ready to start a new chapter of my life, but I just feel like I’m being held back.

If I was writing this blog post yesterday morning, my mood would be the complete opposite to it’s current status. It’s just been certain events in the past 24 hours that have led me to feel like shit and not good enough. I entered into this blog post preparing to write down everything I’m feeling now, but I don’t feel I will.

So I think I’ll just have to go to my favourite depression cure; Vampire Knight, so that I can at least my life is not as bad a Zero’s who abhors vampires, but is one himself. #fangirl4lyf

Actually, this sort of mood is great to write a new story that I just started writing. I haven’t written anything (well non school related) in months, so I’m really excited about this. This is the first thing that I have written without it tying in with any fanfictions, which is an achievement. It’s a period gothic inspired story which I’m rather fond of.

It’s true that writing stuff - well in this case typing – down actually helps to make you feel better. So smell ya later.

Midnights without Faris.

This time must just be my zen time for writing blogs. Maybe it’ll become routine, like before I go to sleep I have to read. So it’ll become a routine of blog, read, sleep. Maybe.

I just finished watching Midnight in Paris and it was so good. If you like Paris and the 1920’s it is the film for you! It goes on a journey through which a 20th century man, meets legendary writers and artists.

I’ve actually become really interested in art (and architecture) lately. As well as history, but I’ve always liked history, but I've started exploring beyond 19th century Brittan. I might do a post about some of the interesting things I’ve become fascinated at another time; one in which I am not half dead.

The only real flaw of the film is that there is not enough Adrien Brody; because not only is he a babe, he’s a brilliant actor. He plays Salvador Dali and their resemblance is uncanny!

Seriously, through, this is such a beautiful crafted and written film that you must watch!

Oh, you know how I said I just finished watching Midnight In Paris, I lie. I actually just finished – as in before I started writing this – watching the following video of my husband prancing around in a custom made jacket for a project that I’m not entirely sure what it is for myself. But watch the video and read more about it here.

P.S you know you love the title of this blog post.

Bad choices.

Honestly, it’s not one of the brightest ideas for me to start writing this considering I am absolutely exhausted. I’ll probably just end up stop writing this with the hopes of finishing it tomorrow, but never look at it again. So maybe I’ll keep it brief.

At the moment I am in the middle of my VCE exams. These ones are the real thing. They basically determine lives. Today I had my last maths one (there was two) which means that I never have to do maths again, and I had my English one a couple of days before that. I now only have Literature, Business Management and Italian left.

Now instead of studying, a lot of the time I go on tumblr ( in case you didn’t know) or play games. I have to keep telling myself that I only have to wait 16 more days till can play The Sims without reserve. But the temptation of my five generation family often proves too much.

Well let me make a good choice right now and go to bed. I can’t believe that I actually made it to the end of this post. Maybe it is a sign that in the near future of 16 days I actually may continue to update my blog. Eh, I doubt it.
