Being floaty

Standard

Hi again,

 

So I was listening to Radiohead last night, (good band, occasionally depressing) and after a while I found myself sort of going into a trance-y state. It was really weird. It was like floating but not floating at the same time. And it got all philosophical and I was like “What is the meaning of life? Why do I exist?” 

And then I stopped because I was scaring myself.

But sometimes music makes you feel that way. It helps you escape and stop thinking about what goes on in your normal life. It can even make you nostalgic for a decade you weren’t even alive in. That’s why I love it. It’s why I want to hit the big time one day, I don’t want it for the money, but it would be awesome to have a random stranger walk up to you in the middle of the street and say something like “Your songs are okay!” It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s all I really want to do.

God, that was so cheesy. Excuse me while I throw up at my own writing.

Anyway, the song for today. This was the Radiohead thing I was listening to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uP1Klk7fNTo

AND A SECRET SONG! I haven’t done one of these for ages. This band is usually screamy, but one of my friends introduced me to this song and I fell in love with it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzZMSKLZLjc

My world

Standard

Hallo

So after looking at the thing I did about procrastination, it made me realise how much time I spend in my head instead of the actual world. And I know that sounded a bit weird, but let me try and explain.

Ever since I was little, I’ve never really had imaginary friends. Or rather, I did, but I didn’t believe in them like some people do/did. Instead, I would create this world where normal people would sometimes get dragged in and become gods/vampires/angels/fairies/whatever I was obsessed with at the time. But over time it sort of grew.

I was clever for my age (not bragging, or anything :D) and I was especially big on reading. As I read more stuff, I began taking small stuff from the books I liked and putting them in my world. This grew to films, TV shows, or even stuff that happened in real life. And I still do it.

Now it’s huge with countries and wars and religions and politics, and I know it isn’t exactly normal, but to be completely honest, it’s fun. I can do anything with my individual characters, make them go on crazy adventures or just make them have a medieval family drama. And it sort of feels cool that so many people and things came from one person, and that the one person isn’t J.K. Rowling, or Suzanne Collins.

Anyone else do this?? Maybe it’s actually normal, but nobody talks about it.

…Or maybe I’m just weird.

And now the music.

This song isn’t usually my sort of music at all, but it just makes me feel all warm ‘n fuzzy inside. :3

Seeeee yoooooou…..

 

I fail at a film review

Standard

Me again and stuff.

 

So, because of it being the Easter Holidays *yay* I’ve been doing more interesting stuff over the past few days. One of these interesting things is watching films/movies/whatchemacallems.

First I went to see Divergent, which most of you have heard of probably almost definitely maybe. I’d seen loads of stuff about it and people talking about it on the interweb that I thought “Why not?” So I went out with a couple of friends to see it. By about fifteen minutes in, I was Tris and my friend was Christina. Do you think I would make a good Tris? I would totally be a good Tris what with my amazing weaponry skills and not-afraid-of-heightness.

Kidding.

I think I nearly fell off my seat once because of all the THRILLING ACTIONNESS, (Yay more capslock :D) and there were also quite a few cool plot twists which made it more awesome.

 

Then I FINALLY (capslock count: 2) bought Frozen which I had been wanting to buy for ages because I didn’t get the chance to see it while it was in the cinemas.

My only problem with it was that I already knew all the songs off by heart, and without knowing the storyline I got myself really hyped for it. I think that if I didn’t try to raise my expectations too much, I would have liked it a lot more.

But Idina Menzel was in it, so y’know, all forgiven. She has been my idol since I first saw her on Glee doing that duet thing as Rachel’s mother. (YES I WATCH GLEE DON’T JUDGE ME…..Capslock count: 3)

So I’m sorry to be like everyone else at the moment, but my song for today is this one. And It is the PROPER VERSION.(4) Not Demi Lovato’s. Because that one isn’t musical theatre enough.

Also, what character would you guys be if you could be any fictional character? I probably wouldn’t be Tris, really. Probably Max from the Maximum Ride series. Or Ella, also from Maximum ride. ‘Cause y’know, Iggy…

*Cough cough* ANYWAY. (5)

See ya later, interweb 😀

 

THE VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD

Standard

Guysguysguys!

I’ve been nominated for something called the Versatile Blogger Award, which is basically a thing for unique blogs and stuff. I was awarded by this awesome person: http://blackfireblazing.wordpress.com/ (Sorry I’m not clever with links and stuff…)

So now I have to tell you seven things about myself? Mkay then…

1. My Favourite band is My Chemical Romance.
2. I’ve been making up this world in my head since I was six so that now I have an insanely complex universe with politics and religions and wars and EVERYTHING.
3. My teacher thought that I liked Cliff Richard until I showed him all the badges on my bag.
4.I have a cat that sits on my shoulder and stays there like a parrot when I do stuff around the house.
5. I used to have a crush on Jack Frost from Rise Of The Guardians. (SHUTUPICANSEEYOUJUDJUNGMEDONTJUDGE)
6.I love to draw anime, even though I can’t.
7. I have the weirdest dress sense in the universe because I like to confuse people.

I will think of who to nominate for the award thing later when I actually follow that many people. D:

Until then, byeeeeeeeeeeeeee 😀

Making up stories and stuff/procrastinating

Standard

Halloooooooooooo….

So recently I’ve been sort of sucked into this other blog thing I do, (Titch’s Blog) and it sort of made me realise how much time I spend imagining things instead of doing them.
I’m one of those people who is just a GIANT PROCRASTINATOR, and because of this, I um, procrastinate.

A lot.

EXAMPLE:

So I’ll be sitting at home doing homework stuff when BLAM, the yolo bomb explodes rainbows and unicorns and I realise that I could be doing better things with my time like looking up Maximum Ride fanart, or watching some useful youtube videos about cats falling into pots and people reacting to things.
So after about ten well spent hours doing that, the guilt bomb explodes skulls and death and I begin to feel like I should do something productive.
So I write stories because that is obviously the most productive thing I can do right now without actually doing the homework.
Then I think “wouldn’t it be great if I drew those characters?” So I draw them.
“Wouldn’t it be great if I coloured it in?” So I colour it in.
“Wouldn’t it be great if I did crossovers with them and other characters?” Then I do that.
“Wouldn’t it be great if I made up shipping names-” Okay you get the point.

By this point I’m drowning in a sea of characterness and storyboardness and rainbow happiness.

Does anyone else get this???

And the videos for today. I thought I wouldn’t do a music one this time, so as we are talking about procrastination, watch this guy:

And wow, serious post that doesn’t involve bad grammar. It must be the freakin’ apocalypse or something.

Byeeeeeeeeeeee and stuff 😀
