My Freaky Dreams & Also Aspirations For Life

Hey Everyone!

So I'm interpreting this theme to be in two ways. 1. Dreams as in what we dream at night, also  2. dreams and aspirations for life. I have discussed issues such as the second, ie hopes for the future.

1. Dreams we dream at night.

Personally, I don't really remember my dreams that well, I get flashes and the next day I get more flashes of the dream and it like works itself together into a weird mess of what I dreamt the night before. On Tuesday night, I had REALLY weird dreams, maybe I should tell you about them?

Well, the first dream was about maths class. Yes, MATHS. I have my Mid Term holidays at the moment and my teachers gave us a mountain of homework (which I have more or less finished thankfully) however, in the dream, I was back in school and I hadn't finished my maths homework! Cue my anxiety kicking in, panicking, trying to be calm and sitting in a classroom as the teacher checks to see if everyone did the work.
Weirder still, suddenly, in the dream, the teacher decides to bring us to the cinema to see a film? I woke up very confused and guilty so I started doing my maths homework!

The next two dreams (one from the same night and one from last night) are related to YouTubers. On Monday night I had been watching a YouTube video of Jack and Finn Harries penny-boarding around London I think. The next night I had a dream I was penny-boarding (skateboarding) with them! This sounds really cool, but I don't have good coordination in my feet (I can play badminton and camogie but I can't go on a skateboard, weird but true) so I woke up at like 1 am muttering, ''I can't go on a skateboard, why, why did I have a dream, like what?'' True Story. (I have had weirder dreams, like murdering people and whatnot but these are the dreams I've most recently had!)

The final dream I'm telling you about is one from last night. I can't quite remember it clearly but here goes! I was in London (my favourite place in the world) and I like ran into AmazingPhil and Danisnotonfire (I had been up until past midnight on Tumblr reblogging gif's of them) and Dan was dressed as a Vampire (or actually was one) but I can recall being really happy and practically crying because I finally got to meet them! I woke up feeling happy, then really sad because I've never met them and they don't know I exist. (Fangirl Problems)

However, now onto dreams for my future! Yay.. the future (runs away from responsibilities) I'm seventeen now, which is really scaring me. I've less than two years left in secondary school, then I'll be going to college. I've been dreaming of finishing secondary school since I was a child, and going to college to become a primary school teacher. Teaching is my ultimate dream and to be honest, I have no idea what I would do if I didn't get accepted into primary teaching.

I do get incredibly terrified and anxious when I realise that practically everything I want in life at this moment, is decided by my Leaving Certificate results. In your LC, you can get up to 625 points (A's in all your subjects) and Primary Teaching is 465 points, which is A LOT. Along with certain grade requirements, I often wake up at night shaking with anxiety or before I go to sleep. It's scary when I think of it.

However more ambitions of mine relate to blogging and other websites. I love blogging and in less than a year, when I turn eighteen, I'll have the ability to get paid for blogging. In the Summer, YouTube also offered to make me a Partner-in-YouTube where you are paid depending on how many views you get on your videos, just like AmazingPhil, Danisnotonfire and so many other YouTubers. But due to school, I'm not going to accept it yet, maybe in the summer of 2014 I will. I really don't want to lose the opportunity but I also want to concentrate on my studies, besides, during regular school time, I have little or no time for myself to relax.

So that's about it from me! I hope you enjoyed that random post!
Stay Strong, Happy and Fearless,
Aveen xx

Dream with me?


Blurry but so clear,
Dark but light will be forever here.
Thoughts envelope me, swallow me up, send me off

 A pink flush, a lovely rush,
An eerie cry, that leaves me terrorised.
Thoughts envelope me, swallow me up, send me off

The smell of laughter will fill me up,
Swollen belly, full of hopes an aspirations.
Thoughts envelope me, swallow me up, send me off 

A sense of light,
Not a flashlighy, or a candle
But a sun so warm, so mighty
Yes, I can handle
Thoughts envelope me, swallow me up, send me off

The nerd in me, will be forever pleased,
Words swarm in, captivate me
Thoughts envelope me, swallow me up, send me off



***
 Cut not the wings of your dreams,
for they are the heartbeat and the freedom of your soul. 

~ Flavia ~

Tuesday : Dreams



It's 22:57 on Monday the Twenty-Eighth of the tenth month of the two thousand and thirteenth year. I'm on the notes app on my iPod thinking of what dreams to write about because the wifi is turned so I suppose one of my dreams is for the wifi to be left on at night ! Earlier I was in a right panic as I didn't know what the present week's topic was so I asked Aveen, She couldn't recall it either but she checked her emails and was able to let me know that this week's topic is dreams so s/o to Aveen hahah and I was just like "no doubt my post is going to be all deep yet again" ! Another dream then could be that I don't panic so much because I'm panicking right now like what am I even going to write ? And then midterm only lasts a week and Monday's already over this day next week I'm back in school ! I've so much homework to do and I need to finish my art prep sheet and library book for English too so I'm just here like that could all take me month why do I only have a week ? Everyone says Third Year or "Junior Cert Year" as it's nicknamed, Goes by so quick that it'll be April and it will feel like it was only just October. I'm forced to agree seeing as the first half of the first term has flown by and I still keep thinking it's still the end of September or the start of October, I mean like tomorrow is the twenty ninth of October - It's two months since we went back to school, It doesn't even feel like two weeks. I wish away the Minutes, Hours, Days, Weeks, Months and Years, There is no doubt about that. Even though I like my school timetable and then there's the weekend, I still want to get everything over with and everyday I'm just counting down the days to whatever and then when I look back I get all nostalgic (since I discovered its meaning several days ago, It is my new overused favourite word !) and I realise at the end of everyday that I wasted that day just waiting for the end of it and that feeling makes me feel even shittier and want to wish everything away even more, I can't help it, I just do ! No doubt if August to October went by this quick, It can't feel too long until Christmas then. But I panic when I think about this because there'll be Christmas exams in December, Then its Christmas and i get all depressed at the end of christmas day and then theres new year which scares me, Then when we go back to school I'll desperately need to begin studying for the junior cert seeing as the Mocks (basically a preview of the exams like a mock exam of the final exams !) take place in February before midterm and then it's my birthday in March and after that it's Easter holidays, Then there's the Art exam and my Irish oral and music practical and before I know where I am I'll be spending my last classes in third year and alot of the people I won't be in class with again because they'll either be skipping Transition Year or we won't be in the same classes in TY and I'll be sitting my Junior Cert (ten exams based on three years worth of work woohoo !) in June. 

As you can see I wish away everything and I can honestly say that I cannot remember alot of good things that have happened because in my head I rushed them. My dream is not to wish my life away and for the days to feel longer,

Dreams - Phoebs

Heyy! Its phoebs :) 
This weeks topic is the one I chose the theme for - Dreams! I really wanted to share my dream with you guys. I am gonna share my biggest dream with you - Performing on the West End.
So if you didnt know, the west end is like the UK 's version of broadway , top musicals are performed there. 
My dream started at primary school. I was always singing in the choirs and occasionally I got a solo . And then when I was in year 6 ( oldest year of primary school) I auditioned for the school musical - Guys and Dolls. We had to act, sing and dance for the audition. To my surpirise, I got the main part! I played Sarah Brown. 
Then rehearsals started and I LOVED every second of it. I was in my element. That was all good, but I think I really caught the musical theatre bug when we performed it. And especially afterwards . I felt I was flying. That was my best memory of that school. 
Now at senior school, I am in the musical theatre club. You have to audition and it is a lot serious but I like that. As I am quite young in the school I dont get main parts but thats cool coz I like being on stage anyways.  That sounds attention seeking, haha. 
Drama/musical theatre/ singing is like all my hobbies, its really all I do . I am so glad I have found something that I am so passionate about. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and if some of you share the same dream, comment! 
Check me out on my blog : www.geekchicnotes.blogspot.co.uk
I havent posted in a few days but this weekend I plan to be a super good blogger!

Amazing Alex: Religion (Homosexuality)

"Gay people are born and belong to every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths. They are doctors and teachers, farmers and bankers, soldiers and athletes. And whether we know it, or whether we acknowledge it, they are our family, our friends, and our neighbors. Being gay is not a western invention. It is a human reality." 
-Hillary Clinton

This week's topic is religion. I wasn't quite sure how to tackle this topic, but Pauline gave me the idea of homosexuality. I'm quite excited to write about this because I have a strong passion about it.

I don't want to dive "too deep" into the topic just because I don't want to offend anyone.

The Catholic Bible states that one man shall not lye next to another man, or so I've been told. Some friends are mine strictly state that you should not like the same gender. It's kind of like saying blond haired people can't like other blond haired people. Is that right?

I believe that the bible was written many, many years ago... and that there are some revisions that need to be made. I'm sure a lot of people agree with me.

A lot of people look down upon people who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual. I find this irrational because it can be seen as a form of bullying. I have heard the saying, "that's so gay!" throughout my school several times a day. I don't know why people say that because it's not a true statement. When someone does something wrong or when someone says something invalid that saying is the first to come out of some one's mouth.

I think people should rethink that statement before saying it.

I'm not really sure how to add to this topic... so I think I'll just close it once again by stating even though it may be against the bible, I still find it as a lifestyle to encourage. If someone just happens to like the same gender than we should support it.

Only 15 states out of 50 in the United States allow same sex marriage. Hopefully within the next few years that number will increase because everyone deserves equal rights.

One of my favorite talk show hosts is a lesbian, Ellen Degeneres, and I support and value her decisions 100%.


Thanks for reading! Xoxo,

Alex xx

Religion - phoebs

Hello Beauties!
This weeks topic is religion. I am excited to post about this but it is a tough post to do! Anyways lets dive in *makessplashingnoiseinmind*
I could do a really heavy post, but I have decided to keep it light and easy - ONE DIRECTION (or any boyband fo that matter) 

Many 1D fans consider themselves as DIRECTIONERS. As an outsider from the directioner community ( not a big fan, sorry!) being a directioner sounds like a religion. Lets take a look : 
To be a directioner, you need : 
1D posters covering your walls
Every 1D song on your ipod/phone/mp3/general music player
To know about the background of every member, or be willing to learn this
Like 1D on as many social media sites you have 
Attend as many concerts/signings as you can. 
Be emotional with one direction ; if zayn broke up with perrie , you cry .

This is the same for belibers (justin beiber), jls -sters (JLS) and so on . 
So is 1D a religion? 
if you look at different religious traditions, yes ,directioners should be considered a religion. 
After all,jesus had an impact on the people at the time he was alive, so have 1D. 1D might not have done things amazing for society, but I bet directioners think they have. 

To conclude ( this sounds like an essay , ha) your love for something, if you treat it like a lifestyle choice, it could be a religion. Maybe in 500years from now 1D might be the biggest religion in the world? I doubt it, but who knows?

I hope you enjoyed this post, be sure to check out my blog! www.geekchicnotes.blogspot.co.uk

Religion In Ireland ~ Aveen

Hey Everyone!

Another week has come and gone, and this week I'm here to talk to you all about religion. First of all though, I'd like to say a huge HELLO to Grace from Dainty Sprinkles who has joined the GOALLAP collab! If you didn't know, Grace and I are friends in real life so it's great that we both work on the same collaboration blog!

So, religion. In Ireland and presumably everywhere in the world, religion is a tetchy subject to discuss. Around 90% of people in Ireland are Catholic. This statistic includes me, I was baptised, made my Communion and my Confirmation when I was younger, not really realising what they were. (Communion and Confirmation is a huge time to get cards and gifts from family and friends)

However, like me, not many people attend mass often, mass attendance rates are below 30%, and there's quite a few reasons for this. Obviously the recession here in Ireland may discourage people from attending, time constraints and also the decades of clerical abuse in Ireland. I personally am not comfortable discussing the clerical abuse, but if your curious about what happened in Ireland in the Church, some schools and the Magdalene laundries, feel free to Google them, they'll give you more insight that I could.

However, my religion is slightly complex too. Due to being a teenager and having ''whacky'' ideas, I'm not quite sure what religion I am. On records and documents, I'm Catholic. However I rarely go to Mass. But it doesn't mean I don't believe in something ''up there''. I feel there is something, but I'm not quite sure what that something is. I personally like to believe that my Granny and Grandad are up there helping me and all my family through life. Some things in my life, which could have so easily have gone wrong, didn't. I've also had many near death experiences (Three this year on a pedestrian crossing ironically) but it's almost as if something/someone intervened and guided me to safety.

Call me crazy, but I like to believe that I have a Guardian Angel (My Granny in particular) who I look to for guidance and helps me when I'm in need. Another question I get is, do I pray? The answer? Yes, not often, but I do pray. Whenever I'm in Mass obviously, whenever a family member has a serious operation, myself and my Mam (if I'm around) go to the Church, light some candles and pray. Wooooo.

So that's about it for this week, religion was an interesting topic to discuss, especially in relation to Ireland and also myself. Hope you enjoyed reading my random musings, if you want to talk about anything or ask me any questions, feel free to do so in the comments!

Stay Strong, Happy and Fearless,
Aveen

R - e - l - i - g - i - o - n

This topic should surely be interesting :) The only thing isi don't know what to write..

Hi, I'm Ony, but that's not my actual name. Ony is simply a nickname

Well, that's great..I'm becoming like Katniss Everdeen. Let me go a little deeper than a introduction.

Hi, I'm Ony, but that's not my actual name. Ony is simply a nickname. I consider myself a Christian, because I believe whole-heartedly that Jesus Christ is my lord and savior. And that Jehovah God is my creator.

Hmm, I just Googled the word Religion into Google this is what it had to say ; the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods.

Hi, I'm Ony, but that's not my actual name. Ony is simply a nickname. I consider myself a Christian, because I believe whole-heartedly that Jesus Christ is my lord and savior. And that Jehovah God is my creator. I guess that makes me a religious person. My two bestfriends are religious, also. They were there to witness my baptism 05/05/13


I wouldnt say I'm an overly-religious person, however. People who are overly religious, judgemental, say 'Yes God' after every sentence or take part in the stomping of the head of the devil during a praise break evidentually freak me out.

I still make loads of mistakes however. Since my baptism I know for a fact that I've said more than 10 fingers worth of curse words, and did some sinful things. I'm not proud of that, I make mistakes however and I like to repent after i sin

My friends, however are always there to catch me when i do something ungodly, and that's grrreat! But sometimes they can be judgemental about it and throw it all in my face.

Gosh, I suck at metaphors. I most definitely suck at metaphors

Anywho, I believe in God, I know my religion, I'm young and make mistakes, but i will always find myself back to God. Where I feel confortable.

Tuesday : Spirituality.

Hi ! 

This is my first week blogging on GOALLAP - I'm still pronouncing it like JOALLAP cos g's can sound like j's y'know ! So many apostrophises and I've just realised I haven't even introduced myself yet oops. 

Well my name is Grace, I'm an Irish teenager in my Third Year of secondary school and my blog is daintysprinkles.blogspot.com where I prodomainently, Spelt wrong woohoo for autocarrot, Basically I've mainly blogged about fashion and makeup but bits and bobs of life as well since April 2012 and I first began blogging in September 2010 when I was eleven and a half and I anonymously blogged randomly about my life and ranted. I also make YouTube videos dun dun dun and I read all the JOALLAP posts of the week gone by every weekend and because I'm in junior cert year, I couldn't join in originally but said that I'd fill in for anyone who had to drop out which I am now doing ! I'm really looking forward to being the Tuesday blogger although I should really put my rambling to a halt now ! 

So this week's topic is Religion. I really don't have much to say on this topic as my belief is that religion is a personal thing and I don't like to judge anyone for what religion they are, Not being religious, Being really religious, etc. . I am a catholic and have been baptised and made my communion and was confirmed when I was younger but at the present time, I'm more spiritual than religious. 

I was never really into my religion although I always went to mass every weekend when I was in primary school. In the past few years, I don't really have much faith in religion anymore. This is getting deeeep sorry I had to say that, I'll try not to ramble on. I feel like I'm at a stage of my life where I don't believe and find it hard to believe but I feel like there's a chance I may be religious when I'm older. 

I don't believe in nothing at all and I've been in a place for quite some time now where I can't see myself praying to get this time because in my head I'm like "it's never got me anywhere before so it's hardly going to get me anywhere now". I see myself as more of a spiritual person and I believe that there's faith in every human on this planet regardless of whether its faith in a religion or not. Faith comes down to believing in something not necessary a religion but even just believing in yourself and  believing that you have the strength to get through tough times no matter how cheesy it sounds. Even through the darkest times in our lives we have to find light in the darkness. Even when you can't see it and trust me it can be difficult to see it, We have to imagine the light and remember that the sky doesn't remain dark forever and dawn has to appear at some stage. 

I'm sorry for rambling and being very deep considering this is my first blogpost on here ! I really hope you enjoyed reading it and I'll talk to you's next week,

Lemmie- Religion

Okay so  this is quite a controversial topic  but I'm going to just dive straight in!

I personally don't believe in any religion. I am an atheist, at the moment anyway. I am one hundred percent open to religion and I really couldn't care less what other people believe in (as long as they don't shove it down my throat).
I think the reason I don't have a religion is that  it just doesn't make sense to me, I like science and facts and  logical  thinking. I think that people can believe in what ever they like as long as they don't discriminate which is why I disagree with the view of some of my friends, who believe that homosexuality is wrong.
We have done a lot of work in school etc. about Christianity and Islam, and although I respect other people's views, it really does not make sense to me. How can I know which  religion is "right". There are roughly four thousand two hundred religions today and thousands and thousands in the past, how could any person ever know which one was correct. I always have the view that I only believe in one less religion than theists, we have both rejected four thousand one hundred and ninety nine Gods.

Perhaps my favourite thing about scientific beliefs  is the theory of infinite universes. The theory is that there are an infinite amount of universes with infinite possibilities, and because of that universes will be repeated but with slight changes. for  example some scientists believe that there is a universe where  my blog has one million followers and there is also one where I am best friends with Jenifer Lawrence. So, although this is only I theory I hope to God ( see what I did there) that it is true because I find it way more comforting that somewhere I have just won an Oscar, than any kind of religious belief.

Okay see you next week, Lemmie xxx

Amazing Alex: A Day In The Life

"Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile."
-Unknown

Hi everyone! It's Alex, once again. This week the theme has been a "Day In The Life." I'll be sharing with you what I did on Friday, a typical day for myself.

I woke up at 6:15 A.M, as always. The struggle gets worse and worse. It takes me quite some time to get ready since I like to straighten my hair and do my makeup. It takes me about approximately 20 minutes to do my hair and 10 minutes to do my makeup. By then I have about 15 minutes until I leave for the bus. During that time period I'm either getting dressed, eating, brushing my teeth, or something of a normal morning routine.

When I'm on my bus I usually just listen to music. I've actually been changing up some of the music I've been listening to. I'm sure you know that I am obsessed with taylor Swift; which I continue to be, although I've been into a lot more Christian Rock, Rock, and Screamo music. The song below my current crush showed me, "King For A Day" by Pierce The Veil. I wrote the song "Treacherous Tragedy" about this guy.


As for my school day, it went pretty well! I had a ton of tests including science and Spanish. They were so hard.

After school, there was a football game. Football games are a pretty big deal at my school. This was the first football game without being with my boyfriend and it was really different. Like, I was expecting to feel a lot of pain and heartbreak. Since our weekends are usually very busy and then I have soccer practice after school, we didn't usually get a chance to hangout besides school and these football games. it was kind of weird not being greeted with a kiss from a boy with beautiful soft lips.

Anyway, at the football game I hung out with some friends and socialized with a ton of people I didn't know. I mostly was a flirt, and I'm okay with that. The broken heart is slowly melting away. I got a few new phone numbers and they've been all really sweet guys!

When I got home I worked on some songs. That's how I like to conclude my day... letting my feelings evaporate...


Thanks for reading! Xoxo,

Alex

Day In The Life Of Aveen! Aka an Irish Leaving Cert Student (Nearly)

Hey Everyone!

So today (Thursday) I had to do a Day In The Life. Due to a surreal amount of work, I wasn't able to take any photos for you all! But I'll write it out anyway, here goes..

So my alarm rang shrilly at 6.20 am this morning, Thursday. I actually did not get out of bed until 7 am due to laziness, the cold weather outside and lack of motivation! It was just myself and my Mum at home this morning as my Dad left the house at 6 am to drive to Limerick to collect my brother from University (His University is hosting ''open days'' for Leaving Cert students to look around the campus) so he has no lectures and he also needed some DIY done to his house down there) So it was very calm when I was leaving the house at 8am.

However, something weird happened when I was being dropped at school at 8.20. Across from my school is a pedestrian crossing, and (I've spoken about this on my personal blog earlier this year) about how I keep getting nearly knocked down on the crossing (due to one person on one side of the road letting me cross the road, me walking on the crossing and the driver on the other side of the road not seeing me, I'M 5'8 ISH YOU'D THINK THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE ME.

Well this morning was quite cold and all the cars were fogged up, so we had to stay a couple of minutes to let the car defog. I was crossing one side of the crossing behind a girl (didn't know her, over 1500 people in my school) and I began to walk on the crossing. Then the car on the other side started to move.. where I was walking. Third time in 2013 this has happened to me. Why? Her car was too fogged up to see me. She stopped thankfully (I knew who she was, small town problems) and then waved me on. But her car was so foggy that I could barely see her hand moving.

So I continued in to school and with the rest of my lessons. (German, free class, so I studied. Agricultural Science or Ag Science. It's all about farming and it's actually really interesting. Double business, maths, double study and Irish) Thursday's are quite a good day for me, I love having two classes of study so I can start some homework.

I'd discuss more of my classes with you all, but I feel my teachers and peers wouldn't want me discussing items in detail which relate to school. I don't want to get into any trouble!

So that was about for my day, I then went home and started my homework, had dinner and finished my homework at around 9pm after some study and chatting to my friend Grace from Dainty Sprinkles on Facebook!

So that leads us onto now, 21.08 pm GMT/BST I'm laughing at the message I wrote on my whiteboard ''I fractured my motivation'' and my plans for now are, to finish and post this blog post, log off the internet ( a hard task indeed) get ready to go to bed and read a book and fall asleep. Repeat day with varying results beginning at 6.20 am (Sounds like shampoo instructions)

I'll see all you lovely people next week!
Stay Strong, Happy and Fearless,
Aveen xx

Day in the life of Phoebs!

 Hello beauties!
My friday begins at 6:45am . By 7 I will have had my breakfast ( usually a bagel or museli ) and be getting dressed into my uniform. I cannot show you it coz my school would FLIP! 
Once I am dressed I brush my teeth, do my hair , pack my bag, makeup ( concealer, clear mascara and babylips ) . I have til 7:20 to do this, but who am I kidding , I spend about 15 mins of that on my ipad hahah. 
My mum drops my brother at his bus stop then drops me at the train station. I get the 7:40 train with all my friends who live in my area, then we change and get 7:56 to the station near my school , with practically EVERYONE who takes the train from the 3 local schools. It then takes 10 mins to walk to school, so I am there at 8:15 . 
So between 8:15 and 8:25 I am packing my bag and chatting. Then we get registered and at 8:30 we are at a house meeting. These are 4 groups in the school, of all ages. At the moment we are preparing for the house fashion show. Each year creates a dress out of recycled material, there is a model for each year (duh) and dancers . This year I am on a school trip to germany on the last day so I miss it. Boo. 
Then 9:00 , lessons start! A single lesson is 35 mins and sometimes we have doubles. This is how my friday looks : 
History - at the moment we are learning about the slave trade. It is quite interesting. Normally history isnt my thing. 
French - we are revising le passe compose - past tense. 
Break - break is 20 mins . I go on my phone , chat and pack for lessons. 
Double Chemistry - we are doing limestone in chemistry. I think. I find it really hard at the moment. Last year we did topics I kind of got so this year seems a bit tough. 
Double English - I love this at the moment. We are doing persuasive writing and in pairs we are giving a speech on certain topics. Me and my friend are doing Gay Marriage. I am really enjoying discussing this issue. 
Lunch - lunch break starts at 12:50 but as my year we can only get in at 1:00. It is always fish and chips on friday. I like me some fish and chips ;) 
For the rest of break. I just mess about with my friends and be typical girls . Afternoon lessons start at 2:00
Business Studies - this year, we do a term of business studies, a term of phycology and a term of polotics. Business studies is ok, but I am looking forward to phycology :) 
Latin - i have a really good teacher so latin is good at the moment. 
R.s - r.s is enjoyable. It is like a discussion lesson, yet we get down all the notes we need so for revision. I like R.S ( Religious Studies, I forgot to say)
So school finishes at 3:45 . Today I am going to a party , but here is what I do most fridays. 

We walk back to the station and get the 4:15 train. Then change and get the 4:35 . I get home amd litterally CHILAX. I watch tv, blog ( though today I wont be on my blog, SORRY!) , facebook, eat and stuff like that. 
Then I have a shower and wash my hair. If its late i'll sleep with it platted , but if not I dry it. Then by 10:30 I am in bed. People say they stay up on friday and saturday nights, but I am too tired! I do on sat though. 

Hope you enjoyed my day in the life, check out my blog for more me : www.geekchicnotes.blogspot.co.uk  and email me to talk at : peacockpout123@gmail.com

A Day in the Life of Jamie

A day in the life of a year 11 student is no fun.
It begins at 7:30 am, because I like to be fashionably late to school. Though I normally lie in bed till the sound of my alarm has become the bane of my existence. I then take a shower, brush my hair, put on my school uniform and all that good stuff. 
Next is breakfast, which my mother dearest has already prepared, and packing for my favourite subjects: recess and lunch. This normally happens in a hurry as I hate being late to school because I will get a detention. 

8:25 - Time for school. Gross (unless I have free periods).

3:15 - Home time! I normally get a lift home, but sometimes I catch the bus. When I get home the first thing I do is change clothes and lie in bed and watch youtube or sometimes do my assignments. This goes on till dinner is ready. Dinner normally takes about an hour since we like to talk about random stuff at the table.

Then it's back to the laptop for more youtube till it's sleep time. I've been trying to go to sleep earlier as sleeping at 1 in the morning isn't very good for you. I think. 

Repeat.

A Day in the Life of Lemmie

Okay so this week's theme is "A Day in the Life" and  I'm not going to lie my life is not the most interesting but here goes!


I woke up around 7:20 and got ready into my gorgeous school uniform. As you can see it is wonderful.  I did my hair and make-up like I do for a normal school day (badly and very, very quickly) with help from my bestie, my hair spray. And by "do" my hair I mean try and tame my lion mane int0 something vaguely socially acceptable. It takes me maybe half an hour to get ready, but I am always running around the house in a mad panic.
I then power-walked to the  beautiful building- site that is my bus stop. My house is about a five minute walk from my bus stop but I still manage to be almost  late pretty much everyday. Here is  my bus stop,my house and my street. Wow, just look at how picturesque that scaffolding looks. 

When I got to school it was pretty much like every other day, except Monday is the one day I don't have PE! So unfortunately no running around it the rain for me. I had biology and we dissected a heart which was fun, but I'm not quite sure what animal it came from. 

 Here is my school! I took this on a much nicer day than today because the weather was awful. Our school is kind split up into loads of different buildings for different lessons, which involves a lot of walking around in the rain.

When I (finally) got home from school at about ten past four, I went to my friend's for a bit. You can see us chillaxing here. We just hung out and did some super fun homework.

So that was my extremely thrilling day, I hope you enjoyed it see you next Monday!

Amazing Alex: Colors & Emotions

"I think the words you stop yourself from saying are the ones that will haunt you the longest."
-Taylor Swift

J.o.a.l.l.a.p has officially met Week #6! Can you believe it? This weeks theme is colors. If you read my personal blog, you know that I have an obsession with Taylor Swift. Her latest album, "RED," taught me so many different things. I wanted to share my story.


I love writing songs. I think it's such an enchanting way to express my emotions. Over the past few years I've been writing songs about boys and their affects on me. I haven't spoken with this boy in 11 months and 22 days. The pain and intensity level of that heartbreak had to be put down in words and not just tears. 

I had so much emotion- heartbreak, anger, depression, rage, every emotion you could think of us was burning in my mind. All I could do was put my thoughts down onto a piece of paper- go into the heartbreak and recall the times when "sparks flew into the sky above" and then that part inside of me that kept saying that I was a "stupid girl" for going after him. (The worst part it I wasn't even dating him.)

The intensity level, once again, burns red. That color easily represents that emotion with flames, traffic lights and stop signs (which I completely ignored- stupidly.) I wrote the songs "Summer Fling Don't Mean A Thing," "I Looked At You," "Stupid Girl," Last Summer," and "What We Used To Be" about this relationship. There are hidden messages in these songs which will soon be known.


This song helped me see an emotion so painful- intensity and sadness. I see red, grey, black, and all of the leaves changing color in the mix of it all. There's so much conflict that it all breaks your heart so slowly. 

I've been staring at this guy in my homeroom and I keep finding myself writing down words about him. "You stare right through me, and suddenly I can't breathe. What we've come to know is a treacherous tragedy." Long story short, it was in seventh grade when something sparked. We found ourselves "dating" even though we barely spoke. We hugged and danced together, but I think I took the initiative to not really treat him like a real "boyfriend." He would always talk to my friends to see what I liked, what I wanted, and I saw him just as someone else. We lasted for about 5 months, now the pain will last a whole lifetime. 

All I do is write and write. I find myself 80% of the time writing about him since that's all I think about. I wrote the song "I Remember" about a year or two ago. It was just that I remember him doing this and him saying that.... and I would rewind back in time and fix everything.

This emotion is represented by just miserable colors- black, grey, and white. Then there's red- the intensity. I think that's how most relationships are- intense. Especially the breakup. It's been taking everything in me not to send him the lyrics to the song "Treacherous Tragedy" which I wrote about this one guy. If I could do that, I would take a load off my plate.

Although, at this point he probably thinks I hate him- which sucks. I wrote several songs about him including "I Remember," "I Never Stopped... Loving You," and "Treacherous Tragedy." I've written plenty more, but some of them aren't that good... or they're just really, really personal. I would love to post one of my more personal ones in the future.


Falling in love- such a beautiful essence. I see it as pink, and red, and purple. I also see gold for some odd reason. I'm currently in a relationship where I watched myself and him start to like each other- a lot, and I watched this relationship begin. 

3 months and 14 days was a really good part of my life. The best part about July 16, 2013 through September 30, 3013, the fallout, is saying that I got to share it with him. I've written the song "Coming Around" and "Something" about him. He was so honest and that's everything I wanted.

"You told me I was really pretty, my eyes lit up like New York City." I suppose that's why I see gold; when I see a relationship in the making. When someone has the affect on you, people shine, like the plasma in stars. It's beautiful.

As the fallout approached, I couldn't even do my homework in study hall. I had to write about it- the color red, and blue and grey just came crashing into me and knocking me out. In order to fight back I had to write off the sadness and intensity.

"Crashed & Burned" and "Promises & Lies" represented that really well. "It's like the sky is falling on me, making it harder to breathe" represented that sad and painful emotion that my heartbreak was putting me through. I wrote other ones throughout my free periods just to try to melt off the pain- it didn't work out too well. 

"I Love Loving You" was a song I also wrote for him. When holding his hand, I was in other place... my head was up in space, some people may say. 



Lately, I've been writing songs with "haunting emotions" I feel like those could be viewed as a deep red, bloody color, as well as a pitch black color. Some lines that I've been working on include-


"I'm tied up in swirls of misery, lost you and now I've lost me."

"Tripped into danger, all we've come to know is tears and razors."

"We hide our pain with scars, what happened to those nights when we shined like stars?"


If you're on Instagram and Tumblr, I'm sure you've discovered some of those pictures and words about people cutting and being really depressed. I've been watching a few stories about people who cut, or are anorexic on YouTube. They're so sad and depressing. 

It shatters me to pieces. 


Lately, I've been living in a world so black and white. This person has this affect on me that I can't seem to get by on. He changed my perspective- it's kind of like it's being "upgraded." I like my new "change." 

Back to the quote on the top of this post... If I don't tell this boy how I feel, I ay regret it and it will haunt me. 

Maybe everything will work out in the long run. The point of this post was to compare colors with emotions and refer to them with metaphors and similies. I hope you enjoyed this post.

Xoxo,

Alex

Eye Color Stereotypes

Have you ever seen one of those posts on Facebook or Tumblr where it says something like, "brown eyed people are the caring down to earth people blabity blahbity blah?" Maybe you've seen a t-shirt that says, "There's nothing like a blue eyed girl." Here's the thing, the merch is cute, dont get me wrong, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't swell with pride if one of those posts relate to my eye color, but lets be totally honest with ourselves here. None of that fluff is actually true.




If you've ever heard the saying, "Eyes are the windows to the soul," or believe it, then you'll get where I'm coming from. The thing is, no eye color can determine what kind of person you are. I don't care if you have the purest most beautiful crystal eyes. That doesn't make you a sweet little daffodil. For all we know you're probably a mass murderer. *Cough cough* Blue Eyed Butcher.(although I really did love that movie! Especially the ending! That chick was a boss!) And just because you have soft brown eyes, that doesn't mean you are totally caring and kind and down to earth, (Hitler anyone?) On the other hand...maybe you are all of these things. In the end, it has absolutely nothing to do with your eye color.

I personally think the only way I could ever decide what kind of person someone was before getting to know them and rather judging by their eyes is if they had like...no white in their eyes. I mean, I'm sorry but gee whiz I've seen enough Supernatural and Charmed episodes to know that that is NOT cool. 

Anyways, It's an intriguing thing to wonder about. On one hand, these stereotypes could be very true. I mean, that's how stereotypes are born right? If enough people display these traits then someone will get the wise idea to jump to this conclusion. Depending on who you are, it may apply to you, or maybe not at all. Still, on the other hand, they are quite fun to read. So read over these and tell me below which one you are and whether or not this applies to you. Maybe I'm wrong, how about we all see together if these are true or not.

Common eye color stereotypes..

Black Eyes

"Black.  Black is a mysterious color associated with night, secrecy, mysticism, intuition, and magic!  Black eyes may indicate a deeply intuitive, sensual, and secretive person who may have psychic tendencies."

-My baby brother has black eyes. Although he's not very secretive. He's quite loud and hyper. Ermagherd! he might have psychic abilities!!!! or not? -.-
Lol actually its odd because the tops of he and my other brothers eyes are actually blue. Just a random note lol

Green Eyes

"Green is a vibrant and fresh color associated with life-force, vegetation, rejuvenation, youthfulness, and health.  Green eyes can indicates a youthful, compassionate soul who has immense creativity."

Blue Eyes
"Blue.  Blue is an intense and energetic color associated with the sky, electricity, and rational thought.  Blue eyes may indicate a forceful, direct person who has an immense vitality and a gift for insight and observation."

Brown Eyes
"Brown is a strong and rich color associated with earth-energy, creativity, simplicity, strength, endurance, and fertility.  Brown eyes may indicate a strong and independent person who feels a deep connection to nature and the earth."

Gray Eyes

Gray.  Gray is a fluid and subtle color associated with water, weather, changeability, mysticism, and wisdom.  Gray eyes may indicate a subtle and sensitive person who is attuned to the unseen and whose keen insight puts them several steps ahead of the crowd. 

Hazel Eyes
Hazel.  Hazel is an exciting combination of the inner strength and independence from brown, the compassion and healing qualities from green, the fluidity and sensitivity from gray, and the intense vitality from blue.  A hazel eyed person possesses all of these qualities 

So what do you think? Do you agree with these? Do they fit you, or do you know soemone who doesn't match these at all?

Colours ~ Aveen

Hey Everyone!

Sorry for the delay in the blog post about colours from me this week! I was sick most of this week from the flu and missed some school, which is all well and good, except for when you feel so incredibly sick you just want to curl up in a corner and cry. As soon I went back to school I had a mountain of homework, especially essays which are extremely time consuming. Apologies if this is very short, I'm writing this then finishing my English essay about Sylvia Plath!

So colours. I know my font colour choices aren't exactly colourful, but what is so magical about colours? First of all, it is actually impossible to think of a new colour apparently! But colours possess emotions and the ability to calm a person and their soul. It's quite amazing really that something so apparently insignificant can affect the human brain in such a huge way.

If you didn't know, my room is turquoise. I'm not quite sure why I chose it, I guess I found the colour to be 'cool' and interesting. I was talking to one of my teachers in Transition Year last year and she spoke to our class about colours. Turquoise I discovered is a very calming colour and relaxes the mind, and is apparently an ideal colour to paint your room or a relaxing area.

There are four main psychological primary colours, red, blue green and yellow (or just the primary colours and green) They relate to the body, mind, emotions and essential balance.

The website here!! is excellent for describing colours and I'd really recommend reading it. It's quite fascinating reading about how all the different colours affect us and our bodies, spirits and balance.

Sorry this post was a tad short!
Stay Strong, Happy and Fearless

Color Favorites - Ony

 Hey, Everyone! Expect loads of pictures in this post, well 9 to be exact :) So for this week's theme on J.o.a.l.l.a.p I'm going to choose ten colors ; red, black,white, blue, green, purple, orange, grey, yellow, pink


Red!:

 For red, i have my two favorite red objects :) A picture/card/sticker i got on my birthday in Santa Monica, California when we saw the first photo booth there, and took four shots, happy,mad, shocked, and sad!
The second object is such a burgundy red that i was going to exclude it from the red category, but i absolutely love it too much to do such! I created this collage April 29th of this year using pant led leather jeans, old magazines and a hot glue gun! It was one of my first D.I.Y projects so i was estactic when it came out fantastical! (If you're interested in learning how to recreate this, tell me down in the comments and I'll definitely do a post for it on my main blog!)
°
°
°
°
Black!:

This one was pretty easy to pick! My bed, my entire frame, stairs and all is black :) I chose this bed frame probaly three years ago, because the only other option was woodsy brown and my 7 year old sister chose that one. And because at the time i thought blackwas just badbutt, and can you say mature? No, seriously can you say it because I've been literally doing alot of think and that word is just, ...
Also, my pen pouch! It's One Direction style, obviously...well obvious to me. You guys might not know but i just have to get this off my chest. I'm a directioner :p
°
°
°

White!:

Hmm, white... I had to do some digging and refrain from writing some lame but witty post about how i love my bedroom window blinds. Then i thought, hmm maybe my cute adorable white bracelet....i lost like two months ago (or longer ) Then i settled on my backpack! I bought this at wal-mart for 15$ I thought it was the cutest thing ever! Still do, it can carry literally anything! I know it looks small but it could fit my three year old siater, if i shoved her in, ya know. (Insert pict- lol no )
°
°
°
°
Blue!:

I love nail polish, i have a buch of colors (insert how many here) to be exact. I still believe however i don't have the neccesary colors, so for christmas and whenever i have money you know what'll be stocking up on. Anywho these pretty blue's are just well pretty.
The other thing in the blue category is the book I'm currently reading "Elsewhere" by (insert author name) is so phenomenal let me give you a brief summary. It's about a 15 year old girl who died from head trauma after being hit by a taxi cab while riding her bike now lives with her grandmother who died of breast cancer in an alternative universe, (realm?) Called elsewhere. Here you age backwards fron the day of your death until your seven days old where they send you back on earth with no real memories of your previous life!
*Mind blown!* I know go stop by your local library or order this via kindle whatever you got to do you need to read this book. I'm actually planning on bribing my library to letting me have this book, or maybe i just needtonot return it? (Stealing is no good, kids!!) :p

Green!:

This cute adorable owl beanie i saw a couple weeks ago at an open house of this art program forced me to buy it. Practically stole the ten bucks out of my jean ( I was wearing sweats :p) pocket and placed itself in my hands. It now sits around staring at me with it's beady eyes from my bedroom wall, due to the fact I haven't yet conjured to courage to where it out in public :/
The second one are these stock paper glasses i got from my cousin/friend's birthday party this summer. Isnt it cute? This too, resides on my bedroom wall :) You could say I'm great at decór
The third one, is the photo album my best friend got me for my birthday :)
°
°
°
°
 Purple!:

Purple is my two best friends favorite color they adore it. But i dont see purple as an I catcher...i don't know why. So for purple the case for my Kindle Fire, I'm currently using to type this roght now! I purchased this sometime earlier this year..
°
°
°
°
Orange!:
Finally my favorite color! It's funny how much i love this color but honestly dont really own anything orange. I used to have this orange and white striped shirt...doesnt fir anymore. 
Oh yea, R.I.P i had this beautiful dark orange plastic travel bottle for months but actually when i went to go see This Is Us, i forgot the bottle in my cousins car. I need to get it back....so no pictures for this one :(
°
°
°
°
Grey!:

Easy! My hrey bandanna I got when i went camping with my church in August this year. Grey was my team's color for the entire trip! So now it rest on my wall propped as a heart, like you see from the picture above!
Also, my vaseline container. It's actually and old Carmex co.tainer that i painted the top grey :)
°
°
°
°
Yellow!:

Yellow...Yellow...Yellow....hmm. Well, i have this multi-color picture/poster quote that hangs on my wall. It's a variety of colors, however. But to me Yellow does stand out the most!
°
