Things I love about summer.

Personally, I adore summer. It’s just got a ‘feel good’ vibe to it, if you get what I mean. AND IT’S WARM. (rarely in England but there we go, we’ve just had a so-called ‘heat wave’ so we should be thankful.) 😀 As with every season, summer has it bad features: the over-powering heat, the fact that we can never keep cool in the heat seeing as no one has air conditioning, so you are doomed to lie on your floor without moving for days on end… unless you spend your day in Tesco by the refrigerators. Not a bad idea, actually… There’s ice cream… …Yup… That’s my summer sorted. And then there’s the mosquitos. Argh. Annoying little things they are. Why do they even exist? *danisnotonfire voice* WHAT IS THE POINT OF THEIR EXISTAAANNNCCEEE?

But all that aside, it’s still one of my favourite seasons. And I’m going to write a list. Because lists are cool.

1. Sun – The really obvious one. But hey, it’s something that the majority of us look forward to, especially after long winters. Sun kind of just makes everything a bit better. Even if you’re stuck in school doing your most hated classes, it’s just a little better when the sun’s shining, right?

2. Warm weather – This is also really obvious and links in with the previous one. Still, it’s something we all like, come on. And we don’t get much of it here in England, so there.

3. Summer breaks and holidaaaayyys! And no school! – It’s just nice to be away for a while somewhere nice, even if, like me, you just go somewhere a few hours away (I’m trying my best to go abroad next year though… Portugal looks likely, yeeeessss) Plus it gives you a chance to stalk dem fit guys and girls.

…I am such a creeper.

4. Pimms – WHO DOES NOT LIKE PIMMS?! Probably a lot of people, stop making judgements. It’s one drink that is really summery and fruity and nice that only really appears in this season, so yep.

5. Ice cream – I know you can get this all year round, but you can’t beat ice cream when it’s actually hot.

6. Tanning – Yaaaaaaaaay, getting the ‘golden glow’. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA I don’t tan.

7. Meeting up with friends – Any day, any time really. Whenever you feel like it without having to worry about homework or school the next day or whatever. Though my friends are all on holiday right now, so I am a loner. Maaaa.

8. Staying outside for ages – It doesn’t get cold or dark for ageeeees, so you can stay out until midnight. not quite

9. BBQs – Nom nom nom nom nom nom nom. FOOD. Food is good. (Hint: To you UK people, the chilli beef kebabs from a supermarket that rhymes with… Lainsbury’s are really nice.)

10. Fruit – Finally all the nice fruit is available, by that I mean stuff like strawberries and raspberries and shit. Yes, I know you can get them all year round, but in summer you get British ones and local ones and they’re nice okay.

11. Lie ins – Because you’re not at school, you can stay in bed for the entire day, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Though I’m looking after my friend’s chickens and cat again while she’s away so this week I can’t do that. Meh. But I get paid so you know, the early (10 am) mornings are worth it.

12. Dresses and skirts and shorts and florals and all that nice shit – Yes. Summer fashion. I LUFF IT.

13. Lemonade – This just deserves a section of its own in my opinion, okay, because I like lemonade and yeah. When it’s nice and chilled and you can just sip it and stuff, like yup. Yep yep yeppedy yep. *skips down street with glass of lemonade* When I visited York last week, there were these people selling fresh lemonade, which consisted only of freshly squeezed lemons and cold water. And boy, it was good. If you ever go to York this summer, get some. Because it’s refreshing. Nom nom nom.

And so concludes my list. I want a list of things to do this summer, just really random things, so PLEASE COMMENT IDEAS BELOW I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVEEEERRR! Whatever crazy, or not-so-crazy ideas you have, please let me know, I’d really appreciate it, if you guys actually suggest stuff I’ll make a post about it and it’ll be fun and let’s all do challenges and stuff because it’s summer and we have six weeks off here (five now) so JUST DO IT. PLUZ.

Love you all.

AND YES I HAVE A NEW THEME AHAHA SUMMERY.

I really need to sort out these categories.

Feels.

FEEEEEELLLLLSSSSSSSSSSSSS. It’s like, summer holidays now, and high school is over for me and now it’s all the important shit and it sucks.

tumblr_leodnpk8vX1qdp3m1o1_500

(not that I’m a massive fan of Matt Smith because we all know David Tennant was better)

But now for neeeewwwssss de la ma vie. Whatever.

1. Prom – Yup, yup, yup, that happened. And it was just as crap as I expected but it was really fun, so it was a good end to high school 🙂 The music was terrible mostly (the inevitable chart music, hate it) but I chose to just sing and dance and act retarded all night anyway. My bestie managed to subtly make sure I got a picture with le sexy fucking stupid bastard of a garcon, so hahahahaha I’ll just have to burn it some day to get rid of the feels. Hmph.
Anyway, it was a good night, I mean what can you really expect from a high school prom with a bunch of 14 year olds? The last song played was ‘Let Her Go’ by Passenger, which, if you live in the UK, I’m pretty sure you would have heard by now. So that was the slow-dance one during which, about 90% of the girls cried hysterically and the boys did the whole ‘man-hug’ thing which just made them look like pricks. By the end of it, I almost felt bad for not crying… I just kind of walked out shouting, ‘GOODBYE, MOTHERFUCKERS’. Call me insensitive, but I really didn’t care about the majority of my year sooooo ha. But there were all the hugs and stuff in our group, one of which, avec, AGF2, lasted approximately the entire song, and consisted of AGF1 going ‘awwwww’ and my middle finger miraculously appearing in front of his face. Multi-tasking.
My English teacher felt it an appropriate time to give myself and my bestie a lecture on taking English Lit, not English Language at A-Level and university. Yep. It took half an hour.
EBBF (if you don’t know who she is by now, pay attention my dear friends because this has been said many times before: she is le sexy fucking stupid bastard of a garcon (LSFSBoaG) ‘s girlfriend. And my ex best friend. Who hates me. And is now going to have to spend 2 years with me, kicking her ass. More on that later.) turned up on rollerskates which everyone found totally ‘original, unique, cute, adorable, cool, badass, totally-EBBF-like’ *cough* If it had been anyone else, it would have been alright. But her? Ah nah. If that wasn’t enough, she turned up with LSFSBoaG in tow on his skateboard. Biiiiiiiiiiiiiitttttttccccchhhhh.
Enough on her, though if anyone has any imaginative plans to do with her death, please do share.

To you newbies, I’m not a murderer, okay, I just really really hate her

2. L’end of term stuff – people crying, teachers crying, people hating on the crying people…

3. Crappy holidays en Angleterre. – I was ‘on holiday’ last week. It wasn’t terrible, I mean, it could have been worse. It was boiling hot all week and I almost got a tan. (It’s a miracle in England, okay). I was in Whitby so I managed to see the abbey that is linked to all the Dracula stuff, and that was good. I’m currently reading Dracula so it was a good place to go. Bought numerous by ‘numerous’ I mean two dream catchers (they’re my new thing, I love them).

4. I’VE GOT TICKETS TO SEE PANIC! IN NOVEMBER LIKE OMG HYPERVENTALATING!!!! I can’t even…. BRENDON URIE IN THE SAME ROOM HOLY MOTHER OF SLOTHS GUYS THIS IS A MIRACLE AND OH MY GOD. And then 4 days later, I’m going to see Imagine freaking Dragons which is also going to be AMAZING. I’ll sneak you guys in through the air vents or something.

5. My hair is dip dyed purple. :O I’ll put a picture up when I can be bothered to make myself look slightly less like I’ve just finished a drug deal.

…NOT LITERALLY GUYS, I DON’T DO DRUGS.

6. I’M A LONER.

7. I have to clear out my entire room before Thursday because I’m finally having it redecorated. I don’t even know what colour I’m going to have it. Someone with inspirational paint ideas, please help me.

8. College – Okay, so we had our 3 day induction on the penultimate week of school, and it was alright I guess. I’m not with any of my absolute closest friends in anything, (unless I switch to goddamn fast track French which is looking like a possibility because my French class is crap (but there is a fit lad in there… XD) and so is my geography teacher so I can move to the better geography class yay) but I’m with 3 close friends in core subjects and I know a lot of the people in my classes so it’s okay I suppose. BUT.

tumblr_mpwfsbq5BM1spqfrso1_500

And unfortunately, a lot of them are in my classes.

One in particular… Let’s call him… Cu- *cough* Moron. Now, Moron is one of the most beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep, etc etc, this could go on for ages Anyway, I was SO happy to be rid of him after 3 years. But nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, I now have him in all my core lessons. But I am taking absolutely no shit from that boy this year, because he deserves to effing die in a pot of acid, each limb slowly burning one by one. Or he could be tortured like in one of Fall Out Boy’s videos (God knows which one it was, their videos are strange). Anyways, you get the jist. ARGH. Bastard.

And then there’s EBBF.

Seriously, why aren’t these gifs working click on them to experience the full dan-ripping-his-top-off experience
Who hates my guts.

Because her boyfriend happened to be talking to me.

It’d be nice to be spared the dirty looks every single time she sees me.

But the thing is, two of the close friends that I’m in lessons with are like besties with her. So she’ll always engage in conversation with them, whilst constantly giving me bitchy looks. Nice.

On induction, we had to play rounders and now she’s in my PE. So I was stood at third, right in front of her. You don’t know how tempting it was to hit her round the head with the bat.

I’m so nice.

But seriously, I haven’t even done anything to her, we haven’t even spoken since about three years ago. So, whatever. She can hate me if she wants because the girl’s going to get her ass kicked.

9. Um… not much else to say at the moment.

I still need to read all your blogs, I’m stupidly slow at doing it but I promise I will.

Cheers for staying with me and listening to my rant.

Oh and here’s Panic!’s new song, Miss Jackson for those of you who are interested. If you live in America, you’ll probably have heard it seeing as it’s like 12th in the charts or something, but here in the UK it’s not really been announced anywhere. So voila, enjoy.

c’est vendredi et c’est fantastique.

Bonsoir mes amis! It’s finally the end of my first week back at school, and it’s been okay. Firstly, I had my first face-to-face conversations with Isaac… and yes I did say conversations AHAHAHA he actually came back! And I talked to him for about 40 minutes… oh my god… perfect… So talking to him just kinda made my week… is that sad? As for lessons, they’ve been okay. I did a speaking and listening assessment in English today – we had to write an opening to a detective story and read it out. We had to follow an absolutely amazing piece (written by my best friend…) so that was great. It turned out quite well though. 🙂
So glad it’s Friday though, the week is finally over… there’s a satisfaction in knowing that the first week back is over.
On a not-so-positive note, that other awkward-guy-friend (not the one who asked me out, the other one) is hardly speaking to me. We used to be best friends, literally we’d tell each other a lot and we’d always talk to each other… now it’s not even smiles. I sit near him in ceramics class and next to him in maths and science which would have been great if this hadn’t happened. He talks to everyone but me. He’s his normal, warm self with everyone but me. I try to make conversation but he just gives cold, one word answers so I tend to just leave him to it. It’s sad though. I think I’ve lost one of my best friends… and that’s something I swore would never happen. It’s sad because I’ve realised if it takes a little thing like that to break us, it was never that strong in the first place. If it’s anything to do with Isaac, well he’ll just have to get over it because I can’t help the fact I really like Isaac. So sorry mate, you’ll just have to get over it.
I have to choose options for college this month… at the moment I’m probably going to take French, geography (or maybe history) and perhaps media. I haven’t decided on the third one yet, it’s a free choice really. If anyone reading this does media, would you recommend it? It links to the career I want to take, journalism, so it may be a good choice. I don’t know, any advice?

10 day challenge – Eight things that annoy you

Ok then.
1. People who play songs (out loud) for about 30 seconds and then skip them. I’m not talking about people who do this once or twice. I’m talking about people who do this all the time. Sorry. It’s just… just either listen to the whole song or skip it when it comes on… not right in the middle of it.
2. Perfect people. This is cliche, but come on. People who are perfect at everything… and I mean everything – subjects, skills, popularity, looks… Just argh. The most infuriating thing.
3. People who, when playing sport, only pass the ball to their friends. Enough said.
4. When something is being rubbed off the whiteboard at school and they miss a tiny bit of pen. I don’t know why, this just annoys me.
5. Open doors. I don’t know why, I just don’t like open doors.
6. I know this is probably mentioned a lot, but girls who pose, complete with duckface, for a profile picture and comment about how horrible they look in it. God.
7. People who, whenever we get test results back, ask everyone they can what they got, simply so they can tell everyone about their amazing grades.
8. People who sing the wrong lyrics to songs. Even if I don’t even like the song, I get really annoyed when people sing the wrong lyrics. JUST SEARCH THE LYRICS ON GOOGLE BITCHES.

Et voila. Bon nuit mes amis. see you later everyone xx
