Guitars and Apologies

1. I’m sorry. For not posting recently. And for eating all the ice cream. I swear to God, if I get any more homework I am going to cry. I have about eight big pieces at a time and it is absolutely ridiculous and stupid and I hate life.

2. I promise that I have so many ideas for posts, I just haven’t had the time or energy to be able to do them. If you don’t believe me, here’s one page of my ideas.

These will get done... Eventually.

These will get done… Eventually.

3. This is going to be really short because all my literary ability has been drained.

4. I really need to stop eating so much crap.

5. I love my English teacher. She gave me books.

6. I’m sick of people not caring.

7. My hair’s purple again.

8. My eyeliner somehow manages to survive a full-on hair wash, but smudges after an hour at school.

9. I really want cake.

10. And band merch.

11. I’m going to cover one of my walls in band posters.

12. I hate people.

13. I don’t think my friends could get any more annoying.

14. I really want coffee.

15. Assemblies are shit.

16. I now have ‘wanking is fun’ on my rubber.

17. I’m going to Normandy (France) in June.

18. I have to find my former French teacher on Monday, the really bitchy one who I never want to see again, ever, because I have to see if she still has my coursework. I need it. I’m not doing it again.

19. David Cameron, I am not going to school from 9-5. No fucking way.

20. I want to kill everyone.

21. I like my fat media teacher. He let me listen to my iPod in class. I had to drown out the noise of the Oranges – the group of infuriatingly loud girls who embrace the whole fakery every single day: tan, lashes, extensions, nails, tons and tons of hot pink lipstick.

22. I’m really hungry right now.

23. It’s cold. Why is it cold?

24. Anyone else from England have the day off on October 1st for the strikes?

25. Rings are my new obsession.

26. I have an arrogant little twat sitting in front of me in French. He went to my primary and my high school so we’re well-acquainted however I hadn’t been in any of his lessons for three years so I’d forgotten how much of a dick he is. I’m better at French than he is, anyway.

27. He’s going to Normandy as well.

28. Apparently it’s wrong to write notes in capitals.

29. Bad Education and Waterloo Road are back. *cries tears of joy* Oh oh oh, and Some Girls is also coming back *cheers*

31. I have so many books to read.

just a few of them

32. Case studies suck.

33. I have to make up a rap for geography about life in the Kibera Slum. I can’t rap. Or write a rap. I can eat a wrap. Can I just bring in a wrap?

34. Black has been my official nail polish colour for the past couple of weeks. Mother is thinking I’m turning into a goth. Rebel.

35. Look at how utterly riveting our science experiments are at school.

Boiling water. How spectacular.

Boiling water. How spectacular.

36. If you want to contact me, you can drop me a message in the ‘SAY HELLO’ section, because I’m nice. :3

37. EIGHTEEN DAYS TIL PANIC!’s NEW ALBUM OMG

38. If Brendon crowd surfs at the show… I… I might be able to touch his hair holy shit please God

39. The chips my college do are really nice.

40. I really want a new guitar.

For now, my friends, I say good night.

The Perks of being Single

I have a question. Why does it seem so ‘important’ to be in a relationship now? Why does it seem to matter so much whether you have a partner? Why has society become so obsessed with the idea of relationships?

Is it really that important?

No. No it’s not.

There is absolutely no need to feel like you’re weird or ugly or unattractive because you don’t happen to be with anyone right now. No one should have to feel that way.

So today I’m going to tell you why you kick-ass single pringles out there should embrace the single life and enjoy it.

And here I present to you:

The perks of being single.

1. You can think someone’s hot without feeling guilty – I mean, seriously, guys.

2. You don’t need to care about the opinions of anyone else – Yes, we are always bombarded with the opinions of others. However, being single, you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. (To a certain extent of course.) Plus, you don’t have to worry about appearing interesting, if you want to watch Netflix all day in bed whilst eating about seventy bars of chocolate, approximately ten tubs of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and anything else you can find, YOU CAN! You don’t feel obliged to make an effort for anyone.

3. You can flirt with whoever you want – Some could argue that this is morally wrong but the way I see it, you’re single and you’re not tied to anyone. Flirt as much as your heart desires, my lovelies.

4. No one cares if you are flirting with someone else – In a relationship, if you’re caught flirting with another person… Man, shit is going down. Sometimes harmless comments can be mistaken as flirting and that often does not end well. So, no worries, go ahead and flirt with all five of those hot guys. Just make sure they’re single. XD

5. You can meet up with friends whenever you want – There’s none of the ‘oh-sorry-you-missed-that-thing-you-were-with-your-boyfriend/girlfriend-so-yeah-we-did-it-without-you’. It’ll give you much more time to meet up with them, plus you don’t have the complication of the clashing-dates situation; What happens if your significant other wants to take you on a date or hang out with you but your friends want to do something on the same day? Who do you put first?

6. You’re not constantly checking your phone every five minutes to see if they’ve replied just in case your phone just happened to miraculously switch onto ‘silent’… – And you don’t have the anxiety of ‘oh-my-god-he/she-usually-replies-like-straight-away-it’s-been-ten-minutes-oh-crap-what-have-I-done?!

7. Relationships are expensive. Save the money you would spend and then buy yourself that amazing thing you’ve always wanted.

8. Wearing the same outfit every day for a week – So you have a new favourite top and you want to wear it all the freaking time. But wait, you met up with your Sexual two days ago, wearing that top and you’re meeting up today and you REALLY WANT TO WEAR IT BUT YOU CAN’T. See, none of that!

9. You won’t run out of outfits – There’ll be none of the panic about wearing the same outfit on two different dates. Hahaha, just wear whatever the fuck you want.

10. Buying the perfect present – So it’s your Sexual’s birthday. What do you get them?! PRESSURE! That’s something you don’t have to worry about.

11. You only have one set of parents to worry about – When you’re single, you don’t have to worry about what someone else’s parents are going to think of you.

12. Awkward my-friend-hates-my-boyfriend situation – Yeah, that’s not great. If they really don’t get on, it really restricts what you can do together. Plus, you won’t be able to discuss outfits for your date night with them because they really will not care.

13. Awkward my-friend-is-jealous-of-my-boyfriend situation – This ties in with the previous point. If they’re jealous, well. Urgh. Just… Nooooooooooooooo. Man, it sucks.

14. You can focus on schoolwork – BORING, I know, but you can spend more time studying if you so wish.

15. Leave your room in a mess – You can leave things lying around wherever you so please.

16. You can watch the films you want without having someone yawning in the background – Especially with chick-flicks. If a girl wants to watch The Notebook, she can bloody well watch The Notebook without the interruption of someone else complaining that it’s too soppy.

17. Male friends – You can have loads of (hot) male/female friends without having to defend yourself and explain that nothing else is going on.

18. You don’t have to concentrate on what you look like all the time – Have I already mentioned this? You can sit in your PJs all day with messy hair and no make up and not have a care in the world.

19. You can eat garlic or onion without caring about what your breath smells like. – No need for mints when you’re not going to have someone else’s tongue in your mouth.

20. If you want to feel awkward ending a conversation – This is mainly in les early stages, but you don’t feel like you have to stay up until 5am talking to them if you really want to go to sleep.

21. No one is offended when you happen to be checking out the hot lifeguards at the beach – Like the first one. If you think he’s fit, he’s fit.

22. You can do Beyoncé’s Single Ladies dance and actually mean it.

23. If you want to dance like this, dance like this.

The 24 Most Underrated Parts Of Being Single

No one will judge you!

24. You won’t be ‘the annoying friend with a boyfriend’. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY.

25. New crushes – Aw aren’t they the best? It’s just so cute.

26. Guys tell you you’re pretty because you are…not because they have to.

27. You don’t have to pretend to care about sport if you don’t like it, and similarly, boys, if you really don’t care about fashion, who cares!

28.  You don’t have to care about anyone else who isn’t you.

And there we have it, a few reasons why the single life is freaking fantastic.

Adios.
