The only thing keeping me going is chocolate....

On last Friday, I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. Yep, sounds horrible. But that's that, and I don't know how I feel about it really. That's a bit of a whole post by itself, and I haven't taken the time to think it through....
It means that I'm allergic to gluten, and other complicated stuff that I don't understand. What I DO understand is that everything has gluten in it....And if I eat it I can get really feels strange to say it.........

So I'm surviving on Chocolate....

I started TAFE today, long day with two hours of school work tacked on the end as well. But I managed, and I feel like I've achieved something.

But I survived on Chocolate....(and a really good salad that my mum made me...:D)

And it's bedtime, and I'm going to sleep really well tonight.

I'm looking after an almost-one-year-old tomorrow, he's a cutie, and a busy little boy.

But I'll probably survive on chocolate....

My mind is full, I'm sure of it.

I did my TAFE orientation today. It was really good. For those that don't know I'm doing Music cert. II. It's looking pretty great right now.

This is hard to believe but I have Uni information booklets all over my bed. University of Canberra, University of Sydney, University of Woolongong, University of Newcastle....sheesh.

Overwhelming much?!

I'm only 15 (almost 16), but life goes so fast. (Acutally, they're my friend Ruby's and I need to give them back...) Plus, I can't even decide what particular subject I want to follow. Like, at the moment, I'm thinking a double degree of Music and Business....But in two years, I might want Art and Environmental Studies.....

Choices, choices.

Plus everytime I sit down to look through properly, I get sudden urges to read Byron, and play guitar....It takes much less focus. And shuts out the worry that I might choose the wrong thing...

SPOILER ALERT!!! - If you have not seen the movie Tangled, do not read this post!

I went and saw Tangled last night, hilarious movie! Of course some of the more tense moments were spoiled by a little baby crying....but hey, the guy just got was a little disturbing.

It follows the story of Rapunzel, but has a little twist. Rapunzel has magic hair...It has healing properties, and can make people young again.
So the witch wants her for her hair, and pretends to be her mother, and locks her up in a tower.
Cool right?
Being locked up in a tower for 18 years...not cool at all! I thought I had it bad...not at all compared to this chick.

All she wants when she gets out of this tower is to see these floating lanterns that are in the sky every year on her birthday. Anyway, of course her handsome man comes along, and he helps her escape from her tower. Not that he really has a choice. She does tie him up with her hair....

Anyway, the moment comes for the lanterns. They're in a little boat watching. While they're waiting Blondie turns around and says to Suave Boy, "I've waited for this moment my whole life, what if it's not all I hoped for and expected." (-please excuse any misquotes...I've only seen it once :P)
And Suave Boy says "It'll be better." (-or something like that.)

And it is...of course. It's a Disney Movie, predictable, and full of happy endings.

But I have to say, Blondie voices my thoughts for a lot of things in life. I feel like I am always looking forward to things in my life. Looking ahead. But I have a secret worry, What if it's not everything I expect and hope for???

Is it okay to be afraid?

Today, I woke up, and I've been redecorating my wall a bit, just moving stuff around. I'm putting up some photos, and I want it kind of to look like a film roll......


I wanted to put some quote, or clever thought of my own invention on the wall, with the photos, so I can remember that the little moments in life are important, or something like that. I hadn't really decided, and it's early, so the creative juices aren't really flowing yet. But I thought that maybe I'd look up the meaning of life in the dictionary. This is what I got.

life (lif), n., pl, lives, adj. -n. 1 quality or condition of living or being alive; the form of existence that people, animals, plants, and animate existence, characterized by growth, reproduction, metabolism, and response to stimuli. 2 time of being alive;existence as an individual.


Possibly I'm beginning to hate the guy that wrote my dictionary.....

A lady pulled out some school shirts at Best and Less. They were in those packets that are so hard to put the shirts back into. She brought them to me and said,"I'm not going to pretend i know how to put these in, you ladies know what you're doing!"

I didn't have the heart to tell her i had no clue....

Longest. day. ever...This stemmed from the longest. night. ever.

But it's cool, cause it was totally worth being awake, and staying up late for nights and nights in a row to be with some of my awesome far-away friends.

The Walkers: are amazing. Only they could pull off 20 or so extra people around their place. at the same time as putting on an amazing production of 'Fiddler on the Roof'. It was so great, and i had the worst crick in my neck from sitting so close to the stage. But it was so good being right next to the actors, that i totally went back for seconds :D. It was so neck-crickable-worthy!

And then we'd come home from the theartre and drink tea, and be snug underneath rugs, and talk and talk, until we got kicked out to get to bed. I'm pretty sure that i had baggy eyes, and was slightly unfocused in the mornings, but it was GREAT!

Milly's 18th was great. Music and Dancing are the best, and fires, and fire twirling. IT WAS AWESOME!

But anyway, I am so tired now. But i unpacked my bag. That's a plus.

and I'm in my own bed tonight. That's a plus.

And only 4 more days until christmas! That's definitely a plus!

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew! Finished yr 10 baby!!!!!!!!!
It's a pretty good feeling! But 2 years left of school....Trepidation is definitely a key feeling at the moment. But Elation as well....
Now if only i could decide what to do after....

Broken Hill tomorrow, can't wait to catch up again with old friends....(ok i saw them like 2 weeks ago, but i can't wait)....definitely not looking forward to the 800 kms though :P But that's what ipods and Harry Potter book 5 is for right? Don't tell mum i'm reading it again. :P

Did I mention that my favourite song at the moment is "Better Together" by Jack Johnson :) no? well it is!
