The future . . .

Last week the year 12s graduated so that means instead of being the 2nd oldest we are the oldest! This is a scary thought, it now means we are the big ones of the school the year every one looks up to, the year that has waaaaaay more responsibilitys, the list goes on. Its strange from the moment you enter high school you dream of being the 'big kids' but when your time comes you get cold feet. I know we should be exited and we are but we are also scared of what the future will hold. Next year we graduate we leave school, we leave what has become such a big part of our lives for the past 12 years, its when we enter the big world and make our own decisions. I admit I haven't thought much of the future I mean I have ideas of what I want to do in the future (who doesn't?) but I haven't mapped it out (yet . . .). To me I am still the girl who loves Glee, used to play Barbie dolls, has a display of littlest pet shop in her room (they are cute!), aces computing class, reads waaaaaaay to many books, loves pink and green and annoys her sisters. My identity has been largely based on the school I go to and who I hang out with at school. But what happens when I don't go to school? I'm not sure and too be honest I don't think I want to know!

For the next month we will have some wonderful people staying with us ok, more like on our front lawn in their motor home but you get the idea. Their names are D and C (first intials) though my dad has known D most of his childhood and has been keeping in touch with him, no one else has met him till march this year. Well I had, he came to my school to speak to my indonesian class (ok it so my class was my friend and I) but I didn't really know him or the fact that he knew my father so well! When we met him in march he mentioned that (apart from the fact he was getting married in may) that he and his wife C would be traveling around australia and speaking at a variety of schools so of course dad mentioned if they needed a place to stay we would be more than happy to put up with them. So that is why they are camping out the front of our house!

They arrived late saturday afternoon and hit it off with them immeadiatly. So we ended up chatting to them till late that night and finding out about all their adventures. C has a younger brother who has Downs Syndrome so Megan and her get along very well which is good considering how Megan can be :). So what will the coming month bring? I don't know but I do know it will be fun!

We decided on their names, as this morining dad told us we each got to name one.

Ugly Talk

A while ago I wrote a post called 'Ugly Days' writing about days when you just feel 'ugly'. But sometimes we just don't have 'ugly days' we have 'ugly talk' which is when you look in the mirror and say or think to your self ' I am fat', 'I am too tall', 'I am too short' or some times even 'I am ugly' and what ever else you can think of to insult yourself.
But here's a reality check; you would feel affended if someone told you these things so why is it right for you to call YOURSELF these things?! Sure we can think and say these things to ourselves but it doesn't mean its true!
I know many girls who wear make up on a daily basis all because its 'cool' but the truth is it's to cover up their 'faults' I know for a fact many boys find too much make up horrible sure a little lip gloss and eye shadow is fine but a thick layer of foundation? Thats over kill!
A while ago I was on facebook chat talking to one of my guy friends and he asked what I had been up too, so I told him I had bought a new make up kit, his response " why did you buy it? Girls look pretty without make up" this shocked me! But in a good way! Since that conversation I have only worn make up if I am going somewhere nice like a restaurant or a party even then its only enough enhance my features! I mean I always wear lipgloss as it makes me feel confident! The fact is one day you will feel beautiful with out make up and till then just wear enough to make you feel beautiful without covering up the real you!
So next time you give yourself a 'ugly talk' just remeber you are beautiful in and out! I enjoy listening to music when I write my blogs and recently I have been listening to What's Beautiful by Everlife its a great track and it says everything and more I have been trying to get across in this post :) Operation Beautiful

Happy Birthday

Today is my baby sisters, JC's 12th birthday. I can not belive how fast she has grown it seems like only yesterday she was brought home from hospital and I was so exited to see her when I came home from kindy (yep and now I only have one year till I graduate high school!). She has grown up to be the complete opposite of me in more ways than one: Her room is always clean- mine is manageble most of the time, she listens to Hannah Montanna and Miley Cyrus- where as I can't stand them! I listen to Glee- she can't stand them! she likes lollies I like chocolate, she loves her nintendo ds I love my ipod touch (though she did get a nano today so thats something!), You get the picture?! Complete opposites.

But I still love her!

Ugly Days

Every Teen girl has days when they feel ugly, days when they wish their body was completly different, days when long to live like *insert name of celebrity* and days when they think nothing looks good on them.
As a teen girl my self I know what it feels like, there have been days when I have wanted to lock myself up as I have felt so ugly. But then I have good days when I feel confident myself and even *gasp* beautiful! Its strange how compliments can affect you when I was 12 someone told me I looked 16 (!) and how grown up I looked this made my day! It also makes my day when people my own age tell me how pretty I look as I consider the way I dress different to kids my own age- but then I don't follow trends. But saying that I have also been called names such a 'grandma' because of the clothes I have been wearing (but I have been complimented on the exact same outfit!). I have many clothes in my wardrobe and sure I wear them all but there are a few things I wear when I feel 'ugly' that let me see myself beautiful! These include:
. My demin shirt dress- I LOVE it suits me perfectly and whenever I wear it people compliment me on it. This alone makes me feel beautiful.
.My year 10 formal dress- Maybe the fact that I tried on many dresses before I found it ads to the reasons why I like it so much but it suits me in more ways than one and the style means that it will always be in style ( and I will make sure I WILL beable to fit in it!).
.My ball gown- I love every thing about this dress also the fact that it makes me feel like a princess. I can't wait to wear it to my ball and the fact that me and Mum agreed on it and she loves it too makes me love it even more!
. I also have a variety of tops I love to wear and they suit me perfectly too!
But often when we have those 'ugly days' its hard to get out of them! But here are my tips (tried and tested!);
. Put on one of your favourite outfits and go out with friends even if its just to the movies!
. Paint your nails in a bright shade.
. Bake a cake and decorate it then share it with your family and friends.
. Go for a walk as well as getting your self out the house you get fit too.
. Listen to music listen to anything just makes sure its happy (feel free to dance and sing along too!).
. Eat chocolate.
. Call up one of your friends and have chat about anything, the weather, boys, your siblings anything just talk!!!
. Watch a funny movie or tv show (Glee is a good tv show as you can laugh AND sing AND dance along! (Try the lady gaga episode it is hilarious!))
. Write a letter too: your grandma, cousin, sister (it they live in the same house post it! They are guarnteed to love getting male from you!), best friend! It doesn't matter if they live 10 minutes or 10 hours away everyone loves getting mail!
Finally IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!! If anyone else thinks otherwise they are stupid :)

The PERFECT ball gown!

Last post I spoke about how I was looking for the 'perfect' ball gown, well today I found one! It was the right price, colour and style. Ok so it wasn't the colour I had imagined (royal blue) but it suited me!
The lady was very helpful and was able to give us advice and also tell us what styles were 'in' (yes I know my ball is next year but she was able to tell us ball gown styles only slightly change from year to year) and also how to wear my hair and what jewelery to wear (she had a daughter who had her ball recently so she knew about all the expenses).
I would love to show you what my gown looks like but I would like it to be a suprise. But I can tell you it is dark purple (it actually suits me!) and is strapless the rest will have to be up to your imagination!

Ball Gowns

Its hard to belive that next year I will be in my final year of high school! Next year will be filled with memories,responsibilty,friendships,making choices about my future oh and my year 12 ball! The Ball for every girl is the social event for their high school years I mean THE SOCIAL EVENT! Sure it may be next year but the fact is every girl (including me) in my year is thinking about it and people are already trying to organise limos (who cares?) ,dates (I'm undecided about THAT aspect!) and dresses. Which leads me to major problem at the moment most girls (ok quite a few) have already bought or ordered their dresses and well I am stuck I mean I have looked but I have had no luck with finding the 'perfect' gown.
I sometimes wish I was like cinderella and with a wave of my fairy godmother's wand would I would have the perfect gown , shoes, bag , jewlery, and while we're at it prince charming would be nice too!
I mean I have tried on a few gowns but the only thing that had suited me has been the colour (royal blue, my skin tones werid! I look good in orange ( I can actually pull it off!) and fantastic in blue!). The rest of the dress has been either too tight,too loose or just looks bad on my body shape! So tomorrow I am off to do a morning of dress shopping fingers crossed I find that I like and is the right price!
