Day 14- 36 sleeps ’till christmas

Now anyone who knows me would fully understand that i may be kinda obsessed with Christmas, but with the immensely shit year that we all have had I’ve kinda been distracted from what i feel is the best season of the year.

Having devout catholic parents Christmas was never really about Santa or festiveness. It was about the birth of Christ and how the incarnation of the lord should not be shadowed by commercial nonsense. I think that the religious message is important, hell singing Christmas hymns at the midnight mass is one of favourite things. However being the little rebel i was, i would sneak down stairs just to put 8 carrots and some mince pies for Santa and his reindeer like

but he never did. Just kidding honestly though i think i have an unhealthy relationship with Christmas. I mean i understand i’m clingy, but its just because i love it right…right. Someone help me. Seriously i get way to excited by the fact that Costa changes the colour of their cup, i can layer up and there are sales. Is it weird that wrapping Christmas presents gives me some sort of pleasure (Don’t even try and twist that). Our form just got our secret santa and we spent the whole of lunching sitting around a huge table making decorations for our formroom, stuffing our faces with food people brought in (i brought doritos) and listening to Wham, Buble and Mariah Carey. We were literally the only form in the whole school to do this voluntarily. Also if anyone is wondering what to get me for Christmas, please for the love of god just persuade Lin Manuel Miranda to perform Hamilton in London at least once and a new laptop. I mean it may be a bit awkward because the whole plot is about the revolution against the British, but people will be so mesmerized by the songs no-on will really care. I think. So i guess bye :).

quotes_anais-nin

This is probably one of my favourite quotes. My english teacher showed it to us for no apparent reason and i just loved it. It currently stuck on my bedroom wall alongside picture and me and friends making derpy faces so you know its important to me. It taught me that no matter how much you wants from life you have to have courage and have to work for them. I guess I like it so much because i’m a Gryffindor. So i guess bye :).

watching-all-youre-gonna-do-youre-gonna-watch-your

Hunchback of Notre Dame is probably one of my favourite animated films. Everyone can relate to Quasimodo at least once in their life, being the social pariah is not fun, but there is no point watching other people live their life locked up in a tower (or your bedroom). If you see a opportunity in life take and don’t give two shits what others think, because if thats all you care about you’re not really living your best life. So i guess bye :).

Day 10-THREE DAYS THREE QUOTES: DAY ONE

 

2b25d0541cb785b54167973dc58e1ac0I know this is a song lyric, but i guess it counts. I grew up with my dad blasting Pink Floyd everyday when he first moved to England. He loved them and because i heard it so often i grew to become sick of it. Except for Breathe, I always connected to that song because it was so different.  It always encouraged me to go out and try new things and not care what other though because it was my life not theirs. It also taught me to stop being so shy and actually do stuff without worrying about what others would think. I realise now that the song was about something completely different, but it always hold a special place in my heart.

Now because i love this challenge soo much and i don’t want to restrict to a few people (and i cant be asked to choose people) i nominate whoever the hell wants to do this. Have fun guys and so i guess bye :).

Day 9- Regarding the election

As many may know Donald trump has just won the US presidential election and i just want to let any American minorities to know that they shouldn’t be afraid. The whole world stands with you and will not tolerate any sort of discrimination from him or his shitty running mate (Vice president now). Now i’m not going to pretend I was some sort of political expert throughout the election, so i’m sorry if i seem ignorant to your politics. It was only couple of months ago when I was freaking about the referendum, so i only really started caring near the end of the election.

As much as I hate Donald Trump, I just don’t see the point of protesting already. Everyone has a right to protest and voice their opinion, but he hasn’t even done anything yet. For all we know he might have just been say all that shit throughout the election to get the racists and homophobes vote (lets hope).  I’m not saying you have to support him, but has Abraham Lincoln famously said “a house divided against itself cannot stand”. The most you can do is try and salvage what hope you have left and try to a get a message across to Trump. I understand the anger, I felt the same when Britain left the EU. I knew my future would be greatly affected, but there was no point calling for another referendum. I know a lot of people were uninformed in their choice, but that doesn’t mean all of them were. It was the peoples choice and i know its was a almost a fifty/fifty vote, but it was between 1 million people and well thats just democracy. Its not fair at all, but all we can do is try and make it work so that our whole country doesn’t collapse. I really didn’t mean to offend anyone, but this was just my personal opinion. However i’ll just leave you with this video:

My Questions

What is the one thing that you want to do in life, no matter what?  It may seem stupid, but i really want go go on a road trip with my friends and do that kicking the leaning tower of Pisa photo.

If you could fly, where would be the first place you go to?

I would go to the pub my grandad owned in his thirties. Although its been sold to someone else I really want to see it even if it is in Ireland (don’t ask).

Which Hogwarts house would you want to be, irrelevant of whether you have been sorted on Pottermore?

Well I’ve been sorted into Gryffindor ( i’m the Neville), but i’m pretty sure i’m a Hufflepuff. Their so mellow and are good finders, which is extremely true as i’m always finding stuff down the bottom of the sofa.

If you had the choice now, would you like a younger sister or brother?

Well i already have a younger brother and he’s annoying af, but i really want a younger sister so i could pass on my wisdom to her and then my dad would get even more pissed off with 3 daughters.

Would you rather have long hair or long finger nails (my nails grow really fast and my hair doesn’t which is really annoying)?

I recently chopped of my hair into a lob (long bob) and i miss my long hair so much. You can only do so much with short hair and I hate growing out my nails for some reason.

Square or circle?

Circles. Squares are boring ( no offense to you square people). Guess i’ll have to be there than risk being square..

How do you like your eggs (poached/fried/scrambled/boiled)?

Now if i was a fuckboi i would say fertilised, but i’m not so i guess i like the whites scrambled or half boiled with soldiers.

What your favourite feature of yourself?

Idk my lips i guess they’re the only thing on my face that looks half decent plus they kinda  look like Kylie Jenners post lip injections (not really) so yeah.

Which book turned film is your favourite?

I remember reading a second wind  when i was very young, eventhough it was  french i really loved it and a couple years ago i discovered there was a film inspired by it called the intouchables and honestly it is one of my favourite films ever. It still makes me cry like  little baby to this day.

Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings?

Harry Potter soz. I really like the hobbit book tho.

Would you rather be a millionaire and be unhappy or be poor but incredibly happy?

Well i depends how poor, but if i was a millionaire i could just enroll in a happiness course or buy a puppy cause anyone who has a puppy is never truly unhappy.
