Okay, so I actually follow lot's of TV shows so I'll try and talk about them all.
F.R.I.E.N.D.S: This is a TV show that no longer airs but was absolutely amazing an d loved by millions. It is about 6 friends that live in New York and just like hilariously funny lives. The 6 main characters are Monica Geller(Courteny Cox), Phoebe Buffay(Lisa Kudrow), Rachel Greene (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer) and Joey Tribianni (Matt LeBlanc). It has 10 seasons. It is my all time favourite show, I watch it ALL the time, at breakfast, when I'm on the computer, at lunch, when my friends come over (lol at the pun) and also when I'm terribly sad it makes me feel so much better. I also love that all the characters have their own distinct personality and often most of the issues are just normal but turn funny.
CSI: Miami: This is my second favourite TV show and airs on CBS. It is a spinoff from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. It is a drama series about the procedure of being a crime scene investigator. The main characters are: Horatio Caine (David Caruso), Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter), Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez), Ryan Wolfe (Jonathan Togo), Frank Tripp (Rex Linn), Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander), Natalia Boa Vista (Eva LaRue). They're the main team although people have come and go such as Tim Speedle (Rory Cochrane), Yelina Salas (Sofia Milos), Jesse Cardoza (Eddie Cibrian), Walter Simmons (Omar Benson Miller) and many others. There have been 8 completed seasons and season 9 starts with a cliffhanger this Sunday in America. I just love this show so much, it always catches my attention and I love all the characters.
The minor shows in my head (hehe):
The Mentalist: This is also a crime show about Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and his team who all try to solve homicides in California, mainly near Sacramento. There have been 2 seasons.
Hellcats: A new drama series on CW in the USA and is fast tracked to Go! in Australia only a week behind. There have only been 4 episodes so far but this show is really interesting. It is about a new law student at college, Marti (Aly Michalka) that has her scholarship denied and so she joins the cheerleaders to earn a Cheerleading scholarship.
Glee: This new show has already taken the world by storm. A musical style drama showcases the Glee Club trying to reach nationals and also climb up the social ladder. Everyone in the Glee club is different and have individual characters, there is no main character that's good always but during the start of the first season, it was surrounded a bit around the character of Rachel Berry (Lea Michele). The second season has recently started.
House: I haven't watched much of this show recently but I have always loved House's wit. This show is about Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) and his team as they take on weird and wacky cases. There have been 6 seasons and season 7 has already started with a few episodes in already.
The Hills: A reality drama that surrounds around Lauren Conrad and her friends in Beverly Hills but she leaves halfway through season 5 and from then on it surrounds around ex Laguna Beach star, Kristen Cavallari. I'm not a big fan of Kristen so I'm not that into it anymore. I think season 6 is the last season.
Pretty Little Liars: A new drama series on ABC Family in America about 4 girls that lost their best friend but she seems to mysteriously return knowing all their secrets. There has only been 1 season so far.
I think that's it. Woah, that's alot, what can I say? I love TV (:

There have been many embarrassing moments in my life that were public, I can't remember the most or them all but I do remember having my dad embarrass me, accidentally keeping the blinds up when looking at my c-walking neighbour, LOLOL, talking too loud near people about stupid stuff, having to sing in front of all the girls from all campuses at year 7 camp, singing to this skateboarding kid and making him fall (I'm so sorry), and of course tripping over a couple of times everyday, im such a klutz. Lol. Oh yeah, and I remember something, that I significantly told olivia not to tell anyone, but I guess it's too late now, I walked into a wall. How stupid.

Now, I do not have a specific favourite outfit because I don't like wearing the same thing over and over again, and also I can't decide, so I will show you a picture of some of the clothes I wear and like, they are in my wardrobe. :)
Now I shall describe. Above the clothes which you can't see are all my bags, scarfs, hats and purses. Below my clothes which you also can't see are my big bags, teddies (you can see the top of my green mario mushroom), slippers, and drawing stuff which I don't use, just to clarify, I am not an artist, I just have that stuff.
And statistics/numbers of the clothes in my wardrobe? Well, I have 33 T-shirts, 39 singlets, 3 vests, 6 skirts, 17 dresses and 11 cardigans (excluding school uniform). I also have hoodies, shorts, pajamas, jumpers and etc in my drawers.
P.S. Sorry that I missed yesterday, but I've been quite busy doing nothing, and homework so some days I might do tons and some days I might skip, so I'm just warning you, there might be a lot of skipping from here on because I need to save my internet usage :(, and I have exams soon, but I will try my best. (:

74 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 30% Dork
take the test
For The Record:
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.
The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.
I have two budgies called Lachie and Jackie and I think they are some of the cutest things in the world. I love the softness of their feathers, the colour and their cute little beaks and tiny round eyes. I love how they chirp all day, and especially when they sing with me when I'm playing violin. I love them so much. <3

To all who I have ever betrayed in my entire life, I'm sorry. I swear, I didn't mean any serious harm. There may have been occasional times when I felt a bit bitchy but a lot of the times this year have been accidents and confusion in my head, caused with me trying to find myself.
To _________ & ________,
You probably don't realise but I feel like I'm losing both of you. One of you never reads my blogs, no matter how many times I remind you and the other one is probably clueless. One of you is growing up a lot and I feel like you've made a 'better' friend than me. The other one, is still close to me outside of school, but in school you always seem distracted by other people, not just your bf, and I feel like you don't have time for me anymore. It hurts me so much everytime I see you with them because I feel like you just forget about me. I know this sounds stupid and selfish, but it hurts and the realistic part of me feels like we're slowly drifting apart.
You really hurt me, I don't know if I can trust you anymore. We use to be such great friends but you're growing up so fast. I don't have any other words for you because I've run out.
I don't know what happened. Were you even my friend? We dont even acknowledge eachother anymore. Now I really should give up on thoughts about you, but I hate having things unresolved. I seriously are getting sick of this issue, you probably never cared about me in the first place and will never read this or anything I write. It's all too stupid.
We had an amazing time together for those many days faraway, but it feels like they're all behind us now. It's weird. And I don't know if you care or not, but I still remember everything you've ever told me, especially the nice things. No one has ever said them to me and it made all my days. I really miss those times and I don't think it will ever be the same again.
I still don't know what's going on in my mind, there are mixed emotions everywhere and I always change my mind. It's all a big dizzy thing but I'm having fun at the same time. I'm always confused and easily manipulated. I get confused easily 'not in that way lol' (most peops probably dont understand this) and that causes me do stupid things and make silly mistakes that I always regret in the end. But yeah, these are some of the deep feelings inside me, and words just can't explain them enough, but I gave it my best shot.

Day Ten: One confession.
1. I'm still afraid of the dark.
Even though I still try to convince myself that I’m not.
I don’t know why but I think pretending to not be afraid will make me not afraid, even though its not working, I still do it. I don’t know how I am still this way or why I am like this, but the dark just makes my imagination go wild, and not in a good way. I tell myself that there is nothing there and that I’m not afraid anymore because I want to believe that I’m not and I don’t want to seem weird in front of my friends, anymore than I already am. Will staying in the dark alone overcome this fear? Because it hasn’t helped me in the past. Is there something wrong with me?
I just want someone to help me through this, to stay with me in the dark.

Could love possibly be just infatuation? It always seems so excessive and impulsive, like something acting with thought.
I’ve always thought that even Romeo and Juliet may just be infatuation. And I know this is a long shot so please don’t get all upset but I always thought that they just rushed into things too much. It’s was all too quick and it felt like the head over heels type of thing. It didn’t seem rational.
I think real love is being in a loving relationship. You can never have too much, you always need a balance of everything, like in food nutrition. As quoted in All Time Low’s song Too Much:
“We were so smothered in love, we didn’t have a chance to come up for air. What a waste. Where did our time go? Where did our minds go? I don’t know. … Too much of anything is too much. Too much love can be too much. We had too much time, too much us and we fought like tomorrow was promised.”
As well as Shia LaBeouf:
“There’s a difference between being in love and being in a loving relationship. ‘In love’ is infatuation. ‘Love’ is when that love dies down and you’re just there.”
Often, the best relationships are the one’s between friends. There is never too much love, it’s never too intense, but there is love between two people that care a lot for each other. It may not be as passionate although they must be more than just friends for it to work, but often these are the most successful situations.
This is shown in Valentine’s Day, now I don’t remember the names but Ashton Kutcher’s character’s friend’s marriage works because the couple started out as friends. He does mention this in the film.
I also believe that even though tons of people my age (I’m 14 by the way) have boyfriends and say they’re in love and stuff but I don’t believe that that is fully possible at this age, I believe that most relationships at this age are based on infatuations and that’s why most end pretty quickly. But some that don’t end are maybe just long infatuations but I don’t believe that they are in proper relationships.
Proper relationships require one big thing that isn’t much of an issue to teenagers, and that’s commitment. Commitment is really important in ‘grown up’ relationships and people often breakup because of this but at our age, that’s not a big issue. For teens it’s just having a couple that like each other and that’s about it. Sometimes there might be a bit more but as my mum said:
“At this age, boyfriends are just like more than friends.”
I know there are people that just hook up and that’s also infatuation, all those people want is some fun with some guys you aren’t close too.
And I’m also not trying to say that couples always have to start out as friends, sometimes for some people that isn’t the best option, some people who are too close as friends may occasionally have something more, and try it out but sometimes it doesn’t work because they are just too close as friends. This has actually happen before to myself.
I’m sorry if this whole thing bored you, it was just an anecdote of my thoughts that make me question stuff. If you don’t like it then that’s not my problem, unfollow if you want, but this is me.
But I do have no intention in offending anyone and this post wasn't directed at anyone particular.
This whole post about love was totally random but I have always wondered about this. And I know TONS of people will have totally different opinions to me, and I would love to hear them.
