And nearly 2 years later i spontaneously remember my LJ password and am making a post.
i've grown up quite a bit since then, i think.
Started going to Church.
Also started becoming something of a slut.
Always one for contradiction.
i go to university.
i live on campus, 2000km away from home.
Last year in February i met a boy who was so handsome and smart and like that token prince charming, and though it didn't last long, he certainly helped to push me out into the big bad world.
i study linguistics. i want to go to Spain and get involved in research with dialect continuums, language restoration and sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics and fun stuff like that.
i want to get married.
i want babies.
i don't really want to get married.
It's just such a convenient thing to do.
But hey, it's all the rage at church.
And there is a boy there hitting on me.
And hitting on someone at church involves risking ending up married to them three years later, in all seriousness.
He's a sweetie, bit of a geek but cool. The way i like them.
Getting over my first boyfriend.
Life experience there, i'll tell you.
Best friend, love him to bits. Still feel like he made a bad choice. Still feel like he's going to take it back.
i doubt any of my LJ friends are still active.
Responses shall be so odd, i believe. Certainly am not expecting anything.

So, i had the best idea for a sort of little mini-series story to try and develop the personalities of the main characters in my big story-story.
And then i remembered how lazy i am and decided not to bother.
But maybe i will.
i think it will end up being pretty cool if i do it. Whatever. i'm pretty sure that my laziness will catch up with me before i even start. Haha, yeah, that and i'm already talking myself out of it.

i give up.
Kyle, you're cute, i really like you. But, you're a boy. And i'm not comfortable around boys, because they're boys and not girls, except for Joel, because he's Joel and not just a boy.
And i want to marry him.
Because we're like Seth and Summer, Romeo and Juliet, Sirius and Remus, Elizabeth and Mr Darcy..
We're just meant to be together.
And i'm sorry that i've been denying that for the past four years.
Really, i am.
Because i hate wasting time.
And now he's going away to university.
And he's going to meet someone, because he's lovely and charming and there's no way to avoid just loving him to pieces, and he's going to go off and live his life and forget all about me.
And i'm being melodramatic.
But he's Joel.
And i'm his Megan.
And i don't think we were ever meant to be just friends.
And i don't know why i didn't just admit this all earlier.
And i'm annoyed at myself for it now.
And i'm even more annoyed at myself for spending all my phone credit because i really want to call him and tell him to come out with me one night this week. So i can kiss him. Or maybe just hold his hand. Which i always do anyway, but perhaps it'll be different now.
Life is too colourful sometimes.
But i love colours, so it's ok.
And i love Joel.
And i'm going to marry him.
i think i said the same thing about Kyle. If i married him my children won't have blonde eyebrows,at least. No child deserves to grow up with that pain.
But i love Joel more.
Because he's Joel.

i just remembered that i got paid last night.

I, like, way forgot the most exciting detail of schoolies.
I got my lip PIERCED!
And it hurt more than anything else I've ever felt. Like, ever. But, I did it! And I feel so brave!
Ah, my poor neglected LJ.
Stuff has happened. Nothing particularly exciting.
- failed French
- earned my Responsible Service of Alcohol
- earned Cert III in something or other with alcohol
- started swimming again
- stopped swimming again
- started swimming again, again
- made some candles
- learned to iron. haha. hush, i'm special.
- wrote a killer bitchin' English assignment that was #1
out of 180
- still didn't get moved up from an A4 to an A5. effing authority board.
- learned guitar at schoolies
- got drunk every day for 6 days straight, at schoolies
- had my first ever real conversation with Wade, who is actually one of my besties. so, it's weird that we've never really had a one-on-one. we were both drunk, at schoolies.
- got whistled at from across the street, at schoolies.
- got sick, after schoolies
- lost a little too much weight since schoolies
And, OMG, my baby brother has a girlfriend! Squee! And, like, she's not an ugly derro. She's actually, like, way really pretty. i always thought that he'd end up with a scrag of a girlfriend because he's such a little dickwad. Apparently not. Teehee, i'm so excited! Too bad she went on holidays for 5 weeks the day after he asked her. He didn't even get to kiss her :(
Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING( The lyricsCollapse )

I really hate it when I want to update my LJ and I haven't got anything particularly fun to update it about.
'Awesome' is my word of the day, and I think today was one of the most awesome days ever. Can't exactly put my finger on a reason but it just was a purely awesome day. Catalan Boy is back from his vacation in Spain and FunCuteEnglishBoy is home as well. Now my spares aren't boring anymore. Hurrah. :)
Am special enough to be getting a new set of palette knives tomorrow. How super exciting is that? Like way super exciting. I'm only getting four - a tiny little one for like icing cupcakes and leveling tartlets; two normalish sized ones; and... my favourite... a kick-arse 26cm (well, I think that's how big it is) one with a round end - my kitchen uses ones with a flat end and rounded corners which are way weird - for slabs. I can't wait. I like knives...
