Adriana Demourtzidis

Ah, what can I say about my Adri Pie...
First of all, she forced me to write a blog about her or she threatened to slit my throat and make it look like a suicide. (She's very violent).

She's short, but I swear to God she's the strongest piece of shit that I've ever met. Once in P.E. she kicked a soccer ball quite petitely and it flew over the length of the entire large gym.

She is Greek, and loves the boys. Her favourite person in the world is Russel from music. They like to get it on in Music Room 6.

Nah, I'm just kidding. She is a cute, cuddly little person who is sweet - when you're on her good side... haha...
Trust me - I've been on her bad side before and it's far from fun. It's scary.

I love Adri, and I'm gonna miss our music lessons... :(
The Girls are splitting up. We've had fun times, watching Sean's solos, and freaking out before ours.

Adri, I love you and your bum.

Should I Go?

Well folks, I'm facing yet another difficult circumstance.
I don't know whether i should go to school in Week 8.

I don't want to go because Harry and other Year 11 people aren't going to be here.
Also Ms. Chetty is on my back about a Romeo + Juliet assignment which i haven't done and won't do.

There's also the option of not going at all, but I'm not sure how much the parents will agree. If I don't go, I'm letting down a couple of people who I know are relying on my attendance that week.

So confused. What do I do?

The iPhone

I don't get it. They don't make sense. They're stupid.
now don't get me wrong, I love iPods, and I mean, LOVE them.
But I hate iPhones. They're dumb.

Their are so many really good touch screen mobile phones that look nicer, don't break and have much more space.
So why buy an iPhone? To be cool?

You can buy so much better products, so if you buy an iPhone, go die.
They're uncool. You bought the wrong thing, the bad option. 
Oh well, I'm not stupid enough to fall for Apples shit products.

Until next time...

Mac Computers

I hate Apple Macs. I hate them. They are so shit and annoying. 
In fact, much to my disgust, I am on one right now. I am truly ashamed.

But - I had no choice, I really, really didn't. Otherwise I'd be on a Windows in a blink.
Fuck me, Macs are just too difficult. 

Oh, no! Internet Explorer isn't good enough for Macs, lets use a shit program like Safari.

What idiots! And the Mac version of Word is terrible. It looks like it's from 1998.
Ah, enough about Macs, they make me too pissy.


The Wizard Of Oz

Oh dear lord, I witnessed something yesterday... something very strange.
I went to observe the humiliation of the Year 9 drama performance yesterday and I'm afraid to say that it wasn't actually that bad... for a Year 9 performance, that is.

It had fantastic costumes and the set and lighting was quite good; better than I expected as the new 'techies' are really shit.
There were some moments that were absolutely hilarious. I wouldn't be able to tell you now, as I can't remember what they were, all I remember is that I laughed.
It was good.

But, the stand-out of the play by far was the lion. It was terrifying. He was wearing this lycra suit thing, which showed EVERYTHING! Or, the lack of.
I spent the entire second half of the play staring down there!!
I'm not perverted or anything but I seriously couldn't help it. They should've given that poor kid a sock. He'll never live that down.

Aha, it was funny... for Year 9's anyway...

AFI's Eighth Album

It's going to be fucking awesome! It's gonna be so good - hopefully...

I'm really curious about what they are going to come up with after December Underground, which is the most strange mix of hardcore I've ever heard.
Sing The Sorrow (their sixth album) was their best, and I hope they return to that era, because that was when they were at their peak.

I'm just really hoping that they get better and not worse, I don't want them to become one of those bands that gets worse and worse per album, coz that's what I hate in bands.

I have mixed emotions about this new album. Anxiety, nervousness, and hope.
What will come of this new album from A Fire Inside... who can tell?

Bitch Sessions

Ah, don't you love a good bitch session. It's like a nice strong coffee in the morning, it's very refreshing. 

You just sit there quite contently and bitch with a few people about who you're hating the most at the moment.

I actually don't mind bitch sessions, as long as they don't involve the person being bitched about finding out about all the bitching. Then it gets awkward.
But when its just a good old fashioned bitch session, it's oh so fun.

I love it, and you may say that I'm a bitch, that's ok, because we all do it, so therefore, no matter how much you deny it, you're a bitch too.

Two And A Half Men

Fuck me, I love that show.
It's so funny. But the weird thing is - I never laugh out loud when I watch it, which is unusual. I usually piss myself at the shows that I like.

Charlie is just too funny, I love how he's always digging at Alan like a total prick. It's hilarious.
But my absolutely favourite character is definately Roberta.
She. Is. Fucking. Hilarious.

I love her. She's like some sarcastic bitch who has a foul mouth that pops up every now and then. It's classic.

Love that show, just thought I'd say...

The Ticket 2

Well, bad news.
No ticket for Nanny. Oh well, if they don't let me in I'll eat my way through the fucking walls.

I bid you adieu...

Megan, Stacey, Me And The Ticket

At the moment Megan, Stacey and I are in crisis mode.
There is a Year 9 drama performance on today and to go to it means life or death.
I.E. escaping Maths and Health...
We are still searching very desperately.

To be continued...

Micheal Ambrose

You are a smelly loser.

Sweeney Todd

Ah, dear Sweeney Todd, how I love you. You complete me.
We are one, you and I... you know that, don't you?

Sweeney Todd has to be one of the most dear things to me. I love it!
(And I mean the Tim Burton version). It is fantabulous.

One thing that I absolutely love about Sweeney is sitting there with Harry and Kyrie, enjoying the wonderous melodies and harmonies, hearing about people being cut up and turn into meat pies... how lovely.

Sweeney... I'll heart you forever.

Young Teachers VS Old Teachers

What's you take? Who do you like more?
Well, lets think about this.
What is good about younger teachers... Hmm...

They are generally more fun and energetic.
They're more easy going than the oldies.
They're nicer.

What's good about the older teachers, you say?

They are more knowledgeable.
They get you working hard.
They're stricter.

Now, if you're anything like me you'd like the younger ones, right?
I mean, if I wanted to be a teacher, which I don't, then I'd want to be a fun one that all the students liked.
Not some old bag that everyone hates.
I don't know why I'm going on about this, I suppose that I just don't like teachers that are boring, spiteful, and have no life left in them for teaching. It frustrates me.

Generally he younger teachers are better and easier to get along with. I know that if you've been teaching for thirty years then eventually you get sick of it, but come on, have a little fun sometimes!

Job Searching

I'm looking for a job. Yep, I'm doing it.
I've always wanted to work, and now finally I am allowed to do so.

My mother has always told me that she wouldn't let me work until my grades improved and I started learning some responsibility first. But now hat I'm going to Queensland, a part-time job is essential.
So, this thursday, we're going to Colonnades to look for employment. I can't wait to start. Seriously. I'm so keen for money right now it's ridiculous.

But Glenys (mum) is really getting up my goat because she's been saying for the past three years that I can't have a job. That always fucked me off.
Now that I can have one, she's really hassling me about getting one and whenever I put my hand out for money she just tells me to go and get a job.
It's bullshit. I can't find a good job in a week, Glenys! Are you deluded?!

But anyway, I'm excited to start working and I thought I should let you know that.
Utnil next time...

New Shoes

I love Converse All-Stars! I love them!
I have been wearing them my whole life, or at least my whole high school life. 
But I've always had a problem with these shoes. They are for skinny feet, and my feet are rather wide. I always fit into them at first but eventually my feet bust out of them. It happens to every single pair I buy.

Of course my mother buys them for me, I mean, why should I get them? I don't have the money. But of late she keeps telling me that she refuses to buy Connies anymore because they are not suited to my foot.
Now, I agree with the latter; these shoes aren't really for me.
But I love them!! And everyone knows that I wear these shoes so they'll be weirded out when I'm not wearing them.

So today I'm wearing Volleys, the alternative pair that mum's had tucked away in case I "ever change my mind".
They are white, and disgusting. I hate them. Everybody is asking "why are you wearing those, where did your Connies go?"
It's killing me.

So my mother better agree to get new Connies soon because I'm not coping with not wearing them.
My sanity is already wearing thin. Good God, I'm crazy... 

Free Lessons

Oh, my, how I hate frees. They suck so bad, they couldn't be more boring.
In fact, I'm sitting in music during a free right now, and I'm so intensely bored I'm blogging about it.
Now that's sad.

At least I'm not like some freaks who have like a million of them.
I only have two free lessons. Tourism and Drama. And 90% of the time I wag Health and Maths, also I don't count Music as a lesson, as it's too good for that.
This means I only go to ten lessons a week.
English and Australian Studies. Oh, how they kill me with boredom. 
I hate those two lessons.

I must admit, however, that free lessons have zero stress and you're free to do what you like, also, you may go where you like.
So there is the obvious upside to frees. 

But then again, I'm in a free, and look what I'm doing...
They can't be that good then, can they?

Frances Jay Vincent

Oh my God, what can I say about this girl? She is amazing.
I've never known anyone as special or kind as her. Franny, you're my best friend, and I'm yours... (whether Nicole likes it or not)...

We've known each other since Year 7, and that's quite a long time. I suppose we weren't always best friends, and I find it sad that I've been friends with your mother longer than you. But also pretty funny at the same time.
I remember how when we first met we kind of had that group.
Me, You, Sarah Rowe and Tessa Warden. We were the Awesome Foursome!

I loved our little group and we'd always be giggling and having fun. I remember how at a couple of stages we liked each other, and when we'd bring up the guts to tell the other we'd always say that we would be better off friends. I'm glad we said that, or we might not be as close now...

And then we fought at the end of that year, and I never knew why... until recently (personal matter). I was so confused as to why you hated me, because we were such close best friends and then you ditched me.

But then you came over during the summer holidays and apologised to me, and that could have been one of the most important moments of our lives, because if you hadn't, we may never have become friends again.

So Year 8 came and we decided to kind of take our friendship slowly as we were still recovering over Year 7 quarrels. I remember how I'd come over to your house only once every second wednesday. How sad...

We were still best friends at that stage, and I always thought that we couldn't have gotten any closer than then! We got through that year being pretty close to each other as our friendship grew stronger. By the end of Year 8, I knew we had something good going for us.

Year 9 came, and we picked up the pace. I started coming over much more often making it around three visits per week, and we bonded more and more.
All the while making and creating more and more stupid 'in jokes'. There have been so many memories even up until that point.

We had a lot of close times that year, because that was when you really let me in to your life. I started to understand how hard your life has been and how difficult it still is for you. I swear to God, Franny, I don't respect anyone more in the whole universe than you. I can't figure out how somebody with such a fucked up family has turned out so perfect. You are amazing.

Year 10 arrived, and with it came the best times yet. We have had the best year yet and I can't believe how much closer we are now.
If I felt close to you in Year 9, its times by ten now. I have such a deep, spiritual understanding of who you are, I feel like I can predict every move you make; end every sentence you start.
I don't mean this in a creepy way, I'm just trying to amplify how much I feel I know you.

This year we've had so many good times and we've done so much together. I know you feel the same about me. I don't think it's even possible for me to be closer to you right now.

You are my best friend. I know you better than I know myself. I love you.
I couldn't live without you. Thank you for always being there for me.

Forever and ever, Nathan.

Romeo + Juliet

Now, you may all find this as quite a surprise, but I am quite the fan of Romeo + Juliet. I am in love with the play, because it is just too awesome!
It is such a good love story, even though each character eventually dies, which is why they call it a Shakespeare tragedy.

I don't know why I'm rambling on about R&J but I think it's really good, and I suggest to all who haven't read it/seen it to do so.
Bahz Luhrmann's version of R&J starrs Leonardo di Caprio (the hot guy off Titanic) and some chick as Juliet and it really is a superb movie. I loved it.

The play is still good, but if you find it hard to decrypt Shakespearean language then really - don't bother, it's just too hard. The first movie is kind of pathetic and amatuer, so, don't watch that either.

But anyway you go about it, R&J is an awesome love story that is timeless and I advise that you get to reading/seeing the story unfold. It's magical... haha...

Transition Day

Ah, transition day... A day where we can all laugh at our soon-to-be 'smelly year eights'...

They are so small in their multi-coloured, shitty little primary school unifrorms.
You can see them wandering around the school with wide eyes, wondering about what their future at APHS will be. These poor, inncoent souls.

Because all of us know very well that in 10 months time all these little shits will be feeling everday like this is the biggest hell-hole on earth. I know I do. 

I really do love transition day, for it is a chance for me to boast that I am a year ten and feel very nice about myself for once. 
Please God... let it be transition day everyday so I can be an arrogant prick...

Sacha And Her 'My Little Pony' Shirt

This shirt is grey. 
It has the word 'Princess' on it and it refers to the name of the pony.
The pony is quite pretty and it is pink. There is a rainbow of pink, yellow and grey behind it.

I would just like to say that Sacha has an amazing taste in fashion, and she truly can dress well.
There you go, Sacha! Happy now?

There's a blog about you.

Music People

If I could pick one aspect of my life when it comes to education that I've found worthwhile, the only thing would be aberfoyle park high school music.
It is amazing.

I've never met a bunch of nicer people. I get along with every single one of them and I love them all so much. They really are such nice people. They aren't the type to stab you in the back, bitch about you; in fact, they're like nothing in the whole world. They're just too special.

Originally I met this lovely person in my Year 11 Drama class and we hit off pretty much immediately, and from then on we just got along like a house on fire. We have so many things in common, and we're always making each other laugh. I am really grateful to have had the opportunity to meet Kyrie and enjoy her company because she is such an amazing, kind-hearted, warm person and I'll always love her.

This boy is crazy. He is cynical, strange, and very, very hilarious. His sarcasm and witty humour is something of a different world. He's just too cool for school. I've known Harry since Year 8 but it's only really been this semester that we've gotten to know each other. Harry is intelligent, funny, kind, and psycho. All the best components in one person. You're the best Harry.

Believe it or not I only met Megan 4 weeks ago. Since then I've grown so close to her. This shows we really are a match made in heaven. We have the best times and her snort is so funny and she always can make me giggle. Megan is crazy and she is really nice. There's nothing more I like about a person than for them to be able to be fun and crazy when appropriate and then serious and mature when the time comes. She is all that and more. Megan is a great listener and a fantastic friend that I can't wait to get to know even better!

We didn't always get along. We met in music last year but never really talked. When we did it was always through Adriana or Lauren. But since then we're really close and I love my D&M's with her. She is really insane and funny but she is so deep aswell. She's a sensitive person who I love to be around and she always makes me smile. She is a fantastic person.

This boy is very kind-hearted and rambles almost continuously. He never shuts up and always speaks his thoughts and never thinks before he talks - but this is what we all love about him! He's so honest and caring and funny and random and he is always there to have a cry to and he'll always listen. We love you, Sam. Don't forget that.

We have been friends for the longest. I have a good friendship with you and you are a nice person. I think that you have a heart of gold and I'm glad that we count on each other to be friends forever.

Mr. Sheridan:
You're the funniest, best, most chill-axed, awesone freaking teacher of all time! I LOVE YOU! I think that if you were a kid we'd be BF4L! You've brought so much inspiration and happiness. I really appreciate how much you care for me and how many times you've saved my ass. We've been through a lot Sheri, and I just wanted to say... you're cool.

So the above are my music kiddies, who bring happiness to me each and every day. i love them with all my heart. There are a few more I could have typed up but there are too many. I love all you guys. Peace...

Quality Degrading In Bands

Ok, so I don't know about you guys, but are you noticing that bands are getting worse and worse these days? It's ridiculous! I'm really sick of it.

I am a devoted listener of hardcore rock. I love music of all kinds, but especially bands like AFI, The Used and Muse. Lately (being the last four years) I've noticed that the quality of the music being put out by my favourite bands is getting worse.
My Chemical Romance used to be so amazing, their first and second album blowing all other bands out of the water. So you ask: Why did the their third album suck so much?

One words... Image. I'm sick of it - bands are constantly putting their image above their music, which is the most important thing. I think it's affecting all of the music industries, but mainly my genre.

Bands are also slowing down their once fast paced music and trading it for acoustic love songs. Now those kind of songs don't bother me, but they do when they come out of bands like The Hot Lies, which used to be amazing.
Their first and second EP's were mind-blowing. There debut album was bullshit. It was twelve tracks of pathetic serenading to some whore the lead singer was probably in love with. That album is a disgrace to the genre.

You may say that the bands are moving on, but honestly, you don't switch genres immediately between albums. It's too shocking and rejecting for the fans. But I guess some bands just don't care. Just like Panic! At The Disco, who were good (once upon a time). Their first album was full of raging pop/techno beats mixed with punk rock and racy lyrics. They were so good, and very respected for their out-of-the-ordinary alternative feel about them. But then came 2008, which brought along P!ATD's second album. I, along with everyone else, was expecting a nicely done follow-up to their first. Well... I received quite the surprise.
It was tacky, slow, and sounded remarkably like a band that was trying to be the modern-day Beatles. I hated it.

These are just a myriad of examples to show that music is getting worse because the actual music is becoming less and less important. How it sounds is nothing compared to how it looks nowadays. I've had enough of it.

So, in the end, I really do hpe that people will start realizing this and bands start trying to pick up the quality of their music and think less about money and image.
