Sun, Sweat and Steiners

Ill take you back to the moment..

and tell you everything i was seeing, hearing and feeling..

the atmosphere..

the people..

the music..


it was 9:20 on this Wednesday morning, and the sleepy town I live in (not gonna say the name just in case!!) was only just waking up. Sure there was the occasional car driving by, either going to work or coming back from school pickup, but overall there wasnt much action happening. Until you looked across the street.
A huge crowd of either green, blue, red or yellow dressed teenagers were casually strolling down the path, some with sleepy eyes but others already bright eyed and talking nonstop. Giant hats, zinc cream and oversized sunglasses in every colour were a norm throughout the seemingly endless crowd. But they all had one clear destination: the local pool.

EJ's feet were beginning to hurt slightly as she trudges along the footpath next to her best friend Jo. They barely had any breathing space, the footpath was so jam packed with students they could hear the conversations of people from both in front and behind them. But the girls stayed quiet until they reached the pool, as they were some of the still half asleep people.

as they file into the pool gates, the four areas for the houses are already ready. Four large banners are hung behind each area, boasting the house names: BADER, CHURCHILL, HILLARY, LANDY. EJ and Jo go and find a spot in the shade in the Bader area, both wearing green shirts, hats and zinc. For the first half hour of the day most people just stand around waiting for the events to start, and the atmosphere is kind of awkward.

But then BOOM. The DJ's begin to blast some tunes and all of sudden, somehow the atmosphere is suddenly a helluva lot more cool, comfortable and full of SWAG. Kids start to sit down and the first event starts. EJ and Jo get comfortable on their towels, getting ready for a day full of people watching. Because, FYI, both the girls hate sport of any kind and they much prefer people watching.

But before long, the sun started to seep through and the closeness of everybody all bunched up together resulted in lots of sweat. EJ + Jo handled it for a short period of time before heading off in search of some shade. Whilst gone, EJ went into the bathroom and applied some bright green zinc cream on her lips. This would get weird looks anywhere else, but as she walked out afterwards people didnt even have a second glance at her lips it was considered normal to go all out in your house colours.

As the girls settled back down onto their towels and (thank god) the shade sales above their heads began to work, they settled into people watching. The swimming sports should have another name THE PERVE DAY. Girls are walking around in skimpy little bikinis and guys are strutting around showing off their chests. But not that its a bad thing, EJ certainly didnt mind a few of the guys. Did somebody say eye candy? EJ's aviator sunglasses also made it easy to perve without people realising she was, which was a huge bonus.

But before you start to think what a creep EJ is... let me tell you this first. everybody was pretty much the same. Seriously, some of the guys eyes nearly popped out of their heads. But, sadly, there was a downside to all this perving that was happening between the teens. Some of the girls, who obviously had no dignity or just wanted to show off, were showing all too much clevage for their own good. Although EJ has pretty high self confidence, she wouldnt go strutting around in an itsy bitsy bikini in front of her school. Instead, she wore a pair of board shorts and a green singlet and felt happy in it.

So whilst EJ isnt a big sporting person of any sort, she enjoyed watching and taking numerous photos and video footage. Sadly, Jo refused to be in any selfies which made EJ sad, but instead she used that extra space on her IPod camera to take sneaky photos of some guys abs. Hehe super ninja coming through!!

Now, onto a cooler topic. THE MUSIC. The music was goddamn amazing! Whilst all of it wasnt to EJ's taste, it just added so much character to the day. It had a mixture of all the latest and greatest hits, a LOT of remixes and some Michael Jackson (one of the DJs is a massive MJ fan). But overall it was really good!

One of the many things EJ loves about her best friend Jo is that they both are professionals at people watching. The people watching was probably EJ's favourite part of the entire day. People are so....interesting to watch, watch how they interact. But when people had boring moments so peopel watching wasnt interesting, EJ + Jo spent their time counting the number of boxer brands they could see. So listen, all the guys were wearing boardies and ALL of them (well, 97% anyway) made sure the strip of their boxers that shows the brand was showing. Overall, BONDS was the most worn brand, whilst BEVERLY HILLS POLO CLUB only had one guy wearing them. Ive never heard of that brand either dont worry.

EJ + Jo were both signed up for events, but neither of them did any. The reason?? Well neither of us wanted to and we...have our ways.
#1: Our super ninja swag. If you cant see the people the people cant see you
#2: We had replacements.

Most of the day was spent sitting, people watching, eating, and having to stand up numerous times to stretch for sitting down on the ground all day is sore on your butt. But eventually the day was up. The score updates they gave us every so often always said Bader was a clear winner and that was ultimately the result. Bader came first flogging all the others, we are ultimate at swimming. So now, i have just finished writing this, back at school, still all decked out in my green gear, and am about to go to my karate class to finish off the day before Glee is on TV tonight. Better go!

catch ya later readers, sorry for the long post!!

all my love

Friday lunchtimes

Right now, it is 12:51pm on Thursday, 15th February.  I am sitting out the front of my schools library, on my laptop, waiting for it to open and watching my rapidly deterirating battery life and cursing because ive only got 53% left. Ive got an apple sitting on my lap, waiting to be eaten for my lunch. But of course I cant type AND eat, unless I have 3 arms. Which I dont. So my belly will just have to wait while I write this long awaited post for you people in the blogosphere. Reason why its long awaited? Well, simply coz I havent written a new post in what seems like forever, but in reality has only been about 2 weeks, which is a lot for me. I am usually a pretty good blogger, posting every few days or so. But lately ive been pretty slack, and a few reasons contribute to this.

One, because ive had numerous bans off the internet lately (dont ask)
Two, because i havent had the inspriation to blog. trust me, i have tried. i have about 3 drafts which were supposed to be this post.
Three, because.................umm, I dont have a third reason. :P

ok so right now I am at school. No shit its Friday lunchtime, Im telling myself. There is general chatter all around, but im blocking it out. It is just a quiet hum in the back of my head, I recognize the words but am not focusing on them enough to make it make any sense in my head. i just had a double of math, and it was like torture for my brain. the internet wasnt working well, which was frustrating. And the fact that I was half asleep in boredom didnt help make it any better.

but anyway, its lunchtime. ive only got two more classes left of the day before its the WEEKEND and FREEDOM awaits me!! My last two classes are Science and Music. Not the worst but definitely not the best. 

in other news, yesterday we got a little shower. I mean rain, btw. It was like heaven!! Even though it only lasted for about five minutes, ten at the most, it was beautiful. Its been like a drought around here for the past month or so, so just a few drops was like heaven. Simply amazing. And I didnt even have to do a rain dance for it! score!

woah. y'know, i was just in my blog little world, and i didnt even notice the bunch of people sitting around me have all left. oh. wow. i didnt even notice. thats what i love about things like blogging, reading and writing. They transport you to another world. Or perhaps just make you oblivious to the world happening around you. Right now, the world around me is absolute chaous. But just a typical school lunchtime, I suppose.

FYI, i dont sit alone every lunchtime either. no, i am not a loner or a social outcast. im not popular, but im accepted. but the reason im alone today is because all of my friends are on an excursion and im not in their class. so i have been alone all day pretty much, which i thought would be pretty depressing. but surprisingly, i have enjoyed myself quite a bit. just being alone, with my own thoughts, just doing my own thing. it has been pretty good. i know, i cant believe it either. alone time must be healthy. i mean, i never said it wasnt, but...you know what i mean.

rightio reader, i better go. im not spending my whole lunchtime doing a post, as much as id like to. that short burst of inspiration i had before is now gone, and i am longing to eat that apple. better go eat it now, i s'pose.

love and apples,

schools back and it was NOT how I expected

heheheheeeeeeeeeee I am feeling evil. Because my brother and I are cooking dinner right, and now the fish and chips are in the oven and the salad done and we both wanted to go on the internet but of course both of us couldnt use the computer at once. so Rory was like "lets flip a coin!" and I was all "no no no you'll rig it somehow!" and was totally against the idea coz I always seem to have bad luck when it comes to things like flipping a coin and rock, paper scissors. But eventually we did and guess what? I chose tails and it landed on tails so I was all "BAM! in your faceeee!"

hahahhh sorry bout that. anyway, about the title. so it is now the weekend after my first 2 days at school for 2013. I am now just one year off being in senior school so that is pretty exciting. I am kind of like, the senior of the juniors, if you know what I mean ;)
but anyway. so surprisingly my classes were alright. I actually had a pretty good 2 days back. but I am SO GLAD the weeks over because I am not used to school very much yet (I have just come out of holidays) so even though it was just for 2 days going back to school was a big shock for me. getting up earlier than 10 was a struggle!! 
favourite subject so far?? probably drama. it is a bit upfront, loud and confronting, not what I am like at all. Pretty much my polar opposites. But I actually enjoyed it. Maybe it was just the thrill of having a subject which doesnt include books, sitting for a whole hour and just solid work work WORK. it was also hilarious to see everybody doing ridiculous drama things. also there are a bunch of guys in my year level who started this year in that class, so its easy on the eyes. ;)
so all my subjects seem pretty good so far, theres only one or two which i hate. which is a new record for me, I think. the year 7s are like mini midgits, they are so tiny!! so short!! but thats nothing new, last years were as well. but for some reason, this year feels different. seems different. dont ask me why, but it does. but good different, mind you.

but enough about school!! it is the weekend, a saturday night, and i am just about to have tea. so im gonna wipe school from my mind until monday so i will catch you guys later!! 

all my love
