So much for that.

So much for me promising to not stop posting. I haven't posted in over a month and a half. In that time, the Olympics has come and gone and I have reached over 1000 views on YouTube which is MENTAL!

AND LEAKYCON HAPPENED! But I couldn't go, which was sad. But it is good becasue it now means that AVPSY is now in existence :)

I've also started a new Trimester at Uni. My favourite class by far is my elective where we get to study Hunger Games, Lion King, Avatar and some anime films. SO BRILLIANT!

I'm still vlogging, which is good. I haven't given up, even though some weeks, it's REALLY hard to come up with ideas.

Recently I was looking through a Brothers Grimm collection book and I found a story about a talking sausage. I thought it was interesting, so I made a video about it. It will be on the Melbourne Nerdfighters Collab Channel tomorrow, and I promise to link you to it. For now, here is a picture I drew/ coloured of the story :)


Until Next Time, Adios Amigos!

Nerdfighter Gathering

On Saturday the 23rd of Juune, I made my way into the city for my first ever Nerdfighter Gathering.

It was an amazing day and was full of hilarious events.

For those of you who don't know (yet), I have a vlogging channel and I made a vlog about it. SEE IT HERE!!!! NOW CLICK BELOW!!!

Migrations to Nowhere (My First Time)


I also uploaded additional footage onto the Melbourne Nerdfighters Channel, http://youtube.com/MelbNerdfighters/ which you all should subscribe to because it is awesome. Also, my video is there. And I'm an emergency, so you may see me on occasion :)



Until Next Time, Adios Amigos!

Update away!

So for those of you who don't know, I've started to vlog on YouTube. It's exciting isn't it? Yes! Well, unfortunately my editing still is a bit shoddy. I blame my computer being annoyingly slow when I'm trying to splice things. Also my laziness to fix things up would probably b an active factor.

If you want to watch some videos, please let me know what you think.

I'm on holidays now for the next two weeks, so I'm really excited, yet dreading it. I'm excited for being able to do all those things that I have put off for the term, but I'm hating having to do all the extra chores. And don't get me started on the driving I'm going to have to do. I hate driving.

In other news, I'm going to my first ever Nerdfighter Gathering this Saturday. It's a dress up thing. Yep that's right. We are going to be going into the city, all dressed up, and be nerds. It's going to be so much fun :)

Also, I think I have been friendzoned. But that's ok I guess. I mean, it's better to be in a friendship rather than a relationship because there is more of a chance that I would get hurt like I did with the last one. .... So that's all for relationship news...... Because you really care about that......

Until Next Time, Adios Amigos!

THE AVENGERS!!!!!!!!!!!

Warning: May or may not contain spoilers depending on what you call spoilers. It’s just my favourite quotes and villain mention, but no plot stuff.

The dynamics between Hulk and Iron Man are amazing. There were so many amazing one liners and the way that Hulk woke up Stark was hilarious.

And Loki was hot. Again. In Thor he was hot, and now he’s just even hotter because he’s more evil.

Having Cobie Smulders in it made me and my sister gasp when she first came on screen. And each time they said “suit up” I kept on thinking of Barney.

I originally didn’t like Robert Downey Jr. but he had such good lines in this. “Doth your mother know you weareth her drapes?” was one of the best lines of the whole thing and had me laughingfor about 5 minutes afterwards.

But honestly, even though there were so many heroes in the movie, but there was only one SUPER hero in this movie: Joss Whedon.

Other favourite quotes:
Hulk. Smash.
So that’s what it does. 

This is definitely the best movie of the year. 2010 was Inception, 2011 was Harry Potter 7pt2, and this year The Avengers.

It was actually pretty funny. The first thing I see when the credits come on is Joss Whedon. Then the second thing… and the third. Just shows how much involvement Joss had in the movie and it’s AWESOME!!! And that wasn’t all. It was called A JOSS WHEDON FILM!!!!!!!!!!!!! How EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Until Next Time, Adios Amigos!

P.S. Just found out there was an extra extra scene at the end. That is why I hate seeing movies with my parents. They never let me stay till the end.

P.P.S. They should now re-release Serenity  and say it's by the creator of The Avengers

A sad generation

I recently got Facebook and was randomly browsing through everything and I found a note by my friend Mary. She has kindly given me permission to paste it here, so thanks Mary :)

"Someone recently asked me, "Why don't you drink/want to go to afterparties?"
My short answer was, "Because it's stupid."
... and it is.

Upon more thought, I realised what a sad generation I have been born into. Somehow it's deemed normal and expected of teenage behaviour, for us to go out and drink until we either pass out in our own vomit or make a complete embarrassment of ourselves. And even stranger (and consequently sadder), this behaviour is deemed necessary for us to have 'fun'.

Tell me, HOW IS BECOMING INORDINATELY PISSED A 'FUN' ACTIVITY?! TELL ME!

I've had someone say, "It just is fun." Same person also wonders why she gets terrible grades.

Another has told me, "It's hard to stop drinking." Then well go complain to a therapist, or even a rehab clinic.

"But all my friends are doing it!" And here's the crux of the problem. What kind of friends let other friends do this to themselves? Break the law, damage their body and potentially create a life long problem? Great friendship right there.

"We're only teenagers for a few years, you've gotta break a few rules." NO! You are not invincible! You are an immature teenager who is deemed 'underage' by the government for a reason. I most of all despise this attitude. We are teenagers for a few years, so we should treasure them, not waste hours of our lives because we can't remember them from alcohol abuse. The concept that drinking and getting drunk is a mature way to party is ridiculous. At least adults know this.

Above all, I treasure myself. It sounds vain but that's the root of all my decisions, selfishly or not. In this case, related to 'fun underage alcohol abuse', I understand myself.

And I know that I am not complete in terms of who I am.

If you talk to adults, about ninety percent will tell you that they didn't know who they truly were 'til they hit 20-26 years old.

Because of this, I do not want to define my future self by submitting to peer pressure, fitting into the social norms, and destroying my own living and growing flesh from early on by drinking. I won't deny I've had a few testers, and there are some I do enjoy, but I have never even considered letting myself become overly wasted.

The minute someone my age tells me they were drunk at some party or are going to get drunk at some party, the words, 'disgusting', 'foul', 'low self-esteem', 'undisciplined' and 'idiot beyond comprehension', immediately attach themselves to said person. Even if the person is very close to me. (However, it doesn't mean that makes them any less of a friend, it just means that I pity them and I wish they had chosen better.) I have never glorified alcohol and have no need to define my youth by it.

Neither do I think that refusing to go to parties with alcohol has anything to do with being a Christian. I have heard of friends unable to remember five hours of a night, I know of people who have been poisoned by alcohol and as I mentioned before, I respect my own body and I'd very much prefer to take care of it myself. If I am unable to take care of my own person, then what a sad lump of useless and burdening flesh I am.

So to conclude my thoughts, I want to say that I feel a great sadness mixed with a great disgust at the way my generation is behaving, alcohol being the main offender here in Australia. I wish that people could just act responsibly and maybe use their brains for a little bit (it's not that hard people) and work out what's best for themselves. If what's best for you is to feel like a sheep and waste yourself away then fine, I will be elsewhere, working towards a future I know I will be happy with."
              ~ my friend Mary.

All of what she wrote fits in perfectly with my own views of the situation, although I have to add that whilst I hate getting drunk and everything, it is fun to not get drunk and have something on everyone else for the rest of their lives. Also, I'm not Christian like she is, I'm Agnostic, but I was brought up in a Christian household, so the point still stands.

Until Next Time, Adios Amigos!

P.S. It's Star Wars Day today :) May the Fourth/Force be with you!
