So here's my dream from last night......
Subject:Big evil shopping centre where I work goes into anarchy

Someone had killed someone in the shopping centre, and dumped the body at this huge dump down the bottom that doesn't really exist. The killer was also hiding out there. There were tv cameras and because of this everyone was milling around, screaming and cheering. The showed a shot of the body, curled up in the bottom of a rubbish bin. This girl I know was there and she ran away from the cameras. Then I was inside and they said a prayer over the speakers and I joined in. Then we held a dance in Jeans West like in that scene out of 'Emma' .....

I saw Bowling for Columbine today. It is an excellent documentary. The thing that struck me was the comparisons between America and Canada, which has 60 something gun-deaths per year as opposed to America's 11 000 and something. The main factor that Michael Moore pin-pointed was the amount of media generated fear in America, as oppossed to Canada, where in the city of Ontario, people don't lock their doors. This worried me greatly considering the change we have seen in media reporting in Australia over the last month (eg CNN style rolling news at the bottom of the screen). Other differences between America and Canada included Canada's welfare system, and free health care (while recently in Ausralia we have said goodbye to bulk-billing). As our country becomes more and more like America, in political policy and culture, surely this will mean we inherit more and more of their social problems.

I saw the Archibald Prize exibition today too. I'm not much of an art buff but I enjoyed it all the same. What really interested me though was the photography exibition. I think I should do a photography course or something.

9:56 pm - Bad Mood.......
My ex boyfriend has turned into the biggest prick.... asshole... His mum is so sweet, I feel really sorry for her. And I am also sick of all those really self righteous people, you know the ones. Hmmm, saw Annique though today, that was good. She has a South African boyfriend. Anyone who knows me will understand that I am monumentally jealous.

Oh God. I'm dying here. This is so fucking unfair. I was born exactly a year too late. Oh God, I'm about to cry. On the 9th of May, my 17th birthday, the LUCKSMITHS are playing at the Annandale with MID-STATE ORANGE. WITHOUT ME!!!!! Beacause I will be exactly a year too young..... Why is life so cruel? Hmmmmm, do you think I'll get carded?

Stay in school kids

I'm going to Hell because I like Harry Potter!
You like Harry Potter, you scum. It's the deepest
pit in Hell for you.

Your very
existence is a crime against Nature.

Okay, so what has happened since my last post.....

Saw in the new year with a lovely bunch of people and freaked out over the fact that in a year I will be out of school thank god.
Got my shifts cut by my incompetent bastard of a boss, so I'm trying to find a new job, preferably not in retail.
Went down to Wollongong to visit Cassie for a few days...very very nice. I'm thinking of maybe going to uni there 'cause I've always loved that place.
Read all four Harry Potter books... if you haven't read them, then please do.
Ummm so that's about it really I suppose. Going back to school in a week. I want it to be over, but I'm not ready to start yet. I was talking to this girl from my school who did her HSC last year. She did nearly all the same subjects as me and got a uai of 94 so I'm feeling a little better now. Blah...I can so see myself turning into one of those boring people who talk about school all the time.

8:43 pm - Merry christmas to all who can manage it......
Did the usual today. Woke up, exchanged presents then went to my grandma's place. Painfully boring as always, except that this time there was the added novelty of meeting my cousins boyfriend. He's an amazingly nice guy, I'm so happy for my cousin, hope they are together forever..... Tomorrow my dads side of the family is coming over, should be okay.
I got stung by a bee a couple of weeks ago, and it went away in a couple of days, but last night it started to itch again. Now it's getting really painful..a bit weird really.
Don't know what to do about new years. Got about four people with me on the search for a party but no one seems to be having one.
Well...I finally found someone to teach me to play guitar. Met up with my friend from primary school the other day, and we decided that he'd teach me. So yeah, I can kinda play drive by Incubus.....it's all good
My best christmas present by far would have to be cd's from my sister- Private Transport by The Guild League and It's All About Love by Tim Oxley (thanks darling xoxoxo)
Okay, there's only one bit of bad news and that's to do with steve...yeah, things aren't going to well over in that camp...so this morning was kind of weird, you know, it being christmas and me wanting to cry......
Well enough of that unhappy crap, I'm off to call Anja cause I miss her and stuff

11:21 am - Beware of redbacks disguised as ants!!!
Well, I had a very disturbing dream the night before last, I think it must be going around. It was just before I woke up in the morning. Anyway, this is how it goes. There was an ant crawling around in my bed, a fairly big ant. I was okay with it, but then it started to eat a bug, and turned into a redback spider. I managed to jump off my bed before it bit me. Then I went outside and there was another one, and it did bite me....
Now I'm normally not one to analyse dreams, but I think they can work as a warning from your subconscience sometimes. Problem is I can think of so many people and situations that it could apply to. I think I have an idea which one it is though..... This dream really got me worked up. I couldn't stop thinking about it all day. I have a feeling that something is going to go terribly wrong.Damn dream, I was fine before that.

Apart from the dream though it's all good. I'm on holidays now. Worked yesterday and will work today also, which means that my plan to make lots of money is going well. I'm trying to save up for a car. Also tossing up as to whether to buy a new phone, probably shouldn't because the other ones only a couple of months old. Still if I want to sell it I suppose I should do it while it's still worth something.

Well, here's hoping that dream doesn't come true.

I only have three days of school left, then I am on holidays!!! I've never been quite so looking foward to it before, even though this term has gone so fast. I've been looking for song lyrics related to 'changing self' for english. That subject is such a load of wank. But anyway, I'm using it as an excuse to look up Lucksmiths lyrics. Yes, so I only have one more assessment left and I feel so much better.
I got stung by a bee yesterday. I was sitting in the park with Anja and it just flew down from a tree and stung me right on the collar bone. It was quite painful. Maybe it was punishment for the fact that I was meant to be in maths at the time.
Ha,ha....crickets going well. We're halfway there in the 17th over, and we've only lost one wicket.

2:31 pm - $50 Holly and a fruit mince tart
Well, I am getting over my tonsilitis. That hurt a bit, I can tell you. Weekend was good up until 5pm on Sunday. I'm not talking to my Dad anymore....how mature. Saturday was good. Hung out at Steve's house and watched the cricket. Sunday went to work...that was alright except for receiving death threats from Kristen, and Lee accidently telling Kylie about me and Steve. He took it back though and she still has no idea. When I got home I had to do this awful assessment for Society and Culture. That made my evening decidedly shit. For the first time in my life I am in love with a car. It is a brand new red Holden Monaro and I just really really want that car. I think I am turning into a boy. Oh, and I really really feel like getting trashed. I don't think that's a good thing.

current mood: confused

It is hot. To hot. Airconditioning is okay, but outside is hell. I have to get an MIR scan on my knee this arvo, because it doesn't work properly. I have to catch a bus and I don't know how to get there. I'm still sick. That makes it two weeks now. I went to the doctor and they tested me for glandular fever. I have had it before apparently, but not at the moment. The head spins have gone and I can think straight now, but my throut is monumentally sore. What is wrong with me. I am sick of feeling sick!This is the first Monday that I have come to school all day, or at all, for three weeks. shit that was the bell!!!

Sweet, sweet holidays. Pity I'm so tired then.... I have to say I love public holidays though, six and a half hours on double time...woohoo. I watched Ferris Bueller's day off today. Haha, I forgot how much I love that movie, I really should get myself a copy, along with empire records, he died with a felafel in his hand and amelie, except the latter two are only on dvd, and you know, I'm just not up with the technology. My buddy Nicole went back up to Ballina today, and Cassie's coming up from her new hometown Wollongong tomorrow..... god I'm gonna miss that girl, still she's not that far away really. Ah yes, excellent news- I'm finally going to get to see Major (Major!!!)play Live at Camdenville Oval in St Peters on Sunday with the shmick (mintox_super_g), Steve and maybe Liz. What more could you ask for on a Sunday afternoon.

Well, today was better than yesterday, when I had a run in with the evil side of my english teacher. I had a couple of weeks off school due to work placement and preliminary exams, and since I got back on Monday things have tended to be decidedly shithouse there. But enough about that place. Only a year left there and then I've got to make decisions and shit.....blah. Well seeing as this thing isn't turning out that cheery I think I'll just leave it for now,

Till a better time

current mood: blah

I'm sitting in journalism enjoying my last few weeks of freedom before I start doing HSC work.... I have an assessment for this subject that I haven't handed in, and I honestly can't be arsed because this is only a one unit subject and I'm not continuing with it next year. I almost gave my society and culture teacher the finger today, my fist was up, my finger was uncurling, and then I stopped. He knew what I was about to do and damn, I wish I had. On the other hand, we got a new text book that has the lyrics to Paul Kelly's 'How to Make Gravy'. That boosted my mood a little. I got burnt at work yesterday. We have this pain in the arse incompetent shit of a baker, and the little genius left this hot tin lying around, which I then proceeded to burn my leg on. I now have two 3cm burns on my lower leg. They don't hurt (now) but they will scar. Oh well. Can't wait for the holidays, only 2 weeks to go. I'm so bored in this place, I don't know how I'll stand another year. It is also entirely likely that I will screw next year up...help!!! My buddy Cassie is moving to Wollongong next Wednesday. I guess it's not that far away, and at least it's near the beach, for when I go to stay there. I was just given an illness/misadventure form to fill out for this subject....but what illness? What misadventure? Next year, I promise.....I promise.

current mood: apathetic

Well...spring is finally here. I've just finished my prelims(year 11 exams). I think I may have stuff them up a little, what with me only doing a total of zilch hours studying and all. Next year, however, I will do all my work, study for assesmants etc.... no please don't laugh, at least let me be delusional for a moment. Yeah, so I have today and tomorrow off...four day weekend, woo hoo!!! All this lovely spring weather is just making me crave a trip to the beach, or a day watching cricket. Unfortunately it is also making me want to go summer-clothes shopping, which makes me very poor indeed. My discman is officially broken, it will no longer spin around, which means that I, well, need a new one really. On the other hand, my Dad finally bought a cd burner the other day, so I guess I'll spend the weekend burning mp3s. I've just got to work out some playlists, which is not an unpleasant task at all really.....

Well, I haven't exactly been giving this thing my undevided attention lately, have I. But seeing as I have a society and culture essay to write I really will do anything in the name of procrastination. I'm still loving my new job, god knows why. Yes, anyway, I really must go attend to that stupid essay. Bye then...

Well,I've been playing the guitar all of 5 days now(-1 because I was too busy)and my woosy little fingers are gettin use to holding down the strings now. I also managed to see the shittiest band in the world in the past few days. They are called Irrelevent, and if anyone ever mentions them please run away with your fingers in your ears. It was an all ages gig. Bodyjar were the headline act, but we ran away halfway through their set. I felt like one of the oldest people there, and I'm only 16. One the other hand Blueline Medic also played and they are very good.I have a new job- how spiffy. I'm now no longer selling vile fast food. I'm free from that place. I've moved on and now I'm working in a bakery, selling nice, innocent breads and related goods. I got the job 'cause my sister works there, but hey, ain't that how you always get the best jobs? Okay now I'm gonna go and do stuff. Woops. I forgot to mention. Major (as in the fucking awesome one of my favourite bands Major) have a single from there upcoming album out. This is nearly as cool as it would be if George Harrison rose from the dead. Only the release of Major's album will be as cool as that. I can't find it in any of the suburban record stores around here, so I'll have to head into Red Eye Records. That's where the good music's at. They even have little descriptions of everything on there labels,(eg Lucksmiths - perfect).


Cheers to you all

P.S Klippspring say shaving lather is so creamy. They are most excellent and reminisent of pre-'Girl' Eskimo Joe, and 'take a numbers' is fantastically Beatles pop inspired.

I just did the silliest thing. I went outside for a moment, leaving the back door open with it deadlocked. The door blew shut and I was locked out. Luckily my bedroom window, which is directly above my bed, was open. It pretty small, one of the types that you have to push outways, but it was suprisingly easy to climb through.
cheers

All my assesments are finished for this term and in two days I will be on holidays. I am done with Othello, my friends. No longer shall my gaze grace its pages. Now it's 'The Great Gatsby' that is going to have my very much divided attention. My buddy Anja is over in Europe at the moment, so not only do I miss her, but also I really just want to jump on a plane and get me overseas. I've got to wait at least another year and a bit, and in truth it will probably be more.

My sister is officially the worlds biggest bogan (I love her though) the other day she went to say "I know, eh", couldn't be bothered and just said "'nay" instead. well, till next time.

Elisabeth
