Profile pictures that annoy me.

29 Apr

 

 
Good evening world! How’s It going? 😉
So today, on my very productive Sunday (I was supposed to be working, but got someone to cover my shift because I was too lazy to work hashtag-lazyass) I spent the majority of my time on my couch in my fluffy blanket and pjs snooping around social network sites, hashtag-stalker. so when on Facebook, and not just today, on pretty much every encounter I have with the outside world via the Internet, I notice a trend with people’s profile photos. Now, this is a topic that pisses me off to the extreme. Want to know why? People are whores. Sorry, but it has to be said.  
Now, my profile picture is just me and my friend, from when we got dressed up to go out one day, just simple and real, but when everyone else is on Facebook, they feel it completely necessary to slut themselves up and take a photo at a random ass angle, mainly focusing on their chest, (if they’re a girl that is), and making themselves look like a total motherf’in slut for people theyll probably never even meet in their life,or for people who know what they look like, and know pretty damn well they’re not that plastic little spastic they believe they are. 
Like, even though you’re probably about 14 and have like no experience whatsoever, you deem it cool to straighten your hair to like a fricken …dead thing (I couldn’t think of anything else ha) and put on about 15 inches of foundation and powder and crap then get the biggest pushup bra ever, then stuff it with tissues, and wear the most revealing top in the world. Like, if you went out on the street looking like that,people would ask you how much you charge. Like, dude, your 14 put a fricken turtle neck on. 
Also, they dont think it’s a good idea for people to recognise them by their face (if it’s even recognisable from the amount of paint you plastered yourself in) but for the picture to be a shot from a slightly high angle, focusing on their non existent -or fake- chest. Like, oh yeah! I know who you are by that chest! Uh, no. 
And then they all pull the same pose. It’s either the hand cupping the ear and the duck pout, or the arm like in a snooty handbag-on-the-elbow pose with the duck pout, or it’s the yum let me nibble on my fingers and then look like I’m about to cry pose. Like, seriously, be original.
Another thing I don’t get, is when girls, and guys, just take a random picture in the mirror with a pouting face on their Nokia or blackberry or other crappy overrated phone, and what’s worse,is they don’t like to look into the mirror, they’re looking at the phone, and most of the time you can’t even see they’re ugly whorelike face because the fricken phones in the way. Mm, attractive hashtag-sarcasm. But what makes me laugh the most is when people take said photos in bathrooms or other random places and you’re like mm, toilet… Ha. 
And one thing that just annoys me to like the brink of… Annoyance(?)… Is when people like badly edit their pictures and put like words, like omg best boif fo evahhh an a daaiii ‘xo mwaaa baybehhh ❤ like, get me a bucket,its so fricken tacky.
And people who make their pictures like cars or strippers and youre like, oh yeah, that’s exactly what you look like…. 
So Yeaaah, that’s what grinds my….things.. that.. grind…(?) (I’m really bad with the comparisons thing tonight…) . Please enlighten me on why people do this??
 
See you tomorrow! 😉 keep looking sexual on Facebook kids! 😉
Don’t forget the pouty face!

Why I want to hit exams in the face.

28 Apr

Oh hey! Sorry for my recent absence from my blogging life, (if I even have one!) but I’ve been really busy, and that brings up what i want to talk about today…
…exams.
Now, for my British readers especially, exams are a big pain in the butt. Like high fat contents foods and long waiting, but much worse. 
So most of you, if you go to secondary school, will be experiencing GCSEs/A-levels. I’m in year 12 and im doing my A levels (yeah, duh) German, psychology, human biology and re/philosophy to be exact. I know. Ew.
So, as I go to a grammar school, all teachers ever seem to go on about is exams and results and blah blah blah blah. You know what I’m talking about? Cool.
So, I was casually sitting with the year 7s in my mentor group, which is basically just 20 minutes a day of mixed age group crap and they got these exam time tables, then the year 8s did, and I was like what the muffins is going on? Like dude, when I did year 7 and 8 I did f-all in all of my subjects- and now they’re taking exams?? Bull. And also, year 8s in my school are starting their language GCSEs and I’m like dude, when I was year 8 I probably knew how to say like a few simple sentences, and I’m sitting there trying to help some of them get through their speaking and writing exams, like a good sixth former that I am, and they’re all talking about verb endings and the dative and like conditional phrases and I’m like wtf is that. Like, what?!
When I was a kid -well, at that age- life was about having fun and doing nothing in lessons and making your teachers cry (my class got a count of 80% before we separated…) and now they’re shoving knowledge and exams down their tummies and it’s just not fun. Dude.
Another thing about exams…
…I don’t know why they have a time limit. I honestly don’t. When they do that, they’re basically asking you to show how much you can write in an allotted about of time, not completely the knowledge. Like, I could write a banging philosophy essay,  and it’ll take me about an hour or so just to make sure that I get everything in the right order and that is neat and grammatically correct and I can think it through blah blah blah and in 2 weeks I have to write 4 essays in like 2.5 hours and it’s like what the hell. So no matter how smart you are, if you’re a slow writer, you’re screwed. Please explain this to me, I’m not even kidding. It’s like, you’re not going to magically cheat the answer if you sit there for 3 hours compared to 2 like, how does it help? It doesn’t. And even if they did need to time exams, why dont they give it realistic timings?? Like, in my re/philosophy exam, I have 37.5 minutes (yes, 37.5 what a pisstake number) on each side, and I have 24 minutes to write a factual essay, AO1, then TWELVE minutes to write an evaluation essay, AO2. Now how I am meant to do it and make it good in twelve minutes I have NO idea. I mean, give us some realistic timings dude.
And then no matter how well you try you see your teachers once you get your results, and they’re like “good try” and it’s like the most patronising thing anyone can ever say to you, like they’re basically saying, well done for giving it a go, but you’re sh*t. Niiice. Why bother?
Anyone else share my annoyance?? Comment below.
Blog you again soon!

Technology sucks.

16 Apr

Good evening bloggers, and blog readers…

So today I want to talk about this magical invention some of you might have heard of. It’s called technology. And what I want to talk about specifically, is why it fricken hates me.
Now, I’m a 17 year old, and a good portion of my “disposable income” (well, what’s left of my minimum wage that’s not been spent of Starbucks everyday and clothes that I’ll never actually wear…) goes towards buying new technology. So my dad (when he’s not working 24/7 doing god knows what) spends a lot of his time on technology, too, so I’ve always grown up having the newest and best technology going, my favourite collection being every game boy and Pokemon game produced, but that’s just me. And recently, it’s started to dawn on me that technology sucks. In spend about £20-£30 a month on updating or new technology. My latest rip off was a Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad. (I’ll get to the iPad later.) now, it wasn’t expensive, and therefore I don’t expect much and I’m not that picky or anything, but if I do expect one thing, thats for it to work. I opened the box, after the delivery already being like 3 days late, and hooked it up. It worked for about an hour, then it slowly stopped. (the hint was when the word ‘evolution’ became ‘en’. Yeah, a slight give away I know) and I thought ok, it must be out of charge. So I put it on charge, and 24 hours later, I try again, and it’s not working, other than the occasional ‘e’ then it stops working again (I’m fighting for the company for a refund.). Fun stuff, I know. And surely if there’s this new, wonderful technology that’s like sending people and robots into outer space and making like phones that plug into your head, then the concept of a keyboard, which was discovered like, a hundred or more years ago should be pretty fricken easy. Obviously not.
And about my iPad… I bought it in the summer, and every time I try to sync it up to my computer, all of my apps just break and I can’t use them. And then I have to reset my iPad to factory settings, then restore it to my settings and my photos blah blah blah (my iPads called splat, by the way, in case anyone was interested…) and it’s just a nightmare. Now if I’m spending like £450 on some machine smaller than a piece of paper, then I fricken expect it to do what it’s supposed to do. And worse, I just go onto the apple website, and they ask me to PAY to ask them a simple question- here’s exactly that they say, and I quote: ” Based on the information we have for your product, you may need to purchase a single incident of support or an AppleCare Protection Plan to speak with an Advisor. ”  are they fricken KIDDING ME? They’ve got to be kidding.they’re kidding me. Seriously.
But what’s more of a piss take is blackberry. Now blackberry is a pretty well known, and widely used phone producer, but the quality and service of the blackberry handset is shocking. I’ve had my blackberry storm (the slider one that looks like a traditional slide phone got sat on) for exactly a year now, and every month, without fail, it breaks. The camera never works, and the Internet doesnt work, and recently it’s stopped sending my texts all together. And if I’m paying monthly, I expect to get what I pay for. Gosh darnit.
I mean, dude, I am so unlucky when it comes to technology. I’m on my second laptop in a year (and even that ones broken) and its just ridiculous how crappy technology for really simple things are these days. I want to go back to the days of the brick Nokia where entertainment is playing snake in black and white. Llamas, that was the best, and I’m sure if I started that phone up itd work. Even after being thrown again a brick wall. And chewed. And dropped in the toilet. And god knows what else.
Oh and my Internet never works. 
Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?
Ok night! :* 

(And yes, I’m slowly typing this on my iPad while giving my crappy not working keyboard the evil eye, and contemplating the temptation of it exiting my room via the window.)

to frape or not to frape

15 Apr

good afternoon bloggers!
so ive not been making posts the past few days (i know shame… lol!) but i was away with my best friend up north having some retail therapy and so on, so you know, nothing too exciting 😉
so today, and  for quite a while, ive been pondering about the topic of ‘fraping’. for those of my friends who are not aware of what this act is, ill explain it to you simply: someone leaves themselves logged in on facebook, and you feel the undying need to go onto their facebook and set status, pretending that youre them, and try to making it embarassing.
now, as i am 17 and have quite a few friends on facebook, (and twitter, as well..) i have quite a lot of experience with this whole ‘fraping’or “facebook raping”(if you dont know, dont ask…) and to be pretty honest, the whole thing baffles me. it makes you wonder, why?! sometimes, you  hear of people  being there when they are written, (i have experience)and theyre like “frape me”. why?? do these people really have nothing better to do with their lives??? “hmm what shall we do? go shopping? go for a walk? go for a drink? go jump off of  a fricken building??” “naa, id rather sit on your facebook and write stupid statuses that add nothing to you life whatso ever.” i mean, is that how it happens??
even more, is that its so fricken obvious when someone is the fraper or the frapee, because 99% of the time,the status will revolve about being gay/lesbian/wanting sex or what, but theyre so obvious, i mean, do people actually read these statuses and think, wow this person is kinda weird, and actually take the status seriously? uh, i think not…
also, does it in any what make the frapers day at al brighter?? like, do they set the status and think, wooow, my day just got 858447287528x better?? if so, please go find another, more productive hobby…
and what makes it even more funny, is when the person have like a string on 10 strange statuses, then they feel the need to go on their facebook and be like “omg ignore those statuses they were not me!” and you think to yourself “god, i had NO idea…” (hashtag-sacrasm)
so yeah, if you have any enlightening information for me on why this is fun, or whatever, comment below.
ok byeeeee 🙂 :* 

coffee addiction

11 Apr

good evening world!!

so today, when i was chugging down my large soy caramel macchiato with soy milk (yes, i have the longest order in the world) i was thinking to myself, why the hell am i drinking this. i’ll tell you why; starbucks is my fricken life. yes, its sad but true. every day on my way to school i get my usual. its even come to the point where they know me in there and know exactly what i want to order. and i was thinking; this can’t be normal. ive talked to like all of my friends (i know i dont have many, but still) and they just think im weird. and then i was like “holy llamas, i think i have a serious addiction”. a couple of weeks/months (they all roll into one nowadays) ago, i had these two weeks where i went completely off of food ( not intended, i love food waaaaay too much) and all i have, no word of a lie, was like 6 or 7 big cans of red bull a day and a coffee, and i think thats where my addiction truly started. before then, i was like yeah, chill, one or two coffees a day, but now im lik, dude, i cant live without some caffeine in my daiy routine. has anyone else experienced this? i think im just weird! and im sure its not like the average 17 year old to go home with like a jug of black coffee (im lactose intolerant, and to be honest, white coffee is just too wimpy) and just chug, then complain about nausea. 

thats another thing. it used to be like a latte with like half the shots of coffee in than a regular latte, but now its like expresso black coffee, i know im really that weird.who else on here loves coffeee??? yes? lets be friends 😉

so yeah, now that i just started talking about coffee i just cant stop!!

heres my recipe for an amazing breakfast:

1)get a cup of ice

2)make a black coffee (quite strong)

3)pour milk (or in my case, soy milk) over the ice, about 2/3 of the liquid capacity

4)add caramel macchiato coffeemate powdered creamer to coffee and stir (or just caramel sauce)

5)pour coffee over milk and ice and stir.

5.5)spill all over the table

6)drink!!

^^^^ this is my daily breakfast 😉 congrats, enjoy my wisdom! 😉

omg yes i did just spend this whole blog talking about coffee, now im going to make a latte 😉

i made a cool set of pictures on how to make one but it wont upload. hashtag-hatelife.

love life.

and comment if you agree with coffee obsessions!!

Movies that annoy me

10 Apr
Hey chickens!
So today I had a productive day with my momma, and now and spending my afternoon sleeping, eating and watching movies.
But what i really wanted to talk about was some really annoying movies, and by some, I mean one, and by movies, I mean Charlie and the chocolate factory, you know, the one with Johnny depp?? Yeaaaah, that one.
So what pisses me off totally about this movie is the actors -especially Charlie and his dads- voices and accents. What I don’t get is 1) where this movie is even meant to have taken place 2) WHY CHARLIE AND HIS FAMILY ARE THE ONLY ONES WITH THESE ANNOYING BRITISH ACCENTS THAT ARE SO FAKE BUT SPEAK AMERICAN WORDS, WHICH IS DOUBLY ANNOYING. Now, I have American parents, and I grew up with these American words, but I know they sound GHASTLY in a British accent, so why put it in a movie?! I mean they say words like candy and summer vacation, and everytime in hear them I just want to hit someone in the face,  Grr. And like, they live in a place where everyone else has American accents, and they dont? I’m yet to find someone who agrees with me, or understands where I’m going with this.
Also, its so super-über annoying, when Charlie finds the ticket, and everyone’s like, “aww he found a ticket even though he’s a poor loser!” And I’m like, no, seriously?? Is s obvious that he finds one eventually otherwise all the movie would be is him sitting outside of the factory, psychoticslly licking the gate chanting “that should have been me”. Seriously? No. Hashtag-goddamit.
Further, (some of my excessive essay writing has come into play here ;)) some of the KEY things from the first movie, are like NOT THERE. Where’s the room where Charlie’s flying?? The lickable wallpaper with the snazberries or however the hell you spell it. Or that creepy guy that tried to get Charlie to do a bad thing?! Like seriously?? That was like iconic gold from the first movie and they go and fricken throw it away. Disgusting.
AND WHERE IN THE BOOK DOES IT SAY THAT WILLY WONKA WAS A NEGLECTED (or candy deprived) child, then went on a massive sugar psychotic binge, then like own a chocolate factory? What I want to know is how in hell did  he get gabillions of dollars (or pounds) to fricken pay for that?? Like come ON. Massive flaws in the story line.
Grr this movie just fricken annoys me.
And Johnny depp looks like a pedophile. Just going to throw that one out there, make of it what you will.
I could probably do like a 20 minute YouTube video on this.
Kbye kids, see you tomorrow! :*
(If I don’t kill myself trying to work out this mucked up movie)
Wow I rambled on a lot. I hope someone shares my interest/hatred/annoyance. Comment below if so, then well be like, best friends for life.

Hello world!

9 Apr

hey world!!

hows it going? 😉

my name’s Rachael, and welcome to my new blog!! 😉

so im kinda’ a nobody who likes talking, and ive always wanted to have a blog, just so i can put down some of my random-ass thoughts on something (even if no-one wants to read them, -sad face-). so im Rachael, yah ive said that already people tend to call me rack, even though thats got nothing to so with my physical appearance (no, seriously). i love baking, taking photos and basically talking about random crap in my life, so if you share an interest in those things, hey! lets be friends! (or just read my blog ;)). so im hoping to have fun with this blog and see where it takes me. id love to do blogging as my job when im older. (especially if my dream  of being a princess doesnt come true hashtag-itshouldhavebeenme) but ah well, i have time to have fun!

and im blonde. thats always a bonus!

im one of those people who tend to get really hyper (redbull, i love you..) and take random-ass photos of myself jumping around acting like a loser, and then post them on the internet, (yes, i wish i had the excuse that im a regular drinker, but alas, i dont) then be like what the muffins did i do that for, then have people laugh at me, which is always funny, so expect to see some crazy stuff on here!! also, im one of those peope who is always dared to do stuff, and even when i shoud really have the common sense by now to say no, i alway say yes. so yeah, look forward to some of that coming your way 😉

oh yeah, i also like to invent my own catchphrases, so beware.

send me something on the comments page and i’ll catch up with you later!!
