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!!
