why school and summer annoys me

20 May

good evening bloggers!

hope you all had a lovely, peaceful weekend, ‘cuz i didnt. -.- sat on the floor in my living room ALL weekend, doing nothin but human biology revision for my exam tomorrow. might have a myocardial infarction ive done so much (its a biology joke- get it?? ;)) <- evidence that ive revised too much, haha.

so as exams (kinda) come to an end, that means that summer is upon us. or so we think- look outside at all of the rain and you might be fooled that it is still february- and its that time of year, where im freaking out as hell over what to do this summer.

so every summer for the whole of my life, i have gone to america to visit family, and the past 6 summers i have gone to sleep away camp. but this summer, is the first summer in my whole life that i am not booked to go (im too old to go to summer camp now- boo.) and it sucks, and its like the wierdest thing ever.

so, ive been looking frantically for summer jobs, and i dont know what to do. ive tried to apply to loads of summer camps in America, but i cant work there because their summer season starts in the end of June, and i dont get out of school until the end of July and they wont let me work there for only the second month- i know, it sucks. and i have a part time job at the moment (yeaaah bigging it up working in retail..-.-) and i DO NOT want the highlight of my summer to be working 2 evenings a week in a store. thats just not happening- especially when i need to buy a car this summer (any donations happily accepted ;)) and it just sucks. i have been on pretty much every website on this magical thing called the internet, and i am pulling a blank.i feel like one of those adults who are like massively in debt and unemployed and are in need of a job, but pull up a zero. you know?

now, i am quite a good student, and  have some good GCSEs and i have a good CV (been working since i was 14), so why is it so difficult to get a job? i know people will be thinking, “oh everyone says that, its a recession blah blah blah” but what im saying, is what makes me so unqualified and unable to get a job?? like, seriously?? im literally scraping the barrel with different jobs that i would do this summer- i started looking at day care centers, and for those of you who know, me, you know that i do not like children, and i never EVER dream of having them, but there you go. i will do anything to have something exciting to do this summer, and not just work part time at a store and sleep for the rest of the weeks- that is not me. i am just one of those people that HAS to have something planned to do every day and i hate just sitting around all day.

but what i dont understand, is why the UK feels the need to keep children in school from september to JULY. every other country (America, israel, Germany etc) think “hey, lets let our children enjoy the summer, and let them finish school in june” . but no. the UK doesnt think that, and it pisses me off. you know? its not like in july after exams we actually do anything. for example, my school has told me, that even though i am not continuing some of my subjects next year into A2,i am still expected to be going to EVERY LESSON. like, whyyy?? you know?? blah. this is not fun and i hate the british school system, i really do. i wish i could be like president-primisterer-ess or whatever theyre called JUST to change the laws on schools. who’s with me????

blahh. comment below if you agree with me on school/summer jobs etc.

and reading this back really shows how little focus/lack of a point this has lol. but still.

Bitches on the Internet

17 May

Good evening!!
Well, as always I’m sorry for not gracing you with my presence, but if you are one of my English/British readers, then you will know full well that may = exam time, and for me, that means 9 AS level exams. (don’t worry I’ve already blogged about why exams piss me off. Take a read)
So today i had my German speaking exam. And one of the topics I had to be asked about was friendship, and false friends and online bullying. Now this is quite a good topic for me, and I have lots of experience in these fields, sadly, including the latter.
My best friend is my world. I’m just going to put that out there. Weve been best friends since the first day of year 7, so 5 years ago, and we’re still best friends, I love her to pieces. And I have lots of friends. They’re all great and stuff, but what I fail to understand (and someone explain to me if I’m being naive) is why some people choose to be fake friends with someone.
Like you see it all the time in like movies and stuff… And you’re like, oh that’ll never happen to me. Then it does. I was best friends with this one girl, and she was like my sister, we were like that close, and there was this other friend, and they used to be best friends before I knew my best friend, and they got really close again, and it turned out that the other girl was a fake friend to me to get my best friend. And I’m like, dude, whyyyyy?? Like, what’s the point. Honestly. What is the purpose. I know I’m the coolest person in this whole fricken universe (I am. Ask my mum) but come in, grow up. Like, what benefit do people get out of it. I can’t lie like a simple lie about like what I had for lunch to my friends, never mind be fake friends with someone for LOLs. Yeah k weirdos.
Another thing which is pretty annoying, is like people, especially girls, (sorry to be sexist, but it’s true…) feel like beefcakes on the Internet. They’re like, oh look at that bitch’s photo. She looks like she’s been attacked by a sponge covered in orange paint. Or “oh look at her. She’s only got like 100 friends hashtag-foreveralone” and like in reality, they’re a scrawny little 12 year old who couldn’t fight a cold. Like, seriously. And how girls feel they can say mean things to others over the Internet, and it’s ok. Uh, no. If anything it makes you look like a shy loser. I mean everyone’s done it, I’ll admit that, but I don’t go to the extent that some girls go.
So about 3 years ago, I had this thing called formspring, which was like totally popular then, and for you younger readers who shouldn’t have bee surfing the net 3-4 years ago, it’s basically a site where you make a profile and people can ask you questions, either by their profile or anonymously (I have no idea how to spell that :3). So I was like dude yeah this is fun send some funny questions to my friends like “what’s your favourite powerpuff girl hashtag-90skid” and theyd be like “dude that’s fricken harsh” but then I started getting questions, which, to defeat the point, weren’t actually, questions. They were just comments people had about me that they were too chickensh*t to tell me to my face or even Facebook me about. It started about like I was short, or I was ugly, or I was the third wheel in that mess I told you about earlier, but then people started telling me that they wish hitler had killed my family, and it was a shame they survived, and that people wished that I would die, and making fun of my jewish nose asking me if it hurts or if I could breathe (yes, that did make my chuckle) and when i was getting a nose job and stuff, and hope my family all get in this big accident and die or something like that. And I was like who the hell is this. How disgusting for someone to say something like that to another person, and the whole hitler thing was way too far (I’d already been picked on before for being the only Jewish person in my school) and theres just no need for it, because I honestly think that I am a genuinely nice person. I smile at everyone, I’m friendly blah blah blah, so why do that to someone?
I just think its wrong, that’s all. What do you think? Give,e your wisdom! 🙂
Sorry this is so morbid and dull. I had a really good idea about something to write, but as I started writing I forgot. (I know, I’m totally clueless)
Write to you soon hopefully!! 🙂
Comment below if you agree/disagree/have something to add. 😉

Love you! :*

Carrot cake.

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!
:*

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.)

Muffins.
