One Less Lonely Marshmallow

So, I’m staying in a house by the beach for a couple days. It’s a small, brick house and therefore is flipping freezing but on the plus side… there’s a fireplace!

As soon as I arrived here I knew marshmallows had to be got.

So marshmallows were got.

A whole packet.

And a bunch of skewers, too.

As I ventured to experience the deliciousness this evening, I came to the realization that in the past few days I had managed to consume the whole packet and there was only one, lonely marshmallow left.

One soft, pudgy, pink, plump, marshmallow.

To deal with the pain, and prolong the sweet memory, I knew there was only one thing I could do… Instagram it.

Things I’ll be doing over winter break

So, while the other half of the world is enjoying their summer vacation, us Australians are stuck with cold, wet, miserable weather. To top it off, most of the good T.V shows are wrapping up (which kind of gives me more incentive to not become best friends with my electric blanket & kettle). However, because university is awesome… winter holidays are just as long, giving me heaps of time to wind down, wind up and wind sideways.
Here’s what I’ll be doing over winter:

1) Driving- hopefully enough to get my license.

2) Go to the beach- Yes, in winter the coast is friggen freezing, but its also pretty and recluse.

3) Working & making money (snore… one of the perils of being a student. Plus, I kind of want to go to New York next year)

4) Learn a new song on guitarImage

5) The Glee Project & True Blood (enough said)

6) Blog more

7) Apply for a dream work attachment

8) Build up some muscle mass

9) Catch up with old buds

10) Clean my room

11) Bake Brownies

What I’m listening to

In two or so months time I’ll be attending Splendor In The Grass Music Festival! woohoo!
Then, a few days after that… I’m going to Ed Sheeran! yipee!
Then, a few months after that… I’m going to Coldplay! huzzah!
Then, about a year after that… I’m going to One Direction! … not really though. (I wish I was… LOLJKS… I’m not kidding… I’m kidding about not kidding haha! … or am I?)

Anyways, without further a due, these are the albums I’m currently listening to.

360- Falling and Flying

If you haven’t heard of this dude, he’s an aussie rapper/ hip hop artist. Mmm… I know what you’re thinking. An Australian rapper? really!?. I get it, Australian rap is a contentious issue and maybe I’m biased but I just love authenticity of his voice. I love that you can feel his passion in his voice.
I’m super pumped to see him at SITG.
He’s weirdly attractive despite his neck+hand tattoos plus, behind his hardcore facade I reckon he’s a really gentle guy.
My favorite track is Killer. The song has a boss video clip to go with it, so check it out.

Fun. – Some Nights

It’s been wicked watching Fun. grow these past few years and getting the recognition they deserve. I feel in love with Nate Ruess back in the day he was the frontman for The Format. His voice is so quirky and adorably different that it makes me feel like jelly inside. This album is really… well… for lack of a better word… fun. It’s really lively and mostly upbeat- probably something I’d listen to at the gym.
My favorite track is It Gets Better. It’s a really happy tune that kind of encapsulates what these three legendary guys are about and everything that I love them for.

The Shins- Port of Morrow

The only way I can really describe this album or really any album by The Shins is… totally chillaxed. James Mercer is a god… His voice sounds like it has been refined by a rare, majestical audio filter (in a good way). I find that their albums are kind of hard to get into but gosh, once you are into them, their tracks don’t expire. I’ve been listening to Simple Song and Fall of 82′ on repeat.
The album makes me want to gracefully sway about and hectically head-bang simultaneously.
I would listen to these tracks on the train home from a long day or at my computer, whilst I mindlessly lurk the web.


Kate Miller-Heidke-  Nightflight

This album is very unlike anything I’d usually listen to. Each track is insanely chilling in it’s own way. I feel like when I’m listening to this album I can’t really be doing anything else- that her music requires my full attention which is a pretty amazing thing.
Each individual song tells a powerful story. I kid you not, a feature length film could be made out of any one of these songs.
Massive props to Kate Miller-Heidke on this quirky, intense new album.

Celebrities/ Characters that have appeared in my dreams

I have the strangest dreams and for the most part I don’t talk about them in fear that people will decode the dreams, and thus discover how much of a whackjob I am.

These are some celebrities that have appeared in my dreams:
Rebecca Black- drove me to a theme park to hang out together
Justin Bieber- was a mate of my brothers
Whitney Cummings- was going to set me up with a man

These are some characters that have appeared in my dreams:
Rachel Berry- and I were having a deep and meaningful conversation about her tangled love life
Ross Gellar- and I were having some quality one-on-one banter as we were washing dishes

Weird, huh?

An extremely traumatic experience

Okay, so let me set the scene for you: It’s late in the evening after a big day and I’m kicking back on the couch watching some reality t.v.
It’s bucketing down with rain outside and I’m enjoying the warmth of my tea and the comfort of my blanket.

An ad break comes on and I realize that my dog is just outside the door barking for me to let him in (he was under cover, chill). I let him and he bolts through the house in excitement leaving a trail of wetness, mud and wet dog smell behind.

I feel a lil’ sorry for him so I wrap him in a towel and put him in the laundry room to dry off. Maybe a dog treat will calm him down? Oh look, an unopened bag of dog treats is on the counter, I’ll give him one of those. It’s one of those large, plastic, sachet-bags with a re-seal able opening. I open the bag and reach right in to pull out one of these ‘pork flavored treats’ boy, didn’t I know what I was getting myself intoImage.

So I get a hold of a piece. Feels normal, like a dry strip of bacon. I look down to see what I had just removed from the bag and it was THE MOTHERFUCKING FOOT OF A DEAD PIG. What kind of fuckery is this? I freak the fuck out and drop the treat, running out of the laundry. Once I’ve calmed down, I return to the laundry to take a picture, naturally.

I touched that.

Iheld it in my hand

I feel so so dirty.

My New (Half-of-the)Year Resolutions

New Half of the year Resolutions? Why not wait till Next year?

Well a few reasons actually. I started university this year so I devoted the first half of the year to settling in, finding a job and not really worrying about that whole bettering-myself crap. Also, on account of my inherent ability to put things off, I only thought about purchasing a 2012 diary about a month ago, and by that time all that was left were bloody financial year diaries which don’t start till the 1st of June. So I figure, new diary= new me.

1. (the mandatory) Put more effort into my studies

2. Fix up my sleeping pattern. – Organize my timetable so that class starts in the morning not after midday… afternoons can be spent doing productive things, unlike mornings (which are often spent sleeping). Plus, sleep is for the dead yo

3. Avoid laptopping in bed (damn, its so tempting to laptop in my comfy-ass bed but this lil ol’ habit screws up my sleeping pattern too)

4. Go to the gym more, it’s $70 a month ffs!

5. Put more effort into appearance (this comes with waking up earlier).
…A few weeks ago I randomly felt compelled to attempt winged-liquid eyeliner and by some miracle, it actually worked. Maybe I could make winged eyeliner my thing.

6. Read more.
…I’ve already kind of started doing this. I just started a book called Brida by Paulo Coelho the other day and despite the fact that thus far, the plotline is extremely cringeworthy, it’s a start.

7. Spend less money on coffee… 3 Starbucks a day is a little excessive. Plus, Starbucks coffee isn’t even that good. No, that’s a lie… I’m no coffee connoisseur (as much as I’d like to be) so Starbucks is pretty damn good to me.

8. Get outside more.
…I’m starting to look a little pasty (which is kind of annoying, because now it’s winter in Australia)

9. Attempt some new hobbies/meet new people (gogo dancing or improv classes could be interesting/fun/an experience)

10. Stop being stagnant and start moving forward!
