just sayin', I've mentioned Shivani in both my last posts. OH SHIVANI, MY SWEET BELOVED, DO YOU SEE THE IMPACT YOU HAVE MADE IN MY LIFE?! :D
OMFGSH YOU BETTER READ THIS.
date/time 9:26 PM
GOOD EVENING! :D I TRUST YOU ARE ALL DOING WELL :) IT'S FINALLY FRIDAY NIGHT, AND I AM SURE EVERY YEAR 11 HURLSTONIAN IS EATING, SLEEPING OR CONDUCTING AN ACTIVITY THAT REQUIRES ONLY A LIMITED AMOUNT OF BRAIN USAGE! >:D
Highlight of today was definitely Mr Trotter's talk at HCF. He handled a controversial topic very well, and learning his own pathway and perspective of God VS Science kind of helped me with my own realisation and building of my personal belief of the topic. I would say more, but I feel kind of....uncomfortable and awkward blogging my religious beliefs.
Dindot get to see the Jap kids :c I HEARD ANNAG AND MANI'S BOYS WERE DARN CUTE D: NOT FAIR NOT FAIR NOT FAIR. THE ONE TIME GOOD LOOKING BOYS SHOW UP TO HURLSTONE AND I'M NOT THERE TO SEDUCE THEM HAHAHAHA ;D
Rarararar, I love ancient sosososososo much. Today was very productive HEHEHEH, just bonding with Shivani the entire period. We talked about a lot of things and IT WAS SO SO SO MUCH FUN, and far out, I KNOW I SAY THIS IN PRACTICALLY EVERY POST, but the fact that we have almost finished high school is killing me more each day. And I've loved it, I really have, but the one thing I regret is not getting to know people. I mean, yeah, you have the heys and byes and waddarps and FCKNOMGWHATTHEFUCKMATHS but to sit down and talk to people and actually get to know them is something I wish I did more often. The one thing that I'll remember about Hurlstone would be the wonderful people. Once I start to age, and develop even worse hearing and memory than I possess now, I'll be forgetting you one by one - even the really really really really important ones who I love A LOT. From now on, I am going to try SO SO SO SO HARD to try and prevent it from happening, even though it's kind of inevitable. If I know everyone better, if I hold on just a bit tighter, and it's the one less regret I'll have. I know I only have a year and a bit left, but, YIH, 29/7/11 RESOLUTION!
Sorry for posting such a lame thing :| but to make up for blogging about a sappy and mushy and dumb thing, I'll blog about some macho manly stuff next time B)
HAVE A GOOOD WEEKEND EVERYBAADEEEEE!

I'm sorry that I'm not posting anything interesting or fun because right now, the story of my life goes like this:
honestly, I am just physically incapable of anything except for eating and sleeping after quadruple maths cycle, and hehe, calculus is actually kind of fun, and I like it, but fdnsivfbsdfbs WHEN I HAVE FOUR LESSONS OF MATHS IN A ROW I CAN'T ABSORB ANYTHANG.
ancient booklets stink so much. I think I will do what Shivani does and air freshen mine. C'mon, I know the Romans stank coz they never washed and they weren't the most hygienic civilisation, but do you really have to communicate their stench to me T_T
nonetheless, all pissy things aside, I am sosososososos relieved, as well as many other people, that biology and economics is over....until the yearlies. whoop de doo. have a lovely week everyone, and embrace this beautiful weather before it decides to piss on us again! :D:D:D

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
It was absolutely spectacular and phenomenal. David Yates, congratulations - no one could have pulled it off better. You ended millions of peoples' childhoods with a bang, and as we walked out that cinema theatre, still dabbing our eyes, feeling a little empty inside, we felt so proud to have taken this journey, so proud to have lived it, and so proud to have finished it magnificently. I admit, the feeling of pride is currently overriding the grief I'll be experiencing in a minute, but let's take advantage of it and review the movie, shall we m'dears?
The scenery was breathtaking - all those views of Hogwarts kind of startled you and made you broken inside as to how Voldemort could destroy such a place that so many people called home, including him. McGonagall was amazing, brave, funny, and without a doubt every person in the cinema felt a massive pang of love for the woman when she stood between Snape and Harry. Griphook and Lucius did really well; honestly, this is such a weird feeling, but I am so proud of GriphookLOL. in the book, I hated him. Hated him for leaving the trio. But in the movie, there was something enchanting about him that kind of made me forgive him :P I cried. A lot. Actually I think that might be an understatement HAHAHAHA. Fred, Lupin, Snape, Tonks, and everyone else who died in the Hogwarts Battle, RIP. Severus Snape. The memories were so eloquent, so beautiful, and absolutely heart breaking. As Severus held Lily, when baby Harry had silent tears streaming down his face even though he was too young to fully understand what was happening, and as Lily told Harry that "mama loves you, papa loves you", and when Severus showed Dumbledore his patronus - I was wrung dry of my tears. It was soooo funny at some parts :L Ron and McGonagall were hilarious, and even Voldemort at times was unintentionally funny HAHAHA. The kiss? Twas random, but it happened, and oh my the whole audience wolf whistled and clapped. OOH, MY AUDIENCE WAS AMAZING. A LITTLE ANNOYING TO START OFF WITH, WITH THE CHATTER AND INAPPROPRIATE SCREAMING, BUT OMGSH, I GREW TO LOVE THEM SO MUCH AS WE ALL CHEERED AND CLAPPED TOGETHER. Might I also say that I ran into a few people: Joanne and Amanda from year 10, Catherine Londos from year 9, Kaushalya!, a whole bunch of ex HAHSers from last year, and ofc Ashley, Anh and Diem :D I shouldn't be surprised that so many HAHSers went to HP midnight screening >:D
AND MIGHT I SAY, THERE WAS SOOOO MUCH SEXUAL TENSION BETWEEN NEVILLE AND LUNA AT ONE BIT.
Well, I hope you all had/have a wonderful experience. It's not the end - stories only ever end when there is no one left to listen to them. And guys, I know that we'll all be listening to the tale of the thin eleven year old with green eyes and a lightning bolt scar for a long time comin'.

I've been looking through http://www.letterstocrushes.com/ lately as a form of procrastination; some of the letters are corny but sweet, some are just quotes, but this one: it's beautifully written.
I wish I could write a well worded letter to you. I wish it could be poetic and lovely, eloquent and beautiful; the kind of letter that makes you fall head over heels in love with me. Sadly, I can't write that kind of letter. I can't make anyone fall in love with me. I have no control of that. I can be a lovable person, I can be open to love, but that is all and the best I can do.
I could write to you about how your cheekbones stick out a little, and how your eyes are this shining amber color that seem to light up when you get excited. How your hands are rough looking, and when you are nervous or tired you tend to cover your face with them. How you have the straightest teeth I have ever seen, and even when you yawn and scrunch up your face, I see you as perfectly imperfect.
I could write about how quiet you are. How I constantly wonder what is happening inside your head, and have a million questions to ask you but don't. How I get frustrated when you give me one word answers, or you can't think of what to say and we just sit there in silence. How I fall a little bit harder when you tell me a story about yourself, or when you have something important to tell me and you point to me with eyes wide before stating whatever it is.
I could also write about your intelligence. How you make these contraptions and inventions like it is the simplest thing in the world, how you barely study and ace your classes. How much this impresses me. How you seem to have things together. I sometimes wonder if you really do, or if you just keep that to yourself.
I could tell you how much your personal space issues bug me, how daily I remind myself not to invade them or push you too far. It kills me when you wont hug me. The day you high fived me on your own was the biggest thing for me. I just worry what you are feeling if you wont hug me, but spend so much time with me. What do you mean by that. But I do know, that whatever steps you take on your own without me forcing them, is a big deal.
I could write about how you are with me. How you listen when I talk, and remember the little things. Even if I talk too much, and am sleep deprived or hyped up on coffee. At most you give me that look, and I tone it down. Never do you look annoyed. You always seem so patient with me.
I could write you many things. About things you do, and how you are, and why these things make you wonderful and absolutely fascinate me. I could write to you about how much you mean to me, and how thankful I am to have you in my life. But sadly, these things wont make you fall in love with me. This letter could not make you fall in love with me, this letter couldn't make anyone fall in love with me.
I remember ten years ago, when I was 6, in Year 1, sitting in a Beverly Hills cinema with my mum and dad, watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for the first time. There weren't a lot of people, and this was way before Beverly Hills cinema renovated. I'm going to be honest: I didn't really want to watch it. But my mum and dad were insistent that I did.
Two hours and thirty two minutes later, I was walking out of the theatre, amazed. I was enchanted with Harry and Hagrid's amazing friendship, admired Dumbledore, petrified of Lord Voldemort, and little did I know that the next ten years of my life would be shared with them.
Last year, the 18th of November very nearly counts as one of the most touching and memorable days of my life. I say this with the greatest sincerity: Year 11, you are honestly the best grade ever. I am so honoured and blessed to be a part of this family. That evening when we were all sitting there, occupying 2/3 rows, it was a magical feeling. It's been wonderful laughing, crying and obsessing over the Harry Potter journey. Mum and Dad; thanks for making me go to Beverly Hills Cinema and sparking my Harry Potter journey. To everyone else in the world who has cried, laughed and taken the Harry Potter journey: may the rest of your life be as magical as it has been for the past ten years, and keep up the legacy.
This isn't something that's going to die down. The books aren't going to gather dust on our bookshleves. It's going to be something where we pass the books down onto our children and grandchildren, where the bedtime stories we tell our children will be the Three Little Pigs and The Tale of the Three Brothers; it'll never stop.
Thank you Joanne Rowling. You truly brought magic back into a world where we needed it more than ever. You have no idea how many people in the world are so thankful for what you have created, and we are forever in debt to you.
In four days, the world stops to observe Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I can't freakin' wait.
