Happy Halloween!

Have fun, eat sweets and stay safe!

I’m A Person, Not a Stereotype

So, I’m a white female…

When I said that sentence, I’m sure you thought of a certain coffee shop chain. Sigh, Starbucks. I’m going to be brutally honest – I hate Starbucks. I don’t trust other people making my coffee, the thought of a pumpkin spiced latte makes me want to vomit and I hate noisy cafes with large queues: these happen to be the main reasons I can’t stand Starbucks.

I’m a person and I have my own opinions. Many white females may like Starbucks, but so do many white men. And many black people and many Caucasian people and many Asian people etc. Also a lot of people don’t like Starbucks, and I’m one of them, I’m not a stereotype

#NaBloPoMo Day 1

SONG OF THE WEEK Hozier Jackie and Wilson Video & Lyrics

I discovered Jackie and Wilson during the week. There are very few songs that I like the first time I hear them, but this is one of them. Hozier is amazing: the voice, the lyrics – where did this guy come from? I do hope that the line ‘Me and my Isis…’ does not relate to the terrorist group, I think it is just meant as an innocent name though.


 

Lyrics:

So tired trying to see from behind the red in my eyes,
No better version of me I could pretend to be tonight.
So deep in this swill with the most familiar of swine
For reasons wretched and divine.

She blows outta nowhere on a candle of the wild
Laughing away through my feeble disguise
No other version of me I would pretend to be tonight.
‘Cause, Lord, she found me just in time

‘Cause with my mid-youth crisis all said and done
I need to be youthfully felt ’cause, God, I never felt young

She’s gonna save me,
Call me “baby”,
Run her hands through my hair
She’ll know me crazy,
Sooth me daily
Better yet she wouldn’t care
We’ll steal her Lexus,
Be detectives,
Ride round picking up clues
We’ll name our children
Jackie and Wilson,
Raise em on rhythm and blues.

Lord, it be great to find a place we could escape sometime
Me and my Isis growing black irises in the sunshine
Every version of me dead and buried in the yard outside.
Sit back and watch the world go by.

Happy to lie back watch it burn and rust
We tried the world, good God, it wasn’t for us.

She’s gonna save me,
Call me “baby”,
Run her hands through my hair
She’ll know me crazy,
Sooth me daily
Better yet she wouldn’t care
We’ll steal her Lexus,
Be detectives,
Ride round picking up clues
We’ll name our children
Jackie and Wilson,
Raise em on rhythm and blues.

Cut clean from the green at night let my mind reset
Looking up from the cigarette, and she’s already left
I start picking up the art of what’s left of me and our little vignette
For whatever poor soul is coming next

She’s gonna save me,
Call me “baby”,
Run her hands through my hair
She’ll know me crazy,
Sooth me daily
Better yet she wouldn’t care
We’ll steal her Lexus,
Be detectives,
Ride round picking up clues
We’ll name our children
Jackie and Wilson,
Raise em on rhythm and blues.

NaBloPoMo

Last year, I remember looking with jealously at the National Blog Posting Month bloggers. Why? I wanted to be part of this community and I was annoyed with myself for not figuring out what NaBloPoMo was until the middle of November.

All bad feeling aside, this year I’m seriously considering taking part in it. It’s not like I have to write a 2000 word post every day, a few words will do and, of course, I really need to get my blogging game back on track.

Isn’t there a badge too? I like badges :)

SONG OF THE WEEK Nicki Minaj ft. Drake Anaconda Video & Lyrics

I appreciate that this song thing is horrific, but at the same time it’s my guilty pleasure. I’m glad that Nicki Minaj has began to tone down her look and I still hate Drake. I’m sorry, I’m really sincerely sorry that Anaconda has to go on Being Weirdly Awesome. It doesn’t even have anything to do with snakes. I hate snakes.

Lyrics:

My Anaconda don’t…
My Anaconda don’t…
My Anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun

Boy toy named Troy used to live in Detroit
Big dope dealer money, he was getting some coins
Was in shootouts with the law, but he live in a palace
Bought me Alexander McQueen, he was keeping me stylish
Now that’s real, real, real,
Gun in my purse, bitch I came dressed to kill
Who wanna go first? I had them pushing daffodils
I’m high as hell, I only took a half of pill
I’m on some dumb shit

By the way, what he say?
He can tell I ain’t missing no meals
Come through and fuck ‘em in my automobile
Let him eat it with his grills,
He keep telling me to chill
He keep telling me it’s real, that he love my sex appeal
Because he don’t like ‘em boney, he want something he can grab
So I pulled up in the Jag, and i hit ‘em with the jab like…
Dun-d-d-dun-dun-d-d-dun-dun

My Anaconda don’t…
My Anaconda don’t…
My Anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun

Oh my gosh, look at her butt
Oh my gosh, look at her butt
Oh my gosh, look at her butt
Look at her butt (look at her butt)

This dude named Michael used to ride motorcycles
Dick bigger than a tower, I ain’t talking about Eiffel’s
Real country ass nigga, let me play with his rifle
Pussy put his ass to sleep, now he calling me NyQuil
Now that bang bang bang,
I let him hit it ’cause he slang Cocaine
He toss my salad like his name Romaine
And when we done, I make him buy me Balmain
I’m on some dumb shit

By the way, what he say?
He can tell I ain’t missing no meals
Come through and fuck ‘em in my automobile
Let him eat it with his grills,
He keep telling me to chill
He keep telling me it’s real, that he love my sex appeal
Because he don’t like ‘em boney, he want something he can grab
So I pulled up in the Jag, Mayweather with the jab like…
Dun-d-d-dun-dun-d-d-dun-dun

My Anaconda don’t…
My Anaconda don’t…
My Anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun

Oh my gosh, look at her butt
Oh my gosh, look at her butt
Oh my gosh, look at her butt
Look at her butt (look at her butt)

Little in the middle but she got much back
Little in the middle but she got much back
Little in the middle but she got much back
Oh my God (look at her butt)

My Anaconda don’t…
My Anaconda don’t…
My Anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun

(Don’t don’t don’t) My Anaconda don’t…
(Don’t don’t don’t) Don’t want none unless you got buns hun

Oh my gosh, look at her butt
Oh my gosh, look at her butt
Oh my gosh, look at her butt

Yeah, he love this fat ass
Yeah! This one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club
I said, “Where my fat ass big bitches in the club?”
Fuck those skinny bitches,
Fuck those skinny bitches in the club
I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the motherfucking club, fuck you if you skinny bitches. What? Yeah!

Yeah. I got a big fat ass. Come on!

The Guilt

So here I am lying in bed with tonsillitis, not in school. I should feel bad, tonsillitis is ravishing our school and I went in yesterday. Now more people are going to get it. As well, the tail of hurricane Gonzalo is blowing a gale. I hardly slept at all last night and the dog lying beside me is terrified of the noise.

But, I don’t like people in my school, I don’t think my umbrella would hold up against the wind and who would comfort the dog?. Oh well, maybe staying in bed is the best option.

Mi Rutina Diaria

So my daily routine recently has been pretty awful:

  • I wake up at 7am
  • I don’t get out of bed until 7.30, I then have half an hour to get dressed, eat breakfast, do medication and brush my teeth
  • I leave the house at 8
  • I come home at 4pm
  • I sit around for an hour
  • I pointlessly browse the internet for an hour
  • I then sleep until 8pm
  • I quickly eat an unhealthy dinner after my two hour nap
  • After, I do homework until 10pm
  • I go to bed at 11pm
  • I stare at an electronic device for a few hours

If you wonder why I haven’t been posting recently, my routine is the reason.

Clearly I need to do something about it. It’s kind of sad that I need to tell lies about my routine for my Spanish homework. Maybe if I cut my internet time and use the rest of my time constructively I’ll have more time for sleeping, reading and blogging.
