First Birthday!

I made it! Being Weirdly Awesome was started this  day 1 year ago. I remember kneeling on my knees in front of the computer trying to create a header which was too big because I didn’t understand pixels *cringe*. Oh, I’ve come a long way in terms of writing and technical knowledge.

Face it, that first post was cheesy – remember this? My first ever post. Good times, good times. I also just realised that I edited it back in August because I was so embarrassed but if anyone has any memories I’d love to know.

4100 views and 260 posts later, I feel like I have settled into the blogging community and have some great friends. It really doesn’t feel like it’s been a whole year! I’m assuming that I count as an established blogger now.

If you’d like to give me a birthday present, which is what you’re meant to do, why don’t you give me a shout out in your next post OR do something good this Lent and donate to Trócaire.

Inside My Crazy Mind…

I had managed to convince myself that today was the 6th of April, Being Weirdly Awesome’s first birthday, but it’s actually the 5th so you’ll have to wait for that post :?

As well, it’s only one week until we go to Barcelona! This time next week I will probably be disembarking our flight to London before the actual flight to Barcelona. I’m so excited!!! Last night I battled to get the suitcase out of the attics but that was only half the fight. It took the best part of an hour to get everything back in and slam the door shut. But at least I have my suitcase. It is now lying on my bedroom floor waiting to be packed with dresses, leggings, t shirts and maxi skirts.

I don’t want to give away too much information because of all you weird stalkers out there but a detailed post will follow after the trip. Promise.

Finally, my plans for today involve taking #rawrLove photos. Click on the link to find out more because I’m not very good at explaining things.

SONG OF THE WEEK Enrique Iglesias I’m A Freak Video & Lyrics

So, yes this is a day late but I’m back on track now. This week’s song of the week is I’m A Freak by Spanish pop star, Enrique Iglesias (thinking of Spanish people, just 7 days until Spain!).  We haven’t heard from Enrique in a while but he’s back with this dance track!

Lyrics:
Enrique Iglesias
Pitbull
Mr. Worldwide
Let’s go!

I tried to let it go,
But I’m addicted to your chemicals
I got a taste, I want an overdose
I love the way she gets so physical
Fucks like an animal

Day and night I just imagine how you put your love on me
Lights off, lights on
Ready for some action
Baby, come and give it to me

‘Cause I’m a freak
The way you pop it and drop it
All over me
No, I don’t want you to stop it
Yeah, I’m a freak
Baby, I can’t lie
When you move like that
I’ve got a one track mind,

‘Cause I’m a freak
Yeah, I’m a freak
‘Cause I’m a freak
Yeah, I’m a freak

Yeah, baby there you go (let’s go)
Stealing my heart just like a criminal
No turning back, this time is critical
Ya’ move your body like a miracle
Baby, here we go

Day and night I just imagine how you put your love on me
Lights off, lights on
Ready for some action
Baby, come and give it to me

‘Cause I’m a freak
The way you pop it and drop it
All over me
No, I don’t want you to stop it
Yeah, I’m a freak
Baby, I can’t lie
When you move like that
I’ve got one track mind

‘Cause I’m a freak
Yeah, I’m a freak
‘Cause I’m a freak
Yeah, I’m a freak

[Pitbull:]
Baby you pop it and lock it
Drop it, I watch it for sure
Baby you roll it and rock it
Move it, I use it, let’s go
You know I lick it and do the things that’ll make you explode
You don’t believe me, mami, just let-let-let-let me go low
Because I’m a freak-freak-freak-freak-freak-freak-freak-freak,
Yea’ that’s you know
Now can I get a beat-beat-beat-beat-beat-beat,
Baby back it up nice and slow
I just wanna skeet-skeet-skeet-skeet-skeet-skeet-skeet-skeet,
Right out and go
I came, I saw, I conquered, off to the next, let’s go

Yeah I’m a freak
The way you pop it and drop it
All over me
No, I don’t want you to stop it
Yeah, I’m a freak
Baby, I can’t lie
When you move like that
I’ve got a one track mind

‘Cause I’m a freak
Yeah, I’m a freak
‘Cause I’m a freak
Yeah, I’m a freak

It’s The Cataracs

From the hotel room to the DJ booth
On the bathroom sink, yes, I’m just a freak
And when the sun goes down, gotta let it out
Baby don’t blame me,
I’m-I’m just a freak!

Daily Writing Prompt: Five A Day

You’ve been exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?

1. Chocolate. I’m addicted to chocolate. I couldn’t survive without it. NEXT!

2. Bread. Preferably baguette or any other crusty bread, not the sliced stuff. Jam and butter would be nice too…

3. Oranges. Well I suppose I better include at least one fruit if I’m not planning on dying from severe vitamin deficiency. But not just any oranges, tangerines. Yes, I know they’re not really oranges but in my eyes they’re just smaller, nicer versions of oranges.

4. Chicken. Seeing as I’m going for a balanced diet, I may as well include some meat. The bread and chicken would make a good sandwich.

5. Rice. Rice is quite filling and would be the basis of a good meal.

It’s Been Too Long..

6 days since I last posted to be precise. Oh, I just don’t know where the week has gone!

Here’s a quick run down of what I’ve been up to this week:

  • School
  • I joined my church’s choir, I sing for the first time tomorrow at mass
  • I bought my mum a puzzle book, soap and an Easter egg for Mothers’ Day UK tomorrow
  • Sleeping
  • Pointlessly looking at stuff on the internet

Urmmm, yeah, that’s pretty much it.

I know I didn’t do Song of The Week (I’ll post I’m A Freak by Enrique Iglesias next week if I’m up to it) but I think I just need a wee break from blogging. The fluoxetine I’ve been taking for my depression has been making me feel exhausted at the best of times so there have been a lot of afternoon naps and early nights, yeah, I’m having a bad case of the dreaded Blogging Blues. The rest of my time has been taken up with homework, and I haven’t even started my GCSE’s yet!

At the moment it is less than 14 days until I go to Spain! This time in two weeks I’ll already be in Barcelona! I’m so excited and today picked up some ne clothes so I don’t look a mess wearing last summer’s too tight clothes. Even though my mum said she could feel summer in the air, to be honest I’m just not. It was lashing rain all day today and it was cold. When I was down town I felt a bit odd buying t-shirts along with tights.

I know I said I may take a little break from blogging but I’m sure by the time it comes to the Easter holidays I’ll have plenty of time and plenty to blog about! As well, my March assessments are now over so hopefully school work will be decreasing between now and the Easter Break. I’m really looking forward to the Easter break as I’ve had no real time to rest since starting on the fluoxetine which has been draining most of my energy.

Good night and God bless,

Lucy.

Blogging Is A Social Activity

Believe it or not, blogging is actually a very sociable activity. It draws people with similar interests from each corner of the world together. There are people who call bloggers “loners” and “socially awkward”, but how can we be called either when we are communicating with hundreds of people?

In fact, dare I say, bloggers are more of a social butterfly than the non bloggers. Think of all the followers, not just followers but friends, that follow us and all the bloggers that we follow. We connect on a daily basis and share our lives with each other; telling stories and sharing laughter. We support each other in hard time and share in each others happiness.

Maybe you think that it’s “sad” to sit in front of a computer/laptop/phone/iPad etc. all day, but to be honest we are entertaining each other – doing what real friends do. How could that not be sociable?

If you really want to be social, why don’t you start a blog?

 So next time that you think of a blogger as anti-social, just remember that we are most likely more popular than you.

Lucy.
