Second post in a couple of days, I guess I am back.

Today I went to see The Lion King in 3D with [livejournal.com profile] harpisan. Damn, I love that movie so much. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the 3D stuff, we went in spite of it not for it. Which gives us hope that the 3D version of Finding Nemo that is being released next year will also be awesome.

Despite having seen the movie many, many times, I still manage to forget how fricking adorable baby Simba is. Also noticed lines that I never have - the pun on 'lion around' made us lose it. How have I never noticed that one?! also new injoke things made me giggle madly at slimy-yet-satisfying, don't ask
Oh, and Scar is the sassiest, most sarcastic villain ever and I have never appreciated that as much as I did today. Heh.

Then, it was a mad run back to my teacher's house to get forms signed (oh yeah my day started off by me realising I'd misread times and so everything was pushed an hour and a half later oops), and then home to try and accomplish far too much in the space of 3 hours. I got most of what I needed to done, I just ran out of time to practice. Oops.
That reminds me I still need to sing through my pieces to time them.

Then, it was onto the last dress rehearsal for the production of Bye Bye Birdie I'm playing for at the moment. It hit me last night, during the run, that this musical is quite literally about fangirls. Set in the 50s. Some things really don't change and it amuses me far more than it probably should. The music is so much fun to play. SO MUCH FUN. And most is not too difficult, except for the bows (which I basically rewrote a part because I physically could not play it at tempo, and my brain was refusing to process reading every second note). Also the band people are awesome. One reminds me so much of a friend from uni, it's ridiculous. a slightly more straight-passing version of him anyway

And now it's nearly 11:30, and I wish I could just crash in bed but alas I still have things I need to do. Bugger.
Night all!

Semester 1: complete!
Well, classes anyway. It's enough for me.

Proper update! )

Phew! I think that's all the real life updating I wanted to do. Now, there are a couple of things I want to share.

Random ridiculousness brought to you by myself, my friends and my mother )
 
The beauty of words )

I think that's more than enough from me, now. I'd better go pack!

 Let's see if I can actually make this a quick post for once - I have to get back to work.

I've had a pretty good couple of days, actually - despite the studying. Friday was my usual day at uni, with one exception of a longer music lecture to make up for the ones that got cancelled. I had to skip Indo for it, but it's alright because I have an assignment on the topic covered so I did need to go. Work was pretty uneventful (unlike last week thank goodness), and then I pretty much just wasted my night. I did a little study, but not terribly much.

Yesterday morning it was the teaching job, and I know my life's hectic when I think 'oh I only have to leave at 8am, that's not too early' ...
I'm always a bit 'meh' about actually going to work on Saturdays, but I'm so happy I finally have a job where my mood improves once I'm there. Teaching is so much fun! =D

I decided sometime during my shift to go visit snuggle_monster, just because I could. We ended up chatting for about an hour, about everything and nothing (like usual) which was good. I don't see her nearly as often at uni as I'd like.
Including about exchanges and going overseas in general. All of this got me thinking about how much can change in a year. The Jezabels gig we went to on Wednesday night was almost exactly a year to the date of the Newton Faulkner gig, which was the first time we hung out properly. I also ended up spilling some very personal experiences of mine that night - being ridiculously open even for me. Thinking back now, that was an insane reaction to my gut instinct that we were going to become great friends. Obviously I just knew, but I really did have no idea just how close we'd get.
So much about myself, my friendships and my life has changed, mostly for the better. It was one of those moments where everything was just clear, and I was perfectly happy despite the stress of uni work, and reminded me that even if I don't get my way, there is always something better than can happen.

Once I'd gone out to my car to head home (reluctantly) so I could study, while I was choosing music, she appeared again. Scared the crap out of me, but then she just says 'I wanted another hug - and to tell you that I may not say it enough but I love you.' That completely made my afternoon.

The drive home took forever, what with roadworks and the rain, but I was listening to Newton Faulkner and an hour of that can make me ready to face anything. Unfortunately, when I got home my brain was so not with my work. My tweets from last night/this morning will give you an idea of my success rate.
Although, now, I have 900ish words of this English essay – which is pretty close. It’s only a rough draft, but it’s better than what I had!

The rest of today was awesome. I went to the Disney exhibition with harpisan, and it was incredible. So many pretty drawings, all the story-boarding was amazing. Just, wow. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
We also just got to hang out and talk for the first time in far too long. I am a happy Lauren right now.
I then ended up buying the soundtrack to ‘The Princess and the Frog’ because looking at all the stuff for it and just really wanted the music. So I thought, why the hell not? Love the music in that movie, it’s just fun. Listening now, in fact.

I got home just in time to discover that I’d completely forgotten about my Grandma’s birthday dinner. So that kind of threw my plans of finsihing that draft… I came home early though.
I love my family. We’re loud, and insane, but I love it. I ended up talking about Glee with my older, tough-guy cousin about Glee. For half an hour. He downloads it as the episodes come out – and is not ashamed to like it. Totally made my night.

On that note, I’d really better get going on these assignments. I will either be posting a lot this week (as procrastination) or not at all. We’ll see. For now, good night!

 Man, Darren Criss singing Baby One More Time is just as epic as I thought it would be. I'm grinning like an idiot here... NOSTALGIAAAAA
XD
that album may or may not have been the first cd I ever bought

*goes back to writing notes*

Warning: This post is full of flail. Really random flail. )

Anyway, I've recovered from the panic of my last post. I ended up skipping the Indo class on Friday morning, just because I couldn't face speaking in front of people. I was so tired, so run down, I hadn't done the preparation. You know it's bad when skipping a class makes me feel better.
I've now done most of the things on that list, and made a conscious decision not to do others.
Let me see, what else has been going on...

My shift at work on Friday was the first one with my new boss. It was ... interesting. I'll go with interesting. It wasn't great, but I'm hoping we'll all settle in soon. Fingers crossed some of the more pointless procedures get dumped quickly.

Saturday I taught during the day, as always, and it was the first shift I've been properly awake for in a little while. Which makes it so much more fun. It took me an hour and a half to finally get home, running errands that I was meant to get done on Thursday but the universe wasn't having any of that. 
I then proceeded to stay home, pretty tired, and study/stalk people's tumblrs and then eventually chat to sine_animo.
My brother had a fair few of his friends around for a barbeque for his 18th birthday, and at one point I paused my music and just started laughing to myself. He got some really good new speakers as a present from someone, and so the music was blasting. Normal 18th, right? Wrong. The music blasting was Glee. SO MUCH APPROVAL. I have a feeling it was his gf who hijacked the music, BUT it was from his ipod. So. *laughs*

Today, I woke up at 9am, felt pretty awake and was actually going to get up (insane considering I was up until 2am last night) but then managed to fall asleep until 11am, got woken by a phone call from work and so forcing myself to wake up that fast made me feel so disoriented. Then ended up having a headache and actually feeling really shaky and just plain ill. Thankfully that didn't last too long.

This afternoon has been pretty productive, apart from practice being an utter fail. This week's been pretty bad - hoping to get some good practice done tomorrow and Tuesday before my lesson on Wednesday.

That's right, there's more. )

   I've tried to post a few times over the last couple of days, but they didn't seem to flow very well so I kept giving up. I hope this one is better!

Uni life is amazing sometimes )

SPAM SPAM SPAM )

I have two more videos for you now. I am utterly addicted to this song. Their voices blend so well together, and I'm really starting to get into Charlene Kaye's music. To give you an idea, I had this song on repeat basically all of yesterday. Which is kind of huge for me...

Lastly, this is a song I adore by Sara Bareilles. She's just released this video for it, and it's so cute. I love that it's so many random people, and that Josh Groban and Ben Folds are in it. WIN WIN WIN!


On that note, I am going to collapse into bed. I made this post twice, because lj is full of fail sometimes.

 So, it's now Tuesday. I have had two consecutive sleep ins and as such feeling much more energetic now. I just have to motivate myself to get this list of things done today. It's about 14 items long... Help meeee XD

Update on a few crazily awesome days )

I think thats a proper update. Now, meme!

Four Things )

On that note, I am off to get some of this list done. Want to see it? No? Too bad, list is below  =P
- pack up the stray bags in my room
- bag up clothes to get rid of

 I've had an insane couple of days since I last posted. On Thursday I went into the city to see pebblegosling before she heads off to the beach for a while, spent about an hour at home before going to meet another friend who I haven't seen in a while, another half hour at home and then heading off to the show. Not sure if I've mentioned this specifically amongst all the excitement of actually playing in it, but it takes me an hour one way to drive there. It's kind of exhausting.

Yesterday I went to the movies to see Tangled with harpisan. Much-needed silliness ensued. After the movie we got coffees and tried to escape the heat for a while, and then headed back to her place so I could 'help' her clean out her wardrobe. Not sure I helped very much - but I did end up with a gorgeous coat that she was getting rid of, as well as a cute red skirt and 2 cardis.

Tangled! )

So here's some more of the meme for you. This part is only difficult because there aren't enough spots for all of the people I would list if I could.

Five Things )

Alright so now I probably won't be able to post until at least Monday. Today and tomorrow promise to be utterly insane. There are two shows today, with dinner with the orchestra between them. As well as snuggle_monster coming to the show tonight, and possibly meeting me a bit early to chat for a while. I've promised myself I won't pike out of drinks tonight - I have fun when I do but most of the time I'm so fixated on getting home that I can't be bothered. Before I go I'm going to try and pack away the masses of clothes strewn across my room (actually, I need to do a clean out myself). Tomorrow is closing night ... afternoon. So it's bump out, pack up, not that I'm sure exactly what we orchestra people have to do, and then an after party. I am going to crash so badly after that!
But yes, off to clean. Bye!

Occasionally I have moments when I realise that my life could be construed as pathetic. And hey, it kinda is. Take today, for example. I overslept because I had stayed up until 3am for little to no reason, went to work, came home, crashed and slept for 3 hours, woke up, ate random food that I could find in my house, watched 'Easy A' (which was amusing, btw), ate the pizza that my mum made (it had pumpkin and capsicum and actual mozzarella cheese - YUM) and am now reading Glee fanfiction. *laughs wryly* completely pathetic. My brain also keeps going off on very interesting tangents, but no one else really needs to know about that.

So yes. That's my Saturday. I might be going to a Disney concert tomorrow afternoon, put on by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra which will be awesome - except that I have no one to go with and it's $50 that will vanish from my bank account. Harpisan, why must you have chosen this weekend to go camping? =P

One thing I have done this week that was awesome (and reflects on the status of my bank account) is that I went shopping, mostly for myself, for the first time in ages and ages. I spent a bit over $100 on me, as well as a few presents. I've finally started Christmas shopping, yay! ... I can never believe how much it spirals out of control, even when I say 'strictly immediate family and close friends'. Guess that just reflects on how many amazing friends I have.
Turns out I may actually be working Christmas Day (with my father... 'family affair' LOL) so at least the cash will be coming in after that.

But anyway, back to my shopping spree. I was fairly impressed with my haul, for the amount of money I spent.
2 pairs of black pants, 2 pairs of shorts, 2 cute skirts, purple tights, a cream lace dress (have wanted one for a while wheee), jeans (for $10... Superdry ones!!) and not forgetting my cardi I bought last week =) Pretty good huh! I love dfo.

OOH new Big Bang Theory. That's my cue to stop rambling now, methinks.
Hope your Saturday night is more exciting than mine... or not, depending on how easily you're entertained ;)

I'm currently at the point where I have so much to say that none of it is forming complete sentences in my head. It's weird.
So, instead of trying to write about my (brilliant) first week of holidays, I am going to do a spam of the random stuff that's in my head at the moment - or more specifically, what has entertained me the past week. So you may just get the idea anyway ;)


Warning: many pictures and videos lie within )

I am spellbound. This is why I love music. This.


snuggle_monster recommended I buy her cd, and her voice is a bit strange and takes a little getting used to. A mix between Lisa Miller (who I have decided to go see on Saturday woo!) and Julia Stone. New music makes me happy. So happy.

I am officially ON HOLIDAYS! I'm so excited, 3 months of total freedom. Amazing. It hasn't quite hit me yet though, I keep going 'oh I should be... wait....' My Indonesian exam went really well, there was nothing major I couldn't do. Plus I got to write about WASHINGTON. So I was very happy. I then went to the uni bar to hang out for the last time as a class, kind of weird to think we'll be split up next year because some of them are doing units overseas and will be ahead etc etc. 

Then snuggle_monster came over and we went cd/dvd shopping at this sale, and then I introduced her to the wonders of Mulan and Pocahontas (which as a 19-year-old Disney nut she inexplicably hadn't seen). We decided that I am/was Nakoma, and she was Meeko in Pocahontas. Yes, the raccoon. Tehehehe. Oh and then talking until it was light about anything and everything. Perfect end to the year I say.
To snuggle_monster: *pokes* YOU'RE TOO CUTE. 

I had a minor freak-out when someone said 'Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and all that' on their way out of the bar.... My brain was all 'NOOO WAYYYY' Bwahahah. That had not even crossed my mind.

Random note: Kurt/Blaine in Glee are too adorable for me to handle. The End.

'Kings don't need advice from little hornbills for a start'
*hums*
Love that song and movie so so so much. Twas also amazing watching it with someone who had only recently found out that Zazu was voiced by Rowan Atkinson. Tehehe.

Just a little *cough* about my week and weekend )

I'm feeling a little better now.

Ahh I do love movie nights - and last night was no exception. Awesome friends (incidentally the two that have lj) some damn good movies, and a decent amount of food make for loads of fun. So, anyway, the 'reason' (like we actually need one) for this get-together was Valentine's Day. Strange? No way. We figured that we're all single, and would be bored, and thought that chick flicks and musicals and Disney was a brilliant plan. And let's not forget aww-ing at the awkward cuteness of Gordo from Lizzie McGuire. He's so adorable!
We're so cool.

Aladdin: Do I even need to say anything? It's so awesome. Robin Williams = sheer genius. And Iago. XD

Spirited Away: Very interesting. Kind of trippy at points, but I did enjoy it. Once I got my head around it, of course.

Rent: A musical that I desperately want to see in the theatre. I do love the music in it, naturally, but there is also just something about the film itself. I always get shivers down my spine at certain moments - like during the support group scenes. It makes me step back and remember what is really important to me. I will always love movies/musicals/music that does that.


Right now I'm procrastinating practicing, and researching laptops. I've decided that this one's nearly had it's run. Especially now that pebblegosling has pointed out how incredibly tiny my hard drive is... I'm also hopeful that I can save enough money fairly quickly - considering how much I saved last year =)

I'll be off now, to try to get some practice done before my teacher assignment lesson tomorrow - and possibly even do some Indonesian study before my placement test.
Bye!

So, History and Musicianship are both over. Considering how flat out I've been studying for those two exams I should be feeling happier than I am. Damn these stupid moods of mine. >.<
As it happens, I have been so bored tonight - how I manage to find a million things to distract me when I need to work, and never when I'm allowed to be relaxing, I will never understand. I've decided to post this story I wrote for an English SAC in Year 11, with a little tweaking it's not too bad. I'd like some feedback about the structure though, I still like my idea but I'm not sure if it's a little too disjointed.



Ariel. What's in a name? What's in my name? Ariel. People hear it and think Disney. Mermaid. Bright hair, bright personality, bright fish friends. Bright bright bright. Obsessed with us. Humans. "I bet it's fun, up in the sun" The grass is always greener. Or the sea is bluer. Either one. She's in love with the Prince. Of course it all works out neatly. Fairytales always do. Fairytales always do. So people expect me to lead on. A fairytale, not a life. Life has no happily ever after. There is no such thing. Disney idealises. What we want to see. Not the reality.

No-one knows the real story. The folk tale; the original. I read it by accident. So different. The mermaird had no name. No mention of fiery red hair. Definitely no talking fish. I hadn't realised. She wants to be human. But she pays and pays and pays. She walks on knives. She even dances. It nearly kills her. But her love helps. Her love for him is so strong. He doesn't know. He never finds out. His love is elsewhere. He has a happily ever after. With someone else. She gets nothing. Less than nothing. She simply disappears. Turns into sea foam. He never even knew she existed. Let alone her love. And then she didn't exist at all.

Ariel. Uncommon name. I would say not difficult to pronounce. Apparently so. Ariel! Aerial! I am NOT a TV antenna. Really. Ah-ree-el. Originates from Hebrew. "Lioness of God" Right. That I am not. I mean, lioness. Strong, powerful, leader. I don't feel like any of those. How does my name mean me? Does it even matter? Who knows. Honestly. Would being a Kate or a Jane have changed me? Changed my personality? I wouldn't get the fish jokes. Other than that, would there be anything different? Perhaps. Perhaps not.

It didn't come from the folk tale. My name I mean. She had no name. 'the mermaid'. Notice there's not 'little'. She wasn't. She was strong. Brave. Filled with love. Unrequited love. She had the strength not to kill. To kill him meant to go back. To live. To start over. Her one chance. She couldn't take it. She couldn't kill to make herself happy. Instead, she dissolves. Preserves her love's happiness. At the total cost of her. Her life vanquished. Immeasurable strength. Sacrifice.

There is a statue. Carved in stone. The mermaid. Sitting on a rock, head down, hands clasped. Interesting to note her tail. Legs still underneath. Torn. Caught between her two worlds. Mermaid or human. Does she truly belong to either? Or has she been split in two. Like me. Broken up. Divided between my life, and others' expectations. They expect a fairytale; complete with happy ending. I don't. I just want to be happy most of the time. Big difference. I can't make them happy. Only me. Different to folk tale. May be selfish. I can't sacrifice myself. My own rights, ideas, values. But what else can I do? Give me a better option, I'll take it. There is none. I'm not like either mermaid. I'm just, well, me. Ariel.


I wish I could find my creative piece from Year 12. I have a feeling I shredded it though.
And now I'm off to bed - here's hoping a good night's sleep, good Indonesian food and great company tomorrow will drive this silly bleh mood away.

And if I had one chance to freeze time
And stand still and soak in everything,
I'd choose right now.
And if I had one night with sunshine to break through and show you everything,
I'd choose right now,
Before the fears that I once had start coming back again


I'll give you one guess as to who that song is by

This pretty much described the mood I was in yesterday. Such a good, relaxing day - just what I needed after the stress/emotion/work etc etc of the past few weeks. Helps that I was accompanied by some truly awesome people. Singing songs from musicals at the top of our lungs, wandering all over the city, drinking tea, spilling juice, finding random stuffed horse pillows, guys t-shirts (for the girls no less), and just mucking around in general. *grins* Heck, even power-walking from one end of the city to the other wasn't too draining.

I was actually going to write about '500 Days of Summer' in this post, but [livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling beat me to it. In a much more eloquent fashion I might add. I loved the movie, enough to see it twice. I do want the soundtrack, and to buy it on dvd when it comes out. Let's hope I have the money for it then =P

Today, I'm back to reality. You know, exam preparation, the fact that I'm performing tomorrow and have barely practiced all week (hello early morning tomorrow to try to do some last minute prep), the fact that I made a promise to myself last night that I am going to get myself fit. But most of all the fact I can hardly walk because I've been on a walk both last night and this morning. I will force myself tomorrow, although I know it will be *hell*. My arm is also aching, I just have to remind myself it is so I can go on this trip. *grimaces* I'm just a walking limping bundle of muscles right now =P
I'll live.


And here I am again, I'll leave you all with the Disney fan fiction(s) I wrote - using songs as prompts (bah cbf finding the actual instructions for this)

Teddy Geiger – Night Air
Belle had to run. It wasn’t like her, being a bookworm and all, but she just needed to be outside, to feel the chill of the night against her face. Most of all she needed to think. Hard. Clear the confusion in her head. ‘Why him? There is nothing logical about it. But the pull is there.’ She wanted so much to simply run away. What was holding her back? There was nothing for it but to return.

 Avenue Q – Purpose
          I’m going to set out – find what I was supposed to be! Surely, being a fish sidekick isn’t all I’m cracked up to be. I seem to get a lot of attention, for a little blue and yellow coward of a fish. Maybe I could swim near sharks. Or become a translator for humans and mermaids. Or I could just go back to Ariel. *sigh* Maybe that’s all I’m good for, after all.

         

Taylor Swift – Our Song

How can I sing without words?
How can I make him see?
How will he know that he’s the one for me?

She doesn’t see
Just how beautiful she is
Even though she doesn’t speak
There’s something about this pond that’s telling me
There’s just one thing I have to do

I’ll just kiss her. That’ll be our song.

 Maroon 5 – Harder to Breathe
          As she lay in his arms, Cinderella wondered just how she could have fallen for this man. For that is all he is. For all his finery, his servants, his castle, his protection, he is still simply a man. Dazzling her with his beauty. ‘Happily ever after’ all the women say while sighing. Maybe it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Perhaps she just longed for the adventure. The pumpkin. The mice. The glass slipper. ‘Please’ she begs silently. ‘Show this naïve servant girl that there is still someone inside worth my love.’

 
Britney Spears – Deep in my Heart
          True love’s first kiss. So unlike what I dreamt of for 100 years. Trust me, that’s a long time to wonder. For one thing, it was sudden. I had no idea who this, this, prince was. And he waltzes in and tells me that I’m his true love. Apparently, in these woods one kiss equals marriage. Pfft. So what. I can decide who I want to be with. Then you tell me that you’ve watched me for a while, trying to pluck up the courage to wake me up. Fearing this reaction. Well, I guess that counts for something. But now that I’m awake, give me some time to get to know you. It seems you’re ahead of me in that respect.

 Matchbox 20 – Bent
          It’s enough to drive anyone mad. Seriously, living in a house with 6 other dwarves is no picnic. Especially ones that sneeze, are fiendishly bouncy, fall asleep at the most inopportune times, blush at the drop of a hat, are bossy and just walk around in a daze all the time! Not to mention with no cooking skills. Hmmph! It’s the very definition of dysfunctional. Then *she* came. I don’t know what came over me. It was too much. I didn’t know myself after a while. I think I need a new name.

 McFly – Five Colours in Her Hair
          ‘Nala! Hurry up! What on earth are you doing?’ Simba is running in circles, impatiently waiting for her to emerge from their cave. ‘Come on!’
‘I’m coming, I’m coming. Settle down.’ As Nala ran out, Simba took one look at her and jumped a mile into the air. ‘What?’ Nala demanded.
‘Uhh… Have you been down to the waterhole today?’
‘No. Is there something wrong with how I look?’
‘It’s just, you look like’ *pause* ‘Zazu’.

Hope they aren't too boring/poorly written.

The other day, I went to a book shop with a friend. We discovered it had a sliding ladder so you could get to the top shelves. I asked my friend "Is it sad that I immediately think of Beauty and the Beast?" She responded with "I think of Ollivander's." She wins. MLIA.
.... That actually happened... I love us.


Silliness aside, I've been thinking about a few of my friendships. In particular the differences between 'old' and 'new' ones.
Let me go back a while. About 18 months ago one of my best friends, E, (I had two at that point) left my church, without giving me any warning that her family would do so. I was pretty cut up about that, because of the lack of warning. Looking back, I realise how hard it must have been for her as well (hindsight is a wonderful thing). Anyway, that friendship changed when she left. We swore it wouldn't, but I knew better. We were no longer as close - both in that we never saw each other, and I guess I was too hurt to make much of an effort.
Why am I talking about all this? Because nearly two weeks ago I got a phone call that I couldn't handle. My brain just shut down, and I had no idea what to do or say or anything. And you know the first thing I did? I text E. I didn't say much. Just asked her to pray. At that point, I couldn't even do that. Somewhere, in the back of my mind, I knew I could still rely on her. I'm glad that's still true, and that some things don't change.

On the other end of the spectrum, I'm slowly realising that I make close friends pretty quickly. I might be shy when you first meet me, but that can change fairly fast. Take C, for instance. We were *both* pretty quiet and nervous in orientation - but we soon discovered a mutual love for all things Disney, and things kind of took off from there. I'd probably say she's one of my closest friends right at this moment. It's pretty damn awesome! The fact that I actually want (in the wishful thinking part of my brain) to move out of home and rent a place with her should tell you something about that friendship.


On another note, I just realised something pretty scary.
I have 5 (teaching) weeks left of this semester. Shortly afterwards, exams start. This is freaking me out for a few of reasons:
I don't know what pieces I'm doing for my practical exam.
We haven't started rehearsing 2 out of 3 pieces for our ensemble exam.
I have done no study for history, apart from half-heartedly listening to some of the pieces.
I've done barely anything for musicianship.
*runs around in panicky circles*
(At least I know I'll be fine in keyboard and aural. Phew.)

Yet, I am still on here, blogging - instead of actually doing some study. Go figure.
