Just a quick post to say I'm not going to be posting anything here for the next couple of weeks because I'm going away on holiday! Yaaay. I really can't wait as I've been looking forward to this pretty much all year, and after all my exams and everything I REALLY need a break. We're going to Weymouth; I've never been before, but apparently the beaches are great. I'm not taking my laptop with me, so yeah, no posts until the beginning of next month.   
It is SO HOT today. I'm just sitting here in my room typing this and I can literally feel myself sweating! It's like 28 degrees; if you're from somewhere where it's really hot you're probably wondering what the big deal is but I'm really not used to this heat and I feel like I'm DYING. And I had ballet earlier today. It was... it was not fun. I thought I was going to melt like an ice lolly. When I got home I just sprawled out on the sofa, sweating and panting slightly. Urgh. I don…

Growing up

Well, it's been really, really warm here in London lately, and sunny, which is like... amazing! On Wednesday I went to a home-ed picnic, which was basically something organised by the council for families who homeschool to get together at a local park. It was mostly little kids who went there though, so I didn't get much of a chance to talk to anyone, though I did hang out a bit with a twelve-year-old boy. We did a couple of races. I felt like a kid again, to be honest - I'd forgotten what it was like to have someone ask you "hey do you wanna race" and to answer "sure" before streaking out over an open field in wild abandon... I've missed it. I miss being a kid, everything was so much simpler back then! I don't want to grow up... growing up sucks.

Seriously, sometimes I can't believe I'm already fifteen. I'm like... how did that happen?? When exactly did I grow up that much? I don't feel that old! I'm still a kid! I still liv…

Answering Lucky Wing's List Thing

So I stalk follow a bunch of Poptropica fan blogs (if you don't know what the heck I'm on about check out this post) and on one of them, a Poptropica blogger posted a list of questions about the game. And I thought it would be fun to try and answer some of them. So that's what I'm going to be doing today.

(If you've never heard of Poptropica before in your life then sorry because you're not gonna understand a thing. Just sayin'.)

Let's go!

Lucky Wing's List Thing

What was the thought process behind no necks on Poptropicans? Seriously, where did they come up with that?!

You know, I've always wondered that! How are they alive if they don't have necks?? Maybe the reason they have no necks is so their heads sort of pop up and down... you know, Poptropica? Maybe that was the thought process? I really don't know.
What is Director D’s real name!? Is this bugging anyone else here?
The D in Director D stands for Danger. Like, 100%.

Who stole all that …

"Ghost House": A short story

It was drizzling slightly and my hair was starting to feel slightly damp as I stood there by the gate that led to the house’s front garden.

It was an ordinary house; at least, anyone else would see it that way. A two-bedroomed end-of-terrace made of red bricks, with grimy windows and an unkempt front garden. The sort of house nobody looked twice at. But for me, it was the most important building in existence.

It was my home.

At least, it had been my home. This was the place where I had lived while I was growing up, while I was studying, still figuring out what I wanted from life. This was my childhood home.

Ten years. It had been ten years since I’d last laid eyes on this building. Ten years since I’d packed my bags and moved to a different house, a different city, a different life. After my parents’ deaths I couldn’t bear to live here any longer… in short, I’d run away; mistakenly believing that by running I could somehow leave my grief behind, too.

But I’d decided that, after a dec…

Exam day: I got soaked on the way there but the exam went quite well

I. Have. Survived.

I have survived my first English exam.

*collapses onto the floor and dies*

Joking, though I am absolutely EXHAUSTED. I've been studying so much over the past few days, revising and everything, and today I had to wake up pretty early to get to the exam centre by nine a.m. I just want to sleeeeep but I have karate later, so I can't.

The bus journey to the school was complete agony. There was SO MUCH TRAFFIC. We were moving at an exhausted snail's pace. And then we had to get off that bus and onto another and it was right behind us when we got off the first bus, but there were people in the way so we missed it, so we had to run to the next stop to catch it, but it overtook us and we thought we weren't going to get it but we ran really fast and managed to catch it. Oh, and did I mention it was super-windy and bucketing it down with rain? So basically my mum and I were just running through a rainstorm, we got absolutely soaked through. It was actually rea…

Seven reasons why my cat and I are like sisters

1. I have to play with her when I'd rather be doing something else.

2. She disturbs me when I'm trying to study or read.

3. She wakes me up in the middle of the night because she wants to play.

4. We fight. I'm not kidding we actually fight sometimes. Usually it's when I have to brush her and she doesn't want me to.

5. Sometimes I tease her and she deliberately ignores me for a few hours.

6. She always gets her way. I'm serious. Every time.

7. Even though she can be really annoying I absolutely love her to bits. And, you know, I don't know what she thinks but I think she loves me back... kinda?
