Hey stranger.

"Might be holding your hand, but I'm holding it loose. Got to talk then we choke, it's like our necks in a noose."

- Kickstarts by The Example.

I think the above sums up my current status on blogger. I'm never on, I don't read many other blogs any more, I don't post. I've just lost touch since I went away in summer.

However.. I have started a tumblr. I like it there. I can post short posts, and quotes (which I have a new obsession with now) and pictures. I like it. If you care to follow me, here is the link. http://cocacolacaliforniafreeze.tumblr.com/

I'll probably come back on here from time to time.. But still. Oh, and if you follow me on tumblr, I'll follow you back! :)

Taking the Bull By the Horns.

Today I told a boy something I should've told him three months ago. I told him that I loved him from the very first day.

He told me he's been planning to break up with me for a week.



The thing is though, that's why I said it. I knew I couldn't let this go til I told him. I knew something was up. I knew it was going to happen. I said to my best friend on the phone last night "some one's going to get dumped tomorrow". He said "No, no, usually when I break up with a girl we get closer, almost to make up for it". I told him, "Well, we'll see, won't we?".
We did.

I've come to realise, the rejection didn't hurt. I can't change his feelings. Although I don't think it was very nice of him to turn around and say "Well yeah, I've only ever sorta like you.." especially considering I let HIM pursue, not the other way around. He can't go back on that argument, I wouldn't have the balls to ask someone out. His feelings though, "are neither right nor wrong, they simply are".

Some parts of me are happy it's turned out this way, however lonely I feel right now.


On a side note, what kinda knob lets a girl go home from town on her own, late at night, the night before Hallowe'en, doesn't even bother to help her find her friends but then only texts her when he's on the way back from a club "oh sorry for blah blah blah" but not "oh did you get home okay?". He doesn't know that I did find my friends, or that I did get home okay. People sometimes.

I woke up this morning, dying of some illness, but that's all irrelevant to the post. Anyway, in the middle of the night, as I couldn't sleep I was reading John Green's book Paper Towns. And there was a paragraph in it that struck me as profound. And I haven't been able to stop thinking about it.

We're living in the future.


What we do now is in preparation for the future. I'm going to school, I'm trying to do well.. In order to go to college and to get a good job, to earn money, to buy a nice house, to raise a family there, so my children grow up well, go to college get good jobs.. And the cycle goes on.. And on.. And on..

And what happens then? It's just struck me that I need to stop doing this. I know, you can say I'm only 17. But is it not better that I've realised this now, in stead of missing out on the prime of my youth? I need to stop working, and start having more fun. Obviously one needs to do work, and I do plan on going to college, not to get a good job, but because I want to.

I won't tell my parents this, because they'll accuse me of being lazy and just not wanting to work, but school is no longer my priority. Life is.

What if I die tomorrow? I've a list of 19 things I want to do, and I'll never get to do them. I'm taking the bull by it's horns from now on. Like, obviously some of the things I want to do are going to take a while (ie. become fluent in French) so if I died tomorrow I'd never get to do that anyway.

This post is so unstructured, but that's the way it is.

Saturday, October 16, 2010

I thought I posted.. Maybe I didn't publish..

Yeah, I thought I posted a post about a week ago. Apparently I am unable to hit the orange "publish post" icon. Gah. So here I am anyway, sorry about that. I know I'm so terrible with blogging since I've come back (AND I'VE 58 FOLLOWERS. WTAF?! THANK YOU!). I will try fix this problem. Try. I've a lot of school work these days (FML). That's what you get for doing the leaving I suppose.



This song is a bit gas.. First up is English, and then it's Maths.. I could do Honours.. I should do Pass.


I saw a beggar today, who as I passed by said "Can you read this?" I turned around and read his sign, it said "Why lie? I need a drink." I laughed and gave him some change. It was a laugh anyway.

An Actual Post!

So, back at the beginning of summer, Tuesday June 8 to be exact, I posted a list of things to do during the summer. Now, let's go through this list and see what I did.

Here it is:
What I did:
2. Go to three parties (minimum).

7. Go blonde. Or any random colour.

8. Take over 500 photos.

What I didn't do:
1. Study. (minimum five hours a week)
-All the Chem.
-French irregular present tense verbs, past tense, and future tense.
-Rewrite both Biology hardbacks.
-Wuthering Heights quotes.
-Learn off Poetry.
-Revise maths.
-Learn anything to do with Irish. I will settle for ANYTHING.
-Revise music.


3. Have a movie night.

4. Host a sleepover.

5. Go to a sleepover.

6. Go to the beach. Regularly.

9. Save €100.

10. Finish my Legacy.

11. Go swimming once a week.

To be quite honest, I'm dissappointed with myself, not that I feel I wasted my summer, I didn't AT ALL. Loved almost every minute of it. But I'm annoyed I couldn't even do a simple 11 task list. They were easy too, it's not like I had something wild on it that I wouldn't have been able to do, I just didn't bother doing any of it. Oh well, I survived!

I'm back at school now, trying to get back into the swing of things. It's really hard though and not to mention the fact that my immune system is down BIGTIME now (I'm currently off school sick, honestly I've never felt this sick in my life!) and I'm constantly "suffering" from a cold at the very least. I think I've a virus right now, but then again, I'm not a doctor, so don't hold me to that one!

Sometime, in the depts of winter, I'll look back on my photos from the summer, upload them to here and talk about just how spectacular it was. :) <3

So here I am.

It's been a while Blogger, hasn't it? I'm sorry for being neglectful, I really am. It's just when I came home I was so out of touch with the world. I had little to no contact with the outside world, aside from the odd text conversation or phone call with a friend (there was no time, and.. I didn't care). I remember one night when the Bean an Tí's (woman we were staying with) daughter let us use her laptop and I got my Facebook fix.
It was quite strange being away, I wanted so badly to get away from home, away from my friends and just away from my life in general. Now I'm back. It's strange anyway.

Again, I'm sorry about the lack of posting, I'll try catch up and fill you all in!
Hope you're all doing well!
-Ailish.

home.

Thank lord I'm home.
I'll update you all at a later stage.

I just had, by far, the best (and most tiring and most eventful and most EVERYTHING) three weeks of my life. It's still good to be home.

Sunday, July 25, 2010

I'm off lads!

See you all in 21 days!
I hope you're all well when I come back and lalala.
Grand so. We're all grand? Yeah. Grand.

Slán,
á Ailish, á Chara.


I'm scared. D:

But yeah, I'll catch up with you all when I get back. I'ma gonna attempt to keep a diary for these three weeks. Oh Gosh, I'm so excited.
If you wanna hear from me, follow me on Twitter. I can use it by text, so I can't see replies or anything. But still, if you want to see my frantic "i'm fucked" messages, you can! :)
Talk to you all later!

Ailish.

Summer, so far.

Hi there! This is a super-quick photo blog of my antics for the past month and a half. I'll probably do another one once summer is over.



Caroline (hereby known as Frenchie) and I. How romantic. I'm such a fucking ginger and I don't even know it.



I just see this photo and laugh. 1) because it was a funny and happy day, and 2) because I think my expression is priceless. Hello?



This was a funny day too. And I just think this photo is pretty :D



DJ Harry Potter.. in the mix. All my make-up had managed to come off my face. What joy!



Happy Birthday Jess!



HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL! (I'm Troy) LOL@MY FACE. ;)



Deer! Baaahh! They all ran (away from us) just after this photo was taken. So we legged it. I thought I was gonna die. You wouldn't want a smack of those antlers.



Best Day Ever! :) Most fun I've had in a long while! Oh and by the way, Catzy isn't gay.. She just came as support too!



Are ya well? Cos you're lookin well.



Yeah, so I met this Roman guy at a party I went to. You know, he was wearing a toga.



Poor Tobes had a stroke :( But he's doing okay now! He's 11 years old and now walks around like a drunkard.. But he's walking and that's the main thing!


Oh and thank you so so so so so much for the 50 followers. I never thought I'd make it this far ever. What can I do to repay you all? :)

I've been tagged!

The Honesty Award
-from Eleanor Roscuro

Share one thing that nobody knows about you.
Nobody knows about me.. I uhm.. I have a twitter! (I rarely use it, but I'm trying to get back in the habit!) Follow me, would you?


What is your biggest regret in life?

Letting you go. And I can't even tell you.

What would you do with a thousand dollars?
I'd go to France/New York. Probably New York. Though, that thousand would only be a fraction of what it would cost.

If you could go back in time, would you still be with the person you are with right now?
If I went back in time, no not at all. I wouldn't go back in time though, I like it the way it is, but if I were to, this would never have happened. I must laugh at the situations I put myself in.

What do you like or dislike about my (the tagger's) blog page?

Why would someone bitch about someone they'd been tagged by.. I like however, that she was my second follower ever! And reminds me of it regularly! <3

Father Ted.

Possibly one of the greatest shows... Ever! It's just plain hilarious. Too bad Dermot Morgan died and they stopped making it. -_-
Anyway, here are some of my favourite clips, I've been watching it a lot lately, I got a lend of the boxset.

There is always time for a nice cup of tea! Sure didn't our Lord himself on the cross pause for a nice cup of tea before giving himself up for the world?



"It's not the morning"


"I wouldn't know Ted, ya big bollocks."


"FECK OFF CUP"


"How about Ted? That's a good name for a rabbit"


"I stand corrected"

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Ah right so. We're down to 9 days lads, that's single figures. And, to be quite honest, I'm fecked sure, I've nothing packed, or bought for this "holiday".
I realised, that in my last post (due to the fact that almost every comment had "where are you going?" or something along those lines, in it) that I neglected to say where I am going. And this (taken from Wikipedia) is what I have in store for me for 21 days.

Gaeltacht is the Irish language word meaning an Irish-speaking region. In Ireland, The Gaeltacht, or An Ghaeltacht, refers individually to any, or collectively to all, of the districts where the government recognizes that the Irish language is the predominant language, that is, the vernacular spoken at home. These districts were first officially recognised during the early years of the Irish Free State, after the Gaelic Revival, as part of government policy to restore the Irish language.


So basically, a bunch of teens looking to improve their Irish for the good old Leaving Cert and the Junior Cert all pop down to the Gaeltacht areas for three weeks and go to classes and céilís and what not. Sounds like great craic. Only problem is, I'm brutal at Irish. Like really really really bad! Oh well, I'm looking forward to the three weeks of freedom.
This song sums it up, exactly as I feel.
Heathers- Remember When


Oh, and also, this is the first time I've managed to work out how to post videos on my blog. Ah.

Anyway, I'm off for the moment, I'll be on later to do a birra reading of your blogs and whatnot. How're you doing? And hello? 48 followers.. Thanks you guys *blushes* you've no idea how grateful I am!



I have to think of some sort of celebration for the 50th follower.. IF there is one! Any ideas?

Fourty FIVE *dances* and, btw, I'm sorry!

After my last post, I'll bet most of you are thinking, "oh shit.. This is going to be long". But no, we're grand sure. This is a oh my god, 45 followers post. And I know I say this with every single one, but I really never expected to get this amount. This is five away from half way to one hundred. And that is a LOT. In my books anyway.

I also want to apologise for that last post. I was ever-so-slightly hormonal (as if you couldn't tell) and felt like ranting my heart out to people who just weren't there.. And subsequently crying my eyes out later on! But thanks for all your comments, and I spent today trying (in vain) to catch up on all your blogs.. My God, you've all written a lot since I've been gone!

Also, I think it's time to drop another bombshell.

*whispers* in thirteen days (ohmygod) I will be gone for three weeks.


EEEP!

Saturday, July 10, 2010

Basically, my life story.

Well not really..

I haven't written in a while (Frenchie).. And I think I might do it today. So I was reading this post on Gabrielle's blog, where she talks about a boy she likes, and the story reminds me so much of a boy I liked. A long long time ago!

(Now that I've written it, I've realised the stories aren't very similar. Also, I hadn't intended for this to be so deep. haahahhah. By the way, I WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL BY THURSDAY. With a super good post.)

http://music-and-the-lyrics-of-life.blogspot.com/2010/07/story-time-whoo-hoo-pulls-tissues-out.html


Okay, so let's drag ourselves back to the 24th of March four years ago. I was at my best friend Ash's birthday party. There was a boy there with dark hair, who brought her lemons as a birthday present. I knew this was it. This was Love. There was also a ginger there too. And we had a good time, played monopoly, yadayadayada.. Wait, I just realised I'm going to have to change his name.. Just in case. Okay, we'll call him Heathcliff, seeing as it's obviously fake. Anyway.

So we left Ash's 13th birthday party and that was it. For now. My friend.. Catherine Earnshaw started to talk to Gingey, they got on really really well. I was jealous of her, that I didn't live right next door to them. So I started to make excuses to get closer to them. I would go over to her house more often, don't get me wrong, Catherine Earnshaw and I were great friends, and still are. (Oh and by the way, this isn't Catzy.. I hadn't even met her yet). But anyway, gradually we got closer. And introduced to more of their friends. And so a group formed. Which we called the "Posse" (it works with the area they live). We spent the entire summer of '07 together, wow, I was in love with Heathcliff.. We would flirt, spend the days together, we had our songs, our jokes... It was amazing. Life carries on. I "went out with" a boy around Halloween of that year, because I was starting to realise that maybe Heathcliff didn't like me in that way (actually I've a funny story about that boy for later). Maybe I went out with him to make Heathcliff jealous. I don't know.

But anyway, we broke up after a while and then, after New Year, another boy joined... Who, for the sake of this, we shall call Gremlin. No reason or anything.. *cough* Anyway, this Gremlin caused a rift in our tightly knit group. See, he liked a friend of mine, Jess. But she rejected him, even though she liked him, she wasn't ready or something. And so he decides to go out with Catherine Earnshaw. They lasted a week. After they broke up, Catherine realised she loved him, and this is where shit hit the fan.. Cos what does the good old Gremlin do? Only ask out Catherine's best friend, and mine and Jess'. Oh and by the way, Jess's sister died near Christmas and my mam got diagnosed with cancer in March/April time.

So Poser decides to accept him, even though she knows Catherine still loved him (can I clarify that Catherine knew him quite a while beforehand?). So what happens next? Oh nothing only Gremlin cheats on Poser with Catherine Earnshaw. Jess and I find out, and Gremlin begs us to tell Poser, so we do. This news splits the group. Why? Well, turns out that Gremlin had also been sexting a few girls. Yet Poser takes him back. Even to this day, it angers me. Jess and I pack up and leave. Heathcliff blames us for it, even though Gremlin had asked Jess to do it (they were best friends then) and yadayadayada. Basically we can fill this part (summer 08) in with two words "TEEN ANGST". I went through a terrible time (this is what I was talking about in that post about God). I remember babysitting, and sitting downstairs while the kid was upstairs and CRYING and CRYING and CRYING. I cried myself to sleep. I self-harmed. And the thing is, only Jess knew. No one else, just her. I know now, it was wrong of me to do that but Christ at the time, there was nothing else. I felt like everyone hated me, and in truth, they did. Taylor Swift is right, fifteen is the age when everything changes. I couldn't help hurting myself, I felt like I had caused everything. I wished I could make it so Jess got to say goodbye to her sister, I wished she never had to say goodbye. I wished I could cure my mam. I wished Heathcliff would love me. I wished for everything to work out and it hurt so much, because each one I needed so badly. It wasn't like now "I wish they'd ask me out".. I needed his love. And it was my fault he didn't love me, it had to be. There was something about me that, to him, made me unlovable. I wanted to spend my life with him. And I know fifteen isn't the age to decided this, but it's what I wanted.

Anyway, due to another friend, things were smoothed over. Eventually. It took a long time, and I will never forget it. And for the most part, things went back to normal. Then something terrible happened. Jess and I fell out. This killed me. I wanted to be her friend, desperately. But she was in a different place to me. And I needed so badly to let the past go. I had to, I wasn't able for it. I know it makes me sound like a bad friend, and maybe I am. Wait, I AM. I couldn't shoulder her problems and mine. I started to hang out with Catherine Earnshaw more. And this brings us up to last summer. So Heathcliff decides let's drop a bombshell..
"I'm gay"

I didn't know what to do. I mean, believe me, be as gay as a hatter, I don't care, honestly.. But please.. Not you. I needed you to love me. I needed you.

Luckily I went away with the family for a while that summer. We went back to school this year, and now things are finally getting back to normal and I'm getting over it. Kinda. Well, the thing is, I wasted what, 3/4 years of my life on him? You don't get over that easily.

Anyway, how are YOU today?

Ghost Bus, and des mauvaises nouvelles D:

So I was on the bus yesterday, on my way into town and there was a woman sitting across the aisle from me. She was fairly old probably any where from 70-80. At the next stop, a man of around the same age gets on, and when he sees the woman, he takes a double take and says:
"AH JAYSUS! HOWIYE? Sure I thought you died."

I could barely control my laughter.

Imagine seeing someone you thought had died.. on a bus? Jaysus, I'd take a heart attack.

And ladies. I have some mauvaises nouvelles. You see, this year, my family are having a French student stay with us for two weeks. And we shall have to entertain said student, which of course means family outings and whatnot.
And tennis three times a week. FML.

Well it's good news for me, cos I want a student.. But bad news for you because this means I have restricted internet access for two weeks. Quelle dommage! However I shall try my best to keep you updated and comment on as many blogs as possible, but if I'm slacking, it's not my fault.. and it's only two weeks anyway!

Don't miss me TOO much.

Pride!

So basically yesterday was...
THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.



So far.

Yesterday was the Dublin LGBT Pride Parade 2010.

And what better way for me to celebrate it, than make a shirt for my friend? :D I told my dad it was for me and he was all *awkward*.



The word "amazing" does not fall under how much I enjoyed yesterday.. And I'm not even a raging lesbian! Everyone was so happy and carefree and I couldn't help but think, this is probably where these people must feel the most at ease with themselves.









One of my favourite things about yesterday was seeing the crowds of people cheering us on and waving flags and all, it felt so good that they accepted everyone and that there was so many of them, you know? It was just plain amazing. Another thing I liked was the amount of children that were there, because I just thought how great it was that people were bringing their kids to it, and how accepting they were. There was one moment where I looked out into the crowd, and I saw a woman with a kid in a buggy (about two/two and a half years old) and the kid was clapping along like crazy, and I laughed and pointed her out to my friend.. And as I was pointing her out, I caught eyes with the mother.. And I don't know, but it was one of those moments. She smiled back, and I couldn't help but think, she doesn't know I'm straight and was there to support my friends, but for all she knew, I AM gay.. And she didn't mind.



Things have changed. They really have.


My friend (Catzy) and I. I only realised now how weird we both look, but I'm not uploading another :)

Saturday, June 26, 2010

I'm a depressing bastard tonight. But I've been thinking.

I want to do two blogs about today.
One on the Gay Pride Parade, which I'll do tomorrow and another on an epiphany I had.
See, today I was walking through town to get a bus, and a man was handing out medals, you know the religious kind. I took it from him, thanked him and walked on.
When I got home, I just happened to find it in my pocket.. And I've had a bit of a rough evening and I was thinking "What was the point of him handing these out? Is it supposed to make everything better? Protect me? Or what?". Then I thought, "Right God, if you're here, if you're real, change this, change everything."

Then I remembered various conversations I've had with religion teachers, priests and other people like that. God doesn't prove himself, you've to have faith in him. So wait a second.. What that means is, and I only realised this an hour ago, that everyday my faith is tested with people dying, bad things happening, you know what I mean. But I, the person who he is putting through all of this, is not to expect an answer when I call upon him? And I'm not talking about tonight, I've called him before, when I had faith. My mam had cancer two summers ago, my friends all abandoned me (bar one, who had to do the job of many friends) and I was left there virtually on my own, the only reason I hadn't tried to kill myself was because I knew my mam wouldn't forgive herself if I did. She'd blame herself and lose the will to fight the cancer. God didn't help me then. He didn't give me guidance. He left me. Or was never there to begin with. Maybe I could say he didn't help me because he knew I wouldn't be the reason my mam died. But why did he risk it?

Not that my situation was as horrible as some people go through. I don't know if it's made me a better person in the long run, I don't know. But the thing is, there ARE worse off people out there.

Where's God when they need him?

It's really amazing the thoughts that stem from a necklace. I don't know, maybe I'm on my own because I don't believe, or maybe God realised I didn't have a strong enough faith. I'm certainly not criticising anyone for their faith in God. You're a stronger bunch than I am.

Thursday, June 24, 2010

So this is how I've spent my past week.

It's time for an educational post today. Well, not so much educational as.. you'll get what I mean in a minute.
Today I'm going to show you how I made a t-shirt! *the excitement*

So first things first, what you'll need is a blank t-shirt (no way).
Unforch I didn't take a photo of this part. Oh well. But I bought white t-shirts(men's, I like the fit better) in Penneys for €3.


Apparently now, the paint goes on to already washed t-shirts better.. But I didn't bother to be honest.

Then, you'll need some fabric paint.

You can buy this paint in probably any decent craft shop. I got mine in the Art and Hobby shop for €3.99


Now, you'll need some stencils etc. Depending on what you wanna put on your t-shirts. I wanted writing, so I bought a sponge alphabet for €2.



Now, think of something witty. Okay thought of something? Yeah, make sure you have the correct spelling and grammar. Don't want to look like a fool now do we?

NB. PROTECT YOUR AREA WITH NEWSPAPER. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR GROUNDINGS/BEATINGS ANY PARENTS/TABLE-OWNERS MAY INFLICT UPON YOU WHEN THE PAINT GETS EVERYWHERE. COS TRUST ME, IT DOES.

Now, put some newspaper or some thick cardboard in the inside of the shirt (it tends to go through to the other side) and simply throw some paint onto the sponge and lash it onto your top. Doing well are we? Yeah, well make sure to wash your hands quite often (paint gets EVERYWHERE, but I'll show you how to deal with that later).

So, I printed out "make tea, not war" (I wore it today and the bus driver laughed at it *smiles*) here's what it looked like:


Soz it's sideways, I'm not sure how to fix that :/ Anyway, you get the picture. Now although it looks pretty unflattering and square, don't worry! It looks good on!



Look at that sexy bitch. (I'm sorry)

Now clearly cos I'm a talentless bastard and the paint gets everywhere, there were quite a few blobs of paint scattered around the gaff. So to fix this, I stenciled a heart (I'll link a video of how to do that at the end) over the little blobs.





Both of these are me fixing mistakes.

I've become quite obsessed with this, and here's another I'm in the process of making:

..reading my diary..
Name that show? :)



"What's with that bizarrely placed heart Ailish?" you say.
"Oh, well I dunno. I didn't make a mistake or anything, I just felt like putting it there" :/




Moving on, after you're finished with your design leave it to dry (preferably over night, that way you're safe). Then get some greaseproof/baking paper, put it over it and iron (as shown above. That photo makes me feel really dizzy).


Here is a video on how to make your own stencils. It's super easy. Though, I've never tried the first way of doing it. It looks like it requires effort, but still, it looks easy enough. She shows another way though, that I use.


Enjoy!

Here's some alphabet soup.. Straight from my bathroom sink!

Whoa

Thank you Mizz Ali for awarding AND tagging me.

*gasps*

Hmm.. Shall I write about my most embarrassing moment? OH MY GOD I thought of one. Okay, so my friend and I have just bought smoothies (actually I don't think I had one but whatever) and we go into a shop, that has massage chairs, so we're sitting there on them lalallalala and my friend turns to me and says "you know, it feels so much better when you close your eyes." So we're sitting there eyes closed, then I hear a soft bang and I open my eyes. My friend is no where to be seen, however her smoothie is now on the floor.. And all over the €1000 massage chair. I see her running past the window. I'm sitting there like WTAF just happened? And pick up my bag and run. Even now I'm blushing ahh.. :S

An Award from Amy.

The Honest Blog Award. nomnomnom.
Amy gave me an award, because I'm amazing and follow her! I've to answer these questions and then award six other honest bloggers.

Share 1 thing no one knows about you.
That no one knows about me? I don't think that's possible. :S I live far away from civilisation. How's that?

What is your biggest regret in life? (hello, everyone has regrets)
I REGRET NOTHING!! I'm kidding.. My biggest regret would be.. letting my friend go. I shouldn't have. :(

Have you ever been jealous of someone else’s blog page and why?
Yeah, of course! Some people have such good relationships with their followers. I can only hope I'm like them *.*

What would you do for 1,000 dollars?
This is a hard question.. I would eat a spider.

What secretly makes you happy? (Money? Kids? Porn? Sunshine?)
Annoying people :) But being with friends, sun and ice-cream also do the job.

If you could go back in time, would you still pick the person you are with right now? And why? I'm not with anyone.. But knowing me, if I were, I probably wouldn't pick the same person.

What do you like or dislike about my blog page?
I dislike how few followers you have *cough*click me*cough*. Granted you're only starting.. But I like your posts and pictures :)

If you could take a trip anywhere, who would you take with you?
FRANCE/Germany/New York. I would take.. someone fun. Probably a friend ^^,

Taylor Swift...

Okay, so lately I've become.. "obsessed" as some people like to call it with a certain Taylor Swift.





But look at that adorable face? How can you not become obsessed with her?




She looks gorgeous, she acts gorgeous and she sounds gorgeous. The word gorgeous lost all meaning for me. Anyway, she's a beaut.



Did you hear that she did a fourteen and a half hour meet and greet the other day? Now that's what you call dedication to fans.


By the way, you might wanna listen to this. It's "Forever and Always" on piano. It actually brought a tear to my eye.

Sorry for the short/random post, I'll have a proper one tomorrow, I'm just gushing with all the Taylor ^^,
Thank you for all the lovely comments and the 23 followers. I'm so delirah :D

Workworkwork

My legs are aching, my head is pounding, my arms are sore and my patience has been tested.
Hi you guys, I'm just back from work as a lounge girl! Thankfully, the money is keeping me in a good mood, though I'm not getting properly paid til next week (FORFUCKSSAKE) I did get my tips.
I'm going to look for a proper job tomorrow, because I only work for them the odd day they need me. I would accept a job in McDonald's in a heartbeat. I will never be a full-time lounge girl/barmaid. whatever. Never happening. Ever. I haven't got the patience for sober men to flirt with me, let alone those fueled with alcohol.




And another thing, on the subject of men.
I wanted to shout
"WHAT IS THE POINT OF ROARING AT YOUR COMRADES?! THEY'RE SITTING RIGHT BESIDE YOU. THE PUB IS PRETTY QUIET. WELL IT WAS, UNTIL YOU STARTED SHOUTING!! AND ANOTHER THING, WHAT YOU JUST SAID? YEAH. IT WASN'T FUNNY."


But I assume that wouldn't go down too well.
I hope you're having a lovely Sunday and a happy father's day.

Oh and by the way, thanks for the 20 followers. I'm moving up in the world!

Watershed anyone?

Sorry lads, there's some swearing in this, but I'm just quoting! So if you're young and impressionable or if you don't want to read it, that's fine, I'll have a normal post up later, I just have to blog about this!


Picture the scene.. It's a lazy Friday evening, around half six.. My friend and I have just bought orange ice-pops and are walking through a quiet housing estate, where a handful of people wait on the bus, and one woman cuts her garden hedge. A car, with four twenty-somethings inside slow down beside us. "Typical" I think, waiting for them to shout out abuse at us. Well, not abuse exactly, but no one wants to hear someone shout "NICE ARSE!" at you. Especially when you can hear the sarcasm in their voice. Anyway, one in the back shouts out "yhuurr gettin well stuck inte dah ice-pop, arn ye luv?" which roughly translates from Dublin talk as "you're getting well stuck into that ice-pop, aren't you love?". Which is no lie, because we were.
They drove on a little, but then suddenly slowed down A LOT. The guy in the passenger seat rolls down the window, sticks his entire torso out and roars, at the top of his voice (reminder, we are in a quiet estate) "I LOVE D!CK. I LOVE D!CK. I LOVE D!CK. I LOVE D!CK. I LOVE D!CK. I LOVE D!CK. I LOVE D!CK. I LOVE D!CK. I LOVE D!CK." I just stood there in shock.
In fact, I probably looked a little something like this:



It did take a few minutes for the hilarity of the situation to sink in. And by then, I was crying with laughter (yeah, I only spent half my life putting on my make-up that morning). The faces of the people waiting on the bus, were priceless. I just keep remembering it, and the seriousness of his expression and how loud it was, seriously, thank Lord there were no kids around, it was half six!

I only wish I could have recorded it. I'd watch it every day.

The Hunger Games.. Suzanne Collins.

See the title? Go to your nearest bookshop, and buy the book of the same name. I don't care if you've no money, go to the library. I don't care if you can't read, buy it and pay someone to read it to you.


No matter what other books I read, I've a feeling this one will always be in my top favourites. I sat and read for two hours straight last night, fell asleep and when I woke up, the first thing I did (aside from getting some food) was crack open the book again. Seriously, I cannot give this book enough praise, I can't even begin to grasp how amazing it was. Amazing is a weak word to describe how good it was. I felt as if I was actually right there, fighting for my life. I'm gushing, I know. It was just brilliant in every sense of the word. This is the thing that annoys, about Twilight.. The love in this book is nothing compared to Bella and Edward. Why aren't people wearing "Team Gale" or "Team Peeta" t-shirts? Because, they should be.

Read it. And read it NOW.

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Hi there. I wanted to do a more personal blog for a change, because I don't really think I do that very often.
Lately, well the past week or so, I've started fraternizing with some new people. Well, some of them are new, they're friends with mutual friends, and through that we've begun to hang out. And I must admit I'm still at that awkward stage. I mean, although with my last group of friends, we didn't "end on bad terms" or even "end" as such.. We just drifted. And to be honest, some of them have been really bugging me lately, so I just want to get away from them all. But it seems weird at this stage to almost be "ditching" them, especially considering my best (female) friend still hangs out with a few (one or two) or the others. And I really don't want them to think that I don't like them anymore, or have ditched them.. But I really don't want to hang out with them.. And at the moment, it's almost awkward on the rare day that I actually do hang out with them. I don't know, I feel like I have no proper friends, and that no one really knows the "true" me because I'm far too afraid to show her. It's just hard I mean, to fit in and to find my place in a group, and I'm not used to it at all. Sometimes I just don't know what to do with myself.



I think this is a lovely picture. And yes, I took it.

So uhm.

Well, I didn't exactly do my "five hours studying" last week.. I might try this week. Though, I'll have to do 10 hours that way. :/ I'll see what the weather is like. I mean, let's be honest here, it's never sunny in Ireland, and I need to get my yearly dose of vitamin D in whatever sun I can get my hands on. Granted, I realise I could study outside. But whatever. Maybe I should consider it. I have only got €3 to my name until Saturday. And I don't want to break into my savings...



Like my face? Me wants that hat back :(

Jesse St. James


I had heard from a friend that the actor who plays Jesse St. James on Glee, Jonathan Groff (I thought he looked like a Jonathan.. Jonathan's always look similar, I know two, who look kinda like him.. Strange) was gay. And I decided to investigate this, as in the last episode, during Bohemian Rhapsody I was thinking that, from his body language. So I googled him. Clicked on one of the first links, happened to be a Wikipedia article (for the record I did type "Jesse St. James").

Jessie St. James
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For the Glee character, see Jesse St. James.

Jessie St. James is an American pornographic actress who was one of the biggest stars of the "Golden Age of Porn".


Wow, I wonder was that naming intentional?


And she's watching him with those eyes.. And she's loving him with that body, I just know it.. He's holding her in his arms late, late at night. You know, I wish I had Jesse's girl.

Why?


I'm not sure if you can read that.. But why is it that when you type in "why" the top three results are related to Irish people and two are insults?
Is this everywhere?

Also, if you missed my animal testing post, please do read it!

Animal testing. (and I'm sorry!)

Back in September of last year, had you have asked me my opinion on "animal testing" I'll tell you exactly what I would've said.
"It's terrible, it should be banned."

And I'm sure, for the majority of people, that's what they would've said too. But would you ever do anything about it? No, probably not. However, this all changed for me in October. You see, we had modules of Religion, and the topic of one module was "morality". About two days before the final project was due, by chance, I ended up partnered with a friend of mine (through a falling out with another). Seeing as the project had to be done quickly, I suggested animal testing, thinking;
"We'll stick up a picture of a puppy in a cage, and it'll be grand."

This wasn't what happened at all. To say it changed my life does sound like an exaggeration, but it's true. To this day, I have bought nothing (except toothpaste and some shampoos.. I'll explain that later) that has been tested on animals. And I mean, it's not like I went and threw out all my make-up, and bought new. Of course I didn't. Aside from the fact that I'm not loaded, I'm also not a waster, and I love a good bargain. So what I did was, any time I needed anything, I bought from a brand that didn't test.

Here's a list of the companies that do test. Clickyclicky.

And here's a list of companies that don't test.
Clickyclicky.

******
I'm so sorry for the lack of posts, and for not commenting on many blogs lately, I'm a bit behind, but I mean, it's summer ^^, And also, I will go into more depth about animal testing and all (I'm aware I didn't explain it, it's just that I haven't got a lot of time at the moment, but it will be up in the next few days.. And I also don't like reading long posts so I won't write them), so if you want to leave any questions, go ahead! Maybe I might even do some reviews, who knows? Anyway, I hope you're all having and excellent weekend and I'll talk to you all later.
Ailish.

Summer: Day 2.

Ah. So.
Well. Today I learned that snails can live up to 15 years. Imagine being a fifteen year old snail. Seriously, that astounds me.
The electricity went. Just as baby Mike was born into my Legacy (it rained today). I nearly killed someone. But it turned out for the best in the end, cos I reloaded it, and she had a baby girl, whom I named Lynette (yeah, it's all Desperate Housewives). Then I went out to buy Marie Claire (Taylor Swift is on the cover) but they hadn't got it. Sadface. I went babysitting and we made a Swiss Roll. Too bad we hadn't got the right ingredients, so it got kinda (and by kinda, I mean very, messed up). You have no idea how bored I am of summer already. Not that I'd rather be at school, I just don't have much to do.

Have no fear however, I have plans for tomorrow. I have a social life. Wait, who am I kidding?
Oh and I thought that I should explain my name. My name is Ailish. But I hate it, and my friends were trying to give me a nickname (for want of a better word) and Snailish stuck. Though Gaylish was quite popular for some time. No, but Snaily's awesome.

Summer: Day 1.

So, last night was fun. I went to a friend of mine's house, as a well deserved "THANKGODFIFTHYEARISOVER" gathering. Gatherings are always fun. (For the record, "someone" isn't me, I just want to remember how funny that moment was for the rest of my life.) Some people got a little too drunk, and someone got sick on the stairs. Honestly, I've been getting flash backs of that all day and thinking... about how hilarious it was. Especially considering I had been all "Stop it, you're making a fool of yourself." But no no no, let's ignore Ailish and throw up on the stairs. Really, people these days.

Today, however, was considerably less exciting. Or shall we say fun. I cleared out my bedroom with the help of my mother. A long over due clearing out. But now it's pristine, though it won't stay that way for long.
I've also started a Legacy on the Sims2 and I'm on my second generation. It is a pure nightmare. I've built my Sims a... "shack" is the best way to describe it. A bathroom with a shower and a toilet, and a living room/nursery/kitchen make up the "house" (ie. the parts that have walls). The bedroom is outside, along with the study and the game room. I named the Starter-Sim Mary-Alice Young, and she got married to Benjamin Long (staying with her name though) and they've had a daughter named Susan. I'm trying to get an heir who has Mary-Alice's grey eyes, and let them carry down with the heirs. I'll add some pictures of my Legacy so far tomorrow (I'm not on my computer).

I'm having one of those "we need to get out more moments" on Facebook at the moment.

ThankYou.

Thank you berry much for those comments yesterday ^^,
And yeah, I guess it's only one test.. But it's my usual grade in that class.
Looks like someone's gonna need grinds next year >.<

On the bright side (il faut voir la vie du bon côté) however, it's SUMMER!

(oh oh oh I got a hug off my favourite teacher ever today ^^, I've waited five years for that moment! She is such an inspiration, I want to be her when I'm older. Well, not really. But still, you know what I mean.)


FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM!
I'm off to party it up 2k10 style,

Oh shish.

I got 54% in Chemistry. The only subject I studied for. I'm afraid my mother will hit me, so I'll let the reports tell her. Awh crap :(

This is my favourite GMH.

Gives Me Hope
A little girl was dying of cancer and her younger brother had a match for the bone marrow she needed.

The doctors told him it was a matter of life and death.

After he had the surgery, he asked the doctors how long he had to live.

He thought if he gave his bone marrow to let his sister live he would die - but he did it anyway.

Wahey!

"Ailish, there's a letter for you.."
"Oh!!"
"What is it? Are you expecting one?"
"Well, not exactly"
"Then why the "oh"? Is it just cos you got one?"
"Well.."
*opens letter*
"oh that bloody school, I bet they're asking for money again."
"not really.. "Congratulations on your appointment as prefect for the coming school year""

That really brightened up my day after a terrible biology test. And I mean terrible.

Sunday, May 30, 2010

I love studying for biology exams. :)

So you know, two rhizopus are just chillin on the substrate, bread or whatevs. And then they're like "omg, you're a + and I'm a -, let's swell!" And all the nuclei go into the swellings and they make a progametangia.. And then it's all, "we're badass, let's make cross walls", so they do, and then the other walls dissolve and FERTILISATION takes place, and produces diploid zygote nuclei and they're all chilling, and a zygospore comes along and he's all, "Can I hang out here? If the conditions are favourable, we can germinate by mitosis." And as usual, a hyphae comes along even though no one really wants him there, and he takes his gf sporangium, but she just chills at the tip. And out of no where, she was quiet all night, she'll open and produce haploid spores.

I'm smug, ignore me!

Guess who's English answer was photocopied and handed out to the class as a "sample answer" and "revision sheet" for the summer exams?


Mine that's who!

I have never ever received an A in English before. Although I'm "hilarious" and should "write for TV" I'm not an A standard. Which translates as, "I don't give a tiny rat's ass and do my essays in the class before they're due" (this one was a week late). And can I just point out, she's not one to hand out A's. She doesn't exactly baby us, or go easy when it comes to grades. So you know, I'm amazing.

I promise I won't be like this tomorrow, I just want to remember how good this made me feel. :D

La Musique! #1. Ace of Aoife...

..is probably begining to think I've a crush on her at this rate. But, honestly I was going to do a post like this anyway (hence the effort I went to).

Along with the rest of the world, I happen to think I have an excellent taste in music.
I'm not going to bother with the usual Taylor Swift, The Fray side of my music, but I will however cover my not-so-conventional music.. Well, I think it is anyway.
And just as a warning, my music taste is varied, so if you don't happen to like whichever song I put first (they're in no particular order), do try the others! ^^, And if any of the links don't work, just let me know. :)

I wouldn't exactly call myself a Daft Punk fan, but this is serious toonage. Wowser.
Tom Hodge - Aerodynamic

Such a sweet song.. As is the rest of their album! <3
He Is We - Happily Ever After (I'm linking you to Strawburry17's video of it, cos it has a link to download their album for free.. Which I did, and it was sehr gut!)

Chances are you've heard this song before.. But I still love it.
Melpo Mene - I Adore You.

He's awesome socks.. Like really.
Your Love Is a Tease - Rod Thomas

Sometimes you just feel like this. Unforch I can't find a video of the actual song. So I've to resort to this one.
The Red Button - Can't Stop Thinking About Her.

I'm not too sure why I like this song.. But I do.
Mew - She Came Home For Christmas.

Don't bully me.. I like this song. :)
Mark Owen - Makin' Out

I love the message of this song. And I just like how it sounds.
Hairspray - Without Love

How sweet.. I love this band..
Hellogoodbye - The Thoughts That Give Me The Creeps.
I also like the song Call and Return. Oh summer.

I've heard Joshua Radin being mentioned a good bit lately.. But I loved him a year ago! I hate when this happens. I was all "listen to him, listen to him!" I'm always right.
Joshua Radin - I'd Rather Be With You.

<3 <3
Gregory and the Hawk - Boats and Birds.


That's all I can think of for the moment, but if I've left any great stuff out, I'll be sure to make another post.. You'll have to follow to get the next one though. *cough*

Ace of Aoife, I don't understand colours either.

This blog post goes out to Aoife. I told her that she should make some rainbow cupcakes, but she said she didn't get the difference between indigo and violet. And, after thinking about this.. I realised I didn't either. So I did some googling. Here is violet and here is indigo. Now being honest here, all of those pictures are either blue or purple. And there's some almost identical on both colours. So I turned to our good friend Wikipedia..
As the name of a color, violet (named after the flower violet) is used in two senses: first, referring to the color of light at the short-wavelength end of the visible spectrum, approximately 380–420 nm when indigo is recognized as a distinct spectrum color, or more commonly 380–450 nm (this is a spectral color). Second, violet may refer to a shade of purple, that is, a mixture of red and blue light, and not a spectral color (see a discussion of the distinction between violet and purple). Spectral violet is outside the gamut of typical RGB color spaces, and although it can be approximated by that color shown below as electric violet, it cannot be reproduced exactly on a computer screen.

For the record, this means nothing to me.
Indigo is the color on the electromagnetic spectrum between about 420 and 450 nm in wavelength, placing it between blue and violet. Although traditionally considered one of seven divisions of the optical spectrum, modern color scientists do not usually recognize indigo as a separate division and generally classify wavelengths shorter than about 450 nm as violet. Those who do accept indigo as a separate spectrum color regard its wavelength as being from approximately 420 nm to 450 nm.

Like violet, whether indigo is considered a shade of purple depends on context. Common English usage defines a purple color as any color between red and blue whereas in color theory, a purple color is defined as any non-spectral color between violet and red (not including violet or red since they are spectral colors). Thus indigo and violet fit the common but not the color theory definition of purple.

One can see spectral indigo by looking at the reflection of a fluorescent tube on the underside of a non-recorded compact disc. This occurs because the CD functions as a diffraction grating, and a fluorescent lamp generally has a peak at 435.833 nm (from mercury), as is visible on the fluorescent lamp spectrum.

The first recorded use of indigo as a color name in English was in 1289.

So that sorted that out.

I'm not having a go at Miley. I'm just being honest.

I'm just chillin', you know. Just chillin. My siblings have Hannah Montana on in the background. I turned around for a second, while I was waiting for a video to load. And it just struck me that, aside from anything else, Miley Cyrus has got to be the worst actress ever. I looked her up on Wikipedia, and according to that.. "Cyrus became interested in acting when she was nine, and took classes at the Armstrong Acting Studio while her family lived in Toronto, Canada." I do believe that is a lie. Seriously, I can't understand that.. And if you don't think this is true, just watch one of the shows with a critical eye, and compare it to any other show. Then you'll see how bad her acting is.
However, I just read further down, and I saw that she's been quoted as saying, although it contradicts the first part.. "I've not taken, like, acting lessons or anything, but it doesn’t mean I don’t need to because I’m sure I do [...] I’m probably going to go book an acting coach."

Yes, hunny, you sure do.
Btw, how creepy is it that the guy who plays her brother is 33? Just saying..

Yes. I am obsessed.

If you woke up naked next to the last person you kissed what would your reaction be?
Realistically... Probably to throw myself out the window.

Ever kissed someone who was high?
Nope. Uhm.. Why would I?

Ever purposely broken your iPod/phone just for a new one?
Why would I bother? My parents don't just buy me a new phone if I break mine. I'd rather trade-in to be quite honest.

Do you know any boys who wear makeup?

I know a boy who's worn it once! :P

Ever kissed someone with a tongue piercing?

Nope.

The person you like runs up and kisses you, your reaction?

;) Hmm.. I dunno, I'd probs be all "What the actual fuck?"

Would you get into a car with someone who was drunk if it was your only way of getting home?
NO! WAY! I'd rather sleep in a ditch. No really.

Has a friend ever made you extremely angry?

Yes.. Of course.. Countless times.

If you got kicked out, where would you go?
Ash's. ^^, What? She's been my best friend for thirteen years, she'd have to let me stay.

If any of your friends got kicked out, would your parents let them stay with you?

That depends on the friend, but for the most of them, probably.

You're locked in a room with the last person you kissed, what happens?

Well that'd be awkward.

Do you like pokemon?
Yes. Yes I do.

Do you understand football?

I don't get the whole "offside" malarchy. But other than that, yes.

Have you kissed more than ten people this year?

No, it's only May for crying out loud.

Have you ever cried from being so mad?

Yes. Especially two years ago. Gah.

Ever had a girl best friend?
Uhm.. Yes?

What was the last thing you and your mom talked about?

Desperate Housewives.

Camping with a ton of friends or hotel with a few friends?
Wow, I'd like either :P

Do you want to get married?
That depends.. Who to?

Do you know people that smoke weed?
Yes. >.< *is disapproving*

Was this the best summer of your life?

08 nó 07 :)

Do you think relationships are even worth it?

Yes.. No.. Maybe?

What was the most boring thing you did today?

My Irish aural. Oh good GOD. It might as well have been Arabic. Seriously, I'd have gotten more of the answers right. I just sat there for the 40 minutes staring out the window. I DON'T WANT TO DO HONOURS!

Last kiss drunk or sober?
Sober. Call me a dork, but I don't get drunk.

Do you like hugs?
Yes! ^.^

Have you ever fallen asleep with the last person you kissed?

Nooo..

Were you happier 5 months ago or now?

Maybe.. Yes, probably..

Are you thinking about someone right now?

Not really..

Is there someone you wish you were still close with?
Yes.. Only one though.

What are your plans for tonight?
SLEEP! Seriously, I've been dying these past few days.. Also learning my oral. DAMMIT.

Have you kissed the last person you have texted?
No.. Surprisingly.

What was the last thing you drank?
Water!

Do you believe that there's good in everybody?
Not in the case of my Irish teacher. A friend of mine once told me, well not me, but I was in the conversation, to never say anything online that you wouldn't be willing to date and sign. I'd be willing to hand deliever a letter of hatred to that SON OF A BITCH. In fact, that's what I plan on doing on grad night. Let's see anyone try to make my life a living hell for five years again ^^,

What side of a heart do you draw first?
The right side..

Does it annoy you when people play dumb?
Yes. I do believe there is nothing worse than doing that. And at the opposite end, I hate when people act like know-it-alls. Though, I do that quite often.

When is your next kiss going to be?

I've no idea.

Do you listen to music when you're down?
I listen to music all the time ^^,

Can a relationship last without honesty?
No way.. The thoughts of "loving" someone who'd lied to me makes me cringe.. And I find it very hard to trust. So I mean.. Not for me anyway!

Have you ever thought about getting your tongue pierced?

Noo :)

Spell your name without an E, R, S, H, K
Aili

Biggest fear?
Spiders, growing up, saliva (seriously), heights and falling down the stairs.

Do you automatically hate good looking guys?
No, usually they're quite nice.

Does anyone hate you?
My Irish teacher ^^,

Can you dance?
I'm the worst person I've ever had to dance with. And unfortunately I'm stuck with me for life. I can only pity anyone who dances with me.

Do you tan easily?
Yes :) I have my Spanish roots to thank for that

Whens your next holiday?
July (epic song) :)
