I did my violin grade 4 today. It went fine. Not distinction good but not failing bad (hopefully!).
I wasn't as nervous as I thought I'd be. Pieces went good, scales fine... aural OK except the examinor played a little extract and asked me to describe 'the mood and character'. I had absolutely no idea what I was supposed to say, and after I mumbled a few things about minor keys and detatched to smooth notes - he laughed and said 'you haven't said anything about the mood or character yet!' so I decided to laugh it off (only way) and say 'sorry, I don't know how to answer that!'
At least the thing's over.
Unfortuneatly in the life of a teenager when something stressful ends another happens. In this case it's exams.. even though they're not for a few months some teachers have already mentioned it.. ;(
On a more postive note - one more week left of school til Easter hols! I'm going to Spain - yay!
listening to my sis's miley cyrus 'breakout' CD.
I can't wait...to POST again!

Yes, well. Ahem.
My bro is in his last year of primary school and the Y7s always do a play. So he's preparing an audition piece =)
He's not actually singing that song, he's doing Consider Yourself. Oh no, I'm off again..
ONE OF THE FAMILY!!!
ONE OF THE FAMILY!!!
Adding Oliver! to my list of fave musicals. I think I'll put it behind Grease but in front of Hairspray.
Mamma Mia! is still 1st :)
And I watched Funny Face yesterday. 3rrrrd.
OK, back to the point. He has to do an acting piece, so he and his friend are doing a bit from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. And then Consider Yourself.
Mother's Day today :)
I'm skint so I made buns. My brother got her an IPOD. And my sis got her a basket that's got lotsa chocolate in it.
Both of my siblings are younger than me!! I hate being broke. But those jeans were worth it.
I make no apologies for the french(ish) title.
Sorry I haven't written in a while. I'm practising really hard for my violin grade 4. It's next Saturday (eep) and I'm still a bit unsure of those pesky scales.
Well, Happy Friday!
Lovely and sunny here in Belfast, N.I. First day of spring today!
And it's only 11 school days til I'm off for Easter hols. I'm going to Spain ;)
Maybe I should have made that title spanish?
Hola, mi poco blogger amigas.
Have a fabby weekend!
I love St.Paddy's Day. Sorry, St. Patrick. But who calls it St. Patrick's Day, anyhow?
Today was really really FAB. I wore skinny jeans and uggs and a white tee and long grey cardi with a thick sparkly, and, of course, green belt around the tee and cardi. :D
Then I went to a mass in Irish and that was fine, but what happened after was the best....
Three of my friends and I went to see Eoghan Quigg.
From the X Factor, you know? Ohmygosh - I love him. I didn't when I went there (my heart belongs to rob pattinson) but we went and we were right up at the front and he was amazing!!!
He sang Year 3000 and We're All In This Together and 28,000 friends or something and Never Forget Where You're Coming From and the one that goes imagine all the peeeople...
It was BRILLIANT!!!
It was so funny (and great) cos he was wearing a jacket, but he said 'It's too warm in here' and took it off :P all the girls were SCREAMING. And then about 20 mins later he took off his SHIRT and he was wearing this vest thing!!!
There were SO many people wearing irish flag hats and etc etc. I love being Irish :D
I took a lot of vids and pics but I can't really be bothered putting them up so I'll get you a google image... One sec.
Ooh cool! The Google image is all shamrock-y.
aaah!!! And he was EVEN BETTER in real life!!
Have a lovely St.Paddy's day!
lots of green glitter and a dancing leperchaun :P
I just got the weirdest text message ever.
I'm assuming (and seriously hoping) that it was sent to me by mistake.
'I need water. My yellow bus is in the front room. NOW.'
Told you it was weird! The person must have used predictive text because I typed in 'bus' on my phone and 'cup' comes up too.
What is the world coming to if people need to demand a yellow bus?
Taylor Swift's album - Fearless - is amazing!
Seriously. It's the shizz.
She said she would get a heart tattoo on her foot if it went double platinum. It's gone triple platinum.
I wonder if she'll get it! I don't want to get a tattoo - I'm too scared of the PAIN!!
Happy Lazy Sunday :)
Yesterday, (Friday the 13th - AGAIN), was Red Nose Day in the UK. A.K.A Comic Relief! Woop!
Comic Relief is a charity that fights against malaria in Africa, and helps out young carers, runaways etc in the UK, too.
It's pretty awesome.
Anyhow, I wore a red nose to school yesterday, but our form tutor was annoyed with our class because some peeps messed around in History on Thursday, and our history teacher came to registration in the morning and complained :( He made us write an essay in form period on 'why respect is important'. Mine was really deep. I said, 'Together, with respect, (school), the city, the country, the world, will be a better place.'
Oh yeah... Anyhow.
He made anyone with a red nose take them off. It's lucky my hair covered the red heart drawn on my cheek with lip-liner :P
The TV is great for Comic Relief. I watched the doc of the celebs climbing up Mount Kilamanjaro, it was so good. They raised so much money.
And then there was Comic Relief Does The Apprentice, the Mamma Mia spoof (that was hilarious), the Ricky Gervais thing... and of course the videos showing the effects of malaria. Those videos were so sad, and a bit distressing too. I mean, who likes to see babies die? I sent the text message that donates a fiver, buys a mosquito net, and saves a life pretty much. Then my family called in and gave £50 which gives emergency treatment to 40 kids with malaria.
One child dies every 30 seconds from malaria. That's one million every year, and it's a preventable cause!!
To anyone who did see it - did you see the video of the teacher who asked her class to put up their hands if they knew someone who died from malaria? The whole class had their hands up. I was in tears the whole time.
But, omygosh, you will never believe how much money the raised!!!
OVER £57,000,000! 57 MILLION POUNDS!!!!!!!!
That will help so much.
What else. It's my school's ski trip. I really wish I'd gone! I was allowed to!! I didn't want to at the time, but I do now! They're away to Austria.
Downloading some music... yesterday and today iTunes are donating 20p from the 79p a song costs in the UK top 40. I bought a few, Right Round, I'm Yours, Broken Strings... and I just bought Taylor Swift's album :)
Feels good to help the world.
lots of love
Eyeko really DOES equal love. It's Japanese xD
Since I am an ambassador - I woul
d love (or EYEKO) to tell you that I recently purchased EYEKO CREAM!
This thing is fabulous in a pretty pink box. It's a moisturizing base with Vitamin E and other lovely things. It isn't foundation - more a glowy base which makes your face all gorgey and soft. :)
Buy it. Fiver.
Alsoooo... EYEKO MAGIC LIQUID EYELINER is baaack in town!! It's been out of stock for two months, I think! It's a liquid eyeliner that you dip in any eyeshadow colour you like, and it turns it into an eyeliner in the same colour!!!! Around £3.50 in Superdrug!!!
Love it. Eyeko it!
Louise (in my class) has started a beeeautiful blog - inspired by moi, I might add, hehe. :P
It's cool - she writes all about her day, her thoughts, what's going on the world o' Louise... Pretty awesome stuff.
Check it out!!
1. My hair is light brown and super curly. It actually hangs in ringlets.
2. Right now I'm wearing pink p.j bottoms, a tee and pink piggy slippers. :@)
3. I have 329 songs on my iPod. I need more.
4. I really wish I could start my homework on time. Soz. It's just not possible.
5. I'm kind of a book/shop/choc-a-holic.
6. I got the Gossip Girl season one boxset yesterday. Love it!
7. I love Audrey Hepburn (glam 50s movie star). I've got her boxset too :)
8. I have an unhealthy obsession with all things Twilight. I'm working through it, although all my hard work will have been for nothing once the DVD comes out. I've pre-ordered it from Amazon!
9. I get 300 free texts a month with my phone tariff. It kinda sucks 'cause they're gone in a day :P
10. I really like it when I get comments. Hint.
Look who's on the computer!
My week - same old. I need to make my normal days more exciting.
Therefore, I don't have all that much to write. Or, if I do, I've forgotten, because whatever funny/random/sad thing that happened to me on a certain day, I can't write about on the same day, 'cause of this VIRUS!!!!!!
At least it's Friday :)
listening to She Move's In Her Own Way - by the Kooks
Is it just me or have the fruit-parts in Muller corners gotten smaller?
Sozzies I haven't written in a while!
Someone sent me a virus through Windows Live - damn spammers. :(
It's making my computer super slow.. so I won't be able to blog so much, because it takes about 25 minutes just to get it going.
I'm determined to post at least one post per week though!
Nothing much going on... same old!
