Chapter Four

I have been blogging really erratically lately and it’s been five days since my last blog post (!!). I’m not sure if it’s because things are getting boring, or if I’ve really been too busy with other things. Maybe I don’t have anything to write about that people will find interesting, but I’ve had people tell me that I write about the most random things and they’re still interesting.

I haven’t returned comments for a month, and I’ve yet to catch up on how everyone is doing. Since last Friday I’ve been around, but I’m doing something that I haven’t done for five years: get enough sleep. I am not joking. For the past few days I’ve been sleeping for ten hours and napping in the afternoon, and it is so rejuvenating. They say lack of sleep stunts your growth and I think that is probably why I’ve been the same height for years. Well, fuck it, I’m 20 years old and I doubt I’m going to grow anymore. There are so many disadvantages to lack of sleep, though, like being stressed out. I found a grey hair yesterday. πŸ™

On the weekend I watched Interstella 5555 and Pan’s Labyrinth. I hated the latter. Well, didn’t really hate… but I didn’t enjoy it. James suggested I watch it because he believed it to be a beautiful movie. It is nicely done, but there were just bits in it that I completely cringed at. I don’t like the sight of blood, and there was a bit of it in Pan’s Labyrinth. For at least forty minutes straight my hand was covering half my face because I just didn’t know what to expect or when something might pop out of the screen. It was a good film, but I was frightened of walking around after watching it. 😰

I don’t do very well with films. I was looking at a list of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, and I counted a total of 37 that I had already seen. That isn’t all that much, and some of those movies I didn’t even like. At all. I really hate watching movies and it was while watching Pan’s Labyrinth that the full extent of my short attention span and lack of patience got the better of me. After twenty minutes I couldn’t even stand watching and though I was staring at the screen with the sound on, I couldn’t pay attention. I really dislike watching movies. I think I will try and watch some more this month, at least ones that I’ve heard are good, because I don’t like wasting time watching movies that aren’t good. πŸ˜›

On Tuesday I went to the city and my mum took me shopping. I hate shoe shopping. I like what it results in – a nice new pair of shoes – but I hate it. I hate sitting down on the chair, taking off my current shoes and trying on pair after pair until I find one that fits comfortably. I am usually pretty amazed when I find something that fits, because I have the most deformed tiny feet. I also have a problem with my feet because they don’t line up with my knees. When I line up my knees, my left foot sticks out to the side and it’s not straight like it should be.

It is always very hard to find shoes for me also because my toes are large in comparison (probably from doing ballet for so many years) and nearly every shoe I try on does not like my toes. But, despite all of that, I found three pairs of shoes that day – a nice pair of ankle-high heeled boots, a pair of black shiny flats (which are beyond comfortable πŸ˜„) and another pair of heeled shoes, which are more practical, and I dare say safer to walk in and more suitable for work interviews and such.

I also had to buy a 35mm SLR film camera for my photography classes. My dad didn’t have any so I had to go and look for some online. With the help of Mike (who knows a lot about cameras), James (buying) and Rachel (paying some with some money she owed me πŸ˜›), I was finally able to find a good one online. β™₯️ It’s a second-hand Canon EOS 300 from Ebay, but should be in good condition. James is picking it up tomorrow for me. I’m a little excited to get my hands on it. I think my parents are probably going to kill me when I want to buy a proper DSLR later on. 😢

I’ve been working on a song I’m writing, titled A Star, written about my cousin after she passed away. I think that when I get it recorded I’ll sell it on iTunes for 99 cents or something. It won’t be much, just me singing and playing guitar, but I’m pretty proud of what I’ve done with it. ☺️

Also, another milestone: I am letting go of woodnotes.org, and I should only have 11 domains by the time that domain expires. πŸ™‚ This reminds me of when I used to have 20 or so… which was insane. Anyway, I know I have to get around to reading some blogs and cleaning out some more website things.

I LOVE YOU GUYS. 😍
