An Education

2012-09-29, at 18:42:24
 
I saw this movie yesterday, and I absolutely loved it! At first, you think it's such a romantic story, but then it all just turns into heartache, and then it's all ok again. I definitely recommend this movie!
 
"So, I went to read English books, and did my best to avoid the speccy, spotty fate that Helen had predicted for me. I probably looked as wide-eyed, fresh, and artless as any other student...But I wasn't. One of the boys I went out with, and they really were boys, once asked me to go to Paris with him. And I told him I'd love to, I was dying to see Paris... as if I'd never been."

Dream Outfit: Autumn

2012-09-28, at 20:01:26

Jeans - Bag - Pullover
 
 
The links will take you to the Finnish site. The whole outfit costs 299,85€, which means I'll never own it. I doubt I'd fit into those jeans anyway. But a girl can dream, can't she?
I just love the pullover so much.. but the price. </3

Exams: Day 1

2012-09-28, at 11:59:00
 
Derpy gif. I want ice-grey contact lenses.
 
I didn't have an exam today, we just wrote essays in Swedish, which wasn't all that easy.
We got a short story, and then we got to choose if we wanted to write about the time, environment, social environment or a fourth category which I don't remember.
I chose environment, and I'm pleased with my essay, although I'm afraid that I didn't go deep enough with some of the things..
 
Oh well, I got home at about 10, and since then I've been doing.. nothing. While I should have studied psychology, physics and math. Oops.
Ah well, I'll do that tomorrow, because right now I'm going to watch an episode of HIMYM while waiting for my phone to recharge, and then go out for a walk. :)

I think I'll miss you forever

2012-09-27, at 20:24:09
 
After a very intense round of football during P.E, a shower and a pasta salad when I got home, I sat down with my psychology book and found that studying was much easier than it usually is.
So I finished early tonight, made a cup of tea and watched Sherlock.
The gazillion small flies that live in our house now that the weather's getting colder seemed to think that my tea was the perfect place to commit suicide in, so I almost drank five flies. Yummy?
 
This day has been great, for no apparent reason, and absolutely rubbish, for reasons better left unmentioned.

Momentarily insane

2012-09-27, at 10:11:04
 
I feel like I've temporarily slipped back into my rocker attitude, I want to give everyone the finger and just bury myself in music all day.
I'm home at the moment, I don't have class until 12:20, so I decided it'd be nice to go home and get some proper food. They're changing our electric-meter-thingy though, so I have to use my phone's wifi, which I've so cleverly named "Not my internet, you bitch!"
Harry Potter quotes for the win! <3

J.K.Rowling Hysteria

2012-09-26, at 20:33:00


Rowling and her new book, The Casual Vacancy.
 
Because of the realease of J.K.Rowling's new book tomorrow, The Casual Vacancy, there are a few articles about the book and J.K.Rowling going around on facebook at the moment. In most of the articles, Rowling states that she could consider writing a new Harry Potter book, and that she'd like to write "director's cuts" for some of the already existing books, because she wrote them "on the run" and thinks there are things that could be added still.

Now, as the diehard Potterhead I am, I should be overjoyed by this news, right? Well, I'm not.
I just get incredibly annoyed by all the Harry Potter pages on facebook going "OMG OMG OMG, J.K.ROWLING IS WRITING A NEW HARRY POTTER BOOK!!! <3<3<3<3<3"
 
I mean;
1. Nothing is sure just yet, she might never write another Harry Potter book at all.
2. She mentioned she wants to write a director's cut, which isn't technically a new book.
3. She's also mentioned she could imagine writing a new book SET in the Harry Potter UNIVERSE, if she gets any good ideas. Not a new "Harry Potter book"
 
Personally I am very happy with how the Harry Potter series ended, and although I'm sad it's over, I think that writing more Harry Potter books would make it feel like Rowling was just "milking the cow", so to speak.
 
I will, however, try to get my hands on a copy of  The Casual Vacancy. Not so much because the story appeals to me, but because it's Rowling who wrote it.

Neville/Luna HC

2012-09-25, at 17:32:55
Neville climbed the stairs to the Ravenclaw tower with a pair of dirty shoes dangling from his hand, his cheeks a bit flushed. He had asked a 7th Year Ravenclaw for directions, who had glanced at the shoes and burst out laughing.
   When he got to the top of the stairs, he looked puzzled. Unable to think of a better solution, he knocked the knocker against the door. A soft, melodic voice sounded from the Eagle, "What work can one never finish?"
"Oh dear," Neville sighed, and sat down at the top of the stairs.
   After half an hour had passed, and Neville still wasn't even anywhere near of figuring out the answer, a silverblonde head came bobbing up the stairs. Neville jumped to his feet, "Luna! Luna, I've got your shoes!" he said enthusiastically as he waved the shoes in the air.
Luna's eyes blinked at him from a few steps below, a big smile spread over her lips and all the way up to her big eyes.
"Oh, someone actually bothered to read my list! Thankyou Neville, I almost thought I would end up going home without my shoes!" she said, and then she lifted the hem of her robes to reveal two fairy-pink socks with a few dozen holes.
   Neville blushed and mumbled something about seeing them dangle from the Whomping Willow and recognizing them. Luna's eyes widened further, and then she flung her arms around him.
"Oh Neville, you shouldn't have! That tree is dangerous!"
Neville unconsciously brought his fingers up to touch his lip, and Luna noticed it was split and swollen. She dug around in her pocket until she found her wand, pointed it at Neville and whispered "Episkey," then she gently pressed her lips to his. Another 5th Year Ravenclaw chose that very moment to walk out of the Common Room, standing completely paralyzed in the doorway for a few seconds before walking down the stairs, glancing curiously over his shoulder. Neville's face reddened, and a small yelp of surprise escaped him. Luna giggled and took his hand in hers.
"Come on, if we hurry to the Great Hall, there might still be some pudding left, you can sit at the Ravenclaw table!" Then she left the shoes at the top of the stairs and started dragging Neville in the direction of the Great Hall, and Neville wore an expression of overwhelming joy.

Studying, studying.. yeah?

2012-09-24, at 15:03:41
 
I don't have any lessons between 12 and 2 today, but I decided to stay in school and just hang around. I was super bored and had quite a headache, and then when I got to the 2 o' clock lesson, our teacher was sick, which means I sat there for two hours when I could have been home instead. I hate school.
 

Anyways, I have to study physics and psychology now, but I'll be back later.

Winter's knocking on our door

2012-09-21, at 19:53:05
 
Winter's knocking on our door, the air's getting cooler and the darkness is creeping up on us.
It gets harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning, and my energy level's dropped so much I've had to start taking small naps during the days.
 
I'm feeling slightly overwhelmed when it comes to school, and the exams are hovering over me like a dark cloud, which is the reason for my involuntary blog-pause. I haven't even used my computer for five days now, so it feels weird to finally have the whole internet at my fingers again.
But I'll try to update normally as soon as possible, and I'll definitely update tomorrow!

Worst day

2012-09-11, at 19:27:13
 
I had the worst headache yesterday since my headaches stopped this summer, and I thought it would go away during the night, but nooooooooooo, I still had a terrible headache when I woke up.
After that I was going to take my bike to school, but discovered I had a flat tyre, so dad had to drive me to school. School was boring and I just wanted to sleep.
 
I also have a fudging bookreport to write with Emilia and Cecilia, because we're going to have a presentation on it in Swedish class, and I really don't want to.
 
Have I mentioned I hate school?

I woke up quite late today, my mind set on finishing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, but sometime during the day I looked down at my nails and realized what a terrible state they were in, so I decided to paint them.
I'll show you the result of that after I'm done editing the pictures. :)

Hancock happened to be on tv yesterday, so I ended up watching it for the second time in my life.
I love, love, love this movie! It's just enough action, it's not too long, and the end is super sad but still very cute.
(Zota claims I think every movie is cute, I don't really agree..)
It's definitely a movie worth watching, and it will give you heaps of laughs. I mean, it's Will Smith, what else could you expect?..

A crappy picture of yesterday's night sky, I love how the moon illuminated the clouds!
 

After a run and about 4 hours of essay writing, I am so done for today. I only ran about a third of the way, and walked the rest, but I'm still so proud of myself, and my essay might not be the best, and it's only 2,5 pages long, but I really couldn't bother less.
 
I'm going to celebrate by watching some How I Met Your Mother now and working on my Ravenclaw-scarf (it's been almost a year since I started knitting it, and I'm still not done..), so nighty night everyone! :)

Happy Birthday Dad! <3

Not many can have a father
Who’s half as great as you.
Others might try, but they fall shy
You’re a top-notch father, it’s true.
So that’s why on your birthday,
I want to make sure you know,
I admire you sincerely and love you dearly,
And those feelings continue to grow.
 
 

I love you dad, I hope you're having a great day, and I'm glad someone made you a cake!
I miss you, and I'm sorry that you'll have to wait a while before I can give you your birthday-hug. <3

Whenever I post a picture where I'm not smiling, people are always like "You should smile more, you know"..

... Why? Isn't a photo meant to reflect your feelings? So why should I smile then, if I don't feel like smiling?

I understand if you (not YOU specifically, but people) think it's nicer to look at someone who's smiling, but that's just too bad for you, because I don't feel like pretending to be happy 24/7.

Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake

2012-09-02, at 15:32:22


 
I've wanted to try a mug cake for so long now, and decided that today would be a good day to try it. The only problem was that we only have two eggs at home, and I thought that we might need those for something else, so I looked up an eggless recipe, and it was delicious!
I didn't use any grated coconut or nuts in my cake though, since I think it would just have ruined the taste. I put in about a teaspoon of Nutella instead!

Ingredients:

-All purpose flour or gluten free flour- 4 tbsp
-Sugar- 2 tbsp
-Cocoa powder- 1 tbsp
-Baking powder- 1/4 tsp
-Milk, skim or whole- 3 tbsp
-Oil- 3 tbsp
-Sweetened grated coconut or your favorite nuts- 2 tbsp and little more for garnishing

 

Now all you need is a big mug, a spoon and a microwave. You just put all the ingredients in the mug and mix everything with the spoon (a fork might be a better option than a spoon though) until you have a smooth paste, and then you just pop it into the microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds, and then you're done!
Although I would recommend letting it cool down a bit before you try to eat it, you'll burn your tongue otherwise!

I found the recipe here.

A Luna/Pudding HC

2012-09-01, at 15:53:23
Luna came skipping through the halls at Hogwarts, against the tide of the people making their way back to their dormitories after dinner, while she was hurrying to get some dinner before it magically disappeared from the tables. She had been out on the Hogwarts grounds, searching for Nargles, and been so consumed in her hunt that she had completely lost track of time. She just hoped that there'd be some pudding left, pudding was her favourite food.
As she was about to pass through the doors to the Great Hall, she almost ran into Cho Chang, who was on her way out of the hall with her friend, Marietta Edgecombe.
"Oops, I'm sorry Cho, I didn't see you coming. I've been out hunting for Nargles, and I saw quite a few. You don't know if there's any pudding left, do you?" she said enthusiastically.
Cho smiled and said sweetly, "It's OK, Luna. I'm sure I saw some pudding at the other end of the Ravenclaw table."
Luna smiled a goofy smile and started skipping towards the table, and Cho's friend Marietta turned around to look at her, before she whispered, "She's not quite sane, that one.."
When Luna reached the Ravenclaw table, she noticed that, to her delight, Cho had been right about the pudding. She quickly sat down next to a 7th Year boy, who looked at her weirdly and moved two seats to his right, but Luna was completely oblivious to his existence.
All she could think about was the sweet, sweet pudding that was soon to be hers.
