Questions and Answers

I never know what you guys all want to see, so for once I decided to do something a little lighter, a little questions and answers so you could understand a little bit about me.

Mmm, I don't really shop that much. I use a lot of my siblings clothes, and I op-shop ALL the time.

Here is a little bit of trendy things I like in fashion. 

Totally the 80's, living and loving Carrie Bradshaw's days, any 80's movie and Lets Dance by David Bowie.

I haven't figured anything out in my life yet, the courses I want to take at school, my future job - let alone where I want to live. I want to live somewhere in the clicheness of the busy city, New York, Paris, London, or somewhere in Rome. Maybe a gap year of travelling???

I don't actually want to get this tattoo - but to me it represents the biggest feeling in my life, individuality.

I love this. Imagine, travelling in a caravan with your boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, or whoever and you have no cares or sorrows.

I love the notion of this messy room.

Urban glow of the metro.

My mum took this photo, it's blurry because it's night but its the oh so beautiful Arc de Triomphe.

At the moment, I have a lot of songs on my playlist. I don't listen to that many artists whole albums but more singles.

Big Sean - Beware
Kanye West - Blame Game
Broods - Bridges
Beyonce - Blue
Cody Simpson - Summertime of Our Lives
Jeni - Trap Love
Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition
Sia - Elastic Heart
Mapei - Don't Wait (Kingdom Remix)

WELL, there are a couple albums I'm in love with right now. Always will be Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Beyonce's new album.

It will always be writing. I could write music for other people and then we get a combination.

There's nothing to it. No one should care // have a say in who you love. If you love them, then that's it. Who gives a SHIT about if they have different body parts.

I would live where i live now. It's a lovely place to grow up in and I have people I'm blessed to include in my life.

Haven't really been to many places in my life, only La for five days and Fiji. So 3rd on Promenade with my friend Jillian in La.

I don't really care if New Zealand is forgotten because somehow we are always catching up to the latest gossip, and in a way there isn't that much publicity here, like not as bad as America. Everything is chilled out and people are just grand. Sometimes snobby, but homely.

I was reading a book on this the other day, where this girl has to give up all wifi and social media when she travels to this island for a year, and she is completely isolated from people. No I wouldn't, because I enjoy it, and I actually learn a lot from it.

Already answered. ^^

About a year and a half ago, I need to do it regularly. It's my stress release.

TO be a poet.

I really wanted to do a youtube channel! But I'm a bit too scared to do it!

Hey look it's my cover image!

I blog on the spot, because whatever comes to me. But I always know the title of what I'm going to post, so then it comes to me. I spend at least three hours editing before I post something.

I don't hate much, just sometimes people's behaviour. If something annoys me at that time, I'll probably have already tweeted about it. 

When teachers let you out when theres 0.3452415 seconds left. A bell means that we can leave, doesn't it?

Blog for yourself. Keep a direct message of what you want to post in each blog post, and you will be fine. Never back down from what you've written - if you're proud of it.

The Greatest Hero | Victor

When I was young, I looked at my parents and thought that they could do anything. They were the people that constantly amazed me with the little things they could do, like always finding something when a 5 year old child's mind couldn't figure out where it had been placed, or with the click of their fingers and the flick of the frying pan could make me something so tasty I looked at them in awe. Do you remember that age? Where your parents could do no wrong, and it's like they could accomplish everything.

Being a free spirit of 15 years old, I tend to wonder what happened to that gorgeous obliviousness. As a child, things were less complicated - if you fell down and scraped your knee, tears would form in your eyes and that was pain. Not the crap that we have to feel now, which is emotional pain. Being a kid I didn't know all that, and when I grew up to the age I am now, I realised that my parent's were not magicians, but were kind hearted, and calm people who were trying their best to raise four kids.

There's one particular person I would like to pinpoint in this random post. As you all know, I don't really talk about my personal life, my family, my friends, any of that. But this post is just to show my love and respect for one person. My dad.

My dad Vic is frankly one of the most extraordinary people I have ever met. A lot of how I have learnt to be the person I am today is from what this man has taught me. I was always in awe of my dad, from the way he would sing me Moon Shadow by Cat Stevens, or his ability to run so many things at once, and still have time for my whole family. From when I was a little girl, he would never be too busy for me, to have father daughter time, even though there are three other siblings that fought for his love.

Naturally, I am a very talkative person. But when it comes to confrontation, or telling somebody how I feel, I SUCK. There are so many times, when I know that I could have helped my parents, or done something to make it easier for them and to tell them how much I love them, I haven't. All I am saying is, never waste the time that you have with your family. You may get to a stage of your life, where you're so caught up in all the new flourishing things that accompany your lifestyle, that you forget about the people that loved you from the start, especially your dad and mum.

Even though I love every single one of my family members equally and especially my mother with her beautiful bright exuberance, my dad has always been the one that left me speechless at every little action he would do. He's the one that I have always looked up to for praise and support and he would always have the right thing to say, no matter what situation I would be caught up in. My dad works so hard for all of us, to make sure that we have everything that we need and I am blessed to call him my father. I mean sure there are some times where I get angry at him for a mixed plan, or for just little minority teen problems but - don't we all?

 I guess you could say that I am lucky to have parents so lovely and considerate, people that put their children first and worked hard for them to have a loving house and strong education. They say that actions speak louder than words, and ever since I was a child, love was thickly aroma-ed in the course of the air.

I have always had a very loving and close knit family. No matter how far away my sister is, or where I am, I can always know that my family will be there for me and support my decisions as a growing woman. Being this crazy kid that just wants to go out and see the world, feel and breathe the emotions and experiences I know that are out there, I need my family to keep me level - headed about the decisions I make.

Love your parents. We are so busy growing up that we forget that they are growing older, and there is nothing worse than not having enough time. Never forget how much your parents love you.

Fine | Ferocious

With people, you don't actually think there is too much to them. You only see whats on the surface and sure you know, like you - that they have a mind; thoughts and feelings that you will never know about. But the person you thought was the most narcissistic and awful person you had ever met, actually probably portrays a completely different persona to what they are truly like, deep inside. What we don't get is that we are all the same. Totally different traits, appearances and all that but no matter what type of person you are, don't tell me that emotions we all feel get you feeling any different. The feeling of loneliness, or rejection - where you feel so incredibly on your own. You don't want to bore, annoy other people with your problems. Or when you're lying there in the unearthly silence of the night time and you're reflecting back on the day and wondering what you could have done better, or changed your actions around to benefit yourself or other people.

I feel like the root of every problem is understanding. WE judge because we don't understand. WE judge because the way we see an idea or feeling, we want others to see, feel, follow through with, no matter what the cost. No matter the person, at some point in this life, I sincerely believe that every person existing or has had existed at one stage, has had some good in them.

It's natural to recognise that we have a bad side, everybody does. Embracing that you are not a perfect person, and like everybody else you have flaws. You might feel like you're on your own with this, that other people can't possibly feel the way you feel. But they do, they can & they will. People will pretend they don't feel alone, self conscious, undermined in their talents, not accepted - they will do their hardest to hide it because all they want to do is fit in, but at the end of the day if we could just understand that we aren't alone with human feelings, we would be at more peace with our flaws.

Your body is the house you grew up in, the garden that you chose to let flourish wildly or chop down, however you pleased to let it thrive, but why try tear to the ground?

It's whether we act upon these negative traits to let us become the people we know that we are not, is where the root of all evil lies.

Also, one of my true inspirations for a while has been Sophia's blog. It's simple, classy and makes you want more.
