Had my first and second to last exam today!! Woop!! It went pretty well, wasn't rushed for time or anything as we were only required to write 2 essays in 3 hours which is plenty of time. Next one is next Tuesday so got a bit of time before the freak-out begins again lol.
When I came home the first thing I did was put a t-shirt on as its freakin' hot here today! Then when the lovely Jac got home we proceeded to make chocolate whoopie pies! OMG they are the most delicious thing everr!! So lite and fluffy!!
Hitting up Body Combat tonight, dinner is all ready and Gilmore Girls will be watched! Life is goooood :)
I've randomly been thinking about the different types of humour lately, because one of the first things I notice about someone I meet is what sort of sense of humour they have, and something that attracts me to someone is if they have a similar sense of humour to me.
I asked my mum what sort of sense of humour I have a few weeks ago and she described it as "dry quirky" and "witty". I definitely notice that the humour I use is not everyone's forte, as sometimes I'll meet someone and make a joke that I'd be used to my friends laughing at and this new person won't laugh, and its like...awkward....haha.
This is one of the main attractions to le garcon, our humour is very similar :/
So I googled types of humour just to see how they can be classified, and have discovered that my sense of humour is a mixture of these types:
Sarcastic - I use sarcasm a LOT. If you know me well, you will be aware of this. Sometimes I even use sarcasm in text. This usually fails.
Self-deprecating - I will often make fun of myself. And others, actually, but in a joking way. This sometimes comes back to bite me though if the other person doesn't realise I'm kidding...
Witty/Highbrow - I like to think I'm a bit witty. I like to use puns :)
A sense of humour is a wonderful thing, and is so so so important. Cause your friends are those who not only are there for you through thick and thin but who also make you laugh lots (and thereby share a similar sense of humour). And personally, I love to laugh, and heartily appreciate those who can make me laugh :D
This is a photo of me laughing. I have no idea what Jess and I were laughing at, but any time spent with her involves many many laughs. I love this picture though, its so in-the-moment and candid <3
I lost my phone battery on Saturday night. Not the back panel that houses the battery or the sim card, just the battery. wtf. So bought myself the cheapest phone I could find, $39. It's actually awesome and super easy to text with. I love it's simplicity. In saying that though, I really want an iphone.
I want to belong to a book club one day. I love the idea of reading a book a week and then getting together to talk about it over drinks and canapes. It would also keep my mind young I believe (this is assuming I join the book club when I'm older).
Going to see Taken 2 tonight! Excited! Loved the first one so hoping the second one is just as good. Have heard good things from one friend. Also, Liam Neeson is awesome.
They have a 'guess the number of jelly beans in the jar' competition going at the local New World supermarket. The thing is though, it's only black and white jelly beans. WHO would want to win that? Pretty sure those are the two flavours everyone hates..green and pink are where it's at!!
Only 10 weeks till Christmas!!! whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!! This means summer though! woop!
So I have fallen completely and utterly head-over-heels for the song It's Time by Imagine Dragons. I heard it on the radio the other day and was wondering for ages where I'd heard it from before. I finally worked out that its on the trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which I've watched multiple times. Anyho...bought the song yesterday and have pretty much had it on repeat ever since! It's so beautiful in both composition and lyrics...
I don't ever want to let you down
I don't ever want to leave this town
'Cause after all
This city never sleeps at night
It's time to begin, isn't it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I'll admit
I'm just the same as I was
Now don't you understand
That I'm never changing who I am
If you haven't heard it, please have a listen! I hope you fall in love with it as much as I have :)
Jamie Oliver - Seems like such a chilled, down to earth guy, with a heart of gold. Not to mention his amazing culinary talents. Like honestly, imagine going to a dinner party at his place...(drools)...!
Johnny Depp - Do I really need to explain this one? He is pretty much the epitome of cool, and he is an amazing musician and quite a looker too. Can just imagine he would be an awesome person to chill with outside on the deck in the sun with a cold beverage, jamming his guitar.
Zooey Deschanel - Quirky and a complete babe, if she's anything like her character on New Girl she would be one fun chick to hang with. I imagine she would be the kind of friend to do girly things like baking or crafts with. Or go antiquing with.
Stephen Fry - Wittiness is something that I really admire (and wish I had more of), and this guy is pretty much the ultimate master. Hopefully being his friend would mean some of his incredible intellect would rub off on me....! Jack Tame - This TVNZ journalist seems like such a cool dude. He's so passionate about what he does and mega talented at it too. I imagine him being a friend that you could have deep and meaningfuls with about current events yet still go out with for a dance.
George Orwell - I admire the mind of this man greatly. Through his novels you can see he has some pretty strong beliefs, and I just imagine a conversation with him would be stimulating and thought-provoking.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt - Pretty much think this guy is amazing. He's an incredibly talented actor, a good singer and super cute! I reckon he seems like a guy you could watch chick flicks with, and he would actually enjoy them, and would enjoy walks around pretty gardens and stuff like that. Not saying that he's really girly, but he comes across as a guy who would enjoy and appreciate the simple things in life. Atticus Finch - An emblem of unwavering morality and goodness, who wouldn't want Atticus Finch as a friend! He would be the type of friend you'd go to for life advice, the type of friend that everyone needs.
Quite an eclectic group of people aye! Funny that there's only one female in there too.
Who do you think would be a cool friend? Fictional characters allowed ;)
So I mentioned in this post that life is a roller-coaster of ups and downs, and that you have to take each day as it comes, and embrace each scenario in a way that you are proud of. Well, I'm in a definite down period at the moment, after some very high highs relating to le garcon. Things seemed to be going really well between us, and it was exciting and cute. He was even getting to the stage of actually paying me compliments, which doesn't happen too often from him! But recently it's been different. He doesn't text as much and when we chat on skype he's distant and uninterested. Plus, a few comments from other sources lend me to believe that he's over it. This has made me a wee bit sad, and the week thus far has not been fun.
We watched the Sex and the City movie in class yesterday, which was actually a lot more enjoyable than I expected. I've never watched the show before, but I could really relate to the character Samantha. Definitely not because of her actions (nooooooo way...ew...!!) but how she hates her moods/emotions being defined by males. I feel exactly the same over this whole issue. One of the things that annoys me the most about it is that I've let it get to me this much, and effect my mood. I hate that. I hate that the way I feel about myself is defined by a boy. Grrrr!
Sorry to sound so depressed and angry. The 21st I went to over the weekend was actually heaps of fun, its just a pity the aftermath was so downbuzz.
This wee gem from Marilyn Monroe is something I shall try to keep in mind this week.
