Year 12?! D:

Okay, now that school's started, the workload has picked up (well duh). Although it wasn't much last week, I'm sure we're going to be struggling by the end of this one. Why? Because of two four little words.

The Higher School Certificate.

aihflajfuejf;asihfsdfladhfkusgujfkhg life. >:(

Okay. I know it has barely started, and I know how chillaxed I am most of the time (true story!). But just you wait... Give me a couple of months, maybe after our first exam period or something and oh my god, I'll probably be having some sort of breakdown. Imagine more tears than at today's lunch. MOOOOOOOOREEE!! D:


So, what's new pussycat? (Woaaah, woo-oaahh woaaah, oh ohhhhh~)

*cough* Anywho. I GOT MY LICENSE! WOOOOOO! (Yes, I look like a stoner in my picture. No, I'm not uploading it onto the blog.)

I got it... on the 30th of September... which is just over 2 weeks ago lol. It's been pretty fun... kinda. Okay, more stressful than fun at most times. Get this - my dad stresses me out more than I do. He keeps yelling at me :(. It does not help for an adult (although fully licensed and legally allowed to teach you) to be constantly yelling at you, the fledgling bird that needs guidance in order to fly without constantly hitting trees and stuff. Especially when your already short/limited attention span is struggling under the pressures of:

  • staying on the road
  • not going over the speed limit
  • not crashing into other cars
  • not running over kerbs
  • not running over people
  • not accelerating/braking too hard
  • not panicking!! (very important! :L)
and finally...

  • not punching said parent in the face while driving.
It is hard. And that segment wasn't even meant to be a rant. I just found it bloody annoying and I thought I might share this with you guys... Moral of the story: Make sure your instructor doesn't have a temper as short as one of Willy's Oompa-loompas.


Aaaaaaand I couldn't resist putting this one in... How could you?! :L


School's started. I'm totally looking forward for the next week or so. Why?



     c) ZOMG, no more Extension Maths!! Weeeeeeeeeee!!~

I'm definitely more excited than I really should be... but the average person would be, right? :D

Which reminds me. Year 12s have a long standing tradition (and I'm sure it's for pretty much every school in the universe) for Year 12 Jerseys! Yay! We can get a customisable phrase at the back of it! Yay! My only problem is that I'm so damn average that I actually don't know what to put on it. Seriously. So I need your help. 

Please, please, please leave some suggestions for me. If you say 'Average', I will hunt you down and run you over with the car. Cause I can. I don't have many suggestions at the moment... Make the obvious one and you die. All suggestions are welcome! :D


One last parting note: Do you play Neopets? I KNOW YOU DO, STOP HIDING.

Add me? :D I'm cassandratam123 :D (Shut up, I made that account six years ago.)
If you want more friends, I'd suggest leaving your username as a comment below... Free advertising yay! :D

And now I bid you farewell. There are no guarantees as to when my next post will be... You'll just have to wait and see, won't you? :P

Good luck to the Year 12s sitting their HSC exams. I'd laugh, but I know that will be us in a year D: Oh dear... Besides, if you are in Year 12, GO STUDY!!! D:

You heard me. Comments and suggestions pl0x. By the way, check out the chat box on the side! Pretty sweet, eh? :D

I'm still alive!!

Okay guys, get this. I've been procrastinating on the blog since... the 30th of September. Back in the holidays... Remember those things? Yeah. DAYUM I'm amazing. Haha. Here's what I wrote two weeks ago.


The first week of holidays is almost over and I'm yet to have an actual break! Seriously people. 

Okay maybe an explanation... Especially for my poor friends who thought I was eaten by my relatives from Minnesota. Haha, how right wrong were they. :P

Take off for Port Stephens. Yay! Port Stephens was a... 3 hour drive? I don't even remember now. We were meant to set off at 7:30, but it ended up being closer to 8... Anyways, we didn't go to our lodge straight away, we had a dolphin watching cruise booked for 1:30. We bummed around for a bit, bought food/lollies and took photos like your average Asian tourist. LOL. On the boat, we all marked our territory on the top deck of the boat with our various bags, hats and persons, and so we waited for the ship to sail. Swim. Go. Whatever.


That's all I had. LOL. I think I realised why I didn't finish that post... a) it was 12:30 midnight or something, b) I'm a lazy bugger, and c) The pictures I took weren't uploaded from the camera yet! :( So here's some more of it.

We went to the Hunter Valley. We stopped by a several wineries and other specialty shops. If you ever go down up? there, make sure you visit those. Especially the Chocolate shop. CHYEEEEAAAAH! We bought Chocolate Pasta. U jelly? It's literally pasta - macaroni, actually - and it's chocolate flavoured. That's right. Chocolate pasta. You should be jealous! But we haven't eaten it yet, so yeah. I'll get a photo of it when we do. :D

In the evening, we decided to take a quick trip to the beach. You can find pipis there! :D  There was an absolutely stunning sunset. I'm still in awe - it was breathtaking. *o*

(I didn't think I'd post that many photos... but it was really pretty!! *o*)

One of the major attractions of Port Stephens are it's sand dunes. Massive, epic sand dunes + people plus stuff = SAND DUNING. Especially fun if said stuff are sleds. :D (Or are they boards... whatever. They looked like skateboards with no wheels.) That's reeeeaally fun - you HAVE to do that if you ever go up there!

On the way home that afternoon, we stopped by at Terrigal, about an hour or so north of Sydney on Australia's Central Coast. Lunch yay! But you know what we found?

Dippin' Dots! Look it up - they're little balls of icecream!! :D
Bubblegum on the left, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough on the right (moine!)

After a trip down south to Kiama the night before (and some epic games of ping pong and air hockey), we were all settled in our family friend's house in Kiama. Despite looking rather overcast, and raining (D:), the weather actually cleared up, and by noon, it was a beautiful day! [pictures coming soon! :(]

I don't even remember, it was that long ago. LOL. We had a little drama - my cousin was in an incredible amount of pain, so we were all fretting for him :/ He was fine after a bit of medication and after a few hours it seemed like nothing was ever wrong. Until he went to hospital again later that night. Lulz, poor kid. Anyways, it was nice to be home ^_^

Stay tuned - I'll write something else soon. I promise. :3
