9 weeks to go...

... Sorry. It's just that I'm very good at procrastinating... But who isn't?! :P

Anyways... *returns to writing post 6 hours later*
Procrastinating, huh? -.-

Yeah... So I've been meaning to write something... about that Percussion Workshop I did at the Con the other day. Lots of people have been asking me "How was it?!", "What did you do?", and of course, "What did you learn?"... My answers to those questions: good, stuff, and I don't know... o_O

Seriously. When I look back at it, I can't really tell what I have learnt... If I did learn anything, it obviously didn't make a massive impact on me...

At least I can say what we did do... we did an African drumming session, a (fairly basic) tuned percussion session, and a... drumming technique session. Those were all on the first day (Thursday).

On Friday, we pretty much did the same thing as we did the previous day. However, this wasn't because the workshop holders ran out of material to teach - it was because we had to rehearse for the CONCERT! that was going to be held at 4:30. On Friday. Yeah, we stressed. A bit... Healthily. (Y)

Here's one of the videos, if you're interested. The rest are on my channel (cassandeRAWR)

My personal favourite, "La More Sigh". ^^

So yes. That was basically it.


We've been back at school for just under a week now, and most of us wish it was the holidays again... which don't come around for another 9 weeks. We also realised that we have 9 weeks (+holidays) until our (dun dun dun!)...
So yeah. Then we're screwed. It's also the last term that the Year 12s will be with us :(. But it also means that the Year 12 muck up days are coming!! :D I love seeing what they come up with, especially in the Mock Assembly, where they do skits and stuff... with some kind of general plot line in the background. Yay!

Anyways... I feel like I should add something, but I don't know what else to add...

Oh yes! Have you seen HP7 yet? I only got around to seeing it on Saturday (the 24th). The thing is, there were only a handful of people who hadn't seen the movie... You see, the movie has only been out for 1.5 weeks, and pretty much everyone has seen it. It's amazing. Anyways, if you have seen it, what did you think? Personally, it was alright, but not as spectacular as it could have been... I liked Part 1 more. :/

Edit (25/7):
 Omg. I can't believe I forgot this!!

That's right. "UNICORN-batter". LOOOOOOOL.

Yay, I'm carbon... average?

Well... Neutral = middle = average. There you go,

So... as I was browsing through one of the blogs I'm following ( if you're interested), I found a cool little badge at the bottom of their blog:


Since I'm a lazy bugger, here's an excerpt from the website! -

One Blog - One Tree
“My blog is carbon neutral” is an initiative, originally started in Germany by the “Make it Green” programme, that has the goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. We plant a tree for your blog and thereby neutralise your blog’s carbon footprint for the next 50 years! Everyone can make a small contribution to the environment. Every tree counts!

So there. If you've got a blog, make it carbon neutral average! :D

Sorry about this lack-of-content post... Unless you'd prefer it that way! :O Please tell me if you do... Anyways, I should be posting something else up tomorrow, and if not, on Saturday... and if not, well... You're just going to have to wait, aren't you? :P

Would you like a Post-it Note for that?

(What is it, baby season or something? :L)

It's another of my friends birthday! And yes, I have more than two friends = zomg amazing!

This friend is, I'd say, has got to be one of the kindest, most thoughtful, smartest and loveliest people I know. That's not even an exaggeration. She's always concerned with everybody else, and she's always willing to listen and help out (as far as I know :P).

I get to spend heaps of time with her, namely ext. maths, bio, chem and music, and in this time, she has proven to be one of the best people to be friends with. I can't even name half of the things she's done not just for me, but for everyone who gets the honour of being this girls friend. Seriously. I don't know what kind of world we would be in without her lame jokes (that polar bear one was from her! :P). Which reminds me, I found another one:
"Hey, know any good jokes about sodium?" "Na."
Thank you, Facebook. (Click teh joke for the group page to like it.)

Anyways, we (a bunch of her friends) pulled together some money and we bought a box of various goodies. Like post-it notes, because the friend in question has quite the collection... :L. There was also a plushie, some cosmetics, and of course, a jar of Nutella. Naturally.

So there we go. Like always, a picture must included, so what's better than a birthday message? A birthday message on a post-it note? No. A birthday message on a DOMO post-it note. TRIPLE WIN!
(At the bottom: "Domo says so! XD". 'Cause
I know my handwriting is atrocious. :L)

Heh... Happy birthday again, Vivian! <3

Happy Birth-

Well... It's another of my friend's birthday! Yes, I have more than one friend.

This friend is a special friend indeed - she is the youngest of our group (as far as I know, anyways... o_O). She is also the friend who didn't notice us and walked straight past... (this Monday lunch). Aaaaanyways, her birthday! Sadly, she wasn't allowed to have a party, but she's allowed to go to other people's parties... So we're going to have a party for... Sylvia when we get back to school! Or something like that...

So yeah. 

Here's something for you! 

Click pl0x. Enjoy!

That's my present for you. For now... *shifty*

Cass :D

Yes, that was a thinly veiled adaptation of a Lady Gaga song. Kill me now - it's too early in the morning.

Anywho, I went to Canberra today! Yesterday... Bear with me, it's 1:36am. :D

Haha, bears. Chem joke!: What kind of bears dissolve in water?

Answer: Polar Bears! Har-de-ha-ha. Sorry. I love lame/nerdy/bad/hilarious jokes. Absolutely LOVE them.


Anyhow... Canberra. We left Sydney at 6:50am or something... Hence, sunrise! Except we were driving heading west... >_>

7:05am, heading west.

We went up there to get my dad's passport done (he doesn't have an Australian passport). In order to get this done, we had to go to the Malaysian Embassy. If you ever go to Canberra, check out the embassies! They're really cool! Seriously! We drove around for 10 minutes just looking at them all! The Egyptian Embassy had a sculpture of the Sphinx in it!! :D

So yeah. While we waited for the passport to be processed, my parents dropped my sister and I off at Questacon. YAY! :D For those who don't know, Questacon is Australia's National Science and Technology Centre. Or something like it. Anyways, they have these galleries with different interactive displays. Fun! We were there for... four hours? I'm not sure now... Too much science-y goodness! I'm sure a lot of you have been there, but years ago. I think in order to truly appreciate the minds that put such a wonderful display together, you need to be a) old, and b) willing to stop, read and understand what all the signs are saying. It's pretty cool. We should go there for some science excursion. :D

Questacon. It's looks so... new. :D

And that was pretty much our day. Oh yeah, we bought shirts from Questacon. Really nerdy shirts. Like a periodic table... LOL.

And guys! Goulbourn McDonald's has changed! You know... the Macca's on the way to Canberra! The one everyone stops at!

ZOMG, shiny!

Strawberries and (ice)cream

Today's the official first day of the holidays! It is AMAZING. Omg. You would not believe how much work I have(n't) done. But then again, it's probably the same with everyone else... :P

Seeing as it was the first day, my sister and I decided to get super creative with our lunch! Yay! We ate leftovers.

We also had some strawberries that needed eating, so we did what one would naturally do - cover them with chocolate! Yay!

Of course, things don't go quite according to plan most of the time. We tried to melt our first batch of chocolate over a pot of boiling water (like the pros...?). We failed. I didn't believe that chocolate could burn... I was wrong. We ended up just microwaving the chocolate (Y). Still fun though! As you can see from the pictures, I only did two of the strawberries... Take your guesses! (Hint: they're the reeeally ugly ones. :P)

After using our bowl of chocolate and realising that we had quite a few strawberries left, we decided to just cut the damn things up and throw them in a bowl of icecream. Like anyone else would. :P

Strawberries with icecream~ Who could say no?

I can tell this is just the beginning of many other culinary adventures in our household to take place in the next two weeks... ;D


Oh yeah guys! I remembered the other day that I never did reveal what colour my nail polish was... LOL. (This post right here, if you want to check it out). For anyone that cared, it was called Mango Mango. As if that wasn't obvious at all... :P

School's out!

Heck yeah!

So. If you haven't figured it out yet, today was the last day of Term 2. I must say it's been pretty busy, with various camps, excursions, tests, Monday lunches and everything in between! Haha. I'd just like to put it out there by thanking everyone I've seen/talked to/waved at/tripped over this term - it wouldn't have been the same without you!

Now we (my friends and I) have one term of our preliminary HSC course to go, and it's coming down to the wire. Or something like it. It's crunch time! I think now's the time to adjust our mindsets and attitudes towards work. Well. Maybe after the holidays. I don't know. All I know that if I continue working at the rate I'm going now, I'm absolutely screwed in Year 12. D:

Anyways, H O L I D A Y S ! :D
Today was a great day to end the term on. (Maybe that was because it was the last day...) Anywhooo... Yes. It was fun. 

What we did today:
  • Ancient: Continued watching some video on the scandals of the Emperors of Rome. They were naughty back then! :O
  • Double Bio: More videos, then looking at pictures of mitosis-ing cells on the net because we were too lazy to go look through real microscopes. I love our bio teacher. :')
  • Chem: Making molecules of water and stuff out of those atom ball thingys! Yay! That was funny. :D
  • Double Music: Good, as usual. Better, seeing as we had a sub and we could kinda do whatever we wanted... Kinda. :P
  • Lunch: EPIC LOLS. Half of us got married/engaged/dated the same person by being given rings made from jelly snakes. It was beautiful. We also made some lovely music. Come on, who wouldn't sing along to Accidentally in Love?! Especially when you did Year 7 music at our school... :'D
  • Maths: Still LOL - resulting high from said epic lunch.
"Oooh, let's make words! ...RePo! You know, as in repo man!"

Our beautiful rings of luuurve~ <3

So there you go. My day in a nutshell. Filled with nuts. Figurative and literal. :P

Happy Holidays, everybody! :D
