And I was also going to write something to commemorate the last day of our holidays - which is actually my last day of Summer holidays ever... But yeah. LOL. Hehehe... ^^"
*a week later*
Goshdarnit, I need to stop doing that! >:(
So now Australia day was 6 days ago... but it's still Chinese New Year! :D
Now where do I begin...?
1. Chinese New Year
So Chinese New Year was on last Monday, the 23rd. Since this is Australia, there's no public holiday, unlike many Asian countries where they (apparently) have a whole week off. Anywho, our parents both took days off, and we went to celebrate the new year first with a trip to the optometrist! Yay! That was all good, even though we were in there for almost an hour LOL (he was quite a chatty fellow). After that, hung around the city for a bit, and watch le traditional Lion Dancing yay! We were at Market City (basically Chinatown) and yeah. It wasn't actually lion dancing... It was lion pole
|Dat ass. LOL|
|Ohai dere, scroll. 8D|
|"I can see everything!"|
(loljk I don't know what that says...)
|Le competitors... We waited over half an |
hour for that... after the first ones (above).
2. Australia Day
Okay, so you might have guessed it, but I'm not exactly what foreigners would think of when you say "Australian". But that doesn't mean we don't care!
Actually, the best part of Australia Day is the public holiday that comes with it... LOL.
And also free tattoos, apparently.
We went to Officeworks the day before A.D, and they gave us a bunch of Australian Flag tattoos. Ten, to be exact. So we being the creative and bored individuals we were, my sister and I decided to put a flag on each cheek before we went to bed, with the hopes that someone (preferably a parent) would see us in the morning and freak out. :D
Of course, that didn't happen, but oh well. We did get one remark from my mum; something along the lines of "You crazy girls"... Like they say, mother knows best. :P
Unfortunately though, I didn't think to take a photo... so yeah. Sorry! You can just imagine it :D
3. The Holidays D:
It's Wednesday now, and I've had three days of school. Needless to say, the holidays are, and will always be sorely missed, but even more so as we, Year 12 2012, (continue to) embark on our epic journey towards the HSC. New timetables, new
Which reminds me. The Cinnamon Challenge. Let's just say that anyone who can do it without choking/crying/swearing/dying will have my eternal respect. Which so far, is only one person. What is this?!, I hear you exclaim. Well, never fear! Here is your very own guide to The Cinnamon Challenge, by yours truly.
The Cinnamon Challenge
death powdercinnamon. (Not the cinnamon sugar - that's too yummy.)
- Find a spoon. A clean one, if possible.
- Pour cinnamon onto spoon. There should be a small hill on said spoon, otherwise
you're a wussit doesn't count.
- Put the spoon/cinnamon in your mouth, and take the spoon out. DON'T SWALLOW. Yet. Hold it for 10 seconds.
- Once your 10 seconds is up, try to swallow that
Note: It's okay to spit it out. Seriously. I'd probably get a drink or something, too. ^^"
Congratulations! :D If you actually did this, I applaud you. No. I'd actually physically brohoof you, cause you're that awesome. (And a bit of an idiot...).
But it's okay! I've done it! I think I snorted half of the cinnamon out of my nose when I coughed... But at least it looked cool! I quote my friends:
"Cass is a dragon!" - various peopleAnd of course we got weird looks from the Year 7s... on their very first day of high school... But one day, they'll look back on it, and think: "Just wtf really happened?!" But in their hearts, they'll know it was awesome. :D
So there we go! I'm really, really, really sorry about this super duper irregular/infrequent blogging :(
Also, Happy Birthday Anqid! Here's your picture :D
|Just look at that creepy smile! :D|
I kid, I kid, you know we all love you ^3^
And as always, don't forget to be awesome! AJ, out!
