Now what my blogg is about:
I'm taking up the indieVISUAL journal challenge. It's where you draw every day of 2010. It sounds like a lot fun and good way to improve my drawing skills. I heard about it through charlieissocoollike, and I can't wait to see some of his drawings. I'm not sure if I'll be able to do a drawing ever day of 2010 but I'm going to try and hopefully not give up. I think my drawings should be interesting this ... wait ... next year because there will be a lot of change and I wonder if this will my art. Now all I need to do is find that sketch book I got a couple of months ago for my birthday.
For the indieVISUAL challenge I got a tumblr account http://sophiepieroni.tumblr.com/
So, if you want to check it out, please do. And, just so you know I'm still trying to figure it out. Lol.

So, I'm currently watching the first season of How I Met Your Mother because my friend was talking about it and saying how awesome it is and I had only ever see the end of it when I've been changing channels. I like thus far, I guess its good for a giggle. I'm now also wondering who Ted will end up with because I thought it would be Robin but that's obviously not gonna happen. But enough of TV, I think I might write about my real life.
School has been mental. But I haven't really been paying all that much attention. I know should, and I am gonna start trying harder and stuff, but the thing is I really not that bothered any more. Well, I want to pass maths but that's about it, I'm not bothered about chemistry or physics and I am a little bothered about art but not all that much. I just want school to be done. Last year I was scared at the prospect of leaving school and I didn't want to but now, I can't wait, I'm ready. I mean, I will miss school, I'll miss some of the teachers and some of the people I went to school with but I definitely won't miss getting up early or pretending to like people. I know the last two things I will have do again in my life but not anytime soon. Hopefully.
What I'm going to do once I leave school is another altogether. Even though I've sent away applications to universities, all for chemistry courses, I'm not sure that's what I wan to do. Most of friends know exactly what they want to do, veterinary, engineering, psychology, history. I am seriously thinking about just getting a job in shop or something. I really don't know what I want to do in life all I really know is that I want to go to America wither it's on holiday or forever, that's my dream. And to achieve that I need money and to get money I need a job.
Well, I have been instructed to put up a Christmas tree so that's all I have time write.

On the subject of characters, I'm so happy that Denise is still in the show. She was my favourite intern from season eight. This year's (I was about to interns but they're not) med students are OK, I'm not sure if I like them that much. I don't really like Lucy that much but I've got a feeling she's gonna be one of the main characters this year, what with the day-dreams and internal monologue. The med student I like so far is Drew, mainly because he's kinda like a male Denise. I'm sure all the characters will grow on me but I'm really going to miss the old ones especially JD. But I've still got another four episodes with him before he's gone forever. Sadface.
Anyhoo, I'm gonna go find real people who I can talk to about how much I love scrubs.

So even though I had a pretty shit day today my weekend was good. On Friday night after school I went to the cinema with a friend to see New Moon. I thought it was so freaking hilarious. I mean, the first time you see Edward me and my friend burst out laughing and I know it's not meant to be funny, but it is! My favourite part of the move has to be when Bella, Jacob and Mike go to the cinema, firstly because it's so funny and secondly because it was probably because it was the most true to the book part of the movie. The friend I went to see New Moon with had never read the books and had only see the first movie earlier that day, and we came to the decision that Mike is the best character. So I'm going to design and screen print some Team Mike t-shirts and maybe some bags. 'Cause I'm cool.
I was gonna write something really gross about dead mice but I don't think I will.

The plot. Was freaking amazing. Even though I know about the polar bear and the hatch and whole load of other stuff, including spoilers I read on damn Wikipedia, I was totally on the edge of my seat. I even liked the little flashback/character history bits, which I remember not liking when I attempted to watch Lost when I was 11, back then I was like, "I don't care if Locke was in a wheelchair before just get back to whats happening NOW!" I mean I still don't care that Locke was in a wheelchair, if I'm honest, Locke is my least favourite characters but I'll talk about that later on. Now, the thing with crazy French lady, what was up with that? Admittedly, I was writing an a few essays whilst I watch that episode(s) so I wasn't sure what was going on, but that didn't stop me from noticing she was a crazy lady. She killed, like, her whole team! I mean, did they really need her, what does she do to the plot? Now that I think about it she did talk about The Others, which I guess is a big part of the plot towards the end. Which leads me nicely on to Ethan abducting Claire and Charlie. That was hard time for me because Claire and Charlie are my favourite characters and that Ethan was one creepy bastard. The part of that which upset me the most was when they found Charlie hanged, even though I knew he lived I was still like, "Nooo, don't die!!!" Sadface. But I think the main point of Claire being kidnapped was about The Others, because the French lady knew The Others wanted "the boy" because she heard them whisper and she made two attempts to get the baby, one before it was born and one after. Although it becomes apparent in the finale that "the boy" The Others want is Walt, because he's special. I can't wait to find out what kind of power Walt has. But I'm still left wondering where Ethan came from and if he was with crazy French lady, he must of been but ... ugh, it hurts my head to think of all the possibilities of the relation between her and Ethan and who he was with and how he got there. If only Charlie hadn't killed him.
Characters. I'm gonna try and keep this part shorter than the last but I'm doubtful that will happen. I'm gonna start with Locke since I mentioned I don't like him. The main reason I don't like him is he only really thinks about what he thinks is best for everyone not what actually is. He may have gotten Charlie over his drug addiction but he drugged Boone and tied him up in the jungle. And also, he got to obsessed about the hatch, he only wanted to open because he thought the Island wanted him to, like it was test. I don't know, but I sure as hell wouldn't trust him. Sawyer is an amazingly deep character, I mean his past is so tragic and I love him as a character. He's not my favourite character but he's definitely up there. I like that him and Jack are always fighting, they're like opposites. I don't really have that much else to say about Sawyer but I felt I should mention him. And if I'm honest I don't really Jack, he's always moaning about not wanting to be the leader or hero. Claire and Charlie are so cute and I love both of them so much. I think the way Charlie looks after Claire is so adorable and sweet, and the peanut butter thing, it's a cute overload. I could on like for a bit about those two so I'm gonna stop.A character I'm really growing to like is Jin, at first I thought he was a bit of a prick because he was mean to Sun but he really changed and in an odd sort of way I think he's kind of attractive, so yeah. There's just too much to say about all of the characters. They all work so well with each other, it's amazing. I don't think I could even rank them. I would say more but I think I'll leave it there, I could go on forever.
Any way, one of my favourite parts of the first season was the montage in the last episode when you saw them all getting on the plane and taking their seats, I don't know why I liked it so much, maybe because it showed the start of their journey together or I think how connected they all are, how that's where all their stories meet. Hope that makes some sort of sense. But yeah, I'm totally ready for season 2, I really want to know what happens. Please don't spoil it for me though.

But more like things like, I went to dentists today. Yeah, super fun. So I had some toothache and I was all like, "oh no,I'm gonna need a filling!" Insert sadface here. But it turned out it wasn't a cavity, it was just my gum was inflamed cause I had a build up of tartar or whatever. I know that makes it sound as though I don't brush my teeth but I do! Anyway, my dentist was all like, "I think you should start flossing now, don't you?" I should point out that she still had her hand in my mouth and was grinding away the tartar, so I was like, I can't talk so I thought that I would nod, not really a good idea when someone has a drill in your mouth. When I went rinse my mouth I saw blood! I seriously think my dentist hates me. I looked tartar up on wikipediea and there was really gross picture. Don't look it up.
Another thing in my life is that I nothing to read at the moment. I really want more of John Green's books but living in the UK it's hard to find them so I'm getting some for Christmas. Until then I've raid my mum's book shelves and I'm now reading The Catcher In The Rye. So far it's OK, I know it's meant to be really great but I'm not sure. I mean I'm not that far into it so it should hopefully pick up with the pace. I feel I should read more classic novels rather than all the teen fiction I read at the moment. I don't really like classic novels though, mainly because they're so old fashioned and its not my type of thing but I don't really want to been seen as or put in to the group of teenage girls who love Twilight, because for starters I hate, well more dislike, Twilight and I'm not that sort of person. I am cultured. I basically want to extend the range of books I read. I want to read Wuthring Heights but my mum doesn't have it, which shocked me, it's her type of book and the only copy I saw in Borders had "Bella and Edward's favourite book" printed on the cover, again being dumped in with the Twi-hards. But right now my goal is just to finish The Catcher In The Rye.
I kinda feel as though I've said "but" too many times in this blog and its really annoying but (grr) I can't think of any other of saying it. So far I have said the B word twelve times! It's ridicules, I really need to extend my vocabulary, bad.
So, yeah, that's it, I think. That's all that's happened in my life recently. I went to the dentist and I'm reading a book. I love life. By the way, I love short sentences. Just so you know.

I've just started watching LOST, I'm starting from season 1 again. I remember watching it when it first came out and being totally confused and giving up. Having said that I was about ten or something. I bought the season 1 box set for only £20, bargain! Anyway I'm really enjoying it, I think my favourite character has to be Charlie not only is he really cute but he's funny, I also like Hurley, I don't know why, he's just an amazing character. I am watching it right now so I feel this blog might be a bit disjointed and kinda ... I dunno I've lost my train of thought. I'll perhaps post a blog all about LOST once I've finished the first season.
Also TV related, Doctor Who was on last night. It was freaking amazing! And I'm not ashamed to say that I was genuinely scared, especially of Maggie when she was locked up, I think it was the look in her eyes. The only bit of the episode I didn't like was when The Doctor went a little mental and broke the time rules, it up set me. But I'm really looking forward to the Christmas special, I love the little teasers at the end. But I got really excited when I saw Donna, I was like "ZOMG!!! No way!! She'll die if she ....." You know and so on until my mum told me to shut up. I also got a text from my friend Bex and I have to say she was why more excited, she was already coming up with theories about whats gonna happen and about The Doctors regenerations and Donna.
Anyway I'm gonna round up here. Before I ramble any more. So goodbye.

I can't believe I forgot to blog about my halloween. It was amazing, I had so much fun at the school party/disco. Everyone had great costumes and my friends and me danced like losers. My costume was a bit obscure so most people had to ask who I was but that was OK but I was a bit scared because I was the only person there covered in fake blood. It annoys me that nowadays halloween is about who can wear the shortest skirt, not about scary monsters or zombies. But what can I do about that? Any way here's a photo I took on my phone before I left for the party/disco:
I was really pleased with how the blood came out but it started to peel and flake off in the middle of the night, gutted. A lot of people said it was really good and was really happy when people guessed that I had been "Sylar-ed". I just made that word up there, no one said "Sylar-ed", most people asked if I was Clarie and I just said, "Sure, why not." I wasn't Claire, for starters I'm not blond and I am most definitely not a cheerleader. I did write "SAVE THE CHEERLEADER SAVE THE WORLD", on the back of my t-shirt, though.
Well, I've got a ton of work to do for school so I'm gonna get on with that and then watch Ugly Betty. Byeeee.

Life sucks, mainly because of the Comic-Con thing but also because I have toothache, I woke up with it on Monday and I still haven't phoned the dentist's because I kept forgetting and because I'm scared they're gonna pull my tooth out. Eek. But I'm going to make my self phone on the way home from school tomorrow and try to get an appointment first thing on Friday. I just hope my mum doesn't find out, cause she's really gonna kill me this time, I'm always getting fillings. It really hurts right now.
I had an A/B test today in maths and really hope I passed it because the whole time I was thinking about Comic-Con. I reckon I'll have done OK in it but I can't fail, if I fail it means I'll have to drop maths and if I drop maths that means I can't go university and I don't know what I'll do if I don't go to uni. Gasp. Actually that pretty much goes for all my subjects. And my plan if don't get into uni is to stay at home and become a hermit, and if it were possible grow a beard. Or go to collage. You know, one of the two. If I went to collage though I don't think I would go to do chemistry, I think I might do something like special effects make-up or something fun like that.
School Halloween party/disco tomorrow. Yay.
Also, just a side note, I think I say "I" too much in my blog and it bugs me and I am try to think of better ways to say things other than, "I did..." or something like that.

School today was good, I pretty much sat around and did nothing. My chemistry teacher has been off, which is very unusual he's normally always in, so that meant I had a double period of doing nothing, since we didn't get a sub. Most of my chemistry class went to the library but me ad my friends just stayed in the class and talked and I realised I forgot my keys. During interval my group of friends organised our Secret Santa thing... I know its early to be thinking about Christmas but we like to be organised. It took us a while to do, you know pulling names out of hat and making sure its not your own name or the person you had last year, but we manged it. I'm happy with who I got but now that I think about it I have no idea what to get her. Eek.
After interval I had a free period, which we're meant to use to study but I spent trying to phone my mum (and ending up texting her) and listening to my iPod, 'cause I'm cool. Not really. I had another three other classes today but nothing really happened in them worth mentioning to be honest.
So after I went down town to get keys of my mum I came home and went on blogtv to watch charlieissocoollike because they were going to play the ChartJakers song for the first time but because I had to go into town I missed the start when they played the song but I stuck around to watch the rest and then they played it at the end. It was better than I thought it would be, so I'm gonna buy it when it comes out, well I was gonna buy it anyway. I hope it gets to number 1, it'll be hard but I think if even gets in the charts that would incredible, especially for something from the Internet.
Anyway got to go now. byeee.

Also, completely unrelated to anything I haven't been doing, I had a dream with Alex Carpenter from The Remus Lupins in it, it was so weird but a good weird, and then I woke up. Actually I had I pretty weird dream last night as well, me and my friend Tasha and her little sister Sianan were in like this really scabby caravan, which was parked on top of a car (yeah, on top) and then Sianan started to rock the caravan and it fell off of the car and everything in the it fell on top of her and she broke her arm. It was a pretty pointless dream I know, I think there may of been something about skateboards but I'm not too sure if it was that dream or another one.
If I made any mistakes or if anything doesn't make sense I was in a rush, sorry.
K, well I'm gonna go now, byeeeee.
Monday, 5 October 2009
Although, actually I have been a rush recently to finish my UCAS application and make all my choices for what courses I want to do at uni. I was only gonna go for three course but them my guidance teacher totally bullied me into making five, well she didn't really bully me, I'm just saying that. I hope I get into uni, I'm actually kinda scared I won't get in, I don't think I'm smart enough. Mind you I do think I'm smarter than some people at school in my year but that's only really because they think they know everything and that they think they're better that everyone. I'm pretty sure everyone know at least one person like that.
Also, I'm in a bit of pickle, Friday at school is Pink Day, where everyone wears something pink and pays a £1 and the money goes to breast cancer research. Well my pickle is that I have no idea what to wear. Do I wear my pink tutu again like last year or do I let Tasha talk me into wearing my pj's to school? Or I could just wear a pink t-shirt. Boring, I know but I can't really think of anything else. I think I have pink tights somewhere, hmmmm?
Oh well, I let you know how it goes, I may put photos up. Cya.
Thursday, 1 October 2009
So school has been a drag. I've been in the art dept. all the time these past two days or so working non-stop trying to finish my investigation which I have nothing for, so I've been going up at lunch then forgetting to have something to so having to stuff my face on the way to my next class five minutes after the bell has gone.
Anyway you may have noticed the title of this blog. There is a story behind it but first I'd like to clarify that I did not say that. So it was Wednesday morning, first period, I had a free period as most of my friend and some other 6th years and we were all in the common room. Now I don't know why someone brought them in but someone had brought in wax strips. Yup, wax strips. So the girls (whom I'm not friends with) decided to wax Jacobs eyebrows (not friends with him either). This went ok, Jacob only saying it hurt a little, but then Jaime , how is head boy by the way, took one of the big was strips and put it on Jacobs leg. . . the wrong way. And as all girls know once its on, it has to come off. This caused Jacob to scream, scream, scream. It. Was. Hilarious. I would pay to see him in pain and this was for free. Bargain! No, I'm jokin but it was funny. The next thing Mr Scott (head of our year) is the common room seeing what the noise was all about because he could hear the screaming all the way up maths. So the story is re-told, blah, blah, blah and then some one tells Mr Scott to feel how smooth Jacob's leg is now and he say, and I quote "as there's always someone with a camera, I'm not going to touch his leg". That made my day. Now I realise that reading my re-telling of the story my be really boring, I'm really awful at telling stories they're never as funny as when it actually happens or when someone else tells it.
Also remember I was complaining about ordering that book and it hadn't come? It came!! I'm so happy.
I'm gonna go now Scrubs is on and I like the end of this episode so I want to watch it in all its glory. That means I haven't cheacked this for mistakes or anything.
Tuesday, 29 September 2009
I don't know how I've manged to go this far with out killing my physics teacher. Honestly, he's the worst teacher I've ever had, and last year I thought I had the worst teacher for physics. So I'm now teaching myself physics because I don't want to fail again, if I didn't need it to get in to uni I would drop it.
Another thing going on at school is everyone is sorting out their prom dates. Prom isn't till June. I don't have date, I was going to ask my friend Sammy to prom cause she's left school but I don't really think it's her sort of thing. So I think I'm gonna be one of the date-less losers, unless one the guys who would be date-less losers ask me. But to be honest I don't see the rush prom is still ... (stops to count) ... 8 months away. Another stupid school thing I have to go to is the Halloween party/disco, which is gonna be so lame. Anyway everyone's going on about what their going as and I had an awesome idea, I'm gonna go as Bellatrix LeStrange from Harry Potter, I saw a costume on the interweb somewhere. My friend Fiona is maybe gonna go as the guy from Clockwork Orange, which is such a cool idea.
On a totally unrelated note, Lady Gaga is on TV and she wears some really odd outfits doesn't she? And now Madonna is on. I think she's a little too old to be dancing like that. It's kinda creepy.
Speaking of TV, I spent like an hour something try to find a site to watch the new episode of The Big Bang Theory on and I couldn't. I wish it was out in the UK, hopefully it will be soon I really want to see it. The same for Heroes too, my friend Tasha has seen it and she really wants someone to talk to about it. Another thing that's taking ages to get here is a book I ordered off of Amazon like last Monday or Tuesday, it sucks cause I've got nothing to read just now. Sad face.
Monday, 28 September 2009
My name is Sophie and I am 17 years old. I live in Scotland. I'm still at school and I'm in 6th year, the subjects I'm taking are Higher maths, physics, art and Advanced Higher chemistry. I can't really think of any thing else to say, my mind has gone kinda blank now that try to think of to say . . . Oh I'm a big Harry Potter fan, which is why I think people tend to stay away from me either that or they think I'm a bit weird, I'm not sure but I don't really care what people think of me. Another thing about me is that I love to draw, whenever I can and not that crappy anime you see 14 year olds do all time, no offence meant as I do sometimes dabble in it. I also play guitar, I know I'm not that great at it but i still enjoy it.
I think I've rambled on quite a bit now so I think I'm gonna go now and watch some Scrubs (my fav tv show btw), maybe do some of my maths homework and revise for my chemistry test have tomorrow.
