How Embarrassing...

Well, I knew it wouldn't be long before I'd have an embarrassantee post.

Except this time it really wasn't my fault.

We were all watching the film, Dead Man Walking as a class at school because it is our movie for our Film Study section this year. For those of you who don't know about it, Dead Man Walking is basically about a guy who rapes and murders two teenagers and is put in jail and on death row. Then he gets this nun to try help him prove he is "innocent". She tries but fails and she then turns into his spiritual adviser to prepare him for when he is killed by the state through a lethal injection.

So, it is a very dramatic film. I'm not complaining because I'm all for drama and all. Except, towards the end they show him being strapped to the table with the drip going in and the ..erm.. lethalness slowly going through the pipe. And there's a whole audience watching him die.
Then they show, between all of this, him and this other guy (who didn't get sentenced because he was found not guilty) raping and murdering those two kids..

And obviously my brain was just like, "no guys, no way" because the period ended before we had finished watching him die and I managed to make it out of the class before fainting.

How embarrassing.

Who faints at school after watching a movie?

Well, yeah, apparently I do...

In my defense though, a guy said to me afterwards "it was just a movie, it's not even real you shouldn't take it so seriously" and laughed at me because I fainted. I was still drowsy and just patted him on the head and said "poor, innocent, stupid boy" and sent him on his way. Ze fact is, although it is a movie, it is real. Things like that happen every day and you get ignorant giraffes like that guy who can't see further than the movie.

I think between watching this guy die (even though he was guilty) and then watching those two teenagers being raped and stabbed at the same time just made my subconscious really really upset. Maybe it was having a bad day or something, I don't know.

Oh well, if you feel like a party just rent Dead Man Walking and watch your friends drop like flies, the acting in the movie is tops... Unless you're a fly, like me. Then stay awaaay.

In My Humble Opinion...

So I was very flattered to hear yesterday that a lot of people value my opinion.

Whether "value" means it is of use to people or it is just makes a good form of entertainment is a different story altogether, but beggars can't be choosers.

So my friends drew up a list of things they wanted my opinion on, and, considering they found it to be very charming, I thought I should share it with you.

Before we get to that though, I would like to post the photo of me and the balloon that I said I would post yesterday.

That balloon was my best friend. 

Back to my opinion :D

Greek Yoghurt: Fabulous. Simply fabulous. Not only is it exotic but it tastes like a rainbow. 

Rhinos: I prefer the term Unicorn. Also a majestic creature with a zest for life. If I could keep one in my garden I would most definitely. 

Trees: Almost as majestic as a unicorn yet just as useful. Although, what would make them even more useful is if they gave off Wifi. Can you imagine how many trees would be planted if they gave off Wifi??

Too bad they only give off the oxygen we breathe.. *environmentalist's note*

Tea: If I could live on tea I would. It is like drinking a cup of awesomeness. 

Boys: Shoot them.

Lava lamps: If you ever want to buy me a present, buy me a lava lamp. I will love you forever. 

Books: You should listen to books more than you should listen to your parents.

Spray tan: I would rather be white as a sheet than look like a rotten orange. 

The TV Show Toddlers and Tiaras: It has always been a dream of mine to walk into one of those pageants and sock every mother in the head hoping to knock some sense into them. I would then become the children's fairy godmother and teach them how to play, ride bikes and be children. *peace sign*

I cannot lie, I did enjoy giving my opinion on random things. In fact, I shall give it more often. 

Whether people ask for it or not :p

Ahh happy days :D let me know what you think.

Turns Out I'm Not That Useless at Life After All

Soo it is a week later and I have finally sat on my ass with a cup of tea and worked on my blog.

I think it is ready to be seen in public.

At least I hope it is.

I have had quite ze eventful week and so am very happy because I got to post more than one measly photo on Instagram and looked as if I had a life for a change.

The fabulous thing is that half the things I did was on my bucket list which makes me just that much less useless at life in general. Whoop Whoop.

Became BFFs with a Shark
Having just met Nemo in the tank next door, I was inspired to name him Bruce. Bruce and I have a mutual understanding. We are both deathly afraid of having our whole face in view of the camera.

Well actually I wouldn't have minded having a full-length photo with a shark but I think Bruce's attention span is slightly less than mine and he swam away swiftly after I took this photo and he then rammed into a rock.

I like to think it was by mistake.

Went Zip-Lining

Unfortunately my self-esteem would not let me post a picture of me zip-lining as it was just too funny. Let's just say I'm about as poised and graceful when hanging off a mountain as I am on solid ground. I also looked extremely brave and adventurous when dangling upside down as I was zipping from one platform to the other - everyone was extremely impressed - but between you and me, I had no clue how to keep myself up right.

*Its a bird.... its a plane.... no! It's Tayla flying upside down like a knob*.. My family was very supportive.

Won a Balloon

A less glamorous achievement compared to the above two, but still one for the books nonetheless! Apparently there is quite a fabulous picture of me and the balloon but I haven't managed to get hold of it as yet; so there is a reason for you to come back to this blog at least for the next post :P

Won a Sweet in Maths

I know, I know. This probably seems even less glamorous than winning a balloon, but my Maths teacher came up with the brilliant idea of bribing a class of 17 year olds to do Maths with sweets. The class was so unusually quiet as we all focused on the sums so that we could win a sucker, it was actually adorable.

I won't mention that when the teacher left the class for a second, we all ran out the class and went and hid behind the bathrooms. She found us. I haven't laughed so hard in a while. That's what I love about her, we didn't even get our sweets taken away she just threatened to hit us all over the head with her ruler.

So, all in all, quite an eventful week. I am trying my bestest to spend as much time and effort on my blog as possible but I have to focus on my Maths these days too. There are sweets to be won!

So, until next time,
Baiiiye :)

Oh P.S If you'd like to follow me on Instagram, my name is Lala_withlove . I shall follow you back with great joy.

Soo.. How Ya Doing?

I really do feel like a terrible person..

I know that's not the best way to start a new post on a new blog but I really have to mention this.

The guilt is killing me.
I have abandoned my older blog to move on to "greener pastures", so to speak. Why I wanted to move on to something that is greener I don't know because I don't particularly like the color green, but that is not the point.

I am 17 years old. This is the prime time for self-discovery. These are the days when we try to look passed our pimples and find out who we really are.

So far I have realized a few important facts about myself:

  • I have an attention span the size of half a tea-spoon. 
  • I like Greek Yoghurt. 
So progress is being made!
Sort of.

Anyway, back to ze point of the matter. Due to my pathetic attention span I cannot manage to keep the same blog for more than a year. My style and theme changes way too much and, I have to say I enjoy creating new blogs..

I do feel terrible for starting a new one. However, in my humble opinion, I think this blog will be the bombdiggady for me.

Please do excuse the pathetic excuse for a blog design. I have been falling over myself with school work and have not had time to really sit and work on it.

Thank you for your patience. I just know we are going to be life-long friends. 

Until next time
Baaiye :D
