Harry Potter and the octopus

So octopuses (octopi? ) are amazing, probably the best animal ever. They're massive, can squeeze through a hole the size of a tennis ball, and have their own langauge. Crazy, right?

I just thought I'd share that little burst of octopus love,

Also! Harry Potter comes out next week! I'm excited. The last film was kind of a let down but hopefully this one will be better, or at least not as crap. Personally, I think the films would all be way better if Harry and Ginny were cut out completely and the whole thing was just a big montage of Fred and George, and maybe Ron. That's probably just me though...

Seeing as this entry just seems to be a collection of irrelevant information, heres a video:

I was never a huge fan of MCR back when every other 14 year old seemed to be (it's def still all about fall out boy haha) but I've always listened to them a bit every now and then, and I'm now in love with their new song.
I feel 14 now, I should go cut my fringe over my eyes and wear way too much makeup all over again.

Being happy and all that jazz

Hi! I know it's been a while but I can explain, well, I can make excuses. The first one is that the people who see this blog are mainly the people I see basically every day anyway, so updating them on my rather boring week via blogging seems a bit pointless. The other, more valid excuse is that it's been a really crappy week and I didn't want to write some self indulgent whiney entry going on about how everything and everyone is screwing me over...I tend to get like that when I'm tired and on a low haha.
But yeah. This morning I woke up and decided to keep it positive for the day; I thought about what good reasons I had to be upset at all.
The answer: none.
Any reasons I did have were petty, or the kind that no one else would even care about, or not even directly to do with me but other peoples drama. after thinking through all of them I came up with my final reason which was 'the weathers really nasty this week' and even I can admit blaming my bad mood on the colour of the sky is a bit pathetic.
Now I don't want this blog to turn into a big sap fest or anything, but I think people would be a lot happier, especially at our age, if we put our problems into perspective. I don't just mean, comparing our problems to people who have bigger/real ones, though that's probably a good idea as well, but imagining our lives 5 years from now.
In 5 years, will your problem matter anymore? Will you even remember it? I know some of the biggest dramas/arguments I had in september , I barely remember anymore. They certainly don't matter to me now.
If your problems are with a certain other person, like the majority of mine seem to be, I try to remind myself that if they matter enough, arguments and grudges will usually sort themselves out over time. If they don't, the person probably wasn't worth your time in the first place.

Anyway! That's enough of my unqualified therapy attempts :). I have essays to write, meaning I have to give myself at least 3 hours or so of putting off-time, and I need to get the kettle boiling to prepare for that.

 This is what I did a few weeks ago when I was in a simularily bad mood haha, shut up I'm lame but I like it even so. I have bits and pieces laying around in my room/badly sellotaped the the walls so I decided to do something with it all and made a big wall collage! (the idea was shamelessly copied from someone elses I saw, btw...). It makes me happy to look at and glad I did something productive instead of laying around feeling sorry for myself.
...pointless information, maybe, but it ties with this carefully 'themed' blog entry in that, if you're feeling crap, do something that cheers you up :)
