It’s My Party

You’re throwing a party – for you! Tell us about the food, drink, events, and party favours you’ll have for your event of a lifetime. Use any theme you like – it’s *your* party!

I think parties are supposed to be my ‘thing’, considering the fact that I am currently a teenager. But to be honest, I really hate parties. I hate being forced to socialise with people who I really do not want to know, I hate having to be nice and friendly to everyone, I hate all the super loud generic pop music. The only thing I remotely like about parties is that it’s an excuse to eat really unhealthy food and not do anything productive.

But nevertheless, here is what my ‘ideal’ party would consist of.

As I am sure I have mentioned multiple times, I have some very unhealthy obsessions with various books and TV shows, namely Harry Potter, Sherlock, Marvel and Doctor Who.

So what I would like to be able to do is have all of this fandom-themed decorations, an unlimited supply of food, loads of nice things to watch, and perhaps a few actors from those said shows. (*cough* Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch.)

Actually, most of that just sounds like my ideal day.

But actually, I have recently discovered a weakness for extremely fancy events, like the whole long evening dresses with hair done up and fancy venues with wine and expensive food. Although those would be extremely painful on a daily basis.

In conclusion though, I would still have completely nothing against the idea of just sitting at home with a bunch of close friends and pizza marathoning some TV show.

The Wanderer

Tell us about the top five places you’ve always wanted to visit. GO!

Well, I am pretty sure this topic is supposed to be one that is taken seriously, in other words a list of places that are NOT fictional and one could actually go to. But as ever, my mind is simply not wired that way, so I shall make two separate lists (because I like lists.)

Fictional Places:

  1. Hogwarts. I mean, come on. Out of the people who have grown up with the series and waited for the movies to come out, who doesn’t want to go and enter the magical world of moving staircases and dragons and Quidditch? Plus the library alone would be just amazing.
  2. Asgard. The beautiful buildings and scenery, not to mention two extremely attractive Norse gods. Enough said.
  3. The inside of a TARDIS. Pretty much self-explanatory. Again, who doesn’t want to travel through all of time and space with the Doctor?
  4. The Seven Kingdoms. I know, I know. Endless bloodshed and fighting and people dying. But I still think it would be fascinating to enter that world and just experience everything firsthand. Although I’m not sure how long I’d survive.
  5. Middle Earth. Well technically, being in New Zealand probably already counts. But where are all of the elves and hobbits and dwarves?

Real-life Places I could actually go to one day:

  1. Comic-Con. I’m not even going to try explain how much this would mean to me. It would be like the equivalent of all my dreams coming true at one time in the one place multiplied by an unimaginable amount.
  2. The Sherlock Holmes museum in London. Like, actually to have the opportunity to go to 221B. Mind-blown.
  3. The Wizard World of Harry Potter. Again, pretty self-explanatory. Plus you get to actually try Butterbeer and get a wand.
  4. Greece and Rome. Just to be able to see all the old architecture and the museums and the history behind everything. Same with Egypt.
  5. Anywhere in Japan. I know it’s probably nothing like what you see on Internet or in anime, but I just really want to go there one day and try the food.

Looking back at my list, I have realised how the majority of these are fictional or based around something that is. Which just shows how much I have actually integrated the made-up world of others into mine.

Showdown at Big Sky

How do you handle conflict? Boldly and directly? Or, do you prefer a more subtle approach.

This for me, depends on the people who are involved and how extreme the said conflict is. There are usually two typical reactions from me when dealing with people whom I do not agree with:

  1. Tell myself that they are inferior human beings of no significance and therefore do not deserve me putting in the time and effort in stating the obvious to prove them wrong. 
  2. Plan out and correctly structure an entire argument in my mind describing the various points which they are definitely wrong and I am definitely right whilst acknowledging some counterpoints and destroying them, and then say all of this in one breath speaking as fast as I possibly can in order to lessen the amount of time where I have to speak and all attention is focussed on me.

I’m not sure whether these classify as either boldly or subtly, but whilst I do want to be direct the majority of the time, I tend to lengthen everything I say and think greatly, and try not to use contractions whenever possible. I also find it very, very hard to be ‘straight to the point,’ as proven in many situations. An example of the first thing that comes to mind right now was when (and I’m laughing whilst I think of this) my friends decided to randomly talk about me to a person who I did not know at all on their Facebook. This infuriated me a lot at the time, and therefore I spent about an hour writing an entire essay to both my friends and that person describing the situation and how much I hated and wanted to stab them all with a fork. It was only afterwards that my other friend pointed out I could have just explained everything in one sentence.

So I guess I am the more subtle approach sort of person, who drags on something and takes a very long time to get what I want to say across.

(I have started realising my awful tendency to join phrases together and write super long sentences which you need to either read really fast, or take an awkward breath/stop halfway…)

Dust in the Wind

Have you made your bucket list? Now’s the time — write about the things you want to do and see before you become dust in the wind.

I waited a while before doing this, because there was a time where I was obsessed with the idea of leaving behind a mark and having a fulfilling life before dying. Actually, no, that’s a lie. One of the main things I constantly think about are ways which I can ensure I die at the right time. The ‘right’ time being on my own terms: because I am 100% ready to leave this world.

This list is about to get very, very long, and I have included many things from a bucket list I made a few years ago, some of which I have already done. They range from insanely deep, to insanely improbable. Many of these are completely stupid and just things I want to actually do one day. As for the others, I am pretty certain they will never, ever be able to be achieved (Possibly because they are merely in the mind.). But far-fetched as they seem, we’ve all been constantly taught to dream, right?

So here goes (in no particular order) a list of things I want to do one day:

  • Finish all the books on my constantly-increasing to-read list
  • Meet an author of one of my favourite books
  • Meet someone from BBC Sherlock
  • Meet someone from one of my favourite TV show/movies
  • Finish a 10,000 word fanfic
  • Write and publish a novel
  • Compose a song with lyrics, chords, bass lines etc.
  • Dye my hair purple
  • Understand the meaning of having a best friend
  • Fall in love
  • Jump off a cliff
  • Go up on a downwards escalator or vice-versa
  • Stared in the face of death
  • Learn Latin
  • Learn Greek
  • Go to a pop concert
  • Be somewhat normal
  • Be fluent in multiple languages
  • Write a Tumblr theme from scratch
  • Learn how to put on makeup properly
  • Go to England
  • Own a house which I am proud of
  • Have one of those floor-to-ceiling libraries with a secret room
  • Have a grand staircases like in the Titanic and Hogwarts
  • Be proud of myself
  • Be able to look back and not regret everything
  • Be satisfied in life
  • Not hate the world
  • Write a will
  • And a suicide note. Just in case
  • Die when I want to
  • Be remembered
  • Go to a nice university
  • Travel somewhere with my best friend
  • Audition for some TV show
  • Kiss in the rain
  • Go to Starbucks
  • Go to every nice restaurant in my current town
  • Go to someone nice’s wedding
  • Stop being ‘depressed’
  • Learn archery
  • And fencing
  • Let people in
  • Go to a movie premier
  • Not lose touch of people who matter
  • Have enough money to be able to have the life I want
  • Learn the guitar
  • Learn the drums
  • Stop hating myself
  • Never swear
  • Or use incorrect grammar and spelling purposely
  • Control emotions and tears
  • Stop regretting stuff
  • Learn to make every moment in my life mean something
  • Leave something behind in this world

These are all I can think of for the present. I may or may not add more later; it really depends on whether I can be bothered or not!

Saturday Night

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT! What’s your favorite way to spend Saturday night?

This topic amused me greatly, because I am currently sitting in bed on a Saturday night blogging about what I do on Saturday nights. Although technically speaking, it is currently past midnight where I am so it is Sunday morning, but let’s just not go there.

So what is my favourite way of spending Saturday nights?

As sad as it seems, I actually love it when I can just spend an entire evening sitting alone in my room with a huge stash of food and a stack of books to read, really good music, fast Internet, or loads of episodes of some show to marathon. And to be able to just eat what I want to without worrying about how disgustingly unhealthy I am and how I am going to hate myself later, and to read or blog or watch shows without thinking about the amount work I still have to do and should technically be doing, and how unproductive and lazy I am and how it’s not surprising I failed all of my exams last year. Oh, and also not worry about my lack of sleep and how screwed up my sleeping pattern is.

In conclusion, I haven’t ever had a ‘favourite’ Saturday night. But a girl can dream, right?
