If there is something that every blog needs, something that mine seems to be sorely lacking, it's some good old fashioned Hollywood/teenage girl bitching. And my target: Matthew Bellamy and Kate Hudson.


Now, don't get me wrong, I think Kate's a great actress, I love her films. However, what gets to me is her relationship with Matthew. The reason for my frustration? I happen to be one of those people who becomes highly obsessed with one thing until it progresses to the point where I begin to take ownership of things that quite obviously will/could never be mine. In this case, my obsession with Muse has lead to my protectiveness over the band members. And don't get me wrong, I'm well aware that this fanatic behaviour is unhealthy and borderline insane, but that's not going to do anything to change the way I feel! It's probably because she is in fact a Hollywood actress, and you hear and see all the time on TV and in magazines about celebrity couples and every single detail of their lives. Not that, in my fanatic mind, I have a problem with knowing every facet of Matt's life, I just don't like how public and "Hollywood" everything has become. I mean, I had no problem at all when he was with his non-famous psychologist girlfriend, Gaia. There was no publicity like there is now! I have nothing against Kate at all. And if she makes Matt happy, then that's all that really matters. Deep down somewhere inside me I actually think they make a cute couple! And when I see pictures of how happy they are together it makes me smile! And seeing Matt out and about with Kates son, Ryder, is just adorable! But still, there's just something that doesn't sit right about the whole thing for me. And honestly, I'm just some stupid crazy teenage girl who should get over things like this that I cannot possible change, nor should I even care about in the first place. So, in saying that, I'm just going to shut up now and stop boring everyone to death with my whining :)

PS. One thing that does make me laugh though is when the newspapers and websites get things wrong. Like captioning a photo with "Mark Bellamy" instead of Matt Bellamy, or referring to the wrong person entirely as the following headline, picture and caption demonstrates.

Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy Share Late Night Out

The 31-year-old beauty spent her time with her musician lover at Ivy Restaurant in London, England on Tuesday, August 31, before heading to The Groucho private members club.

For those who don't know, the man in the picture is Dominic Howard.. Muse's drummer.. lol

I believe in nothing,
Not the end and not the start.
I believe in nothing,
Not the earth and not the stars.
I believe in nothing,
Not the day and not the dark.
I believe in nothing,
But the beating of our hearts.
I believe in nothing,
One hundred suns until we part.
I believe in nothing,
Not in sin and not in God.
I believe in nothing,
Not in peace and not in war.
I believe in nothing,
But the truth and who we are.

Sometimes things happen in life that make you step back and reassess the world from a different perspective. When random and unpredictable events occur they take you completely off guard. During these times you can be left feeling angry, confused and unsettled. But sometimes it's amazing how clear things become amongst the tragedy. Suddenly what used to have you pondering away your time becomes blatantly obvious. You straight away priortise what's important to you and come to realise what it is you value most in your life. I find it incredible how people can set aside their differences when the time calls for it. The overwhelming love and support that people offer in times of need really proves that, despite everything that's wrong in the world, just below the surface is a society that will always come through for one another. And, if you think about it, it's a comforting thought to hold onto.

XIX Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010

The Commonwealth Games; a 2 week international event that sees the countries of the Commonwealth competing in a range of sports and allowing Australia to dominate without the likes of America and China stealing our thunder!
I like the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games! Usually I'm not a sports enthusiast, however the Olympics and Commonwealth Games really bring out my patriotism! My favourite sports to watch are the swimming and the diving! Australia has one of the leading swimming teams internationally. We have an incredibly talented team, including the likes of legends such as Leisel Jones and up-and-coming super-stars likes Alicia Coutts. And yes, I do realise I only mentioned females there, but right now the females dominate the swimming!! Emily Seebohm, Jessicah Schipper.. there's many more but I couldn't possibly write them all out.
That's not to say that the males don't pull their weight! I mean, Geoff Huegill made the most inspiring comeback! The efforts that that man went to in order to get to where he is now.. it's unbelievable! And the male 4x100 medley relay! They smashed the competition! So, all in all, I'm so proud of the Australian swimming team :)
And now that we've entered into the second week of competition, the diving has begun! Matthew Mitcham is so adorable! But more importantly, he's very talented; an excellent diver! He's my man to watch at the moment. I mean, I can't perv on Eamon Sullivan anymore due to the swimming being over, so now it's time to move onto my next target, Matthew.. lol
In all seriousness though, I'm loving the Commonwealth Games at the moment! It's competitions like this that make me want to swim again! It makes me want to aspire to be like these people, competing for the enjoyment, the thrill, and the chance to represent their country and make them proud!
Oh, and to conclude this post on an extreme PHWOAR factor, I leave you with these two beautiful men ♥

This requires a blog because I'm just so relieved that it's over..
Today was my first exam of the year 12 VCE exam period, and what better way to start off such a time than with a Japanese oral exam! It was a day of mixed emotions; stress, anxiety, pride, relief! Surrounded by such an amazing and supportive class, we all managed to get through it together! A shout out to Emma, Elly, Elouise, Emily, Bonnie, Rachael, Kaitlyn, Jeorja and James who all did a magnificent job! And of course our teacher, Miss Faulkner, whom without we definitely wouldn't have been able to get through it!
The bus ride to Box Hill involved a lot of screaming and laughing and mind-distracting antics; a very fun environment to be in.. despite the obvious nerves that everyone was feeling! Nevertheless, we were all there for each other, and we did it! XD
I may have made a few mistakes.. had a few silences where I just had no idea what to say!! But overall I don't think I did too badly. And hey, what does it really matter.. right now I'm just so happy that it's over! lol
