Getting lost in the forest....and a bit about Holly!

I'm aware I have not written a post about my boys, and I shall do that next time methinks.

Right, interesting weekend I had! On Friday went to visit the Grossparents, (grandparents....half in German if you must know) and stayed overnight, as is often my Friday routine. Nanny and I go to Waitrose after she has picked me up from Schollege, she buys me a drink and something to eat, we get the stuff we need for dinner, and then go home. I also got a vibrating toothbrush and the latest YD mag! Oh, the fun I've had with that toothbrush on cam!! ;P (does that sound bad at all eh? :P) Then we eat some SCRUMMY food, watch TV (Millionaire, QI, Would I Lie To You?, Easties and Corro,) go to bed, and in the morning I walk Hollybolly in the New Forest, and my Mum or Dad comes to take me home after that. FUNTIMESALLROUND.

So, I was happily out walking Holly on Saturday morning, on our usual route near the golf course in Lyndhurst, when we came across a lovely muddy, madbonkers one year old Retriever, Bella, and her owner, who was very nice, albeit a bit boring to spend THREE HOURS WITH!!!

Basically, she lived on my Grossparents' road. And was also going to the same place as I. So I thought, why not go with her? The dogs were enjoying each other's company! ...She wanted to go the LONGER route though, which still only takes about an hour. So I thought....ok, but I never go that way so I shall have to rely on this lady to know the way. Anyway, she made a wrong turning at one point, but decided she'd keep going because she was SURE we were right by the golf course, and would come out on it any moment. We didn't. We kept doing this, walking a LITTLE bit further each time, expecting the golf course to JUMP OUT AT US (....it did not...) until we ended up COMPLETELY lost on some bike path...!! We found and followed a random road I had never seen before in my life for about 20 minutes in the opposite direction to the way we'd been walking... and ended up at Ashurst rail station, which is 3 and a half miles away from where we were supposed to be. We then came off the roads and went onto the heathland, so the dogs could walk off lead while we found our way back by following the road. BAD idea. I. Got. SO. Muddy. And pulled a muscle because the mud was evil and wanted to eat me, and sucked me into it's murky squidgy depths (well, sucked my entire leg in anyway.) My shoes were nearly ruined. Luckily they are sturdy DMs and don't take s**t from ANYONE, let alone some smelly old mud!

Anyway, we finally made it back after three hours, and luckily I was not yelled at or anything, parents were simply happy to have me back. Lol. More fool them >D

So a bit about Holly.

Holly is a Border Collie, very similar breed to my Australian Shepherds, can be similar in looks too, especially the blue merles and black tris. She is very intelligent, and follows commands really well too, bless her. She has BOUNDLESS energy, and runs like the wind blows, I am not kidding! She and I have a special bond ^_^ she will always follow me over my Nanny, listen to me over Nanny, etc. And she is definitely my little shadow, will not let me out of her sight very readily!

She is afraid of most fast moving things, especially cars and bikes. Tries to chase and nip them unfortunately, as the herding instincts kick in to help her deal with her fear. She also barks at New Forest ponies fairly often, the little bugger. Again, it's the instinct to herd the ponies.....but combined with my Nanny's ignorance when it comes to understanding how one trains a dog..... *rolls eyes.* I also reckon she isn't too confident around ponies either, due to their size.

When I took her out this Saturday though, she sat nicely while I took photos of one pony, went up to bark afterwards but a firm NO from me had her running away from the pony and leaving it alone again. Then a bit later, got her to sit and stay at a great distance from the ponies, and walked up to them to take more pictures. Looked back about five minutes later, and she was still there where I had put her, just watching the ponies. I was rather pleased with her for that, and she got a good cuddle!

She's very crafty, naughty, high spirited and friendly (although a bad experience when she was younger causes her to be very fearful of men now SIGH) and is definitely my best friend in doggy form x]

Charlotte, I don't mean that she is you with fur! XD

Here's a couple pictures of the little rascal!

 My pony friend who was very good for posing nicely for a photo :p
Where I walk. I wasn't lost at this point!!
Or this point, this is pretty much just outside where my Nanny lives! Lucky so and so. I get a lovely view of concrete pavements, chavs, and opened condom packets (only when I've forgotten to throw them away *rolls eyes*) when I look out MY window.

Finally back at college, and GOD am I glad to be back! Thought I might die of boredom.

Had a pretty good day today. Had double German first thing in the morning though, which is always a bit much, I mean... 2 hours on a Friday morning errrrrrrgh, but I survived it somehow (despite the presence of some random gay German music playing in the listening exercise.) Had Blodge after that with Mrs. Ellis (N) Mrs. Ellis, no offence to her, is so BORING. All we ever do is copy out what she has already written up in a powerpoint presentation, so we don't really learn anything! I don't see why we can't just listen in lessons, so we get it, and then get the powerpoint presentation printed so we still have the noted! ANYWAY. Today's Bio was actually amazing! All we did ALL lesson, was make animals out of marshmallow, then arrange them for pictures. I named mine Percy, and gave him a hat, and an agape mouth just to make him that bit more unique and cool (like he needs a hat to be cool!) XD We had to pair up 'chromosomes' at random to find the characteristics of our animals-to be, and then make them out of marshmallow, pipecleaner, tacs and cocktail sticks. Was very fun.

Had photography after that, went out with my friend Micol to the music rooms etc. to snap some pictures of....... her hand playing the piano, or whatever. Had lots of fun greatly annoying her taking pictures of her too. (Y)

Maths was......maths. Lol. Neither bad nor good really. But yeah, better than staying at home all day doing carrotpoop. Doing trig though. MAAAAJOR fail! I hate trig so much. Why has something so vital in a subject got to be so BLOODY BORING? -__-

On the way home Elliot bought me some sweets and junk food and I AM EATING IT ALLLLLL >D Makes me happy, and forget the boringness of trig, Mrs. Ellis, and the assembly this morning in which Mrs. Pascoe became an eye makeup- ringed, blonde wig wearing seal slapping it's fins together in the same way she was clapping, in my head. The assembly brought on some interesting logic however. According to Macdonald (principlee) our lives are all like movie scripts for the best movie ever written. Also according to Macdonald, you could watch a movie in under 20 minutes, because the general rule is 8 minutes of interesting stuff, half an hour of feathers (you know, parts of the film which just fluff it up as opposed to actually adding anything to the storyline) followed by 2 minutes of interesting stuff, followed by half an hour of feathers, followed by 2 minutes of interesting stuff, and it finishes. So, what he's saying is. We can go to a lesson, listen for 8 minutes and have a half hour break. Right?

Anyway, that was my day. Highlights-.....probably NOT sitting on my arse all day, and the epic Wombat moment, that was pretty happy. XD

Yet more illdom

Oh my god, the past few days have been so DULL! I've been stuck at home with nothing to do, because I haven't felt well enough for Scholage, and mum has had to go into work every day so far this week. I've had the dogs at home to keep me company, and dad. But all they did ALL day (the three of them) was sleep. The entire time. So I watched Eastenders, and True Blood.....and.....talked to certain lucky someones on MSN. And my day went by.....how FUN does that sound to you? Wanna trade lives for a bit?

At the moment feeling a bit deflated. Like there are so many things circling in my mind I cannot talk about. I think the combination of dull weather, being ill and being stuck at home is what is doing it at the moment (but are they just bringing to the surface FASTER feelings that would have surfaced, if slower, anyway?)

I know my being ill is due to lack of sleep, and having such a poor immune system, but I literally cannot make myself sleep earlier! My brain just doesn't want to stop thinking about complete unimportant JUNK and it keeps me awake usually to about 2am or sometimes 1am if I'm lucky. Therefore, I am surviving at the moment on about  hours of sleep a night, which just isn't enough. In lessons, I struggle to stay awake, so being even the slightest bit ill just makes that ten times worse!

Anyway, enough moaning and groaning for now.

Do me a favour, and tell me (via comments) if you prefer this picture, or the one in the last post for the competition with theme 'the view out my school window'

Why is it that my life at the moment seems to consist of homework, msn, facebook and food? That is a very sad person's life, surely? I'm trying to go outside more, go on more walks with the dogs etc. but I can't seem to motivate myself to do so. To be fair, I did go on a walk this morning, it was fun so I think I can get myself back into a more healthy routine. I hope, anyway. We met up with a lovely dog walkeress and her doggies, labmeister Wispa and podencoator Ditto. (Who has normal labs and podencos these days?) The four doggums got on superbly, Wispa gets grumpy but Monts and Woods listen to him and leave him alone after a single grumbly. A little Border Terrier attempted to mount Wispa, who isn't even that big, but the epicness of the fail was rather funny. Particularly because Wispa then went 'grrrrrrr' and the little terrier ran off, tail between his legs. Heh.

I just got the most massive splinter in the world!! Our floorboard downstairs is wrecked because of the dogs, and years of rollerblading and skateboarding down it. It needs a good polishing....or whatever. Will just have to get builder Dave down on the job. :D

Was off ill today from scholage, and was absolutely BORED OUT OF MY MIND. What can you do when no one (apart from dad....but he doesn't count) is home, and no one is on msn? I'll tell you what-go on youtube and watch the most traumatic, and mentally damaging videos ever. You can be kept busy for hours, watching the same video over and over, trying to work out WTF you just watched! I saw this video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6k_dgvab65I&feature=related today. And. After watching it about 20 times am really not sure whether I want to laugh or cry...or both. I mean. WTF. :|

I know this is sad, but I am hoping to go to the zoo to see friends I haven't seen in 7 months soonish, and I am FRIGGIN excited! I mean, good friends + animals + toy shop = PURE WIN. If my bestie moo can go, it will be X a million for awesomeness. And if they all get on, X ten billion. XD I'm sure they will, they're all nuts! :P Kinda concerned said bestie moo may worry I'll leave her out for my other friends, but I know that will not happen as she is my no.1 and is attached to me like the ring on my finger.....yesh......kinda managed to get a ring stuck on my finger. XD Tis not a pain though, tis from IOW time with said bestie and so shall remain there forever, or at least until my fingers and I along with them get uber fat and chubby and I have to have it surgically removed.

Will be ultra nice to see my pallies from college again though, missed them so much and the strange/good times we have had :P LITERALLY cannot wait. XD

Ramble ramble ramble. I'm hungry but I feel ill. DILEMMA.

Intro to me

So, whether you like it or not, I'm going to force feed you a little bit of an introduction to me. Think of it like those times you were FORCED to swallow the broccoli, or gag on the brussel sprouts! In general I'm extremely shy, but at the same time loud? I am the laziest thing any discoverer man ever discoverered, and I am the QUEEN (or one of many I suppose) of sexual innuendoes, so beware! You have been warned.

I can have quite a short temper, but usually that's well controlled, so SHUT THE F*CK UP, OK? I shall try my utmost NOT to come on here and RANT away like a little angry ranty thingy, but you just never know what kinds of twittish things people will do to you nowadays, do you?

Passion number one in life is dogs. I wouldn't be without a dog now. I have two Aussies (Australian Shepherds,) Monty and Woody, who are my boys....my life basically! They are very much a duo, and gang up to perform naughties, but gotta love them for it. They'd never do anything deliberately to hurt anyone. Monty is VERY VERY stupid. I am not kidding. The lights are on....but no one is home, and no one has been home since the err....arrival of his manhood!! That's a LONG holiday! Woody is more intelligent, and that intelligence has survived through the arrival of his own manhood, which I am very glad about. Monty is....well, he's Monty, everyone has accepted he is just too stupid. But we didn't need another one of those :P

Passion number two is photography. I just LURVE to whip out the ol' DSLR in my family's face and take a few snaps of them....I dunno, looking constipated or demented. Mostly I photograph nature or the dogs. But the odd portrait too, when the occasion calls for such photos. I'm the designated photographer in the family, so I'm always in charge of taking all the photos on holidays, nights out, etc. But I love it so much, I don't mind. Plus, who wants to see my ugly mug in the holiday album anyway? Want to show my grandchildren one day WITHOUT giving them nightmares! I do love and appreciate GOOD photography. I.e. to me, if I'm taking a picture now, I want to do it properly. I enjoy it a lot and using all the different settings and adjusting all the controls on the camera to see what results I get has become a bit of a hobby even when I'm not taking pictures! (NERD ALERT, NERD ALERT) ....er-hem.....did you hear something?

Music wise, my taste is incredibly varied. I like Linkin Park, Radiohead, Paloma Faith, Eliza Doolittle, Black Eyed Peas, Eminem, Does it Offend You, Yeah?, Florence & the Machine, The Morning Benders.....I could go on and on but do you get my point?

Not really much else to say I don't think.... I go to school (in the sixth form, I am 18!) and study German, Maths, Psychology and Biology at A level, and am doing a Photography GCSE. I love ALL my subjects, I actually wouldn't change any of them. I want to do Zoology at uni, so the subjects are all sort of based around that (Biology for....well, Biology is a requirement! Maths as a second science, German because it helps being able to speak another language if you take Zoology, especially German, and Psychology because of the behavioural/psychological side of Zoology.) I went to a different college last year. But due to difficulties with one particular teacher, which kind of messed up my whole experience there and made me unhappy there, I left and returned to my old school. So I am now in the year below what I should be, but I'm very VERY happy that happened, as I made some fantastic friends at the other college......Although I feel my (nonextistent....let's be honest) pride has taken a knock at being in the year below! V_V

Ultimately, my goals in life are to become a dog behaviourist, or a wildlife photographer, and to make people happy. I make a lot of jokes at my expense, because I am a freak of nature. Lol...and in the hope that if people can't laugh with me at least they can have a good ol' giggle AT me. :P

Anyway, I hope you feel thoroughly tortured and sanity-ravaged now...and I am off to find something to put in my mouth.

...That is something to eat. Love you all!

...Oh, here, have a picture

Am I crazy? Honest opinions please!
