Tonight is the night

Wednesday, 20 November 2013

Now tonight (technically tomorrow if you want to be like that) at 00:31 am I'm going to go see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as it's first released. "Thats a bit late at night Amy" you may ask, well, it is a bit late. But I dont think I can physically explain my love for this film.

You know those obsessed fangirls that read the books like 50 billion times? That can quote the whole film and half the books off by heart if you wanted them too? That sat freaking out as she waited desperately for them announce who was cast as who in the next film? Yeah well that's me. I'm pretty bad. So it was slightly obvious that I'd be seeing the first showing of this film that I physically could. I'm both nervous and excited for this film. Nervous because I'm dreading some of the scenes from the book, worried that they might let me down in some ways, and excited because I've waited so long for this film. I remember when there was like 400 odd sleeps until this and now theres none. NONE. I feel sorry for my Nan, who I'm going to see it with, as I'll be in the seat next to her dying as I see them recreate some of my favourite scenes from the book, and also some of the deaths. (SPOILERS. *cough* I don't think I'll be able to cope when Cinna dies, if they even put that in. *cough* SPOILERS)

The first film obviously wasn't as good as the book, but they never are. However they did an exceptional job at turning it into a film, and I'm only hoping this one is the same. Are any of you going to see this film, do you have any predictions or hopes for it?


Excuses, Excuses

Wednesday, 13 November 2013

My blog is a complete mess. It's been countless days since my last post and I do way too many "I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while" posts. The reason being this time because my Nans computer is broke. My fault obviously, I broke it. She can't afford a new one, I can't afford my own, so the problem forms. I am extremely sorry I haven't been posting, but I'm determined to start up again.

 I've been feeling really motivated and inspired recently, so I'm determined to at least post once a week. I'll post everything from beauty reviews to film reviews, recipes to wishlists and OOTDs to just general posts.

Now instead of having this post as another "I'm sorry" post (but seriously, I really am!), I thought I'd talk about excuses. I'm full of them, I have an excuse for everything. Half of them aren't even true and don't actually make any sense, and I know a lot of other teenagers are exactly the same. When it comes to excuses we, being the weird generation we are, don't like to take the blame or responsibility for anything that happens, and in some cases excuses are good. They work, it's fine using them and it doesn't really matter, but in some situations it really would be best to just come clean rather than making up an excuse.

The excuse "my dog ate my homework" is a classic. But what if one day your dog really does eat your homework? If you're full of lies and always use excuses like that, then one day no one will believe you when you're telling the truth. As I'm typing this I can hear my Mum having a go at my dog for chewing up her gym plans and etc, as my dog eats literally anything, so it's not exactly an impossible excuse. It's kinda like the boy who cried wolf. Use excuses but only if they're genuine and needed.
