Wonders Of Life

Professor Brian Cox's new series Wonders of Life aired in the UK this morning (it was 5am my time, but 9pm yesterday, their time) and I'm so excited!
I admit that I will download it to watch it! But I will also be buying in on Blu-ray as soon as it's released in Australia (or UK for that matter, because we have the same region coding)

Not only do I get to see Brian Cox, but the trailer features the re-written scientifically correct Galaxy Song by Eric Idle (from Monty Pythons Meaning of Life)

Just listen... (and watch)

I can't wait. There is also a book to go with the series, which I will buy once I have some money. Money is going to be tight for awhile. I had a drop a shift at work for school. So I'm only working 19hours a week. I'm considering going back to my old job (if they'll have me) but there are pros and cons to it.

Anyway, that's it for now :D

Deco Phone Cover = Expensive!

I want an iPhone case like this!
I realise its not an iPhone cover, but its a custom order listing!
It's freaking amazing! But also FREAKING Expensive!
I would be pretty paranoid that bits would fall off. But it's just SOOOO Pretty!

My room is semi-cleanish!
I had a migraine on Friday morning so I called in sick. By 2pm I was feeling better so I went crazy and cleaned my room, but ended up with a migraine again in the evening. Migraines suck!
This picture I drew, accurately depicts how I've been feeling over the last few days :(

I have too much stuff in my room! It's starting to get a little overwhelming! I can't even imagine how I managed to cull so much shit to fit it into this tiny room when we moved house. I can't wait until I have my own house so I can spread out! I might be moving in with mum when my sister and her partners' house is built. Which will be good, because I'll be able to spread out and not feel uncomfortable in other parts of the house, like I do here (but that's a story for another day)

Anyway, off to find something for lunch.

Still having inspiration issues.

23 January 2013

HELP- I need inspiration!

I'm so uninspired to blog!

^ that short sentence has been sitting there for the last 2 hours while I fluff around on the internet looking for inspiration!


It's so frustrating!

I'm waiting for a CD to download. Damnesia by Alkaline Trio. I've seen Alkaline Trio live, but only knew 2 of their songs (Time To Waste & Kiss Kiss, Love Love) so I'm downloading their newest album which is a collection of their old songs that they have re-recorded and changed :D Plus the singer is attractive (in that I'm in high school again and think guyliner is hot sort of way!)

I've been walking. I've walked 1km (or more) each day for the last 3 days. I have also tried to watch what I eat.

So it's been another 2 hours since I stopped writing this post! FML!

Maybe tomorrow :D

The Adventure Begins

It's been a little while since I blogged.
I've pretty much been playing Minecraft online with Emmy :D
I've also been planning an epic adventure. A pilgrimage.
I've decided that in 2016, I will WALK the Camino De Santiago in Spain.
It's a 700km + Pilgrimage. It's one of the oldest walks in the world.

I'm excited about it, but also scared. It's my motivation to get healthy.

Other than that I haven't done much in the last couple days.

I enrolled in TAFE to continue my childcare studies. I'm very excited. I have more school time and I also have Prac. One day a week for 20 weeks! 10 days with Babies, and 10 days in the "big kids" room (which is 2-5year olds).
I had so much trouble getting everything done last year. I'm hoping this year to be a little bit more pro-active, and also hoping that having glasses will help. I wouldn't do much homework because I would always end up with a headache. :)

Is anyone else studying this year? I also plan on trying to do a Spanish Language short course, in preparation for my adventure.

Its been really hot here recently. It's been so gross!!! BRING ON WINTER!

Buying… Nothing! I need to save money for PAX!
Wanting… Money for PAX.

I can't even function properly with this gif. The way he slightly bows his head, his piercing eyes! *flails*

5 Years Anniversary!

Very. First. Post. (Introduction v1.0)

It's been 5 years since I started this blog. That's pretty amazing!

5 years ago today I was working in a job that I didn't really enjoy, I was uncomfortable with myself, I lacked confidence and didn't really know how to just "be myself"

I think I've come a long way, and I don't think I could of made it this far without this blog, and all the awesome friends I have made.

Okay, so I admit, I'm still in a job that's sort of boring and repetitive, and I still lack confidence, but compared to 5 years ago! I'm starting to come out of my shell. My online persona is more me, than my real life persona, and I'm slowly becoming more "Me"

My blog has evolved too.

It started as "Cupcakes and Mustangs" back in 2008.
Then became "Eclectic Geekery" in 2009.
Then I changed it again to "The Importance of Being Lost" but by the end of 2010, "The Princess and The Geek" was born, complete with it's own URL and everything.

I was going to re-introduce myself, but decided not to, you all know who I am :D

I hope everyone had a great new year, and I hope everyone is looking forward an awesome 2013. If you haven't already check out my 2013 Bucket List, also link me to yours :D

My first news years resolution is to cut out sugar :D, be more AWESOME and make more friends :D
