When I'm Feeling Down

When I'm feeling depressed, anxious, sad or angry these are a few things that I do to help me feel better.

I watch Youtube videos of play-throughs of my favourite games.
My favourites are The Yogscast.
They are hilarious and just listening to them joke around while trying to get to the moon in Minecraft is an instant mood lifter.

Listen to music.
It depends on how I'm feeling, as to what music I will listen to.
I have a few playlists on my computer that correspond to what I'm feeling.

I have ANGRY, which is full of fast angry sounding rock songs and songs with titles like "Fuck You" (Lily Allen), "I Don't Care" (Apocalyptica feat. Adam Gontier) and "I Hate Everything About You" (Three Days Grace) etc.

I have SAD, which is full of sad, ballads. That even though they're sad songs, make me feel better! Songs like, "Your Guardian Angel" (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus), "Come Away to The Water" (Maroon 5) and "Fix You" (Coldplay) etc.

When I'm feeling anxious, I usually turn to 8track.com.
I usually go for the mixes that feature instrumental songs from Soundtracks, epic scores from Lord of The Rings, Gladiator and Inception etc.
I'm currently listening to Feel Something. (which has 62 tracks in it)

The best thing about listen to 8track while you're anxious, is you can only skip tracks 5 times every hour, so you have to listen to the whole song! You find yourself lost in a world of awesome!

Cupcakes, usually!
I always have ingredients for cupcakes around.
This is sometimes a problem, because usually the reason for my anxieties is the dirty kitchen, so I can't really bake... but either way, baking always makes me feel better.
I like experimenting with different flavours, ingredients and cooking times.
I'm yet to make the perfect cupcake... but one day!

Play video games.
Usually Minecraft or Skyrim.
I love opened ended games where you can just wander around and explore.
Sometimes, I might want to do a quest, but usually I just explore.


What are some things you do when you're feeling down?
leave a comment and let me know.

The 5,000 Question Survey - Q21-40

Avoiding the internet (Tumblr in particular)
Because I don't want to see any Doctor Who 50th spoilers.
So here I am, doing a blog post I should of done weeks ago!
Part 2

Are you more of a giver or a taker? 
I think I’m 50/50
I’ve trained myself to be less than a giver.
It’s not a bad thing
but if you become to self-less it really drags you down.
you want to find the good middle ground.


Do you make your decisions with an open heart/mind? 
depends on the decision.
if it a “what to buy” decision I use my mind
if its a friend is trouble or a relationship decision
it would be heart.


What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you? 
rolling my ankle when I was in year 12.
I’ve never broken a bone.
so I’m lucky.
also recently when I was really sick
I would have coughing fit which would lead to panic attack
and I would get this unbearable pain in my arms!
tension and stress! Not nice


What is the most emotionally painful thing that has ever happened to you? 
my parents separation.
it was over a long period of time
I had some issues to deal with
they took awhile to sort out
they stressed me out.
I would cry all the time and be depressed
and then one day I dealt with them
and it was better!
I still have a few issues now.
but nothing as bad as that.


Who have you hugged today? 
woah! heaps of people.
I work in childcare.
I get as many hugs as I want!
the hugs I like the most
are from the children that don’t usually hug
the independant “grown up” kids.
their hugs are best
because they mean it.


Who has done something today to show they care about you? 
I know people care about me
mum made dinner
I haven't eaten it
but it means I have lunch tomorrow


Do you have a lot to learn? 
yes. i’m always learning
I love it
I never want to stop learning!


If you could learn how to do three things just by wishing and not by working what would they be?
A - A Language, maybe French, or Spanish or Japanese
B - Fly
C - Draw & Write really well :D


Which do you remember the longest: what other people say, what other people do or how other people make you feel? 
How other people make me feel.


What are the key ingredients to having a good relationship? 
honesty, humour and good arguments :D


What 3 things do you want to do before you die? 
A - Visit every Country in the World
B - Have Children & then grand children
C - Go to Space


Is there a cause you believe in more than any other cause? 
Childrens Mental Health.
I blame my mother.
Most adults depression is caused by
something in their childhood
so why don’t deal with it while it’s still fresh


What does each decade make you think of: 
The 19.. 
30's: WW2
40's: Pearl Harbour
50's: Dad
60's: Mum
70's: Music
80's: Best Decade
90's: Backstreet Boys
2000s: Highschool
2010's: Bobs Burgers


Which decade do you feel the most special connection to and why? 
I was born in the 80s and love 80s Music.


What is your favourite oldie/classic rock song? 
Cant' Fight This Feeling by REO Speedwagon


What country do you live in and who is the leader of that country?
Australia and the leader, well he’s an idiot... so The Queen


If you could say any sentence to the current leader of your country what would it be? 
“What is your fucking problem?”


What's your favorite TV channel to watch in the middle of the night? 


What Disney villain are you the most like and why? 
I secretly wish I was Ursula from The Little Mermaid
She’s awesome. Confident with her size
Has 8 Arms... that would be super helpful
and is just awesome!


Have you ever been a girl scout/boy scout? 


Stay tuned for the next 20.
Hopefully sooner, rather than later!

Birthday Week Wrap Up

Hey everyone.
How have you been?
Sorry I haven't posted in awhile
It's been a busy week.

It was my birthday on the 20th November.
I had this huge birthday present haul post,
but I haven't received the biggest (and best) present yet
because the stupid shop hasn't ordered it yet.
I know what it is.
But I'm going to keep it as a relative surprise to everyone.
I'm so excited!

I didn't do anything special on my birthday.
I was at work.
I did however, have 30+ under 5s sing Happy Birthday to me.
It was adorable.
I also got so many birthday drawings!

We went to a local restaurant on Friday night.
I have Chicken Pesto Sizzleplate! So Yum!

But other than that (and the weekend before)
It was a good birthday week.

Stay tuned for the Birthday Present Haul post
Coming soon.

Awesomest Birthday Surprise EVER!

What a weekend!
I was sick on Friday and sent home from work
I got home and my little sister told me that I had ruined her surprise for me
because I had to be at work.
She told me that she would text me
and then I had to leave the house.

So at 4.30pm I got a text
So I left the house.
I went for a drive.
I got a text saying I could go home.

I made it home
opened the door and there was a huge box.
Well long story short.
My best friend Emma was in the box
She had travelled down from Perth for the weekend
to celebrate my birthday
My sisters and my mum had organised it
They had been organising it for 2 weeks with Emma.

It was surprised
but because I was sick
I didn't really act it!
The weekend was AMAZING!
It would of been epic if I wasn't sick
Plus Emma had her wisdom teeth removed on Wednesday
so she wasn't 100% herself either!

On Friday we just went for a drive and saw my dad and Cous Cous
we had Fish & Chips and played Cards Against Humanity.

On Saturday we went shopping.
Did some tourist stuff
Took Emma to Penis Rock (yep you heard me right)
Here's the proof!

We went to the Amity
(which is a Ship that brought people to Albany)
and did some other random sight seeing

Made a cake.
AN AWESOME Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse Cake!
And made Stir Fry for dinner
We then played Cards Against Humanitys again!

Today we went to the Boatshed Markets
(which I didn't even know existed!)
We had some food
I bought some succulents to make a terrarium.

We then went to Whale World
saw some animals
I bought myself an Erstwilder Ship Brooch!

Isn't it awesome!?

we then went to The Gap
which is a gap in the rocks where the ocean rushes in. LOL
We left because some tourists were being stupid and not following the safety warnings

Then came home and Emma left. :(

What an amazing weekend
What an amazing start to my birthday week!
I don't think it can get any better.
But we will see!

Christmas Tag

Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I would love love love to have a real Christmas Tree.
I've never had one.
We have always had a synthetic tree.
For as long as I can remember we had the super fake looking tree
It was probably only 130cm high.
It was a big part of our family memories.
We would put it up on December 1st
then take it down some time before Australia Day (Jan 26th)
But we got rid of it after it lost too many branches.

Then when my parents separated and I moved with dad
the traditions stopped.
Then dad's girlfriend moved in, so last christmas was more her traditions.
This year I'm living with mum
And it's time to start my own!

Yesterday I went and bought my OWN Christmas tree.
One for my mums' house, but I will take it when I move.
It's still in the box, but it means on December 1st we can put it up!

You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick up?
Pepsi Max
I'm not a big hot drink drinker
plus Christmas is in Summer here
and it's usually 30ºc+

What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
Each year we choose a different colour scheme
This year I'm thinking Teal & Silver.

Giving or receiving?
Admit it, everyone likes presents!
I love giving presents too.
Apparently I'm a good gift buyer.
I especially like giving gifts to children.

To mince pie or not to?
Yuck! Can't think of anything worse!
Fly-Pie we call them here.

What's your traditional Sunday lunch?
Roast Meats (Lamb, Pork & Chicken)
Roast Vegetables.
Leg of Ham.
All the trimmings.

Sometimes we have a Barbecue!
Which is nice when it's a hot day.
Get the kiddie pool out
and the sprinkles
(and the water pistols)
It's great!

Christmas day fashion
Probably the girliest
flowery dress I can find.
I spend the day with my family
so I could wear whatever I wanted :)

What's your favourite Christmas song?
O Holy Night
sang by anyone.
But especially the Michael Paynter version

It's beautiful.
I've always loved O Holy Night

What's your favourite Christmas film?
Home Alone & A Nightmare Before Christmas
Not your traditional Lovey-Dovey Miracles films.
I also love
Jingle All The Way

Open presents before or after lunch?
Usually we open presents from mum & dad in the morning
Then at our big family lunches
Presents get opened after lunch, but before dessert
Unless you're my 2 & 4 year old cousins
Then ALL the presents (even ones not for them)
get opened as soon as they're found!


I'm actually pretty excited for Christmas this year.
Hope everyone else is.
I haven't even thought about Christmas shopping
I might just be crafty and make everyones presents this year!

Things I Need (but can't afford)

Things I Need
(but can't afford)

in Charcoal, size XXXL please :D

If you don't know what The Reward is.

The Reward is an extraordinary nine-minute fantasy student film created at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark. Directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjær.

You can watch it for yourself here.

They are currently making a Youtube web series (thanks to Kickstarter funding, If I had knew about it, I would of backed them, but it's over now)


in any colour
I'm not fussed, really!

I like this new Raspberry Ice colour.
They're so PRETTY!
But $799.00
so not for me anytime soon!


How awesome would it be to travel around Europe in one of these!?

Seriously! It's freaking awesome!
I would probably need a little mattress for the bed space,
but hey! If I had the money, I would design my own.


What do you really "need" but can't afford/justify?
Leave a comment and let me know!

I love using Instagram (you can follow me, I'm princessgeek86)
But I've always wanted to print the photos I take.
You either have to print them in the normal 4x6 format then cut them
or, a local camera store will now print them... for $1.50 each!!

I found a website called Printstagram

You can print your 4x4in photos... 24 for $12 (plus $12 postage to Aus... but thats still only $1 each)
plus you can do mini prints... 48 for $15
4x4in photos & mini squares - photo from http://printstagr.am

or even make posters, mini books and....
mini sticker book - photo from http://printstagr.am

sticker books! 252 mini stickers for $10!
I don't even have that many photos.
I was going to order the mini stickers, but decided to take some more photos first

So I ordered the 4x4in photos. Just to give it a try!
I'm not sure how long postage will be, but I'm not too fussed.

They also have a really awesome easy interface for you to choose your photos.
You can print more than one of the same photos, or all different.

Awesome Printsagram Ideas:
Take photos of food for your recipe book
Photo of friends for place settings
Awesome Wedding Invites
Fun, Personal Gifts
Vanilla Craft has some awesome ideas.... here and here

So if you want to give it a try, head to http://printstagr.am

As soon as my order arrives, I'll do a review.

Now to take more photos so I can order a sticker book!
