Geography Lesson # 2


Now in high school I took Ancient History, I absolutely loved it..one of my favorite subjects. Theres Just something fascinating about learning how people used to live, so the places I want to visit the most are places featured in my ancient history classes.

Lesson # 2 features: Cairo, Egypt



Cairo is located in the north of Egypt..














Tonnes of people flock to these ancient attractions every year, the ancient pyramids which were originally built to house the tombs of the pharohs, the largest pyramid in Giza (located on the outskirts of Cairo) is called The Pyramid of Khufu. It is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence.




The Sphinx is also located near the pyramids but the history of the sphinx is unclear and there are many different theories about how it came to be. Although it has been worn away over the centuries it is still said to be a breathtaking sight.








The Egyptian Museum is home to countless ancient Egyptian artifacts.














Ibn Tulun, the oldest, and maybe most beautiful mosque in Cairo.
















If you've been to Egypt or know someone thats been, post some advice for future travellers =D

The Special Moments..


There are certain moments in life when you sit back and think wow, my life is pretty great and of course there are times when you sit back and think damn it my life sucks. For me this tends to vary daily and unfortunately that may just be me or can I blame it on being female?? hmmmm i think ill go with the thing i cant help which is being female.. Anyway the story the inspires this entry is as follows...

Yesterday was Saturday and normally i have plans to keep myself occupied, whether its sitting on facebook all day, watching tv or going out with friends...well on this particular Saturday i had no computer, there was nothing on tv and my friends also had no ideas. So here I was sitting at home with absolutely nothing to do and then as usual i start to ponder my life...And usually when im alone and ponder my life it doesnt turn out so great..i start thinking that im in a dead end job, im too fat, i have no new clothes because im always broke (tear), but usually what gets me is my relationship. Especially when you think your life should be like a romantic comedy. Things just can never be good enough for me when it comes to Drama King, so im sure while feeling like this was not a good time to watch P.S I love you because that just makes me cry. Theres no way around it..its wayyyy to romantic. But i just cant help having romantically high expectations when it comes to my life. Ive seen way to many romantic movies to look back now. Changing my expectations would be like changing my whole personality and i'm just not prepared to do that. So here i was sitting on the couch feeling all depressed and I just couldnt help it..(i actually thought i must be getting my period) but it turns out thats just what happens when im left bored out of my brain. My brain actually starts to create problems to keep me entertained (not that depression is a form of entertainment). But now to the plus side...

Whilst feeling depressed you've pretty much hit rock bottom, which may or may not be on a regular basis, but the plus side is that your mood can only get better, right??? Right!! Well Drama King completely redeemed himself today. I had a family bbq to go to for my mothers bday. Now normally Drama King kicks and screams when I drag him to these events, but no, today he was perfectly fine(except that I had to pick out his clothes because he has no fashion sense), so we went along to the bbq, he cooks the whole meal, doesn't even complain about it, he lets me take a million photos which normally he doesn't allow because he thinks i take too many photos, kisses and cuddles me the whole time, actually talks to my grandma (which i dont even do otherwise id be there all day(she doesnt shut up) and then to top it off he gives me an amazing massage. mmmm.. now it may not be straight out of a romantic comedy but its the little things like that that can just brighten your day and make you more dramatically in love. Its the effort that i was looking for and now i know that he's really trying. So that my friends are the special moments, when the man you love really trys to be the best he can be for you.

Movie Moment!!


You know the moment in a movie when the character really wants to do something naughty and they have a little flash of what would happen if they did it.....then they get really happy because they think they were so courageous they actually did what they were thinking....and then reality brings them back down to earth with a huge THUD!!!

Well today that movie moment happened to me!

There I was sitting in a sales team meeting at work when often we get drilled about how bad we're doing (when really we're doing good) but they try and make us feel like we're doing bad so we try and do better. Well I'm on to there so obvious tactics.. WHAT THE HECK DO THEY WANT FROM US! So, annoyed as usual I sat there and kept my mouth shut. Because honestly what could anyone say that could change the usual repetition from our lovely boss of we're doing bad at this and bad at that......

Commence dream mode...

All of a sudden I stand up and say in a really irritated and loud voice, look here bitch, we're trying as hard as we can, this stupid company brings in new policies everyday and our job is constantly getting harder and there are constantly more things we have to remember to do every single day, and you think we are doing bad?? (I walk over and get all up in her face)You know what I think? I think you just shut the fuck up and be grateful that we are making sales at all and stop focusing on the how 'bad' we are doing because your stupid tactics aren't working. We don't even listen to you half the time!! My boss cowers underneath me speechless because I'm the first to stand up to her in the 10 years she has reigned as queen bee of the company. I continue..And get your lunch yourself you fat slob! It wouldn't kill you to get off your arse for once and stop telling us what to do!! All my colleauges look up to me in awe and start venting there own 'concerns'. All of a sudden we all line up in sequence and start singing and dancing terrific choreography to "you try to make me go to rehab and I say NO NO NO!!"...



And THUD!!! Damn back to reality...oh and shes talking to me...oops

Every good day dream has to end in song and dance ;-P (or sex) hehe

Geography Lesson # 1


Now you may not know it but I aspire to be a Travel Agent some day, so I have to get my knowledge up on the world. As you may know I am heading to Europe next year so I already know a bit about Europe. Every week I will post a geography lesson on some quirky facts about different locations around the world. Some I've been to already, some are yet to come.

Lesson # 1 features Phuket Thailand




Phuket is in the south of Thailand.















The Welcome Sign..Every Tourists Dream =D











Viking Cove, Really Beautiful =D
And yes the water is really that blue.










These are called Tuk Tuks, its the way you get around Phuket.
When you walk down the foot path you have lots of people yelling at you to take a ride in their tuk tuk or get a massage. Its a bit daunting to begin with but eventually you just ignore them and its better.





There is a baby elephant show after you take a ride through the jungle on an elephant in true tourist style. They are super cute and definatly worth seeing =D







The view from our hotel room, IMPORTANT NOTE: 3 star in Thailand means electricity black outs and cold showers. Invest some extra money and stay 4 or 5 star. It'll be worth it.






Thats this geography lesson over, if you have any questions just ask. Would love to hear your feedback.

When is to young too....??


You always here your parents and grandparents go on about how we're too young for this and too young for that, and back in there day they used to walk miles to school with no shoes and had no TV or mobiles. Which is fair enough if they want to constantly live in the past. But truth is its not their day anymore, its our day and we get to decide if we're to young. There are so many things we could be too young for, but also a lot that we could be to old for and I think thats for us to decide not anyone else. Parents and Grandparents would take that statement as a typical gen Y not listening to anyone and having too many opinions, but I don't care. So what that I don't remember a time before computers or mobile phones. Theres nothing wrong with the world that I have grown up in. I still have morals and beliefs, I just use channel them through technology.

Anyway how young is too young too....

-To have a baby??

Debatable, veryyyyy debatable...I think if your mentally ready for a baby and can accept the responsibility then age doesn't matter. People still look down on teenage pregnancy but its still happening and I think somewhere a long the way its no longer accepted to have babies young. When last century it was the norm to marry and have a family young..funny how times change.

-To have a mobile phone??

I know a 5 year old that has a mobile phone, now I think that is just ridiculous. There is absolutely no way that a child under the age of at least 10 should have a mobile phone, and even then just for safety purposes. I know that my social life didn't warrant a mobile phone until I was 13 or 14, in high school. Now I think that is normal these days. To have a mobile once you get to high school. But you still get the kids that a spoilt rotten and go through mobile phones like candy.

-To get married??

I think once you reach your 20's thats a good age to marry. As long as your in love and have been for quite some time I don't see a reason not too. Your not a baby anymore once your in your 20's.

-To have a facebook page??

I think 13 is just pushing it to have a facebook page. In order to social network all your friends have to be online and a lot of parents don't let their children do that type of thing, which I think is perfectly reasonable because teenagers at that age are going through enough without someone bitching about them on the internet.

-To have a job??

Legally in Australia you cannot have a job until your 14 and 9 months but some families who own farms and properties set their children to work much younger....i think kids should be kids while they can. When I was growing up I had to babysit my younger siblings pretty much everyday while my mother went to work. That meant I didn't really get a childhood. I had to spend my younger years acting old beyond my years. So there is no way I would send any child of mine to work before legally possible. But its up to the individual.


-To move out of home??

I moved out of home when I was 17 and had no support from my mother, and I'm not going to lie, it was very hard. Because I wasn't legally an adult it was hard to get my own place, I had to rent with a friend who was 18. I had 2 casual jobs, so money was tight. Those were the funnest times of my teenage years because I had a freedom I'd never had before but looking back I think I was too young. I think 18 would be a good age to move out and become independent but even if your at home until your 25 I think thats great. Personally I couldn't have done that because I couldn't stand my mother when I lived at home. She was very strict. If we had got along I never would have moved out. But I suppose this one depends on the situation.



Well theres just a few things, there are sooo much more..


What do yous think??

Jealousy...


Dictionary meaning..Fearful or wary of being supplanted; apprehensive of losing affection or position..

My meaning..I am in love with an amazing man and I am so insecure I think he's cheating on me with an older woman who keeps texting him!!

Love does crazy things to the mind, body and soul thats for sure. Drama King is my first real love. When I was 16 and lost my virginity I thought I was in love but when I met Drama King I finally felt what real love is and continues to be.
Now I am cool, calm and collected most of the time...minus the collected bit... but really i'm a laid back person, so prior to meeting Drama King if a guy cheated on me it was his choice because I was gone when I found out, more fish in the see right?? WRONG! If i ever found out that Drama King had cheated on me, I would be crushed, forced to watch some sad love story and have sex with the first guy that hits on me when I go out(only if hes worthy of course, otherwise that wouldn't make me feel good at all)

Now I don't even know why these thoughts are running through my head because I know he loves me and he tells me he could never live without me but how do I know he means it?? He might just be saying what I want to hear right?? I just dont know!! Im so scared of loosing him that its making me paranoid..even after 2 years!! Now we've talked about marriage and kids and I really want to get engaged but he's hesitating. Which I can sort of understand I guess. But if he's so sure that i'm the one why wait?? Life's short, people can be here one day and gone the next and I dont want to wait. I dont want to be one of those people that looses the one they love, i dont want this love story to end in tragedy. And I know it sounds over dramatic but its true and i'm sure all you people who have boyfriends, partners, husbands, lovers fully understand where I'm coming from.

Gahhh and all this has come out because he's been texting an older woman that works with him. I wish I was more trusting and he has never done anything to not have my trust, if anyone im the one that doesnt deserve the trust. Im just so worried that my poor heart will get broken and I dont think it can handle that right now. So perhaps its not him thats the problem. Maybe its me, maybe im just too insecure, have low self esteem and unhappy with my body. Maybe its my fault that sometimes I feel like he doesn't find me attractive. OMG what the heck is wrong with me. This is just pathetic...I'm off for now..just over thinking this a tad I think..

Nineteen things I have learned since being Nineteen


Seeing as my 20th birthday is on Sunday I thought there couldnt be a better time to reflect on the past year and what i've learn't if anything. =D

In no particular order the notorious nineteen....

19. Nothing (and i mean nothing) is perfect

18. People are all the time changing and no matter how hard you try there not about to change back.

17. Turning your back on a friend is not a cool thing to do, especially when they were always there for you.

16. I have many dreams that may but may not ever come true.

15. True love doesn't fade overnight..or ever..

14. Grass is defiantly not greener on the other side.

13. Going out drinking night after night leaves you with a permanent hang over.

12. Having your very own place to come home every day is pure gold..love it

11. Sometimes its better to grow up then deny your responsibilities (i know boring right!!)

10. Yes people can be annoying, and yes you have to deal with it.

9. Even know my mother constantly disapproves of things i do, i know she loves me.

8. I have an addiction to Taylor Swift.

7. Also in love with Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy, Veronica Mars and One Tree Hill.

6. Traveling is my ultimate passion and I love planning overseas trips.

5. Blogging is my new favorite thing..

4. I give good advice to my friends but sometimes need to take my own advice instead of dish it out.

3. I have a man that loves me for me and I wouldn't trade him for anything (unless we're talking more then $100,000,000)

2. People grow apart and move on, and theres nothing wrong with that.

1. I'll always have my fun memories with the people I love to remind me of who i used to be and prepare me for who i'm still to become.

There ya have it folks. Those are 19 this I have learn't/accepted in the past year. Bring on being 20 wooohoooo!!

If its one thing school taught me...


Its that theres always going to be that one girl who seems to be naturally good at everything while you wither away trying your arse off but never get anywhere. Well good news is that, that one person continues to be perfectly good at everything after school, bad news is the rest of us continue to try ours arses off and still get nowhere. Now for someone like me being friends/colleauges with someone like that proves to be rather difficult. Because on the one hand I could be extremely happy for this person (because i'm supposed to be their friend) or just be extremely jealous and live in misery. The write answer seems apparent..but being me i always take the hard road. I just cant help it. My competitive streak takes over and I find myself constantly trying to be better then her and constantly failing. The most annoying thing is that we seem to be doing the same thing at work and shes getting better results, we seem to be at the stage in life yet she buys a house before me. I can't help but have some sort of resentment towards her, but that moves to the back of my mind when we talk because she is soo cool and nice. Grrrr some people have it all. Leave some for the rest of us.

Boy Meets Girl, Boy and Girl Fall Head Over Heals




I first met my beloved boyfriend in June 2007 when I moved to a new town and we were working together at a supermarket. I was still with a current boyfriend who had moved to this new town with me so naturally I tried to deny my feelings for Drama King. Me and my boyfriend at the time grew apart very quickly and i fell head over heals for Drama King. Now it wasn't the typical get together. We slept together for about a month prior to us becoming "official" and oh god we were going like rabbits (which all new couples do). Anyway i decided it was completely unfair to my boyfriend at the time because I was cheating on him. Which i know is completely unacceptable but it was very complicated. He had like moved with me from one end of the state to the other and was living with me and my family. So eventually I ended it with him and he took the next plane out. After awhile Drama King and I were together pretty much all the time and a stint with him kissing another girl pushed me over the edge and i told him i wanted to be an official couple and he agreed because naturally he had fallen hard for me and my charm.

So we were both completely smitten and I was always having sleep overs at his house. After about 6 months we decided we'd move in together because it was just convenient at the time. Now we soon realized it may have been a little premature. It was good in the beginning. Having our own little home (it was a 2 bedroom unit) and having the freedom to have sex anywhere at any time without worrying about anyone else. But all the problems began when his brother moved in with us (which i totally didn't agree with). His brother is fat, lazy, messy, basically all the most annoying things you can think of. And it caused a lot of fights between Drama King and I because I would have a go at his brother and Drama King would defend him. Things between Drama King and I were gradually sliding down hill. I would go out clubbing and he wouldn't want to go, and he didn't trust me so he was always pissed off when i would go out.

Eventually we had the opportunity to move into a 3 bedroom house that a colleague offered us to rent. So we moved into this house, but the problems didn't disappear and we had both gained weight and just weren't happy anymore. Finally on new years eve of 2008 we broke up mutually and I moved out the next day. After 3 months apart we realized how much we missed each other and still loved one another. Which is pretty easy to notice when I woke up to myself and realized the grass was defiantly not greener on the other side.

So now we are back together and never been happier, I think a lot of the problems were caused by his brother but we're leaving that in the past now. We've decided we're not going to move in together again until we're both ready and theres no rush, we're still young. I really appreciate him now more then ever because I am not an easy person to put up with haha. I complain a lot and am a bit blonde sometimes but he still loves me and I love him for that very reason. It defiantly takes a special person to take me just as I am and I hope that never changes.

Its been a bumpy road but we're still traveling along

Welcome to Me!!



So have u ever had a moment in life where something happens and you suddenly ask yourself where the heck is your life going? Well i'm pretty sure everyone has because we’re only human. Truth is i'm a self confessed drama addict. What is a drama addict i hear u ask. It is in fact someone-usually female however not a necessity- that makes everything into a big deal and thinks there life is like the Truman show- and for those who don’t know the Truman show is a Jim Carey movie and his life was a TV show without him even knowing. Drama addicts constantly think that everything that goes wrong in their life is just a twist in the complicated plot instead of an actual disaster. Which i suppose is ok if u live in a fantasy land. And is also ok if you are me. I never used to think i was addicted to drama, i just thought life was overly complicated and hard and i constantly had problems. One day i was unloading all my problems onto my mother and she took the liberty to tell me i was a drama addict. I obviously objected. Me? A drama addict, you have to be kidding me. I then proceeded to tell my mother that she was clearly delirious. After awhile when my life was still constantly dramatic i thought about what my mother had said. Hmm i suppose i do create problems out of thin air i thought. I never really know what side of an argument im on until i win of course. I don’t really have a point of view on most things and im always changing my mind about things ive already proclaimed to my adoring public which normally consists of my darling computer and my over the top in love some days and not the next boyfriend. My friends come into at some stage but they have their own drama in this story. Gosh see how complicated it is, well not really now i see it in writing, but this is just the beginning.

You see i belong to a generation that watch too many movies and get caught up in TV shows which seem real just a lot more dramatic. Everyone is constantly bagging out generation y and how we rely on technology and all the rest of it. (i don’t really pay attention) when really we use technology to make our lives more exciting just like everyone else. We are people too. We have our own thoughts and beliefs. So we’re not married at 15 and don’t believe in no sex before marriage. I always say try before u buy, because lets face it. You don’t want to return it. Now obviously some people don’t agree with that, but its as clear as day to me, if u don’t want to divorce sex before marriage is the key. Because it defiantly could create problems in later life no matter how much you love each other. And what would you do with your time if u did wait? Surely you'd be a tad curious, we all have a gutter in our brains somewhere, whether your a saint or not. And you can deny it all you want but i know the truth. You cant hide it when its written all over your saint-like face. Now this account is by no means meant to go public or get made into a book-even though that would obviously be a dream come true to a drama addict. Over night fame is the obvious dream for someone like me. Someone like me who hates work and makes everything harder then it is. And unfortunately for me i was blessed/cursed with a brain that even if i don’t try hard i still tend to be relatively ok at certain things. Which means i tend to learn my jobs very quickly and also get bored of them very quickly. Which also means that i have had a few too many jobs for my age. Now even though i have only lived 20 years of life i feel like i have had many life experiences, some great, some not so great. I told my mother today that she should feel old because she had me 20 years ago. Now thats 2 decades. Such a long time. But she reakons i still act like a child so it doesn't feel like 20 years. I then told her well its been a long 20 years for me. To get to my accomplished nothing of a life, but that'll change soon. You just wait. I'm sure ill be famous one day. Opportunities are endless when your 20, you've still got your whole life to decide what you want to do. Now i could list everything i've ever wanted to be, but i think it'd be shorter to write what i don’t want to be. Lucky for you i'm about to list neither. All you need to know is that at the top of the list write now is a travel agent. Now travel has always appealed to me. Its a kind of freedom you cant get staying in one place, its all the cultures you can experience, all the crazy things you can do, all the fantastic types of fun that u can have, real life changing experiences.

Now the only life changing experience from my first travel experience was the fact that i came home a slut, made overnight friends, and pretty much loved myself about as much as i could at that stage. What could u expect from a high school graduate that was going on her first solo trip. It was the most wonderful thing in my life. Thats when my life changed. Well my sex life anyway. Im sure your wondering where i actually went on this life changing experience. It was a schoolies cruise through the pacific, stopping off at New Caledonia, Lifou and Isle of Pines (the most beautiful place ive ever been), look it up. Basically it was so great because i was so wanted, all the gay arse high school boys never paid me much attention and they certainly weren’t paying attention when i bloomed into a hot little blonde. Thats why when i was on this floating orgy i was suddenly so popular with the opposite sex i just couldn’t resist. Anyway more on this juicy tell all about my sex life bit later.

Now im not entirely sure if I always start things and never finish them because of the whole “self confessed drama addict” or if its purely because i get bored then i get lazy. I vote the last one but i don’t think the decision is mine to make. Its all you guys. (My adoring fans of course is who im referring too) Now i am a uni drop out, undertaken many fad diets which never work, have countless un-used gym memberships and many unfinished stories. Which is probably how this one will end up (no fault of my own obviously)...anyways more on this later.
