perfection takes time

I have no homework.  Nothing, except to work on history extension.  I am so confused right now.  Surely there’s some massive project due in two days, or a hidden avalanche of homework somewhere.

wait yes there’s my maths

But anyway, have a proper blogpost, where I actually relay what happened in my life today, unlike the posts for the past year or so.

Today was OZCLO nationals, and at recess off we went to Macquarie University!  After a caffeine/sugar stop at Macquarie Centre, we headed off to campus and found the building, then realised we had no idea what room the competition was in.    Eventually we found our teacher/he found us, and we found ourselves in a small room, the eight of us (two teams) with four rowdy North Sydney girls.

All I can remember for the first half-hour was loud conversation, loud, loud and irritation.  And utter frustration at the second question.

Thanks to Emily, Jenny and Dodo yay still in awe about coming first in state eeeeeee it’s a pleasure being on your team.

For some reason I went back to school for Extension History and it wasn’t as soporific as usual and I think I shall have to defer my poster-buying to tomorrow.

Wow reading my post bored myself.

if i write enough of these, i’ll be able to rewrite Savage Garden’s “Affirmation” with them :D.

also that emoticons and full stops, commas, were never meant to get along.

some things were never meant to be let loose in public.

sometimes because of their sacred value, sometimes, just because.

so don’t do it.

fireworks are a sure-fire way to get someone’s attention.

but once the infinite moment is passed, it is but a mere memory with lasting impressions, and not a place to dwell.

life is like a series of fireworks; some excite, some disappoint.

but while life is there, there is no scope of time – only the facts and figures of history.

the beauty of life is in its temporal nature. there is only one direction time could pass.

Walt Disney once said: “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

keep moving forward

Walt Disney must have been a genius.

but then again, so must i.

Meet the Robinsons” is a good movie.

a reward is only “well-deserved” if you’ve worked hard for it.

but that is not the end.

in the words of Fay Weldon: “Ambition will, and should, always outstrip achievement.”

that’s right. I’m doing a “xiong-ky”.
