Not mine, but my lovely boyfriend's. It was yesterday and I decided to make him an awesome cake which I thought id share on here. Yes, I know there are millions of cakes like this online, and no i didnt take any of those recipe's, I used my own timeless white spongecake recipe and simply divided it into six colours. Really not that hard :P
So anyway- here it is:
Came out better than I had hoped. :)
I also made him a sweetawesometastic plushie:

We also had a picnic and then... I don't believe I am telling people this, but thereafter we watched New Moon.
I honestly have never laughed so hard in a packed movie theatre. It was hillarious:

*Actual lines from the movie.

Childish? yes...maybe- but man was it perfect timing.

Pretty much the only reason I will ever go watch it again would be because of, yep you guessed it:
Under aged bestiality ftw. Seriously, 17? I would definitely give him my name if he asked for it.

That all that happened this week.
Well, that and I am sick. Joy.

Death Rally

Oh man, my last entry was depressing.
I'm really not that depressed, sorry boutAlign Center that :)

So recently I have found many a childhood memory which I can now play again. I'm talking about PC games of course.
I found the best website : which allows you to play old school nintendo games for free online!!! My life is complete :)
This little discovery however, came at a price of my sanity and a good night's sleep, as; a few hours before, I had watched Paranormal Activity. This movie is really not for the faint of heart. No Jokes. I was so scared I could not sleep for almost a week. The reason for its scary rating is not only the "camcorder effect" of filming like Blair Witch, but because the characters are so damn believable and relatable. For those of you who dont know, it is about a woman who has been haunted since she was little, her now fiance thinks it would be funny to agravate the "ghost" only to find out it's not a ghost, but a demon and that it doesn't like messing with.
Man, scary does not describe this movie, absolutely terrifying comes close though.

So back to my nostalgia. After finding this little gem in the interwebs, I had an idea to look for my all time favourite DOS game: DEATH RALLY. And lo and behold I was in luck.
My dearest boyfriend quickly picked up how to install/use emulators, but I didn't want to go through all that, so I kept searching- only to find the lovely people at Windows to have turned it into a PC game(without having to use DosBox).

Yet again, with this discovery, I have a new onset of insomnia. Hooray :) But atleast this time its voluntery and not because I am scared of being dragged into a different dimension by a bored demon.

Hopefully I will update more soon.

The world's a happy place.

Oh man. keeping up with this thing is hard. Especially since I've discovered Restaurant City on Facebook. Seriously. Don't do it.

Ok, well since I've seemingly changed this blog to a slightly more personal "thing" I think I might just keep with it as a personal virtual punching bag(venting).

So here goes.

Why is it that people can't be happy? One theory by literary theorist Lacan is that language is the reason we will never be happy. No really, stay with me here- I actually kind of agree with him.
He explains that we are all born whole and happy. However, as soon as we learn words, we stray from that "wholeness". When we see ourselves in a mirror and have no language, we look at ourselves as a whole. One being. Completely happy.
We are taught about elbows and knees, arms and fingers. Now when we look at ourselves. We see elbows and knees. Not a whole person. We see imperfections and we can name them.
To compensate for this we seek a partner. Someone to make us feel whole. Someone who just "fits". Sadly, no one ever "fits", well, not really.

Thats how I see it, anyway.
Why can't we just be happy? Just be. Why do we constantly need SOMETHING to make us happy?
Everyone seems to be wearing a mask with a beautifully painted smiley face. Bright and yellow. When we feel alone, or sad or scared. We look around, slap bang into all these bright smiley happy faces. Not knowing that they too are simply masks.
Everyone seems so happy we think. We forget that we too are wearing our smiley mask, making us look just as happy.Everyone feels this way, sure- some more than others.
The optimists feel this way, yet have some strange ability to work through it like it will get better. The realists simply work through it as a means to an end. And the pessimists, well some just don't have the strength to work through it at all.

Why can't we believe that everyone is not out to hurt us? Not everyone wants to lie to you, or cheat on you or bring you down. Yet we firmly place that assumption on others, barely giving them the chance. Then get upset when we too arn't given a chance.

I wish I could see a whole. And not infest others with my irrational insecurities. Maybe then we could be happy.

Sigh. P.s- This
is pretty much what I get to wear at my new job.

I should be happy right?

I swear I am still alive and will update this page quicker.
I've been home (South Africa) for just over a month and have been shocked at how much things change when you've been gone for so long.
I have come to several conclusions and new ways of living my life, you might do well to follow the following crucial rules:
-nothing lasts forever, sad, true- treasure moments, move on.
-be grateful for your mother's home cooked meals.
-know that some people are only supposed to be in your life for a short while, but in that time you might learn more about yourself than you ever thought possible.
-you are stronger than you realize.
-turning 21 really isnt such a big deal.
-being 21 is a lot scarier than I expected.
-not having any future plans might be scary, but at least it isnt boring.
-people do not need role-models, they simply need friends who encourage them to be the best they can be.
-the only person you really need to impress is yourself.
-art makes most problems disappear.
-if art doesn't work, try acting.
-ive forgotten how fun reading is.
-the internet should not be your life.

This list will probably grow as I slowly remember all my new ideas.

Today might have been the best last day ever. I got to hang out with Andrea, watch an amazing film and score some free cake from the cute Mugg&Bean manager. All is good in the world, and tomorrow I will be back in Australia which means I will be able to present this page with more of my own art.

that will be all for tonight, oh and two of my new favourite films are The Fountain, and Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. Watch them, you will not be disappointed. Thanx for the movie night W, ily.

Sunday Blues

This is why I've never had a blog; I tend to forget about it. Luckily I actually have some readers (read: Dan) who asked me "So, when you gonna write more in your blog?" to which my initial response was; " *blank face* Oh crap. Yeah, alright- I'll do it tomorrow."
So here it is folks! Not much new- no amazing discoveries. However I did stumble upon this pic, which I've seen once before, but want to share with you now.
Hopefully one day, I will come up with something origional. Tomorrow I will have my kitten desexed as well as develop my first ever Holga film. I will post them tomoz, whether they are good or simply embarassing. Wish me luck.

Oh and for the record, today was a pretty good day.

Rainbow road

Here I am, yet another night staring at the screen typing away simultaneously between msn conversations, facebook updates and more importantly my Shakespeare essay. Yet again though, it seems when I have important assignments due I try hone in my other skills. I tried my hand at vector art but dayum that takes a long time. I will prob try again as soon as I am finished with my essay- but it did get me working with photoshop again. I've had this idea for a while now so this is just a quick version of it- havn't googled the idea yet for fear of someone doing it better than me.

Also- after recent events I am pretty sure Romance is dead. Don't know where that fits into my entry tonight but I guess I just needed to get it off my chest. Hmm, I feel better now.
