Wed-nes-days can be stressfully exciting.

Well, good morning little bloggers!
How have you all been? 'Cause I've been fantastic! Beside from the fact that I have way too much school work. Yesterday was a big day for me, I had two assignments due that I hadn't done, but somehow finished them, then it was my nieces birthday so we went and had dinner with her, but then, this crazy, ridiculous, I can't even believe it, thing happened.. I BOUGHT A CAR! That's right everyone, I, Elysia Claire Hannah Young, HAVE A CAR. It's so exciting! But I feel so old..
Now I just need to get my restricted licence.

I don't have a photo of my car right now, but when I can be bothered to take one I'll show you all. Because it's cool. You'll love it.

Now I'll tell you about my niece. Yesterday she turned nine, which is crazy! She's so old! Which is making me feel old.. I was only eight when she was born so it's weird to think she's now older than I was when she was born. But life goes on. And I'm old. But Brianna is cool, she's so clever and talented. Although she takes after me a bit too much, trust me Brianna, stubbornness will get you no where in life, it'll just make things harder.
Anyway, that's enough rambling, so I shall leave you with a photo of Brianna and cake.

Have a splendid day little munchkins!

Mumford and sons will be the death of me. Or possibly studying. But preferably Mumford and Sons.


I think it's safe to say that I'm not a regular blogger, so I shall not apologize for not writing in a very long while since I know none of you really missed me anyway.

But it has been quite a while since I last blogged, so I will not be able to fill you in on every little detail of what I've done, you'll just have to settle with knowing that I've been busy.

As we all know, I'm quite the procrastinator - I'm procrastinating right now to be quite frank. I'm supposed to be writing some assignments but instead I'm listening to Mumford and Sons and getting really upset because I'll never see them live. So I thought I'd blog about it.
So we all know that Mumford have really, really good lyrics, that actually mean something, unlike most music nowdays. And last night I was just listening to the songs and reading the lyrics, and they're songs can be pretty deep and meaningful. I'm not gonna be shy, I'm just gonna tell the world, I GOT WATERY EYES. That's right. Lecy, the girl that very rarely cries, got watery eyes reading Mumford and Sons lyrics. That's how deep they are.

I love that I was studying a poem by Shakespeare not too long ago and I realized Mumford and Sons wrote a song with some of his poetry. It was an exciting moment for me to realize my favourite band also likes literature.

I'll stop now, before I get carried away.


So over the summer I've done a great many things, such as sleeping. Annnnd that's pretty much it..
Kidding, I've done a lot, like a friend and I went on a road trip to Taupo and went on the Taupo cliffhanger, that was ridiculously amazing. I've been fishing with my parents, went to a couple of camps, ate chocolate on Valentines day, failed my restricted test a couple times, spend too much money, and drank a lot of coffee.
And that, my friends, is all I remember of my summer at this particular moment.


Now let me introduce you to some of my vaulting friends..

This, is Freyja, she's a special one ;)

And then there's Grace..

As you can see my vaulting team is clearly normal, esecially since I'm part of it.



I just want to take this moment to show you my eye ball.
By eye ball, I mean my eyeliner. I'm quite proud of it. I did it all by myself! Now I just need to work on being able to do both eyes evenly..


I think I'm done now.. Although I have a lot more photos I want to post, I think this blog is long enough to bore you all to death.

It's time to write boring assignments now. So if I never blog again, you know it's because I died writing assignments.

Bye bye little munchkins! I don't even know if any of you are little, but it sounded cute.

P.s, sorry for any spelling mistakes, I can't be bothered checking.

My inner black woman has escaped.

Wow, it's been a while.. But no time for apologizing for my absence, "Ain't nobody got time for dat," as my inner black woman would say.

Anyway, I've been rather busy recently. I'm working like crazy, and by crazy I mean I worked a 16 hour day on Friday, Then was back to work Saturday for a little 9 hour day. So I've been exhausted, but hey, my pay checks are getting fat.

But today, after being out all morning at church and having a nice picnic luncheon with some of my family I got home and had a nice peaceful afternoon of immersing myself in books, with a lovely cup of coffee.

Then, after reading a while, I had the best plan of my entire life (maybe not quite that good actually). I decided I would write a list of books for anyone who asks me out and tell them they have to read all the books on it before I even consider them to be a good friend.
My plan is perfect, because the list will just be growing continuously and no one would ever like me enough to read a mountain of books. 
After the first five minutes of list writing I had 13 books on the list. So after a week or so, imagine how many there will be! 
The list goes like this:

1. The Bible 
2. The Cross centered life, C. J. Mahaney
3. The Golden booklet of the true Christian life, John Calvin
4. Lord of the rings trilogy, J. R. R. Tolkien 
5. Narnia series, C. S. Lewis
6. Bondage of the Will, Martin Luther
7. The princess and the goblin, George MacDonald 
8. The Holiness of God, R. C. Sproul
9. Knowledge of the Holy, A. W. Tozer
10. Chosen by God, R. C. Sproul
11. Till we have faces, C. S. Lewis
12. Pride and prejudice, Jane Austin 
13. Pilgrims Progress, John Bunyan

As you can see, my favourite books are theological or fairytales, and by the time the list is complete I'll be dead, so no one will ever be allowed to be my friend. Unless of course they're girls, girls are okay I suppose.

Now I'm done boring you with my ways of scaring off all the boys I'll move on to something else..

Oh! I was feeling a tad creative before, so I wrote this cool thing on my mirror, "Beauty is fleeting, so gather wisdom with flowers." Not sure if I came up with it myself or if it's a quote that I can't remember correctly, but I like it nonetheless.

I honestly have no idea why this is titled what it is, but it was all I could think of and it was kinda amusing.

Well I best be off now, I've rambled enough for this month, it's time for sleep.

With coffee and sprinkles of unicorn love,

Lecy xx

Don't panic, I'm still alive

Oh hello there, lovely little bloggers! It's been a while, hasn't it? I'm sorry I've been absent so long, but I've been quite busy recently - and highly motivated to do nothing.

Well, I shall fill you in on a bit of what I've been up to lately.

This week was a stressful one; I had my brothers wedding on the weekend, then a mass amount of study before my English exams, and knowing me I had to leave everything till the last minute. 
My exams went okay I suppose, but we won't know if I passed till I get my results. I should pass though, I wrote the weirdest story for it. The person marking it will most likely think I was high or something. (I wasn't, I just have a very creative little mind.)

Enough about exams though! No one likes them. I'm so relieved they're over though.

I can't even remember what I last blogged about.. But I don't think I've shown you my new piercing. I got my Tragus pierced a couple of weeks ago with a friend, whose name is also Elysia, and it was really exciting.



This was after I cleaned it.. It was so gross and painful. I'm pretty sure this part was more painful than actually getting it pierced.


But then here it is, all clean and not in pain.
Don't you love it?! I love it. Then again, I just love piercings.
I was just Google searching ear piercings and I know where I'm getting my next one done, next two actually.

I don't know what else to tell you..

Oh, how about the fact that I can get my restricted licence in EIGHT DAYS! Yeah, that's right, I'll be able to drive by myself.

Gosh, I'm so tired. I think I'm going to crawl into bed and either watch a movie or read books all night.

Goodnight!

It's not because I'm home-schooled.

Well recently I've been getting 'labeled,' let me tell you, it sucks. It hasn't happened much, but a couple of times is enough. I've been told that since I'm home-schooled I know more about the Bible than school kids - which is true in some ways. Sure being home-schooled in a Christian family has strengthened my faith more than going to college would. But that doesn't mean I have to be categorized as the kid who knows the bible well 'cause she's home-schooled. Learning the Bible is my choice, not my parents. School people have just as much freedom to learn the things I do. So when people tell me I only know a lot about the bible because I'm home-schooled is offensive. I only know so much because I'm passionate about learning all there is to know about my faith. Anyone with a passion for something will do all they can to learn about it and stuff. It doesn't change whether you're home-schooled or not. I understand that its easier for me sometimes, but that's not an excuse to label me. Everyone has the ability to learn anything. I choose to learn about the Bible. Its my choice. Its something I'm passionate about. Its something every single Christian should be passionate about. But barely any Christians nowadays actually take time out of their 'busy' lives to read and dwell on Gods word. Its not because they go to school, its because they have weak faith and because they are ignorant to the importance of really knowing God. They don't get the point that they need to learn things themselves, they can't just go to church on Sunday and then forget about being a Christian for the rest of the week. God doesn't want lukewarm followers, He wants us all to be burning hot. How will we ever be burning for Him if we never stop to listen to Him by reading our Bibles? We won't. We actually have to set aside time for a daily Bible reading or just time to pray. I know its hard, I still struggle to do it. But its the only way that we will ever truly be fully on fire for God. 
So stop watching TV, log off Facebook and go read your bible. What'll be worth more in the long run? Your intelligence on the show you just watched, or the knowledge of your Lord and Saviour? One does not simply gain knowledge by doing nothing, one gains knowledge by studying. "What comes easy won't last, what lasts won't come easy."
So stop telling me I know my Bible well because I'm home-schooled, I know as much as you could. You just lack the discretion to learn.

Hmmm
This ramble was aimed at no one in particular, just something that's been on my chest for a while and has finally escaped.

Anyway, on a brighter note, I went shopping today. It was one of those totally unexpected shopping trips that come out of nowhere yet are amazing cause you get some cool stuff. I'll show you the lovely things I got another time, it's a bit late to play dress ups.

Another thing, has anyone ever just randomly gone out to their back yard one night and done a work out? 'Cause I did that tonight. It was surprisingly nice. I think it'll be a new hobby of mine. Working out in the dark.. Even though it wasn't dark since I had the outside lights on. But I have a feeling the reason I'm still awake is because I did a workout at around 10:30 p.m, probably not the smartest thing I've ever done, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I can also feel that my arms will be in agony tomorrow. But I need to get real tank arms for vaulting next year. So pain is my friend.

Has anyone noticed yet that I ramble a lot when I'm tired? I have.. I don't know why, but everything just seems to come out when I'm tired and can't sleep.
So maybe I should stop before I say something I'll regret..









 Anyway, I'm really tired and I have no idea if this blog even made sense. So please excuse me if it doesn't, but mind you it's almost 3 a.m. So I have a valid reason if it doesn't make sense.

Before I leave, here is a picture that displays my nerdiness.
Yay, I don't get that at all!
Am I meant to say Good morning now, since it's 3 a.m, or do I still say goodnight?
I guess that's a mystery I shall never know the answer to.
So I'll just play it safe and say,
Bye!

Wed-nes-day.

Oh hello, little bloggers! I bet you're surprised I actually got around to doing a 'Wardrobe Wednesday' on a Wed-nes-day! I know, I'm also quite astounded. 

So this is what I wore:

The shirt was 'borrowed' from my mothers wardrobe. As you can tell it's really pretty and suits me well, so she won't be getting it back any time soon. Sorry mum..


The skirt was a bargain from Pagani. Only $10. 


Then I made a daisy chain, daisy chains are free. But you can't really see it..
My shoes on the other hand, were far from free.. They cost me $70! Which is amazing considering the original price for them was about $180. I won that game. 



Once I was done trying to get decent photos of my clothing, I decided it was time for swings so I could release my inner child for a short while. Kidding, I don't have an inner child, I'm just a child in a big kids body.


Oh hey! You can see my cute daisy chain in this photo. Isn't it stunning? Thank you, I made it myself.

Would you like to know what my mummy got for me the other day?
SHE GOT ME A TEA SET! It's so cute! 
But I think she's trying to tell me I should be more girly without hurting my feelings..



Don't you love it?! She got me a set of four cups, milk jug, sugar bowl and a tea pot for only $15!
I love it!
Tea party at Lecys.

I'm procrastinating. So I should leave.. But before I do I shall leave a quote with you to dwell on while I'm absent.

"Holiness is not a merit by which we can attain communion with God, but a gift of Christ, which enables us to cling to Him, and to follow Him." ~ John Calvin

Well, I'm going to go cry in the corner since my kindle app isn't working. So no reading John Calvin tonight. *Insert miserable face here*

Time for Lecy to study! By study I mean procrastinate.

Bye!

I was social for two weeks, that's enough socializing to last a year at least.

So, this afternoon I'm going to inform you of why I always nap. I haven't always enjoyed having naps, but I do now. Well, the reason I started having naps is simple. I wanted to hide from reality. Without it being bad and destroying my life. I guess a year or so ago I would just lay on my bed and fall asleep to numb the pain of reality. It was my way of dulling the pain for a bit. Because when I would wake up everything would seem less real, until someone would talk about it again. But yeah, sometimes I sleep because I can't handle things in life. You could say it's my way of crying since I rarely cry. But normally I just sleep cause I love it. And when I say I wanted to hide from reality, I'm not implying that my life was extremely bad, it was just hard and sometimes I couldn't cope, so I slept.
Yeah, so that's why I nap so much now I guess.. It's just become a habit. Plus I'm always tired.


Shall we move on from nap time to how I handled not reading for almost two whole weeks? Yes, yes we shall.

I DIDN'T HANDLE IT. Gosh, I was so close to death from my lack of reading. Tonight my brain will most likely decide that it wants to catch up the two weeks in one night. I won't complain till the morning when I have to get up for work. But oh well. This week, or all of tonight, I'm going to be studying 'Aeneid' by Virgil. I'm really excited. Also I'm going to finish my Essay on predestination. You guys can't read it. I'm so cool, I write essays for fun. I know you're all jealous of my nerdiness and supreme coolness. But jealousy is a sin, so you'll need to get over it..


I've also come up with another reason as to why I can never possibly get married; no man will ever be able to understand my passion for learning and stuff. So they'll get jealous and I'll feel mean. So I'll be nice and never love anyone. Just books. And horse vaulting.
I suppose if I ever met a guy who was as excited about learning the same things as me, I might consider him as a possibility - but that's very unlikely. 'Cause if he was smart he'd probably be very cocky, which would be so unappealing. So I can't get married. I'm too smart for that. 

 I feel like I should tell you about what I did over the holidays but I really can not be bothered. So instead I'll just share some photos of my friend and I. We're quite physically attractive. (Inside joke..)






The Platypus face is the new duck face. It'll be huge soon, you'll see. All thanks to me.


I'm done. By done I mean I want to go read forever now.
So goodnight goofy goobers.
