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,

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.

It is definitely past nap time.

I'm really tired. 
I'm so tired that I was making a huge mess of the food I was eating a few minutes ago. Then I was thinking to myself that I should wear a bib. Then I suddenly realized, that babies probably wear bibs when they eat since they're always tired.
I am so incredibly smart when I'm tired.

Now that we know how tired I am, let's not be mean if this blog makes absolutely no sense at all.

So I've been thinking a lot lately about people who define themselves as 'christians' and how they live, etc. I don't want to offend anyone with this blog, but I most likely will, so I'm sorry. But, as the great Martin Luther once said, "Peace if possible. Truth at all cost." Truth these days is often offensive, but only because so many people believe lies. "The truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that unless we love the truth, we cannot know it." Blaise Pascal

Anyway, I've been thinking about how weak Christians are these days, and how they treat God as if He was equal with us. So many people have lots the respect for God that He deserves. I know God loves us, and He wants to be our friend, but He still is the Creator of the universe and deserves our respect. Like when we pray, we shouldn't pray as if God was our friend and we're chatting on the phone, we're told how we should pray in the Lords prayer. That prayer begins with praising God, glorifying Him and asking for His will to be done. God is not our equal. We do not deserve to even be able to pray to Him. So we should be thankful that we can, and we should remember that He has a right to our respect.

I forgot everything else I was going to say, but it'll come back to me eventually so I'll write about it then.

Can I tell you all a secret? 
I don't need your permission, so I'm going to tell you anyway.

When I grow up, I want to be like Martin Luther. I want to start a reformation. I WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD! I'm determined that I will write books that Martin Luther would read and learn from (even though he was super smart). But that's my life goal, to start a reformation and show Christians how weak they are in their faith.

I have no idea what the point of this blog was, all I know is that it probably makes no sense and will just end up offending a whole heap of people. But I'll read over it when I'm less dead.

I shall leave now. But here is a song for you to listen to while I'm gone.

I have work tomorrow, and I'm going to die.

So long, everyone! If I don't die tomorrow I might come back and write another blog.. But who knows.

Lecy learnt three things today

'You learn something new everyday.' Well then, today must have been a triple day. Or maybe I'm just smarter than the average person.. 
Right, getting to the point.. I learnt three things today. 

1. 
The word 'Amuse' pretty much means, 'No muse,' which means no thinking.. Kinda. My brother worded it better, but it was 5 am so I don't remember it perfectly. But isn't it interesting that we're always 'amusing' ourselves? In other words, never thinking deeply about something. Just doing the norm. 
Interesting thought there..

2.
I'm awkward when it comes to vlogging.

3.
I passed my English exam. Plus, my high score was in the top 35% out of all of NZ and the pacific.. I don't really care about that. But I did like the fact that almost all my answers were above the average school kids. That's right, I'm kinda smart.
But lets wait and see what I get for my maths exam.. 

Anyway, this is just a little blog since I did a vlog for you all. I'm sorry it's weird, but I really had no idea what I was doing.. But I thought it was slightly funny so I'm sharing it with you.
Enjoy!



I'm sorry I sound really manly.. I have a really sore throat. I don't normally sound that manly.
Just sayin'


I hope you liked my vlog! I'm probably going to regret making soon..

Confession time; the two people I would consider marrying.

I'm not sure how many of you are already aware of this, but I'm a bit of nerd. For those of you who know me, I know what you're thinking, 'A bit of a nerd?!' Okay, so maybe I'm a huge nerd. But that's just apart of me that we all love.

Anyway, the reason I'm confessing that I am ridiculously nerdy, is because I have a story to share. Stories are always better when you know a bit of back ground information, so I needed to inform you all that I'm a nerd in order for you to fully understand this particular story.

Any-who, I went to the library twice last week. We all know that when Lecy goes to the library, she means business. So all together I got seven, not little, but all rather massive, books. I was perfectly confident that I would be able to finish reading my seven books within three weeks. I mean, come on, I love reading! Three weeks is plenty. All was well till I had a panic attack last night. I realized I didn't actually have three weeks. I only have one and a half, due to the fact that I'm going away. How am I ever going to manage to finish them all now?! I shan't. So now I'm sad. But I shall march on, I'm a survivor. It won't be the end of the world.

Now that I'm on the topic of confessions I shall continue you to confess things you may, or may not know.

Recently I've been studying a bit of philosophy. It hurts my head, and a nap is always needed to make it better. But today I didn't nap, perhaps I'm becoming a bit of a philosopher myself.. Hmm.. 

I got sunburnt yesterday. Turns out it wasn't a good idea to study outside all day.. But sunburn is better than sunscreen.

Last night a friend of mine asked me, "how to be less lovey dovey.' I'm now training her in my wise ways. 
I'm kidding, my ways aren't that wise (I am training her though).. Well, in some things they are, but in others not some much.. It really shouldn't be so hard for me to open up to people. But as soon as I do open up to someone I always end up getting hurt, so what's the point?

I came to the conclusion the other day that I should be more open to the idea of marriage. 'Cause I've noticed (and been told frequently) that the people who are so unwilling to get married, always do. And those who wish to get married never do. So I made a plan in my head. I'll pretend like I could possibly get married, that way I never will. It's brilliant. I'm quite the genius when I want to be.


I think confession time is over. I really don't know what else to say..
So I'll just post pictures, I'm good at that game.

I just want to write beautiful things, even if nobody cares to read them 


Mumford & Sons<3
I just thought I'd remind you all of how much I love Mumford and Sons.
If I ever met Ben or Winston, I would most likely marry them. (only one of them..)
In case you don't understand, Ben is the accordion player, and Winston is the banjo player. Marcus, the singer, is married so I can't marry him. I'm not sure whether or not Ted, the double bass player, is married.
So I'd have to marry Ben or Winston.
If I had to get married, those would be my two options.
Maybe I'm weird, but no one, and I mean no one, is nearly as cool as those guys.


Okay, I really need to finish my English and Maths. Philosophy took too long today so I haven't done anything else yet.. I'm so slack.

Bye bye, boogers! 
(You really should wipe your nose before you come next time, I don't appreciate it.)

10 reasons why I can't get married.

My dear little boogers, I'm awfully sorry, I had something really important to blog about this afternoon.. But I forgot.. How convenient! Now I'll just have to ramble. I know you all enjoy my nonsense.

So, after church this morning I was talking to my cool sister-in-law, Milly, and she was telling me not to be scared of getting married and stuff. But I'm not scared of marriage, it just isn't something that I desire like some people. If God wants me to get married, I'll have to get married. But I'm hoping (and praying) that I don't have to get married. Because I just can't see myself as a house wife.. Yesterday Abby told me I'd make a good little house wife since I love baking and stuff, I just laughed.

Anyway, I thought I should make a list of reasons why I don't want to / can't get married.
Plus, if I can think of any, I'll make a list of why I would get married (that would be difficult for me though).

Reasons to not get married:

1. Guys are dumb.
If you're a guy, please don't be offended. But I grew up with five older brothers, so I think I've lived with enough guys to last a lifetime.

2. I have issues with expressing my love. A guy just wouldn't be able to handle my lack of love, so I'd be nice and just not love him. It's the best for both of us.

3. Everyone marries their best friend, right? Well that's impossible for me since mine is a girl. And no one will ever replace her. So I think guys would get jealous that I'd spend more time with her, etc.

4. Kissing is gross.

5. I just don't want to, do I need more reasons? 

6. Marriage would ultimately result in kids. I don't want kinds.

7. Someone once told me that they think I'll be married by the time I'm 22, so I've accepted the challenge to not be married.

8. I wouldn't have enough time for reading if I was married. So obviously I can't marry, since reading is way more worth while.

9. As stated previously, in #1, I have five brothers. All of whom (well most of them) are rather protective. I can't even have a guy friend without them questioning me on who he is. Plus, no guy would ever be able to pass the tests they have to see whether or not they're good enough for me.

10. No guys would marry me. Well, that's what I tell myself anyway. Because then I have no choice.

I'll stop now, but I could keep going.

Let us move on to the next list.
Reasons why I should get married:

1. I shouldn't.

Well, that's a short list.. Possibly because I shouldn't get married.

Now that I've finished that task, would you like to know more random facts about me? I really don't know what else to write about..

When I'm tired I go switch between two extremes, depending on how tired I am, I'm either really social, or beyond anti-social. Most of the time it's the latter, but sometimes I just won't shut up when I'm tired. It's quite entertaining, I talk to myself when I'm in those moods, since my parents don't appreciate my non-stop chattering.

I enjoy playing with play dough. But seriously, who doesn't?! 

I WANT TO GO TO UNIVERSITY AND STUDY GREEK AND LATIN CLASSICAL STUDIES! AND I'M REALLY EXCITED!!!!!! But I have to wait like, three years since I want to go to Bible college first. Which is also very exciting.
My life  
Anyway little boogers, it's bed time! When I refer to bed time I usually mean it's time for me to give up on life for the night and read books instead.
So that's what I shall do now.

See you all next time! (I'm kidding, half of you won't have even got this far).

So Friday isn't Monday?!

To begin this blog, I'm going to tell you what I did yesterday. It was pretty hilarious, and I actually can not believe that I did it.
So, you know when you wake up and you're just so tired because you didn't have a great sleep or something? And you think it's a certain day, but then soon realize that it is in fact, a different day? Well, the first and second things happened to me. I woke up and, I have no idea why, I thought it was Monday. I didn't figure out that it was Friday till later. Anyway, I went to work and everything, still thinking it was Monday the 13th. So when I went to sign in for the day, I thought the person who worked the previous day was ridiculous! They had put down Thurs the 12th. It still did not occur to me that it was Friday. So I put in Monday, but not the date, cause by that time I was frazzled. Long story short, I realized a while later that it was Friday, laughed at myself, and then one of the work supervisors came and informed me that I got the day wrong. 

Then, at about 9 p.m. I decided that it was the perfect time to do what was probably the best workout of my life. I skipped for 20 minutes with no stops (excluding the times I tripped myself up for a second), held plank for 3 minutes something and then did lots of squats, push ups, ab stuff etc.

So yesterday was a good day, but then today was also a very good day.
I made caramel brownie. Flip, it's incredible! 


After I had done all my Saturday cleaning I went for a lovely bike ride to the beach to do a Bible reading. I love doing Bible readings at the beach, it's just so nice and calming.



After that though, it was time for a trip to the library! I got out three random books.

Want to know what else I did today? I BUILT A FORT! I know, it is pretty sweet. 
After dinner, and once Alastair and Alisha had gone, I ran down the stairs yelling, "I'M GOING TO BUILD A FORT AND YOU'RE NOT INVITED!" I'm not sure who I was yelling at, but whoever they were, they weren't invited.


Just chillin' in my fort. I'm pretty sure this is a #YOLO moment, don't you think?
Nothing beats a wicked sweet fort.


Oh, guess what I got today? That's right! A new Victoria's secret spray. It smells A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Thanks Lish! Haha, I love that she is an air hostess so she gets discounts on duty free stuff. Also, she's really cool. 



Okay, it is time to get serious. I've had some things on my mind today, and I need to let it all explode in the form of blog.

Today I've been thinking about how so many people are insecure and all that stuff. And how everyone is always trying to impress others. Why? I don't know. But it's silly. People do things to themselves to get others to like them, but what's the point if you can't even like yourself? It's strange, it seems like everyone lives to please others, when really the only person we need to please is God.
I know that I might be sounding like a hypocrite, since I've done things just to impress people. But everyone is insecure at some point. 
But, I'm no longer living to please people. I'm living to please God, and I'm going to be the person He wants me to be, and who I want to be. I will no longer be different around different people because I'm worried about what they'll think of me. If they can't handle me, tough. I'm learning to love myself. Not in a vain way, but in a way that I am who God wants me to be. I know I'm not perfect, but neither are you. So when people judge me for wearing make-up, or for when I don't, I'll just remember that I'm not living for them. If I want to wear make-up, I'm gonna wear it, however the flip I want. And if I'm too lazy for make-up, I don't care. God thinks I'm beautiful with, or without. So stop living to please others. I'm not saying you don't need to care about other people, you still need to respect them and if they don't like something you do, just don't do it around them. But don't go changing yourself so they'll accept you, because they wouldn't be accepting you, they'd be accepting a shell of who you really are. Live your life to please God. If you're living to please Him, the world isn't going to accept you anyway. As Christians, we will be persecuted for loving God, but that won't stop us.

I'm not going to apologize for that long ramble, but I will apologize if I came across as vain, or conceited, I was not trying to be. But I am who I am, and I love me. What's the point in disliking yourself? You'll never be happy if you can't live with yourself.

So cheer up, buttercup. Pick up your tiara, wipe your tears and be who God has made you to be. You are the daughter of the most High King. 


I am who I am, flaws and all. I'm so far from perfect, but I'm saved by Amazing Grace.
Don't be embarrassed about yourself. EMBRACE YOUR UNIQUENESS! No one can do what you do, how you do.





I'm off to think of more things to share with you next time.

Goodnight, little boogers. (It's like bloggers, but cooler.)

Wardrobe Wed-nes-day.


So, it's Wed-nes-day, I thought I should try and do a wardrobe Wednesday on Wednesday for once. So I have. I didn't wear the grandest clothes today, just comfy, stay at home and study all day, kinda clothes. Those are my favorite.

I wore this bad-ass Cardigan. It cost me a ridiculous 25 cents! I know, how could something this cool, be that cheap?! It's bazaar. 

And I wore some black skinnies, but no one cares about them. But you do care about my cute as monkey socks. I know, they're totes adorable. 

Enough about my snazzy socks though, let's get on to business.

Have I mentioned that I went to Christchurch for the weekend? Well, I went to Christchurch for the weekend. For my cousins twenty first. I had a blast. There was a bouncy castle and everything.
I LOVE BOUNCY CAST:LES!
Also, it was nice seeing all my cool cousins again.

This though, was the pretty view I got on my flight down south.

I stayed with my sister-in-law-to-be on the Friday night. 'Twas excellent. We made cupcakes and stuffs..

This is a couple of my cousins and I on the previously mentioned bouncy castle. Sorry the photos are blurry, but what do you expect on a bouncy castle? 



I know we're weird. But that's how we roll. 

OH, GUESS WHAT EVERYBODY! 
Lecy doesn't learn from her mistakes. She makes the same mistake, over, and over, and over again.
I cut my fringe again. Last week, I liked it. Now, it's annoying. I've done this about three times now, yet I still haven't learnt that I don't enjoy the full fringe. Although, this time I did it more accidentally than willingly..I'm not going to share the story with you. I will leave you in suspense for the rest of your lives. Or till I feel like sharing.


*Subject change*
I recently made a kindle account.. So the other day I went crazy and got over 20 books all at once. I felt like such a nerd. I loved it. I have yet to finish reading all the books, but I'm making progress. So far I've read about 2 and a half. Along with all my real books that aren't on my phone. I mainly got books by Martin Luther, George MacDonald, John Bunyan and Charles Spurgeon.
Have any of you read, 'The Princess and the goblins,' by George M? If you haven't, I recommend you do. It's amazing. I haven't even finished reading it, but I already love it. Just the way he writes it is amazing. I honestly prefer old books to new ones. The way of writing was just so much more capturing and enjoyable. Well, that's what I think anyway. When I write books I want them to be as great as George MacDonalds. 

Lecy is going to study Philosophy now.
I'll see you cool kids later.

Wednesday, 28 August 2013

It's Wed-nes-day night.

Guess what? It's Wednesday night. I know what you're thinking, "We know that Lecy, we're not stupid." But you are, since you don't know why I'm excited. Unless you do know why I am.. In that case you're not as stupid as I thought you were. But anyway, for those who don't know, I'll let you know why I'm excited. IT'S PAY DAY TOMORROW! Yay. I worked three days last week so this pay will be glorious. And I shall put lots of it in my savings for my car. Kidding, I'll pay my mother off... And then what's left will go to my savings.. I hope..

Any-who, I sent my phone away again yesterday. I'm so grumpy that the dumb people didn't even fix it. They just took my hard earned money. But at least I don't have to pay again. Let's just hope they actually fix it.

Just like every Wed-nes-day, I was going to do a wardrobe Wed-nes-day, but didn't get around to it.. I even put on cool clothes and everything. But it's just too much effort for me to take selfies sometimes. But maybe next week I'll do it.. But we all know I probably won't.

Oh, did I tell you, last Friday, when I was talking to my best friend, she asked me if I was drunk. SHE ASKED ME IF I WAS DRUNK. Because apparently, that's the kinda thing she expects me to do while my parents are away. Pfffft. I would never do that. I was just ridiculously tired from a hard days work. Also, reading till the early morning didn't exactly help my sleepy issue.. But I wasn't drunk.

Then today I was talking to her again. She didn't think I was drunk this time, which was good. And we had the most hilarious conversation about what it would be like to have kids. Then we were talking about how we can both vaguely remember this one time at my old house when our mums were hanging out we were both just causally having a feed. And by feed I mean breast feed. It was hilarious. I think I would have been like two or something so Abby must have been about three. I can confidently say that we've both re-decided we're not having kids. It's just.. ugghhhh. 

Then I was complaining about how I shouldn't complain about my boobs on my blog, so Abby was all like, "Just do it. It's funny." And other stuff I've forgotten. So I will. I just want you all to know something, I.HATE.BOOBS.SO.MUCH.
There, I let it out. I feel so much better now.

Now that I've begun talking about weird things no one cares about, I shall continue by sharing a story with you.
So tonight, I was doing a bit of a work out, cause that's what I like to do. And then I do lots of stretching and stuff after my work out. So I had almost finished, I just wanted to stretch my bridge. So I did and I held it for a bit, then we I came down, I felt like I was being stabbed by over 10 and 21 millions of knives. I was literally lying on the ground, withering in pain, for about 10 minutes. No exaggerations. So I've learnt from that to NEVER EVER stretch your bridge when you're on your period. NEVER.

 Moving on, because that is a awkward subject that I don't like talking about.

Have I told you that I've decided what I want to write my first book on? No, I haven't, because I only had the great idea this morning. Well, I want to write it set in ancient Greece. And it will be a mystery/horror book. But that's all you can know. Otherwise it'll be ruined.
I need to do lots of research about Ancient Greece before I actually start writing, but that's okay since I love that kind of history.

I need your opinion on something, should I, or should I not, dye my hair ginger? 
Let me know what'cha think.


Anywya, here's a funny photo for you all since my blog was slightly boring tonight.
So true.
And, here are some inspiring quotes. 
Yes!

what is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable? - John Green

I'm finished now. So I shall make my awkward departure like always.

Bye bye, little unicorn-trainees.
We both know you only read my blogs to learn the way of the unicorn. No need to hide it, it's nothing to e ashamed of. Embrace your inner unicorn. Unless you don't have one.. In that case, just embrace your inner weird, everyone has that.

Lecy had a massive party. By herself.

*Running around in circles, trying to catch my unicorn tail.* 
Don't be jealous, we can't all be unicorns. Let alone cool unicorns that chase their tail. But luckily I am one of the few. So I will tell you about my glorious weekend filled with unicornness.

Well, the parents left sometime on Friday while I was at work, escaping while I wasn't home so they felt less guilty. I got a ride home with a work mate. Then the party of one had finally begun. I'd been waiting all day to get home just so I could hang out by myself and read with music playing loudly.

But, before I could read I had to make myself dinner. Because my parents don't love me enough to leave me a cooked dinner.. So I made the yummest chicken kebabs ever, with a side of potato wedges.
Omnomnom.




Then I read all night. Okay, not all night, but close, I couldn't read too much since I had work on Saturday which kinda killed the Friday night party. But at least I got to finish work two hours early on Saturday. Then Abby picked me up from work and we went to my house, had ice coffees and read our books together in the afternoon sunshine. T'was lovely. The dog attacked us. It was hilarious.
Then Abby left, and it was just me all alone. So the party began again. So I cooked. Then read. But then I finished my book so I didn't know what to do with myself so I cleaned. Weird right? But I cleaned for about two hours, then I got a new book and went to bed to read that one.
Then all I've been doing today is dancing around the house to Mumford & Sons playing really loudly. I also fell asleep outside when I was reading in the afternoon. Now I'm the slightest bit sun burnt, and it isn't even summer yet! But I guess that's what you get when you fall asleep in the sun for almost an hour..

But now my parents are home the glorious party has come to an end.

So I have decided I will build a blanket fort tonight. Because that's what all the cool unicorns do when the party ends. It's like the sprinkles on cupcakes. Unnecessary, but totally cool and exciting.

  
These are some pretty flowers I picked today whilst I was partying outside.

Pedro and I went for a bit of an adventure on Saturday night.

Sadly though, I don't think I'll be left home alone again for a very long time. My mum doesn't seem to like the fact that I loved being home alone. Seriously though, I LOVED it. I think I enjoy my own company too much.. Oh well.

Well, the unicorn must go back to reality now. Also, she needs to go to bed since she has work in the morning. *Very over dramatic, sad sigh* Why do all good things come to an end? No, I didn't just start singing that song by Nelly Furtado...

Lecy the unicorn has to leave now because she forgot what else she was going to blog about..

Adios to all my non-unicorn friends!
Even though I don't have any friends..
So I'm pretty much talking to myself. Well, that sounds about right.

Lecy x

Wow, I just kissed myself too.. My level of weird just keeps increasing.

Parents are abandoning me for the weekend, and all I got was ice cream.

Hey Chumps! I'm not sure if that's the word I'm looking for but that's the word I'll use. It sounds cool in my head so it's okay.

I'm sorry if my blogs have been rather dull lately, I haven't really done anything exciting to share with you all. Okay, I'm lying. I have, but I don't have time to blog about all the awesome stuff I do. Ain't nobody got time for that. *previous sentence said with a lot of black woman attitude,* Mmmhmm.


Since I have a bit of spare time tonight, I shall share with you what I did today. I only have spare time because I'm procrastinating. I can't remember what I'm procrastinating for, but I'm pretty sure I am meant to be doing something important..

Well anyway, I went to the beach. 

Where I found myself a pretty sweet fort. It had shell flooring and everything! I didn't build it, but I sure did claim it! I pretended I had some Maori blood and claimed the piece on beach that it was on.


Yeah, then I pretty much just took heaps of photos of the sunset and the stuff..


Oh for that one I felt really cool hiding behind the fence..




Aww and this is Bam Bam. He's so adorable. I didn't hang out with him today, this photo was taken on Tuesday.

I was about to go on a rant and start telling you all about what I learnt in history today but I thought I wouldn't cause you guys won't get as excited about it as I did.

Oh, funny story guys. I was just walking down the stairs with a nice hot cup of tea in one hand and the telephone in the other. Then I split my tea all down my legs. I was going to type, 'split the phone,' but I didn't spill the phone.. On the bright side I had warm legs.

Right, I have an announcement to make.
My parents are leaving me home alone this weekend.
This, is a big deal. They've never trusted me enough to leave me all alone allllll weekend. So I'm really excited. But I can't throw a huge party or something crazy cause I'm working.. Which kinda ruins it. But I'll still do lots of crazy stuff by myself.
Hehehehehhehhehehehehe.

It's going to be strange coming home from work to an empty house. No one to yell at me when I don't wash the dishes or make too much noise. It'll be grand! It will just be me, myself, and all the wonderfully loud music I'll be playing.
Lezbehonest though, we all know I'm probably going to freak out when it comes to night time.
Or I'll be too busy reading to notice.

The only down side it that I'll have to cook for myself.. Ugh, I'll most likely just live off toast.

I'm pretty sure I had some other funny things to tell you all, but I've forgotten. So I shan't tell you. Because I can't.

Any-who, I'm off to dwell in my imagination until reality comes in the morning and I have to go to work.

Goodnight champs.
You're all champs now cause you survived reading this whole blog.

Lecy is going to fly with her magical unicorn friends now!

Lecy x

P.s. My lovely mother just bough me ice cream for the weekend. I'm pretty sure it's cause she feels bad for abandoning me.

Wednesday, 21 August 2013

It's like I'm on a roller coaster, but I'm not even moving..

Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool? This is when you say no, now stop singing Lecy, you suck. 
Fine, I'll stop. But only cause I can't sing when I'm trying to hold back all my tears.

Anyway.. How have you all been recently? You don't have to answer, I was only being polite.

How have I been, did you say? I've been swell. Only because my passenger tickets arrived today though, other than that I've been pretty average really.

I made the stupid decision to stop vaulting for a while the other day. Hardest decision of my life. And now I'm at the stage where I'm really regretting it. But I need to have a break and sort my life out and regain my focus on God. I realized that I was idolizing my vaulting, so I needed to take a break. 
I'm cut in two with how I feel about stopping, half of me is saying that I'll be happy soon, while the other half is telling me that I'm an idiot for leaving. But I know that once I've got my priorities right I can go back. 
Ohhh, but since I still help a lot at the vaulting club I'll get to do some riding. So that'll be fun. But not nearly as much fun as vaulting..

Moving on..

I GOT MY PHONE BACK!!!
Yay! I was so excited when it arrived early Monday morning, just before I went to work.
But then a terrible thing happened when I got home, I tried playing music on my headphones BUT IT STILL DIDN'T WORK. I was really mad. I paid fifty dollars and went around phoneless for a couple weeks AND THE STUPID PEOPLE DIDN'T EVEN FIX IT. Ugh. I'm still mad, in case you hadn't noticed. 
So now I have to send it back so they can fix it properly. At least I don't have to pay this time.

Do you guys know what I'm doing right now? That's correct, I am indeed procrastinating. But only because I really dislike maths a lot. So I'm not going to do it today. I'll just finish writing my essay on the difference between the law of God and His grace. That's way more beneficial than maths. Well I think it is.

Do you want to know what I did on the weekend? Of course you do, that's obviously why you're reading this.
Well, I was staying with my bestie, Abby, and we had a bit of a Hannah Montana marathon. It was amazing. We did some other stuff but that wasn't as cool.

Well, it's dinner time now folks so I better be going now.
It was good to catch up. Even though we only talked about me.. But you still enjoyed it.

*Bows*
You're welcome.

Lecy had to sleep with the light on.

I would like to start by telling you a short story about me. 

The other night I was reading this book I got out from the library. It was by an author that I know. I thought it was just a nice book, but no. It started talking about witches and stuff. It got really freaky and I got scared. Needless to say, I slept with my lamp on that night. That's the first time that's ever happened to me with a book. I normally don't get scared easily.. But it wasn't a good idea to be reading scary things in the early hours of the morning.
What did lecy learn from this? Always read the back cover carefully and make sure it doesn't mention the word, 'horror.' 
In the morning I woke up confused as to why the light was on. Then I remembered and laughed at myself. 

Anyway, you don't really care about how I get scared reading horror books.

So I'll tell you what's been happening for me this week.

Monday I did lots of studying. Then my lovely sister took me on a horse trek. It was nice.

Tuesday I had a horrible maths exam. Ew. Then I had vaulting so the end of the day was good.

Today is Wednesday. I woke up at 5:30 am for no reason. My body just decided 6 hours sleep was enough. It's regretting it now.
Today I have lots of Maths, English, History, Music and that kinda stuff to do. So I thought I should start the day off with some procrastinating. 

Also, I need to get back into making really cool stuff. I haven't done much of that recently..

OH FLIP! GUESS WHAT?! I GET MY PHONE BACK SOON!!! 
I'm so happy I could almost do a happy dance. But too tired.. Seriously though, I'm so happy. The phone my friend lent to me just isn't the same.. It was good, but not the same..

OOOOHHHH!!!!!!! GUESS WHAT ELSE!!! 

I'M GOING TO THE PASSENGER CONCERT!!! YAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!
I'm so excited. I'm taking Abby for her birthday present. It was going to be a secret.. But I can't keep things from her so I told her early.. Hehe.
I haven't actually bought the tickets yet, but I'll do that this afternoon.

Yeah, I don't really know what else to say.. 

I know what your all thinking, 'cool story lecy, you can stop now.'

Thank you for giving me your permission to stop now.

I'll leave since you don't want me anymore. *Sniffles*

*Runs away and hides in blanket fort*

The great people who inspire this young one.

La la la la, la la la la Lecys world!
 If you think I'm a cool kid then you've come to the right place. If you don't think I'm a cool kid you've also come to the right place. You're opinion may change soon. Just warning you. 

Well, tonight I thought I'd let you all in on a secret. It's not really a secret. But I thought I'd let you in anyway. I'm going to tell you about all the people who have inspired me throughout my life (so far). Most of whom are Authors of cool books that you should all read. 

Let's start with C. S. Lewis. He's dead now. In fact, most of the people I'm going to write about are. But I grew up with my mother reading his Narnia series to me at bed time. Then when I was older I got to study them all and learn about how he subtly put Bible themes into them. Sometimes they weren't subtle, but still they were great books to study. I also think that since he was an Atheist when he was young makes his books all the more better since he had the experiences of an Atheist which meant he could write more clearly on certain topics. His favorite book that he wrote himself, "Till we have faces," is a really weird but good book. He writes in a pagan point of view to prove the pagan views wrong. It was a difficult book to study, but definitely worth it. 

Next is Martin Luther. Not Martin Luther king, but the real Martin Luther. To me, he's one of the coolest people ever. He went against the Roman Catholic church, which back in the day was pretty much the center of everything (government etc). Imagine doing something like that! He was so passionate about Gods true Word that he didn't care if almost everyone was against him. All that mattered to him was getting the truth to people and stopping the corrupt church. Enough on him. If I keep going I won't stop. Trust me, the other day I wrote an essay on him just cause I wanted to. I'm not even a nerd. 

J. R. R. Tolkien. Friends with C. S. Lewis. I must admit, I know very little about Tolkien. But I enjoy his books very much. If I do ever write books I'd want them to be as cool as Tolkiens. 

George McDonald. A man who inspired both C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. Sadly, I haven't been able to find any of his books to read yet. But I've read some pretty cool quotes by him. He had some flaws, but everyone does. 

John Bunyan. Author of Pilgrims progress, possibly one of the greatest books I read as a child. 

Charles Spurgeon is also ridiculously cool. 

And the Apostle Paul. G. K. Chesterton, C. J. Mahaney, R. C. Sproul, and so many more. 

I've just realized that the only people I've written about are Authors. But they aren't the only people who have inspired me or had a big influence on my life. 

Vaulting has also had a big influence in my life. I've been vaulting for about 4 years now I think. And for the past 3 years it's been my dream to go to Germany and get really good and compete. My coaches and the people I train with inspire me. 

My brothers inspire me. I guess some of them are pretty cool.. My sister also inspires me. When I was little she was the coolest person ever. Then she got married and abandoned me with five older brothers. But she's still cool. 

My mum. I like her. She reads too much though. And it's a habit she's passed on to me. 
My dad is cool too. 

The coolest person ever though has to be Jesus. Without Him everyone would be damned.

I'm trying to think of people who inspire me that aren't Authors, but I can't think of anyone right now. So maybe I'll tell you who else inspires me when I think of them. 

I'm quite tired now so I'm going to stop now.

Goodnight Muppets!
