More than words.

If you mean it, say it.

If you don't, don't even say it.

Why say stuff to make the other person happier? Why promise or tell a person you'll do something for them when you probably wont. You just make the situation worse because you break a promise. Then its a lie.

Why do people say I love you but do these things to you. If you really LOVED someone, you wouldn't.

So is saying nothing at all better than saying something you don't mean? Or either way it's bad?

I find it so hard to trust or believe people. Only because the things I've been told, most of the time it ends up being false.

Christmas presents!

I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas!!!

I had a great, fun time with Aaron and his family! Me and Aaron drove about an hour and then we had to go on a ferry to get to his mum's house. :) The ferry ride was about 20 minutes and then we finally got off.

Everyone in Aaron's family are so nice!! It was very fun!!

Mum's Pie. YUMMY!

Aaron got me these!!!

Converse shoes

Tapout mouth guards for MMA

PlanetMax bag that I can use for training!

This is Aaron's brother's puppy Darcy! He was sooo cute!!!!!

I didn't have much money this year to get presents for people. But I know next year I'll be more prepared and make sure I save up heaps of money!!!

But I still had a great time! :) Spending it with people I love. Aaron also bought me a Throwdown (MMA brand) T-shirt which I love! It's so cool!!!!!

I'm very happy.

Love this quote!

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you learn to appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself...and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." Marilyn Monroe

Journal 1

I have a journal where I write down things when I feel the need too. I thought I'd share my first one.


Today I'm sitting at the beach on my lunch break. I think how beautiful the earth really is. I look up, I see the bright blue sky with no clouds whatsoever, gradually fading lightly and then I see the horizon, just dead straight wondering what really is out there.
The blue sea water calmly making waves, kids running around, people sun bathing, sea gulls gliding, bikes passing by, surfers riding waves, people going on walks, people holding hands, people working on construction, people exercising, old couples holding each others hand as they stroll along the beach.
We are all on this earth with some sort of purpose. Every individual I see, ever human begin right in front of me, we all have our own problems in life. We all create our own life, how we live. Every single person I see has been hurt somehow, has been in love, has lost someone special. Every moment of the day, every moment of every minute, every second goes by, we can never go back. It's done. Time is so precious.
One day we are gonna lose all of this. So I think spending every minute with happiness and telling someone how you feel is so important. We can never go back in time. If we could, then what is our purpose? What is the point if we can always go back in time, fix every little problem and start again? We would be spending too much time going back. We learn new things as we grow together, you teach others what you have learnt. Everything is so precious! That is exactly why everything I see right in front of me is so special. How I spend my time.
I don't want to waste my time if I'm going to think negative all the time, worry about everything, cry my eyes out for someone who doesn't even care about me. Just move on.

Everything is going to be okay. Even if things aren't going right in our lives, if YOU can make yourself happy, then its okay if everything around you is bad.


Beautiful Sunset

The sunset was amazing! It was so pretty!!!!

I think about how beautiful the place we live in is. Why would I want to feel sad, when there is so much beauty here. It's just a waste of time.

Just live. Be happy.

Switchfoot - You

Life is a Road Trip.

“Look at life through the windshield, not the rear-view mirror”
This is what I came up with....

Life is a journey. We are the drivers. We have the choice to steer our life how we want. We have roads with directions and roads without. There are many directions to take. But it is always up to you how you want to live your life.

We can stop, slow down or just keep moving on...

We can look back in the rear-view mirror but if you keep looking back, you're going to crash. Thinking too much into the past will get you distracted to the things right in front of you.

There is no point in a U-turn because what is done, is done. Why go all the way back when you have to drive through the same road. It will just remind you of the things you did/happened when driving through the same place.

The best thing to do is always look forward. Keep moving on. Look back only to remind you of the lessons you have learnt from the past.

But always have in mind not to speed up too fast or you will miss the important things and special opportunities that come to you.

So now, just enjoy the ride. Look around. See whats around you while your on this road.

Aaron bought me a monkey!! :)

Look around

Feels like a sharp pain to the stomach. That's what it feels like.

I was looking at some quotes because that's what I like to do when I'm either sad, happy, angry or just bored and I came up to this one.

"I don't want to die without any scars."
— Chuck Palahniuk

Instead of looking at your scars and thinking how bad life is for you and how much you wanna get away from it..

Look at them, accept it and look at the scars as something to remember you of all the bad things in life you went through, but you managed to stay strong!!!!!

Graduation tomorrow!

I am so excited!!!!!!!!!

I decided to actually wear my grade 12 formal dress instead of the red one I bought. Apparently more of the girls are wearing long gowns so I thought my formal dress would look better.

Now I'm just trying to put on some fake tan so I don't look so pale! :)

Hopefully I can find the charger for my camera!!! If I don't I'm going to be sad!! I'm sure it's somewhere around the house..

This is my boyfriend Aaron! We have almost been dating for 6 months but haven't had a photo together so we took some on webcam. I didnt have any batteries on my camera! :(! Ahaha. Sooo.. here they are!!

We met at the Martial Arts gym. He saw me and started talking to me in Japanese and I was like :O you can speak Jap!!!! Then we started to talk and get to know each other. He is such a nice guy. I am very happy!

Last day of College today! :(

Today was my last day of beauty college!! It was sad :(!!!

This year has gone too fast! I can't believe how fast it went by!! I remember going to the orientation day for this college and I was so nervous!!!! But I am so happy and glad I made friends there! Everyone was really nice and I will miss everyone!!!!

Today everyone took a plate of food and we pretty much just sat around and ate/took photos. :)

Now I can't wait for our graduation night on Saturday!! It's going to be so much fun! My whole family is coming plus Aaron!!!

I also got my nails done the other day! First time getting acrylics! I love them! Now I don't have to worry about my nail polish chipping!!

Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara

I bought this Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara yesterday and I love it!!

I got it in Blackest Black, Waterproof.

I like my lashes to be long with volume and this mascara does it all. The brush is big which gives my lashes a thicker look and it also separates my lashes. I applied about 2-3 coats and it looks like I'm wearing false eyelashes. <3

YAY! I was so stressed because I didn't know what to wear for graduation but I finally found one today!!

Its bright red, one shoulder dress! :)

I always wear black so I thought red would be different!

For myself.

One of the main reasons I post so much stuff about life is because it's something I need to write out for myself when I am sad, angry, happy etc. So that way I can always look back and read what I have written and keep myself together. I write it so I don't have to worry so much because if I don't, I get so much stuff built up. It just helps me.

I also just want to help other people who go through same kind of situations :)! So if you're reading it and I can help you just a tiny bit.. I am happy.


This was the little kitten I was looking after for a friend! So cute! >_< <3

Almost Over!

YYAYAYYAYAY!! I am almost at the end of this Beauty Therapy course!!

I graduate next Saturday on the 11th!! I am looking forward to it so much! Although I'll miss it, I'm really excited to just work alot next year and save money! :)

I will post some photos of my graduation too!
