My Bucket List

People have bucket lists. You know, things that you want to do before kick the old bucket and pass onto the next world. Jesus, even Karl Pilkington had one!

Many people put things like go bungie jumping, go swimming with dolphins, go on safari on theirs. But mime, mime is quite simplistic in my eyes. All I want to do is see my two favourite bands live, hopefully e at the front row and have a good f***king time while I'm there.

I have been re-watching some of my favourite clips on Youtube over the weekend, at each time I do, I am brought over with the constant fear that I may never get to experience seeing them live. f you know me well, then you know I am talking about My Chemical Romance and 30 Seconds to Mars. And honestly, if you judge me for the music I like then you have no idea why i love them so much. Its not just the music, its everything that they stand for. Be yourself. Don't take anyone's shit. You don't have to change yourself for anyone. You are worth happiness no matter what you think. But what makes me love these two bands so much is the fact that I could be in the worst possible place, but if I listen to their music, I completely change and almost instantly see the light.

I know that some people won't understand and won't get how music can do this too me. But some lyrics can change a person's mood, and when sung with such emotion- especially when you know that that person has been through so much pain and hurt- I know that I'm not alone.

I will post a video of each band live that I have watched so many times over the weekend, so please, enjoy...

My Chemical Romance Live at Reading 2011, Planetary (Go!)

30 Seconds to Mars Live (Concert Montage)


Can I just state that when I watched MCR live at Reading last summer on the TV I  started welling up and a tear fell when I couldn't be on that front row... I'll get there someday though, just you watch me...

New Thing 1 = Hydro-Fit

You know they say try everything once? Well I don't know who they are, but I would like to meet them and give them one huge high five. I have been trying to say yes to most things this year- you know, new year new you and all that stuff- so I have tried to be positive and have a laugh and not be afraid to make a fool out of myself.

This started last week when my mum asked me if I wanted to go to 'hydro-fit', it's basically water aerobics with floats attached to your feet and webbed gloves. It might sound stupid, but I just laughed for the whole hour. And I think that it actually worked... my legs felt like jelly afterwards and my arms ached quite a bit the next day- so it must have done something beneficial.

So I have decided that each week I am going to try something new, wether its food, an activity, maybe even a new routine of some sort! But I will put it on here of what I have trued that is new, so I can make a virtual checklist and if you try anything new then don't be afraid to comment, I would love to know and I might even try it myself to expand my list even further...


P.S I chose the picture at the top as I think it sums up pretty clearly that if you don't step out of your comfort zone, then you don't get to experience some of the better/funner things in life!

Go ahead, call me 4 eyes, I dare you...

Today I finally got my glasses. I'm not one of those people that are blind as a bat without them, I just need them for reading and stuff.

So I can finally say that I am a proud member of the 4 Eyes Club, and it feels great- even if you don't need glasses I suggest you go and buy a pair because I feel about 23% cleverer when I put them on... don't know why, I just do...

Dave Grohl for President

What more is there to say? I know I don't live in the States, but I would really consider it if this man was in charge. Can you imagine what America would be like?- They would truly rock...

London and Thunder

Thought that I would post a little thing before I go to London tomorrow with the school for a drama trip. I am really excited and I can't wait to see War Horse, Matilda the Musical, Blood Brothers the Musical and One Man Two Guvnors' (I think that's how you spell it...) this weekend.

I will post some pictures and things like that when I get back, and write a little something and all that. But I just thought that I would say that at this precise moment I am watching Tropic Thunder, a film that I love and haven't seen in ages. If you ever see it on TV then I suggest you watch it- Tom Cruise is amazing in it, so I will post a little video of one of his scenes that I love, and trust me, he is unrecognisable...  (warning, the song in the video is quite rude, so maybe put some headphones on or just watch it on mute if you a younger sibling or a elderly relative wandering around)- Tom Cruise Dance, Tropic Thunder
