- Movie Deprived, That's Me!
When it comes to movies, I am living under a rock. I am yet to see so many classics! People stare and drop there jaws in shock when I mention that I haven't seen....
* Any of the six Star Wars movies. (Well, I've seen Ep 1 but I was six and don't remember it).
* The famous Lord of the Rings trilogy.
* Any of the Matrix films.
* All of the X-Men movies, except one.
* Gone With The Wind
....and many, MANY more!
I think I need a bit of help in the movie department.
- How To Cure Insomnia
Suffering from insomnia my friends? No need to fear, Emma is here!
Usually, I just stay up late answering Plinky prompts or talking to friends or (pretending that I'm) studying. But this isn't how to cure insomnia, it's how to make it happen.
If I can't sleep, I usually drink a cup of Chamomile tea with a bit of honey. After that, I'll usually just sit in my room for a bit, trying to wind down. I try not to look at the time, and then after half an hour of sitting around relaxing (not on the computer) I usually hop into bed, put on my eye mask to block out all light and ear plugs for noise and am usually asleep within 15-20mins or less.
- My Apologies
What needs to be said and what I need to say.
Do I deserve an apology? No. I deserve SEVERAL, all of which I know I will never get. I am saying no more on this particular matter.
Do I owe someone an apology? Yes. And because I'm too afraid to say it to your face due to the sheer awkwardness that will follow, I will apologise now:
"I kiss the cold, white envelope. I press my lips against [your] name."
Whenever I think of how you were affected by my decision, I imagine the music we love as the soundtrack. I remember elements of the past two and a half years and almost cry, because I'm sorry for so many things. I apologise for how stupid I was, and how I didn't pick up on any subtle hints. I apologise for how I continued to keep you waiting. I apologise for not doing anything further than the action already taken. I apologise for lying, and turning my back on you, twice. I sometimes picture how things might have been if I chose differently. I don't regret my choice, but I regret knowing that the very decision I made affected you so heavily. There will always be room in my heart for you, as a friend. Before it was something more, because for a long time, that's what I wanted you to be. I feel I can't apologise enough. If you understand, let me know we're even. I hope we are.
"[Because] I wanted to be, I wanted to be, wanted to be, your good friend."
- That's Me!bourne
Ah, Melbourne. It's a fabulous place, full of quirky people and hidden alleyways full of little places eagerly waiting to be discovered.
Many hollyweirds and wonderfuls live in the flourishing city of Melbourne. I was informed yesterday that apparently Daniel Radcliffe has a place in Toorak. Lisa McCune lives in Richmond, as does Ben Cousins (but the latter isn't really important). There's plenty of rich laywers, CEO's and doctors hanging around the place too. I'm not quite sure about other famous people that have dwellings here, I don't really care much for knowledge of the 'elite'.
As far as landmarks and attractions go, there's Fitzroy Gardens, which I love. There's Eureka Tower, Crown Casino Complex and the MCG, as well as a shiteload of other places. There's the Old Melbourne Gaol/Jail, the State Library with young hipsters frollicking about and kissing each other madly on its lawns, Parliament House, the Icehouse (yay figure skating!) and Lygon Street too. Oh, and Luna Park!
Annual events (or even just wonderful events) include the AFL Grand Final, Melbourne Fashion Week, Melbourne Internation Comedy Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, The Grand Prix at Albert Park and Melbourne Cup. There's the Big Day Out and the Annual Melbourne Show.
Other than well-known residents, landmarks and uber cool events, Melbourne is home to the number one university in Australia (at this point in time, seeing as the number one spot is interchangeable between The University of Melbourne and the Australian National University in Canberra). Melbourne is also home to possibly one of the worst public transport systems in the world. Of course, we particularly give thanks to Metro Train Services and Myki for making this possible.
Apart from a few minor things, I think Melbourne is a pretty liveable city, although some everyday living requirements aren't as inexpensive as I would like. It's home for many young and thriving people, determined to one day make a difference in the world. It's a city full of energy and life, one never gets bored. I could sit in Fed Square or on the Flinders Street Station steps (although so many sub-human species loiter around the area there) and just watch people live their day to day life. Or I just dawdle and wander around aimlessly, always discovering something wonderful. This is also what Melbourne is well known for, wanderers. I'm proud to be one of them, because for me, I'm always discovering something new and fantastic. And that's Melbourne alright, fantastic!
