Dear Spammers

Do you ever actually achieve anything?

Yes, I'm going to complain a bit, sorry, but people who spam links really annoy me...

One 'blogger' in particular, I won't mention their name, owned 5 blogs - this seemed to me like a task worthy of dedication and real passion and talent for writing.
Oh, I was very, very wrong.

It seems harmless, but apart from being annoying, It's really undermining the effort that went into the posts. I was reading a very personal and tragic online diary entry from one poster and most comments were heart-felt messages, trying to cheer the poster up. This is where I first discovered this particular spammer.

Their reply to this sad yet compelling piece of writing was simply:

'Lmao, followed+ [5 blog links]'

It is hard to properly convey the inappropriateness of the comment without reavealing too much detail.

More annoying still was that
each 'blog' contained unoriginal content (something that really annoys me), most just a regurgitation of youtube links. Oh, and each was absolutely plastered with ads.

Side note: Does anyone else get annoyed by Ray William Johnson and SxePhil being able to make a living off regurgitating the internet with little contribution other than pulling faces?

I got all dressed up yesterday, with new boots, one of my favourite dresses and my old trusty tights when my mum informed me that I looked 'like a goth'.
I asked her why and she said it was because I'm apparently always in black. This isn't quite true. I'm mostly in greyscale. I definetely wouldn't call my style 'goth' and I thought I'd make a post to clarify.

Dressing 'goth' isn't really about all black. Similarly, a lack of colour doesn't make the style 'goth'. Greyscale can look smart and cute at the same time. Here are some examples of outfits that stand out, even without colour.

This coat is stylish a sophisticated, with just a hint of natural earthy colours with the skirt and tights. It's very suited for winter in the workplace or romps in the city. The next outfit is great for winter with the added bonus of being super cute.

I love the stripes, the frills at the bottom, the teddy-bear pin, the awesome hood and those cute eyes and ear flaps. There is nothing about this that I don't like! It just makes you want to go :3 if that were humanly possible.

This is a great example of splashing colour into a greyscale outfit. The necklace create a center focus and looks dainty surrounded by those cute white frills. I'm not too sure about the headband and the bag, I would've chose one or the other if it was me. But it's not, and she looks good, so this combo is still a winner.

This is a more casual look - for get togethers with friends or shopping trips or just being comfortable in general. Baggy clothes look cute, carefree and fun when paired with some awesome tights. Flats or heels go well with this outfit, but if you're short (like I am) you might want to opt for the heels so you don't disappear under that oversized tee.

This is one of my favourite examples. The dress looks angelic, sophisticated but so so comfortable. It also looks like it would be quite warm if you threw on some jeans, tights or long socks under it. The turtleneck and cute pom-poms really add the finishing touches on a gorgeous winter dress.

I hope I've shown how greyscale doesn't have to look drab or depressing - it can be cute and sophisticated. A splash of colour here and there never hurt anyone, but if you can't find one that suits your mood, it's not the end of the world. Black, white and grey can make some awesome outfit combinations!

Internet, why?

My internet has decided that it hates me. Basic webpages won't load anymore, while others seem to be fine. I don't even. I've decided to make a blog post to distract me from my rage. But I just thought I'd share my feelings about it, because that is healthy and I don't want to explode later with suppresed rage.

I've been busy with exam study so I thought I'd share with you my choice for my highschool dress up day. For those who do not live in Australia, on the last day of school, students in year 12 (our last year in high school) basically go ape shit, pull pranks and occasionally break things in an event we call 'muck-up day'. 

Because we're all crazy Australian teenagers, some of us decide that it's really funny to fill up waterguns with piss and squirt random people on public transport or in the city. I don't know if it's the same in all the states, but the Victorian private schools are usually the ones to take it too far (Being that rich would probably piss me off to, to the point where shooting piss on people is the only release).

In an effort to avoid this, my school has created 'dress-up day' - a genius plan that was hatched when some clever middle aged teacher said, 'hey! if we get them to dress up all funny on one day, they'll totally forget about that muck-up day thing that's all over the news!' I have to admit, pranks are very rarely pulled on muck-up day at my school, but that may be helped by the fact that they hire security guards for the day and the principal holds an assembly where he warns us we'll be expelled if we dare to 'muck-up'.

So, the point of this post is to show you all the costume me and my friends chose. I'm pretty much midget height and almost all my friends are male, so most of the time I look like an oompa loompa, without the orange. You have been warned.
