Updates and the future for Clockwork Mice

Yeah, you guys already know that I'm a total sucker for nostalgia, so, while being moody and sulky with my family I am going to share with you some other things that make me go "NAWWWW.... I remember this!"
I generally only post things that I have been  interested in or looked up recently, so they're fresh in my mind.

Now, as a much needed distraction from year twelve, I've been spending a fair amount of time in the last  few weeks watching a BBC show called Young Dracula. About, surprisingly, vampires.

Now, without rambeling on about the show, I'll just mention that one of the reasons why I liked this show (and still do) is that while everything looks pretty fake, the actors and their characters all accept that, like it's deliberate. This casual approach makes the show seem, well fun. Which is good because it has a sort of tragic element running through it.
 Anyway, did I mention it has Keith Lee Castle as Count Dracula? He is a favourite actor of mine, and the Goth DJ Eddie from that movie Vampire Diary (Not based on the TV show/ books).

Apart from watching TV on YouTube and preparing for the never ending amount of SACs, I've been painting some dolls for my art assignment. I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to disclose, so I'll err on the edge of caution and so no more, but the do look damn good! XD

This is the second last week for unit 3 work, so after the exam week I'll be doing the last few parts of my school work for ever! Hell Yeah! I'm a strong believer in education, but at the same time I do not handle being at school very well. Things are getting really stressful though... =/

There's,  naturally, some other computer related stuff that's going on but I won't mention that here ;)

The next few weeks in school are crazy... from last Wednesday I had calculated that I had seven SACs in two weeks from that date (including EATs and SATs). Thankfully one is done and another two are half completed. Slowly ploughing through it, eh?

And btw, I bleached out some sections of my hair and put in some Pillarbox Red Manic Panic and some Blueberry Hill Fudge Paintbox so currently I have very multicoloured hair. =D

So I have been seriously thinking about the future for this dear blog. I know that I really don't have time to post as often as I would like, which is damn frustrating! Every couple of days would be perfect, but I don't have the free time to do that much research. (Especially considering that I am supposed to be spending ALL free time studying... not going to happen... ) So A.S.A.P I'm going to do another poll about the things that I would be comfortable and happy to write about. Once that's up do you think you all could do me a huge favour and let me know what you would like to see more of here. Maybe you have a cool idea that I could write about?

Anyway, this is again one of those 'nowhere' posts. Sorry, I must do better, I know.
Tonight I just got back from a Dog Birthday Party for one of my family friend's dog. There were some eighteen year olds/ teenagers and me mainly just spoke about year 12 and one of the guys did some cool card tricks. He's really good. But... yeah a Dog's birthday so that meant that there were about 10 dogs running around the house and even a meat based dog cake filled with bacon and sausage meat. All in all it was crazy, hectic and fun...
And here I am now, two glasses of wine later and trying to study for my Trig. SAC next week.

Until then

  1. Best fucking show, Young Dracula. Keith Lee makes me want to touch myself.

    Just saying.

  2. Agreed. He really is fantastic.
    And that is all.
