It's me. Hi. Exams are almost over. I only have a science, an ancient and a French to go. On top of all this, I've decided to totally rewrite chapter two (delete, delete) and beta approximately three new fics on top of my two regulars. Bliss.

Oh, and the Socceroos take on BRAZIL (!!!) at 1 am Aussie Eastern time. I stayed up to watch them play Japan (can you say 3 - 1?) so I suppose I'll get up (or tape) this one. So, yeah. Australia vs. Brazil, hence the icon.

World Cup = <3

Hiiii everybody!

Ahem. Last night I had this awesome dream. It was Teh Ultimate. I found Book 7 randomly on this bus like, a year before the release date and was like, OMG whoa! Dude, it's HP7!

Seriously. And I read 112 pages on this three minute bus ride.

Like I said, this dream was Teh Ultimate.

Anyway, in my dream I was reading it and the DIAGLOGUE! The DRAMA! The SNAPE! The H/Gness! The MOST AWESOME-EST BOOK EVER! And then I was like, no one else in the world has the book so I can like write fanfic about it! You know how fanfic doesn't make total sense = total plot holes? Well this had none! I mean, it was Book 7, after all. It linked up everything - the Horcruxes, the Snape/Dumby thing, Lily's secret past (shock!) , why some peeps become ghosts and what Myrtle's last name was. In case you're wondering, it was Gryffindor! Oh my God, she was Godric's last descendant! And I found out all this in 112 pages!!! So I can't tell you who won in the Harry vs. Voldy showdown. I know. Curse the alarm clock.

So I wrote this fanfic (and lost the book = Teh Sadness) and I had all these reviews and people were like, are you JKR? And I was like, maybe... -shifty eyes-.

I only wish I remembered word-for-word what it was like. The Harry & Ginny scene made me cry. In my dream. And then I was like --

Okay, what? I am seriously obsessed. Wishing that I had the transcript of a dream I had a 4:30 this morning. Hey, what can I say? My fandom helps me sleep at night.

Someone should make that an icon

Going to the show today. Should be fun.

Argh, so excited about October. My Auntie is having a baby - I only have one other cousin, on my dad's side, and Louise is thirty, so, yeah. And although Auntie Megs is living in Perth she's coming up for Christmas with Bubs in tow. Am all excited about babies at the moment because last night my parents went to a farewell party and I was forced to go along. All the kids there were under eight, which suited Anton and Emmie fine but me and Charlotte were like, great. BUT THEN... Oh my god, babies. They were so cute. Ha ha, I'm not normally one to go that gaa-goo over kiddies but, seriously, these ones were cute. Guess who's having a two-month-old baby in their house for Chrissie?

Today I had three exams - Maths, Science and HPE and I totally bombed them. Yay! I was really stressed over the weekend trying to do some last-minute study and taking the laptop to the Mothers' Day Picnic really paid off, although I'm sure the random in-laws I've never met (uh, one of my cousins is getting married) thought I was incredibly anti-social. Hey, I played footy, didn't I? And went in for a bit of a paddle. And then back to work.  

Two assignments were due today - Geography and History. I think I did okay. And English deadline tomorrow but I've had that out of the way for a million years. 

Woo. So tired and yet, so relieved. 

Going to go write the next chapter of TLC which is waaaaay angsty. I'm going to get Pia to cut down on the angst or get one of those **SPECIAL BETAS** to do it. Ha. 

Oh, and my fantastic run on Saturday indeed got recognition. Coach called it "run of the year". For me, duh. Not the whole school; I'm not that good. 

I'll be seeing you, Livia.

Hi, it's me again. =D

It's only ten to ten right now but as I have a Maths assignment and a Geography essay to write before Monday, today being Saturday, I thought I'd give y'all an update.

Okay, I was up at 6 am this morning for the last cross country run of the season. Heaps of fun. Surprisingly, I was in an excellent running mood. Ha. That almost never happens. I didn't have to use any of my usual mind tricks - Just run to the next tree and it'll be over, If you make it to that wheelie bin you can lower the pace, C'mon, you can do this, you've bloody TRAINED for it, Only 5 more k's to go, etc. No, I had one of my best runs ever. I got it all together: pace, breathing, mindset, legs, posture, spirit... and I ended up with a PB for 4km - 17:43. That's a good 40 sec off AND I broke the 18 min barrier.


And I've run 57km this year. So far, lol. I wish the high I got at the end lasted all day. I felt really good and I normally never do. Usually I push myself to the point of throwing up. Ew. I don't think I could ever be bulimic.

Anyway. Hey, did you know that the little bump of your wrist is called an ulna? Hehe, ulna.

Aaaand tomorrow is Mothers' Day. I've got to get Mum something today. Dad's in America as we speak, in Boston, and his flight has been delayed 24 hours. Bummer, because he was supposed to be home tomorrow. He gave me a 20 for Mum but I've checked the prices of those random Willow figures and the one I want (a mother and two kids, too bad there's four of us) is $40. Cough up, kids. Was going to take Emmie in with me, but she has to go with Anton to soccer. Suspect mother does not trust me, 14, with five-year-old sister. Hello, who babysat the other night until two in the morning? Thank-you. Seven-year-old brother thinks he is Beckham. Am excited about the World Cup, what with Australia qualifing for the first time in - what? - 30 - 70 years or whatever. Go the 'Roos!

I highly doubt that they'll make it past the first round. Haha, they verse Brazil in their third game.

Poor dears.

Faring well,
Liv. xx

I love the '&' symbol. To me, it represents perfection. Coz I can't draw them.

Today was an eye-opening kind of day. Firstly, at 6:46 this morning I was informed that one of my close childhood friends, who is now a distant, say-hello-to-awkward-hug kind of friend, had sex with the informant's ex. Then the said friend confided in me at lunchtime. Why do people always confide in me?

She's fourteen years old. Fine, fifteen in July but, hell. I thought I knew Jessie. Huh, I guess not. It's just... I feel we're growing up to fast. My group of friends, my peers... Sure, I'm a year younger than them all but whoa. It's part of the whole high school experience, according to my cousin Louise, but... if I was the kind of person who got depressed I would be. But I'm not. I'm a happy-go-lucky kid who sings on public buses and plays spin the test tube in Science. Maybe it's because I haven't had a boyriend. Maybe I can't deal with it because I'm religious. Maybe I can't let go of my childhood and the innocence that goes with it. Maybe I don't like change. I've always suspected that. Just my luck that I was born into a family of movers .

Then Alicia told me that she hates Lizzie. Friction.

On the funny side, our Maths teacher, Mr. Cambridge, forgot to show up to class today. Convenient. So we took it upon ourselves to play trash-block-A-11-and-clean-it-up-freakin'-fast-when-Sarah-calmly-reminds-everyone-that-the-bell-goes-in-two-minutes.

Fun times.

Oh, and everyone is obsessed with the song, Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog, y'know, Joy to the World. I downloaded it on to my crappy little MP3. It's such a happy song. Sung it at the top of my lungs with Megan and Bindi walking home from school. Got weird looks from strangers.

Um, I'm writing Harry Potter fanfic at the mo', a fact of which I am both fairly embarassed about and fairly proud of. I love to write.

AND I have a new occupation. Last week it was a roadie. This week it is a teacher librarian. No, really. I secretly think I might kinda be good at it. I am passionate about kids reading and I love libraries. Plus I don't need a high OP and my dad is a recruitment manager (resume writer, need I say more) and my mum is a teacher herself. Only problem is, I am the most disorganised human being on the planet. Oh well.

Until next time,

Hey, I made a journal. And it's LIVE, apparently.

Neato. Gnarly.

Well, I'm going to try and write in this everyday. TRY. Think of this as some kind of mid-year New Year's Resolution. A Mid-Year Resolution.

And I've also decided to write for me. Just for me. No fancy HTML or CSS or whatnot. Just me and my plain journal. And I don't have any friends here, or anyone I know. I'm just going to write what I feel like. Moody, bitchy, depressed, happy, random, angry... whatever. This is the naked Olivia. Me as I come.
